MoST 2016

Just as Tolkien and the Inklings used to meet at The Bird and the Baby, come in here to converse about whatever might be on your mind. This is the place for all off-topic conversation.

Julian and Ninui spent a non chaotic dinner in the banquet hall. Enjoying the food and mingling with the crowd that had com to observe the festivities. There was a wide assortment of people tonight and Julian was able to catch up with his sponsor from a few years ago, NL. They talked a few minutes then wishing her the best of luck with her candidate,then continued on through the hall. Ninui, with her to go box of food,caught up with him, nudged his arm gently and the two left the hall.
He walked her to her quarters, then after stopping at his own to change into fresh clothes,

he returned to the private mess and started another batch of browines.

Pleased that he now finally stood before the judges, Julian, with buffet cart in front of him, with yet another with a portable mini oven to his left,he began his tale of the finer points of brownie making as he tied a blue and white bib apron about him he began.

"Your first step," reaching a hand to the oven,"is to set the oven to 350 F. then to grease the size of pan. Which I have already did as we came in before you this evening." saying as he held up the 8" square pan for the judges to view. "For this recipe you will need,
3/4 C. Hershey Cocoa Powder,sifted
1/2 tsp. baking powder
2/3 melted butter unsalted & divided into two 1/3 C. portions
1/2 C boiling water
2 C. sugar
2 eggs
1 1/3 C. all purpose flour
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp salt
1 C semi sweet or special dark chocolate chips "

Julian bent down at the waist slightly after reading off the ingredients,coming back up with a large metal bowl, he continued;
"Since you have preheated your oven and prepared your pans, you are now ready to mix up your batter. In a large bowl you will mix together your sifted cocoa powder and baking powder. Then add the first 1/3 cup of melted butter til the cocoa mixture is well mixed, then add your boiling water and stir all until this thickens." Julian paused as he stirred the cocoa mix and when it had thickened, he began again.
"At this point, you will add the sugar, eggs, and remaining 1/3 cup of melted butter and stir until smooth." As he stirred the mix, Ninui came up to the buffet tray and placed a mixer, which sat on it's own small table equipped with it's own power source beside the first one. Giving her a short smile, he continued;
"Empty wet ingredients into your mixing bowl and beginning on low speed,gradually add flour,vanilla,and salt. When wet ingredients have incorporated enough dry, mix all on medium speed of mixer until just blended". When this was completed, Julian stopped his mixer, removed the bowl and returned it to the tray before him. "With a soft scrapper, fold in your chocolate chips, I am using semi sweet in this batch," he added looking to the judges as Ninui came up with his prepared pan. Setting it down,Julian tilted the bowl over it, "using your soft scrapper, scrape all of your mix into the pan. Spread mix evenly and place in the oven for 30 to 35 minutes." Julian turned to the fully heated oven and placed the brownies inside and set the timer for 30 minutes and faced the judges once again.

"Now brownies are delicious without a topping at all but who really wants that"? he said with a clap of his hands and a smile . "So for you now, I'll be preparing a Chocolate Buttercream Frosting and for it's ingredients you will need
1 stick of unsalted butter softened to room temperature
2 2/3 C. of sifted powdered sugar
1/2 C. Cocoa powder, sifted if lumpy
1/3 C. milk
1 tsp. vanilla extract"
Ninui,who had removed all other previous equipment as Julian spoke, now set the wheel break on the new cart holding the new ingredients and equipment. as he turned on the mixer, he began
"In your mixer bowl,beat your softened butter, on low speed for two to three minutes. Then, continuing on low speed, gradually add the powdered sugar and cocoa powder alternately with the milk. When all dry ingredients have been mixed in, put speed on medium and mix well adding small amounts of milk if needed. Remove bowl from mixer and add vanilla. Fold into frosting till well incorporated."
Ninui came over with three pans just like the one he had put in the oven ten minutes prior and set them before Julian.
"As you will see with the video clip on the tricorders beside you that my assistant Ninui is placing before you, you will note that these pans were made by myself in the private mess one hour ago. The markings on these pans before me are those pans in the video." With that the judges picked up the tricorders and took a hasty view as Julian continued:
"Now that your brownies have cooled, place a serving dish on top of the baking pan and flip them over removing the brownies from the baking pan." Julian did so with all three pans. "Spread your buttercream frosting as generously as you desire on the top of each batch then cut into equal sizes".
He frosted and cut each batch of brownies and plated three on each plate for the judges. On the top, he sprinkled each with a bit of mini morsels of semi sweet and dark chocolate chips. With Ninui assisting, Julian placed the final product before the judges.

