[USS Phoenix - Engineering Department]

It wasn't an uncommon thing to happen, the captain of the ship coming down to the Engineering department to help out with the workload when it was particularly heavy. Archangel had come up into the command levels through Engineering, even being thought to be one of the best Chief Engineers in the tenth fleet.

So, in order for Gabriel to be able to take some time off, Archangel had volunteered to be the missing body in Engineering while they did some upgrades on the EPS network and gel packs. Simple maintenance, but it still needed done.

So, with her red uniform protected by a yellow overall, Arch had strapped on her trusty toolbelt and was waiting by the jefferies tube hatch, waiting for her work partner to arrive.

[Main Engineering]

Leela rushed through through the engine room trying to make it on time. With Gabe on shore leave and the Captain in charge of the engine room she knew begin late would be a much greater sin then it typically was. Truth be told, Gabe let a lot side. However, it was mostly because we all put in extra time and were damned good engineers.

She saw the captain waiting near the Jeffries tube. Leela grabbed her tool kit as she ran past her station. With her tool kit in hand she approached the captains location and a typical mischievous grin popped onto her face. Leela always looked up to something, even when she wasn't.

"Sir, I'm sorry, I hope you weren't waiting long." She patted her toolkit. "I'm all set. What do you say we show those EPS systems whose boss."

At the sound of someone approaching, Archangel looked up from checking that she had all of her tools and that Seika hadn't nicked some of them again to see that Leela was the one making her way over. The change in her expression, the slight hardening and forced neutrality of her features, was subtle, but not unnoticeable to someone who knew her well.

"Ensign," she said evenly in greeting. As much as she wanted to be able to get along with everyone on her crew, this was one crewmember that she didn't think that was ever going to happen with. Oh, she could put aside the fact that she had encountered and therefore knew about the existence of Nemesis, but it was that that the Trill was working closely with Gabriel in a domain that used to be hers. "I trust you're ready to go?"

"Yes Captain." It felt odd using ranks in the engine room. It always seemed so removed from the bridge. There was a certain formality that existed up there that never truly existed down in engineering.

The captains words seemed short. The Trill could sense the tension but couldn't put her finger on the reasons behind it. She decided not to address because whatever it was would only complicate matters. And ever since the day she came on board Leela couldn't help but to felt that she had complicated matters on that ship. She felt that she had been firmly entrenched in any and all of the dramatic happenings. The worse part was she hadn't done it intentionally. Events seemed to have a way of dragging her in.

"I went ahead and put some extra gel packs in my toolkit. Hopefully we won't be needing them."

The use of ranks while in Engineering got Archangel's hackles up. She had never had much use for them while she had been Chief back on the Discovery, even threatening to string up any junior officers who seemed determined to call her 'ma'am' all the damned time. However, this was one officer that she was willing to make an exception for. The addition of rank made it extremely clear who was superior.

"As have I," she replied to Leela's statement about carrying extra gel packs. While she was fairly sure that she had passed on the habit of storing gel packs close to the hatches that needed them in the jefferies tubes to Gabriel while he had been serving under her, she wasn't about to take the chance of not having enough. Turning to the hatch, she pulled off the cover and set it aside before gesturing toward the entrance into the dreaded Jefferies tube. "After you." There was no way she was letting Leela behind her.

Leela couldn't help but to feel that Captain was not her biggest fan. She couldn't figure it out, though, they had had very little interaction up to this point. She attempted to shrug the nagging feeling but she failed.

"Of course sir." She crouched and made her way into the Jeffries tube.

Once Leela had crawled a sufficient distance in to the tube, Archangel followed, keeping a wary eye on the Trill. Romulans were, by nature, a very paranoid people and she was certainly no exception.

It didn't take them long to reach the first junction where a couple of gel packs needed replacing. Sitting back on her heels, she removed the hatch before pulling her tricorder from her toolbelt and starting to scan inside.

Leela moved through the crawl space and heard the captain stop behind her. She realized that her tricorder must of picked up gel packs that needed replacement. She pulled that hatch away exposing a black gel pack. Leela chuckled. "I get I can guess which one needs replaced." She pulled a new pack out of her tool kit. She was trying to lighten the mood a bit, but she wasn't optimistic that it would work.

Archangel didn't dignify what she guessed was supposed to be a humerous remark with an answer. Strangely enough, she had put her sense of humour on a shelf back in Engineering when she had realised that she was going to have to crawl into the Jefferies tubes with the Trill.

She pulled out the the burnt out gelpack, giving it a quick scan with her tricorder to try to figure out just why it had blown, in case anything needed adjustment, but there wasn't much to see. Just wear and tear. Just in case, though, she slipped it into a pouch on her belt to take back to the main department and run a more detailed scan on it. She then raised an eyebrow at Leela, waiting for her to get on with it and replace the pack.

While Captain T'Koris scanned the junction Leela contemplated the reactions of her commanding officer. He joke didn't spark so much as a smirk. Although Romulans weren't well known to have a strong sense of humor she would have anticipated a chuckle of some sort. "Captain, is everything okay? Sir, with all do respect, have I done something wrong?"

Archangel looked up from her scans with a decidedly unamused expression on her face. The expression didn't change for a handful of heartbeats beyond her blinking once. Then, apparently deciding that the ensign's question didn't need a response, went back to her scans. No, those questions didn't need answering.

The lack of an answer didn't bring any comfort to the Trill. She still couldn't get rid of the feeling that she had done something wrong, but she knew that wasn't the case. Leela had had very little interaction with her commanding officer. "Sir...?" She added awaiting a response to her inquiry.

