Mission: Dispute
Location: Independence
Timeline: Current


After the Briefing had finished, Lieutenant Zebot made her way to Tactical and the Marine Center to inform everyone on the Captain's orders.....this would be the first test to see just how well the Tactical Team and the Marines would work together....Kat was quite hopeful.

{Deck 12 - Marine Country}

Unlike her first visit to the Marine Center, Katlyn walked in and the men didn't give her a second glance or even that she had entered what they felt as their domain. Walking up to one of the Marines "Private could you tell me where Sergeant Hunt is please" Kat asked with a smile. "The Sarge is in his Office Ma'am" came the reply. "Thanks" and she turned and went to the office and knocked waiting for a reply.

"Come in" the Sarge said. Katlyn walked in and smiled "Sergeant Hunt we have some things to discuss" she stated.

The Sarge smiled back "Please Lieutenant have a seat and tell me what's on your mind" Hunt replied.

Katlyn explained the new Mission and the role that both Tactical and the Marines would play. Kat suggested "I was thinking of running the Mission together with both of us in command; if we have to divide our forces to two different locations, then let's have each Team comprise both Tactical and Marines with each of us taking command of a group....what do you think" she asked.

Hunt thought for a few moments "That sounds good and I think it'll go a long ways to getting the two groups working together. Maybe we should address both groups together to start our relationship" Hunt responded.

"I like that Sarge....let me go get my Team and we'll meet you back here shortly" Katlyn replied then left the Office to head to the Tactical area.

Shortly the Lieutenant came back with her Team and had them line up. Hunt had his Marines line up as well as he started the meeting "Tactical and Marines we are about to undertake something that has not been done before. Marines I want each of you to go stand in between two Tactical men, so we end up with Tactical, Marine, and so on" he ordered. The Marines complied being a little confused at the moment.

Then the Lieutenant chimed in "What Sarge was referring to was for this Mission the Marines and Tactical will be working as one unit. Both groups are short staffed with Star Fleet not sending in more people to fill the gap. Sergeant Hunt and myself both will be in Command of the group together. I expect Tactical for you to show the Sarge the same respect that you show me and follow his orders to the best of your ability with no questions asked" Kat concluded.

"And I expect the same from you Marines if you know what's good for you"Sarge said being very serious. I'll let the Lieutenant explain what's going to happen next.

"We are heading to two planets for talks concerning their claims to the same Moon that orbits each planet one on one day and the other the next. We expect the talks to go well....but If things goes sideways then the Captain will be calling on us. That being said....all Men will be ready and on standby so we can deploy at a moments it for security reasons or worse" Katlyn concluded.

Sarge stood looking around the room "Any questions....let's hear them now" he ordered. Everyone looked at the other and no one uttered a word. "Good, if a question comes up from anyone please feel free to stop by my Office and ask. Lieutenant Zebot has other duties aboard ship and may not be available to answer questions, but I will be" he explained.

"One last thing, the talks are going to be conducted aboard the Independence so we may end up providing security during that time. I'm looking forward to the two groups working together as one....this is a historic event for Star Fleet....make us proud Men, dismissed" Kat concluded being very hopeful.

After the group broke up Sarge turned to Katlyn "I think that went well and this could prove to be very beneficial for the Ship" he stated with a smile.

"I agree and hopefully the Captain will see the same benefit as we do. If you'll excuse me Sarge I need to get to the Bridge" Kat said noticing that both groups were lingering talking to each other which put a smile on Katlyn's face as she left the area.
