SD 241805.?? || Joint Duty Log || "Making the Rounds"

Posted on Tue May 15th, 2018 @ 2:23am by Ensign Zihisa Zatyl & Lieutenant Commander Graham Petrov

Mission: Ab Antiquo
Location: Engineering

Zihisa was sitting at a console looking over some data for the replicators; both individual and industrial. She wasn't satisfied with the amount of waste of recycled equipment, food and just general things like that. Tapping a few buttons allowing her analytics program to run.

Lieutenant Commander Graham Petrov had only been on board the Artemis for a day, but he was making the rounds to try to get on top of things as much as possible. He had no idea when she would be shipping out again, and he didn't want to be caught unprepared!

Walking through engineering, he nodded to a few engineers that he'd already met and then saw a face he hadn't. Of course, he knew everyone from the personnel files he'd received and read on the way over here, but there was nothing like meeting face to face. He walked over and politely said, "Excuse me, Ensign. I just wanted to introduce myself. I'm the new chief engineer. Lieutenant Commander Graham Petrov."

"Ensign Zihisa Zatyl, material specialist." Zihisa said turning away from her work to greet her new department head.

"Good to meet you, Ensign Zatyl," he said with a polite smile. Then he gestured at the console. "What are you working on?"

"Making the replicators more efficient at material reclamation. Or at least to the standards that I was used to back in the Union." Zihisa said looking over the new data. Sighing as she looked over it, ".......guess it pays to be in a resource rich environment." She muttered realizing just how much material was being wasted from recycled items.

Graham nodded thoughtfully, unaware of her inner thoughts as he nodded. "It does, although the existence of the recycling systems at all is important. Not everything is wasted, some is recycled and re-purposed. And if we could up that percentage, then I'm certainly all for it."

"If I can get it even 3% more efficient that'll give us close to 5 months extra before needing resupply." Zihisa said looking back at her work.

"Keep me updated as to your progress, Ensign," he said with a small smile. "I'll be interested to hear any ideas you have about how we might achieve that." He glanced at the work on the console, then nodded approvingly. "How else is life on the Artemis? I've been speaking with each engineer I've met now, and everyone seems to have an interesting perspective."

"Consistency. I've only been here for a few months and this is my second chief." Zihisa said looking at her new chief.

Graham chuckled. "This posting came to me as something of a surprise too, but hopefully you won't be saying farewell too soon. Unfortunately, that can just be life in the Fleet sometimes."

Apparently Zihisa still had a lot to get used to within Starfleet truth be told chances where she would't get used to it. "If Starfleet personnel can achieve that and prove that then......" Zihisa said letting her last statement hang.

"Then what, Ensign?"

".......then I can do my job better or at least more efficiently." Zihisa said tapping a few more buttons pulling up some the analytics.

Graham offered a noncommercial noise and then nodded. "I look forward to your report. Good meeting you, Ensign Zatyl," he said, then excused himself to continue his acclimation to engineering.
