[USS Amalthea - s'Lhoell quarters]

Tess was about to burst. If she had been quite vocal earlier, she now held back with some effort and said nothing. Although she was rightly upset, she still had to be careful to maintain a certain etiquette. After all, she was a captain around the clock, not just on duty. And she had to stay calm for Fvienn, too.

She listened silently as Rayek accepted Taheen's demand, but not without adding a condition to it. Which Taheen refused. Tess clenched her jaws so hard they began to ache.

She waited until Taheen and tr'Hei had left, waited a moment longer to make sure they had moved away far enough so that they couldn't hear them anymore, before turning to Rayek and venting her frustration.

"I just don't believe this! You're really going to have this ridiculous fight with her now? You can't be serious!" She paused as she realized that this was all for cultural reasons that they couldn't really do anything about. That didn't make it any better, though. "Is this like the kal-if-fee on Vulcan?" She hoped not. After all, it usually meant fight to the death. She didn't think Rayek would have agreed to this one. She was just confused, and if she was honest, she was a little scared.

Tess' eyes widened in disbelief at what the Romulan embassy aide had just said. He had been watching their private holodeck program?! There was probably no greater insolence! And Rayek even backed down and felt like he had to justify himself to him? Tess felt her blood boiling. The information that Rayek had been in the Tal'Shiar she had known for a long time, of course, which is why this caused no reaction in her - unlike the behavior of the two Romulans in her living room.

"I rather think that it looks bad for the Romulan government to learn that the ambassador's aide has gained improper access to private contents of a Federation citizen, a Starfleet captain and his first officer at that!" she said."You should be ashamed of yourself. I don't believe the audacity of you! This will definitely have repercussions. First thing in the morning... no, right now I'll arrange meeting with Ambassador Jarok about this!" Tess was about to talk herself into a frenzy. Did he really think he could do whatever he wanted? Only when Fvienn started crying in her arms did she stop. She soothingly put her hand on the back of the baby's head and began rocking him back and forth. "I'm sorry, my darling, everything is gonna be okay" she whispered.

tr'Hei kept talking about the fight again. And again there was hardly any resistance from Rayek! She just didn't understand. What was wrong with him?

"Well, right now, nothing at all is being done here," Tess said firmly, her voice trembling with agitation. "I want you two to leave right now."

Tess listened with growing dread. It was clear that neither Taheen nor tr'Hei were going to back away from their standpoint. There must be some way out of this! It couldn't be true that her marriage with Rayek was invalid!

He scowl was directed at tr'Hei when he addressed her. "He makes perfect sense to me", she replied firmly. "It is not my intention to burn down the efforts that are made between our people, Mr. tr'Hei, but as Rayek already stated, he is a Federation citized now, and Federatin law applies to our marriage. I want to be granted time to get legal advice on this." She glanced to Rayek to see if he would approve. Of course their contact to Starfleet Command was cut off due to the closing of the worm hole. But then the temporary command on New Bajor would have to do. She didn't want to decide anyhting on this without knowing what their right were.

Then she remembered another thing. She looked to Taheen. "You mentioned the 'right of challenge'. What does that mean?" It sounded very Vulcan to her, but she would know better than to state that out loud.

NPC Ensign Lared tr'Movel
[USS Amalthea - Deck 8 - Sickbay]

Lared looked up at the doctor uncertain.  "What's a BCP?" the Romulan asked but then thought better of the question.  He wasn't likely going to understand the medical terminology.  Since the feeling was beginning to fade, he shook his head.  "That's not necessary.  The feeling is going away. It was like he was in my head again."


NPC Lieutenant jg. Roberto Padrini (Medical)
[USS Amalthea - Sickbay]


"Oh, it's bascially a hyperencephalogram, it measures the brain wave acitivity", Roberto explained. He was ready to elaborate further, but Lared made up his mind already. The doctor frowned. Like he was in his head again? With a tap on his comm badge, he called the nurse in the reception area.

