A turbulent wake up

Posted on Tue Jul 20th, 2021 @ 2:55pm by Lieutenant JG Hank Solomon

Mission: The Departure
Location: on patrol


(Personal quarters)

Hank was sleeping soundly when he got woken up by both, the sunned shaking of the ship and the yellow alert claxon setting off. Took him a little bit to realize the ship was no more proceeding at warp speed and it was indeed stuck in space.
He checked the time: 0500. He wouldn’t have been on duty till 0800 ship time, but this unexpected stop was definitely not intentional, and he thought that he would have been much more useful to the captain on the bridge rather than in his quarters.
He stood and dressed up in his uniform before leaving the room headed for the bridge.

(Bridge, USS Eminence)

The turbolift doors slid open and Hank set foot on the bridge of the Eminence. He saluted the captain and the other officers that were currently busy running scans and diagnostics.
“Captain, what’s the status? My turn should start in a few hours, but I thought you might have needed me here right now”
And waited for the captain to explain the situation and give him some orders.
