Cleared to Fly

Posted on Thu Sep 20th, 2018 @ 9:59am by Lieutenant Commander Mnhei'sahe Dox & Lieutenant Asa Dael

Mission: Holographic Horrors
Location: Sickbay
Timeline: 2395, Stardate 72675.1

After a meeting with the Captain, Melanie Dox made her way down to the main sickbay of the starship she found herself newly assigned to, the U.S.S. Hera. She was required to be checked out by the ships Chief Medical Officer.

Anxious to be cleared to fly, Melanie walked briskly as the doors to sickbay hissed open. Upon spotting the first visible officer with a blue uniform, she introduced herself. "Lieutenant Junior Grade Melanie Dox, reporting for my physical as ordered."

The fair skinned doctor approached with a welcoming smile. “Hello Lieutenant Dox, I’m Doctor Asa Dael, please call me Asa.” They quickly pulled up pertinent medical records on their PaDD . “Well, it looks like you just had one these. Just a quick scan or two and I’ll have you out the door.”

Asa quickly scanned their fellow new crew memeber and completed a few reflex tests. The officer’s baseline had not changed from her last physical and the doctor saw no reason for any concern. “Everything looks to be in order here. Any questions for me?”

"No, ma'am. I'm just eager to get a clean bill of health so I can officially report for duty." The slighlty excited pilot responded. "Thank you "

"My pleasure, and please, call me Asa, or Doctor, or if you need an honorific Myx or sir please. I take no offense mind, I know most people haven't met a genderless person before. Happy to serve with you, I'll file this right away."

Melanie pursed her lips ever so slightly, feeling a twinge of embarrassment and making yet another mistake immediately upon meeting her fellow crew members, but quickly smiled deciding that simply moving forward was the best course. "Thank you, Doctor. I appreciate it ."

With a nod, Melanie exited sickbay, leaving the doctor to get back to work, happy that the overall experience went well. Heading towards the nearest turbolift, she checked the PaDD with her orders she had been given by the First Officer and confirmed her third and final check in before she could begin in ernest with her first ever assignment on a Starship.

All she had to do was meet with the ships councilor. And it was completely possible that she was dreading this interaction more than any other so far.
