STARBASE 11 — After escaping the subspace energy-draining creature in the Betreka Nebula, the crew of the USS Constitution-B made their way to Starbase 11 for some well-needed and well-deserved rest and relaxation.
On their way to the starbase, a memorial service was held for their lost crewmate Senior Chief Petty Officer Riyao. To lighten the mood, Captain Jalana Rajel distributed several ribbons. One officer, Ensign Solaris McLaren also received the honor of being promoted to the rank of lieutenant junior grade as well as to the post of chief intelligence officer.
Some crew members built deeper relationships with each other, realizing how quickly their lives could be taken away. Others created new relationships as the crew mingled on shore leave. Starbase 11 offers a wide range of stores, restaurants, and activities, so the crew had plenty to distract themselves with while the Constitution was being repaired.
Even the captain and the first officer made it a point to get off of the ship during leave. According to an anonymous source, Rajel was seen spending time with Lieutenant JG Jermone Milsap on the starbase.
“I think it’s good for her to socialize like that. She’s the captain, but she still needs to have a life too!” shared Ensign Mary Noes.
Unfortunately for Rajel, however, shore leave was cut short as she received the news that her father, a Trill Ambassador, was being treated for a currently unknown health condition. FNS is working to learn more but has confirmed that the ambassador was rushed to hospital.
Before leaving the ship, Rajel handed control of the vessel and her crew to the Constitution’s first officer, Lieutenant Commander T’Mar. This is T’Mar’s first time commanding a starship, but there is currently no reason to believe there will be any issues.
The Constitution is currently preparing to run supplies to a Federation colony before returning to Starbase 11. It seems that T’Mar’s first mission should be a relatively simple one.
