Silence does not continue
"Enjoying your silence?" Came Q's voice.
I turn towards the direction of Q.
My eyes dagger towards Q and I really wanted to say 'You!'.
"I suppose not," Q said, with a snap of his fingers. "Try speaking."
"I can't leave now," I said. "I haven't made my goodbyes to Sharuf."
"And the crew," Q said.
"What?" I said. "I didn't befriend anyone."
"You never know what the little things count to different people," Q said.
"Lakota," I said.
"Uh, Lakota who?" Q asks.
"Lakota the Keeshond," I said. "I want to use one of the healing devices to heal a old dog so she won't be leaking because she was spayed as a puppy."
"Ah, you don't trust me to heal a old dog?" Q asks, sounding insulted.
"I don't," I said, getting up. I go over to the counter then pick up a device. "I recall being showed how it works by Doctor Crusher before the Romulans came."
"I would say that is rather convenient," Q said. "But the universe has its ways of resolving things."
"That way Lakota can be inside being lazy and rest by my feet," I said.
"Aw, poor dog," Q said.
"How many times have you bugged the Enterprise and not felt pity?" I ask.
"That was for fun," Q said. "Much different from this given situation of the dog." He folds his arms. "You better make video message for those you've met on this ship before I take you back. OTHER than Sharuf!"
"Program; end survival mode," I said. "Specification: Klingon."
I saw Junior leaning alongside the doorway clipping his nails.
Junior looks exactly like the image on the Star Trek Pedia for his article.
"When you get the video done; you will be in spirit mode," Q said. "Once you've made your goodbye to Sharuf, you will find yourself back on Earth."
"All right," I said. "So I'll start disappearing after I finish the goodbye video."
"Precisely," Q said.
