Posted on Thu Jan 5th, 2017 @ 2:27am by Captain Calvin Rhodes & Lieutenant Commander Solan Jekkar

Mission: 01-A Prologue of Sorts
Location: Ready Room, USS London.
Timeline: MD06, Following the Briefing

Solan had arrived on London and dropped his bag off into his Quarters assignment and then proceeded to take a Turbolift up to the Bridge to meet his new Captain. He had his orders in hand and checked his Uniform.

When the lift stopped, he stepped out and moved to the Ready Room and pressed the chime

With the Briefing complete, Cal stepped out of the Briefing room. Immediately he spotted an imposing Andorian man standing by his Ready Room.

"Can I help you?" He asked, coming up behind the man.

Solan nodded. "Lieutenant Commander Solan Jekkar, reporting." The Andorian said handing him a PADD with his orders on.

Cal took the PADD and pressed the control to open the Ready Room. "After you Commander."

The Andorian nodded. "Thank you Sir."

Captain Rhodes looked over the Andorian's record quickly as he rounded the desk and sat. "Have you been briefed about London's function with Task Force 11?"

"Yes Sir, but please feel free to give me your description." Solan said with a nod towards the Captain.

Calvin gestured for Solan to sit. "To be plain, our job is to provide Diplomatic resources to the Klingon-Gorn conflict." He set the PADD to the side. "As Chief of Security, I expect you'll be very busy with the delegates we have coming aboard."

Solan nodded. "I imagine so, Gorn and Klingons are unpredictable in all manner of things." The Commander nodded. "I hope you have a stomach for insults."

The comment made Calvin think back to the words used about his father and his family back on Earth.He smiled uncomfortably at the Andorian. "We have the Federation's delegation coming on board tomorrow. So we'll need a full sweep on the Ambasador's quarters and their workspace." He gave a serious look. "We have no room for error in any of this."

Solan nodded. "I'll see to it." The Andorian said in response. "I'd also ask that any Security arrangements come through my Office first." The Commander wasn't usually one to make demands but this was different. "Can't have their Escorts walking around the Ship,without consulting em first."

Rhodes raised an eyebrow at the Andorian man. He admired the man's forwardness. "I don't see any issue with that. I'll put you in touch with Ambassador Waldorf's man before her arrival."

Solan nodded. "Thank you Sir." The Andorian stood back at the Desk. "My expertise lies more as an Investigator and Thinker than a blunt force instrument so I hope my skill set is useful to you."

Cal smiled. "Not to worry, I'm sure you'll have plenty of brute force on your team." The Captain stood. "If you'll excuse me, I have a call with Starfleet Operations." He gestured towards the rooms exit. "I'm looking forward to working with you Commander."

The Andorian nodded. "Likewise here Captain." He stood to attention and with a polite nod towards the Captain he departed the Ready Room.
