Location: Quarters/Roosevelt Station
Timeline: January 26, 2389 - 2000h - MD1

Leah had already changed into her new uniform and placed her new ranks on both sides of her collar. She looked into the mirror as she adjusted her uniform. "This will take some time to get used to," Leah stated to herself after she forgot to ask the Admiral a question and just finally getting a response back from him she decided to call her Executive Officer to her quarters. "General Leah to Lieutenant Colonel Dagara please report to my quarters." She said as she wondered what he says to the General part but ended the comm channel before he could respond. She sat down as she waited for his arrival.

Roman had been in the middle of a routine he had set himself since he was a young face Lt in the Marines. He had been reading medical publications when the call came in. He sighed and set down the PADD with care as it was one that he had traveled with since he was young and had a lot of personal information stored on it. "On my way," he said after he tapped his comm badge.

The elder man walked casually but with purpose as he reached the quarters, he pushed the chime.

"Enter," Leah responded as she seen her doors open and she stood up. "Please come in," Leah stated with a smile on her face. "So how things going?" Leah asked as she looked at him.

Roman nodded and smiled as well "Things are good finally getting back to being out of experimental mode. You know how things are after long deployments. I am enjoying working with the staff that you have assembled and they are top of the line."

She nodded, "well that's not the reason I brought you here," Leah stated with a smile she couldn't hide anymore. She pulled out a box and opened it pulling out a full bird. She reached up and removed his Lieutenant Colonel pips and placed the full bird on his uniform. "As of today, you are hereby promoted to the full rank of Colonel with all the privileges and rights thereof," Leah stated with a huge smile. "Congratulations Colonel!" Leah stated as she looked at him.

Roman was very shocked as he never expected to have the full bird attached to his uniform. This was definitely a shock to him. "Thank you, General. I didn't ever think I would be promoted to this. When did this happen?"

"Just a few moments ago," Leah stated with a smile. "You deserve this promotion as you been my right hand for the past couple years," Leah stated looking at him.

"Thank you so much, Sir. It is always nice to feel appreciated." He was truly shocked as he was in truth an XO and while he had worked at levels that many would have killed to have he had also done things he never expected. A Colonel was a nice opportunity as it meant not just his direct superior thought he was good but that the Task Force Command Staff themselves thought he was worth the effort. "I am so shocked, but also very grateful for all of your support and help if it wasn't for you I would have gone back to the outlying systems as a medic again."

"Well I am glad you are here instead," Leah stated then looked at him. "Also, I have a request for you. I am going to have you stay behind at Roosevelt Station during our mission. We have some new members that I need you to keep an eye on. I don't think anything bad were to happen, but until we all get used to them I need my Executive Officer here on base to handle any situation that was to come up here." She said looking at him.

"I have granted a Romulan Embassy, it is foolish not to as they want to try to come up with a peaceful resolution and hopefully can work together between Federation and the Romulans. I don't sense anything negative from him, so I am giving it a chance. Commander Ceeye will be working closely with him as well." Leah stated.

Roman nodded "Understood. I will put a couple of our sneakier members on the Romulan's. I have some idea as to how to get information that isn't going to normally be easy to get. We will need someone cleaning and I know an intel lady who is very good at keeping an eye on things like that and she will have no problem reporting these to us. Should I contact her as well and see if I can get her to take some time here with us. I think her assignment is almost up and she could be requested as well"

"I really don't think that would be necessary since Commander Ceeye will be with him the majority of the time. I don't want them to think we don't trust them, not that I do but I want to begin to build a relationship with them without them thinking we don't trust them. If you get what I mean, I am just basically wanting you here in case they need something that we can get them to make there stay a comfortable one. I know we are marines, but we are after all after the same goal as Starfleet and that's keeping the peace by all means." Leah stated looking at him. "He will only have access to a few areas but other than that the rest will be off limits unless there is an escort," Leah stated.

Roman nodded and understood. He didn't trust Romulans as they had been proven in the past to be devious and would take any means necessary to get what they wanted. "Understood I will keep things in order while you are away. Don't worry I may not trust them but I can keep my feelings burried deep inside. Are there any other instructions that you have for me?"

She nodded, "not at this time Colonel you are dismissed." Leah said with a smile before adding, "again congratulations on your promotion." Leah stated as she still had to finish up some things before tomorrow.

Colonel Roman Dagara left the room. Wow that would take some time to get used to. Colonel. As he left the room he headed for the bridge or command hub of the station.
