Viyara stared with a mix of scepticism and incredulity. She didn’t even know what to say; especially regarding the whole wiping people from the timeline thing. So she asked the one question she could think off. “What is the Time Axis?”

“Its a constructed city outside of time where training happens,” he sighed, “I’m actually five years older than my service record states and unbeknownst to the Captain here that five years took place between your last two missions”.

Koraia took all this in with a pensive gaze as she sat on Viyara’s couch. Her eyes shifted to take in the scientist and she offered Nazeen a soft smile. “It’s funny how things weave together. I’ve learned the hard way that sometimes you just have to go with it.”

Turning her head towards Ghubari, Viyara looked at her with defiance and anger written all over her pale features. But the Captain would be able sense something else: The fear that was hiding beneath the surface. “What if I don’t want to just go with it?” she asked sharply. The mere thought of just having to go with any of this, any thing in life really, terrified her. It felt like losing control and that was something she couldn’t let happen.

Michail gave her a moment and then ruffled his dark curls. “At the risk of sounding dramatic, the fact that I’m here talking to you suggests that you already have”.

Michail (Ships Enigma)

Rising abruptly to her feet, Viyara crossed her arms tightly in front of her chest and started to pace. To say that she was agitated would be an understatement. But she was also frustrated and afraid. Even though she wouldn’t admit the latter even to herself. What she wanted right now was to make both of them leave and pretend none of this had happened. But she had a feeling that this was one of the many things that didn’t just disappear if you ignored them.

Coming to a halt very close to Michail, Viyara looked at him through narrowed eyes and asked hostilely, “Why don’t you just tell me everything I should know instead of playing games?”

Michail’s eyes turned to flint and he was obviously struggling to bring himself under control, finally, his words like ice, he replied. “I… don’t… play… games. I played games once and someone I loved was wiped from the space time continuum, or did you miss that reference? I’m here telling you all you ask that I have an answer for. I cannot tell you what I don’t know and I have a question of my own burning in my mind. What in the hell were you doing just now that warranted the DTI sending me here at exactly this moment? What was it that had them worried enough to send me here to make sure nothing went wrong? Playing games? You are the one playing games, not me!”.

Michail (Ship’s enigma)

With her heterochromatic eyes ablaze with anger, Viyara hissed, “I caught that reference. I am not and idiot and I am not playing games. This whole “I’ll answer any question you have” thing pisses me off. Why can’t you just tell me what I need to know? And I have no idea why the DTI would send you here out of all places. But to answer your question: I was in the holodeck rock-climbing with the Captain.” She gestured towards Ghubari and the sleeve of her shirt slipped up a little, revealing a small part of the bandage around her forearm. Pulling the sleeve quickly down again and crossing her arms in front of her chest once more, she continued just as angrily, “We had a run in with the Counsellor. I got upset and left. Back here I tried to calm down and when you knocked on my door, I was journalling.” Flinging her arms wide in exasperation she finished, “If you have any idea why that would warrant you coming here: Be my guest and enlighten me.”

Michail let the mask slip from his face as he reran her remarks back through his mind. “Upset.” The one word came from his mouth with the weight of a neutron star. He looked at her with a small smile, “Perhaps I was sent to make you angry… if that’s the case, mission accomplished”.

Viyara snorted, her arms crossed tightly in front of her chest again, and had started to turn around, but stopped in her tracks when Michail continued to talk.

As if in another place alone he started to talk. “After Sorayah was erased from existence. I wanted to die. I couldn’t grieve because I had no feelings for her because even my memory of her was gone. I felt robbed, I felt guilty, I felt every emotion you could ever conceive of… and then I decided I would bring her back, and then I tried, failed, tried again, failed, again and again and again. That’s when I put a phaser to my head and at the precise moment, Lucksly arrived with a bottle of scotch and two glasses. I guess my mistake was to not bring a gift this time.”

Drifting back into their presence he sighed. “Stay angry Nazeen, stay angry”.

Michail (Ships enigma)

‘That shouldn’t be too difficult,’ Viyara thought grimly before saying out loud, “I never say no to a good drink, but I’m not sure bringing some booze would have made much of a difference.” With her lips pursed and a deep frown on her pale face, she walked over towards the window. Resting her hands on the narrow windowsill, she leaned slightly forward and stared out into the vastness of space.

“I’m sensing our moment has passed,” Michail’s eyes were heavy with strain, “If I find out anything else that might satisfy your curiosity about the situation I’ll pass it on to you. So, unless you have anything else, I’ll take my leave”.

Turning around again, Viyara glared once more at Michail. How dare he come here, give her some cryptic information and then just leave again just like that. She wanted him to stay and explain everything. To give her proper answers or rather to tell her what was going on without her having to try and find the right questions to ask. Yet she also wanted him to go and never come back. And preferably she would have liked the Captain to leave as well, but she had a feeling that Ghubari would stay and that it would be her turn to answer some questions. And really, between what happened in the holodeck and now in her quarters she couldn’t blame her for most likely wanting some answers. Taking a deep breath, Viyara unclenched her jaw muscles said, “Whatever,” before turning back towards the window.
