A Likely Demise

No, I haven’t become Miss Doom and Gloom. I haven’t lost hope either. πŸ˜€ I found this little “lost episode” in my email. I wrote it waaaaaaay back before the pandemic got started. It does pay off to squirell things away, especially when you’re prone to choppy seas. Consider this a lost episode of Star Trek the original series. I will apologize for any characters whose character I’ve brutalized. I hope it makes you smile or laugh. Keep hanging on.


A Likely Demise

Kirk: We….are going…to die.

Spock: It’s illogical to presume this will be the final outcome, Captain. There is still a 0.01% possibility that Bones will find the cure for this unknown ailment.

Bones: I’m not a wizard man, I’m a doctor!

Chekov: Captain, we’ll have the wictory, sir.

Ohura: I can’t die tonight. This is the night I wash my hair.

Scotty: I’ve giv’in her all she’s got, Captain. She canna take much more.

Sulu: I concur with Scotty. It’s time to turn this tug around and go search the planet for rare plant life that likely won’t cure us. But it will make for one great last adventure!

Kirk: But I….don’t…want to…die.

Spock: Your preoccupation with death is a typical human failure. Vulcans don’t fear death. It would be illogical. Fear itself is illogical. Being illogical is most illogical.

Bones: Would you put a sock in it, Spock. If Vulcans are so superior, why don’t you come up with a cure?

Checkov: Please sirs, I’m too young to die, we must have the wictory.

Ohura: Pavel’s right, we ARE too young. We look too good too.

Scotty: I could beam us down to the planet, but It’ll be a one way trip I’m afraid. It’s go or stay, Captain.

Sulu: Well, I’m ready. I was born ready. If today is the day to die than so be it!

Spock: Your enthusiasm is commendable. Most unusual for a human, but intriguing. *raises one eyebrow*

Kirk: Alright. Here’s the plan. We’ll go down to the planet… on one condition…

Checkov: What’s the condition, sir? Wictory?

Bones: Oh this is going to be good. What possible condition could you have at a time like this, man!?

Kirk: Ohura, lets wash our hair. I’m… all…frizzy.

  1. πŸ˜„ Thank you, dear Tina, for the best laugh in a long while. You should consider writing comedy sketches! I grew up with the show and have beloved Trekkies under my roof, so I can well visualize this whole thing. As a former drama student, I was doing all the voices(in my head, of course, as not to annoy my sweet husband, the biggest and most serious Trekkie of all in the family. He might’ve thought my Kirk…was…not…quite…correct. 😊). Anyway, thanks again. Such a mood brightner in a needed time. Blessings!


    1. Glad it made you laugh. I would definitely be far better at writing comedy sketches than acting them out. Too much pressure and I could never keep a straight face. Definitely not the straight man. I laugh at my own jokes. A lot! You’re so welcome. Blessings back at ya, Marisa!

And Uhura wanting to wash her hair, lololol πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚. You characterized Scotty PERFECTLY too. So good. The Spock gif made it. πŸ˜„πŸ˜„πŸ˜†πŸ˜†


    1. I’m so glad you loved it. I always get so self-conscious when I attempt humor or add bits of humor in my pieces. Sometimes it’s hit or miss. Not everyone shares the same sense of humor. Thanks so much for the encouragement. I really appreciate it. Blessings to you as well. ❀
