“So i would like to have your attention !”sotril in a dress uniform said. The room got silent. “Today we celbrate the promotion of captain addison mccomic to rank of admiral. Well i don’t but everyone else does!”sotril said.
Everyone laughed. “I would like to raise a toast to admiral mccomic !”she said. Everyone joined in even her young son who had a super surek sippy cup. “How does it feel to be the youngest admiral in star fleet?”liz asked. “I like the power. I like that jr officers fear me! I’m kiding. I have not let it go to my head too much!”she said.
“She makes me call her sir!”Ryan said. “No i don’t!”she said. Everyone laughed. “Don’t give your sucesor any idears!”tim mathews said. “We don’t have to wory about our new captain letting her position go to her head! “Yeoman smith said.
“Unless she reverts to an erlier form if vulcans!”dr. Piper said. “Great ! I had not considered that!”tim said.
“How does it feel to be the captain ?”lt. Palmer asked. “It is a job title,it does not define me. I am who i was before only with more responsibilities!”the vulcan exo said. Lt. Palmer was a bit taken a back by this answer. The crew had come to expect it from her.
Everyone was having a good time. Addison went over and picked up her son. “Can you say admiral mommy?”she asked. He said something very close. She put him back down and let him play.
Addison looked around the room. She was going to miss her crew. She liked the promise of the challenge of being an admiral. She got lost in thought.
She heard a comotion coming from outside the dining room. She heard phaser fire. No one was armed.
She had yeoman smith take her son and daughter into a closet. The door opened,Alison began to fire indiscriminately. She was about to go for Addison but ryian shielded her. She screamed.
Then Addison woke up. She had utered out load. “Addy its ok! You had a night mere!”ryian said.”again? I’m sory ry!”Addison said.”Let me gues ! It ends with everyone being slaughtered by. Alison !”Ryan said. “I don’t like that she is on bored. I will be very happy when we arive at elba and we will be rid of this pasinger!”Addison said.
She was waring a night gowan and was barefoot. She started to get out of bed. “Your going to go check on her arnt you?”Ryan asked. “I have to ! I won’t be able to get back to sleep if i don’t ry!”she said. “I know! You remember what 20th century psychologest roy masters said about checking the door to see if it was locked after you kept checking?”he asked. “I know! It is embracing my evil. Roy masters did not have an unknowns factor on a masive heavy crusher!” She said.
“I am going to go back to sleep! Wake me up if you need me!”he said. “Ok ry !”she said. She put on a robe and excited the qurters. The door closed.
She walked to the brig. She entered. She saw two gourds outside the holding cell. The cell had a force field. A tech sat at a monitor post. She looked inside. Alison was sleaping.
“Any trouble ?”she asked. “No mam! She was up when we came on. She soon fell asleep. “Lemli said.
“You two were briefed on her?”Addison asked. “Yes mam! Ve know vhat we are up against !”a security officer with a rusan acident said.
” Your phasers are ready?”she asked. “We know what we need to do! We know who this is!” Lemli said. “Do you doubt our abilities ?” The rusan jr officer asked.
“No i don’t. I am just concerned. She has been involved in two major incidents that thretened the stability of the federation. You canot be too careful!” She said.
“We apreciate the gravity of the situation captain!”lemli said. “Ok i won’t brother you any more!”Addison said. “Its fine mam!”the rusan said.
“Cary on! I won’t disturb you further!”Addison said. They noded. She took one last look at Alison before she left. Then she excited the brig. The door closed.
She could not sleep yet. She knew that she was not going to be able to fall asleep yet. She decided to give Elizabeth danner a visit.
Elizabeth danner was not doing well herself. She kept having a recurring dream of her own. One that,like the captain, could not shake.
In her dream,she enters the bridge with doctor mark piper. There is another man she fails to recognize. He was of scotish ansestry. There was also an asain. She did not recognize him either.
“This is dr. Elizabeth daner! She came abored from the eldeberen colony!”piper said.
It always ended the same way. The enterprise struck by an energy barier. She herself was struck. Then she awoke.
The chime rang just as she awoke. She was pretty sure she knew who it was. She got out of bed. “Come in!”danner said.
The door opened,sure enough it was captain Addison mccomic. “You had the night mere again!”liz said. “I can’t wait til we get to alba. I want to not have to think about her for a while! “Addison said.
“You really think she is a threat?”danner asked. “I don’t know. I think she is, if left to her own devices. Under lock and key i don’t know. I have a bad feeling i just can’t shake. Am i nuts liz? ?”Addison asked.
“Yes you are. I am not sure about this. She is definitely an unknown qantity. Your justified in being concerned. “Elizabeth said.
“She scares me liz. I don’t know why but she does. “Addison said.”i can see why!”Elizabeth said.
Dr. Mark piper was unable to sleep . He went to his office in sickbay. He looked over his scans of Alison crenic. He found something. He looked it over. He may have just made a breakthrough.
End of part one
“Captain’s log,the task force successfuly shut down methusilah and imobilized most of kahn’s forces. Kahn is atempting to evade us. We are doing all we can to catch up with them. ”
“They have gone passed maximum warp!”daystrom said.”how is that possible ? Oh yea methusilah. No ofense doc but your invention is really started to iretate me!”gioto said.
“I assume the command ship is using your prototype. Then the two others are using mini divises he built. “Addison said.”a sound hypothosis!”sotril said.
“They are holding at warp 9.2,i doubt they can go any faster. “Kyile said. “Lets hope not! “Addison said.
The enterprise and three orther ships headed for the three rougue ships.
“Bridge to engineering !”Addison said. “Addy i can’t push the warp engine beyond maximum warp. “Pitcarn said.”i thought you were a mericle worker!”she said. “Within reason!”pitcarin said.
“We can’t jam the warp drive?” Smith asked. “Not from this distence!” Kyile said. “I am not leting kahn or Alison get away. Not this time! “Addison said.
” What if we beamed a photon torpedo designed to hit methiselah! We could force the ship out of warp! “Gioto said. “You can’t predict where the torpedo will materialize or the precise location of the constilation. It is a schot in the dark!” Kyile said.
“Is there any chance of this working ?”Addison said. “Its fairly slim but there is a chance!”gioto said. ” Sotril your usually the vioce of reason,what sayeth you?”Addison asked.
“It does have a chance of success. It is a slim chance. I believe it could work!”sotril said.
“Gioto,kyile get on it !”Addison ordered. The two agreed. They left the bridge entered the turbo lift. The turbo lift door closed.
