"Three Wishes" Segment Two
28 EXT. SPACE-VOYAGER (OPTICAL)
The ship is no longer orbiting the planet, but is now at warp.
29 INT. SICKBAY-MED LAB ON DOCTOR
Looking very confused as he attempts to finish his experiments. He hears the doors SWISH open and is relieved that there is something else to do.
30 NEW ANGLE-SICKBAY DOOR ON PARIS AND TORRES
We follow as the two of them hurry in, looking very worried. They stop right in front of the Doctor. The door SWISHES closed.
Doctor, B'Elanna and I have
become telepathically linked
What he means to say is…we were
coming back from parasailing and
--all of the sudden I could read
A frightening thought indeed,
The doctor comes around the console and takes his TRICORDER. He begins to SCAN Paris and Torres. Suddenly he stops, realizing that he doesn't remember how. He becomes panicked.
I…I…oh, no (beat)…not again…
Doctor… what is it?
I…I can't seem to remember how
to conduct a scan…
You haven't been making changes
to your program again, have you,
We follow Torres over to a diagnostic console.
31 DIAGNOSTIC CONSOLE- TORRES (OPTICAL)
She WORKS, TAPPING commands into the terminal. We see INFORMATION SCROLLING DOWN. When she discovers that the Doctor's program is no longer there, she looks up with a shocked expression on her face.
I don't know how this is possible…
but Doctor, your program is no longer
in the computer…
You're right that's not possible.
32 RESUME SCENE
If his program is gone how is
he still here?!
(not looking up)
I don't know…
Well, as you can see Lieutenant,
I am alive and well…
only I…I… seem to have lost my
END ACT ONE
33 INT. SICKBAY DIAGNOSTIC CONSOLE (OPTICAL)
We follow Paris as he walks over and joins Torres at the console.
It looks like "our" little problem
will have to wait…
Torres looks at him worried- and then WORKS the console again.
…the medical data base is still
but there is definitely no
sign of the Doctor's program.
34 NEW ANGLE- DOCTOR
He cries out and doubles over in pain.
What is it? What's the matter?
I have the most horrible (beat)
(realizing what he is saying)
35 INCLUDE TORRES AND PARIS
As they both rush back over to him. Paris picks up the Doctor's TRICORDER and SCANS him. Now it's Paris' turn to be surprised. Torres and Paris look at each other…
What do you mean he's human?!
Let me see that tricorder…
Torres snatches the TRICORDER and SCANS the Doctor, confirming the readings. She gasps in disbelief.
Well…add this to rest of the
strange day I've been having today…
(beat) it looks like the reason
the Doc's program is gone is because-
(off his look)
it's no longer necessary…
This is unacceptable! How am I
supposed to perform my duties?
And, how is he going to get "you"
out of "my" mind?!
The Doctor winces again in pain
Mr. Paris…what is wrong with me?
(a beat, then whining)
I am experiencing pain in my
Paris looks at the tricorder again.
Doc…I hate to break this to you
I can't be hungry…I'm a hologram!
After thinking over the implications of the Doctor not being able to practice medicine, Torres bursts out of her thoughts.
How could this have happened? How
could the Doctor be human?
How are we suddenly telepathically
linked? (beat) I don't know, B'Elanna!
There is a tense moment, but then something passes between them and Torres backs down.
(calming slightly; thinking..)
I guess some sort of sub-space
field could explain our situation,
but the Doctor… He can't just turn
into a (beat) a human being!
Paris TAPS his com badge.
Paris, to Captain Janeway…
JANEWAY'S COM VOICE
Yes, Tom, what is it?
Ah…Captain, (beat) you'd better come
to sickbay, we have a small problem…
Close on a worried Doctor…
37 INT. TUVOK'S QUARTERS
Tuvok has just entered and found that someone who looks like his wife T'PEL is in his quarters.
(long beat) how is this possible?
Tuvok, to security, send a team
to my quarters immediately. We have
(to T'Pel, he is very curt)
Who are you?
I…am T'Pel, your wife, Tuvok.
But it is not logical that I am
here with you… you are thousands
of light years from Vulcan…
You are not on Vulcan, this is
the Federation Starship Voyager…
Losing a measure of his control, he grips her shoulders.
…you are obviously an alien life
form who for some reason has
taken the form of my wife, T'Pel.
Your logic is still flawless, my
husband…but I am in fact T'Pel…
This is not logical…you cannot be
Pleading, trying to convince him…
Just moments ago, I was standing in
our home on Vulcan…there was a
brilliant flash of light…and then
I was here…with you…
Tuvok wants to believe her…the Pon Farr is beginning to take hold in earnest. But he pushes her slightly and walks several steps away.
Mind meld with me Tuvok, and you
will know that what I say is true.
Camera closes on him as he quickly steps back to her. He clutches her face in a mind meld.
My mind to your mind…my thoughts
to your thoughts…
40 NEW ANGLE- DOOR TO TUVOK'S QUARTERS
Door SWISHES open and two security guards burst into the room, phasers drawn.
Tuvok breaks the meld and turns to look at the guards…stunned…
Stand down, Ensign, I have the
situation under control…
You may go…
look at each other they have never seen Tuvok act this way. But they know better than to ask any questions. They wisely exit and the door SWISHES closed.
42 TUVOK AND T'PEL
Tuvok turns back to T'Pel.
You are indeed my wife (beat)
43 EXT. SPACE-VOYAGER (STOCK OPTICAL)
44 INT. SICKBAY-SURGICAL BED
The Doctor is sitting on the bed. Janeway is on one side of him; Paris and Torres are standing on the other.
Let me get this straight…
the Doctor is "human"?
