((Primary Sickbay, Deck 7, USS Gorkon))

 

Due a physical and in the midst of testing freshly calibrated equipment and running diagnostics (in partnership with appropriate teams throughout the ship), the El-Aurian hybrid sought out the assistance of a colleague, newfound acquaintance Doctor Loxley. He could see himself being good friends with the scruffy guy.

 

With chats of castles and Earth, Bry also found calm in the other man’s bedside manner. It was to be admired and replicated in his future interactions with patients… errr, crewmembers.

 

That was going to take some time getting used to.

 

Tagren-Quinn: That sounds incredible. I’ve not had a chance to do that type of sight-seeing, but maybe I will sometime in the future. ::the biobed made a sound:: Oh yeah, my knee… I’ve not had any problems with it, honestly, but it does get stiff every once and a while.

He watched as Lox highlighted the alert on the biobed to examine it in more detail. 

Loxley: Hmm, superficial scar tissue mostly, nothing to worry about, but it could increase your chances of arthritis some day. But I’m sure you already knew that, doctor.

 

Things to look forward to.

Tagren-Quinn: Yep.

 

There was a small pause as Loxley continued to look at his records and scans, like a good physician would.

Loxley: Let’s see… your cardiovascular system is fine, your immune system is, well, robust, everything else looks perfectly fine, too. ::he tapped the command to complete the scan and submit the medical report:: So I declare you fit for service.


Tagren-Quinn: Wonderful!

Loxley: If you’ve not booked in to see the ship counsellor yet, I suggest you do so. But physically you’re all good.

 

Ah, yes, he wondered how Lox would approach that detail and he didn’t let him down; he was professional, confidential (especially given the fact that the man was in a relationship with said ship’s counselor). That alone allowed him to slowly gain trust in the other man, a colleague, and made him look forward to working with him.

Tagren-Quinn: Yes, thank you. I have that on my list of to-do’s…

 

After one more appointment from the one he had been seeing for the last few years. It was going to be a rocky transition, having an established good and trusted relationship with another, but a necessary one.

 

Change was going to be a factor that he’s always needed to be prepared to navigate. That could be said for anyone though.


Counselor Fortune was highly praised though, so he had no qualms or reservations with working with her. 

Loxley: I must admit, my curiosity is always piqued when I see another hybrid.

 

With him and the equipment deemed fit for next mission, Bry got back to his feet and reached for his PADD, updating the checklists he had been working on before grinning up at Loxely.

Tagren-Quinn: Same. I think… you indicated that you are a specialist in genetics, right?

 

Loxley: Response

 

Tagren-Quinn: That's neat. I’d love to pick your brain on some things someday.

 

Loxley: Response

 

Tagren-Quinn: The funny thing is, I didn’t really know I was a hybrid until I was about seven… or something like that. It’s a long story but I grew up in a human household so the whole El-Aurian thing was a shocker to me. I didn’t have any real interaction with El-Aurian family until I was a little older.

 

He wondered how Loxley’s experiences were, not only from a medical or physical sense, but from a cultural one. Did family blend the realities together, or lean more one way? Everyone’s experiences were unique. 

 

Loxley: Response
