“Oh that is interesting, I never heard that before… nuclear chemistry. Is that like a kind of antique science for historical reasons? Or does it play a part when discovering new civilisations that are still at this point in their development?” she asked curiously.

He tilted his head slightly in confusion. “Um…no? Nuclear energy…radiation and such…are what makes life possible.” To prove his point, he pointed out the window at the stars. “Those right there, Counselor, are where we all came from. Those are giant fusion reactors that create the elements…the building blocks to life.” He fought off the temptation to chuckle a little bit. He knew his mouth had a tendency to get him in trouble sometimes, and he decided that, for now, he should just try and rein it in. “While some civilizations have used nuclear energy…sometimes to their detriment…the stars always use nuclear energy. The will until they burn out. Even when they die, with very few exceptions, the elements brewing around inside them will move out into the galaxy, possibly forming the seeds of new life. And isn’t that what Star Fleet is all about, Counselor?” he asked with a smile.

OOC: I actually did misunderstand, lol, but I do know what you mean, I just didn’t know that term was used in English for it too (English is my second language). So I’ll actually be able to mirror that misunderstanding in Laraan :-)
“Oh sorry.” she said. “Now I know what you speak of. I believe the universal translator translated it right, only my connection with the word in my lanuguage is a different one than in your language. Well that is very interesting, because it sounds as if you speak of the energy that our universe consists of - to say it as a non-scientist.” she said with spiked interest.
- Laraan, CNS
OOC: No problem. I figured that was the misunderstanding. But I think it made for a nice moment. ;)
IC: He smiled, waving it off with a hand gesture. “Quite alright, Counselor. And you’re right. There’s more than just what we can see in the universe. There’s a scientific basis to it, but there’s still something…it’s hard for a scientist to explain in non-scientific terms…tangible yet almost metaphysical about the language of the universe.”
Ensign Caser Luj
OOC: This is going to be cool, because I have a keen interest in quantum physics and I actually believe that even on a sub-atomic level, there is someting that connects everything with everything and I’ve based the ability of my custom-made species (the Heleen) on that theory - all logical, not mythical or magical.
Laraan smiled at him warmly. “What if I showed you? I’m no scientist, but my species is driven by science, because we’ve harnessed millenia ago the ability to feel this energy that is all around and within us and channel it into another type of energy or matter. Never taking away, or adding, always maintaining the universal balance. It’s simply an accelerated shift of forms of energy if you will and each Heleen spends a minimum of 60 years to learn it.” she sang.
- Laraan, CNS
OOC: I am so sorry. Work has been hectic and I’ve been sick.
OOC: No worries, hope you are better.
IC: Luj leaned forward in his chair, eyes wide with curiosity. “Really? That sounds amazing, Counselor. How would this work exactly?” He’d never been the spiritual type, but he was also open minded enough to understand that there were things that couldn’t always be explained by pure science.

Laraan smiled and opened her hand to him, palm upwards. “Would you take my hand please?” she sang.
As he put his hand to hers, Laraan started to channel some of the energy around them into life energy. The familiar flow of energy through her, as she made herself aware of it, always felt good for her too and she had always enjoyed her channel.
For Luj, he would just feel warmth spreading from his hand in a cozy way through his body. It only went on for about 30 seconds or so, but it seemed longer. As Laraan gently withdrew her hand again from his, he would feel fully energized, as if he had just returned from a one week wellness holiday with the best food, enough sleep, lots of massages, doing only enjoyable relaxing things in the ways that gave him the most energy.
