Mission: Settlers
Location: Independence
Timeline: Current


{Deck 3- Crew Lounge}

Now that Tyre and his Staff had all of the equipment up and running, it was time to turn their attention to getting things operational. There were twenty five tables with one hundred chairs, so Tyre had his Prep and Line Cooks fill the salt, pepper shakers, sugar containers, and the napkin holders as well as clean and sanitize the tables. The area would serve one hundred Crew at a time which seemed right for the Crew Compliment the Independence had.

Meanwhile he and his Assistant Cook did light prep work for the dinner hour. Soon the Lounge was ready for any of the hungry Crew. Tyre wasn't really expecting a huge crowd since some of the Crew may have already eaten what they had been accustomed to.

Tapping his Comm “Commander O'Connell this is Crewman Amarock.” “O'Connell...go ahead Tyre” came the reply.

“Commander we are all set for any of the Crew who would like a real meal. Could you make an announcement and let the Crew know” Tyre asked.

“Yes it would be my pleasure” Jamie replied. Soon the Commander made a Ship wide announcement for the Crew to enjoy a fresh meal in the Lounge.

Shortly some of the Crew came filing in as Tyre commented to his Staff “Ok boys, you all know what to do.” The Prep Cook showed the Crew the menu boards which hung over the prep table in front and wrote up their orders and gave them to the two Cooks at the flat-top and stove. Quickly they cooked and plated the meals and put them in the window for pickup. Meals were flying out left and right as the Crew were being served and went to find a seat then select a beverage from the Replicators.

After awhile Katlyn and Gabriella walked in for a meal. Gabriella looked at the menu board “I think I'll have a cheeseburger and fries” she stated and Katlyn spoke up “Make that two orders.” Soon their food was ready as Tyre turned seeing the young women “Ladies....very nice to see you...and may I say you two are a vision of are your orders...enjoy your meal” Tyre said thinking that this was going to be a nice gig if all the ladies on the Ship looked this good. “Thank you” the ladies replied and Tyre had a big ol' smile on his face.

Gabriella and Katlyn grabbed their beverages and sat at a table when Katlyn commented with a grin “I think our new Ship's Cook is going to be quite the flirt.” Gabriella smiled “I know what you mean....but he's a little too old for my taste” she replied with a chuckle. “Just because there's a little snow on the roof that doesn't mean there's no fire in the furnace'” Kat stated with a snicker. They ate their meal enjoying some delicious freshly made food.

When they were finished they placed their plates and such in the proper area and headed for the door when Kat looked over “Sir....that was a very tasty meal” looking at Tyre. “Please call me Tyre and I'm glad you enjoyed your meal. Tell your friends and please do come back darl'in” he said with a smile.

Next to stop by for a meal was Commander O'Connell and Ensign Devroe. As they looked over the menu Tyre turned and saw Jamie “Commander nice of you to stopped by.....what can I make for you two” he said with a smile.

Jamie looked the menu over “I think I'll have the stew with biscuits” he stated. Then looking to Heather “And what would you like my dear” Tyre said noticing how beautiful this women was until he saw the rock on her finger as he commented “Boy that's quite a ring you have there.”

Heather smiled as she glanced over at Jamie “Thank you, the Commander and I are going to be married” she replied being quite proud of the fact....I think I'll have a dinner salad with house dressing.”

“Congratulations to the both of you....and may I say Commander you have a fine taste in women” Tyre said with a smile “Your orders will be right up as he turned to get their meals together. A few minutes later “Ok here you go your orders are ready” he stated and they grabbed their meals and went to sit at a table.

They were enjoying their meals when Heather commented “The Cook seems nice....but he seems to be quite the flirt.”

Jamie smiled “Yes I noticed that too....but I'm sure he's harmless enough....but he is right....I do have a great taste in women....well at least one women anyway” he said with a grin.

Heather smiled back as she reached for his hand “That's goes both ways you know....I think I have great taste in one man at least.”

After dinner Jamie and Heather walked over to the door as Jamie said “Tyre your food is very good, thank you.”

Tyre smiled “Thanks and I'm glad you enjoyed it. Don't be stranger either one of you” he stated with a grin. Then Jamie and Heather left for their Quarters now that their day was done and it was time to relax.

A few hours later the crowd thinned right out and Tyre went over to check the night's receipts....eighty
five meals served....not too shabby for the first partial day of service. He was sure after a couple of weeks that number would be much higher.

After the Kitchen was cleaned up and everything was put back in it's place, three of the Cooks called it a day except for the Line Cook who had offered to stay for a few hours longer in case those getting off of Beta Shift stopped by for something to eat. Tomorrow would be another day.
