Jessica chewed on her lip as she studied the readout of the Vulcan’s brain waves again. Even though she was expecting his arrival, the swish of the Sickbay doors still startled her and she whirled around to face the CSO and the CMO. She only knew the CSO by reviewing crew profiles upon her transfer; she hadn’t yet had the opportunity to meet him, a detail that would have had more import if she had not been so concerned about her patient. She quickly updated Grey on Kurok’s condition, finally gesturing to the display she had just been studying to emphasize her confusion. She spoke quickly, perhaps a smidge faster than the bubbly blonde normally orated, concern creasing beside her eyes.
Benjamin examined the computer data as Leman explained what was going on. He frowned at the data results The Vulcan brain was one of the most mysterious things any Doctor would come across “The shock has had an adverse effect on his neural responses, I suspect he’ll be out of it for some time. There’s nothing immediate we can do, cognitive problems are to be expected” He put his hand on Lemann’s shoulder and squeezed gently “You did good work Jessica” He gave her a faint smile “For now we make him comfortable and monitor his neural responses carefully, we’ll know more later.”

Jessica’s gaze darted quickly to the hand on her shoulder and she offered Grey a hesitant smile and nod as she forced herself to put down the medical tricorder in her hand. She had gotten so involved in trying to fix the problem that she had been blinded to the notion that Kurok just needed time to recover. Before she could react further to the situation…
T’Pon started to slowly come too, her eyes bleary and her voice raspy as she spoke to the doctors present. “My baby?” was all she could say in a rasp.
Liam watched the exchange of Dr. Grey explaining the situation and easing Dr. Lemann’s confusion. All creatures had their own unique responses to trauma. The fact they had managed to collect and list most of them helped, but never covered everything. Much like Science did.
For the first time in the room, the CSO noticed T’Pon and her state. Unsure of what to say, Liam’s eyes darted toward the doctors for answers. Unlike them, he had no idea what had happened in regard to T’Pon.

The guilt hit Ben like a punch in the diaphragm, he could still hear himself give the order to drop the forcefield and see when the imposter stole the child. He took a few steps forward, placing his hand on the edge of the bed “On her way, Cap s says she’s safe and sound” He tried his best at a reassuring smile.
Dr. Grey - CMO
T’Pon sobbed a little as the relief hit, “S’Raal? Is he ok too, is he hurt, did he…?” She had been about to say something but then thought better of it.
Jessica hung back as T’Pon conversed with the CMO. Focusing on the tools in front of her, she methodically sorted out the used ones and placed them to be dealt with later now that it seemed things had calmed down for the moment. She kept her side to T’Pon’s biobed so that she could keep an eye on the interaction, but remained noticeably absent from the discussion otherwise.
