Death, Through Someone Else's Eyes

I don’t know how to say this – this [posting] thing is Lieutenant Archer’s job, not mine – so I’ll just shoot from the hip. My name is Lieutenant (JG) Tessa Kensington. I am one of Lieutenant Archer’s staff here in the Public Affairs Office. Lieutenant Archer -- Sam -- is currently in the Enterprise hospital after experiencing another vivid dream.

Sam woke up in his quarters late this morning, and put in an emergency call to the hospital deck. He claimed that, while he was sleeping, he experienced a few days through the eyes of a social worker named, Edith, in 1930s New York City on Earth. He says he woke up in terror after experiencing her fall down the stairs, in her apartment building, and break her neck. When this Edith character died, he woke up suddenly, as if from a nightmare. He claims the whole experience was extremely real to him – including the fall.

I am happy to report, though, with a few hours of care, Sam is doing fine now. He is in the care of our ship’s doctors and psychologists, and they’ve got things under control. Sam has been diagnosed with mild mental and emotional trauma, and has been relieved of duty until Friday. He asked me to share this update in his stead, and handle any questions you might have.

-Lieutenant (JG) Tessa Kensington
