Mission: All In A Day's Work
Location: Providence Fleet Yards, Deck 5, Staff Offices
Timeline: Mission Day 1 at 1530

Nate took the short walk from the turbolift to the short-term offices that were on the base. It wasn’t the biggest base, but it did the job that was needed for Providence and for Task Force 93. He knew most of the decks were filled with random things, a lot of it wasn’t his focus. He knew what he needed and where it was, and to get out of the operational centre every once in a while, it was a refreshing feeling for Nate.

He was still worried about the movement, he was worried about his family. They had his wife. They had his daughter. He was following their requests, their demands. They didn’t plan this, they had hoped it would be the end of the Excalibur’s actions in the corridor. They had not planned on the orders coming through that the Excalibur would be back in the corridor. What would happen to his family when they found this development happening right in front of them. Nate needed a way out, he needed to figure out a way to get one of these ships to go searching. Maybe his family was in one of the four systems being searched.

He arrived at the temporary office for Captain Richardson, tapping the control panel he waited. It was strange for a Commodore to have to wait, but Nate was willing to wait.

“Come on in,” said the voice.

The door opened, and Nate stepped inside; “Ant, got your new orders, change of command all good to go, say one hour. Docking Port 9?”

“I just got back from having a look at the ship, the refit seems to be going well. Happy to take command whenever you said it was ready to go” smiled Anthony, it was happening now. He was pleased.

“Yeah, we are all good. I’m sure you won’t be ready to push out, so getting your crew onto the ship and settled is something of importance to me right now. This virus on your old ship rattled us, it’s going to be a long investigation, but they will get to the bottom of it, your ship went through a full diagnostic when we pulled it out of the retrofit and it cleared the tests. You won’t need to do anything, we will handle it from Providence” Nate was trying to cover his own backside.

“Sounds good, I guess the mission orders still stand?” asked Anthony

“Of course, patrol the northern section of the corridor between Romulan space and our territory, assist the Cavalry in the mine placement if they require it and while you can, investigate those three systems inside Romulan space. We are in the process of getting final approval from the Romulan Senate, so for the meantime, you will have to sit at the neutral zone and wait. Don’t enter without approval, if you are attacked, retreat to Deep Space 6 at once” remarked Nate.

“Understood, Sir. Anything else?” asked Anthony

“Don’t think so, however, I find out you enter Romulan space without the approvals, I’ll bust you down to Crewman so quickly, this will seem like a dream. You got it?” he asked, it was strange for Nate to say something like that, but he meant business. He had seen the final inquiry report into the Kumari incident and he didn’t want something like that on his record.

“Yes, Sir” was all Anthony said, he found it strange the way Nate spoke but took no real notice of it.

“I’ll see you in an hour, dress uniform please” Nate finished with as he headed back out of the office.
