"It has been a long time since I've been on a warp sled, glorified shuttles made for long range transportation. Of course they're typically made for cargo trips, but this one was outfitted with a basic crew transfer pod. It's... cozy.

"I am not one for wordy reports and logs, but after my years in operations and strategic operations I have learned that making frequent, if even brief, entries in my own log bank, let alone official channels, helps me retain memories longer-term and search and research scenarios from the past. So here I am, watching the stars swipe by - yay window seat - waiting for Helios Colony to show up.

"I was comfortable on the Quinto until they promoted me, and then I was comfortable in that role as well. And now they are transferring me again to a newer Sovereign class as chief. It's a compliment, but it's also another layer of comfort that will take some time to sink into.

"Don't get me wrong, I love a good challenge, and running a larger, heavier cruiser like this will be quite exciting. Outpost and light scout operations are not quite as... massive. But this will be interesting.

"Beyond the changes, beyond the promotion, beyond the new captain (about whom I know very little, even from his public dossier), and beyond the mission at stake, I just hope I can find a worthy sparring partner. Otherwise, I'm going to have to abuse my own power in operations to allot myself plenty of power for my high-stakes holo-training programs. Most captain's and security folks don't like it when I turn off the safety protocols either."


"At any rate, I am looking forward to the assignment. This is the opportunity I've been looking for, in all honesty, ever since I decided to join Starfleet. I am proud of my people, but I am also proud of what Starfleet stands for. Let's just see if I can live up to its rightful standards."


"End log."
