"Captain, you have to pull yourself together. You can't just sit here and drink away your sorrows."

"I mean, it's not like shes the only woman in the universe"

Ryan just necked back another shot and ignored Tyran and Kiras attempt to try and cheer him up.

"Captain, I think your way over your limit." said Kira looking at the many glasses scattered in front of Ryan. Ryan had got to the point where he wouldnt be able to stand up even if he tried.

[Captain Evans, this is Lieutenant Commander Fredericks, come in please.]

It didn't even seem as though Ryan realised his communicator was going off.

[Captain Evans, respond]

"Commander Kira here speaking on behalf of Captain Evans, what can I do for you Commander?"

[The stations long range sensors have picked up an unidentified vessel heading on an intercept course at transwarp speed. AS the Ronin is the only ship in range, can you take her out to investigate?]

"Stand by"

Kira looked at Tyran and then down at Ryan who slumped and fell of his chair.

"I think your commanding this one Kira" said Tyran

"I think you may be right. Commander Fredericks, we will be underway shortly."

[Thankyou Commander.]

Tyran and Kira got up and headed for the door.

"What should we do about the Captain?" asked Kira suddenly realising theyd left him on the floor.

"Dinara, come in" said Tyran tapping his com badge.

[Yes hun, what is it?]

"Where are you?"

[I'm on my way to meet you now.]

"Good, listen, Kira and I have to take the Ronin out to investigate an unidentified ship. Can you come here anyway and look after the Captain?"

[Whats wrong with him?]

"He's had a little too much to drink to say the least."

[I'll be there shortly. Dinara out]

Kira pulled Ryan back up onto the chair and left with Tyran for the Ronin.
