I do believe I'm only missing Morph, who I'll just sorta DM into position for the sake of time.
IC: Glancing up from the manual in order to do a head count, I nod as Stellara walks into the room and run a mental run over of anyone I recognized. First among them was the two love birds from earlier. Sighing and shaking my head, I fold the corner of the page I was on and close it, setting it to one side.
"Seeing as everyone is here who needs to be, let's begin with who I am. My name is Joseph Cronus, a former Marine of the Black Guard Infantry Regiment. My unit with in the Black Guard was the Crimson Knights. Now, all of the Black Guard, excluding myself, are dead. That aside, I'm also your new Flight Chief."
I stop speaking a moment and let that sink in, noting all the whispers among the more experience pilots. Not giving them a chance to contradict me, I push on.
"Now, I know many of you are curious as to why a Marine is a Flight Chief. That's simple. I know how to whip you sorry lot into a cohesive, effective unit and from there, cohesive teams. To begin that process, we'll have your names."
Looking over the faces of each person, I point at the lovebirds. Small bit of payback. "You two, full names and prior attachment with the Fleet."
Perhaps putting them on the spot so suddenly was a bad idea, but hey, this was going to happen a lot, and not just to these two.
