Jello Cubes

(On the Enterprise-E)
Picard: Will, we should get a move on.
Riker: Aye, sir.

(Later on the Phoenix-X)
Daniel: We should rendezvous with the Enterprise soon.
Gotens: Captain, reporting for duty.
Daniel: Oh, great to have you aboard!
Ensign Dan: Captain, reporting for duty.
Daniel: Oh great...You're relieved!

(Later...)
Daniel: Are we there yet? Never mind. I'll just be in my ready room. When we get there, tell me. Commander Night, you have the Bridge. Please don't try to visit that Disney Planet.
Gotens: Okay Captain. Understood. But Captain, were you serious about the Disney Planet?
Daniel: YES!

(In the Ready Room)
Daniel: Boy am I stressed out. I feel like listening to some 20th century music. How about that ancient rapper/movie star Will Smith. Play that.

(On the bridge)
Gotens: Boy is he stressed. It looked like he was about to pull a phaser on me. Oh well.
Rock: Commander, we just passed the Disney Planet.
Gotens: Oh man. Wait a minute. I have that program on the Holosuite. I'll just go to it later.
Rock: We will be approaching the Enterprise any minute now.
Gotens: Okay. Night to the Captain, we are arriving at the Enterprise.
#Daniel: Okay, I'll be there.

(The Captain makes his way to the Bridge)
Daniel: Helm, slow to impulse.
Rock: Captain, there are signs of phaser fire.
Daniel: Scan the Enterprise.
Armond: Their shields are down and it looks like they were in a fight.
Daniel: With who? Scan for other warp signatures.
Armond: Oh my gosh, Captain! It looks like the Borg was here.
Daniel: What?!?
Armond: It looks like--
Daniel: I know what you said! Open a channel to the Enterprise.
Armond: Channel open.
Daniel: Phoenix-X to the Enterprise. Are you okay?
*Picard: We are okay, thanks. We have been attacked by the Borg. They are on their way, all across the Quadrant, to the assimilate another planet. Our systems will be online in a minute and we will be ready to go after them again.
Daniel: That's a relief. I thought for one minute that you had been assimilated.
*Picard: Captain, I Have!
Daniel: Oh yeah, I forgot. Okay. We will inform the Fleet. When you are ready, inform us and we will be ready to fight as well.
*Picard: Very well. We are ready.

(Later on the Pheonix-X)
Gotens: So what is our plan Captian?
Daniel: We are to rendezvous with the Fleet to follow the Borg. Understood?
Armond: 20 Starfleet vessels off the port bow.
Daniel: Okay. That's great. Set a course.
Rock: Yes sir.
Daniel: We have to save that planet... whoever they are. That's probably not important.
Red: Sir, the cube has stopped and is heading towards us!!
Daniel: All stop. Raise shields.

(The Borg cube fires upon Phoenix-X. Everyone leans left and right)
Gotens: Red alert!
Daniel: Return Fire
Armond: Firing.
Daniel: Bring us about. Mark 120 mark 626
Rock: Half of the Federation ships are losing shields!
Armond: Shields down to 70%.
Daniel: Activate phasers on a rotating module frequency.
Rock: Sir, two Federation vessels destroyed. The Enterprise is hailing the fleet.
#Picard: I have taken command of the fleet, fire on the following coordinates. On my command... FIRE.
(Ships begin firing upon the Borg vessel)
Daniel: What!? I don't want no shiny headed human telling me what to do!
(The crew looks at him)
Daniel: Oh, just do it.

(On the Xena)
Aeris: Take us about.
Wendy: Captain, the Borg cube is accelerating again.
Wing: It must be heading towards that unidentified planet.
Aeris: Stay with it as much as possible. That cube can travel at transwarp... I want our best weapons on those coordinates.
Kuri: Yes, Captain.

(On the Enterprise)
Picard: Fire the quantum torpedoes.

(On the Prometheus)
Styles: Prepare multi-vector attack mode.

(On the Defiant)
Worf: Fire phasers.

(On the Phoenix-X)
Daniel: Keep it in range. Fire like a crazy person.
Rock: Yes sir.
Armond: The Borg cube has stopped firing, it's--
(The Borg cube suddenly explodes)
Gotens: Helm--!
Rock: Moving outta ra--!
(The whole ship shakes roughly! Everyone falls to the floor. Gotens gets up and checks the pulse on BOB)
Gotens: BOB, are you alright?
(BOB sits up)
BOB: I'm fine.
(Gotens walks to the screen to see what's going on. Debris is everywhere. Suddenly a starship in visual collides with a large piece of Borg debris and explodes)
Gotens: Oh, man.
BOB: Commander, Ensign Rob and Lieutenant Wang are dead.
Gotens: Lieutenant Rock at Helm is dead too.
BOB: Commander--
Gotens: Don't worry, I'm an experienced pilot.
Armond: Commander, there are casualties all over the ship. There are leaks, oxygen losses, and-- Internal sensors just went offline.
Gotens: But we still have external?
Armond: Affirmative.
Daniel(gets up): We should go to DS9.
Gotens: I'm on it.
(Gotens takes the Helm)
Daniel: Armond, see if you can find any other Federation vessels and tell them to head back to Deep Space 9.
Armond: Aye, sir.

(On the Xena)
Aeris: Take us back to Deep Space 9. Engage.
Kuri: Captain, the Phoenix-X.
Aeris: Hail them. --Everything's under control here. There?
*Daniel(on screen): Yes, we have things under control here.
Aeris: Night, good to see you alive.

(On the Phoenix-X)
Gotens: Thanks Aeris, take care of the ship.

(On the Xena)
Aeris: Sure will. Aeris out.

(On the Phoenix-X)
Daniel: Well that's a victory, eh?
Gotens: If you can call it that.
Daniel: Tell me about it. What planet were they trying to assimilate again?
Gotens: The Tree Species planet, sir.
Daniel: That was a close one.
Gotens: Yeah. I'm glad BOB was okay.
Ensign Dan: Captain--
Daniel: You again? You're relieved!! That felt good. --Whoever Ensign you are, I need a count on the casualties and a count on who are still alive.
Ensign Whoever: There are 200 people still alive and I can't count that high to how many people dead.
Daniel: I need to talk to the director of the Academy when I have the chance. They let the dumbest people pass these days.
Ensign Dan: Oh Buck up!
Daniel: You--
Ensign Dan: I know, I know... I'm relieved.
