Wesley & Karena's Wedding (Part One)

The crew of the Enterprise and Rhode Island are all settling down here on the planet Wondawowman, waiting for the wedding to start.

We are all seated in front of the Oracle of Wisdom waiting for Wesley to come in. It's odd here, but on this female-dominated world, weddings are done in reverse, as the male has to come in.

Ah well; each to their own, I suppose.

I'm sitting near the front, next to an empty seat. Bev will be sitting there when she brings Wesley in. I'm lucky, as I'm the only man sitting this near, as I have been duubed Man of Honour in the ceremony. All the other males from the ships have been placed far at the back. The amazons are walking up and down like security, making sure that none of them try to move closer.



I notice Ciera striding in from her latest adventure, pushing people aside and making sure she gets a good seat. She waves at me and I smile back, before looking around at the crowds coming in.

"I love a good wedding, don't you, mon Capitano?" says a voice from the empty seat next to me.

Q. I groan



"Q!" I exclaim quietly, "Get away from here. I don't want you spoiling the wedding!"

"Don't worry, Jean-Luc." he says, "No one can see me except you. I'm just here to see this odd ceremony that humans go through. I have some rice with me."

"That seat is reserved for Doctor Crusher!" I tell him, "Go away!"

"Oh, all right, Jean-Luc." he says with a smile, "Don't be surprised if an extra amount of rice appears on the couple from nowhere, though."

With that, he vanishes, and I heave a sigh of relief.

I look behind me, and Seven of Nine is escorting the Borg Queen to her seat.



"Greetings, Locutus" the Queen says to me, "It is a beautiful day for this wedding."

"Indeed it is." I reply, "I believe it was raining yesterday."

"Was it really, Locutus." she summisis, "Then we are indeed lucky."

I can believe it. I'm sitting here at a wedding making small talk about the weather to the Borg Queen!

Queen Diana steps in front of the Oracle of Wisdom, glaring slightly at me.

"Let the ceremony begin." she announces, "Play the amazonian anthem!"

Female of the Species is played out:

A thousand thundering thrills await me
Facing insurmountable odds gratefully
The female of the species is more deadly than the male

Shock shock horror horror shock shock horror
I'll shout myself hoarse for your supernatural force
The female of the species is more deadly than the male

Oh she deals in witchcraft and one kiss and I'm zapped
Oh how can heaven hold a place for me
When a girl like you has cast a spell on me
Oh how can heaven hold a place for me
When a girl like you has cast a spell on me

Frankenstein and Dracula have nothing on you
Jekyll and Hyde join the back of the queue
The female of the species is more deadly than the male

Oh she wants to conquer the world completely
But first she'll conquer me discreetly
The female of the species is more deadly than the male

Oh she deals in witchcraft and one kiss and I'm zapped
Oh how can heaven hold a place for me
When a girl like you has cast a spell on me
Oh how can heaven hold a place for me
When a girl like you has cast a spell on me

Oh how can heaven hold a place for me
When a girl like you has cast a spell on me
Oh how can heaven hold a place for me
When a girl like you has cast a spell on me




Karena stands up, and the signal that Wesley is coming towards us with Bev. The amazonian is wearing a battledress with wings on the back.



She wouldn't look out of place in Ride of the Valkyries!

Here we go. We're ready for the wedding!

To be continued...

I'm glad you're sitting up front, Jean-Luc, so that you can tell me what's going on as I'm having trouble seeing well with all of these hug hats in front of me!

Merlyn Gabriel said...

oh boy this is gonna be good, things are always so good when Q is around!

Jaime said...

Yay, Q! I hope he comes back. I'd love to see what the amazons would make of him!

I still have a sinking feeling that something is going to keep them from getting married...

Epiphany said...

What a haunting prelude to the wedding. I wonder what has yet to unfold. I can't wait for part 2,Jean Luc.

Ciera said...

I can be a pushy lass, can't I?

Batman said...

So far so good. Except for Q.

The Mistress of the Dark said...

Oooo mischief from Q! Woot!

Jean-Luc Picard said...

Next it will be the ceremony of the wedding itself! No turning back for Wes!

Jon the Intergalactic Gladiator said...

This isn't going to be one of those times when everything's reset back to normal at the end is it? Would Wesley actually prefer it if it was?

Michael Manning said...

Was Angelina Jolie there? ;)

Mimi Lenox said...

Q is never good news.

Amanda said...

AW....I wish Q would have hung around for longer.

Jean-Luc Picard said...

As you see in Part 2, Q did have a surprise for them.

Mimi, what have you got for me?
