[Ilandria - Planet Surface]

Steve trotted happily behind T'Ra and Evan as the pair strolled along, slowly meandering back into town. T'Ra looked over her shoulder to make sure the raptor was still following, finding that the little guy had stopped. He cocked his head, watching an insect buzz around. T'Ra stooped down to pick him up, affectionately scratching him under the chin. Steve's foot began to thump.

"You already have a cat," Evan said, "what do you need a raptor for?""

"He's cute. Plus Ardyn thought he'd be good for the baby."

They walked a few steps in silence as Evan tried to formulate a reply. But instead he asked, "Do you think they're within range yet?"

T'Ra shrugged, tapping her comm badge.

"They must be about to enter orbit, Evan mused, taking another glance at his watch. T'Ra nodded. Still holding Steve, she tapped her badge to reply.

-/\-Acknowledged, Discovery. This is Jones. We are ready to beam aboard at your convenience. -/\-

She still pined for the Shran, but duty called and no doubt the Discovery had its fair share of adventures. And now they have Steve,, T'Ra thought as they were enveloped by a blue light to be beamed aboard.

[Ready Room]

T'Ra had passed Steve off to Evan before they were beamed aboard. It probably wouldn't be appropriate to have a velociraptor running amok in the ready room. Evan would deposit the little guy in their new quarters before heading down to take a look at sickbay.

In the ready room, three officers in red were already present and waiting, two of which she already knew. "Na'shaya, Kirok, Mr. Wu," she said with a brief incline of her head. She offered a nod of respect to the other officer. "Pleasure to meet you, Commander."

[Ready Room]

"Very good" Kirok replied.  He handed the padd back to Tekin.  Then turned to Wu.

"The UFP President has been assassinated.  So, I'm being called back to the Alpha Quadrant.  I will be with the Shran for a short while, then possibly the Colomubus" Kirok said.

"T'Ra Jones will be taking over here as the Commanding Officer.
 This will allow the Discovery to continue it's mission of exploration in the Delta Quadrant.  She should be arriving at any time now" he added.

[Ready Room]

"Calice." Alex swore softly, stunned by the news. For the president to have been killed...it was practically unthinkable. Who would be insane enough to murder the head of the entire Federation? "Do we know by whom? And why haven't we heard about this on the newsnets?"

The second part of Kirok's announcement almost snuck by unnoticed. "T'ra Jones?" he glanced quizzedly towards Tekin, having expected the commander to move into the big seat if and when Kirok left. I'm sure there's some game or reason behind it...just not one that I can understand. "I served with her briefly onboard the Gettysburg, years ago."

Almost on cue, the blue hue of a transporter beam filled the room and the subject of discussion materialized next to them. I wonder if Kimball's got his ear to the door or if this is just a coincidence, Alex thought to himself, bemused. "Wa'na'shau, Captain." He replied, smiling to see four golden pips adorning Jone's collar again. "And welcome back to Discovery."

[USS Discovery, Corridor]

While Awen had been uploading data into the computer, she and the others in the Science department received official word that the crew was to have shoreleave on Ilandria and also that Kinley had been transferred off the ship. Apparently their former Chief Science Officer was going to be doing some research. The other big news was that one reason they were going to Ilandria was to rendezvous with their new Commanding Officer, Captain T'Ra Jones. Truthfully, Awen was surprised that Nevir hadn't been promoted to the role, but Starfleet didn't always make choices that made sense. To be fair, T'Ra's record was rather impressive, but still.

Awen wasn't sure when she would meet the new Commanding Officer. Perhaps during shoreleave, or maybe not until her next bridge shift. The Bajoran had also heard some ridiculous rumors about the captain having a holographic raptor as a pet. If they were going to make something up, surely they could come up with something more believable...

Knowing the data transfer would take a little while and that it wasn't every day that the crew got to enjoy some shoreleave, Awen had returned to her quarters to pack and was now on her way to the transporter room. She hadn't packed a lot, but enough that she could be down on the surface for a couple days without returning to the ship, if she so chose.

[Transporter Room]

The Bajoran walked into the transporter room, nodding to the transporter operated as she stepped onto the transporter pad. "One to beam to the Ilandrian Gardens," she said, standing as still as she could as she waited.

Nodding, the transporter operator replied, "Aye, Ensign. I'll beam you just outside the gardens. Also, I've been asked to remind you to keep your comm badge with you in the event there are any updates from the ship that you need to be made aware of. Enjoy your shoreleave."

Awen raised an eyebrow at the extended speech regarding her comm badge. Why wouldn't she keep it with her? That was standard protocol. Before she could think about it any further, she heard and felt the transporter beam envelop her.

[Ilandria, Ilandrian Gardens]

Moments later, Awen re-materialized on the planet surface, just outside the gardens as promised. The gardens were supposed to be quite beautiful, with different sections and features... Ponds, sculpted trees and shrubbery, flowers, decorative grasses...

Awen glanced around; the gardens were a little bit further from some of the other main areas of the settlement, but still fairly close. People wandered around at a leisurely pace - no rushing or running. Overall, it seemed like a nice, relaxing place to visit.

For today, her plan was to spend most of her time in the extensive gardens. If she found a nice, quiet spot, she might even do her meditation here as well. The following day she was hoping to visit the ruins she'd heard about. She hadn't always been interested in ruins and archaeology, but recently found that it appealed to her. Perhaps it was the mysterious nature of them...much like the mysterious nature of some particles and spatial bodies she studied.

