I believe I won't be here much longer; it has been an interesting experience, to say the very least. My thanks to those who made myself and the other visitors welcome. I believe a few notes are in order, before my time here comes to a close.
Regarding Shinzon - he is a troubled individual, but he has the potential to be much more. I have no doubt that he can be redeemed, but I expect the path will not be a smooth one - and I must apologize to those that may suffer for it.
[Private to Kirk]
[Just leaving a note, either for Bones!Jim or Jim!Jim or both.] I was informed that he tried to drown you; you have my sincerest apologies, Captain, and my advice: do not provoke him. I do not doubt that you are capable of handling yourself, but Shinzon is arrogant, and has a temper. I hope he does not take it out on you agian.
[Private to Kahlan]
If you will accept my advice, Ms. Amnell, be wary of Shinzon. He is not known for his manners. He attacked a member of my crew, and hearing of his actions with Captain Kirk leaves me unsettled. I believe you will do well by him, but he can be dangerous. Be on guard around him.
[Private for Shinzon]
I did not lie. You and I have the same potential, Shinzon - not to be the same being, but to lead full and separate lives. You are better than you've allowed yourself to become. You've the potential to be a great man - a great human. You are human, denying that will not help you. You used to look to the stars and dream, Shinzon - do not let that slip from your fingers.
[Aren't you loving those dulcet tones of
Patric Stewart Captain Picard? He's just quietly musing to himself.]
I have never been on a ship quite this large; it is a most interesting vessel that Shinzon's found himself on.
I understand that this is a prison ship of sorts; and that the Prime Directive apparently holds no sway here.
Though how it cannot-- My name is Jean-Luc Picard, Captain of the starship Enterprise-E. I am...here for Shinzon. For the time being, I hope.
(((OOC: So lol, I have no idea how to play Picard, so you get to put up with my suck. :[ Sorry. <3)))
[Sounding quite disgusted] Am I to understand that even in this 'enlightened' age, prison ships still exist? Barbarism knows no cultural bounds, clearly.
[He falls silent a moment, and the only sounds are very faint breathing, before continuing quietly.] I died. I
don't understand died. This should not be possible - even the degeneration has--
[Another lapse of silence; with some sharp, unsettled movements. When he starts again, it's angrily.] Who saw fit to involve themselves? Whose doing is this?
Our destiny was complete. This elusive admiral seems to have inserted his attention where it was not wanted before. Nothing gives him the right to play at being a god.
This is unacceptable.
...Where is my ship?
