Mission: Welcome to 2399!
Location: USS Eminence, Dock 8, New Utopia Shipyards
Timeline: Present


=Boarding Ramp/Airlock, USS Eminence=

Jett groaned as she stepped onto the ship. Looking around, she stopped the first officer she saw. “Ensign, where is the security officer who’s supposed to be at this airlock?”

“I…um. The engineers asked for my help moving a crate, sir,” he answered, a bit sheepishly. The kid tried but he couldn’t meet her eyes.

Looking over his shoulder, Jett spotted a guy in a station jumpsuit. He was about the same age as the ensign, slim, with a bright smile and green eyes that almost seemed to glow. Oh, young love. It would be adorable if it didn’t involve the kid abandoning his post.

“Those pesky crates. You ask him out, at least?”

“Working up to it, sir. Are you gonna tell my chief about this?” he asked.

“Depends, are you station security or Eminence security?” He’s going to need the ghost of James T. Kirk himself if he’s assigned to this ship. Cute as Jett found this whole thing, she couldn’t abide the lapse in protocol. New Utopia was only new because the last station was destroyed by internal forces.

“Station, sir.”

Letting out a heavy sigh, Jett shook her head. “No, I am gonna send someone to relieve you once I’m settled, and you’re gonna tell your chief. You’re lucky you don’t belong to me.” She smiled. “Lieutenant Commander Jhettao zh’Vrini reporting for duty as chief security and tactical officer. Note the time and date in the ship’s log.”

“So noted, Commander,” the kid said as he entered the information into his PADD.

“Is Captain Polto onboard?” Jett asked.

“No, sir. You and the chief nurse are the only senior officers on the ship.”

Jett had yet to meet Lieutenant Commander Springs, or anyone else for that matter. Captain Greener had wooed her away from the USS Callisto with the promise that she’d be able to do her thing without a ton of interference. But the brass pulled him for some other mission and Captain Polto was tapped to replace him. Aside from his basics, Jett knew next to nothing about the guy. Even her dad had no idea who he was. Could be good, could be bad. They were going to have to wait and see.

“Thank you, Ensign. Resume your duties.”

Stepping around him, she made her way through the brand-new ship and into the turbolift at the end of the corridor.

"Deck two."

Tapping out a quick message on her PADD for one of the ship’s security officers to take over at the airlock, Jett hoped like hell the change over took place before the captain arrived.

“Computer, notify me when the captain arrives.”
