Alexis had met Cpt Taylor already. She’d sang her songs of epic adventures from Earth, while she had thought she was the Queen of Hearts and she had thought Alexis was someone named ‘the huntress’. Then, Alexis had sprayed her in the face with the antidote for the fungus. She’d then helped her get to sickbay without any further interruptions. Alexis, however, would not call that a proper check in. So that is why she now found herself outside the captain’s ready room, iso chip with her orders and record in hand, and pressing the chime.

“Come in!” called the voice of the captain from deep within her new office. She smiled as she saw the doctor.

“Ah, ” the red haired woman said with a slight chuckle. “Doctor Bonner, I wondered if I was going to get a chance to see you. I daresay the last time we met was a little unconventional wouldn’t you? Please come in, have a seat. Can I offer you a drink from the replicator?” she indicated a chair opposite her desk.

Alexis entered, a little unsure. She was sure that the Captain didn’t want to remember whatever the fungus had made her believe, and Alexis was very embarrassed by having to sing for the crew. She hoped they didn’t remember or ask her to join the choir or something. She had perfect pitch, but she was very uncomfortable being in front of people. This new post had put her in that position of having to talk to and order about others. In sickbay was one thing, but the administrative side, though Alexis would hold her own, made her feel queasy.

“Yes it was very unconventional. Fascinating from a psychological and science stand point, I’m sure, but I am very glad it is now contained and was never on the ship.” She thought about it. Coffee this late would keep her up all night. She smiled, a little sheepishly, the very young girl who had gone through medical school and the academy showing on her face. “Apple juice.”

Willow blushed slightly “oh believe me I wish I could hide those events for ever. I’m sure command must have had a great laugh at my expense when they read my report.” She smiled. “Good idea.” She got a peach ice tea for herself and returned to the desk.

“Well let’s start this one again shall we.” Reaching out a hand she offered it to the Doctor. “Welcome to the Ogawa Doctor Bonner, I’m Captain Willow Taylor. We are very excited to have you join us. “

Alexis accepted the drink, switching it to her other hand to shake the captain’s hand. “Thank you Captain Taylor. I am very excited to be here.” That sounded so practiced and Alexis wondered, not for the first time, why she couldn’t seem to be as relaxed as others were. She was always fobbed off as anti social and ‘elitest.’ She really hoped being on a hospital ship would negate some of that. That there would be more like minded people that would rather say what they meant, instead of mucking it up with ‘social niceties’ that she didn’t really get.

She sipped her drink. “What do you think of the new ship?”

Alexis sat up and started to talk, excitedly, for several minutes about the new upgrades and equipment. The layout of the ship and how much better it was to the McCoy class as far as efficiency. The patient bracelets were obviously a huge hit with her. She went on for quite a while, even throwing in some information about new research and treatment methods and that they actually had the equipment for such things already on board. She’d keep going for a couple hours if someone didn’t stop her.

Willow seemed just as excited as Alexis did. She listened nodding along and interjecting here and there with her own random exciting finds or observations. “And the surgical capabilities…” she sighed appreciatively.

“Oh the surgical suite! Amazing, and maybe sounds morbid, but I can’t wait to see what we can do there. Crewman Gerald, he will be the first. We are going to be replacing his optical implants with better ones. The new ones arrived with the ship. He’s excited to get them, and they will actual give him better input and hopefully his body will accept them rather than rejecting like it’s doing with the current ones he has.” Alexis was excited for the work, but she was more excited for how much better Gerald’s health would be after wards.
Lt. Bonner, AMO

Willow nodded along. “No I understand the sentiment. It quite makes me want to dust off the old surgical gloves and attempt some practice at least. Have you had a chance to meet the chief surgeon?” She asked.
