Warned of their impending arrival, the staff in the ER were ready for the emergency transport of the two individuals that had just been taken out of stasis.
“Female, half-Tyrellian, half-Human, projectile weapon injury to the abdomen. Pressure is 75 over 60 and falling. Pulse Ox at 82.”
“She’s tanking, get a blood cross-match and get them to replicate enough for mass transfusion protocol.”
“Whoa!” one of the nurses said as she arrived on the scene, wide-eyed. And then she swore even as she looked confused. “That’s, no, it can’t be!”
“What?” one of the ER docs, Nevin, said.
“She’s a dead ringer for Halai Cosgrove. But she doesn’t have any of the tattoos.”
“Cosgrove. Former head of Terraforming. You know, the former Starfleet one.”
The tech who went off the handle the blood rushed back. “No can do on blood. She’s Tyrellian, or least half. They need additional proteins or she’ll reject the blood, especially with her mixed genetics.”
“Where the hell are we supposed to get those? She needs surgery and we can’t stabilize her until we get some damn blood!”
Meanwhile, another team was looking over Akem aware that he was likely to wake up anytime now. “His condition is stable. Look him over carefully for any smaller injuries we might miss.”
Back at Halai’s bed, the staff were momentarily stumped until Nevin spoke up. “Cosgrove. What would they have done for her in this instance?”
“They would have had proteins in storage stasis.”
“But she never came back, did they send everything to her on Tyrellia?”
“Someone go find out!” Nevin said.
Meanwhile, the scans showed several things: not only did the bullet cause damage to multiple organs, but the system spat back an ID alert: Halai Cosgrove.

In a non-descript warehouse away from Sacred Heart, Eryn sat at a computer console, with multiple monitors and watched. She hated these days. She’d rather be in the field working than watching it. But it served a purpose and it was her turn. Her eyes darted back and forth across the screens watching the comings and goings around Oed, when the computer beeped and flashed and blinked at her. Halai Cosgrove? A quick look told her it was pinged from the hospital. Well that wasn’t good for Halai Cosgrove. “And vhy my dear is your name pinging my alarms? Hmm?” Turning to the key board Eryn initiated a search.
Halai Cosgrove (formerly a decorated Lieutenant in Starfleet) had been the Head of Science & Terraforming on Oed V from 2389-2395 until she resigned her position. This came weeks after she had been notably attacked in her villa and the attack had been traced to a small Tyrellian spiritual group. During the attack, they also abducted Halai’s half-sister Kristina Cosgrove and managed to remove her from the Oed system before the ports were locked down. Halai refused to press charges, but was determined to get her sister back. She took a leave from her duties and went to Tyrellia. She promptly resigned her position on Oed and has not set foot on the planet since. It is noted that she remained on Tyrellia, but Kristina returned to Oed safely with no adverse affects of her abduction. Halai has recently been named Tyrellia’s Cultural Ambassador. To date no formal explanation was given for the attack and abduction and the officials who knew about it are no longer on Oed V.
Meanwhile, the tech hurried back to the ER room where the apparent Halai Cosgrove lay. “They have the proteins in stasis still!”
Doctor Nevin nodded. “Get them to send the proteins to blood supply and have them have send ten units to OR One.”
“But what? her DNA says she’s Halai Cosgrove and we have her blood proteins. If we do nothing, she dies and the press will have a field day about how our negligence caused a former government official to bleed out in out ER. Now go!”
The tech hurried off.
“Pulse ox down to 71. Pressure 72 over 53.”
“All right people, let’s go!” And the team quickly moved the woman swiftly from the ER to the OR.
