Karena's Illness (Part One)

Guest Poster: Wesley Crusher

"I feel awful again." says my honeybunch wife Karena as we relax our quarters on the USS Rhode Island. "I don't seem to be getting any better."

"You must have had quite a hangover from the New Year's Eve Party." I reply, "I said that drinking all the Eltaran Rum would have your stomach in knots."

"Amazons don't have queasy stomachs, pumpkin." she replies sharply, "We are a warrior race and not meant to be like this. I started feeling ill before the Christmas celebrations, but my strength kept it hidden."

"Then you really need to see Doctor Ted." I urge her, "He will be able to help you.

"I don't think I want to see that holographic projection." Karena mutters, "With that weird sense of humour of his, I think he requires reprogramming."

"That's as maybe." I answer, "But Captain Hernandez says he helps put patients at ease."

"Quite the opposite, I would think." Karena says before grasping her stomach in pain.

"That does it!" I say firmly, something I not usually am as I married the amazonian princess to be her Life Servant. I speak into the COM badge and order the two of us to be transferred to Sick Bay.


I explain everything to Doctor Ted.

"Well, well." he says in a cheerily manner, "We can't have that, can we, Ensign Karena? Get your clothes off and I'll take a few glamour pictures....I mean I'll examine you. That's just my sense of humour."

I definately think the humour of Dr Ted needs re-adjusting. If Karena had her spear with her, she would probably have done it with that!

Ten minutes later, and the Doctor seems pleased.

"Well, you young rascals." he says with a laugh, "We know what you two have been up to when your shifts are over. Ensign Karena, you're pregnant."

All I remember from that point is fainting on to the floor.

To be continued...

this should be interesting, will the story last the whole 8 months?

I had a feeling it was going to be something along those lines! I bet the stomach pain that Karena is feeling is the baby's spear poking into her stomach as no doubt she's going to be a Warrior Princess just like her mom and not a milquetoast like her father!

I rather suspected this might happen -- I just hope that Karena's baby does not set off a huge diplomatic dispute... but I kind of suspect it might.

Nice! I can appreciate a blog post that has the word "honeybunch" in it.

Cogradulations to the Crushers.

Celadon, this pregnancy will only last 2 months, as amazons are a lot faster.

Linda, you're right in saying Karena's daughter will be an amazon warrior princess. Wes won't have much say in it!
