Posted by Lieutenant Sheleah Ruby (Diplomatic Officer / CNS) in Holodeck 2: Little Lost Rex (tag: Jenn)
This was the first time Sheleah had ventured into one of the Saracen’s holodecks. They were standard but the programs people created told a lot about this ship’s crew. She wasn’t here on a counseling assignment though. today was all about her and Rex having a little environmental R&R. She had wanted some moderate hiking and lots of forest with the promise of a picnic at the end. After programming that, and several other parameters, she and rex stepped into a wonderfully sunlit morning in a small clearing with several trails leading away.
Some looked to be quite easy and others a bit more rocky.
Kneeling down she unfastened Rex’s harness and leash putting them away in a small pack.
“Alright my boy, let’s take a walk.” she said and turned towards one of the intermediate trails.
For his part, Rex always liked these types of outings. Today he had decided that he was a big boy and could leave momma to her own devices for a while and so darted off in the opposite direction.
Hannah was looking for something to do other than sit in her quarters or wander the decks bored. She didn’t really mind being bored or on her own, but she liked socializing too. She scanned the holodeck schedule looking for something, not solitary to do. The screen blinked as it refreshed. Someone had loaded a group program. Forested hiking trails, picnic areas, lots of simulated outdoor space. Right up Hannah’s alley. She changed into jeans, t-shirt and jacket, and hiking boots and practically jogged her way to the holodeck.
No one was waiting outside and the display said the program was running so she slipped in through the doors and waited for the door and arch to disappear. She breathed in, it wasn’t quite as good as the real thing, but it was close. Hannah set off toward the trails hoping to find another person. “Helloooo!”
