As Lovejoy came aboard the Merrimack, she thought it was best to go to sickbay and placed her physical before going onto her duty station on the bridge. She knew that it was best to come to the doctor first. As she walked into sickbay she said “Hello. Lt. Junior Grade Lovejoy here for a physical before going to duty.”
A nearby nurse heard her and made a beeline towards the new crew member ‘’Hi I’m nurse Kate would you please follow me ‘’ she looked the part of a pampered matron commonly displayed in society magazine, especially since she was about to go to that handsome doctor whom Kate adored, aside from the fact that Hunter never gave her a second glance.
‘’Doctor for a medical evaluation’‘ she said pointing to the Lt .Without raising his eyes from the Padd which the doctor was holding he just acknowledged with a simple nod.
‘’I’m doctor Hunter ‘’ he said by way of introduction ,now pointing to an empty biobed ‘’Just hop on and make yourself comfortable ‘’Hunter told Lovejoy with his usual soft voice.
Hunter never saw the nurse running to the bathroom as she wiped her eyes with the sleeve of her uniform.
“Of course”. She said as she walked to a biobed and sat down.
’‘ Lt, please do lay down for your medical and is there anything I should know beforehand ? ‘’Hunter asked, as he attached the diagnostic wand to the medical tricoder. Looking down at her he realized how relatively young she was,the doctor as usual would start a conversation during a medical for his own peace of mind which he considered an essential psychological assessment .
‘’So what made you join Star Fleet?’‘.
