Leah broke into a wide smile. “You know, a similar line of thought went through my mind when they asked me, and that’s sort of why I broached my question the way I did. Because you’re absolutely right, brains work different for different types of species. So I propose we shift the way we look at what I’ve been requested to do. Let’s frame this as a learning opportunity. I think my colleagues can do better and in order for them to think more broadly about how mental health applies to different species, they need to be exposed to different versions of it. And I would like to learn myself.” She lifted and waved the PADD. “And so no one can accuse me of no doing my due diligence, I suggest we keep meeting for awhile, just on the off chance that you did develop symptoms later. Because trauma isn’t always a linear process, which we also need to consider.”

“Would that be alright with you? Would you mind helping me understand better so that I can help others understand and not make the same mistakes?” Hart asked. It was both a request for collaboration and also a way for her to make sure he understood that this wasn’t some fascinating novelty but a concern she wanted to address one a wider scale.

“Of course. Anything I can do to help, I will.” he said flatly. And, after his actions on the Taliskar that caused them to be meeting under these circumstances, there was little to make anyone think that the sentiment was not a sincere one. “Should we begin now? I am happy to answer any questions you have about what happened.”

Kreed

“Sure!” Leah didn’t want to seem, what, overly eager? He wasn’t some novelty for her to study, but at the same time, she understood implicitly that such an experience would not necessarily come around again. And the more of a clear profile they had on Saurian psychology, the better served all Saurians in Starfleet would be.

Leah took a moment to set up a new document with her stylus and then lifted her gaze to Kreed. “So, when you do think over what happened on your ship, what are the first words that come to your mind?”

Kreed closed his eyes and thought on the events. “Chaos.” he said first. “Confusion.” was next. “Darkness. Fear. Irritation. Pain.” He opened his eyes and looked at her. “There are others, but those are first.”

Kreed

Leah nodded as she wrote. Later she knew it would be easier to record interviews with him, but right now she wanted to figure out how she wanted to approach this unique situation. “And what are the other words?”
