Ensign Britney's Parents (Part Two)
Guest Poster: Ensign Britney
This is great! Me and my soulsistah T'Pol are in a shuttlecraft on the way to my home planet of Delta. I wanted to introduce her to my parents.
The only drag is that we've got Captain Picard in the shuttle with us. There's some sort of diplomatic problem for him to sort out. We'll let him do that while the two of us go out and enjoy ourselves and chat to my parents.
"It looks like we are nearly there." says the Captain, and turns to me, "I shall have to talk to your parents about the problem."
"Why's that?" I say, "What's it to do with them?"
"Did you not know that both your parents have assumed Ambassadorial roles in Starfleet?" he asks, "They need me to mediate a problem between Delta and the Federation."
I groan. How boring!
I go and change into the new outfit I bought for the trip.
"What do you think of this, sistah." I ask T'Pol, "Doesn't it look cool."
"Sure does, Brit, honey." she replies. The Captain just winces.
We land on Delta, and I see the familar figures of my parents approach.
"Hi, dad." I cheerily say, "Wonderful to see you again. This is my sweetie, T'Pol, and this is Captain Picard.. Captain, this is my father, Yul."
"Pleased to meet you, Ambassador Yul." replies the Captain.
"Likewise." my father replies, "Britney, you don't need to wear a wig. Nor do you, T'Pol."
"Err...it's my own hair, Ambassador." T'Pol nervously mentions.
"My apologies." he answers, "Please call me Yul. This is my wife Natalia.
"Hi mom." I say enthusiastically, "This is T'Pol and this is..."
"Yes, I know." she says, hardly listening. All she is staring at is the bald head of Captain Picard.
"Ambassador Natalia." says the Captain.
"Please call me Natalia." she says, "Britney, I had no idea that your Captain looked so...stunning."
The Captain looks taken aback and panic stricken. The alarm bells start ringing in me as well. Is my mother falling for Captain Picard?
