OOC: Once again, I don’t know how much time has passed. GM can you give me a hint? Hours? Minutes?
OOC: Let’s go with about an hour since you last left sickbay, between the experience and following the critters about from room to room. .. Gene
Counselor Rollo walked into sickbay and looked around at the people working there. “By any chance is the Chief here? I’ve had an incident…” Although, physically, she felt alright, her brain kept working to remember something—something she believed was important.
“Rollo,” Jasmine replied walking over to the counselor. “What do you mean incident,” she pulled out a tricorder and began to scan her waiting for more information from the other officer.
Lt. Jasmine Wynter CMO
The scans indicated that Rollo was or had experienced an increase in respiration, adrenaline and dopamine levels. They were not persistent - it was indicative of a recent event and the levels were decreasing. There was no indication of health concerns.
Zef turned to see Wynter and felt a small rush of relief. “I was following one of the…aural trails left behind by the night life form of the Gravenians. We ended up in the Captain’s quarters. I asked it not to leave, I wanted it to stay so we could figure out what’s happening with the people down on the planet. It came over to me…it was beautiful…like a universe contained inside the rough shape of a person.” For a moment, her eyes lost focus as she remembered the feeling when they had contact.
Shaking herself to focus, the counselor continued. “It approached me and held up its hand like it wanted to touch me, so I did the same. The moment there was a union between out hands…I don’t know. I remember feeling like I was in a softly, buzzing field of some kind. I know some time passed, maybe twenty minutes or so. When I came back to myself, I was alone, but suddenly I could see where all the entities were on the ship and I could see the planet down below us and the swarms of night life forms there.”
She looked at Jasmine earnestly. “I think there was some kind of exchange between us. I just don’t know what it was or if its still happening.”
The doors to the sickbay slid open and Cochrane came into the room. He walked over to the CMO and Counselor and said to Rollo “You okay, Counselor?” His voice was professionally concerned, and he looked at her with a modicum of concern.
Zef looked over as Cochrane entered. “Yes, I think so. The doctor was about to assess the situation though.” She looked back at Jasmine. “I don’t really feel any differently, but that business of being able to see through the ship like it was a skeletal embodiment, to where the other entities were…well, that was really odd. I’ve never had vision like that before. That’s why I think there must have been some kind of exchange between me and the night form of the Gravenian.”
Cochrane looked at the CMO and said “Thoughts, Doc? What could have happened?”
Ensign Baht piped up bashfully before Lieutenant Wynter could speak. “Oh, Captain? I was hoping to speak with you, I had an experience with the specters when I was planet-side… they spoke to me, told me about a ‘conjunction’ and how, um… well they said ‘many will burn’ and I think something like ‘those left behind return, with much wrath’… or something.” Shon gulped as he repeated the words outload, realizing the implications of those threats.
(Ensign Baht, Medical)
Shortly after this revelation, Rollo begins to feel very weary. Whether it is a conjunction of all the ‘excitement’ of the day and then this encounter, or more so the latter. Being quite late it could be a combination.
OOC: Going to forward the time on to morning but please continue this thread with Baht to the conclusion of the revelations. .. Gene
Cochrane locked Baht with a look that seemed both frustrated and irritated, bit his voice was calm and even. “You… spoke… with them? How, Ensign? We’ve been trying to communicate with them for hours, and haven’t come up with a way.”
As Zef looked at Baht, an overwhelming surge of exhaustion came over her. “Oh…I think I should get back to my quarters. Suddenly I’m so tired I feel like I could sleep for a week.” Since the doctor had given her a clean bill of health, there was no reason to stay in sickbay. Maybe once she got some rest, her experience would make more sense and the feeling of connection and sharing with the night form would supply some answers.
