Madden just looked at his new assignment, staring into the bottomless abyss that was and forever will be a dead end desk job. It was hard to believe that not two weeks ago, he was a field operative involved in combat missions near the... well that was classified.

He waited for docking clearance as he looked at the floating crap heap. The reason for his "transfer" was still ringing in his head... "In a five years time you'll be a better field operative than me," said his CO. "A superior weapon, and a weaker Starfleet Officer. This is something I can't allow on my team. Your being reassigned."

And in a sense it was true. His reasons for joining Starfleet were quite simply to travel to exotic, distant planets, meet exciting, unusual aliens, and kill them.

With the best of intentions, but that was not enough. So here he was awaiting his new dull life, and all the joy that life would bring...

"Stix you are cleared for docking in Shuttle Bay 2. Welcome aboard."
