He had told her to leave. She had gone to see him, and he had told her to leave. That he didn't want her to see him like that. In truth, she hadn't known quite what to expect but seeing like that was beyond anything she had imagined. It looked like he could be gone at any moment and he had told her to leave!

Samala resisted the urge to hurl the bottle across the hanger and instead took another long pull of the Reman whiskey. It burned her throat as she swallowed but she didn't care as she searched for a way for everything to hurt less. And it wasn't even a physical pain now that her arm had been healed.

She had tried the gym on the ship, hoping that exhaustion would help her to forget but that hadn't worked at all. So, she had come here and decided to try a chemical remedy instead. So far, that wasn't working either, but the bottle was still half full. There was still a chance.

A shuffling sound reached her ears and Samala looked up from her position on the rear ramp of the Apache to see the last creature she ever expected to see aboard a Federation starship entering the hanger.

A Gorn.

Main engineering was a mess, search and rescue was still being performed throughout the ship, there was a ton od damage to all of the fighters. It felt like the duty roster was simply never going to end. Sithick had been on claw since early morning, though he did have one very rewarding break before the battle where he had managed to take an actual bath with Vivian. A memory that helped to cushion the fact that he had gotten the news that Lahkesis had not lived through the encounter of the versant.

He didn't know the direct details, of what happened, he hadn't really wanted to know. She was gone that alone was painful enough for him to deal with. He had buried his muzzle in work, and decided that he would just focus on the duty roster and try to work through the pain of loss. He had taken a small break to change his burned out uniform for a new fresh one, and a quick meal.

Walking onto the shuttle bay things were starting to calm down. Most people had been dragged out to sickbay at this point, and while the warp core was still having to be constantly monitored and couldn't be taken off line, they at least had word that they would get help to finalize repairs and rebuild the ship to dry dock conditions. Crew was even getting shore-leave.

It was something to look forward, but for now he had yet one more thing on the list to take over. The Apache, a Reman shuttle, of some sort. He didn't have the full MDS yet so he would need to work out exactly what problems the ship was having manually. Apparently it had been damaged when they had integrated the cloak from the ship into the Theurgy at large.

Walking up to it, he placed a claw along the hull, touching the ship almost like he was expecting the thing to talk to him. He tapped the hull with a claw and listened to it for a second. "I'sh okay, I ha'th worked with a number of Th'ips from acrossk the quadrant." He said loudly, at first it looked like he was talking to the ship, but as he actually moved to enter the shuttle. He addressed the woman inside. "I grew up on floatila, Federation, Klingon, Romulan, Reman, all part'th built alike. we may need a few part'th but we can at lea'th-t get the ass-ass-mint done."

He groaned for a second, tapping his collar where the translator should have sat, tied into his speach functions. "Transsklator broke." His deep voice having a noticeable lisp due to a lack of lips and a longer tongue not designed to speak Federation common. "It take'th time to get a new one."

Samala had watched as the Gorn had walked directly up to the Apache, placed a clawed hand on it and waited. Samala understood what her was doing; she had done it many times herself as the Apache had spoked to her in a language only those who used or worked on the craft understood. He'd then tapped the hull and listened before telling the Reman spacecraft that it was ok and that he had worked on several ships across the quadrant.

"And you think that gives you the right to feel up my ship?" Samala thought angrily, the whiskey affecting her emotional state. "You make be a Gorn but you wear a Starfleet uniform. You think that gives you the right to touch whatever you like; use whatever tech you like. Whether it is yours or not. Not this time."

"Not all the same," Samala replied when Gorn had come around and addressed her, telling her that all parts are built alike. While in a sense that was quite true, Samala was insulted by the Gorn's lumping of the Apache into the same group as a Romulan ship. Despite being half Romulan herself, and being very proud and loving her mother, Samala considered herself Reman to the core.

"Why are you here?" Samala demanded to know, coming to her feet, bottle in hand. While she could understand some of what the Gorn had said, given her own brother's difficulty with Standard, other parts of it were incoherent without the translator that the Gorn said was broken.

Sithick lifted up the PADD that represented the current work list, and pointed to where he was in it. The work roster was designated through all of Engineering. To Starfleet ships the roster was an immutable fact. Engineering was the backbone that kept every ship held together with more than duct tape and voodoo fetishes. The master of assignments, and her ship had for lack of a better word been handed to him to assess.

"Your Th'ip is broken, I wazt Th'ent to ath'e'th it." He groaned for a moment why did so many common words have to have that singular letter he couldn't seem to pronounce. Even his own name had taken him so long to learn to say properly, but he had wanted that name in particular, he was very proud over that choice, and it was technically a word from his own language, the S was much more soft in his speaking of it. "I am Petty Officer Sithick." He said nodding his head.

