Mission: Sabotage
Location: sickbay
Timeline: MD6, 1402 hours

A mere two minutes after her shift ended, Farenna strode purposefully into the ship's medical facility. She tugged down her tunic, preferring formal dresses over the discomfort of what she considered her uniform to be. She tugged at her collar, wondering if perhaps she should consider a larger size of jacket or somehow have the uniform refitted to well, fit better.

She silently placed the PADD she carried onto the CMO's desk, piercing yellow eyes watching the Bolian as he worked. When she wasn't immediately noticed, she quietly cleared her throat to draw the doctor's attention. She wouldn't normally interrupt someone who was working by simply starting to speak. From history she had learned that it was better to have a senior officer speak first.

Ranav heard the woman and turned from the COM station he had been scouring for the last two hours looking over as much information regarding his coming staff as he could. His cup of coffee had grown cold waiting for him to down the dark brew. A broad smile crossed his face "Lieutenant Farenna, sorry, I got so engrossed in my work I didn't hear you come in."

The Reman woman smiled politely. "I didn't want to disturb you, you looked very concentrated." She pushed her PADD forward. "My medical records," she offered, "I'm here for my boarding physical, though I apologize for not coming in on day one. I don't like medical facilities, been poked and prodded too often as a child."

"That's quite alright," Ranav responded taking the and beginning the transfer processes to the computer, "I didn't have everything working yet anyway." He smiled at her and then nodded, "we can do that physical now if you wish?" "shall we go to one of the biobeds so we can take care of it?"

Farenna nodded. "You might want to calibrate for hybrids," she suggested with a thin smile, "otherwise your instruments will go haywire. I'm half Human."

"Well," Ranav said with a smile, "another human hybrid, "he glanced at her as he stood to begin his exit, "I'm half human as well."

"Oh?" She gave him a once over then smiled, noticing the tuff of hair. "Oh yes, now I see," she chuckled, "Bolians generally don't have any hair. You drew the lucky straw then, I didn't get so lucky." She ran her hand over her bald head. "Sometimes, I wish I did have hair."

Ranav chuckled as he heard her response, "well when you have hair it needs to be cut or trimmed and that can be annoying. He offered her a broad smile, "seems all my beds are working fine now and that leak in the lab has been fixed."

"What leak?" Farenna asked, while easing herself down onto the bed. "So which of your parents is Human?"

"Donor father was human," he offered with a slight grin, "you could literally say I was conceived without either of my parents being the wiser." He drew in a breath and added, "I mentioned it in the staff meeting. I had a fluid leak that ran down the walls in my lab."

"Ah..." Farenna smiled. "My mother was Human though I never knew her. She died giving birth to me. I didn't meet my father until about a year ago or so. Turns out he never knew I existed, mother never told him she was pregnant. I was adopted by a Human couple and raised on Earth."

"Well," the physician replied with his brows raised, "my adoptive parents were human too but we lived on the U.S.S. Russell."

Farenna smiled. " I good to go?"

"Yes," Ranav said letting a smile cross his face, "but stop by anytime you'de like, it's sort of empty down here right now until the rest of my staff show up."
