“Captain’s log,the enterprise has answered a distress call from a puritan vessel. The puritan claim that an enigmatic race used telepathy to coerce the females who turned on the crew. The commander of the vessel Is quite concerned by my being In command of the enterprise. He is convinced that they will strike again using the same tactic!”
Seated was captain Addison mccomic. Also assembled was commander sotril, security chief giotto,Dr. Piper,chief enginer pitcarin,lt. Palmer, lt. Dasale,yeoman Smith,Dr. Dahner,and lt.ruins Herrington. Also there was the captain and first officer of the puritan ship.
“Our ship was on an exploration mission. We were contacted by an alien ship. They called themselves the hendreni. They claimed to be some kind of ambassadors of intergalactic peace. We are a non violent people. We let them come a bored. They had some kind of effect on our female crewman. With there help,they seized our ship and marooned us in the escape podes. “Egreer said.
“It could be a form of telipathy or a pheromone . it could be a mind control techeque either natural or though technology!”Dr.piper said.
“Captain the fact that the ship two senior officers are female isd promlimetic. “Egreer said.
“We know what the ship looks like.even if they use a different vessel we will be on the look out. “Lt.dasale said.
“It may not be that easy.we cannot underestimate the threat that they pose. “The purutan first officer said.
“What is there end goal ?why capture these ships?”gioto asked.”I know. At this point it really does not matter. “The exo said.
“I want to get as far away from the area. We will maintain course at high warp for the nearest star base.”Addison ordered.
“Captain you must temporarily step aside as commanding officer for the good of your crew!”Egreer said.”she is the captain. She does not cower to any one !”ryian said.
“She May not have a choice my! The puritan exo said. “That will. Be all. “Addison said. Everyone got up from the table. They started to leave the room. “Barry! I need you to hang on a minute!”Addison said.”of course! “Commander gioto said. “Sotril a moment !”Addison said.
The two went to a corner. The commander Could not make our what was being said . the conversation was intense but cordial. They both seam to agree on how to procede. The two dispersed.
Addison went over to the commander. “Bary! I need you to act as a kind of stand by captain.I will instruct the department heads to follow your command if you chose to take it. “Adison said.
“I can’t do that Addison!” the chief security officer said. “Bary your first duty is to the ship. I need chief pitcarin In engineering. I need Dr. Piper in a support role. Look I have to know you have my back. I need you to promise me that you will get me out of the way if I present a threat to the ship. I need you to do this. ” Addison implored him. “Alright! I will do it! I don’t like it. I understand. I will get the ship and crew to safety!”he promised her. “I know you will. I want you to attend all high level briefings. You will be Kind of a shadow captain. “She said. “Very well !” he said.
“What do you think ?” Addison asked. “I wish I could scan a brain of someone under there influence. “Dr. Piper said.”using one gender to overpower a ship or society is not unheard of. “Chief engineer pitcarin said. “We need to find a counter agent just in case we can’t get close enough to a Safe harbor!”Addison said. the crew was not sure they could do it but they would try.
“The closest base is star base 15. It is a five day journey at Maximum warp!”sotril said.”we have to try. Set course for the base Ryan !”Addison ordered. “You got it add!”she said.
Ryan altered the course. Lt. Dasale activated the engage button.”on course captain !”the senior helm officer reported.
“We are heading to star base 15,from there you can a range for one of your ships to return to your home space!” Addison said.
“Why don’t your female crew be confined to quarters?”Egreer Said. “I don’t believe that is necessary yet. My crew has a reputation for being one of the most professional crew in the fleet! “Addision said.
“Your not taking this situation seriously! Captain !”Egreer said.”I respectfully dissagre! Captain I won’t have my ship disrupted.”she said. “Why have you not stepped down?”Egreer asked. “Chief gioto to is prepared to take over if I get out of line. “She said.”it won’t be enough. Your letting your ego get in the way of the safety of your crew!”Egreer said.
“Look your a guest ,captain. Do not test my hospitality !”the captain told Egreer. The alien commander was not pleased. For the time being he relented.
“I am detecting another vessel in the vicinity ! I am detecting female and male crewman Excellency!” the former first officer of the puritan vessel said.
“They recovered the pods. They will not fall for our usual subterfuge excelentcy!” arced argued.
“Agreed! We will have to alter our plan considerably!”klasic suggested.
Klasic thought it over. Now he had a plan. It would not be easy but he believed it could work.
Qurters of Addison mccomic
Miranda entered. “You wanted to see me?” Miranda asked. “Come in Miranda!”she said. She walked in and Sat down.
“You were quite a mystery. We had no idea where you came from. We sent your DNA to a central medical data base. They determined that you are my sister!”she said.
“Your sure?”Miranda said .”yes . it came as quite a surprise. I never my parents had died when I was young. It seams they may stil be alive or died later. “Addison said.
“Were you close?”Miranda asked. “I remember things that indicate we were. We have a few pictures. It is all a distant memory. “She said.
“They were kind,loving funny. I think they were runing from something or someone. “Miranda said.
