Will the future still be swinging?
I feel like the 60's is coming to a close. I've had a good run and could go on like this forever. But times seem to be changing. The Starfleet ombudsman has contacted me about charges of "improper behavior" with a young ensign. Plus admiral Reuter is angry about how I supposedly "Dishonored" the Tholian ambassador during negotiations.
I'm not sure I understand this new universe. Seems like if Starfleet didn't want us to touch the broads on this boat they wouldn't make their skirts so short. Hell, this is a five year mission and I'm a red-blooded American - oops I mean "Federation" officer. No one has ever complained before, or not in a way that anyone cared about.
And as to the ambassador thing, sometimes you handle these aliens the best way you can given the tools you've got on hand Those Tholians are hotblooded and asking for it anyway. I'm spreading goodwill throughout the galaxy baby, and sometimes I shoot from the hip Besides, once you go green, for colored you're keen.
