I'm not at all offended. I think that you may be missing the point of a society that includes other species, but really.. it's a tiny detail. Play like you want.

A senior chief petty officer is "senior chief". A master chief petty officer is "master chief". Awkward, perhaps, but it's the way that it is.

Subject: a couple of things...


Darnit, Toporov keeps calling to me to post for him...

Regarding the use of the term "Mister" (this is briefly mentioned in post #3, page 1, of this Q&A):

While Chief Cook can obviously feel any way that she wants to feel, I take issue with the idea that "Mister" is an antiquated or sexist term. To the contrary, there are two ideas in play here.

1) this game is set in a slightly more "military flavored" Trek universe than you might see in the television shows.

2) the term "mister" is absolutely ubiquitous, and on board a vessel, is pretty much detached completely from gender.

Think about it. In the Federation, there are many species - let alone those in the known universe that are not part of the Federation. Many of those would logically have vastly different views on gender than would humans; some societies would be matriarchal, some would be gender-neutral, some would be genderless, some have multiple genders.

Note that we have a Rigellian in Security - "his" gender is "exomale"; Rigellians actually have four genders.

The use of both "mister" and "miss" would lead to a far greater chance of causing personal offense if used incorrectly. And what do you call a being that has no gender? Or one that has a gender that does not map to one of the two binary settings that humanity defaults to? A term like "sentient" seems awfully artificial. "Sentient Cook, report to Sickbay". C'mon.

So the idea is that "mister" is a term that already existed in the English language, which is what is spoken in Starfleet. It has evolved, at least in military use, as a generic title for a person. Yes, "mister" and "miss" still have technical definitions that are gender-based, but aboard a ship, those are secondary definitions.

As a Chief, Cook would have been in Starfleet for well over a decade; this would be so utterly ingrained that I doubt she even hears the word. Again, play her like you want, but know that the term is truly gender neutral aboard a twenty-fourth century Federation vessel.


Regarding Ensign Blackmon - as Eol pointed out, she was a PC super briefly, but little was written about her; I'm fine if you edit pretty much anything about her.

Silas is a hardass for sure, but a lot of that has to do with him trying to be the best officer he can be. He's not always a "strictly by the book guy" (see the Tesenblen situation), but most of the time, doing the right thing as the Captain means following the book and expecting that of others.

I see him as a lonely guy prone to the occasional bout of melancholy. This job is all he ever really wanted out of life, but he never expected to be alone forever, either. He doesn't let his guard down easily, and the only woman he was ever serious about died, so Starfleet is his life. He's not prone to opening up, so he has few really deep, meaningful friendships.

Boo Boo, I think that your post has an incorrect timeline for Crane's punishment. Let me clarify in case Drake's language was not clear. This punishment covers thirty-one total days.

Days 1-3: brig, bread & water
Days 4-17: confined to quarters save duties. no off days. extra duties.
Days: 18-31: extra duties.

Stardate 2365.02.09
USS Peregrine, Captain's Mess - 1428



The room was now empty save the Captain, who sat in moody silence at the table. With a slightly irritated expression, he dismissed the holographic data readout that still hung suspended in the air above the table.

Silas sighed as the vision of Chief - no, petty officer Crane, he reminded himself, being led away to the brig popped into his mind's eye. He saw the sadness and resignation on her face, saw Lieutenant Berk doing his best to remain neutral and impartial, and the memory made him feel hollow.

Drake had not failed to notice the expressions around the Captain's Mess when he had handed down the punishments - particularly that of the bread and water restriction. It was an ancient punishment, one that he had given the maximum allotment allowed by Starfleet... and one that he had never even heard of another Captain handing down. His officers has been surprised, and likely a bit taken aback; hopefully, it was clear now to everyone that Silas meant business when it came to discipline.

His original thought had been to give a full week in the brig, but truth be told, that would have harmed the department more than Silas was comfortable doing. Better to make the point clearly in a shorter amount of time.