“What happened to them?”she asked. “They left me on the planet Liz found me. They said they would come back for me when it was safe. ” Miranda told her.
“Did they mention a sister?”Addison asked. “No! They did not.so do we have any other siblings ?”the girl asked. “Two brothers.I tried to reconnect with them but I did not get too far. They had there own lives,there own universe and I did not fit in I guess. ” she said.
“So I am an aunt!”Miranda said. “Yea!”she said.
“Can you say aunt Miranda!”she said. Al sarek. Could get out was aunt anda. They laughed. “Welcome to the family!”Addison said. She hugged her.
“Captain to the bridge!”lt. Palmer said over the com. “I got a go. We will talk later !”she Said. “Ok!”Miranda said.
Addison entered the turbo lift.she saw her husband Ryan. “Where is your shadow?”Ryan asked.”either on the bridge or will Be there shortly. Probibly twenty seconds before hearing it. “Addison said.
“I am surprised. It seams where you go he goes !”Ryan commented. “Why Ryan Nathaniel are you getting jealous?”Addison asked.”no of course not!”he said. “You could always challenge him to a conut kalife?”she said. “Has anyone told you you have a very odd sence of humor?”he asked. “I have heard that!”she said.
“So I hear you have put males as under studies in department run by women?”she asked. “It was a precaution! Just until this crises is over. “She declared. “You do know that you have set back gender equality by two hundred years?” he asked.
The door opened. The two were laughing .”why are you laughing?this is not a laughing matter!”Egreer said. “I realize that captain!report!”the captain ordered.”we are getting a distress call from a anadeveren sector.”Palmer Said.
“Captain! This is surely a trap! You cannot take us further into What is hostile space!”Egreer said.
She went to a corner. She motioned for her shadow first officer. Lt.commander and he came over.”this is a trap,I am certain of it!”Addison said.”as am I”he said. “If We don’t take there bait they will assume we know there plan! I believe we will be attacked regardless! “She said. “We must prepare! “Giito said. “Agreed!”she Said.
They went back to the center seat.”alright! We are going to ignore the distress call. I believe that thus hasten an attack from our enemies. Lets be on stand by alert!”Addison Said.
End of part three.
Lt. Commander gioto did not have a first name in his only appearance on Canon trek,devil in the dark. I took it from the actor who played him,Bary Russo.
“So ! Who I hope to one day be my adopted daughter is your mini me?” Elisabeth danner asked.”it would appear so!”Addison said.”I see. She has been a complete mystery from the get go now even more so!” Liz said .
“I know. Have you told her?”she asked. “Not yet. I wanted to talk to you first. Do you want me to?”Liz asked. “Can I tell her Liz?”she asked.”of course! ” danner responded. “Thank you! “She said.
“I gues this came as quite a shock!”Liz said. “You have no idea !”Addison said .”you always felt like your birthperents abandoned you. You felt guilty for feeling that way. “Liz said .”where are they? Why did they abandon me and why now did they abandon Miranda?”Addison asked. “There are no easy answers. When you learn the answers you may not like those answers addy!”Liz told her.
“I know that! I have to know!”Addison said.”I expected no less from you ad!” Liz told her. “Lt. Palmer to captain mccomic!”the com officer said over the intercom.she went over to a com panel. “Go ahead Audrey!” Addison said. “Addison we are receiving a distress call from the puritan . they are requesting immediate asistence!” Palmer reported.
“Alright have ry plot a course and then have dasale head for there location. Have pitcarn ans paper’s team on stand by !”the captain ordered “you got it daddy!”the com officer said.
“I am on my way up! “Addison Said.”acknowledged! “Palmer said. “What was that?”Addison asked “what was what?”Liz asked. “When I mentioned our chief helm officer and you made a face! “Addison said. “No I did not. !”Liz protested.”you made a face! Something going on between you and Vincent ?”she asked.”no absolutely not!”she said “do you want something to go on between you and our helmsman?”Addison asked.
The turbo lift opened,the two entered. Liz smiled. Addison programmed it for the bridge.”your not answering that questione are you ?”Addison said .”no I’m not!” Liz said. “I am not afraid to admit I’m In love with the ships navigator !”Addison Said. The door opened and everyone heard what she said. .
“I really hope your referring to me ad!”ryian said.”you never know ry!”she said in response. “Not that this is too necessary at this point but captain on the bridge!”yeoman Smith declared.
“Thank you yeoman! Report!”Addison ordered.”sensors report no craft but I am picking up multiple escape pods!”sotril reported. “Are we detecting any debre or signs of explosion?”Addison asked.” Negitive. There Is a warp trail but no sign of starship destruction !”chief enginer pitcarin said. “Odd! Why would there mother ship just run off and abandon them?”Dr. Piper asked. “Wait a minute! I am detecting two distinct warp trails!”the enginer reported. “Are you sure?” Addison asked. The chief engineer gave her a look like she had two heads. She Said,”never mind!”she said.
