Jasmine motioned for her colleague to follow her. “Hello,” she extended her hand to Dr. Deen Hone wondering if he was sweating because he was naturally moist or if he had caught something from his lab. “I am Dr. Wynter and this is my colleague Dr. Baht.”
Lt. Jasmine Wynter CMO
Shon snapped himself out of his stupor, having been looking around at the new world in a bit of a awed daze. Shon started to raise his hand to give the well-recognized Vulcan greeting common in the Alpha Quadrant, then immediately dropped it to his side again as he remembered where he was. Instead, he just smiled bashfully and inclined his head in greeting to the other doctor. This was Ensign Baht’s first first-contact mission, and he was definitely feeling nervous about it.

“Hone,” he said in a gravely tone, then cleared his throat. “Forgive me. Allergy season and I left my spray at home.” He shook hands with a care with her. “Doctor Wynter. Doctor Baht.” He made a noticeable effort to get the names pronounced carefully. “Thank you for coming. I look forward to working with you both.” He looked at the two of them. “Evidently you are both from different worlds. Please, tell me about them. Come. Come with me. I have a transport waiting.”
Nodding she followed Hone in the direction he indicated.
The transport was another van like vehicle not unlike a 20th century SUV only with the top again fully transparent. There was a driving seat and two other seats facing each other in the back that would easily fit them comfortably. A driver fitted in what could be a uniform - that identified as he had a cap on and dark glasses with silver rims. He pressed a switch and the transparent cap telescoped back. At the same time the doors slid open and a foot step swung down into place.
Are we going on safari, Jasmine thought humorously as she stepped into the vehicle. Inside was plush and comfortable as she settled into a seat. “You are right about us not being from the same homeworld. I come from a planet called Mintara Prime. Five hundred years ago the people of my world left Earth and ventured out. We had a plague that killed over fifty percent of our colonists the first year we landed there resulting in some creative ways to keep the colony alive and thriving. It worked because five hundred years later as you can see we are still here,” she smiled. Aside from the Ministry of Harmony Jasmine was just a plain old Earthling. Hone would be far more interested in Baht.
Jasmine looked at her colleague to take his turn to answer the question posed by their host about his species origins.
