Commander Mark Adrian, Chief Medical Officer, USS Asclepius.

It is both with relief and sadness that I write an exit report for Taniel Lox. Though a talented practitioner in many fields, he could also be somewhat flippant, arrogant and frustrating. His fine work in emergency care and general practice made up for his poor work in more mundane matters of medicine, but only just - he must not be allowed to avoid the work he does not enjoy, for this will cause his knowledge and skill as a general practitioner to suffer.

To work alongside, Doctor Lox can be a lot of fun; he is eager to make those around him laugh, and he seems to genuinely care if people like him. He is bold and flirtatious, which has its place (though once or twice I had to remind him about appropriate behaviour in my Sickbay), which can be a blessing in high pressure, fast moving situations. His calmness in the face of difficult circumstances is definitely something he has in his favour.

The biggest obstacle this young man will face in his coming career is his difficulty in coming to terms with his condition. One might assume that a medical professional would be better to equipped in dealing with a chronic impairment and that it might even affect that professional less, but not in Doctor Lox’s case. His undeveloped paracortex (and thus his lack of telepathic and most of his empathic ability) has had a great effect on his social development, and members of my staff soon found that it was best not to mention it at all.

In all, I believe we have in Taniel Lox the makings of a truly great doctor, provided he can spend more time refining his craft than showing off with it.

Psychological Report
Lieutenant Commander Dale Tench, Assistant Ship’s Counsellor, USS Asclepius

Taniel was first referred to me by Commander Milar, the Ship’s Counsellor and my immediate superior. It had become quickly apparent that Taniel would respond better to a Counsellor who was not also a Betazoid, which we can confidently assume is due to the impairment of some of his mental abilities.

I am not the first psychologist that Doctor Lox has seen; in fact he has been having ongoing therapy both from the beginning of his career in Starfleet and even as a developing adolescent on Betazed.

The reason for this ongoing treatment is primarily anger management issues, stemming from the experiences he had as a child, growing up on a world full of telepaths, without himself having that ability (although it should be noted that he does possess some small ability of an empath). His issues manifests itself in short, but quite strong, bursts of anger which therapy has managed to help him successfully contain, though not deal with completely.

It is the recommendation of this psychologist that Taniel Lox continues to meet with a Counsellor whichever ship he is assigned to. Though he might not necessarily need weekly appointments, I recommend regular check-ins to ensure that he continues to function well as a part of the crew.
