Spock made a miscalculation today. It wasn't serious, and he caught it right away, but the point is, he made it. I've been thinking Bones looked haggard lately, but I think I've been spending so much time watching him that I've missed the fact that something is going on with Spock. Now, it's staring me in the face, and it's obvious that it's all related.

I'm going to ask both of them about it today. I know about the two of them, so of course I know it's personal, but now I can officially say it's interfering with the operations of the ship. Dammit, I need my First Officer, and my CMO at 100%. I'll talk to them individually - I don't want to force some kind of confrontation. But God knows I can't have Spock making miscalculations when it matters, and Bones looks like he should be in a bed in Sickbay, not trying to help other patients. But if I force him to take time off, I don't think he'll ever forgive me. I may need to at least make that threat today. If it's resolved, and I see him looking better after a couple of days, I'll let it go. If not, I'm going to have to get Geoff to look him over, and maybe force him to rest for a week or so.

As for Spock, it's hard to reprimand him for a single slip-up. But he knows as well as I do that it's unusual. If I know him, he'll come to me with an explanation before I even have to ask.

Aaaand there it is, my door just beeped. I'll get this sorted out soon enough.
