NAV Ens. Dimak O'Kar

Postby Riccardo Fabris » Fri Feb 21, 2014 1:38 pm

NAV Dimak O'Kar, Stardate 11402.20

Dimak's shift had ended, but there was no way that he would leave the station now. He had just spent the last few hours or so attempting to dodge cloaked Klingon ship and doing careful manoeuvres in order to both dodge the incoming fire from the Klingons aimed at both the Hyperion and the Ferengi vessel. The loss of the ship that they had meant to protect had weighed heavily on the Saurian Ensign and if he had had the capacity to sweat, he would have been sweating bullets by now. Dimak could feel that his energy was slightly sapping: the bridge didn't have natural lights switched on as standard, although some starships with higher counts of Reptilian officers were known to modulate their lights in order to keep Saurians, Gorns, Selay and other reptilians warm during long shift.

Along with sunlight, another thing that was missing was a cold, hard drink. Dimak usually went to the bar once his shift was over in order to get a pick-me-up, but it was clear that it wouldn't do to replicate some alcohol while he still manned his station. Dimak could have asked to be relieved from duty, but this was a unique opportunity to showcase his skills and resilience: losing an opportunity to control the Hyperion during a critical situation was not something that Dimak wanted to miss.

Although a lull in the fighting was currently present, the bridge was still in a state of chaos. Dimak was watching the coming and going passively, like it was a dream, a state probably caused by his lower-than-usual body temperature and the usual cool, collected attitude (some would say cold-blooded) that Dimak almost always seemed to have. Captain Brax, a man that Dimak had only met, was now in critical conditions, being tended by the medical team. Dimak wasn't sure how to feel about that: he had hardly had time to get attached to him, but losing their Commanding Officer on the very first mission did not bode well for the future. It was very fortunate that Captain Rome had been present to take over: the inexperienced crew needed someone with experience on the helm of the ship. Still, Dimak was itching for revenge: turning to Ensign Bontecou, Dimak gave the SCI a serpentine smile.

NAV Dimak O'Kar, Stardate 11303.23

This was the most exciting time that Dimak had had in a very, very long time. It was different when he was on the conn, working the console that controlled the beautiful, sleek Prometheus-class vessel. He had been born for this: not even the Saurian's latent alcoholism could prevent him from enjoying this moment. He would savour the moment like he savoured a nice, well-aged Saurian brandy, or a young, sparkling bottle of Earth Champagne.

Watching the Saurian's hands was a marvel: they were different from a Human's, more spindly, with tiny claws at the end. They seemed clumsy, almost like they were intended to kill small furry animals rather than be used as a means to manipulate tools, but when someone watched O'Kar and his hands sliding along the smooth surface of the console, it was like watching a virtuoso at work, playing his piano with an accustomed ease. In both cases, sound was produced, with crescendo's replaced by the increasing hum of the impulse engines, interjected by the sudden burst of thrusters as the ship turned and dodged around Klingons and asteroids alike.

It was a performance worth of a masterpiece, but no one seemed to be paying attention at O'Kar's theatrics, more intent on their own consoles as the Captain shouted orders around the bridge. O'Kar followed orders with gusto, first heading out away from the asteroid, then turning suddenly, dodging the coming fire and skimming towards one of the Vor'Cha cruisers that faced them, very nearly hitting the klingon ship and making the fire aimed at the Hyperion hit the Klingons instead. The Saurian grinned, his usual devilish smile: sometimes you didn't even need weapons to damage an enemy ship.

Soon the away team had been picked up and the Hyperion was run once again, following the nav buoys out at full impulse. O'Kar, concentrating, avoided the rapidly shifting asteroids, finally exiting the asteroid field with the Tkon ship in tow. The Hyperion shot past the Bird of Prey that it had previously rigged with explosives and the Klingon-crewed Tkon ship fell right into the trap.

It was then that O'Kar heard the orders that he had awaited for: the Hyperion would enter MVAM for the very first time against opponents. O'Kar had prepared for this moment for his entire life and now, as the ship split apart, he finally could experience the most exhilarating experience that any NAV officer in Star Fleet could find.
