Mission: Getting started
Location: Main Engineering

The mutant cat girl, just happened to be coming into Main Engineering, to drop off a few things she'd not used all of. Giving a look over at, before even seeing T'Pel, she could smell her. Setting the box down. Coming over to well T'Pel was. "Um..can I help you?"

T'Pel was running a level 3 diagnostic on all the console within Engineering. Since her arrival she had been familiarizing herself with the much larger and advanced engineering systems and warp core. Upon hearing Strenvale's voice, she took a moment to look up and see her before looking back at the console, "I am not in need of assistance at this time," she responded, "Please ensure you place the contents of the box within appropriate storage facilities, if they are engineering items," she said looking up again, "Otherwise, I cannot permit you to leave those items here, Lieutenant."

This was this look of, 'oh hell no she didn't,' suddenly on her face. "I don't know who you are, and I know where I'm taking them." Not concerned with the rank, more concerned with this stranger messing with the Engineering consoles.

"You don't know who I am, ma'am. Or Sir, if you wish to follow naval tradition," T'Pel corrected her, "I am Lieutenant T'Pel, I am the Chief Engineering Officer," the Vulcan told her, "I am please you know where you are taking them other than the floor," she commented as she moved to a new console and starting a new diagnostic before looking back at Kaylia, "And you are, Lieutenant?"

Her violet tail swished back and forth a little bit. "Kaylia Strenvale. Chief Tactical officer. Nice to meet you. When did you come on board?" Moving to where she got them in the first place. The doors closing behind her, then opened again, just her fuzzy eared head popping out. "Don't worry, I can still hear you while I put these away." Head disappearing and doors closing again.

"Greetings," the Vulcan replied back to her, "I arrived on board approximately 6 hours ago," she told her as she looked to the space of the closed door as she raised an eyebrow, but took Kaylia's word she could hear her, "Computer, reroute nacelle maintenance control to console 14 alpha and reinitialize with panel arrangement T'Pel 1." The computer responding in the affirmative as the console changed it's configuration.

"I see. I apologize for jumping to conclusions then." Tilting her head a moment, "Isn't that going to confuse anyone else using that panel."

"The engineering team will be briefed on the new panel controls and will adjust," she commented to her, "While there are standard Starfleet console controls across all ships in the fleet. Starships are granted leeway to make starships as efficient as possible. Something as simple as console arrangements can increase said efficiency. How humans would say, 'I jury-rigged' the controls to be more optimal." She explained.

"Computer, reroute ODN controls to console 9 beta and reinitialize with panel arrangement T'Pel 3."
