It was another day on the starship Thunderchild, Captain Me`lonna Rowris was on the bridge as usual doing her captain duties, and heading to her office before going to the meeting room. As she walked in, she went and grabbed a few PADDs to get ready for the meeting. Me'l was getting ready to leave as she tapped her comm. panel on her desk. “Attention all senior staff meet me in the Observation Lounge we need to talk about the unknown distress call now before certain people leave for the planet.” Me'l announced as she walked out of her office and walked to the meeting room. Me'l then looked at her security officer. “Lt. R'heil you have the conn.” Me'l grinned to her.

Te'shara looked at the Captain. “Yes sir,” Te'shara purred as she sat in the Captain’s chair doing her duty and fixing her tail, so she doesn't sit on it.

Ky'la heard the notification of the meeting and headed straight for it. Walking into the meeting room, she got a raktajino, “Morning captain,” she said, taking her customary seat.

Me'l smiled at her Engineering chief Ky'la. “Good morning Commander how’s Engineering coming along?” she smiled while she was drinking her raktajino, waiting for others.

“Engineering is running smoothly for now, but that could change quickly,” Ky'la said smiling.

After a short ride from sickbay to the bridge, it was only a few minutes before Doctor Aldana and hir service animal Sombra arrived. They entered the conference lounge carrying a notepad and a generic black tea in a resealable beverage container. Without much fuss, the hermaphrodite doctor took the standard CMO spot and slid into the seat.

Meanwhile Sombra slid under the table and took his place at his Alpha’s bare paws.

Major Redd walked in and looked around. “Why the long faces?” he asked, “Sorry I am late Captain. Was busy with the Marine detachment running morning drills and shit. What did I miss?”

Me'L looked at her new CMO, Dr Amiri Aldana, “Welcome to the USS Thunderchild meeting room doc.” Me'l grinned at hir.

Aldana cringed, s/he wasn’t sure how s/he felt about such an informal greeting from a superior.

Then turned to others coming in. Me'l then grinned and nodded to her Marine Commander, “Don’t worry Major your one minute late nothing started.” Me'l said as she directed him to a seat.

Doug had been busy in the hangar bay. He had been inspecting the fighters and so far, had not found any deficiencies. He had just been about to head for the CAG’s office when he suddenly remembered that he was due for a meeting concerning the upcoming away mission. Due for it hell… He thought as he headed for the nearest turbolift, I’m late for it and the captain will probably have my ass in a sling.

In less than five minutes he walked into the meeting and took his seat at the captain’s right. “Sorry I’m late,” he said to the captain. “I was checking the fighters and time got away from me.”

Me'L looked at her XO, “Better late than Never commander.” Me'l said as she shook her head.

“Captain,” said Redd, “I think I have a few points to make here. You want this mission to be handled how? I suggest the first away team to be fleeters. That is a good idea actually. Second team will be my detachment but will be used only if we run into hostiles, am I correct?”

Lee jogs into the meeting room panting. “Sorry I am late sirs hopefully I am not too late.”

“It’s okay Lieutenant Kendrick” Me'l said as she turned to everyone. “Okay I hope we’re all here. Let’s get ready to roll.” she smiled to everyone; then she turned to her Marine CO, “That does sound like a very good plan, but we also have to be careful on what or who is out there to surprise us don’t forget Major Redd.” That goes with everyone here we’re not just gonna beam down to the planet and ‘Boo’ were grabbed, let’s be careful out there.” Any other ideas on this plan or if you all have one?” Me'l explained with a stern look.

Doctor Aldana looked around the table and scrutinized those who’d arrived late to a mission briefing. S/he wondered what sort of ship this could be if so, many were tarty, and their CO were so relaxed about it.

“Captain,” said Redd, “if I may advise; I don’t want to waste too much time. I advise we send a marine recon team down to check out the planet. I am also advising that we somehow get an intelligence liaison here on the ship.” Major Redd was starting to get angry.

Aldana leaned forward. “Wait a minute, I think I missed something. I know I got pulled into the middle of this thing, but aren’t we responding to a planetary distress call? Why are we talking like we’re headed into hostage negotiations or something?”

Me'l sat as she looked at her officers talk and got interested herself. “Gentlemen Please,” Major Redd looked at him first. “It doesn’t sound like a bad idea to send down the marines first.” she said. “Doctor I just like to play it safe; how do we know it’s a distress call for all we know we’d be falling into a trap; OK Doctor.” Me'l said to him agreeing with Major Redd.

“Doctor,” said Redd, “I don't believe we have been formally introduced. I am Major Lucas “Alpha Dawg” Redd. It is nice to meet you. I am the Marine CO also; I am one of the Captain’s top advisers. Now Captain, I can get a recon team together in 35 minutes and be able to deploy at 0900 ZULU, right now, it is 0600 ZULU.”

Me'l looked at Major Redd, “As soon as this meeting is over, we’re all to scatter and get ready.” My XO will be coming down with you all plus your marines and two security with my XO.” Me'l explained to the Major.

“Captain,” said Redd, “the recon team should be ready soon. I suggest you deploy my team first, just to secure the site of the beam down. I might also advise against sending the XO and security till we check the planet first. That is unless, as Marine CO, I can command the security team as well.”

Me'l looked at Redd, “having our XO, Cmdr Roberts, will be fine there will be security around him, besides your military could spread out looking for trouble. Lt. R'heil and Lt. Marek will be with Cmdr. Roberts. Me'l then looked at Lt. Marek. “You understand Lt. Marek?” Then she looked at Cmdr. Roberts. “You okay with that Commander a few security officers at your side at all times while marines do their job?” Me'l asked, looking at both of them. “Does anyone else have anything to add before meeting adjourned?”

“I want all of you ready for anything Captain,” said Redd, “that is a good plan, but if I may say we need the marines down there first, to secure the area.”

Me'l looked at the impatient marine, “Major Redd, if you feel you should then okay, I just don’t want to see any of my crew, even the marines getting in a trap beaming down.” Me'l Explained to Maj. Redd.

Lt. T'Shain had been sitting quietly, in the usual Vulcan style, observing all of the verbal intercourse between the ship’s crew and the Captain. This way she could better understand the subtle interactions that she would soon be facing with her new assignment aboard the USS Thunderchild.

Laying down her PADD, T'Shain stood up and slowly took a deep breath, held it for a moment, then exhaled and looked at the Captain.

Me'l looked at the new Vulcan officer. “Is There something I can do for you Lieutenant?” Me'l gave the Vulcan a stern look. Me'l looked at her number one, “Commander Roberts do you have anything to add besides you being part of the away mission, with a few security officers.” Me'l said to Roberts.

T'Shain raised an eyebrow when the Captain addressed her, then replied, “No, Captain Rowris, I do not have any questions or concerns at the moment.” She paused for precisely two seconds, then continued, “If I may, I would like to review the details of the planet, to determine if there are any recent details that have been discovered since I last reviewed the planet.” The Vulcan stood at attention the whole time the conversation was taking place.

Me'l looked at the others “if no one has any questions then this meeting is over.” Me'l grinned.

“We are all good Cap,” said Redd.
