CHAPTER 01: The Intelligence Officer [1000 hrs.] May 15, 2014, 12:23:38 PM CHAPTER 01: "The Intelligence Officer"[ USS Theurgy | Captain's Ready Room | Deck 01 | 1000 hrs. ] Attn: CanadianVetHaving visited Sickbay and learned about the Asurian, Jien had also been given the treatment plan for Sarresh Morali. Reading it, it was hard to not let one's thought go to who these hidden people were, and wonder if they would ever become a part of the Federation once the enemy had been overthrown. The door chimed."Enter," said the female form of Captain Jien Ives where she sat behind her desk, her dark hair tied behind her head and large brown eyes reading the PADD in her hand. Then again, it would be erroneous to say that her hair was actually "tied" thus, since it was merely a choice as to how she had manipulated her appearance in order to keep her hair out of her eyes. Lifting her gaze to the arrived Lieutenant Commander, who was a rather rare addition to the crew, Jien smiled very faintly to him and lowered her tablet. Yeoman Henshaw had scheduled the appointment earlier, and judging from the silence from her Ready Room area towards the aft, she was not present - her new duties having taken her elsewhere. "Welcome to the USS Theurgy," she said with her much-faded Japanese accent. She rose from her chair and put the PADD away - eyes taking in the state and appearance of the human with bionic limbs."As you already know, my name is Jien Ives, and since Security has cleared you, I am now your Commanding Officer. Pleasure to meet you, Lieutenant Commander Carrigan Trent." Another faint smile touching the - by human standards - middle-aged Chameloid, Jien put her hands on her hips. "Before we attend the matter of your commission here aboard the Theurgy, I want to reassure you that your efforts to bring us valuable information has not been in vain. All affected departments are processing the data in the cubes as we speak, and when we rendezvous with the Harbinger, Captain Vasser and I will be weighing in your intel into the tactical decisions we will be making for the voyage to come. Well done, and if we'd not had the phasing cloak we are currently using, we would likely all have been dead if it weren't for the computer virus you created. Had we known what you were up to, we may not have had to break the Treaty of Algeron. Wishful thinking aside, I can only apologise for having to keep you in a holding cell overnight." She paused there, a frown creasing the area between her eyebrows. "I hope Deputy zh'Wann did not treat you too poorly. I heard from my Yeoman she... stunned you and Commander Wenn in order to determine that you were not like Ensign Acreth. Care to expand upon that? I have not had the time to follow up on the report besides meeting with you."
