Mission: First Dawn
Location: Langley Station - Deck 8 - Captain's Ready Room
Timeline: Mission Day 1 at 1500


1st Lieutenant Hannah Reeves had just arrived at Langley Station. According to her orders, Starfleet were relaunching a formally abandoned colony and she was here to review and construct the colony's defenses.

It wasn't until she arrived that she realized that the Station's commander was one Captain Kate Banninga. Wasting no time Hannah made her way to Kate's Office and activated the chime.

Kate was browsing through a stack of PADDs when the door signaled someone was there. Seeing the person on the other side she stepped up immediately. "Hannah, what are you doing here?"

"Good to see you too, Kate." Hannah said.

Kate laughed. "It is good to see you," she said. "I wasn't aware you would be on the station."

"I'm here to help with the colony, but I'll be staying on the Station for the time." Hannah explained.

"With the Engineering department I see." Kate answered. "We're blessed to have you here. How are you doing?"

"Thank you. I'm doing well. How about you?"

"I'm good. All healed up," she said as she waved her left arm up a bit, wondering who was gonna approach the elephant in the room.

"Have you heard from my idiot brother?" Hannah asked.

Kate took a deep sigh and looked at Hannah. "No, I haven't. Not since I last saw him on the Endeavour, just before I shipped home. How is he?"

"Well, he hasn't followed my advice, I told him to reach out to you." Hannah said. She sighed herself. "Looks like I'm going to have to try again."

Kate stood up and headed for the replicator. She didn't want to think about Owen, right now. She wanted to forget everything of the time when she lost her arm. Of everything the Borg had done to her. Including Owen. "Please don't," she asked softly. Turning to Hannah she continued. "Why drag all of that up now, it's been two years."

"I'm sorry," Hannah said. "I didn't even think how painful it must be for you."

Hurt wasn't the emotion that came up in her mind. More regret. "That's not it. I'm fully healed. Especially compared to other Borg victims."

Changing the subject Hannah said. "So, commander of a Regula Class station, congratulations."

"I guess someone really wanted me back in command. And knew me well enough to know I wouldn't want to serve on a ship anymore." she said with a chuckle.

"I've heard that even Starfleet Command makes a good decision once in a while." Hannah said with a laugh.

Kate smiled back. "I did run a science vessel before."

"That doesn't mean you know how those egg-heads think." Hannah pointed out.

"I guess I never did," Kate said, referring to Owen.
