Location: Chief Security/Tactical Officer's Office - Deck 9 - USS Pioneer
Timeline: MD001 0830 Hrs

Larim sat in his office, pouring over a padd. In it was a recording of the most recent battle. One where they came phaser to phaser with the Fearless. And one question came into his mind. "How did it get there?"

He needed an answer. One, for personal curiosity. And two, for records. So he put in a call for Lt Hollister to swing by his office.

Ingrid had been organizing her own office when the notice came from the computer that the Chief of Security wanted to see her. She rolled her eyes and said a silent prayer that it was nothing related to her past and a feeling of nervousness started to pang in her gut. She was a woman who had much to hide, after all.

Standing up and pulling on her uniform jacket, Ingrid exited her office and set her own course to the Security Offices. Once she arrived, she pressed the chime, taking a deep breath as she did so. Ingrid sauntered in, her expression neutral, even through the anxiety. She looked at the man behind the desk for a second before she spoke.

"You asked to speak with me?"

"Yeah. Make yourself comfortable." Larim began. "And relax. You're not in trouble. I'm just curious about the Fearless."

She remained standing, but put on a pretense of calmness. "Why would I be in trouble?" she asked, quirking a brow somewhat defensively.

"I just assumed." Larim said, remaining cordial. All the while his training told him something was amis. "Why wold you be in trouble? Something I need to know?"

"Uhh, no." Ingrid said rolling her eyes and adopting a tone that would suggest she thought he was stupid. "You're the one who said it; I was just responding to you."

She shifted uncomfortably on her feet, presenting her newfound annoyance to the man. "Is there something you need, Commander?"

"Just what can you tell me about the Fearless. That's it." Larim said, noticing her fidgeting

"I've already relived that nightmare for every officer on Empok Nor and their mothers." she said, furrowing her brow. "If you want to know about the Fearless, you should read the damn report."

"Well, I do have first-hand knowledge of its capabilities. I think I will read the damn report. Dismissed lieutenant." He said

Ingrid directed a frustrated expression at the man before turning on her heal and rolling her eyes as she exited the door. She was gone without another word.

"Well, that was quick." Larim said
