“Lieutenant Parson, are you feeling ill?” you intone via the speaker, ”If you are unwell then have Dr. Burr look at you.”
The young man chuckles, “I don’t think the doctor has a cure for what ails me, unless he has some sort of time serum.” At this Lt. Ivanova steps forward, a dark look in her eyes, but you interject and she freezes.
"/Lieutenant/, I understand that this is a trying situation for all of us. However, that can not and /will/ not detract from our professionalism here. We've survived the past 10,000 years, and I’m certainly not going to die now, nor let any of you.
"Now, if you're still feeling the after-effects of cryo then consider yourself in medical care until Dr. Burr releases you. Lieutenant Ivanova, Mister Tynes, is there a problem?"
“No sir.” Tynes replies, and Lt. Ivanova steps back before echoing him and beginning to don an EVA suit herself. Halfway through, however, she stops and looks up. “Actually sir, there is. I believe, technically, you *are* dead.”
Chuckles from the others, save Parson, dispel the tension. “Touché, Lieutenant. Well played.”
“Thank you, sir.” she replies, a tight grin on her features as she resumes preparing for zero-atmo conditions.
