“Intellectual Therapy”: #StaD May; Day Seven

Standard disclaimer. I don’t own them, I don’t profit from them, but they insist on telling me their stories, so I’m sharing them with you.

“Intellectual Therapy”

“Mr. Velik? You’re the second Vulcan Surprise Package I’ve had lately. You gonna tell me I’m an obtuse fool?”

“No. I believe the inverse to be true. My purpose isn’t minatory.”

“But it is an aberration. Things don’t happen in a vacuum, at least not Earthside. Tell me why you’re here.”

“The accusations against you are manifold. I offer my assistance in detecting the reticulation pattern which motivates them.”

“So, do we try the mathematical order of operations? Trigonometry?”

“I propose a logical consideration of all relevant factors.”

“Well, come on in, then. At the least, it’ll be intellectual therapy.”

Who is Mr. Velik?

When did Trip meet him before?

Will they be able to work through the accusations?

And just what ARE those accusations, anyway?

Any guesses?

Come back tomorrow for another 100 word installment, or visit the brand-new series link! 


I am myself. I own my life, and live with three other people who own theirs. My intention is to do only those things that bring me joy, and to give myself wholly to those things I do. Writing has been my passion throughout my life, and this will become the home for my writing life...because it brings me great joy!

    1. I had to look it up, too. I only knew it in reference to venomous snakes…so I assumed it referred to the fangs (incorrectly, as it turns out).

      Now we’ve both learned a word, and got to play with Trip for a bit – can’t say that’s a bad deal (unless T’Pol finds out)!

Take a chance! Type something in this box, and see what happens! =D
