"Commander Ishi is not doing well."

Allison turned to where one of the Vulcan geologists, Dr. Stenak, was sitting next to the injured leader of their team. Like everyone else on the team, Allison Waverly was tired and hungry. They were just about out of food, having stretched the rations several days longer than they were intended for. "Worse than before?"

"I believe so," the Vulcan man replied. "I am not a healer, however."

Sighing, she picked up her tricorder and sidled up to Ishi. A quick scan revealed that the atmospheric chemist's lifesigns were weaker than before. "Shit," she said softly. "SHIT!"

The shouted curse grabbed Jaxon's attention. The Trill Lieutenant moved quickly to Waverly's side. "What's wrong?"

She silently handed the hydrologist her tricorder. He took the device and reviewed the readout. "Damn," he whispered.

Jaxon thought a moment. "We can't just sit here while he dies."

"What option do we have?" Waverly asked. "We don't know if it's safe to leave the caves. They might still be out there."

"What other choice do we have?"

Allison looked around at the civilian members of the team. With Ishi out of commission, she was in charge. And that meant that she was responsible for the safety of the team.

"For now, we wait."

Dear God, she said internally, please let someone find us.
