(( Recreation Deck, somewhere on Star Station Esperance ))

:: The size of the Esperance station was truly stunning.  With a population of over eighteen million, it was comperable in size to some of the largest cities on Federation member worlds.  The massive recreation deck that he’d reserved for the Veritas’ crew as the Veritas herself was resupplied and repaired by Federation annex personnel was equipped with arboretums, spas, restaurants, lounges, holodecks.  The works, basically. ::

:: He’d assembled the senior staff in one of those lounges, three days before his wedding.  He was starting to get a little nervous.  His parents were due to arrive tomorrow, and Evan’s, the day after that.  He could only hope that it’d be a good time for everyone invited - most of the same people standing in front of him now. ::

:: Dressed just in his standard uniform, the Caitian settled his hands on the podium in front of him, and glanced aside toward Captain Rahman.  She might’ve been in charge of the ship again, but she’d offered him the chance to present the awards himself.  It was something he hadn’t been able to turn down.  The feline man smiled back at the faces in front of him. ::

Mei’konda: Thaank you all for joiniing me toniight, everyone.  It’s been a diifiicult few months, and I would like to thaank Captain Rahman for allowing me to present these recogniitions to you all.

Anyone: Response

Mei’konda: I know for a faact that we wouldn’t haave made it back if we didn’t have one of the best crews on one of the best starshiips in the fleet.  So thank you all for your very haard work. 

Anyone: Response

:: Plucking up the first two of the small replicated-wood boxes, the Caitian stepped forward. ::

Mei’konda: Lieutenant Commander Rosek, would you join Commander Kelrod here?

Rosek: Response