Better, that is, if he hadn't managed to alienate the crew too much.

Silas shook his head ruefully. Even Tochi - his closest friend aboard the Peregrine, and someone who the Captain believed he enjoyed an excellent rapport with - had given him a look quite akin to one of betrayal. That look stung even worse that the expression on Crane's face as she was led away.

Drake frowned. Lieutenant Zai had the right to disagree, but at the end of the day, the responsibility fell to Silas to ensure that everyone did their duty. The punishment had been harsh, but he truly believed that it had also been quite fair - had Crane foolishly opted for a court martial, she would have easily faced eighteen months on a penal colony to go along with her dishonorable discharge. Three days of bland rations were a far cry from that. After all, it's not as if there were any doubt of Crane's guilt, nor any excuse for her actions.

So why, then, did he feel so conflicted?

Had this been one of his ancestor's ships, the punishment would have been worse. Were this the Golden Hind, Crane would have been ecstatic to have received a thorough lashing followed by her current punishments, rather than that worse fates that often awaited those who tried to subvert their Captain. Then again, this was no seventeenth century Terran barque; with the possible exception of the occasional dark fantasy following a particularly bad day, Silas would never consider something like a hanging or beheading for mutinous actions.

Now regarding Jacobs, on the other hand...

Silas chuckled and took his feet. There was work to be done; now was not the time to indulge such macabre fancies.

With his back ramrod straight, Drake spun and exited the Mess. His crew would do their duty, as would he.

***********************************************

Stardate 2365.02.09
USS Peregrine, Bridge - 1435



Fortunately, there was little left to do in Alpha shift. Silas sat in the command chair as beta shift began to filter in. It had been entertaining to watch the poorly contained enthusiasm of a young, red-haired petty officer prepare to take her first shirt at the helm. Tochi was patient and kind, while this Petty Officer Owen was... well, rather bouncy.

It was clear that the newest helmsman of the Peregrine was just itching for the chance to take control, and Ensign P'Tammah seemed to not object. Silas watched with a bit of a twinkle in his eye as Tochi observed her go through her checklist, but eventually, the Captain began to feel like the proverbial third wheel.

"Lieutenant Zai," he spoke, "it seems that you have the situation here well in hand. I sincerely hope that you have a boring, uneventful shift. You have the Conn."

With that, he exited the bridge and headed for the ready room. He would need to log the events of the Mast, and as always, there was paperwork to be done.

Nice post, Brennus! I thoroughly enjoyed it. It's fun to "see" how other characters perceive events and people.

To Asovil, Drake is apparently a seething ball of anger; to Berk, he's stony and unapproachable. Of course, neither have been around him long, and as a result, haven't seen other parts of his personality. So their impressions are quite fair, yes?

As for being a semi-central character... that's entirely up to you, sir. As the CTO of a Saber class vessel - and a -P variant, at that - combat and tactics are central to our missions. As such, Berk can expect to be right in the middle of a LOT of the plot. I can say with certainty that he's going to be thrust into the spotlight very soon... I'd rather not have to NPC him.

Stardate 2365.02.09
USS Peregrine, Captain's Mess - 1412



((OOC: I have put a few words into Chief Crane's mouth, assuming that she would answer direct questions. She is not my NPC, however, so if I assumed incorrectly, please let me know and we can edit.

Likewise, neither Berk nor Lasad have been super active of late, so I assumed that they would also answer direct questions. If either player has an issue with this we can edit.))

************************************************

Once Drake had presented the case as he understood it, it was Chief Crane's turn to give her version of events. The scientist was calm and measured as she presented her side. To her credit, she did not deny the facts, nor did she offer any excuses. What she did communicate, however, troubled Silas more than a little. Unless he misunderstood, Chief Crane's basic narrative was that she did not feel that command would hear her concerns, so she felt compelled to seek outside help. She was very sorry, she never meant any harm to come to anyone's career.

