Meeting of the Flyboys

Posted on Mon Apr 10th, 2017 @ 10:52pm by Captain Dirk Callahan & Lieutenant JG Matthew O'Daire

Mission: S1E2: The Surprise Attack
Location: USS Cairo - Main Shuttlebay

Dirk found himself in the shuttle bay for some reason or another, while touring the ship. He had also heard that one of his support craft pilots was there. He found him going through one of the various support craft in the bay.

"Lieutenant O'Daire?" he said

Matthew was tinkering with a nacelle of a Type 8 shuttlecraft when he heard Callahan's voice. He stood and turned. "Hullo, sir!" He stated, observing Dirk. "You must be the new Flight Control Officer, eh?"

"That's right." He told him. "What are you working on?" He asked

"Just a bit o' maintenance on the Kepler here," he replied, fondly running a hand over the shuttlecraft's hull. "Making sure all is in order when we leave the Station." O'Daire thought for a moment, then said, "You likely know who I am, but a formal introduction wouldn't hurt." Then, extending his hand, "I'm Matthew O'Daire, pleased to meet you."

Dirk shook the extended hand. "Dirk Callahan." He looked around at the shuttle. "You need a hand?" He asked.

Matthew thought for a second. "I don't think so, sir, just finishing up. Would you like to get a drink or something at the observation lounge later?"

"Sure, lieutenant." He replied. "I'll be there."

O'Daire smiled. "I look forward to it, sir. is there anything else you need right now?"

"Not at the moment." Callahan said, looking the shuttle over. "Carry on."
