Mission: S1E1 - Booby Trap
Location: Counselor's Quarters

"Arcturian fizz; iced glass goblet." The goblet materialized within the replicator in Jaya's quarters. She took the frosted beverage with both hands and sipped gingerly. The foam tickled at her nose.

"Computer, access personal records for Nurse Otoha Takahashi." Jaya made her way to her lounge sofa and tucked her feet beneath her as she reclined against it. She preferred the creature comforts of her private quarters over the small office afforded to her near Sickbay.

"Authorization required."

"Authorization: Maera-Bravo-Alpha-Beta-Echo." Jaya sipped from her goblet again and reached for her PADD.

"Authorization accepted. Retrieving personal records." The computer warbled after just a moment. "Records retrieved."

Jaya wiped foam from her lips and licked it from her finger. "Search parameters: psychological evaluation."

"Primary personality attributes: Highly disciplined, strong-willed, assertive, honor bound, detail oriented, socially defencive. Pathological Abnormality: Heightened paraconscious activity."

That was certainly noteworthy. Jaya recorded it in her PADD. "Computer, retrieves notes regarding patient's pathological abnormality."

"Anomaly was diagnosed during early childhood. Telepathy Excalibur test returned negative results. Patient classification: Non-telepathic. Brain anomaly resembles Trill host activity, but the patient carries no symbiont. Persistence of imaginary persona continued beyond normal childhood development. Hallucinogenic behavior ceased during prepubescence. Current organic brain activity is currently classified as benign. Case addendum: Patient consulted with Vulcan mind healer Savesk prior to Starfleet service. Savesk submitted endorsement of fitness for service."

"Sounds like a psionic symbiont of some kind," she muttered aloud. Jaya documented that as well. "Computer, recall case notes from Savesk."

"Mind Healer Savesk provided no examination details in his endorsement."

Jaya smirked. "Of course not," she whispered to herself. "Computer, close record. Begin recording for transmission." She held her PADD in front of her face.

"Savesk, I am Ensign Jaya Maera of the USS Vindex. We are currently operating in the Gamma Quadrant, but I cannot say more at this time. The nature of this transmission is to request information regarding the consultation you provided for Otoha Takahashi some time ago. Any information you can provide would be held in the strictest confidence and will be used only in the betterment of her personal well-being. Thank you very much. Computer, end recording. Send transmission to Vulcan, care of Mind-healer Savesk. Priority One."
