Subject: John's POV..........

Stardate 0365.02.07
USS Peregrine, holodeck - 0810

The two junior offices entered the holodecks control space, Karri entered her sim request.
"Caitia prime D'katharr Forrest early spring, non poisonous Flora only, mid level animal ambiance." Karri smirks at john. "Don't want you stumbling into something an dying."

A dubious smile crossed John's face, "Oh I appreciate that..really I do!"

The inner portal door whooshed open on a steamy lush tropical jungle. As the warm humid air hit him John felt Karri grab his hand to nearly drag him into the forest. It seemed obvious to John that Karri may have felt a bit of an outsider with so many humans among the crew. Now it was a thrill to be the one on familiar ground. He was really glad that he was the one with whom she was comfortable sharing.

As they walked John could understand better the instinctive actions of the Caitian woman. An environment like this required a survival skill to get through every day. Admiring the vines hanging from the trees he was caught off guard when the plant wrapped his ankle and whisked up off the ground. "Whoooo Nellie," John laughed as he flew up the tree.

Fishing into pocket he pull a pocket knife, he'd carried one ever since he'd passed his Toten-Chip as a Tenderfoot Scout. Opening the folding blade he bent up slice the vine from his leg.

"STOP!" Karri yelled. "the vines are filled with acidic sap! ... its not poisonous but it'll still hurt you..."
"Oh yeah,wel I think you sorta left out."
Down below he watched Karri grab a cat-tailish looking plant an pulling it from the ground rolled in in the leaves crushing it to make it weep a dark red sticky sap. With feline grace she scaled the tree dropping the bulb into the pitcher and gave the pitcher a swift kick.
"Get ready to land!"

"Thanks for the warning,.. This time," John laughed.

The vines relaxes and John drops to the ground.
Karri jumps down and helps John to his feet. With a bit of a twinkle in those blue eyes and brushing the dirt and leaves off of John's back and shoulders,"Welcome to Caite, you've been initiated."

There was strength and tenderness in Karri's tough. There is something comforting in tactile contact.
"You feel up to light sparring?"

"Oh sure..that wasn't nearly enough exercise," he laughed.

"Computer Caitian light training grounds, light training clothes" (the forest fades an large exspanse of stubble grassland appears with semblance of a boxing gym an archery dummies sprawl across the room.)

Karri's clothes shift into a half halter top woven out of green leaves and a long loin cloth that formed to her and enhanced her muscular yet feminine form.

Karri grinned as she walked over to a pile of weapons picking up a several small Caitian blades and a Chakram.
The Chakran was circular double bladed weapon with the grip in the middle.
Using her tail Karri curled it around the Chakram's handle. The lithe female did several stretches and cart wheels, talking all the while.
"This is our basic training most Caitian youths begin training in their 8th summer males an females."
Karri did a one handed cartwheel.
"Only one in thirty Caitian warriors are able to tail wield the Chakram."
Karri landed next to a cream striped melon headed training dummy flicking her tail. For a moment nothing seemed to happen then the mellon slowly slid apart with a dark blue ooze seeping from the cut.
"I'm only the third female know to be able to wield it."
Karri caught the top half of the melon drawing a cutting blade from her hip she sliced the melon into several large pieces.

John was impressed.

"I'm told it tastes akin to human's water melon, there's only few seeds try not to eat them. They're not poisonous but they can cause strong flatulence. OH!"
Karri quickly handed the fruit to john.

"Computer one plate of two nitro thallon ants an several Sonta grubs. an two large ice waters." (a plate appears with two massive evil looking ants an several large cream an white speckled grubs)

Karri pulled a second dagger an expertly baited the ants to bit the dagger using her claws to quickly squeeze the ants which sprayed a hissing liquid onto the grubs seeming to freeze them. quickly waving John over she motioned for him to hold a piece of fruit beneath the grub which she pressed with the dagger blade spooling out a mouse like whipped cream substance from the grub.

Johns' felt his hands trembling slightly as he watched.

"Its ok, its tastes like whipped cream. But that one can be mine, you can have yours plane." Karri purred softly licking her fingers off.

Smiling, "Oh.. ok.. sure, the way things have gone so far,", he just let it trail off as Karri laughed at him.

As they eat the fruit they continued about the comparisons between earth and Caitian homeworlds.

Place the remains on the ground the Caitian invited him to spar for a bit. They each were going easy on the other, accessing the others skill levels in comparison to the other. Seemingly in turns they tossed each other to the dirt till they were both covered in a fine coating dust. Sitting beside one another catching their breaths and drinking the last of their ice waters, karri giggled looking at John.

