::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.

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::

::watches patiently::

I don't see why not.

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

Intriguing.

::gingerly pries arm and hand loose, grasping jenay_paris beneath armpits and holding her at arms length::

::ignores resulting peal of giggles, observing skeptically::

Highly intriguing.

::stiffens, watching Ocampan head toward door out of corner of eye::

Where are you going?