“As soon as there in tractor range Vincent,have them tracturred in.”she ordered. “You got it !”dasale said. “Mark have medical teams on stand by!” Addison ordered.”of course! “Dr. Piper said.
The starship traveled at high warp. The captain wanted to get to the pods as as possible.
“I have a scan. This is most unusual! I am only detecting male life forms! Puritan have an integrated gender society. An all male crew is almost unheard of!”sotril said.
“Now in tractor range! “Sotril announced. The enterprise went to the pods. The pods were taken into the cargo bays. The pods began to flood into the bay.
“The pods are inside !”l.t Palmer reported. “Send the medical team to the pods. Gioto with me!”Addison said.
Addison got up from the command chair and headed for the turbo lift.the chief security officer followed the captain. The Vulcan first officer Sat down in the command chair. The captain and security chief left the bridge.the door closed.
In the cargo bay,Dr. Piper,Dr.mabanga,nurse chapel headed for the pods. A security officer opened the command pod.the medical team entered the pod.
“I am so glad you are hear. We feared we would be trapped in space!”ogreer said. “Some of us are a bit claustrophobic. “The first officer said.
“They do get a bit cramped. “Dr. Piper said. They seam to get nervous around nurse chapel and the other female in the med team. Piper found this odd. There was nothing in the databanks that indicated strife between the genders in puritan history. These people were almost afraid of women. Piper thought of himself who could be afraid of Christine ?
Addison and Gioto entered the cargo bay. “How are they?”Addison asked. “Other then some scrapes they seam to be in good health!”Dr.piper informed her. “I am captain Addison mccomic !”she said.”your the captain ?”agreer asked. “Yes I am. ” she said.
“Captain. Your ship is in grave danger so long as your in this reigion !”ogreer said.
“I don’t understand!”Addison said “our ship was taken over by aliens who call themselves the hendrini. They pretend to be some kind of missionaries for universal peace or something . they have an effect on female crew members. They used them to seize our ship. You cannot stay in charge captain. Not until your out of this area!”ogreer said.
End of part two.
“Your sure she is my sister?”Addison asked. “I have checked and rechecked . you have the same parents !” the doctor said. “My parents died when I was young.that is simply not possible. There is no possible way that she could be my sister!”Addison said. “DNA does not lie. I will see if Dr. Piper can give a second opinion if you like!”he said. “I would. Its nothing personal. “She said. “Its ok.I fully understand. “The doctor said.
Office of Dr. Piper
The older doctor entered. “You looked at his findings?”Addison said. ” I have the results but your not going to like it. “Dr. Popper said. “It can’t be mark. She is what seven. They died Mark. “Addison said. “I don’t have those kind of answers. All I do know is that is your biological sister. “Dr. Popper said.
“I was a bit harsh to your Jr surgeon!”Addison said .”he will get over it. You ok?”he asked. “I am in shock. It makes no sense. “Addison said .
“I know what this is about. You always justified the fact that you were abandoned by her your family because they died. Now your just left with unanswered questiones..”Dr. Piper said. “Are you a medical doctor or a pyscyitrist?”Addison asked. “I will leave that to Liz. “He said.”wise!” Addison said.
Qurters of captain Addison mccomic.
“You ok addy?”ryian asked. She put her head on his shoders.she wore a night gowan.he had shorts and no shirt.
“No I am not ok ry!”She said. “I figured! I was not sure if you would admit it!”he said. “I am not going to pretend not this time. Are they stil alive. If so where have they bean all this time?”Addison asked.
“You think they are still alive?”ruins asked.”I have no idea. I had finally had to terms with it. I had reconciled them and my other perents. Now it is all jumbled again.”she said. He held her.
“You will get to the bottom of this ,that I know. If I know you,you wont stop until you do!”he said.”your right!”she said.
Near by syistom
Puritan exploration and research vessel.
“This is the first sutch steller phynomina we have ever encountered. “First officer redeva said. “Your sure ? If if is not the scientific Senate wi not be pleased. I don’t want our sister ship having something to hold against us!”enginner litrell said.
“I’m excited. We have seem more in a year then Manny if our people on the home world have seen in four life times. “The energec female navigator said.
“I am detecting a warp signature.”science officer engina said.”a ship?we have not see so much as space degree sense we entered this area. “Betrie the navigator said.
“Hail the vessel!”the captain said. “They are hailing us captain !”the com officer said. “On screen! “The captain said. The com officer transfered the message to the main view screen.
On the screen displayed a bridge with bright light and colleges. It was a functional bridge.it was very festive. The crew were all skilled. They were all male.
“Greetings I am klasic,captain of the handrini conglomerate. We are a journey to spread love and peace and understanding throughout the galaxy. ” the commander said.
“We are on a mission to explore mostly interstellar phynomina. The more unusual the better!” the commander said.
“We are not that dissimilar I think!”he said. He had a very big smile. It was do big you could probably fit s startle craft inside.
“You are every attractive!”the first officer said. The exo was usually very reserve. You would expect this kind of outburst from a the navigator.everyone looked at her. “I’m sory. I don’t know where that came from. ” she said. She was quite embarrassed.
