Setting: USS ANUBIS, Bridge
Stardate: 31199.0900

With the focus of their current mission squarely resting on the USS BASTET and her crew, the atmosphere onboard the ANUBIS had been rather relaxed. Yes the vessel and its crew had to keep an eye on their sister ship while at the same time making sure that nothing unexpected would get in their way, but given the secret nature of the mission and the fact that neither ship could be detected, the task at hand had been an all too easy one.

"ETA to the GAMMA ERADI Cluster is 7 1/2 hours, or 450 minutes, give or take a few" Jayson said, trying to keep himself busy at the Operations station.

"If you are trying to be precise," ANI, the ANUBIS' humanoid avatar began as only the unique artificial being could, "you could say that our ETA is 27,000 seconds, give or take a few hundred."

"I think Ensign Stark is just bored," Sonja chuckled as she walked up to ANI. "Tracking and following one of our ships, even if it is cloaked, is not exactly a high energy task.  Still, my bet stands, he'll be the first to fall asleep," Sonja added as she pointed to the OPS officer.

"Fall sleep?" Shar'El repeated from the ExO's chair as she looked at the redhead standing next to the ship's Avatar.

"Alright. Fine. Mildly dose off for a split second," Sonja corrected in mock annoyance. "Is that better? More politically acceptable?"

Jayson sighed and remained perfectly silent, having learned over several occurrences to never go up against the Chief Engineer in any sort of verbal contest.

"I think this might prove to be our most demanding mission yet," the Captain chuckled before shaking his head in disbelief.

"Let me see what I can do about that," the ExO / ILO whispered to her CO before she stood from her chair.  "Commander Maya, Lieutenant Paquette, please join me in the observation lounge. I have a couple of ideas that you two ladies could help with."

"Are we in trouble?" Maya quietly gulped as Sonja walked passed next to her.

"Nah," the redheaded Engineer shrugged. "If we were really in trouble Shar'El would have asked Ya'Han to be there as well so that she could properly whip our collective afts.  I think it's Jayson that should be worried. Who knows what they'll come up with to keep him from falling asleep so that I can win my bet with ANI."
