OOC: What ranking system are we going by? I suggest we use navy ranks (what with a Captain and all). Also why we keeping it below captain?

Name: Jonas Einarsson
Nationality: Icelandic
Position: Chief Navigator
Rank: Lieutenant Commander (rank immediately below Captain)

In dock at the new "Space Port" orbiting Earth, Jonas is making some last minute calculations on his computer and star maps before the crew leaves in a matter of hours.

Secures himself into his place at the navigation station.

"I've pre-programmed our flight path to the sun, Sir. It'll take us two days to reach there, upon passing Mercury, you'll need to put engines to full and from there, we'll sling-shot around the sun and it's clear sailing to Alpha Proxima."

OOC: I know we said Alpha-Centauri, but Alpha Proxima is actually the nearest star to us in that system, so figures to go there!

As he exits the evelavtor, an automated intercom message occurs in his ear peice

"As a saftey percausion, heat sheilds have been enabled for passenger saftey, you may not pass unless you have a special thermo-suit."

"Computer, overide heat sheild."

"Negative. Elevator door must be sealed."

"Seal it, then."

"Elevator Door Sealed. Would you like to proceed?"

"Yes."

The heat sheild goes down and he runs into the engine coolant area.

"Engine to bridge, requesting acess code to overide engine rank protocal."

"Granted. Its 1B37D"

As he types it in, the engines start to cool down, and soon back to normal

"Whew."

After an hour or so, the ship begins its approach to Mercury. Jonas turns to the captain.

"OK, Sir, we need to bring it close to Mercury so we can slingshot to the sun. We're also gonna need engines to full! I'll get onto Osman about it."

Jonas gets up from his seat and heads towards the engine rooms. He runs (or floats) into Osman just outside engine control.

"Hey Terry, you gotta get those engines to full, we gotta be travelling above 50,000km per second by the time we slingshot around Mercury. Then you're gonna need to give us another boost when we do the same thing around the sun. If not, we're gonna miss the additional thrust and our trip will get 3 years added to it."
