“I understand that it’s not standard for an Intrepid class Sickbay, but my Chief Medical Officer insists that we need these supplies.” Khrysara has been assigned the additional duties of ensuring Sickbay was fully set up and stocked before departure. After several eerily similar calls with countless supply personnel, Khrys was starting to believe her CMO was avoiding the backlash of his requests.

“According to your mission profile, you won’t be out very long.” The Bolian looked at Khrysara curiously.

“And yet Doctor Derno insists that everything on our list is necessary.” She feigned a sympathetic smile. “Including the osmotic eel.”

The Bolian scratched her bald head. “An additional Intrepid compatible biobed will take a few days.”

Khrysara shook her head. “I need it today. The requests have been in for weeks.” She sighed and reached for her tea. “ I need them by the end of the day, while I still have Engineers in my section to get everything installed.”

“I will do my best Lieutenant, but I can’t make any promises.” The Bolian woman smiled. “In the meantime I’ll work on the rest of your requests... including the eel.” There was some curiosity in her voice.

The Betazoid shrugged. “Doctor Derno is a Denobulan and believes in a mix of traditional and holistic medicine.” She chuckled slightly. “I’m not sure I share his views.”

The Bolian smiled warmly as she worked away on a console.

Khrysara watched the woman on her screen while simultaneously going over transfers and work order on behalf of her Chief.

“I have a transport scheduled with most of your supplies for 1400 Hours,” the Supply Tech smiled to herself. “I found a biobed, but I can’t get it to you until 1900 Hours.” She looked up to lock eyes with Khrys.

The Doctor let out a breath of relief. “I can’t tell you how much help that is, thank you.” She grinned.

“If you need anything more, this line is open.” The Bolian said with a big smile.

“Thank you , Thank you.” Khrysara wanted to jump for joy. “Ral out.”
