{Deck 2 - XO's Office}

After the meeting with Mystery and some of the other Senior Officers, Jamie returned to his Office. He walked in and grabbed a water from the replicator and sat at his desk going over what needed to be done for the talks with the two Planets. When he had things organized he tapped his Comm "Lieutenant Zebot this is the XO."

A few moments later "Go ahead Commander" Kat replied.

"Lieutenant I would like a four man Security detail at the talks and an escort for the two planet's delegates from the Transporter Room to Cargo Bay #2 where the talks will be held" Jamie ordered.

"Consider it done Commander....I figured you'd need some of my men for Security so I've already put a team together with the others on standby.....just in case something goes amiss" Kat informed the XO.

"Excellent....I'll let you know when exactly the talks will start" Jamie replied. Then tapping his Comm again "Lieutenant Balrog have one of your staff meet me in Cargo Bay #2....I need to go some things for talks between the two Planets" Jamie ordered.

"Ok Commander I'll have someone there directly" Brooks replied sounding a little distracted as usual. Jamie just shook his head....he was baffled how Brooks had managed to keep his rank and position aboard Ship....if ever there was someone to show what an Officer shouldn't be like then Brooks was the poster child. Although he did provide some amusing moments. Now that the necessary plans had been made the Commander was off to the cargo Bay.

{Deck 5 - Cargo Bay #2}

O'Connell walked into the cargo bay and was greeted by a young Ensign " Commander....I'm Ensign Patty Dillon....Lieutenant Balrog assigned me to make the necessary arrangements for the upcoming talks" she stated with a smile.

" Ensign, it's very nice to meet you" he replied then continued "I don't recall seeing you aboard before now.....are you new to the Independence?"

"Yes Commander...I've only been aboard a few weeks. Matter of fact this is my first assignment since graduating from the Academy" Patty commented "But I'm ready to work so tell me what you need and I'll see to it gets done Sir."

O'Connell smiled "Welcome aboard Ensign and I'm sure you'll be an asset to our Crew" he replied. Jamie went over everything that would be needed for the talks including a large round table so that everyone were equal in their seating and no one could claim a place of honor.

"Thank you Commander....I'm happy to be here. If there's nothing else then I'll get to work on this directly" the Ensign replied.

"No that's all I have but if you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask....I'd rather have you ask than have to redo something" Jamie instructed with a smile.

"Understood Commander" she replied then turned and started the task that had been presented to her.

O'Connell realized it was getting late in the day and since everything was underway, Jamie decided to call it a day and go home to see his lovely Heather.
