Thank you for the warm welcome and the hospitality of your city. Just to clarify though, the captain of the Fenris is the only commissioned officer in the ROD group. Captain Bernard is a Navy Captain (O-6). The ship’s master chief petty officer is a very senior enlisted man (E-9), and the senior NCO of the Marine detachment is also an enlisted man (E-6).

“No trouble at all with the Karma Naskis” Bernard reports. “We found them to be a very pleasant people in a beautiful country. I expect that we will be seeing a lot more of them in the future.”

“Very nice palace that you have here” the Marine sergeant adds. “Is this a remnant of the city’s British colonial past?”

Don't tell anyone that the DIS is writing the script. It's full of subliminal messages and heavily veiled propaganda. The housewife revolution is coming!

Buddy, if you're married, it's already arrived. How else would I know ANYTHING about a Hallmark Channel? Just keep saying over and over to yourself, "It's not written for me. It's not written for me."

The Officers of the New Canadian Armed Forces at the table looked at each other with a confused look on their faces, even the Canadian Sergeants standing at the dining halls entrance stares at each other in puzzlement over the RODs statement about their officer ranks.

(Kim Davidson): "Anyway, Yes this Mansion is a left over from Canada's colonial past, when we where still part of the British Empire yes."

(Admiral Carson): "en-enlist men as officers?"

Sergeants are NCOs. Chief petty officers are NCOs. NCO = Non Commissioned Officer. NCOs are enlisted ranks.

the ROD master chief and staff sergeant are NCOs. Non Commissioned Officers. Enlisted
ranks. Just like the Canadian sergeants are.

The ROD captain is a commissioned officer just like the Canadian admirals and generals.Officer ranks.

(Admrial Carson): "Im not to familiar with the RODs military rank system, But here in the New Canadian Military the rank system is.. a little different then what your used to."

(Kim Davidson): "Anyway, Im sure you are aware of our problems with a...certain plant, who smoke fills the air here in Victoria?"

(Lieutenant Peters): "Yes its quite a awful smell, this...Cannabis as its called, is causing quite a nuisance."

We're familiar with weed in the ROD. It hasn't been legalized there, but possession of it is not enforced. The cops only go after the big traffickers for the most part. A dude smoking joint usually isn't considered much of a threat to anyone.

I understand that you have a beef with the Karma Naskis over pot. What does that have to do with the ROD?

(Kim Davidson): "It has nothing to do with you guys, It just that we had some issues with smuggling of this drug for sometime now, since its easy to cross into New Canada from Karma."

(Admrial Carson): "The Royal Canadian Navy is also concerned over these "Stealth Corvettes" that the KDF has in their Navy, we still can't figure out how to best deal with these types of ships, we don't even know how stealth works."

Perhaps the best way to deal with them is to work with them. You guys share an island, how about if you work together. get over the pot issue and start improving relations with Karma Naskis. Start doing some joint patrols and exercises.

The crew of the Fenris would like to thank the people of Victoria for their hospitality. We had a great visit, but it is time for the battlewagon and her crew to return home. We're getting the boys loaded up and once we have full accountability of all personnel we will depart Victoria Harbor.

Well I hope you had a good time here in Victoria BC, as for New Canada working with Karma-naskis that remains to be seen, if they cease the production of Cannabis in their country then we will be in a better position to talk.

CFB Esquimult, Pacific Offices of the New Canadian Armed Forces.

(Admiral Carson): "Well... the Meeting with the ROD Officers went as well as we hoped."

(General Thornton): "Indeed, not a single problem with them at all, though im sure of the idea of having our country work with these...Reefer people, Would not benefit our military at the slightest if our troops are too doped up on Cannabis to be combat effective."

(Admiral Carson): "Yes of course, already Karmanaskis asked GDLS-NC to purchase our LAV III's as part of a "Joint Venture" with the KDF, which im glad that did not follow through, it would be embarrassing to the companies image to see such fine New Canadian made military vehicles with a Marijuana Leaf on them."

(Captain Albright): "I wonder what else that Idiot of a Karmanaskis PM would come up with next as part of his election campaign that im hearing about."

(Admiral Carson): "Im not sure but we will watch and see."

(General Thornton): "Indeed."
