Happy Star Trek 50th Anniversary! 

I’m so excited! Here’s the main cast as cats!!

Baby Jim - Christmas

So it’s kinda short, and kinda lame, but I was a little rushed! So sorry in advance!

———-

It’s Jimmy’s first Christmas on the Enterprise and you want it to be special. With the help of the rest of the Command crew you decorate Observation room #2 for a surprise Christmas party while Jimmy is in his tutoring session with Spock.

“We need more tinsel on the tree guys!!”

Arms wrap round your waist, “Calm down darlin’. Everything’s gonna be perfect, there’s no reason for you to be runnin’ ‘round like a chicken with your head cut off!”

You lean back into your husband, “I just want everything to be perfect, Len. He’s never had a real Christmas”

“Well, Spock just commed me, they are on their way down now, so quite your fussin’ and put your hat on”

Grumbling your put on the reindeer antlers that Jimmy had picked out for you, “Your hat’s crooked, Santa”

Len batted your hands away, “Leave me be, woman! Look Pasha is having trouble putting on his elf hat, go help him”

Waving your hand, you make your way across the room, “Hey, Pasha. Hey, Pasha. You look like you could use some help”

“Zat vould be much appreciated, Y/N”

You reach out, smoothing down is curls slightly before putting the hat on him. You have to use a bobby pin to make sure the hat didn’t fall of his curly head.

“There! All fixed!” You glance at your watch, “Come on everyone, lets hide before he gets here!”

Once everyone is in position all you have to do is wait for Spock and Jim to walk through the door. Two minutes later you can hear your sons voice, “Uncle Spock, why are we going here? I want to see mommy and daddy”

“You will see your parents in a moment, Jim. First we must go to the Observation room”

Maybe you should have picked someone else to bring Jim here. As Spock likes to remind you, Vulcan’s can’t lie.

As soon as the door swishes open, the Christmas tree lights up and everyone jumps out from their hiding place, shouting “Merry Christmas!!”

Jim’s eyes go wide, his face breaking into a delighted grin. He immediately caught sight of you and ran forward, flinging himself into a hug, “A Christmas party? For me?”

“Yeah, baby, for you. I know you didn’t get to have Christmas parties when you lived on Earth, so we decided to have one on the Enterprise.”

He looked at you with wide blue eyes, “Mommy … do-do I get a present?”

“You get lots of presents, sweetheart. Look under the tree” underneath the tree is overflowing with presents, many of them for the crews former Captain.

Upon seeing that several gifts had his name on them, Jim started to cry. He went around to each and every person, giving them hugs and thanking them.

When it was time to open presents Jim seemed to hesitate. He looked like he didn’t know what to do with so many options, so you reached out and placed a present in his lap.

“Can I open it?”

“Yes you can”

“Who’s it from”

Nyota stepped forward, “That one is from me and your Uncle Spock, Jimmy”

Tearing into the paper, Jim pulled out hand painted planets, “Those are the founding planets of the Federation, Jim. They are meant to be hung on the ceiling, and they have the ability to glow in the dark.”

Jim jumped up, tackling both of them into a hug, “Thank you, Auntie Ny, thank you, Uncle Spock”

Nyota reached down, squeezing Jim tightly, “You’re welcome, Jimmy” she glanced up “It looks like Uncle Scotty has your next gift”

Jim grinned and ran over to Scotty, who scooped the boy up and had him open the present in his lap. Scotty had made a perfect replication of the USS Enterprise, the toy even had the ability to fly with a remote control that was modeled after the helmsman console.

Sulu gave Jim a plant that would sing him lullabies, Pavel got him a new PADD, Len got him a doctor’s kit, and you had gotten him a book of planets and several star maps.

Jim couldn’t have been happier. Several crew members had worked together to create a Captain’s Assistant uniform for Jim, so he looked like he was on duty. Jim had immediately put it on, and started flying his model Enterprise around the room.

Several hours later, close to midnight, Jim finally crashes. Everyone quietly ushers you, Len, and Jim out of the room, telling you that they will clean everything up.

“Wake up, Jimmy. You have to get ready for bed”

Jim just mumbled something into your shoulder.

“What was that?”

“This was the best Christmas ever. I love you, mommy, love you, daddy”

“We love you too, Jimmy”

“’m really glad that I got to stay with you”

“We are too” you whisper, kissing the top of his head

Jim sits back, looking at you with sleepy eyes, “I didn’t get you anything for Christmas”

“You did though, you gave us you. You’re our son, Jimmy. The greatest gift you could ever give the two of us is your love.”

He nodded sleepily, and now that he was in pajamas, you tucked him into bed and both you and Len quietly take your leave.

” I’m really glad we did that, darlin’”

“I am too Len. He was so happy, and it made me happy to see him actually enjoying his childhood”

Len spins you around gently, pulling you forward by your hips, “Merry Christmas, Y/N”

“Merry Christmas, Len”
