Mission: Episode 5 - It Would Be Their Pleasure
Location: Latinum Sunset Casino and Restaurant
Timeline: MD010 2200 hrs

Azure entered the lobby dressed in a figure-hugging red cocktail dress. She was glad for a little shoreleave and planned to make the most of it.

Sha’Zen was dressed in her people's native clothing, the gil'Zar, a blouse and trousers combination made from a light-weight, translucent natural fibre known as na'Ran. Sernumi IV being a jungle world, it allowed her people to rain cool and communicate through the colour changes in their skin.

Last in was the trill who was wearing a simple yet elegant black min dress. She was feeling happy about getting a chance to go out and stretch her legs.

"Hey, Red, looking good." Azure said to Jomaus.

"Thanks." the white spotted Trill replied, " After being on the Bridge and in the Medical Bay for all this time it feels good to be out and about."

"Indeed." Sha'Zen replied. "Metal boxes can be so restricting. I prefer the open jungles of my home."

"Luckily for you. I grew up on Federation starships. I knew my way around most of the designs before I'd ever set foot on a planet." Replied the trill a slight grin on her face.

"Enough standing around, let's get our drink on." Azure said.

The trill smiled as she followed her ship mates. She was very thirsty and a drink would be great right now.

"That is not a good idea, alcohol as an adverse effect on my metabolism." Sha'Zen protested.

"Me too, that's why its so much fun." Azure said leading the way to the bar.

Miex smiled as they reached the bar and took some seats at the bar. " I'll have an Andorian brandy and what do you want girls?" She asked.

"I'll take a glass of firewine." Azure said. "I don't like the Andorian stuff."

"I'll try a glass of Andorian brandy." Sha'Zen replied.

" You should. It's strong stuff. " The trill replied as she had her drink delivered and took a swig of the powerful alcohol.

The others' drinks came and Sha'Zen took a sip. "Sooth, is how I believe the humans describe it."

"Indeed." Azure said with a laugh. "Now, we have our drinks, whose up for some black jack?" she asked.

"Been a long time since I've played cards but sure i'd be up for a game." The trill replied as the barkeep handed
her drink.

Azure led the way to the nearest black jack table. "What's the buy in?" She asked the croupier.

"100 credits, ma'am." He replied.

"Sounds good." Azure said handing over her credit chip.

"How do you play this game?" Sha'Zen asked.

"Rather simple. You have to get 21 or closest on you're cards without the dealer getting a 21 on their cards." The trill replied hoping she wasn't incorrect.

"It indeed sounds simple." Sha'Zen replied.

"It is when you get the hang of it." Replied Miex as the cards dealer started dealing.

"Hello, pretty ladies, can I buy you each a drink and see where it leads?" A Ferengi called Klump said.

"Thank you," Sha'Zen said. "I'll have a red wine."

"Excellent choice." Klump said with a wide smile and reached out to put his arm around her shoulder.

No sooner had he touched her, when she span 'round and placed the blade of one of her N'Zhara at his throat.

"My acceptance of your drink offer was not an invitation for you to touch me." She said.

Managing to keep a straight face., Azure said to Klump. "I suggest you leave while you still have all your limbs, my friend doesn't take kind to unwanted touching, and tends to hack off the offending limb."

A look of terror in his face he said. "Sorry, ladies, I just remembered a prior engagement." an run away as fast as his short legs could carry him.

Once he was gone, Azure burst out laughing. "He's not going to try that again anytime soon." She said.
