As I said I'll take care of it myself.
Let me get this straight. There are two possibilities here I can come up with.
1.) You're going to jump the chain of command straight to the top and slam the commanding officer with a problem you won't let your second deal with while she's currently dealing with other more important issues that compelled her to leave her second in full command. I'm sure that will go over well.
2.) You're going to empower yourself without consulting the second or the C.O. and do what you think best, making some sort of post. Somehow I don't think that will go over well either.
Might I suggest sending your solution to the second, letting him appraise it, offer suggestions and come to a mutual resolution? After all Nanofreak is the only one other than Radne that has an inkling of where the plot is going providing you valuable insight into the future! Actual, real-life, prognostication!
