“Captain’s log, the enterprise has been sumoned to star base 12 in order to asist in a project that could revolutionize power consuption in the federation fleet. ”
Star base 12
Captain mccomic,commander sotril and chief engineer pitcarin sat with several starbase officers from the base including comadore mandez,his aid miss piper and a few civilians.
“Zefren cocren’s warp flight changed every thing for humanity. Soon humanity united. Made contact with alien races. The federation was formed. We began to explore the galaxy. We can’t just sit on our laurels. We must keep going. Keep trying to excel'” comadore mandez said.
“With them in mind,it is my plesure to present dr. Richard daystorm and dr. Lary marvic on what we hope will revolutionize the fleet!” He said.
The african American civiliam scientist went to the lacturn. “Earth has gone though a series of changes. We have warp drive,we have explored the galaxy. One thing has gone relitivly unchanged. Power! Our saurce of power is the same. We only have so much power to go around. The pie stays the same. No one has atempted to change the pie!” Dr. Richard daystorm said.
Lary marvic took the lacturn. “The first law of thermal dynamics is nothing is created or destroyed. The second is that energy depletes over time. The law of entropy. There is no sutch thing as perpetual motion but we have come close!” Marvic said.
“This is a prototype for a new power unit. We call it mathesilah.”Daystorm said. Marvic and several aides whealed in a device on an anti grav cart. The female took the sheat off of the cart.
“This device is designed to recycle energy. It will generate energy not foever but we believe that it could generate power for ten years. “Daystorm said.
“This is of course. It is all experimental. It has not been tested in actual use until now!” Daystorm said.
“Star fleet has aproved the experimental testing of the mathuseluh system. ” commadore mandez said.
Addison listened intently to this presentation. As she listened to it,she thought to herself ,please tell me your not going to put this untested equipment in the enterprise.
“We will be using a test ship designed for testing new equipment !” Marvic said. Addison breathed a sigh of relief.
“Due to the danger associated with an experiment sutch as this,the vessel will be unmaned. The test ship will be monitored by another ship that will monitor it from a distence. The ship will have a fail safe that will take over the ship if needed. “marvic said.
“That is where the enterprise comes in! The enterprise will monitor the ship from a safe but close distence. We will be testing it in a remote area. We can’t totally garante safty of those involved but we do our best!” The commadore said.
Addison had her reservation about this mission. It seamed like potentialy a colosial waste of time if it failed. Although they took every proqaution,nothing was error or danger proof.
She tried to gage the reaction of her chief engineer. The usually calm pitcarin seamed uncharistically gitty. He seamed excited by it. She could not figure out asistent chief engineer kyile. He did not seam gitty but did not get the impreson he oposed it.
She looked over to her most stoic advisor. Security chief gioto was the type who could find a cloud in every silver lining. He had a look on his face like this was the biggest bunch of targ manure he had ever seen. She was not sure how she felt about all this. This was not her area of expertise. She relied on others. She was stil sceptical.
“We will lunch in nine hours! “The commidore said. The brefing was ajurned. Every one got up. Addison and sotril went over to daystorm and marvic. “We will arange qurters for you!” Addison said. “Thank you captain. You must be very excited. You get to be a part of history in the making !”daystorm said. “Arnt i part of history every second of the day?” Addison asked. Marvic laughed.
Addison and sotril left the room.”Get every thing into place. I will be back abored shortly! I have something i need to do!” Addison said. “Of course. I will get every thing started!”sotril said. “Thank you commander!” Addison said.
Star base 12
She went to the bar. She looked around and saw lt arial shaw. “Arial! “Addison said. “Hello addy! Please sit!” She said. “I was suprised to see you hear. You spend most of your time on sb 11!” She said. ” I go back and forth. I came hear to see you!” She said. “Oh?” Addison said.
“Its about Alison crenic. We would like you to give a satement. “Shaw said. “What will happen to her?” She asked. “Frankly we don’t have a clue. She will be under pysch hold for the time being. She could face multiple charges. There are multiple isues. If convicted she could spend alot of time in a rehab colony. Is that best? Can she be rehibilitated. There is the question of how she got where she was!”shaw said.
“I don’t know what to say? I don’t have any recomendations. A part of me wants to lock her up and throw away the key. She was my friend. I am not sure that’s her. I don’t want to remember Alison that way especially if this is not her!”she said.
“The best medical minds in the federation dont have a clue. You should stil be heard even if you don’t know. Say that! ” shaw said. “I will write something! Who has jurisdiction?” She said.
“Star fleet want it sense she did damage to star fleet. Federation justice department claims jurisdiction as does others. It will probably go before the supreme court! This is new ground!” Shaw said.
“I see! I get that satement to you as quickly as posible!” Addison said. “Thank you addy!” Shaw said.
“Is there no clue as to how she got acros the space or worked with the romulons?”Addison asked. “Not yet no. She is not forthcoming unfortunately!” Shaw said. “I see!” Addison said.
Addison decided to confur with two officers she knew would be on either side of this issue. Chief pitcarin and lt comander gioto.
“Ok! Why is this a good idea commander?”Addison said. “The science behind it is sound. The idea has merit. I think it can work! If it does it will alow us to expand our exploration of the galaxy with less layovers and at the same time give a leg up with the Klingons,romulons and tholiens. This could be a huge win!”pitcarin exclaimed.
“Commander giito i assume you have a different view?” Addison asked. “I do Addison. This is pure targ minure. You can’t garane something goes wrong. If even conponent craps out,the whole thing will go bust! If it goes wrong in a remote area its over. You will have to have a conventional back up!” The sicurity chief said.
“We can provide multiple reduntcies. We can almost gurente gioto’s syinerio won’t play out!” The chief engineer said. “You can’t totally asure that these reduntcies won’t fail! The titanic was taken down by a smal rudder! It is too big of a risk! I can’t believe your letting your exuberance cloud your reason and objectivity!” Pitcarin said.
“His doom and gloom syinerio is posible but not probible. As i recal the transporter was highly critisized. There are still detractors. This can work!” Pircarin said.
“Well i gues we will find out!” Addison said. She dismished the two. The two left the room. The door closed.
“It is good to be back hear! I helped build this ship. I designed the constitution class starship amoung orthers. The constitution class is definitely my favorite !”marvic said. “We all love it. When i completed my traning i figured i would be asigned to a frigate or a ground instilation. I was thriled to be asigned to the enterprise!” Yeoman smith said.
“Even stil in its infantcy it had already made history. I was thriled when the enterprise was asigned to monitor the experiment. This is going to be both myine and doctor daystorm’s crowning achevement!” Marvic said. “You don’t doubt that will work? “Smith asked. “Not for a second! History is going to be made. I am very confident that this will work!”marvic said. Smith was not convinced that he really felt that way. She knew that he would not show fear. He would show strength until the very end.
S.s clarks sumit
The commanding officer was beamed from the sleeper ship to the clarks sumit. The captain decided to have only the group’s leader brought abored at for now.he would decide on the orthers once the leader was awake.
The doctor revived the commander. The patcient began to wake up. He was grogy at first. Then he became more and more luscent.
“Where am i?” The indien looking man said. ” your on a human vessel. We are a civilian vessel but we are part of the federation. “The captain said.
“Federation?” The man asked.”united federation of planets. A multi species alience that includes humanity. The capital is on earth!” The captain said. “Earth stil excist. I feared humanity might have destroyed itself !” The man said.
“We came close a few times. We chose to servive. We did more then then that. We thrived.” The captain said.
“I did not catch your name captain!” The patcient said.” My apologies. I am captain r.m merek. You are abored the starship clarks sumit. We estimate that it has been about three hundred years!” Merek said.
“My name is khan! “He said. “Khan! What was the perpose of your space flight?”merek asked.”we were hoping to settle a new world. Start fresh. I believed that humana on earth were doomed. We decided that if humanity was incisting on there going to the galows,we should step aside and let them. We are a group with common goals. We were a united group. We believe we could create a better society. ” Khan said.
