Wow! What a thrill! I'm actually writing the Journal for Captain Picard!
At the moment, the Captain is resting in a darkened room. He has an awful migraine and needs to relax. He seems to get them quite a lot. I know he does whenever I visit.
The Academy has been a breeze this year, with me getting straight 'A's' as usual. Warp calculations, plasma relay conduits are so easy-peasy. I keep telling the trainers this, as I was on the Enterprise for so long.
Somehow, I suspect they are a little jealous, as are the fellow students. After all, they've been in the Academy, and haven't battled the Borg, encountered Q or saved the ship from near-destruction on a regular basis.
The trainers have suggested that I visit the Enterprise while it was in the area so I could see my mother. The students all agreed with them that it was a great idea, so here I am.
When I beamed aboard, it was plain that things wern't running right. I went straight to Engineering and improved the warp proficiency by 10%. Geordi suggested I go and try out the airlocks.
What did he mean by that?
Hold on, I'll have to stop the Journal for a few minutes. The 'red alert' light is flashing.
Back on. We'd just passed through a nebula that was threatening the safety of the ship. The Enterprise was within three seconds of exploding when I distributed some tachyon particles that saved everybody.
Captain Picard looked at me, mumbled something I couldn't hear and went back to his darkened room. His migraine seems to be getting worse.
I then went to the SickBay to chat to my Mom.
She shown me the new Holographic Doctor that has been installed.
"Wow, Mom!" I said, "He has the programs of all the top Starfleet doctors that there ever have been. They won't need you, before long!"
"Aren't you missing your Academy friends?" she asked.
"They all wanted me to visit the Enterprise" I said to her.
Mom mumbled something and said, "You need to continue your studying, Wesley. Go back, now!"
My Mom is so generous. Rather than having her son around, she wants me at the Academy. Not many mothers would think that. Captain Picard, who has just come out of the darkened room seemed to brighten up a little when I told him I was going back.
I'm glad he's feeling better.
This is Wesley signing off!
