Birthday Meeting



As Jean-Luc has gone in the holodeck for a couple of hours to practice on his horseriding skills, I've convened a special meeting of the senior staff to try and solve a problem we are all having.

What are we going to get Jean-Luc for his birthday on the 14th?

"He's such a difficult person to get a present for." says Riker, "The Captain isn't satisfied with replicated items. He wants the real thing. That genuine First Edition Shakespeare book was a lot of trouble to obtain. What's worse, I had to negotiate with a Ferengi."

"Would any of you like to put some suggestions forward, and we'll consider them?" I tell them all.

Data looks blank.

Geordi looks about to say something, then changes his mind.

"Would the Captain like an ancient weapon?" suggests Worf, "They can look very honourable. The ones in my quarters certainly do."

"I agree, they do." agrees Deanna, then suddenly says, "...I er...mean I'm sure they do."

Her face is slightly reddened.

"I don't think that's what the Captain exactly likes." I tell them, "After all, weaponry has never been something he's fond of."

"How about a weekend pass to Riga IV, the pleasure planet?" suggests Geordi, "he can have all sorts of fun there."

"He would never like that!" I quickly tell him.

I'm not having Jean-Luc gallivanting around that planet!

"What about a surprise party?" Deanna declares, "We could pretend we have forgotten his birthday, and suddenly get him into Ten Forward, and all shout 'SURPRISE!'"

"I like the sound of that" I mention.

"Do you think the Captain likes surprises?" asks Riker.

"Well, no he won't, but I'm sure as soon as it gets under way, he'll enjoy it."

"Why is it people want to surprise a person on a birthday?" inquires a puzzled Data, "Surely they already know what day it is?"

"Yes, Data." says Deanna, "But it's all part of the fun.

Data still looks puzzled, as we leave the room, and get ready to organise the surprise occasion on the 14th.

Jean-Luc... your birthday is about to start.

It would seem difficult giving presents when everything one needs is available by replicator.

I imagine all Captain Picard wants is a tall ship and a star to steer her by.

Jabafatboy said...

get him a wig!!!

I wanna see a big ole afro on top of that head.

natasha said...

:O He can come out for dinner with my friends and I ... We're going out for MY birthday! :D

Trinity13 said...

Happy early birthday Capt!!!

Btw Bev, I'm sure he'll love a big ol' kiss from you for his bday!

FRIDAY'S CHILD said...

It seems quite difficult to suggest on what to give him for his birthday as even you, his companions find it difficult to do so, what more someone who doesn't know him personally.

I'll suggest just a very big greeting to him on his birthday.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY CAPT.

Professor Xavier said...

Ooh, a party! Wait, it's on board the Enterprise? Er, I some laundry I just have to do. Sorry.

Jaime H. said...

Bonne anniversaire, Captaine!!

You know, I have a friend who serves as a science officer on the Enterprise. She hadn't yet transfered over in time to witness your party last year, but she's promised me a full report for this one.

I'm going away this weekend, but I'll check my inbox, and if she sends anything, I'll post it on my blog.

Viamarie said...

Advance birthday greetings to the captain! I have been reading your posts for the past weeks through Friday's Child & Unicorn Child. A very intellectual site. Plan to include you in my network. Hope you don't mind.:)

Ciera said...

hmmm.....when Deanna said that the surprise was all 'part of the fun' I had a sudden flashback to Generations when Crusher said the same thing and ended up getting tossed over the side of the boat!

sounds like it will be a fun party!!!!! ;-)

Nic said...

I'm sure that your birthday will be one to remember! I can't wait to hear the story!

Happy birthday my dear friend. May you be especially blessed today and may your special day be filled with the warmth of good friends and the love of family! :)

Jana said...

I can imagine Jean-Luc is hard to buy for!

Happy birthday!

dddragon said...

How about a promise that Wesley won't come back on board?

Happy Birthday Captain!

mar said...

Captain, Michele sent me to wish you the happiest of birthdays. Only 2 1/2 hours away according to my time schedule. Have a great one!

Shelley said...

Oh Please. Everyone knows Deanna and Worf are together. They need to cut the blushing crap like we don't know she "beams" into his quarters whenever she pleases!

I'm skeert for you. Who knows what they're planning....whatever it is, it will be quite memorable I'm sure. Can't wait to find out!

Have a great birthday, and I am so glad to have gotten to know you over the past few months in bloggerland. Have a great day, and please spike that Earl Grey (hot), will ya??!!!

Cheers!
