"Lieutenant Uhura. Do we have any incoming messages from Starfleet Command?" Captain James Kirk asked his Chief Communications officer.

"No, sir. All channels are clear of activity." Uhura listened for a minute. "There are only the local civilian broadcasts."

"Hm." Kirk thought. No distress calls, new orders, nothing. "Mister Spock. Sensor readings. Anything unusual out there? New nebulae or unknown vessels coming this way?"

"Sensor readings show nothing abnormal for this sector, Captain." Spock reported.

"Mister Chekov, any Klingon sightings?"

"No sir. No Klingons, Romulans, or pirates." Chekov sounded shocked.

Was there really such thing as normalcy onboard the Enterprise?
