Girls Night Out
Guest Poster: Jadzia Dax
With the Enterprise having an oil change at the moment, the girls have decided to go out for a night on the town. That's me, Beverly, Deanna, Ro, Jennifer, Trisha, Guinan and Seven.
We were a little reluctant to take Seven, but she insisted on coming.
"I demand to know what these female get-togethers achieve." she told me. "I insist that I come with you. If you do not take me, you will be assimilated."
Well, with a charming request like that, how could we turn it down?
The eight of us all look around and decide to go in The Klingon's Cave, a known drinking establishment in the nightly circuit. We all order some Klingon Bloodwine.
Seven drinks it back without a moment's hesitation.
"This is rather weak." she says to the barman T'Leth, "Do you not have anything stronger? Bring it to me, otherwise you will be assimilated."
T'Leth goes away issuing a few Klingon curse words.
"Seven!" warns Guinan, "You can't speak to Klingons like that; they are a little touchy, and don't like being insulted."
"Their thoughts are irrelevant!" she replies.
I sigh; it seems we might not last long in this establishment.
Ten minutes later, we are all thrown out and decide to look for somewhere else.
"I think The Thirsty Ferengi is just there." Beverly comments, "Let's go and drink the place dry. Seven, be careful what you say."
We order lots more drink, such as Romulan Ale and more Klingon Bloodwine. As the night goes one, everyone starts getting more relaxed.
"Let's talk about the men we have." says Jennifer, "It'll be fun."
We shriek, although things were starting to get foggy for me. The Dax symbiant was telling me not to have any more.
"My Geordi is a super guy!" laughs Trisha, "He knows all the latest hit tunes; he always tells me he wanted to be a disc jockey."
"Is that to do with horses?" asks Seven, who is looking very much the worse for wear, as the drinks are catching up with her.
We explain it all to her as Guinan answers.
"Oh, I've had a few men in the hundreds of years I've been going. Some pretty famous ones. Can't tell, though"
Lots of screams and "do tell!" comments follow, but Guinan maintains a discreet silence.
"How about you, Bev?" we all ask, "We know you and Captain Picard are sweet for each other. Are you going to get hitched someday."
"We maintain a professional relationship" replies Beverly in her usually diplomatic voice, but she adds with a knowing smile, "We have been on a few dates together."
More loud shrieks follow, which results in the Ferengi waiter coming over and telling us that there have have been complaints about the noise from other customers.
"Blow it out of your ears!!" shouts Ro.
This causes us to be ejected again, and we head for The Bajoran Beerkeller.
Once inside, we resume what we were talking about.
"My Worfie is a great big hunk of a Klingon." I tell them as I consume more alcohol.
"He certainly is!" agrees Deanna.
"What does that mean?" I reply.
"Well, we've both known him haven't we?"
Tempers start to rise.
"Calm down, Deanna and Jadzia" warns Guinan, "We're just on a fun night out. Now, Jenny, what do you like about Data?"
"Oh, he's a great guy!" answers Jennifer Baxter, "He's always so caring and kind."
"Do you ever switch him off if he bores you?" Ro asks.
We all laugh as Jenny says she's been tempted once or twice.
"I wish I could do that with Will." Deanna comments drily, as all the women agree.
"How about you, Ro?" I ask, "You haven't got a boyfriend have you. That Lieutentant Tyler has an eye for you. He looks cute."
Ro looks red faced as we decide to get matchmaking for her later on.
"What about Seven" Deanna comments, "She hasn't got a boyfriend either."
"Romance is irrelevant" replies Seven, "It is strictly forbidden by the Borg Queen on the cubes."
"You're not on a cube now, Seven." says Deanna, "You might like it."
"Any date I did not like would be assimilated." Seven states coldly.
"Well that's one way to end a romance!" Bev answers.
We all shriek hysterically; again we are ejected by one of the waiters and stagger to the beam up point to go back to the Enterprise.
I think there will be a lot in SickBay looking for a hangover cure.
