There was the briefest of hesitation as Erika closed her eyes, as though trying to decide to say more.  Then, she smiled gently once more and asked.  "You wanted to see me?"

"I've never seen the point in marketing a command. Either people want to be here or they don't. If they don't, then I don't want them here."

He steepled his fingers in front of himself.

"Whatever others may think, You are here because you're the right person for the job and I trust you."

She measured her words.  "Some would say my presence is being used to make your command seem more... marketable."  Her expression betrayed her concern that Blackfire would not understand the implications to him.

Waeve studied her silently for a long moment.

"Empress. Hardly fitting. You are neither Klingon nor a clone."

He smiled a bit.

"Win their trust Erika. I'm sure you've heard of Data?"

Erika's smile was soft, her voice calm.  "They have an understandibly cute nickname for me... Empress."  She wasn't sure he would pick up on the reference to Emperor Kahless.

Waeve frowned.

"You're not a fraud. Anyone who thinks you are needs to reevaluate their opinion. You're one of the best, most experienced officers I know.

Erika's expression turned deadpan.  "They see me as something of a fraud." 

She turned her gaze away from him.  "We have to remember, every Starfleet officer goes through the Academy and learns about the NX project... the beginnings of Starfleet.  I'm sure, to them, I am at best a relic, at worst a reminder of a time long since past."  She sighed.  "Think of what it must be like for a person of Romulan decent to serve under a commanding officer that fought in the Earth-Romulan war..."

Oh? Why might that be Erika? Kids these days?

 

Waeve smiled gently at his joke.

"Honestly?"  She paused, then spoke even softer.  "I'm finding it rather difficult to fit in with the crew..."

"How've you been, Captain? Everything going well?"

Waeve noticed the awkward posture, but waited to see if she'd tell him what was on her mind or if He'd have to pry it out of her.

Erika put up a hand up declining the offer with a small smile.  "I'm trying to maintain my photonic figure."

She sat, looking awkward and uncomfortable, but revealing nothing as to what had caused her posture.

Waeve Smiled.

"Captain. Come in come in. Have a seat. Can I get you something to drink?"

Waeve knew she'd probably refuse the drink, there was no need for her to pretend to be something she wasn't here.

The doors opened and Erika stepped over the threshold, allowing the doors to shut before looking at Blackfire without moving further into the room. She was clearly hesitant, though it was also evident that she was attempting to appear nonplussed. "You wanted to see me, Admiral?"

At the sound of the chime, Waeve looked up.

"Computer, Lights to normal."

He straightened his jacket and settled back in his chair.

"Come."

Erika nodded as the young ensign ushered her across the Blackstar's bridge and motioned toward the ready room door.  She paused a moment, then brushed the LCARS panel to sound the soft chime.
