(( Multi-Use Office, Deck 1, Doyle-A ))
:: Despite the strange start, David paid close attention as Sabrina responded, making notes in his slimpadd. ::
Holly: I stepped down as Executive Officer was assigned to HCO, was almost immediately transferred to the USS Venus and when I returned you were Executive Officer then for whatever reason you weren’t any more. That’s pretty much all I know, Sir. ::
:: David smiled, catching the tone, and shook his head. ::
Cody: That simplifies things, then.
Holly: Is there something specific you thought or hoped I would know?
:: David stole the moment to sip more at his coffee as he formulated his thoughts, taking her in. ::
Cody: Every officer I’ve met works a little differently. It helps me to learn a little bit about who you are, and how you work.
Holly: I mean no disrespect Sir, but… I am a little curious as to how my knowledge of you or rather lack thereof is relevant to the circumstances of this meeting?
:: David did laugh then. His humorous gaze narrowed. He understood Selene's notes. ::
Cody: This meeting, which I agreed to undertake for Captain Faranfey, is an assessment of your current command ability as you’re one of two candidates being considered for Executive Officer.
Cody: The relevance is whether you walked into this meeting armed with every bit of information you could get your hands on, or simply assumed. ::a sad smile:: I don’t particularly like doing evaluations, but in counter to a possible question that might come up, you’ll find I’m well qualified, as I’ve not just been an Executive Officer, but a Commanding Officer as well… along with other various and assorted hats I’ve worn over the years. Which is in my personnel file... I was given a note you're prone to act rashly at times.
Cody: ::chuckling:: I prefer to focus in the present here and now. So... how do you feel you’ve changed since the last time you worked in the capacity as an Executive Officer?
