The Assassination Attempt (Part Three)
Guest Poster: Annika Hansen/Seven Of Nine
"Wake up, Annika, wake up, Seven." says a voice I recognise as Beverly Crusher.
My mind feels like it has been through a washing machine and hung out to dry. I'm alarmed that my Borg hive mind connection is no longer working, put it still seems like there is someone else in here struggling to get out.
I'm here, Seven.
What was that?
"What is going on?" I struggle up. Both Beverly Crusher and the Borg Queen are standing next to me.
"Calm down, you have been through a lot." Dr Crusher tells me.
"Calmness is irrelevent!" I shout, "You will tell me what has happened."
I am Annika and am sharing your mind, Seven.
What is happening to me?
"You were the victim of an assassination attempt, Seven." the Queen tells me, "The phaser blast short circuited all your Borg attachments. They had to be removed. You now look like a human again."
In horror at this news, I grab the mirror she was about to give me to see my appearance.
"It's horrible!" I wail, "I look so ugly!"
I don't know, Seven. I think I look kind of cute.
"Seven, who are you talking to?" Beverly asks me. all of a sudden, the other part of my mind gives way.
"Beverly." I tell her, "I don't have much time. I'm Annika Hansen. It looks like I am sharing the thoughts of the drone part of me you know as Seven. Two personalities are now in here. I think that you will have to convince her that we must learn to live together."
"No!" I shout out, "I will not share minds with a human."
You won't have much choice, sweetie.
A bewildered Beverly looks at the Queen, and at Captain Picard, who winced when he heard everything.
"What are gonna do, Jean-Luc?" she asks.
"I'll leave it to you," the Borg Queen tells them as she departs, "I hope you can help Seven."
"Annika..Seven." Beverly talks to me, "I hope we can help both of you."
"Thank you Beverly" I answer
"Thank you Beverly." I answer.
