Post A Learning Experience Reply with quote
-- Flashback --

As Lieutenant j.g. Daniel Morris finds himself on the fast track to graduate from officer's school, his final bit of training is an assignment to a real combat unit -- the 3rd Rear Guard, Flight squad on the space carrier Iaenszi, to be precise.

Morris sits on board a transport bound for the carrier with a few of his classmates who just happened to get the same assignment. As the vessel drops out of relativistic sub-light near the Iaenszi, Morris can hear the co-pilot begin her hailing procedures.

Daniel tries his best to keep his leg from shaking, he was managing pretty well so far. He'd sworn to himself that he wouldn't keep looking out the small windows as they approached the Iaenszi, he could hardly keep his eyes away.

He pulls at his collar a little, the stiff and starched fabric was agitating him, not to mention that he wasn't a big fan of the dress uniform to begin with. Not that it kept him from being any less excited. He runs a hand through his freshly clipped dark brown hair, feeling his nerves start to act up again. Taking in a deep breath Daniel feels the tension start to slip away. Some of it at any rate.

"My first big assignment, my first time on board a real fucking honest-to-gods in fucking service warship. This is going to be amazing, there's no reason for me to be getting so damned worked up over this."

Daniel, having gotten caught up in his thoughts and excitement, shakes himself out of it only when the transport has fully docked with the Iaenszi. The blast door opens slowly and the officer cadets are ushered out into the dock central.

Morris takes only a few steps onto the Iaenszi before he sees a man not far away perk up in recognition and approach him.

"You're Lieutenant j.g. Daniel Morris, yeah?" he asks. Daniel notes from the marks on this man's uniform that he is a 1st Lieutenant.

Daniel drops his bag to the deck as he snaps a salute to the Officer.

"Sir yes sir, Lieutenant Junior Grade Daniel Morris reporting for duty sir!"

The officer assumes a statue-like pose, face stern and frozen in formality. "1st Lieutenant Isaiah Brakhen: squad leader, Iaenszi Carrier Rear Defense Squad A."

The man's expression slowly breaks into a smile and laughter escapes him. He clasps Daniel on the shoulder. "No need now, kid. I'll be easy on you; I figure you've already gotten enough of the rough treatment anyway, not to mention what's in store for you in the days coming.

"Let's head up to the command deck. Anything you'd like to ask on the way is cool."
