“No, I was actually about to head to the Lounge,” Brad admitted. “What’s in the box?”

Cmdr. Dr. Brad Walker
Chief of Staff

She grinned. “Coconut curried chicken and noodles in one, sweet and sour andorian snow boar with rice in the other.“ she held up the flask. “And a strawberry and lime cider. Synthahol of course. But if you have plans…”

Willow Taylor
CO

“No, no plans,” Brad said quickly. “Other than stare out the window and pick at whatever the special is. I’ll take the sweet and sour.”

Cmdr. Dr. Brad Walker
Chief of Staff

With another grin Willow began shepherding Walker back into his office. “Well in that case back up and let me in,” she said good naturedly and moved around him to put the boxes on his desk. “Something up with your appetite?” She asked as she set the food out and dropped into a chair on the patient side of his desk.

Willow Taylor
CO

“No, I’m plenty hungry, it’s just the special is usually not something eaten by humans. Last week it was plomeek soup and Vulcan flatbread, which is edible if not strictly appetizing, but the week before that it was something from Tellar prime, which was as near as I could tell spiced and roasted root vegetables paired with even spicier roasted insects. Kai might have enjoyed it, but I managed to eat an vegetable and half a bug, requiring an entire glass of milk after each bite.”

Willow laughed. “Ok. I was promised a more diverse menu with the new ship but honestly that’s just awful. And don’t give Cai any ideas. I’m surprised he hasn’t been in to get his oesophageal lining repaired.” She rolled her eyes and pulled some eating utensils out, offering a set to Brad.

=^= GALEN.=^= she said meanwhile.

=Yes captain?=^= responded the calm male voice of the AI

=^= Can you please make a note regarding dietary requests and requirements for the lounge. Each special should constrain edible sustenance for all crew members.=^=

The computer worked a moment. =^= Note made, lounge parameters updated.=^= he responded.

Willow opened her box and ate a mouthful. “Ok?” She asked Walker.

Brad simply nodded, as his own mouth was full of sauced pork and rice, giving him a slightly chipmunk-esque appearance. Once he’d swallowed enough to form intelligible words, he spoke.

“Brilliant. The rice has just the right amount of stickiness without tasting like soggy mush, and the pork is hitting all my other taste receptors.”

Ooc:thank you!

Ic: Willow grinned and then chuckled as he swallowed and spoke. “See. Good lunch, good eating food.”

She took the opportunity to eat some of her own. “So…” she said and chewed then swallowed before continuing “you’ve been here long enough in this computer centre they call a medical suite. What do you think and how much do you love me for dragging you from the dusty halls of star-fleet medical to come join in the awesomeness.”

“Aesthetically, I love it,” Brad said. “Personally, I could have done without being turned into a neurotic mess by a bunch of psychogenic fungi, or half the paperwork.”

He paused to sip from the flask.

“You know, it’s the blessing and the curse of senior staff. We moan and complain about a lack of staff, but then when someone takes pity on us and gives us more staff, we moan and complain about the increase in paperwork.”

Cmdr. Dr. Brad Walker
Chief of Staff

Willow laughed. “I had a similar conversation with our executive officer. So many more people. It’s a bit of a culture shock.” She glanced around. “And the Holocrew…it’s taking some getting used to.”

Willow Taylor
CO

“Ah, that’s the easiest part,” Brad said. “I’m not treating them any different from any other crew member, and resolutely ignoring the way that they can just up and vanish on me if they’re needed more urgently elsewhere.”

He grinned. “After all, not doing that could drive me mad, and far be it from me to give the psychiatry department even more work.”

Cmdr. Dr. Brad Walker
Chief of Staff

Willow laughed again. “Don’t you dare they have enough on their plates.” She admonished in a non serious manner.

“So any complaints at all?”

Willow Taylor
CO