 =/\= "Is Commander tr'Lhoell in the sickbay somewhere?" =/\=

 =/\= "No, doctor. The Romulan aide, Mr. tr'Hei has been here until a moment ago." =/\=







NPC Arrain (Centurion) Taheen t'Raghaellh

NPC Ambassadorial Aide Rhienn tr'Hei (disguise of Telmuk tr'Lhoell, Tal'Shiar operative)
Commander Rayek tr'Lhoell
[USS Amalthea - s'Lhoell quarters]

Taheen had followed Romulan custom with the displaying of the Honor blade - or at least it's replica.  Her family's actual honor blade had been taken from the family when her father had been accused of treason.   The blade she displayed currently was a rubber facsimile - rubber being the only substance the replicator in her room would create a weapon design out of.   With ancient custom rules met, Taheen complied with the Captain's order, sheathing the fake weapon, but she stood her ground firmly.   

"There is no mistake. Rayek and I were engaged 14 years ago - an engagement that was never formally canceled.  By Romulan law, I have the right to seek justice for the slight to my honor."

Rayek, who had placed himself between Taheen and his family when he first noted the blade in her hand during her entrance, finally found his voice which had been shocked into silence at her bold opening statement.  "Taheen, while I admit that we had discussed that as a possible plan to save you from being persecuted for your father's crimes, no such engagement was formally made."  He pointed out in clarification.

At this point, Telmuk in the persona of Rhienn, cleared his throat to cut in.  "Actually, Commander - it is you who is mistaken.  The engagement was signed and filed by both Taheen's father and your own, the morning that Senator Tocul was arrested.  The documentation was processed two weeks after his death, but the engagement is valid and binding."

At this point, the aide stepped forward with a PADD holding it out towards Rayek expectantly for him to take.    Which Rayek did with a frown, looking over the electronic form for any sign of counterfeiting.

"While I suspect you are fully aware of Romulan law, I will explain it plainly for your unfortunate wife."  Telmuk turned to regard Tess.  "By Romulan law, the oldest promises are those which the law recognizes foremost.   Your engagement to Rayek began only three years ago whereas his engagement to Taheen has been 14 years and never revoked - therefore the law recognizes her engagement has having legal validity, not yours.   Rayek was never legally able to marry you."

Rayek had quick skimmed the document to the end and his olive coloring paled at seeing his father's signature and verified DNA scan.  Suddenly, the honeymoon holodeck program made sense.  The program background had been based on scans and intel shared with Starfleet after Hobus.  His engagement to Taheen had been in there without his knowing.  Fvadt.  If he'd only bothered to dig deeper into what he perceived was just a holodeck cultural program add in, this could have been avoided.

Captain Tess t'Lhoell
[USS Amalthea - s'Lhoell quarters]

Tess listened with growing dread at what she was hearing. How could this be true? She knew how meticulous Rayek was when it came to ruling out any chances and possibilities that might get in the way of their marriage. Tess didn't understand how this could have escaped Rayek's attention or awareness. With a couple of steps she was at her husband's side and glanced down on the PADD Rhien tr'Hei had handed him. It was written in Romulan, while her spoken Romulan had become pretty well, she wasn't able to decipher the script just as quick. At Rhienn's words of explanation Tess met his eyes while she was told that her marriage was invalid.

He chest and stomach tightened almost painfully and sent a wave of almost panic through her. Fvienn started to become upset in her arms, she could feel it. To calm him down, she started to rock him gently. She turned her head to look at Rayek. "Is this true?", she asked glancing down at the PADD. She hoped that he might find some flaw in it that would make this whole ridiculous situation dissolve. "Is there any way we can fight this?", she added another question.

NPC Lieutenant jg. Roberto Padrini (Medical)
[USS Amalthea - Deck 8 - Sickbay]



NPC Ambassadorial Aide Rhienn tr'Hei (disguise of Telmuk tr'Lhoell, Tal'Shiar operative)
[USS Amalthea - Deck 8 - Sickbay

Telmuk watched Rayek carefully.  Had his brother noticed his hand reaching for where he might normally have worn a disruptor? If he did, Rayek said nothing about it... though he did glance back towards him even after stating 'there was somewhere urgent he had to be'.  It was so very tempting to Telmuk to try reading his brother.  But if he were careless in doing so, it would be noticed and then his cover would be blown.

It was concerning that he had run into Rayek here.   Telmuk knew Rayek had been seeking permission to gain access to the tr'Movel's memories.  Fvadt! He needed to know if that happened; and if so, what had he found out?

The Romulan 'aide' was met in the main treatment area of the Sickbay by a nurse who greeted him assessingly, while asking if she could help him with anything.

