As the scans came in, Javal peered carefully over the data stream, his eyes glancing over the assorted numbers and abbreviations that only a trained physician would be able to interpret on the fly. While the results indicated the obvious observation of fever and delusion, another result stuck out at him.

“Curious. My scans are indicating the presence of viral infection in this patient. I must transmit these results to Dr. Ven posthaste -”

At that very moment, Javal’s combadge came alive with Miya’s voice.

=^= Ven here - report, please. What condition are your patients in? =^=

Javal looked over at Jordy and raised his eyebrow at the convenient timing of the message.

“Ah, it seems that my report shall be received at a most opportune time by the CMO.”

Promptly tapping his combadge to give his reply, Javal glanced down at his tricorder and input a couple of commands to upload his scan results to the library computer found in Sickbay.

=^= “Cadet Javal here. I have completed a diagnostic examination of one of the affected engineers in the cargo bay. My scans indicate high-grade pyrexia, psychosomatic disturbance, and, most notably, a viral infection with sequences not readily indicative of most common communicable strains. I have uploaded the results of my scan to the Sickbay library computer.” =^=

Javal paused for a moment, thinking about the implications of what this situation would mean for both him and the security and medical personnel with him.

=^= ....Granted that the causative agent of these disturbances is viral in origin, I must assume that both I and the security and medical personnel that accompanied me to the cargo bay have been exposed to the virus. Unless otherwise indicated, we may need to undertake quarantine procedures to prevent further spread of the contagion.” =^=

[Cadet Javal - doctor]

=^= I think you’re right, Cadet. Take all precautions possible until we know for sure - I’m hoping to have more information about the infection vector soon. Do any of your crew members need beamed to sickbay or are you able to deal with them for now? =^=

[Lieutenant JG Ven Miya, CMO - cross-post]

Javal peered around the room to check the status of the crewmen that followed him into the cargo bay. For the most part, it seemed that his teammates as of right now were not displaying any of the symptoms associated with the unknown virus.

=^= “At this time, the cargo bay team and myself have not been displaying any of the symptoms associated with the virus, however I will continue to monitor the situation and make regular scans to check for infection. If the virus is airborne, it may have already infiltrated our systems, but more information will be forthcoming.” =^=

=^= Thank you, Cadet. As we discover more information, I’ll pass it on to you as quickly as possible. Remember you can transport a patient to sickbay if they need emergency medical support - or safe restraining; both our patients became aggressive over time. Your safety is equally important, remember. Ven out. =^=

‘If the virus does spread it also has spreaded in engineering and in there we had the the chief engineer and chief of security there, then we have a problem because if we need to go in quarantine then we have not much security left.’ Jordy says worried to Javal.

Javal nodded in recognition of Jordy’s valid concerns.

“Indeed, the chief of security and chief engineer are both at potential risk at spreading the virus. I trust that the CMO has already notified the Captain of our findings and has recommended further quarantine measures until the method of transmission has been discerned. Additionally, the Challenger should still be able to call on emergency forcefields and other lockdown procedures to mitigate the movement of infected personnel as well, which should assist our decreased number of active security officers in controlling the spread.”

After addressing Jordy’s concerns however he could, Javal readied his tricorder and aimed it at Jordy.

“…and to aid in the discernment of the route of transmission, I will need to request your permission to take a diagnostic scan as well. Since we have all been exposed to the virus, I want to evaluate if an immune response has already been initiated in us, or if any viral particles happen to have recently infiltrated our mucosa.”

OOC: Is the scan able to detect anything abnormal in Jordy?

[Cadet Javal - doctor]

‘You have permission for a scan.’ Jordy says.

Cadet Jordy Kleine - Security

Javal’s scan of Jordy came back normal. There was no sign of the virus in the cadets blood or about his body. Whatever the contagion was, it hadn’t spread to those two yet.

Javal glanced down at his tricorder as the results of the scan began to trickle in. So far, everything looked promising.

“It seems that the virus has not produced any detectable response by our immune systems as of yet, nor do I detect any traces of viral material that is similar in nature to the example I just scanned,” he said to Jordy as he flipped his tricorder back off again.

Placing a hand to his chin, he began to ponder what this might possibly mean for them.

“Given that you and I have had a fairly significant amount of exposure to the virus every since we entered Main Engineering, it is becoming more likely that the virus may not be transmitted through infectious aerosols. However, I cannot discount a number of other possible methods of transmission - contact with infected body fluids, contact with food handled by infected individuals, or the consumption of contaminated food are three of the most probable pathways considering our current circumstances…”

With his theorizing out of the way, Javal tapped at his commbadge to relay his findings to the CMO once more.

=^= “Javal to Dr. Ven. I have conducted a diagnostic scan of the cargo bay response team, and it appears that as of right now, I have detected no evidence of an immune response or any viral antigens that are similar in character to the ones I have sampled from the infected individuals here. Considering that the response team has been in near constant exposure to the infected individuals since our arrival in Main Engineering, I am inclined to rule out airborne transmission as a route of infection, however I will be continually monitoring the state our team for any new changes.” =^=

Since some time had passed since first sending out his data on the virus found in the cargo bay, Javal wondered if there were any developments on Miya’s end.

=^= “Has there been any notable updates as to our understanding of the virus’s origin, or as to the condition of the infected crew currently in Sickbay?” =^=

[Cadet Javal - doctor]

‘Alright’ Jordy replies

Jordy gets a little closer to the infected crewmen and starts to inspect them with his eyes. ‘What is going on with you all?’ He whispers.

Cadet Jordy Kleine - Security

=^= Stand by, Cadet - I’m getting some results through now. I’ll get back to you as soon as I’ve received them all and reported to the Captain. Ven out. =^=
