Hikaru Sulu’s 15 and washing tables in the Roadhouse when a young boy stumbles through the door, covered in blood.
The curly-haired boy can’t be more than 10 or 11, he thinks, hollering for his parents even as he pulls out the gun he’s been trained to use since he was a kid. He’s met with a blank look and a couple of blinks before the kid straight-out collapses to the ground, unconscious.
Holy water, salt… The Sulus run all the tests, making sure the kid isn’t some sort of demon, or another creature’s trap. But everything indicates human, so they gently wash the blood off his face, set him on a spare bed, and wait for him to wake up so they can find out what happened.
The boy wakes up screaming in Russian. When they finally calm him down, he speaks in slow broken English, but with the help of a Roadhouse regular and an online translator, they manage to piece the story together. His name is Pavel Chekov, and his family was visiting the US on vacation. But then something - he swears he didn’t see what it was, and considering how traumatic the experience must have been, they give him the benefit of the doubt - attacked their car, and he was the only one who managed to get away. He ran, as fast as he could, and somehow ended up at the Roadhouse.
So if you ship Chulu basically me and vulcanswehaveheardonhigh are running what will henceforth be known as Chulu Week from December 8 to 14 and basically it will be AWESOME.

i want to see sulu pull rank on chekov. like one day they’re on this planet as an away team and sulu is the highest ranking officer so he gets to give orders. or maybe chekov is being stubborn as usual and even though its a silly situation like maybe he doesnt want to go to sickbay after a fight sulu still needs to order him as a superior officer.
