:One by one the officers assembled in my ready room, Carter as always was late. I drummed my fingers on my desk, until a rather breathless Ensign Carter appeared:
ROSS:Nice of you to make an appearance Ensign.

ROSS:Ensign Carter, Lt's Brown, Malcom and Trix,I have had the honour of knowing you all now for several months, you are all outstanding officers and a credit to this crew.
:I open the first box, and pull out the pip, and pin it to Trix's collar:
ROSS:Lt Trix, I hear by promote you to full Lieutenant.
:I shake Trix's hand and move past his obviously shocked face, and on to Tamar:
ROSS:Congratulations, you are hereby promoted to full Lieutenant.
:I pin the next pip onto Tamar's collar, and let out the slightest of smiles.I shake her hand and move on to Jen:
ROSS:Well done Doctor, you are hereby promoted to Full Lieutenant.
:I shake her hand on move onto Carter:
ROSS:Well Ensign it was either this or have you court martialed, and I did'nt quite have enough evidence for that, so this was the only option. Well done, you are here by promoted to Lt junior grade.
:I take a step back:
ROSS:Congratulations one and all, you all worked hard for this, well done. Dismissed.
