Christmas Party Updates

I call all of the senior staff into the meeting room.

"As Halloween is now over." I start, ""We ought to look forward to Christmas and making sure everything is running according to schedule."

"Do what?" snorts Worf, "It seems like the Borg are controlling the procedings this year. We ought.."

"There is nothing wrong with that!" snaps Seven of Nine, "The Borg are supreme organisers. With our Hive Mind anything can ba accomplished."

Worf looks disgusted.

"I don't see why we have to kowtow to them?" asks Jadzia, "Just because their leader wants to come."

"The Alpha Borg Queen." is the leader of our race." Seven says angrily, "You should feel honoured that that such a mighty being has lowered herself to come to visit such a puny ship."

Phew! Seven sure knows how to make friends. I think it's time to diffuse the row that is brewing.

"Let's move on." I say, "Now the theme of the Party this year is that a holodeck will be made to look like a Borg Cube, with a specially prepared dance area. Do they have those in normal Cubes, Seven?"

"Only when we have something to celebrate, Locutus." she replies, "Like having just assimilated an entire planet. We have a high old time then."

I'm not sure she is telling the truth or just showing some Borg humour.

"Err yes, well." I continue, "Well, as you know, the Alpha Borg Queen will we making a special visit. We want to show her that we are a civilised race..."

"...Worthy of assimilation?" butts in Ensign Britney. Her comment incites a few to murmur words of agreement.

"What about the guests, Jean-Luc?" whispers Bev, in an attempt to help me.

"Ah yes, the guests." I swiftly say, "Now the invites will be going out in mid-November for the Party that will commence on Monday 1st December."

"I hope we won't have any problems with them." complains Worf, "Last year, some of them were from the 21st Century and I had to put some of them in the brig. It interfered with the temporal directive and we got into trouble for that."

"Yes, we will have to be careful." I say, "And Mr Worf, you will NOT be allowed to imprison the Alpha Borg Queen. It's a diplomatic visit and would mean the end of the human race if you did."

Everyone mumbles a little.

"All right then." I say, "I think that's all for now."

On the way out, I still hear Jadzia talking to Worf saying "There's gonna be trouble."

This is a little scary. So much to take into consideration. It'll be interesting to see how it develops.

I'd love to know what a Borg dance floor would actually look like.

Titania Starlight said...

This is going to be quite a Christmas. I would personally stay far away where the Borg Queen is concerned. I'll hang around and watch though. :o)

Merlyn Gabriel said...

OOoooooh Christmas party!! I can hardly wait!

The Mistress of the Dark said...

Oh Christmas party. One year I will participate.

The Curmudgeon said...

Would it really be Christmas without trouble?

Jean-Luc Picard said...

MOTD. hope it's this year you will participate. We need you!

Titania, hope you'll come. The Borg Queen is avoidable...just don't give her anything to drink.

Can you please make sure that Worf recognizes my US passport and Virginia state driver's license this year? Last year he gave me a hard time because he thought they were a few hundred years out of date.

I'm pretty sure one doesn't have to be a psychic to know that there is definitely going to be some trouble along with - hopefully - the eggnog!

This blog is weird

Lahdeedah said...

I want to come.

I want to really live it up this year.

Maybe hang with T'Pol and Sistah Britney.. ya know?

Inertia said...

Borgs dance?

Jean-Luc Picard said...

Lahdeedah, you'll be getting into the wrong crowd with Britney & T'Pol. Still, you can all share the same brig.

Inertia, of course the Borg dance. Just because you haven't seen it doesn't mean they don't do it.

I may need to borrow lasers from Leonard Nimoy to attend! It would be only "logical". :D)
