Captain DeGarmo had not been listening to the conversation between the crew members, but suddenly found himself being addressed by one of the young women.  He looked up at her at cocked his head quizzically.  "I'm sorry, I wasn't listening to your conversation", he said with a straight face, "what was your question, er, guardsman...?"  He tried to look for rank insignia and her name tag to get her name, as it was now time to put faces and names of his crew together.

"Graves." Harper finished, offering her last name freely. She then propped both her elbows on her knees and bracketed her face with her hands. “I was asking what the deal was… the plan. If we knew yet what orders were. You know the usual things to discuss while trying to lounge in the lounge.”

Re: Kvant - Lounge

Wes chuckled to himself at her retort and made a mental note to watch this one... she had pluck and possible potential.  "Well, Graves, the official planning session hasn't occurred as of yet but it is imminent.  No ops communique as yet from HQ, so I've been using the short time since assuming command to make sure we have all the nuts and bolts required to pull off any combat operation they might come up with."

Seeing this opening as a chance to get to know his crew a little better, he decided to pounce on the opportunity.  He leaned over and picked up his coffee mug and took a sip, then looked over at her and asked, "So, what's your story, Graves?  Give me a synopsis of your 201 file (military record) to date."  He leaned back in his chair to absorb whatever she chose to throw his way.

Harper's grin brightened and she settled back in her chair, crossing her legs and nonchalantly resting her arms on the armrests. "The usual... Joined the Alliance young and eager." She shrugged and rolled her eyes at the next bit of information, "Wallie. Maczarek." Harper had a feeling she was being too formal, but the new captain would more than likely read the crew's files anyway.

Re: Kvant - Lounge

"So you joined the Alliance military after the war", Wes said as he assessed her and considered her brief resume, "then went into private security after your contract was up.  Get enough of regular military life, did you?".  Another sip of coffee and he continued, "Three questions for you, Harper.  How long have you been with Maczarek?  Have you determined a specialty you enjoy?  What are you best at?"

Before Harper could reply, Palmer's comm vibrated. When he looked it said that a Major Langer wanted to speak to him.

Re: Kvant - Lounge

As he looked down to check his comm unit, Wes held up his index finger to Harper to get her to hold up on her reply.  Seeing it was a request from Major Langer, he said, "Harper our chat is going to have to wait, so I'll take a rain check if that's okay."  He arose from his seat with coffee and Cortex reader in hand, then said, "It seems we might get an answer to your ops question."  The Captain then headed out the Lounge door and headed directly to the Bridge to contact the Major.

Bryan waited for Wes to leave the lounge before turning to the others, "So what's your gauge on the new CO? I know that wasn't much of an introduction but do you think he can hack it?"

"I'd say he can", Michelle replied, "He wouldn't have got the gig if the Colonel didn't believe he could do so".

She continued reading the magazine and tutted a couple of times.

Re: Kvant - Lounge

The loudspeakers chimed throughout the ship, alerting the crew of an important message.  Then the captain's voice came over the system in a quiet but firm voice, saying

**"This is the Captain speaking.  Guardsman Graves, report to the Bridge immediately.  Captain out"**

Harper watched the new captain leave, her response hanging on the tip of her tongue. This was starting to look like it was going to be a whole different ship with DeGarmo in charge. Part of her was thrilled at the thought…

“Depends. Colonel might have wanted someone that could be controlled easily… or you could be right. Guesss we’ll see, though.” Harper sat up and scooped a magazine for herself only to have to toss it back down as DeGarmo’s voice resounded through the lounge.

“They got bugs in here?” Standing, Harper glanced from Michelle to Bryan.  She shook her head and headed out to the bridge.

"Only one persistent cockroach", Michelle replied as Harper left.
