N-now, I'm er, not sure I should really being d-doing this, but I'm going to have a try. I tried before, and instead I w-wiped off all the records off W-worf's personal log when I did.
For all I know, this is probably not my log, but C-captain Picard's.
Deanna advised me in our last c-counselling session to express myself more and say what I think using the personal log. After that holodeck addiction incident that I h-had I while back, I'll try anything.
Deanna has been very patient with me. She tells me that I'm her biggest c-challenge, which doesn't sound like much of a compliment to me. I did have the good news from her that I've made enough p-progress to be let back into Engineering.
I know Geordi had to have a sedative after the last time I was there. Really, t-though, it was all an accident with the Warp Core.
It was also an accident afterwards when I visited him in Sickbay. My arm touched the bed-moving position, and he suddenly shot forward and landed on the floor.
"It's okay, Reg." he said at the time. What puzzled me is how did he know it was me visiting when he didn't have his Visor on and I hadn't said anything at the time.
A l-lucky guess, I suppose.
Anyway, it's off to Engineering. Geordi will be pleased to know he's got an extra pair of hands to help him there.
I enter Engineering. Five people see me, say "Hi Reg!" rather nervously and quickly leave the room.
"H-hello Geordi!" I call out to him, as he is working on a plasma cell.
He looks round, and gives me a glazed smile.
"W-what are you doing here, Reg?" he asks me, "I thought after that last incident, you had been relocated on the ship."
"T-that's true, Geordi." I reply, "But Counselor Troi thinks I am well enough to return to Engineering ."
"Err...ok, Reg," he says, "Just work on this plasma cell here. DON'T go ANYWHERE near that Warp Core. We don't want a repitition of that last incident, do we?"
"N-no, that was regrettable." I agree.
Geordi walks off and takes a couple of extra-strong sedatives.
"Before you go." I call out, "I've got some theories for a new h-high-powered enhanced Warp Drive. I can bring the plans down, and start to work on them r-right away if you like."
Geordi goes a little pale.
"Maybe some other time, Reg." he groans. He takes two more sedative tablets, and leaves.
I'm s-sure the Enterprise would be going at Warp 12 by now if they left it to me.
