Location: Transporter Pad
Timeline: MD002 1020 hrs
Adria wanted to try something different, she wanted the senior staff to invite one of the new crew coming in today. She had chosen, to meet with Lieutenant Wolfe, there new counselor. She watched as he materialized onto the transporter padd.
Spencer materialized onto the padd, immediately looking around as he walked off. “Lieutenant Wolfe,” he identified himself, judging from the uniform he assumed it was Captain Solwick in front of him.
"Are you asking me, or telling me?" Adria asked him, wondering if he was going to request permission to come aboard.
Spenser smiled. He liked to be different when coming on board. It gave him a first impression. “Permission to come on board, Captain Solwick.”
"Granted, welcome to the Pioneer, Counselor Wolfe." Adria said, as she reached out to shake his hand.
Spenser shook her hand. “I am glad to be serving here.” He replied. “I spent some time reading up on your ship and crew, quite impressive.”
"What have you learned?" Adria asked, as she lead them out of the transporter room, and out to the turbolift.
“You are an excellent command officer,” Spenser replied. “And it shows through your crew. They have great records and are very loyal.”
"The same can be said about you." Adria pointed out to him, as she took a moment, to allow his compliment to sink in. That was very nice of him to say.
“It helps doing something you are good at,” Spenser explained. “I like helping people and I am a great listener.”
"I have a feeling, a few may need your services, we are going to be spending a lot of time on the border, keeping the peace with the Klingon Empire." Adria pointed out to him.
“I am sure they will,” Spenser nodded. “I am up for it, I will do my best to ease their minds.”
"I appreciate that, we need every able body, at their assigned positions, especially in the middle of a crisis." Adria pointed out to Spencer. They entered the turbolift.
“You can definitely count on me, Captain,” Spenser assured her. “I am a team player.”
"Glad to hear it. Here we are deck 3." Adria said, as they got out of the turbolift.
“We seem to be taking on a few new crew,” Spenser replies as he looked around. “Normal transfers I assume?”
"Just left space dock, two days ago. To rescue the crew of the USS Aries, now we are setting a course for Klingon Border." Adria pointed out to him.
“I hadn’t had a chance to read up on the ship’s current missions,” Spencer admitted. “I was hurrying to get here but I will as soon as I am settled.”
"Plenty of time to catch up, right now lets get you settled in. Here is your quarters." Adria said, as they made it to his door. "Get settled in today, and start tomorrow, does that work for you?"
“Yes Captain,” Spencer nodded. “Have a good day.” With that he headed into his quarters.
