Personal Log - Stardate 69876.054

Well, the time has come. I arrived on the Devonshire yesterday, reported to the Captain which is a Commodore, and will soon report to the Bridge for Helm duty.

My understanding is that we will be launching at 1700, which isn't too far from now, about 95 minutes.

I have just come from the holodeck where I went through a couple scenarios where I was able to get a better feel for this vessel and how the computer is expecting it to handle. I found it quite . . stimulating. I even made some simple Helm console alterations. I find them more 'usable' that way and saved them to be pulled up on the Bridge when I arrive soon.

I thought my meeting with our distinguished Commodore went well. He, of course, was rather busy with getting everything ready. My understanding is that the launch time was moved up, which has limited the loading of needed supplies.

'Chuckle'. At the officer's meeting there were a lot of suggestions on how to get more of the equipment and supplies loaded in the allotted time. I'm not sure why, but I found it humorous. They were all trying so hard. I suppose, if I was in their position of responsibility, I would be wanting to do the same.

But for now . . I'm a Helmsman and I will focus on my taste of maneuvering this vessel the best I can at 'their' leadership.

I have just enough time to put on a fresh uniform and get to the Bridge.
