Three New Ensigns On Board (Part One)



Guest Poster: Erika Hernandez

"So who are our new new victims....I mean Ensigns?" asks Commander Mark Hathaway, as the two of us walk towards Transporter Room 3 of the USS Rhode Island.

"An interesting trio, Commander." I reply, "One is a male prodigy, the son of the Enterprise Doctor, another is his fiancee, who is an Amazonian warrior, and the other is an Andorian woman named Tarah."

"Fascinating!" exclaims Hathaway, "I wonder which of those two women I'll have as my weekly love interest?"

"Now you can stop that right there, Mark." I tell him, "You should stop trying to model yourself on James T Kirk. I know he's your hero, but the Rhode Island is losing staff because of you."



"Why is it my fault?" he asks.

"Firstly, you take them on perilous Away Missions." I answer, "Some so hazardous, you might as well give them red shirts and paint targets on them like Kirk used to do. That's not all. A lot of the female Ensigns are away for medical reasons. They're on maternity leave!"

"I can't help it if they like me, Erika." he smiles, "You know you're the only one for me."

"You can forget that, Mark!" I reply sharply, "After you went chasing that young Maravian Ensign, you're not coming near me again!"

The two of us get to the Transporter Room. The three Ensigns beam on. I walk forward to greet them.

"Welcome to the USS Rhode Island!" I say warmly, "I'm Captain Erika Hernandez, and this is Commander Mark Hathaway."

"Gee!" says Wesley to the Amazon, "It looks just like the Enterprise, doesn't it, honeybunch?"



"Indeed it does, pumpkin." she answers.

"Hi, Captain." he says to me, "I'm Ensign Wesley Crusher, and this is my fiancee Ensign Karena. The other Ensign is Tarah."

Hathaway whispers in my ear, "I love the skimpy outfit the Amazon is wearing, but should be be waving that spear around?"

"Yes, Commander." I reply quietly, "She is allowed to wear cultural dress and anything that goes with it, which her spear counts as being. See that the crew are made aware of this."

Tarah overhears what we are saying,

"Actually, she's a primative, Captain." she tells me. This enrages Karena who starts to fight Tarah.

I order them to separate, and tell them that I will not stand for fighting on my ship.

The three of them go off, the two women clearly seething at each other.

I can see I'm going to have some problems with those three!

Nothing like a set-up for a little Star Fleet girl-girl contretemps, non?

God, I miss the 23rd century.

Cheers via Michelle.

Well, Wesley is there to bail them out of any technical difficulties! I'm sure the captain will come to appreciate that as much as you have, Captain!

Professor Xavier said...

Amazons? What an excellent idea. I should check and see if they have any mutants who need training.

Lahdeedah said...

Well.

I think Capt Hathaway is in for it, I think he's thinking of messing with the wrong girls!

The Real Mother Hen said...

Oh yeah, I welcome more cat fights as they are so delicious!!! :)

Amanda said...

Yes. There are definitely problems on the horizon!

Galen said...

Not good at all...

However maybe Mark will take an interest in Tarah and she will forget Wes


then again maybe not

The Mistress of the Dark said...

I wonder if I can be Mark's weekly love interest for a week or two :)

Justice said...

okay now do I want to know what was wrong with the young Maravian Ensign


?

Robin said...

Hooray for Amazons, firstly. Secondly, I wonder why Commander Hathaway is on his com requesting a voluminous delivery mud of all things?! ;-)

The Curmudgeon said...

This is not the kind of technical problem that Ensign Crusher may be expected to solve.

Life aboard the Rhode Island is about to get even more complicated for her poor captain. (And she really should be trying to move her no. 1 away, too, don't you think?)

Gordon said...

Hmm I think it might be best to keep Tarah and Karena as far apart as possible, oh and Tarah as far away from Wesley as possible also otherwise it could get messy.

Michael Manning said...

Captain: Let me know when and if you require a stand in while you vacation in Hawaii. Ah, yes. Solving disputes among women scantily clothed. Remember that I made this offer out of concern for your lack of vacations! ;)

Superman said...

You're all right...I can't see Ksrena and Tarah being good friends.
