Launch Bay 34Delta
The characters arrive in Launch Bay 34Delta. It is a large-ish shuttle type hangar bay. Several Danube class Runabouts are arrayed across the deck. The Cuyahoga and the Kitchissippi are parked along with the other runabouts, and are identified by the PADDs. Mac spots the USS Kitchissippi and heads over. Lieutenant Cynthia Milne is accompanying the others and seems oblivious to Gian's attentions.

A Chief Petty Officer approaches Mac. "Lieutenant...?" he gestures as he is obviously unsure who exactly Mac is, but assumes he a senior officer as he bears two full pips and a command red shirt. "I think you'll find the ships are fully prepped, but I'm sure you'll want to give'em a check."

As they enter the launch bay, Gian finds himself walking next Cynthia. "So, lieutenant, what brings you out this way? Are you an admin type, or is this a temporary gig?" he asks pleasantly.

Mac nodded at the Chief absently, running his hand down the length of the ship and leaning in to check areas for wear and slack maintenance.

"I'm a'Ndruhsgn, but you can call me Anderson or MacArthur because otherwise you'll offend my savage sensibilities by mispronouncing my name. Fragile ego, like to start fights, terrible mess hall habits - Barely civilized, got it? Good, now.."

He filled his PADD with the maintenance logs on the Kitchissippi and started to backtrack it for errors or misrepresentations.

"How does she balance out?" he asked, bending down to inspect the port impulse nozzle. "Why don't you find me someone on the deck crew familiar with her to walk me through her maintenance history and I'll let you go ahead and get on with more important things. While I'd love to have you to myself, I don't rate a Chief to hold my hand for this. You work for a living."

He straightened up and ran his fingers through his braids absently.

"One more thing, is the SB around to check out a flight plan? Once my ops shows up and I've gone over the logs I'll want to take her out and shake her upside down a little. No criticism intended," he said. "I'm just pretty hard on shuttles. Have a tendency to ride them until they're just ghosts and fond memories."

In reply to Mac Anderson (msg # 3):

"Hello Lt Anderson.I'm Lt Shione Kurasa and I might be able to assist making sense of the maintenance logs for you.

It's my understanding that I'm going to be your Engineer on the  USS Kitchissippi.

Perhaps I can help set your mind at ease as to the ship's fitness,but only if you would like me to.
 I wouldn't want to start off our serving together by damaging that fragile ego of yours"

she adds with a wink and a friendly smile

Mac sees a tall strong looking woman,who walks with a sense of balanced grace,tempered with a warrior's caution as she maintains an arm's length distance from him

The chief hands you a PADD. "All part of the service, sir. It's my launch bay and I like to keep my hand in. I'll let you get to it. Any help you need, just ask PO3 Altanin over there." He gestures to a group of crewmen over by a maintenance bay.

According to the records on the PADD, the USS Kitchissippi, which gets its name from the Algonquin name for the Ottawa River (meaning Great River), is a very new ship, just having completed its shakedown. As you look over the hull, the finish gleams dully in the bay lighting, absolutely smooth and blemish free.
