Mission: First Dawn
Location: Langley Station - Deck 2 - Main Engineering
Timeline: Mission Day 1 at 0900


Sitok walked into the station's main engineering and made his way around the power reactors and towards the master systems display table. He was looking for someone that could help get Langley Station up to regulation as soon as possible. He made eye contact with a young lieutenant with dark hair and decided that this would be a good start. "Greetings, lieutenant."

"Greetings, Commander, what can I do for you?" Hannah asked. Noticing he wore command red and was therefore probably the Station's XO.

"I am Sitok, Langley Station's new first officer. I have arrived fairly recently and came here to see about ascertaining the station status and to go over logistics. Is there a chief engineer?"

"I'm not sure, I haven't seen one yet, I'm 1st Lieutenant Hannah Reeves, by the way. I'm just lending a hand." Hannah said. "But from what I can tell the super structure is complete and most decks have power and lifesupport. Mostly it's just connecting up consoles and installing interior bulkheads."

He offered her a hand in greeting. Lieutenant Commander Sitok. It is good to meet you, Lieutenant Reeves. May I ask what your official function is aboard the station?"

"I'm a combat engineer by trade, and officially, I'm here to oversee the installation of defenses on the colony." Hannah replied.

His brow knit together in puzzlement for a moment. "I see. I'd like to run a level one diagnostic on all status systems but it appears that it will have to wait until the chief engineer and other staff arrive."

"As you wish, Commander." Hannah replied.

Sitok offered her an arched eyebrow as he looked around at the sparse engineering crew. "I realize that this isn't your primary role, nor is it something I would force on someone not assigned to this section. If you would be able to round up a few officers and be able to perform a level two systems diagnostic when you have a little time, I would be very appreciative. If it's something that you believe cannot be accomplished at this time, I would understand." He hoped that he wasn't the type to just walk in and start demanding things.

"Not a problem, Commander, I'll get it done." Hannah replied.

Sitok nodded approvingly. "Thank you for resolving this matter for me, lieutenant. Your dedication to duty will be remembered." He turned and made his way back towards the corridor. Hopefully the station would get a new chief engineer relatively soon.
