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 are assessing Laina for injuries.
“I would like to do a full medical scan for any other injuries or conditions. Would you remove your clothes for me?” The cyborg doctor asked, drawing her attention away from the intimidating cyborg that was scowling down at her. The doctor’s face held a softness, an understanding of humanity reflected in his gaze. It was probably left over from his medical background where doctors were trained to believe in healing and helping above all things.
“Take my clothes off?” She clamped her hands around the collar of her jacket, closing it tight around her throat. She knew they could easily overpower her and remove her clothing, but she wasn’t going to just give in.
