    Summary

    "Michael. You're early."

    Too busy staring at the steel gray sweater that seemed to show off every single muscle in his arms and chest, it took Michael a moment to follow that. What?

    "Number One told me the party would be starting earlier to accommodate alpha shift's early start," she said, slow.

    "Did she," Chris said, even, something like suspicion flashing in his eyes.

    Summary

    "Shot in the dark," he said, something dry in his voice. "Specialist Wells figured out my training schedule and has been spreading it around the lower decks."

    Michael startled. "Sir?"

    The corners of Pike's lips quirked. "There's been a rotating parade of the lower enlisted who have been wandering through during my weightlifting sessions. I figured I could tap some of that Vulcan honesty to verify my theory."

    Summary

    “Jaraaati ey foyar, Jenn Sig. Year twenty-seven thousand four hundred forty three, calendar two. Sculpture depicting the eternal struggle between the Gostar and the id. Donated to the EMoAS upon the artist's death, incomplete.” Pike looks up at the tangle of brightly colored interwoven limbs, and frowns. “Well that’s depressing.”

    Michael struggles to reconcile her emotions, Chris is hung up on propriety. Light it all on fire and burn it to the ground.

    Summary

    Chris appreciated it, but still. "Well, now Kat's decided she needs to hear from the entirety of the Discovery, too. What'd she ask you?"

    Number One eyed him steadily. "She wanted an assessment of your command. Asked if there was anything she should know. It seemed like a generic check-in. Naturally, I told her about your drunken bouts of ennui and that you need to get laid. She was not surprised."

    Summary

    "You're the talk of the flag officers, you know." Oddly, her gaze turned to Michael then. "Everyone's all aflutter."

    Michael blinked, lost, but Pike seemed to have a sense of her meaning. He made a dismissive noise. "Someone should tell the flag officers to calm down and mind their business."

    "Please try that. And let me watch," Number One returned, relishing this.

    Pike shot her a look that Michael couldn't even begin to parse. "That'll do, Commander."
