The senior staff are having a meeting before we all go on our Shore Leave. The Enterprise is being cleaned out. After millions of miles though space, the ship needs it!
Especially with the Bolian lavatorial habits; I don't think I'll mention that.
"We'll everybody" I say, to open the meeting, "What are you all going to do in the time you are away from the Enterprise?"
"I'll be visiting my old friends on Deep Space Nine" replies Jadzia, "I'll be taking Worfie...I mean Lieutenant Worf along with me, as he's always wanted to have a good look around."
Worf looks a little embarassed, as if Jadzia has told us something she shouldn't have done.
"Err..yes....I shall be going with Lieutenant Dax." he declares rather formally.
"How about you, Data" asks Riker, "Going to have some fun?"
"No, Commander" he replies, "I shall be going to a lecture on quantum field mechanics and biogenic research."
"Wow, Data" laughs Beverly, "You know how to have a good time!"
"Well my girlfriend Jennifer Baxter will be going along with me." he informs us.
"You know how to look after a lady!" remarks Deanna.
Data looks confused.
"What about you, Geordi?" asks Riker, "Will you be going anywhere with Trisha Lewis?"
"Absolutely!" he tells us, "We are going to the Rigel IV pleasure planet"
"Isn't it the height of the tourist season?" asks Beverley, "Will you be able to get in?"
"We booked it months ago" assures Geordi, "It'll be Fun City, Arizona!"
"What about you, Beverly?" I ask. I'd like her to say she isn't doing anything, but Wes always gets her away at holidays.
"I'm going to have to check up on Wes" she replies, "I've been worried about him ever since Karena, the Amazonian girl from Wondawowman chosen him to be her servant at the Academy."
"I'll be off to the headquarters of the Maquis" says Ensign Ro, "They are planning a lovely holiday package for a tour around the Bajoran moons."
"Will and I will be going to Betazed" states Deanna, "We've got to tell my mother that we'll be getting married when we feel like it, and not when she decides."
"I shall be visiting the Borg Cube Unimatrix 01" Seven tells us, "I need to present my latest report to the Borg Queen and tell her whether you should be assimilated yet. Then I can have a few days rest in my alcove."
We all look uneasy for a few moments.
"What about you, Captain?" asks Deanna, "Where will you be going?"
"I shall be resting in a quiet hotel in Torquay, England, where a lovely breakfast is served. Lots of places to see, and also some peace and quiet."
"What about your Journal?" asks Riker.
"I'll give my Intern something to put in it on Saturday." I reply.
"How much do you pay your Intern?" inquires Beverly.
"Sssh!" I reply, "He doesn't know I should pay him. Meeting closed; have a good vacation, everyone."
