Personal Log, Lt. jg R'nard Lokran, Chief of Tactical/Security Starbase 249.
I have had two interviews today about the furtherance of my career in Starfleet. One was an offer of an XO job on the USS Liberty. The second was Security Chief on the USS Franz Boas. I turned down the first for the time being but accepted the second. It will mean added responsibilities for me as well as demands on my time. I hope I am doing the right thing. I know nothing about command, and to rectify that, I have applied for command training here.
Both realize that on either, I am still on call from Special Forces and could be recalled at any time for a mission. So far, SF has not responded,so I am not needed there.
I wonder if my reluctance could hold me back. I know according to a story about Captain Jean-Luc Picard, there is an alternate timeline where he played it safe and ended his career as a minor officer. I have never tried to play it safe myself from the beginning of my life at the Tralazar monastery. Why should I start now? So far, I have not been offered any promotions, but I know they are watching me. What does this new position mean to me? That is what I need to find out.
