(( Day 2, Bridge, USS Atlantis )) :: Lixx stepped off the turbolift. She had come here after having done her basotile and taking a shower. She was ready for a new day in a new rank. She didn't really know what duties her new rank would entail, so sh= e just continued as she had been doing since they had returned. She moved over to the helm station and initiated her daily Level 1 systems diagnostics. She knew this would take some time, so she set about ensuring that the shields and deflector systems were tuned for optimum performance. They weren=E2=80= =99t needed here in port, but she wanted them to be optimized for the minute they would be needed. As the last mission had shown, Atlantis, could be summoned for duty at a moment's notice. :: (( Short timeskip - about 2 hours )) :: She had been working for a few hours now. She had gotten the deflectors about as finely tuned as she could hope to get them while powered down and in port. She was nearly there with the shields. Though technically shields were the purview of Engineering and Tactical, her station was one that could activate and alter them. She wanted to be sure that when it became necessary for her to do so, she could do it with maximum efficiency. Suddenly, her commbadge chirped and was followed by the sound of the Captain's voice. She slid out from under the console and tapped her commbadge to answer the Captain. :: Brell: =3D/\=3D Captain Brell, to Lieutenant Maeli =3D/\=3D oO Lieutenant Maeli. That is going to take some getting used to. Oo Maeli: =3D/\=3D Maeli. Go ahead, Captain. =3D/\=3D Brell: =3D/\=3D Would you come up to my ready room please. =3D/\=3D Maeli: =3D/\=3D Aye, sir. On my way, =3D/\=3D :: As she stood up and began heading toward the Ready Room doors, she wondered what was going on. Were they getting ready to get underway again? She had already noted Lieutenant Commander Raga and Lieutenant Serala separately enter the Ready Room, their time there overlapping. Nothing especially significant about that, she supposed, but now she was being summoned. That usually meant having to fly something somewhere. :: :: She stopped outside the doors waiting for permission to enter. :: Brell: Enter. :: She entered his ready room and she noted his smile as he was apparently eating his lunch and washing it down with a steaming cup of something. :: Maeli: You wanted to see me, sir? Brell: Please have a seat Lieutenant. :: Gesturing to the coffee and pastries. :: Have some if you'd like. Maeli: Thank you, sir. :: She took a pastry, but she knew she probably wouldn't eat more than a bite or two. Bolian food tended to be a li= ttle too fishy for her tastes - which was odd because she had grown up on a small island whose primary source of income had been from fishing. :: Brell: I wanted to discuss something with you. Commander Williams and I were quite impressed with your abilities and handling of multiple system while keeping us in step between the two Korri freighter during our last mission. Maeli: Thank you, sir. It was what I was trained to do. I really enjoy flying, but my instructors knew I was capable of much more than just piloting. Brell: To that end I have changed your official position on this ship to HCO officer. Standing for Helm, Comm, and OPS. While there will still be a crewman on the bridge at the ops terminal your console will be configured for you to handle all of the same functions while also flying the ship. We feel you are up to the challenge of this position. Any questions? Maeli: No, sir. Thank you for your confidence in me. I will do my best not to let you down. I should probably tell you, though, that my engineering skills are barely passable. I was told I needed to have them because most ships operate in the configuration you just mentioned, and that when I wasn't working at the helm I might be expected to back up Engineeri= ng. But my scores in the Academy, as you may have seen, were barely high enough for me to graduate. Still, I will give it my best. Brell: Response? Maeli: No, sir. Not an excuse. I merely wanted to let you know where my limitations are. Perhaps, I might benefit from some time down in Engineering learning from them while we are still docked?
