As Captain of the USS Rhode Island, I usually rely on them to beam us about when I get into these little bothers, but as it got called away, it looks like we are going to have to do this ourselves.
We are on Ensign Karena's home planet of Wondawowman with her husband Wesley Crusher, the amazon Juliana and my lecherous Commander Mark Hathaway. Karena's mother has been placed under house arrest, and it looks like some troublesome amazons are preparing to put Karena's sister Nexa, who is a bit of a handful on the throne. We have just met up with her.
"You are a traitor, sister." Karena says angrily as they eye each other face to face, like a pair of gunfighters in a 'b' movie western, "When this is over, my mother will punish you severly."
"That is hardly likely to happen, sister." Nexa retorts, "I shall exile her to a friendly planet, where she can live out her days in peace there. Meanwhile, things will go on as normal, except I'll be the Queen and sitting on the throne, with my faithful friends Felicia, Yorga and Yalana as my trusted ministers."
Felicia steps forward and gives a discreet cough.
"That's not quite the plan, Nexa." she says, "We plan to have someone else as Queen."
"What do you mean?" Nexa shouts, "We all agreed..."
"I sense the plot is starting to unravel." I whisper to Mark.
As the amazons argue, a beautiful woman in white steps forward.
Felicia bends down in servitude. Karena looks in disgust.
"Yalana!" she exclaims, "Is it you who is trying to take my mother's throne?"
"I shall be the Queen of Wondawowman in a couple of days." she declares regally, "All the amazons will serve me. Those who do not will be executed."
"You said I would be Queen!" protests Nexa.
"Surely you don't think I would want any of your family to continue to rule?" Yalana laughs, "That was merely said to get you to agree to put your mother under house arrest. You, your sister, and your mother, along with your friends here will be executed on the eve of my coronation."
With that, we are led away. Talk about having a bad day.

How To Stay Out Of The Dungeon
Once upon a time in a faraway Bloggiverse there lived a maiden named Queen Mimi Pencil Skirt. She slayed her own dragons, stoked her own fire and well.....wrote memes by the light of the Bloggingham moon. One day a kind blogger from England noticed her meme lovin' ways and royally crowned her Mimi Queen of Memes. As time passed in the peaceful kingdom of Bloggingham, her Royal Highness found comfort in the company of fellow bloggers who also loved memes. But the Queen had a wicked disposition too. It is widely reported in historical Blogosphere archives that any and all bloggers found guilty of not completing their memes were promptly thrown into the dreaded Bloggingham dungeon.
If I were you, I'd do the meme
Editor's Note: I don't tag people, but invite all readers to join in Mimi's request.
