Infiltrating Section 31 (Part Two)
Guest Poster: Sloan
Getting the Christmas tree all ready takes some time. I've also got my children their presents. Naturally, they both get a copy of the latest edition of 'The Bumper Book Of Spying'. I've also bought myself a copy as well.
Agent X2 enters the room.
"It's time to go to the alley to see if we have any new recruits, sir."
"Do you think there are going to be any there tonight, X2?" I ask him, "After all, people are going out shopping, not joining subversive organisations like ours at this time of year."
"You may be right, sir." X2 replies, with a hint of sarcasm, "But it never hurts to look does, it?"
X2 is getting far too uppity; I may have him relocated to our Andoran branch.
A few hours later, we are in the alleyway behind Starfleet Headquarters. Santini's Pizza Parlour is next door. I find four characters all dressed in dark outfits; a man with a beard, a young dark haired woman, a Ferengi and a Cardassian.
"Greetings." I say to them, "You may call me Sloan; with me is Agent X2. Come with me please."
Shortly, we are in a faceless building nearby.
"Would you care to introduce yourselves to me?" I ask them, "And state your reasons for wanting to join my group."
"I am Qwerty" states the Ferengi, "How many Credits can I make from being with you?"
"You can make lots of Credits if you are a good agent, Qwerty." I reply, "Next...?"
"I am Gul Buket." declares the Cardassian angrily, "I want Starfleet to be run by Section 31, not be the elected officials."
"An excellent reason." I tell him, "That is what Section 31 is all about. Next....?"
"I'm Commander William Riker of the Starship Enterprise" says the man, "I want the opportunity to spy on my boss and eventually be the Captain."
"Very good, Commander Riker, you would be an excellent addition to Section 31. Lastly...?"
The woman stands up.
"I'm err... Counselor Deanna Troi of the Starship Enterprise" she says hesitatingly, "And I'm with Commander Riker; I errr... go where he goes, and believe what he does."
The four of them go into the briefing room; Agent X2 asks me to wait.
"This is a great day for Section 31." X2 tells me with a pleased expression, "We have two highly placed Starfleet staff joining us! They are just in time to take part in the Section 31 Christmas Dinner & Dance."
"That's true, X2" I reply, "But we want to be sure that there are no infiltrators amongst them."
To be continued...
