Prepping the Victory
When the Sinful strike back
Location: Bridge, USS Victory
The doors to the Bridge of the Victory opened up and the Bridge was a hub of activity. With a massive fleet of Ships at Epsioln Sigma preparing to liberate a Colony and halt the Jennarri it was all hands on deck.
"Captain on the Bridge." Ensign Baxter called as she turned to the door. Everyone on the Bridge stopped what they were doing and came to attention.
"As you were." Elijah said as he strolled down to his Chair and examined the faces of the Bridge Crew. It felt strange not seeing all of them together but he knew they had their own duties to do. "Ensign what is the Status of the Fleet?"
"All Ships accounted for Sir, readiness is at 97% just letting the last few ships receive their Crew." Baxter called from the Ops console.
Elijah nodded. "Alec what's the status of the Ships Security and Tactical Personnel?"
"Fully ready sir, I have Security Teams standing by at key areas, and Tactical is fully functional, weapons at 100% readiness.
"Lin i trust you've downloaded all the information on where we are going and what little I formation the Fleet has gathered?" The Captain asked the Science Officer.
"Aye sir." Lin replied. "I've sent information to the helm and uploaded the Intel to our systems."
Elijah nodded. "Excellent." He then turned his attention to the relief officers and crew who had essentially flooded the bridge to man all Secondary and Auxiliary Consoles. "Patch me through to a Fleetwide Channel."
"Channel open Sir." Courtney said with a nod.
"All Ships this is the Captain. We are about to embark upon a mission that has not been seen since the very end of the Dominion War. We are going into battle against an Enemy like no other. They are not motivated by currency or a quest for glory or honour, they seek to oppress the very beliefs and freedoms that we hold dear. The Jennarri Inquisition want to rid the Galaxy of the corruption and sin that has plagued countless powers for centuries. They see us as needing salvation not from the unknown dangers but from ourselves. I say that our flaws and imperfections are what make us unique and diverse, they see us as sinful. Well I say that it is time that the sinful strike back."
When the Channel closed Elijah sat back in his seat. "All Departments I want full readiness reports within the hour."
The Captain looked at Baxter. "Ensign please make a note in the Ships log that Commander Evans is unwell and has been relieved of duty, Lieutenant Wescott you are now the acting First Officer,"
“Aye sir!” Alec said letting an Ensign take over tactical, before moving and taking his seat next to the Captain.
"Odelle you're taking his place as Second Officer." Elijah said with a nod.
Lin was almost rather shocked by this. But confident she could handle it. "Aye, sir." she responded. "Let's teach them a thing or two."
"Number One please get us underway?" Elijah asked as he glanced towards Alec.
Alec nodded. "Helm, new course heading zero three zero mark two one." Alec said to the helm officer.\
"Acknowledged, zero three zero mark two one." Replied Kayne "Ready on your command"
Elijah sat back in his seat and with a final glance at the Bridge. "Engage."
