"But that doesn't prove anything," Neelix argued. "That kind of test wouldn't work at all. Watch this."
The Talaxian dragged Harry across the mess hall, where Commander Chakotay was eating lunch with Lieutenants Paris and Torres.
"Pardon me, Commander," Neelix began. "But where was Captain Janeway born?"
"Earth. Indiana," Chakotay answered without hesitation.
"And her dog's name?" Neelix asked.
"Which dog?" Chakotay asked. "Her childhood dog Bramble or her Irish setter Molly?"
"Her mother's name?"
"Her favorite book, color, and Beatles song?"
The first officer fired off the answers, looking puzzled. "What are you up to, Neelix?"
"Oh, nothing." Neelix grinned at Harry. "See what I mean. He passed, and yet they aren't. Now you try."
Harry tried to hide a smirk as he turned to the helmsman. "Hey Tom, what about B'Elanna?"
"What about her?" Tom asked warily.
"Can you name your wife's favorite book, color, and Beatles song?"
"One out of three. Not bad, Flyboy," B'Elanna said, her voice thick with sarcasm.
"Hey!" Tom protested. "How do we know Chakotay's answers were right?" He hit his combadge. "Paris to Janeway."
"Janeway here. What is it, Lieutenant?"
"I was just wondering...um," he gulped. "Would you tell me your favorite book, color, and Beatles song?"
The comm link was silent for a moment as the captain no doubt tried to figure out the joke. At last, she answered. Tom threw up his hands in defeat. "Okay, you win Commander."
"Just what are you playing, Mr. Paris?" the captain asked patiently.
"Yes," Chakotay added. "Just what are we playing?"
Harry laughed. "Rest assured, Captain, that if we were all living in a twentieth century film, then Chakotay would not get deported. But Tom would."
"Good to know, Ensign, thank you. Janeway out."
