Procedural nitpick: Mayweather shouldn't be giving orders - or requests - to anyone on the bridge if the captain's there unless he has explicit authorization to do so, meaning the captain has to say something like "Helmsman has the conn." Otherwise he's overstepping his bounds.

Other than that, a bonny installment! Good on ye!

Oh, and another suggestion for Prof. Partridge! Fergie:

Thanks for the advice, I've made a couple of slight changes to the dialogue to reflect that. To be honest though I'll probably be making that mistake again. Mind you, Trek itself rarely got procedure right, so at least I'm in good company!

Fergie as Polly Partridge? Intriguing suggestion. Can she do a British accent?
It's debatable whether she can act at all. Her big role was in Planet Terror.

But if she has to be British, why not Billie Piper?http://images.google.com/images?hl=e...q=billie+piper
