Fourth Blogaversary!



Yes, it was four years ago on 30th April that I first started this Journal. Back then, of course...

Buzz!

That's the door. "Enter" I say.



Bev comes in, wearing a stunning red dress and carrying a rose and a bottle of wine.

"Hello, Jean-Luc." she says, "I thought you'd like me along to celebrate the special occasion."

"Which one?" I say, feeling a little blank, for some reason.

"Your Fourth Blogaversary, of course!" Bev replies with a laugh, "We did have a busy year."

"Yes." I say, "I remember when Data was abducted by Lore. Jennifer Baxter soon put paid to him."

"And what about when Worf did his stand-up comedy?" laughs Bev, "It was the funniest things I'd seen!"

"I suppose the highlight of the year was Wes & Karena's wedding." I say.

"Yes." Bev answers, "It's a pity their honeymoon did not go without a hitch."

"We had a few enemies." I tell her, "Ensign Britney came up against her old adversaries The Dregs of Society."

"They were small potatoes, Jean-Luc." Bev reminds me, "What about the Cylon War? We had to team up with the Borg, of all people to defeat them."

"At lest we got it all sorted out in time for the Christmas Party!" I laugh.

"I've just glad we managed to stop the ship being infiltrated by Section 31." Bev tells me, "That could have done a lot of damage."

"Well I heard rumours from Seven the the Borg were financially broke, recently." I say, "But they discovered an element that bought them back into security again."

I go on think of other things, but Bev hushes me.

"I think we've done enough reminiscing, Jean-Luc." she says softly, "Time to celebrate."

She pours the drink, which is a Farillion 2314. An excellent vintage.

"Happy Fourth Blogaversary, Jean-Luc." she says, as we kiss.

And a special thanks to all of my readers!

Congratulations on four strong years.

May you have many more.

I can hardly wait until the new Star Trek movie comes out to see what impact that might have on a harassed Starfleet officer....

Wow. Four years is a huge accomplishment! And to think you even dodged a Borg war. That's a lot of posts, congrats!
