The Prime must bodily process the constant, immense information stream of her people. Ensign Leana’x is happy tinkering in the engineering bay and taking orders. Lieutenant Commander John Campbell will be an exacting XO. He's just received a promotion, and he has no intention of disappointing his surrogate father, Captain Chan. Campbell toes the line, and he expects others to, regardless of complaints. His nickname in the Academy was Pit Bull, and if he gets you in his sights, he won't let go.
