Daniel nodded as she asked her question. “I suppose it is, I’ve never really thought about it before.” He said. Daniel had never really considered it to be an honor to go to the Academy considering how many applicants were accepted. The issues that had consistently plagued him during his time at the Academy weren’t academic; they were more practical, such as his morality and his ability to follow Starfleet Rules and Regulations which had taken quite some time for him to become accustomed to. Trying to break a lot of the conditioning he had undergone as a child was the hardest part but he had done it for the most part.
“I bet that was quite an interesting experience.” Daniel said. “Were there a lot of midshipman in your class?” He asked her. As she asked what he meant about his genetics he paused for a moment, he knew that as a medical officer she could go to the CMO and have his record unsealed, so he figured the best way for her to find out would be for him to reveal it himself. “I’ve been genetically enhanced not to the extent of the Augments from the Eugenics Wars however.” Daniel said as he paused to think of how to explain it to her. He had at first considered mentioning the Great Khan and how his people revered him, Daniel did too but not to the extent that his people did, not after he’d read reports from a different point of view. “From the moment I was born my parents selected genetic enhancements for me, they chose specific enhancements that would have me excel as a pilot.” He stated as he paused again and took a drink from his glass. “The enhancement process is less refined than the Augment process, there are several side effects, for me one of those is a larger appetite and another requires me to maintain a strict physical training regimen but the more intensive the enhancements the more demanding the side effects.” Daniel said, in a way he was lucky that his parents had wanted him to be a pilot and not a special forces operator or an ground forces trooper, he knew that the side effects for maintaining those enhancements were far more intense that his.
Daniel stopped talking to eat some more of his salad and with his other hand he speared the lasagna with his fork held it up for her to grab. “It’s got a creamy taste thanks to the two cheeses, the sauce is slightly spicy and when you add in the sausage it all combines into a delicious blend of tastes.” He said with a smile.
As she finished her pie he started on his lasagna. “So what do you like to do for fun?” He asked her as he took a bite of his lasagna.
