Handing over the Reins

Posted on 20 Feb 2018 @ 2:16pm by Lieutenant Susan Atkins FTA & Lieutenant Commander Yvette Beauvoir

Mission: Crisis on the Frontier 4X01
Location: USS Endeavour - Deck 11 - Security Office
Timeline: MD 04 - 10.00 hours


Yvette made her way to the Security, she was on her way to hand over the reins of Security to one Lieutenant Susan Atkins.

From what she was able to glean from Atkins' personnel file was that she was an investigative officer for the Frontier and Trade Authority and was untested within Starfleet or in combat. Time would tell if she was right for the position, but Yvette was going to offer any assistance she could provide.

Susan was waiting at the door of the security center. She had been inside earlier and made herself familiar with the surroundings, but that hadn't taken away her nerves. Was she crazy for taking on this job.

As she saw the Intel Chief approach she pushed herself of the wall opposite of the door and greeted her predecessor with a smile.

"Good day, Lieutenant." Yvette said without returning the smile. Looking the other woman over, asked. "Are you ready to take on your new duties?"

"As ready as I'll ever be?" Susan said.

That reply didn't exactly fill Yvette with confidence. "Are you aware of what these duties will be?" She asked leading the other woman into the office.

"I did some catching up and did some LCARS queries. I'll probably do things a bit differently then people are used to, but I can manage." Susan said as they stepped in her new office.

"Very well, let us do this." Yvette said. "Computer turn over to Security to Lieutenant Susan Atkins. Authorization Beauvoir-Three-Seven-Nine-Eta."

'Authorization confirmed. Lieutenant Susan Atkins do you accept this new position?" The computer voice said.

"Affirmative, authorization Atkins-Delta-Zeta-Four." Susan said in response.

'Authorization confirmed. Power has been transferred to Lieutenant Susan Atkins.' the computer spoke.

Susan grinned slightly as she now officially was the Chief of the Security department and everything that entailed. "Any tips on things that I need to look into right away?" She asked her colleague.

"Just trust your team, some of them have a lot of experience." Yvette said. "Also, if you require any help, just ask."

"Thank you, and I will." Susan said as she glanced around. The office might not be such a big difference from her last one. But this posting certainly was.

"Any further questions, Lieutenant?" Yvette asked.

"For now I'm good, but if something comes up I'll know where to find you." Susan said.

"Okay, I will leave it to you then. Good day, Lieutenant."
