Mission: S1E1 - Booby Trap
Location: USS Vindex > Deck 13 > Operations Center
Timeline: Current

The doors to the lift slide open after the soft tone of a notification to alert it’s riders they are at their destination. Kevin turned sideways passing a pair of officers as he made his exit to the high traffic area of the operations department offices. With his personal PADD in hand, Pittman moved towards the office of the Chief Operations Officer, Seeing that he was in, Kevin opted to take a quick look at the department he was set to start working in.

Unlike the massive operations center of a stardock, the set-up onboard a sovereign-class starship was slightly smaller, but not by much. The sheer amount of processing the data terminals conduct was mindblowing. Entering, his access credentials had already been approved when he came onboard the ship.

Taking notice of his presence was a another Ensign working the operations duty station. Approaching Kevin, the young women inquired.

“Can I help you?”

Looking towards her, Kevin smiled as he responded. “Hi, Ensign Pittman.” Smirking at him she responded. “Ensign Hall, are you...lost?” Pittman looked around before responding.

“No, I’m actually set to start here soon, I’m one of the new operations officers.”

Nodding at his new found work location, she spoke.

“Well, Ensign...Pittman...this area is restricted for working duty shifts only, So unless you’re here to work, I think you should...”

“I’m actually on my way to report in to the COO, just figured I’d stop by, see the sights.” Looking around once more, he continued. “I’ve never been inside the operations center of a sovereign-class starship before.”

Staring at him for a moment, she responded. “Well, I wouldn’t worry about that, you’ll get to see the inside of this ops center soon enough.”

Nodding, Kevin looked at her and responded. “Nice meeting you Ensign Hall.”

“You as well Ensign Pittman.”

Turning to exit, Kevin walked out of the secured location and moved towards the Lieutenant’s office. Thinking about him for a brief moment, Ensign Hall moved back towards her station and made a note of Pittman’s visit in the duty log.
