“Nothing new Doctor. Not even a sprained muscle from martial arts practice,” which was true. But what she hadn’t exactly had time in the transfer to practice, but she was hoping to make time once she got settled in.
Lt Cmdr Enger, XO

Rika nodded as she checked her scans “That’s good. I know how easy it is to strain yourself when you practice.” she said kindly “I’ve done it enough times when I’ve been practicing. However I’ve always been better with a blade then hand to hand. I’ve been wanting to try out the ships facilities, just haven’t got time yet” she added.

Ensign Nishizumi (Medical)

“You train with blades? I have met many doctors that practice martial arts for the health benefits, but never with weapons. I would be very…” Oh the word was lost..Hmmmm… “eager to practice with someone.” Was that the correct word? Yes she thought so.
Lt Cmdr Enger, XO

Rika smiled “I would very much enjoy that” she said kindly.

Karina smiled, “I would as well. I have not seen the training and practice areas yet. I look forward to using them. We shall make a plan, yes?”

Rika nodded “After we finish your physical we can discuss it if you wish” she said respectfully;

“Forgive me i haven’t treated anyone of your race. Is there anything in particular I need to know. Any cultural taboos like not touching certain parts of your body? Or certain medicines you can’t take?” she asked,

Ensign Nishizumi (Doctor)

Karina nodded, “Cairin are not born with vocal chords. Our telepathy is highly developed and we have no spoken language. We use voice…en…enhancers to help us speak verbally.” Karina pointed to her throat and raised her chin slightly so that Nishizumi could scan the area better.
Lt Cmdr Enger, XO

Rika obliged and started scanning “Do you experience any discomfort or soreness in you throat?” She asked as he looked at the scan results.

Ensign Nishizumi (Doctor)

Karina shook her head, “No doctor. In fact, I’ve never had to have any work done to it. I got it when I was five and it’s worked perfectly. Though when I was younger I used to…’clear my throat’ a lot. It made the voice enchancer vibrate, it tickled. I was fascinated by the sensation until I got used to it.”
Lt Cmdr Enger, XO

“That’s good. Some voice modulator can have nasty side effects and cause discomfort. If you do have any issues please come see me” Rika said as she finished her scans “After all cybernetics is one my specialist fields. It come part and parcel with my other field” she added

Karina nodded, “Of course doctor. I have no wish to be without my voice. We use them very little on my home planet, but I find I rather like the experience, even if times it is....str....difficult.”

Rika noticed the change in words, she wasn’t sure if it was an accident or just the XO trying to figure out which word was best to use “If you do find in straining then I would recommend not using it when your in your quarters at night. Give your throat a bit of a break” she said simply.

Karina looked puzzled for a moment and then she understood, “Ah my hesitation. It is not from the voice enhancer, it is…how my brain works. I think is the correct idiom. Despite learning vocal language when I was young sometimes I still struggle to find the correct word for the thoughts in my head. But I shall remember your advice and let you know if there is an issue.”

“Well according to my scan you fit for duty. Do you want to get a date set for our sparing match now or later?” She asked after a short pause.

Ensign Nishizumi (Doctor)

“Ah yes, I would very much like to schedule such a match. I am sure I shall be busy for the next 4 days. Would five or six days work best for you? Alpha or Gamma shift?” Karina asked knowing her schedule would get set down very quickly.
Lt. Cmdr Enger, XO

“I have Alpha shift so Gamma. if that’s ok with you” She said happily, she was looking forward to it.

Ensign Nishizumi (Doctor)

“Gamma shift then. I look forward to it. Do you know if Lt Grey is in? I would like to introduce myself.” Karina wanted to get to know the senior officers as well as the junior ones. She was the go between for the entire crew to the captain and she felt the best way to do that was to get to know them.
