tom: thanks for joining us captain
janeway: np i've had my fill of irish bartenders for at least a season
tom: in that case you'll love this new program i found in the ship's database
tom: it's about a 20th-century cruise liner where the entire point is to pick up strangers
janeway: tom it's moments like these when i get a little teary-eyed thinking about how far you've come as a person
tom: thank you ma'am
janeway: and i have to say i'm impressed you managed to convince seven to participate
tom: i told her she was in charge of scheduling fun
janeway: it seems to have done the trick because here comes our cruise director now
seven: mr. and mrs. goldblum you are two point four minutes late for your racquetball lesson
mrs. goldblum: but we're 13 minutes early
seven: on the contrary
seven: you were asked to report to your initial lesson one quarter-hour in advance in order to view a brief safety video
seven: it is apparent that you do not value your own well-being
seven: on this vessel we are neither footloose nor fancy-free
seven: in light of this i cannot allow you to participate in these training exercises
seven: it is possible that your lack of consideration will damage yourselves or others
seven: i regret to inform you that i must now revoke all activity privileges for the remainder of this cruise
seven: you will return your sporting equipment to the activities desk and proceed to your cabin to contemplate the nature of your failing and its potential consequence
mr. goldblum:
mrs. goldblum:
janeway: seven
seven: yes captain
janeway: don't you think that was a little harsh
seven: you are correct captain
seven: i will rephrase to demonstrate empathy and good will
seven: mr. and mrs. goldblum, thank you for choosing pacific princess
seven: your patronage is appreciated
seven: you will *please* proceed to your cabin to contemplate the nature of your failing and its potential consequence and then kindly return for dinner at 18:00 hours
mr. goldblum:
mrs. goldblum:
tom: nailed it

Space: the final frontier. These are the voyages of the starship Enterprise. Her ongoing mission: to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life forms and new civilizations, to boldly go where no one has gone before.


don’t imagine your otp slow dancing in their socks while the taller of the two hums a tune (terribly) for them to dance to and the shorter has their face pressed into the taller one’s shoulder. don’t imagine it.
