The Borg Queen's Warning (Part Two)

I'm still shivering after what the Borg Queen told me. It was worse than getting frozen in an IceVac.

She said that Six and the Cylon race are making inroads into the outer rim of Borg space, with their eventual objective being the conquest of Sector 0:00:01, which is Earth.

-------

"All right." I concede to the Queen, "So the Cylons are a threat. What can we do about it?"



"Are you suggesting we band together, Locutus?" the Queen says with a smile, "That would hardly be in keeping with the ways of our races, now would it?"

"So why did you warn me then?" I counter.

Honestly, it's like playing chess. The Queen is so cagey. She'd be a good diplomat, never wanting to admit anything.

"I bring you this from our glorious Leader, the Alpha Borg Queen herself. Should the Borg fail to stop them." she says, "The Cylons will come for the Federation next. They may already be conquering planets without your knowledge."

"Very well." I say, "I shall take your warning and proposal to Starfleet Headquarters. Somehow I do not think they will be too keen on having the Borg as allies."

"It will be your choice, Locutus." the Queen says, as she walks towards me, "Don't forget, even if Starfleet disagree, you and I can fight them together."

She holds her clammy hand on mine, and smiles.

Was she making a pass at me? Perhaps it's just my imagination.

"You may go for now, Locutus." the Queen says, "Look out for Six and her race. They could be anywhere. Oh, and don't forget, I'll be looking forward to dancing at the Enterprise Christmas Party."

There is a white flash, and I appear back on the Enterprise.

I tell the senior staff all what happened, although I cut out the part about the Queen holding my hand.

I think that's something they don't want to know!

Editor's Note: Don't forget that the Invite for the Enterprise Christmas Party has gone out. Look at the one printed earlier this week. It will also be republished this weekend.

Just don't invite her to your Christmas party, that would be asking for trouble.

Is the bit about the Queen taking your hand something the entire senior staff would not want to know, Locutus -- er, Captain -- or is it something that you just don't want Beverly to know?

I think I'd rather take my chances with the Cylons.

Still, don't trust the Borg. Remember that one time they tried to conquer the Federation and Earth? And by "that one time" I mean "all those times."

Never trust a Borg!

Linda said...

Oh dear, the last thing you need is a cat-fight between the Borg Queen and Bev! You had best tread lightly, Jean-Luc!

Jana said...

A choice between Cylons and Borg - that's one I wouldn't want to have to make!

Jean-Luc Picard said...

It looks very scary...Six of the Cylons, The Borg Queen with the Borg and Bev if she finds out!

Resistance is futile!

I'm hoping to be the first to shout that here...
