The bridge

Captain Cusworth took a deep breath, and nervously stepped onto the bridge where her crew were waiting for her.

They all grinned and nodded at her in welcome.

Carly had a speech all prepared. She was about to launch into it, when the Communications officer quickly said. "Captain, there's a priority 1 communication from Admiral Johnson. He wants to talk to you in private."

"Any chance it can wait?"

"No sir. I mean ma'am. I mean Captain." the officer stumbled over her words.

"Thanks Ensign" said Carly. "I'll take it in my office."

She stepped quickly into the office, and as the door slid closed, she sighed. The speech would have to wait until later.
