"This isn’t happening" was the only thing going through the minds of every crew member, as they watched, frozen, as Chekov flailed about, drinking in huge amounts of water.

The Enterprise had been in orbit around an unexplored planet when it had been attacked by an unmarked ship, and the star ship went down, landing in a large body of water, which was fine, because most of the crew made it on shore… except Chekov, who they now realized, couldn’t swim.

They watched, for some reason unable to move, as the young Russian began to sink below the surface, and at that moment there was a shout of “GET OUT OF THE WAY!", and Sulu, suddenly spurred into action, jumped into the water and rushed to save his friend.