https://www.hersheys.com/Recipes/Images/Detail/115_es-US_medium.jpg

"I have prepared three versions of this recipe for you. You will each find a plain brownie, a semi sweet chip brownie, and a special dark chip brownie. I hope you will enjoy them".

As they were set before her, Calma did a pretty good job of hiding her fear of Kruge's Brownies. She looked to the other judges who were also trying not to hurl at the sight of the Klingon's desert. She, bravely, lifted the plate to take a closer look. The cake was completely baked and it looked good. It was the ingredients that put her off. “You always say chocolate covers all ills.” Archie leaned in from behind and grabbed up one of the treats. Then with a grin and a wink, stuffed it into his mouth.

Calma watched in anticipation for any adverse affects from the tall man and when he gave her the thumbs up sign as he returned to his seat, she cautiously cut into the Klingon's entry and took a bite. It was a bit of a surprise, but the taste wasn't as bad as she thought. Swallowing, she jotted notes on her tablet and looked up as the next plate was set before her. She was happy to see only chocolate chips on the top and slapped Archie's hand away as she smiled at the good doctor who was stepping back from his entry

There were only two contestants bringing brownies so far. Kruge's brownies looked interesting, and he sampled them, then Q went on to the other batch. "Interesting, though common.. " he said, as he sampled them, then considered. Where were the rest?

"NL!!!" Wesley shouted, as nl relaxed in a deep bubble bath.

"What? Unless this is a fashion emergency or there are terrifying space monkeys in the suite, I don't want to be bothered."

"Well....it is kinda of an emergency." Wesley said hesitantly.

"There are space monkeys?"

"Noooooo....it's worse than that."

"Mal's been kidnapped by hill folk?" nl was getting a little disturbed now.

"Not exactly." Wesley said, averting his eyes as he entered the bathing room.

"Okay kid, let me have the worst..."

He held out a PADD. "The brownie recipe is in metric!!"

nl tossed a sud laden sponge at him, hitting him square in teh face. "Seriously?? You are the smartest kid on the Enterprise...do the math and convert it."

"Oh...okay." Wes grinned and left the room.

"And send Mal in with a bottle of wine please!"

“Ooooo. Those brownies looks scrumptious,” Tony said when he spied Louie carrying the tray towards the judges table. “Ruk did a good job!” He reached for a brownie on top, but Louie swatted away his two fingers.

“Not yet! This presentation is for the judges.”

Tony sighed. “They should be real tasty. Ruk said he had a sekrit ingredient.”

“Did he says what it was?” Louie asked.

“Stalac—mint? Lactite?? Hmmmm….. I can’t remember exactly what it was….”

The three judges waited at the table for the remainder of the contestants to present their Brownies. Ruk approached and set his entry before the judges. Calma chuckled as she watched two fingers slide in and slip a chocolate treat from the nicely presented platter of Brownies. She nodded to Ruk as he stepped back to watch the reaction of the judges.

The graying TORC'er closely looked at the powdery substance on the top of the treats. Could that be rock? She raised an eyebrow but figured if she could stomach Gagh and Tribble brains she could down a bit of rock and lifted the treat to her mouth.....

"Do you think we'll need a dentist?" Tooks wondered out loud.

"A dentist?" Kruge was amused. "There are no Klingon dentists. Dentists are for weaklings, those who do not pull their own teeth...."

