Song Amos 
Battlestar Orion — Deck 3 — Sickbay
Serving as the ship's primary care facility, the Medical Center is a rather large, single room structure that has the same load-bearing structures to the walls that the halls do, as well as the same heavy hatch. There is a desk at the entrance staffed by a nurse as well as a small locker for single dose drugs like aspirin. Beds are lined up along each wall with EKG's and hangers for IVs in case of triage. Large cabinets at the rear provide ready access to lifesaving medicines and gear, as well as a ready supply of defibrillators. Not far from the primary entrance is the Chief Medical Officer's office and on the other side is a small hatch to the recovery ward. Towards the rear is a sectioned-off examination area. Opposite the hatch to recovery is a sealed doorway leading down a hallway to the ship's morgue.

It looks to be a slow day in the sick bay, which is always a good thing. Doctor Song is here in his lab coat looking bright-eyed and bushy-faced as he carefully wraps up an EKG machine to go back into it's little closet. This seems like it would normally be a nurse's job, but of course Sick Bay has always been short-staffed, and he doesn't look like he minds all that much.

Amos ducks through the hatch into sickbay from the hallway outside. As is his habit he's dressed in his greens and doesn't seem to be bleeding or otherwise obviously injured. A quick word with the nurse on duty has him pointed in the direction of the nearest doctor though and he appraoches Song with purposeful stride. "Good day Captain," he greets, "do you perhaps have time for a quick word?"

Song lifts his eyebrows and smiles when the other Captain greets him, and his eyes scan over the man quickly, out of habit. He finishes putting away the machine and closes its cabinet before straightening up again and nodding. "I do, actually. How can I help you, Captain?"

"I was looking for some details on a project your department was running a while back," Amos starts, shifting into an relaxed parade rest as he speaks. "I don't know if you were involved or not but there was work being done to try and develop a method for identifying the human-form cylons. With the recent acts of saboutage I thought I it prudent to check up on progress. You wouldn't know if there have been any developments would you?"

Martin remains relatively relaxed, though the military-straight-back is such a part of his nature after all these years, he hardly knows he's doing it. "Yeah, I remember that project. I wasn't a primary on it, so I'm not totally sure where we are on that. Although it sounds like more of that work might be coming my way. But we'll definitely let the department heads know when we get anything actionable."

Nodding slowly as his fellow Captain talks, Amos listens to the reply. "Thank you," he replies once the situation is explained, "I know I don't need to re-state how important such a development would be to fleet security. If, in the course of the work, there turns out to be anything to Corp can do to help then do please let me know forthwith."

"I understand completely," Song says quietly. "The importance has not been lost on me. I'll be reviewing the project data over the next few days, and do everything I can to get us up to speed." Song rubs at his beard thoughtfully, and nods to himself before looking up again. "Is there anything else I can help you with?"

Amos seems content with that answer and nods his understanding. "I think that's all Captain," he replies after a moment's thought, "well, that and keep patching my lads for me. Looks like we'll be in action again in a few days, but we'll try not to come back and bleed all over your sickbay."

Song grins and nods. "With any luck, none of them will be in need of our services," he says with a smirk. "Good luck, Captain."
