Tia’s voice came back over the comms. “=^=No one’s answered me, yet. The pod seems stable. Medical is welcome, but not sure what they can do unless we plan to crack this open.=^= Her voice seemed slightly distracted as she answered and continued her investigation of the pod.

=/\= Okay. We are sending over Doctor Hunter from Sickbay to assist. And the Ship’s archaeologist and anthropologist will beam over with him. =/\= Glen replied.

=/\=There is no way to get her genetic makeup without opening the pod and I don’t think its a good idea to do so at least not at the present moment =/\= doctor Hunter’s voice was heard over the comms =/\= In my opinion it may do more harm then good =/\=.

“If it were my kid, I’d have defensive systems ready,” Hal said. “Make sure that they scan for any energy spikes.”

=/\= Hal is concerned about defensive systems attached to the pod. He says to remember to check for energy spikes if you touch it. If you believe it to be safe, I’m happy to beam the whole thing back to the Merrimack and then look at it here. We could isolate it in a shuttlebay. Glen over. =/\=

=./\= Captain the male child and the pod can be safely transported to our ship =/.\= the doctor’s deep voice was heard over the comm =/\= We’re also bringing two spheres as the scans show something organic inside just for medical and perhaps the science lab would work on =/\= obviously it would ultimately be Glen’s decision.

For all he knew it would be filled with clay ..he mused to himself.

=/\= Doctor Hunter? Before I transport the whole kit and caboodle across, how did you determine that it’s safe? And the transporter filter is likely to freak out if the spheres contain organic matter. We’d need to bypass the safety protocols! =/\=

Hunter could be heard clearing his throat =/\= Captain from my scans the male child is stable ,obviously we cannot determine more not without opening the pod and I would not recommend it at this point. The transporter could easily transport both the the pod with the child in it ,what I’m not sure is if it be of benefit or harmful to transport it directly to the statis unit in sickbay .=/\=.

=/\=Sir the spheres outer layer can be found on earth as well, its common steel =/\= . The doctor would have much preferred not to tell the Captain over the comm but he had no choice =/\= Sir we can confidently say the human body is organic =/\= .

“Hal, do you concur?” Glen asked his COS.

<reply from Hal>

If it was okay with his COS then it was okay with Captain Glen. He made reply, =/\= It was the organic content of the sphere I was concerned about rather than the shells, but we can try and see what the transporter says about them. The child should be okay to bean over to Sickbay while in stasis and you can decided whether to wake him up over here. =/\=

= /\=Aye Captain=/\= Hunter responded =/\= Though its up to the CMO who has to take that decision =/\=.

=/\= I’ll inform the Transporter Chief that you have an item to beam over. Glen out! =/\=

=/\= Aye Captain=/\= came Hunter quick response . We’ll beam to the ship after the child =/\=.

=/\= Chief. Captain Glen here on the Bridge. The away party have a stasis box to beam directly to Sickbay containing an unidentified, unknown species of alien child… yes, incredible! Please set the parameters of the Transporter to deal with that. They also have some steel spheres containing organic matter to analyse which the Transporter filters may not like. I’ll let you determine if it is safe, chemically and virus free, but if it is, then I authorise that you can beam them safely and directly to the biohazard lab for further analysis. Glen over! =/\=

The CMO stepped on the bridge, she felt more refreshed after some hrs of rest and heard the Captain giving orders.

‘’Captain maybe we should leave the child in his pod instead of transferring him to our statis unit. We’ll watch over him while in sickbay and deal with any problems that may arise?’‘ she questioned ,For the present time there was a lot of’ if’s‘ Cross gazed at Glen ‘’You know take it step by step’‘.

“You may have been misinformed as I have stated no preferences here. You’re the CMO, and in matters of preserving life, you’re the expert! So, I’ll defer to whatever you think has the best chance of reviving the child alive. What I would say is that I don’t like alien technology; or tech that we have no understanding of, running on the Merrimack. However, if Tia and William have checked the pod over and believe it to be safe, then that’s good enough for me. It appears to be similar to our own stasis units. And of course, it makes total sense not to disturb the child before awakening them. Anyhow, I’ve already given your Doctor Hunter permission to beam the whole thing over to Sickbay. It is being arranged right now, actually. They’ve requested senior medical be available in Sickbay when it arrives, so you’ll want to get down there, ‘Stat!’ as you medics say!”

She was about to roll her eyes but decided against it ‘’Captain just came over to check if any thing has changed..I’ll head to sickbay as of now ‘’ and with a quick nod Cross left.

Some time later...........

Cross back in her office contacted Glen =/\= Captain,the pod with the male child is now in sickbay and according to the scans everything seem stable…I shall keep you informed on the child status....over? =/\=.

=/\= Acknowledged. Keep me posted of any developments. Glen out! =/\=
