The New Year With T'Pol & Britney
Guest Poster: Mirror T'Pol
Whew! What a hangover that was!
Back in the mirror universe where I came from, I could take that sort of liquor and drink Captain Archer under the table. It must have softened me up a little.
Britney is sleeping away next to me.
I give her a slight kick, in which she falls off the bed.
"Wakey, wakey, Brit!" I shout, it's the New Year and time for our shift to begin. Old grumpy the Captain will put us both in the brig if we don't get there in time"
"Whazzup?" my Deltan friend dozily says.
"Time to start." I reply, and drag her to the sonic shower, where a few minutes there soon revives her.
The two of us set out from our quarters, but find the corridors of the Enterprise very quiet.
"It seems that few people have recovered from the New Year's Eve Party we had, sistah." Britney observes, "Let's go to the Bridge."
When we arrive, we find that it is unusually silent.
We decide to ask the computer about the location of various crew members.
"Captain Picard is in Doctor Crusher's quarters."
"Commander Riker is in Deanna Troi's quarters."
"Lieutenant Commander Data is in Jennifer Baxter's quarters."
And so it goes on.
"Well, we can see what sort of night THEY have all had." laughs Britney, "Are you going to be the one to wake them up?"
"Not likely, Brit." I answer.
"What about getting the Emergency Holographic Doctor?" suggests Britney, "He has Command status, and we could use him."
"Do you really want him here." I answer, "A few seconds in the Captain's Chair and he would be into La Traviata or some other operatic piece."
"You're right, T'Pol" she comments, "We can fly this can on our own."
"Do you wanna be the Captain?" I ask Brit, "Or shall we toss?"
I win this toss, and Brit is at the Com, while I'm in the Captain's Chair.
"Where shall we go, sistah?" she asks.
"If it were up to me, we'd go to Nightclubworld, but as we've got over 1000 people on the Enterprise, I suppose we'd better go to Starbase VII, where we were due to go to."
Eventually, Captain Picard walks on with the rest of the Bridge crew. He looks in bad shape, as do all of them. We tell them that we are proceding to the Starbase as it was programmed.
"Err...yes...well done, you two."
He makes no comment about why we didn't wake him, neither do the others, as we would have known where he was!
