Hammor released her hand and began pressing keys and telling the replicator what he wanted. In a few moments he had two trays. On one: four double cheeseburgers, three orders of sweet potato fries, three orders of taro chips, and two chicken ceasar salads. On the other: Risian lasagne, fish and chips, and Deltan seafood chowder. He looked at Viyara and said “I’ll go make sure no one steals our spot.” and he winked and went back to the table.

Hammor, Ops

“Do that,” Viyara replied with a soft laugh as she looked at the amount of food Daggum had just ordered. She then turned around and was just about to give her own order, when she looked over her shoulder and called after him, “Do you want something to drink?”

Daggum shook his head and said “I’ll order from the bar.” and took his seat after setting the trays down.

Hammor, Ops

Turning her head back towards the replicator, Viyara ordered Irish stew, two biscuits, a small graden salad and a glass of water. Maybe she would get something to drink from the bar as well. With her tray in hand, she returned to their table and sat back down. She then picked up her fork, but didn’t start to eat. Instead she asked, “So how have you been since we saw each other last?”

~Ensign Nazeen, Scientist

“Busy.” Daggum said around a mouthful of burger. He chewed quickly and swallowed. “Sorry. Missed lunch. But yeah, slammed. Trying to get the ship up to a hundred percent before we leave is… time consuming, thats for sure.” and he chuckled. “How about you? Things any better between you and the CSO?”

Hammor, Ops Chief

“I can imagine!” Viyara replied and then started to eat her stew. She was silent for a few moments till she eventually said, “I think so. One of my tasks is to feed the lizard, Scales, and the CSO is very fond of him. So he must not consider me completely incapable. Though I have the feeling he isn’t someone who forgives or forgets easily. So I’m trying to be extra good while I’m on duty.”

~Ensign Nazeen, Scientist

“Scales, huh? Never known the Science Department on any ship to have a mascot, but here we are I guess. ” and he grinned. “So what does ‘ol Scales eat, then? Crickets? Veggies? Unruly Science Ensigns?” and he laughed softly.

Hammor, Ops

“Nah, unruly science ensigns like me are to sinewy. He wouldn’t like that. His diet consists mostly of vegetables and fruits, but also some insects. Thankfully the replicator doesn’t make living ones,” Viyara replied with a soft laugh as she suppressed a slight shudder.

~Ensign Nazeen, Scientist

“Live crickets, coming up. Maybe it will give you a boost with the boss.” and he smiled. “So how have you been? Anything new going on?” and he lowered his voice. “How’s the thing with the XO… well… I guess Skipper, now? Still seeing where that goes?”

Hammor, Ops

“It better does,” Viyara made a slight grimace. She really wasn’t terribly fond of insects and spiders. But if it helped her get into the good books with the CSO, she’d feed Scales as many live crickets as he was allowed to have. Pushing any thoughts those multi-legged beasts from her mind, she said, “I think we are going to be just friends. She is a sweet woman and I do like her. But I think she is a little to sweet and innocent for me. And I’m fairly certain she’d want more than something casual. But I can’t give her that and I don’t want to break her heart.” Popping a piece of carrot into her mouth, she looked ad Daggum. She then said, “Otherwise I’m … okay, I think. Still feeling a little unsettled and on edge at times, but hopefully that will pass.” She gave a small shrug and then ate another forkful of stew. The truth was that she had spend a lot of time thinking about her past ever since the day and night they had spend together. It made her uncomfortable, but she wasn’t able to put all those memories and emotions into drawers of her imaginary dresser than she used to. And that, of course, added to her discomfort. And yet she couldn’t bring herself to regret opening up to Daggum that day.