“It is quite alright. You are quite stunning yourself!” the commander said. “Thank you what a lovely thing to say!”she said.
“Perhaps you would be my guess. You and your command staf. We can swap stories and compare notes.” the commander said.
“Of course!” the commander said. The commander was suspicious of these guest. It seemed too convenient . the commander’s bull meeter went way up. He wanted to be nice. They wanted to be a good neighbor in the galaxy.he decided to take them up on there offer. He hoped that he would not regret it.
The commander left the security chief in charge of the ship. The commander and the rest of the crew Beemed to the alien ship. The crew materialized in the transporter room of the previously unknown vessel.
“Welcome a bored!”klasic said .he did not appear as friendly as he had before. Now his smile looked more devious. “Procede!” he said. The female officers moved against there comrades.
“What is this?” captain ogreer asked. “Call it a hostile take over!” klasic said.
End of part one.
On a planet on the orther side of the galaxy, a long time ago a man acted against the injustice of his day. He overthrow the tryent morleth and ushered in a new era.
He changed the name of the planet from zarden to qonos. He called the species klingons.
By the 1800s c.e on earth,the klingons rulled a vest empire. An oligarchs regime suplented the emparor. They returned qonos to its old name. That was a short time before the ship crash landed on earth.
The zardenites on earth learned the truth about the future. They have plotted to alter history. Now a group from the future and the present must unite to stop there plot. Can they do they do it in time?
The NASA crews on the ground and on the ship worked overtime to get the ship ready. The lunch date had been alcelerated in order to draw out the unsubs.
“I have produced a working teliporter!” a zarden female declared. “Are you sure it works?”the zarden in charge asked. “Certain. It is perfectly safe !” she said. The leader had his doubts. The teleportation device might be the only way to make this plan work.
They got there weapons was ready. The plan was designed to be bloody. They could have used explosives but they decided to use betleths. This was taken a Que from the Charles mansion playbook.
The goal was to scare the humans away from the space program. They believed it was possible. Interest had dwindled, this could finish the job. If it failed they could up the ante. That is what they would do.
While kirk and the crew of the enterprise were on standby. They we’re all over the space center. They impersonated everyone from janitors to Sr. Oficials and everything in between. Kirk was assigned to the control room.
Agent Hotchner and his team were also there. He suspected that the zardans were expecting him and his team to be there. He felt bad about witholdng the true identity of the zardans but he figured tha they would never beleve him. He was not sure he fully believed it.
A crazy cult of killers was close enough. It was accurate. Stil he did not like it. He did not like it at all. He had no choice . that was how he saw It.
“Ready Shaun?” whutcomb asked.”as ready as I will ever be!” he said. “I am as convinced ad ever that this is esential to the future of mankind!” whitcomb said. ” I am starting to!” colonel Christopher answered.
” you will succeed. I am sure of that. I know it!”whitcomb said.”I hope so!”the colonel said. “Good luck colonel. History awaits!”the director said. “Thank you sir!”he said.
The crew went to the space ship. They begin preflight poetical. As did the ground crew.
The zardan refused to be known until the last minute. They acted like a sleeper cell until they were activated.
It was now time. “I am live at the control room at the Johnson space center. The public relations office had confirmed that the craft is about to lunch. “A reporter said.
“Control to sagiterius one, are you ready?”the control said. “We are ready control!” Christopher said
Just as the head of the control room was about to give the go ahead to lunch. Then the Klingons a.k.a zardans began to pul out There weapons. So did kirk and his team. Then the f.b.I. got there guns ready as did the center security.
The zardans opened fire with phasers. The crew of the enterprise opened with there phasers. The fib fired with the guns.
Whitcomb clesdestintly told the vessel to lunch. The zardans fired and advanced. Kirk stunned two of the zardans. The zardans returned fire on the star fleet and the humans of this century.
Morgan had no idea what was going on. Was this some kind of new weapon? Where did they get them. This was very strange. Of course they had seen a lot.
The two teams continued to battled it out. The battle was fierce. The control room became a battle field. Kirk and his team worked hard to overpower the hostels.the hostels worked hard to stop them.
The ship started to leave. The zardans tried to stop the lunch. Kirk and him team tried to stop them. The ship neared the sky. The ship left earth and went into space.
The ship was away. It was off to Saturn. The battle had not knocked the wind totally out of the salles of the enemy. They kept fighting.
Kirk and Spock had stunned several of the zardans. Several more we’re stunned by the team. The last one was incompacitated by Hotchner.
Sudenly time stoped. “What’s going on? “Hotchner said. “I stoped time! “Gary seven said. “How is that possible?”Hotchner asked. “It is not as complicated as you might think. Look Aaron you can’t take the zardan in to custody. Mankind can’t learn of the existence of extra terestrials not yet.”seven said.
