The object got pass the tholuen ships . it now headed out of Gorn space. It could successfully take on the Gorn fleet.at least it was confident it could. That was not there mission. It had a different one.
“Captains log, the enterprise is heading back to star base 12 for the annual admiral’s banquet. Were it not for the microbe crises,the enterprise would be on the outtor rim but sense we were in the area star fleet thought I should attend. ”
“You sure you can’t acidently short out the engines just for a few hours?”Addison asked. “Let me get this straight,you want me to be negligent on purpose ans risk my engines so you can skip the banquet?”chief enginer pitcarin said.”not when you put it like that Neal! ” Addison said.
“I don’t know. I think that would be interesting. Mingiling with the delete of star fleet. Get to puc there brain.hear there stories. “Yeoman Smith said.
“I have. Heard There stories over and over. It loses it’s appeal. Your welcome to go in my stead myia. ” addison told her. “It is not that bad!”sotril said.
“If I had the choice between attending the banquet and taking on the anipovnoids,Klingon,Romulan,nazaka,Gorn,tholien’s ,Khan and Alison I know witch one I am picking!”Addison said.
“Ryian. Commadore Wesley wants to meet with you. “Com officer Audrey Palmer informed lt. Hendricks. “Me?what about?”he asked. “That I don’t know. It seams that it is optional. “She said. “I am curious. I will meat with him.”Ryian said. “I Will send it to him. “The com officer said.
Ryian had no idea what this was about. He wanted to take the meeting just to find out. He did not have any idea what it was about.
“Addison I just got the daily security briefing. I uploaded it to a hand held for you!”Palmer said. “Thank you I Will look it over.”She said. She picked it up. She went back to The com and chair and looked it over.
The object got pass Gorn space. It avoided the Gorn patrol ships. It had traversed Gorn space. The object was now in a remote area. It was largely non aligned. It had a plan. It was following a path it created. It was on course.
“Now entering orbit!”dasale reported.”I gues it us too late to turn back now. Where is a raid by a rogue Klingon commander trying to prove himself when you need it. “Adiison said .
“Sometimes your thought process really troubles me!”Dr. Mark piper said. Addison smiled.”just go to one of those and you will understand!”Addison said. “I’m good!”He said. “I figured!”Addison responded.
Addison gave the order to assume a standered orbit. Ryian and dasale took the ship to an orbit. There was no going back now until it was over.
“Now in orbit!”Ryian reported .”great. I am so looking forward to this!” Addison said .”we can tell!”danner said.
“Ah! Ryian come in!”Commodore Robert Wesley said. Lt. Hendricks Sat down .”can I get you anything? “The Commodore asked. “No I’m fine sir!”he said .”your probably curious as to why I asked to see you.”Bob remarked.
“Yes sir I am. It was unexpected.” Ryian responded. “Of course. Well my first officer just got named the new commander of the hood. The helm officer is going to take over as exo. Now I need a senior helm officer . I got to observe you when I briefly commanded the enterprise during the crises. I would like to offer you the position. It would not just be a promotion to head helmsman but also a promotion to lt. Commander and you will be third in command.”Wesley told him.
“Is this a would you consider taking it if offered or is this a serious offer?”Ryian asked “I want you! You have first reversal. If you want the job it’s yours. “The Commodore asked.
“I appreciate the offer but this is not a good time for a move like This. “Ryian said. “I understand. Look you have a promising career your self apart from Addison. “Wesley said.
“I understand that.this does not seam like a good Tim’s for such a change.”Ryian said.
“I don’t need an answer right now. Think it over and get back to me. ” he said .”alright I will. “Ryian said.”good!”he responded.
The Commodore had a reputation for trying to steal officers from orther ships. As a Commodore he had an advantage over captains. Ryian knew about this reputation.
Ryian’s daughter was Stil a baby.sarek was two. He wanted to be with them. He wanted to be with Addison. They say you should never make a decision when your upset . he suspected the Commodore made This offer because of the situation. He did not begrudge the Commodore but he wished He had not made it right now.
