(21:58:23) ChieftainThossk: You live again, Stho'Ka.
(21:58:44) DoctorTav: :: ducks away from the convulsion, barely being smacked by her head. Tav checks his Tricorder, and hearing Thossk repeats after him :: You live again.
(21:58:54) ColDougMcKnight: :: Pipes his voice in over speakers in the dome, via a connection to his helmet he's been using to monitor the conversation. :: Supply locker, Wright. 7 o'clock.

(22:00:51) ColDougMcKnight: Does she seem to have motor control? We'll need a few seconds to beam through if we need to keep her still. For her own safety and ours, Chieftain.
(22:01:20) SthoKa: :: accepts the water, moving her tongue, then speaks somewhat clearer :: Live...but was dead? :: an arm shivers, contracts and pushes a claw against the ground, her body twisting to raise itself ::
(22:02:08) DoctorTav: :: replaces his hand on Stho'Ka's neck, not forcing her back to the ground, but subtly communicating that she should stay down another moment :: You live. I am Tav, the healer. You live. I need to know how much pain you feel.

(22:02:52) LtAlexisWright: :: attempts to assist Stho'Ka into a seated position, then stops once she sees what Tav is doing, but offers her the canteen :: More water?

(22:19:47) ChieftainThossk: :: does not understand computer or ship, but nods :: Please do what you can.

(22:21:14) LtAlexisWright: ACTION> A crate materializes next to Wright.
(22:22:12) DoctorTav: +T'Kirr+ Commander. Good news. The Vrissk, Stho'Ka, is sitting up, talking to us, has had some water and is about to eat. All her vitals are looking good. She is in pain, but I am controlling that.
(22:23:22) VAdmBlackthorne: :: smiles widely ::
(22:24:03) LtAlexisWright: Ah, here it is. :: opens the crate and pulls out a variety of raw foods - fish, nuts, berries, tubers, vegetables, grains, fruit - and lays them out before Stho'Ka :: Do any of these things look like something you are used to eating?
(22:24:35) CdrTKirr: +Tav+ :: clearly pleased, looks to Blackthorne :: Well done, Doctor. You, and Lieutenant Wright. How do you wish to proceed?
(22:26:18) SthoKa: :: leans down and sniffs, snorting at the fish and choosing the fruit with a clawed hand, careful to take a small bite as her coordination isn't very refined ::
(22:26:21) DoctorTav: +T'Kirr+ I am going to take scans as she eats, but barring any problems that arise, we will move forward with Chieftain Thossk, and then on to the rest of the Vrissk. Can we send a probe to make sure we have the electrical signal for every Vrissk on the planet, and make sure there aren't more in limbo down here?

(22:42:47) SthoKa: The pain of moving on with no sleep.
(22:42:53) LtAlexisWright: Soreness? Aching?
(22:43:20) SthoKa: Yes, that pain.
(22:43:24) DoctorTav: +T'Kirr+ We are having some possible complications. I am not completely sure if it's just normal, whatever normal is, for someone who's just been transported back to life... What she is feeling doesn't sound terribly alarming. StillI would like to bring Stho'Ka back to Sickbay to make sure.
