Personal Log, 26th March, 2100 Hours. Lieutenant Junior Grade Rhesha Th'Kharia.

I met with Counselor Savin today. Strangely enough I feel better than I have in a long time. I was able to come to a better understanding of my feelings about Rhemna, and his loss. Savin even was able to make me laugh, although I do not think that was his intention. It is still strange to me that other people did not grow up crawling through Jeffries tubes, and fixing starships. I've had engineering in my blood for as long as I can remember.

Rhemna died in part due to a repair that I made almost twenty years ago, but at the time, and even for years after, I could not have known the full impact of the repair that I made. Knowing that the phase compensator would have a half life was outside the realm of possibility for me at that age.

I will always feel the guilt of being responsible, but in part that responsibility, and therefore the guilt, is limited.

Personal Log, 29th March, 2100 Hours. Lieutenant Rhesha Th'Kharia.

Firstly, I have been promoted. Secondly, I am terrible at actually posting my personal logs when I record them.

I remember once during the academy, we had an assignment to record daily logs. Practice for our professional responsibilities. I turned in the assignment but was called to meet with the professor.


He thought that I had done it all at the same time and had simply changed the date stamps on the recordings. Fortunately for me my roommate was in the same class and was able to corroborate my story. Oddly enough, I had to do the whole thing over again, because I had recorded more than half of it in Andorian.


I am a full Lieutenant. I am the Chief of Engineering. I can remember Rhemna without the guilt stabbing me through the heart. Firebird has been exactly what I need.

End Personal Log.
