OOC: Set prior to current sim.

IC: Newly arrived on board from his previous posting, Connor left main engineering and his meeting with the Chief Engineer for his boarding physical in the sickbay. Connor’s engineering tricorder was at hand, even as he entered sickbay and waited to be seen by a doctor.

– Connor Hanson
Chief Engineer

While he waited, Connor turned on his engineering tricorder amd began to scan the circuitry of the biobeds to ensure they were all operational and fully functional.

  • Connor Hanson
    Chief Engineer

A younger, but not right out of the academy nurse approached the engineer. She was the kind of nurse you knew that you had better never cross. She had that walk, the one that said she had people to take care of and too much to do, so don’t waste the time she gave you. Equally obvious was that she was the motherly type that would hold your hand or hug you if you needed it or not, would sneak you milk and cookies behind the doctor’s back, and make you take your medicine. Claire had never seen this particular officer before, and she made it a point to remember faces. Sickbay could be upsetting enough without being a ‘stranger,’ and Claire, to date, had never met a stranger. “Hello Lt. I’m Nurse Temple, or Nurse Claire if you prefer.” She glanced at the open tricorder, “Do we have a work order, or are you just keeping busy while you wait?”

NE Nurse Claire Temple

Connor laughed nervously as he was addressed, “sorry Nurse Temple,” he said, turning to her, “I’m new to the Saracen, and am here for my boarding physical. I thought I’d be proactive while waiting and make sure none of your biobeds needed repairs. They all seem to be in working order. I’m Connor Hanson, an Engineer,” he looked at his engineering tricorder, “obviously. Nice to meet you.”

  • Lt Connor Hanson, CE

Claire smiled, “Well we will never object to that. It’s a pleasure to meet you.” Claire offered her hand. “Hanson…you’re the new engineering chief? Most of the DHs prefer to see the chief, Dr. Knight. I can go get her if you don’t mind waiting, or Dr. Asimina is available.” Claire led him over to a biobed and after he had a seat she started the bed to start its scans and pulled his medical record up on the main display.

Nurse Temple

“I am happy with any doctor, Nurse Temple,” Connor said with a smile, as he shook her hand, “I’m sure Dr Knight has a lot of work on her plate.”

His chart would be fairly basic with only a minor imbalance between a couple of vitamins.

Ooc - feel free to add in something else as well if you like - nothing incapacitating but just something you like.


OOC: sounds good.

Claire smiled, “Alright, I’ll grab Dr. Asimina, so we can get you cleared.”. She disappeared around the corner and a moment later another woman, blonde hair, blue eyes, in medical blue and lab coat appeared. “Hello Lt. Hanson. I’m Dr. Asimina.” Her voice was different, slightly monotone and higher pitch, and her enunciation slightly thick. Two external implants just above and behind her ears peaked out from under her hair. She flipped open her tricorder and glanced at the screen showing his medical record. “May I?” She asked holding up the small hand scanner from her tricorder. “Your record says you have a vitamin deficiency. How are you feeling?”

Asimina, med

“Please do,” Connor replied, fascinated by her voice and the implants. He did hsi best not to stare, “sleeping has been tough for a while now. I put it down to changing missions, but maybe there’s more to it than that.”

He paused, and then said, “is it something to be concerned about, Doctor?”

  • Lt Hanson, Chief Engineer

Hannah noticed him looking at her implants and pointed at them. “It’s okay to be curious. It doesn’t offend me.”

Connor smiled at her, and then he signed to her.

You are a Cairn, aren’t you?
It was Federation standard sign language, it was slow, uncertain, but it was clearly not him just idly moving his fingers and hands around.

“I had a classmate for a year or two who was deaf. We learnt sign language to help her feel welcome and part of the class. Why should the expectation only be that you have to speak to communicate? It’s been a while, but …” he slipped out of the spoken language and signed again
I seem to have triggered it
His face was concerned at that and he stopped signing, reverting to speech once again, “That was the word for remembered, wasn’t it?” Then when he next spoke he both signed and spoke, “sorry Doctor”
Sorry, Doctor

Hannah smiled and shook her head. Her hands were busy, “No I’m human. Cairn have large fleshy protrusions on the side of their head because of their advanced telepathy. They have no vocal chords and use voice enhancers implanted where the larynx should be. Their hearing is fine though. I was born deaf.”

Hannah closed the tricorder and replaced the scanner and dropped it in her pocket. Her hands flowed, almost like a dance, through the signs, but she also used her voice. “It was kind of you to do that for your classmate. Actually what you signed,” Hannah brought two closed hands in front of her and pushed them out spreading her hands open, repeating his sign, “was ‘triggered.’ Remembered is this.” Hannah touched her right thumb just above her right eyebrow and then brought it down to rest on top of her left thumb. “But ‘trigger’ is a good substitute, indicating your memory of signing was triggered.” She waved off the apology, “Don’t apologize. It’s refreshing to see someone else using sign.”

Glancing back down at the readings Hannah smiled and shook her head, “Nothing too concerning. You are showing a vitamin D deficiency. Which is pretty normal for someone serving on a star ship. The main source of Vitamin D is sunlight, and we don’t get a lot of that serving on a starship. I can give you something for it, but I would suggest making use of the UV lights in your quarters for a short time every day. Lack of vitamin D can also affect your sleep cycle. Other than that you shows signs of a little dehydration. Do you have any dry or itchy skin?”

Asimina, med

“The UV lights, got it. Itchy skin? Oh yes, on my left leg jfrom the knee down. I thought I must have been bitten by something.” Connor replied, “is that serious?”

  • Connor Hanson, Chief Enineer

Hannah pulled the tricorder back out and flipped it over. “Do you mind rolling up your left pant leg? We’ll just make sure it’s not a bug bite or anything else.” She moved the small scanner over his leg, just to make sure. “The dehydration is mild and not too concerning, but the first sign is dry itchy skin. Because there isn’t enough moisture in the body. Then as it gets worse it can lead to headaches and nausea. In your case increasing your water intake by a couple of glasses a day is enough. There are some replicator recopies for drinks with enhanced electrolytes that will help as well.”

Asimina, med
