[Sickbay]: Round Five Scans and Vaccines

Sickbay is fairly ordinary for a ship's hospital. There are no terrifying devices or humming machines you might see in a sci-fi thriller. The biobeds along the walls are equipped with biofunction monitors, but look fairly standard. Instead of silver trays filled with metal tools and sawblades, there are an array of small devices that look as harmless as cell phones. As for the staff, they're all well-groomed and friendly. As a matter of fact, all personnel look harmless. Well, perhaps excluding the sun avatar, but Trance Gemini is as skilled as the Starfleet officers.

If you're new to the ship, no doubt you've been escorted here by the security team. Nothing to worry about, the doctors just want to make sure you aren't carrying any viruses or are vulnerable to terrible space disease. Once you've been checked over — a quick scan from a tricorder and any necessary vaccines — you'll be free to go! Lollipops are optional.

"All right, come in," one of them calls out as you enter. "Don't be shy. It's just a scan and a hypospray, nothing to worry about."

[ooc: Sickbay is as always OTA! For new characters, tagging isn't mandatory but going to sickbay ICly is. So if you'd prefer to skip threading with one of our doctors, you can handwave that your character got a clean bill of health and a shot and were sent on their merry way. For those who are tagging, we have Trance Gemini, Beverly Crusher, and Rory Williams, with Julian Bashir by request only (and possible appearances by Simon Tam). If you have a preference, please specify in the subject line of your tag who you would like. If you would like more details about sickbay, here's the wiki page. If you haven't made your intro yet, you can assume the doctors will want to see your character shortly after they arrive, and backtagging is love!]

Rory Williams hadn't been on duty during the last wave of new arrivals.

Following the trip to Alemar III, Rory felt the sort of exhaustion that he'd take a couple weeks off for, because exhaustion + nurse duties usually led to some poorly made decisions and a lack of care, and Rory takes his job very seriously.

... even if his job is now unpaid and in space, using very different tools.

There's also the fact that it's been a while since he'd really had a chance to spend some private time with Amy; not since her abduction to the Enterprise, then his search for her, and then his abduction and Alemar III after that. (Let's just say catching up was in order and leave it at that, okay.)

So he's missed a few newer faces, and - so it would seem - new personnel too.

He's looking through one of the PADDs, scrolling through existing patient and staff files a little absent-mindedly while he waits for new ones to arrive.

There has certainly been plenty to do in the Enterprise's infirmary, or sickbay, as they call it, since Simon arrived. Apart from his very first patient, Doctor McCoy, there was also the influx of patients after the ship's visit to the planet.

That is nothing new to Simon; visiting a new world and trouble often accompany each other where Serenity is concerned. Certain members of the crew have rather a ... difficult time keeping themselves removed from trouble, which tends to mean more work for their medic.

He's glad to be at work here. As much as he's been enjoying the opportunity to spend time with Kaylee, she can't replace the hole in his life left by being brought here without River. By having nobody to care for, no sister to protect.

(He has to believe the others will look after her, or he'd go mad. He can't bear the thought of having lost her again after he's been through so much to protect her.)

Work is, as always, a distraction, so he's on deck ahead of the medical exams, even if he's not scheduled for the day. When he steps through the door, there's a young man he doesn't know looking at one of the PADDs.

Simon nods.

"Good morning."

Rory turns to look over his shoulder, setting his PADD down for a moment.

"'Morning," he returns, offering the other man a polite smile. "I suppose you're one of the new staff then?"

He quickly wipes his hand on one of the legs of his trousers, more out of habit than anything, and offers it to shake.

The man's accent is unfamiliar, and he's dressed in civilian clothing, not the clothing of Starfleet, which Simon supposes makes him another of the people brought here from their own time and place by this mysterious entity called Q.

"I ... suppose I am," Simon agrees, his voice a touch rueful in a way he suspects his new companion -- colleague, rather -- will understand. After all, none of those who've been brought here had any choice in the matter, at least, not to Simon's knowledge. Perhaps not all of them have reasons to want to be home as compelling as Simon's need to care for his sister, but they must all have a place to be and people they miss.

Simon, slightly formal as always when meeting new people, steps forward to shake the man's hand.

"Simon Tam. I'm, uh, I'm a surgeon."