“What will you do with them ?” Hotchner asked. “They will be sent to a federation rehab center. It is more of a hospital then a prison. ” Kirk said.”you promise me that they will not be harmed?” Hotchner asked. “Yes I promise you that. “Kirk said.
Hotchner gave it some thought.he thought it over then answered. “Alright I will let you take them. “Hotchner said. “I need to erase your memory. It is vital that I erase your memory. We need as little records as we can of this incident!”Spock told him.
“I have a feeling I don’t really have a choice!”Hotchner said. “That would be accurate. “Spock said. Spock placed his hand on him. “My mind to your mind. My thoughts to your thoughts . ”
Spock purged his mind of anything connected to Gary seven. Spock knocked him unconscious. The crew then left the area. They All beamed away.
Time resumed.they woke up. Everyone was stunned. They started to remember what had occured.
“This breaking news, nsss has confirmed that the sagiterius has sucefully left earth and on it’s way to Saturn. NASA has confirmed that a cult that identifies with a fictitious alien race on a German science fiction show that has s cult flowering in the us. The cult members were all killed in a shout out. There were no fatalities amount nassa official or the f.b.I. ”
The reporter said.
“I gues you will be going back to the faragut!”Kirk said. “Getting sick of me Jim ?”He laughed. “So things will get normal on earth now.well you know ! “Dr. mccoy said. “Earth has some tough days ahead!”Kirk said “they will come though it!”Spock said. “With some difficulty but yes. This will be the result. What a result!”Kirk said.
“Life is not always pretty but it’s life. That Is all that maters!” sir John Burke. ”
The female members of the crew are enchanted by a mysteries ship. Now the ship must get to the bottom of it before it’s too late.
“Captains log,it was quite a whirlwind that got me hear. It is hard to beleve that all this happened in such a short amount of time. It is hard to comprehend all of it. How did I get hear? ”
“Abored the faragut we detected an odd reeding. That was how it all started. It definitely did not end there. ”
” captain I am detecting an unknown radiation not far from hear!” science officer sotril reported. “What kind of radiation?”Addison asked. “Uncertan! It is increasing. ” sotril reported. “This is very unusual. “Addison said.
“I should have walked away. Let the mystery be a mystery. I could not do that. I was too curios. You know what they say,curiosity killed the single cell life form. I did not listen. Hear I am,addy going bodily where angels fear to tread. ”
“The radiation is continuing to increase every few seconds. “Sotril reported. “I knew I should not investigate it. I had a very bad feeling about it. I ignored it. I figured it would be ok. ” she said.
“Ok! Ry set course for the radiation field. Helm lay in It once you have it!”Addison ordered. The course was entered in and the engines were activated. The constitution class vessel was off.
“I have a visual !” the Vulcan science officer said. “On screen! “Addison ordered. The com officer transfered the message to the Maine view screen. On the screen showed the radioactive field.
“I am detecting readings beyound the field. I cannot determine what it is. “Sotril said.
“I ordered a probe launched. My science officer launched the probe. “She said. The ship lunched the probe. The probe left the ship. The probe headed to the radioactive field.
“The probe is gone! I stil have talemitry!”the Vulcan officer said. “Then the probe was gone. The probe was destroyed. I should have walked away. I felt this could be a threat to the federation and to the galaxy. In my mind I had to act. ”
“Send to star fleet command all the data we have accumulated on the radioactive field!”Addison ordered. The com officer complied.
“We had shields up. Our weapons were standing by. We were ready to go. I knew it was a bad idea. I felt I had to act. I felt it was up to me to deal with this issue so I did.”
“Helm! Take us in!”she ordered. The faragut headed in at warp eight.the vessel headed inside. On the orther side the ship came out. “Detecting a Klingon battle crusher! Its weapon and screens are at maximum!” sotril announced. “Raise shields. Weapons on stand by!”she ordered. “Weapons at your command!”the helm reported.
The ship was ready for anything.
The Klingon ship was also ready. The Klingon vessel opened fire on the faragut. Adiison gave the order to return fire.
“The battle was intense. My crew were highly talented. Thanks to there efforts. We were able to the overcome the Klingon vessel. The vessel was forced to withdraw. What we did not know what was that the radioactive field was a gateway to the past. Earth ‘s past. It was my science officer who discovered that we went back to earth ‘s past. The questione was why?” she asked.
“I decided to go to the surface. The minute I transported,commander sotril reported that the Klingon had returned. This time they brought two of there closest friends. I ordered sotril to defend the ship. I was alone and abandoned. “She said.
“I am detecting alien Signiture. It is the klingons. ” one of the science officers reported. “Ok let’s follow the signature!” Addison ordered. Adison wore a t shirt,skirts and shandles. The rest of the crew also wore civilian clothing.
“We followed the Signiture to an apartment complex. We arrived too late. They already killed the nassa worker. ”
“I looked over the weapon. Of course I recognized it.it was a batleth. A Klingon weapon used for ceremonial but also in actual use. ”
“Someone is coming”a security officer asked. Addison ordered them to leave. They ran away. Before Addison could leave,She would be captured.
