The Starboard Bow
What is the Starboard Bow?
Potted flowers and trees add a touch of nature so often lacking on small star-ships. To the left of the bar, a singular window reveals the stars to those who wish to gaze upon them. Other amenities include dartboards, and a bookshelf with tomes donated by members of the Arrow Crew.
Earth's most famous mythical archer, an outlaw who redistributed the taxed incomes of the Feudal lords back to the common people.
|Due to it's location on the ship, the room has slanted left and back walls, supported by beams painted in contrasting shades of green. White string lights line the room, giving the space additional illumination.|
Directly in front of them is semi-circular sectional couch that seats eight with a wood and glass coffee table located within easy reach of everyone.
On the immediate right and left of the arch are brown faux-leather sofas that seat five apiece and ottomans stationed in the middle. The right one is lodged snugly against the wall by two ballista bolts, whilst the left one is off-set from the sloping wall and support pillars between which are four arrows in the midway point between them.
A pair of dart boards on the front wall are equidistant from the arch and their respective side walls.
Another tree is to the right of the rightmost chair, and to the left of a painting of a tree on the right wall. A few feet back from the leftmost chair is the fourth and final tree, across from the second support beam on the left wall, and the beginning of the well stocked bookcase.
To the direct right of the first back pillar is a parallelogram port looking out into outer space. Its border painted the same color as the lighter part of the pillars to contrast with the main paint scheme, more than half of it's dimensions encroaching on the beginnings of the bar . The space above the space window is decorated with two sets of three arrows each, that face left. Not far exitward, the first of four flower boxes of rectangular shape floats overhead on a force field.
The bow-shaped bar itself looks like a squared off semi-circle. It is two-toned, a lightish brown on the body, and a dark wood that matches the floor (reminiscent of Mahogany) on the bar top. Behind the bar is an open space that can offers a lot of movement room for whomever is working behind it. On the back wall behind the bar moving left to right, is the first of two drinks cabinets, the second back pillar, a prep station with a black replicator and an espresso machine, and the second drink cabinet. Around the bar are stationed a dozen stools made of the same wood as the bar body, centered on the bar is a sign with the establishment's logo, flanked by two more float flower boxes, angled away from it. To the right of the bar is the final back pilla, with a final flower box mirroring the position of the one on the opposite end of the bar.
The Creation Story
The day before departing DS 224, Serinus began interviewing for bartenders, giving the best four out of seven hour long interviews apiece, hoping to give two spots so they wouldn't have to work seven days a week. The first person he interviewed was a Centuarian from a small colony near the Romulan Neutral Zone. Her name was Melissa Dane, and she had a lot of bartending experience in many different settings. She was confident and instantly likable, and on top of that, she had arrived 15 minutes early. When asked why with all of her experience, she wanted to work on the Arrow, she said it was because she missed the family aspect of being on a small ship (her father had served on the California Class Anaheim, and it had been the happiest time in her childhood.) 
Now Serving Trouble
During the events of The Raiders of the Lost Claw, Petty Officer Velina Frell located the Chalnoth child intruders heading toward The Bow. Lt. JG Manx quickly tapped his combadge to summon a security team, and stepped toward the turbolift  before he could depart, Commander Roxy Wilde stepped in to join him. Arriving outside of the Bow, the two were joined by the comedic relief, Hitchcock and Scully, Security's most inept enlistedmen. They were dressed in ancient, and ill-fitting riot gear. Scully's lack of muzzle control saw Commander Wilde grab his barrel and force it down, and then got him a dressing down by Commander Wilde , and Manx both.
Wilde went in, and began to scan the area. She deciphered that someone was re-writing the Arrow's code. First Hallack, the XO of the friendly Chalnoth ship, the Saracen showed up, and the two aged Seurity staff aimed their phasers at him. He explained that he found out that the children were missing and had come to search for them. Wilde told Hallack that she believed that the children weren't actually there, and that some kind of interference was messing with their sensors, and reasoned that the Saracen's sensors might be suffering from the same effect. After a bit of deliberation, the replicator suddenly started making an unusual noise, and Manx turned to look at it. To his horror, a concrete goop of some kind began to pour out of the machine, over the control pad, down the wall and onto the floor. He ran a tri-corder scan and determined that the goop had all the prerequisite bioelectric data to spawn the mechanical insects that had inhabitted the Arrow when it was first found adrift in the Aavaro Wilds the crew of the USS Juneau. He quickly ordered an evacuation of the room, having to assure Hallack that the children were not there, and then called the bridge to get the room sealed.
