I've called the senior staff together for our latest meeting.
Unfortunately, as Seven has declared herself a member of the senior staff, she has to be included, otherwise she'll tell us off to the Borg Queeen and we'll all get assimilated.
"First item on the agenda." I tell them, "Is this directive from Starfleet. It reminds us that we must have regular Team Talks for the senior staff. All should attend."
"That includes me" stresses Seven.
The others grumble a little.
"Last month" says Riker, "It was a little difficult to have our Team Talk as we were fighting aliens."
"Are we supposed to suddenly stop doing that and come in for a Team Talk?" Worf gruffly says, "We fight aliens, not have table chats."
"I agree Mr Worf" I tell him, "We would just have to postpone it."
"What would happen if aliens invaded while all the senior staff were in a Team Talk?" asks Geordi, "The Enterprise would not have any leading figures on the Bridge."
"You could self-destruct the ship from here." Seven declares.
"Err...yes, but we don't want to have to go to that extreme, Seven." I tell her, "Let's move on to the next item."
"What's that, Captain?" asks Riker.
"The women's washrooms, Number One" I tell him, "The has been a spate of vandalism there, with a lot of graffitti. Messages such as 'We are Borg' and 'Resistance is futile' have been inscribed there."
Everyone suddenly looks at Seven, who shows no emotion.
"Now I'm not going to name any suspects." I continue, "But if she continues, she'll be confined to her regeneration alcove,"
I look on my agenda list.
"Just one more item to discuss. Vacations." I tell them, "We've got to be careful when we book them so as they don't clash with other staff. I can't have mine at the same time as Commender Riker, for example."
"What about Will and I?" asks Deanna, "We'd want to have the same days off"
"So would I and Jadzia" declares Worf.
"As Trisha and I would want to." says Geordi.
"Jennifer and I would like to have the same says as well, Captain." Data informs me.
Beverly looks a little red-faced.
"Err...I'd naturally like the same days as Wesley...or perhaps certain other days."
I go a little red faced.
"Don't worry, everybody, I'm sure you'll all get the vacation times you want. Just put in your request after the Team Talk and I'll process it."
Everybody rushes out of the Ready Room as soon as I say that, leaving just me and Seven in there.
"What about your vacations, Seven?" I ask her.
"You will grant me my holidays, Locutus, or you will be assimilated." she sternly tells me.
"Err...I declare this Team Talk over."
