New course [sickbay]

Sherman walked into the sickbay, the doors hissing closed behind him as he did. The room was neat and clean and the staff of medical personnel moved around quietly, performing their assigned duties.

The new chief medical officer had just come from his quarters and stowed his gear, making the Columbia home as much as any ship could be. Once done, he gathered the few things he always carried with him while on duty, and made the journey to his medical facility. As much of a codger as he was, Archibald was impressed. He noticed a man... well, not a man... but a doctor approaching him. The 'man' was bespeckled along the side of his face and down his neck and around his throat. He was a Trill, and Sherman knew that this must be the former CMO that he was replacing.

Tam put out his hand in the fashion of humans, "Dr. Sherman, I presume?" The Trill could not help but smile at his own pun - a line from ancient Earth history.

Doc Sherman took the hand offered by the former CMO. A reasonable greeting ... good start. "And you must be Tam." Instinctively, the doctor looked at the Trill's head, to the location where the report indicated he had been severely injured on the Columbia's previous mission. Sherman had read many injury reports before, but this time the details were sketchy, as if they had been 'edited' by Starfleet. This ship had been through an interesting time of late.

"And how has that healed up?" he asked, gesturing to Tam's head. Tam was momentarily taken back by his replacement's bluntness, but could tell that Sherman's concern was genuine.

"It is coming along nicely," said the Trill, his hand going to the scarred tissue along his scalp. "No worse for wear, now, although I have to admit that it was touch and go there for awhile - at least from what Dr. Chan has told me of the ordeal. C'mon, let me show you around."

The sickbay was set up like most facilities on most starships and so was very familiar. Tam left the CMO's office, leading Sherman into a lab, then an exam room and into the ICU/treatment room. They followed around the half-circle sickbay passing medical storage lockers on their right and the operating room to the left, until they came at last to a second office where worked the chief nurse and doctor.

Tam entered the room with Sherman on his tail, "Chan, Barlow... I'd like to introduce you to Doctor Archibald Sherman, your new CMO." There was an oriental man and a tall, dusty-brown haired woman standing in front of him. Both were older, Sherman could tell, at least older than the average cadet that Starfleet seemed to place in charge of everything - and he liked that. Having a more mature staff made for a much easier command... unless he found these two too set in their ways. Well, he'd just have to see how well they all worked together.

The Trill doctor spoke again, "I am officially released from Starfleet, sir, but until we reach my homeworld, my skills are at your service."

:ooc: Feel free to continue RP'ing out this gathering even though the main story seems like it may be going ahead of you. I will keep it all together.

Doc Sherman greeted each of his new staff, then allowed Tam to continue with the tour of the facility. He was impressed with the orderly ICU and storage facility. The well stocked shelves would undoubtedly be depleted during the mission, as they always were.

At the conclusiion of the tour, the new CMO held an informal briefing with the senior medical staff, introducing himself and providing some details of his previous assignments. Everyone noticed the lack of explanation for his short stay aboard many of those vessels. After the briefing, it was clear to everyone that Doc, as he preferred to be called by his staff, was highly competent but ran things his way, and he most definitely wasn't the amiable CMO that his predecessor had been.

:ooc:

Quick question: What is the total number of medical staff on Columbia? Are there additional doctors/nurses/specialists? Just found this info on the Columbia details page - thanks!

Doc sat idly in his office, monitoring the staff as they performed their routine tasks in sick bay. Over the past few weeks he had drilled them relentlessly until the group operated like a smoothly running machine. This hadn't endeared himself to any of them, he knew for sure, but they would appreciate his training when the first crisis hit.

The yellow alert beacon flashed on the wall opposite Doc's desk. "Looks like that first crisis will be arriving sooner than later.", he mumbled as he got up and walked to storage to again verify the quantities and organization of their supplies.

Doc read the message and immediately opened a communication channel to his staff. "All right people, we've got an emergency evacuation of the U.S.S. Merrimac on our hands. I want trauma teams A and B prepped in rad suits ready to transport in 10 minutes. Team A will transport first with me and team B will be on standby to offer assistance when required. Make sure your kits are well stocked for radiation treatments."

Switching over to broadcast to sickbay only, he continued, "Let's be ready folks. You know the drill and you are prepared for this. Dr. Chan will coordinate sickbay while I'm with the away team. I want extra rad trauma packs set up at each station." Sherman got up from his desk and found Dr. Chan amidst the bustle of sickbay. "Please inform the next shift that they may be required as backup."

With a final nod to Chan, Doc grabbed his own kit. He stuffed in extra radiation packs until it was bursting, and headed towards the transporters. "Too bad about the suits", he mumbled to no one in particular, "Can never get my damn lab coat tucked in properly."

:ooc: Hey Brian, in the narrative above, I had Barlow as your Head Nurse, but it is your staff and for the most part they will only be names so feel free to change it as you please. I just wanted to point that out for consistancy and so no one is confused later.  ;)
