Voyage to Mutiny
Location: Chief of Security's office/Captain's Ready Room
Timeline: Day 90 15:30

Kevin entered his office, head down, concentration fully on the PADD he was reading.

"Ah, the wanderer returns!" Karadis said loudly.

"JEEEESU........." Kevin began to say, as he recovered from the startling his Assistant had given him "will you ever stop creeping up on me like that Karadis???" he asked in annoyance.

"Probably not anytime soon, so I wouldn't get your hopes up" Karadis replied, a broad grin on her face as she replied.

"Why the hell are you creeping about in my office anyway?" Kevin asked her.

"Captain wants to see you ASAP" she replied.

"Did he say what it was about?" Kevin asked.

"Yes, he and I discussed the situation at length, and finally decided that it might be worthwhile bringing you in on it of you're a good boy" Karadis answered.

"So no then" Kevin replied, cutting through the rubbish Karadis just spouted.

"What do you think?" Karadis asked rhetorically.

Kevin rolled his eyes, he could tell it was one of *those* days.

"Right, I'm heading up to meet the CO now then, hold the fort whilst I'm gone" Kevin said "and don't go re-routing the buttons on my control panel like you did before when we were on the USS Frannery, I still haven't forgiven you for making me launch a life pod when I was trying to check the intruder alarms!"

Karadis burst out laughing "The look on your face that day!" was all she said before more hysterical laughter escaped.

Kevin shook his head, sighed heavily, turned and made his way to the turbolift. A minute or so later, he stood outside the CO's Ready Room.

Reaching forward, he pressed the chime and awaited a reply.

James pressed the button on his desk and the door opened.
"Come in,"

Kevin entered into the Ready Room and started saying "You asked to see me Cap....." and before he could finish the CO said.

"You'll be up to date with the mission." James continued with out waiting for a reply.

"Lieutenant O'Shea is modifying a shuttle to fly over the clouds we are detecting on the planet."

Slightly taken aback at the brusqueness of how the CO spoke, Kevin didn't let it show, instead simply nodding his affirmation.

"I want you to join him in the mission."

"Very good Sir" Kevin answered "do you have any specific orders for the Security department or myself personally?"

"Just keep your eyes out for anything. We have an away team heading towards the city, then from the other direction 3 clouds of could be smoke or dust heading there form the other side. The clouds are obscuring what ever causing them."

James thought for a moment. "If I were a betting man I say some sort of caravans, I believe they were common in the equivalent Earth era, transporting goods from one city to another."

"Aye Sir, we'll try to get a visual as best we can" Kevin replied "If thre's nothing else Captain, I best report to Lieutenant O'Shea."
