Fron: Ensign status!
Unnamed Ensign: *sigh* The same as you asked 5 minutes ago - still NOTHING.
Fron: Don't get lippy with me or I'll have you recarpeting the hull within the hour.
Unnamed Ensign: Re-carpeting the hull?
Fron: What, you think this ship is made of metal? Do you have any idea what that would cost?! Besides, the floor's so much softer this way.
Unnamed Ensign: Uh...
Unnamed Ensign: Aside from my concerns about serving on a ship made of carpet?
Fron: YES aside from your concerns about serving on a ship made of carpet.
Unnamed Ensign: A ship just decloaked off our port bow!
Fron: The port bow again? Is this who ship port bow? What about our starboard side?
Unnamed Ensign: No ships decloaking there, just powering up weapons.
Fron: *phew* Good. Now what about that decloaking ship that has long since been decloaked?
Unnamed Ensign: It's a bird of prey sir, they're hailing!

(Several CWALers are loading their laundry into the washers)
Talruum: I still don't see why you felt it necessary to set off a paint grenade in the common room.
Arcturus: Uppity Canadians, 'nuff said. And besides, since when do you have laundry?
Talruum: I've been made!
(Talruum stops loading the laundry into the washing machine and runs-err, floats out the door and down the street)
(Nearby Lothos opens a dryer full of fresh clothes)
Lothos: (deep breath) Ah, the smell of innocence before the ineviable defilement.
Arcturus: (from the background) I'm pretending I didn't hear that.
(Lothos leans too close however and static electricity makes its move, several socks and miscellaneous garments leap from the dryer and latch onto the Kiwi)
Lothos: Aaaa! I'm under attack! Man the escape pods! Women and Televisions first!
Arcturus: (Hearing the commotion) What the ?
Lothos: Hoist the main sail! Bail the bilge!
Arcturus: (noticing the capering and approaching) Uh-oh! Cling-Ons!