And yet, at this very moment, Silas knew that Lieutenant Tesenblen was sitting in a brig awaiting a formal court martial. There would likely be at least some sort of inquiry as to Drake's own involvement in the incident. And for what? Hurt feelings?

The Captain kept his face impassive as Chief Crane completed her narrative. Then, to no surprise, Tochi spoke up.

"As Chief Crane's advocate, Captain Drake," Zai said, meeting Silas' gaze, "we would like to offer a few words, if we may."

Drake nodded. "Please do, Lieutenant."

Not surprisingly, Tochi played the only real card in his hand - he pled for leniency for Chief Crane, citing an exemplary career and lack of previous disciplinary issues. For a moment, Silas allowed himself to be swayed ever so slightly; after all, he had no desire whatsoever to mete out punishment for the sake of punishment alone. Unfortunately, Zai continued to speak.

Silas found himself to be more than a little surprised as Tochi opined that perhaps all of the command staff shared in culpability for Chief Crane's actions, as he implied that there had been some failing to establish trust which contributed to the Chief's feelings that she had to take the matter outside of the Peregrine.

"Again, sir," Lieutenant Zai concluded, "I present these items for your consideration in determining appropriate consequences in regards to this matter, not in any attempt to justify the Chief's actions, nor to deflect or deny guilt."

Appropriate consequences? Silas mused bitterly.

Once Zai had completed his speech, the Captain looked around the room. "Thank you for your input, Lieutenant Zai," Drake spoke. "Does anyone else have anything to contribute that the feel may be pertinent to the matter at hand?"

((OOC: assuming no one does))

Drake nodded. "Very well, then," he spoke.

The Captain leaned back in his chair just a bit.

"On the one hand," Silas opened, "I hear the plea for leniency, and it strikes a chord within me. The main reason I was so surprised to learn of these events was specifically because Chief Crane has always maintained a spotless service record. I have no desire to punish for the sake of punishment alone." Drake's voice began to take on a bit of an edge. "And yet..." he trailed off.

The Captain's tone grew cold. "This is the first major disciplinary action I have had to take part in since assuming command of the Peregrine. What I do here today will establish precedent for the duration of my command. I fear that if I slap the Chief on the wrist today, it will send the message to the crew that discipline and order are not the priority that they should be. I do not see exactly how I can reconcile the claim of 'no bad intentions' with the reality of a conscious, willing, major violation of the chain of command."

Drake fixed his gaze on Chief Crane. "Chief, you are a geneticist, correct? With my own background light in the sciences, I would be a fool to question you in areas of, say, sequencing of unknown RNA or DNA, or in various gene therapies, or in diagnosing various genetic disorders, or in analysis of the genetic makeup of exo life forms, or in any one of a myriad of other subjects that I likely have only the most basic notion of. Wouldn't you agree that I should, in fact, trust specialists like yourself in areas like these?"

Crane looked a little dubious to Silas. "Yes, sir," she offered quietly.

Drake nodded. "I see. Chief, from your service record, I see that you have been in Starfleet some fifteen years. However, it would appear that perhaps my copy of your service record is incomplete. Tell me, Chief... exactly how many years of experience do you have in command of a starship?"

Crane blinked. "Sir?" she asked.

Silas frowned. "It's a simple question, Chief. How many years of command experience do you have?"

The Chief glanced at Tochi before answering. "None, sir."

Silas nodded. "None. Ah. Perhaps you were in some other command staff position, then? First or second officer, perhaps?"

Chief Crane looked miserable as she answered. "No, sir. I have not served in such a capacity."

Drake was aware that his approach was overkill, but he had now committed to the course. "Very well," he spoke. "Perhaps my copy of your service record is only missing the command training that you have recently completed?"

The Chief shook her head slightly and cast her eyes down. "No, sir. I have not completed such training."

Silas frowned again. "Hmm. I wonder, then, Chief... what exactly was your basis for believing that you were better equipped to make a command decision for this ship than I or the existing command staff?"

Chief Crane looked even more miserable. "I don't know, sir. It wasn't like that, sir... I was just worried about the mission..."

