I don’t like mirrors.
They remind me. Of what – of who – I used to be. And how different I am from that person now.
My name is Sienn t’Lovok. I’m half Romulan, half Human, and 76% machinery. I’m an engineer on an independant freighter that I get the lovely job of holding together, the S. S. Seiklon Axel. The UFP doesn’t trust me, and neither does the Romulan Star Empire. Although sometimes I think it’s not so much my abilities render me untrustworthy, more that – I scare them. People are scared of what they don’t understand. I’ve learned to accept that.
