Pandora's Box 15&16 - "Required Services"

-={On}=- [Deck Six, Counselor's Office, USS Pegasus]

Andrew returned to his office. He guessed Caelen wanted to speak with him, but when Caelen got sidelined with Ryylar, Andrew left quickly. He was never one for meetings, always hated them. If Caelen wanted to speak with him, he would either come down to his office, or call him over the combadge to report to him.

Caelen just came from the Holodeck, noting that he had still fifteen minutes left before launch he thought it would be better to talk to the counselor first "Deck six" it was only one deck down so it took only mere seconds for him to decent. He walked towards the counselor's office and hit the chime, he could be in a meeting after all.

Andrew heard the chime. <Not wasting any time, I see. Five minutes after my return, and here he is.> "Enter", Andrew said, watching the door hiss open, and Caelen standing there. Andrew stood and saluted, waiting for Caelen to enter.

"As you were Ensign" Caelen walked further into the office "I like what you've done with the place" he joked a bit as the office was still a bit... barren. Then again it wasn't a big office and there was hardly room to place the couch.

Andrew sat. "Well, I thought of moving the couch 5 centimeters to the left, but then it'd be right up against te desk, and people could hit it with their feet, ruining the desk." He stated, returning the joke. "I'm guessing you're not here to talk about office aesthetics, however. How may I help you?"

"I wanted to thank you for the psychological profiles you made of the Hudorians..." Caelen nodded a bit as he walked to the couch and sat down "... unfortunately it was to late..." a small sigh "anyway, I need your services again"

"Certainly, gives me something to do other than use the holodeck for hours on end, come back here and play chess repeatedly. What do you wish for me to do?" Andrew placed his head on his hands, elbows resting on the desk.

Caelen leaned forward a bit "I need you to do what you did with those aliens... but then on the crew..." he knew that it was probably in conflict with some oaths but Caelen didn't need to worry about that " everybody in for Psychology reports, the ones in their profiles are hopelessly outdated and probably inaccurate by now..." he leaned back again resting his back against the back of the couch "...and I trust you more then those pencil pusher back in San Fran"

Andrew's eyebrow shot up - fast -. "Well...this is... different... I can do it, no problem, it's just different from other assignments I've had, here or back on Earth. Does the profiling include you? If so, I could probably do one right now, without even needing the interview." A sly smile formed on his face as he said this.

Caelen tilted his head slightly "with the Crew I meant everyone... just work your way down the Chain of Command" he stated "unfortunately I have to be at the bridge..." he stood up "...if you need anything, I hope you can still reach for your Combadge" he the put two finger of his right hand by his forehead in a saluting manner "...Good Luck Ensign..."

Andrew stood and saluted. "Very well sir, I'll get right on this. Starting with yours. Like I said, I should be able to do most, if not all, of the report without any further interviewing. Of course, if I have any holes, the combadge is my friend."

Caelen nodded and turned around walking out the office, he liked doing business with Andrew, it was always straight to the point, no nonsense. "Next stop... Earth..." he whispered to himself before getting into the lift.
