“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 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.

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.

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.

“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.