“I think that we have created a world you will be proud of. We did almost destroy ourselves. At the last minute,we pulled back. We made the hard decisions.it paid off. “The captain said.
The man seamed sceptical. The captain could detect that scepticism in his vioce. The captain did not why. He senced he was mising something . He was not sure what it was. She suspected that it was a key clue to the mystery.
End of part two.
Alison was sent to the psiciatric facility on elba two. It was unclear if she was Alison. She may have just been reanimated. Her old friend Addison perfered to think that Alison was dead. No one knew the truth. It could not be known.
Alison was remended to the facility on elba. She was under the authority of the mental health commision. She could stil be tried for several charges. The justice department was monitoring the case.
She was involved in therapy seasons with a single pycologest and in groups. The federation was not really sure what to do with her.
“They are all afraid of me. I have heard some refer to me as the zombie !” She said. “That is unkind. “The doctor said. “Is it not acurate?” She asked. “Look you are a person regardless!” Dr. Eldin said.
“I don’t feel like one most days doctor !”she said. “I know this is all difficult !”he said. “A part of me wishes i had died on that ship or in the battle!” She said. “You don’t really meen that!” Dr. Eldin said. “I don’t know. I just don’t know !” She said.
She was returned to her cell. The minute she entered,the force field came back on. Nothing made sense. She did not know if it would.
” captain’s log we are curently following up on reports of a derilect ship that may be from earth’s past. We have just had a sighting of the vessel in nutral space and are looking into it!” The captain said.
“I can’t help but think we are on a wild goose chase !” Helm officer said. “I really don’t see how. Everything seams to indicate that this is the real deal!” The science officer said.
“Lets just see what’s turns up!” The captain admonished his bridge crew. They all agreed.
The vessel went in further. The science officer had enhanced the sensors.
The ship went further into the reigion. They came upon the ship. “I have located the derilect. Sending coordinates to the helm!” The science officer reported. “I have it! “The helm reported. “Set a course for that ship! “The captain ordered.
The ship arived at the site of the derilect. “Vessel apears to be adrift'”the science officer said. ” have you identified it?” The captain asked.
“Vessel is a dy 100. It is from earth'” the science officer said. “Dy 100 that was before warp drive was discovered by zefrem cocren. Are we sure on that?” The captain asked.
“Positive id “the science oficer said. “It is odd that such a vessel would be this far out! ” first officer said. “Agreed. Life signs!” The captain asked.
“I am detecting life signs but they are faint. Many pre warp vesels used cyonic sleep. This could be a sleaper ship. “The science officer said.
“Suspended animation. That does not sound like fun'” the helm said. “Get in a good nap though!” The navigator said.
The vessel neared the old vessel. The vesel went near the old ship. “The vessel is listed as the botony bay. Historical data banks note its excistence but little else!”the science officer said.
“Information of those days were fragmented. Much of the archives were destroyed In the third world war. ” The first officer said.
“We are in transporter range'” a crewman said. “Very well. Stand by to beam over landing parties. Send to command our findings. ” The captain said.
The team emurged on the ship. The ship was one big coridor. There were catpartments with people.
“Most of them are alive! Remarcible to have servived all these years !” A field science officer said. “Imagine waking up after all these years. Warp drive,contact with alien worlds,united earth,the federation,Montreal stil not having a decent sports team! “The captain said.
“I believe this one may be the leader! Usually the commander was to be the first to be revived. He could decide rather it was safe for the rest of the crew to be revived!” The doctor said.
“I wish we had more information. We going in blind. For all we know we could be waking up colnel green !” The captain said. “Colnel green died ,did he not?” A younger crewman said.
“Do we revive? Its your call” the doctor said. “Weird as the c.o of a civiian ship,i did not think i would have to make a call like this. One that could have impact on the entire human race maybe even the federation and beyond. Well it is just the captain. Procede! “The captain ordered.
The doctor took out a hypo spray. Two engineering crewman opened the shelf. The self had a retractable iner shelf. The ocupent looked as though he was from india.
The captain gave the go ahead to the doctor. The doctor attached the medical instrament to his neck. He aplied the hypo spray to the patcient.
The man started to wake up. The man started to become more alert. The man began to become aware of who and where he was.
A legend had just returned. Now nothing would be the same. Humanity was about to be turned upside down.
End of part 1
U.s. s enterprise
“Captain! Incoming message! Its from captain mccomic on the faragut!” Palmer said. “On screen!” Kirk ordered. Lt. Palmer transfered the image to the view screen.
“Captain kirk,i don’t know if you heard but kedair turned on kizerek. The fleet left the battle. Jim i believe that kedair plans on killing the chancellor. Consolidate power then attack us!” Addison said.
“Kor was right. Kidair was the real threat not kizerek!” Kirk said.”we will have to move fast on this. I am not sure how mutch time we have!” Addison said.
“I doubt the Klingon will believe us over subspace. We will have to deliver it in person. “Kirk said.”please tell me your not really considering going into Klingon space ?”mccoy asked. “It may be our only option! “Spock said.
“Care for a road trip jim” Addison asked. “I’m game if you are Addison!” Kirk responded. “Leta do it. I will meat you at the border!” Addy said. “You got it!”kirk said. The screen faided.
“I thought one of you was bad. She is like you in a dress. “Mccoy commented. “Well she was on the short list to command the enterprise! “Kirk said. “What a chioce!”the doctor replied.
“Mr. Dassale, set course for the nutral zone. Maximum warp. “Kirk ordered. The navigator ploted the course. “Course ploted and engaged. “Sulu said. The enterprise went to warp.
Qurters of spock
Spock was in qiet meditation. The chime rang. “Come in!” Spock said. It was kirk. “Spock! Whats going on with you and captain mccomic? It not like you!”kirk said. “It is a private matter captain. I would rather not discus it. “Spock said.
“You never served together. Records indicate that you have never met. Yet there seams to be something. ” Kirk said. “PLEASE respect my feelings on this!”spock said. “Very well!” Kirk said.
“We are atempt to cross hear. It is an area of space the Klingon call swamp of doom. It is not heavily potroled due to its chaotic turbulence.”Addison said.
“So we are atempting to traval into a place the klingon are leary of going into!” Ryian asked. “Yes ry!”Addison said.
“It is our only option !” Sotril said. every one knew that she was corect. It would be easier to go to the border,they would probably not be receved. They may not be receved this way. Perhaps they had a chance. They all hoped so.
“We are now at the border captain!” Dassale said. “Nutrilize warp mr. Sulu!”kirk ordered. The warp engines were disengaged. “Warp drive is off line!”‘dassale reported. “Now we wait !” Kirk said. ” Why is it that starship captain’s think that there is safety in numbers when atempting something fool hardy?”mccoy asked. “You meen there is not!” He asked. “Funy!” The dr responded.
The faragut arived and came along side them. “We are being hailed!” Lt. Palmer said. “On screen!” Kirk ordered. “Ready when you are addy!”kirk said. “Lets do it!” She said in response.
The two ships entered the are known as the swamp of doom. The ship found that the area was very chaotic. There were funel like waves that seamed to form out of no where. Sansors seamed to go in and out.
“Captain’s log,the enterprise and faragut have spent several hours in a waste land. We have come across what we believe in an egress from this desolate area and hopfuly aces to a Klingon ship. Hopfully not one aligned with kedair. ”
“Now entering normal space.”dasale anounced. “Not a moment too soon. I’m not sure my engines could hold out much longer. “Scoty said. “I’m glad we don’t have to find out!” Kirk said. “Aye me too!” He said.
“I have located a Klingon ship. ” Spock anonced. “Set course for the Klingon vessel!” Kirk said. “Really jim! That’s your strategy !”dr. Mccoy said. The enterprise and faragut headed for the ship.
