Dr. Bob's minions tire away endlessly to help the good Doctor in the name of science,
but with what little downtime they get they would like to share with you fine people!
Stairwells and Hallways II - By Chris
(knock knock) ... "Captain?" ... (knock knock) ...." Captain? Are you there??"
"Yes...what is it?"
"You have not been answering your communicator, and you are needed on the bridge."
"Ok, I will be right there."
................ 30 minutes later..................
Captain's Log, stardate 2016.2.29. I am needed on the bridge. My first officer had to knock on my door because my communicator had shut off mysteriously; I will talk to my head engineer about having it looked at.
"Number One, what seems to be the problem?"
"Captain, we just got a report that we are out of catnip and we have lost communication with litter producers on Tatooine. Starfleet has ordered us to investigate the communication problem."
"Ok, set cores for Tatooine, maximum warp. Number One...we have no catnip at all??"
"Unfortunately, we are out, Captain. We used the last of the fresh catnip last week, and the freeze dried supply was used up by the doctor this morning."
"Helm, will we be passing by any planets with known supplies of catnip?"
"Sir, we will be passing by the planet Kashyyyk. The planet is known for its high concentration of catnip."
"All right, get a security team assembled at the gate room. I am on my way down."
.........30 minutes later..........
"Sir, all chevrons are locked and holding."
"Good. Let's get the catnip and get back on mission."
..........47 minutes later.........
"Sir, what happened down there?"
"The Daleks did not like us being on their planet so they sent their guard Wookiees after us. We did manage to get the catnip, but we lost an ensign when he dropped his sonic screwdriver and tried to retrieve it - before he could get back to us, he was disintegrated. Number One, mark the planet Kashyyyk as hostile, with notes that catnip is plentiful.
Now, let's get to Tatooine, find out what's going on with their communications, and also get fresh litter. I hear the whole planet is one big natural litter box."
WOW, I need to lay off the catnip and SyFy before bed.
