"It isn't in freight room 4." Hikaru Sulu said disappointed.

"Damn, I was certain, that we put it in there last year." Montgomery Scott cursed loudly.

"Obviously not." Leonard McCoy said sarcastically. "Who knows, where you discarded it - drunken from the Christmas-punch as you were?"

"I wasn't more drunken then you." The chief-engineer defended himself.

"Boys, please!" Nyota Uhura tried to stop the discussion before it could escalate. They surely didn't need that yet.

"The Christmas-celebration starts in half an hour and we haven't decorated the tree yet." This was Christine Chapel.

"For that we first must have one." Janice Rand countered.

"We have to come up with something. Christmas without a tree simply can not be." Uhura was - like always - a reasonable person.

"But what? The thing has to be somewhere. We haven't thrown it away, have we?" Sulu asked.

"It is definitely not in the freight rooms 1 till 3. We have already looked three times in any corner." Pavel Chekovs report was not encouraging for the group.

"Such a trouble - because of a stupid plastic-tree." McCoy grumbled aloud.

"A real tree would be much better."

"And where, please, should that come from - here outside in space?", Scotty asked and only got a shrug with the shoulders as answer from the doctor.

"I just think to a real Christmas belongs a real tree." McCoy pointed out.

"Better a plastic-tree then none at all." Uhura said.

"That means, if we find it." Sulu supplemented.

"There is only freight room 5 left for search." Scotty said.

"There are already the Captain and Mr. Spock looking." Rand explained.

"They haven't reported anything yet."

"We should go and help them." McCoy proposed. "Maybe we have luck then."


Said and done. The group went to freight room 5...

...and experienced an unexpected surprise, as the door opened.

"Yes, that's it!"

"Jim oh Jim!"

The groaning sounds of James T. Kirk and Mr. Spock didn't sounded at all like searching for a missing Christmas-tree. The groups exchanged surprised glances.

Then they walked around a large container and stopped death in their tracks when they spotted the Captain and his First Officer - half naked. Jims red Santa Claus costume - traditionally the Captain's rule at the Holy Night - laid on the ground, just as Spock's uniform-shirt. Enthusiastically hands just tucked at black trousers on both sides.

Embarrassing silence as both parties saw each other, also a few blushed faces, hastily turned away exes here, embarrassed grasping for the clothes there - were the result of the surprisingly encounter. There also was a deadly silence for a while.

Finally McCoy spoke up. "Jim do you have something misunderstood with the "Santa Claus is coming"-song?"
