57 - Zach Eastman, Hana Gable
- MD 4, 1052
- While shopping for a present Zach spots the familiar, and attractive, backside of Hana Gable. Accepting an invitation to go jogging with her in the Arboretum they head up to his Quarters to get changed into more appropriate clothing. While Zach is getting changed Hana makes a point of having a look through some of his stuff, telling him that she's looking for evidence of naked Orions. Instead she only finds a couple of memory cards and a holonet isolinear chip labelled 'Horny Housewives of Risa.' Following the prerequisite ribbing over said holonet chip she lays down the rules that Zach had better run beside her and not use this as an excuse to watch her arse in action. After his sound defeat Hana challenges Zach into kissing it which he, somewhat awkwardly, accepts to prove he's as brave as her.
58 - Rexus Spokar, Hana Gable
- MD 4, 1052
- Having misplaced his phaser at some point, Rexus heads into his Quarters to search for it when he gets jumped by Hana. Re-enacting part of their fight on Harbinger she pins him to the ground where he finally realises who it is. After she fills him in on what she's been doing since her transfer she gives him a hug and tells him how good it is to see him again, which prompts Rexus to suggest they do something with the other Cadets. Instead Hana convinces him to go out with her by himself after she retrieves her clothes from Zach's.
59 - Hana Gable, Rexus Spokar
- MD 5, 0035
- Rexus meeds up with Hana at his favourite bar, Crazy Ei8hts, and almost straight away things start to get awkward between them. Despite pointing out that he has a girlfriend, Hana is determined to try and get into his pants. A plan that only intensifies with each drink. Finally, on the dance floor, things get heated and Hana decides to go back and see Zach. Trying to be responsible Rexus offers to take her since she doesn't seem capable of getting there alone.
60 - Zach Eastman, Hana Gable
- MD 5, 0132
- Woken by a loud noise at his door Zach is surprised to find Hana outside in quite a state. Helping her inside he tries to reassure her that what happened with Rexus was more about him than her. Zach soon finds himself in an awkward situation because he doesn't want her to feel rejected again so, worrying about where things might lead, he lies about not having a water shower and then offers to get her some water and aspirin to help with the headache and dehydration. Unfortunately Hana finds the shower and after embarrassing Zach a little when he admits to the lie, she tries to sober up under the cool water. In the meantime Zach replicates some fresh clothes and leaves them by the door.
Stepping passed the clothes, Hana touches Zach lightly on the back and thanks him for his help. When his reaction hurts her feelings Zach finds himself wanting nothing more than to comfort her. His clumsy kiss has the desired effect and Hana starts responding by showing him how it's done. Leading him to the bed she soon shows him a few other things as well.

63 - Hana Gable, Zachary Eastman
- MD 5, 0245
- Waking to find his face buried in Hana's cleavage Zach can't help but feel like the day can only get better. A few minutes later though he's treated to a belch that smells like a Klingon mess hall. Deciding that he should check that her hangover wasn't too bad Zach gently wakes Hana up and she comes to the realisation of what happened between them. Regretting the fact that she hadn't been in a good state, despite not totally regretting the outcome, she tries her best in her hungover state to assure Zach that she had enjoyed herself but still makes a hasty retreat after he returns with some medication to help her feel somewhat better.

67 - S. R. Wesson, Rexus Spokar, Kittiana Novus
- MD 4, 1240

- On a call out for Security and Medical, both Rexus and Zach arrive at a scene where a man is suffering from tachicardic arrythmia after a mugging. Trying his best to ignore Rexus as best he could, Zach takes care of the man and has him transported to Sickbay, for proper treatment, before trying to make a hasty retreat. His attempt is foiled though when Security expect him to come and answer some questions which gives Rexus an opportunity to try goading the Medical Cadet into a confrontation in the Turbolift.
70 - Zachary Eastman, Maya Takagi
- MD 5, 1201
- Following his run in with Rexus a rather pissed off Zach heads to see Maya to ask for help, either in a teaching or counselling capacity, to work on some of his problems.

He soon sets his sights on an old flame; Chief Medical Officer Cassiopeia Yale. Determined to have what he once failed to take in the past, Rexus has Cassi brought to him on his flagship where he tries to force himself on her.

- Jon'a reunites with the reporter, Alys Snowden, who interviewed him not long ago on Ba'ku.

In a panic at the sudden darkness, Cassi knocks into Rexus and then they get tangled up and fall onto the floor. Right at that moment the door opens and T'vei and Violet find themselves witnessing a confusing scene. Thinking the worst, Violet worries that Rexus tried to take advantage of Cassi and rushes to her aid. Once the truth is revealed she feels a little foolish for jumping to conclusions and then scolds Rexus for altering his room's systems so much that something like this could happen.
The women then admit that they have Rexus' PADD and, in the process of proving it belongs to Rexus, T'vei accidentally links it to the holographic system and the five of them are subjected to one of Rexus' extracurricular (pornographic) videos.
84 - Jon'a Despard, Alys Snowden
- Dream Sequence - MD 4, 2312

- MD 4, 1920
- The drinking competition continues with only a slight interruption as the conversation switches to Rebecca or Bride of Frankenstein as John likes to call her. This topic quickly draws the attention of Wesson who joins the trio to lament about his own encounter with the Security Observer. They shortly find themselves discussing Hide's recent love life before Cassi reveals that she's an old hat when it comes to drinking, much to John's surprise. But that doesn't slow down their drinking competition in the slightest.
86 - Cassiopeia Yale, John Reynolds
- MD 4
- Stumbling back to Cassi's Quarters the pair make small talk before John tucks Cassi in on the couch. Without thinking he leans forward to kiss her on the forehead, something he used to do when his sister was sick. Unfortunately this is just as Cassi starts moving around, causing the kiss to go way off course. Equally embarrassed by the accidental lip locking they try to take the blame from the other until their focus shifts to how they're going to deal with it. John does his best to convince Cassi that it was an accident and therefore they hadn't done anything wrong, which Sarah would understand, and the end up falling asleep on the couch together.

88 - Rexus Spokar, S. R. Wesson
- MD 5, 1605
- Wesson starts Rexus off on his first boxing lesson, which isn't much more than jabbing at pads. As he makes sure the cadet is keeping his guard up, Wesson and Rexus talk about their upbringings and their lives in Starfleet. Male bonding via sports and smacking things around.

The Bajoran had originally planned to catch up with her after her shift but had missed his chance so instead tracked her down to her Quarters.

Once he locates the Sanitation Engineer Extraordinare, he is led through the confusing maze that makes up the bowels of the station until they arrive at the crime scene. It is clear to John that there were at least three people involved, but further investigation is required to learn their identities.
104 - Rexus Spokar, Vyrs

106 - Cassiopeia Yale, Rexus Spokar
- MD 5, 2125
- Looking through her sketch book Cassi tries to make sense of the last couple of days. Finally she decides that it would be a good idea to check on Rexus and make sure that he's alright. Rexus answers the door and promptly receives an apology for what happened. He invites Cassi inside but almost instantly confronts her with questions about her relationship with John, worried that the holographic boat ride they had all gone on might be the cause.
