Is it True? (backpost)

Mission: Ties To Blood: Season 1, Episode 3.
Location: Operations

Henk was walking through the station looking for Vos. With a PADD in his hands he looked around. His eyes shooting from left to right. He just heard about Beverly from one of his people. He managed to smolder it, but if it would continue he might not succeed.

After a couple of minutes he found Vos in Ops. “Commander, My progress report.” Henk said as he handed over the PADD. “We are running out of parts, but we will find a way to make repairs anyway.”

He stopped and looked at Vos. “It is true about the captain?”

"I know about as much as you do at this point, Lieutenant." Vos said, his attention mostly directed at the Master System's Display table in the center of the room. It was the truth. With the internal sensors on the fritz, Mason was directing security teams into a search pattern, relying on an open comm link between them and closing the net if they saw any sign of the Captain.

Vos didn't want to discuss openly what he'd heard from Aerelon and Mason about the Captain's behavior. The way they made it sound, she was acting like that thing they'd met in the deepest parts of those ruins back on their first mission together. It seemed like so long ago now. Vos repressed a shiver. Weren't the Borg enough for one week? Now they had to handle this again?

"Commander, can I talk with you in private?" Henk asked.
He needed to know what it was all about. Beverly saved him from that piece of rock, maybe now he could save her. Already Henk pieced together all the pieces he could but what came out was not pleasant.

The XO turned and leveled a stare at Henk. "Lieutenant, if you think I'm holding something back from you, you're going to have to deal with it. What I just told you is the truth. If you'd like a firsthand account of the Captain's behavior then go talk to Commander Mason, but all I have are rumor and hearsay at the moment." he sighed. "I'm giving an order for everyone to carry a sidearm at all times. Nonessential personnel will remain in their quarters and all Starfleet crew will stay in pairs of at least two. The Captain is not well and could be armed and dangerous, given her current mental state. Those who encounter her will report her position and wait for a security team." he said. "Is there anything else, Mr. O'Brien?"

Henk swallowed back some words, and just looked at his Xo.
"No Sir, nothing more." Henk said "Just let me know if you need my help."
With that henk turned around and walked back to the fighter bay. The only place he saw accept for his quarters.
