Today at Starbase 45, I say hello to the latest Captain in Starfleet: Kathryn Janeway. I take her aboard the Enterprise to show her around.
As I turn round, she has disappeared.
It takes me a few minutes to find her again. She says she turned the wrong way and got lost.
We talk over a drink of Earl Grey tea; Janeway tells me that though she has been very headstrong in her career, she does have a tendancy to get lost very easily.
"I lose my bearings very easily, and have never been able to read maps. It was my weakest subject at the Academy."
"Have you had a posting, yet, Captain?" I ask her.
"Yes, it's the USS Voyager, which I'll be heading to as soon as I finish chatting to you."
We talk about Starfleet gossip for a while and eventually head back.
"Can you show me just where the transporters are, Captain Picard? I haven't a clue where anything is."
I pity the crew of Voyager. They are likely to get lost VERY quickly with her at the helm.
