Still here...

Posted on Sun Feb 28th, 2010 @ 11:45pm by Lieutenant Helen Lyons [PNPC]


I am now alone in my room. Lt Daniels – Jack - is in the next room trying to sleep on that sorry excuse for a couch, and I just have to get this out of my head before I sleep.

Every time I close my eyes I see the blood and carnage in sickbay, the broken bodies, the blood…people who I had only been speaking to moments before.... Gone. The Gorn spared no one, wringing people’s necks like rabbits or for those that fought back a more gruesome end from their claws. The claws – I can still feel them slicing into my back…

They left me till last, I think because I was able bodied and I drew blood from one as they began their attack on sickbay. There were only three of them and they made mince meat of us. We had no weapons to speak of – except for exoscalpels and the like.

The one that I injured I think wanted to show his fellows that my hit was a fluke - I could have told him that! So it decided to 'fight' me. Not much of a fight, he was bigger, stronger and I am amazed that my exoscalpel was able to even penetrate that hide of his. He had me down in three hits, the last of which I could feel it's claws push past my lower spine. I am still amazed that he didn't break it.

And then there was phaser fire and I never thought I would be as happy to see a man with a phaser rifle, as I was to see Jack in that doorway.

I am glad that I let those that were able to go and help with the defence of the station. They at least had a chance at survival. And after all, I had hoped that the Gorn would leave sickbay in peace…I won’t be making that mistake again. I hope I will never be in a position to have a choice to make that mistake again… Ha!

Ahhh - I'm rambling. I really need to sleep. I’ll finish this later when I have the stomach for it.

End log