“Excellentcy! Detecting two federation ships. They have set course for us!” A scaning officer reported. “Are there weapons on?”the commander asked. “Negative ! They are on an intercept course with us commander!” The scaning officer said. “We are being hailed!” The com officer said. “On screen!”the commander ordered.
“Human why are you wasting my time?” The commander incisted on knowing. “I’m captain james t kirk of the starship enterprise. I am hear to inform you that i believe that kedair will try to kill the chancellor! “Kirk said. “Why should i believe that?” He asked.
“He killed kezerek!” Kirk said. “Those are stories. Rumors. There is no proof of that. I have no reason to believe you. ” the commander said. “We have proof that kedair was involved in the destruction of his ship. This was an dishonorable act!” He said. The commander considered it.
“Kezerek was a fool. He needed to be eliminated. “The commander said. “What of the chancellor. There are ways to unseat a chancellor,i doubt kedair will adhere to them. “Kirk said. ” What do you want me to do?”the commander asked. “Inform your chancellor! “Kirk said. “You have told me nothing just a theory. “He said.
“If I’m right and you did not listen to me,his death is your hands commander. Sooner or later your complacentcy will be made known. I don’t think you want to risk that do you?” Kirk asked.
The commander considered it. He ended the transmison. “What does that mean?”gioto asked.”i wish i knew!”kirk answered.
“Captain! I believe i have located a series of transporter traces. I believe i can locate the ship. I believe the ship is for lack of a better term leep froging to qonos! “Spock said.
“Acording to pitcarin it can only go a short distence! “Kirk said.”corect! ” scoty said.
“Can you predict where they will go!” Kirk asked. “Not to a total certainty but i believe i can get us close. It is not going to be certain of acuracy. It is unfortunately a guising game!” Spock said. ” Lets get to it. Send the coordinates to the navagator!” Kirk ordered. “Right away!” Spock said.
“Jim! Are you forgetting that we are in Klingon space? Are you also forgetting that there is a Klingon ship off our bow?”dr. McCoy asked. “No I’m not. Its two agenst one. Palmer send all the data we have.”kirk said. “This is quite a gamble!”mccoy said. “Bigest risk always are!”kirk said. “Your going to drive me to drink. Its a good thing romulan asle is iligal” he said.
The two ships went to warp. “Vesel is not persuing!” Spock said. “Will we make it in time?” Gioto asked. “Unfortunately that is any ones gues!” Kirk said.
The prototype completed another transport. “Sir we have incoming. Its the enterprise and faragut. “The tactical officer reported. “I knew we would meet again!” Kedair said.
“Do we transport again?” The first officer inquired. “Not yet! First we take care of some unfinished business . Then i will deal with the chancellor !” Kedair said.
“Plot an intercept!” Kedair ordered. The helm ploted the intercept. The vessel headed for the two ships.
“Detecting a transporter beam!”spock said. “All decks stand by. We are about to be hit!”kirk anounced. The ship emerged off the beam. The vessel opened fire. There were several explosions thoughout the ship.
The faragut fired on the ship. The faragut hoped to draw away from the orther ship. Then the ship beamed away.
Another beam emurged,this one right near the feragut. The ship opened fire on the faragut. Several decks were hit.
“Damage on multiple decks!”sotril said. The ship beamed away again.
“Is there any way we can jam that thing?” Addison asked. “Not that i am aware of? “Sotril said. “I am gusing that they have reinforced the shields so we may not be able to use the last trick. ” Ryian said. “I had a thought about that myself !” Addison said.
The faragut returned fire on the vessel. The vesel was hit. The vesel beamed away. The vessel emurged and hit the enterprise.
“Is this how it is going to go from now on?” Dr. Mccoy asked. “It very well could !” Kirk said.
A mine was beamed off of the faragut. The faragut slamed into it then veered off. The mine exploded but the faragut rode the wave.
“Good work hallak!” She said. The orion noded. Mines beamed near the enterprise. There were multiple mines. The mines detonated. The bridge was hit.
Kirk fell to the ground unconscious. The reer of the bridge was hit. Another explosion ocured right near spock’s station. Spock had dodged the attack. The ship beamed more mines near the enterprise. The mines kept detonating.
The helm and navigator was hit. Sulu fell to the ground. Dassale was able to get away just in time.spock went to the helm.
The enterprise went to warp. The mines stil came. The ship was getting pumaled by the mines. “They have to run out of mines eventually don’t they?”palmer asked. “Eventually yes lt!”spock said. The com lt does not find that comforting.
The faragut was cut off from getting to the enterprise. The Klingon vesel beamed back in and fired on the faragut. The faragut was hit multiple times.
The faragut returned fire on the Klingon prototype. The prototype fired photpn torpedoes then beamed out.
“Addy i have an idea! “Sotril said.”report! ” Addison ordered.”the transporter puts off a lot of heat. I believe the ship may over heat. “Sotril said. “That will take time?”smith asked. “Do you have an idea how to acelerate this process?” Addison asked.”i believe i do!” Sotril said. “I thought you might!” Addison said.
The Klingon vesel beamed in. The faragut emited a masive energy signiture near the prototype. The enterprise then fired on the prototype. The ship could not beam out. They were traped.
“The transporter is off line!” A tech anounced. ” We will deal with them the old feshoned way. “Kedair said.
The Klingon prototype opened fire on the faragut. The enterprise fired on the Klingon warship. The faragut folowed though and hit the prototype as well.
Gioto find a way to target the transporter. The faragut and enterprise fired simultaneously on the transporter room. The transporter exploded. This time it would not be repaired as easily. The feragut hit the area again just to be sure.
The prototype hit back. The two ships were hit. The ships hit back.
Several Klingon vesels arived. The fleet fired on the prototype. The ship was hit. The ship was uterly destroyed. No trial no execution.
“Mr spock message from Klingon flagship. We are to leave at once or we will be destroyed!” She said. “There is graditude for ya!” Mccoy said. “I am content with abliging to this demand!” Spock said. No one disagred.
Mccoy enteted. “Jim is resting but he will be fine!” The doctor said. “I find that news quite agreible thank you!”spock said.
“So what’s going on with you and captain mccomic?” Mccoy said. “Dr it is a private matter!” Spock said. “Its unlike you. Not that any one knows what your like. Except mayby lela kiromie. I’m not sure even her. “Mccoy said.
“If you must know,she has managed to do the one thing i never could. Gain the aproval of my farther!”spock said. “Oh!”mccoy said.
“My farther did not want me to join star fleet. He wanted me to join the vulcan science academy. It has been a point of contention between us!” Spock said.
“So where does Addison mccomic fall into this?” Mccoy asked. “A few years ago,captain mccomic transported my farther on a shartle. They were attacked. Thanks to quick thinkng by then commander mccomic, my farther life was saved. Then she went into labor. My farther delivered her child who she named sarek. They have kept in touch. I find her presence a reminder. I believe humans call it a slap in the face. “Spock said.
“This hardly seams a logical response !”mccoy said. “I believe given the facts it is a resonible response !” Spock said.”its is not her fault. “McCoy said.
“I am aware of that. I just perfer to keep my distence. ” Spock said. “Oh!” He said.
“Captain’s log after puting in for repairs at starbase 12,the enterprise is ready to get underway. “Kirk said.
“May i come in?” Addison said. “I understand your getting underway soon?” Kirk asked. “Yes we are. I assume you are as well? “Addison asked. “Indeed ! We make a good time. We will have to do this again some time!”kirk said. “I am definitely game for it! ” Addison said. “Good!”kirk said. They shock hands. She left.
“Captain’s log,the enterprise has left its randevez with the feragut. We are heading to alpha cinterie to hopfuly get more information on the transporter technology witch rougue Klingon admiral kedair is using as a weapon. “Kirk said in his log.
“Unknown to us,kedair has repaired the damage to his weapon. He is ready for his next target. That target is the university of alpha cinterie. ” Kirk added.
