Celebration

"I can't believe I'm now Chief Engineer!" Jane said as they exited the Captain's Office.

She turned to Deux. "This calls for some sort of celebration, surely?" She didn't even wait for him to answer, instead steered them both towards a turbolift.
"Starboard Nine" she commanded to the computer. "I've not been to the ship's bar yet, but this is a good opportunity!"

The lift took a few seconds, where they chatted about their new roles, and when they arrived at their destination, stepped out into a lively bar.

"Wow I didn't expect it to be so busy" she said. "Haven't people got work to do?" then she paused. "Oh my gosh, I'm talking like a boss already, aren't I? Is this the trouble with a command position?!"

They stood at the bar and got drinks. "So, I don't want to be morbid. But there's a chance we'll be stuck in this galaxy, far from home for our entire lives. What is it you'll miss from home?" She asked.
