DURONIS II — The USS Thunder-A ushered in new life as the crew began shore leave.
The USS Thunder (NCC-70605-A) returned to Duronis for shore leave and brought aboard a new crew member with her. Lieutenant Commander Kamela Allison, wife of current First Officer Lieutenant Commander Hannibal Tiberious Parker, gave birth in the Thunder‘s Ready Room as the ship was making orbit. The child, a boy, was named Ryland Arthur Parker in honor of Captain Ryland Parker, formerly of the USS Sitak killed during the Dominion War, and Arthur Allison, curator of the Starfleet Museum, lost during the Breen attack on San Francisco.
Mother and son are doing well, but the same cannot be said for the ready room doors which were somehow damaged as the First Officer tried to gain entry to be with his laboring wife.
“I’ve never seen anything like that… and he wasn’t even angry,” said Petty Officer Shayne Reynolds. “I’ve heard the First Officer was freaky strong but had never seen it…until now. No wonder his fighter callsign is Beast!”
The Thunder crew took to the beach for some well-deserved shore leave time where the crew put on an impromptu concert and fish fry. Several members of the crew, including Rear Admiral Toni Turner, took to the stage to display their musical talents and vocal abilities, which were well-received by the audience.
When asked by this reporter what is next in store for the Thunder crew, new father and First Officer Lt. Cmdr. Hannibal Tiberious Parker said, “Wherever they send us, we’ll be ready.”
