Personal log 160203:

How do you polish a pip? It will need to look spotless. Because I'm joining the Thunderbird! I hope my cousin can make it to see my first day. But if he can't, I will make sure to send him a missive through his husband, who is the Thunderbird's CMO. I hope the Captain of the ship will look on me favorably. I'm so nervous!

But I need to breathe. I know my work, I know how to help. And that will need to be enough. I will be open to learning. Cousin Rodney made that clear. To be effective on a starship, you need to be open to new ideas and new skills.

Take a deep breath, Daniel. You will be called to the bridge soon.

I am ready.

Personal Log 160205:

I felt awkward on my first day as Ensign. I kept trying to find my place, and not get in the way of those more experiences than me. I was glad to gather things for Cousin John, as it gave me purpose and something that I couldn't screw up.

I am doing my best to remember to call him Dr. Sheppard, but he's been Cousin John for almost my entire life. I hope he won't be upset if I slip up, I'll just do the best I can, and see where the flow of work takes me.

I don't know what to make of the rest of the crew yet, but they don't seem like bad people. And John wouldn't work for awful people.
