Out of his shell

What if they never served on the same ship and never became the legendary crew Star Fleet regarded? What if they all met at a nursing home? What if it Spock was in a shell of his own? Much like Jim would be. And all it took was McCoy to be there to tow them both out as much as he will regret it.

Inspired by Jim Carrey's second parody of Star Trek in living color.


23. 23

It was August 1st. Spock was wheeling Jim down the hall heading somewhere in the nursing home. Spock had seen a grinning McCoy earlier leaving with two Star Fleet officers with a limp in his right leg. McCoy said he would be back by two weeks, or less depending how the trial went. Spock was initially puzzled what he was talking about. He would inquire what the doctor was participating in the later hours of the day. Jim was radiating with energy asking questions such as, "What else do you have planned that no one knows?", "Are going to the piano room?", and "When is your birthday?"

"This is what I have in mind," Spock came over to the console device near the holodeck doors. "It is only logical that we engage on a fantasy."

"What about chess?" Jim asked.

"Playing chess long enough gets boring for humans," Spock said, his fingers flying on the keypad. "I specifically developed this holo-adventure for the two of us. I assume you might have fun being Professor X." Spock lowered his hand linking his hand behind his back. "A wheelchair bound man with power."

"Wait, you meant Cherik?" Jim asked.

"Affirmative." Spock said.

"That pairing? The one with Sir Ian and Sir Stewart?" Jim asked.

"Affirmative." Spock said.

"Which era?" Jim said.

"Any you would choose. The characters have been set." The doors opened into the building. Professor X's school for the young and gifted adolescents. Spock wheeled Jim into the lobby where no one was there. They came to a stop. "It only needs the players and its era to begin."

"Let's start with chess." Jim said.

"Which era, and scene." Spock said.

"The one where they are young men." Jim said.

"Computer," Spock said. "Alter our appearances to the viewers that we are in our late teens. Initiate Program Mystique. Add in walking feature to fool the eyes of the holodeck regarding Captain James T. Kirk's disability."

"Changes have been done." The computer replied.

"Shall we?" Spock asked, by the side of the captain.

"I have always wanted to emulate Professor X!" Jim said, cheerfully.

"Computer," Spock said. "Begin Mystigue's backstory."

The holodeck doors closed behind them.