Drake cut her off. "So you told us, Chief. You were concerned that the chance acquisition of this rare plant would have become known to the diplomats, one of which would then possibly plan to disable the security protocols we had in place so as to use the plant to murder the other, and thus sabotage the peace process."

The Captain fixed his gave on Lieutenant Berk. "Lieutenant Berk," he began, "assuming that you were to take us by surprise, how long would it take you to kill everyone in this room with the sidearm you are wearing?"

The Chief Tactical Officer looked more than a little surprised at the query. "Sir?" he asked.

Silas narrowed his eyes. "Just answer the question, Lieutenant. If you were to take us by surprise, how long would it take you to kill everyone in the room with your sidearm?"

Berk looked decidedly uncomfortable. "Er... well, sir. It honestly would only take a few seconds. I mean, we're practically at point blank range, so assuming I prioritized my threats, it wouldn't take long."

The Captain nodded. "Thank you, mister Berk. That estimate, of course, is for your sidearm; if I am not mistaken, we stock phaser rifles in our armory that are more powerful than your hand phaser, and we also stock heavier weapons and explosives - some of which could, in fact, punch a hole though the hull. Do we not?"

Berk nodded. "Yes, Captain. We have more powerful weapons like the ones you describe."

Drake seemed mollified. "Thank you, Lieutenant."

He turned his gaze to Lasad. "Lieutenant Lasad, how difficult would it be to use the replicator to create various engineering compounds that could be used to commit murder?"

The Ops chief seemed prepared for this line of questioning. "It would not be difficult, sir. There are many such compounds that could be easily synthesized. Some are toxic, others could be combined to create corrosive or explosive materials."

Drake remained impassive. "Is it not true, Lieutenant, that even the food replicators could be used in such a way? Are there not dishes in the computer catalog that some species consider to be edible - if not actual delicacies - that could, in fact, sicken or kill members of other species?"

Lasad nodded. "That is true, sir."

"Thank you, Lieutenant," the Captain stated before turning his gaze back to Chief Crane. "Chief, I could page medical if you like, but I am certain than Doctor Moore would confirm that many medicines - some easily obtainable - can be used to sicken or kill. And we haven't even scratched the surface of tricks like modifying a photon torpedo to explode within the ship or just after a launch; such an act could kill everyone aboard."

Drake tapped on his PADD, and the table projector display changed to written documentation. "If you would be so kind as to examine this data, you will note some relevant facts about the wolfsbane. Yes, it is possible for the plant to cause death, but the biggest risks associated with growing it are that it can cause nausea and sleepiness in humans exposed to the aromas of the plant, and that skin contact with the plant can cause sickness. Death typically requires ingestion of the plant, but it has an extremely unpleasant flavor which curtails this - most deaths associated with it arose via application though broken skin, as in a blade coated with the plant's material, or introduction via mucous membranes such as the female genitalia."

The Captain arched his eyebrows. "I pray that you will forgive me if I found these scenarios to be slightly less likely than obtaining a traditional weapon or poison. The containment fields were more for the comfort and day to day safety of the crew than for anything else. And there is, of course, the fact that Lieutenant Tesenblen had obtained seeds for the plant, seeds that would not, in fact, yield full sized plants until long after the current diplomatic mission was completed. As such, I determined that the wolfsbane provided a negligent risk to the mission, and that the security protocols proposed by Lieutenant Tesenblen were more than adequate to ensure the safety of the crew."

Silas went silent then, and allowed the silence to hang over the room for a few long moments. Eventually, he fixed his gaze on Crane once more.

"Chief," he spoke, "I want to be abundantly clear - my issue is not with the fact that you questioned my judgment. Had you gone through appropriate channels and raised your concerns to me, I would have shared the above data with you and hopefully set your fears at ease. If, for some reason, you had information that I was not privy to, I would have gladly considered it. I do not take the safety of this ship or her crew lightly. I am responsible for more than sixty souls, and I bear that responsibility with every fiber of my being."

