"Three Wishes" Segment Four
And Tuvok found T'Pel in his
quarters right after he returned
from seeing you and Wrill in the
I think we'd better go back and
have a talk with Ambassador Wrill…
It looks like he wanted more than
just a "tour" of the ship, after
I didn't trust that strange little
man from the minute I laid eyes on
Lt. Paris, plot a course back
to the Galotain home-world.
What do we do in the mean time?
It will take several days to reach

The Doctor smiles and Torres rolls her eyes.
I guess that's all…you're
Everyone gets up - and off.
Standing by the door that is open to the bridge…
(thinks to Torres)
Dinner- tonight…holodeck two…
Still standing by her chair…
1900 hours…don't be late…
Paris flashes a smile as he continues walking on to the bridge…off the moment.
58 EXT. SPACE-VOYAGER (STOCK OPTICAL)
59 INT. VOYAGER-TUVOK'S QUARTERS
Tuvok is sitting at his table. We see him trembling in an effort to control himself. T'Pel approaches and touches his shoulder.
Protocol has been fulfilled…
it is time…
Tuvok stands and faces her.
[appropriate Vulcan phrase]
She holds out her hand, extending two fingers. He does the same and traces his fingers up and over hers.
[appropriate Vulcan phrase]
They repeat the above only she traces his fingers. Tuvok draws T'Pel slowly to him- they share a passionate kiss.
Off the moment…
60 INT. VOYAGER-ENGINEERING (OPTICAL)
View of BLUE PULSING WARP CORE…Torres is working at a
station near the main doors. Kim walks in with a PADD in hand.
Hey, how's it going?
(hands her the PADD)
Please tell me this is the
last of Seven's Astrometric
(she pivots and sits on
on the edge of the console)
If she thinks I am going to
give her one more micron of
…sorry…(beat) she told me to
tell you, the last two reports
would be ready by tomorrow.
(lets out an exasperated gasp)
You'd think I'd be used to her by
now…(beat) Tom says I shouldn't
let her get to me…
(she pivots back around)
He's right, you shouldn't…you know
she'll never change…
You're right… and as long as she
stays in Astrometrics, we'll all
(looks up smiling)
…speaking of Astrometrics…
61 KIM (OPTICAL)
Folds his arms and rolls his eyes. He knows what she
is going to say.
not you too…(beat) for the last
time, I am not interested in
Come on Harry, you should see
the way she looks at you…(beat) that
cute little "puppy dog" look in
62 INT. VOYAGER-HELM ON PARIS
He smiles wide; chuckling inwardly he shakes his head.
63 RESUME-ENGINEERING (OPTICAL)
Torres suddenly bursts out laughing…she covers her mouth trying to contain herself…Kim is looking very irritated.
You know, I'm really getting
sick of this 'telepathic' thing
with you and Tom…(beat) he just
put you up to this didn't he?
I'm sorry Harry. I couldn't help
myself…he told me what happened
with Celes on the bridge before you
Kim takes the ribbing in stride…(beat) Then another thought occurs to him and he is more serious.
You know, you two are handling
this a lot better than I thought
you would…I honestly thought you'd
be at each other's throats by now.
(turns to him again)
Well Harry, let's just say that
telepathic links have a lot of
(beat) fringe benefits…
Kim laughs at the implications.
64 HELM ON PARIS
His eyes widen briefly. He's almost embarrassed. Smiling he shakes his head again.
I'm sure they do…
TIME CUT TO:
65 INT. VOYAGER-TORRES' QUARTERS
1930 hours. Torres is dressed to go out and is pacing the floor. The door CHIMES and SWISHES open to reveal Paris… also dressed in civilian clothes.
With mock roughness, she grabs Paris by his lapels pulls him in the door and starts kissing him…the door SWISHES closed.
(up for air)
I know…I'm sorry…
we ran into some anomalous
readings just before my shift
(they continue kissing as
they stumble to the couch)
Chakotay insisted we investigate…
(up for air)
Sometimes I wish he wasn't so
(Paris touches her face…)
I've been thinking about his
all day long…
66 NEW ANGLE- PARIS AND TORRES
More intense kissing; she attempts to take his shirt off, but he stops her. Remembering he's got something else planned.
Kisses the daylights out of him, he almost gives in…
(thinking to her)
I have a surprise…
(that stops her)
How come I can't tell what it is?
Because I haven't thought about
it all day- on purpose - and I'm
not going to think about it now…
it's a surprise!
Believe me we'll have plenty
of time for "other" things later.
TIME CUT TO:
67 INT. VOYAGER-HOLODECK TWO ON DOORS
About fifteen minutes later, Paris and Torres are standing just inside the door. We see the corridor outside as the door SURGES closed and then DISAPPEARS into the wall of a dark colored chamber. Candlelight is reflecting on the walls.
REVEAL we are in
68 INT. CANDLELIT CHAMBER
The room is slightly 'Klingon' looking and is filled with candles of every shape and size-all of them cream colored. There is no other illumination. We see a small dinner table set for two in the middle of the room. Very romantic…
(turns to Paris)
This is… absolutely …beautiful…
(thinks to her)
Not as beautiful as you…
Paris pulls her in his arms and kisses her again, but his time the kiss is tender-gentle…
Your table is this way…
69 NEW ANGLE-DINNER TABLE
They walk to the table and he seats her - he walks around and also sits.
How did you ever manage to keep
this from me?
When I was at the academy, I
took a course on how to shield
your thoughts from telepathic
interrogation, just for kicks
(beat) It's come in handy on more
than one occasion.
Then why can't you shield all
of your thoughts from me?
Well for one thing, it takes a
hell of a lot of concentration…
believe me, it was all I could do
to keep this
(gestures to the room)
(smiles, thinks to him)
…just when I thought I knew
everything about you…
