A/N: I have been meaning to do a 5+1 for a while, and then suddenly, out of the swirly blue of the Enterprise's warp nacelles, came this. Enjoy… (first chapter is only this, I know, but the actual experiments will come, all in good time, all in good time…)

Almost forgot… Disclaimer: STAR TREK IS NOT MINE, MUCH AS I WOULD LIKE IT TO BE. (all I own is a bobble head Spocky and DVDs of all three seasons of TOS, and all 11 movies that have come out so far. Oh yes - I also own a mind that is constantly thinking about Star Trek, but I have Gene Roddenberry -AWESOMENESS ALERT!- to thank for that.)

Experiments in the name of Science

Captain James T Kirk was sitting on the bridge, and he was Bored. With a capital 'B'. This was never usually a good sign, especially not for the people around him, as it more often than not meant that he was going to get them into some kind of trouble, and even more so when he had an Idea. Oh dear. He had a small smile on his face which meant… Yes. He had an Idea. Spock turned away from the captain and Vulcan-not-sighed. Today was not going to be a good one.

Captain's Log, Stardate 2345.7

We have been travelling through space for several months now, and nothing of interest has happened. Crew morale is running dangerously low, and I have taken it upon myself to provide some entertainment. I shall conduct some…er… experiments, which will hopefully boost spirits, enabling my crew to work at optimum efficiency. Kirk out.

A/N: How about that for the amazing cliff-hanger? Awful, I know, but I promise you, it will get better (hopefully). I don't actually think this one will have too much trouble from the Ensigns - they're mostly busy in Bunny, Bunny (another of my stories, which it would be much appreciated if you read *end shamless plug*), but they may randomly appear at convenient moments. As usual, reviews are like cookies, and they are wery much appreciated. And for a teaser of what is to come:

1. Shoe Polish

2. Bowling ball shiner

3. Hairbrush

4. Straighteners

5. Scissors

+1. Chocolate

Virtual muffins for those who guess who the test subject is…!

Also, are there any requests as to what language I do the A/N in (examples: Wulcan, Russian, Japanese, Klingon, etc.)- I'm open to any ideas, so please drop a review , or PM me.
