[Backdated to before Trip and T'Pol peace out, Trip has a couple last administrative things he needs to take care of/let people know about.]

In case anyone missed the memo, with me shipping out, that leaves Dean in charge of Maintenance and Repair and Tosh in charge of the engine room. Treat them nice because they're the ones holding this place together when stuff breaks.

When Martha left - Martha Jones, she was the head of the infirmary before McCoy - she left me copies of her movie collection, which is what I've been using for some of the movie nights we've had over the last couple months. I'm leaving her movies and copies of the one I brought on board with Merlin so you guys can still have movie nights whenever you want them. Don't feel pressured to keep them going every Tuesday after dinner if that doesn't work in the future, I promise my feeling's won't be hurt.

For any new people on board, my name's Commander Charles Tucker the Third, but everyone calls me Trip. I'm the head of the maintenance and repair crew here with Dean Winchester - when he's not in a coma - and the engine room with Toshiko Sato and Shego. If anyone wants to do work with either department, get in touch with me or one of the other wardens in charge and we can try to hash something out.

Now that the flood's cleared up, is anyone in the mood for a movie night? I was thinkin' tonight after dinner, but if someone's got a better idea, let me know. I'm open to suggestions on what people wanna watch.

[Private to Jefferson]

I've got your file. You wanna sit down and talk somewhere about how this is gonna work?

For anyone who's curious, the Once-ler's gone. Off my item, door's normal and everything. [Trip just sounds... tired. Resigned. Because lol this is inmate NUMBER SEVEN and he's been here for forever and he just wants to go home, why does he have such shitty luck.] Anyway, if anyone's excited about it, take it somewhere else. I'm really not in the mood to hear about it.

[AND MOVING RIGHT ALONG by getting down to business:]

There're inmate positions available on the Maintenance and Repair crews, and in the engine room, if anyone's interested. We do background checks with your wardens before lettin' anyone start working, but you don't need to have a background in either of 'em to volunteer. Get in touch with me or Shego for the engine room, or me or Dean for Maintenance if you've got questions.

Anyway, it's been a while since we've had a movie night. I was thinking somethin' along the lines of Aliens, but if anyone's got any suggestions, lemme know. Tonight in the common room on level six, if people are interested.

Well, that was... weird. I mean, I knew there was a TV show about my universe and everything, but it's kind of another thing to think there's a show about us, here, that people watch and get creepy about. Which apparently they do back in the real world too with Star Trek, if that Vegas trip was supposed to teach us anythin'. [Fandom, what are you.]

I'm kinda figurin' this is one of those things you can't think too hard about, or you'll drive yourself crazy.

And for anyone who has heard that kinda thing about themselves, that they're from a movie or a TV show or something? Don't watch it. It's weird and you find out all sorts of weird stuff about people that you might have wanted to just keep in the dark.

Anyway, tonight we're gonna have a showing of A League of Their Own down in the common room on level six. It's a movie from 1992 about a female baseball team, and if anyone knows the line "There's no crying in baseball!", this is where that's from. It's a really good movie, so you all should come down and watch, if you're in the mood.

[Private to the Once-ler]

You doin' alright?

[Private to T'Pol]

So. I know we're not supposed to take stuff durin' things like that all that seriously, but. [lol awkward. :|||] What the hell were they talking about, you being on Trellium-D?

You know, I think that's the third coma I've been in since I got here? Getting kinda tired of just missing a couple days without warning.

Anyway, from a quick look at the network, it doesn't look like I missed anything too major. Anyone up for a movie night sometime this week? If you've got suggestions, I'd be happy to hear 'em.

[Private to the Once-ler]

Sorry I'm late getting back to you, the Admiral's got a real lousy sense of timing sometimes. I'm Commander Charles Tucker the Third, but everyone just calls me Trip. You been settling in okay?

[So for anyone who might have noticed, Trip has been basically pretty despondent since after our little vacation to Repo! Land, mostly because the mirror universe counterpart of his best friend told him he's responsible for Archer getting hurt and Trip doesn't actually know he's not from their universe yet because Malcolm is a manipulative douche.

That said, movie night has kind of been a little spotty, and while Trip's tried to keep his enthusiasm up for it because he knows it's kind of helpful to have something fun to look forward to that isn't sitting around waiting to/for inmates to graduate, so he's rallying himself a little, but he still sounds a little down.]


You know, pirates were always kinda a big deal where I grew up. Not necessarily in Panama City specifically, but just in general, people in the beach-y parts of Florida still got kinda enthusiastic about 'em.

It's been a while since I've been back there, but it was kind of a nice reminder of stuff back home. [Which got destroyed by an alien superweapon. :|

AND CHANGING THE TOPIC SO NO MORE EMO:]


As long as anyone doesn't have a problem with it since that was more or less low key as far as breaches go, I was thinkin' of doing a pirate movie marathon for movie night tomorrow, some time after dinner in the common room on level six.

So far, the list I've come up with is The Crimson Pirate, Treasure Island and at least the first Pirates of the Caribbean movie. I've got the other ones if people're interested, but I gotta warn you in advance, they're not exactly great cinema, plot wise. And this is comin' from a guy who's kinda a buff on B Horror films from the 1950's, so, that probably says somethin' about what to expect.

If anyone's got any other suggestions, feel free to let me know.

Not to beat a dead horse, but that port wasn't all that bad. And I know someone somewhere'd probably find something to argue about when I say this, but I think most of us that had exposure to 'em? Had a period of liking Disney movies and fairytales and stuff like that. And we all outgrow 'em, some faster then others, but that doesn't mean you're not allowed to look back fondly on them, or that you can't enjoy 'em as an adult.

Maybe we were just too old to appreciate it as much as we would have if we'd been there a couple years earlier. Not that I'd wanna be on the Barge as a five year old or anythin', but it's still something I'd been thinkin' about after we got back.

So, for those of you who'd be able to answer, what was your favorite Disney movie or fairytale or whatever as a kid?

Oh, and for the new people I haven't introduced myself to? Commander Charles Tucker the Third, head of Maintenance and Repair and one of the wardens in charge of the engine room. Call me Trip.

[Private to Moriarty]

If we have a ceremony on the Barge, you're being invited. I'm honestly not sure why they were so against your counterpart showin' up.

[Private to T'Pol]

So, got any ideas for honeymoon destinations?

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.

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.

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.]

This might just be a downside ta comin' from a sorta military background before endin' up here, but it's been kinda weird tryin' ta manage without much of a busy schedule outside of a port or flood every couple weeks.

So, anyone got any movie suggestions ta help kill some time? I'm kinda gettin' sick of my usual rotation. Heck I'd even take television suggestions, if you guys have got the equipment or somethin'.

[Private to Martha]

I hope I'm not steppin' on your toes or anythin', but I've been thinkin' about the whole movie night thing, and was wonderin' maybe if since we might be havin' a little down time in between ports and floods or whatever, you'd maybe be interested in tryin' ta work up some plans or somethin' for some future ones?
