"Fun With Transporting"

The meeting had ended and everyone had rushed out to meet the CO's rather hurried time line.  Well almost everyone, the red headed Engineer showed no signs of being in any kind of rush.

"Good morning Lieutenant," the ship's Avatar said as she approached the CEO. "All crafts have been readied for the mission. The modifications you had requested for the VIPERs, SPHINX and LOCUS were all completed as of 0400," the android reported.

"Perfect, thank you ANI," the redhead offered with a grin. "Only one last thing to do. Initiate emergency protocol Paquette-1."

"Have a safe journey," the Avatar stated almost smiling before adding a few final words. "Initializing protocol."

The Chief Engineering Officer vanished from the Bridge in the customary shimmering lights of a transporter beam.

Sonja had created several emergency protocols to help her deal with countless potential problems.  Being able to be in Main Engineering at a moment's notice had been deemed to be the most important. Although this had not truly been an emergency, the CEO had figured that this had been a perfect opportunity to test the first of her protocols.

As the redhead materialized right next to the Engineering Control Island, the rest of the staff on duty seemed not at all surprised by the unannounced arrival.

Over the last few days the Engineering staff had come to expect the unexpected from their Department Head. Sonja had easily come across as someone who always got the job done.

A quick scan of the control panel showed Sonja that everything had been as it needed to be. So without hesitation she reached beneath the island for her Engineering Field Kit before tapping her communicator.

"Computer, initiate site-to-site transport from this location to deck 29, SPHINX launch bay. Authorization Paquette Charlie-Echo-Oscar-zero-one."

Sonja materialized without any difficulties where she had wanted to be, right next to the SPHINX.  With a few minutes now at her disposal,  the red haired engineer boarded the craft to perform a few last minute checks.

After all, their Captain had shown an affinity for testing them when they least expected it and Sonja had hoped for a quiet trip down to the moon's surface.

Next stop: the moon of PI ALPHA III.
