Section 31 Career Interviews (Part One)

There's nothing like relaxing with a cup of hot Earl Grey tea, with classical music piping through in my Ready Room. It's so rare I have these opportunities.

Suddenly, I feel a gust of wind.

"Good evening, Captain."

Naturally, I drop my tea. It all goes in my lap, which makes me yell out in agony.

I turn round; it's Sloan.

"I'm sorry if I disturbed you, Captain." he says, "But there are a few matters I need to sort out here on the Enterprise,"

"You're not trying to recruit me again for that shady organisation of yours, Section 31?" I ask, "Because if you are, Sloan, you're wasting your time."

"Section 31 is a very valuable part of Starfleet." he replies, "We may do a few missions that are not quite the way you normally do things. Actually, I am not here to recruit you."

"Then what ARE you here for, Sloan?" I ask, "I don't like you, and I don't like you on my ship."

"Don't be awkward, Captain, but I'm here to interview a certain number of staff whom we think might be eligible for membership of Section 31."

"I won't let you seem them!" I state firmly.

"It's no use you being stubborn, Captain." Sloan says with a smug smile, "I'm here on the orders of 'certain' Admirals within Starfleet who are secretly members of Section 31. You won't be able to countermand an Admiral's orders."

"But..." I start.

"Just let me talk to them, Captain." he informs me, "If they refuse, I'll just leave."

"They won't want to join you" I say confidentally, "No one likes the evil ways your group acts."

"Then you shouldn't have a worry." answers Sloan, "Send Seven Of Nine in."

Seven clanks in, views Sloan suspiciously, and sits down.

"Hello, Seven." Sloan stats, "My name is Sloan, and I represent a Starfleet group called Section 31. We are asking if you would like join us. There are..."

"Section 31" interrupts Seven, "My studies into human behaviour and Starfleet practice indicate that this is a subversive group dedicated to the overthrow of other species and keeping it for humans."

"Well you are interested in the overthrowing of other species." comments Sloan.

"That is true." replies Seven, with rising anger "But it also includes YOUR species. I am here on the assignment of the Borg Queen, and do not wish to work for another human! My best friend Sky and I both believe all humans should be removed!"

With that, she gets up and storms off, leaving Sloan flustered.

"I told you no one would join you." I say to Sloan with a smile.

"Don't be too sure yet, Captain." he replies, "There are some others on my list I want to see."

To be continued...


Author's note:

M C Pearson has cruelly given me this meme to highlight where I was 10, 20 and 30 years ago. This is going to be a dull one, Mimi!

Now, this year, I have been on a cruise to Iceland, Norway, the Netherlands and Belgium. My father and I had just had our bathroom completely done.

1997: Not a good year, as my mother had been very ill for some time. Naturally, we did not go anywhere. The company I work for had a reorganisation and I had been in the Dudley office for two years.

1987: Working in the local office of my company. In two years time we were to transfer to the centre of the city for six years.

1977: Silver Jubilee year in Britain. There were many street parties. In the local office, where I had not been long, everyone wore union jack hats outside, and lots of fun was had outside. A happy year.


The Curmudgeon said...

I think you should demand to know which 'certain' Admirals have given him orders, Captain. He could be bluffing, you know....

M. C. Pearson said...

Thanks for doing the tag, Jean-Luc! You're a doll!!!

SHI said...

Wow, that Sloan character is a sly one

nice meme I am so glad you didnt tag me...

Jaime said...

Go, Seven!!!

Ellee said...

Earl Grey is my favourite tea too captain. Now settling down to watch Spooks.

BarbaraFromCalifornia said...

Hi there.

Just passing by to say hello.

I can see the captain is up to his old tricks as usual.

Gordon said...

Now Captain if you like I might be able to accidently have sloan tossed out an airlock..

John said...

Many years ago, I decided to try Earl Grey--just because it was Capt. Picard's choice. It is by far my favorite tea and a staple in our home and in my locker at work. Thanks, JLP.

Titania Starlight said...

I wonder who else is on Sloans list. Britney perhaps? ;o)

I dedicated a post just for you today. Cheers!

It was just something I had to share.

Linda said...

Ah, there is nothing like a nice hot cup of Earl Grey - though preferably NOT in one's lap! How rude of Sloan to interrupt you with such frivolous nonsense when you're enjoying a nice peaceful cup of tea and some down-time.

Dispatch him back post-haste! Or sic Ensign Britney on him!

Professor Xavier said...

That's why I always buy specially made "hot liquid" proof clothes. It may be expensive but I think it's worth it.

Vegeta said...

Hmmm hot tea in lap. I wonder if that's the reason we saiyans evolved such tough skin...

Miss Trashahassee said...


You know, I warned you about drinkin' that sissy hot tea.

Now, if you'd a'been drinkin' you a big ol' glass of Tetley, made from them tiny little tea leaves and sweetened with about a quarter cup of sugar, you'd be walkin' normal today.

Next time get yourself a beer.

Miss T

P.S. Give Sloan a big ol' hug for me, 'K?

Amanda said...

Of course Seven would never join Section 31!

Its weird imagining that Seven has a best friend though...

Lavender said...

Subversive, hmmmm. If they ask Brittney, Id bet shed be in LOL

The Mistress of the Dark said...

Oh dear if 7 is being interviewed..that can't be good.

Jean-Luc Picard said...

MOTD, Seven gave a good response. She can handle herself well.

Linda, Lavender, Titania, you may be quite astute with naming Britney. See Part 2 soon!

Amanda, Sky is Seven's best friend. She is the female Terminatrix.

Miss T, good advice.

Professor X, Vwgeta, I think Starfleet uniforms should be redesigned to be 'thermal-free'.

John, Ellee, so you're Earl Grey users!

Gordon, that's a good idea.

Curmudgeon, that's a good thought.

Ellee said...

You have got a very good memory to remember all those years back.

mrsmogul said...

HOw does he feel about BOSTON LEGAL? Wait, do they get that show over at the Enterprise? The reason i asked is because Captain Kirk is on that show and he is portraying himself as you! JEAN LUC!

Jon the Intergalactic Gladiator said...

Yeah, that Sloan's just stirring up trouble. I bet there aren't any orders from admirals after all.

Anonymous said...

I am surprised Seven didn't join and assimilate them all

you know a corporation take over

Anonymous said...

or what ever you call it when someone takes over a govt unit

Random Magus said...

It seems like this story will take some interesting twists...

Jean-Luc Picard said...

Hotstuff, people are virtually assimilated when there is a corporate takeover.

Jon, yes, he could be bluffing.

Mrs M, I certainly don't see Boston Legal. I've seen clips and it looks dreadful!
