It was a disappointing first look at the sickbay that was for sure. Though she had met up with the commanding officer and he seemed nice enough. Something weighed heavily on his mind she could tell and also she knew he was probably looking into her file heavier now because of their conversation when they met. He had the right to know, she thought everyone did, as long as they understood she was fine now.

Zoey entered her quarters and looked around her personal belongings still packed were stacked in a neat pile courtesy of the non-rates who helped bring her aboard. This was the first time she had stepped inside of what would be her new home for the foreseeable future. Assuming that this ship wasn’t together just for this mission an average tour of duty being three to four years but with all the secrecy surrounding this mission and ship would they just be sent on after?

Maybe they would be stuck on this ship together forever? Wouldn’t it be easier to keep the crew in one place to keep the secrets from spreading? She had no idea how Starfleet operated when it came to those things and honestly was surprised that they had even this level of secrecy. Sure she figured the government would have things like that but always assumed they were their own independent groups and not part of Starfleet who liked to banner itself as not the military.

Zoey looked briefly around the small room before proceeding toward the door to the bedroom which was currently open. When she entered this room she looked at the brand new mattress wrapped in plastic and completely bare otherwise besides some pillows also new and wrapped. She sighed and then turned to the built in dresser and smiled.

“There you are, Darby.”

“I know, we have a lot of decorating to do... but even if it’s kind of small there is plenty of room for just the two of us.” Zoey moved to the dresser as she spoke and then pet Darby gently around the ear.

“I was worried you had gotten misplaced, I hadn’t seen you this morning,” she added. “Alright well lets have lunch before we get to unpacking.” With that she held her hand out for Darby to hop in and then she carried him back into the living area of their quarters. She placed him down on the table and then replicated herself and some lunch.

When she sat down at the table with a large glass of iced water and her lunch she picked up two pills and popped them in her mouth before she took a long sip of water.

“So what do you think of the ship so far?”