“I was arrested for murder. I declined to speak even to a lawyer. I was convicted and sentenced to death by lethal injection.I hoped someone would come to my rescue. Unfortunately it was James t kirk. “Addison said in her log.
“Captains log,time traval has been the stuf of science fiction and fantasy. During an exploration of a dying planet,we discovered We could go back in time. Then an accidental swing shot around the Sun sent us back into the 1960s.we went on our own to witness a pivotal event in human history.”
“This time was similar to those events but also very different.
“It all started for me back in the twenty third century.we were on slandered patrol. Things were prety quiet.when that happens that usually memes trouble is coming. I did not suspect anything like that but I should have. ”
“Captain we are gettin a distress call it’s from the faragut!”uhua said. “Apearently they were forced to return to our time line. They quickly called the nearest ship in the area. That was us. ”
“Mr. Checov set a course for the faragut. Mr. Sulu maximum warp.”kirk ordered. The enterprise headed to the sister ship. ”
“So let me get This staght! The klingons are attempting to tamper in the afairs of our past?”kirk asked.”yes! They seam to be targeting key officials involved in your space program!”sotril said.
“It was only matter of time before the klingons discovered time traval.”Spock said. “This could create a new cold war. “Mccoy said.
“I decided that the enterprise had to go back in time. Starfleet had been skidisheed about time traval. I myself had bean a little reluctant about time traval myself. I decided to take us back to the past. I ordered the faragut to stay in the present well our present. ”
The enterprise was able to use the Klingon method of time traval. The vessel headed back to the past.
“Apon arriving back on earth in the twenty first century. I was horrified to learn that Addison was on death row for the murders. ”
“Your lawyer is hear! A guard told her. “Lawyer ? I don’t have a lawyer!” she said. “His name is Perry cogly!” the gaourd said.
“Perry cogly?”Addison asked. “I had to think of something. Look I am getting you out of hear!”kirk said.”no not until the last possible second! Is that clear?”she said.
“I tried to follow her directive. With the situation falling apart. I decided I had to act. I did. ”
Johnson space center
Hotchner entered with Gary seven.”where have you been? “Read asked. “Mr. Seven has agreed to fully cooperate with us.”Hotchner said. “What is this all about?”j.j asked. “There is a zarden cult.it is like the Manson with a science fiction kick. They beleve that the space program is a threat to the zarden empire. In order to stop it they target those involved in the Saturn project!”Hotchner said.
“This cult must have mass hysteria. They all beleve that they are zardans?”read asked. “A cult that believes that they are aliens?”Morgan asked. “All cults beleve they are chosen usually to purify an existing religion. I don’t think this is a stretch!”read said.”they will keep killing!”jj said. “How do we stop it?” Rossi asked.
Office of director whitecomb.
“You want me to up the time table?”whitcomb said. ” yes. That way we can draw the killers out!” Hotchner said. “I’m ready to go. “Cristopher said. “So am I!”Sonya said.
The director thought it over. “We lunch in 12 hours!” whitcomb said. They all agreed.
” prison officials will not comment about the escape of death row inmate Addison mccomic. This just in. The Saturn mison will lunch I. 12 houses two days ahead of schedule. NASA will not comment on rather or not this is or is not related to the murders . some beleve it is related to the murders. ”
The zarden were watching. “They are playing with us !”a female said. “If course they are. I love it!”the leader said. They all agreed. They got ready to go. They got prepared for the last gambit. It could determine the future of humanity and the galaxy.
To be concluded.
Hotchner wanted answers. He was tired of all of the guff. He believed that something was off. He believed that was much going on he was unawahare of. He could have never guessed this. Not In a million years.
Sudenyly Gary seven pulled out a pen. Hotchner was unsure what the older man was up to. He pushed a pen.he saw some kind of doorway.
He tried to stop the elderly man. The man went inside the gateway. F.b.I agent Aaron Hotchner perused the man. He had no idea where he was going but he would let a key witnesses,Mayby even an unsub get away.
Hotchner emerged on the orther side of the vortex. He looked around. He looked out of a window. He was not in Houston any more.he seemed to be in new York. He checked his phone . the GPS said he was in New York.
“Welcome to New York agent Hotchner!” Gary said. “How is that possible?”Hotchner asked. “Are you ready for the truth agent hotner? “He said. “Give it a shot Mr. Seven!”the agent said.
“I am as human as you are! Unlike you I was not born on earth. I was born on a far off planet. I was reered on that planet. I was trained then returned hear to be there agent!”Gary said.
“Aliens! So aliens exist and your doing there biding! Let me gues this was the same aliens that crashed at Roswell?” Hotchner asked.
“No that was a different species. “Gary seven. A black cat came by. “Why should I believe This preposterous story?” Hotchner asked.
“You saw the gateway. You were in Texas.your now in new York . “he said. “Lets say your story is true.you grew up on a different planet. You returned hear why?”he asked.
