The USS Rhode Island (Part One)
Guest Poster: Erika Hernandez
As Captain of the USS Rhode Island, I've got to be discreet in how I handle relations. Commander Mark Hathaway always says he wants to be forgiven for the indescetion he had with the female Maravian Ensign.
And the Trill Ensign.
And the Bajoran Ensign.
I have to accept that Mark always has a roving eye, and he likes to see the females that are on board. With James T Kirk, as his idol, he is trying to better his total.
Mark enters my Ready Room.
"Hello, Erika." he says, "Any chance of a quiet dinner tonight, then a walk along the beach in the Sondoran holographic program?"
He moves closer and gives me a long kiss on the lips. I start to feel dizzy, but recover.
"Mark...I mean Commander." I say, "You must address me by my rank and not be so familar. I am your Captain."
"That's not what you said the other night after we had that Klingon bloodwine." he replies, "We certainly didn't act like a Captain and Commander then!"
I cough, as I recall all the incidents.
"Well, that's because you gave me too much to drink." I answer, "You said that the matter would not be discussed again."
"Sure, sure." he comments with a suggestive smile, "I didn't know you had a tattoo THERE, of all places."
I go red in the face, and the conversation is fortunately halted by the arrival of the two young married Ensigns, Wesley Crusher and his wife, the amazon Karena.
"Were we interrupting anything?" Karena asks, "I was unaware that you and the Commander had a personal relationship."
"We do not!" I answer quickly, blushing even more, "I was merely going over this latest crew reports. What is it you require, Ensign?"
"I went up to the Bridge." she answers, "The crew there are all unconsious."
