The character is introduced doing something that puts them out of easy contact.
Better name ideas? Basically, the character, usually a high ranking leader, is introduced when they're doing something fun or recreational (at least by their standards) that also requires a subordinate, colleague or even higher up to come fetch them in person. Possibilities include but are not limited to: swimming, mountain climbing, using a holodeck / VR set, tending a farm or for double trope points any of the above after retirement. Expect them to be huffy and grumpy at the interruption, demand the person leave (possibly even threatening violence) and insist they come back when it's not their off time. Of course, they'll explain they're only doing it because they have a "bad situation," which in all fairness does merit immediate attention. Contrast 10-Minute Retirement.