Kyle,gioto and a security and engineering team prepared a photon torpedo. “Takigawa do you have a lock on the torpedo ?”gioto asked. “Got it commander!”the chief said. “Enerzize! Hear goes nothing !”the security chief said. The transporter activated the transpoter beam. The torpedo was beamed away.
The torpedo was beamed from a long distence. The torpedo emerged near the constilation. The torpedo detonated.
The torpedo struck the constilation. The wake hit the constitution class vesel. The vessel was forced to reduce speed.
“The constilation is at warp 8.2!”sotril reported. “Mutch better! Match course and speed !”the captain ordered. Irina and dassale ploted the course.
The enterprise and the task force caught up to the ship. The enterprise fired as soon as it was in wepons range.
The enterprise lunched a photon torpedo right at the area where methiselah was. The device was weekond. The enterprise unleashed a volley of phasers at the area.
“Methisulah is off line!”joiquin said. “No!!!”khan said. The rougue ships hit back on the starfleet ships. Several decks were hit.
“We need to deplete there shields !”Addison said. Addison got up from the command chair. “Sotril take over!”Addison said. “Addy! What are you doing ?”liz said. “I will explain later!”Addison said. “Oh gosh!”liz said. Addison left the bridge.
Addison ran to an airlock. She put on an e.v.a suit. She took some spacial charges and other devices. She went to the airlock. “Now we end this !”Addison said. She closed the airlock. She depreserized the air lock. Then she opened the door. She headed out.
She activated the thusters. She neared the constilation. She found an airlock. She was able to pry open the door. She ganed acess to the ship and went inside.
She had the phaser rifle ready. She moved out. She ran to the a shield generator. She fired first at an augment. She stunes him. She acted in a stelth mannor.
She found a wall near the shield grid. “Mat is going to kill me!”she said. She took out a charge. She set it up. She got out of the way. She then presed the detonate button. The charge exploded and spread.
“Our shields are down! “McPherson reported. ” We have been borded!”joiquin anonced.” Addison ! Abandon ship! We will regroup. This is not over! We have started over before and we will again! “Khan declared. ” Where are you going?”joiquin asked. “To settle an old score!”khan said. He left the bridge. The turbo lift closed.
The crew began to evacuate. The loyal task force began to send bording party.
Addison moved around. She wanted to find Alison. She walked into a coridor.she saw kahn. “We meat again! “He said.”you have a second chance, you ruined it! You could have contributed in a positive way. “She said.
“I am a conquer. I canot do anything . Could Alexander farm,could napoleon be a Sheppard? Could colnel green be an engineering. War is my blood,my veins ! Struggle defines me!”he said.
“It enslaves you! You could have been so much more!” Addison said. “I have chosen my path! It is my road. ” He said.
He raised his phaser. She raised hers. He threw his phaser down the room. She thews her. They ran towards each orther. He tried to tackle her. She pushed him away.
“I am not a little girl! I can hold my own!”she said. They roled around on the floor of the coridor. She deflected a punch from kahn. She struck kahn.
Suddenly gioto and a security team neared kahn and Addison. “Parting is sutch sweet sorrow. You are granted a repreve ! It won’t last long. We will meat again ! “Kahn asured her.
“Stand down kahn!”gioto said “not today!”he said. He grabed Addison. “Back off!”khan said. Addison told him to do it. He led her to an area near an esape pod. “Until next time!”he said. He shoved her across the room. He then ran into the pod.
Gioto and his team ran to her. “You ok?”he asked. “I’m fine! Continue to sicure the ship! “She ordered. “Where are you going ?”giito asked. “Unfinished business !”she said.
Alison headed for one of the pods. “Stop right there!”Addison said. “I figured you would be showing up!”Alison said. “Like your look. Much better then the old!’Addison said. “It changes nothing addy!”she said. “Aly cat it did not have to be this way!”Addison said.
“I won’t let you get away. Your too dangerous! Unpredictable ! Irational! “She said. She headed for the pod.
Addison tackled her. The two wrestled. Alison struck Addison. Addison fought back. Alison was stuned. Addison turned and saw Ryan. “You could have a little sooner !”she said. They huged.
“Captain’s log,the crew of the ships seized by kahn have been located. This includes the starship commanders including commadore decker. While with a few aceptions most of kahns people esaped but a few have been captured including zoey one of his inner circle. ”
“For now the crises is over. Kahn and his people have lost the ships they seized. The prototype of methuselah has been destroyed. The mini devices have terned over to doctor daystrom. Things hopfuly will be getting back to normal !”
“Sory about the damage mat!”addy said. “Could not be prevented. I am just glad to have my ship back. We are going to be putting in for repairs at star base 11. I hope to have the constilation space bound as soon as posible. “Decker said. “I’m sure you will!”Addison said.
“I am ending the methiselah project at least for now. I never consider that it could be weponized. I never thought to include anti theft protical. I don’t want to deal with it. At least for now!”daystrom said. “Understandible!”Addison said. “So what wil enterprise do now?”Wesley asked. “We are going to transport mis crenic back to elba. Then not sure. Space is the limit i gues!”Addison said. “Yes it seams it is!”decker said.
“All decks stand ready!”yeoman smith said. “Very good! You have the course laid in irina!” Addison asked. “I do indeed!”irina said. “Engage dassale!”she said. “On course!”he said. The ship was off.
“Audry,send the specs for the irina,kyile fire wall to the federation ships we know are stil loyal to the fleet. Then have them head for kaleb sector. We will stage at kaleb four. “Addison said.
“Sending now captain !”lt. Palmer said. “Set course for kaleb four dassale!” Addison ordered. “You got it!” Dasale said. He layed in the course. The ship was off.
“I like this idea! I like your plan.i am inclined to go along with your plan. I would like a favor!”the andorian ilsik said.
“Alright , what is it?” Kahn asked.”i want to govern andoria. I want to be given control of andoria under you of course. “Ilsik said.”i think we can work something out. You would be an excellent vice roy,emparor of andoria!”kahn said. He smiled.
After a prolonged conversation the x inmates signed on to his plan. They pledged loyalty to kahn. Then the meating was ajurned. Every one got up from the desk. They began to disperse.
Alison went over to kahn. “I had time to observe ilsik. Don’t turn your back on him for a second !” Alison said. “I agree. I had that feeling myself. I will do just that!”he informed her. She nodded.
“Several ships are on there way to the randevez point including the Lexington !”lt. Palmer said.
