Washington: This isn't how it was. This isn't right. What's going on?
::But the woman ignored him as she continued talking about the strange creatures.::

Washington: You're not Claire…
::She raised an eyebrow as she looked over at him. And yet she still didn't seem to acknowledge.::
DeVeau: They'll eat us from the inside.
Washington: What are you doing here?
DeVeau: What do you think? They all will, if we let them. We can’t let them.
::He looked at her and then around the bridge, which seemed to be darkening.::
Washington: This isn't real…
DeVeau: We’ve got to fight.
Washington: No, you're not supposed to be here.
::His voice grew stern.::
Washington: No! I said you're not supposed to be here! You were never here. You aren't Claire.
::He awoke with a slight gasp, taking a few seconds as his eyes adjusted to the surroundings of his quarters again.::
::He took a deep breath as he sat up.::
::What did it mean?::
::Well, he wouldn't get answers here. He got dressed and headed down to sickbay.::
((Sickbay, USS Invicta))
::Entering Sickbay, he found his chief medical officer standing over some samples he was looking at under a microscope.::
Washington: ::nods:: This won't take long. I wanted to check on the condition of Commander DeVeau. How is she?
