Premise: In this universe, Buffy and Giles are still alive even during the Star Trek Movie. Both are a part of Starfleet’s upper echelons and there are many rumours and legends surrounding them. Karl Urban who plays McCoy in Star Trek also plays John Grimm in the movie Doom. John Grimm is a Soldier/ Marine who through the course of the movie becomes infected with a synthetic chromosome C24 making him super fast, strong, and smart and has amazing healing powers. Sound familiar?

Late for Dinner

Bones looked upon the jail with a growing feeling of apprehension. The jail was where the rest of the team had been taken. Bones had scouted the jail and quickly realised, he would need help. It was too big a job for him on his own, even with his advantage of C24. The main problem was that he did not have enough useable resources with him. When the natives had been angered and captured the rest of the away team, he only had his medical bag to hand. Apart from a medical kit, he had only two small knives that refused to leave the Enterprise without.

Reaper would have no problem in eliminating anyone between him and his objective. Unfortunately, he was no longer just a soldier and Leonard ‘Bones’ McCoy had sworn an oath as a doctor to preserve life.

Giving in to the inevitable, he used his communicator to contact the Enterprise, “McCoy to Enterprise.”

He was both relieved and apprehensive when he heard his lover’s voice, “Go ahead.”

He winced, “Buffy I’m gonna be late for dinner. The whole away team has been captured.”

The silence was telling but he just was not who was in more trouble, him or Kirk.

Meanwhile, upon the Enterprise Bridge, Buffy shared a long-suffering sigh with Nyota. Both women had planned romantic dates with their lovers. There was no way, either man was going to escape unscathed, if they missed their date. Calm once again, she pressed the communicator, “Don’t worry I’ll beam down in ten.”


Buffy winced; regulations dictate that she take an away team. However, an away team would get in the way of her and Reaper. Ever since the incident with Nero and Olduvai, the crew was aware, there was something different about the Doctor and the Security Chief but they did not know the details. The only ones who actually knew the details were the Captain and Commander Spock.

Buffy could see the communications expert was as amused, as she was which; meant Spock would be grovelling as well. Buffy smiled mischievously, “Don’t worry Uhura; I’ll bring the men-folk home. Bones is making me dinner.”

Nyota smiled; Buffy was the only woman who could handle the Doctor. She almost feared for Kirk when Buffy caught up with him, especially, if he was the reason, Bones was going to miss his date.

Buffy beamed down to the co-ordinates that Bones had specified. He was grateful to see she was holding his marine kit. Buffy was clearly exasperated, “What the hell happened?”

Bones was annoyed, “The kid is too pretty for his own good.”

Buffy quirked an eyebrow; Bones knew her better. She was going to want a better explanation than just Kirk was too pretty. Bones sighed, “The Chief’s daughter hit upon him but he turned her down. She doesn’t take too kindly to rejection.”

“I’ll say. Think she’ll accept a bunny in a pot?”

Bones was not even going to touch that pop-culture reference, no matter how true. He just grouched, “You know, I’m glad he’s found someone he wants to go steady with.”

They were folding more and more daggers into their clothes. Buffy prompted, “I’m sensing a but.”

That earned her a wry grin, “he needs to learn to be diplomatic in turning them down.”

An evil thought struck Buffy, “You know I think Galia and Jim should get married. It will be for their own good.”

Bones could not deny that the thought greatly appealed to him. Buffy could read his face well enough, she reassured him, “Relax, when we get back to the ship, Galia and Nyota will be waiting.”

Bones was in awe of his girlfriend’s sneaky underhanded tactics, “God your sexy when you’re being manipulative.”

Buffy did not bother to hide her pleased flush. She levelled a heated look his way, “Good, then lets hurry things along so I can get my own smooches.”

He activated his old gun, ‘Handle ID Reaper.’ He smirked, “Whatever you say dear.”

It really did not take long for the Queen Slayer and C-24 enhanced Soldier to rescue the captured away team. Stupid aliens, they should no better, than to get between a slayer and her smooches time.

Oh, Jim owed her and Nyota chocolate. She intended to make sure he got the good stuff. It really was great that Godiva chocolate had lasted through the centuries.