Telmuk introduced himself as Rhienn tr'Hei, Romulan Ambassadorial aide - in the hopes that the title might impress and give him more leverage to speak to the recent awoken patient.  "I'm here just to check up on how Lared tr'Movel is?  Would it be possible to see him briefly?"

The nurse checked her PADD a moment and from her expression, Lared could tell the answer was going to be no.  That was okay.  With his training, Telmuk didn't need to be in the same room as his target thought it certainly made things easier.

While the nurse began her explanation with how currently the attending doctor was in with him and that visitors were limited to immediate family for the time being, Telmuk cast out his mind searching for the one he needed to search.  He first encountered the nurse's - skipped over that one, then located what he assumed was the doctor's - though he was quite surprised by the level distrust and hatred for his brother he read in even just a surface read.  Padrini.  Telmuk made note of the name.  The man could be useful in the future.

The next mind he encountered was tr'Movel's.   The man's mind was while not closed off or shielded was...  hyper-aware of intrusion - from having just gone through an intense mental ordeal.  It was likely that the man was able to pick up on even this light level of surface read.  Thankfully, the information he needed was right there in the forefront of the man's mind..  the fact that the shuttle had been remote accessed and that the culprit for doing so used a certain authorization code.   While tr'Movel didn't recognize the code, Telmuk did.  It was the authorization code he'd pilfered from the Romulan flight office that had toured him.

Thought it didn't implicate him directly, it brought the investigation one step closer to discovering him.  This worried Telmuk greatly.   Fvadt!   He frowned and withdrew from the other Romulan's mind just as the other man began to question why he was feeling that same intrusive sensation in his mind.   Telmuk grimaced at the headache that doing a distant reading gave him.   

Nodding in acknowledgement to the nurse's apologetic words, Telmuk left Sickbay feeling slightly panicked.   It was time to move forward on 'Plan B' - despite his wavering on whether his brother deserved to die... his orders from Vandar were clear, and Telmuk knew all too well the consequences if he failed.   He would be the next that an operative would be sent to eliminate.




NPC Ensign Lared tr'Movel
[USS Amalthea - Deck 8 - Sickbay]

After Rayek left there was a moment where Lared was left exhausted from the ordeal.   He looked to the doctor that had recommended against the meld and now understood why.   In part, he kind of wished he'd listened to the doctor's sage advice - but then Rayek seemed to have found what was needed.   The person responsible was going to face justice..  so maybe it had been worth it.

"I know, I disregarded your warning... and I half wish I hadn't... but thank you, for staying and overseeing his... search...  It helped reassure me."

His thankful mindset reminded him that he hadn't expressed his appreciation to the medical staff.  "Also, thank you and the rest of the medical staff, for not giving up on me.   Any Romulan physician would have done so weeks ago." he commented.

He let the doctor do his medical scans wondering once more about the doctor's disapproval of the telepathy.  It had been terrible but the information had been retrieved so in all Lared supposed it had been worth it.  "There's no neurological side-effects, is there?" he questioned as the doctor silently studied his medical tricorder.

It was then suddenly Lared felt that same intrusive feeling in his mind.  He shook his head in an attempt to dislodge it.  "Ugh... I hope this feeling doesn't linger."

When Lared thanked him, Roberto shook his head dismissively. "That is my job as a doctor, really no need to thank me for that." He offered a small smile. That smile, however, faded rather quickly and was replaced by a frown at what Lared then said. Romulans ... they would have let him die?? Lared was actually a Romulan Roberto kinda liked, though many aspects of the culture were just disgusting to the doctor.

While Padrini continued to monitor the readings for a moment longer, Lared asked a question about side-effects. "Actually, there are known to be some side-effects, which are also quite common. But it will fade with time." He tore his eyes away from the bio bed monitor to look at Lared. "I can run a BCP if you like, just in case", he offered.










Captain Tess t'Lhoell
[USS Amalthea - Quarters]

The afternoon brought more of the same ship routine that Rayek was proficient at.  There was still no sign of nor contact with any astrocetus but the ship's operations department kept up a steady signal and search.  He priority reassigned an engineering team from the investigation of the shuttle - which to his mind was now considered as solved - to emptying out the personnel quarters and building the hobby garden area.

