A grumble left the Solaria's new chief of the boat as he drew a line on the diagram and flicked over to the next one. It was bad enough being short on supplies for repairs, but now having to draw up a list of parts that could be salvaged from the civilian ships. Combined with the fact that half the vessels had been converted, sent wrong blueprints or were going to just flat out lie about what they had available this would be a very hard task.
The familiar sound of the lift lowering made him look up placing the marker back in his belt. Another patrol coming in. One of the lifts did not sound healthy even after they'd done there best to get it repaired. A complete refit was probably out of the question.
" Okay everyone lets get the birds checked over and back in the launch tubes," he yelled to his crew who nodded as they went about there duty. They'd taken to being lead by him rather well even if they did whisper to him behind his back.
Dianna climbed from her Viper and did her customary self check before heading to the new Deck Chief, CPO Mitily. "So...you got drafted! ", she laughed. Patting her still warm engine, "when did you get here? I didn't see you earlier...but I'm glad you are here. My Vipers and Raptors need complete checks after all the crap we have put them through. Think your people can get it done?", Dianna asked, putting her hand on his shoulder.
" Cleared a few hours ago. Been looking through what supplies and spare this ship had in storage while you've been gone. Don't worry your birds will be airborne as soon as possible. Any birds you think need immediate attention." asked the old war dog.
"Yep mine and Bounty's. Check the DRADIS in both and check my right turbo, she's running a bit hot", Dianna said smiling. "I need a good chief here and I know I can count on you correct?", she added, patting him on the back.
Asond let out a grin as he replied. " Don't worry Lieutenant I was running a flight deck before you were even born. "
"That is good to hear", Dianna said laughing. Asond sounded like her friend from Caprica. "Well then I will let you to your job, but if you would like to join us later for a drink you are always welcome to do so", she added.
" I'll see if I can make it, but some of these landing bay needs a serious going over. " Asond said with a polite nod as he remembered the long list he needed to look at.
"Well our rec room door is always open", she said as she left him to his job.
" Talk to you later. " The old wardog said as he got back to his job yelling at a few of his staff to get back to work.
