Time travel… Theo thought. He could feel the internal point of his mind almost purring with the anticipation of something so interesting. It didn’t answer however instead Aloud addressed the patient. “I don’t recommend you attempt that again just now.” Theodore said sternly.
Raauhl was taken a back about hie casual they spoke about time travel, “Is time travel something of a normal routine for you? What year do you think this is?” The XOs head was already spinning, now he had time travel to contest with. Oh Cobb is going to have a fun time writing this report he thought as an after thought.
“And your travelling companion? Who is she?” Raauhl added.

“I have no clue what year you’re in, but I’m from 2263,” Mwezi replied. “Thirty years after the temporal incursion of the Narada, and five years since the destruction of Vulcan at the hands of the Romulan, Nero.” The destruction of the Kelvin and of Vulcan was common knowledge among Starfleet in his time. Secondly, the uniforms were not ones that he recognized from history, so he must be in the future. They’d recognize the events from their own history, of course! Little did he know that he’d been transported to not just a different time, but an alternate timeline…

Raauhl nodded and made his assumption the person or persons laying on the bed were clearly unwell and not thinking straight. “Right yes ofcourse well. I’ll leave you in the care of our medical staff and once you’re both fit we can discuss things further.” He gave the man a smile before turning to the chief medical officer, “Let me know when they’re ready to be transfered to the brig, or when they start making more sense” he said at a whisper. “I’m going to fill Cobb in with what’s happened and see if there’s any truth to what he just said.”

“Of course Commander,” the Doctor said calmly and moved the probe of his tricorder to his patients head began a more detailed scan for injury, concussion or brain pattern alterations.
There were no signs of injury to the brain or other obvious mental issues, other than the same hormonal imbalance that had been detected earlier, which the computer would flag as evidence of a known syndrome connected with Laleri mating practices. A similar condition to the Ponn Farr in Vulcans.
Luran was most certain that Vulcan in fact, had not been destroyed, and in a rare moment, the half vulcan’s look betrayed her thoughts. Time travel was one thing. Rare, but not unheard of. But everything else said by the patient was completely absurd. For her own curiosity, she double checked the scan results to see if the patient might be psychotic or delirious. But the level of dehydration made that unlikely, and there was nothing else significant on the scans.

As he worked he glanced at the man’s companion with an expression of passing interest.
Mwezi frowned slightly at the man’s tone of voice, as somehow the human didn’t believe his words. No one had yet told him who they were despite his informing them extensively about his identity, and asking for Kula’s identity as well. He bent his knees slightly, trying to test his physical capabilities just in case he had to fight his way out of this situation. He’d been frank and honest with these strangers and they’d not given him much in return, so he was beginning to be suspicious. Perhaps they were not from the future, but impostors trying to pretend they were.
“You’re asking a lot of questions and not giving me much in return. All I know is that you’re called Leviathan, a ship I’ve never heard of. Who are you, what year is this? Why does my mention of the Narada not produce looks of recognition on your faces? How can you not know, even if you are not who you pretend to be? All of Starfleet, heck, all the Federation, knows about the Narada. You know, the Romulan mining vessel, it traveled back in time to get revenge against Vulcan and Earth after the destruction of Romulus. It was only five years ago that they imploded Vulcan, five years ago that the Enterprise and her crew stopped them from destroying Earth as well…” Not only Starfleet knew of that. All of the Federation knew that part of history. Even if they were impostors, even if they were from the future, they couldn’t have such looks of surprise and shock at what he said. It didn’t make sense…
