From: Ensign Landers –Supply
We were alerted to a stasis container in hold number three that was loaded at L2 station. It contains a crew member who was brought aboard by cold transfer. This assignment went through personnel and the onboard computer started the rescusitation cycle to fill an empty flight crew position. The container shows a status of ‘prisoner’ but the computer has him listed as a pilot. It might be some kind of mistake.
There is a letter from some Ambassador along with it which I have forwarded to you. It’s marked ‘for commanding officer’.
I called security to escort the prisoner/pilot to medical and then the brig.
Prisoner transfer documentation.
To: Commanding officer, any outbound Federation starship
From: Rear Admiral (Ret.) Ternim Chase
I am forwarding this letter of recommendation to you along with the included (i.e. incarcerated) body of Private (Formerly, Chief Warrant Officer) William "Badgerprints" Chase.
He is in stasis along with his personal effects and military records.
Private chase is a decorated and experienced flight veteran and general miscreant who has the innate ability to lose rank almost as fast as he earns it.
His latest reduction of rank is due to an interplanetary incident involving an ambassadors daughter and a penthouse in the planetary Capitol the day before her wedding.
I can not go further into detail as court rulings dictate that in the case of diplomatic dealings between planetary ambassadors dependents .........well, it wasn't technically illegal but it wasn't the smartest thing he could have done.
The ambassador has pulled diplomatic strings that make it absolutely necessary to transfer Private Chase to a new duty station. I understand that he has posted a reward for terminal sanction for purposes of retaining family honor. This is of course illegal but diplomatic immunity knows no bounds. Obviously, haste was essential in Private Chase's transfer.
He will be in stasis at L2 Station awaiting a proper berth on an outbound assignment. I understand that this type of transfer is unusual, however Private Chase's technical status of prisoner mandates stasis or internment until he has been berthed. In this case stasis is a more inconspicuous method of deployment.
If you are in possession of this document, then your ship meets the minimum deployment requirements and records of transfer will be post dated accordingly.
I am aware that this transfer comes as a surprise and may not be the most efficient fit for an established crew however the assignment is mandatory and will not be rescinded. I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you or your staff.
I'll be frank with you. Badger can be somewhat tedious at times. He's belligerent, sarcastic, and can't seem to keep it in his pants. However, he has an exemplary combat record and is very reliable.
Obviously, I have a personal interest in his future. He is my sisters only son and I promised her I wouldn't let him rot in stasis on a supply scow chasing some patrol ship around the outer sectors.
So, thaw him out, make him clean toilets or put him on KP for a while. He's a good potato peeler and pot washer as he's had a lot of experience. He could use a swift kick in the can and a vigorous ass chewing as well. God knows he deserves it. Once he's completely thawed out and can use all of his digits, he'll make a worthy addition to your crew. He has been wounded on several occasions but still serves in full physical capacity with minor prosthetic enhancement. He is qualified and ready for flight duty if you see fit.
If you keep him busy he tends to stay out of trouble.

“Nenothtu started for the door, then abruptly stopped and turned.”Any Questions? If there aren't, you have jobs to do, and you're burning daylight" He grinned inwardly. He could afford to be human later, once he'd instilled the fear of Thor into these two. He paused long enough to see if they had any questions. “