“The Lexington ! Commadore Wesley’s ship! “Addison said. “Is there a problem ?”liz asked. “No i gues i should have expected it. “Addison said.
“It is a good thing is it not? We should have the best against kahn!”yeoman smith said. “Yes your right!” Addison reaplied. Addison tried to contain her aprehension but she did feel that way. Many picked up on it. Some did not.
Alison underwent reconstructive sergery using a methoud developed by a scientist using eugenics. She wanted her apearence restored. She had been very atractive by human standerds. That was before her acident. Now she would have it back.
“Did it work?”Alison asked as she woke up. A nurse got a mirror. She looked at it. She started to cry. It was her. The her she remembered. She was very pleased.
The door opened,jouquin entered. He was taken aback by her new apearence. He could never get pass the plasma scars. He believed in the neq order,there should be no imperfections. He was glad she decided to go though the alterations. “Mis crenic! Kahn wishes you to join him for diner!”he said. “I would love to!” She said. “Excellent i will let him know!”jouquin said.
“Captain’s log,the ships not efected by the device designed to take over any ship,are ariving at the randavez site. I am sheduling a meating of the starship commanders to discus the mission specifics. I have requested a private meating with the commander of the Lexington. The other commanders have the rank of captain but bob Wesley is a commadore and outranks me. I will have to tread lightly but be determined!”
“Hello bob. Cookies they are chocolate chip?”Addison asked. He took one. “This is delicious !”he said. “I baked them myself !”she said.
“I see. You are a bit of a conundrum Addison ! “Wesley said.”moi?”she asked. He laughed. “You were captain of phaser rifle team at the academy. You played on pherise square scraid. You have a bit of a tom boy persona yet you seam to be girlie as well. You ware dress uniform not pants. Your rumored to have a tedy bear colection as well!” Wesley said.
Addison laughed. “I am dynamic !”she said. “So what is the nature of this chat?”Wesley asked. “Well! Bob it was the enterprise that sucesfully stoped kahn’s initial gambit. The enterprise imobolized the clark’s sumit! The enterprise crew came up with the fire wall. The enterprise should head up the task force. I should command the task force!”she said.
“Your trying to butter me up. “Bob said. “Bob the isues are too big for a turf war within the fleet. I should command. “Addison said. “Is this personal. Against kahn! Against Alison ?”Wesley said. “Have you ever known me not to be professional bob?”she asked. “No i have not. “Wesley said. “I know how to beat kahn! I understand how he thinks. I know his weakness. Kahn has to be stopped. We are running out of time!” Addison said.
Commadore Wesley said. “I am not used to playing second fidle.your right. You should command the task force. I will defer to you.”he said.
“Thank you. This is important to me. I have to do this!”she said.”i believe you will suceed!”Wesley said.
She got dresed waring a ball gowan. She was escorted to kahn’s qurters. “You look very beutiful!”kahn said. “Thank you khan!”she said. He invited her to sit.
“So when earth is conquered,where will your capital be?” She asked. “I have not decided. I have given it a lot of thought. I am partial to new dehli or Punjab but sanfrancisco or paris are the most logical !”he said.”you could have operationl capital in paris and sanfrancisco. New dehli could be a cerimonial capital. ” Khan said.
“I like it. I must confes i don’t know about this transporter thing.McPherson asures me its safe. I stil don’t know!”he said. “I asure you,you have nothing to wory about! ” Alison said.
“We are going to create a better world a better universe. “Khan said. “I believe your the man to do it! “She said.
“I believe that the forces of conformity will soon trying to challenge us. I am ready to meat that challenge !”khan said. ” As am i ! “She said.
“I know you are!”he said. “I preceve that captain mccomic and you have a history .”he said.”you are quite perceptive kahn. She was my best friend. She sacrificed me to save her own skin. While i sufered in agony,she became a starship captain. She got maried had kids. All the things i wanted to do. She never wanted a family. Hear she is she has it all and i have nothing ! I have not forgiven her for that. Perhaps i should !”she said.
“The scales will be weighed. For opress us will answer for there deads. Have you read plato’s republic?”he asked . “No but i am familar with its content. I asumed that you want to set up a society run by the elete. “Alison said.
“I was made to rule. First by breading then by traning. I believe that it is my destiny. What do you see as your destiny Alison ?”he asked.
“I don’t think that i have one. Before the acident,i wanted to go on advantures,see the universe,meat interesting people,now i don’t know. Beyond revenge on Addison ,i am not sure i have any goals. “Alison said.
“You have so much potential Alison. If i am to be a prince once again,you should bea princes!” Kahn said. “I have not felt that way in a long time. “Alison said. “It is time for that to change. “Kahn said.
“You believe you can bring down the federation. You believe that you can impose your kind of order on the galaxy ?” She asked. “It won’t be easy. Maintaning it may be harder then conqering I welcome the struggle. I love a challenge !” He said. “You are a remarkable man!”she said. “You are remarkable as well!” He said.she was not so sure.
“All ships are standing by at your command!” Lt. Palmer reported. “Order all ships to leave orbit! “Addison ordered. The com officer sent the order. The ships in the vanguard left orbit of the planet. “All vesel have left orbit ! ” sotril reported.”have you located the ships circumvented by kahn?”Addison asked. “I have. I have sent the coordinates to lt. Palmer and mr. Dassale. “Sotril said. Both palmer and dasale anounced that they had the coordinates. On Addison’s orders,the coordinents were sent to the rest of the fleet. Then dasale set course. The fleet headed for the rougue fleet.
“Excellentcy! A star fleet task force is heading straght for us!”jouquin reported. ” plot an intercept course for them. I look foward to this engagement!”kahn declared. The two fleets headed towards eachorther.
“The rougue fleet is heading right for us.”sotril reported. ” they know that we are coming. “liz said. “Good! We won’t go qietly. We won’t just give up! “Addison said.
The fleet finally neared eachorther. The ships loyal to kahn fired first. Addison gave the clearence to return fire.
Kahn was thriled. Sence he woke up from cyro sleep ,he earned to conquer once again. He needed a perpose again. Now he had it. He hada struggle ,a cause. He could not be hapier.
The enterprise was hit by the uss constilation. The shields held together. The enterprise returned fire on the constilation. Then uss ajax a frigate conductes a dive bomb raid on the enterprise.
The enterprise was unable to return fire on the ajax. It was too munerable. The ship was too good.
