The Eye of Ramn
(Parts 1  2  3  4)

Once again I'll say that the Game Cubes belong to Reboot, but the Slayer thing is an idea of mine. Too be honest I can't remember where the idea for this episode came from, but I think it was just an idea of mine.

Last time on B4 Fifth Voyager
"So, erm, who was that?" Tom asked.

"None of your business," Jessie replied.

"Was he your boyfriend or something?" Tom asked.

Jessie's eyes shot up at him again, this time with an even more ferocious look in her eyes. Before Tom knew what was happening, he was lying on the ground with a huge black eye.

"Believe it or not, but they caused the most trouble on the Marquis ship. And no, they're just best friends," Chakotay replied.

"Hmm, a boy and girl that are best friends. They either get involved, fall out with each other and then kill each other probably. If either doesn't happen then that guy must be gay," Tom said.

Chakotay glanced at Tuvok. "What?"

"An old theory of mine, a lot of my friends agreed. Commander, male and female friendships never stay, unless one is gay. It's a fact," Tom replied.

"Really, James did mention that he was accused of it at school," Chakotay muttered.

"I told you he was the gay one," Tom said.

Chakotay rolled his eyes. "Tom, your theory is pre-20th century. And if I were you, I wouldn't say he was gay to his face," Chakotay said.

"Am I missing something, did she just call you Ensign?" Ian asked.

"Yeah, he's been promoted for god only knows why," Jessie replied as she and James sat down at Ian and co's table.

"You've been here for a few weeks. Your parents brought you in here because a friend of yours has been trying to destroy you mentally. You were believing that you were a character in a TV show."

Faye shook her head. "What TV show?"

"Fifth Voyager. You're an actor for it. You got the part over your friend. He's been trying to destroy you. Ever since the filming for the second episode started, you started thinking you were your actual character. That's when we lost you," the guy replied.

"You've been in a daze for 2 weeks," the woman said.

Faye shook her head again. "Are you trying to say that Voyager isn't a real ship, and the people there aren't either?"

"Yes. The crew were only the characters your fellow actors play," the guy said.

"Well basically she's dreaming, but she can't wake up. All I have to do is give her the right amount of medical technobabble and she'll wake up," the Doctor replied.

"I agree, let's go," Doctor Johnson said.

Johnson and Fuller looked at their patient, she was lying on the ground. They both knelt down and checked her pulse.

"Oh dear god, we've lost her!" Doctor Johnson yelled. Everyone gasped, well except H.

"You collapsed in your quarters. Whatever you experienced after that was only a dream," the Doctor replied.

"Ok, are you going to tell me what it is?" Chakotay asked.

"No, I'm leaving that to Episode 5, Season 3 of ordinary Fifth Voyager needs to get to it's 2nd episode before I say anything," Kathryn said.

And now the conclusion
The Ready Room:
Jessie and Chakotay were sitting opposite Kathryn. She was drinking her 10th cup of coffee. She grinned at them both.

"Remember, if there's any trouble, you're back in Engineering," Kathryn said. She tried to look serious but she was too hyper to control herself.

"Don't worry, Captain, Jessie behaves on duty," Chakotay said, while trying not to laugh at his sarcasm.

"Good, now Jessie you can leave. I want to drink my coffee, and then some coffee ice cream," Kathryn said in her hyper voice.

Jessie stood up and she left the room.

Jessie thought, "I really don't like those two, I've got an idea."

"Janeway, don't you think you've had enough coffee?" Chakotay asked.

"No, I have not!" Kathryn yelled.

"Ok then, I'll go," Chakotay muttered. He stood up and he walked out.

Kathryn thought, "I need more coffee, I want coffee ice cream, and then I want coffee sandwiches... with a coffee milkshake. Ooh, maybe coffee flavoured jam on toast."

The next day, on the Bridge:
"I heard something about you," Tom said as he leaned on the Engineering console.

"Like what," James muttered.

He thought, "I wish I had a Paris Voodoo Doll, and maybe a dagger."

"About you and Jessie," Tom said.

"Not this kind of crap again," James muttered.

"I heard that there was a brief encounter in the turbolift, if you know what I mean," Tom said, and he winked.

"That wasn't us, we actually were the ones who caught Thompson and O'Hara kissing in the turbolift," James said.

