Lord Elrond Peredhil, once Lord of Imladris in Arda, was climbing the stairs of the great tower where the great globe made by Fëanor is housed. When he reached the top, he walked over to the palantír, which looked east.
After arriving in the West many ages ago, he vowed to keep an eye on his and his brothers descendants. As the years wrought inexorable changes, the mortal lands, or the round world, became strange to him and his kindred. He saw kingdoms and empires rise and fall; the triumphs, failures and follies of men; the many wars and destruction. He also watched as men continued to grow and learn.
When he saw men first step on Isil (moon), he thought to himself they were children no longer, and the race of men can now travel further than Lady Varda can see. When she and his kindred now look up at sky, all they see are dry docks, starbases, ships and shipyards. When Lord Manwë and Lady Varda now look to the east, they see strange beings living on Arda with the race of men living in harmony with one another.
Lord Elrond was now watching the ceremony in one of the great halls at Starfleet Command and watched as Captain Kathryn Janeway was promoted to Rear Admiral upper-half (2 pips). When they read her list of accomplishments in the Delta Quadrant, her mother was beaming, as was her sister, brother-in-law and their two children.
After the ceremony was over, Lord Elrond descended the stairs with a smile on his face. Elros would be very proud of her, he thought, as was he, since that was his niece.
