"Three Wishes" Segment Seven
101 INT. VOYAGER-BRIDGE
As before…red alert…tense…
Where did those energy blasts come from?
Captain…(beat) three Klingon
Bird of Prey have just de-cloaked
Shocked expressions from everyone…Janeway and Chakotay first, Paris and Torres, then the others…
102 NEW ANGLE- ON KIM
At Ops, he works…
103 VIEW SCREEN (OPTICAL)
We see two of the three BIRD OF PREY…as they ROAR by they continue to FIRE at the Turei Vessel.
The Turei's shield have been
disabled…I've got a lock on
Get him out of there…
…he's in sickbay…
104 EXT. SPACE-KLINGONS AND TUREI-VOYAGER P.O.V.
The Bird of Prey now surround the Turei vessel.
105 INT. VOYAGER-BRIDGE
The Turei are hailing us…
Let's hear it…
106 VIEW SCREEN (OPTICAL)
Turei Captain as before standing on his bridge…
You will return Wrill to us…
I don't think you're in any position
to make demands, Captain…
You've lost shields and weapons
and unless you'd like our friends
to finish the job--I suggest you leave
and forget you ever heard of Ambassador
(furious, but knows he's lost,
a long beat)
Until next time, Captain Janeway…
Turei Captain flicks off…we see the image of his ship's engines PULSING…they swing around and DISAPPEAR going to warp.
The Turei have gone to warp,
Paris turns to look at Janeway…
Lucky for us, the odds changed
in our favor…
Close on her look, she is still somewhat amazed by what happened…
Hail the Klingons…
I am sorry, Captain (beat), but the
Klingons are gone as well…
Janeway can think of nothing to say and just collapses in her chair…
Stand down, red alert…
Lights return to normal…
(continuing, to Chakotay)
What just happened?
108 INT. VOYAGER-SICKBAY
Janeway and Wrill, are standing together…off to one side are Tuvok and T'Pel. In the b.g. Torres and Paris are
standing by the Doctor.
My apologies, Captain Janeway…
my gifts were meant as blessing…
yes…yes to cheer you…
not to cause you…grief…
109 TUVOK AND T'PEL- JANEWAY'S P.O.V.
Standing close to one another talking quietly…
(touches his arm)
Somehow, I think it was all
worth it in the end. (beat)
But what I don't understand is
why? Your people had given us
so much already.
I am an old man, Captain…
(long beat)…it gives me joy
to enrich the lives of others.
Even though they don't always
(laughs his laugh)
Yes…yes…sometimes…that is half
110 NEW ANGLE-INCLUDE TORRES AND PARIS
They have joined Wrill and Janeway…
We can't wait any longer, Captain…
The Doctor's life signs are getting
111 INCLUDE TUVOK AND T'PEL
They also join the group.
We are ready…
(to T'Pel, holding up hand
in the Vulcan sign)
Live long and prosper, my wife…
(also holding up her hand)
Peace and long life, my husband…
A BRIGHT LIGHT FLASHES and when it is gone, so is T'Pel…Paris and Torres look at each other- the link is broken…
112 NEW ANGLE-SURGICAL BED
The Doctor sits up and looks around a bit confused…
What am I doing on this bed?
And why are all you people in
All laugh except Tuvok, who only raises an eyebrow…
Off the moment…
TIME CUT TO:
113 EXT. SPACE-VOYAGER (OPTICAL)
At high impulse…
114 INT. VOYAGER-MESS HALL
Later that evening, all crew and lots of N.D.'s are present. It is an engagement party for Torres and Paris. The two of
them are standing together, Janeway and Chakotay, are standing together on one side and Kim, is on the other.
For all the people on this
ship, including me, at times…
who never believed that a girl
(looking at Torres)
would ever say yes to a guy
(he raises the glass he's
Here's to beating the odds!
Everyone laughs and cheers…
(hits Paris on the arm)
Paris hugs her to him…
So, when's the big day?
Better make it quick before
she comes to her senses…
Looking up at Paris, smiling…
As soon as possible…
They kiss; that gets some very rowdy catcalls and more cheers…Paris and Torres, laugh good-naturedly.
(holding up her hands
for quiet, then raising
My only wish (beat) is that you
honeymoon in the Alpha Quadrant!
116 INCLUDE EVERYONE- WIDE ANGLE
More cheers as all clink their glasses in a toast.
