Bored

Mission: Ties To Blood: Season 1, Episode 3.
Location: Crew's quarters

Endrijure stood disconsolately at his post. S/he was bored. Granted, boredom came easily to hir but surely Security should offer more than this!

S/he lead a team of four which had been posted to guard a small mess hall attached to crew quarters. More precisely, they were to guard the bank of replicators.

A crewwoman stood in front of a Jeffries Tube access point. S/he’d thought about putting her inside but s/he’d figured that they’d be safer with the access closed. If she was jumped by the captain while inside the tube she might not be able to warn them. Communications were random at best with the computers still malfunctioning so she might not be able to get a message off. Better to keep her on this side of the tube so that they could watch out for each other.

Similary with the corporal stationed just inside the door. That left Endrijure and the other crewman. They’d taken up positions at either side of the replicators where they had a clean field of fire, covering the whole of the small room between them.

Not that anything had happened and, Endrijure was coming to believe, nothing was going to happen either – not here, anyway. S/he’d heard some story about using sprays or some such to bring the captain under control. Surely they could find a better delivery system on a station this size. Why not just a good, old fashioned tranquilizer gun? S/he failed to believe that there wasn’t something of the sort around somewhere. Not that it was hish decision – s/he was just a lowly petty officer – but there were some good minds here from what s/he’d seen.

Time ticked over slowly and Endrijure grew more and more bored.