"No,Julian". Ninui said a bit firmly to her friend as they stood alone in holosuite four at Quark's. "we're doing this once more before I let you go for the evening. You know how much trouble we had with the holoprogram".
Julian nodded his head. A virus got into the dance program somehow and nearly half had been destroyed before it was remedied. His dance partner could not be saved nor much of the stage settings. There wasn't much time to reprogram so they had chosen to scrap the destroyed holoprogram and do this "live" on a stage in the main hall on Friday.
"Staging should be finished tomorrow". Ninui said. " We'll do a dress rehearsal there tomorrow night at seven. Now," adding as she took her position, "from the top".

"I am ready for my musical number," Kruge informed Tooks.

"ooooOOO. Good. What movie is it from?" she asked.

"Movie?"

"Yes, it's supposed to be from a musical..movie."

"..... It is a gangster movie, I believe." Kruge strode off towards the stage.

"Gangster movie????" Tooks wondered if she should start to worry.....

"These are to go to the MC Calma's quarters". Julian said to the Bajoran delivery person who was standing just outside of sick bay. He looked over his list and began checking them off as he found them on the trolley cart.
"Chocolate chip cookies to make up for those that had been consumed without her:

"Suitable for all occasions I'm assured" He said with a small smile and nod as he handed her his list of brib.... ahmmm gifts to the delivery person. When she had left sick bay Julian turned back to his office and began his day

"Boots!!!" Calma shouted as she grabbed up the first pair and tried them on,

"Nice." Archie nodded as he nibbled on a cookie. "Excellent choice."

"Stop eating my cookies." She warned as she stood, examining the look of the boots in the full length mirror. "These boots are made for walkin' y'know." she teased as she opened a Coke and took up a cookie. "C'mon, we have a few musicals to watch." she winked as she led the way out of the suite.

Tooks nervously found her seat in the theater. She had a nip from her flask as she settled in. Another nip helped settle her nerves also. One never knew what may happen with a Klingon....


Kruge's musical number.

“What musical is Ruk using for the show?” Louie asked Tony.

“I think he said The Shindig,” was the reply.

The Shindig?......???”

Louie trundled off to check out The Shindig on IMDB.com, but he was too late to stop it......

Julian stood before the packed crowd in the hall and waited for the din of the people to die down. Apparently this was the challenge all on the station had been waiting for. He had been informed that many were here early that morning just to get a good seat. That bit of information hadn't calmed his nerves all that much. After all that had gone on before he stood where he now did was a win in his book. First the holo program picking up the virus and just this morning, his dance partner coming down with a debilitating Rigileian fever he thought he'd have to pull out of the competition for sure. He gave a slight pull on his tux with tails shirt collar and scanned the audience and saw a few familiar faces.

Part of him wished he was sitting with them right now. The crowd finally came hushed and he began. "I wish to announce that my original dance partner, engineering specialist Minnie Lawrence had to drop out due to illness. She'll be watching only by video com in sick bay. Taking her place on extreme short notice is the lady who taught me how to dance so many years ago. My friend and sponsor, Ninui. We will be performing a dance number from the MGM musical "Call Me Madam" filmed in 1953. A sort of foxtrot with a waltzy flair and danced to the tune "It's A Lovely Day Today". I hope you enjoy this dance as much as we will enjoy dancing it for you ". Julian smiled and nodded to the audience, judges and MC then turned and stepped behind the curtains. A few moments later the opening bars began and the curtains parted :

Julian was so glad the dance challenge was finished for him. He had been so nervous he heard his knees knocking as he waited for the curtains part. He hadn't dance competitively in years and now he hoped it would be well liked for the judges. The last of the gifts to said judges and MC will be going to them just before night fall. He hoped they would be well received.

For CR: Now that there were no restrictions on owning one his would be waiting in cargo bay 2: https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/2/25/Golden_Eagle_12a_%286027292102%29.jpg/320px-Golden_Eagle_12a_%286027292102%29.jpg,

Tooks sent the bellboys up to the judges room with lovely ... gifts.....

Image

Next she stopped at her suite before heading to see Calma. Kruge followed her down the hallway as he dragged a large canvas bag along the floor.

