Elias Toby 
Map Room - Deck 2 - Battlestar Orion
Dominating the room is the large bottom-lit map table in the very center. Ten feet across and eight feet the other way, the table can gather a large number of people around it while still accommodating enlisted and support personnel in the small riser seating behind the table. The risers are done in single-piece desk sections that run the width of the seating area and have small reporting displays built into them along with communications ports for headphones. At the head of the room are two very large LED displays that can have almost anything put on them, including projections of what is on the map table. A single computer at the support seating controls this and in the rear of the room is a large, locked case that holds maps and table models.

Asking after Captain Gray gets one directed towards the Map Room, where the Intel Officer usually claims a desk. And there Elias is today, sitting in a top-tier spot in the otherwise deserted room, pouring over a scattering of papers and photographs while taking notes. An ashtray, littered with butts, is near at hand and there's still a telltale haze of blue smoke hanging around him. Either the smoking lamp is lit or he just isn't worried about getting busted for lighting up, as he's made no great effort to hide the fact that he's been smoking.

Toby does not generally find himself on Deck 2 unless it's laundry day, and thats so close to the stairwell that it doesn't really count in his head. As such directions are requested, and greatfully received before he find himself ducking through the hatch into the maproom. His initial fear of not knowing who to ask for is eliviated somewhat as he spies only one person present, and then even more so as he approaches and notes that they're wearing captain's pips. So far, so good. "Captain Gray?" he asks, when what appears to be a suitable pause in the officer's note taking occurs, "I was wondering if it might be possible to have a word sir?"

Elias's eyes flick up, the young Captain not really focusing on the person before him. "Yes?" From his short tone one might get the impression that he is interrupted like this a lot. But the tall crewman before him doesn't seem to be anyone he recognizes, and this gives Elias pause. "Sorry," he takes a second to study Toby more thoroughly. "What can I do for you, Crewman?"

Toby is still not entirely sure it's the Captain that he needs to be talking to, but he doesn't let that stop him. "It's about an investigation that Captain Llywarch was running," he starts, "into Lieutenant Colonel Sheperd and his actions. Only with her being elsewhere for a while and no other JAG officers onboard, I was wondering who would be running it now Sir?"

Elias's mouth tightens as he hears the subject for this interruption, but he spends a moment considering his answer he responds. "That's not really my department, sorry. I would guess she handed it off to someone else in the JAG office." He glances down at the papers on his desk and flips the top one over, somewhat covering the photos and notes he's been going over. Pictures of Ceres and Knox, as well as several other men and women, might have been noted before they were covered. "Do you have some information about the case?"

"No sir," Toby answers, looking faintly disapointed in the answer given, although not perhaps particularly surprised. He then goes on to explain a little more, "I brought the case to her attention initally and she said recently that she was about ready to issue a warrent. I am looking to find out who has taken over responsibility and do what I can to make sure it isn't accidentally overlooked what with everything else going on." Or buried, of course, but he's not about to openly express that one.

Elias nods his understanding. "It could be that she's passed the case off to the MPs, if she was ready to bring up charges. You might ask them." He weights the matter for a moment. "This was a bit before my time, but given the … strong feelings people seem to have for the former CAG, I don't think he'll be forgotten."

Toby gives a single, slow nod at the mention of the MPs, not an answer he seems to particularly like, although probably one he should have expected. "I'll make further enquiries with them then sir," he replies, "thank you for your time." There's another nod at the comment about Sheperd not being forgotten, although this one is more definite, and forceful. It would seem that he at least has no intention of letting the ex-CAG go easy.

"Quite alright," Elias replies evenly. "Sorry I couldn't be of more help." He seems more than ready to get back to whatever paperwork he was on before, though. "Good luck with the MPs."
