Lieutenant. Jg Alex Forsyth - Thrown into the deep end.


Recommended Posts

Really enjoyed this whole sim from @Alex Forsyth. Love the little touches of internal dialogue and insight into the nerves of sitting in the big chair! Not to mention the banter with @Alan Letts. ūüėČ

 
((Bridge, Deck 1, USS Eagle))
 
Forsyth: Eyes on the Road, Ensign.

That broke him, after she had just stared longingly at a chair for a solid 15 seconds. He thought it was rich and very entertaining.

Letts: Hah :: Sarcastically:: and miss THIS captivating image not a chance. :: He winked before rolling his eyes theatrically and shaking his head::

oO Let hope my family curse doesn't applied to acting captains.....Oo

She let out a nervous sigh, Trying to get comfy and relax.
 

oO Huh, I was expecting it to feel a lot nicer.... Oo  

Letts: Eyes on the Road... That poor chair probably needs counseling after being ogled like that.

Forsyth: Letts, Please don't embarrass me. 

Letts: Sorry Ma'am. I will attempt to remain focused.

She smiled, Proud that Letts could hold back the jokes. 
 
oO Maybe there hope for him yet?..Oo

Letts: So is your Captain's pose more Janeway or Kirk?

She ponders for a moment, Wondering if to humor him or focus on the task but her curiosity won out.  
 
Forsyth: Not sure, I was going for Rachel Garrett. 

Alex never really thought about her sitting pose, It wasn't something she was going to need at any point in her early career. She shifted slightly, Feeling bit awkward now but that feeling didn't last as a series of small alerts went off at Letts and tactical stations. 

Letts: Uhhh okay.

Forsyth: What is it, Ensign?

Before Letts could reply, Ensign Clara Halloway at tactical spoke up. 

Halloway: Ma'am, I'm getting a distress call. 

Forsyth: Clar-Ensign, Can you Identify it?

Halloway just shrugs as she works, Alex turns back to Letts.
 
Forsyth: Letts, Stand by to investigate.

Letts: Aye Ma'am
 
Alex didn't like this, She had hoped to just keep the ship here until the Commander returned but Ignoring a SoS was against protocol.  
 
Forsyth: Have you Identified it, Clara?
 
She curses herself for not addressing her by her rank or last name, Being captain is hard. 
 
Halloway: Yes, It....It is one of ours.
 
Forsyth: Another starfleet ship, We weren't informed of other ships in the area. 
 
She flipped through her memory, The closest ship was the USS Lockerbie and that was another sector away. 
 
Letts: Response
 
Halloway: No, I mean it's one of ours as in it from the Eagle. 
 
Forsyth: You mean It from the away team?
 
Letts: Response
 
Forsyth: Hold on, Where is the signal coming from? 
 
Halloway: Somewhere in front of us, Where our friends are at.
 
Letts: Response
 
Forsyth: Agreed, We should inform the commander. ::Looking at the door.:: Do I knock or call him?
 
Letts: Response
 
Forsyth: Yeah, I'll call him ::Tapping her combadge and clearing her throat.:: =/\= Bridge to Commander Flat =/\=

Falt: =/\= Response. =/\=

Forsyth: =/\= We're picking up a distress call, It identifies as Starfleet. =/\=

Any: =/\= Response. =/\=

Forsyth: =/\= It saids it from the eagle but it was also coming from that ship. =/\=

Any: =/\= Response. =/\=

Forsyth:  =/\= Should I plot a course or wait until we get a better picture?  =/\=

oO And let you take over....Oo

Falt: =/\= Response. =/\=

Thanks, I had to really think about how I wanted to play this out. I was also unsure about using the name USS Lockerbie, I assume it ok to name ships.
