On My Own Now

Captain's Log, Stardate 2263.233-
This is my first official log entry as the Commanding Officer of the Defiant. That has a nice ring to it, but I can't say that I've gotten used to it yet.
Today, I'm on my own as captain of this vessel for the first time. Captain James and the Artemis are departing in just a few hours, so I don't have that crutch to lean on anymore. I'm not entirely sure why I'm so nervous. It isn't as though its my first command, but it certainly feels that way. Part of it is that I've never assumed command of someone else's ship. I'd been aboard the Zheng He for over a year before I was made commanding officer. I've been here barely 3 days.
However, the crew has been respectful and welcoming. I only hope I can live up to their expectations.
