((Sickbay, USS Gorkon))
Taeval: I don’t think sedating him is an option. He won’t be able to tell us anything, and getting pinned down and knocked out is only likely to make him more agitated when he comes back around.
She shot a look at Loxley, giving a small, quick smile to him before returning to the situation at hand. Ah, to think, they had just been planning on meeting up for dinner later on and watching a new show. That was Starfleet for you, always a new adventure around the corner!
Taeval: We need his name, at least. ::He paused for thought, and looked at his colleagues.:: We have the Triumphant’s manifest, yes? Could one of you check that? I don’t have the authorisation.
Taeval: ::Low,:: He’s got more agitated each time we’ve taken any equipment near him. Maybe Corliss could distract him, try to talk him down while we try to take some basic scans? I don’t think he’s hurt, but I’d hate to be wrong and only find out when he collapses.
She took a breath, sweeping both hands on her thighs before holding them out, palm up. She kept a small smile on her face, teeth covered, voice soft. An open, trusting source, to keep focus on, radiating calmness as best she could.
Fortune: Sir, I understand, you've been through a lot today, yes? All we would like to do is help you, okay? My name is Lieutenant Corliss Fortune, you're aboard the USS Gorkon.
Fortune: Hey, hey, focus on me, okay? Look, let's take some deep breaths, okay? ::she placed a hand on her chest, taking one step forward but no more.:: Deep breath in, deep breath out. Deep breath in...
She mimicked the breathing exercise slowly. It was one of many techniques they'd been taught in the beginning, how to mirror your movement with the patient to garner trust between each other. She took another breath in, looking him over before chancing another step forward.
Fortune: Deep breaths. I've got nothing on me, okay? We just want to help. Just focus on me, okay?
Reassure, repeat, relieve. Reassure, repeat, relieve. Although, it wasn't exactly true, she did have a phaser hidden away, and she wasn't exactly defenseless without a weapon. But if seeing them without weapons helped him, then that's what she would say.
