Britney & T'Pol The Celebrities (Part Three)
Guest Poster: Ensign Britney
Things haven't been easy for T'Pol and myself since we were featured in a photoshoot in the Galactic Picture Magazine. Since then, we have been instant celebriries, with the Federation Paparazzi chasing us everywhere we go, and asking intrusive questions about the relationship between T'Pol and I.
To make matters worse, we are about to be interviewed in a galaxy wide tv show...
"We're in a right jam here, Brit." T'Pol tells me, "The bigger celebrities we become, the worse it will be for us. Before long, we'll get interviewed by the Romulans and Klingons!"
"I agree, hun." I tell her, "This celebrity nonsense ends here. We've got to stop it so we can go back to out normal lives on the Enterprise."
We enter the tv studio and are greeted by a young woman armed with a clipboard.
"Hello Britney and T'Pol." she says to us, "Welcome to the studio. I'm Marion. As you know, the two of you will be interviewed by Oprah18, a clone of the original model. She is the 18th in the series, and as a result, the show has been going in the late 20th century. I'm her personal assisistant."
"Do you like working with her?" I casually ask.
"Oh I love being with her!" she gushes, "Oprah18 and I have been together for the last six years."
After that, she skips off to the dressing room marked Oprah18.
T'Pol turns around to look at me.
"What's going on, Brit?" she asks with a smile, "I can tell when your mind is working on something."
"Let's see, sistah." I tell her, "This might be a long shot."
A few moments later, while we are preaied to come onto the interview set, we see Oprah18 walking towards there, with her entourage.
"Good evening everybody." she announces when the cameras start rolling, "Tonight we have two extraordinary young women with us. One is from the planet Delta, there anything goes and everyone is bald, the other comes from the mirror universe in the 22nd century. They met on the Enterprise in the brig, fixed a very special relationship, and are now celebries because of their recent photoshoot. Here we have....Britney and T'Pol!"
The applause and cheers ring out from the audience.
"Here we go, sweetie." T'Pol whispers to me.
