[[Alrighty, it's time for everyone's favorite Scotsman to take his turn. We'll be falling back on the old 'Enterprise becomes sentient, plays matchmaker' routine. I'm not quite sure how this is going to work itself out, but I'll be playing both Scotty and the Enterprise herself. I suppose you can just post your as characters, interact for a couple posts, and then I'll step in and, dunno, lock you two into a supply closet or summat.]]

Ion storms. It was always ion storms.

Somehow, sub-atomic particles always managed to flit their way in to each and every situation and wreak havoc. It seemed to Scotty that every other week his beautiful ship was converging with parallel universes, mucking about in the past, and generally fucking with every law of physics.

Most of the time he could rectify the problem before it got too out of hand - sometimes the crew didn't even notice the difference.

But as Scotty stood there, slack-jawed staring at the computer console, he decided that today would be different.

Against the shiny white plasma screen blinked seven words in dark, stylistic text:

'Would you like to play a game?'

And yes, he really, really would.

"Of course this isn't funny!" the ghost cried. "I'm dead, lad; do you think I go around crackin' jokes?"

Scotty winced - he had slipped, just a bit. Hopefully Michaels wouldn't notice.

Alex just shook his head. "Maybe the captain was right and I am cracking up. I've been working too hard. A few too many sleepless nights, a few too many papers and studies and periodicals. Too little sleep, too much work, not enough..relaxation. That's all. I'm imagining this. I've probably fallen asleep at my station, and this is all a really weird dream."

"If this is a dream," Scotty posed, "why don't you just wake up?"

He sent another course of electricity, the sharp light jumping from the nearest console to the man's body.

He yelped at the sting and shook his hand. It was tingling from the shock, nerves buzzing.

"I-- I don't know. Maybe it's just part of the dream.." He slid down the wall to sit on the floor, knees pulled to his chest and his arms wrapped around them.

"Or maybe I'm just...going insane. I'm in a room by myself. Talking to myself. I've gone mad. That's all."
