"Shakedown Shenanigans" is a Star Trek Online fanfic by StarSword, written for the "Assuming Command" prompt of the Arc Forums' Unofficial Literary Challenge #4: "The Return of the Revenge of the Unofficial LC of DOOM!"
Kanril Eleya, a newly minted captain in Starfleet, arrives at 40 Eridani A Starfleet Construction Yards with her senior staff to accept her new command, the USS Bajor. Over the next two days, she deals with paperwork and snipe hunts relating to her new position, and then turns the shakedown cruise into an impromptu live-fire exercise when it's interrupted by a distress call from a freighter.
