Tell very quickly cast an eye over the instruments, it was safe to leave for the engine room for now. She picked up her multiuse portable repair kit that she had put together for moments such as this and headed for the cargo hold.
Damn it, damn it, damn it she cursed as she walked along why do we have to get into such scrapes.
She was in the cargo hold in seconds, it was in a mess but nothing that couldn't wait. She saw Hichop checking over the Bjoran.

'What's up Doc?' she asked

Hichop was confused. The open wounds showed signs of major system rejection of something. Everything was inflamed just a little. He was concerned that if he did anything he would only cause more damage to the Bjoran who clearly had an underlying medical condition.. Hichop quickly sealed the major bleeds but didn't think they would hold for long given what he was looking at and called to all around him, "I need him in medical now" But the more he thought about it the more something didn't add up. That level of system wide rejection of something was not right. if this condition developed at any point of his life he would have died from organ and tissue rejection as well as mass bleeding before anyone diagnosed a condition. Which got him first was anyones guess. But the diplomate was still alive so he must have known about his condition and must have medication. Hichop was going to have to wake him.

As they reached the sick bay Hichop grabbed a stimulant and tranquillisers. There was probably a lot of better ways to do this given the new starfleet equipment but he knew what he was doing with more basic medications. He administered the stimulant slowly till he could see the signs of arousal. 30 seconds later the ambassador was aware enough to talk. Hichop asked "You are injured, where is your medication for your condition?" There was a moments silence then he spoke, but his acent had changed "They are in the hold, under a false bottom in the top crate, on the left as you entre the room." Hichop was taken back with both the clarity and accuracy of the information provided given how little he should have been aware of his surroundings.

Pointing to a body to his left not even looking up Hichop said "Go and get them" and they were off as he administered the tranquilliser hoping the sealed wounds would still not rupture. When the medicine returned everything fell in place. The medication was not Bjoran but Cardasian. The medication was not to stop rejection but to maintain a massive system alteration from one species to another. In this case Cardassian to Bjoran.

"Hichop to Ro we have a situation".

,'. Ro' here. We have a situation here as well, Sogh. Explain yourself and make it quick! ,'.

Tell seeing that Hichop had things under control once she had returned with the medication attempted now to make repairs in and around the hold. It had taken quite a beating but nothing that the FHew hadn't coped with before. Relays were going out all over the palce again, she would start with those first, she called to Hichop even though he would probably ignore her.

'Hichop' she called 'I'm working on the lights if you need me, call.'

Things had moved a little quick. He realised that he had cut Tell out. Not that this would be a problem for another Klingon. But being flat headed himself he had many times been flogged off as a human and so thought it may not be good for working relationship if Tell wasn't included. Hichop Yelled out "Stand by Ro!"
