So, the little story behind this story is, what would the senior crew wish for in terms of New Year's Resolutions. I guess I'm allowed to speculate, because I just love this show and want to see my favorite "Magnificent Starship Nine" get the most out of the new year. Maybe I'll think of a few myself along the way.

DISCLAIMER: Paramount/Viacom, yeah, you are God. So, why bother with someone like me, who stands nothing gain monetary wise, except getting my ideas out and about.

News Years Resolutions.