“Our mission is to prepare humanity for the future. I like space travel. In 1969 my Secretary who became my wife watched the moon landing. It is not space travel I dislike but weaponizing space. I stoped an I.c.b.m test in 1968.mankind must shed his need for violence. The Saturn mission is an important step for humanity. “Gary said.
“Your mission is to prepare mankind. For what invasion?”Aaron asked. “No these aliens are benevent. They are not interested in conquest. Are you ready ? I am going to get realy fancifull ? ” Gary seven said.
“This out to be great!” Hotchner said. “This mission to Saturn is huge. It will pave the way for mankind to travel even further. Some day humanity will colonize orther planets. One-day humanity will make official first contact with orther world’s. Then humanity will create a federation of planets. Not even the sky will be the limit!”seven said.
“How do you know the future ?”he asked. “There have been temporal incursions on several occasions.I have a glimpse of the future. Lets just say the road gets bumpy but the Phoenix will rise from the ashes never to fall again !” Gary seven said.
“What does any of this have to do with the murders?” Hotchner asked. ” I am getting to that. You need to be more patient!”he told him.
“We have two dead ,Mayby more. We have a killer or killers out there. You will pardon my being anxious. “Aaron said.
“In 1878 a zardan craft crash landed on earth. They decided to stay on earth. They hoped that the empire would later anex the planet. The empire declined. They saw it as too far away. The zarden tried to stay zarden. They stayed in the shadows. They wanted to maintain the culture of the home world. “Gary seven said.
“There are aliens who have lived on earth sense the 1870’s.”hotchner said. “They are not the only ones. There have been multiple visitations planed and unplanned. ” the elderly man said. “That is a glea full thought!” hotch said. .
“One of the producers on the zerxus journey was a zarden. He hoped to introduce the future to people of the earth. “Gary seven said.
“These zarden were trying to take over the planet?”hotch asked. “Not quite. Any ways, the zarden mostly kept to themselves. There population had grown. They consider there aligience to the zarden home world first. They were peacefull. That all changed. “He said.
“How did it all change?” Hotchner asked. “They got a glimpse into the future. They saw that humanity would become a qudrent power. They would be a threat to there empire. ” Gary said.
“How did they learn about This?” Hotchner said. “Humanity discovered time traval in the year 2266. In 1966, colonel Christopher’s farther encountered a ship from the future. The zarden on the planet tried to recreate it. They saw into the future. They hoped to avoid it. Space enthusiasism weighed. NASA budget became prone to budget cuts. There is little interest in space these days. Now that is changing. Interest in space exploration seams to be back on. This is viewed as a pivotal moment. One that they seek to stop. One they feel must be stoped. They Will do anything they have to stop This. These zarden are targeting those involved in the Saturn project.” Gary said.
“Then Addison mccomic did not kill that man or any of the others!”the agent said. “No she did not. She Is from the future. She and orthers came hear to stop any plot against the Saturn mission !”Gary said.

She was stil in the white jump suit and shackled. ” hello Addison “Kirk said. “Why did you pull me out?” she asked. “Things are getting prety dicy. You were not supposed to be areststed.

Houston police headquarters
“We did not see a paturn until the youth murder. We did not tie it into the aerospace connection until later. We we’re not thinking a 20something women. We got a video of herwheilding the weapon. “Detective bridges said.
“As a person ,you think you got the right killer?” read said. “For the death of the person we caught her killing yes. The orthers I am not so sure . ” the detective said.
“Your not so sure about capital punishment?” j.j asked. “Not at all!” he said. “I see! Thank you!” hotchner said.
It took some doing but the prison warden allowed them to talk to the prisoner. The consumer’s lawyer was reluctant to allow his client to speak to the agent. Miss mccomic overulled him. She declined to have the lawyer present during the conversation.
Hotchner and Rossi were escorted to an interrogation room. They waited. They heard the sounds of rattiling chains. They knew that she was on her way. The door opened. She was surrounded by officers.
She wore the white jump suit. She was shackled from head to toe. She sat down. The officers left except for one who stood guard.
“Thank you for meeting with us!” Rossi said. “Well why not? I have nothing else to do. ” Addison said. “Of course!”Aaron said.
“You were convicted so you might as well come clean with all of this. Are you guilty of all of the killings?” Rossi asked. “Yes I am. I did them all. “She said. “Why?”Hotchner said. “I was am very!”she said. “What were you angry about ?”Aaron asked. “Poverty! Exploration by one percent!” she said. “Your opposed to space exploration?”Aaron said. “No money for social security but mony for useless programs like space exploration !”she said.
“You acted alone?” Rossi asked.”yes I did. “She said. “Where did you get the weapon?” Aaron asked. “That selling site! “She proclaimed. ” I see !” rossi said.
“She may have killed the victim she was caught near. I don’t think she killed the others” rossi said. “I agree ! I don’t know why she is not telling the truth. “Hotcher said. “She does not have a lot of time to come clean!” Rossi said.
Johnson space center
Hotchner and Rossi returned to the area that had turned into there staging area. Hotchner saw a man He did not recognize.
