Lieutenant Sulu led the newly-returned Janice Rand into his quarters for the first time in a year. Not a plant, weapon, or ancient Japanese artifact was out of place. The window was polished, and there weren't any dirty clothes draped over various bits of furniture. Even the desk was tidy.

Janice loved the change. "Oh, Hikaru, you cleaned up for me!"

Sulu chuckled. "Not exactly."

"What do you mean? You even made the bed!" Her eyes were sparkling like fine liquor.

"I, uh, outsourced the problem."

"Outsourced?"

"There's not much Chekov won't do for a bottle of real Earth vodka."
