Spacebook (Part One)

Guest Poster: Mirror T'Pol

Right now, there is a new sensation that is sweeping the Federation and the words beyond. It is a social networking system that is on computers called 'Spacebook'.

It seems like most crewmembers on the Enterprise have an account, and are making friends with people from all worlds.

Starfleet seem to like it, as it is promoting harmony between races even more than the regular visits they used to make.

When I set my account up, the first Friend I naturally put in was my soul sistah Ensign Britney. She loves it, as we can exchange secret messages even she is in the brig, which happens to be quite a lot.

I don't have many friends. After all, I did come from the Terran Empire of two centuries ago in a parallel universe. Not too much in common with these around me.

Still, I am pleasantly surprised when I look in my Spacebook Account and see that someone wants to be my Friend. Her name is Elena.

There doesn't seem to be much detail about her, but I accept, and send her a welcoming message. Quickly, she responds.

Hi Sweetie!

This is Elena, Happy to make your friendship, T'Pol. I know we'll have a lot of fun chatting.

I reply, and tell her a few things about myself, my past, and where I am. She sends another message.

Hi T'Pol,

That all sounds so cool! Being on a Galaxy class vessel from Starfleet. You are so lucky! It must be a really powerful starship. Do you know at what frequency the shields work on?

Your Spacebook Friend, Elena

It sounds an odd question. Anyway I tell her I have no idea. Elena sends another message.

Hiya, T'Pol,

That's too bad. I always was interested in shield frequencies. I know the Federation has a powerful defence system. Do you know where the border defence satellites are between the and the Romulan Star Empire, and what frequency they are?

Hugs, Elena.

This girl keeps asking me all manner of questions that I have no idea of the answers. I tell her that I'll try and find out for her. Elena thinks I'm so cool, and a true friend in taking the trouble.

It's great to be able to help a friend in need.

I decide to go to Ro Laren.

"Ro." I ask, "I just wondered if you happened to know what frequency the Enterprise shields work at, where the border defence satellites are between the Federation and the Romulan Star Empire and what frequency they happen to be?"

Ro has a look of alarm on her face, and asks why I want to know.

"Elena, my Spacebook Friend was curious to find out. She tells me that she was interested in..."

"Oh she did, did she?" Ro comments sharply, "I think we need to see the Captain. We could have a potential problem on our hands."

Sigh. It seems like Elena might not be a friend after all.

To be continued...

I'm going to make a wild guess here, but I think Elena might actually be a Romulan.

Gordon said...

Yeah I was thinking that too jon or maybe not, maybe someone high up trying to see how much info you can get out of someone using it...
What was the name of that department of oddballs again, ya know the one that "doesn't exist"...
Goes to find 7 of 9 so he can hide.

I like that name Elena but I thought that would be a Russian planet name! AS for SPACEBOOK, I think ya got something there!!!

The Curmudgeon said...

Horrors! You mean that everyone who's on Facebook -- er -- Spacebook isn't necessarily a true, sincere friend?

Do all my idols have feet of clay?

Nepharia said...

T'Pol, after coming from the Terran Empire, I'm afraid you are, ahem, somewhat naive.

Linda said...

I think that T'Pol might have been better off playing a couple games of Scramble or Word Twist or something rather than talking to Elena!

Uh-oh, Elena may be pumping T'Pol for information, but at least she's not trying to sell her any Romulan rugs... Maybe they'll just play a nice game of Scrabulon instead.

Amanda said...

Ah....the dangers of social networking are felt even on the Enterprise.

Vegeta said...

Hm. at least Elena is not a stinking Skrull.

Jean-Luc Picard said...

Linda, I agree, Word Twist, Scrabulous or Scramble would have been a safer undertaking.

Jon, well spotted.

Curmudgeon, do you think Spacebook might be based on something else?

? said...

Space Book is part of the conspiracy to make people stop having social interaction.

The Mistress of the Dark said...

LOL! Spacebook. What next? And poor T'pol :(
