Mission: The Great Hunt
Location: Bridge
Timeline: Current

After requesting permission from the First Officer to come to the Bridge, the Counselor arrived to speak with the Captain, but Wesley did not make himself easy to reach. With a crew of thousands, he relied on the Chain of Command heavily, and would never speak with an officer without the XO first approving it. He had learned the hard way that's how things get messed up quickly.

Jon spied the counselor on the bridge and approaching his location. "Lt. Pottinger, what can I do for you?"

Pengelou approached the tall, authoritative yet friendly looking figure before her. She got the impression that he was curious about their new chief Counselor "Lt Pottinger Reporting for duty sir." She patiently waited for him to respond.

"I see." Jon answered easily, "If I'm not mistaken, your duty station is either your office or Sickbay not the bridge."

Pengelou was taken aback by this comment "I'm a bit confused, sir, I thought that part of my duties was to not only see to the crew members but to also aid the Captain. I am not only a Counselor but an Empath and could also be of good use on the bridge when making first contact."

Pengelou held her breath waiting for a response. Did she step out of place on her first day?

"I'm sure you will be Counselor when the time comes but as of this moment we are not in a First Contact situation. Is there something else you required?""

"Counselor..." Wesley started as he walked up.

"If I understand it correctly your empathic abilities are strong, correct?" he asked.

Jon stood to one side and watched and waited in silence as the Captain approached and spoke to the Counselor.

TAG Counselor

Pengelou was taken aback. It was very rare that she was caught off guard, but she was unaware of the Captain's entrance to the bridge from his ready room. She knew that he was Bajoran but had his telepathy blocked, but could that blocking also cause his thoughts and emotions to blocked from her too? She had never heard that but since she hadn't had much experience around Bajorians in general, she wasn't sure.
"Yes Captain, it usually is" she said with as much confidence as she could muster