Later in the afternoon, after having detoured to the class-M planet to pick up a load of soil and having the transporter filter out any foreign bacteria and organisms, Rayek called on Benjin who was due to get off shift within the hour to direct him to the cargo bay area where the soil had been deposited and instructed him on where to bring the dirt.  The shovel and wheelbarrow were already replicated and waiting for the cadet in the cargo overtop of the pile of dirt.

As evening came about, after a wonderful meal of a new recipe he'd found called pancit bihon, Rayek settled mentally to a relaxing evening with his family.  He smiled at Fvienn and Tess'  amusing antics as he cleared away the last of the dinner dishes.   "I'm glad you liked it.  I'll note the recipe as something to make again," he responded to her compliment.

With the kitchen clean, Rayek went over to the ferret habitat and opened the cage to allow Thrafv, their Cardassian ferret, out for some exercise.   While he had been cautious at first with allowing Thrafv near Fvienn, over the past several months the two had grown close and while Fvienn still had yet to learn to be gentle, the ferret had learned that aggressive displays were not tolerated and instead adapted to evading the infant's grasping reach or tolerating it until either parent could loosen Fvienn's hold.  Yet in those times when Fvienn fell asleep in either Rayek's or Tess' arms on the couch, the ferret would curl up beside the infant almost protectively.  Rayek highly approved of this protective instinct.

He had just spread out a blanket on the floor for the family to lay out together for some playtime when a chime sounded at their quarter's door.  Rayek glanced over to Tess curiously.  "Were you expecting anyone?" he asked curiously.

He knew this evening Tamo'nar, and Rah'ul even, had volunteered to spend time with Fabiano to give Tess and him time to spend together with Fvienn.   Knowing the ferret's propensity for trying to escape via open doors, Rayek reached out and snatched up Thrafv holding the ferret securely before calling out "Come", activating the main room's automatic doors.

Out of all the people Rayek might have expected at his door,  Taheen and the ambassadorial aide, tr'Hei, were not at all on the list.  Taheen especially did not look happy and Rayek was tempted right there to be rude and order them out, before the problem could really begin.   But he hesitated.

That was all the time that needed for his life to turn upside down.

Taheen stepped forward without hesitation with tr'Hei lingering a step behind.  In her hand, she held a Romulan styled blade that Rayek recognized instantly as a dathe'anofv-sen - an honor blade.  "Rayek. I denounce you for your unfaithfulness during the long years of our engagement.  By the laws you once vowed to uphold I claim the right of Challenge."

Tess had stood up from the chair with Fvienn in her arms and settled down on the blanket with him, putting him down carefully so he could crawl around a bit. At the sound of the door chime, Tess looked back at Rayek just as surprised.

"No, I wasn't", she replied to his question. After Rayek had gotten hold of Thrafv, Tess turned her head when the door opened. Arrain t'Raghaellh? Wtih Mr tr'Hei? She marched right in which bewildered Tess a little. And what the heck was she holding in her hand?? A weapon! Instinctively she reached for Fvienn to hold him closer to her as she followed the Romulan woman's words.

Engagement?

Right of challenge??

She got up from the floor, feeling thoroughly irritated. "Arrain, I'm not sure what makes you think you can show up here with a weapon like that. Put that away at once! And then I would like to know what is going on? I can only assume that this is a misunderstanding."

Captain Tess t'Lhoell
[USS Amalthea - Briefing Room]

Tess regarded Rayek for a moment when he told her - kinda reluctantly - that Roberto had not approved of the mind meld. She could imagine how much of a tense situation that had been. It was good that Rayek won through, Roberto could have had the leverage to deny even her Captain's orders over the medical well-being of the patient. She was glad it had turned out okay in the end. She would need to make sure to thank Lared personally for his contribution and willingness to comply.

"Thank you for the warning", she replied with a little amused grin on her face.

When Rayek walked over to her to embrace her in a hug, Tess didn't hesitate to melt into it. It was something she had needed and for a moment it felt like all of the pressure was taken from her as she rested her head against Rayek's chest. "I hope it is", she said quietly when he said he hoped it was almost over. The past weeks had been really draining.
They stayed for a moment like this and when they were about to step away from each other Tess leaned over to steal a kiss from her husband before she let go of him.

