The Maine character of all all trek series is the ships captain. What if we switched that up habit. What if we saw the trek universe though the eyes of. The ships counselor. What if the missions were form her eyes.
“Personal log , Lt Nina klarg reporting . I have been recalled to earth for reassignment. I am to meat with admiral tisorek head of star fleet medical division of personal care. I am hoping I can land a post as a senior ships. Counselor and a promotion to Lt. Commander.
“Uh Lt please come in !”the Vulcan said. It was odd to have the head of all ships counselor be a. Vulcan. He had five masters degres all related to psychology. He authored several books on the subject.she felt like she was being sent to the principles office.she had always been afraid of him.
“Lt Nina klarg reporting as ordered !”she said.”come in. Would you like something !”he asked.”no I’m fine!”she said.”are you sure? I find that most people do but are afraid to ask. It is. Considered a useless filler. Do you want anything ?”he asked again. “I would like some Klingon hot chocolate !”she said.”computer two weapon of mass chocolate !”he said. Within a few minutes. The two cups emerged . He. Took one and gave her the other.”you like Klingon hot. Chocolate ?”she asked.”I do. Evryone assumes that because Vulcan reject emotion that we like everything bland!it. Is. Bit. True .”he said. “I know my grand father on my moms side is vulcan. They would make. Him special food at family get together , he would sneak spicy foods.he seemed to enjoy jalpipinos!”she said.
“Did you do that on per pose.were you trying to draw me out sir?”she said.”yes I am your boss as human say. You need not be. Afraid of Me!”he said.”I know.if u say the wrong. Thing you might make me the counselor on urura pente !”she said.”they won’t. Let me do that any more !”he said. She laughed.”I’m sorry !”she said.”it was meant to be humorous. “He said.
“Oh OK!”she said.” I looked over your file.in your. Young life,you have accomplished much. Your supervisor feel your ready to head up a counselling department on a star ship. I tend to agree. “He said.”I see !”she said.
“The USS odyssey 2 is. About to lunch. It will need a ships counselor !”he said.”that is a sovereign class ship !”she said.”yes you don’t want to command a counselling star on a heavy crusher ?”he asked.”it is a big ship.I was hoping for a tug or a frigate ?”she said.”look I will be honest. Your graduate thesis was on the effect of family gref on star fleet officers! Your insights were quite eliminating . Your treatment on the. Subject was quite thourough. You brought up things I had not considered !”he. Said.
“I see . I am glad to hear that.it was a difficult work.it was harder then I thought when I took up the assignment . ” she said.”star fleet had decided go give the odyssey to captain Clark Bennet. “He said.”oh! I assumed his days in space were over !”she said.”he has been pushing for a while. Star fleet command has given in !”he said.”is. This a good. Idea ?”she asked.”it presents some issues !”he said.
“Did you go over this with admiral coburn?of course you did !”she said.”look we need a strong person as counselor. In case this goes south as the human expression goes. As I recall you once wrestled a Klingon target and won!”he said.”you know about that ?”she asked.”I know everything. I figure a Klingon _human and Vulcan hybred can handle this!”he said.”sir. There is bound. To be confrontation . The ship will be on long term exploration ,this is a disaster waiting to happen !”she said.”that is why I want you to take in this task !”he said.
“I can’t, I can’t do it. I have to decline.”she said.”that is. Your choice .I would not compel you to accept an assignment of this magnitude. I was hoping you would accept, I understand !”he said.”do you really or is this a tactic to persuade me to accept?”she asked.”I want you for this task. I think you are the best choice ! I am motivated to get you to accept ,that is. True . “He said.”I can’t do it! I do not want to be in a place where I might have to relieve a commanding officer in the. Outor rim ! Will coburn reconsider ?”she asked.”no the decision has. Been made!”he said.
“I known I am probably stunting my carer but I must decline even if. It means delaying my carer !”she said.”I can respect your choice. I do bit have any other openings for ships counselor . You will have to stay on as an assistant counselor for the time being!”he said.”I figured !”she said.”is that your final decision ?if it is I will need to speak to other candidates?” He said.”alright I will do it.”she said.”I knew you would!”he said.”I do like a challenge .must be the Klingon in me!”he said.”no doubt . You may not think so but your making the right decision.”he said.
“Personal log. This is one of those good news bad news kind of things.the. good news I got a promotion and a department head position. The bad news is it on a ship commanded by a man who was the lone survivor abord a ship destroyed during the dominion war. A mission where his wife was also killed. I am supposed to keep him sane and the crew safe.why did I say yes? To late to back out now I goes”
