Mission: The Drumhead (Empok Nor Premier)
Location: Security Office
Timeline: MD003 1000 hrs

Elloma had her bags in her hands, she was still recalling the night before. She really enjoyed the party she had last night in her honor. She did not expect the reception she was given. She was not a department head. Only an assistant chief of security. Not uncommon for junior officers, to be transferred. She was sad to go, but she knew what was at stake.

She left, cause she needed the resources of Empok Nor. There was a mystery that needed to be solved, and she was at crossroads on the USS Pioneer. She needed to find out what really happened to the ship, when she was in the alternate universe.

She was not the only officer, in another universe. Apparently the entire crew was. And if the evidence was to believed, it appeared that the USS Pioneer was in another universe as well. Or in this universe, and someone was hiding something.

Elloma stepped off the transporter padd on the station. She had a datapad in her hand. She started to make her way to the security office on the station. She started to make her way down the corridor.

There was a lot of personal, walking to and from the promenade area. More than on a the USS Pioneer. At first, it seemed a little overwhelming. She knew she would adapt, eventually.

Elloma was looking forward to meeting Lieutenant Commander Dartaw K'gunn. A Klingon chief of security for the station. She wondered what he was like. She hoped he was more social-able than Worf. She heard how rigid he was. She knew that most Klingons were party type and fighters. So being security made sense to her. But she did not know, which type he was.

Elloma walked into the security office. She noticed Lieutenant Commander Dartaw K'gunn. She snapped to the position of attention and called out. "Lieutenant Junior Grade Elloma Essu, reporting for duty." She had her orders in her hand.

Dartaw looked the Kriosian up and down. As he did so his face was impassive, giving away nothing. When he finally spoke his voice was a rich baritone. "Welcome to Empok Nor, Lieutenant. At ease. You may sit, if you wish." He said. Before joining Starfleet Dartaw had spent time in the Klingon Special Forces, as such it took time for him to lower his guard, even around workmates or potential friends, this meant he came across as cold at first to those he met.

Elloma took a seat, she was not sure what to make of her new commanding officer. "Thank you sir, sorry if my transfer came as a surprise." She said, hoping that Dartaw was okay with it. Her primary reason for the transfer was classified, but in no way would impede her duties on the station.

"Your transfer was a surprise, what concerns me though, is that your reason for it is classified. I will not ask you to break confidentiality, I have no right to do that, but I expect you to perform your duties to this Department and Station do the best of your abilities." Dartaw said. "Is that clear, Lieutenant?" He asked.

"Very sir, and my mission here is first and foremost the security of this station." Elloma said, wanting to reassure him. But she and Quinn and the rest of the team did not know who to trust. They needed to keep this to a minimum. She wished she could read him in, on what was going on. She knew from a department head perspective, it would be very discouraging to have an assistant that was working on a big project, and unable to talk about it.

"Okay, just know that I will be closely observing your performance, until I can ensure the validity of your words." Dartaw replied. "That said, I best put you to work." He said handing her a PADD. "That is today's work roster, I'd like you to spend your first duty shift, getting to know our staff and the Station. Do you have any problems or comments?" He asked.

"No sir, I look forward to getting to know your crew. And will do my best to mould into the team. And assist you of course." Elloma said, trying to show humility in this awkward moment.

"Very well, Lieutenant, you are dismissed." Dartaw said.

"Yes sir." Elloma said, she snapped to the position of attention. And then a direct about face. Thinking to herself, that was a very short meeting. She started to think about her mission on the station, as the scene fades.
