[Deck Three - First Officer's Personal Quarters]

The perks of being a command-level officer.... Nevir stepped out of the water shower, dripping with liquid goodness that gave the clean feeling a sonic shower could never really do.  Brushing off the excess water, Nevir wrapped himself in a towel, and grabbed a robe, before walking out to his room. 

He was taking a well-deserved rest after the harrowing adventures he already had, and hoping that the more mundane week they had would last a bit longer.  Being the vessel in uncharted territory tends to give more action than a routine science mission. 

Lost in his thoughts, Nevir was dressed before he realized it, but kept the robe on all the same.  Sitting down at his console, he decided that he might as well check up on his science research.  He was on call, and while the Captain was on the bridge, he was not required to be there.  At least not for another couple of hours.

[Sickbay - NPC Evan Buehler]

Most people didn't care to linger any longer than necessary, so as soon as he had said clear of contamination, Ardy split. -/\-Buehler to Lieutenant Jaeger, please report to sickbay when you have a moment.-/\-

Evan scratched his head, wondering how to break the news to the flight officer when she arrived. It was nothing urgent, and he wasn't entirely positive, but he wanted to run a quick test. And in any case, she needed to know. Poor girl probably didn't have a clue. Not that it was his business, Jaeger wasn't seeing anyone, and she didn't seem the type to sleep around... So, what to do, what to say? But it was a conundrum better addressed sooner than later.

PERSONNEL LOUNGE

Inzjana sat a a table in the corner of the room facing the bar, trying to be as inconspicuous as possible sipping her Coca-Cola. Not your typical Vulcan drink, but Inzjana was not your typical Vulcan, being half Romulan.

It had been a week since their foray to the planet of thieves and for the most part Inzjana had returned back to her usual and comfortable routine, after all, what was life without routine - interesting probably, she thought. Her usual day started off with her getting woken up screaming from nightmares getting only one hour of the usual two Vulcans need every rotation - solar day - had a sonic shower, fed herself and her rabbit and at some point got dressed in a clean uniform and made her to Science Lab 2 to continue her research and usual duties. At lunch she would make her way down to the lounge and order usually a Pepperoni and Cheese Pizza and a Coca-Cola.

No one actually asked her why she never ate Vulcan style food, but the answer was actually simple. It was a common misconception that Vulcans preferred bland food. Yes they are vegetarians but this is replicated food and therefore was actually constructed of plant-based molecules anyway. When it came to bland food, the answer was usually, no, Vulcans hardly ate bland food, except for some recipes, preferring spicy and salty foods instead. Coming from an arid world, Vulcan taste buds weren't as efficient as human taste buds and the same could be said for their sense of smell. It was Vulcan eyesight and hearing (and natural intelligence) that was superior to most life forms, as they were nocturnal predators by biological morphology and are used to a thinner atmosphere. This is why Vulcans wear tinted contact lenses, making their eyes seem darker than they really are as Starfleet vessels are too well lit for their night-vision capable eyes.

After lunch, sitting and eating alone, usually with her favourite PADD, called a Smart-Glass, she would then go back to the lab, finish her shift and then would retire back to her Quarters for dinner. She would then feed and water her rabbit and watch some old and new holovid programs on her Smart-Glass and go to bed after another sonic shower...in other words...routine.

She wouldn't admit it to anyone, but Inzjana was lonely. Oh sure it never really bothered her before and was never bonded to anyone back on T'Khasi (Vulcan name for their planet) and every time she would ask her mother why, she would always get the same answer, or rather lack of it; "You are special", is all her mum would say and when pressed further would change the subject entirely. Inzjana thought it may be because she was half-Romulan, a logical assumption given the bad-blood between the two same but different species. But that didn't gel any more, given that the lack of childhood memories had troubled her immensely. So much so, that given her lack of childhood memories and the nightmares in regards to having to kill her Romulan aunt, Inzjana nearly walked in to the medical bay multiple times to talk with the doctor, but thankfully changed her mind.

Still, Inzjana wanted so much to talk with someone, seeing as her meditations were taking longer to make her breathing abdominal instead of chested and quieting the mind was almost impossible. She managed to achieve it so far, but how long was that going to last.

Being a fellow Vulcan, Inzjana felt the need to confide in the captain, but they were not exactly friends, after all the captain was on the bridge and Inzjana was in science lab 2, but hey, anything can happen on a Starfleet vessel.

"Evan, I'm going to go over some medical records as I see a few of the crew are late for physicals If you need me just call out". Steven knew that he could leave the Captain's husband to get on with day to day things and this was a good time to check the records.

Of course he would need to speak with either Tekin or the Captain to schedule all the medicals but then again he was due to check up on the Captain anyway. He then walked over to the nearby console and started to check the logs, sorting them by last medical date.

=/\= Doctor Black to Captain Jones, when you have time Captain I would like to discuss crew physicals with you =/\= He then opened up the most overdue crew member and shook his head how could someone be 6 months late for a physical.

T'Ra was still rubbing the bridge of her nose when her comm badge pinged. , she thought. Evan must have said something, or maybe if she was lucky, it was another matter altogether. -/\-Acknowledged,-/\- she replied, lazily tapping her badge. Begrudgingly, she pushed herself out of her chair. "You have the con," she told an officer at the conn.

Evan just nodded, not saying a word, his mind still scrambling to find a way to word the problem. Doctor Black disappeared into around a corner, and the doors to sickbay slid apart, dispersing his thoughts. "Guten Morgen, Miss Jaeger," he offered as the flight lieutenant approached. "No, no. It's nothing like that. Though I think little T'Lana could do with a visit from him." The young Vulcan had been especially restless and cranky lately, and the raptor seemed to have a soothing affect.

"Actually, I asked for you to come because something came up in the scans I ran when you returned from the planet, and I wanted to run another quick test." He reached for a tricorder, adding, "Have you been experiencing any unusual symptoms lately? Feeling nauseous in the mornings, perhaps moody, and erm, can you remember the last time you bled?"

"You have the con," she told an officer at the conn.

[Bridge]

After a long week of debriefing and writing up reports regarding the incident where Tekin's team had been taken hostage, Alex was coming to the conclusion that Starfleet actually did care about losing equipment and resources. At the end of the day, he hadn't given the order to launch tricobalt devices, a decision that probably saved many lives on the surface below, but also meant several tricorders and medical kits were left behind. Considering the planet's now high-caution designation in the Federation database, it was apparently quite a faux-pas on his part.

It gave him enough of a headache that Alex was actually enjoying this rare occasion he could just stare out at the stars. Of course it didn't last long as usual. "Aye Captain." He replied, replacing T'ra at the conn as a junior officer took over the helm.

EQ stood at the Sec/Tac station.  It has been awhile since he had been on active duty.  But it felt nice to be back in the swing of things.

He has worked quietly.  Tapping buttons and monitoring the board.   "All systems at normal level, Sir" he finally called out.
