Mission: S1E2 - Unity
Location: Intel Office
Timeline: MD 8 || 0900 Hours

Once her transfer from the Renown was authorized, Catalina wasted no time packing a small bag which consisted of five PADDs, a tricorder, a crystal necklace, a few sets of civilian clothes and a spare uniform, she headed to the transporter room and beamed over to the Vindex.

Asking and receiving permission to come aboard, she accessed the deck listing for the Intelligence on deck three without bothering to check for her quarter assignment or to Medical for a physical. She checked her uniform to make sure it was spotless, then pressed the chime and waited to be admitted.

"Enter," came a rather annoyed voice from within.

It didn't take enhanced hearing to detect the annoyed tone of voice coming from the other side of the door and Catalina put on her game face and entered the office. "Lieutenant JG Ghatto reporting as your new Assistant Chief, Lieutenant," she said.

Kaz didn't look up from the PADD he had in his hand, his other hand gliding over the interface. "Have a seat, Lieutenant," he said.

"Yes, Sir," she said as she went to take a seat and waited for the Chief to get done with what he was doing. She took a moment to glance around the office to see if the unusual hybrid officer had added any personal touches to it while she waited for him to respond.

"What can I do for you?" Kaz asked, still gliding his fingers over the PADD.

"That depends on what you have for me, Lieutenant," Catalina responded. "As your new Assistant Chief, I would figure that it would have something to do with Intelligence." She regretted the words the second they left her mouth before she ran them through her personal filter, but she admitted that had been broken for some time.

With those words, Kaz stopped and set the PADD down. "I wasn't informed that we were expanding the Intelligence department," he said, folding his hands.

"Surprise!" she said and decided that the personal filter would require a complete reinstall if she were ever going to be able to censor her words again.

Kaz did not look amused. "How high is your security clearance?" he asked, his hands returning to the PADD he was holding.

"Level four," Catalina told him.

"Not very useful, then, are you?"

"Starfleet thinks I am," she retorted. "Maybe they sent me to help with your stellar personality."

"Maybe you should remember that I'm your superior," Kaz stated in reply. "What information do you have on the Consortium?"

"Only what everyone else knows, Lieutenant," Catalina said. "Of course, with all the recent events, it's not like I've been given a lot of time or information to do much in the way of assisting. I was an encryption specialist before my assignment here and that only involved stuff that was low level clearance."

"Encryption?" Kaz hummed for a moment. "I may have something for you, actually." He tapped a button and the computer in his desk came to life. "We have intercepted a communication that can't be decrypted. Encryption is definitely not my specialty. Perhaps you'll have a better time with it."

"I'll do my best at it, Sir," she responded. "When I was at the Academy, there wasn't an encryption cypher that I couldn't crack with enough time and the right tools."

"Unfortunately, time is the one thing we do not have in excess," Kaz replied, handing the woman a PADD. "Here is the information."

Cat took the PADD and nodded. "When do you need it by?" she asked him as she looked at what it contained.

"You have three days," Kaz stated.

"I'm on it, Chief," she said. "Is there anything else?"

Kaz shook his head, "Not that I can think of. Keep me informed on your progress, please."

"Will do," Cat said and with that, she headed out.
