Girl Talk

Work Text:

“Minthe is no trouble, Doctor.”

“She’s my plant, Christine! She should be spending some time with me!”

“We didn’t kidnap her, Doctor. She came willingly.”

“She’s a plant, Nyota! She doesn’t have legs! She’s not human!”

“We’re not the ones who named her ‘she,’” Uhura said, looking up demurely.

“You wouldn’t even let Fred in here!” McCoy sputtered.

“He’s a guy,” Chapel noted.

“And probably a voyeur,” Uhura added. “Those fronds can get creepy. Always waving. Almost like an excited penis--” She shuddered.

“You’re traumatizing Minthe!”

“As if she hasn’t seen things like that already in your quarters!” Uhura snapped.
