The USS Raven had been dispatched to drop Will off at Starbase 118 on its way to Qo'nos. The XO had informed Will of their appending arrival so he was now walking down the corridor to the transporter room. He entered the room as the doors parted and the transporter chief looked up and smiled. "Ready when you are." he said to Will. Will nodded and stepped up onto the pad. "Good luck." added the chief. "Thank you, sir." Will replied just as he felt the beaming effect. A moment later, he found himself standing in the transporter room of the base. "Welcome Cadet." said the operator. "If you would just follow Ensign Hunter, she will show you your temporary quarters while you're aboard Starbase 118." "Thank you, sir." answered Will as he hefted his back and walked toward the door. "So. Fresh out of the Academy, huh?" asked the young female. "How did you get lucky enough to get this posting?" she added teasingly. "To be honest, I have no clue. I was looking forward to being assigned to a deep space assignment on a ship. But I'm not going to complain. At least it isn't Earth." Will said. "Not a fan of Earth?" she asked. "Just needed a change." came Wills answer. They walked alone for a few more moments before she spoke again. "Well. This is it. Welcome aboard. And I hope to see you again." she said with a grin as she turned to leave. Will entered the room and began unpacking. All he could do now was wait for the next training class to start.
