Shore Leave, A fan run Science Fiction Convention
On stardate 3025, the crew of the USS Enterprise arrived at a planet in the Omicron Delta region. A landing party, which included Chief Medical Officer McCoy and Helmsman Sulu, was sent down to explore the planet.
Shortly after their arrival, Mister Sulu asked Doctor McCoy whether he thought the captain might authorize shore leave for the crew. The doctor agreed that the planet seemed well suited, adding, "It's like something out of Alice in Wonderland."
A short time later, Doctor McCoy encountered a talking white rabbit, followed moments later by a young girl in a gingham dress.
