[ dissolve to theme and montage footage from “Star Trek: The Next Generation.” The model of the Starship Enterprise is combined with a model of the Pacific Princess. ]

Deanna Troi: Data, are you looking forward to the Valentine’s cruise?

Data: St. Valentine. A Christian martyr, beheaded on February 14th, by the Roman empire. Curious. A beheading commemorated by the display of affection. I do not understand the human emotion of love.

Deanna Troi: Oh, Data.. there’s more to it than that. Don’t you agree, Worf?

Worf: To a Klingon warrior, beheadings are romantic.

[ Captain Picard enters ]

Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Number One! Are the passengers ready to board?

Number One: Yes, Captain!

Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Energize!

[ Charo and a casually-dressed space alien are beamed onto the ship. Deanna Troi approaches them ]

Deanna Troi: Charo. Tog. Welcome aboard. I’m Deanna Troi, your Cruise Director.

Charo: Coochie-coochie-coo! Aye-yi-yi-yi!

Tog: Charo! Charo, what are you doing here? I thought you were cancelling yor ticket!

Charo: I thought you were cancelling your ticket!

Tog: And waste twelve bars of gold-pressed latinum?! I’d rather share a cabin!

Charo: Captain! We just broke up! We need an extra bed in the room!

Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Make it so, Number One.

Number One: Aye-aye, Captain.

[ Number One exits with Charo and Tog ]

Captain Jean-Luc Picard: [ to Deanna Troi ] Counselor. Are you picking up anything? They seem like a cute couple.

Deanna Troi: I sense strong animosity between them, Captain, which hides a deeper passion. Also, I believe he intends to steal towels.

Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Mr. Worf, alert Housekeeping.

Worf: Yes, Captain. [ exits ]

Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Mr. Data? Energize.

[ Joan Rivers and David Brenner are beamed onto the ship ]

Deanna Troi: The ship’s entertainment, Captain – David Brenner and Joan Rivers.

Joan Rivers: Oh-ho-ho! Oh-ho-ho! Look at this place, what a dump! Ah-ha-ha! Ah-ha-ha! Who was my travel agent – Darth Vadar! Ah-ha-ha!

Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Mr. Sulu? Take their bags and show them to their room!

Mr. Sulu: Aye-aye, sir.

[ Sulu exits with Joan Rivers and David Brenner ]

Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Mr. Data. Explain.

Data: Captain. The female, Joan Rivers, is a renowned comedienne, and home-shopping personality. However, my memory banks show no record of a David Brenner.

Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Hmm..

[ dissolve to footage of Starship Enterprise/Pacific Princess soaring through space, over triumphant theme music ] [ dissolve to the outdoor lounge area, where Geordi watches from the bar. A casually-dressed human stands at the bar,his back to the audience. ]

Doc: Right! Sorry.

Worf: Captain, you wish to see me?

Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Mr. Worf! The passengers have been complaining that you keep beating them at shuffleboard.

Worf: I must defeat all who oppose me, Captain!

Captain Jean-Luc Picard: But, Worf. Old women and children?

Worf: The weak and the cowardly have no place in shuffleboard, sir!

Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Mr. Worf! Let the passengers win! Now, that’s an order!

Worf: [ fuming ] Ohhhh.. very well!

[ Captain Picard leaves Worf fuming, as he approaches Charo and Tog seated unhappily at a table ]

Captain Jean-Luc Picard: So. Have you two patched things up?

Charo: He snores, Captain!

Tog: Well, she urinates through her skin like a shark!

Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Hmm.. [ steps away to a quiet area of the deck ] Guinan! Please report to the Aloha Deck!

[ Guinan materializes ]

Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Guinan! These two are still bickering.

Guinan: Captain, my man! What seems to be the problem?

Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Do you have any idea how we can bring these two together?

Guinan: Aw, yeah, baby! Guinan got all the answers, heh heh heh heh! They got to get in touch, with what’s keeping them from touching, you dig? You see, what they need is to —

Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Picard to Bridge! Get her out of here, quickly!

[ Guinan de-materializes ]

Guinan: Hey! Hey, hey hey — [ disappears completely ]

Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Data. Do you have any recommendations on how we can get this couple back together?

Data: Captain. Human affection, can often be stimulated, by alcoholic beverages. Theoretically.

Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Hmm.. Geordi! Two banana daiquiris!

Geordi: Outta sight!

Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Blenders! Engage!

Data: I must remind you, Captain. At fulle frappe, we’ll drain the warp engines in 2.4 minutes.

Number One: Captain. What if we divert power from the life support on Fiesta Deck to the blenders?

Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Make it so, Number One!

[ Number One turns to work a side panel, as Picard brings the daiquiris to Charo and Tog ]

Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Drink up!

Tog: I’m not drinking, with her.

Data: [ shakes his head ] It’s not working, Captain.

Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Red alert! [ alarm klaxons sound ] Bridge! Hard to starboard! Full impulse power! Engage!

[ lights flash, as the deck leans to the right. The gravity thrusts Charo into Tog’s arms ]

Tog: Charo! God, I missed you!

Charo: Coochie-coochie!!

Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Well done, everyone!

[ zoom in on Geordi at the bar ]

Geordi: Outta sight!

[ dissolve to footage of Starship Enterprise/Pacific Princess soaring through space, over triumphant theme music ] [ dissolve to Picard and Data on the Captain’s deck ]

Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Captain’s personal log: Stardate 45966.7. Once again, love has proved to be life’s sweetest reward.

Data: Captain?

Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Yes, Mr. Data.

Data: I think I finally understand love. Here, sir. It’s a valentine. For you. [ hands Picard a human heart ]

Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Good lord, Data! It’s a human heart!

Data: Yes, sir. But it’s dipped in chocolate.

Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Oh, Mr. Data. You’ve got a lot to learn!

[ they lean back with a hearty laugh, as the scene freezes and a heart outline with the words “The End” surround them ] [ fade ]
