Encrypted Captain's Log 1

Captain's Log, Supplemental.

I just received word from Jack Hendricks. He's offered me a promotion to Fleet Captain, and Zane's old job.

I'd be lying if I said I wasn't tempted. After all, Fleet Captain Oliver Lancaster sounds better than just Captain.

And yet, I'm hesitating. I can't put my finger on it, but I'm seriously considering not taking it. I suppose I'm worried I'll lose my Command for it. After all, flag officers, even very junior ones, tend to fly desks, not starships.

Maybe that's what it's about. Not the losing my Command, but the one I already lost. I'm basically already flying a desk. I want to be hopping galaxies, not having a desk job.

It's funny. This is essentially a back door to that Admiralty position I've been aiming for from day one, and yet, here I am, thinking about closing it.

I'll see how things turn out with Enterprise. Who knows, maybe they'll give me her.

Or maybe not. We'll see.