“Addison ! Many of the ships are runing on a skeliton crew or unmaned!”kyle reported. “They must be linked to the constilation!” Marvic said. “Methuselah! They must be using methiselah!” Daystrom commented. “Can you find a way to jam the link?” Addison asked. “Working on it!”gioto said.
The battle so far was a stalemate.neither side had gained any ground. Both sides were holding there own.
Those not esential to the battle worked on finding a way to jam the signal. Gioto was a security expert. He was also a weapons expert. He knew security system. Kyile was an expert on engines,transporters and helm. He looked at this from the stand point of an engineering stand point. Dr. Daystrom and marvic looked at it from a technical stand point.
So far the ajak was a formidable advasary. It had made life for the star fleet very uncomfortable. The vessel did not have a crew. It ran totally on autimation.
The crew believed they had found a way to jam the methuselah. They sent it. Suddenly the ships with automated crew stoped being conbative. Ships with a small contigent strugaled to keep going.
“The jaming davice is holding!” Sotril reported. “Mantain fire!”Addison ordered. The enterprise fired on uss exciter. The exciter fired back.
The star fleet had no idea of what ships were automated or manned. The battle was stil in full swing.
“Get the fleet back!”khan incisted. “I am trying ‘”joiquin said. “Try harder dawn you!”khan declared.
The uss pokahuntas had a skelitan crew. The uss lexington was able to take out there shields. The pokahuntas started to retreat.
“The pokahuntas is in retreat!” McPherson said. “How dare they! Target the pokahuntas! Fire!”kahn said. The bridge crew was horified. They followed the order. The ship exploded.
“Kahn meens business !”liz said. “Indeed he does!” Addison said. The enterprise was hit. It was the exciter. The enterprise fired back.
The uss richmond,a ship under the command of a khan aly was nutrilized. The ship lost its shields and weapons. The ship tried to colide with the uss triconderago. The ship was destroyed by uss Belgrade.
Khan’s fleet was faling apart. Some were destroyed. Some ships surendered. “Only three vessels remain active !”McPherson said. “I will not give up! We will withdrawl. Atempt to regroup!” Kahn said.
“They are atempting to withdrawl!”sotril said. “Oh no you don’t. Your not leaving without our ships and crew! This ends now. Persue those ships. “Addison ordered.
End of part six
“Now entering elba system !”irina reported. “I have found the clarks sumit!” Mathews at science anounced. “Plot an intercept irina!”sotril ordered.
Irina set the intercept course. Then lt. Dassale activated the engines. “We are heading right for them captain!”dasale reported.
“I am detecting the use of methuselah!”dr. Daystrom said.”i figured he would. He may be archaic but never obsilete!”dr. Danner said. “Indeed!”sotril responded. “The computer is set to constently scan for trouble. I am monitoring personaly as well!”kyile said.
“Shields up! Stand by weapons !”sotril ordered. “Weapons ready! “Dasale said. The enterprise went at high warp heading for the clarks sumit.
“The enterprise has set course straght for us!” Zoey anounced. “Excellent! I have been looking forward to this for a long time! Head for that ship! It is now time for battle!”Khan declared. The two ship headed towards eachorther.
“I believe i can filter out homo superiors from normal humans. I have located normal humans!”Mathews reported.
“Now in weapons range!”McPherson reported. “Open fire!”khan ordered. The clarks sumit fired multiple phasers blast on the enterprise. Multiple sections of the enterprise.
“Damage reports coming in on all decks! ” palmer reported. “Return fire! “Sotril ordered. The enterprise fired on the vessel.
“Target the area near the brig. Lets complicate things for mr. Kahn!”sotril ordered. The enterprise fired on the brig. The brig was hit. The force field was deactivated.
“I think that that is our sign !”the doctor declared. “I definitely agree !”Hadley said. The two ran out of the cell.
One of kahn’s folowers arived.he brandished a weapon. Hadley went for the man. The doctor slamed into the man. He was knocked unconscious.
“I thought you were a doctor not a camando !”Hadley commented. “Survival instinct mr. Hadley !” The doctor said.
As soon as Hadley saw hostiles,he fired. He stuned two hostiles.the two kept moving.
“I can’t acess there system ! “Joiquin anounced. “They must have designed some kind of firw wall!”McPherson said. “Very smart of them! They wil stil lose!”kahn proclaimed.
“They are atempting to get into our system!”kyile said. “Stay on it l.t!”sotril ordered the engineer monitoring the fire wall. “So far it is holding. I will make sure it keep that way!”kyile said. “Keep a close eye!”sotril ordered. Kyile agreed.
“I have the crew on line!”lt. Palmer reported. “On speakers!”sotril ordered. “Hello!”Hadley said. “This is commander sotril on the enterprise! We need your help. “Sotril said. “We will be there !”Hadley said.
The battle waged on between the two ships. Hadley and the doctor went though the coridor. They hit anything that moved. The tactic seamed to be working. They had a mission and it was an inportent one. It had to work. Every thing depended on it.
They tried to dodge attack. They got to an area hear the engineering section. Hadley put the phaser on overload. He threw it. They ran as fast as they could. They rushed to get out of the fray.
The phaser exploded near the engines. The engines were not destroyed but did a lot of damage.
The two got away from the blast site. They were beamed away by enterprise transporter chief takigawa. They were beamed on to the enterprise.
“the engines will go critical !”jouquin said. “Begin evacuations! I have some suprises up my sleave!”Khan declared.
The bridge crew started to leave the bridge. Kahn wanted the withdrawl to be as orderly and syimtematic as possible.
“The ocupants of the vesssel are abandoning ship! “Mathews said. “Beam as many as we can but keep our distence!”sotril said.
Kahn and most of the crew made it to esape pods. Orthers were beamed on to the enterprise.
The engines exploded.soon the entire vessel exploded with it. Kahn and his alies were able to use the distraction to get away.
“Starship log, commander sotril in command of the enterprise has gone to elba 2. We have aprehended several of kahn’s alies but not kahn himself. I suspect that kahn is not finished.
Chief takigewa activated the transporter beam. The transporter powered up. The silohoute began to take a more solid form. It became humanoid.the fugure became human. It was reveled to be captain Addison mccomic.
“Welcome back Addison !”sotril said. “Its good to be back. Good work out there!”Addison said.”thank you!”sotril said. ” Why did kahn come to elba?”she asked. “He wanted to get alies among the elba citizenry including Alison !”Addison said.”I see!” Sotril said.
“This is not over. Not at all! Kahn will keep going. I suspect he will soon take it up a notch. This will be a long struggle but i intend to win this!”Addison declared.
