It has been a tough week. I dealt with a difficult personnel matter and ended up having to turn it over to Captain Anzaldi. As a result, I created a New Member’s Guide to the Narragansett and a Questionnaire and Exam to go with it that lays out the expectations for crew members as well as an explanation of what we are about and how we are organized. When a new member completes the exam they will earn the rank of Crewman 1st Class, and the questionnaire will inform us as to what assignment they desire and what level of participation they wish to have.
Our mission to Cestus III has been, thus far, uneventful. We are enroute and will arrive next week. I am pleased with the progress of the upgrades reported by Lieutenant Bender. She is doing an excellent job in her new role as Chief Engineer.
Captain Knotts’ event on the holodeck was an enjoyable affair. It’s always nice to kick back and relax with friends after a long week. The senior staff members who could not make it were sorely missed.
