Another New Home, and farewell to an officer

Posted on Tue Jul 25, 2017 @ 1:28am by Captain Evelynn Haught

Mission: Delta Quadrant Transition
Location: Observation Lounge Conference Room - Deck 1 on USS Makalu

Evelynn Haught stared out the window of her ready room on the USS Makalu as it slowly approached the Antares III shipyard. Looking at all the different ships in their respected ports of call she sercretly wished to be one of their Captain's.

She knew that herself and her crew were going to be making a journey to the Delta Quadrant and were on their way to the Catapulte but why send the Makalu on a supply run when they could be already on their way.

A few moments later the console on her desk began to beep.

Incoming transmission from Starfleet Command. Antares III Shipyard. Desk of Rear Admiral Juliet Harper.

Evelynn sat down behind her desk and activated the terminal. The Federation symbol vanished to reviel a youthful looking woman who belied her actual age of seventy five.

"Admiral Harper, do what do I owe the pleasure." she said with a smile on her face.

"Captain Haught. Starfleet has authorized a transfer for you and your entire crew. Once the Makalu has docked, you will be sumerrily removed from command and placed in command of the newly assimbled Century Class Starship USS Lantau as her Captain for your mission to the Delta Quadrant." Harper said with a smile on her face.

Evelynn had a slew of emotions flow through her body, from anger of being removed from command of the USS Makalu a starship that one of her long time friends and former Commanding Officers had entrusted her to take over of, to elation of getting the chance to command one of the newset starships that just came off the line.

"Thank you Admiral. I am sure that the transfer will come to quite a surprise to the rest of the crew."

"I'm sure it will. Also Captain I'm informing you that your Executiv Officer Commander Christine Micheals is being transferred to another assignment." said the Admiral.

Evelynn wanted to know why she was transferring her first officer but she knew there were privilieges and knowing what the reasons were wasn't one of them.

"I understand Admiral. When can a suitable replacement be sent to take Commander Micheal's place?" Evelynn asked.

"I am sending you current applications that are looking for a first officer position. Just let command know whom you decide to go with so that the transfer can be Swift." said Admiral Harper.

"Understood." looking at the terminal Evelynn saw that the download was completed. "I will look over the applications and make my decision within the next few hours." after that she ended the communique and stared back out the window for a moment.

[15 minutes later]

"Computer, begin recording." Evelynn said still standing at the window looking out at the shipyard they were appraoaching.

"Dear Commander Micheals,

As you probably aready know, we will be heading into the Delta quadrant without you. You have been my solid rock Christine and not having you at my right hand will never be the same. When I first was chosen to take a command and to begin choosing my first officer you were the one that stood out from all the rest. You had such drive and ambition that radiated from you and reminded me of when I was a young first officer.

I know your past was a hard one but don't dwell on it. Take that slate and wipe it clean and start over. I know that one day you will be back in the center chair and I hope to meet you again out in space when that moment comes.

May all your achievements and goals be fair and true. Remember, Just becuase the road is getting rough ahead doesn't mean you should stop and give up, look for other ways to reach your goals and achievemnts.

I wish you all the best of luck.

Your friend,

Captain Evelynn Haught"

"Computer send to Commander Christine Micheals." Evelynn looked back out the window one last time before turning around and heading for the bridge.
