Operation: Peace or P'Jem
Location: USS Standing Bear | Morpheus Shuttle
Soral had been the first to arrive. He took his place in the pilots seat and sat down going through the pre-flight checks. All the defenses he could think of had been installed and now he waited for Vali and Mac to join him.
T’Lanna arrived at the shuttle bay uncertain what sort of reception she was going to get, walking inside the shuttle she offered Soral a polite nod. “Commander”
"Hello Lieutenant. Are you ready for the trip." He motioned for her to take the co-pilot's seat.
T’Lanna nodded. “I’m more than ready, but I get the impression that perhaps you weren’t very happy about it. You looked annoyed at the staff meeting, unless I read your body language incorrectly?”
"I have much on my mind as of late. It has been a difficult time. It is getting harder to control my emotions." He looked at her. "It was nothing against you."
T’Lanna nodded. “Thank you Soral, that was all I needed to hear” she offered a brief smile. “I must admit I’m not looking forward to being aboard the shuttle with Mac.”
"I think he feels the same as well. Do not take his anger personally he is worried about his mate. He is afraid and uncertain and it difficult for him to process things. He is not the most emotional of men yet he has been as of late since the bond especially."
“I may not have my senses, but I know anger and rage when I see it. I’m not afraid of him taking it out on me, I deserve it.” She took the co-pilots seat, making herself comfortable.
"He is all bark, as humans say. I believe it has more to do with him then it does you."
T’Lanna nodded, and offered an appreciative smile. “Then you’ll have to pardon me if I decide call his bluff.”
"I..." before he could say anything the footfalls could be heard on the ramp.
Mac hurried up into the shuttle and tossed his bag to the side hitting the wall. "Reporting as ordered Sir." He said to Soral.
Soral sighed. He lowered his head and closed his eyes a moment. "Take your seat Lieutenant."
T'Lanna didn't look, she remained eyes forward.
Mac sat down at tactical thankful that it was closer to Soral. "Tactical enhancements have been installed and checked."
"Good," Soral said. "Bring them online. T'Lanna can you work the coms?"
"Yes Sir" T'Lanna nodded.
"Hail the bridge and let Captain Stillwater know that we're ready to depart."
T’Lanna nodded, and opened up the comms. “Vali to bridge, we’re ready to depart Captain.”
Captain Stillwater sat on the bridge of the starship Standing Bear, tense from the situation. The Andorians could be out there. Only time would tell. "Stillwater here. God speed, the both of you. Disembark."
Soral gave a nod. "Alright guys. Let's go." He turned to Mac. "This is a mission, whatever you feel, whatever you think put it behind you. You're our security."
Mac gave a nod.
He sighed. "Morpheus, heading out sir. We'll see you when we get back."
