Picard's Psychiatric Evaluation (Part Two)

At the moment, I'm having a psychiatric evaluation by Dr Sarah Hollis. It seems like all Starship Captains are having to have these to show their competance and if they are fit for such a demanding role.

Right now, she is driving me crazy!

Her questions seem to be offensive and irritating. Nonetheless, as it is mandatory, I have to go through with it.


"Shall we go back in the office, Jean-Luc?" Dr Hollis suggests, "Then we can continue with this evaluation."

"Very well, I say grudgingly.

"Now then, Jean-Luc." she begins, "In the last session, you seemed to want to stress that you have a perfectly normal life."

"That's true..." I start, "I think that..."

"And that you have a relationship with with Beverly Crusher?" she interrupts.

"Well, yes," I reply.

"You are aware that Starfleet frowns on relationships between crewmembers?" she tells me.

"Yes," I tell her, "But we are discreet, and do not affect our working life. I trust this is bound by doctor/patient confidentiality?"

"As you wish." Dr Hollis answers, "Tell me, Jean-Luc, do you find ME attractive?"

The doctor moves slightly so that I can see the mini skirt she is wearing while sitting down. She also removes her glasses.

"Well, D-doctor Hollis.." I stutter, starting to sweat, "Do you think this is appropriate for my evaluation?"

"Call me Sarah, Jean-Luc." she says softly.

"Err doctor...err Sarah." I mumble, "You are indeed very attractive, but I am with Beverly."

She sighs and mutters, "If you had been Kirk in the 23rd century, the outcome would have been different."

"Can we go on with the evaluation, Doctor." I plead.

"Very well she sighs, and holds up a card.

"Now we'll have the inkblot test." Sarah says to me, "Just look at the card and tell me the first thing that comes into your mind."

I look closely..

"It could be a minor starship with two shuttlecraft, or a man with large eyebrows jumping with his arms outstretched."

"Really?" Sarah responds in surprise, "No one has ever said that one to me before!"

She writes it all down and puts her pad aside.

"Well, Jean-Luc." she concludes, "I'm pleased to say that you have passed your psychiatric evaluation."

"That's good to know. Thank you, Sarah."

"Thank YOU, Jean-Luc." she purrs softly, "Remember, if you ever want another session, just call me."

She hands her card, and leaves the office.

She scares me. I think I'll leave any future psychiatric work to Deanna. I suspect in another session with Sarah Hollis she wouldn't bother to bring her pad along!

Indeed, it would have been different with Kirk, lol!

What a strange evaluation, I think she was checking on more than your psyche, Captain!

Jean-Luc Picard: Send her over to my landing pad! I suddenly feel the need to be evaluated! I admit, I was expecting this. But also a tussle of the hair. You would have been in the envious position of saying, "I see you're letting your hair down"! :D)

the doctors at Arkham never looked like that too bad they did act like that ugh.

Tee hee :) Captain was lucky to get out of that situation with his pants on :)

The Curmudgeon said...

Good job in successfully navigating this obstacle course -- I think.

I also think that the less said to Beverly about these sessions, the better.

Jean-Luc Picard said...

Curmugeon, you may be right. Fortunately no one says what happens at their psychiatrists!

Michael, you may not get out in one piece!

That seemed to go better than earlier. See Captain, just keep your composure and you'll always end up on top.

Er, I mean not physically on top of her. You know what I mean.