The enterprise arived at warp at the planet. “Now nearing the planet sir! ” sulu reported. “Assume standered orbit “kirk said. Dassale and sulu took the planet into a standered orbit. “Standered orbit acheved. “Dassale reported.
“Alpha cinterie university reports that the profesor is standing by to meat us!” Palmer reported. ” Very good. Mr. Spock with me. Scoty you beter come too. I may need you to translate. “Kirk said. “Very well!” Scoty said.
“Sulu you have the bridge!” Kirk said. “Aye sir!” Sulu said. Sulu got up and went over to the command chair. Kirk,spock,and scoty headed for the turbo lift.
“Are you coming bones?”kirk asked. “Do i have a chioce?” He asked. “Not really !” Kirk said.”that’s what i thought! Fine! ” mccoy said. The landing party left the bridge.
University of alpha cinterie
The landing party emurged. “Captain kirk it is an hornor to meat you. Hello scoty!” Pitcarin said. “Neil it is good to see you!”scoty said. “I assume you were briefed as to why we are hear?” Kirk asked. “Yes i was. The experiment was to create a transporter that could beam a starship across a short distence. The perpose was emurgintcy evacuation. A sun about to go nova for example. We could never get it to work. It was just too much mass and energy. The project was abandoned. “Pitcarin said.
“Is it posible that kedair is drawing on the work of your team?” Spock asked. “That is the strange thing mr. Spock. Two years ago, the orions atempted to steal information on the project. We believed that we had stoped the threat. It seams they may have gotten the information after all. ” Pitcarin said.
“You said it was unfesible! How did the Klingon get it to work?” Dr. Mccoy asked. “Klingon do not feel the need to adhere to safty concerns. I imagine trial and eror.”pitcarin said. “Oh my!” Mccoy said.
“The Klingon have an exstensive inteligence and infiltration aperatis. I imagine they have been keaping a close eye on us. “Spock said.
“I think in time this technology could work. I gues the Klingon did it. “Pitcarin said. “I would like my people to look over the data. “Kirk said.
“Of course. Anything to help my old ship. ” Pitcarin said. “Excellent !” Kirk said.
The Klingon prototype had been careful to traval undetected though federation space. There were rumors that the romulons had cloaking technology. Some Klingon advocated some kind of alience with them but many were oposed to that. They had to do what they could. So far they had not been seen.
They looked for any thing that they could use to mask there signiture until they were ready to strike. They used comets,nubula anything. Some might see this as cowedice. The argument was anything that facilitated the end goal was fair game.
The Klingon war ship went to the planet. The vessel made it to the planet. “We are near the planet!” The tactical officer reported. “Target the university. “The commander ordered.
“Targarted my lord!” The gunner reported. “What about the enterprise?” One of the bridge officers asked. “Oh i have an idea!” Kedair said.
“We have an energy build up near the planet!” Leslie said. “Where? “Sulu asked. Before he could report there was multiple transporter beam near the enterprise.
The mines were beamed in. “Get us out of hear!” Sulu ordered. The vessel tried to get away from the mines. The mines detonated simultaneously. Dassale tried to get the vessel away from the wake.
Taking advantage of the diverson,the prototype headed for the planet. The vessel beamed several mines to the planet.
The mines emerged near the lab. The mine detonated. The explosion was near where pitcarin and the guest were. They all got down.
“What is going on?” A lab tech asked. “Thats kedair!” Kirk said. Kirk tried to hail the enterprise. He could not get though. Kirk surmised that they must be using a jamming device.
Another mine emurged. The mine exploded. The team kept moving. They tried to flea the scene. The team tried to flea the area.
A mine emurged in the lab with archives of the project. This mine was not designed to kill people but was designed to destroy the information. They did not want the federation gaing aces to the transporter technology.
The enterprise was getting bombarded by transporting mines. “I don’t know about you vince but i am really getting tired of this beaming mines!”Sulu commented. “I know what you meen!” Dassale said.
Lt. Leslie studied the area. He tried to find a defense from the weapon. So far it has not been found. The Klingon had bearly been in the fight. They did not need to. The weapon did it for them.
While kedair knew some Klingon warior would resent using transporters instead of brute force. Kedair believed in the school of zustrats that said”s true warior fights totally !” That was what he did.
Kedair believed that it was foolish to use brute force if one did not have to. He believed all was fair in love for war.
The mines continued to emerge. While the landing party helped the students and faculty and orther staf and visators evacuate the complex. There were low casulties. They were not after casulties. They wanted destruction. They wanted to instil fear.
The Klingon ship then beamed out. It did what it wanted to do. It conpleted it task. The ship was gone.
“Kirk to enterprise!” He said. “Go ahead “sulu said. “Satus report!” Kirk asked. “There was damage to the deflector dish. The sansor grid was hevily damaged. There was damage on decks 12,13 and 14. One death but several injuries. “Sulu said. “We may need help on the serface. We were hit prety bad” kirk said. “Standing by captain. “Sulu said.
Medical teams began to beam down. Nurse chepel was among those who beamed to the serface. She got to work. She bagan to treat the victoms of the blast.
Mark piper was treating patcients. “Mark what are you doing hear. I thought you were at johns hopekins?”kirk asked. “I am. I was hear at a medical confrence. We all came to respond to the crises. “Dr. Piper.said. “its good to see you mark. I do wish it was under better circumstances!”kirk said. “You and me both!”kirk said.
“Unfortunately trouble seams to folow jim kirk. ” Mccoy asked. “You have noticed that too!” Piper said.
More ships arived at the battle near the nutral zone. The federation fleet under wesly worked to force the Klingon to withdrawl. The federation worked to deny them that victory. They worked to ware them out.
Wesley asigned several ships to hit nearby ships. The Klingon had underestimated star fleet. Klingon asumed sence humans were generally pacifist that they could not fight. Humans would fight if they had to. It was humans called the pirl harbor syimdrome.
“Excellentcy,kedar is on his way!”a science officer anounced. A d7 war crusher exploded. A scout ship was hit. Two orther ships were damaged. Kizerek believed that the prototype could alter the outcome of the battle.
“Stand by the transporter!” Kedair ordered. The transporter was engaged. The mines were beamed away.
The mines emurged near the Klingon flagship commanded by kizerek. The mines was quickly detonated. The debre hit the flagship. The Klingon vesel fired on the ship.
Kizerek could not believe what he was seing. He had been betrayed. Before he could act. The walls started to crumble. The vessel exploded. Kizerek star had falen before it could ascend.
The Klingon ships perpared to attack the prototype. The destruction of kizerek’s flsgship was unforgivible. Before they could get off a sigle schot,the vessel beamed away.
The Klingon fleet withdrew. They quickly returned to Klingon space. They had disobeyed the direct order of there chancellor. There patrone was dead. They were at the murcy of the Klingon military justice system . It was not known for its murcy. The enlisted persons might have a chance. The sr officers especially the ships commanders did not. They were in deep do do and they knew it.
“Addy the enterprise was damaged in the attack. Alpha cinterie university engineering lab was destroyed. The data was destroyed. ” Sotril said.
“We are getting reports that kedair destroyed kizerek’s ship. Apearently he did not want compitition. The Klingon fleet has retreted. The battle for now is over. ” Sotril said.
“What will kedairs next move be!” Smith asked. “He needed to get kizerek out of the way. He has done that. He needed to get any potential challengers out of way within his own faction. Now he will have to deal with the chancellor. “Addison said.
“He won’t strike the federation next?”Smith asked. “He needs the empire behind him. Then he will deal with us. “Addison said. Addison had no intentions of it coming to that. She wanted to upset kedair’s aple cart.
“Get me captain kirk. Prority one. We have a mesicure to prevent. “She said.
End of part six.
“Cordinates ready captain!”lt. Kyile said. “Thank you mr. Kyle !”kirk said. Kirk and the team went on to the pad. “Ready when you are!” Kyile anounced. “Enerzize!”kirk ordered.
