*Lt Anya Hadubrandsdauhter has decided that the stress of working on board the ship as an officer has become a tad to much so has offered to run the ship's librery writeing reports and updates on what's going on aboard the ship*

At least i'll get some quiet work to do at my own pace!

And wont have to rush around all day after everyone! I wonder if i'm the only sane person on here! </>

Very probably, ma'am. Hold on tight now - we're being fired at by the Romulans. But don't worry - the triellium shielding will protect us.

When I have time, I will write you a report on triellium shielding. It will be of great scientific interest, I'm sure.

Respectfully,

Ma'am, the Romulans have gone away. You may breathe easy now.

PS I'll send you over a bio on Oberweltraumfuehrerin Mathilde von Traum sometime. She's a piece of work, if you don't mind my saying so.

Lt Hadubrandsdauhter -

Just a few notes on the new weapons systems. A manual is being made up.

The new systems include a fully-functional phaser bank, which has both weapons and engineering uses. It possesses an 8-level energy spectrum, corresponding to the colours red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigio, violet, and octarine.

The photo torpedoes are also now online, as we have received supply from the CSS January - although they won't give us transporters, as they say we won't use them responsibly.

The triellium shielding is unique in galactic history - it has been sought after, but never built before.

When the triellium shielding is up, an opponent's fire is absorbed into the shielding of the ship, then redirected towards its source.

Therefore, the harder they fire at us, the more damage they sustain.

It's simple and elegant, and should eliminate damage to the ship from annoyed Romulans.

That's it for now. The Captain wishes me to convey his admiration for your coolness under fire yesterday, and to remind you that you are invited to the celebratory cocktail party later in the senior officers' mess.

Have a pleasant diurnal anomaly.

Respectfully,

Jamison Douglass

Lt Hadubrandsdauhter -

This is Lt David. I thought I'd drop you an eline, since they're all off celebrating on the planet, and I - as usual - am left answering the phone. Typical.

Jamison will probably answer you when he gets back. I'll bet that tom is AWOL, but it's not my business. I wouldn't tangle with him - did you see his face lately? And Lt Santos'? They got into a fight on the shuttle the other day - Santos had to phaser him into submission. And then caught h*** from the Captain for protecting himself - seems that jolt we felt on the ship was what happens when you phaser an astral engineer. So the Captain's all worried about his precious tom.

I have to work in the same office with them, and it's no picnic, believe you me. If they aren't plotting mischief, they're giving you *looks*. I wish this ship ran on nuclear energy, or something else sane, instead of symbiosis with a two-legged maniacal animal.

You're lucky to be in the Library. At least you don't have to put up with all this.

Lt David

*Voice message to Lt Hadubrandsdauhter*

Please ensure a message is logged warning personnel not to sleep in the Arboretum!

We seem to have an infestation of ants! Can you please find out if there is any way we can at least cull the colony, before they take over my favourite viewing area!

*Memo*

Lt Hadubrandsdauhter -

According to the treaty with the Romulans signed on Carfax Beta, the ants are under Ameisenschutz - which means they are a protected species.

Captain Sharpe says that Lt Commander Mai can sleep in a bed like everyone else.

*Memo*

Lt Hadubrandsdauhter -

We're conducting a test of a crucial system during Third Watch.

If all goes well, there will be no problems for you to worry about, and I or Rory will write you a report tomorrow.

If all does not go well, I regret not having known you better. The crew will get you safely to the next port.

Respectfully,

Surely, if you could narrow down what sort of thing you would find usefull then it would be much easier!
