Welcome to the Realm™ - Version 5.0...

[Scene: Aboard a Martok-class dreadnought, as yet unnamed.  In the Engineering section, a swarthy Klingon (but we repeat ourselves) oversees several more Klingons, five or six Cardassians, a couple of Gorn and about eight or nine Naussicans.  The Klingon overlord carries a painstick with him, and he’s not necessarily above using it to make a point every now and then – although the Klingons under his command seems to relish that sort of thing.  Never mind.

Off to the side, about 10 feet from the overlord, a large mass of energy shimmers into view.  The mass solidifies to reveal His Rudeness, Merlin, Chief Engineer Ozymandias McCool and Captain Korrioth.  The overlord moves to greet them.]

KLINGON OVERLORD:  Admiral.  To what do we owe the privilege?

LSIK&T:  We noticed that you’re a little behind schedule, Commander K’tinghe.  Is everything okay over here?

CMDR. K’TINGHE (gulping audibly – he was hoping they wouldn’t have noticed):  We…uh…we’ve run into a few difficulties with some of the materials that those damned Ferengi sold us.

KORRIOTH (angrily):  You were supposed to procure those materials from the Shelliak!!!

CMDR. K’TINGHE:  They wouldn’t sell to us…!!!

LSIK&T:  Easy, gentlemen.  Commander, I expect to be notified when issues like this arise.  This vessel is to become the flagship of the Realm™ fleet, and I want no surprises when it undergoes its maiden voyage.  Do I make myself clear, sir?

[There is unmistakeable fear in Cmdr K'tinghe's eyes now as he nods his head violently.]

CMDR. K’TINGHE:  I beg forgiveness, m’Lord.  I will redouble my efforts!

LSIK&T:  That’s appreciated, Commander.  We will pay a visit to the Shelliak and…ah…smooth over  the misunderstanding.

CMDR. K’TINGHE:  Thank you, m’Liege.

LSIK&T (to Korrioth):  Captain, return to Pegasus  and lay in a course for the Shelliak Corporate.  I’ll join you shortly.  And contact Spacedock and have a contingent of quantum torpedoes loaded into the weapons bay.

KORRIOTH (grinning broadly):  Aye.

Denizens, work on the IV project had slowed to a virtual crawl, but I’ve managed to get at least a little bit of work done on it.  Hope to have more news soon.

As always, watch this space.

Mozilla Firefox doesn't do too badly, either; in fact, it's His Rudeness' browser of choice.
You can  use Nutscrape,  if you so desire - but why in blazes would you want to use a browser from a company that had to hide behind Janet El Reño's skirt to be successful?