"Oh really, that's not what Thompson told me," Tom said.

"Tom, who's your best friend?" James asked.

"Harry, why?" Tom replied.

"Do you kiss him?" James asked.

"Of course not!" Tom exclaimed.

"I don't kiss my best friend either. Thompson and O'Hara have been dating since college," James said.

"I didn't know that," Tom muttered.

"Now go away, I'm getting sick of you already," James said.

"Janeway was hyper before, and she told me she found an old college report. She said that you two were involved back then," Tom said.

"We were just pretending, now go away," James said.

"Oooh, did you kiss her?" Tom asked.

"I'm not telling you," James replied.

"You did, didn't you. And I bet you still do now," Tom said.

"No I don't, now go and kiss Harry," James said.

"Jessie and James sitting in a tree..." Tom started to sing, badly. He was interrupted when James punched him in the face, he fell backwards onto the floor.

"Ow, my hand. What a waste," James muttered and he stood up. Everyone was crowding around Tom.

Tuvok walked up to James. "Why did you do that for, Ensign?"

"He was singing," James replied.

"Yeah, I can relate," Harry muttered.

"Somebody beam him to Sickbay, looks like he has a fractured nose," Tuvok said.

The Bridge, 2 hours later:
Harry and Tuvok were at their stations. Claire was at the science station. Lee was sitting at the helm since Tom was STILL in Sickbay. Everything was nice and quiet, and no one knew why.

Deck 2:
Jessie and James were heading towards the turbolift, they both looked a little hyper. They both had bags over their shoulders. The turbolift door opened.

"I don't believe this," James muttered.

Thompson and O'Hara were at it again, in the turbolift.

"Get a room!" Jessie yelled.

O'Hara and Thompson stopped what they were doing, and they quickly ran out of the turbolift. James and Jessie stepped inside it.

A few seconds later they arrived on the Bridge. Everyone was so busy they didn't notice. They quietly headed over to the command chairs. Jessie sat down in Kathryn's, and James sat down in Chakotay's.

Jessie dumped her bag onto the floor, and she took a pen out. She stood back up, and she headed over to James. She sat down on his knee and she began drawing on his forehead.

Lee turned around. "What the hell are you two doing?"

"Shhh," they both whispered. Lee turned around again.

"Sit still, it's going all wonky," Jessie whispered. She finished a few seconds later. "That'll do," she said quietly, and she briefly kissed him on the cheek. They both noticed Lee was watching them again.

"What?" James said questioningly.

Lee shook his head and he turned around again.

Jessie pulled some hairclips out of her pocket, and she handed them to James.

"I really hate to know what you're doing," Lee muttered.

"Shut up," Jessie said quietly.

Lee turned around and he quietly laughed. Jessie's hair was put up high, it looked very much like a messier version of Kathryn's hair.

Kathryn and Chakotay walked out of the turbolift.

Jessie quickly sat down in Kathryn's chair, and she pulled a flask out of the bag.

"What are you two doing in our chairs!" Kathryn exclaimed.

"Your chairs? Since when were they your chairs, Crewman," Jessie said.

"Yeah, we're the ones in charge around here," James said.

"Get me some more coffee, Chakotay!" Jessie yelled James' way.

"Get it yourself, I'm going to have a banana," James said, and he pulled out a bunch of bananas from his bag.

Kathryn started fuming.

"Oh my god, my hair's getting messed up," Jessie said.

"Janeway, quit complaining, it's always a mess," James said.

"How dare you! Get me some coffee ice cream!" Jessie yelled.

"Get it yourself," James muttered.

Kathryn was ready to explode. Chakotay was trying to keep a straight face. Harry and Claire were now watching the scene, and they couldn't help but laugh.

"In my Ready Room, NOW!" Kathryn yelled. The now part made her sound like she was being possessed by the devil.

"Yes, that is a good idea. Maybe Chakotay can come with me if you know what I mean," Jessie said.

James and Jessie stood up and they headed towards the Ready Room.

"What did you say before!" Kathryn yelled at Chakotay.

"I'm not saying anything," Chakotay said, with a smirk planted on his face.

Kathryn and Chakotay went into the Ready Room.