Once again, Archangel ignored the query, snapping her tricorder shut and stowing it back in her tool belt. The Trill seemed to be particularly interested in knowing why she had a problem with her, but Archangel had no intention of relieving her curiosity.

"I think we're done with this hatch," she said evenly, placing the cover back on it. "We should move on to the next one."

" Okay, I guess we're done." The Trill muttered under her breathe, the words soaked with sarcasm. She wasn't certain if the Captain had heard her or not, but she wasn't very worried about it either. She moved off of heels and made her way to the next junction. She pulled of the hatch so the Captain could scan the Gel packs inside.

What Leela may have failed to take into account was the fact that Romulans, like their Vulcan cousins, have very acute hearing. Archangel looked over her shoulder, shooting a dark glare at the Trill.

"That's quite enough, Ensign," she said, using her 'talking to Seika when she's taken apart something important' voice before starting to crawl along the tube again, heading for the next gelpack that needed replacing.

If looks could kill. At least I know she can speak. She thought, she decided not to mutter again. Her hearing was better than she had expected.

"Understood sir."

What choice did she have. She couldn't get to snippy with her commanding officer. Well at least not more so then she had already done. But she wanted to return the favor.

"Good," came the curt reply. Archangel continued along the tube until she came across a section of the EPS network that needed maintenance work done on it. Pulling of the hatch again, she seemed to be pointedly ignoring Leela's very existence as she took out her tricorder again and started to reroute the plasma flow so that she could start the maintenance itself.

Leela pulled several tools out and laid them out so she would be ready to pass them to the Captain when she needed them. Unfortunately, the Trill seemed to have trouble knowing exactly when to shut up. It was probably one of her greatest flaws. She couldn't seem to just let things go.

"Captain, what have I done? I would like to address this so I can fix it."

Archangel looked up at Leela with one raised eyebrow, apparently still unamused. It did occur to her briefly to bring up the true reason she was cold-shouldering this ensign, but on the other hand, she really didn't want to. She didn't want to give Leela the satisfaction of knowing just how far under the Romulan's skin she had managed to wriggle.

"So far, you've helped me repair a gel pack," she replied, as if speaking to a particularly dense cadet. "And the only way we're going to fix this is to reroute the flow so that neither of us take plasma to the face while we upgrade the network."

Frustration was written all over the Trills face. The frustration quickly was moving towards anger as the Captain belittled her more. From Leela's perspective she had 400 years under her belt and was recalibrating engines and maintaining power distribution systems a hundred years before this woman was a glimmer in her parents' eyes. She was afraid that her temper would get the better of her. For that moment, however, she held it together. One could only speculate what the next moment would hold.

"Aknowledged, Captain." She tapped a few buttons on the small console inside the panel. "Power has been rerouted. The conduit is safe to access." She glared at the Captain through the entire sequence. She never broke eye contact, not even for a moment.

Although Leela's glare was an obvious element to her side, Archangel quite calmly ignored it. Alidar had subjected her to worse during the times she had to stay with him and certainly Sovereign had trained her well in that respect. For all Leela's years of experience, her current host was still an amateur.

With the flow rerouted, Archangel scanned it one last time to make sure before she reached in and decoupled the conduit. She had received probably more than her fair share of plasma burns in her life as an Engineer and was in no hurry to add more to her tally. She was aware that the Trill was, somehow, trying to intimidate her into answering the questions, but, as a mother, captain and intelligence agent, one ensign was not going to do the trick.

Leela was concerned but wouldn't let Captain T'Koris have the pleasure of seeing it written all over her face. She still couldn't fathom what she had against her. The last performance evaluation she received from Gabe was exemplary. It had to be something other than work. Leela pulled the decoupler from her tools and passed it to T'Koris. She knew she would need it to break the seal on the gel pack. Then she pulled out a new unit and placed it on the deck plating. "So how are the kids? You should hear the stories Gabe tells about them. Little parts littering the floor from something that has been tore apart." She let out a slight nervous chuckle. "I can relate. I had some kids just like that." She looked to the captain to see if she would show some kind of reaction, any kind of reaction.

Archangel's expression didn't change as she started to scrape out some of the plasma residue that had gathered in the join between the two conduits. It was important to ensure that these cracks were cleaned out regularly in order to maintain smooth operations.

If only 'smooth operations' could be applied to the team currently maintaining those conduits. There was a definite twitch in the young Romulan's jaw as Leela mentioned Gabriel, especially as she had used not his rank, nor his full name, but the diminutive of his name. That indicated that they were quite close. Although she hadn't managed to keep that muscle from twitching, she was stubbornly refusing to look at the Trill.

"The girls are fine," she replied, a little more curtly than was probably required. Don't you talk about my family...

She could tell that she had struck a nerve. Perhaps mentioning her family wasn't the best idea. But if the Captain was going to choose to be upset and bitter about something then Leela figured that she may as well enjoy herself a little. She had a knack for crawling under people's skins when advantageous.

She let out a slight chuckle. "Gabe was telling me that when he came home the other day the replicator was scattered in pieces all over the floor." Her chuckle grew to laughter as she recalled the story he had told.

Given the sensitivity of a Romulan's hearing meant that it took quite a bit to be able to tune out any kind of annoying sound, and scraping the gunk out of a EPS network joint was not helping Archangel to filter out the irritating noise coming out of Leela's mouth.

"Yes, I was there when that happened. I think we can skip having to listen to some one who wasn't there try to tell me what it was like."
