PNPC Ambassador Kalianna Nicholotti - Reaching for History

Recommended Posts

((Corridors Outside Sickbay, USS Columbia))

 

::It had been a very long time since she had last stood in this place, and it looked entirely new. Nothing was left of the battles fought, save for the memories (or lack thereof) and the log entries and damage reports from years prior. It hadn’t taken Kali long to uncover her link to the ship before it had been refit, and in a way she hoped that her history with her would open the doors to some memories somewhere.::

 

::But here as she stood, just outside the doors where the dragon had apparently crashed through the bulkhead, she still remembered nothing.::

 

::With a frown, she looked down at the padd in her hand at the damage reports and the images they included. Deep claw marks marred the metallic walls and the doors themselves had been thrown haphazardly to the side in the process. Dark stains on the deck left little to the imagination when it came to the price paid by those who defended sickbay that day, and the lighting itself seemed dim in the aftermath of it all.::

 

::And yet Kali could not remember any of it.::

 

::The logs from the event that would eventually take her and her crew through the waycorridors to Odyssey station, in another galaxy, outlined the trials the crew faced from the newly named Draco Stellarium, barely making it out of the Azure nebula alive. The destruction to the ship was awful and complete, leaving entire sections uninhabitable until their return to the Starbase.::

 

::As Kali looked up at the door she saw, nor remembered, any of it. The pristine surfaces only rang of a newness that didn’t come with history. The carpet on the deck was clean and fresh. There was no trace of claw marks or death, aside from the idea that this was sickbay. And in her mind, there was no trace of any of the memories that should have been there.::

 

::With a sigh, she stopped thinking about it. The pictures on the padd looked so unfamiliar, not just in the context of her past, but in the context of the present as well. The ship had truly been refit, completely and totally. It shone like it had just come off the assembly line, still in need of her first shakedown cruise. Perhaps that was what threw her…::

 

::Apparently it threw her so hard she didn’t even notice that she was blocking the door until she was nearly face to face with an officer she didn’t know.::

 

Duyzer: ?

 

::Kali blinked, focusing her crystalline blues on the person who had seemingly materialized in front of her.::

 

Nicholotti: Oh, I’m sorry. ::Smiling.:: Guess I kind of got lost with my thoughts there.

 

Duyzer: ?

 

::The ambassador stepped back to give him room to enter the corridor. She nodded in greeting.::

 

Nicholotti: Indeed. I don’t recognize you. Are you newly assigned here?

 

::Of course he was. Kali let her own mischievous grin dance across her face at her own question. They were all newly assigned, so this officer she didn’t know was also.::

 

Duyzer: ?

 

::With a slight bit more flourish that was probably necessary, Kali bowed slightly, letting her long raven hair fall over her shoulder.::

 

Nicholotti: Ambassador Kalianna Nicholotti, at your service.

 

Duyzer: ?
