40. Sonny's farewell
. . . Medical Bay. . .
. . . 7:00 PM. . .
Sonny could feel lighter than he ever been.
His body felt like he could fly on out of the Enterprise-Z.
They were three hours away from civilization.
"Activate Emergency Medical Holoprogram II." Sonny said.
EMH II appeared with a device on his shoulder in the middle of the holopad room.
"What is your emergency?" EMH II asked.
"I have no emergency," Sonny said. "Goodbye. . . Charlie."
With a final glow overtaking his body our CMO transforms into a ball of pure powerful energy. His legs felt like they no longer existed. He felt a unusual urge to go out of the starship out into the open wild where life may be . . . more different. Full of endless possibilities. Full of new and incredible knowledge to hold. He took one last look back at his holoprogram friend then soared on in through the metal hide, seeing endless planets before his sight,galaxies, universes, and clouds that made strange shapes. He soared on through numerous levels of planes, lands, and folds in time.
Sonny knew so much yet so little about where he was going.
Now our little holoprogram friend was left alone virtually on the brink of tears.
They worked together for so long and this is how they depart.
"Goodbye . . . Doctor Degrias." EMH II said.
EMH II cried into his hands.
