Vora has listened attentively, and of course committed the entire description to memory. But the look of incredulity on her face likely spoke volumes. “I can see the appeal for some, but nope, count her out,” she said lightly, trying to smile, but the pain was quite strong and rather distracting. “But count me out. I will do the an EV suit when I have to, but Zero-G I really don’t like.”

The fingertips of her left hand were tapping against her thigh and Vora looked upwards again, wishing the lifts were just a little bit bigger. “I don’t like the distorted sense of reality on the holodeck,” she said. It wasn’t quite a conversation prompt, but it was something.

Avik fully understood. Unlike humans, Vulcans didn’t sugarcoat the truth. It helped no one and the XO knew the moment Zorell tried it, the absence of knowledge would’ve been discovered. Likely followed by emotions of anger or betrayal. Feeling a slight unsettledness in the back of her head, she tensed briefly. A few breaths quickly put an end to the emotions trying to overwhelm her. She refused to lose her control here and in front of Zorell.

A moment of silence passed.

“From that statement, one individual can speculate that you rarely spend time on the holodeck. What do you do in your free time to relax?” Avik asked, altering her tactics.

She hoped the question would force a thoughtful reply from Zorell and help distract the Science Officer. It certainly was better than sharing things about herself. Avik considered herself a rather boring individual in comparison to most of her crew and she accepted it. Too much excitement and adventure would turn anyone into a nervous wreck over time.

“I like music, and am often playing the guitar. Though I am working on different instruments now, like the piano,” Vora offered. “But I have friends I like to spend time with. And of course, I have my son, so while that isn’t relaxing necessarily, and he doesn’t require constant attention, he does deserve my attention, so I try to make sure I give it where I can. “

What about you, Commander? What do you do…” She was going to say ‘for fun’ but realized that might not apply here. “To relax? When you’re not doing your climbing, of course.”

“I listen to classical music and audiobooks. Not the most exciting thing, but peaceful and increases the mind’s mental capabilities. I also enjoy dissecting a good mystery. From how the author presented it to the logical reasons for the clues, plot points and more. Some of them are a bit too obvious.” Avik explained, relieved they had found a common ground somewhere.

“I’ve also listened to books on subjects I’m lacking in, including the Earth classic Peace and War. Sadly, I don’t think I can properly explain the subject.” She added, noting how hard it would’ve been to find the best description and shorten to the easiest meaning.

Some things were just too challenging explaining, even for a Vulcan.
