After speaking with Ensign Watson, she made her way out onto the promenade heading towards the turbolift that would lead her to the deck where her quarters were located. As Nilah walked looking around in amazement, she then looked down at the padd with the needed navigational points to where to go while pulling along her luggage. She was about to round a corner looking up a bit too late and ran into another Ensign in yellow, causing her to fall backward hitting the deck.

Azir made his way towards the promenade with his bag slung over his shoulder. He wasn’t sure where his quarters were. He found his mind adrift thinking about the journey he had been on when something smacked into him. He shook his head as he steadied himself. He looked around in front of him and then saw another ensign on the floor.

He felt his cheeks flush and he shook his head. “I’m sorry about that I wasn’t looking where I was going. Are you okay?” he asked as much as rambled.

Looking at the Ensign in front of her, “Yes I am alright.” She said as she picked herself up from the ground standing upright, she straightened her uniform out. “Truth be told I wasn’t exactly paying that much attention either. This place is huge and was admiring the Promenade before looking at my padd to make sure I was going in the right direction.” She went on, knowing she was talking too much again. “I am Ensign Nilah Virahl newly assigned here as an Engineer,” she said extending her hand towards him with a smile as she just arrived on board and she already started off meeting people with a bang.

He shook her hand with a smile. “Azir Wolfguard, newly assigned to tactical. I was trying to make my way to the deck officer but this place is a lot bigger than imagined, it’s impressive. You know you can read over the schematics and defense systems but it doesn’t do this place justice.”

He rubbed the back of his head knowing he had just rambled a lot of unimportant and to most people useless information. “So I guess we’re both new to the station,” he said trying to recover from rambling.

She smiled as she figured out there was another one like her who tends to talk too much when nervous, “It is huge I’d never imagined I would be assigned right out of the Academy to a space station.” Nilah replied as she looked at him.

“When I first heard I was getting assigned to a starbase I thought it was going to be, well I’m not exactly sure what I thought it would be but it wasn’t this,” he said with a soft chuckle. “I’m not holding you up am I?”

She chuckled, “no I have plenty of time before the beta shift starts. ”Maybe I can show you where the deck officer is located as I just came from there, well at least one of them anyway.” Nilah replied with a smile looking at him.

He smiled taking one last look around where they were. “Lead on,” he said as paused “Would you prefer me to call you by your first or last name,” he asked before rushing to add more “Or rank”  

‘This is why you spend time with books’ he chastised himself in his head. He had spent most of his time in the academy in the library people were not his strong suit but books and knowledge were.

She smiled at him as they began to walk the way that she came, “you can call me Nilah.” She replied with a smile as they walked down the promenade towards where the transporter room was where she had met the deck officer. Sure there were other ones around but she was unsure of where they would be so she just took him to the one she knew about.

“It’s nice to meet you,” he said with a smile as he followed her, his eyes working over the station. “Thank you for showing me where to go” he added trying not to ramble.

They continued to chat while they walked, once they arrived she bid him farewell. “I am sure we will see each other again,” she said before she walked back towards the direction that she had just come to head to her quarters. She made sure to always pay attention to where she was going and if she had to look at directions she would just stop and look instead of looking while walking.
