Deanna Counsels Ro Laren (Part Two)



Guest Poster: Ro Laren

As I pour out all my troubles to Deanna Troi, about me having a secret Cardassian boyfriend and being blaclmailed, I can see her looking longingly at the chocolate sundae, which I've obviously stopped her eating by coming into her office.

Deanna notices I'm watching, so gets her mind back on track.



"You're being blackmailed?" she states, "Whoever is doing that?"

"It's a Cardassian woman named Malana." Ro blubbers, and I give her the tissue that I keep for these occasions. Believe me, they happen a lot with my patients.

"Go on." I urge her. I want to hear more of this saga.

"Well some time ago." Ro sniffles, "Malana helped me out of a tight spot when the Captain nearly caught me in a restaurant with Vorak. He and Beverly Crusher happened to be there at the same time. She said to me that sooner or later she would return to collect on her knowledge. That time has come."

I give her a few more tissues and ask Ro what Malana wanted.

"She said that I need to beam down to Realta IV, where the Enterprise is going next and hand her twenty bars of latinum, or she was going to spill the beans to the Cardassians, Bajorans and Federation."



"Latinum can't be replicated." I say, "We don't have that many on the ship."

"I know." Ro wails, "What am I gonna do?"

"Don't worry, Ro." I tell her, "We'll sort it out, and without the Cappy knowing as well."

To be continued after the TWQ...

Latinum can't be replicated?

Bummer.

Fly Girl said...

Poor Ro. She's in a really tight spot. I say, confess the truth. True love never fails!

Belle Epoque said...

Stay far away from that Latinum Ro...it's terrible for the Bajoran liver! And the Cardassian kidneys, don't even ask about that!

Never pay off a blackmailer as they are always going to come back for more!

Captain: Never a dull moment! A secret boyfriend and now blackmail!!!;-) All hands on deck!

What you need is the help of a man who won't negotiate with blackmailers. An intergalactic man of action. A dashing and heroic man armed only with his wits and a sharp sense of humor. Oh yeah and a blaster. Go on, you know who I'm talking about.

Amanda said...

Why not just get a cardassian to go do some intimidation?

Jean-Luc Picard said...

Curmy, latinum can't be replicated, which is why it's valuable to the Ferengi.

Blackmailing is so grubby!

Hey Ro sweetie, thanks for info I think Malana is going to meet with an nasty accident although I may just put myself in the frame let's just say she's not exactly popular and that latinum is probably to pay someone off.. Kinda hard to pay people off when your DEAD...
