Q's Valentine Date (Part Two)
Guest Poster: Q
Well I know when I'm not wanted!
All I wanted to do was take my date, a rather attractive female Q to the Enterprise Valentine Party. Would't you know it, Jean-Luc was on guard, making sure I didn't cause any mischief.
To tell the truth, I was more interested in having a slow dance with my date than causing mayhem on the Enterprise. The stuffy Captain throws us off.
Yes, I know what you're thinking. As we are beings from the Q Continuum, we could do anything to create a little havoc in retaliation. I didn't feel like it tonight.
"Oh, Q, sweetie." says my date, "We just aren't welcome anywhere."
"I can't think why." I reply, "It's not as if we're any trouble. Some people just can't take a joke. When we went to the restaurant, it was fun to make the waiters walk backwards."
"That's true." the female Q answers, "And when we made the waiter's clothes vanish, we did give him a menu to cover his embarrassment. Not everybody would do that."
"Of course not, dear Q." I continue, "But the question still remains. What shall we do with our date. Wwe could always go in for some serious lip-locking."
"A little later." she answers, "I want to have some fun on the Enterprise first. I can see that in their cinema they are showing Casablanca in the late-night screening. Why don't we go their and change things a little?"
My date explains what she means and I laugh. Why had I never thought of this?
Looking into the cinema, we see the senior staff watching the screen. Picard and Beverly Crusher are only seeing parts of it as they are more interested in kissing each other.
The female Q and I merge ourselves into the screen so that we control what Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman are saying....it's coming up to the big scene...
Rick: I'm saying it because it's true. Inside of us, we both know you belong with Victor. You're part of his work, the thing that keeps him going. If that plane leaves the ground and you're not with him, you'll regret it. Maybe not today. Maybe not tomorrow, but soon and for the rest of your life.
Ilsa: But what about us?
Rick: Yeah, maybe you're right, we'll send your husband packing on the plane, while you and I make sweet music together here in Casablanca.
Ilsa: Oh, Rick, I love you!
Rick: Ilsa, I think this is going to be the start of a beautiful friendship!
(they kiss and the movie ends...)
The senior staff all wake up from a semi-slumber, realising the movie hasn't ended the same way.
"What's going on?" Picard demands to know, as he stands up, Beverly falling on the floor as he does."
"You should have let my Q into the Dance." my date says, "Now you have two Q's to pester you."
We vanish back to the Continuum. I'm so proud of my Q. What a woman!
