Some big changes

Captain's Log, Stardate 2263.231-
I've been aboard Defiant for about a day now, and I think the new command is starting to sink in. Out of respect for Captain James, I've kept myself out of the picture for the moment. He's been preparing a few of his senior staff for the changes, and preparing himself.
I, meanwhile, have kept myself entertained by exploring the ship without the attention my rank stripes would usually earn. I've taken the opportunity to drop in on a few of my new senior officers. It should make for an entertaining interaction once we have the full staff meeting. But they seem like a good crew. Each has their personality quirks, their baggage, their hopes, fears, dreams. It makes it easier to accept this new crew by seeing them as individuals, as other people who are also in this same situation.
I also certainly won't mind getting the Captain's Quarters. After a brief meeting with Captain James there, I can confirm that the quarters are at least twice the size of those I had on the Zheng He. I'm a little worried I might have fueled a rumor that the captain is emotionally involved with his engineer, given our relatively similar heights and her usual hair color.
I intend to meet with the CMO and the Exchange CDO. Those two have had some legal struggles as of late. I haven't decided yet if I want to get a feel for them before I show up in uniform, or if I should just go in authoritatively. I'll have to mull that over.
Other than that, I guess we'll see where this takes us. The senior staff meeting in a day or so should clear things up. I just hope the crew takes it the right way.
