I get to the Bridge of the 23rd Century Enterprise after being summoned.
I am still trapped in the body of Captain James T Kirk.
"Klingons are approaching, Sir" Mr Sulu informs me.
"Perhaps we ought to talk to them and work on a peaceful resolve." I suggest.
McCoy laughs out loud.
"That is not logical, Captain." Spock tells me, "The Klingons are a violent race, and have always wanted to destroy the Enterprise and the Federation."
"We are being hailed." Uhura tells me.
The viewscreen comes on.
A man with a slightly aggressive face comes on.
"Captain Kirk, you will surrender the Enterprise over to the Klingon Empire or be destroyed"
"Is he supposed to be a Klingon?" I whisper to Spock, "He looks nothing like a Klingon!"
"Um, yes, he is, Captain, the Klingons don't like to speak of the affliction that has swept the Empire over the last couple of years. It shames them, and they hope it will be eradicated soon. It's called Cheapmakeuponitis."
I sit down in the chair and issue instructions.
"Evasive Manouvre Delta Four, Mr Scott" I say.
Scotty looks puzzled.
"I dinna ken yer meaning, Cap'n"
I forgot that we are not on the Enterprise D.
Swiftly I get up, ask Mr Chekov to move, and take control of the helm. I fly at top speed towards a nearby planet, with the Klingon ship following. Everyone looks panic stricken.
"This is not logical." states Mr Spock.
"I'm phoning home. " screams Uhura.
"Have you gone mad, Jim?" shouts McCoy.
At the very last moment, I pull the Enterprise away from the planet's atmosphere.
"Yae cannae break the laws o' physics...och, ma engines!" groans Scotty.
The Klingon ship carries on into the planet's atmosphere and explodes.
"Is that how problems are solved in the 24th Century, Captain?" Spock quietly asks me.
Then they all suddenly freeze.
"Well done, Jean-Luc" a familiar voice whispers to me.
"So it's you, Q, that are responsible for bringing me here?"
"Of course, Jean-Luc. I just wanted to see how you would react with a different starship in an earlier Century. You did very well."
"What about the timeline?" I protest.
"Oh, these people will forget everything that happened, including Kirk, when I bring him back here. Bye for now, Jean-Luc..."
Suddenly, I am back on the Bridge of the Enterprise D. Everyone is looking at me.
"Are you all right, Captain?" Riker asks.
"You seem very confused." says Deanna."I thought you said something odd to me a little earlier. It must be my hearing."
Beverly comes on the Bridge. She quietly talks to me.
"Jean-Luc, you'll really have to switch your Com badge off in the future next time you visit the SickBay."
I wonder what she means by that?
