"Yes, sir." He said very formally as the captain left the controls in his hands. He looked down to the desk-like structure he sat in. The chair was extremely comfortable, and the desk folded over to sit beside it when not in use. He looked down at it and tapped his temple ever so softly, a display showed on the desktop and had three options.
- Pilot's Channel
- Faculty Channel
- PA System
Each choice had a little padlock symbol beside it, showing it was locked off and required a password. The Pilot Channel had a microphone symbol over it, showing it required a voice recognition password to be accessed. Only Captain Holliday and Riley could access that channel, but they could invite certain faculty members for a private consultation and update if required. He selected the PA System. Another screen popped up, labeled "password" and a keyboard popped beneath it. Tuck quickly typed out the pass code after clearing his voice. His voice issued calmly from each room and hallway on the ship.
"Ladies and Gentlemen this is your co-pilot speaking; do not forget, all staff members must pick up their faculty-issued hands-free communication devices before take off. That is all, thank you." He said before opening the options menu and joining the Faculty Channel, awaiting the check-ins of others on the ship. He relaxed in his chair and reached down, opening a small compartment before pulling out a can of soda. He took a moment to relax in his amazing seat, paying attention to all around him. The young pilot rubbed his temple for a moment and it shifted to the option that shrunk out the display and brought the screen into his eye, where he could see the space out in front of him.
The speed was semi-transparent, as the ship was not moving, and the distance and ETA were both grayed out as he had not programmed their destination yet. He blinked and the display showed on the desk again, he plotted the coordinates he was given for Tera and the distance popped up. It was quite a ways away. He then pushed his fingers to his temple and spread them apart, it brought up a map blue-print style map of the ship on the desk. He adjusted it on the desk to fit the surface perfectly before he put his palm in the center and lifted it. The map became three dimensional and he began to look over everything, make sure he knew all he needed about it. He pressed it down again and pushed the map away. Another came up, but it was indecipherable until he pulled it up, revealing a map between the ship and Tera and the plotted path they would be taking. He studied it for a moment in boredum and then squished it down and tapped his temple, shutting down the device that allowed him to view all the astounding images he had.
He leaned back in his seat and took a sip from the can in his hand, breathing evenly as he closed down the desk in front of him and rested his free hand on his armrest.