The Captain's voice once again took on a hard edge. "However, much like I choose to trust you and the other specialists in the execution of your duties, so too do I expect for you to trust the chain of command. It is my job to make decisions like this one, and I do not believe that it is too much for me to expect you to understand that I will make those decisions in the best interests of this crew, this ship, and our missions. This is the entire foundation of the operation of a starship - we must trust one another to do our jobs... especially on a craft of this size, where there is little to no redundancy in any given department or position. If that trust is not there, we are doomed to fail before we even undertake a task."

Drake shook his head slightly. "Lieutenant Zai feels 'almost ashamed' in the lack of faith we as a command staff have instilled that would cause you to feel you needed to go outside the chain of command to resolve this matter." He paused for a moment. "I, on the other hand, am absolutely appalled that such a condition would exist to begin with."

His face a a cold, stony mask, the Captain continued. "I am unaware of any situation that I or Lieutenant Zai have so grossly mishandled over the past three months to justify such a lack of faith. In fact, I can think of no situation during that time - that being, of course, the time since I assumed command of this vessel - that crew safety has ever been put at risk from any decision. It would seem to me, then, that the failing is yours, Chief - not ours."

Drake sighed. "The chain of command is there for a reason. If it is not respected, people die and ships are lost. It may sound like an oversimplification, but that is the absolute truth. As a scientist, you may not have been involved in such situations, but that does not diminish their reality. Absent clear and irrefutable evidence that the Captain is making a choice to unnecessarily endanger the crew or the ship, you are honor bound to respect that chain of command. Even then, many an officer has found themselves on the wrong side of a court martial for choosing to stand against it; you must realize that while you are, in fact, a trained expert in your field, the fact is that Starfleet has expended not insignificant resources to train Command officers to likewise be fit for their posts. Let the record show that I have an open door policy - you may always bring your concerns to me - but even so, I expect for orders to be followed and the chain of command to be respected at all times. There are no exceptions."

The Captain cleared his throat. "Chief Crane, had we still been at port when I discovered your transgression, I would have beached you on the spot. Fortunately for your career, that was not the case. Be that as it may, here is my ruling."

Drake fixed Crane with his gaze. "Chief Petty Officer Lauren Crane, I do hereby find you guilty in the matter of this gross violation of the chain of command, and find no mitigating circumstances to justify your actions in any degree. Therefore, your punishment will be as follows.

First, you are hereby reduced in rate to Petty Officer, First Class. All privileges and benefits are likewise hereby reduced.

Second, you will be confined to the brig for three days, during which you will subside on bread and water rations only.

Third, upon completion of your time in the brig, you will return to duty, as the science department can ill afford being short an experienced staff member. However, for the next fourteen days, you will remain confined to quarters when not actively conducting your normal duties or such special projects as your department head may assign to you. During this fourteen day period, you will forego any 'off days' as may have been part of your normal schedule, instead making yourself available for duty shifts as needed by your department head to help cover for the strain of others being forced to work extra shifts to cover for your absence. You may visit the crew mess to obtain your own meals during this time period, but you will take said meals in your quarters.

During this fourteen day period, you will be assigned extra duties to be completed once your normal daily shifts are done.

Fourth, for the fourteen days following this period, you will be likewise assigned extra duties to be completed once your normal daily shifts are done.

Finally, a written reprimand will be placed into your service record."

The Captain took a breath. "I trust that this will be the end of the matter, and that chain of command will never again be an issue with you, Petty Officer Crane. Understand that if anything like this ever happens again, the punishment will not be so light - your career in Starfleet will be over. Understand, too, that I expect you to return to full and vigorous execution of your duties. If I find out otherwise... well, let's trust that I won't find out otherwise."

Drake looked around the room. "If no one else has anything to add?"

((OOC: assuming not))

Silas nodded. "Very well. Lieutenant Berk, please escort Petty Officer Crane to the brig. The rest of you are dismissed."