“Commadores log, my task foce is stil without power. All atempts to restore crucial power has failed. We are not giving up. ”
A crewman started to get ill. Then several orthers got ill as well. In a short order,the entie bridge crew were wrendered unconscious.
There were similar events all over the constilation. The same thing happened thoughout the task force.
On the bridge of the constilation,there was multiple transports. This included Alison and kahn. Kahn was very pleased with what had happened.
“Get the crew into satus! ” kahn said. “Well played kahn!”Alison said. Kahn smiled. ” This is only the beginning. Soon my new order will be a reality!”kahn declared.
“We believe that this was a member of kahn’s iner circle! Zoey holister! “Lt. Commander gioto said. “I SEE! “Addison said.
Addison went over to the holding cell.
“I know you think you won but you have not. ” Zoey said. “I am not nieve. I know that this is not over. I know he won’t give up. Neither will i !” Addison said.
“How are the patcients?”Addison asked. “Cranky! One is a fellow doctor !”piper said. “I am first officer Hadley. “The exo said. “I am doctor leonard mccoy !”the doctor said. “Captain! Captain merek was under mind control. I hope the file on him will reflect that! ” Hadley said. “It will!”Addison said. “Thank you!” He said.
“Bridge to mccomic!”palmer said. She went over to a com pennel. “Go ahead!”addy said. ” your needed on the bridge !”palmer said.
“The task force has reganed full power ! They have not responded to hails. Star fleet command suspect that they have been coopted !” Palmer said. “Oh my!”liz said.
“I suspect they have modified methiselah to accomplish this! “Lary marvic said. “Get me star fleet command!” She said.
“You believe that kahn has seized control of the commadore’s task force?”admiral komack asked. ” I am certain of it. We need our ships to be modified. Mr. Kyile and mis galiunion have created a fire wall. I want to go after him!”Addison said. ” this could turn the federation into a battle zone!”komack said. ” IT may already be i am afraid !”the captain said. “Solve this quickly addy!” The admiral said. “Will do!” Addison said.
Kahn got several x inmates including an andorian. “I would like you all to Join me. I plan to keep the infrastructure of the federation in place. I intend to replace the federation with a new order headed by me! You can be a part of it!”kahn said. The people listened.
End of part five
The ship had done every thing it could think of to avoid detection. The crew all genetically augmentedy combined there colective skills to accomplish this task. The ship was able to dodge all ships and bases in order to make it to elba.
“We have cleared all obsticles until we arive at elba!”McPherson reported. ” Very good!”kahn said. “Elba is a psiciatric facility. It is hevily shielded. Most of the patcients are criminally insane!” Jouquin said. “Can you get us pass the shields ?”kahn asked. “Working on it now !”zoey said.
Zoey tried to hack into the security network. She had to do it without alerting the facility that was her plan.
On earth she had been a computir hacker. She did it for the thril. She had no ideology or aganda. It was just about the fun of it. She did not know that she was a genetic alteration. When she was put into foster care,her origens were carefully hiden.
She ended up in jail in ilinois. After completing her sentence,she was recruited by kahn. She was a key aset in his rise to power.
She hoped that she would be a key player in his hoped return to power. This was quite a challenge. She was happy to take up this challenge.
She refused to believe that she was washed up. She could thrive in this century. Her apearent age was early thirties. She was stil vibrent and would prove it.
She atempted to gain acess to the facilities shields. Things were not as hard as she feared it could be. She stil did have it. She was about to have it proven to others,her crew,her leader and to herself.
“There shields are down excellentcy!”zoey proudly anounced. “Well down !”kahn said.
“Orders?” The helm asked. The pilot was not confident in and of himself. He was very much a yes man.
“Take us to the administration complex!”kahn ordered. The pilot quickly complied. The vesel speaded to the command and control complex for the planet.
“Stand by all weapons !”kahn ordered. Jouquin got the weapons ready. “Turets standing by Excellentcy!”he reported. “Very good ! “Kahn said.
The ship came in to the planets sky. A planitary serface to space platform fired on the clark’s sumit. The sumit dodged the attack. The mistle detonated without impacting the civilian vessel. The vesel came about. The ship fired on the turets. The mistle was powered by smal versions of methusilah.
“Complex imobilized!”McPherson declared.” Take us to the command building !”kahn ordered. The ship headed to the command and control building.
While Addison was giving her adress,the room went into full panic. Addison sprung into action.she tried to clear out the room. Orthers also sprung into action.
The hearing room exploded. The room had already been clared out. There were no casulties from that strike. It was not over. There would be more!
The sumit hit another mistle shield platform found on another island. That platform was nutralized. The sumit then fired on an unmaned power station. The power was off line all over the planet. The entire planet was venerable.
Alison had been in her cell. The cell was a smal cubicle with a force field. She wore a blue jump suit. She was invited to atend the heating but declined to paticipate. She did not care. She felt the deck was stacked against her. To her all of this was a sham. She refused to be involved.
She was laying on the cot. She was barefoot. Suddenly the force field was deactivated. She saw other inmates run.
The gaurds were unable to restore order. She saw a transporter beam. She walked saw several people emerge. They apeared to be wairing some kind of uniform but one she did not recognize.
“Alison krenic! It seams we have a comon enemy! Addison !”kahn declared. “Who are you?”Alison asked. “I am kahn. I am about to create a new order. I want you to be a part of it and you can revenge on Addison at the same time!”kahn said.
“How do you so much about me?”she asked. “I know what i need to know miss krenic. Come on. This is your big chance!”kahn said. She thought over it quickly. “Fine! Lets do it!”she said. They had to duck phaser fire. Addison entered with gaurds. She had a phaser rifle in hand.
“Well well the two bigest thones in my side together !”Addison said. “You can’t posibly think you stop me Addison ! As we use to say in my century,i have all my bases covered “kahn said.
“You have a ship designed for non military scientific reserch. You can’t possably hope to take down the federation in an obsolete ship with a rag group of has bens!” Addison asked.
“You underestimate my powers and my abilities Addison ! That is your undoing !”kahn declared. “I am no amatur kahn !”Addison said.
“You are a litle girl trying to take on an avalanche. I asure you hunie you will fail!”kahn told her. Addison was about to fire the rifle. As she got ready to fire,kahn fired on her. He fired on her rifle. Using his enchanced abilities,he used percision fireing and vaporized just her weapon. She droped the enurgy weapon and got away in time.kahn fired on the gaurds. “fall back!” She ordered the security officers to back off. They fell back.
