A Cure For T'Pol (Part Four)
Guest Poster: Jadzia Dax
Deanna Troi, Ro Laren, Ensign Britney, Jennifer Baxter and myself are all in a small ship, deep in the heart of Romulan space. Captain Picard has sent us on an un official mission, which means that if we get caught, he'll say he doesn't know anything about it. The mission is to go to Tevalla, where the only antidote for Tevallian Fever is. Britney's girlfriend T'Pol has it, and isn't going to last much longer.
As a Romulan battlecruiser has just spotted us, it looks like we have had it. Deanna seems to have a moment of inspiration and gone round to the back of the ship.
"Deanna!" I shout to her, "We need some help! It's no time to vanish!"
"Yeah." Ro calls in agreement, "We did a little action here. The ship is almost here. They are hailing us!"
Suddenly, we hear a hurried rush, and Deanna comes back, out of breath, wearing something very different.
We gasp in amazaement, but say nothing as Deanna answers the hail.,
As the face of the Romulan Commander comes on our screen and announces himself as Karola, Deanna calmly talks to him.
"This is Commander Selana of the Romulan Counmcil" she says without a flinch, "What is it you want?"
Karola is surprised to see what appears to be a Romulan and carries on.
"May I ask what you are doing on a Federation vessel, Commander Selana?" asks Karola.
"My ship caught these Federation spies around the Romulan border." Deanna calmly answers, "I took their ship and we are going to Tevalla, where they will be questioned and tortured. Our soldiers are at the back of the ship keeping them under control."
"Very good, Commander." Karola respond, "Would you like me to give you an escort to Tevella? Perhaps we could go out for dinner after you have delivered the spies?"
"I'm very flattered, Commander Karola" Deanna answers in a slightly nervous voice, "My husband would not approve. Thank you as well for the escort offer, but I think we'll be all right from here. I'll be sure to report on how dligent and careful you were when you saw a Federation vessel."
"Very well." Karola says, "Still, if I see you in the Romulan Bar, I'll buy you drink, Selana."
With that, the battlecruiser flies off. Deanna starts to sweat and her Romulan make-up begins to slide off.
"It's a good job that Romulan went when he did." Ro observes, "Or he might have wondered why the woman he fancied had a face that was starting to melt!
"You're ruight there, Ro." Britney remarks, "C'mon. Tevalla is just in front of us. Let's get that cure for my T'Pol."
