Body Swap (Part Five)

This is Jean-Luc Picard...STILL in the body of Deanna Troi!

The holographic doctor has patched me together after I was beaten to a pulp by Bev. She thought Deanna and I were having an affair, while in truth we were discussing what to do about the body-swap that happened on Arkos IV. Deanna and I descovered an artifact that transferred our minds. It said we could not talk about it except to each other.

As a result, Bev has thumped me while I'm in Troi's body, accusing me of having an affair with Jean-Luc!

What a mess.

"Let's go to Ten Forward." I say to Deanna, "Bev has a duty shift on SickBay, so she won't be there."

The two of us arrive there. I order a Klingon Ale. Guinan raises an eyebrow and looks surprised.

"That's a little strong for you, isn't it, Deanna." Guinan says to me, "You don't usually have that...except for that incident last Christmas which you asked me not to mention."

I look at Deanna, who is in my body, and she blushes.

"Hold on, honey." Guinan comments, "Something isn't right here. I can feel it. My El-Aurian senses detect that your aura isn't right."

Then she turns to Deanna.

"And YOU, Jean-Luc." she continues, "Your aura is different as well. In fact, I think you have one another''re in different bodies!"

"We can't say, Guinan." Deanna tells her.


Bev comes in angrily.

"I've left the holographic doctor in charge of the SickBay." she shout, "This time BOTH of you are going to get thumped!"

I start to get very warm and overheat....then I fall to the ground. The last thing I see is Deanna doing the same.


I wake up shortly after to see Bev kissing me....and Deanna back in her own body!

"Guinan and Deanna have told me what happened." she says, "I saw a shimmer between the two of you cross over when you fainted. It must have been your auras swapping back."

"Bev, I'm so sorry, I couldn't tell you." I say, "We would have been locked in each other's bodies."

"Well now that you're back in this one." Bev laughs, "We'll have that long-awaited date."

"And I'll let Will catch me tonight, instead of running away like you did." adds Deanna.

Captain: I can assure you that I raised an eyebrow too! This is a mess that I feel you can still navigate through! ;-)

I guess the moral of this story is that, when things get too tough, best to head off to the local (how's that for a Yank using a British term?) and let the bartender sort everything out.

You know, that seems like a pretty good moral to me.

Of the infinite possibilities that could have come from this body swap...

...the author banks on the gold standard: All's well that ends well!

Jean-Luc Picard said...'re right. A lot of embarassing things could have happened!

Good to have you back to your old self, Captain. The question remains, though, are you going to have to discipline Bev for beating up Deanna??
