With Starbase VI almost within sensor range, I will be able to breathe a sigh of relief as we drop off the man-hungry Natalia. Though she is married, and Ensign Britney's mother, she believes in 'open' relationships, so she and her husband Yul go off and seek 'other interests'. Natalia clearly has her sights set on mt, but Bev and Britney have been able to prevent any problems happening.
Ambassador Natalia and I are on the Bridge, as we see Starbase VI drawing dear.
"We shall be docking with Starbase VI in one hour." Data informs us with his usual I-speak-your-weight-machine tone. He would have had a good second career as the voice of them.
"It's been a delight seeing my daughter and you, Jean-Luc." Natalia breezily replies, I'd better head down to the beam-off point. Britney has collected all my items and will be waiting for me."
"In that case, Natalia." I say in my best diplomatic voice, "I'll escort you down to the Trtansporter Room."
We get in the TurboLift and order it to go to Deck 10. Only then do I realise what I've done.
"Halt TurboLift!" Natalia shouts out, and turs to me, "Now, Captain, I believe we have some unfinished business..."
Despite me commanding the lift to move, it refuses to answer my orders.
"I know a little about electronics." explains Natalia, "I had the voice codes for the Turbolifts altered so that my voice overrides the commands of all the others. Now then, Jean-Luc. There are no red headed doctors or bald daughters who try to stop us getting together..."
"I don't think that's wise, Natalia.." I try to say...
"Jean-Luc." she says seductively, "I'm a woman with needs. Us Deltan women are well known for our love of passionate pursuits. I have the ability to seduce anyone. Just fifteen minutes in this lift with me and you will forget Beverly Crusher ever existed..."
Natalia starts to unzip her suit, as I find myself more and more hypnotised by her exotic beauty....
Suddenly the lift starts moving, to Natalia's surprise, and we arrive at Deck 10. Beverly is there, waiting for us. She smiles at me, and Natalia huffily marches Bev to the Transporter Room..
"What hasppened, Beverly?" I ask.,
"Luckily I know a lot more about Enterprise technology than she does", Bev tells me, "I programmed my voice to supersede Natalia's voice, should it appear, after a few moments."
"I think you saved me there,." I confess, "Natalia has some hypnotic technique.."
"I've heard about it." she tells, "Perhaps you ought to be wearing dark glasses if she ever appears again."
