With the senior staff all gathered in my Ready Room, we are all assembled for the most important meeting of the year. To discuss plans for the Enterprise Christmas Party.
"Would anyone like to put their suggestions to where it should be held this year?" I ask. This is a neat way of passing the buck to the others as I haven't an idea myself.
"Definitely not in a gay bar like we did last year!" Worf gruffly barks out.
"Why not!!" yell out Lieutenant Britney and her girlfriend T'Pol almost together.
"I was approached by a young man named Nigel." answers a reddening Worf, as his wife Jadzia laughs next to him, "He suggested that I go outside and see his phaser gun. Naturally, I declined, but he still occasionally sends me messages."
Somehow, I resist the urge to laugh out loud, and see Annika Hansen is about to stand. I wonder which consiousness is dominating her?
"It must take place in a Borg Cube or at the very least a holographic representation of it ." she answers in her firm Seven voice, "The Borg Queen will expect an invitation, so it is rightful you maker her seem at home, especially as we Borg have extended a truce..."
She stops, sits down and starts talking to herself. It's clear that her Annika consiousness is having a few things to say about her suggestions.
"Can't we just have it in a holographic night club?" Will Riker suggests, "After all, it is the Enterprise Christmas Party. Visitors will just have to accept it the way it is."
"I agree, Will." pipes up Deanna, plus a few other individuals.
"Very well." I decide, "We will have the party on Monday 5th November in a holographic nightclub."
"The Queen will not like this." mumbles Annika in her Seven voice.
"Yes she will, Seven." I retort, "I think the Borg Queen knows how to enjoy a party a lot more than you do. If you don't like it, loosen up and let Annika enjoy it. This will be her first Enterprise Christmas Party."
Seven goes out in a huff.
I'm sure I'm sowing the seeds for more Party disasters.