He sniffed the air, and caught the harsh smell of alcohol on her breath, and sighed at least that made him understand why she was so combative. "Who you?"

It seemed that the Gorn, she still couldn't believe that there was a Gorn aboard the ship not even mentioning that he was a part of the crew, was an engineer and had been sent to inspect her ship and see what damage it had sustained.

"Why do they even care?" Samala thought to herself through the haze of the Reman Whiskey she was holding. "They got the one bit from the Apache that they wanted. What's the point of keeping the rest?"

"Well Petty Officer Sithick, I am Samala and this is my ship. Mine and my brother's. It's called the Apache," Samala announced, trying her best not to slur her words. "I bet your little list didn't say that did it," she challenged as she stood up slowly. "And my ship is damaged, Mr Starfleet, not broken. It'll fly if I need it too. I just need a few days to fix up the hole in her side is all."

"Not even sure if it was you that made the hole, but I wouldn't put it past you," Samala considered, eyeing the Gorn. "I just can't think of how you would have seen us to do it."

"So, unless you're here to help me," Samala began, her eyes fixed and hard. "You can move on to the next part of your list. I'll have the Apache fixed before my brother is better. You'll see."

[Show/Hide]"Sithick!" came a call across the shuttle bay, and Chief Petty Officer Liam Herrold limped around the aft side of the Sabine - another unorthodox shuttle in the area. There were crew working on fixing the sleek ship, and Liam had thought the Gorn had been working with that repair team. For as much time as the Petty Officer had spent in the Fighter Bay, Liam knew that the reptilian officer was not dedicated to the Fighter Bay. Something that he'd like to change.

While Liam approached the tall Gorn and the Reman shuttle, his eyes fell on a woman he'd not seen before. Young... and almost looking human, even though he doubted that was true. Everything besides her appearence was off, not suggesting any heritage from Earth, Alpha Centauri, Mars or some other human colony. Her mannerism was just... off, in that sense. He raked a hand through his hair and greeted the young woman with a quick smile, putting his calloused hands on the hips of his gold-coloured jumsuit. His light blue eyes sought out Sithick, hoping he hadn't interrupted their conversation.

"Hi," he said, rather informally. "I would like talk to you about something. Do you have time now?"

He glanced towards the young woman again, clearing his throat. "I'm sorry, if you were waiting for him to repair your ship," he said, just assuming it was hers since she had strange clothing and had likely arrived with the Reman crat, "I can make sure someone else comes here and help you out. If you wait just a moment, I can find someone."

He fished up his PADD, meaning to replace Sithick, when the woman spoke up.

Before the Gorn got a chance to reply to Samala's alcohol-fuelled tirade, a voice from the bay was calling his name. Turning in search of the voice, Samala saw a Human in a horribly coloured yellow jumpsuit limping around the rear of one of the other ships in the bay with a PADD of his own in hand.

"Great, just what I need. More 'help'," Samala thought as the Human looked her over. Resisting the urge to punch him in the face for his open examination of her, the hybrid simply stood there as he first spoke to Sithick before turning to address her. 

"Actually," Samala began without thinking about what she should say. "I was just telling Mr Gorn here that this was my ship, its name is the Apache and that besides the hole in its side, she is perfectly space worthy," she said, her anger now being directed at the Human in full. "And that unless he was here to help me, then he should just move on to the next thing on his list because no one will be in charge of repairing this ship but me. The only things I need are a few tools that I don't already have and some supplies to fix the damage."

"Oh, and I'll be wanting the cloaking device back," Samala declared, her voice decidedly firm despite the amount of whiskey she had consumed. "Or access to the equipment to build a replacement. You choose."

Sithick opened his mouth like he was about to reply, a claw raised up as he was going to point out that the craft was on his duty roster, and that since they were on a Starfleet ship there were some standard practices about going over repairs and such, but was cut off when a new voice one of Liam Herrold spoke out asking for his help. Sithick decided that for the moment he would turn tail and talk to his superior considering the lady was drunk, and possibly violent and he didn't really want to deal with that at the moment.

"Zir." Sithick spoke walking up to Liam, nodding his head when Liam said that he wanted to speak with him. Sithick walked up to his superior officer. "Samala iz, currently in a bad mood." He said regarding the woman who then went and spoke alongside them. Asking about a cloaking device that she needed back.

Sithick eyed the size of the shuttle, a cloaking device this size, he had worked on klingon ships with cloaking devices in the past. "Zir, if we are in acquisition of a cloak, we should consider attaching it to the Allegiant instead of giving it back." A cloaking device that size seemed a waist to give it back to the angry woman.

He put the thought aside and looked back at Liam. "You wish to speak to me?"
