Mission 0 - Pre-Launch  Reply with quote  

Lou took a deep breath as he looked at the Nebula Class Starship, U.S.S. Sutherland in it's berth that he was now in command of. The Captain took pause for a moment at the gangway before he boarded the Fleet's newest ship. He walked up the gangway to the nearest Turbolift to take him to Deck 8 getting himself to his quarters to prepare himself and the ship for it's first mission into the Gamma Quadrant.

With his belongings stowed away he knew the ship would have a great crew and staff with the hustle and bustle of a ship coming to life with many adventures ahead of them. When he finished in his quarters he headed to the Turbolift to carry him to his Bridge. For the first time he felt what he thought was the slowest movement in his life, when in all truth it was just a few seconds. Lou waited for the doors to open and he slowly saw the shine of a new Starship Bridge coming into the view. Knowing that he's been ready for the big chair for a while, he couldn't help but smile when he saw it. He then walked across the Bridge to his Ready Room where he wanted to greet members of senior staff when they came aboard. To wind this down he went to the Replicator to order something he always enjoyed.

Capt Marino: Computer, Earl Grey, hot, with a dash of lemon.

The Captain took the cup and saucer from the Replicator when it appeared and took his seat behind the desk and recorded his first Captain's Log before putting together an invitation to Adm Arayuss and Como Carpathia to give Sutherland a proper send off. He really appreciated the position and the vessel under his command. Now he just wondered what his first mission would be out here in the Gamma Quadrant.

Gangway Entrance - Deck 7  Reply with quote  

The Ensign made it up the Gangway and entered the Sutherland on Deck 7. She went down the corridor and found a Turbolift, before entering she asked the ship's computer where Capt Marino was.

Ens Russ: Computer, where is Captain Marino?

Sutherland-Com: Captain Marino is in the Ready Room on Deck 1.

Andrea entered the Turbolift and took it to the Bridge. As she exited she looked around the deserted Command Center and wondered who would be manning those stations. The Ensign walked over to the Ready Room doors and pressed the chime. She called out to let the Captain know she was there.

Ens Russ: Captain Marino? It's Ensign Andrea Russ, from Admiral Arayuss' office. May I come in?

The Administrative Assistant to the CinC waited patiently to hear from Capt Marino. She was told to give the messages personally by Adm Arayuss and that was exactly what she was planning to do.

Ready Room - Deck 1  Reply with quote  

Lou was just finishing his tea when he heard the door chime and the voice of Ens Russ outside the doors. He stood up from behind his desk and called for her to come in.

Capt Marino: Come in, Ensign!

The Captain waited on the Ensign to enter the Ready Room. He was understandably curious as to why the Admiral's Administrative Assistant was making a "house call" to him aboard the Sutherland.

The Ensign entered Capt Marino's Ready Room and saw that he was standing behind his desk to greet her. She greeted the Captain in return and gave him the message from Adm Arayuss.

Ens Russ: Hello Captain, I've come to tell you that Admiral Arayuss and Commodore Carpathia will be in attendance for the launch of the Sutherland. Also, the Admiral as asked me to invite you to the Ceremony for the Fleet's return and the Memorial service for Captain Adonis, who was killed in action aboard Whitestar in the Battle of Sector Epsilon.

Andrea thought she had told Capt Marino everything, when she remembered the last thing Adm Arayuss told her to tell the Captain.

Ens Russ: Oh yes, one more thing Captain. The Admiral said he expects you to be in your dress whites, Sir.

As the Ensign waited on Capt Marino's response, she looked around his Ready Room. It was devoid of any personal touches, such as decorations, family pictures, maybe even an aquarium. She understood that he must have just come aboard and did not have the opportunity to make the Ready Room his own yet.

Lou was pleased to hear of being invited to the celebration for the Fleet coming home from Sector Epsilon, along with the memorial for Capt Adonis. He only met the Captain a few times and thought of him as a respectable man. It was such a shame that he lost his life in the battle against the Deltaurans.

Capt Marino: Ensign, you can let Admiral Arayuss know that I will be attending and I'll be in my dress whites.

The Captain noticed she was looking around his Ready Room which was notably sparse of decor.

Capt Marino: I'll be decorating my Ready Room with some personal affects as soon as I get unpacked. I'll also be adding an aquarium in the corner with some very colorful fish inside. That should liven my Ready Room up.

Lou escorted Ens Russ out of the Ready Room while he continued...

Capt Marino: I'm going to head to my quarters on Deck 8 and freshen up. Please inform me when the celebration is taking place, so I will not be late. Thank you for delivering the message to me personally, Ensign. I look forward to meeting you again.

The CO walked to the Turbolift and allowed Ens Russ to enter first before entering himself. The lift stopped at Deck 7 to let the Ensign off so she could make her way back to Adm Arayuss, then continued to Deck 8 where Capt Marino made his way to his quarters so he could freshen up and make sure his dress whites fit properly for the celebration and memorial, to be announced.
