Deanna Troi: Borg Queen (Part Two)
"What are we going to do, Captain?" I ask the Cappy as he takes me down to SickBay, "The Borg are going to invade in a few minutes, and that awful Borg Queen replica of myself is going to assimilate us all!"
"Don't panic, Deanna," he says, "We are going to have to dress you up a little."
I'm worried here, as it looks like I've got some work with me to do. How I wish I was shopping at the Starfleet Mall with Bev right now.
The Cappy gets me to SickBay; he goes over to Bev and whispers to her; she looks at me. Somehow I don't think they were talking about a date with each other.
"Come here, Deanna," says Bev, "This won't take long"
After a couple of minutes, Bev looks at the Cappy and nods.
I look in the mirror.
"I look just like that awful Queen" I shriek.
"Yes" says the Cappy, "Now I'll tell you what to do; we need one volunteer for you to take over to the Cube."
"I'll go!" pipes up a female voice.
It's the awful Jadzia Dax.
"I'll be more than happy to take on Deanna Troi...I mean the Borg Queen" she proudly tells the Cappy.
"And Counselor", he whispers, "We would like Lieutenant Dax back as well; don't leave her there."
What a pity.
I get instructed on the full mission, which makes me ever longful for the Ferengi Fishnets shop and the Betazoid Beauty Store.
"Two drones are on the Bridge!" shouts Will over the Com.
Dax and I run up to the Bridge with heavy disruptors and enter, The drones turn round and look puzzled.
"You will not assimilate these people, but will come back to the Cube with myself and this Trill woman." I tell them.
Will looks amazed, but has a smile on his face; I'm not surprised while I'm wearing this outfit.
Jadzia Dax & I beam back with the drones. I am allowed easy access around the Cube because of who I am. We go to the Central Complex where we see the Borg Queen.
"Well, well, Deanna" she says, "Eager to start your life the Borg, it seems? We'll take the Trill woman."
The two of us suddenly blast away with our disruptors, and the Queen is injured before her body shields prevent further damage.
"Here is the self-destruct" shouts Dax. She activates it. The drones are still too confused to move agaiinst us.
That's it. I've had enough danger for one day. The Cappy had better let me spend a week in the Mall as a reward for all this!
"Two to beam out!" I call, and we are back on the Enterprise.
There is a loud blast as the Cube explodes,
"Warp engines offline!" says Geordi.
"One lifesign still remaining!" Data tells us.
A Borg escape pod has jettisoned, but goes at transwarp speed. With warp engines offline, we can't catch it."
"We are being hailed" Data tells us.
I just wonder who it's gonna be?
The image of the wounded Troi Borg Queen appears.
"You got away this time" she tells us, as she nurses her wounds, "But I'll get my revenge...especially on you, Deanna!"
Her image fades.
"I'm off to the SickBay to get fixed up" I say, when looking at myself.
"You could keep the outfit on if you like, Deanna!" grins a satisfied Riker as if he has a plateful of donuts in front of him.
I give him a glare and walk out....although I did laugh to myself as well.