The operator activated the transporter beam. The away team went though the transformation from solid to liquid. They were beamed from the enterprise to the faragauit.
Faragut transporter room.
“Why am i so nervous? It is jim kirk not zefren cocren or the president! “Addison said. ” he is a living legend! “Abby said. “I do not believe in legends living or ortherwise. “Sotril said. “Of course not. “Addy said.
“I have there signal!”takigawa said. “Enersize! “Addy said. The chief activated the beam. The team emurged.
“Welcome abored!” Addy said. Kirk began to remember a pivotal event that he served hear. He remembered an emurgentcy beam out. one that he bearly survived. Kirk began to day dream. He quickly regained his composure. He hoped no one noticed.
“Addy it is good to see you!”kirk said. “And you jim. “She said. He saw abby. His memories took him back to a year erlier. She looked like Elizabeth daner.
“Who are you?” Kirk asked. “I’m abby danner,Elizabeth was my sister!” Daner said. “Were you twins?” Kirk asked. “I’m two years younger but we used to get that a lot. “She said. “I regret what ocured on the enterprise!” Kirk said. “I know. I read your report. I don’t blaime you captain. “Abby said. “I apreciate that!” Kirk said.
“Hello captain remember me?” Yeoman smith asked. “Jones?” Kirk said. “Smith sir!”she said. “Of course.”kirk said.
“How is the ship?” Scoty asked. “We are holding our own scoty. Thanks to all of you.”she said. “You seamed to be doing prety good from what we saw!”mccoy said. “Adison is a constent professional. She does what is neadful to safe gaurd the ship!”sotril said. “That is very evident !” Kirk said.
“Captain’s log the enterprise is efecting its own repairs. At the same time,we are aiding in the repairs of the u.s.s faragut. While there are reports of battles within the Klingon empire. There apears to be some kind of political upheaval. The Klingon government is denying all reports. ” kirk said.
The Klingon fleet loyal to kizerek was able to imobolize the border fleet. The fleet set course for the federation border.
“We have incoming! A Klingon fleet seams to be poised to cross the border into federation space!” The Lexington science officer reported.
“Order the fleet to hold there ground! ” commadore Wesley ordered. “Aye sir! “The com officer said.
The ships fortified there position. They vowed to hold there ground. The ships had all weapons on standby. The two fleets were preparing for the battle both sides knew was coming.
The Klingon fleet was the first to open fire. The Klingon hit them with multiple plasma canions. The Klingon fired on the federation ships. The battle had begun. Kizerek was on the move.
“I apreciate your help jim!” She said. “It is the least i can do. Your finding the ship was a huge help to the efort to stop this threat!” Kirk said. “It is not over yet unfortunately. That threat stil excists!” She said.
“We will stop them. I am confident of that. “Kirk said. “I hope so. It will be an uphil climb.”Addison said. “Everything of substence is difficult. I know we can and will subdue that ship. “Kirk said. “You are arogent!” She said. “I perfer to call it confidence!” Kirk said. She laughed. “So that is what it is!” She said.
“Bridge to captain mccomic!” Sotril said. “Go ahead!” She said. “Klingon forces have struck federation space. The ship commanding the fleet is the vessel believed to be commanded by kizerek!” Sotril said.
“Is there a response from the Klingon government ?” Addison asked. “They claim that the Klingon forces involved in the battle did so against the orders of high command!” Sotril said.
“Kizerek is known to be a disenter to the high command. This could be a rougue operation. ” kirk said.
“It could be plausible denibility. The Klingon could be trying to hedge there bets or lul us into a false sense of security . It does seam to be a bit far fetched. ” Addison said.
“I don’t want to see a war if one can be prevented. I am hopeful that perhaps the organiens will intervein. I am not sure we can count on that. “Kirk said.”i agree. I think that the prototype is a problem. Witch is more troubling i am not sure. ” Addison said. ” Agreed!” Kirk said.
“What are our orders?” Addison asked. “Continue repairs! Await further instructions!”sotril said. “Confirm recipt of order. Will comply!” She said. “Will do sir!”sotril said. “this thing is getting more and more serious by the minute!”kirk said. “It would seam so!” Addison said.
“Captain. We have a weird mesege. It was in code. It said would love to put you though a mind shifter,times makes us friends. One warior to another !”palmer said. “Does the message say where?”kirk asked . “I have coordinents!”palmer said.”jim what’s going on?” Mccoy asked. “Spock take charge!”kirk said.
“Jim what in blazes is going on hear?” Mccoy asked. “I may have a lead?”kirk asked. “If your wrong?”mccoy asked. “The crew may want to learn vulcan!” Kirk said. “That’s not funy!”mccoy said.
“The enterprise just lunched a shartle. No one is sure why!” Ryan said. “I’m sure kirk has his reasons. “Addison said.
“You have spent a little bit of time with him! “Ryan said. “Ryan are you becoming jellous? ” she said. “Well no! He is jim kirk!” He said. She huged him. ”
Kirk landed the shartle. He then left the ship. He walked to the prearanged meating area. He did not bring a phaser.he waited.
A few minutes later a towering figure arived. In a few minutes,he was revealed to be the Klingon kor.
“I was wandering if you were going to show?”kirk asked. “I had to be careful. This is a time when i have no idea who my enimies are. I don’t like politics kirk. I never have. I am part of a noble family so i have been forced to from time to time. I am a warior first and foremost. “Kor said.
“The attack was not sactioned by high command?”kirk asked. “No kizerek is only interested in himself. He would sacrifice all Klingon life if it banefited him.”kor admited.
“What about the commander of the prototype? ” kirk asked. “Kedair is a force of nature. He is beyond arogent. He believes he is a man of destiny. He has all the charisterics of kizerek. They are similar except for one thing! “Kor said.
“What is that?” Kirk asked. “Both would lead there men straght into grethor. Kedairs men would go wilingly! Kizerek is an oportunest who latched on to kedair. Kedair started all this. I believe he will try to finish this!” Kor said.
” Kizerek just latched on to this. A kling on sory!” Kirk said. ” You humans! Yes kidair is the threat not kizerek! Mark my words kirk! “He said.
“Welcome back jim!”mcoy asked. “Thanks. I got a civics lesson from kor!”kirk said. “Sounds like fun!”mcoy said.
“Captain i have done some research into the transporter technology , this technology is very similar to a transporter research iniciated by neil pitcarin.”spock said.
Pitcarn. I am aware of him. He served on the enterprise under pike. Brilliant scientist,not much of a conversationilist thogh. “Scoty said.
“Your one to talk scoty!” Mccoy said. “Hey! It takes one to know one!”scoty said. “The research is erily similar to the research conducted by the klingons.”spock said. “Pitcarin is stil at alpha cinterie u corect?”scoty asked.”yes. That is corect!” Spock said. ” oh my. They are going to hit the university next! Stop any chance of us being able to counter them. “Kirk said.
“I agree!”spock said. “Mr. Dasale plot course for alpha cinterie!”kirk ordered. Dasale set the course. “Course ploted and engaged! ” sulu reported.
“Palmer inform the faragut of what we are planing. “Kirk ordered. “Sending!” Palmer said.
Klingon vessel protptype.
“Transporter repaired and standing by. “The enginer said. “Excellent! Helm set course for alpha cinterie!” The klingon rougue admiral said. The helm agreed. The ship was off. The ship went to warp. A preaditor after new prey.
End of part five
The science officer detected the beam in. The captain ordered the crew to brace for impact. The bridge crew got done and ducked for cover.
The mine was beamed in. The mine imidiatly detonated. The blast hit the comunications officer. The com tech was killed instently.
Part of the bridge was on fire. Adison put out the fire. The faragut fired back on the Klingon prototype. The ship was hit.
“Detecting another transport in progress!” Sotril said. “Where?” Addison demanded to know. “C deck!” Sotril said.
