****************** Epilogue: Scribonia and Jiapa are in the commander's office, sitting in front of the communication console, talking to the starbase commander. Scribonia: Have you decided on who will take care of the boy until Bloocheez comes to pick him up? Desktop Commander: (looking grim) No, our chief counselor is still searching for a good foster group... (sound of something breaking in the background. D.C. winces) Unfortunately, he made the mistake of posting the kid's personality matrix data you sent over, and now nobody will touch him with a ten foot pole. (Another crash. You can see D.C. resisting the urge to look behind him at what it was.) Lite: (in background) Yeee - haaw! Scribonia: Has the C_Sick been spotted yet by the convoy ships? Desktop Commander: Oh yes. They've intercepted him on a heading for here...at *Warp One!* (D.C.'s voice breaks at the last words. After a moment of recovery.) Just between you and me, commander, I never thought I'd be glad to see an HVR warship before. General laughter and merriment between Scribonia and Jiapa. Hey, it wouldn't be a Star Trek episode without a cloying epilogue, now would it? The End, with no apologies to the original authors of the Problem Child movies. Ours is funnier and has fewer pee jokes.
