Second Officer’s personal log, stardate 44390.1 - Record entry for transmission to Commander Bruce Maddox, Cybernetics Division, Daystrom Institute.
Dear Commander Maddox,
In reference to your most recent letter, I agree that your study lacks sufficient primary source information on my programming and operation. Therefore, in response to your request, this correspondence will include a complete record of my activities during a normal day, with particular emphasis on my perceptions of friendship.
It is all a question of probabilities. Quite simple, really, if one bets with any sequential consistency. The combinations totaling seven or eleven have considerable value when achieved on the primary attempt. With eight variations possible to create those totals, the likelihood of those totals occurring is not significant.
You’ve got a way to keep me on your side
You give me cause for love that I can’t hide
For you I know I’d even try to turn the tide
Because you’re mine, I walk the line
The fortunes of the world will rise and fall but here in this kingdom we will endure.
Okay I’m not even a Star Trek fan but that’s beautiful.
"Nick running into something because he’s too busy watching his bendy boyfriend." Oh my God yes and Kelly just bursts out laughing and tries to go at Nick for breaking his focus but he can’t stop laughing to look even remotely upset and Nick is just rubbing at his face and shoulders and wondering if it’s gonna leave a bruise and wow he really shouldn’t walk this fast around his boat specially if Kelly is around, it’s an accident waiting to happen.
