Hammor shrugged and said “No, not always. Started off in Engineering. I know my way around a power conduit and such. Operations came as kind of a secondary necessity, but they are kindred spirits.” and he laughed and looked at her. “Everyone at the Academy looked like they had been hit by by a Breen neuroblaster when I went the Enginnering route. Everyone… even most of the instuctors… took one look at me and thought ‘Security’.” He raised his glass to his lips and grinned. ” Little did they know…”

“Oh, I can imagine,” Kingston said with a nod. Preconceptions were hard things to shrug off and as open as a place as the Academy can seem it was riddled with its biases just like anywhere.

“What about you? Did you always want to be a head doctor?”

Hammor, Ops

She gave a half nod. “Yes and no. Back home I did a double major at university in exobiology and psychology. I could have gone either way, but when I decided to join Starfleet, I opted to apply for the Medical Academy. I just liked learning about the vast range of beings in our galaxy. I find trying to figure them out a fascinating process.”

Hammor nodded. “Noble endeavor.” and he paused a moment as if thinking something, and then said “I think I understand systems better than individuals. They’re just more… straightforward, I guess. Growing up, I only saw the absolute worst in anyone, so I guess that colored my vision more than I care to admit at times.”

Kingston nodded slowly. “It’s only natural. It takes time, and sometimes also some very contrary experiences for us to unlearn the things that can help us survive at the time, but ultimately may not allow us to thrive,” she said thoughtfully.
