Jerry in Command, Docked for Repairs
Posted on Mon Sep 25th, 2017 @ 8:32pm by Commander Gerald Holmes
Is this thing on? *Tapping sounds.*
Oh, the solid red light means it's recording? Ok. Executive Officer's Log, Stardate: Whatever, I'm too tired to think right now.
*Snickering in the background.*
What's so damned funny? Haven't you heard a ship commander record a log before? I guess first order of business is to give Ensigns Parker and Hammond demerits for laughing during an official log recording. There's a reason you guys are assigned to the night shift...
Now as I was saying, we are docked for repairs which is currently underway. While here, Science Reports nothing on scanners, Tactical reports nothing on scanners. There is literally nothing going on. Yet the bridge still needs to be manned. The Captain is tucked away in his bed sleeping for the night. I'm waiting for the end of my double shift. One for CMO, the other for XO. I've caught up with my paperwork and there is nothing to do. We are just bored bored, bored.
*More laughter in the background.*
Dammit Parker, what I just say? Drop and give me 20.
*Counting in the background: 1 Sir, 2 Sir, 3 Sir...*
So to conclude this log, nothing is going on. It's the middle of the night. Hashtag BoredShift.
