catching up [Mess Hall - Bones] [Feb. 26th, 2010|09:16 pm]
Lieutenant Uhura
As a rule, Nyota tried not to plan anything on her days off, as few and far between as they were. Normally something would come up that she just had to see to, and then she'd end up having to cancel whatever plans she made. And for one day out of the countless she spent following a strict routine - however disrupted that could become because of whatever trouble they'd landed themselves in that week - it was nice to have one day where she could simply go with it.

But there were certain exceptions to her informal rule, Leo being one of them. How could she say no to spending time with her favorite Doctor? They'd both been so busy, between reports and annual physicals and people being turned into children. Nyota felt like it had been months since she'd been able to sit down and properly talk with him about anything at all.

After a brief swim and shower, she made her way to the mess hall a few minutes before they'd agreed to meet to search for somewhere to sit. There were plenty of people they could sit with, but the few times she got him alone, she felt the selfish urge to enjoy that for as long as she could. Who knew who would comm him away? She finally settled for the corner nearest to the entrance - easier to spot him when he walked in, in case he missed her - and sat down, padd in front of her while she waited.

Don't worry Riley, I'm always the last on these things.

Feel free to ask me anything, anonymously or not. And hey, you can tell me if I've missed anything important.

mission totally possible: meet the natives [ALMOST HOME] [Dec. 1st, 2009|05:13 am]
Lieutenant Uhura
Although the creatures had retreated with the first light, the four women waited until day had fully broken before they risked moving out of the safe perimeter. Sunlight came just in time, the last of the torches burning itself out as Nyota got stiffly to her feet. With slight hesitation, she moved forward, Leah following after her, phaser held tight in her hands just in case some of the creatures had decided to stick around. A quick check in the nearby bushes showed nothing; clearly these things were too sensitive of light to attack them during the day, just as Tina had guessed.

"It's safe," Leah informed the nurses who had been awkwardly resting, trying to conserve whatever strength they could for the mornings trek. Each of them knew they couldn't survive another night against those things, especially not with two injured now. The only thing they could do was get to the settlement and hope that they were friendly. If they weren't... well they were out of options. They were half a days walk off, but that was before Tina had gotten injured. Would she be able to make it before nightfall?Collapse )

why do i encourage this? [Nov. 30th, 2009|05:32 pm]
Lieutenant Uhura
Appreciated for your kindness and envied for all your experience, you are The Maid of Honor.

Charismatic, affectionate, and terrific in relationships, you are what many guys would call a “perfect catch”—and you probably have many admirers, each wishing to capture your long-term love. You’re careful, extra careful, because the last thing you want is to hurt anyone. Especially some poor boy whose only crime was liking you.

We’ve deduced you’re fully capable of a dirty fling, but you do feel that post-coital attachment after hooking up. So, conscientious person that you are, you do your best to reserve physical affection for those you respect...so you can respect yourself.

Your biggest negative is the byproduct of your careful nature: indecision. You’re just as slow rejecting someone as you are accepting them.

Accurate enough I guess, except I have no issues rejecting someone. Just ask Kirk.

I'm always late on these things even Nero beat me but I do enjoy memes.

How this meme works:
1 - Leave a comment, saying you want to be interviewed.
2 - I will respond; I'll ask you five questions.
3 - You'll update your journal with my five questions, and your five answers.
4 - You'll include this explanation.
5 - You'll ask other people five questions when they want to be interviewed.

[intraship communications] mission: totally possible [shuttle dock 2] [Nov. 4th, 2009|01:33 pm]
Lieutenant Uhura
Private to Nurse Chapel (Christine), Head Nurse Chapel (Tina) and Petty Officer LawtonCollapse )

Private to Captain KirkCollapse )

The first thing Nyota did when she returned to her quarters was send her selected team and Captain a brief message outlining what was happening. That done, she quickly showered and dressed, her body protesting just a little against so much haste so early in the morning when she had barely slept. But she was determined to show the pleasant Admiral that her professionalism had not, and would never, be affected by whatever personal issues she had. As soon as she smoothed down the red of her uniform, pulled her hair back into the customary ponytail, she was Lieutenant Uhura, and she had no intentions of this mission being anything more than one hundred percent successful.