"Mrnnnmmrrphh!! Elemme tout!" Muffled sounds could be heard emanating from the bag. Something inside it was squirming and kicking, but it was no match for the Klingon.

Tooks stopped at Calma's door and knocked. "Okay, let him loose!" she told Kruge.

A disheveled man was dumped onto the floor as Calma opened the door.

"Look!!!" Tooks beamed. "You're very own Mexican chef! Aarón Sanchez!!

She nudged Kruge in the ribs and whispered, "This oughta win us a few extra points...."

Wesley finally figured out the metric conversions and cooked up an amazing batch of brownies for the judges. He presented them to the judges after Captain Picard gave him a rousing introduction…(that could have been from the added rum in the brownies)

Image

“Honoured judges, I apologise for my tardiness, but setting me a bed time at my age does tend to stop me attending some of the later competitions, thanks mom!@!!"
Image

“But I now present to you…the Brownie Pop.”
Ingredients
• 1/4 cup flour (50 g)
• 1/4 cup sugar (70 g)
• 2 Tbsp (13 g) cocoa (natural, unsweetened)
• Pinch of salt
• Tiny pinch of cinnamon
• 1/4 cup water (60 ml)
• 2 Tbsp canola oil or vegetable oil (NOT extra virgin olive oil, it's too strongly flavored)
• 1 to 2 drops vanilla extract
• 1 small scoop of ice cream or 1 or 2 teaspoons heavy whipping cream to serve
• Rum…a cup full.

Image

Around the little sticks the brownies had been cooked upon was the recipe (in case the judges wanted to replicate more) He suggested they dip the brownie pops into the cream rather than placed on top as it tended to slide off and land in your lap. Though the can of whip cream would have been more useful if it hadn’t been appropriated by his sponsor…

nl woke to the sight of Wesley leaning over her, singing softly.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IKU3Z8_JQm4

“What are you doing?” she asked, hiding the firearm she kept under her pillow before she accidently shot the boy.

“Well, you were having a nightmare so I thought I’d sing you to sleep, you know, to get into practice for the judges.”

nl sat up, elbowing a snoring Mal to shut up. “The nightmare is Mal’s snoring after a few bottle of whatever he can get his hands on.”

“Honey, you can’t sing just anything. It has to be like an MGM production. A big number to wow them. Think Singing in the Rain or On the Town.”

“Oh, okay. I’ll Galaxy-Google some of those things and come up with something.”
Despite being nervous about her competitor’s lack of anything musical, nl went back to sleep as she heard the strains of a musical playing from the PADD in the joint lounge room.

Hours later, nl and Mal led a nervous Wesley down to the main ballroom of DS-9. He was dressed in a sailor outfit and got some odd stares from the denizens of Quark’s bar.

The judges seemed a bit tipsy or so she thought. Just what had Wesley put in the lolly-pop brownie things? A drunk raccoon passed out at her feet and she stepped over its moaning carcass. ;)

“So what have you chosen to perform, kid?” Mal asked, licking a brownie pop. “Mmmm, good.”

“I took nl’s suggestion of “On The Town.” Wesley told him, straightening his top with a quick Picard manoeuvre.

Kruge finished his number with rousing applause from audience and shouldered his way off the stage, almost
knocking Wesley into the orchestra pit. The Klingon just growled at Mal as he passed by and took his brownie pop.

“Hey!” Mal objected.

“Leave it, Mal. You don’t want to get into a fight with a Klingon. You’d lose.” Nl said, grabbing his arm.

“Fine. He should be glad it isn’t U-day or I’d be a mite crankier.”

“Hush. Wesley’s going on…” she told him as her sponsored kid sauntered out onto the stage with the strains of “New York, New York” playing.

As the song died out, he began his own interpretation… (it's a bit inappropriate :Q )

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yVPz5Au-SwA

nl covered her face, trying not to laugh or blush. Mal didn’t seem to care and nearly fell off into the orchestra pit his own self, he was laughing so hard. Nl could see some of the judges face palming in embarrassment.