Jessie and James were sitting on the sofa, making kissing noises. After they saw Kathryn and Chakotay, they burst out laughing.

"How dare you," Jessie said while still laughing.

"Oh great, now everyone will know about us," James said, sounding surprisingly serious.

"Ok, you've had your fun. Stop it right now!" Kathryn yelled.

"I'd better go, Janeway. Date tonight?" James asked with a smirk on his face.

"Oh yes, Chakotay. Make sure you have plenty of coffee ice cream," Jessie replied, and she started laughing again.

James didn't waste anytime in getting out of the room, but he was laughing as he did so. Jessie was still laughing, she laughed harder when her hair fell down.

"Who do you think you are!" Kathryn yelled.

"I thought I'd made myself clear. I mean with the hair and all," Jessie replied.

"Nice hair, Jessie," Chakotay said.

"Thanks, I did the tattoo for James," Jessie said and she stood up.

"Chakotay!" Kathryn exclaimed.

"Oh my date's in an hour. I'd better go and wash up," Jessie said and she headed towards the door.

"Are you really going on a date with him?" Chakotay asked.

Jessie stopped at the door, and she turned around. "It's just part of the act, so no." She walked out.

Kathryn continued to fume, so Chakotay stepped out of the room as quickly as he could.

The next day, Deck 4:
Jessie and James rushed down the corridor. They eventually reached the turbolift. The doors opened and once again they saw Thompson and O'Hara doing their usual thing inside.

"Don't you two ever stop?" Jessie moaned.

Thompson and O'Hara stopped. They turned to face James and Jessie.

"That's rich coming from a girl who kissed a certain guy on the cheek just yesterday," O'Hara said as she looked towards James.

"Oh please, what's a little affection between friends. At least I'm not sticking my tongue down his throat," Jessie said.

"Oh my god! You have a disgusting imagination!" O'Hara exclaimed.

"I don't need to imagine anything, everywhere I go you two are there kissing. It just makes me sick," Jessie said.

"Why don't you get a room?" James asked.

"We prefer the turbolift," Thompson replied.

"Find another one, we need to get to the Bridge," James said.

Thompson and O'Hara sulked, and they left the turbolift.

The Bridge:
Lee was talking to Tom at the helm. Kathryn and Chakotay were siting in their chairs, talking. Tuvok and Harry were working.

James and Jessie rushed onto the Bridge. Lee laughed at them.

"What are you laughing at?" Jessie asked.

"Janeway's mad with you," Lee replied.

Kathryn stood up and she turned to face the new arrivals. She put her hands on her hips and tried to look menacing. "Why are you 20 minutes late?"

"Oh, I don't want you to ruin my birthday," Jessie muttered.

"It's your birthday today?" Kathryn said questioningly.

"How old are you, 40?" Lee sniggered. Jessie glared at the younger teen, he cowered.

"This doesn't explain why you were late," Kathryn said.

"I lost track of time, okay," Jessie said.

"James?" Chakotay said questioningly.

"Busy," James said.

"Doing what?" Kathryn asked.

"None of your business," James replied.

Kathryn shook her head. "Get to your stations."

Meanwhile on an alien planet:
A young girl walked into a large building. She went over to an older guy.

"Well Salia, did you give the bracelet to a member of the crew?" the guy asked.

"Yes, the One did buy it off me," the girl, Salia, replied.

"That is perfect, he should give it to a member of his crew. Salia, you will have to be ready," the guy said.

They both heard a strange noise.

"Ohno, not again," Salia said.

"Let's hope that you succeed, or we're doomed for sure," the guy said.

They looked out the window. They saw a huge cube shaped object land on top of a couple of buildings.


End of Part I

Part II


Later that night, the Mess Hall:
It was 10 minutes into a birthday party, and there were already some drunks. None of them were main characters, so nobody really cared about them.

Tom headed over to Jessie, who was standing on her own.

"Hey, Jess," Tom said.

"Jess? Getting awfully friendly aren't we?" Jessie said sarcastically.

"Gee, sorry," Tom muttered.

"No, it's ok," Jessie said.

"I was just thinking of what happened in the last episode, and I just want to say sorry," Tom said.

"Sorry? It's ok, almost everyone makes that mistake," Jessie said.

