After a few hours of work, catching up on all the engineering business, Byrnes looked over when his inbox bleeped. Reaching over and tapping a key a holographic screen appeared in the air before him, so he opened the message. It was Starfleet Command, informing him that there had been a mistake in the orders due to a glitch in the system, and he was assigned to Tigris as the ACEO, not the CEO. Shrugging, he tapped the key and the holographic screen disappeared. With no CEO in position, he was acting CEO now, so what did it matter?
"Graf!" Sean waited a few moments, and was just about to yell again when he saw the younger man coming around the corner.
"Take over." Ordered Byrnes. "I am ACEO, a mixed message from Starfleet HQ had me as CEO. But, as Acting Chief, then that still makes you my assistant. I need to go get my bag out of the chief's quarters and move. Keep the teams rolling, shift change meeting, the works. I won't be back tonight."
Sean left engineering, gathered his bag, then looked up on his palm PADD where his new quarters were. "Deck three? You gotta be shittin' me. Nothin' like a 13 deck trip every day for work." He was joking with himself, knowing that the lifts moved almost instantaneously in most cases. As the ACEO he was being given quarters for a senior officer, which were roughly the same square footage as the Chief's cabin. Not too shabby, he thought. Hefting the bag to a better position on his shoulder, Sean whistled tunes as he went.