"You look like a mud pie," poking him lightly where a trickle of sweat had congealed into a muddy streak. Then looking down at herself, her fur tinged a light reddish brown and matted in places. Karri laughed at herself.

"I look a right mess myself. I look like a kitt after falling in a mudwallow."

Rising to his feet John reached down to help Karri up too. "I haven't had such an enjoyable time and laughed so much in a long time. It has been work, study ..repeat, seeming endlessly since graduating. "Karri rose up and stood close John; once again he felt himself swimming it those fascinating blue eyes.

After a moment he said, "Next time we visit Earth, we don't have man eating plants but I hope you'll find it as beautiful as I do."

He found he was still holding her shoulders.

USS Peregrine. Mess hall. 0550hrs.

"My plans? ...humm. Nothing really important. I was going to see if the holodeck was open. go for a training scenario or run, an just blow off a little stream."

John barely noticed Karri's tail as it flicked. Karri smiled sweetly; her fangs poking from beneath her lips giving her a impish look.

"Though having just ate such a large meal sitting here a while, works for now?"

The two sat, having finished their meals, engaging in ideal chitchat, mostly referring to the relative inaction on this assignment.

"I've spent most of my time getting to know this ship. I have to understand the Peregrine's strength, but mostly her weakness to keep her safe,." Glancing around the room, " The safety of the crew is in my hands" then quickly adding,"and others." Looking back to Karri and getting caught up again in her deep blue eyes, "I haven't gotten to know the crew, but I must admit from the first day I saw you, well.. you are so different, but there is something so the same." John blushed a bit, "Sorry,. How about we go to the holodeck and take me on walk of Caitia?"

Eyeing John's plate had Karri smirked.

John knew he'd been a bit forward by inviting himself to sit with Karri, but it seemed to have work, she hadn't gotten up and moved, or asked him to leave,. or thrown food at him. In fact she spoke to him.

" Galaxies an races may differ but good food is good food,. even if it's only passable replicator fare." There was even a bit of a smirked as her fangs peaking out of her lopsided grin.

She swirled a piece of kumara in the steak dregs an cream, coating it thoroughly . She chewed it quickly, she licked her lips an eyeed Johns' plate. " though the cake is a nice touch, Catian desert would be a Gwar fruit preserved in Agar jelly topped with more Sonta cream."Pausing, then. "Human equivalent would be.. umm... mandarin orange in, Ahh... I think it was called J-ello? ..with whipped cream,. Though I don't think the humans pallet would be comparable to the same. Most Catian food is a ...acquired taste." she chuckled softly.

"You clearly know more about humans than I do about Caitians. Perhaps you can teach me, this assignment has left us with a lot time to fill and I'm off duty ,, So what were your plans for today?" John gave her his best boyish smile.

The chat is the common room of the Red Dragon Inn and as the resident bartender I see the needs of our guests. When I am away my assistant Igor is there to the food and drink. But as you may or may not know poor Igor cannot speak. His last boss, that nasty Troll over at the Orc Bar & Grill, had cut out his tongue. So if you see that someone is in the Chat but no one appears or talks its just Igor puttering around waiting to serve up some "Good Old Froth-n-Slosh" and Lady Fingers.

Hey Tann... PM me for ideas... I usually have a better ideas on other characters than my own. It took a bit for me to get my head on straight for John as LTJG but with a bit of "over thinking" and offline research I finally got back inside of him. In Discovery it was similar and I was just starting to flow with it when it fizzled.

So PM me or call me and we can will help me too as Rock's Jr officer.

I will be traveling again next week but I should be able to answer from the hotel.

With how I started here I bet Olan is rolling his eyes with old slow Ody offering

Subject: Breakfast???????.........

Stardate: 2365.02.07
USS Peregrine. Mess hall. 0545hrs.

The door slid open and John stepped into the mess hall. A quick glace around found Lt. D'rai Sa'eridon seated alone at a corner table looming over a tray odd colored meat covered in a cream colored sauce.

A smile cross John's face as he thought he heard a low purr coming Karri as she indulged in her meal," Ah, a carnivore" he murmured.

Stepping to the replicator he stated his order, perhaps bit louder than necessary:

Sixteen once Prime Rib, ..medium rare,.. Au jus and horseradish.....

Red Skin Baked potatoes with sour cream and butter...

German style Sauteed Red Cabbage...

