From:� Satie, Norah, Rear Admiral

To:� Picard, Jean-Luc, Captain

In light of recent actions undertaken by yourself and the Time Lord known as the Doctor on stardate 37141.5 in halting and destroying the Krynoid foliage overrunning the Berengaria VII colony, you are hereby authorized for detached assignment aboard the Doctor’s craft known as the TARDIS, with a full report on all activities while on assignment due to Admiral Gregory Quinn or his successor on stardate 40250.0.

Personal Addendum:� Truthfully, I envy you, Jean-Luc.  I read Dorcy’s journals long ago and dreamed many times of traveling with the Doctor.  Godspeed, Captain.