His suggestion of having lunch in the arboretum was met with a smile. "That sounds lovely."







Captain Tess t'Lhoell
[USS Amalthea - s'Lhoell quarters] (later that day - evening)

Her talk with Roberto had been good. Lared seemed to have taken the mentally exhausting process of the mind meld well, as he had started to recover already by the time she had left the sickbay. The lunch with Rayek in the arboretum had been lovely and it was an opportunity for Tess to relax and just have a good time. They even brought Fvienn and it was just so relaxing.

Now they were in their quarters and just had dinner. Tess enjoyed the time with Rayek and Fvienn. The mother was just wiping Fvienn's little mouth clean from the mushed food he'd had. As she did that she made a game out of it as Fvienn started to try and grab the cloth from her and Tess let him grab the corner of it before tugging it out of his grasp again which caused a brief giggle from the infant as he looked up at her with smiling eyes. In turn, Tess couldn't help but laugh as well.

"Dinner was delicious, ciccino. Thank you", she said to Rayek who had become an even more excellent cook.

[USS Amalthea - Briefing Room]

Tess looked up at him when he rested a hand on her shoulder, reassuring her that they had caught the culprit. She gave him a small smile, but it didn't reach her eyes. There was just this one little bit of uncertainty left, other than Rayek who seemed to be completely sure. "I hope so."

At the information that the Romulan aide was seen in sickbay, Tess nodded in acknowledgement. "That comes in handy. I planned to speak to Roberto anyways regarding Lared, so I can ask him if tr'Hei is still in sickbay as well." She picked up her PADD and rose from the seat before she took a step or two towards Rayek. "When shall we meet?" She glanced at the chronometer. "In an hour or two?"

She should have known he would make that offer - to let her look into his memory to see it for herself. But it wasn't that she didn't believe him. It was the level of conviction she wanted to be reassured about. And his answer was doing just that.

When he posed his request, Tess looked at him across the room. In comparison to her, he had remained standing - of course. She wondered if a 'memory' like this was even valid as 'proof'. Would Rayek's discovery even mean anything in an official trial?
She thought about his reuqest for a moment longer, then nodded. "Very well, yes, let's revoke all of his access to any devices and turn off the replicator." She then frowned and picked up her PADD to check Rojol's file. "There is no reference at all that he has been in the Tal'Shiar. We'll need to contact Starfleet Intelligence to check this. And I would like a talk with Lared as well." She was aware that all of this likely was slowing things down in Rayek's opinion, but she didn't want to jump the gun on this now. She sought Rayek's eyes. "I would also like to speak to Mr tr'Hei."

Captain Tess t'Lhoell
[USS Amalthea - Briefing Room]

Tess let Rayek conduct the questioning for the most part. She added a question of her own here and there. It was clear that Rayek already had made up his mind as to who the culprit was. While Rojol really couldn't offer anything substantial to lift the weight of suspicion off of him, Tess didn't want to make a decision on it just yet. She wasn't sure how much of an actor Rojol was, but his protestations seemed rather convincing.

When the questioning came to an end, Tess met Rayek's eyes. It was almost as if she could read all of the different thoughts in his mind. She couldn't, really, but she knew him so well. Directing her gaze back on Rojol, Tess finally spoke up. "The evidence is incriminating towards you. I will impose further investigation into this, but you will be confined to your quarters until further notice." She nodded at the security detail that have been waiting near the door.

It was not without protest that Rojol was escorted out, but finally Tess and Rayek were alone. She regarded him for a long moment before she let out a heavy sigh. "Well, that was ... unexpected", she commented and sat back down in her chair, rubbing her palms over her face for a moment. She then lifted her gaze back up to Rayek. "You are absolutely sure it was Rojol's authorization code you saw in Lared's mind? I couldn't have been something else?"

Captain Tess t'Lhoell
[USS Amalthea - Briefing Room]

Tess listened carefully to what Rayek reported. Although she was used to his pacing by now, it irritated her a bit that he couldn't suppress it even here in front of the whole team.

That the shuttle had been remotely controlled was not all that surprising, after all, that had been the most likely theory as to how the accident had happened, but they had not been able to find out who had taken control of the shuttle at that point, since the person had thoroughly covered all tracks. When Rayek brought this up, however, she guessed with burgeoning hope that he now knew, or at least had a promising clue.