"Should have chosen something for him. Oklahoma instead?"

“I have a pretty floral bonnet he can borrow…” Mal managed to choke out as Wesley finished his number and bowed to a wildly applauding crowd.

After Wesley left the stage, Calma looked to the other judges. Like her, neither looked too upset. She finished her notes on the performances then made her way to the communications room. “Good Morning/Afternoon/Evening all contestants and observers.” Her voice was heard all over the station. “This is the make up week. If you have to complete a contest do so before Friday the 4th. The judges will tabulate their scores and get them to the accounting firm for the final count. If you have completed all the contests take this week to relax and get ready for the Awards ceremony, tentatively scheduled for Monday the 7th. Thank you one and all for participating this year.”

She got up from the chair, thanked the crewman on duty, then left the room. Archie was waiting just outside. “Looks like Morn may have dropped out.” He mentioned as they walked toward the elevator. “Sometimes Real Life gets in the way.” He smiled as they entered the lift. “Still it was a good show this year. You have any clear cut winner yet?”

“No.” She shook her head. “And if I did, I wouldn't tell you. I saw you talking with Quark and exchanging credits. No inside hints for you my friend.” She wagged her index finger at him as she left the elevator. “Now be a good fellow and order me a full lunch. I'll be in the suite.” She said as the doors closed on the disappointed Archie.

A large glass of Coke was set beside the graying TORC'er causing her head to come up from the papers before her. She smiled at he companion as she lifted the glass to her lips and took a sip. “How's it going?” Archie asked as he sat across the desk from her. “The engravers are chomping at the bit to get the final tallies.”

“Nearly finished.” She set the glass back on the coaster and returned to her calculator. “It's a close one this year. Could use some food. Any more shrimp about?”

“I'll ring up room service.” Archie fluffed her hair as he passed by on his way to the intercom.

Tooks noticed Louie and Tony trying to steer a cart full of shrimp down the hall.

Suspicious, she followed them.......

The tall man entered the suite, his gray suit looking a bit rumpled, but he had a plate of tempura shrimp. Calma blinked in surprise then chuckled as she shook her head. “Louie?” she asked as she took the plate with a grateful smile.

“And Tony.” He replied while moving to the bath.

After a night of counting and recounting, not to mention a few pizzas, the scores were finally figured and the winner numbers were sent to the engravers who only needed to put the name on the plaques. It looked like the Awards Ceremony would come off as planned for Monday.

No matter the final outcome, preparations for the closing ceremonies scheduled for tomorrow night were complete. There was nothing more she could think of to do but keep her fingers crossed. Ninui could finally take a breath and relax just a little and enjoy some time that was left to her here on the station. Her friend from last years MoST, Ens. Holloway had arrived just before the dance challenge and she believed the loudest cheers that came from the audience were from him.
Today she and Holloway were meeting with Julian and Garak in holosuite 3 for another episode of "Our Man Bashir" Set in the 1940's this time and Holloway sure looked dapper in his costume.

Ninui met up with him at Quarks in her finery http://www.enzsnyc.com/img/170x255/inc/modules/Photo_Gallery/images/1452834157_686_large_1780_mlonia-03-blkgd.jpg
Holloway smiled his approval as he took her arm and walked her into Quarks bar and to the stairwell leading to the holosuite where they will meet up with Julian and Garak.

Julian stared in the mirror as he straightened his tie. He was anxious. Down right nervous more than not. Satisfied with the tie, he stepped back and took in the full effect in the mirror.
"What do you think"? he asked Ninui who stood just behind and the right of him.
"Just fantastic. You'll be the best dressed man there"

"I do approve of your gown by the way". he said as Ninui did a few short side to side sways holding the hem in her hand.

"You don't think it's a bit too much do you"?
He shook his head with a short smile. "Not in the least".
"Almost chose the animal print I brought with me but this one screamed out first".
"I'm glad you heard it scream", he said offering her his arm. "Shall we go"?
Nodding her head as she took his arm, they walked out of his quarters and headed for the banquet hall.
