Overview of the Incident:
I had emerged from cryogenic storage on main level cryo a little bit before half way into the shift, as I had to speak to medical concerning grabbing some last minute records for an upcoming trip, and to take the next shuttle back to the Odin. I stopped to get some hot cider from the vending machine before I headed on, and then Dr. Gonzales came down the hall towards me, a bottle of tequila on hand. He asked me "what the fuck [ I ] was doing". Before I could even ask what he meant, he punched me in the face, and began making vicious and accusatory comments about my supposed intention to get a close personal friend killed, and smacked my drink out of my hand. I saw him shove the bottle of tequila into his labcoat after this, too. Due to the incredibly personal nature of the comments, and the fact I'd just been socked in the face, I let anger get the better of myself and I delivered a single punch back. It was at this point that the Za had come by in the hall, and they rushed in to grab me and tackle me to the ground, thinking I was the aggressor. While I was on the ground, Gonzales proceeded to stomp my head into the floor - several times - while the Za held me there, but they did release me to stop Gonzales as well. I don't blame them entirely, as I understand they were just trying to stop any fighting, but it certainly didn't help, neither did their threat to dislocate our legs. 

I got back up after this, and this is about when Neith and Dekhova arrived. Then Gonzales's verbal onslaught of extremely personal insults and accusations begun, most of them concerning my recently deceased boyfriend. Most of the statements I don't feel comfortable writing down in this report, but I'll gladly repeat them to an agent if necessary. To give a tamer example though, one of the insults was that I was a "sad, lonely, fucking moron", as well as the accusation that I was "literally the only thing [my deceased boyfriend] could fuck on Adhomai". We argued back and forth for some time, until I called him a hypocrite, to which he paused and responded "I'm going to break your nose.".

Once more, he came at me, punched me in the face, knocked me down, and began stomping my head into the floor once more, tearing a large gash across my head. I tried to get back up, and he hit me in the face, knocking me down again, and repeating the stomping motion, splitting my head open in several places. The Za stepped in again, grabbing him, and throwing him to the side. Dekhova also got involved and stood between us to try and block him from getting to me, but it wasn't completely effective. He pushed past both to continue assaulting me, and he even damaged one of my prosthetics which required repairs at robotics afterwards. I fully admit to striking back, only twice, at the end, but it felt more than fair at the time, all the personal insults, punching, and stomping against the ground considered. The fight ended when Dekhova grabbed and restrained him, and pulled him away. Security was called after this. I received treatment from Dekhova for my injuries. 

Submitted Evidence: N/A

Did you report it to a Head of Staff or a superior? If so, who? If not, why?: I didn't report it as security processed the both of us, and truthfully, I lacked faith that going to other command members would amount to much. That's not a slight to any of them personally, but Gonzales has a tendency for repeatedly avoiding punishment, and I was too demoralized and upset at the time to consider the matter. On reflection, I realised that not trying to do anything about it at all won't amount to any change, hence my filing of this report.

Actions taken: Security fined me for 50 credits, which I'll accept, as I did get physical as well, even if it was far, far less than he. I was also told he was fined, but I don't know any details beyond this. While security did fine us both, it doesn't feel sufficient for this kind of situation. Gonzales is a member of command staff, and is supposed to be a figure that leads by example and acts in a professional manner. Assaulting a visitor straight out of cryo, while presumably drunk on the job, isn't professional behaviour. He assaulted me to the point that I needed medical attention, and repairs from robotics, after an onslaught of deeply personal and upsetting accusations and insults. A fifty credit fine doesn't even approach what I think is an adequate response or punishment for such behaviour. 

Additional Notes: I'll be departing for Moghes with the IAC within a day to supply aid with the conflict currently taking place, and I'll be gone for some time. I only filed this because I inquired with an agent prior, and they said that due to the circumstances, I should be able to perform any interview through holocommunications or something along those lines. I apologise for any inconvenience this might cause, but the matter felt far too severe to just ignore and sweep under the rug.
