Here's the story scoop: Laina is one of the last surviving humans after earth was destroyed when the humans tried to kill the cyborgs they'd created when the cyborgs rebelled and escaped. Now the Cyborgs, with permission of the Galactic High Council have free rein to pursue the last remnants of the human race and do with them as they see fit. Rorik, a cyborg lieutenant stumbles upon Laina hiding in a ship and he captures her, thinking to get information about the whereabouts of other humans. But when the cyborg doctor on Rorik's ship runs tests on Laina, a genetic anomaly in her hand raises questions and he suddenly wonders if Laina might hold the key to the survival of the cyborg race. Can he learn to trust and love his sworn enemy if it means he might save his people?
Last week we left off with Rorik having knocked Laina out with his phaser and he's brought her on board the cyborg ship the Orion and taken her to the sick bay. Rorik and Valerius want her to take off her clothes.
“Yes, removing your clothes will help my scanners penetrate your body so I can see more clearly.”
“Do I have to?” She realized grudgingly, that she wasn’t above begging.
The blond haired cyborg made a low growling noise in the back of his throat that made her squeeze the jacket about her throat even tighter. His hands shot out, prying her own hands from her collar and he tore the jacket open, eyes raking her body savagely.
“Um, Rorik. What are you doing?” the doctor asked.
“It’s obvious she’s hiding a weapon on her person."
