U.S.S. Lantau

Personal Log: Arrival

Posted on Sat Jun 10, 2017 @ 4:14pm by Lieutenant Paul Sharpe

After the Makalu had docked with the Starbase at Antares III Sharpe had made arrangements to has his stuff transferred over to the new ship the USS Lantau, his items already having left the Makalu, he walked across the gangway and looked out of the windows and saw the Antares 3 shipyards and the new ship her was going to be serving on, as it ventured into the Delta Quadrant it was bigger than he had ever served on before, he paused in a quiet area to do a personal log.

"Sharpe's personal log 10th June I find myself a wee bit apprehensive at moving to a new ship, after all, it will be my first time in the Delta Quadrant, but like the rest of the crew, I will not be alone in this thinking. I wonder which race we will meet first! But the most frightening thing is that we will be going into the Borg Collectives playground, not to mention Species 8472, I wonder if we will encounter the Krenim or perhaps the Talaxian's *sigh* time will tell I suppose, but there will be races that we have yet to meet and most likely they will be species that the Voyager never met."

He paused as he gathered his thoughts.

"Unlike the Voyager crew who ended up in the Delta Quadrant by accident, we will be going there with the express mission of Exploration, there is also the added issue of the Benthan's, last time they tolerated the Voyager passing through their patrolled space as they understood the ship was trying to get home, this time Starfleet is making a concerted exploration effort, it would be logical to make an alliance with them, if only for support when needed but that will be up to the Captain."

He paused again as his Padd said that his stuff had arrived on the Lantau.

"Still I have said by farewells to my Aunt and Uncle and left a message with Alex, I hope she will understand as we will be away from each other for a very long time. But last I heard she was almost at Starbase 332, I bet she is glad to be going back to the front lines. Well time to get me aboard the Lantau and get my department set up and security clearance's sorted, then sort out my quarters, end of personal log"

He saved his log and pulled up another screen on his Padd, it showed him the extra bottles of grogg that had arrived in his quarters and that his Office desks bottom cupboard had been modified as a small cooler. Now he made a mental note to get one put in his quarters as he could not keep all his grogg at the office, maybe two bottles, but the rest would have to remain part of his private stash. Then he thought no, a new ship so new habits, the only thing he would keep in that cooler in his office desk was water and soda pop, after all, it would not do to have real alcohol in one's workplace out in the wilds of spacel.

With this settled he made his way to the Lantau's docking bay, as the shuttle took him from the Starbase to the shipyard where the ship was moored he was deep in thought and was startled out of it as word came back that they had landed on the Lantau. Picking up his bags he exited the shuttle and made a beeline for his quarters to dump his stuff.
