Mission: Plotting New Courses. Season 1, Episode 7
Location: Klingon Ship

Milika had been sitting in the temporary quarters as the ship made its way back to Earth after the recent destruction of Starbase 611. Her heart was at a lose as her home and bar was destroyed, she hadn't been there long but she felt that a part of her was missing. She held her daughter who was sleeping now. She looked at Thomas tears running down her face and she didn't know why.

What she didn't know that her leg was broken and it was pain running through her. She had fallen and someone had landed right on her leg in the scuffle to get off the Starbase. Her daughter was unharmed but she was in pain. She just looked at Thomas then down at her daughter, she really didn't know what to say.

Thomas was leaning up against the back of the bed trying to comfort her but he knew that nothing he was going to say would probably make a difference, he was used to roaming the galaxy but this had to be hard, especially since now she was left with nothing. "Well, hopefully we can find a new place to set you up at that will be even better."

She just leaned against him as more pain shot through her leg "ow!!" she said as she grabbed her leg with one hand. Tears ran down her face as she was now in pain.

"I know it hurts sweetie, but I don't want you seeing one of the Klingon doctors, those butchers will more then likely just want to cut the damn thing off then treat it. I'd rather have a federation doctor take a look at you."

She nodded, "Why does this have to happen, I was just getting started and it all ends. I can only imagine with the crew are going through right now." Milika said as she looked at him. "I lost everything except my daughter and you. I lost my...home," she added as more tears ran down her face as the ship made its way back to Earth. What was she going to do now, she loved being in space.

"Well, I have some credits saved up, we'll get back to earth, get you fixed up and then see if we can find some nice border station or planet to move to and set back up shop, and besides you have the important things here with you, the things that you can't replace." Thomas hugged her closer.

She smiled, "I would rather be on a Station then on Earth, I know it sounds crazy after what just happened. But I feel happier in space then on any planet." She said as she smiled at him and kissed him. "I love you Thomas," she said and then kissed her daughter's forehead as she slept.

Thomas smiled at her then got up and rooted around in his bag for a second then grabbed a small vile. Gently "Here take one of these hun, it will help with the leg until we get back to have someone look at it." He handed her two pills from the small canister. "They are pain meds from Bajor I picked up."

She took the pills, "Thanks," she said as she quickly made a bed for Sira and laid her in it and then looked at Thomas. "I hope we get back to Earth soon, cause I think my leg is pretty bad." Milika said as she felt it throbbing.

"Yeah, we'll get you taken care of, I promise." He kissed her again. "Just try not to move it very much and we'll keep it elevated."

She just nodded and cuddled up to Thomas and feel asleep, she was exhausted and drained of energy. But before she passed out, "I love you Thomas," she said as she fell asleep.

Thomas let hie eyes close. "Computer lights off" The room went dark. The visions of the station exploding were still visible to him. Like phantoms haunting him in the night. He couldn't get them out of his head.
