After a few more moments, Archangel stood up, tapping her access code into the forcefield controls and leaving the cell. As soon as she was out of sight of the prisoner, she sank down to sit on the floor, trembling, her back against the wall and her head in her hands. Taking a deep, shaky breath, she raked her fingers through her hair. She stayed there for a minute, trying to calm herself down. She felt as if her heart was going to beat itself right out of her ribcage.
With what seemed to be a great effort, she pulled herself to her feet, making her way over to the comm panel on the wall.
=/\=Ensign T'Koris to Commander Hearn. I've finished interrogating the Romulan, sir. I can present you with a report at your convenience.=/\= As she waited for a reply, Archangel looked over at Safefta with a slightly puzzled expression.
"How can you not be affected by all this?" she asked. "By what we had to do to our own kind?"
