The routine scan of Ceres was showing signs of intense intestinal discomfort but the source was showing something strange. Within his system were the usual nutrients you’d expect in a Hot Fudge Sundae but for some reason they were superdense and now expanding within his tract threatening a rupture. He groaned in pain.

Karina barked orders and got a couple nurses help her get him into a bio bed. “Computer, state cause of unusual expansion rate of nutrients.”

She had the scanner out and was trying to find the worst spot. “Grab tray seven,” she told the nearest NE. The next couple devices she lifted into her hands were soon running over his lower abdomen. She used one to find the biggest blockage.

The other was in ready to help disintegrate it once it was located.

The computer replied, “Nutrient density is beyond statistical norms for standard replicator recipe, reason unknown”.

The scanner was showing the contents of Ceres stomach and intestines were expanding at an alarming rate. The pain hit hard and Ceres blacked out lying limp and pale on the biobed.

Karina frowned and pulled the stasis shield over his sides. Ordering the two NE nurses around with the control of someone considering a test, and not a major crisis, Karina cut off a section of the man’s tunic and used the tools at hand to focus on the spot of greatest growth. She set the scanners to eliminate anything that wasn’t biometrically his own flesh and blood. The nutrients were targeted and her vision shifted slightly from his actual stomach to the scanner now poised over him. She used the controls to move as swiftly as she could to dissintigrate the masses within him. If she couldn’t get it under control, and quickly, she would have to cut into him to relieve the pressure and allow the growth to ‘erupt’ out of him in a controlled manner.

Nurse Shots stood by the doctor’s side and assisted in the procedure. Looking over the scans he pondered what exactly could cause something like this. Well it at least made the night shift a little less dull he thought… a thought he quickly suppressed with a modicum shame.

Nurse Shots

and that’s when she saw it…, on the scanner, it showed that duplicate matter was arriving in his gut from elsewhere as if a second meal was magically appearing in his stomach from parts unknown…

“What in the world?” Katrina frowned as she watched the matter duplicate itself for apparently no reason.

“Computer… Can we use the transporter to filter out unknown duplicating matter if we move Ceres from med bed two to bed one? ” The thought just occurred to her that they could use the transporter as a large scale filter to remove not only the growing amount of matter already in his system but perhaps the catalyst as well.

=/\= Transporters are currently offline due to a malfunction in the Heisenberg Compensators =/\= The computer replied promptly.

“Should we prep you for surgery Doctor” Nurse Shots asked quietly as he looked over the patient file. This was entirely beyond his expertise, hopefully there was a proper solution to all this.

Nurse Shot

Karina’s hands were already flying over the table. “Yes… get surgery trays 2 and 6. Then get the portable sterilizer. I won’t be able to stop the manual removal for more than 30 seconds or so before it ruptures something.” She was already glancing at the over body scanner as she continued to manually remove the multiplying matter with her hand held tools. It would take a moment for the computer to take over, prep the patient’s body then begin its own removal. “Once we do what we can, I’ll turn him over to the system… but not until.”

Shot nodded and went straight to work. With another nurse the work was done quickly and professionally, a well trained and perfectly executed manouver.

She was aware of the nurse moving around the room but ignored him. She used the lazer to cut another drain hole in the man’s side and then went back to trying to find the source. =^=Computer… Prepare surgical calibration for foreign material removal. Trace organism origin to most likely source. Also, extrapolate possible source of condition’s cause. Use personal logs, quarters’ scanners, and replicator logs as well as any other movements of patient for last 24 hours.=^=

Finding a way to stop it was one thing, but finding how it started was another. She couldn’t handle an outbreak if more than one other person came down with this ailment.

Nurse Shots

The medical scanner was showing an impossibility but it in itself was not calibrated to discern the source. The surgery was removing the offending matter and Ceres stats were rising but the mystery remained exactly that, a mystery, and until the mystery was solved the matter would keep replicating in the foreseeable future.

OOC Time to get the science team in folks :-)

((Ppptthhhh… Was writing post to science and CO hehehe ..M))

Karina was growling under her breath. Soon as she she maintain the removal without it overrunning her, she called, =^=Medical to science lab… Need some help up here. I have an anomaly and need life saving help ASAP!=^=

She gave a quick report and had the computer link to science. No point in sending up a rock specialist when she needed a biologist… She hoped.

Her next call was to the captain. =^=Captain… I think you need to get to medical. We have a situation you need to know about.=^=

Her voice, while relatively calm, definitely had an edge to it.