“Joquin get Alison to the ship! I will be joining you shorly. After i settle some unfinished business!” Kahn said.
“Kahn don’t trust her! She will betray at her first opportunity ! “Adison told him. “mis mccomic your concern for me is quite touching !”kahn said. Alison and the folowers of kahn beamed up to the ship. “now this is between you and me! As it should be!”he declared.
“I could not agree more! ” Addison responded. Addison made a play for kahn’s phaser rifle. Kahn tried to strike her with the rifle. Addison sumoned all of her strengh to recist him. She tried to get control of the weapon.
“You canot defeat me! I am an uber man and you are an ant. An act cannot harm a god!”kahn told her. She grabed the gun with all her might. “You sir are no god!”she said. She took the gun and threw it across the room.
Kahn went for the weapon. She struck him. He hit her back. She deflected him. She came back at him and punched him.
He hit her. She met his punch and punched back. “Not bad for an unter mench!” She declared.
He kicked him. She fell acros the room. She ran at him. He ran to her and she fell into a wall. She slamed into the wall. He hit her before she could come tu.
She quickly rose to the ocasion. She got up and hit the super man. Kahn hit back again. She hit her. She hit back. She was not going to be overcomed by kahn. No way she thought to herself.
She hit him. She and him roled around on the ground. They traded jabs. Both tried to over power the orther. It was quite a grudge match.
“Addison ! Give up!”kahn said.”never! I never yield. It is why i was academy boxing champ four years running !” She said.
He tried to pin her down. She grabed him and hit him back.she turned the tables and pinned him. “I am laughing at your superior intelect !”she said.
He was highly anoyed by her words. He tried to get the uper hand. She refused to let him. She was not going to give up . Not this time.
She struck him. She let her survival instinct take over. She hit him. She did not give him time to react. She just kept coming.
He waited. He toyed with her for a while. Then he sprung into action. He strck back. She hit her head on the floor. She was rendred unconscious.
He went over to her. “I could end this all right now! Tempting.i am not ready to end our relationship just yet. I am having too much fun. I gues we are destened to meat again! Until next time!” Kahn said.
He went over to the phaser rifle.he picked up the rifle. He stuned her. Then he beamed away.
The clarks sumit avoided target that would cause heavy casulties.the ship fired multiple voleys on command and control targets. They destroyed a hanger bay. Then the ship left orbit.
“We have cleared elba air space excellentcy!” Jouquin reported.”well done people ! Welcome to the future Alison !” Kahn said. “I was expecting a juno class reserch ship!”Alison said. “It is temporary. You use whatever you can get your hands on !”he said.
“I am quite impresed with what i have seen thus far!”she said. “I hoped you would !” He said.
“Comadore i have located the proxima. The ship was badly damaged!”masada reported. “On screen ! Lets have a look!”comadore decker ordered.on the view screen was displayed the uss proxima. The ship has a gaping hole in the ship near the cargo bay. “My gosh!” Decker said.
“Damaged area were sealed off. Incoming message from proxima. Captain terrel was not injured!”the com officer said. “Begin coordinating rescue operations!”decker said.
Suddenly the bridge went dark. “Report!”decker said. “I have lost helm control !” The helmsman anounced. “Navigation is out!” The navigator reported. “Science is off line !”masada said. “Com unit is stil working !”the com tech reported. ” Life support is active!” An enginering officer reported. ” they dont want ua dead yet!”decker said.
“Entire fleet reports similar incidents!” The com oficer said. “They are going to atempt a hostile takeover of the fleet! Kahn!” Decker said. “What do we do? “The exo said. ” We wait!”decker said.
“The fire wall is active!”kyile reported. “Unfortunately we won’t know just how good it is until we test it in acual use!” Irina said.”unfortunately that is how it goes! Regardless good work!” Sotril said. They thanked the commander.
“Captain! We have lost contact with elba Two !” Palmer said. “The asililum planet?”dr. Piper asked. ” The fleet under decker reports that they have been imobilized! ” palmer said. “We will have to test out that fire wall! Irina set course for elba! I am guessing kahn may be still be there!” Sotril said.
“Guessing ?”piper said. “A figure of speach mark. “Sotril said. “Course laid in!” Irina reported. “Engage mr. Dasale!”sotril ordered. The course was activated. The ship was off.
“Meret dead?” The doctor asked.”there is a good chance of that. I am thinking that may be the case!” Hadley said. “We have to do something !”the doctor said. “We are currently traped in a brig!”the exo said. “We cant just do nothing ?”the doctor said. “We will! When the time iS right!”he said. “When in blazes will that be?” The doctor said. “I don’t know yet. I will be looking for it!”Hadley asured him. ” I hope it comes soon!” The doctor said. “So do i!” The first officer said.
End of part four
“Captain’s log while ships along the federation border are on the lookout for the s.s clarks sumit,i am undergoing a different mission. A much more personal one. ”
Addison got into the shartle hangor bay. She went into the shartle craft Galileo. She entered the craft. She sat down at the cockpit. She began pre flight.
The bay door opened. The shartle lifted off. The scout ship left the bay. The smal ship was off.
“We will engage in a chain link formation. We will work from a designated search grid!”commadore mat decker said. ” You think that they are out hear?” First officer asked. “They have to be! They have to be in the general vicinity!”decker said.
“Commadore! I just detected a minor energy flucuation. We apear to be alright !”science officer masada said.”keep an eye on it! “Decker said. “You got it sir!”the science tech reported.
” Excellentcy! 14 Federation ships afected. Seven are constitution class heavy crushers. This includes commadore decker. With the trogen horse we will control most of the federation fleet.”McPherson reported.
“We can have there fleet imobilzed in seconds excellentcy!’jauqauin said. “Soon i will once again be a prince with power not over milons but billions upon bilions. An empire bigger then ceaser,alexzander and nopolien and all the others combined! Well done!”khan said.
“What now?”zoey asked. ” We wait for the right opportunity ! It will be hear soon! “He declared.
The shartle neared the planet. It brought back memories for her. She was once instionized in a non juducial mental health facility.
“I don’t need to be hear!”a younger her said. She wore a pink cover all with a white undershirt. ” your family are woried you. So are your friends. You have been though more then someone your age should.”a younger Elizabeth danner said.
“I just need time. I need to sort this out on my own. I’m not alright but i will be. No one understands that! Not every thing depends on a comunity! Don’t start with the no man is an island ! ” she said.
