[Trip is in his quarters, in uniform, and looking relatively pissed off. Not that this is anything new, different, or unusual for Mirrorverse. The right side of his face is covered in delta radiation burn scars, and his hair is styled a little differently, but otherwise, he looks more or less like the same guy.]


So, glad we've all come to the conclusion that this event's just showin' us how naive and stupid we'd all be if we were from some other universe. Don't bother with tryin' to do anythin' about gettin' out of here either, some of the inmates here can tell you all about how tryin' to bring down the system's not good for your health. [T'Pol. >>]


Now, can we move on with our lives and stop whinin' about what's goin' on? Some of us've got work to do.



Moriarty, status report. Now.

Kinda nice to have some quiet, apart from that flood. Of course, now that I've said it, there's gonna be some catastrophe and everyone'll start pointing fingers about me jinxing it, but still. Gotta admit, it's nice.

For any of the new people, my name's Commander Charles Tucker the Third, but everyone calls me Trip. I'm the Chief Engineer on board the starship Enterprise - not Jim's, the NX-01, the original one - and here I'm a warden and the head of maintenance and repair.

Anyone up for another movie night sometime this week? I'm kinda in the mood for somethin' like a thriller, but I can probably be talked out of it if that's not what everyone else's in the mood for.

[Private to Preston]

John Preston? Trip Tucker. We should probably talk.

[Private to T'Pol]

Four inmates in five months. Must be some kinda record. How're you doin'?

[Private to Kay]

I've got a couple questions for you, if you're not busy.

[Private to Jim]

I've got a couple ideas for the new lock.

How about next time we have a ball game, we try somethin' like water polo? The pool's big enough for that, right?

Of course, I really only know one guy who was all that into it, so I guess maybe somethin' like soccer'd go over better, but guess I'm gettin' kinda homesick about certain stuff, and havin' my ear chewed off about Stanford's chances against the University of Texas in the finals wasn't ever all that bad ta begin with. Weird what stuff ya end up missin' and what ya don't.

[Private to Ray]

So, looks like we're gonna be seein' a lot more of each other. I'm Commander Charles Tucker the Third, but everyone calls me Trip.

So, as of a couple days ago, the Fourth Doctor handed over control of Maintenance and Repair to me, and I thought everyone might as well know in case there's any confusion about who's doing what now. Back home I'm the chief engineer on board the first warp five capable starship, so I'm pretty confident in sayin' that taking care of anything busted around here is pretty well within my capabilities.

Right now the only person we've got on staff besides me is Slade Wilson, and while I'm sure the two of us'd be able ta make things work if we had to, if anyone's got an inmate who needs a job, or if there're any inmates who want to volunteer, we'd be happy ta have ya on board.

If anyone's got any questions, lemme know.

Oh, and Martha and I were tossin' around the idea of another movie night sometime soon. Anyone got any requests?

[Private to Slade]

As you know, I'm gonna be your new boss, assumin' you're still interested in workin' on the staff. And, uh, your new warden's sorta my wife.

[Warden Filter]

Anyone else tired of all this whinin'? We're here to do a job. Not make friends or complain about whatever the hell's botherin' us. You don't like it, you can leave. Simple as that.

[Private to T'Pol]

I'm callin' it off.

[Guess who's been nanomited. :|]

If anyone else missed the memo, yeah, Vince is gone. And yeah, he mighta been kinda hard to get along with, but he wasn't such a bad guy. [Not that Trip got to know him well at all or anything, so after kind of a frustrated sigh, he changes the topic.]

But this means I've had two inmates in about two months. I doubt that's some kinda Barge record, but it's startin' ta make me wonder how long this kinda thing takes ta actually get right.

Just outta curiosity, how many pairings has everyone else been through before gettin' one that lasts longer then a coupla weeks? There some kinda median, or just really luck of the draw or somethin'?

So Deadpool's not on my item anymore. Anyone seen him around, or is this another someone vanishing without warnin' thing?

Might be nice ta at least get a head's up about this stuff, Admiral.

I was thinkin', since we've had kinda a... rough week, maybe havin' a movie night comin' up sometime after dinner this week, try and get somethin' goin' that isn't gonna be too depressing that everyone can watch at a normal hour. Any suggestions? I was thinkin' somethin' along the lines of Some Like it Hot or somethin', but I'm definitely open to ideas.

[Private to T'Pol]

How are you doin' today meow? [You can totally hear the smirk.]

[So Trip's gotten off lucky. He didn't get sacrificed, he didn't turn into a Death Knight, and he didn't catch the ebola virus. Considering his usual track record? This means he's due for a disaster. Not that he's going to try and tempt fate or anything.]

It's been one heck of a first couple days here. Anythin' else comin' up I should start getting ready for, or are we finally getting that week of downtime everyone's been talkin' about?

[Private to Deadpool]

Still gonna try ta convince me you're a warden?

[Trip is wandering around the hallways, looking a little confused. Not super confused, because seriously, he's seen a lot of weird stuff before, and it'll take a little more then some reports of people acting weird and new decor on the Barge to get him really concerned.]

Guess you guys weren't kiddin' about this place. Anyone got any idea what's goin' on?

[Private to T'Pol]

Everythin' okay on your end?

I’ve seen a lotta weird stuff in my time on Enterprise, but the Barge might just take the cake. This isn’t really anything like I’d expected it to be. Of course, I’m not really sure what I did expect it to be, but this sure isn’t it. It’s definitely gonna take some gettin’ used to, but I guess I don’t have a lotta choice or anything. I’m not sure the Admiral’d appreciate me chickening out only a coupla days in, and I’m definitely not plannin’ on throwin’ in the towel anyways. I’ve got a deal ta follow through on.

[...]

Funny thing is, now that I think about it, I don’t really remember actually makin’ the deal. Or more like, I don’t remember meetin’ the Admiral. I know why I’m here, I’m just not quite sure how it happened. Is that normal?

Anyways. I'm Commander Charles Tucker, former Chief Engineer on board the starship Enterprise. Everyone calls me Trip.

... I don't suppose there's any chance of getting to check out the engines on this thing?
