Title: The Man, Part One
USS Eagle, NCC 2185
~So this is a Sickbay,~ he thought as a familiar vibration told him he was
on a starship.
A man awoke in the darkness.
He did not know where and when he was.
He sniffed the air. He was in an infirmary or hospital of some sort.
He listened carefully for clues and tried to feel anything distinctive about
~Which ship and headed where?~ he wondered.
"Ooof -When am I?" he said out loud, without thinking as he tried to get
~I must be a patient here,~ he guessed as the first stabs of a painful headache
reached his waking mind.
A woman's voice came out of the void. It was small but strong and tinged
with concern. "Please lie back down, sir," it said.
Then he felt himself gently pushed back down. From the small hand and arm
that did it, he didn't doubt he could remain seated if he chose to but he
thought perhaps from how he felt, the voice was right. He tried unsuccessfully
to focus and look around to figure out where and when he was and lay back
"How long has the power been out?" the man asked, starring up at blackness
where the ceiling should be.
"I'm not sure, sir. Please relax," she said.
Zhrummm-Zhrum. Klickt. Vree-ee. He heard the sounds indicating that the back
up generators had activated. The man waited for the lights to come back on
but they did not.
~There must have been some trouble with the ship,~ he thought as he wondered
what happened. ~There shouldn't have been a gap in time without the generators
kicking on and when they had done so, emergency lighting should have turned
on immediately. ~
The man decided he'd better try again to get up. If something had happened
to the ship, he could help. He wasn't quite sure how but he knew he had been
an engineer. Different schematics of all sorts of ships and propulsion systems
of different times flooded his mind. He blinked trying to sort them out and
"Just relax, sir," the four foot tall Moeban doctor said. Although she tried
not to read minds and wasn't very good at it without practice, she could
not help picking up some of his different conflicting images and emotions.
This time the man didn't want to lay down and tried harder to get up. His
head had other ideas, however, and filled what little capacity he had left
for reason with stabbing pain."Aiyee," he muttered under his breath, grabbing
his head. He took a deep breath and tried gingerly to get in a sitting position
from another angle, one hopefully more favorable to his head and thinking.
The CMO prepared the painkillers."This is for the pain. It should help,"
she said as she administered the hypospray.
~Why can't patients be good patients and just stay down?~ she thought as
she gently tried to push the CO back down.
"Thank you," the man said but this time he offered some resistance. He was
going to get up and stay up this time. He hoped that whatever the doctor
had given him would get rid of his headache and help him think straight.
Then he'd figure out where he was, what was going on and who he was supposed
to be. Either that or he'd get the lights back on so he could see where and
when he was and sort it out that way.
"Let me fix the lights. Something must be wrong in here since I heard the
generators go on and the lights should have come back on automatically and
they did not," he explained. ~Surely she will let me get up now and off this
The CMO paused. It was her turn to be confused but only for a split second
and she let him sit up. "The lights?" she repeated.
Dr. Laleilalii quickly got out her light pen and held it up to CO's eyes."Follow
the light with your eyes, please?" she asked.
The man felt the air change and something come at his face. He jumped a bit
back. "Whoah doc! Don't you think you should wait to treat me until after
the lights go back on?" the man knew he was very confused but no so
much to let some doctor tamper with him in the dark.
"Sir, can you see the light that I am shining directly in your eye?" she
asked trying not to sound worried. His left pupil was non responsive to the
The man paused trying to figure out this additional puzzle.
"..No..." he replied slowly as something new began to sink in.
The doctor tried again with the other eye.
The man felt whatever the object was in front of him move again but this
time he did not try to get out of the way.
The CMO watched the results carefully. Both pupils were non responsive to
"Captain, I think you may be blind," Dr. Laleilalii said gently.
