Personal Log: Stardate 40931.5 – LTJG Kyr th’Vovass, U.S.S. Boston

Kyr wearily enters his quarters, pausing a moment to hit the panel next to the door to turn on the lights. After the lights turn on, he blinks for a moment and then heads to the corner loveseat, opening a hidden compartment and taking out a ‘Vovass style Andorian Ale which he opens while he lounges on the loveseat. He takes a deep pull and then closes his eyes….

“Computer, begin Personal log and oh, play something nice…”

~the tones of a Spanish guitar begin playing~

“Had my first real case of shipboard combat today…felt somewhat useless at my post, but its necessary work, to coordinate the Damage Control, medical and security teams, to monitor for hull breaches and boarders, to make sure that the shields are not breached and to sound yellow and red alert. I am not going to go too deep into what happened, only to say that it’s not like the sims make it out to be, the mists of war are real, just like my parents used to say, you never have total awareness of what is going on and the general confusion in the air…”
Kyr pauses and takes another deep swig of his ale.

“It took all of my control and focus not to abandon my station and go to T’Char when her panel exploded, injuring her quite badly. Luckily Lt. Fox was right at her side, and able to give her immediate medical attention to get her stabilized. I badly wanted to go and help her but I knew my duty…I know that she would understand that. After things calmed down and the Orion ships withdrew, Tyler and I were finally able to convince her to make her way to sickbay, over her strenuous objections of course…I almost thought that I would have to sedate her to get her to sickbay but it wasn’t necessary in the end. T’Char is in good hands with Doc H’Rilla, he says that with time she will make a full recovery…he eventually had to sedate her and T’Char began muttering in Vulcan, something about Alice and Cassidy… I believe those were the two crewmates that died in that accident that T’Char was also in back on the Kent…”

“I know that it’s a very sensitive subject with her, I am somewhat not looking forward to the upcoming discussion I will need to have with her about it and how she and I need counselling, but it’s too important to put it off for long…I will also have to make clear my feelings about her, it was too close today…to leave things such things unsaid which also reminds me to send a message to my parents both on Andoria and at their duty stations, hah, that’s is also a uncomfortable discussion ahead of me, another Vulcan they will say…well, she is not like Velires at all which is great as far as I am concerned and I will have to convince them of that…”
Kyr takes another pause and stares at the bloodstained sleeve of his uniform, the yellowish green turning dark.

“It was far too close for comfort today, I have so much left undone and unsaid but I realize that I can’t focus on that…”

Kyr then picks up a PADD and reads aloud

“There is surely nothing other than the single purpose of the present moment. A man's whole life is a succession of moment after moment. If one fully understands the present moment, there will be nothing else to do, and nothing else to pursue. Live being true to the single purpose of the moment…”

“Computer, End Personal Log.”
