“Good Morning, Sir.” Ensign Casparian said when she saw dr. Bashir sitting in the replicator restaurant. He was hanging above a big mug of steaming coffee, looking in a bad state.
“You are up early.” she said and sat down at his table with her breakfast.
“Up late.” Julian simply replied.
“Been working on your research all night, have you?” Romyana asked.
“Yes I have.” Bashir said and sipped his coffee.
“Have you made much progress?” the Ensign wanted to know.
“Yes, I have found several possibilities for theoretical and practical biomolecular replication. Now I am working on my conclusions, so it is almost ready.” dr. Bashir said with a deep enthusiasm which died away instantly when he stopped talking.
“And you?” he asked politely.
“Well,” the Ensign answered, “the revision of all three upper pylons will be finished today. I will have to make a complete report on that, and I still have to deliver the weekly engineering reports today, so I will have quite a long and busy day.”
