Adama looked thoughtful at the question about gear, then shook his head in the negative. "No, Sir. We're running light, but here's your in-briefing packet." Adama passes over a
thick sheaf of papers
|This basically covers everything covered in the 'Meleager Marine Complement & Equipment', 'Meleager Crew & Equipment Complement', and '24th Viper Training Squadron' threads of the Background thread-group; it also conveys the same information as the NPC Bios for SSgt. Burke, Sgt. Adama, Cpl. Crane, the Skipper (Major Deering), the XO, and the CAG, plus pictures and names for anyone PO1 or above on the ship, including the Nuggets (since they were technically--just--officers, albeit only the two CLt. "equal" to Fuller). |
, which he attaches to a clipboard holding a slightly-battered set of papers...the report on the accident three months ago. "This should cover any questions you have about us, Old Mel
, or the Squadron, Sir. Sorry it took so long to hand to you, but it slipped my mind with the 'excitement'." Adama sounds embarrassed, but his tone leveled back to professional--but warm--neutrality as he switched subjects. "As for Green, Sir, that is you, Staff Sergeant Burke, myself, and Corporal Crane. We are supposed to have four more Medics, but they can either be with Green or paired off with the four
Sergeants--leading Sections--we are supposed to have. So half of Green is us, Sir, another fourth is Staff stuck on the shuttle, and the last fourth is Corporal Crane." Adama then waited until addressed again.
Adama nodded to Fuller. "Yessir. I'll take care of it. Corporal Aramaki-" Adama motioned the man over. "-and his squad will take care of any questions or issues you have, Sir." Adama jogged off towards the shuttle.
Goshan smiled--it had a slightly 'dreamy' air to it, but she was clearly tracking...at least mostly
--and nodded. "No problem, Sir." She nods as both Petras and Lawrence--sprinting across the Hangar to their Chief's summons--skid to a stop in front of her and the Lieutenant. "Petras, Lawrence, this is the M-C-O, Lieutenant Fuller. Give him the full
courtesy he's do until he
says otherwise. Lawrence, Chief, has you playing waitress for the food distribution when it gets hear; you know what to do. Petras, you get to play Marine; you're back-stopping the MAs and
the Marines, and you're under Lieutenant Fuller's authority in doing so." Both nodded, and Lawrence wheeled sharply back around, gathered his section's attention with a sharp tonal whistle, and then hand-signed them to rally around the door nearest the kitchen. They complied as Lawrence took off jogging.
Petras, meanwhile, turned to Fuller with a polite expression while standing at Parade Rest. "What do you need from us, Sir?"
Goshan moved to stand a half-step behind Fuller's left-shoulder (Adama usually had the right). "The shuttle is delayed on the Deck, Sir, do to the Deck-Launch. It'll be a couple more minutes before they arrive."
Corporal Clarence started herding Aurora towards the troop bay, but then heard Adama's voice over her wireless. She motioned her squad to continue onward--Marine Country was only a short ways from the Hangar--and turned back around, quickly jogging over to 2Lt. Stryker. Saluting him, she waited for his return salute before speaking...despite her lack of use for protocol once bullets started flying. "Sir, Lieutenant Fuller's complements, but would you mind joining myself and my squad? We can get you a shower, a proper uniform, battle rattle, someplace to stash that over-grown attaché case--not like it's important since the war is on--and a bunk." Corporal Clarence leaned closer, hoping the right vibe carried over. She was trying for 'In Confidence', but she knew her cold bearing and palpable aura of anger made it hard to read her attitude correctly. "Also, my squad and I have the guard duty on Aurora, and I think she would find your presence comforting." Clarence leaned back out and waited, face impassive (although everyone swore she looked pissed-off, but she always
looked pissed-off, it was just how life had built her) as she awaited his response.
