Ficlet: Frontier

For last week's b7friday topic of Star One, 110 words, set in season 1.


"It's over, Durkim. I'm just peripheral to your life. You're a bonded man."

"I'm not!"

"You are--to your job. I need more than that. I need to matter."

"So, where are you going? To some miserable frontier world?"

Lurena laughed. "Oh yes, you got that right. Frontier is indeed the operative word."

"I'll change," Durkim said desperately.

"Really? No more long hours in the office? No forgetting we were going to meet?"

Durkim hesitated.

"No. I thought not."

On her way to Star One, Lurena thought that it was rather a pity that Bento would never know just how much she had trumped him in devotion to the Federation.
