Translations - Part 1 (RP Log)
- Officer's Wardroom [Deep Space 9]
- Cardassian design leaves this room somewhat dark and foreboding, with a long table stretched down the center. A viewscreen lies at each end, as well as a large sector map display on the wall.
Viewpanel: ** Sending request for communication to Captain Kainon.
Viewpanel activates and displays Captain's Ready Room [USS Excalibur NCC-90003].
Viewpanel: Kainon is sat at his desk, sipping coffee and looking about varying PADDs. He looks up, "Yes, Doctor. What can I do for you?"
"I'm looking for information regarding my- Ben's death." Kailyn replies quietly and holds her left arm as an action of comfort.
Viewpanel: Kainon sets the PADD down and removes his glasses. He settles back on the chair and gives a slow nod, "I see. I only have limited information to give, but I can do my best."
Pryus-Talbot nods gently, "Thank you Essa, I appreciate anything you can tell me." She answers shifting on her feet.
Viewpanel: Kainon locks his fingers together as he looks into the screen. "Well, what would you like to know? I only saw him for a couple minutes before everything happened."
Pryus-Talbot nods gently, "That's what I wanted to know. He beamed onto a ship, the Bountiful Chest is that when you saw him?" She asks her words quiet and calm for the moment, her face tired and stoic.
Viewpanel: Kainon nods a couple times. "Yes. I was beamed onto that ship and he came on seconds after I did. He wasn't making sense when he got there. Accused me of hiding, then when I asked what I was doing there, he just repeated the question. He was armed with a knife, but nothing else. After he wouldn't respond to why I was there or taken off my ship, he beamed back to DS9."
Pryus-Talbot moves her hand from her arm and pinches her brow, she begins talking to herself, "This was hours after his physical ... the imbalance wasn't strong enough to cause something like this." She paces slightly and becomes more expressive with her hands. Nothing made sense, "When you all returned from rescuing Astor-Cross and I saw him - briefly, how was he?" She turns back to the viewpanel and stops moving.
Viewpanel: Kainon raises his brow while she goes through the history. "He was fine when we got back. Hell, he never came off the ship while it was docked. Other than that, nothing was out of the normal as far as he was concerned. What are you talking about an imbalance?"
"He requested a physical whilst I was on duty, being his spouse I couldn't fill his request so Senka did. There was a slight neurochemical imbalance present but he refused treatment, it wasn't strong enough for to cause something like a psychotic episode." Kailyn explains as her fingers tap her upper lip gently, "Senka's autopsy reports no change in that. Something happened in that period between when he left me and when he beamed aboard. He said something to me..." She tries to remember what the exact words where.
Viewpanel: "Well that certainly changes things." The Bajoran doesn't like hearing that. "It's a bit discomforting to know that he could have been treated but was seemingly too bullheaded to do so. What was it that he said before all this happened?"
Pryus-Talbot returns to pacing as she repeats words out loud "To tout com-pren-dre, c'est tout pard-onn-er. What language is that?" She manages after a moments thought, "He kept saying how we were all that mattered, but he was exclusive of himself ... I don't understand." She sighs and runs her fingers through her hair out of frustration.
Viewpanel: Kainon raises a brow. "If I remember my Terran languages, it's French. But I only know what they sound like, not what they mean. Have you tried to run it through a translator?"
"Computer, what is the translation from French for 'Tout comprendre, c'est tout pardonner'?" Kailyn asks aloud waiting for a response, a chime sounds, "The standard translation for 'Tout comprendre, c'est tout pardonner' is 'if you are aware of all the circumstances, you will forgive everything.'" The computer repeats back. The betazoids eyes widen, he had said this to her as they stood in the very same spot.
Viewpanel: Kainon narrows his eyes as he looks into the viewer. "The only thing that makes sense from all that is that he knew he was going out of his mind. Otherwise, none of it makes sense."
Pryus-Talbot holds her head to her hands, "Essa, none of this makes sense and no one else seems to care about it. I don't know what to do." She pleads to the man Ben had asked to be his bestman.
Viewpanel: Kainon leans forward on the desk. "And I don't know what to do. I care, and I'd like to have all the answers, but I'm not in the position anymore to get the answers. Had I still been where I was, then I'd be all over it. There are people that will get the answers. "
Viewpanel: Kainon says, "I'll end with this. Give all this information to the Inspector General's office. They will be able to do a lot more with it than I ever will." The console on his desk goes off and the Bajoran finishes, "The answers are around. Just don't give up."
You say, "Thank you Essa, thank you."
Viewpanel: Kainon nods a gives a warm grin. "No problem at all. I'll talk with you soon."
Viewpanel blinks and Captain's Ready Room [USS Excalibur NCC-90003] disappears.
