Mission: Prelude: Ship Shape
Location: Bridge
Timeline: 2161

I took a deep breath as the turbolift doors opened onto the Bridge. Captain Dimlac politely nodded to me and Ensign Capp, then went back to speaking with Security Officer Terra. ensign Capp gave me a smile, and walked over to his station. I smiled back, and walked to the communication console. After inserting the white and blue earpiece into my left ear, I familiarized myself with the layout of the Communications console. I was so nervesited! I was nerves because it was a new assignment, and I was excited because I had never been to Kaminar before, I had new crewmates, and we were on a Constitution Class Starship!

"Ensign Powers, status report," Captain Dimlac asked.

"All systems are functioning at optimal levels, Sir," I answered, mentally swatting away the cobwebs. He nodded, and ordered the Helmsman to take us out of the Starbase. I gripped the armrests of my chair and tried to quiet the 'first flight butterflies' fluttering around in my stomach. No matter how many times I went into space, the first launch always sent a thrill through me. I watched the viewscreen start to blur as we cleared the Starbase and jumped to warp.
