Mission: Human Nature. Season 1; Episode 6
Location: Marine CO Office

David hadn't been back at his desk long when a message came in from Toombs: Vortag was free to meet him about the holoprogramme in a few minutes. He didn't have to wait long before the Klingon Master-at-Arms arrived in the office.

If there was one thing Vartog really enjoyed doing, it was mucking about with holoprogramming. It was not a particularly Klingon pursuit – there was no glory to be found in it which was why he was currently seconded to the Federation serving on SB 611 – but it was a fulfilling one. Therefore, the call from the marines showed promise of exciting times ahead...and it could not have come at a better time. That was enough for him to be now standing stiffly at attention in front of the marine commander.

“I’m about to go on leave, Sir, but that will give me time to work on an exacting program. I have some ideas which I’d like to explore but I’ll need input from my family’s workshops. As it happens, I’ll be spending a week there and your request will give me the perfect opportunity to dodge my grandparents annoying questions like: Why haven’t you been promoted yet? and Why are you still on that Federation starbase? Why aren’t you on a fine Klingon ship? and Where’s the honour in being a master-at-arms? You should be the captain of your own ship by now. So you’re doing me a favour.

“As to the specifics of your request, I have some programs that should suffice until I return. They’re mainly hand-to-hand combat but they’ll get your people fit and well conditioned. I’ll give you the password to access and adapt them to the specifications for standard Marine simulations. Believe me, if my ideas come to fruition, they’ll need it."

David smiled lightly. "Thank you. I'll give you access to all the Marine combat simulations for you to have a look at. I look forward to the programme you come up with."
