That Captain does not respect the Chair, nor the Team she leads.
Her disrespect and invalidation will be the death of her.
Respect the Chair.
Respect the Team.
Wow, that’s a very unexpected reaction. If anything, going to the Captain’s 1st officer was better than going straight to her, even after the fact. If the gossip is to believed she does not give much regard to enlisted even if an officer is not around, so having a senior officer deliver the news or agree with the guess would have helped a lot.
What is galling is the captain does not seem angry over protocol having been broken, the chain of command was utterly ignored in both cases. She seems to have taken it as a personal slight. She did order Calhoun back to his station, so she could be angry over him not obeying to his fullest, but it is probably not that. She could be angry he didn’t use the chain of command, but she did not care about that when he gave her the news. In fact, she was willing to listen to him, so the listening only to officers thing is a little overblown, but she shows no basic trust of the enlisted. If it had been her chief engineer who had come to her with the same news she might have trusted him without the interrogation of facts. A nice assumption of competence would likely be there.
If anything, the chief hiding the energy from the captain is worse, because the captain has to know the complete state of the ship to make decisions. Hiding the energy means she was working under false impressions of their options and might have determined to send a distress signal sooner, or she might have decided something else. If anything the chief doesn’t trust her, even if he was playful with the reveal.
I do like that the exec didn’t totally brush the tech’s ghots-worries off. Sailors are a superstitious breed afterall.
Does anyone else want to see her taken down a coupla pegs for that attitude?
Bet she doesn’t say crap like that around the COB though.
Wow, with an attitude like THAT towards enlisted, it’s no wonder the crew hates her…
Oh, boy. Captain, Captain, Captain… more edible words have seldom been spoken.
