Will awoke the next morning to the noise of a constant ringing. It was
his comm badge.

*Bloody hell* he thought as he got up to answer it. *I should have
turned it off*.

"Ramsay here." he sounded fatigued and barely awake.

[Lt. Ramsay, report to my office immediately. Oh, and bring your wife as
well. This is important.] said Captain Nicholas.

He sighed AND replied, "Yes, sir."

With curiosity burning in his mind, Ramsay roused Caroline and climbed
into his uniform.

"What is it?" she yawned.

"Something important. Come on." he replied, straightening out the
creases that had come from his rush.

When Will arrived (with a still half-asleep Caroline) he immediately
noticed a very unfamiliar but high-ranking officer seated with Nicholas.

"Sorry to rouse you, especially with it being the first day of your

"You'll be waiting perhaps a week for the rest of your team." concluded
the officer. "Until then, I'd like you to settle in on the ship and

Will and Caroline left Nicholas' office and headed to their quarters to
