    This is for a bit of fun. a bit ago i experimented with writing fanfic-like twitter posts related to Trek. The challege: Write a twitter length fanfic and post it here.

    Ex. "Kirk and crew end up in 2016. Spock becomes addicted to appletinis. Sulu flips off Trump.They don’t stay long." or "Wesley Crusher ascends to another plain of existence. He bumps into the Ancients.They send him back to try again, with style."

    Ceti Alpha VI exploded, as planets have a tendency to do. An uncomfortable reminder that living on the Earth is like sitting on a ticking time bomb. And when the shock shifts the orbit of Venus into Earth's position, the Vulcans who routinely pass through the area were in for a helluva shock, when they tried to land on it.

    The last crewman on the Enterprise sat alone in a room. There was a knock at the door…

    On the outskirts of Nimbus III, Kirk sidles up to Uhura with an unusual request. "Do you mind," he said sheepishly, "stripping down naked and doing a fan dance to distract the guards, outside Paradise City?" Uhura began to laugh, but could see he was deathly serious. "'Get naked,' he says. OK -- let's start over. I've got a better idea: can't you just, like ... throw a rock, or something?" Kirk shook his head and assured her, ".... don't worry, we'll be right by your feet, directly under you, when we take them by surprise."

    The crewman returned to his quarters after a long shift. There was a knock on the door. The closet door.

    EDIT: (Gah I unintentionally copied @Ríu ríu chíu 's post. Originally I had the idea of having a note passed under the door like in an old Far Side cartoon but then thought about a simple knock on the door instead. Sorry Riu Riu Chiu. Unintentional plagiarism...)

    The Borg finally start to use their technology smartly.

    The end.

    No ''young and inexperienced'' security allowed during the teaser briefing! Good plan, Kirk!

    ''This cannot go unpunished,'' Rojan said. ''Hanar...that one. Take him aside. Kelinda.....the female.'' The three white dudes mentally thanked their makers as Rojan prepared the execution, but all remained stoic. Then Shea was restored. What the actual @#$%?, Spock thought. I'll raise my eyebrow to seem ambivalent. In 45 minutes, none of this'll matter. He was right.

    A hive needs a queen, but not The Queen. A queen serves her hive, not the hive the queen. The other queen grows, nourishes by a small collective of drones to grow and kill The old one.

    Commander Seifer entered the holodeck and activated nothing. He just stood there and played scenarios in his head. After 2 hours, his shift was over.
