    A/N: This will be a diary of what Jean-Luc Picard and his eventual series on CBS All Access will explore.

    *Spoilers are highly likely in this Diary, so if you don't want to be spoiled, then I understand.



    Entry One:

    I try to comprehend how everything that the Federation stood for could turn out to be cold, dark, and discouraging following the events of the Hobus star going supernova and destroying Romulus and Remus.

    The Romulans refused my help to save the slave labor that they had working for them on the hidden colony of Yuyat Beta. They kidnapped myself and my First Officer, Lieutenant Commander Raffi Musiker, and took control of my flagship, the USS Verity.

    I am now in the process of working with the slaves to ensure that we can all be rescued before we are consumed by the supernova's wake. I only have a few days before that happens...

    This is a great idea for a DDC theme, and a wonderful first instalment.

    Oh but it's been too long since we had a good Trek story from you, RX! [face_dancing] [:D] It's great to see you back, and with a Picard diary, at that! Excellent first entry, and I can't wait to see where you go from here! :D [face_love] =D=

    @WarmNyota_SweetAyesha

    With the new Star Trek Picard show I couldn't resist. ;)

    @Sith-I-5

    Thank you very much. :)

    @Mira_Jade

    Thanks, sorry for DRL, but things happen including surgery that I just had this past Friday.:(

    Entry Two:
    The revelation that the Romulans stranded myself and my First Officer on Yuyat Beta, I have had no choice but to work with one of the vineyard Romulan servants by the name of Zhaban and his colleague Laris who are members of the Tal Shiar. They were excommunicated because they fell in love and thus were no longer considered part of the Romulan Empire.

    Thanks to their help, we have arranged for transport from the surface of Yuyat Beta before it is consumed by the supernova. As we are beamed aboard the transport ship along with as many slaves as it can carry, I can only hope that I can inform Starfleet in time to rescue more considering that the transport can only accomodate 100 personnel. That leaves still millions upon millions that need help within the next 48 hours; otherwise they will perish.

    What an urgent situation having to evacuate so may in such a short time! :eek: Seems like the "no love"/nonattachment thing transcends galaxies :p ... That pesky rule leads to more trouble, as we see in SW -- how secrecy was part of Anakin Skywalker's downfall.

    Looking forward to more.

    @WarmNyota_SweetAyesha

    Yes, the no love or attachment thing is multi sci-fi universes unfortunately. :(

    @earlybird-obi-wan

    Thanks for following; I am trying to not really spoil any of the episodes besides the ones that have already been released.

    ***

    Entry Three

    Luckily, the crew of the USS Verity overcame the Romulan attempt to gain control of the ship and I have now gone back to Earth to apprise Starfleet of the sincerity of the situation on not only Yuyat Beta, but other worlds that will be affected by the supernova.

    It is now the anniversary of First Contact Day and Rogue Synths have begun an attack on Mars and the shipyards where the rescue fleet is being built. So far, I am unable to contact Geordi to see what exactly is going on. The vast devastation that is occurring is causing me a sense of terrible regret in regards to not being more proactive in rescuing the Romulans. I feel at fault for what is occurring.

    I have beamed back aboard the USS Verity and we have quelled the Rogue Synth attacks, but it is too late. Mars is ablaze in ruins. Luckily, we were able to save Geordi and his family, plus a few others, but most of Mars has been destroyed along with the rescue fleet. The lives of Romulans and others on Romulan worlds is now in the hands of the Romulans or others. I cannot believe that Starfleet has failed them. I have failed them.

    Very realistic and understandable reaction - sense of remorse and self-blame. A lot of the calamity was out of his control, though that provides scant consolation. [face_thinking]

    A/N: This doesn't really spoil any part of Star Trek Picard. This is for the One-Hit Wonder Challenge: https://boards.theforce.net/threads/one-hit-wonder-challenge.50048198/
    My song was Taco's Puttin' on the Ritz from 2003.

    Entry Four

    Data Sings and looks Dapper

    Data appeared before Picard in a tuxedo holding a white can and began dancing to the song "Puttin' on the Ritz" by Taco. This was a very usual song for him to be dancing to, but Picard could not take his eyes off his former comrade as he danced to the songs lyrics being played by a band in the background.

    Data spun around and moved and swayed to the music in perfect synchronization as the song continued to play now through the chorus. Picard tapped his feet in rhythm to the song as Data now started to tap dance during the song.

    Picard enjoyed each and every part of the show that he was seeing and then suddenly it was gone. He woke up as his dog, Number One, approached him.

    "It's alright, Number One," Picard soothed the dog and then told him, "I just miss my dear friend, Data."

    Entry Four:

    A Damsel in Distress

    Dahj appeared to me frantically screaming that her boyfriend had been killed by Romulans and now they were after her as well. I did all that I could to protect her from them, but since I am in my nineties, I was literally blown to the ground from the explosion that enveloped her into nothingness.

    I am definitely out of my element in regards to what I am supposed to do now. I will have to now go to Starfleet to see if I can get help from them.

    I just recently finished watching Picard, and it was fantastic! This is an excellent look into what he's thinking and feeling in this situation. I loved the dream of Data dancing to Puttin on the Ritz, it made me smile!

    I'm worried about how he's going to react after he goes to Star Fleet. :(

    Entry Five:

    What the Hell has Happened to Starfleet

    I am totally exasperated that the Starfleet that I once knew is now no longer Starfleet. I mean, what the hell happened to Starfleet? When did they become scared and afraid to do what is right rather than close in and start to become protectionist.

    It is not something that I support and therefore, I have resigned my commission as Admiral from Starfleet. I can no longer do what they want me to do. I must now forge my own path instead. And if that means that I am no longer respected for my service to Starfleet, then to hell with them all.

    Entry Six:

    To Hell With Starfleet and its Orders

    I have now resigned myself to getting no help from Starfleet in finding Dahj's twin sister, Soji. I have contacted Raffi in regards to arranging transport from Earth to wherever I may need to go and it took some convincing on my part to get her to agree to see me. Her life has changed considerably since the last time that I saw her and I feel remorse for the way that I have not had any contact with her in quite some time.

    I can only hope that she will be at least cordial in regards to my presence but just in case I will bring a peace offering of some of my wine. I now am on my way to resolve our differences and I hope that everything will be alright.

    Well, so much for Starfleet being the noble, helpful and upstanding organization to which Jean-Luc had devoted his entire adult life to serving and supporting. Nice look at his inner-most thoughts as he goes about searching for Soji. Well done. =D=
