Nightwolf, The journey continues
Sasha was walking the corridor of the ship as she was on her way to meet the new Grease Monkey-Engineer. She hoped he knew everything that has to with being an excellent engineer. She
was in the shuttle bay looking for the new Grease monkey.
she looked around as other visitors were settling in.
David walked in from the engine room area as he noticed the captain. "I heard you wanted to see me ma'am?" David asked calmly to her.
Sasha smiled."Yes i wanted to meet you, our new grease monkey." Sasha told David, "Welcome aboard the Nightwolf."
"just keep her running while we are in cruising in space." Sasha
"I don't believe that will be an issue." David said with a smile.
Sasha smiled back."Thats what i like to hear from a new grease Monkey." she said padding his shoulder with her right hand.
"I'm glad you will make me a happy colonel with what you said."
Sasha also said.
"Colonel ??" David said quickly lost for words now. As he tried to refocus. "Is there anything that you are concerned about in engineering? Captain??"
David asked calmly to her. As he heard the jukebox started playing Saturday Night Fever. "I am liking the ship already."
Sasha laid her arm and hand on David's one shoulder."Not
now that ive got you under the engine's controls."Sasha smiled at
David." Now will you excuse me, im headed towards the front, and Im gonna see up in the cockpit." Sasha smiled to him as she left for the cock pit.
"I will meet you there!" as he calmly placed his tool belt on the empty clean work bench as he headed off towards the bridge cockpit area. "I am here as ordered captain.!" David said with a beaming smile. "Wow!" He said in awe of the design of the ship. "pinch me is this really happening?"
Sasha chuckled."David you are here, and you don't need to be pinched." Sasha smiled." David this firefly class ship is a bit bigger
than the first firefly ship, Serenity. They just wanted to see how a bigger version of a firefly type ship would be and i got to name it
Nightwolf." Sasha told David with a smile while patting David on his right shoulder.
"darn... " David said with a smile. "I thought someone would have jumped for the opportunity to pinch?" David sighed. "Oh Well!" "How new is she?" David asked. "I thought she was bigger than the original of the class. but was not totally sure without taking a tape measure." He smiled politely.
Sasha looked at David and chuckled."Sorry no pinching aloud"
she said with a smile. "Nightwolf is not quite that new, I had her a few years." Sasha smiled. "As for inches, I guess about 5-10 feet bigger. I should re-measure Nightwolf, its been a while." Sasha said looking around inside her ship Nightwolf."
"Darn," David said with a small laugh. As he listened to the captain then he responded. "Do you think you lost a few inches or more from the ship?" I would think that would be obvious to see or notice without tape measuring. As a broad smile was now on his face. Knowing he was truly joking.
Sasha smiled at David."I don't think ships lose a few inches." she said with a chuckle. Maybe you can help me measure Nightwolf, so we can get the actual score."Sasha smiled.
"Sure why not I don't have anything to do at present unless someone broke something in their quarters I am not aware of." David said with a small smile.
Sasha looked at him, well when we are in space, we can only measure the inside, and when we land on a planet then we can measure the outside." Sasha smiled."But for now, we will do that later. So now I must leave you for the cockpit and take over flying The Nightwolf." Sasha smiled as she was starting to leave for the cockpit.
"As you wish captain!" David said calmly. "Shall we get started then." As he grabbed a tape measure and started to measure the cockpit first so they would be out of the ways as the other cabins and other odd rooms by himself since he was busy with measuring things while they were dealing with travel through space.
