The Work of Christmas by Howard Thurman
When the song of angels is stilled, when the star in the sky is gone, when the kings and princes are home, when the shepherds are back with their flock, the work of Christmas begins:
To find the lost, to heal the broken, to feed the hungry, to release the prisoner, to rebuild the nations, to bring peace among the people, to make music in the heart.
May it be so.
The Work of the Enterprise a la Captain Jean-Luc Piccard (really Larry Leonard)
When the hum of the warp core is stilled, when the astrometrics display is gone, when the Romulans and the Ferengi are home, when the Borg are back with their drones, the work of self-diagnostics begins:
To find the Preservers, to heal the Cardassians, to feed Sherman’s planet, to release the miners of Marak II, to rebuild Bajor, to bring peace among the Federation, to make music in the “tlhIngan loD”
Make it so.
Now that’s Christmas in the Alpha Quadrant!
