300th Post!

I've been on the Enterprise all day, and no one has mentioned it's my 300th post. Are they pretending not to know...or don't they know?

I think I'll have to discipline a few ensigns or send someone on a dangerous mission.

"Captain Picard, this is Doctor Crusher. Please report to Ten Forward" says my com badge, "We have an emergency here."

It had better be important; I think about sending Riker, but as nothing is going on, I'll head there.

When I open the door to Ten Forward, I am greeted by a lot of people and noise.

"Happy 300th, Captain Picard!!" they all shout.

I recognise the staff and also the occupants of my Guest Quarters, who visit my Journal.

Beverly rushes forward and gives me a big kiss.

"Happy 300th, Jean-Luc." she whispers to me. Everybody cheers.

I hope I'm not going to have to do a speech; I'm never keen on doing those with a lot of people around.

I looked around the group:

Tammy and Nic were having an animated political discussion with Ellee Seymour .
Barbara From California was talking with Raehan. Cierawas chatting with M C Pearson, with Better Safe Than Sorry listening in.

Professor Xavier was fending off congratulatory messages, saying "It's not me who has had 300 posts, it's him!"

Mrs Mogul was talking with Trinity about her recent move to the US, and the upcoming birth, while Jon, Intergalactic Gladiatorwas talking with Florence was talking about Dante.

Black Widow was whispering with Pantha and Vampirella, who was trying to keep some bottles of bloodwine for herself and take it with her. Summer Dawn O'Ciardha joined the Drakulon Princess. It seems they had a lot to talk about.

There was a heated discussion with Darth Nepharia , J Ranae Oneida, Merlyn Gabriel , Padme Amidala and Erifia Apoc . Erifia was there with Becca The Magnificent and Tatooine who was telling everyone how she could count to five. This annoyed Worf, as he was trying to drink his bloodwine. I could see this group of people had a lot in common, but it's best not to get involved in these matters.

Craziequeen was talking with Minerva about life in England, while No Average Girl and Radical One were chatting with Susan about religious issues.

Curmudgeon , Jim McKee, Is Anything Truly Random? InterstellarLass got into a discussion about marathon running.

Terminatrix started to worry a few people, particularly Worf, but Seven chatted with her, as they seemed to have a lot in common.

Meow and Friday's Child were exchanging postcards, inviting Ribbiticus and Shelley to join them; Fickin Chingers was explaining to Dragonflyfilly and Jana where her unusual name came from.

Heather Nicole was chatting with Bev and Secret Squirrel about nursing. Lois Lane was telling Jaime H and Jen that, no, she did not know a Mr Clark Kent.

After collecting jokes from Data, Miss Cellania was telling them to Lori , Lady Wyntir, Barbara
and Nettie . I couldn't hear them laughing. Perhaps she should have bought her own? Michele and Michelle were arguing over name spelling, as they always seem to do. Osquer , in a green outfit, was writing a haiku for the event, reading it out to Panthergirl and Paperback Writer.

As Lahdeedah , Nightingale, Petroville, TNChick, Tara Lynn Johnson, Rowan, Siskenyon and Tanda gossiped about the latest events where they were, Bev comes up to me and says, "Time to make your speech, Jean-Luc."

Oh dear.

I step up to the microphone.

"Err...I'd like to thank you all for coming" I say.

A few cheers come up from the crowd, and Beverly urges me to carry on speaking.

"It's through you that my Journal has been going." I tell them, "Without your encouragement and support, it would have vanished a long time ago. I have made many firm friends during the time my Journal has been active. This will be the 300th post. I look forward to writing many more. Keep those comments coming in!"

"Well said, Jean-Luc" says Beverly, that was a great speech.

Suddenly, I can feel a tug on my uniform from a small person who has walked up to me.

"Hello Captain Picard. My name is Tatooine, and I can count to FIVE!"


Better Safe Than Sorry said...

congrats on 300th!!!
even though i don't comment through the week, i still come over and read. you obviously put a tremendous amount of time into your posts, don't know where you come up with it.

Nic said...

Excellent post my dear Captain! It's over my last 300 posts that I've made wonderful blogfriends like you! So glad that you are in my corner of the universe! Congrats on the BIG Three-Oh-Oh. :)

M. C. Pearson said...

Happy 300th! Wow! I'm still in my 100's. LOL. I love coming here to relax on the holodeck. You make life more fun.

