I know where I left it.
So where did the Enterprise go?
We all went off to the pleasure planet of Rigel IV. After all, as Geordi says, we can always have a lot of fun there.
The trouble is, he tends to get locked up for enjoying himself too much.
The Enterprise was put in standard orbit, and the entire crew went down for some fun and frivolity.
This could have been a mistake; it's wise leaving someone there, but how could I leave anyone on the ship while we were having a good time? Even Data wanted to come along.
Anyway, there we are, all ready to beam up automatically.
Nothing to beam up to.
It was fortunate that the automatic transporter spotted this, otherwise we would have been in airless space.
"Are you sure you left it there, Captain?" asks Riker.
"There is a Ferengi ship in orbit, Captain. No lifesigns." says Data, looking at his tricorder.
We beam up and see that everyone has gone.
Geordi looks at the ship's records.
"It looks like they all beamed aboard the Enterprise and had that instead."
We follow the warp trail and get to the Enterprise, which is returning back.
When beaming aboard, we find out that the two Ferengi are in the Brig.
A message comes in from Sickbay.
It's the holographic doctor.
"I hope you'll take a little more notice of me, Captain." he says in that irritating tone of his, "I could see they had put a couple of wires together and were on their way with the Enterprise. With my superior knowledge, I was able to beam the two of them directly into the Brig. Then I made a course correction and headed back."
"Er...well done, Doctor."
"The Holographic Union of Doctors will hear of this, of course, Captain. I'm sure us holograms will get equal recognition and pay from now on. "
It looks like we have a new member of the crew.
