As I sit here in my personal quarters aboard the USS Ranger. I am drawn to an old saying I once heard. My friends grandmother used to say.

Be courteous to the people you meet. Because one day you may meet them again. Today that phrase came true. It seems one of my science staff is my old Astra metrics teacher from the academy. After meeting him I do hope he puts aside. The fact that the annoying student. Who always seemed to have his hand in the air. Is now technically his department head. I really enjoyed his classes and owe him a lot. Even though we did not exactly part on good terms. Which I feel is a shame.

The Captain is quite pleasant. I like her. Plus the XO seems to be a good person. Have not really had much of a chance to meet the others yet. Hopefully when it is time for the Ranger to part on her new mission.That will be remedied.

Mother sent me a nice communication. As usual congratulating me on my new position. Then in the next breath a complete tirade. On the usual subject, why aren’t I married?

Your sister is married and she has children. Mothers usual catchphrase whenever she speaks to me. It’s not that I don’t want to get married. I just don’t think that a partner would fit in to my life at present. But try telling my mother that.

Anyway there is a cheese and pickle sandwich with my name on it. Waiting for me in the mess.
