Door 10

 

Janeway heard the soft murmur of the hover-bike outside her townhouse and suddenly her palms were damp and her heart way too busy. She walked to the door and took a deep, calming breath before she opened it.

“Welcome, Seven. Come in, please.” Janeway gazed at the tall blonde, drinking in the vision of her long legs, the impossibly narrow waist, and bountiful… Chastising herself for ogling, Janeway stepped aside and let Seven enter.

“Hello again, Kathryn. The hotel is sending over my luggage later.” Seven stood in her hallway, hands behind her back as if briefing her commanding officer.

“Actually, it arrived an hour ago.” Janeway grinned at Seven’s surprise. “No doubt they expedited your wish since you are, after all, the famous Seven of Nine.”

“I do not appreciate this fame.” Seven scowled. “I have even started to go by my original designation at times, since it is hard to focus on my work when there are individuals gawking everywhere.”

“Gawking, huh? That sounds intrusive. I thought Daystrom’s Institute would take good care of their most unique addition.”

“You would think that, yes.” Seven smiled faintly. “You would also think that Daystrom’s staff and associates would have gotten used to my presence by now.” Her smiled faded again. “This is not the case and I am not pleased. Not even on Voyager, when I was still very much Borg, did I find my privacy violated this way.”

“Come, let’s sit. I want to hear all about this. Our food is here already. We can eat while you tell me all about this.” Concerned, Janeway escorted Seven to the dining area next to the small kitchen. “What would you like to drink?”

“Apple cider, please.”

“One apple cider, selection four.” Janeway ordered from the replicator. “One coffee. Black.” Janeway placed their beverages on the table where thermo containers held their food at precise temperatures. “Help yourself to some dinner, Seven, then I want you to tell me exactly what goes on at Daystrom’s”

“I did not come here to complain, Kathryn.” Seven squirmed, looking ill at ease.

“You’re not complaining. Especially not when I have to drag everything out of you with a hypo-plier.”

“Very well.” Seven took a bite of the succulent chicken dish before continuing. “At first, I did not mind, since it was only natural to expect some curiosity from my co-workers. I utilized every single social lesson the Doctor put me through to ‘meet them halfway’, even hoping that I would make new friends. When the speculations and rumors did not die down, I tried taking the situation to my superiors, but they were not as understanding as you have made me accustomed to expect. They wanted to ‘pick my brain’ as they put it, but they were not interested in the conditions under which I work.”

“I’m shocked.” Janeway could barely control her anger. “I thought these esteemed scientists would know better. They are at the forefront of Federation science, all categories. Clearly I was wrong.”

“So you believe me?” Seven looked like she hadn’t expected Janeway to take what she said at face value.

“Believe you?” Janeway blinked. “Of course. Why would you ask?”

“Because…Because Chakotay did not.”

“What?” Janeway blinked. “Why the hell not?”

Summary: Post Endgame story. The year is 2379 and Voyager has been home in the Alpha Quadrant a year. Miranda Priestly, editor-in-cheif for the renowned fashion holo-magazine, Runway, intends to commemorate this by doing a fashion shoot with some of the women from the famous ship.
Admiral Janeway is less than pleased, but the decision is taken and little does she know what this shoot will set in motion.
