Will Riker In The Chair (Part Two)

Guest Poster: Ro Laren

With Captain Picard and Beverly Crusher having a fun time at a beachside medical conference, Commander Riker is in the chair. We have some across a small ship of unknown origin. Myself, Worf, Data and Jennifer Baxter haved beamed over to investigate. A force fierld has prevented us from beaming back, and we can all hear an ominous ticking.....

Data comes across a console, and we see a countdown clock with just a few minutes to go.

"It looks like in a few minutes we shall be no more." Data calmly says, "It is fotunate that I have my girlfriend Jenny by my side at this time, though I would rather she be safe."

"It is a good day to die." Worf comments in a typical Klingon manner, "So sad that I will no longer be with my wife Jadzia. How fortunate that we married recently."

"Listen to the pair of you!" Jenny says in exasperation, "You are a right pair of doom-mongers! Let's try and solve this.

Jenny aims her multi-phase disruptor at the device, but nothing happens.

"What's happened, Jen?" I ask, "Have the batteries worn out?"

"It's not battery powered!" Jennifer replies starchily, "It is nuclear powered and cannot run down."

"My tricorder indicates that a high energy field is preventing all weapons from working.

"We have to do something!" Worf shouts irritatingly.

"I agree." Jenny answers, "Data and I were meant to be trying a hot new program in the holodeck tonight."

We alll look in horror as the countdown nears zero,and our lives flash before our eves, or in Data's case, through his circuits.

The clock reaches zero and an voice rings out:


The voice stops and the forcefield is lifted. We all beam back.

"Are you all right?" asks Riker, "Whatr happened?"

"Set a course for Farsa IV" says Jenny angrilly, "Us four need to wring Marty's neck."

Jenny continues to make her rather overheated report to Acting Captain Riker (who has commandeered Picard's Ready Room for the duration), Riker turns to the computer. "Computer," he says, "scan Marty's Diner on planet Farsa IV. Check prices, consumer ratings, ties to known Federation enemies and scan for any reports about Marty's galactic rolls.' Also, computer, check to see if Marty also makes donuts."

"Donuts, Commander?" asks Jenny, her voice rising to a dangerous pitch.

"It never hurts to be prepared, Ensign," said Riker. "If the donuts are good enough, it may be worthwhile to check out Farsa IV." He turned back to the computer on Picard's desk to scan the report building on his screen. He noticed that Jenny hadn't left yet. "Dismissed," he said -- and Jenny turned and stalked out, sorry that she had failed to bring her multi-phase disruptor to the debriefing....

Well, on a good note they weren't held there like that and then a political commercial came over the speakers. Now that would have been worthy of heading Warp 8 to the offender's planet and wringing his/her neck!

Curmy, thanks for the add-on story. IOt was great fun, and in keeping with both Riker's liking for donuts, and Jenny's gung-ho style.
