Mission: Echoes of the Damned: Pilot Episode.

When Lt Mason walked into Beverly's ready room, Mike got yet another shot at the big seat. It was the second time in the day, and it seemed that his new promotion was rocking up to be less of a burden than he thought it would be.
He turned back to the command seat and took a few steps towards it and as he reached the seat he was ready for either Kristina, Beverly or Zhjaeve to walk onto the bridge. Again he was thinking "Waiting... Waiting... Waiting..."

He found himself looking over Podi's progress again. Mike was officially convinced that it was more uneventful than a room full of Admirals chatting about their lives on their postings drinking tea and eating... Mike shuddered about the thought of... cucumber sandwiches. As his little dream sequence ended, the turbolift doors parted, revealing Lt Zhjaeve. "Great." Mike thought to himself as he prepared himself to get off the chair, suspecting that the man wasn't just stopping by to be a pain in the backside.

Zhjaeve stepped down the ramp and made a beeline for the command chair. "Thank you Mr. Lake, you are relieved. Please retake your normal station."

Mike vaulted himself off the seat and onto the ground in a few milliseconds "Aye, sir." he then moved to the ops console and too his seat... it was time to review progress reports... again...
