Asking for Assistance

Posted on Sat Jul 1st, 2017 @ 5:57pm by Lieutenant JG Astrid Nilsson & Ensign Simon Hunter

Mission: Episode 1: The Emperor's Throne
Location: turbolift
Timeline: MD4 - 1700 Hours

After the briefing had finished, Simon had followed Lieutenant Nilsson to the turbolift as he was heading down to the office of the Chief Operations officer to check the reports that might have been left, Although he had been given Engineering as well, but knew the Lieutenant would not like that one bit. He said," Lieutenant, May I speak with you a moment?" as the doors slide open for them both to enter.

"Sure." Astrid said, Still nursing her freshly repaired wrist. "I read the Engineering report you put together. Nice work, Ensign."

"Thank you Ma'am," Replied Simon looking back at her, He continued," I could not have done it without the help of Ensign Sheila Grissom who assisted me with running Engineering," as he noticed her wrist, He asked," How is it Ma'am?" as the doors closed behind them.

"She's a good worker. She knows her stuff." Astrid replied as she rubbed her wrist. "It'll be fine, just got to rest it for a few days."

"I know she is," Replied Simon looking back at Astrid, He continued, "whilst your recovering I'm going to ask for Sheila to liaise between Myself and the Engineering teams," as he knew that Sheila could do the job and that he respected her judgment on what was happening down in the Engine room.

"Sounds like a good plan." Astrid said with an agreeing nod. "I'm guessing you'd like Ensign Grissom transferred to Operations, as you're now a little short handed."

"Would you mind?"" asked Simon as he hoped this was something they could agree on, As he knew that he needed someone who could do the job as a section head.

Astrid did some staff calculations in her head, "I'm pretty sure we could spare her for the rest of the mission, as long as you agree to let her help out in Engineering if its needed."

"Yeah of course and the same If I'm short staffed again," replied Simon as having a floating member of staff between the two departments meant that she could pass the requests for spears quicker and be processed Quicker, He finished," This could benefit both departments with this arrangement, what do you think?" posing the question.

"I agree." Nilsson said, before realizing the turbolift wasn't moving. "Deck 2." She ordered before the lift started the short journey down to the next deck. "I'll do the paperwork and run it passed Lieutenant T'Rhe."

"Thanks," replied Simon as he looked back at Astrid, he stated," And don't worry about Engineering we will look after it for you," as he knew that she would try and come in every day to check up on things instead of resting her arm. but he would have Sheila send her daily reports to save her so that she didn't have to attend Engineering.

The turbolift came to a stop and the doors opened. "I'm sure it is, if you need me you know where to find me." Astrid said before stepping out and heading for her quarters.
