Mission: Settlers
Location: Various
Timeline: Current



{Deck 3-Shuttle Bay}

When the Officers entered the Shuttle Bay, Jamie landed and shut down the engines then turning to the others "Lieutenant thanks for your help....your free to resume your regular duties."

"You're welcome Commander...any time....I need to get down to the Tactical Center and tell my men to stand down" turning to Heather "I'm looking forward to that drink by the way" Katlyn said with a chuckle.

Heather smiled "Me too....soon I promise" she replied with a smile. Meanwhile Jamie sat having no idea what the two were up to. Katlyn rose from her seat and left the Shuttle for Deck 12.

Turning to the Ensign "I'm going down to the settlement and speak with Ted and get this mess straightened out once and for all. Actually if your free, do you want to tag along" Jamie said.

"Yes I'd like that but i need to make a couple of stops first if you don't mind" Heather replied.

"No that's fine....I need to let the Captain know what transpired on our visit anyway....let's meet in transporter Room One in one hour, if that's good for you" Jamie said. Heather nodded yes and the two Officers went their separate ways.

{Deck 1-Captain's Ward Room}

After touching base with Lieutenant Mist, Heather made her way to see Chef Jefferson about a very important matter; one which she hoped to be successful at.

{Deck 3-Transporter Room One}

Jamie arrived just before Heather and was talking to the Operator just to be friendly. Looking up he saw Heather walking in with something in her arms.

Looking at Heather "Where did you get that" he asked pointing to a little rabbit she held in her arms.

She just smiled "I persuaded the Chef to sell me this little one pointing out that it was too small for any meal solutions. So he agreed and here we are....I heard that some little girl on the surface was heartbroken when she lost the bunny" Heather replied.

Jamie just smiled then whispered "That's so thoughtful.....and that's why I love you so much." All three of them steeped onto the pads and momentarily were on their way.


When they materialized on the surface Heather looked around and saw a little girl with her mother in front of their dwelling. The Officers walked over to them as Heather said "I hear there's a little girl who lost a bunny." the girl looked up and came running over to Heather with a big smile on her face "Bunny!!!!! where have you been....I've looking all over for you" she stated as Heather handed her the little bunny which she held close to her "Thank you Lady for finding my bunny."

Heather looked down at the little girl "Your you be sure to take real good care of this little one...Ok?"

The little girl being all smiles nodded yes as her mother walked over to the Officers "Thank you so much....she was really upset when we made her come back with us without the bunny.....that was very kind of you."

Heather smiled "Your very welcome.....I know what it's like when a child losses a pet and maybe this will help her adapt to her new surroundings quicker." Then two Officers turned and left looking for Ted.

They walked over to the Town Meeting Hall and went inside and found Ted with some of the other Settlers "I hope we're not interrupting....but i need to speak with you Ted about the situation" Jamie explained.

The others left and Jamie proceeded to explain to Ted about the whole situation and what had transpired on the Moon. Then Jamie said "They have agreed to keep in communication with you since they are so close by and Dr Epoc has agreed to come here if anyone needs any kind of medical attention. So I guess he's going to be your new Doctor."

Ted smiled "Thank you so much Commander....It's nice to know that they are so close by and are ready to help us....and I did receive a communication saying that their intel was faulty about your Ship destroying us" he replied.

"Told you we aren't in the habit of going around destroying planets and peoples" Jamie said with a smile "I'm just glad we were able to get this whole mess sorted out for you."

"And again thank you Commander....I think we're all set as far as getting our planet sorted out and getting our new lives started so
if you and your Ship need to get on with other things....please feel free to do so" Ted replied.

"If your sure then I will inform the Captain and we'll be on our way in a day or so. It's been our pleasure to help you and your people get your new lives started" Jamie stated being very sincere "I guess we'll be on our way then" as Ted and Jamie shook hands.

When Jamie and Heather walked outside he tapped his Comm "Independence, this is O'Connell, two to beam back to the Ship and soon they left and the Settlers were very excited about their new lives on Astra.
