The Abduction Of Data (Part Six)

Guest Poster: Data

I am suddenly activated.

I find myself in a laboratory that is clearly set in an underground cave. Next to me is my girlfriend Jennifer Baxter, who looks rather attractive in a black leather outfit, and has a bag of guns with her. She is looking rather pleased.

"Yeah!" she shouts, "I knew I could do it!"

"Jenny." I ask, "What is going on? The last thing I remember is being beamed off the Enterprise and switched off by someone before I could do anything."

"That someone was your brother Lore." she answers, "He took you apart, hoping to spread your pieces around the galaxy, just keeping vital parts for himself that may break down. He faked the calls from the Staros so the Enterprise would go there. Fortunately he didn't know I had read the book 'How to Assemble a Positronic Android.' Right now we have to get out of this laboratory, which has a force field.."

"That could be difficult, Jenny." I tell her.

"Actually, Data." she says, "I was hoping your electrical circuits might be able to help in that direction."

"You are right." I reply, "However a wire routing could either short circuit the forcefield system...or my positronic brain."

"Then we'll have to make sure we get it right, sweetie." Jenny answers confidently, "I did read the 'Advanced' section in the book. Get the top of your head open."

I do what she asks, though I am slightly concerned regarding her ability. I am somewhat reluctant in having my brain short-circuited.

The wire from the door power block is attached to my brain. I feel a sudden sizzle, but in a moment, I am still functioning. Jenny throws a brick through the doorway and confirms that the forcefield is down.

"Right." she says, "It's time to get Lore."

The two of us run through, but he is nowhere to be located. We head toward the exit, only to be greeted by Captain Picard, Doctor Crusher and the rest of the Enterprise crew.

"Well done, Ensign." the Doctor says with a smile, "I see you have Data back in one piece."

"He is now." Jenny answers, and procedes to tell everybody about Lore.

"Well there is no sign of him here." the Captain comments, "He must have seen us coming on his long-range sensors and got away in that Escape Pod. It would have been small enough to prevent us detecting it."

"That is most unfortunate, Captain." I state.

"Indeed, Data," he answers, "Although the Escape Pod has saved many starship lives, it was not created to let criminals get away. I fear you have made an enemy today, Ensign Baxter."

"That's fine by me, sir." Jenny answers, "If Lore comes anywhere near me or Data, he'll be sorry, and end up ventilated."

I think Lore would be wise stay well clear. Jenny is not the sort to be pushed around.

Nice one Miss Baxter, and here your parents where thinking he was the wrong guy for you, I would hate to be Lore right now, I guess Dr Soong perfected the "how to understand females" sub-processor after he finished lore.

Jana said...

That Jenny is definitely a keeper, Data!

Professor Xavier said...

With a girlfriend like that, I don't see why Data ever leaves his room.

Nepharia said...

Hey, I should get together with Jenny. I like reading technical manuals for fun too!

Batman said...

It's good data is back together.

Michael Manning said...

If Data is willing to relinquish some control on the merits of "Goodwill"--unlike the IRS kind---I have offered to receive (as a matter of record stored in the Captains Quarters safe) ALL of the beautiful women here in The United States. For safe keeping of course! :D

Michael Manning said...

Slight correction: All of the beautiful women on the USS Enterprise.

Danny Bailey said...

I wouldn't want my brain fried either, Data

I have to admit that Jen does look good in leather.

I have always like leather on the female technomages and never understood why they insisted on cloth

With a brother like that who needs enemies

Btw my challenge is up on LSG3

I fear this story may seem to be finished...but in reality it's far from over!

Happy Friday Captain :)

Cin said...

Hello hello - Michele sent me!

Looks like I've walked into quite the doozy of a story. Very intriguing, I'll have to read the other parts to get totally caught up.

Happy Friday!

How much are the Escape Pods cause I really would love one to escape in from time to time.

Bulma said...

Hmmm where can I get a copy of that book?

eastcoastlife said...

Like me, Jenny kicks butts. haha.....

Jean-Luc Picard said...

Jenny certainly is a popular character. I agree with you. Data is lucky to get a girl like her who fights for her man.

The Curmudgeon said...

She fought for him... reassembled him... and has read the advanced sections of the manual.

Captain, if I were you, I'd be on the lookout for the unexpected consequences of any 'improvements' that Ensign Baxter may have installed in the course of this work.....

Jaime said...

Yay, Data!! Glad you're okay!!

The Real Mother Hen said...

COOL! I like this story :)
Cheers to Ms Bexter, woohoo!
