Over the comms the music of Andy Williams ‘It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year’ was playing. Drudoc unable to turn it off on her end yet, replied. =/\= It seems we’re also experiencing some holiday ‘cheer’ up here on the bridge. Run a diagnostic see if there’s any cause of malfunction before alerting security, try a backup database rebuild from the tertiary core. =/\= She said.

=^=Aye Captain. I’ll let you know what we find.=^=
Lt jg Fayth, CSO
=^= Rainns to Andone, We have a situation.=^=
Lt. Jg. Joseph Rainns- COS
Drudoc gave a muted huff, still trying to get her commands through the computer system to shut off the music, =/\= What is happening on your end, Lieutenant. We’re having our own issues of holiday cheer up here.. =/\= She said.
Drudoc Andone CO
=^= I’ve got weapons in wrapping, wreaths coming out of replicators, and other items that don’t belong on this ship.=^=
Lt. Jg. Joseph Rainns- COS
It was at that moment yet another comm call came in the voice on the other end did not sound amused at all in the background with the voice was a rendition of ‘Dashing through the snow’ =^=”Bridge this is Engineering…What in the name of Montgomery Scott is going on!?! Is there some Tradition of Pranks that I was not aware of? It’s currently snowing down here and playing some weird horrifying overly cheerful song!?!”=^= the voice of the caitian chief shouted
“I’m unable to turn this off, Captain,” Trainor called out over the tunes. The Operations Chief had a pretty good idea of what was going on once Miz’uki mentioned it was snowing. “Environmental controls haven’t been touched, but sooner or later the Q Claus will appear,” Tenzing added having enough run-ins with him to know his tricks. “That, or someone is going to be spending a lot of time in the brig.”
Tolly was awoken by something wet licking his face, he moaned half asleep. “Rossie” he said calling the name of his old dog back on Alpha Centauri, “Stop go lay down” he opened his eyes and instantly shot up in bed screaming as he taped his comm badge =^= “Ensign Tolly to the bridge, you are not going to believe this but…um there is a Riendeer with a bright red nose in my quarters…and its…flying.” Tolly got up moving past the flying Reindeer to move into the main living area of his quarters =^= “umm scratch that, there are 9 reindeer”
“..I’m suspecting you are right, Lt Commander..” Drudoc said then hit the reply for the chief engineer’s call. =/\= Andone to Miz’uki we’re equally having similar problems up here and across the ship. We are beginning to suspect either pranks by the Q or else someone or a group of the crew are going to be spending quite a bit of time in the ship’s holding cells. =/\= She said.
It was at this point Trainor’s efforts to shut off the music succeeded casting the bridge into blessed silence.

=^=Fayth to Andone. It appears we have either a talented prankster or an intruder on board. I’m sending the file to Trainor’s station on the bridge now. I’m on my way there.=^= She sent the security feed to Trainor.
Playing the logs showed a time red-white plump suited figure phase into the arboretum in a flash of light then in another flash the decorations appeared on the plants. Then looking at one of the cameras on audio was picked up ‘ho ho ho happy holidays!’ the mystery figure said.
Moments later Sharah appeared on the bridge and sat down at her console on the bridge pulling up the same time period from all other locations around the ship looking for similar instances and then feeding them to the main viewer as she found them. Well Rainns wanted to go after bad guys.
Lt. jg Fayth, CSO
There was a moment of silence on the other end as what the captain said sank in then =^=”Ohhhh NO NO NO! It best not be that Overinflated Idiotic Puffed up Ball of Insanity that is Q”=^= She growled in reply =^=”If He is involved you May need to have Security hold me back…That being is a menace to all Starships!”=^=
In a flash the music quieted and the earlier christmas spirit flood of cheer vanished from around the ship.
In another flash of light at the chief engineer’s declaration Miz’uki found herself on the bridge in a 5x5 foot square miniature boxing arena outfitted in a two piece boxer’s outfit in one corner. While a burly muscled up parody of a Q (The classic de lancie q! With a splash of Pop Eye like clothing!) appeared in the opposite end of the ring. “..Ohh so you think you can get a good ole knocker in on me eh Ms Puss n Boots? Put up your dukes! Sisko may have gotten one in on me but you surely won’t!” he said confidently. “..Let’s see what you got!”
Perhaps Miz’uki could get in a parting shot before the Captain called a halt to things. If she wanted to try.
OOC: Forgot this bit.
In addition to the chief engineer showing up the chief of security was now at the back of the bridge.
