"Three Wishes" Segment Three
Yes, Captain. I can't explain it
but he is now a fully functional
Unfortunately, he's no longer a
Doctor. And the EMH program has
disappeared from the data base.
Do we have any clue as to what
Janeway walks several steps away…then more to herself…
…and of course at this point
there is no changing him back.
Not that we know of…
The more he thinks about being human, the more he likes it.
Captain…if I may? I have always
wished that I could be a flesh
and blood being. (beat) I don't
think this is such a bad thing.
Not for you maybe! But what about
me? And what does Voyager do
without a Doctor?
Your training is coming along
very nicely Mr. Paris, I'm sure
with a little more effort on your
part you'll make a fine physician.
46 NEW ANGLE-PARIS AND TORRES
Paris is about to say more, but is interrupted by a silent communication from Torres. He looks sharply at her; she is trying not to laugh at him.
That's not funny B'Elanna…
I didn't say a word…
He shoots her another look after which she immediately stops laughing.
Janeway holds up her hand…
All right, you two, that's
Janeway walks around the bed to stand by Paris.
…even if Tom could complete
the necessary medical training,
it would take months. That would
leave us without a Doctor and my
best pilot for too long. I'm sorry,
that's just not acceptable.
48 INCLUDE TORRES
Captain, until we can figure out
how this happened, we don't have
much of a choice. (beat) I think
our top priority should be finding
out what caused this and fixing it.
Takes a step toward her, puts a hand on her shoulder.
B'Elanna, I want you and Harry
to run full sensor sweeps of the
area. Look for any anomalies or
alien technology that could have
49 NEW ANGLE-JANEWAY AND PARIS
Janeway turns to Paris
Tom, unfortunately, you and
Ens. Wildman, will have to cover
sickbay for a while. I'll have
Chakotay shorten your duty shifts
on the bridge to help accommodate
the additional time.
Captain, perhaps with Mr. Paris'
help I could re-learn some of the
skills I have lost?
Paris interrupts Janeway…
(not happy with what he's
Wait a minute…what about my telepathic
link with B'Elanna? It's a little
(beat) distracting to say the least.
Perhaps some kind of neural inhibitor
We tried that Captain…it didn't work…
Then I guess you're stuck with
each other until we can figure out
how to break the link…
Paris and Torres exchange looks of disbelief
I think I'm feeling…tired…
It's hard to say, never having
experienced fatigue, but I have
an overwhelming urge to lie down…
(beat) Captain, perhaps I could be
assigned temporary quarters?
(eyeing him dubiously)
I'll see what I can do, Doctor…
Paris and Torres roll their eyes at the Doctor's whining.
50 INT. VOYAGER-TUVOK'S QUARTERS
He is pacing…he seems unsure of what to do next.
The Captain, must be informed
immediately of your presence on the
Of course, Tuvok… but do not delay
overlong… we must purge you of the
He stops his pacing at her words and touches her cheek, with an almost feral look on his face.
(he gains control)
But protocol must be observed.
I will not allow these (beat) urges
to override my duty…
Tuvok TAPS his com badge
Tuvok to Captain Janeway, could
you please report to my quarters?
END ACT TWO
51 EXT. SPACE-VOYAGER (OPTICAL)
We pass the ship from the bottom and circle around to the top as it flies at warp.
Captain's personal log: We still
have no explanation for the
strange happenings aboard ship.
But I have to say I'm secretly
relieved that Tuvok will not have to
endure the Pon Farr alone.
52 INT. VOYAGER-BRIEFING ROOM
Camera pans as Torres, Paris and Doctor file in and sit. SEVEN OF NINE, Janeway, CHAKOTAY and KIM are already seated.
In the mean time, we are making
every effort to find the cause
of Tom and B'Elanna's link and
the Doctor's sudden case of humanity.
53 NEW ANGLE -INCLUDE VIEW PORT (OPTICAL)
Janeway looks around to make sure everyone is seated.
Harry…have your initial scans
Let's try initiating a [tech] scan
and see if anything shows up.
We were going to do that first thing
this morning, Commander.
SEVEN OF NINE
Since our previous scans have proven
negative, perhaps we should pursue
the possibility that these three
events are somehow linked.
Yes… you should compare notes
to see if there are any similarities
in what happened to you.
Tell me what you were doing right
before you noticed a change.
I was working on an experiment…
you and that strange little
Ambassador- Mr. Wrill- had just
left sickbay. (beat) Right after
that I experienced what I thought
was just a minor power fluctuation…
SEVEN OF NINE
It was obviously much more than
54 NEW ANGLE ON PARIS AND TORRES
Communicating telepathically, they are stealing glances at each other trying not to laugh. Torres elbows him and he can't help it, he laughs out loud.
Are we interrupting you,
No, no…not at all, sorry,
Kim who was observing the interplay, also tries not to laugh.
Sorry…(beat) this telepathy thing
takes some getting used to…
Janeway pins them both with a quelling stare.
Mr. Paris, would you care to
tell us what happened right before
you were linked with B'Elanna?
Well…ah…we were walking back
to my quarters after Parasailing
on the holodeck…
Torres interrupts finishing his thought for him. They're getting good at this…
…in fact we had just left you
and that curious little Ambassador
Paris interrupts her…
By the time we got to my quarters-
Looks at Torres.
55 CHAKOTAY AND JANEWAY (OPTICAL)
They look at each other…the connection with Wrill is made.
