After a visit from Admiral Nbechev, who has just been promoted, we are having a Casual Day on the Enterprise. The reason for this is he is trying to create an impression on Starfleet, with his new 'laid-back' technique.
If we all adopt his approach, the Borg will have no trouble.
With a groan, I instruct the senior staff that they must come in whatever they want the next day.
"Does that mean you will be as well, Sir?" asks Riker, with a smirk, knowing what the answer will be.
"Er, yes, Number One."
The next day, there we all are on the bridge, looking like we are ready to shop in the Starfleet Mall.
Riker has his Canada baseball shirt on with long baggy trousers and a baseball cap.
Worf is in full Klingon battle outfit, and looks as if he's ready to beat up someone. He looks disgustedly at the others.
"It is honourable to wear a uniform to fight in. It is a good day to die."
Why does he always say that?
Deanna Troi has a skimpy mini skirt and her hair is all in weird Betazoid fashion and looks like someone from the 1960's on Earth. I'm having a difficult job in getting Riker's attention. His mind seems to be wandering.
Data has his Sherlock Holmes outfit on. He has a pipe in his pocket, and Data is looking at it fondly.
I hear the word. "Elementary" from his lips.
If he lights that, we'll get soaked in water from the heat alarms and the 'red alert' will go on.
La Forge has a multi coloured shirt and shorts on, as if he is ready to go on the best beach in Brazil. He has no shoes on.
Beverly has hipster trousers with a short top, showing six inches of midriff and a pierced belly button.
I have tried to retain a slight sense of normality with a tuxedo suit, looking like Humphrey Bogart in 'Casablanca', although this may have been a mistake.
Admiral Nbechev has since been removed from office. The reason for this is when another Starfleet vessel encountered us, they didn't believe we were the crew, and thought we had stolen the Enterprise. We were all thrown in the brig, and it was only after DNA testing we were released.
Nbechev is now wearing a uniform of his own. It's a striped one while at the penal colony.
