"I can't believe it," Kallic heard the asari say. "Wherever you're going, and whatever you're doing, it seems like I'm a part of it now! Not that I mind," she added quickly. "I was becoming a pariah on Omega, or at least in the Afterlife nightclub. I was winning too much at the quasar machines and the gambling tables--not to mention the chessboard." The asai blushed, something rather odd to see indeed. "Aria T'loak was getting suspicious, and it doesn't pay to have her breathing down your neck. I'm Quirinius V'tala, by the way. I'm glad to meet all of you."

"Mm, yes yes, glad too," Kallic murmured as his thoughts drifted back to the syringe in his hand staring at it, as if concentration would reveal the mystery ten percent.

"Not a medical expert? And all that just came from the top of your head?" Tom asked rather confused, yet ruefully enough to bring Kallic out of his reverie.

"Oh, no no no, wait...Yes, don't have a doctorate...Degree, diploma, whatever; no real qualifications to be medical expert - biological engineer - close cousin to geneticist occupation, have to know about drug effects on DNA, RNA, chromosomes, and the different protein structures: dextro-aminos, and levo-aminos - studies in drug fields required course for my occupation. Can't give you medical counseling; can give you highly intellectual advice on such subjects, or could restructure DNA to give you a tail," Kallic explained, blinking with his wide amphibious eyes he continued. "So, no, not medical expert Tom, but yes I knew all that off the top of my head, comes with being Salarian."

Tom introduced the lot of them that were in the medbay at the moment, "Tom. You've already met Kallic and Chiron. And our captain; Qui'in Tuhrop." Kallic raised his hand when Tom spoke his name to indicate who Kallic was exactly.

"Which by the way; you may want to speak with him in regards to your current situation and figure out what to do with you." Kallic just shook his head as he went back to examining the syringe.

"I believe the long term observations would be best for Quirnius," Chiron finally responded to Kallic's question.

"Mm, good, then you and me can get started on analyzing this syringe, ten percent small, but unknown, very dangerous," he replied.

"Would that be...a problem for you? I mean, I don't want to intrude or impose myself upon this ship or its crew. If I'm feeling up to it--meaning if this counterfeit batch of atropixenine doesn't continue to have bad side effects that debilitate me--I'll help out in any way I can. It's the least I can do to pay you back for saving my life. In my book, you're heroes." Kallic just rolled his large eyes and shook his head yet again.

"Well thank you," Chiron said shaking her hand. "Its no trouble at all."

"Nothing is trouble to you Chiron; trust medical expertise, but not personal judgment call, that should be Captain's decision," Kallic was a former STG, he is rather strict in terms of chain-of-command, Tom had mentioned going to the Captain to see if it was alright if she could stay and Kallic had to agree, it was the Turian's ship after all. Yet here the asari was schmoozing up to Chiron; Tom had found her, she should be shaking his hand. Kallic glanced over at his human crew mate and noticed suspicion behind his eyes for the asari, he didn't understand the full reasons why - yet - but he concurred with the feeling. He nodded at Tom as he mentioned leaving.

"I got to get back to my duties. System Diagnostics wont run themselves."

Kallic was just about ready to set up the equipment to run diagnostics on the syringe when the asari spoke. "Excuse me," she spoke out loud, "but we could be in danger. I sense an electronic presence that is foreign to any ship that I've ever been on--not that I've ever been on too many ships, of course. I don't mean to draw my weapon, but I'm going to in order to find out what's making my nervous system become so heightened. Don't be alarmed. I--I think I'll be okay, for now, but if you want to, you can follow me and watch my back. Er, my '6'."

Kallic raised what counted as an eyebrow at this and looked over at Chiron, then back at the asari, but, she wasn't there!

"Goodness no!" He flailed his arms above his head in exasperation, following after the asari. Catching up to her - which wasn't far considering her condition of just coming out of a coma and being connected to medical equipment - Kallic proceeded to grab the top of her rifle, with his other hand on her shoulder he tore the weapon from her weak hands. "No! No no no no no, Chiron said you must rest for at least an hour before movement, if you think of him so highly you'll get back in that medbay and do as he says. Besides, think I heard Captain and Tom talking about Thiyan taking care of a Geth onboard, don't know the details, but not important, if there was danger Captain would notify the crew, us. You're in no condition for playing commando! See how easily I disarmed you, didn't even use a real disarming technique." Kallic sighed deeply. "If Thiyan is with Geth then we're fine, more so if the Captain is there too."

Kallic looked at the assault rifle in his hands and shook his head, "besides, shouldn't even have weapon out on ship, BIG no, unless Captain says so, or there's good reason; and especially not newcomers, don't trust you enough. Firing weapon on ship is dangerous anyways! Could hit a seal, or fuel line; this isn't streamline military vessel, it's a transport vessel, civilian ((I'm assuming)) model, could kill us if a bullet hits the wrong thing! This is not a toy, this is a weapon of mass destruction, you are not a commando enemies aboard ships, you are an asari, mind you a tough one, but not in enough shape yet to go around playing soldier. You fire this and you are making us a bad day!"

Kallic activated his Omni-Tool and entered the assault rifle's remedial systems and adjusted it to his own weapon harness, fitting the weapon to his back promptly. "Will get this back when Captain has approved; won't ask for any other weapons, but will trust that you respect us and our ship enough not to draw them, or to give them over willingly." The salarian shook his head and rubbed his large eyes, he turned her around with his hand on the small of her back (between the shoulder blades) he escorted her gently and slowly back to the medbay.

"Must apologize for yelling, can be over-concerned sometimes; both with, mmm...your safety....And ours. Not Doctor, but patients important just the same, people important, minored in Xeno-cultural and religious studies, changed the way I saw things, was just like other salarians, cold-blooded intellectual; amphibian, technically still amphibian, but could change that myself," he laughed lightly to himself, clearing his throat. "Anyway, please accept apology, but also respect our authority, been on this ship years, as a salarian that is a long time,know what I'm talking about, and know what I'm doing."

Kallic smiled as genuinely as he could to ease any tension the asari still had.

"But in you...I see the potential to see the Force die, to turn away from its will..."
"You are beautiful to me, exile. A dead spot in the Force, an emptiness in which its will might be denied."
"But no Jedi ever made the choice you did. To sever ties so completely, so utterly, that it leaves a wound in the Force..."
"I would have killed the galaxy to preserve you...You are more precious than you know..."'s verbatim!-A quote from Darth Traya (Kreia)
