Mignon was slowly adapting to the Pioneer. She wanted to get her mandatory evaluations out of the way so that she could spend more of her time focusing on learning more about the science department and he crew as a whole.

She set a last-minute appointment and went to see the counselor.

Tallida was both busier than she had thought she would be and yet still bored. She found the crew fascinating.

Mignon knocked on the door to the counselor's office.

Tallida was pulled from her thoughts when the knock sounded. She hadn't looked at her schedule for the day and wasn't unaware that anyone was supposed to be arriving soon. "Come in," She called as she moved into the main area.

"Hi. I'm Mignon Mejia."

"Please come in," Tallida replied. "What can I do for you?"

"I'm new to the Pioneer and need to get my psychological evaluation," the scientist said. "So, here I am."

"Ah," The Angosian smiled. "Come on in."

"Thanks." Mignon walked in and looked around, waiting for the doctor to tell her where to go next.

"We are going to be in there." Tallida motioned towards one of the small rooms off the main room. She used them to help the crew feel less exposed as they spoke. "Can I get you anything?"

"I'll take a lemonade, please," Mignon said, following the doctor into the smaller room. She took a seat and settled back.

Tallida retrieved the women's lemonade and got herself a cup of tea as was becoming her usual. She handed off the cold tart beverage before taking her own seat. "So," The angosian started. "Tell me a little about yourself?"

"Thanks," she said, taking the lemonade. "I'm an anthropologist and archaeologist from Earth. Not much more to say than that." Mignon grinned. "I'm pretty boring."

"Close to your family?" Tallida asked easily.

"Yes, when we can manage to get together," she said. "But it's hard when we're all busy. What about you?"

Tallida nodded as she told her story. "Did you enjoy the Academy?" She smiled. She would explain to the young women that she was going through her checklist for an evaluation if she questioned her need to ask questions.

"Yes, but I think I enjoyed university more. I did that before deciding to join Starfleet."

"Oh, did you complete your studies before you joined the Academy?"

Mignon nodded. "I have three doctorates, but I wanted to explore and get out where I could find old worlds and ancient civilizations, so I joined Starfleet."

"That seems logical." Tallida replied with a smile. "What does your family think about that?"

"They're fine with it, as long as I'm happy. I may not get home much, but I talk to my parents regularly, so it works."

Tallida nodded before punching a few commands to bring up her file. "So, anything you want to discuss?" She asked. "All your answer seem to check out for the evaluation." she smiled.

"Not really." Mignon shrugged. "I'm still getting settled in."

"Very good," Tallida started. "Well, I have cleared you for duty. My door is always open if you feel the need to talk." She smiled as she rose from her chair.

"Thanks," Mignon said, standing. "It was nice to meet you."

"And I you, Ensign." She gave her a tip of her head as she walked her to the door. "See you around."
