OOC: Invite & Setting:


Alex patted her hand and said “Okay, I get it Faye. And I am really happy for you. And him too. If he’s worth it.” and he gave her a wink. Letting go he said “Hey, Hammor! Screw this up and I use your green head for a hood ornament on my ship! Congratulations!” and then made his way to the music area.


Shara chuckled slightly and smirked at Daggum. “Well, looks like you got the Cochrane seal of approval, which is a good thing because those two are thick as thieves.”

Daggum looked at Cochrane, obviously sizing him up, and said “Captain, I would normally reply to such words with a heartfelt and sincere ‘Bring it.’ … but somehow I get the feeling that you don’t fight fair.” and he grinned.

Cochrane, to his credit, simply shrugged and grinned and said “The victor determines what is fair, Mr. Hammor. Always remember that.”

“He’s not wrong,” Shara said with a laugh.

It was in that moment that the doors to the holodeck swished open again and the dark skinned Chief Science Officer walked in. She was dressed in an ivory coloured, lace-trimmed Musselin summer dress; a matching scarf folded over one arm. Her hair was pulled up in one of her usual, neatly braided updos. Slung over her shoulder was what appeared to be the case of a small-ish instrument. With her right hand she carried a large serving plate filled with an assortment of sliced vegetables fresh from the Arboretum and a dip to go with them. With her left hand she held tightly onto the cat carrier she had brought as well. She still wasn’t entirely sure what had made her do this, but on her way to the holodeck she had stopped by Faye’s quarters and picked up Tess.

Walking over to Faye, one eyebrow raised, Kiama asked her friend in a whisper, “Do I want to know why the Captain might use Daggum’s head as a hood ornament?”

~Kiama Naim

Faye leaned in and said with a grin, “Because he’s being protective.” She lifted her hand and fiddled with the ring on her finger. “Kiama, we’re engaged!” And though Faye was still slightly surprised by that fact, she was bursting with happiness.

Kiama quickly, but carefully put the carrier down and then placed the plate on top of it before flinging her arms around her friend. “Oh Faye!” she almost squealed. “I’m so happy and excited for you! Since when? How did he ask you? I want to hear everything!”

Faye laughed. “I’ll tell you all the details later, but we sort of agreed at dinner the first night that our future was with each other and he surprised me earlier when we were making the hasperat by giving me a ring. He said it could mean what I wanted it to, and I want to get married. Colour me surprised,” she said, with a slightly astonished.

Tess let out a mew and Faye chuckled as dropped to one knee and opened the carrier. She held out her arms. “Tess, up!” The white and grey young cat leapt up to her shoulder and Faye Carefully rose to her feet as Tess snuggled down in the crook of her neck. “Hey, Sweetheart. Bet you’re all weirded out but what’s going on, yeah? But all your friends are here.” Tess just purred. “Thanks for bringing her. It’s actually a great idea. And she can go hunt holographic bugs and stop trying to kill my socks!” she said with a mock stern look at the empathic cat.

“You are very welcome,” Kiama replied with a soft smile as she watched Faye and Tess. “I had a feeling it might be good for her to here. And hey, you never know, maybe it will save the life of your socks if she gets all powered out from hunting holographic bug and leaves and such,” she continued with a wink as she picked up the plate full of vegetables again.

~Kiama Naim

“One can hope,” Faye said with a grin.

Cochrane looked at Kiama and said “Lieutenant Commander Naim… is that an instrument case I see you brought with you?” and he smiled.


Meanwhile, Shara had the computer generate an upright piano. “Looks like we have ourselves an ensemble,” she said with an uncharacteristic beam.
