Our captain is very particular about his mechanics. Due to a rather 'special' condition, he is frequently in need of repairs and limb calibration. He's tough on new crew members. Few can withstand his scrutiny for long, and in this time of war it has become very difficult to find qualified engineers. However, the new hire seems to be a good fit so far. The captain has given her a hard time, as expected, but she is confident in her abilities and holding her ground. I think the captain is really quite pleased with her performance, especially after his squeaky arm socket was fixed. He's just bit reluctant to express gratification too openly.