“Garet Roberts central intelligence agency. We need to talk!” the man said. Hotchner and Roberts went into an office
“Agent Hotchner! I know you have been speaking to Mr. Seven. I need you back off on him. ” Roberts said.
“Why is that?” hotchner said. “Gary seven is not a killer or a terrorist. I assure you of that. “The c.I.a agent said.
“Who is he?” Rossi asked. “Look In 1968, he stoped a Chain of events that could have destroyed the world. He saved my farther,life while he was in the Sudan during a humanitarian mission. Trust me he is not a killer. ” roberts said.
“Are you hear on your own or are you hear on bahath of the agency ?”Hotchner asked. “He is not your man!” Roberts assures him.
Hotchner went back to the group. “What was that about?” jj asked. “He is c.I.a? He claims that Gary seven is a world humanitarian and would never commit such a crime.” hotch said. “You believe him?”Derek asked. “I don’t know. ” hotch answered.
” a friend of yours appeared on your behath. Garet Roberts!”Rossi said. “Good guy!” seven said. “You don’t like space exploration do you?” Rossi asked. “Space exploration yes. Space baised weapons !no! ” he said.
“You fit the profile. “Hotch said. “I am not a blade wielding killer. “Seven said. “You have not been very forth coming. “Hotchner said. “I was under the impresson that the burden of proof is on the sate. “He said. “Why are you stone walling?”Rossi asked. “I know the truth. I believe that good overcomes evil. Good wins out in the end!” he said. “I wish I shared your optimism.” Rossi said.

Johnson’s space center
“The pakege’s return adress was zardan!”hotchner said. “The unsub has gone from sword to bomb!”rosi said. “The unsub is not acting like a serial killer.. this is a terorest act!”jj said.
“The zarden are woriers. They have an hournor code but they are very pragmatic. They believe in wining!”read said. “Mayby this is terorism as in terror. What if colnel cristopher is the target?” Read asked.
“They want to instil teror into the colnel!”rossi commented. “Why the colnel?”hotch asked. “If the unsub believes he is a zarden,he could see thr colnel as a threat. Maybe he believe the saturn mission will lead to humanity making aliences with friendly alien races. “Read said.
“Could we be deeling with someone with emotional problems. He is esaping though science fiction. For whatever reason he has chosen the.zarden as how he deal with it!”rossi sugested.
“What if it is not one person? A.cult a group?”morgan.sugested. ” science fiction has a cult following ,a real cult is not a sterech!”Hotch said. Morgan phone rang. “Talk to me baby girl!”darek said.
“The weapon used to kill the astronaut was a ceremonial blade used in the show. This is the weird part,the weapon does not exist. It is a prop. The weapon does not exist in real life. Yet the cause of deaths totally consistent with the weapon called a bugle. ” she said.
“Your sure?”darek asked. “I can’t make that up my chocolate bunny! “She told him. “No I am sure you cannot thanks!”he said. The call ended.
“The murder weapon on the first victim is consistent with a weapon used on the show. This is the actual weapon. One that does exist.” Derek said.
“This is really odd.”jj said. “Ok Dave your with me. The police have picked up the mystery man in the lobby. “Hotchner said.
Houston police department
“You seam to be a ghost?”Rossi said. “I keep a low profile!” the mystery man said. “You have no social security number,no selective service registration,no voter record,nothing. It is like you don’t exist!” Rossi said.
“Why am I hear? “The older man asked. “You steamed eager to speak to colonel Christopher.now one of his crewmembers is dead. I hardly think it Is a coincidence. “Rosi said.
“Nothing is ever a coincidence agent Rossi. It is just that we fail to see the paturn or we refuse to see it!” the suspect said.
“Who are you?”hotchner asked.”my name is Gary seven.I live in New York!”he Saud.
“What us your occupation?”hotchner asked. “I was a business man. I am retired. I imported items from overseas. ” the man answered.
“Why were you so interested in speaking to the colonel?”rossi asked.”I am a space enthusiast I wanted his autograph!”he answered in a some what snarky tone. “Come on you don’t expect us to believe that?”rossi retorted. “Believe what you will!”he said.
“Look pal. Your the prime suspect in a brutal murder!”rossi commented.”all murder is brutal. It is taking something no man has a right to take. It is the ultimate theft one man enjoys stealing!”Gary said.
“Did you kill him?”Rossi said”no if course not. I am a man of peace. “Gary responded. “You sound like a guilty man Mr. Seven!” Rossi said.”we are all guilty of something agent rossi! It is all a matter of degrees!”the suspect remarked.
“That is not assuring !”hotchner said. “No I am certain it is not! “Gary said.
Hotchner got a call on his cell. He excused himself and went outside. “Hotchner!” he said. “Its Garcia! “She said. “What do you got?”Aaron asked. “I found a similar case. I should say cases. The attacks are similar to several. It matches the cases Addison mccomic was convicted of!” she said. “The one about to be executed by lethal injection this week!”he said. “You got it. Either we are dealing with a copy cat or they got the wrong person !”she said.