Jabafatboy said...

Congrats on the 300, I believe that yer dealin with a bunch of aliens that dont want to admit that they cant count.

heather said...

congrats, cap'n!

Anonymous said...

Yay!! Congratulations!

Susan said...

congratulations Jean-luc

Darth Nepharia said...

Congratulations! Will be sure to come back while you work on 400 posts :D.

The party was great -- Beverly Crusher sent out invites weeks ago so everyone would have a free spot on their calendar for the event. There were so many interesting people there -- I do so love a good political discussion with those of different points of view.

Worf did warm up after a while and offered some blood wine to us, which we thoroughly enjoyed. He even entertained us with some Klingon war songs after he'd had several (ten?) glasses.

Please let him know my schedule is free and I would love to join him in his favorite training exercise on the holodeck.

Shelley said...

Fabulous JLP! Happy 300th post! Will you have LOST figured out by the 1000th post? That's how long it'll take, eh? Big huggs from Canada!

Erifia Apoc said...

Happy 300th. Thanks for inviting me. It meant a lot. How funny it is, my birthday and your 300th post fell on the same day. :)

My Author was laughing so loud, it distracted my author's room mate to the point the room mate had to turn around and try to find out exactly was so funny.

Tatooine the Tauntaun said...

Yup! 5! My mommy was so proud. Thanks for inviting me!

Happy 300 day!

squirrel said...

Thanks for inviting me Jean-Luc! Congratulations on your 300th post!! I really enjoy your writing!

Professor Xavier said...

Believe it or not, I actually had 5 different crewmen come up to me, salute and call me captain. They didn't seem to care that I was wearing an ordinary suit. I ordered them all on latrine duty. Hope you don't mind.

And congrats on 300!!

Local Henchmen 432 said...

What? I wasn't invited to your party? Ggrrr...

Anyway, Happy 300th.

Dental for all.

Dr.Polaris rules.

Hello CAPTAIN!! It's been awhile. I am sooo sorry I left the Enterprise but I am here now to visit. I live near the archaic Space Shuttle. MAN - it belongs to a museum!! Happy 300!!

Summer Dawn O'Ciardha said...

Interesting party Captain. Thanks for the invite.

Vampirella certainly is an interesting woman.

Florence said...

What a great 300th Party! Congratulations again.

I had a great time talking to Jon, Interglactic Gladiator. He told me an amusing tale about a time he fell asleep on a long journey home after drinking all night...infact you might want to check 10 Forward to see if he's still there.

looking forward to reading more of Picard's Journal!


Lahdeedah said...

Such a lovely party! I really must send Beverly a note. Oh, that bloodwine! Paperback Writer will tell you to watch me around the wine!

Congratulations to you on your 300th post, Captain! I always enjoy reading about your adventures.

Actually, I came up with several poetic ideas. Here are two haiku for you!

In a gathering

so diverse, ideas will

sparkle like the stars!


Three hundred posts have

entertained and informed. Can't

wait to read then next!

And congratulations on your mathematical skills, Tatooine!

Miss Cellania said...

Congratulations on 300 posts! I've so enjoyed your stories.

Sorry I'm late, but I didn't detect your link. See, you've linked me both on the sidebar and in the post to my OLD site, which is now defunct. My current URL is which you visit often, but don't have updated here at your site.

Just to say I have visited both Tammy and Nic on your recommendation, they both have great sites, I hope we will stay in touch. Many thanks for your kind thoughts.

The Curmudgeon said...

I know you're not big on military protocol in the 24th Century, Captain, but just this once seems appropriate: I salute you.

And I look forward to the next three hundred posts as well.

Jean-Luc Picard said...

Wow! I'm overwhelmed by the sheer volume of kind responses to this anniversary. It's things like this that make it all worthwhile.

Nic, what you say are my thoughts as well. How else would I meet great friends?

Mimi. thanks; looking forward to that book.

Nepharia, I'll let Worf know.

Dragonflyfilly, that's a great compliment.

Erifia, glad it made your author laugh!

Tatooine, glad you came.

Professor, Latrine duty was the right course of action.

Henchman, sorry about that; blame Beverly; she organised it.

Mrs M, I've been near the area in Florida where the Space Shuttle is (Canaveral?)

Summer, I thought you and Vampi would get on!

Florence, the party wouldn't be the same without you.