“Elba control this is the shartle galio 7. Requesting permission to enter. Sending authentication code now!”Addison said. ” Authentication code confirmed. Releasing shield in twenty second. Please folow landing protical to the letter!”the controler said. “Understood!”she said.
The shield came up. As soon as the ship was inside the shield grid,the shield was rengaged. She always hated that part. She felt traped. She hated that feeling even knowing she could leave whenever she wanted to. The shartle went to the landing area. The scout craft landee in the designated landing pad.
Addison excited the vessel. She was greated by several officials. “Donald it is good to see you!”Addison said. “Hello Addison ! It was good of you to come! “Donald cory said. “It is important for me to be hear! Sam do you always take the most difficult cases?”she asked.
“I like a challenge ! The rehab comision asked me to. They want her represented!”samual t cogly said.
“So will i be alowed to see her before i apear before the comision?”Addison asked. “Yes! The meating room has an emergentcy force field. You will be completly safe!”cory said. “Of course!”Addison said. Adison folowed the staff.
Irina had trouble sleeping. She tried and tried but gave up. She decided to do some reserch.
Commander sotril was doing paper work. The door opened.irina entered. “May i speak to you?” Irina asked.
“Of course ensign! “Sotril said. The commander was experiencing mild discomfort due to her pregnancy. She tried to mask that fact.
“Sir i am concerned and i can’t get it out of my head! “Irina said.”what is the saurce of your concern?”the commander asked.”well kahn is outmaned out guned. He has a non military vessel with a smal cadre of folowers. He can’t beat us in a military confrintation. My reserch shows he is a pragmitist and a realest. On earth he took risk but they always had a resonible chance of success. His only option is a gurila war. He wil probably base his campagn on the barberiens who took down rome or the viet cong. “Irina said.
“That seams to be a valid supisistion!”the vulcan commander said.
“We asume his thinking will be two dimensinal but he has the ability to adapt to unusual situations. The federation has a central computor network. Any ship can acess the federation archive. Being an open society we try to have few secrets. We have to have some. I believe he will try to hack into our network. I believe that is how he plans to take us down !”irina said.
“I believe you are probably corect!”sotril said. “I vant to set up an independent fire wall for lack of a better term. “She said.
“Do it! Coordinate with lt. Kyile. This is your project. “Sotril said.”i vill get it done!”she said.
The doctor was getting ster crazy.he paced up and down the brig. “Your not clastrophobic are you?”Hadley asked. “Of course not! “The doctor said. ” please don’t vomit!”merek said. “I’m trying not to. This imprisonment thing is not for me! I’m a doctor not an inmate!”the doctor said.
They heard the swish of the door as it opened. They heard the sound of footprints. They saw several gaurds. “Captain merek! His excellentcy wants to see you!” McPherson said.
Merek did not want to see him but figured he did not have a say.he got up.
On McPherson’s order,the tech monitoring the cell lowered the force field. Merek came out. The field was reactivated. He followed the gaurds.
Merek was escorted to the captain’s office. The door opened. Merek was escorted inside. “Wait outside !”khan instructed the gaurds. They did so.
“I need your help captain !”khan declared. “I will never help you!”merek said. “Oh you will!”khan said.
“The Vulcans! They are peaceful even pacifists. That was not always the case! They used the mind as a weapon. Telipathic warfare! “Kahn said.
The former war lord placed his hand on him. “Your not a Vulcan !”merek said. “That was quite profound!”khan retorted.
“My mind to your mind my thoughts to your thoughts! From this time foward you will be my subject. You will folow my directives! “Khan said.
Addison waited in a visitor room.the door opened,Alison entered. The gaurds left. “I’m suprised to see you hear! “Alison said.
“I had to come anyways so why not say hello!” Addison said. “You want your conscience alived. You want asurences i am not your old friend. You want me to give you some kind of absolution. I can’t do that. “Alison declared.
“I know! “Addison said. “I won’t ask for forgiveness myself! Whatever we were is gone now! “Alison said.
“I gues i expected that! I am not sure why i came to see you. I regret it went the way it did”Addison said. “You said what you came to say! Our conversation is concluded!” Alison said.
“I came all this way. I am not quite ready to depart! “Addison said. They just sat there silently.
“Commander incoming mesage from the star base. Captain merek claims to have snuck on to an esape pod! The constilation is heading to pick them up. “Palmer said.
“This is a bad idea! It could be a trap!”chief gioto said. “Decker has to suspect that right?”yeoman smith commented. “One ship v one ship. Those are not bad odds!”piper said. “This is bigger then what we think! Khan cannot be underestimated !”dr. Danner said. “Agreed! “Sotril said.
Adison hoped to get answers. She hoped to acheve some kind of closure. That did not happen.she doubted it would but she hoped. Some things just don’t ever make sense perhaps!
“Anything ?” Arial shaw asked.” No! Who is she? Is she my old friend. Is she a robot? I don’t get this !”Addison said. “None of us do! Not fully! I’m glad i am not on the comision. “Arial said. “What will star fleet recommend?” Addison asked. ” Confinement to elba for now. I would perfer indefinitely but i doubt the comision will go for that! “Shaw said. “That seams best! “Addison said.
“What will you say to the commission ?” Arial asked. “I have no idea. I may just wing it. Go with the first thing that pops in mu head! “She said. “Wish i could be a fly on the wall during your testimony !”she said.
“I have the pod! Sending coordinents to helm!”the science officer reported. ” I have it!”the helm said. “Set course for the pod. Ready tractor beam!”captain clark terrel ordered.
The ship headed for the pod. The vesel engaged a tractor beam on the smal pod. The pod was tractored into the cargo bay. The pod entered and landed in a berth. The pod completed landing procedures. Merek stood straght and excited the pod.
The medical team was ready to meat them. The captain walked towards the crew of the proxima.suddenly the captain of the vesel detonated himself. The blast engulfed the room.
Confrence room one A.
“This hearing to adress the satus of Alison morgen crenic is called to order! Today we will hear from captain Addison marie mccomic. Captain !”the chairman said.
She wore the green dress uniform of a female officer. She placed her hand on the computor module. “Addison marie mccomic bragen born Addison marie Taylor. Currently member of star fleet. Commands starship enterprise. Do you have a satement?”the chairman asked.
“I do mr. Chairman !”she said. “You may speak captain. “He said. “I have had to do many difficult things in my carer. This is the hardest. The person in question was a close friend of myine. ..”
