Mission: S1E1 - Booby Trap
Location: Personal quarters, Ensign Bogolyubov
Timeline: Mission Day 6

Anastasia had made a decision.

She was going to request permission to get a cat for her quarters. Preferably a Maine Coon cat. She felt their disposition would be preferable in her quarters And it would be the touch of home that she missed.

She was also going to look at getting more involved in ship activities. Anastasia knew that there were a number of recreational organizations on a ship. Anastasia had suspected that these activities would be halted once the wormhole had been effectively sealed against Starfleet, with Federation forces in an undeclared war against the Consortium. Recreational activities had been curtailed in light of the new reality, but they were nonetheless still proceeding nonetheless.

Her Marine brothers had told her about front line competitions, such as cooking competitions with portable meal components. Apparently such things were seen as beneficial in all conditions, she surmised.

Right now, though, Anastasia was focused on a new problem. She was to meet with the Chief Flight Control Officer, along with officers from other departments, to discuss methods in which the Vindex's sensors could be enhanced while the ship was operating in the nebula. The Hegelian approach of trying to reach a synthesis with the input of officers of differing backgrounds was something that Anastasia was looking forward to. In her academic career, the only time she was called upon to engage in cooperative measures was with theoretical physicists who needed help in creating mathematical models to describe their newest theories. For the most part, Anastasia had always worked alone, usually only interacting with others in answering questions about her work.

Maybe she could come up with an algorithm to predict sensory diffraction, she mused, which would allow the computer to develop a "picture" with incomplete data. It would have to be something specific to the general area, she decided, incorporating average particle density and coupling that with a true random number generator.

She also remembered something from the USS Voyager's interaction with a region of chaotic space. Not that anything so extreme would be experienced by the Vindex in the area they were traversing, Anastasia herself was only peripherally aware of the event because of the advancements in multi-dimensional geometry. She suspected that there would be few, if any, applications to the practical lessons learned in that incident that could be applied in the Vindex's present situation. Still, that was only her perception of things. There would others to run that by as well.

With a hint of smile on her face, Anastasia made minute adjustments to her appearance before heading to her meeting with the Vindex's Chief Flight Officer.