After a final glance around the area, the Bajoran entered the gardens, walking under the trellised ivy entrance. A smile crossed her lips as she took in the first formal garden now surrounding her. Someone had painstakingly arranged the flowers to form a beautiful pattern on a hillside. She couldn't wait to see what else awaited her.

I'm sure there's some game or reason behind it...just not one that I can understand. "I served with her briefly onboard the Gettysburg, years ago."


[Ready Room]

"Indeed" Kirok reply to Wu's first comment.  Then he fail silent for a moment.  Trying to determine what additional information he could share.

"Sadly, members of a starship from Task Force 10 have been accused.  But not convicted as of yet.  And I think they are trying to prevent unrest in the UFP until a suitable replacement is found" he said.

[Ready Room]

When Kirok began to hear the sound of transporter activity in the room, he stood.  He wait until T'Ra materialized.  The he bowed to her.

"Na'shaya.  T'Ra Jones.  It is agreeable to see you again.  I wish I had more time to meet with you.  But I have pressing matter to get to.  Are you ready to take command of the Discovery?" he asked pointedly.

Nevir stood up as soon as he saw the first prick of light, mostly in a sign of respect.  Wu probably had a dozen or more questions, but Nevir would have to fill him in later.  Personally.  After he spoke with T'Ra.  He nodded at the greeting, but kept silent.

On queue, Nevir took the PADD he was holding and brought up the official notification.  While usually they would have a passing off ceremony with all officers present... this was not a usual time.

"Considering the circumstances, I figured a quiet change of command would be best.  That way the Admiral can be off immediately.  I'll brief the rest of the senior staff afterwards.  Sir, I have it ready." he said, holding the PADD back out to Kirok with the change of command program up and ready, starting with the official voice command prompt.

As Steven arrived he was greeted by the operator who nodded towards the pad, "Captain Jones will be here any second sir" the crewman reported just as the beam came to life illuminating the room with it's blue glow.

 "Thank you Chief" Black replied as he stiffened his body ready to welcome the Captain aboard.

Kirok looked from Tekin to T'Ra.  "I do concur" he said.  He turned slightly back to Tekin.

"Computer.  Move all command function over to T'Ra Jones.  Authorization Kirok Delta Chi Rancher 19 91" he said.

The computer beeped and replied that the command functions had been successfully transferred.  "As I said, I have a pressing matter to get to.  But I wish you all long life and peace" he said after raising his right hand and parting his fingers. 

Then he tapped his combadge with his left hand.  "One to beam out, destination USS Lirpa" he said.  Then he vanished in a swirl of blue light.

"Welcome aboard Mr Buehler, I am Lt Commander Steven Black, I assume the Admiral and you wife have urgent business to take care of". Black stepped forward and looked past the man to where the little creature was still on the pad looking around quizzicaly.

"If you would like to come with me sir, i'll take you to the Captain's Quarters unless there is anywhere else you need to be". With that he stood back and gestured to the door.

The hairs on his neck were tingling as he wondered why the Captain had beamed  directly and not had the usual transfer, maybe the scuttlebutt was true after all.

[Personal Quarters]

They were in orbit around Ilandria so some of the rumors were true. They were to enjoy shoreleave. LK gave another tug on her tunic trying to get the hem straight. Finally, she stepped back to see her reflection from top to toe. Yep. All is well with the universe. She watched herself smile broadly. Well, maybe not the entire universe, but in mine it is.

Reaching for her console, Dr. Reede hoped there would be a message there. But nothing showed up. Surely there would be a briefing. If the other rumors were true, Admiral Kirok was leaving for San Fran and they were getting a new captain. Another rumor said the new captain was a Gorn. LK shook her head and sighed. Gorns were not the most pleasant of species to deal with.

LK walked to the door of her quarters, waited the few seconds for the door to slide open and headed for the nearest turbolift. Once inside, she said softly, "Bridge."

[Ready Room]

Nevir stood in silence, waiting only to take the PADD after his Admiral finally left in a beam of light.  The situation was so unprecedented that he didn't even want to take the time to walk to the transporter room.  Alone with just his new Captain, as well as his second officer, Nevir smiled, but shook his head.

"I put myself on the second rotation, I've been on this ship under fire for two conflicts, I can wait a bit longer.  Honestly, I figured that you wanted a run-down on the current mission we have out here.  The Borg incident was unfortunately a sidetrack." he said, turning to look at the Chief Flight Officer.

"Alex, I know this was not expected, but it was necessary.  I specifically requested for Captain Jones to take command.  I'm... well, you know what's happened in my recent past.  I want to command, but not under these conditions.  T'Ra was recently a first officer as well, and a damn good one despite the situation with her ship and crew.  She has the confidence I still lack, and I requested her as a model to understand what it means to go from Commander to Captain.  We both discussed the duration of this command, and Starfleet thinks it's best for her to remain separated while her ship is investigated."

He turned back to T'Ra.  "I was going to set up a meeting with the senior staff to inform them of the change of command, but right now I feel it would be best that we not mention the situation with the Federation.  We're out of their space, and I want the crew focused on our goal in the quadrant.  I'd rather take the brunt of anger for being left out of the loop, than a crew without focus in a combat or diplomatic situation. I hope you both would understand?"
