"The Future is Only the Past Rediscovered"

(Previous Post: "Meeting the FCO")

Setting: USS ANUBIS, Deck 12, Astrometrics Lab
Stardate: 30145.0700

The Shillian Scientist smiled as she gazed at the primary work station of the Science lab that she knew all too well.  Despite not having been here in what seemed like an eternity, Maya had been delighted to see that nothing had truly changed since the last time she had been in this specific location.

In Starfleet, Officers worked long and hard to discover their field of expertise.  For some this would be found exactly along the lines of what they enjoyed, but for others they would find their personal best in a field that they might never have expected.  For the Shillian though, her field of expertise had been exactly where she had known it would be from the very first day on EARTH.  Science was in her blood and no amount of training would ever be able to change that.

Koniki had hoped to make an Intel Operative of the Shillian meta-morph but despite endless training sessions Maya could not become the person that the Admiral had hoped her to become. As the Scientist that she was, Maya was thrilled to have her assignment as the Chief Science Officer of the USS ANUBIS reinstated.  In that role she would be able to once again look at the universe around her in a way that few could and in so doing discover something new every time.

Being part of an Intel ship attached to a secret base would have turned many people away to seek a better and safer assignment, but to Maya this had been a dream come true.  As a member of the USS ANUBIS the Shillian would venture to places never heard of by anyone within the Federation or its allies.  Although unspeakable dangers were always around the corner threatening the existence of each and every member of the crew, the potential for amazing scientific discoveries kept the Chief Science Officer where she truly belonged.


Setting: USS ANUBIS, Deck 2, Maya's Quarters
Stardate: 30145.0800

Home. Although her the quarters on the NEW ALEXANDRIA complex had been much bigger, the ones on the USS ANUBIS had been where she felt at home.  As the last member of her race, the ability to call anywhere home had proven to be essential to the Shillian Scientist, and as strange as it might have seen to others, her quarters on board this ship had been that and much more.

Life had brought her to this place, and life had taken her away, but now that the future had presented her with yet a new life it had done so by returning the Shillian to where she had been most at ease and at peace.
