Doctor Alistair Grant sat in his temporary and slightly ill-equipped office, it had the very basics that it needed.  But it lacked something of warmth and empathy, something he felt his profession needed.  Grant was in his late fifties and had a little over 32 years served as a member of Starfleet Medical and the Federation Medical Council. 

The Doctor was sat looking over the patient file for his next customer, Lieutenant Commander John Brown.  The man had lost his Wife towards the end of the war and seemingly gone into a well of self pity, denial and survivors guilt.  His previous Doctor, Roger Masters, had downgraded the Commanders capacity to serve and suggested therapy sessions.  To which Brown declined and reserved his commission as a result.

Doctor Edwards entered a moment later, with Brown closely following her.  Alistair in his native Scottish accent greeted the officer.  "John, come in, take a seat."  He said gestured to a chair at the opposite side of the desk.

John walked in and saw the Doctor he walked in and took a seat .

"Thank You for having the Time to see me Doctor" Finished John

"Och it's not a problem John."  Grant leaned forward onto his desk and asked.  "Do you mind me calling you John?"

Although Alistair held the rank of Commander, he would never allow anybody to call him by his rank.  He preferred Doctor and with his patients he preferred a first name basis.  Something about ranks in a surgery, could at times put people on edge and that was counter productive.

John felt more relaxed with this Doctor then the stiff old annoying one he delt with before he reserved his commision.

"No, that is perfectly fine" Finished John

Brown agreed to Alistair using his first name, that was a good start.  The Doctor sat back in his chair and once again looked over his notes. 

"So John, how are you feeling today?"  He asked not looking away from the notes.

John waited for the first question from the Doctor then he asked the first question.

"I feeling vary good, a bit apprehensive but most are like most people when they sit in front of Doctor's" Finished Brown

The Doctors eyes flicked across towards Brown, a wizard like smile creased his face.  Though the Commander was quite right, people did find visits to the Doctors unnerving.  Especially the kind of Doctors who could hold back their careers.  Grant turned back towards John and placed the notes on his desk.

"Good, so how's your wee man?"  He asked quickly looking at the notes again.  "Steven."

"Mmmm."  Alistair replied taking down some notes.  "This is why it is important for you to be with him, losing a parent at his age can have devastating mental consequences."  He looked back up to John and added.  "Not that its easy at any age of course, but obviously older people can handle it better, because we have more of an ability to reason." 

Alistair slid the notes to one side and placed his hands together and interlocked his fingers.  "Ok then, do you remember your session with Doctor Masters?  He recommended therapy and that you blamed yourself for the death of your Wife.  Is this still the case John?"

"Yes Of Course that's why I am staying close by to him" Finished John then he asked about Kristi

"Yes I do remember the session with Doctor Masters I do remember it didn't end well.....John took a breath "I spend Five months in the wilderness at a cabin I spend those Five months blaming myself and partaking alcohol I had a mental break which Doctor Masters warned about luckily I wasn't in active status when the Mental break happened.I now realize that my Wife Kristi chosen what she did as If I opened that hatch both of us would have died and Steven would have been an Orphan" Finished John

Grant nodded as he listened to the Commander, of course he was aware of the official findings in Kristi's death, it was necessary to have those details.  They talked for the best part of an hour and it was clear John had done some thinking since his last visit to Starfleet Medical.  But they both had to be sure, Grant needed to know Brown wasn't telling him what he wanted to hear and of course Brown had to know he was still up to the task.  Physically he was in good shape, better than most, but the mind was a tricky thing to contend with.  So with that they agreed on a limited duty assignment, which would mean he was temporarily unfit to take on a command position, like that of a First Officer.

Alistair finished his final notes and the two men shook on the deal they'd made.  "So come and see me in whenever you can, after your first assignment.  And remember contact with Steven is crucial."

John returned the Hand shake then looked at the Doctor for a moment.

"Yes of course I see you after my first assignment, and of course he is my top priority" finished John  as he turned and walked out the room and stood in the Hallway he took a deep breath knowing the hard part was over

==Previously On The Bridge.==

After leaving the bridge in the hands of Lt Ingram, Hunter had made his way to the transporter room and down to Starfleet HQ.  He couldn't help but think about leaving a Science Officer in charge and wondered about her abilities, then again the ship was in dock.  It was unlikely she would need to do much.

As Hunter entered Command, two Cadets snapped to attention.  The Captain's keen eye spotted one had his collar unzipped.  "Attend to that collar Mister."  He ordered the red headed Cadet.

"Aye aye Sir."  The Cadet replied reaching up to his collar.  "You represent Starfleet, always whenever you wear that uniform."

On that Hunter carried on and waited at the end of the corridor, that connected to where the medical area was currently positioned.  It didn't take long to see who he'd come to see, he was aware of the time of Brown's appointment, thanks to a favour Dr Grant owed him.  Hunter stood in silence and watched Brown approach.

John saw his old Commanding Officer William Hunter he was glad to see him he staped to Attention.

"Captian, Pleasure to see you again" Finished John towards him still standing Stiff

"Mr Brown."  Hunter said with a nod.

He was a little surprised about it being a pleasure, after what had happened five months earlier.  He looked to be in reasonable condition, but his face betrayed his feelings slightly, not quite as confident as Bill remembered.

Early 2375, Events take place during the final push on Cardassia.  Five months before the mission New Horizon's.

Hunter sat in his command chair, he was gripping the arms tight, the Exeter was in danger of flying apart.  The engines had exceeded maximum and the Chief Engineer was screaming for them to slow down.  That was something the Captain could not do, he was frustrated at that point.  Several hours earlier they'd been providing an escort to a Medical ship, they'd been ordered to join a battlegroup, in an effort to take Cardassia.  Bill had protested the order and said he felt leaving the medical ship was reckless and put them in unnecessary jeopardy.  But he had been overruled and away he went.

Two hours later came the distress call he feared, the USS Essex had been attacked by two Galor class Cardassian ships.  It was a common thing to get S.I.D's in a war, but this one was personal, his XO's Wife was one of the Senior Medical Officers on board.

"Ensign Morgan, how long before we reach the Essex?"  He asked looking towards his XO, whose concern was clearly and expectedly obvious.

Lieutenant Commander John Brown was sitting in the First Officer Chair when they heard the Distress Call he knew what that meant it was the Essex he didn't have to be told the name he just knew.

Brown was reminded of the Message he got from Kristi and the communication they had only 6 Days earlier he ended it out of anger and he knew his wife had a bad feeling and he cared more about his duty to the Fleet then to break orders he was always about orders.His face was out of concern and anger of what the Cardassian's did
