Kevin boarded the USS Challenger and made his way towards the Counsellors office for his Starfleet mandated Psych eval. As Hios was autistic, he was very nervous about this because he hated people seeing behind the facade he puts up to try and fit in. As he walked through the expansive corridors towards the office, he shivered with anxiety and nerves.
As soon as he got to the office he pressed the button on the door.
Commander Dar was just coming back from his lunch break when he spotted the Cadet at his door. Smiling; “Good day Cadet…Hios? Is it? I believe you are my 1400hrs appointment. Please come in and make yourself at home. There is no need to feel uneasy here.”
Walking to the replicator. “Glass of Arnold Palmer and..” Turning to Cadet Hios. “You want anything to drink good sir?” After getting Cadet Hios something if he wanted it he came back and handed it to him, if anything and sat down in a chair across from him. “Now Cadet. I have read your file before you got here.” The Trill said. “I understand that you are autistic and rest assured you are in good company. I want you to understand the autism is not holding you back or preventing you from being successful, it’s the way that society treats people who deviate from the norm that’s holding people like you back. What society thinks is normal is different in the way that you perceive is normal and on this ship, I believe that you will fit in just right because the Captain and myself take things like this very seriously. Again. If at any time you want to leave, just say so or if things get too overwhelming, just hold up a hand and I will stop. Is that acceptable to you?”
Lt. Commander Sorazo Dar, CNS
“Yes Sir, that is acceptable, though don’t worry, all the mental breakdowns will only happen inside my quarters and not at my duty station sir” Hios says while playing with a piece of blue tack he fiddles with when he is nervous.
“I am also pretty nervous being on such a scientific ship and my background in stellar cartography may not be useful for this training exercise since everything in this sector has been mapped, double mapped and triple mapped just to be sure.”
