Doing the rounds

Posted on Wed Mar 15th, 2017 @ 1:20pm by Lieutenant Commander Solan Jekkar & Lieutenant JG Ra'jirr Rrareth

Mission: Currents of Change
Location: Strategic Operations Department Office.

Solan had settled in enough on Sirona, the Commander decided to take a tour of his new Posting and check in with Officers from the Senior Staff. The Andorian used the directions from the Ships Computer to find his first location.

He pressed the chime and waited.

"Come in," Ra'jirr said, the translator allowing the purring rumble of his voice to accent his english. He stood when he saw the commander. "Commander, welcome aboard." He said, reaching his hand to the Andorian.

The Commander bowed his head and shook the hand of the Caitan man. "Lieutenant Rrareth, hello hope you don't mind me dropping by to say hello." The Commander smiled.

"Anytime Commander. I was just reviewing some of the data about our last mission." Ra'Jirr said, motioning to the piles of PADDS that littered his desk. They were neatly ordered, but there were a lot of them.

"Yes the Shadow...." The Commander commented as he noticed the pile of PADDS. "Commander Dhej has just filled me on that situation. Interesting adversary."

"Certainly, and why I'm trying to do my best to figure out as much as I can about them. For example, why did they pick the locations that they chose. If we can figure that out, then we might be a step closer to beating them." Ra'jirr said.

The Commander nodded. "Have you come up with anything concrete so far?" He asked curiously.

"Not yet, too few data points. I suspect that revealing themselves was part of the plan. I suspect that there were other reasons for their attack. I also suspect that their using much more primitive systems then they are letting on. However, it's all speculation. All we can do at the moment is wait until we either catch them or they reveal themselves in some way again."

"When I was a Criminologist and Investigator, I found it suitable to let my findings come to me and occasionally see what I could dig up." The Andorian chuckled. "Or ruffle a few feathers."

"Ruffling a few feathers is a great idea, the problem is that we don't know how to ruffle their feathers yet." Ra'jirr commented. "For now, I think the key to figuring out what they are up to is why they caused the explosion. If I knew what their objectives were, that would make things easier to track down. But again, almost everything we have is speculation."

"Well let me know if you need any help, I maybe the Executive Officer but I'm also a trained investigator and would be more than willing to help." The Commander said with a bow of his head.

Ra'jirr nodded, "Both explosions seem to have originated inside the station. The second one appeared deliberately set to kill as many of the rescue personnel as possible. However, it means that they need to access the station. The question is how. If you could assist with figuring that out, it would be helpful." Ra'jirr suggested.

Solan pondered it for a second. "Possibly as a Station inhabitant who knew the workings and routines, also and this is a bad thought they are currently or have served in Starfleet."

Ra'jirr shrugged, "Probably, but I don't want to rule out a more exotic explanation just yet."

Solan nodded. "In terms of resources how is Strategic Operations doing?" He asked him with a glance round the Office. "I know you're not at the same level as some on this Ship but I still see the value in your Department."

"For a strategic operations department, we're doing pretty well. Typically, we're one of the parts that is understaffed on most ships. It's always been known that with Sirona's mission it would need a dedicated Strategic Operations staff. So we have one, and so far, I think the work that their doing has been excelent."

"Good, if there is anything you need please let me know." Solan said with a nod.

"I will, probably when we find out what our next mission is." Ra'jirr replied.

Solan nodded. "I'll leave you to it. Good day Lieutenant."
