Passing On


Passing On

Mimi Pavilion, MD

Amanda Davis, PhD


There are times when Amanda can cope and times when she can not cope.  Counselor Amanda Davis stood at the door to Dr Pavilion’s quarters wondering if she could push past her personal feelings and help her dear friend Mimi deal with the death of her bond mate, her husband, the person she had chosen for life.  He loved her dearly, but SubCommander Torate tr’Jeth Dabi, was also a warrior. As dedicated to his people as he was to her, he left Aegis to rebuild the Empire after the devastation of ch'Rihan in 2387.*  


Then came the destruction of the Breen.**  Many who were no longer Breen slaves formed the Alien Alliance that not only threatened the Romulan Star Empire, it threatened to overtake the Joint Allied Powers….


“If it’s not one thing, it’s another,” thought Amanda.  “And Torate, as bold and brave as he was, gave his life to save his captain. Oh, Mimi.” 


She sighed quietly, then took a deep breath to regain her composure before pressing the chime on Mimi’s door.


“Enter,” Mimi said, as she sat at her desk. 


Amanda stepped in quietly.  “Hello, Mimi,” she said in a more professional manner.  “How are you?”


She looks at Amanda and sighs, “Not well, as expected. How can one deal with the loss of a spouse?”


“With difficulty, Mimi," she replied quietly and sincerely.  "You will have times when you remember him fondly, maybe even smile at some of the things he did.  Then you’ll have times when you can’t stop crying..”


“I know,” Mimi replied; “it’s just the biggest adjustment that I’ve… I’m going through, since being assigned to Aegis.”


Amanda pulled up a chair and waited for her to continue. And if she wasn’t going to continue, she would be Mimi’s friendly presence, sitting by her side, mourning with her.


“You know Torate and I had been married for over a year. Thing is he wanted children to carry on the family name. Now there’s going to be a big empty house and no children.”


Amanda pressed through her sadness, knowing how important that is in the Rihan culture.  “Yes, that is very important, not only to you, but to Torate. If you can, try thinking of it this way,  Mimi. He is in Vorta Vor... watching you, and knowing how you feel.  Try to think of his passing as a transformation from one world to another. Try to think of him as being here next to you, but in a different form. Does that make sense?"


Mimi nodded. “It does,” she replied.



*In the Aegis timeline, ch’Rihan was not destroyed.  At the request of the crew, the exploding star’s cosmic rays devastated ch’Rihan and rendered it uninhabitable for hundreds of years. 

**In their attempt to create a subspace attack corridor, the Breen trapped themselves in subspace.
