Hravish had worked most of the morning scrounging up the tough polymer mating to wrap the support column in the deck 8 gym. Now that it was ready he set down his bag, and brought out the training weapons and began to work them against the post.

Chowing first the Kal’hris, The Chan began to strike the post with the axe, first a diagonal blow from right shoulder to left hip, then left shoulder to right hip. Followed buy a slash at mid chest from right to left then left to right. Then he slashed up from the right hip to shoulder and then the left hip to right shoulder. As he repeated the pattern his blows fell faster and with increasing force. He began to change the pattern of blows working the post as a boxer works a heavy bag.


Mike decided it was time to hit the gym a bit. He felt he spent way too much time in the engineering, arranging plans and lists of things to repair.
His attention was immediately drown by the chopping sound. He met with many training techniques, but chopping… wasn’t really one of them.

“My, my… were you a lumberjack, before joining the federation?” Mike asked the man.

Pausing, Hravish ended with a flourish. “No I am afraid, Andorian Home guard. Would you care to try the kal’hris?” With a handle the length of the Chan’s arm from fingertips to elbow and weighing less than two pounds the axe was not particularly unwieldy. “Mind the back spike, Blunted as it is it will still leave a mark.”


“Sure. It’s been a while since i last held something like this. And if i remember correctly, i got blisters after chopping just one tree down.” Mike said.

He took the offered kal’hris and first made two slow strikes in the air to get the feel of the weapon. Then he stepped closer to the pole and made a few accurate strikes, though not using all that much strength.

He nodded as he handed the weapon back. “Handles very well. You train a lot with melee weapons?” Security used to be Mike’s domain, and he felt he should know a bit more about what skills security officers had on board their ship.

“When I can, as you know we still practice Dueling to settle petty squabbles on Andor. As a security officer I have little opportunity to use my old skills, but it’s good exercise.” The expert way the Engineer handled the axe did not escape his notice either.” I see you have some skill with melee weapons. A rare skill among humans.”

Taking the kal’ris he placed it back in his bag and exchanged it for a curved short sword. The training blade, like the kal’ris was blunted and heavier than the ‘real’ thing. “Perhaps you would find the hrisal more to your liking?” His smile extenuating his scared cheeks
