Laying down the law

Mission: 01-A Prologue of Sorts
Location: Security Offices, USS London

The Security Department of the USS London was all assembled per the request of their new Department Head. The ensemble of Ensigns, Lieutenants and Enslisted Crew all stood around chatting amongst themselves as they waited for the Commander.

A whoosh of the doors opening forced the collection of Officers and Crew to snap to attention. Three Officers walked into the Office, two Humans and an Andorian. The tall blue skinned Alien didn't say a word as he approached the group. A Lieutenant on either side of him.

"My name is Lieutenant Commander Solan Jekkar, I am the new Chief Security and Tactical Officer for the USS London." The Andorian held up a PADD. "Over the next few days I will be going over all the names on this PADD to,determine what kind of Department I have at my disposal."

The Officers still remained at attention as they were not ordered to remain as they were. A few of them seemed visibly nervous of their new superior. Others were taken by surprise that he focused so much on protocol and regulation.

"For those of you who new to my Command style, you'll learn that I am firm but fair and that I wouldn't ask you to do anything I wouldn't do myself." The Andorian said as his eyes looked around the Officers. "This Department will be the best on this Ship and I expect only the very best."

He looked at the two Lieutenants either side of him. "It's been decided that for better diversity and a smoother chain of command, Tactical Officers will report to Lieutenant Dawson and Security Officers will report to Lieutanent Nagata who will then report to me." Solan nodded at the idea. "If you feel that there are issues the Lieutenants cannot resolve then please by all means come to me."

There were a few looks of surprise from the assembled Crew, but for the most part it seemed fairly straightforward.

"Duty Rosters have been assigned so please take a look at those and also when I'll be conducting training and readiness drills." With a smile that seemed genuine, Solan nodded. "I look forward to working with you all, you're all dismissed."
