With whatever was going on in Sickbay at that moment, it was soon interrupted by a call from the XO:
=^=Bridge to Sick Bay, Captain is having a seizure and being transported for emergency care.=^=
Immediately after the Captain’s convulsing body materialized on the floor.
Zarath was still cursing a blue streak when the Captain materialized on the floor. Luckily two of the medical staff were on hand, and they quickly and efficiently moved the Captain up on to a biobed as the Andorian doctor began trying to diagnose what had gone wrong. For several tense moments, Tolar tried various dosages of medicines and inhibitors until an odd combination finally seemed like it should address the issues showing up on the scans. Something in D’vorak’s brain was short circuiting and causing a bad reaction with the synaptic connections to his implants. The entire episode seemed to be forming a feedback loop that was causing the Captain’s nervous system to overload with the signals from the implants, causing a seizure state.
If Zarath’s combination of synaptic inhibotors and inaprovaline worked, the Captain should stabilize… However, there was no way at present to predict when his brain would recover from the trauma enough to regulate itself again. Effectively, there was no way to know when, or even if Johann would wake up…
Vora at least had had the wherewithal to compose herself at least a little before she stepped into Sickbay, but there was no mistaking her almost frantically worried expression. “What happened? Is he okay?” she managed to spit out as she approached, trying to not get in anyone’s way. Breath, Vora. Breath. She forced herself to take a shaky breath.

Zarath took Vora’s arm gently and led her to a seat along the bulkhead. He looked her in the eye carefully, respecting her too much to sugarcoat the news. “Honestly, I’m not sure what exactly happened to trigger the seizures. As best I can tell, his implants were affected oddly by the radiation from the star we’re close to. The implants were overloading his synapses, I’ve had to chemically block his brain from receiving signals from the implants for now. Brain activity is slowly returning to a more normal state, but I have no way of determining when he’ll regain consciousness.” Tolar shifted his weight uneasily. “He will regain consciousness, I can assure you of that. His Brain chemistry just needs time to settle, there wasn’t any direct damage that I was unable to repair…”
