SUBJECT:Change of Engineering.
Fellow officers of the 38th fleet,
As of stardate 91348.2 I have been made the Chief Engineer of Deep Space 13. I know this is not a simple task to take up, I would like to thank Captain Altais for his stellar work at keeping the work up within the department. With his promotion there came a vacancy and our Commanding Officer has chosen me to fill the spot. Now while my time with you has been short, I like to think I have friends already. All of the personnel attached to this fleet have shown me a home far from my comfort zone and everyday I feel more in place.
With the formalities out of place, it is time we go on to our first action. As the Iconian threat is getting larger and larger so will the demands of our facilities. Yet, there is no time to panic and I wish to continue everything in an orderly fashion. My request is as follows.
To all Starship Commanding Officers:
This is a hard time for you, that is perfectly understandable. Many of you have damaged ships and have lost friends close to you, but I can not do wonders. What I can do however is repair your ships to the best of our abilities and so I request you reply to this message with a full damage report of your vessel. This way I can prioritize and the teams are able to work on critical tasks first. Do not worry however, you will all get your turn in due time.
To the members of the Engineering Department:
My name is Rix Brot'la. Many of you I have not met yet, but I hope that you will not mind my influence within the department as of now. If you have anything to discuss, feel free to drop by my office or find me on the floor. Better yet, I will be most likely found on the floor helping you all out. If you ever have any problem, my door is open. Literally, as I still have to fix it from bumping it with a hydro-spanner.
To the Deep Space 13 officers:
I hope to see you all soon during work we do. As with my own department, you are welcome to drop by and scold me for not fixing your replicators whenever you like.
With that out of the way, everyone has been doing stellar jobs at keeping the facility run. I would like to thank you all for that. As a personal note of thankfullness I have made a deal with Swifty. This entire friday, all drinks are on myself. I suggest you make use of it.
Thank you all for listening and be safe,
Commander R. Brot'la
