Starship: Supermarket

15 06 2010

On Saturday night I will be working my very last shift as a Fortinos cashier as I will be leaving to go on where no man has gone before, blah blah blah. Most nights, I operate as the “second in command”, the pickup girl to the head cashier. The William Riker position.

Saturday night will be different though, because for the first time I will be taking control of the Enterprise and will have to lead the team. As when Jean-Luc Picard was assimilated by the Borg and became Locutus of Borg, my commanding officers, all the head cashiers, will be out of reach and unable to assist in our mission.

The Crew: Wesley Crusher (my brother), the bridge staff (the cashiers), Ten-Forward/Guinan (hot foods+ bean roast), medical (customer service), engineering (grocery + backroom), Worf the tactical officer (the closing manager GF), and Counsellor Troi (Sukhi). It will be a challenge but I do believe in our success.