It took her two hours to co-ordinate the supplies and get the shuttle prepped, and she was glad that it went relatively smoothly. She couldn't help but be proud; they may have been some of the youngest members of Starfleet, but they were nothing but efficient and the best. If she hadn't been sure of her choice to be a part of the Enterprise, every time she watched the departments co-ordinate with such ease, it would push any hesitations out of sight and out of mind.

She was still in the shuttle dock, PADD in hand as she checked tasks from her list, when the first of her team arrived. "You're early," she commented with a bright smile. "Lets hope this is a sign of things to come."

recieving orders [Enterprise Conference Suite] [Nov. 3rd, 2009|02:08 pm]
Lieutenant Uhura
Normally when Nyota was on the Beta shift, she would spend the morning catching up on some reading, or taking a trip to the gym with a friend. The late start was especially advantageous after a particularly trying evening; if there was one thing the previous night had been, it was trying. Yet as always she had a duty to do, so with slight reluctance she forced herself awake at 0600 hours to attend the conference HQ had requested. Her body protested a little as she untangled herself from the blankets and she spent a moment adjusting to consciousness.Collapse )

getting ready [Tina's Quarters] [Oct. 30th, 2009|02:56 pm]
Lieutenant Uhura
On one hand, Nyota couldn't believe that the Haloween party was going forward, after everything that had happened. But as she thought about it a little more, she realized that maybe a little fun, a night where (hopefully) nothing went wrong was exactly what was needed to boost crew morale.

Besides, she never could resist dressing up.

She spent the morning finishing up the loose ends of paperwork that she'd been putting off for the past few days, her costume already hanging in her wardrobe. As soon as that was done and off her mind, she could concentrate on enjoying herself. Normally she would ask her friends to her quarters, but it was their quarters now, and she didn't want to subject Spock to the idle gossip that she made with Tina as they got ready. So grabbing everything she needed, Nyota made her way to her friends room a few hours before they were supposed to be at the party.

"Alright," Nyota called through the door as she buzzed. "I have costumes, I have wine. Please, lets get this night over and done with."

making room [Nyota's Quarters] [Oct. 25th, 2009|02:18 am]
Lieutenant Uhura
Nyota was having trouble remembering the last time she hadn't been rushing off somewhere, catching a brief moment with Spock in the hallway before each of them had another duty to attend to, a Captain to check on. When she had imagined her life on a Starship (the Enterprise, it had always been the Enterprise), she had imagined herself alone, unable to see where - what was even the right word for Spock? Boyfriend? Lover? - another person would fit in with her dreams. Yet as soon as she had made room for him, it was difficult to see her life without his constant presence, even if their schedules and responsibilities made it inconvenient.

Somewhere between her shift and her second shift, she had found ten minutes to go and change, wishing it was long enough for a shower. The sooner this was over with, and James was back on the Bridge, the sooner she could breathe easily again and maybe be able to sit without another crisis coming to her attention. It was amazing how much could fall apart at the same time.

Clearly not enough, she decided, as Spock had rushed into her quarters to inform her that someone had taken it upon themselves to mess with his own quarters. Once may have been able to slip by as accidental, as a malfunction on the long list of things for Scotty to fix. But twice was deliberate, and while she said nothing, Nyota had her suspicions. Instead she simply listened, shook her head and tried to impart whatever comfort was possible in the snatched few minutes before he was once again out of the door.

Glancing at her chronometer, she noted that she only had four minutes before her shift started. It took one of those to adjust the temperature of her room into a compromise between what was comfortable for her and what was comfortable for Spock, another two to clear her clothes from one of her drawers, and the last minute to write him a brief note to make himself at home.
