Picard, Riker, Data, Worf, Deanna and Wesley were on the main bridge.

"Ensign Crusher, take us to warp 89." Picard said.

"Aye aye sir." Wesley said smiling then got it all set. "Coarse set."


Then they were off.

Wesley was expelled last month and was back at the Enterprise as ensign Crusher and now wearing a yellow uniform after being an ensign for a year before the academy.

Then the screen went off.

"On screen." Picard said.

Worf turned it on.

"This is Captain Jean-Luc Picard of the U.S.S. Enterprise."

"Captain Picard." Admiral said.

"Admiral." he said.

"I have something for you and Commander Riker to do."


"I need you to go to Alstener and get the cure of the sickness going around."


"Be careful Captain."

Then the screen closed.

"Alright Number One, let's go." Picard said then they headed to the turbolift. "Data, you have the bridge."

"Aye aye sir." Data said and stood up.

Then Picard thought of something.

'He knows how to do this after being on the bridge for five years as ensign for four years straight.'

"Actually, Ensign Crusher, you have the bridge." Picard said causing Wesley to freeze in shock and the others to be surprised.

"Sir?" Wesley said.

"You heard me, you have the bridge. Now go sit on the captain seat like when you first got here. You already know what to do with it all." he said chuckling causing Wesley to turn red.

Everyone else snickered.

"Yes sir." Wesley said then got out of his seat then headed to the captain's chair and sat down in front.

"Now, if the screen goes off say, 'This is Ensign Wesley Crusher, youngest ensign of the U.S.S. Enterprise.' Alright?"

"Why would I need to put youngest ensign sir? I'm old enough to be a full ensign again."

"You were an acting ensign for three years and a full ensign for a year. So if you were to finish the academy you would go directly to Lieutenant jr. Crusher. Now, go make them see what you can do and make your mother proud. I've had you do it before so I need you to do it again but longer."

Wesley nodded.

"Yes sir."

"Good. Come along Number One. Consular, let me know how well he does it please."

"Yes sir." she said smiling.

"Are you sure this is a good idea?" Riker asked when they left.

"I'm sure. Young he may be he still knows things even I never knew before the academy."

Riker shrugged then nodded knowing he was right.
