The Tour

I really don't know why I have to do this; I'm the Captain. Surely I should be able to delegate this to a minion.

No, I can't; Starfleet Command insist that I give the tour of the Enterprise to new Academy Cadets. As the flagship of the fleet, we are supposed to show them the best that we have.

I hope these are better than the last lot; they were a right shower.

Five beam on; they are introduced as Vince, Pammy, Karena, Garlen and Ted.

Vince and Pammy are dressed and black and have dark make up on. Karena is an Amazonian-type warrior woman from the planet Wondawowman, Garlen is a Vulcan, and Ted is just a blank-looking individual.

"Welcome to the Enterprise" I tell them, "I'm Captain Jean-Luc Picard. and I will be showing you around this starship."

Vince kisses Pammy and they clinch for some time.

"Pay attention!" I tell them.

"We're Goths, Picard" says Vince, "We tend to do our own thing around here."

"It is not logical to behave like that" Garlen informs them.

"Blow it out of your ears, Vulcan!" replies Pammy, who giggles away with Vince.

Karena steps forward, hits Vince who slams against the walls, and then throws Pammy down the corridor.

"You will obey the Captain!" she tells them, "We are here to learn."

Ted says nothing, but writes it all down in his his pad; I suspect he's one of those who write things, but never digest anything.

The tour goes on; we go to SickBay. There, Vince and Pammy ask about what sort of drugs are available there, Karena has little interest, Garlen makes a comment that it all looks rather primative compared to Vulcan. Ted writes it all down.

We go down to the Brig. Vince and Pammy are keen to leave that area. Garlen bends the bars a little; Karena breaks them completely. Ted writes it all down.

Next to Engineering. Geordi looks worried when the entourage arrives. I don't think he likes the idea of visitors interfering with everything.

"This is real cool, Vince" says Pammy.

"Sure, baby" he replies, "This is what makes this crate go."

Geordi looks indignant.

"I think it's time to go to the Bridge." I tell them.

When we get there, they all look around curiously.

"This is the nerve centre of the Enterprise" I inform them, "All decisions come from here, with me sitting at the Captain's Chair"

"I wanna be Captain and fly this crate" Vince informs me, "Pammy, you can be my Commanding Officer."

"Oh, sure, Captain Vince" she giggles.

"You would have to work very hard to get to such a position." Garlen tells them, "Neither have you have the intelligence to get to such a post. Only I could possibly achieve this position."

A scuffle starts to break out. Lieutenant Worf moves forward to stop it, but is beaten to the intervention by Karena, who separates the individual. Ted looks carefully and writes all the details down.

"I think we're going to have trouble with Vince and Pammy" whispers Riker.

"I agree, Number One, but I think I know a solution."

I quietly use my Com badge, and tell the Cadets that it is time to meet someone.

We all walk down the corridor. Seven Of Nine approaches. Hopefully, she will say what I asked her to.

"This is Seven Of Nine." I inform them.

Vince and Pammy took absolutely terrified.

"It's a Borg drone!" They both say.

"Do you wish me to assimmilate any of these individuals" asks Seven.

"Err, no thank you" I answer, "But I'll let you know if I need you to."

Seven calmly walks away. Vince and Pammy are shaking.

"We have very strict methods of discipline on this ship" I tell them, "Well, students, the tour is over. Thank you for visiting the Enterprise."

Vince, Pammy, and even Garlen and Karena look troubled. Surpisingly, Ted shows no emotion. As the other students get ready to beam off the ship, he comes over to me.

"Well done, Captain" says Ted, "You handled those Cadets very well. I'm not really a Cadet, but was placed amongst them to see how you'd react in handling some difficult people."

"You might have told me" I complain.

"You wouldn't have behaved the same way if I had." he tells me, "I must say, though, at the Academy, we can hardly threaten to use a Borg drone on them as punishment."

Oh delightful!!!!
I have to tell Lord Vader aboutthe Borg, they have some things in common I think...

except Lord Vader actually has a sense of humour.


UngaMan said...

I thought about Seven of Nine expression and the delghtfull smile on Picard's face hehe

Very nice log!


Osquer said...

What do they expect you to do slap them on the wrist with a ruler?

I changed my mind about what Federation race I want to be. I want to be whatever race can still pass for a student even though they're a Starfleet Academy Official!

The Curmudgeon said...

Excellent report, Captain. I'm so glad to see that you are relating ever so much better to young people these days -- far, far better than when you first assumed command of the Enterprise.

I credit Wesley Crusher for that --

Yikes! What did I just say?

Johnny Carcinogen said...

Been watching Star Trek since I was 7.
Keep up the wonderful writing!

Ciera said...

It worked didn't it? I would have loved to seen the expressions on their faces as well...priceless...perhaps 7 will come in handy for more than just free stuff while shopping? :)

Professor Xavier said...

It was all just a test, eh? You'd think they would have a little more faith in the captain of their flagship.

no_average_girl said...

haha great solution!!!! Gotta love it! :-) Take lessons, Teddy Boy!

mrsmogul said...

Hey Captain, I wanna be a student for a day on the ship...can you beam me up? I won't be no trouble...heck I'll even mop the Enterprise canteen if ya want!

Jen said...

Can I get Seven of Nine to come and threaten the kids?


That scared them huh! Did they enjoy the tour? Did they learn something?
Thanks for visiting.

Miss Cellania said...

Somehow I doubt Vince and Tammy will be getting a scholarship.

Or were they planted also?

Thank you, again, for such a witty, creative post. Thank you also, for the kind words you wrote in my blog. I've listed your blog as a favorite on my site. Having spent way too many years in Corporate America, I'm all too familiar with your posts. Keep up the laughs... please!!

M. C. Pearson said...

Hilarious! I wish I had a borg drone when I worked at the Children's home!

Love the Goth thing. LOL

Sorry I haven't been over in a while. We've had a terrible tragedy and I've been pretty sad about it all.

TX said...

perhaps you will respect seven more now

Nic said...

So Seven is good for something at least, even if it is for veiled, empty threats to unruly kiddos. ;)

Viamarie said...

Would like to join the tour myself.

Hope you have a nice day!

Paperback Writer said...

Seven should have gone ahead and assimilated them.

Really, shouldn't we be thinning out the herd a bit?

emi said...

Aha! I knew Ted was a spy! That would be way too geeky for a cadet to be taking that many notes. By the way, isn't Starfleet Academy scraping the bottom just a bit with Vince and Pammy? Surely there are better candidates out there. They might even give the Borg a bad taste.

Good morning from Michele's....enjoy your Sunday
