CSec_Lt_Draven> your crew is at attention
Thank you, Lieutenant. As you can see we're missing a
few people. So it was
voted that we'd go ahead and do a CD sim. Any
what is a cd sim?
CEO-Cmdr_Moore> Character Development.
CEO-Cmdr_Moore> It takes place outside of the main plot, stuff for
CEO-Cmdr_Moore> Anyone else?
Considering the nature of where we left off
in the plot it will be before
any of that happened. So everyone is
alive and well. The ship is also running
at peak effeciency. You may
start off on duty or off. rawr when done.

calculations not noticing those who pass,

startled:: Commander! ::Stands to a
snappy attention, not seeing the hand
in her haste::
CEO-Cmdr_Moore> TF> ::he chuckled a bit:: At ease, Ensign.
TF> Hai, Sir. ::Acceeds to his wishes, taking a formal
'at ease' stance'.::
TF> ::giving a shake to his head:: I mean, completely.
We're just in ten-forward.

Sorry, Sir. ::shakes the extended hand and releases

bar and orders a cup of raktajino :::
CEO-Cmdr_Moore> TF> Do you mind
if I join you? Ensign....::looking for
a name. Perking an ear hearing a familiar
AMO-Ens_Kosuke> TF> Ahhh, ::gestures to the chair, stammers::
course, Sir. Kosuke, Sir.
CEO-Cmdr_Moore> TF> Thank you. ::turning
to look over his shoulder he
smiled:: Stormy! ::motioning his head for her.
Then taking the
offered seat:: Medical or..Science?
TF>:: thanks the bar tender and continues on with a
steaming cup of klingon
coffee in hand. Spy's Moore and the good
doctor and makes her way over to

her in an effort to give him more space. Looks at him like a deer

slow easy grin to both of them:: this
How are you liking that so far? ::giving her a
smile. Even if the stammering
was simply nerves it was cute::
AMO-Ens_Kosuke> TF> Ahhh, it...it...it
is all right, Sir., slowly she
was starting to get a grip, then the Lt arrived::
::Gestures to the other chair::

evening, Dr. Kosuke.

well, Sir. I have
not yet been aboard long.
CEO-Cmdr_Moore> Oh. Well
now you have formally. Dr. Kosuke, Stormy
Just Stormy, we're off duty. And its a pleasure to see
you again, Dr.
Hai, Ma'am. I am also pleased. ::dips head slightly in
deference, even though
they're off duty::
CEO-Cmdr_Moore> And, Nicholas. ::nodding and lifting
Could I get either of you ladies a drink?
::taps the cup:: I'm good. Thanks.
CEO-Cmdr_Moore> Oh..::he chuckled::
Right. Kosuke? A refill for you?

knowing if she could call him by
his first name. ::lifts the tea cup:: I am

excuse me a moment. ::turning
to head over and get a glass of
CSci-Lt_OBrien> How are
you settling in, Kosuke?
AMO-Ens_Kosuke> I am still...becoming acclimated.
The sickbay is top
notch. I am sure we will be prepared for just about anything.
CEO-Cmdr_Moore> ::turning with the glass in hand he sat back
taking a sip::
CSci-Lt_OBrien> Takes a little getting used to.
:: taking a sip of
coffee:: Not unlike moving to a new city.
You said..Hai earlier, meaning yes. You're background
is..Japanese, or a different
one, you just know Japanese?
AMO-Ens_Kosuke> ::Returns to the soup, and
slowly spoons down the last
bite, looking to the CSci, wondering if she should
ask, then answers
the question asked of her:: I am of Japan, Kagoshima, specifically.
Ma'am...I have noticed your science labs are rather large. Is this
a science vessel?
CSci-Lt_OBrien> Hmm. i would not say primarily science.
CSci-Lt_OBrien> We are both scientific and cultural... which requires
large labs for xeno science.
CEO-Cmdr_Moore> ::Nicholas took another drink
and glanced between the
two, quiet for a reason::
I see, prepared for exploration, then? I have
an interest in xenobiology,
my background is primarily in genetics.
CEO-Cmdr_Moore> I disect systems
and engines and machinery if that
counts. ::a light teasing look on his lips::
Yes. We're part of the Exploration Fleet. ::rests her
chin on her palm:: Xeno
biology and genectics... I can see why you
were chosen to join the Cortana.
::Smiles, blushes:: Thank you, Ma'am, but my
background primarily comes from
CSci-Lt_OBrien> anyone who can make sense of the DNA map,
respect... it's fascinating.
CEO-Cmdr_Moore> Breeding fish? How
did you start that way? ::raising
an eyebrow slightly::
::Sips tea, smiles, lowers her eyes:: Thank you, Ma'am.
::looks to the commander:: My father, he breeds Koi. I
gained practical experience
assisting him in the hatcheries.
CEO-Cmdr_Moore> Aren't those the..um..very
decrative and colorful breed
CSci-Lt_OBrien> ::leans forward
a bit, listening with interest::
AMO-Ens_Kosuke> Hai, Sir. My father was
breeding specifically to get a
particular color pattern. My interest in genetics
comes from him,
AMO-Ens_Kosuke> I...did not entirely
agree with the hatchery ethics,
CEO-Cmdr_Moore> That's fasinating.
Did he eventually accomplish that
task? ::his head canted slightly to the
side in curiosity:: You don't?
AMO-Ens_Kosuke> ::Shakes her head:: No, sir.
Fish that did
not...display the correct markings were....fed to other fish,
disagreed that fish should be culled based on their looks, Commander.
I have brought two small koi with me; they were to have become chum.
We toss carp back into the pond at home... but we don't
kill them. ::leaning
back in the chair now::
CEO-Cmdr_Moore> I'm sorry that he did it that way.
::nods:: It is common practice. The koi I have
displayed only a slight discrepancy
from perfection. Two extra black
scales interrupting a stripe of gold. I could

kill critters that do not meet the criteria of the particular
I'd like to see your koi sometime.
I would be proud to show you, sometime,
Ma'am. ::returns to Moore, nods also::
CEO-Cmdr_Moore> I'd love to see them.
Sim End -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
Thank you for coming and participating. Hopefully next
week RL willing we'll
be back to working on the plot. Either of you
ladies have any questions?
AMO-Ens_Kosuke> No, Sir.
CEO-Cmdr_Moore> Alright then. Everyone
have a good week, and don't
hesitate to log backlogs for something to do.
