Séan had gotten free of his duties for the day, well all except for the one that got put off and forgotten about. He sighed for the millionth time as he made his way to the infirmary. He really didn’t mean to forget the required physical but time had gotten away from him. He arrived at his destination, took a breath and straightened his uniform, then entered into the waiting area. He moved to the reception desk and gave the person sitting at it a warm, if slightly shy smile. “Hello. I’m told that this is where physical for Starfleet personnel can be done.”

Counselor Iven

The medic at the desk smiled, “Of course, Lt. We can take care of that.” The man slid a palm biometric reader towards him. “If you will scan your palm the computer will pull up your medical file.”

Séan put his palm on the reader.

The man nodded and transfered the file to a PaDD. “This way.” He led him to a biobed about halfway into the room and flipped on the sensors. “Have a seat. Dr. Fayth will be with you in just a moment.” The medic walked over to a short, ebony curly haired woman in Medical blue and handed her the PaDD. She took it with a smile and then turned back to the child and father she was with. She spoke with them a moment longer and then gave the girl a lollipop as they left.

He sat on the biobed and waited. The wait wasn’t long and his mind wasn’t bored.

She walked over and set the PaDD down. “Lt. Iven. It’s nice to see you. I’m Dr. Fayth. How are you settling in?” As she spoke she pulled out and flipped open a tricorder. Pulling out the hand held wand, “May I?”

Fayth, SFCMO

“Hello Doctor Fayth.” Séan returned the greeting with his rumbling deep voice. “I’ve been settling in alright. A planet is so much different from a ship or a starbase that I still haven’t quite adjusted to not feeling that vibration.”

Counselor Iven

Her obsidian eyes danced, “That does take some getting used to. Ancient seafarers used to report getting land sickness after being at sea for long stretches of time. Experiencing any nausea or vertigo now that you’re planetside?” Her hand moved over and around him as she took basic scans and then compared them to his last recorded physical.

Fayth, SFCMO

Séan shook his head as the medical scanning commenced. “Nothing like that fortunately. My balance isn’t affected by the change in location. It’s just the ambient feeling is different. I’ve spent the majority of my life in space so going planetside always takes some adjustments. Even Earth standard gravity varies almost imperceptibly on different ships. My childhood was on Alpha Eridani which is heavier than Earth and then the rest of my life in space, so every change is new.” The scan would line up with his last physical about two weeks prior. He showed to be in good health with a surprisingly low body fat given his stature. His records would show that he had a scar circling his right thigh that scar removal treatment had been refused.

Counselor Iven

She smiled softly. “I had a similar but opposite experience, the first time I went into space. The constant vibration took some getting used to.” She slipped the scanner back into her tricorder and closed it. “You have some inoculations that haven’t had a booster in awhile. Being on a colony this size and the number of refugees arriving, we’re requiring everyone close to time or it’s been over 5 years to get them. I don’t see anything in your file against inoculations. Is it alright if I give them to you?”

Fayth, SFCMO
