Mission: The Good Ole' Boys
Location: Starbase 40
Timeline: Current


New mission time!


2 hours after the USS Albion docked...

{Starbase 40, Admiral Blamer's Office}

Admiral Mark Blamer: ::pacing behind his desk and looking at his watch::

Two tough guys wearing sunglasses: ::sitting on file cabinets behind Blamer::

Blamer: "Where is he?"

Andrews: ::seated in front of the desk:: "Where is who, Sir?"

Blamer: "Sprague, your Captain!"

Andrews: "Oh." ::looks to Anders and Zatara, who are seated next to him:: "I'm sure he'll be here any minute now."

Zatara: ::trying to make small talk:: "But it was nice for you to redirect the Albion here for shore leave, Admiral."

Anders: "Yes, it's our first venture into the Beta Quadrant actually."

Blamer: "I prefer 'Bravo Quadrant.'"

Andrews: "Bravo Quadrant, of course, Sir." ::looks at his own watch::

{Starbase 40, Promenade}

Sprague: ::finishing his third chocolate sundae:: (I feel like I'm supposed to be doing something now.) ::takes another bite:: "Probably nothing."

Admiral Charles Star: ::standing behind a large plant, wearing a cheap pair of Groucho glasses:: "Psst! Sprague! Over here!"

Sprague: ::yelling:: "Admiral Charles Star, Chief of Star Fleet Operations, what are you doing on Starbase 40!?!"

Star: "Keep it down, this way" ::motions for Sprague to come toward him::

Sprague: ::spills some chocolate on himself as he waddles over:: "Admiral Star--" ::wipes his mouth with a napkin::

Star: "--Shhhh!"

Sprague: "Oh, sorry Admiral!"

Star: "I have a special mission for you and your crew. No one can know about it. No one even knows I'm here."

Sprague: "My lips are sealed!" ::zips his mouth closes::

{Starbase 40, Admiral Blamer's Office}

Andrews: ::notices all the 'Starbase of the Year' awards on Blamer's wall:: "That's quite a collection, Admiral."

Blamer: "Why thank you, we've won the last 7 years in a row. And I hope to make it 8 next month. That's actually why I brought you here." ::dramatic pause:: "Where is Sprague?"

Andrews: ::looks around nervously::

{Starbase 40, Promenade}

Star: "Sprague, I need you to conduct an investigation."

Sprague: "Anything, Admiral."

Star: "I believe that Admiral Blamer is secretly working with the Cardassian Mafia to smuggle top secret Federation technology to terrorists all over the galaxy. I need you to find the evidence."

Sprague: "Is that all, Sir?"

Star: "No."

Sprague: ::raises an eyebrow::

Star: "I also believe that Blamer is fudging his numbers so that he always wins Starbase of the Year. Find evidence of that too."

Sprague: "Of course, Sir!"

Star: "Okay, now I've got to get out of here without anyone seeing me." ::starts to walk away, but trips and falls, sending his Grouch glasses clear across the promenade::

Random Bystander: "Whoa, isn't that Admiral Star!"

{Starbase 40, Admiral Blamer's Office}

Blamer: "Enough on Sprague." ::tosses Andrews a PADD::

Andrews: ::starts reading it::

Blamer: "My numbers were a little down last month. I have a repair schedule planned for your ship that should be just enough for me to beat Yoshimeyer at Starbase 10."

Andrews: "Admiral, I don't get it... none of the equipment listed here is broken on the Albion?"

Blamer: ::waves his hand:: "It's on the house." ::pauses:: "Bruno and Jimmy G will help you."

Bruno: ::gets up from the filing cabinet:: "You gots it, boss."

Jimmy G: ::also gets up from the filing cabinet:: "We'll take care of it."

{Starbase 40, Klingon Dive Bar}

Hadden: ::having a drink with Janeway and Glass:: "Does anyone else find it strange that there's no Klingons... in a Klingon bar... so close to Klingon space?"

Janeway: ::looks around:: "Come to think of, we're the only ones who aren't Cardassians."

Glass: "By George, you're right!"

Janeway: "And we're not even close to Cardassian space."

Varley, Grexx, and Nabarati. ::enter and walk up to their table::

Varley: "Fancy seeing you guys here."

Grexx: "Small world... I mean starbase!"

Nabarati: "Yeah, we thought you had watch on the Albion right now!"

Hadden: "Wait, no, you have watch."

Nabarati: "No, you guys do!"

Grexx: "That means..."

Hadden: "...No one's minding the ship!"

{USS Albion, Bridge}


{Starbase 40, Recreation Area}

Mack, Genno, Spivick: ::all simultaneously fall from the Parrises squares course with severe injuries::

Referee: "Man down! Man down! Man down!"
