Kaia traipsed into the Lounge and clambered onto a chair with the small group that had formed. “Hey,” she said with a small smile to the group. She cradled her formerly broken arm, treating it with caution. She was still amazed that her arm had healed up so nicely. Of course, this kind of technology existed all over, but she’d never had a broken bone to have it work on. “Hey, Shon. Hi, Faye. Good to see you, Kaiama.”

Kaia, ENG

Her mouth full of soup, Kiama merely smiled warmly at her friend instead of greeting her verbally. It was good to see her and she was really enjoying their gathering here in the lounge and hoped that everyone else felt the same way.

Shon nodded and smiled at Kaia, then pushed the plate of lemon squares in her direction. “Wow, look at us. Quite a few bumps and bruises split between us. I gotta admit, I kinda expected my first service-related injury to be on an away mission. I’m not sure if ‘holo-deck accident’ is better or worse.” He gulped down another spoonful of chowder. “How’s your arm Kaia? I saw you came into sick bay for it, but I never got the story of what happened.”

“Ah, engineering accident,” Kaia smiled sheepishly, reaching for a lemon square and considering it carefully. She didn’t know what had happened to the others, although clearly it involved a holodeck. “While you guys were…” she paused, giving a questioning glance. “Fooling around in the Holodeck, I was scrambling around in the Jeffries Tubes. Got a little to eager crossing a gap and lost my grip,” she didn’t mention the fact that her fall had been caused by a slight malfunction of her prosthetic arm. It hadn’t expressed proper grip strength and she’d been sent tumbling down. “All I did was break the arm, but it still sucks. What did you guys do in the Holodeck?”

Faye snorted. “Inter-dimensional spatial anomaly wrecked havoc on the holodeck systems, including the safety protocols. Apparently the lesson of the day was to never leave home without your computer coder,” she said with a weary grin.

She put the lemon square on the table and quietly flexed her artificial fingers, giving Kiama a short glance. “How much fiber is in this thing?” The small officer asked, once again considering the treat.

“Almost none, sadly. But they’ll be tart and sweet at the same time,” Calloway chimed in before she took another bite of her hasperat.

“Low Fiber is good for me,” Kaia said with a small grin, taking a bite of the lemon square. “My system can’t handle much fiber, it makes me really ill.”

  • Kaia, Engineer

Shon frowned into his bowl and muttered, “We weren’t fooling around” in a dejected tone. But at the mention of the fiber content of the lemon squares, he pulled out his PaDD and set it on his lap to frantically search for the recipe for the dessert. Upon finding the fiber content, Shon wasn’t sure if it was high or low by Galdori standards. Pulling up Kaia’s medical file in a public place was obviously a no-no, so he figured it might just be for the best to let Faye’s assessment go unopposed.

“No definitely not,” Kiama agreed with a wry smile. “I don’t think I’ve ever hit my head that hard. So I also learned to wear a helmet and something other than a dress the next time I mount a scooter,” she added with a chuckle and winked at Shon. She wasn’t sure why, but she suddenly had a really hard time to keep herself from laughing. Well, that wasn’t true, as a neuroscientist she did have an idea why she was feeling like laughing. Yet while it made sense to her in theory, she had never experienced such a reaction in herself before. Not to this extent anyway. And not with such a delay. After all, any reaction to the shock and adrenaline should have come much earlier. So she took a deep breath and tried to keep a straight face while helping herself to another bite of biscuit; not trusting herself enough to eat more soup just now in case she really did burst out laughing.

“And… there are reasons I avoid the holodeck,” Faye said with a smirk as she picked up her hasperat. Leaning back, she shook her head. “Give me a real space any day, like the garden. I get there are limitations, but less chances of things trying to kill you.” She was highly amused, though she wasn’t interested in visiting the frantic speed at which she had had to work to navigate the holodeck programming.
