I had a heck of a surprise yesterday, I was given command of the Copernicus. I am now in command of a science vessel of my own, what will we find out there? Who will we meet? There is only one way to find out, and that's to go out there and see what is there.
Our first mission will be to chart the six nearby systems and map them and send the detail to Starfleet stellar cartography.
As I walk throughout the ship it looks a little different to me now, compared to when I was only a department head. The features are still the same as I walk these hallways, But I can feel the change that is within me. The difference now is that I AM now responsable for the actions of of my ship and crew.
I am guessing that this is normal for ones first command of a starship. A department head is in charge of his or her own department and that's where your responsibilty ends. However as a Starship Commander, you are responsable for every man, woman and department aboard your ship. I now know the true meaning of the weight of command.
I will do my best to bring honor to the name Copernicus and help expand the knowledge of the federation and it's allies, because knowledge is no good unless it is shared with others. I wanted to write down these
self reflections while they were still fresh in my mind.
Lieutenant Commander Junjie Han. Now Commanding Officer of the USS Copernicus. End log.
