The chime pierced the silence of the flag officer's quarters aboard the Alliance battleship Kilimanjaro, and Vice Admiral Harriet Spencer's azul eyes opened begrudgingly before the chime called again. Sighing, the five foot nine woman rolled to her side and glanced up at the communication panel at her bedside, tapping the glowing accept key and designating voice only. After all, it wasn't right for an admiral to talk to her subordinates while half naked.
"Spencer, go ahead." She said and noted the grogginess of her own voice as she checked the time. Zero two hundred. No wonder she felt like she had just fallen off a sunderhorse.
"Admiral, I don't mean to wake you but we have a situation." Spencer quirked an eyebrow at the voice on the other end. It was Captain Kuritz, Kilimanjaro's CO who, like Spencer,

The key to what we left behind,
Hidden deep within the dark,
A single final glowing spark,
Our perfect everlasting mark,
Buried safely on the Ark.

So we stood there side by side,
To stop the unrelenting tide,
Holding back the endless Flood,
That sought to taste creations blood.
And so the rings we did ignite,
To burn it all and end the fight,
It purged the worlds and all their skies,
And brought about our own demise.

Of every species - every nation,
Yet I pray you stand our station,
Loyal guards to all-creation.

Inquisitor, Marie Gelinde. He finished, smiling. His Honor Inquisitor Lord Dietris gave this to me, to give to you. Youve received all three recommendations necessary to become a full member of the Holy Ordos. He placed the polished icon in his former interrogators hands.
Unable to bring words to her mouth, Marie Victora Gelinde stared down at the rosette. Words could not describe the mixture of excitement, surprise and wonder she felt.
Ah, I remember the day old Marek petitioned me. A week after that, I was made Inquisitor. Justul sat down in his favorite study chair, and sighed happily as the memories rolled in.
Marie finally gathered up the will to break her eyes from the rosette and speak. Who recomm
