Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow

After meeting with "Evil" Storvik, Captain Storvik decided that he needed to take some form of precautions to "cover his posterior" (as the humans say) in the event that the other Vulcan left the USS Murgatroid. He went to the bridge and consulted with the Mib Khan clone currently on the command shift.

A glitch in the ansible system perhaps, or maybe a form of mnemonic echo, had caused him to receive two almost identical memories simultaneously. "Am I seeing double?" he asked himself aloud.

"You're not seeing double," replied his Orion nurse Pooky, who lay to his left in bed.

"You're getting us in stereo," added his other Orion nurse Shiny, who lay to his right.

"As long as I'm not getting mono," murmured Khan, who had decided that any investigation of the flaws in his ansible update system could wait…
