[Thoughts]

It was the sweat in the palms of his hands, the look in his eyes and the unease in which he shifted in his chair that were signs that this was not the briefing he had ever prepared to attend. He was not quick to leap to the floor with questions but he certainly had many, even Dutch's barely scratched the surface but it was a start. To some officers those four pips were a sacred commitment at the core of ones being. It was an unbreakable understanding that the Federation came first, nothing was more important than the next mission and then the one that followed that. Raiser in response may have even began to speak of a personal missions and individual pursuit, yet that was only some way of trying to justify the situation and Thomas knew it. The work of the Victoria was not done, the next mission was soon to come and Captain Raiser was as needed as ever. Starfleet needed her, the Victoria needed her, even the inexperienced Commander Korleon depended on her being above his head. This wasn't a time to leave and hang up the uniform, this was a time to understand the Federation was as in need as ever for experienced captains and that she needed to accept that was what remained important.

Yet somehow his own concerns were shifted by the truth that had he been in her shoes, had the tables turned and it was Jenna who needed him to drop everything and run, a chance existed that he would follow his Captains example. She had given her life for what she held dear and it was not fair to expect her to keep up the fight any longer. All that remained was his concerns for the Victoria itself. Starfleet would use the opportunity to shake things up on board. They would be lucky if senior staff avoided being transferred around the fleet in an attempt to cut down the reputation of the crew being tainted under the command of Raiser. Truth be told Thomas saw it was a honor but in some circles it was hardly likely to see him assigned to a outpost monitoring freighter operations along one of the borders. At one point he had wanted the top job in Starfleet Security, yet he had never wanted a ship. Even the unraveling of his assignment as executive was never part of the original plan, it was Raiser that had trusted him then and somehow was trusting him to look after something as precious to her now. The posting of Acting Captain was one he could not even comprehend, but he nodded to show he understood at least her words as she informed him the ship was his.

If anything he felt relieved that if anything could be certain, Starfleet would undoubtedly have a new officer in four pips at the end of the table in seven days. Yet they would not be Raiser and this would always be Raisers ship. It was with a glance around the room he looked to her placing his hands on the table, "Ma'am, one question is more important than any other right now. Are you certain this is the direction you wish to go?"
