I am unsure of how to begin. The recent loss of three security officers on an away mission has caused me to rethink the training and readiness of my department aboard the Hera. I will have to increase their hand to hand and melee training as they appear to rely on ranged and energy-based weapons in a fight. When I am done training them, they will be much more ready to engage in and survive an encounter with any hostiles we engage.
As for my thoughts about the Hera...it is an interesting vessel. Security's role appears to obviously be different than that aboard normal Starfleet vessels. There are times I feel like I am out of the loop, so to speak about matters aboard the vessel. If I am out of the loop, how can I be expected to perform my duties as Chief of Security? Although not all is troublesome as I have made a few friendships aboard the ship, such as Lieutenant Thex sh'Zoarhi, the vessel's Chief Engineer and Chief Petty Officer Cato West...although his friendship is much more complex. There are times I wonder if he is indeed, sincere about our friendship as his word says he is, but his body language says another.
I have duty in thirty minutes so it is time for me to get ready. End log.
