Three of Five was in one of the recreational halls. He was off in the corner, with a drink, half full on the table. He had a bag beside him, with yarn coming out of it, and more dolls that were not fully finished. In his hands, he had stitching needles. He was making a doll. If you looked close enough, it looked like it was starting to resemble Lt Marshall, the Chief Engineering Officer. The top doll in the bag looked like it resembled the captain.
Three of Five, engineer.

Angelina came in looking freshly showered and in simple black slacks that hugged her body in all the right places, and a tunic top in a deep emerald tone that highlighted the subtle tint of the same color on her skin. Her dark hair was still damp and pulled back in a loose, simple braid. Getting a glass of juice, she nodded to a few scattered folks here and there who greeted her. As she passed the engineer, she stopped. “Did you make all those?” The tone of her voice was one of bold admiration. “They are impressive.” She smiled and nodded to the man as he worked. Her half Orion eyes watching his hands move as if trying to figure out how he did it just from looking at a few motions.

“Yes, thank you. I make the dolls myself. It’s something my mom taught me to do. It’s the only thing I remember before being assimilated.” Three of Five told her.

She watched him for a moment before getting the courage to ask. “I know it seems silly, but do you think you could teach me? I mean, you make replicas of the others so well, I’d never think of trying that. But making some for the school might be something I can do. I hear kids like dolls.” She had been encouraged by a friend in the Academy to help support the families if she was ever on a generation ship. Seemed as good a time as any to do just that. And this was a way she could help.

“Oh yeah, I can show you. That would be nice for the kids to have.” He told her. “Most of the kids I grew up with liked dolls before they were assimilated.” He continued.

Angelina moved to sit across from him and watch. After several minutes she laughed. “You make it look so easy, but I can barely follow.” She had asked and was too chicken to back out now, but she half wondered if this was a futile effort and probably left to those who knew what they were doing.

“It’s like tying your shoe, with needles. You take this string, attach it to the needle here, and this string attaches to the other needle here, and then you weave the two together so that they intertwine with each other. It just looks harder than it truly is.” he said chuckling. “All it takes is practice. You’ll have it down like phaser training, in no time.” He said referencing her position on the ship to help her feel more at ease.
Three of Five, engineer.

This time she tried a bit slower and smiled. “Phaser training was difficult, I admit. You would think they were easier to fire than they really are. There’s no kick like projectile weapons, it’s true. But with a phaser, you can accidentally cut someone rather than merely stun and drop, if you aren’t careful. It certainly takes a steady hand and a knowledge of just how long to hold the trigger.” She laughed and held up the small circle she was working on it looked more oval than circular and the stitching was of different tightness to leave large holes in some places, nearly no space at all in others.

“Well, it seems I certainly have a long ways to go. Perhaps not a doll today, but soon,” she laughed shaking her head as if admitting her helplessness at it. “At least it doesn’t cut them in half.”

“But, you are getting there. Just keep at it, and in no time, you will be making dolls like I do.” Three of Five said. It was fun sharing his hobby with someone else. “Maybe not the dolls you are making, but mine have a more special purpose for this ship.” He thought to himself.
Three of Five, engineer

Angelina was spurred on to continue at the compliment from Three of Five. At the comment of his having a purpose, she paused a moment then looked at him. “You don’t have to tell me if you don’t want. But can I ask what purpose your dolls have for this ship? I don’t mean to pry, if it’s personal.”

“I plan on making a doll for every ship mate and using my implants to essentially take over the ship.” He said and then laughed. “No, seriously, I want to get permission to have a display case somewhere, and once I’m done, the dolls be presented in the case with the year of that time, so the future crew can never forget about us.” He stated.
Three of Five, engineer.

((Sorry, somehow lost this))

Angelina smiled. “I think that’s an amazing idea.” She laughed. “The display I mean, not taking over the ship.” She winked to show she was teasing and relaxed as, once more, she tried to mimic the finesse of the one before her. “Perhaps something could be set up in here. Maybe over there where the ship plaque is. I think it would be a great pass down to generations to come.”

“Yeah, that would make a great spot.” he said. “It’ll be cool to see them all once they are finished.”
