Previously, on Star Trek: Myogi:

Connor sat at a nearby table. While enjoying a Texan style burger. "Just like home" he thought. He began to notice another captain. He recognized her.

He began to stand up and decided to say hello. "Greeting captain, I am lieutenant Talmage you must be Captain Aisaka" he said

"You're the chief science officer if I remember right?" Taiga asked.

"I am, by the way captain I hate to intrude but I must ask you something If it ok" Connor replied

And now, the continuation:

"What's your question?" Taiga replied simply.

"Would you happen to know a Kylynn adams? Starfeild records say she's on your ship. Long story short she abandoned me at the academy and I'm trying to find her" Connor asked.

"Yes, she's my Chief Science Officer. She joined along with her daughter on our last mission," Taiga said in response.

"She's alive thank God," Connor said.

"Very much so, along with her daughter." Taiga responded. "How do you know Lieutenant Adams?" She enquired.

"We may dated back in the academy, She was a fourth year I was a first. We ended up sleeping together and when I woke up she was gone." Connor explained.

Taiga turned to back to the Chief Engineer. "Say Lieutenant. What do you make of those people over there? Wearing the Miyahara shirts, even after all that's happened?" She asked.

"I'm not a big fan of them." Ami shrugged along with the statement, "I think Miyahara was in the wrong, but I didn't follow the whole story. Besides, that's one of the great things about the Federation, being able to say what you think."

"Yes it is. But selling out Starfleet and my ship to the Tal Shiar is not what an Admiral should be doing." Taiga responded.

“True, true.” Ami allowed. She tended to stay out of politics wherever she could as a matter of course, too many people took that way too far too often. “Of course, the best place to keep the Tal Shiar is as far away as possible.”

"Couldn't agree with you more..." Taiga replied as her food order arrived.

Kurumi had been observing from a distance, she had heard Captain's Aisaka about the Miyahara shirts and obvious supporters. She scowled as she made her way over to them. She strode over and stood directly at their table placing her hands on her hips.

"Starfleet does not have any regulations for your fashion choices off duty." She stated simply. "However you are wearing obvious slander in a public area and being disrespectful to our guest. Not only that but you are misrepresenting this crew." She lowered her voice. "Now, go change and keep your distasteful fashion elsewhere. Otherwise I will have your court martial!" Kurumi threatened them. "The Captain will be hearing about this!"

The Bajoran man looked his boss square in the eye, the look on his face was indicative that he was not going to be intimidated just for having a political opinion:

"Boss, surely you're joking." He said. "You can't court martial us just for having a political opinion: It's a basic right guaranteed to all Federation citizens."

Having said 'boss' in the same manner he'd done when he had spoken to Kurumi earlier, the man lowered his voice.

"And if you're going to court martial us for having an opinion, than you'd best be prepared to court martial anyone wearing a pro-Aisaka shirt too." He said. "Because an article of clothing like that is also obvious slander."

"Pardon me a moment." Ami murmured to Taiga as she got out of her chair and padded over in her bare feet, "Kurumi-sama, they're doing no harm merely by wearing those shorts. So long as they don't harm anyone, let them be?" She gave a smile to her fellow senior officer, "Jikan to rōryoku o kakeru kachi wa arimasen."(It's not worth the time and effort.)

Kurumi narrowed her eyes. "I have to disagree." She said to Rori before turning back to the others. "You may have 'political opinions' as is your right to do so. But clearly wearing propaganda apparel in front of a guest is not setting a good example for this crew! Now, I suggest you change that or I will be putting you all on report for conduct unbecoming of a Starfleet Officer!"

"It ain't propaganda for having a name on a shirt or a hat!" The female Bajoran spoke up. "No one else got offended by our apparel until you did."

"She gave you an order, Petty Officer."

All heads in the room turned to find a tall, green-haired Commander standing at the doorway to the lounge. Despite the three pips that denoted she was of equal rank to Commanders Takahashi and Misono, hardly anyone could remember seeing her anywhere.

"When your senior officer gives you a direct order, you are expected to follow it without question or hesitation," the Commander explained as she marched straight up to the Bajorans. "But seeing as you're having trouble getting it through that thick skull of yours, allow someone in a position of authority to convey it to you into words you'll understand: Change out of those clothes. Now."

Several tense seconds of silence passed before the Bajoran man stood up. At six foot three, he towered over Kurumi, Ami, and the green-haired Commander.

"The prophets warned this day would come:" He said. "The day the Pah Wraiths would have their revenge. It seems that day has come, and nobody is the wiser."

"If you're on your feet, you'd better be on your way to change, Senior Chief:" the Commander warned. "But you keep up with that mouth of yours, and I'll knock your ass down to just Chief."

The Bajoran man didn't respond, only shooting the Commander a stern look that silently conveyed 'You don't scare me, bitch.'

"Come on, Lieutenant:" He beckoned for the female to follow her. "You heard them!"

The female Bajoran reluctantly followed, but not before giving Kurumi and the Commander a look that said 'this isn't over.'

Moments after the doors to the lounge swooshed shut behind the Bajorans, a collective cheer arose as the lounge patrons applauded the two conspiracy theorists effectively being 'kicked out' of the lounge.
