Lieutenant Commander's Log,
For the past few days, ever since I made my request to take the command test.. He's--He's everywhere. Commander Austin has made several attempts at inducing a state of panic in time of rest. Luckily for me, my species doesn't require sleep like other species do. The alarms are obnoxious at best, irritating at worst. I feel sorry for those who share the same hallway as I do- let alone the same deck. In terms of the physical aspects of the Commander's drills, I'm more than capable of exceeding his expectations, however he doesn't seem to recognize this fact. As I stated to Captain Alistair Nimitz the day prior, the technicalities and technological know-how was more my brother's area. Practicality is my strong suit, though I don't see it above the Commander to use these facts against me on the test. From my interactions, I believe Commander Austin will attempt to give me a no-win scenario- a technical no-win scenario, however i cannot be sure. Captain Nimitz has granted me insight into what the command tests may bring-- what the tests may be composed of. Through his accounts of his test, and prior publicized accounts, the test rarely consist to judge you morally, and only seek to figure out if an officer is capable of making the "hard decisions" and problem solving with the utmost efficiency, to which I will take advantage of. I will attempts to keep this updated.
