“Can you go into that a little more? The diversity of missions and how the crew’s diversity helps with that?” Preem asked as she took some notes and turned the page.

“It’s like on any starship, really. If you just had a crew who all thought alike and had similar experiences, it’s very unlikely that you’d be able to handle challenging situations with great outcomes. My experience has been that when you have people with different backgrounds, cultural traditions and ways of thinking, you end up with better solutions to problems. Because inevitably, someone is going to think about a variable that others might miss. Or you’ll have people who can understand others because they can relate better because f similarities they have that others in the crew do not. I mean, take me for example,” Dira said, tapping her chest. “My mother is Betazoid and my father is Haliian but I was raised on Vega. So while I was given access to all the traditions and wonderful culture from both those peoples, being raised away from those homeworlds give me a far different perspectives than others might have. And I bring those experiences and values and traditions with me each day. And I think it makes me a better officer for embracing those differences.”

Preem gave an enthusiastic, if reserved, smile and nod of her head. “So you were a doctor, who came here for command placement… What was your first thought upon getting this posting? How do you feel about being so far away from the core worlds?” She looked down at her notes and added, “Once we get a few more of your background out of the way we will talk about the ships some, and give you a chance to just speak from the heart.”

Dira didn’t feel it necessary to correct him, since technically she did hold a medical degree and was able to slip in to help in an emergency without difficulty. She wasn’t going to be jumping into surgery anytime soon though. Not her area at all. “Being away doesn’t bother me, at least not anymore. I’m very used to it at this point. My family is used to my being away too, but I do try to get back to Vega when I can,” she said with a smile.

“As for my first thoughts? Well, I guess the main one was ‘Am I ready?’” Myqian shrugged. “You can never know for sure but it’s not until you take that next leap that you find out if it’s going to work out. And sometimes it doesn’t… at first. Everyone needs a transition period, especially when you make a large career shift.”

Preem paused as she jotted down more notes, “Ok yes, very good, very good.” She looked back up, “I miss home, if I am honest, but that is just me. I hate being this far out away from everything but,” She slipped into a passable Golfink impersonation, “We have to go where the action is!”

Laughing she added, “anyway… since you have been here what was your most impressive moment with the crew, something that either moved you to tears, made you laugh, proud. Any sort of strong emotion.”

One eyebrow raised, her expression clearly sceptical, Aizala replied, “I am. A member of the crew, I mean. But I’m certainly not a star. Nor shy. I’m a doctor. I don’t care about fame or being in a documentary or anything like that. All I care about is taking care of people. Saving lives. And I most certainly don’t want my story told unless it’s purely about medicine.”

The stylist shrugged, “I am just a stylist. I get to make people look nice on camera not ask them their life story.” She giggled slightly and shook her head, “Anyway, Golfink is a…” she paused frowning a moment, then continued, “Well, he is complicated. Some call it demanding, some call it genius. Most all agree that he is difficult to work with but that is why he has Preem, and the others. People don’t like him, but he doesn’t really care. He is like you that way, I suppose. His patient is his art.” She shrugged again watching the interview from afar before taking a bite of danish, “Love him or hate him, he gets what he wants. One way or another.”

GM Wombat

Aizala felt a bit of unease creep up on her as she listened to the stylist. And yet she stayed and asked, “If he is difficult to work with, why are you working for him? Why is anyone working for him?” There was no judgement in her voice, just confusion and curiosity.