Suddenly there was a sound of some kind of air or space craft right above them. Every one ducked. The ship overhead fired on the building. Addison helped several of the commisionors to safty.
End of part three
“Captain’s log,the enterprise was saverly damaged in the battle with kahn an enigmatic figure from earth’s past. We are beginning damage control procedures. Fortunently casulties were lite. ”
“Engineering !you stil in one peace pitcarin?”Addison asked. “I don’t know about that but i am stil functioning. “The chief said. “How did the engines hold up?”she asked. “Minnor damage but nothing too serious. This ship is the stuf of legends. “The engineer said. “Can’t argue with you there! Keep me aprised!”Addison said.
Nurse chapel and orther medical officers worked to aid the wounded on the bridge. Addison was nursing her arm. There was a visible wound. “Captain ! Sickbay!”dr. Piper said. “There are orther crewman in far worse shape then myself mark! The crew comes first!” She said.
Several crew were transfered off the bridge to sickbay.most were on there own power. Only two were transported by bio strecher.
“Well we know that methuselah works! Right now i wish it was a falure!”daystrom said. ” i know what you meen. Whatever happens it is on us!”lary marvic said. “I know! That is why we must do whatever we can to stop it! “Daystrom said. “I agree!”the man said.
Yeoman smith began to survey the ship. She found a broken circut and began to repair it. She was traned in administration but sence joining the enterprise crew she has expanded her skils.
Lt. Kyle went to check the computer core. He did a full diegnostic on all ships system. He was through. He left no stone unturned.
Lt. Commander giito was known as being cyinical. He felt that he had to be. Star fleet was made up of idelest,dreamers. This made people like gioto necessary.at least that was how gioto felt about it. This all concerned him. The enterprise has been wounded. Though they outmaned and outguned the clark’s sumit,kahn proved a worthy oponent. Gioto tried to find any problem that might have been overlooked.
Qurters of kahn
“The battle did not quite as planed but methusah is all we hoped it to be and more!”jouquin said. “It is indeed.i am quite inpresed. The battle was an opening salvo in a wider war. A war to revive humanity! “Kahn said.
“I assume you have a plan ? “The younger aid asked. “I am forming one. It will have to be multi facited. A comprehensive plan. A program for the future. We will be unstoppable !”kahn asured him.
“There was some kind of attack but it is over now!”merek said. “They were attacked by romulons.the recent attacks were star fleet!” Hadley said. “What is his game? Really he wakes from a long hybernation and resumes being Alexander the great now on an insteler scale?”the doctor said.
“Some people are who they are.change is difficult !”the captain said. ” I hate to just do nothing !”the doctor said. “No we will look for an opportunity and when we have one,we will take it!”the captain asured his fellow captives.
Seated at the table was captain mccomic,commander sotril,chief engineer pitcarin,doctor piper,security chief gioto,helm officer dasale,lt. Irina galiunion, dr. Daner,lt. Kyile,lt palmer and chief takigawa and lt. Tim mathews. The captain called the meating to order.
“Mr. Mathews!”she said. ” The man who calls himself khan is this man. Kahn nonian singh. He was from earths past. He was part of genetic engineering. After a failed crusade to take over earth,he dissapered. There were stories he fled into space ! It seams they were true”tim mathews said.
“According to the files i could find the man is unpredictable. One minute he is a kind,the next minute he is a monster beyond compare. “Elizabeth said.
“What is his goal now? He is awake after almost three hundred years? What now?”Addison asked.
“I believe using history as a guide,he will try to reasert himself into human afairs. He will atempt to create a new empire. He probably see the federation as the bases of a new empire!” Mathews said.
“I believe he has a belief that humanity canot function properly without him. His ego will not allow him to tolerate an organization that he does not paticipate in. “Danner said.
“I believe he has in his own way declared war on the federation. He has a civilian reserch vessel but he is intuitive,inovative resourcefull. We cannot underestimate kahn!” Gioto said.
“He has methusalah. We see clearly that his goal is to weponize it. “Pitcarin said.
“Star fleet wants us to head for star base 12. We will complete repairs there. Star fleet is going to be beefing up security on the border. The fronteer is on high alert. “Commander sotril said.
“We are not going to be part of the task force looking for them? “Dassale asked. “We took a lot of damage. We need to make sure we are in tip top shape !”Addison said.
“I assume if something happen while on route we will join in?”irina asked. “Your starting to figue me out. Correct. Is there are no more questiones,we are ajurned!” Addison said.
Every one got up. Dr. Danner went over to Addison. “I can’t believe you want to sit on the side lines?”Elizabeth asked. “I won’t risk the ship more then i have to liz. “Addison said.
“A big fight between you and kahn,its inevitable isint it?”liz asked. “Yes i think it is. What he did with a scout ship. This thing has just begun !”Addison said.
“McPherson ! You wanted to see me?”kahn asked. “Excellentcy! The methusalah is quite impresive. There design is very sound but it is a bit of overkill. I can design smaller verson of the device that do the same thing. They need not be bulky or combersome. Sir i believe we can use this one as a master unit. I think we can mass produce these poor man’s version.”she said.
“Methuselah can fuel our revolution !”jequin said. “Anything mankind can do. We of superior intelect can do far better! “Kahn declared.
“The problem is that this will take time! We have one ship and it is a non military scout vessel. I doubt we will find alies in the federation. I believe that the humans of this time enjoy there weakness !” Jouquin said.
“Then what? I rather not aly with the Klingon or romulins or God Forbid the tholiens!”zoey rayburn said.
“No they canot be trusted. No one but us can have acess to methuselah!” Kahn said.
“We will have to wait! Hide out and build ships as a secrit shipyard some where?”jauqauin said. “No! I have a different idea! We wont wait. Strike while the iron is hot. The time for the revolution is now! This is our time! This is our monent and we must take it!”kahn declared.
Kahn now revealed his plan.
His inner circle was quite supportive of the plan. They got right to work implimenting it.
Star base 12
U.s.s enterprise bridge
“Sandard orbit acheved!” Irina reported. “Very good. Palmer begin coordinate with star base control ! Lets begin repairs and asestment.”Addison ordered.”aye sir!”sotril said.
“Commander sotril will handle repair and asestment until i return !”she said. “Return ?”Smith asked.
Yeoman smith was shocked. As her personal asistnent,smith knew every thing Addison knew. Today she was blindsided. She had been left totally out of the loop. She did not know why.
“I have some personal business to atend. I will be back soon! “Addison said. Every one was confused but went with it. Addison then left the bridge.
End of part two
