The Music and the Man
T’Pol was pulled down through deep waters with no lifeline. She was a child home alone; T’Les was still at the Academy. Images played on her monitor:
A most illogical song about a “Ferris wheel”, and a strange dance called ‘disco’.
Then herself, grown.
Music – hypnotic, like the human male with ocean-blue eyes, smiling at her. “New Worlds to Conquer!” He laughed.
Illogical. It was merely a dream brought forth by her recent research into aspects of humanity omitted in her formal training – their entertainments.
Illogical, to dream it.
But the music and the man still wove through her.
Where is T’Pol?
Who is the man with the ocean-blue eyes?
Why is she hearing music?