In the crew quarters deck,the mine emurged. The halway was mostly deserted. The mine was detonated. The explosion spread.the emergentcy baricade was activated. The fire surpreson system put out the fire.
The faragaut opened fire on the enemy warship. The phasers hit the prototype. The ship hit it with the photon torpedoes.
“This transporter trick is very agrivating. There had to be a shield frequency that will block it!”Addison said. “I am working on it but it will take time!” Sotril said. “I know. Do what you can commander!” Addison said. ” Aye sir!” She said.
The com unit was transfered to another station. They informed the fleet that they had engaged the enemy. The tanker atempted to elude the protype.right now the Klingon dreadnaught was more interested in the faragaut then the tanker. It was not clear how long that wil last.
“Captain! The faragut is engaging the Klingon prototype! They are requesting asistence!”uhua said. ” Send coordinates to mr. Dasalle. Lay in the course as soon as you have it mr. Sulu!”kirk ordered.
The com sent it to the navigator.dasalle laid in the course. Sulu then activated the course. “On course sir!” Sulu reported. The enterprise went to warp heading for the battle.
Kirk once served on the feragut. During one mission several crew members were killed by a creture including the captain. That incident had haunted kirk. After all his time it stil did.
“Who commands the faragut these days?” Captain kirk asked. Spock looked at the screen. Spock checked. Spock found the name disconcerting. He hasitated to answer but finally did.
“Captain Addison mccomic. “Spock said. ” I asked her out twice. She is the only female in the universe to turn down with me!” Kirk said. “I got to meat her. “Mccoy said.
The Klingon prototype hit the faragut. The faragut fired back on the warship. The ship was hit. ” We have another beam. Atempting to increase the shields in there area!”sotril said. The shields prevented the mine emurging in the area. The mine was returned to the sender. The mine was not going to hit this time.
Captain mccomic knew that they would not be able to dodge the bulet every time. They were stil vanerable to this weapon. Until they found a perminent solution they were vanerable.
The enterprise went at warp towards the batle zone. The enterprise fired on the Klingon vesel.
“Captain the faragut reports that the prototype is using a transporter to use mines! ” uhua anounced.
The Klingon warship tried to transport a mine on to the bridge. This was similar to what the dreadnaught did to the faragut.
The mine tried to adapt to the bridge’s shields. The mine detonated inside the beam. The explosion hit uhua. She fell to the ground. She was knocked unconscious but servived.
Mccoy went over and quickly treated her. ” The power needed to be able to transport though shields. I am right to think they probably only have one of these. “Kirk asked.
“It cannot be proven but is a resionable hypothosis!”spock said. “Spock can you locate the transporter room?” Kirk asked. “Perhaps but it will take some time but i will do my best!”spock said.
The vulcan was determined to locate that area. He knew he did not have a lot of time. The two ships hit the ship while spock tried to find the transporter.
The Klingon ship lunched another mine,this time near the deflector dish. It did not do exstensive damage but it did enough. The strategy was to ware the enterprise down.
Spock scaned the power usage of the dread naught. He believed he knew the general vacinity of the transporter.
“I believe i have located the general area of the transporter. The hizenburg principle does not alow a precise location but i believe this is close enough!” Spock said.
“Send it to mr. Sulu. Sulu you know what to do.”kirk said. “Aye sir!” Sulu said. Sulu receved the coordinances. The enterprise fired a volley of phasers near the area. The faragut folowed suit and fired phasers as well.
The transporter went off line. “The super transporter is off line my lord!” The science officer anounced. “Dawn it!” Kedair said. So angery kedair schot the science officer just for giving bad news.
Kedair had to rethink his strategy. The mission depended on the transporter weapon. This was not over. They had done damage. There was more damage to do.
The Klingon dreadnaught emited a storm cloud. The vessel withdrew. The vesel was regrouping. It would continue its mission soon enough. It stil intended to destabilize the federation and then conqur it. The two captains had been able to slow down there plans. They were delayed. That was all. The Klingon empire would be victorious in the end. That was all that matered. At least to kedair.
“The Klingon vesel is gone!”spock said. “They created a diversion!” Dassale said. ” The loss of the transporter weapon took away there advantage. I suspect they will be back! “Kirk said.
“I won’t be sad if they don’t!” Mccoy said. ” I know the feeling!”kirk said. Kirk went over to the com pannel on his chair. He presed the com pannel. “Scoty did you servive?” Kirk said.”aye it would take more then Klingon beasties to take me out. Are ye concerned simply for me or my ability to pull rabits out of my hat!” Scoty said. “No coment! Begin damage control proticles!” Kirk said. ” You got it !” He said.
“I thought i was the one that pulled rabits out of a hat?” Kirk said. “I think there is room for more then one mericle worker jim!” Mccoy said. Kirk laughed.
Mccoy treated uhua. Chepel arived with an anti grav gurney. She was placed on the gurney and transfered to sick bay. “We are going to need a replacement com officer. Get lt. Palmer up hear!” Kirk ordered. “Aye sir!” Spock said.
“I am going to go over to the faragut. Acess the damage personaly. I think they are in worse shape then we are. “Kirk said.
“Permission to remain obored!”spock said. “I thought you would want to go over. “Kirk said. “For personal reason i would rather stay hear. “Spock said. “Alright ! Very well. Your not going to talk about it are you?” Kirk asked. “No i do not think i am. “Spock said. “Alright !”kirk said.
“Captain kirk is coming over” sotril said. “You know he asked me out a couple of times. I said no every time!” Addison said.
” I was hoping commander spock would come over. Apearently he is buisy. “Sotril said. ” I am sure he has his reasons!” She said.
“I detect an unusual amount of tension when mr. Spock is mentioned. “Sotril said. ” You do!” She said. That was the end of the conversation.
Near Klingon federation border
The fleet alied with kazerek headed towards the federation border. The ships planed an attack. They knew that the organiens might intervein as they did before. They did not care. They would cower to no one. They were Klingons.
“We have a fleet heading our way. It is led by the sompek!” The science officer anounced. “Kezerek! Order that fleet to withdraw at once!” Captain kirtok ordered. “Sending !” The com officer reported.
The fleet led by kezerek kept going towards the border contingent.
“They are ignoring your order my lord! They are stil heading for the nutral zone!” The com officer said. The commander slamed his fist on the arm of the chair. “Ship to ship!” Kirtok demanded. “Your on !” The com tech said.
“Kezerek you are ordered to turn around now. This is a direct order from the chancellor ! ” kirtok said.
“I serve no one but kahless! ” kazerek reaplied. The fleet kept on going. “They are not withdrawing !” The science officer said. “Dawn you admiral. Kahless speak though his chancellor. Folow his orders or you will be fired on!” Kirok said.
The Klingon ships kept on going. The Klingon border fleet held there ground. The Klingon commander of the border fleet did not want to open fire but he would if he had to.
The Klingon ships loyal to kizerek kept coming. Kirtok knew his duty. He knew what he had to do. Kirtok reluctantly gave the order to fire. The ships fired on kizerek and his fleet.
The battle had begun. A cival war was upon them. A war on two fronts. Kizerek hoped that if he presed the isue,they would side with him. They did not. To kizerek,anyone who oposed him was an enimy. Whatever race even if you were a felow Klingon,if you oposed him,you were an enimy.
The battle was going on. Like it or not,it was on. It would determine the future.
End of part four
“Captain’s log the enterprise crew has all returned to the ship.mr. sullu has caused the ship to leave orbit. We are on course for the federation border with the Klingon empire. ”
“Tensions are high as the entire federation in on edge waiting on the orther shoe to drop. ”
“Captain the Klingon buildup along the border has gone unchanged for the most part. “Spock said. “Don’t the Klingon increase there border presence before a major strike?”dr. Mccoy asked. “That is true doctor. The fact that that is not occuring is sugnificant. I just do not know how!”Spock said.
“Are you saying your flumixed?”mccoy asked.”i believe i have basically admited that. I don’t know why your trying to use this situation as a point of ridicule!” Spock commented. “Sory!” Mccoy said.
