Mission: S1E2 - Unity
Location: Sickbay: Main Suite
Timeline: MD 09 - 0930


Cara was stuffing an empty field kit with supplies from the storage room as she spoke to Dr. Dunn and Mac standing in the doorway. " and Mac will be in charge while I'm gone. Since Catullans are immune to radiation I'm taking Tookl with me just in case," she said, using the tip of her penlight to topple a stack of curlex wrap from a top shelf.

"Good choice," Mac said. "He's the best field guy we have."

"Put Mark on the Medical Transporter," Cara said as she stuffed the curlex into the kit. "Anna...someone from QM is supposed to bringing us some more meds. Go ahead and sign for them and get them logged in." She glanced over her shoulder. "A few won't be on the allotment list. The Captain's Yeoman pulled some strings to get replications made of some of the more specific meds I requested."

Anna nodded. "Any idea when?" She asked.

Looking around at the shelves to see if there was anything else she might need, Cara said, "I was expecting them this afternoon but you know those guys down in QM." She zipped up the over flowing kit. "If the Vindex goes to alert status, make sure all unessential suites get closed down. Only those with patients in them need stay running. That frees up more personnel if you need them." She took a deep breath and hope she had covered everything.

"Don't worry Lieutenant, me and Mac have got this, ain't that right Mac?" Anna asked, looking over at the nurse.

Mac winced, knowing how much Cara hated being referred to by her rank but she smiled and nodded at Dunn. "Go, boss. Do your thing and get back safe," she said, stepping aside so Cara could exit the storage room.

Cara grimaced at Anna but decided to let it slide this time. She slung the strap of the bag over her shoulder and grabbed a Field Trauma Kit off of one of the hooks and slung its strap over her other shoulder. "OK, then. Here we go," she said, taking a big breath and marching out of the room. She met up with Tookl and they headed out of Sickbay.

Watching her boss leave, Mac let out an audible sigh and leaned against the wall, folding her arms across her chest. "Ahhh....they grow up so fast," she said, teasingly.

Anna glanced across at Mac, shook her head, and headed back to what she was doing before, a diagnostic of the biobeds. Anna was up for a challenge, and hoped she was capable of the task ahead.

Mac remained against the wall and, also shook her head. She had worked with Dunn since the start. "She's got the chops," she muttered. "Her sense of humor needs tweaking, though." She pushed away from the wall and headed for the nurses' station.
