I’ve been missin’ ‘er too, Cap’n!
Now that you’re back, it feels far more complete. Have you enjoyed your time away?
*he mock-scowls, scoffing* Time away from th’ Enterprise, Cap’n? You must be mad!
-He chuckles softly at the reaction.- Let’s call it space madness for asking you that Scotty. But even the best engineer needs his time off. If I had given it to you on the Enterprise, you would have been reading manuals or find ways to work on repairs.
*a slight blush comes over him, and he turns his head bashfully* Can yeh blame me, sir? There’s no destination or pretty face what can match the beauty o’ Th’ Enterprise.