Asperagus steamed with lemon juice, salt and pepper...

Two Parkerhouse small rolls.. warm with fresh butter on the side...

German Chocolate cake...


When the door opened he slid out the tray. Grabbing the tray John turn and walked across the room to Karri's table.

"Lieutenant, would you mind if I joined you."

Before she could answer he set down his tray and seated himself. Smiling slightly,"It so nice to occasionally order up something that reminds you of home."

The aroma of beef and Au jus fill his nose.

Slicing a piece of the beef he dipped it in the Au jus and slathered a bit of horseradish on the bite. Chewing down on the bite he closed his eyes and exhaled a satisfying sigh that rolled to a low growl of pleasure. As he opened his eyes he saw the Catian looking at him.

In a smooth Midwestern drawl John voiced,"Mighty fine!"

Hello......... Thought I'd pop in here and add the Ody welcome.
A really good place to start here is "Pit F(r)iend's epic guide to getting started for newbies." That helps you figure out how to navigate the halls of the Inn.
To meet folk in real time pop into the DragonChat where I act as current resident bartender. We offer our very own "Good Old Froth-n-Slosh", the stale pale ale that is so light it has the foam on the bottom.

Just grab a mug off the mantel and draw a cold frosty one.

My assistant Igor is usually lurking around if I'm not there.

He never says anything, must have something to do with having his tongue cut out by his last boss, that nasty bartender over at the Orc Bar & Grill.

I'll have him put out a plate of "Lady Fingers" in your honor.

Reminds me we need to have another "Ladies Night" and restock.

Anyway the Posting Games are great place to get to know folks and of course the DragonChat is our favorite lounge.

So lurk or play, welcome to the Inn

Subject: Time.........

Stardate: 2365.02.07
USS Peregrine. LT John Britt Reid's quarters. 0545hrs.

A .45 caliber shell tipped with a slug of pure silver. The origin was linked to a tale passed from generation to generation. When a young Texas Ranger had planned to seek revenge on the murders of his brother an aged retired Ranger made the silver filled loads and presented them to the young man. With it he told him that they were to remind him of the value of life. This had a profound effect and cooled his want of revenge and flamed his desire for justice. That is where a family legacy was started.

John sat in his quarters holding the clear cube with the bright silver cylinder inside. His commitment to Star Fleet and this cube ran parallel in his mind. Duty and honor on one side; justice on the other. Like those that came before him he was a lawman.

John slipped the block back into the black silk bag and stowed it back in the drawer. He was off duty for another glorious eight hours and there were some more than interesting crew member on board. Lt. D'rai Sa'eridon was possibly the most amazing woman he had ever met. Her feline features had caught his attention but her piercing blue eyes captivated him. He wasn't sure of the protocols between Human and Caitian. From what he had observed she was brilliant, talented and dedicated and if they only ever just became friends John would still feel ,. well maybe better than friends.

With a few hours to fill John headed to the mess, perhaps Karri might show.

The good news is that new employer does not block all sites that may come up as "Games" so I can again visit the Inn at lunch.

Bad news is I got all turned around in my researching to put together a bit more background for Lt. Reid and had to start over. I wanted to give Tann a bit more to work with.

Reid's first assignment had been on the USS Mandela, An Ambassador class heavy cruiser like Enterprise - C. After 2 years he was promoted LTJG but assigned to a small Scout ship (Saber Class) of the Peregrine on this routine business of
scaring pirates. Was he promoted and then isolated or was someone wanting him there to learn from and help the CO, another man of Justice.

The party had decided there were too many of crazed creature in the forest just move past the beach to try and venture past them in the daylight. They would spend more to bait them to the beach in an effort to reduce their numbers.

As darkness fell the party manned the beach to draw them out. Ulthok sent Peri skyward a bit to help him judge the distance to the pack as they charged. So as the on slot began the Halfling mage cast fireball into the midst of the throng taken out many and perhaps slowing the rust to allow the others to deliver more fire. As needed then to support the others the mage would a second fireball to destroy those still pressed forward. When the carnage was more than they could stomach the party once more would retreat to the boat. There their once again rested and replenished the magic.

Tann and I had discussed this a bit and I think it can be a great story line. Even as NPC to Tann it gives good flexibility. As Tactical Officer it added to his experience and fit to the assignment on Discovery.

I like the story plot of two revile groups. There is bound to be injustice there to fit John's subplot. Where Star Fleet may not be able to act "Officially", they my still need a hero. "Hi Ho Peregrine, Away!!!"
