{{Time Index - Day 26 of shore leave}}


The call for the Senior Officer meeting had reached him quite ironically as Kurt had started to nap.

Logan oO So much for that then ..... Oo

Standing from his chair he Instead finished organising and preparing a small hypo which along with a Tricorder he added to the belt that held his sidearm. With a little time to spare after securing his personal cage in the Armoury he headed for the Gym to get the blood flowing and ease the small headache that sat just above his right eye.

The Onservation hall had two chairs empty when he stepping through the doors, the last one taken just as he sat down by the Ferengi Engineer who seemed to like him just as much as most Doctors did.

With everyone present and nods of greeting exchanged their Captain begun.

Thoran: Before we begin, please help yourself to the refreshments. ::He waited a moment before continuing. Thalas took the opportunity to grab a slice of Coffee and Walnut cake.:: I know you are all in the process of enjoying shoreleave so I won’t take up too much of your time.

Smiles and nods were exchanged, down time was precious especially given the nature of the time between.

Logan oO Especially this last time when we nearly lost the Captain himself Oo

Thoran: I am sure you are all wondering why the Atlantis had been recalled to Earth and sadly it was not for us to enjoy the sights. ::his eyes fell to the table:: The Atlantis is to remain here for the time being for a resupply and minor refit.

Logan oO Ok so that's a long shore leave or are we being all transfered away ?. No if that was the case we'd have had separate meetings to discuss that. Oo

Serala: Okay, a refit. That’s fine. Bit of stand-down time for most while the Engineers get to have a bunch of fun. How long are we planning to be here?


Lephi: I didn't sign up for Starfleet to sit in dry dock for ages. Is there anything we can do to speed up our return?

He was about to say something but given how they parted or more exactly how she pushed him out of her quaters he decided that now was probably not the best to say anything.

Any: Response

Thoran: A skeleton crew will remain with the ship whilst the majority of us return to the Par’tha Expanse.

McKnight: I don't understand, sir. Return in what? The Atlantis is our ship? Are we all being reassigned?

Snow: Are we being loaned a ship while the Atlantis undergoes the refit? 

Logan: To DS26 ?. I do hope theres transport It's a very long way to walk

Any: Response

The Captain walked round the table and keyed the wall display it responded by displaying an Akira-class starship’s MSD.

Thoran: May I present the USS Chin’toka, an updated Akira class, first of its kind. And our new home.

Logan oO What in the Ostrich. New home ?? Oo

The Akira class was a proven frame they had all served well in the Dominion war and the following years. But it was an older ship which would explain the updated bit of the Captain sentence.

Thoran: Starfleet Cpommand has been following the evolving situation in the Expanse and is assigning the Chin’toka as the Federation’s flagship for the region. It is hoped that such a move will cement the Federation’s place in the region and reassure it’s allies of the commitment. Questions?

th’Koro: After the Atlantis’ refit, will it join us again in the Expanse?

Serala: I have a ton of questions, but for now I will just settle with, what is the time table here?

Raga: The entire crew is being reassigned? That explains the mystery. I..::He looked to Serala, then to the Captain.::

Lephi: When can we expect the manifest for the skeleton crew to be posted, to know where we're going?

Logan: I hope she does follow us back the Atlantis has been there pretty much since the beginning.

Any: Response

Thoran: Response

Levinson: How long do we have for packing?

Any: Response

Thoran: The engineers would like to begin work on the Atlantis as soon as possible. As such we will be moving to the Chin’toka within the week, so start packing. To celebrate the commissioning of the Chin’toka, a party is being held tomorrow evening on board the Chin’toka. A number of senior officers are expected to be in attendance so attire will be dress whites.

Serala: By your command, rekkhai.

Logan oO That was a very formal answer Oo

Kurt had heard the Commander slip into Romulan when excitement, nerves or stress shortened her reaction time.

Raga: Yes, sir. I imagine a lot of the crew, myself included, are going to have a difficult time leaving the ship. This...is our home. Winds know, she’s seen us through a lot, and a lot of good Atlanteans memories will always be a part of her. Those…::He took on a somber tone:: who never left and can never leave her.

Any: Response

Many had come and gone since he had first stepped foot onboard, technically he was the longest serving senior Officer onboard, on the account of being onboard briefly before. Then came the transfer when Raga, Kiax, Serala and McKnight came aboard. As with any and all of the Veterans on this ship and on many other ships in every corner of the Universe who had lived though the toughest of times the names of those that had fallen were held  lose, maybe in some cases to close but held they were.

Raga: ::smiles softly:: Once and Atlantean…::He stated stoically::

McKnight: Always, my friend. ::He pats Raga on the back.::

Logan:  Always

He was usually known for his 'What is Logan talking about now ? ' Demeanor' but for once his own sombre but backed with steel mood was heard.

Any: Response

Rosek: ::clears her throat softly:: Will there be a christening ceremony, sir, or has that already been taken care of?

Thoran: Response

Rosek: ::pauses:: There’s somewhat of a tradition from what I’ve read where on some new ships her Chief Engineer christens the engine room prior to the maiden voyage. With your permission, sir, I’d like to do something similar for my team. It might boost morale and make the transition a little bit easier. Keep the focus on the positive things.

Lephi: I'm more than happy to help out in any way needed, sir.

Thoran: Response

Any: Response

Rosek: ::nods:: I agree. ::glances at the others:: I know some of you have been with the Atlantis for a long time. I’ve been through enough reassignments to have an idea of what you’re feeling. I believe the more we do to build this into a celebration, the less focus there will be on leaving the Atlantis behind.

Thoran: Response

Levinson: Would the celebration be open for the new arrivals as well?

Lephi: A celebration sounds good to me.

Snow: Me too.

Any: Response

Rosek: Response

Logan: Well if it's a party you want then I'm sure the Marines can be trusted to lead the way.

As he finished his C.O. gave him a look which was difficult to place, the closest he could make fit was the old standby of 'Speak to me later'.

Any: Response