“Incoming message ! It is on a general frequency. It is from the Klingon empire. “Lt. Uhua said. “On screen !” Kirk said.
An image apeared on the main view screen.
“This is general kervad speaking for the high command. The attack on vega was not sactioned by the hierarchy. This incident is under full review! End of message !” The screen faided.
“He just absolutely nothing in a short amount of time!” Mccoy said.
“I believe he may be teling the truth! This could indeed be an unsactioned action. “Spock said. “They are afraid of retaliation ! “Sulu said.
“The Klingons preceve us every bit the wariors we are. They create there enimies in there image! The Klingon do desire to conqur us. Only when they are absolutely sure they have a chance of wining! “Spock said.
The Klingon commander of this sector called a meating of the senior offifers in the sector. They all came to the brefing room.
“The actions of admiral kedair may be in violation of the direct orders from the chancelor but the chancelor is mising a golden opotunity. One we should not dismiss out of spite. This is who we are.” Captain kizerek said.
“One does not disobey the orders of the surpreme commander of the klingon empire. The representive of kahless himself. We must not lose sight of our duty!” Kor said.
“If the chancellor no longer governs in the best interest of the empire,it is our duty to act as wariors. “Kizerek said.
“You sound like a romulon not a Klingon warior. We do not go behind the back of dully installed leaders. “Koloth said.
“We are at war! We must fight this war! We must embrace our destiny! “The commander kizerek said.
“You do this! You will be enemies of the empire and its chancellor. You will be my enemy. “Kor said.
“You can’t really be siding with a fool like chancellor breldendt. The man is a coward. He has no hournor. “Kizerek said.
“I am siding with the code of klingon hornor! I will not abandon that. “Kor said. Kor got up and several commanders got up with them.
“We are letting them go?” Xorix asked. “They are not worth challenging but i suspect we will get our chance in battle!” Kezerek declared.
“Order the tanker to stay as close to us as they can. “Addison ordered. “Sending !” The com officer said. “Stand by phasers and photon torpedoes!” She ordered. Halak and the navigator agreed.
“Unlike the romulons,Klingon do not have cloaking technology ! Whoever they are experimenting with it. They may be trying to create a ‘poor man’s “cloak!” Sotril said. “It is so weird when you use our idioms!” Dr. Abbygail danner said.
“Can you give me a rough estimate of where they will be?”she asked. “Yes i can! Sending coordinates to the navigator!” Sotril said.
“I got it!” The nevigator said. ” Set course. Advise the tanker to stay close.”she said. “Aye sir!” The com and navagator said.
The ship headed to the area where they believed that the Klingon dreadnaught was.
“They have found us!” The guner said. “I believe they suspect they have found us! Humans love to make supisistions!” The first officer said.
“All stop!”kedair ordered. The helm stoped the ship. “We are at all stop excellentcy!” The pilot said. “Stand by all weapons !”the commander ordered. “Weapons on stand by my lord!” The guner said.
“Is this commander a warior? We are about to find out?” Kedair said.
“The signal is in one place !”sotril said. “They are playing dead!” Aby said. “Most likely ! Klingon love victory ! There is a story that after faling to capture a tholien strong hold,they conqured a low tech planet no one cared about because they could. They wanted a victory ! We may be able to use this to our advantage !”Addison said.
“Witch of us is more at risk? The tanker or us!”abby asked. “The answer to that is yes.” Addy said. “Oh!”aby said.
“Make it look like we are turning around. “Addison ordered. “Your atempting to bait them?” Sotril commented. “I don’t want to draw this out longer then necessary ! “She said.
“Vessel is moving away. They are heading in the oposite direction!”the guner reported. “He is smart! He is tired of wating. Impatient. Why delay this any more! Intercept!”kedair ordered.
“The hostle is now visible. It is the prototype. ” Sotril ordered. “Have weapons on stand by!” Addy ordered. “Standing by!”the orion replied. The klingon vessel opened fire. ” shields holding!” Sotril reported.
The faragaut fired a volley of photon torpedoes as well as a berage of phasers. The weapons struck the Klingon ship.
“Prepare our surprise!” Kedair ordered. The gunner acknowledged thr order.
“I am detecting a transporter beam from the hostile !” Sotril said. “They can transport even when there shields are up?”yeoman smith asked. “At least this one can!” The captain said. “Sir the transporter beam. They are trying to beam into the bridge!”sotril said. ” every one down!” The captain ordered. A smal mine exploded.
End of part three
“Captains log the enterprise has met up with the uss lexington. I have authorised a limited shore leave on a near by planet. I have also challenged the Lexington commander to a friendly game of softball.” Captain kirk said.
On the planet was two teams all comprised of senior officers from the enterprise and the Lexington. The enterprise crew was up to bat.
It was spock who was up to bat. Spock remained his stoic self. Spock seamed at ease well for a vulcan. He studied his seroundings and his oponent.
The pitcher threw the ball. Spock studied everything. Spock was ready. Spock struck the ball with all his might. Then he hit the ball. The ball was a home run. Spock darted for the home plate. Then kirk’s comunicator went off. Kirk stoped the game. Commadore Wesley went off as well.
“Kirk hear! “He said. “Captain you have an incoming message from admiral komack prority one. “Lt. Commander gioto in command said.
“Patch it though hear!” Kirk ordered. Gioto ordered lt. Palmer the relief com officer to transfer the message to his comunicator.
“Jim!” The admiral said. “Go ahead sir!” Kirk said. ” Jim we have a prority one situation. Thw vega colony came under attack by what we believe is a prototype Klingon dreadnaught. The attack was repelled but they did a great deal of damage. The federation is on high alert!” The admiral said.
“Vega is prety far in the federation fronteer!” Kirk said.”that is our concern as well. There has not been an oficial response from the Klingons. We want all of our heavy crusher to procede to the border!” Komack said.
“Of course admiral. We will leave at once! Do you believe that this is a prelude to a larger attack ? ” kirk asked. “We think there is a good chance of it. We canot take that chance. ” The admiral said.
” i agree sir.”kirk said. “We will keep in touch! Star fleet out!” Komack said. Kirk deactivated the comunicator. He placed it in his pocket. “Commander gioto! Stand by to get underway. We are going to be heading to the Klingon boder!”kirk said.
“You got it captain!” Gioto said. “We will begin beaming up shortly!” Kirk said. Commadore Wesley began to also mobilize his crew as well.
“Plot the course. Engage when every one is back!” Commander gioto ordered. ” Course set!” Lt.dasalle acknowledged.
The crew that were on the surface began to return to the enterprise and Lexington. Soon the crew was back abored. The two ships were off.
“We have confirmed that it is the dreadnaught !” Admiral lekair said. ” Dawn that kadair. He had no authority to do this. He defied a direct order from his chancellor. He is without hournor! I want that ship retreved! I want that commander brought to the council chamber in chains! That man is an enemy of kaihless. ” The chancellor said.
“Sir! The federation will not take kindly to these attacks! Although the actions of kadair are treasonous. It does provide an opportunity !” Admiral trozik said.
“We will not advance our aganda playing on the actions of a trator. Our priority is the capture of the trator. I want him alive. He must be spared an hornerable death. I want him to live out hus days on aurora pente. I want him to die an old man forgoten and dimoralized with no chance of redeption. Is that clear?” The chancellor said.
The admirals,generals,councillors and orther staf knew that they had better not challenge his decision. No one did.
The constitution class vessel was taking on suplies from tankers. The captain had her hair pulled up. She was a prominent women In star fleet.
“Captain i believe that we may be being trailed. I am detecting an energy signal coming in and out. “The science officer reported.
“They are trying not to be seen. Manny technicians might ignore it but not i!” The science officer reported. The captain laughed.
“Alright ! I don’t want the tanker getting caught up in an ambush. I am sure that the raider would love to hit a constitution class starship but i am sure they will settle for destroying a tanker!” The comanding officer said.
