Taking place before this thread
, featuring Captain Gorse, Chief Engineer Shala Kairan and Lieutenant Rochester Windthorpe.
Gorse believes in keeping his officers grounded and undistracted. That doesn't mean he's good at it. He's joking when he threatens to have people demoted, of course. He hand picked Torbette (Chief of Security) and Kairan for his team, with Rochester shoved rather rudely onto his ship at the last minute.
I like to think of them as a bunch of very professional friends.
