Star Trek: Resolution

S01E07 - Deserted

Trapped on the Holodeck in a Doctor Who program, the senior staff of the Resolution must figure what is going on at The Greatest Amusement Park in the Universe to escape.

Alexa LaSalle-Cortes, Personal Log, Stardate 40977.3. So, we've been mapping a Nebula for, like, a week now? It's pretty, but really boring. Apparently, no one could map before because there are Ion discharges that Starfleet shields weren't strong enough to deal with, but ours are. I figured an unexplored nebula would have tons of cool stuff in it, but so far it's just a rare bunch of gasses. Anyway, dad proposed we run one of his programs. Yeah, Doctor Who, again. He's invited some of the senior staff to come. Might be fun. Antos is nice and Ryanne seems cool too. Don't know about the doctor and Mr. Scowlface, but they might surprise me. Worst case, it's just two wasted hours of my day. Maybe I can get myself shot by a Dalek or something and get out of there. Ooh, or maybe taken by the Cybermen and then I can be a bad guy! We'll see. Alexa out.

 

Alexa LaSalle-Cortes, Personal Log, supplemental. So… that was weird. The story we randomly got was, like, something in this enormous amusement park called Super Fun Land. It was the size of multiple planets, it was there was no end to it, but also, there wasn't anybody in it. The TARDIS landed in a park. We set out and found this mechanical mascot called Mister Cuddles. It was a giant pink teddy bear. It kept asking us what we wanted to do and taking us places. Oh! And every time he talked about the park, he'd, like wave his hands in a semicircle and say "The Greatest amusement par… in the UNIVERSE!" in his goofy voice…

Anyway, we soon realized we were stuck in the holodeck and couldn't contact the rest of the crew! We investigated, and discovered that the program had become corrupted and taken on aspects of the nebula outside. We tried to talk to whoever was in charge of the park, but we realized that it was operating in a sort of automated fashion. Long story short, turns out, the nebula… was SENTIENT! How cool is that?!? It, like, got into our systems and was trying to make us stay in it.

From what we understand, it's impossibly old. Like, maybe beginning of the UNIVERSE old… Like, whaaaat? It used to be with its kind, but as the universe expanded, they were dragged away from each other. They're, like, tethered? To the fabric of reality, or something? So it's been alone for millions of years, maybe billions. For the first time, it was finally able to talk to something. Dad informed Starfleet. They're sending a science ship to interact and study Mister Cuddles - we just kept calling it that, it didn't mind.  In the mean time, we're staying and learning what we can from it. So, yeah, that's it. But what an it, right?
