[One moment she's in a dying shuttle, being transported back to the Enterprise, and the next she's....

.......not on the Enterprise. A wave of dizziness hits her and she has to sit down. Everything seems familiar and yet not. Thoughts explode in her head, almost like memories, but she can't process them. The crowd in this strange garden (Xanadu?) is too thick, too loud, too happy. And there is one other big thing she has to worry about.]

[ video ]
[A woman in a tight red suit appears on the screen.]

Lt. Uhura to Enterprise. [Nothing.] Uhura to Enterprise, please respond. [Still nothing.] Enterprise!!!

[She can worry about where she is and what's happened to her later. Her top priority right now is finding out whether Spock is safe.]

[ooc: Uhura is currently in the middle of the party in Xanadu and canon updated to early in the second movie. She does have her City memories, but it'll take a little time for them to settle in properly.]
[ video ]
[Uhura sits behind her desk at the Youth Center and smiles at the camera. She doesn't normally work on Sundays, but she's been in the Youth Center this entire weekend, getting herself ready to officially start as Youth Center director on Monday.]

Hello everyone. My name is Nyota Uhura, and I'll be taking over for Penny as director of the Youth Center. Unfortunately, this means I will no longer be running any language or history classes at the Welcome Center, but you can still arrange for language tutoring by appointment.

You can find me at my office Monday through Friday at any time between 9 AM and 5:30 PM. [She actually works 8:30 to 6, but she wants to build in at least some time for herself to make sure things run smoothly.]

Please stop by at any time. I want to make sure that the Youth Center is filling the needs of our community.

Thank you for your time, and I look forward to meeting all of you.

[ooc: Open action at the Youth Center -- Stiles, Jem & any other Youth Center regulars, we can handwave Uhura meeting you, or play it out in here!]

[It's Uhura and yet not Uhura at the same time. She smiles at the camera.]

I thought everyone could use a little cheering up.

[She pulls out a harp and begins to sing.]

[The sound of her music draws the Uhura we know and love up and out of her room.]

Excuse me. What are you doing in my home?

[ voice - filtered to Penny ]
Hey Penny, I'm sorry for bailing on you last night. I hope you got home all right. Can we talk?

[ voice - filtered to Karaoke Adam even though he's an NPC ]
Thanks again for last night. You are a true gentleman.

[accidental voice]
[Uhura thought she had turned the device off, but nope, she's just switched it to public. Can you blame her? Chekov's started tinkering with his toys in the living room again and he's making a huge racket. And despite Adam's magical hangover remedy, her head still really hurts.]

Chekov, could you PLEASE keep it down?

[By all rights, this should be filtered, but somebody's too crampy to care]

Penny, sorry for the late notice. I won't be able to make it to the Welcome Center today.

[She tries her best to stifle a groan as she's abruptly hit with sucker punch from Mother Nature]

And can you recommend a doctor?

[accidental video]
[There's a heart on Uhura's nightstand. An actual, physical heart. An actual, physical, Vulcan heart, if we're going to get precise about it. Uhura doesn't know about it yet.

Her alarm goes off and she reaches blearily to turn it off. But instead of finding her alarm, her hand lands on the warm, sticky heart. Her eyes fly open and she sits straight up in bed.]

What the hell?!?!

[Now she does.]

[voice message to the police]

[Her voice is a little shaky but otherwise calm.]

Somebody's heart is in my bedroom. I don't know if this part of a curse or someone's sick idea of a joke.
26 January 2013 @ 12:17 pm

[Uhura gives the camera a tight-lipped smile. She's dressed in an obnoxious red, white, and blue sweater, with an obscenely big American flagpin, and...holy shit, is that an eagle on her shoulder, trying to eat her hair?]

In honor of today's curse, I'll be offering free lessons on Earth's history, with a special focus on the era of the American Empire.

[Because bitch, she knows why this eagle is here and City you are not as cute as you think you are.]

I hope nobody's allergic to birds.

[ooc: She's at the Welcome Center for anyone who wants to action!]

[ video ]

[Uhura is hiding in a convenience store. She doesn't have much time to post, so she doesn't bother with filters.]

Ensign Chekov, report.

[She's shaking just a little. Seeing Spock here, like this... She wasn't ready. Isn't ready. But her top priority right now (other than staying alive) is ascertaining the status of her subordinate.]

[ voice ]

[Those who know Uhura may be able to tell that she sounds a little under the weather, but overall she does a pretty good job of sounding just curious.]

That curse from Saturday... does anyone know whether what you saw is real?

[ action ]

[Uhura's vision from Saturday has upset her more than it should have. She hasn't talked to anyone about it because she has no idea what to say.

She's currently sitting on the edge of the fountain, nursing a beer as she stares up at the night sky.]

background )

So it turns out there's not much market here for linguists, and a friend told me I should try my luck posting on the network.

I'm fluent in half a dozen languages, specialize in computer programming, and if all else fails [with a bit of a laugh] I make a mean Cardassian Sunrise.

[ooc: Feel free to recognize Uhura from the bar fight (and it's not too late to jump in)! The poking of fun is highly encouraged.]

[video / action]

[Peter strolls across the screen.]

Jesus Christ, Howl, what'd you do the place?

[He picks up one of Uhura's bras and holds it up to his chest.]

Did you piss Sophie off? [peering closer] No, don't think they're big enough.

[Uhura walks in and stops.]

Excuse me? Who are you?

[Peter leers and the feed cuts off]

[About twenty minutes later, the feed clicks back on. Peter is outside the basement door. He looks a little worse for the wear.]

That bitch is crazy.

[ooc: Peter's around for 4th wall! Let me know which of them you want to respond in your comment.]
08 October 2012 @ 07:42 am
[Uhura stands against a wall in a dark section of the Underground. She hasn't seen any people yet, and she had quickly discovered that her communicator wasn't working. There was a device at her feet, though, that seemed to do the same thing. It took her a few moments to figure out how to record with it.]

My name is Lieutenant Uhura of the USS Enterprise. If you can hear this message, please respond.

[Of course, there's no guarantee that the people here speak Standard. If this was a Federation device, it would automatically translate her message into every known language. But it's not, so she's just going to have to do that herself. She starts with Swahili.]

Jina langu ni Luteni Uhura ya Enterprise USS. Kama unaweza kusikia ujumbe huu, tafadhali kujibu.

[Switching to Romulan]
Taeth 'nhqh 'hh Lt. Uhura --

[A man comes up behind her. Leering, he grabs her shoulder and whispers something in her ear. When she yanks her shoulder free of him, his expression turns ugly.]

You little--

[He tries to attack, but she easily flips him to the ground, knocking him unconcious. She looks annoyed but unafraid.]

Guess it's Standard.

[ooc: Action for Chekov, audio/video for everyone else!]
