Personal Log, Stardate 70473.04
I just received my new orders. I will be serving on the U.S.S. Asger. I never searved on a Norway class before. From what I understand, I will be their very first Intel Officer. These smaller ships don't usually have a need for an Intel Officer, but they seemed to have run into a situation that would call for it.
I'm having mixed emotions about this. I'm expecting to be greeted with mixed results. Being the only Romulan in Starfleet is hard enough. Being a Romulan in Starfleet NOW is even harder. Just wait till they learn I am ex Tal Shiar.
I love Starfleet. If it wasn't for them, I would be dead now. I owe everything to them. But, every new posting is the same thing. I would love to come on board one time and be accepted from the get go. It's hard enough for the crew to accept an Intelligence officer on board, let alone a Romulan one. They all think I am spying on them and gathering information. I mean, I am, but not for nefarious reasons. It's my job to know everything that is happening, both internally and out.
I will have to schedule my first eval appointment with the ships Counselor. I'm sure by the tie I arrive, they will have read my file. Let's see how long into the session before this one brings up Tumis. Don't get me wrong. I love talking about him. But... I miss him so much. I don't care how long it has been. He is...Was my everything. I don't know if I will ever get over it. I don't know if I will ever meet someone that made me feel that way again. I don't know if I ever want to. I miss him so much.
I will be expected to meet the commander rather quickly. Let's see how this one goes.
"I'm not against having a Rommie on my ship, the Federation just doesn't have a good history with your people."
"So, I see they tried to execute you for going rogue, you're not going to do that to me are you?"
"I'm sorry that your home planet got destroyed, what must that be like?"
Always the same.
Well, this is not the time to be talking about my feelings. Besides, I have to go pack and get ready to ship out. Don't want to miss my transport. What is that old Earth expression? The early bird gets the worm? I think it applies. These Terran colloquialisms are really difficult to wrap my head around. I should set a reminder to research what a worm is. Maybe that will help it to make sense.
