Crossposted from AO3; I am not currently taking prompts.

"I'm not finished yet," Lt. Uhura said, gently placing her hand on Scotty's to keep him from turning the page.

Scotty looked up in surprise. "I didnae know you were interested in technical journals," he said.

Uhura raised an eyebrow. "I have to know how my communications array works, don't I?"

"I suppose you do." Scotty got up and pulled over another chair.

"You do realize you can get a second copy from the ship's computers?" Scotty asked as Uhura sat down.

"You can turn the page now," Uhura said, and Scotty did.
