Things are just right, now that crazy professor shown me that device. It opened my eyes a lot, and have escaped the drudgery of the Enterprise and am enjoying a life of crime with a gang and a cute babe named Toots I've picked up.
"Hey, Johnny!" she says, "When are we going to go on another robbery? You know I love using my tommy gun phaser when we go in those rich joints."
"Can it, Toots!" I reply, "I'm the boss of this outfit, and I say when we do another job. You're there just as eye-candy."
She snorts off in a huff. I love it when dames do that!
Still, Toots has been getting too friendly with Lefty lately. I'll have him plugged if I catch them together.
We're holed up on a remote planet right now, with the shuttlecraft all ready to go when we embark on our next job. The authorities are always after us and we have to be on our guard all the time in case they catch up with us.
"Hey, boss!" Lefty calls out, "I've heard the Disana Jewels will be exhibited tomorrow on Vasra VI. Could be worth a heist."
"You could be right, Lefty." I say to him, and laugh at what I just said, "Get the boys and Toots in and we'll plan the operation."
They all come in and sit round the desk.
"Now lissen up!" I tell them, "We're gonna make a call on Vasra VI and get the Disana Jewels off there. Once we do, we'll be living on Easy Street."
Fats steps forward.
"Gee, boss." he says with a whine, "It all sounds kinda dangerous to me."
"You say everything is dangerous, Fats." I comment disgustedly, "You'd be scared to rob a candy store."
"Well, you never know..." he trails off.
"Can it Fats!" I declare, "Now, Toots, you go in and distract the guards, and as they are eyeing you, the boys and I will come in from the back and take over."
"Sure, Johnny." she says in that squeaky voice of hers.
Suddenly we hear a noise outside. I send Lefty out to investigate.
"It's a dame, boss" he tells me, and brings her in.
"Hello, Jean-Luc....errr, Johnny." she says, "I want to join your....errr...mob."
To be continued after the TWQ...
