Randall entered sickbay and started looking around.

"Can I help you?" Nurse Kimba Rossi asked the newcomer.

Sophia was doing a tour of sickbay to see if there were any patients that could use a bit of comfort, her tail wagging happily. She liked visiting when Zhara was writing up a report. Ever since Mr. Tumnus visited her she took a little time every day to walk through the medical department and say hello.

She looked at the newcomer and cocked her head to one side. He didn't smell familiar, but he didn't look like he needed her assistance, so she sat down and watched.

Josh looked at Rossi. "I'm Doctor Josh Randall, the new surgeon." He paused. "I don't remember seeing your name on the roster for the medical department."

"Welcome aboard, Doctor." Kimba said. "I'm Kimba Rossi and I'm quite forgettable."

"Don't sell yourself short, Kimba." Hermia said with a smile. Turning to Randall, she said. "Good day, Doctor, I'm Doctor Hermia O'Rourke, Assistant Chief Medical Officer. How are you settling in?" She said.

Randall looked at Kimba. "Indeed...never sell yourself short." He smiled and winked at her, then turned to Mermia. "Doctor O'Rourke, pleasure to meet you. And like anytime one moves on to a new posting, it's always a royal pain. Let me aski right off....where's my office?"

Zhara walked into the room, looking for Sophia. "Hello," she said to the others, hop[ing she wasn't interrupting anything.

Dr. Ballston left his office with a PaDD in hand. He saw the group and offered a broad smile, "I see our new doctor has arrived." He walked a little closer and looked at Randall, "welcome aboard Doctor Randall, I'm Doctor Ballston."

Randall looked at him. "Thank you, doctor, good to be here, I guess." Randall noticed that a woman had entered sickbay. "As I was telling Dr O'Rourke, that I asked where my office was, Dr Ballston."

"Welcome aboard, doctor," Zhara added. She didn't want to delay the man too much. She snapped her fingers and Sophia walked over to her. She passed by the new doctor and nudged his hand in greeting. "Sophia says hello, too."

"Yes," Randall shook the dogs hand then pulled a tissue out of his pocket and wiped his hand off. "Yes, very interesting to be here. Hopefully my services won't be needed."

"I hate to disappoint you Doctor Randall but this is an Intrepid-class ship and less you're the new CMO I'm afraid we don't have an official office for you." He smiled "but I do have a place you can use as your office."

Randall looked at the CMO. "And where would that be, sir?"

Richard smiled and nodded, "right this way Doctor."

He motioned for him to follow and began moving towards the main sickbay doors, "the rest of you might as well tag along, I've got a little surprise."

As the doors hissed open the Azzian kept talking, "during the last mission we were damaged pretty well so I asked them to convert some storage space into usable office space. They're not fancy, but they are an improvement over nothing."

Ballston turned down the hall slightly and turned to the left where another door hissed open leading to a fairly short hallway, there are three offices here, actually." Stepping to the side and letting the door to his right spring open, "this one is yours doctor Randall."

Looking at the others he nodded and then looked at his assistant, "Hermia, yours is through the door at the end of the hall."

"Looks snug." Hermia said.

Randall looked at his "office" was really no bigger then a closet. "I'll need a desk, chair and a computer terminal. But otherwise, it seems acceptable."

Richard raised an eyebrow and smiled, "I didn't say it was spacious, just that there was one." He chuckled and nodded, "I'll get operations and engineering to provide the things you need Doctor, I do hope you decide to stay, seems your not convinced your move here was a wise one."

"Thank you, doctor." He looked around sickbay and what will be his 'office'. "I go where I'm sent and needed, doctor, so it appears I will probably be here until command has other plans for me."

"I think we are all in the same situation," Richard replied offering a smile, "let me know if you will need anything else Doctor Randall."

"That goes for me too." Hermia said. "Any questions just ask."

Zhara had followed along, keeping to the back of the group. "Doctor Ballston, the office space is a great idea. Doctor Randall, again, welcome." She smiled at all of them. "If you don't mind, Sophia and I will head back to counseling. See you later. " She signaled to Sophia and headed down the corridor.

Richard nodded at the woman and smiled, "you're always welcome Counselor and Sophia."

"Thank you." Zhara flashed him a grin over her shoulder. She was glad, as she liked the staff in medical and enjoyed helping out when she could.

Randall watched them go, then walked into his "office" and looked around. "Yeaa...welcome aboard Josh...what have you gotten yourself into now?"
