Marine Detachment Update - Day 1

Posted on Fri Jun 10th, 2016 @ 4:45pm by Sergeant Bella Zaltin


So I have finished up inventorying supplies and making sure that we had our full complement of marines and material onboard the Vindex. So far we are all here minus the Marine CO and XO. I guess that makes me, a lowly Corporal, in charge of 30 marines. Not that I can't do it. I do what has to be done.

One note of curiosity is that the Security/Tactical Department seems to have misplaced 20 phaser rifles. Talk about poor management. I figure it isn't Lt. Tora's fault, they were probably missing before he even came on board, but he had the nerve to show up and question me about it. I about broke his nose when he asked to see my weapons. Why didn't he just come out and say that he didn't trust me.

Still, he showed nerve and stood up for himself when I challenged him and yet, he was all yelling and making a scene. Maybe there is more steel to him than I give him credit, but I don't think he would make a good marine. Big though... I would like to try him out in battle simulations, and I might get my chance.

Tomorrow we are conducting boarding drills in the holodeck with Security. I have set up a few scenarios to run through where it is just the Marines defending, and then just the Yellows defending and then we both defend. I already know how it will turn out, but the Yellows might make a go at it before they crumble like extras on a battle holodrama novel.

Cutting this short, chow time in 10 minutes and then one last workout before lights out.
