He took a sip of his drink and placed it down on the table, folding his hands in his lap before responding “I could tell you that I requested this assignment; that i’m desperate to serve out in space and do my part to expand the borders of the Federation, new worlds and new civilization. Truth is, i’m a research scientist. In order to be assigned to a research command, I need to put in six months on a ship of the line to fill in this” he pointed to the empty third pip on his collar before continuing “I’m a damned good clinician and I will give my all to this ship and its crew, just as I did on Starbase 91 and at Starfleet Medical. Truth is, though, this is a stepping stone to something else.” He paused, taking up his glass again and sipping. He supposed, idly, that it might grow on him eventually. He wondered if he was perhaps a little too honest, but if one couldn’t be forthcoming with ones counsellor, who else?

Sinclair cocked his head to the side slightly. “And how do you feel about having to take time away from your research to fill in an empty line of your personnel record, Doctor?” and he took a sip of his own and set the cup back down.

He started to place his glass back down, but stayed his hand, preferring something to occupy them “The Saracen has research facilities, small as they may be. There’s no reason I can’t continue some of my research here. I was in the same position on Starbase 91, just with a larger lab and an office that didn’t have a storied history as a broom closet. I understand, as my father never did, that in order to work with the best, you had to join the best. I don’t want to spend the rest of my career at the whim of the Federation Research Council. I want to make a difference, and that means Starfleet, which means rules and procedures. I’m happy to follow those, inconvenient as they may be. I have a lot of life ahead of me to get things done. A six-month detour aboard a starship is hardly life-altering.
