Gee, it's really exciting here at the Academy. Not a day goes by without something happening that I am involved in.
I know the lecturers think highly of me as they usually mention my name whenever something important has occurred.
"It's that Wesley!" I overheard one of them say the other day.
How fantastic to be praised liked that by the Academics!
Last week, I managed to save the Academy from destruction by anti-matter in the Chemical lab at the last moment. Apparently, some student had left the bunsun burner on the previous day and it had ignited a chemical chain reaction.
It must have been someone in my class, as I happened to be in the chemical class at the same time. It was the day after when I heard my name was mentioned from one lecturer to the other, after I saved the Academy again.
Some students are so irresponsible!
Yesterday, I chatted with Mr Boothby, the Head Gardener at the Academy. He's been there SO many years, us students think he might have designed the buildings, as well as the garden.
"Now listen, son" he tells me, "You'll go far; I've said this to a lot of future Captains, like Picard, Sisko, Ransom and Janeway, when she could find her way here, to be careful of your enemies."
"But I don't have any enemies." I cheerfully say, "Everybody likes me; after all, I've done so many good things."
I take a rose off one of the plants and hum along as I leave. I hear Mr Boothby mumble something about a know-all.
Then I see Cadet Marlena Yates.
"Hi Marlena!" I say, "Look, I've got you this rose."
"Er..thanks, Wes" she replies, "What will Boothby say?"
"Oh, he won't mind; he's got lots of flowers. Besides, he and I are great friends."
Suddenly, I am informed that there is a call on the monitor from my mother on the Enterprise. Wow!
I say goodbye to Marlena, who rolls her eyes and is shaking her head. I wonder what that means? I'll have to ask her some day.
When I reach the Communications screen, I switch it on, ready to receive her call.
"Hi, Mom!" I say, "This is Wes!"
"Hello Wes, how are you?"
I tell her all the events that have been happening lately.
"The Academy seem to have a lot of disasters, Wes" she mentions.
"Yes." I reply, "But fortunately I've been at hand to save them all."
"That's true, but they hadn't used to have them happening before you joined them, Wes."
"Isn't that odd, Mom?"
"Yes, did you enjoy party the Enterprise had last week?."
"I sure did, Mom! I saw you kissing Captain Picard. Does that mean you two will get married and I can start calling him 'Dad'?"
"Err...I don't think so, Wes, after all, it was only at the end of the party. The two of us have a professional standing to consider."
"Aw, gee, Mom, get him to take you on a date. After all, no one else is interested in you."
"Thanks, Wes. I feel a lot better now!"
We say goodbye and I head out to find Marlena.
I see her kissing Cadet George Tsami. He used to be my best friend at the Academy.
What a pal(!)
