The transfer had not been Senek’s idea. The Vulcan had been perfectly happy aboard the Resolute, however she had been convinced that a lateral move to the Asimov was the best thing she could do. And as irritating as getting to know a new crew could be, it would also be an opportunity to learn more.
That was the thing with humans. As illogical and annoying as they could be, they were infinitely fascinating, and so as irritating as transferring to a new ship was, she could see how very different people might behave. Of course, the Asimov was far from only a human ship - and Senek would welcome the possibility of getting to know others as well. But she’d always had somewhat of “a soft spot” for humans. It had earned her ridicule back on the Vulcan ship.
A few crew members greeted her as she headed down the hall. Of course, Senek knew precisely where she was going, but she had some spare time, and she figured no harm was done in looking around the ship before she officially checked in for duty. Whenever someone said ‘hello’, she made sure to say something back. Humans liked that, though the point of it was lost on her.
But now, she was out of extra time, and precisely on the dot on time, she was outside the door of the Executive Officer’s office, and she rang the chime to let them know she was there. Then, she stood quietly and patiently, and waited.

Almost instantly a voice from the other side of the door called, “Enter.”
Senek would find herself in an office that - at least furniture-wise - looked like a very standard office. Even the half unpacked moving box was probably to be expected considering that Siadra had arrived not too long ago herself. Two large, framed photos were resting against one of the walls, clearly waiting to be put up. A few mementos were scattered on the coffee table. In fact the only thing that definitely seemed to have found a permanent home was a picture frame on her desk that opened like a book. One half held an image of Liara in a ballet outfit and the other held one of Kaileni and a very pregnant Siadra; a photo that also had a place on a side table in her quarters. The other noticeable thing was that there were a few toys scattered around the room.
The First Officer herself was sitting behind her desk, working her way through a stack of PaDDs while her daughter was sitting on the couch, deeply immersed in an actual book and clutching a reddish-brown teddy bear to her chest. Looking up from her work and rising to her feet, Siadra greeted the new Chief Medical Officer with a warm smile. “Welcome aboard the Asimov Lieutenant. Please have a seat,” she said and gestured towards the chairs in front of her desk. “May I get you something from the replicator?”

Senek stepped into the office, quickly taking in the surroundings. Apparently, the Executive Officer was fairly new as well, she was clearly not fully unpacked. Perhaps that also explained the presense of the child, who judging by looks could’ve been no other than the Commander’s child. Children made Senek… uncomfortable. She did not particularly like them. So, she simply ignored the young girl’s presense, greeting the Commander as she sat down. “Thank you and no thank you, Commander. To formally introduce myself, I am Lieutenant Senek, to be your Chief Medical Officer.”
