(Data and Geordi are on the edge of the dance floor talking)
Geordi: Yes Data
Data: What is the point of this social function?
Geordi: Well it's like Lt Paris said, it's about all of us being thankful that we're home
(Tom and Harry come up behind them)
Tom: Lt Paris, please its Tom
Geordi: Oh hi, I'm Geordi
Data: And I am Data
Data: Yes, it is the name given to me by my creator Dr Noonien Soong.
Harry: Oh, hey so what do you guys do on the Enterprise?
Geordi: Well I'm Chief Engineer
Tom: That's like my wife B'Elanna
Geordi: What about you? Harry wasn't it?
Harry: Yeah, I'm Voyagers operations officer.
Data: I am operations officer for the Enterprise as well as being a science officer
Tom: Hey would either of you to like to come for a tour of Voyager, they're being done by different members of the crew over the next few days.
Geordi: That sounds good, what do you think Data?
Data: I would enjoy seeing your ship
Harry: OK, we'll meet you outside the Starfleet hangar at 13:00
(Seven walks over to Tuvok)
Tuvok: So it is not only me that finds social gatherings and inadequate waste of time
Seven: I don't think I would go that far, these functions do allow humans to interact with each other and talk about their experiences
Woman 1: That is right, they do
(They turn around and find Guinan)
Guinan: Hello Tuvok, it's been a long time
Tuvok: It has, allow me to introduce ...
Guinan: Seven of Nine Tertiary Adjunct of Unimatrix Zero One, but was born with the name Annika Hansen
Seven: How do you know my name?
Guinan: Honey, I was at the Starfleet get together the night Voyager came back, anyway as Tuvok said my name is Guinan, it's nice to meet you
Seven: As it is you, may I ask how you two know each other?
Tuvok: Me met very briefly many years ago at Starfleet HQ, we were introduced by Hikaru Sulu who was my Captain aboard the USS Excelsior
Guinan: And an old friend of mine from when I was on the Enterprise B
Seven: Well it was nice to meet you, now if you excuse me I require nutrition.
(Seven walks off)
