Summary: It is very cold in space.

Author's Notes: This is set during "Twilight" and can be viewed as a sequel to "Just Yesterday" and is in canon with it. Second in a series of at least three drabbles, originally written for the Trek100 "letter" challenge.

'…I regret to inform you that your request for detached duty on Ceti Alpha Five has been denied. Enterprise will be patrolling this sector and your expertise is required at Tactical. No leave or resignation requests are being considered during this time of high alert.'

"Trip? Captain…would you care to explain this?"

"Malcolm, I know you'd appreciate seeing the Cap'n more often, but T'Pol says it just upsets him. Face it—it's over, Malcolm. We've all lost people—now maybe you know how I felt losing Lizzie. What were you tellin' me then about accepting it and movin' on?"