Some drunken crewmembers walked by very clumsily, they pushed Jessie roughly. She stumbled a little, but Tom caught her.

"Watch where you're going!" Tom said loudly at the drunks. The drunks didn't hear him.

"Er, Tom?" Jessie said.

Tom looked back at her. "What?"

"I'm ok, you can let go of me now," Jessie said.

Tom tried not to blush, and he let go of her.

James came over with a drink in his hands.

"Hey Jess," he said.

"Hey," Jessie said.

"Hi James," Tom said in an attempt to sound polite.

James rolled his eyes. "Yeah, whatever."

"Did I do something wrong?" Tom asked.

James just shrugged in response.

"Oookay, I'll be off," Tom muttered and he walked off.

"What's wrong with you?" Jessie asked.

"Nothing," James replied.

"Then why were you like that with Tom?" Jessie asked.

"No reason," James replied.

Jessie groaned, and she walked away.

Meanwhile Sid was telling a story to a group of drunks, and non drunks as well.

"Then I climbed over the side of the mountain. May I remind you, I didn't have a rope. Anyway, I climbed down, but I slipped," Sid was saying. Everyone gasped. "I fell several hundred feet, but that's when I realised the safeties were on. I turned them off, and I landed. It was just sooo cool."

"So that's why we're still listening to you blabber on?" Ian asked.

"What?" Sid said questioningly.

"The safeties will have slowed you down a lot, but when you switched them off you didn't have enough time to speed up and go splat. Right?" Ian said.

"That's right. Wanna hear about the time I nearly was killed in a turbolift shaft?" Sid asked.

"Heard it," everyone said.

"Aaaw. I'd better do something else so I can tell you lot about it," Sid said and he walked away.

One hour later:
Almost everyone at the party was drunk now. The only sober crewmembers were Tom, Harry, Chakotay, Kathryn, Thompson and O'Hara.

Tom was talking to the two soppy lovebirds. Harry was drinking a beer. Kathryn and Chakotay were sitting and talking. Everyone else was either dancing stupidly, singing badly, collapsed on the floor, or getting ready to do one of those things.

James gave Jessie a present. She opened it and inside was a small, but strange looking, bracelet.

"This is nice, thanks," Jessie said.

"Glad you like it. Ohno, look over there," James groaned. Jessie looked where he was looking. They were both looking at Thompson and O'Hara.

"What the hell are they doing here, they weren't invited?" Jessie asked.

They both didn't notice that Tom was watching them while drinking a bottle of vodka. Thompson and O'Hara had just left to probably do what they usually do. Harry walked up to him.

"What's the matter, Tom?" Harry asked.

"Harry, I'm in trouble," Tom replied.

"How so?" Harry asked.

"I think I'm in love," Tom replied.

Harry rolled his eyes. "Really, who?" He raised his bottle to take a drink.

"With Jessie," Tom muttered.

Harry nearly choked when he started laughing. Tom stared at him.

"What's so funny?" Tom asked.

"No offense Tom, but you're way out of your league there," Harry replied.

Tom sulked. "It's not like I want anything off her, Harry. At least that's what I try to think. But there she was in my arms."

Harry stared at him in disgust. "You didn't?"

"No of course not! Some drunks just knocked her over a little, that's all. I caught her, and I forget to let go," Tom replied.

"Oh geez, you've got it bad," Harry muttered.

"Why do I do this to myself, I always fall for the one I can't have," Tom said. He finished his bottle of vodka off.

"Drinking yourself stupid isn't going to help," Harry said.

"I think I might ask her out," Tom said in a drunken manner.

"Ohno, you've had too much vodka. It's gotten to your head," Harry said.

"Yeah, maybe you're right," Tom muttered.

Tom and Harry stood in silence, but Tom was still watching Jessie and James. Tom saw the pair hugging each other, and James kissing Jessie on the cheek.

"I've had enough," Tom said.

"What?" Harry said questioningly.

"I'm getting sick of that freak, I'll show him," Tom said. He picked up a bottle of whiskey and he drank some of it.

"Er, that's not such a good idea," Harry stuttered, but it was too late. He headed over towards James and Jessie. James saw Tom and he walked away.

"Hi Jessie," Tom said.

"Are you drunk?" Jessie asked.

