Sharah nodded, “I know, Cpt., and I appreciate that immensely.” She ket out a weary sigh, “It’s a difficult situation for me. It is not a matter of unwillingness, but a matter of being lost and controlled by it. It is one thing to over hear something and then try to interpret. To actively search it out and read other’s thoughts, to speak with them, is very dangerous for me. It is a very delicate and precarious line I walk.” She held up her hands in a sort of defeated gesture. “The person who asked is aware of this, of the risk to me.”

The implication was that this person should damn well know better, but knowing and understanding were two different things. “I’m not going to pretend I’m thrilled our shakedown cruise is generating interpersonal conflict amongst my senior officers, but I suppose it’s better now than another time.” Even their distress call was only as urgent as the time it took to get there.” McBride leaned back in his chair. “What do you need from me?”

Captain McBride, Starfleet CO

“I’m not thrilled about it either, Cpt. I sincerely apologize that this is happening. I…I never would have thought he would have asked such a thing. We were quite close at one time. I would like to say that there will be no problem, no issue. We are capable of working it out calmly. But the person I thought he was would never have asked me such a thing.” Sharah shrugged slightly, “I don’t really need anything Cpt. I just thought…I should make you aware.” Sharah wasn’t good at standing her ground with people. Her empathy made it too easy for her to understand and feel what they did. This whole situation was embarrassing for her as well as scary implications.

Jonathan gave her a small mile. “Doctor… Sharah. Look, crap happens. There’s always something. I’m sorry that you have to deal with this, but there’s no apology needed. It’s not your fault it came up. But I get it. No one likes their personal matters being an issue at work. We’ll deal with it. And if for some reason the situation can’t be resolved on your own, talk to me again. I promise I’ll do my best to keep it under wraps. We all have to work together, we’ll find a way forward, okay?”

Captain McBride, Starfleet CO

“Thank you, Captain.” She took a deep breath, “I really do appreciate that.” Sharah felt far too inexperienced for this. This kind of thing happened to junior officers. That’s what she should be. This whole thing was insane. 3 years almost 4 to Lt Cmdr…crazy. “I should probably get started on pulling the crew manifest and their medical records.”

Fayth, CMO

He held up a finger. “Actually, I have that for you. But it’s a civilian research ship, so no medical records so far. That doesn’t mean we can’t get them, but it might not be before we reach them.” He grabbed a PADD and transferred the information over before sliding the device to her.

On it were four names:

Dr. Sian Kaob- Lead Scientist (Geologist) and Project Coordinator [Human/Napean]
Archibald (Archie) Keenan- Pilot [Human]
T’Laren- Biologist and Medic [Vulcan]
Temmick Roul- Engineer and Physicist [Cardassian]

Sharah scanned the manifest, “We may have to replicate blood and plasma. This is a Federation Science Council vessel? I should be able to request their basic medical files through the science council. You said 10 hours? That should be time to get them back, with a priority medical request. I’ll use one of the auxiliary stations to set up a direct link with them.”

Fayth, CMO

McBride gave a nod. “It’s worth a try. Anything else I can do for you, Doctor?” he asked, more out of courtesy than anything. She had things to do and they had discussed the issue that brought her up to the bridge. He was content to let things unfold as they would.
