"Chief can you join me in my office please?" Heather asked, from the doorway of the Chief's Office. Heather and Jennifer had both adopted the custom of leaving their office doors open when they weren't busy. PERS2 Antonis obviously objected to it and kept his firmly shut which with over the last couple of weeks since taking command had decided it was better after all.

Jennifer looked up from the PADD work she was working on. "No problem, ma'am." She tabbed the PADD to secure mode for a moment and got up to follow Heather.

When Jennifer agreed she left the doorway and walked passed the XO's Office and to her own, walking into it she turned and waited for her to follow her in, standing in the middle of the floor.

"Close the door," she said, before going to her chair and having a seat. "Relax," she said, motioning to the chair. "I have some good news and I have some bad news for you and some more good news," she said, with a smirk on her face.

"That sounds.. promising." Jennifer took her seat. "I guess I should start with the good news then?"

"Effective immediately Mr. Antonis has been reassigned to the JAG Office on Starbase 72," she said, clearly happy with this development. "After speaking with the Task Force Personnel Officer and Captain Kennedy we decided this was a good move."

Jennifer nods. "That sounds like a good idea. Something he's probably much well more suited for, given his temperament."

"Yeah," Heather nodded. "So the bad news is that I need to move someone into that role... so I discussed it with command and I'm going to be making you my Executive Petty Officer." Heather blushed, "not to mean that it is bad that I have to promote you... just that you personally have more work to do."

Jennifer blinked. She seemed surprised for a moment. "I'm.. well." She smiles. "I'm honored, but I understand. That is a lot of work to do, but I will try to do it to the best of my ability."

"As of now I'm not planning on filling the Command Chief role," Heather explained. "Back to the good news though," she said, picking up a pip that'd been lying on her desk. She stood up and walked around the desk to the Chief and waited for her to stand. "I hereby promote you to the rank of Senior Chief Petty Officer," she said, taking her old pip off and replacing it with the new one.

Jennifer nodded, standing to attention. "Thank you, ma'am."

"Mr. Antonis will get you up to speed any concerns let me know," Heather said. "You should probably go get his attention before he runs off happily to the JAG office."

Jennifer saluted and she headed to talk to Antonis before he left - to get up to speed with what he was doing.
