The Enterprise is having it's annual engine service at Starbase 10.
That's another headache for me to have on my mind. Geordi La Forge is so tetchy when this comes around every year. He's very possessive about what he calls 'his' engines.
While I sit at my desk having another aspirin, La Forge is pacing up and down.
"I don't see why they have to meddle with my engines, Captain. Throughout the year, I've tending them so they run on optimum efficiency. After all, we are the flagship of Starfleet; I've made sure all these months they work at their best with constant tests and changes myself"
My head starts to throb again; another aspirin.
"Geordi" I try to tell him, "Of course you do a great job, but it's Starfleet requirements that a ship has to be tested once a year, even one that has been handled as well as this one."
The head tester walks in.
"Sorry to say, Captain, but the engines are in bad shape."
La Forge's visor nearly falls off, as his face is transformed.
"The trouble is that the engines have been tweaked about with by someone too much. They were designed to work perfectly automatically. The engines didn't need to be constantly adjusted. Try not to let this happen again. I'll send my bill to Starfleet.
La Forge grumbles some sentence I can't hear and leaves the room.
No more aspirin needed, and I sit back with a smile.
