{Deck 1-Bridge}

O'Connell exited the Lift onto the Bridge when Lieutenant Zebot approached him "Commander I think we need to talk about the Settlers....there's something you should be aware of" she stated.

"Ok....let's go into the Conference Lounge and you can fill me in" Jamie answered so the two left the Bridge.

{Conference Lounge}

As they entered the Lounge Jamie said "Lieutenant, please have a seat" as the two sat and looking at Katlyn "So what's this all about with the Settlers."

Katlyn took a deep breathe then explained "When I was on the surface looking around the other day I saw one of the Settlers pick up a rather large boulder and move it out of his way."

"So what's so unusual about moving a stone around" Jamie asked not sure where she was going with this.

"No wasn't just a big was a boulder...a big one" Katlyn explained "I'm Regalian and I would have had trouble picking it up....and he didn't seem the strain or break a sweat moving it."

O'Connell sat for a few moments deep in thought "So what you're telling me....this guy is as strong as you are and he moved something that you would have trouble doing" he replied.

"Yes Commander....and he may even be stronger than I am. When I confronted him about it he told me that he is an 'enhanced humanoid'.....matter of fact he said they all are and that's why thy moved to Astra to avoid persecution from their own people" Kat concluded.

By this time Jamie was a little confused "So your telling me this for what reason exactly" he asked.

Well the Settler asked me to keep it to myself but in light of the other Settler being beamed to Sickbay I thought you should be made aware of it.....that's why I said something" Katlyn explained.

"Hmmm....perhaps your right" he said while thinking to himself "You know the more I think about this....something doesn't add up. Why would they feel the need to get away from their own people."

"I'm not really sure other than some sort of religious persecution I guess" Kat replied.

Jamie thought for a moment "Lieutenant go back down to the surface and see if this guy will talk some more to you about this" he said "See what you can find out how or why they became enhanced since you have established a connection to this Settler."

" you want me to use 'my feminine ways'" she replied with a chuckle.

Jamie just smiled "Not exactly...but you decide" he replied with a smile "And let me know what you find out."

"As you wish Commander" Katlyn said with a smile then she turned to leave for the surface.
