T'Pol's Temptation (Part One)
Guest Poster: Ensign Britney
My soulsistah T'Pol and I are on the Bridge doing vital work. That is handing out the drinks to the others. As ever Captain Picard complains about his Eael Grey. I don't think he's ever said it was just right.
"Ship on sensors, Captain." Data tells us, "It's heading for the Enterprise."
When the Captain asks for it to be indentified, he is told it has ISS markings from the mirror universe.
T'Pol looks in alarm at me, and at the Captain. She comes from that universe, albeit two hundred years earlier, and is now a wanted woman by the authorities there today.
"Relax, T'Pol." Picard says, we aren't going to let you go back, "It's only a small ship, which wouldn't have a chance against us. There is just one life form aboard. Let's hear what he or she has to say."
The ship is hailed and a face comes on the screen.
"It's Major Kira Nerys from Deep Space Nine!" exclaims Jadzia, "I haven't seen her since I was transferred to the Enterprise."
"It's not her." T'Pol says glumly.
"Greetings, Enterprise!" says the face on the screen, "Allow me to introduce myself. I am Intendant Kira Nerys of the ISS Andromeda, and from what you call the mirror universe. I would like to come aboard and speak to T'Pol, if I may?"
"Don't trust her, Captain!" I say quickly, "She looks too shifty. I wouldn't trust her..."
"I-I don't want to go back." my sistah tells me, and holds my hand.
"She'll have to get past me, first." I defiantly declare.
The Captain looks unsure.
"Understand this, Intendant Nerys." the Captain says, "You may come over to talk, but under no circumstances can you take T'Pol with you."
"That's fine, Captain Picard." Kira Nerys says, "Thank you for giving me this opportunity."
"Don't trust her, sistah." I warn T'Pol, "Anything she says to you is gonna be a lie. I can see it in her eyes."
