The black and white man smoothed his uniform one more time and shook his shoulders. He blew out his breath. Everything is okay he thought, new team, new chance. Just help them do the best they can. He willed himself to turn the corner and identified the Bajoran woman. He stepped forward to her and offered his hand, flashing a smile and not presenting a trace of the panic attack he almost had: "Good morning, I'm Bernard your new TAO. You must be Ensign Nila."

"Ensign Anyi." Nila corrected as she looked the man over. She looked at his hand and then his smile, he worked for Stevens someone Nila did not like. "I am our Chief of Operations." She spoke softly and gently took his hand. "What can I do for you, Ensign Bernard?"

"I apologize, Ensign Anyi. I just came aboard and wanted to introduce myself. From what I understand, I'll be in charge of several weapons systems on the ship and possibly arming away teams and the like. Since you are head of OPS, I wanted to make myself available to you in anyway I can. Is there anyway security can work better with you than it has in the past? What do you need from us?"

"You don't need to be sorry, a lot of people tend to forget that our family name is before our giving name." Nila pushed aside a few padds before offering Bernard a seat. "As for if you can do anything for me I don't have any pressing concerns at least ones that are not personal."

Bernard blinked, then sat. "I used to fight the Dominion. Now I'm on a very beautiful starship, in another war zone, tasked with keeping things peaceful inside more than fighting things out there--" he pointed out a view port. Then he looked at her. "I want to do my new job well. I think that helping you is part of that. Tell me any concerns you have. Personal or otherwise."

"Trust me it's not an issue for security to handle, so don't worry about it." Nila rubbed her temple. "If I have an issue for security to handle you will be the first person I come too." She looks at a padd that was about the sensor network of the Hawaii.

Bernard nodded and stood. "Fantastic," he held out his hand again,"I've been invited to a party tonight. Will I see you there?"

Nila rubs her eyes, "I might go, parties and social events are not really my thing."

Bernard took his hand back, unshaken. "Alright," he said, "If I see you, I see you." The black and white man made his way out of OPS.

"Do me one favor Ensign, make sure to tell Lieutenant Stevens to keep his pet on a leash." Nila set down her padd and watched Bernard as he walked towards the door.

Bernard turned around. "Sure will. Did something happen?" He realized that he had received absolutely no training with canines for this job.

"Personal things Ensign, personal things." Nila lifts her padd again. "Thanks for stopping by."

Bernard nodded. "Anytime," Bernard left OPS.
