Mandatory Medical

Posted on Sat May 16th, 2020 @ 3:02am by Lieutenant Nimeeh Vixil & Lieutenant Commander Andromeda Lightfeather 'Andi'

Mission: Under A Glassy Surface, Where We Don't Belong...
Location: Various/Medical

After Andi had been dismissed from speaking to the First Officer, she made a beeline for Medical, knowing that new crew had to have a medical so that the doctors would have updated information should something happen while on assignment. As she entered the lift and the doors closed "Medical" she said and the lift whisked her down and across, while she was moving she was reflecting how long it was taking, once again proving how big this ship really is.

It was after some time that the lift opened out onto the Medical Level, from the little she could see the place was massive, she walked up to the shiny surface panel on the wall and tapped in some commands "location of the CMO on this level" she said.

"Follow the arrows" the computer responded as some direction arrows showed up and Andi followed them slowly realising she was now some distance away from the lift she arrived in as she turned the corner and walked into the Medical she looked around and saw her quarry.

"Doctor Vixil!" she said loudly, thus alerting all that someone was in Medical.

Nim turned toward the source of the voice, as did several other people in the vicinity, a look of annoyance on her face as she raised a finger to her lips. "Sshhhh," she chastised as she approached the significantly taller woman. "Please Commander, have a little respect for other patients here in the facility, keep all voices down to a dull roar?" She set her arms on her hips, looking up, her purple eyes glinting with a hint of annoyance. "I'm Lieutenant Vixil, what can I do for you?"

Andi leans forward slightly with a smile "sorry doctor, never this many patients in medical on the last ship I served on, will remember to keep my voice down in future" she said quietly and then standing up straight again, but still speaking quieter. "As for why I am here, I am the new Security Chief, just finished speaking to the XO and I thought I would come to get my Medical done before I settle into my duties," Andi said standing at parade rest as in a relaxed posture with both hands resting on the small of her back.

Nim sighed. It was going to be a very long day at this rate. "Alright, why don't you grab a seat on the bed in room eight, I'll get my stuff and I'll be with you in a minute okay?"

Nodding Andi went over to the indicated bio-bed and jumped up on it and waited while she scanned the room, even Medical was ten times the size of all known ships Med bays, they even had wards this would be an interesting posting.

Heading into her office, Nim grabbed a PaDD and synced it to the medical database, pulling up Andi's medical history, scanning through it as she grabbed a tricorder from her desk. it all looked pretty straight forward. Making her way back to room eight, she knocked on the door as she stepped through. "Right, so, it seems your medicals are pretty up to date."

Smiling "yes I had one before I left earth in my fighter to get to this ship, but rules state that any new officer coming aboard a starship must report to medical as soon as for their mandatory regardless of if they had one prior to their new posting and to be honest the CMO has more jobs to do than to chase around after a reluctant officer who is trying to avoid their check-up, so I came here after speaking with the XO" Andi simply said.

"Anything changed since your last medical?" Nim asked, making notes in the PaDD. "No new issues? No unexplained aches or pains? Sleeping and eating well?"

'So formal, does not seem to be your traditional doctor' Lightfeather thought to herself but simply answered "no, nothing new besides a little excited, first post where I am not the First Officer of that assignment" she cheerfully said.

Nim smiled warmly. "We all need something to be excited about." She worked quickly, running scans and basic tests, all the while continuing with the smattering of small talk. "Do you have family joining you on this assignment?"

Looking indifferent about the question "None" she began "it to all my years at the Academy for my father to accept that I joined Starfleet, being the daughter of a tribal Chieftain I was expected to marry and have kids. By joining Starfleet I negated that and for about four years of my training my father made it a point to ignore me, my mom gave me all the support I needed, but my Papi, well let's just say an Angry Klingon is more congenial than he was. On my graduation, he was there standing proudly watching me receive my diploma. I do not know what mom said to him, but he actually gave me a bear hug, Mr I am too good to acknowledge my daughter joining Starfleet gave me a hug and he actually smiled while doing it, vexes me to this day, what about you Doctor?" Andi answered with a question of her own at the end.

Nim shook her head. "My parents are back on the Trill homeworld. I'm an only child. My last relationship just ended unexpectedly, so it's just me." She shrugged slightly. "It happens."

She flipped the tricorder closed and offered a quick smile. "I think you're good Commander, I've got pretty much everything I need. It'll take a few days to run a few the full range of tests, but if I need anything else, I can let you know. Otherwise, I think we're good here."

She smiled "Thanks doctor, now to duty, if I am cleared fit for it?" Lightfeather asked still wonderstruck that a ship had actual wards in it this was her first starship with such a thing, but it was flying Starbase or as she referred to it on approach a large barn with engines.

"You're all cleared from my perspective Commander," Nim replied with a bright smile. "I'll see you around."
