Mission: Battle Front. Season 2, Episode 2
Location: Counselor's Office

"King to Lam"

"I'm sorry counselor I'm a little busy right now, I'll need to call you back in a bit" replied Lam, sounding slightly rushed and more than a little harried before the comm link closed. There was much work to be done after the Borg incident, the station had taken moderate damage due to the combined disruptor fire and the rogue Species 8472 that briefly stalked the corridors of the station. The power reactor was stable, the weapons and defences were shown to be in dire need of an upgrade and the support ships, well most them made their way to nearby Starbases as Lam's engineers had their hands full repairing the station let alone providing support for others.

"I want to see you in my office in one hour," said Deanna. "Have your assistant fill in for you until you get back." Deanna said this sternly.

Lam stopped, 'excuse me but the hell' she thought, "I'm sorry Lieutenant" her emphasis on her rank very strong, "I'm in the middle of something, I can't just drop what I'm doing and leave on a whim, if you want to talk feel free to come down here."

Deanna kept her calm. She was used to uncompliance officers in her field. "Now Commander," said Deanna, "You will be making way to my office. "You have three choices; in an hour, now or be relieved of duty until you comply." She hated being hard on the officers, but sometimes she had to do that.

'Who the hell does this upstart counselor think she is' though Lam, the anger and rage at a junior officer telling her what to do building inside her, the other officers in the crawl space now looking at her as he voice began to rise in volume, "these repairs will take at least two hours to complete, if you can't deal with that then you best come down here and relieve me!" 'perhaps she could finish the repairs, oh wait a minute she probably knows jack about Cardassian Fusion Generator technology, doctors they're all the same'.

"Two hours, my office or be relieved of duty," said Deanna. "Outside of the CMO, and commanding officer, I am the only other person whom can relieve you of duty."

"I am aware of the powers invested in you Lieutenant, now unless you have anything else to add I need to make sure the station doesn't blow itself to pieces." Lam knew King would think she was exaggerating but for once it was the truth as one of the reactors was becoming slightly unstable, if they could correct it they'd have to shut it down or worse yet lose one of the six reactors, a major blow to the stations power requirements.
