Kaia skipped happily along the hallway, excited for her Holodeck adventure. She’d found an adventure holo-adventure about traveling in the jungle and searching for treasure. She was a few chapters in and she was looking forward to further exploring her adventure. She was dressed appropriately in adventuring garb, with plans to get the program to simulate the majority of her equipment. Latest in her adventure, the protagonist and their party had survived a rushing river and waterfall. It was very exciting.

T’Lara walked briskly down the corridor as she headed towards the holodeck. She finally had some off time to herself and planned to mediate in a peaceful setting to rejuvenate her mind. She eventually reached the holodeck, but noticed another woman approaching on the opposite end of the corridor. This caused her to pause for a moment to acknowledge the approaching Ensign. T’Lara hoped that the computer did not accidentally duplicate holodeck appointment times and that the woman was just passing on through the area. However, the probability of that was minimal and she anticipated an awkward social interaction was inevitable at this point sighing just to the thought of the upcoming situation.

Kaia looked up at the Vulcan woman, her ears pulling back a little with confusion as they both glanced at the door at the same time. “Uh, hi there,” she spoke, smiling cheerfully. “I’m Kaia,” she bowed her head slightly. Kaia was an absolutely tiny person. At three feet tall, her size was similar to that of a human child. This was only made possible by the fact that she was not a humanoid, but was instead a felinoid alien.

Kaia scratched her nose, then smiled again. “Ah, I’m here for a holodeck adventure in Holodeck 2. You?”

T’Lara looked downwards in her best attempt to meet Kaia’s gaze since her diminutive form was about as high as her belt buckle. She listened to Kaia’s introduction and in response unclipped her PaDD off of her belt as she made an effort to verify her holodeck appointment time. Perhaps she had made a mistake, but this was highly doubtful in this case as she booked this exact time once every week for the next consecutive 52 weeks. After careful review, the screen confirmed that her appointment was scheduled for 19:00 in Holodeck 2. As politely as possible, she turned her PaDD so that Kaia could read the screen to verify that she was there at her appointment time. She kept her tone soft as she replied, “I am Lieutenant T’Lara and I booked an appointment in advance already here in holodeck 2.” T’Lara did her best to appear sympathetic, “When was your appointment scheduled?” She quirked a brow in curiosity to see if there was a computer error. However, this was typically doubtful, but not at all improbable, “Although it is improbable, perhaps the computer made an error in schedule times and booked the two of us at identical times.” T’Lara sighed softly hoping that it was not the case. She enjoyed engaging with members of the crew in social situations, it was nice for her to enhance her understanding about various species cultures, but she definitely preferred to be left in solitude during her holodeck appointments.

Kaia lifted her arm and tapped on the small compact bracelet, bringing up a holographic display written in a text language that T’Lara probably wouldn’t recognize. She scrolled through a few menus, finding the calendar that showed her booking of the time slot. She turned the screen towards T’Lara, then paused and realized that it wasn’t in english. Or any other language the Vulcan was likely to understand. With a few swipes it was fixed. She spoke in a bright and cheerful but also slightly confused tone as she turned the screen towards T’Lara again. “Here you go. Ens. Kaia booked for 1900 hours on Holodeck 2. I booked it about a month ago, four weeks in a row. Today is the last Holodeck Time before I chose a new time slot for next month.”

T’Lara reviewed Kaia’s appointment time and sure enough it was in fact a computer error. T’Lara sighed as internally she was irritated that she had to deal with this situation, but on the outside her facial expression remained stuck in the neutral realm. She pondered for just a moment as she though about what she would say next considering both parties were now in an awkward situation. However, she decided to be the one to perform a good deed for the night in this case. Besides, she could always practice her meditations in her quarters and book a holodeck time on a different date. Computers were helpful for the day and age, but they occasionally made mistakes which she definitely planned to file a report on to have the duplicate appointment situation addressed immediately in high hopes that she would not find herself in this very predicament ever again. T’Lara tilted her head slightly as she looked down to address the Ensign, “Well, how about that? There was an error in the appointment algorithm. I will ensure that this issue is addressed to avoid the problem in the future. You may continue with your session, I will book my time on a different day in this case.” T’Lara then paused for a moment politely as she awaited Kaia’s response and then planned to head to her own quarters after this conversation ended which she hoped would conclude swiftly.

Kaia looked at the schedule, her ears falling back a little. She didn’t like forcing someone else out of what they wanted to do. “Well, if you want, we can share? Hang out together!” Her ears pricked back up. She was suddenly excited by the prospect of a new friend. Whatever T’Lara was planning to do with the time, she was sure they could figure out a way to share.

Kaia, Eng

T’Lara’s eyes alone made it obvious to anyone in the galaxy that she was feeling irritated, disappointed, and just wanted to be back to her quarters at that moment, “How about we play a game involving strategy then? You do not seem like the type that would enjoy participating in Vulcan meditational rituals.” She decided to give Kaia a chance and not come off as being rude or inappropriate as she was typically professional as she tried her absolute best to appear interested in the idea.