Neither was true. Instead, Rayek presented the name of the culprit, that of Ensign Rojol. Tess' eyes grew wide as she stared at the Romulan. She was stunned. A murmur went through the room and then it was suddenly dead silent. It was clear that the young officers, who had to take on so much responsibility so early, were now completely shocked and unsettled.

Tess looked over at Rayek. She could understand the anger he had. She didn't feel any differently. After all, one of her crew had been killed and her husband had been the target. Still, this public display was not what she liked to see. She would have preferred if they had confronted Rojol alone.

Rojol now began to deny everything. Although Tess thought the evidence was very incriminating, no one should be accused without the opportunity to defend themselves.

She rose from her seat. "The briefing is over. Please return to your stations." Her gaze rested on Rojol, who hopefully understood that it did not mean him. She looked up at Rayek. "I would like to conduct a questioning, right now."

Tess looked up when the door opened and Rayek joined them at the meeting. While his task with Lared admittedly had taken longer than she had expected, she found it a little odd that he apologized for his tardiness. It was not as if he had been in bed until just now.
She tried to read from his face how the meeting with Lared went, but couldn't really decide if it went well or not.

"Welcome to the briefing, Commander", Tess said in her role as Captain. "Ensign t'Movel was just reporting her department's progress on tracking down the astrocetus." She gestured for her to continue.

The Romulan flushed slightly. "Actually, I ... I was just about finished", she said, then glanced to Rayek. "Would you like me to repeat for you, Commander?"

Tess looked at Rayek, letting him decide if he accepted the offer or if he would read it later in the report.

[USS Amalthea - Deck 8 - Sickbay]

Every minute that the mind meld lasted, Lared was burdened more and more. Instead of relaxing with time, he became more restless and impatient, wanting it to be over soon.

He winced slightly when he heard Rayek's voice in his head again. He took a few deep breaths. Actually, he didn't want Rayek to go any deeper. He hesitated. But he thought, now he had gone this far before ...

"Yes," he answered and took another breath. He tried to imagine the situation in the shuttle, the moment Rayek had described.

"I will decide that for myself, Commander", Padrini responded grimly.

He watched as Rayek initiated the mind meld. Inwardly it sickened the doctor to imagine that the Romulan manipulated Tess like this into thinking she had feelings for him.

Both men had gone silent and Roberto observed Lared's face. He was tense and clearly uncomfortable. He suppressed a disapproving snort as he kept glancing up to the bio readings.


The feeling of another person's presence in his mind was exceptionally awful. He hated it. It struggled to relax enough to actually let it happen. Rayek then showed him pictures of childhood memories. It was strangely comforting. Although of course those were not his own memories he recognized their lost home Romulus.

Then Rayek tried to remind him of the day of the shuttle explosion. Those memories came back quite clearly now. The part where he had struggled before was clearly visible now. It was amazing! It was an outstanding experience!

Padrini's face hardened more with every word that Rayek spoke. He would lose this argument, he already knew it. He didn't want to risk having Tess to come down here and interfere. But he didn't trust Rayek and he didn't trust his mind melding abilities.

So he would put his foot down as much as he could, although he realized that he wouldn't be able to stop this.

"I strongly advise against it", he stated once more. "I will mark it like this in Mr. tr'Movel's file that this mind meld was conducted against doctor's recommendation. Also, I'd like to be present during the meld. To monitor any unwanted effects."

Lared felt more uncomfortable by the minute. He looked at Rayek with growing uncertainty. But he had said he would do it. He wouldn't back down now. That the doctor said he'd monitor the process was actually rather assuring to him.

"I am prepared to go ahead with it", he once more gave his consent.

When Rayek would arrive at the sickbay, he would not only find Lared, but also Roberto. The doctor had a disapproving look on his face as he stood near the bed where Lared was.

"Commander", Lared greeted him first. "Thank you for coming here so quickly."

"I don't recommend your plans for a mind meld", Roberto stated straightforward. "Mr tr'Movel needs more rest. I don't want to risk any neurological side effects that might worsen his condition."

Lared looked to Rayek in uncertainty. He had woken up and decided to give it a try, but he had not expected Dr. Padrini to step in. He wondered if Rayek would be able to appease the doctor.