“When we leave. They will be a siting duck!” Orion helmsman lt.halak comented. “We are near vega. It is possible that the dreadnaught came hear!” The vulcan science officer said.
“we may have just found the ship. “Yeoman smith said. “We may have. We have to be careful. We cannot lose um. “The captain said.
The captain began to think out a strategy. She was ready to act. She wanted to act.
End of part two
The door opened,the team excited the turbo lift. They emtered a docking bay. They went to a sky box.
“Asembled guest! The future of the Klingon fleet. A prototype for a dreadnaught. It is a super star ship. The ship has 24 photon torpedoes tube as well as disruptor and plasma canions. The ship has another adventage. This is a closely gaurded secret!” Admiral k’dair said.
“Please procede admiral!” The chancellor asked. “This ship can transport itself . It can only go a smal distence. Think of it we can go in and out during crucial moments. This ship could also be used in gurila warfare as well!” K’dair said
“Do we know if it works !”admiral chozar asked. “It has passed every test! This ship is our most promising new weapon. This could gurente klingon domination!” K’dair said.
“One should never totally rely on a peace of equipment admiral!” The chancellor said. “I agree excellentcy. Battle require guile,cuning,fore thought,adapbility. With the right wariar in command the scales could be tiped in our favor!”k’dair said.
“Your division is notorious for making grandiose claims yet never delivers. “Brigader tornin commented.
“I have delivered. This ship is ready excellentcy. “K’dair said.”i want to keep it as a fall back. “The chancellor said. “This ship should be a flagship !” K’dair said.”Lets not get a head of ourselves ! I want more test beore i alow it to join the fleet. “The chancellor said.
” sir! I urge you to reconsider. This could alter the course of the empire for the next thirty years!”k’dair said.
“My decision stands. Do not challenge me on that admiral!” The chancellor admonished him.
“Very well excellentcy! The ship as well as this division are at your disposal !”k’dair declared.”very good! I am glad to hear that.
“The meating did not go well?” Second officer tivona asked. “The chancellor and his staf do not quite see the wisdom of our ship!”the admiral answered. “The chancellor was a marine. It makes sense that he is not impresed with the prototype. I would think that some in his staff would see the wisdom in such a vessel!” First officer deterok said.
“Look my loyalty is to the empire and the ideala given to us by kayhless. My loyalties do not necessarily reside with any particular chancellor. “The admiral remarked.
The two staf members were in agreement with the sentiment of there commanding officer. “You have our suport admiral!” The second in command said. “I knew i could count on you. We will bring glory to the empire! ” the admiral declared.
The chancellor did not remane long at the base. The chancellor was eager to return to the home world. The admiral was eager for him to leave orbit of the instiation.
“Qonos one has cleared tygercore air space “a tech said. “Understood! We have work to do!” The commander said. The crew got to work.
“Morings cleared!”a science officer reported. “Take us out! “The admiral ordered. The prototype left it birth. The vessel cleared the dock. “We are in open space my lord!”the helm officer reported.
The admiral began to sing a popular Klingon war durge. “Jaja kaole jaja kaole!” The bridge crew louder. As he gave the order to move out. The singing got louder and more enthusiastic. Then the prototype went to warp. The ship was gone.
United federation of planets
“I am detecting an energy emision off the port bow!” A tech reported. “Can you determine what it is?” The station commander asked.
“Commander it is a transporter beam!”the tech anounced. The prototype came into view. “It is a warship!” A second tech anounced.
The battle ship fired on the base. The base fired a full volley of photon torpedoes. The torpedoes pumaled the station.
The station fired back on ship.the ship hit back on the station. The obital ships tried to defend the station. The prototype was able to imobolize most of the ships.
Nearby ships arived to repel the attacks. While the prototype knew that it could not defeat the fleet. It wanted to make a point.it was determined to do so. The ship hit the planet. It hit several targets all over the planet. Then the ship beamed away.
The vessel left the area. It left tons of damage in its wake. The crises has only begun.
“Captain’s log against my better judgement i am heading for a planet that may help cure the virus infecting a good chunk of the federation and even into the Klingon empire. ”
“This could all be for naught but i am hopeful that I
t is not. I hope that they are right. I don’t know. ”
“The virus continues to spread. The qarentine has been expanded. The federation is on high alert. “Piper said.
“I have detected tholien vessels. So far they have not taken any action !” Kyile reported.
“Don’t give them any reason to take any more notice !”Addison ordered.
The bridge crew was on edge. They tried to keep calm. They tried to do there job.
Irina went on her cofee break. She went to her qurters. “Irina!”severin said. “You are disipointed in me!”she asked . “I don’t understand it. You believed in our cause!”he said. “I still do. It has mushromed beyond its original perpose. It had become a cult,a gestalt,it was ment to be a new way of thinking. To challenge conventional thinking. Now it has become a convention in and of itself. I fear a mesianic image has been developed around you and i fear you have brought into it.”she said.
” You cannot live in two worlds. You know in your heart we are on the right path. Eden is out there. Someone has to have the courege to lead us there. When we cure the virus and i believe we will. They will have to admit we are right. “Severin said.
” I can’t join you. You have chosen a course i cannot follow . In star fleet i can be who i am. I can be the sceptic and the dreamer. I don’t have to sacrifice reason for idealism or vice versa. “She said.
” we will cure the virus. They will see our worth. Mayby we will a noble z and mangies prize. Mayby we will be granted sate hood satus within the federation. “Severin said.
“That will never happen ! Not with you as the leader. They will never trust you. I don’t think they can. I know i don’t. If tongo was the leader maybe but not you. “She said.
” At least i know where i stand and where you stand. I see i don’t know you anymorr. Perhaps i never did. You were a seaker but never a belever. You were convinced but not persaded. A convert but not a follower. You will miss out!”he said.
She thought to herself ,i only fear for those who won’t. She knew what was coming.
“We are in scanning range of the planet!” Sotril said. ” Comence scan. “Addison ordered.
“Begining scan!” Sotril reported. The tech began scanning the planet. “I am detecting substances that could have madicinal properties !” Sotril said. ” alright ! We will begin sending landing teams to the planet. They will take samples. ” Addison ordered.
“I hope this works. I don’t want to give severen any crebility but i do want want to find a cure or at least a treatment.”dr. Piper said. “As do we all doctor !” The captain said.
The team began to emurge on the planet. They started convulsing. Dr. Piper called for imidiate transport back up to the ship. The crew was back.
“The planet is toxic to humanoids!” Dr. Piper anonced.” Nothing showed up as toxic on the sensors!” Takigawa said. ” we will have to use e.v.a suits !” Sotril said. “Alright ! Lets get to it!”Addison ordered.
“Captain’s log we have been able to get a sample of the properties that may be the bases of a cure to the benet proser virus. We are coordinating with the united federation of planets center of dease control. We are hopeful that it will produce a cure!”
Addison was taking a nap in her qurters. The door chime rang. “Come in!” Addison asked. The door opened.
“We have a cure! “Dr. Piper asked. “Your sure it works. “She asked. “We tried it on the crew of the palmyra,they have no signs of the virus. They are going to try on it on those bad off. “Dr. Piper said.
“Is the crises over?” She asked . “For all intense and perposes yes. We dodged this phaser blast.” Dr. Piper said. “Good! “She said.
“They have decided to drop the charges of ignoring the qarentine order except for me. I have to serve six mouths in a rehab colony. My crew will not be charged but we will liqidate our ships. My lisence to operate a ship has been revoked!” Dr. Severen said.
“You spread the virus . You almost started a war. You got off easy!” Irina said. “I intend to one day resume my search for eden. I am certain it is out there. I intend to find it. ” He said.
“Captain’s log the enterprise is on its way back to the federations. The medical crises is over as well as the diplomatic crisis with the Klingon empire. Things for the most part has calm down!”
The ship went to warp.