"No, of course not," Tom replied, he stumbled a bit but he regained his balance quickly.

"Whatever you say," Jessie said.

"I just want to know something," Tom said.

"Know what?" Jessie asked.

"If he ain't your boyfriend, how come he kissed you before?" Tom asked.

"I dunno, he's just being nice I guess," Jessie replied.

"Nice my a**, I bet if I kissed you, you'd kill me," Tom said in a slurry voice.

"Actually, that is sorta right. Excuse me, my vodka's going flat," Jessie muttered, and she turned around.

Tom clumsily followed Jessie, and he quickly kissed her on the cheek. She glared at him, and then she slapped him, hard. Harry rushed over to the scene.

"Tom, I told you.." Harry said.

"Oh bog off, Harry," Tom said.

James came back over. "What's going on?"

"Ohno, jerk alert," Tom muttered.

"Tom, you really should go to Sickbay. You're way too drunk," Harry said.

"Why should I? I'm not finished here, I originally came over here to get my own back. Now that's just what I'm going to do," Tom said. Harry tried to pull him away, but he failed. Tom then punched James as hard as he could in the face. Harry tried to pull him away still.

"Ok, you done it, let's go," Harry said.

"Oh Tom, you really shouldn't have alcohol, it's bad for your health," Jessie said.

"What do you mean by that?" Tom asked.

Tom's answer was a really hard punch in the face. He fell backwards into a table. Everyone saw what was going on, and they started crowding around.

"Janeway to Security," Kathryn said as she tapped her commbadge.

Tuvok and two other officers quickly arrived.

"Take Lieutenant Paris and Ensign Taylor to the Brig," Kathryn commanded.

Tuvok nodded, and he walked over to Tom. He noticed that Tom once again has a broken nose.

"Captain, Mr Paris requires medical attention," Tuvok said.

"Fine, does James?" Kathryn asked.

Tuvok glanced over at James. "He seems fine, Captain."

"That's not fair, I hit him hard enough," Tom moaned as he was dragged up to his feet.

"Yeah right, you punch like a little baby," James said.

"Take Tom to Sickbay, and take Ensign Taylor to the Brig," Kathryn ordered.

"Aye Captain," Tuvok said. He took a hold of James' arm, and he made him leave the room. The other Security officers helped Tom out of the room.

"I guess Tom will go to the Brig after he's been treated," Jessie muttered.

"No, I think he's learned his lesson. This is the second time he's suffered these injuries off James," Kathryn said.

"So why is James going to the Brig?" Jessie asked.

"He hit a fellow crewmember, obviously," Kathryn replied.

"If that's the case you'd throw Tom in there too," Jessie said.

"You're just punishing James because you have higher expectations of him," Chakotay said.

Kathryn glared at Chakotay, and she elbowed Chakotay hard in the stomach. "That is stupid, don't ever say that again!"

The Ready Room, the next day:
Kathryn was drinking another cup of coffee while she was sitting at her desk. Tom and James were sitting opposite her. Chakotay was standing beside her.

"Let me say that I am appalled at your behaviour. Being drunk is no excuse for your actions," Kathryn said.

"He started it," James muttered.

"Did not," Tom said.

"Don't start that," Chakotay said.

"What I'd like to know is how come he wasn't hurt when I hit him?" Tom asked.

"I don't know," Kathryn said sounding a little proud for some odd reason.

"Captain?" Chakotay said in a warning voice.

"Anyway, Tom you will be working double shifts in Sickbay for a week," Kathryn said.

"Ohno," Tom muttered.

"And, James, you're going to work with Tuvok's security team, for a week," Kathryn said.

"Oh s***," James muttered.

"Make that 2 weeks," Kathryn said.

"Haha, in your face," Tom laughed.

"Tom, make that 2 weeks for you," Kathryn said.

"S***," Tom muttered.

"Three weeks," Kathryn said.

"Oh sh, sugar," Tom said.

"I think you two should go," Chakotay said.

Tom and James didn't argue, they quickly got up and left before they got more punishment.

"You have to be a bit more careful, Janeway," Chakotay said.

"Shut up, Commander. This problem will all be sorted soon," Kathryn said.

"How soon?" Chakotay asked.

"As soon as I can...." Kathryn said. She was cut off by the scene ending.
