::steps into empty observation lounge, choosing to leave lighting low::

::shifts baby weight to rest against shoulder, moving a hand up to offer support::

::moves to viewport, stroking thumb across soft back soothingly as Jenay stirs from sleep::

::closes eyes for a long moment, savoring each soft hiccup::

Shh...

::smiles slightly as fuss tapers off, shifting bundle in arms again, turning to offer better view::

::uses free hand to point::

Those are stars, Jenay.

I've seen all of them-and I promise you that the view is far more lovely from this distance.

Yes, stars.

There are planets out there as well-places with warmth and sunlight and all the water you could ever want-and there are other ships like this one, and smaller, and larger...

::laughs softly, smoothing stubborn strands of hair down::

There's a great deal out there, and I hope you'll understand all of it someday.

::pulls hand out of mouth to rub at eyes instead::

::yawns, moving it again to grasp Mah-Mee's sleeve::

::stares, repeating new word::

Taas.

::enters Enterprise's obs lounge silently, sweeping gaze to take in surroundings::

::settles focus on Ocampan near viewport, striding toward her::

You wished to see me?

Seven.

I hope I didn't disturb your sleep...

I find sleep in itself disturbing. You did not.

::folds hands behind back, tilting head to observe jenay_paris::

Is it not past her 'bed time'?

Yes, well, I didn't want to leave her alone with her father, he needs sleep...

::shakes head, bending to sit squirming baby on deck::

I somehow doubt she finds the change from routine disturbing either.

::straightens, glancing back to former drone::

I'm given to understand that you were very helpful during Tom's...pregnancy.

Thank you. It means a great deal to me.

You are...welcome.

::frowns, stepping back slightly as a saliva-coated fist drifts dangerously close::

However, I still find myself curious at your choice. Doctor Paris has the benefit of family linkage and experience. She would seem a far more likely candidate to entrust your child...and Commander Paris...to.

::laughs softly, shifting Jenay::

Linnis has her hands full elsewhere. I trust you with this, Seven.

::nods to baby, lifting a brow of own::

Would you like to hold her for a moment?

::watches patiently::

I don't see why not.

::glances to swriggling baby in arms, shifting again::

Jenay likes you already, and she won't be content until her curiosity has been slaked.
