Stanley had been feeling a bit depressed after the previous day. He had been over the happenings again and again in his mind trying to find what it was he had done wrong. Now he actually was finding himself a bit depressed. He had come to the galley this morning hoping against all hope that the replicator might be working.

Stanley decided to make it easy. Something simple for breakfast so that he wouldn't confuse the poor thing. So, although he was in the mood for fried bread with onions and peppers, he made his order simple, he hoped. "Computer scrambled eggs with salsa." He realized at the last moment that adding the salsa might be a bit much but all he could do now was to wait and see. The result might be amusing. He was instead pleasantly surprised when he got his order.

He was all smiles as he went to have a seat and eat his breakfast. But then, feeling as if his luck may have finally turned, he walked over the replicator and asked for five ounces of salt pork.” Once again, he was amazed as he stood there like a child who has just opened the present that he wanted for Christmas. He laughed and took the pork to his table and finally sat down to eat. Sighing contentedly, he went over his orders in his head versus what he had thus far not accomplished. Not one interview yet. And he could not very well wait forever. He decided then that he must move things along even if he had to conduct interviews at workstations. He smiled as he tasted the eggs once again releasing his inner child as he rubbed his stomach in contentment. Nodding his head, he smiled and murmured to himself. “Yes, maybe today will be better, “

Dr. Stanley Wong

Hunter came in looking more like a zombie then an ordinary guy, after the night shift all he could think of was to eat and sleep.With a plate full of unhealthy food. He looked around wondering where to sit ‘’Guess all the night shift workers headed to the Gallery before me’‘ he muttered to himself ‘’Just my luck ‘’he mumbled some more to himself.His thoughts went back to when he was still staying at home ,he would often hear his father shout ‘A hungry man is an angry man’ and him and his siblings would disappear from the kitchen.

Hunter Dr.

Wong had just swallowed a mouthful of spicey egg and looked up as he saw Hunter. He weighed his options then in his mind as he ran through the things he hoped to accomplish today. He had to visit the seldom used biomed lab. And he had thought to schedule Lieutenant Commander Milligan for a chat. But now here was Doctor Hunter. He weighed his options. No, he decided. He would let Hunter go and possibly talk to Milligan unless of course Cross changed her mind. This was his fondest hope. Then he would feel better for he hated to not be able to do his job correctly.

Swallowing his food and dabbing his napkin at his mouth he smiled as he looked up at Hunter. He nodded his head at Hunter and spoke in a friendly voice saying, “Ah Mr. Hunter! We meet again! You look exhausted my friend did you have a rough shift?”

Dr. Stanley Wong

Hunter was eating sanding up ‘’Ah Mr Wong good morning ‘’ he replied after picking up a fried sausage and shoved it in his mouth ‘’Rough shift,you bet! The patients sleep during the day and at night they develop every illness in the medical books,bless the universe for placebos ‘’ bacon and eggs were next ‘’ I couldn’t be more happier to see Cross coming in for her day shift,what about you how are the interviews going?’‘ the doctor asked .

Hunter Dr.

Stanley smiled at the mention of interviews. “Actually, I am not sure. After all my years in practice I think I may have met my match. Your doctor Cross came in and grilled me about why I was here why I wasn’t wearing a uniform, what branch of service I belonged to.” Stanley stopped for a moment and finally waved his hand. ” A great number of questions actually. All asked in the tone of voice an interrogator usually uses. And then after I carefully and to the best of my ability answered all of her questions she asked if she were free to go. Is she always so moody?”

Dr. Stanley Wong

‘’And when she asked you if she could go,what did you answer?’‘ he asked while looking down at the empty plate .Now he focused on Stanley ‘’From what I heard she has had a rough childhood and the extra gene she inherited without any kind of stimulation ....’‘ the doctor stopped dead in his tracks ‘’Sorry but as a doctor I am bound by confidentiality,as long as there is no danger to her or a third person but I guess you have been given all the information you need on every crew member on this ship’‘.

Hunter Dr.

Stanley looked over at Hunter very confused for a moment before he could answer. Finally, he answered Hunter saying,” What else could I do? I told her that I couldn’t very well force her to stay and talk or even to take the basic test that I give before we begin to have a conversation. Unfortunately, she chose to leave.” H paused then as he tried to understand the rest of what Hunter had said. “And what’s this about her DNA? Are my records wrong and she isn’t completely human? The records I got showed nothing but ordinary DNA for a human. And if anyone has told her that part of any problem that she has is due to DNA then I would very much like to meet them and have them promptly disbarred. It’s been established for almost two hundred years now that DNA has very little to do with behavior. The amount in fact is only twenty to sixty percent. And this is just a basis. A foundation if you will upon which all of one’s environment and experiences build any person’s personality. ” Frowning then with a look of concern on his face he finished as he said to Hunter. “If someone has told Lieutenant Hunter different than this. If they have fed her this old outdated and cruel information, then this could be a reason for her behavior. She may not think that she has a choice but to have a certain behavior!”

Dr. Stanley Wong

‘’Stanley its more complicated ,it was a gene inserted into a fetus in an underground lab so to speak .call her again she’ll explain’‘ Hunter advised him ‘’And do consider meeting with her somewhere else then in that closet ‘’ the doctor did not offer any explanation as to why ‘’Got to go, have a good day’‘. Raising his hand to the psychiatrist he left heading to his quarters wondering what a good day could be meeting Cross,maybe the psychiatrist knowledge of how to deal with certain individuals had been limited?.

Hunter Dr.

Stanley frowned and scratched his head as he watched Hunter leave. He was quite certain by now that the man had more things wrong with him than his flaming narcissism. The fact that a fetus which Cross had been carrying might have been injected with some DNA would have less impact than anything else. Stanley finally gave up on the puzzle. Evidently either Cross was being fed bad information by someone or there was something done to her that no one understood. Either way he wouldn’t be able to do anything until Cross felt like speaking to him. He finished his meal then and then took the PaDD that he was for once carrying and left Cross a message. ‘Doctor Cross. I was wondering if you might like to meet with me yet. Stanley.”
