Subj: Advanced Leave of Absence Request


I have received some news from my sister on Earth and request an early extension to my leave of absence at this time.

My brother has been injured in a shuttle crash, he’s expected to be fine, but likely facing long term injuries.

Boston might as well be next to San Francisco with the planetary transport grid so I won’t miss the induction ceremonies and I’m happy to take this from my shore leave entitlement.

While this does limit the time left for a handover, I have every confidence in Lieutenant Commander Loxton’s ability to step into my role until a permanent replacement has been chosen.

I wish to thank you again for the opportunities and will continue to represent the values instilled from Deep Space 13 back through the academy and beyond.

Lieutenant Commander Kara Blake
Security Officer,
Deep Space 13