Adison got dressed in the green dress uniform and spent a lot of time styling her hair.”for someone who claim to be dreading this,you spent a lot of time preparing for it!”Liz observed.
“I have to be there so why not. You know me and getting dolled up!”Addison said. “As does the whole galaxy !”Liz reaplied. “So how will you occupy your time While the enterprise is mored at the base?”addy asked. “I have a date with Vincent!”she asked.
“Realy? The same lt Vincent dasale who referred to you as a walking freezer unit?” Addison asked.
“Well no one is perfect?”Liz said. “I hope it goes well.”Addison said. “Me too. It has been a while sence I have been on a date. I am out of practice!”Liz said.”well just be yourself,well be yourself without the endless psycho Babel!”she said.
“I don’t engage in endless psycho Babel ! Do I?”Liz asked .”a little bit. “Oh. I will try not to. ” Liz said.
“Alright! I am sure it will go well!”Addison said. ” speaking of love life,how are things with you and Ryian?”Liz asked. “Alright. “She said.
“Addy I know you can’t remember your life with him but he can.”Liz said. “I have no memory of any of it. Its like it never happened.I have no frame of reference” Addison said.”create one !”Liz said. “I need to catch my breath Liz. “Addison told her.”ok!”she said.
They walked to the transporter room. The door opened,
Previously on star trek the universe.
After answering a distress call,the enterprise female are infected with a microbe that causes female to be suspectible to suggestions. All accept for the captain and first officer.
The crew is able to thaw the plot. Those affected are placed in isolation. They are able to get to ab area just outside federation space in order to find a cure,captains economic memories of her and ryian are erased. A cure was found but the memories were unrecoverable.
Dr. Danner crash landed on a planet. She met a young child named Miranda. After being rescured Liz considered adopting her. While Dr. Mcbanga discovered that she is the sister of Addison mccomic.
There were reports of unexplained super nova. There were reports of unidentified probe ot object in the area.
And now tonight’s episode.
“Hey Vincent !”Liz said .”look I’m sorry about advocating abandoning you and the orthers.it was cold and callous. I was not thinking with my head or heart. Servival is not everyone!”dassale said.
“I am glad to hear you say that. That is not what this is about. “Dr. Danner said. The senior helm officer was quite puzzled. “Its not?”he asked.
“The enterprise is going to be at s.b12 during the admiral’s banquet so I was wondering do you want to go out? There is a bolien restaurant on the base. “She asked.
“Your asking me on a date?”the helm officer asked. “Yes I am lt!”she said. “Is this some kind of trap ?”dasale asked. “No it is not. If you don’t want to I will understand !”Liz said.
“No sounds fun. I would love to doctor!”he said. “I look forward to it. “She said . he was still confused.”as do I!”he said .
Quarters of the mccomic
“Ryian I am going to sleep out in the living room!” Addison said. “I wish you would stay!”ryian said. “I don’t feel comfortable being hear. I’m sorry. “Addison said. “Alright. If you want the bed room I can sleep on the couch!”ryian said. ” no this room is disconcerting. It shows a life I can’t remember. “Addison told him. She then left.
Ryian found he could not sleep. He tried to be strong. It was diccult to it seemed that this was the new normal. When she was infected with the microbe he feared he would never get her back. This was worse then he ever feared possible.
Before this ,everything made sense. He had a carer a wife, children,life was good. Now that all changed. He was lost,directionless,uncertain. He had no idea how to get back on tract.
“I have located the object. “A tholien said. “Plot an intercept at once!”commander toscair ordered. The task force headed for the unknown object. “On course!”the pilot said.
The object was warned of the task force. The object adjusted it’s course. It matched there intercept course with one of it’s own.
“Object is heading for us!” the tholien officer said. The object headed for The tholien ships.
The object got off the first shot.one of the ship was damaged .the rest of the fleet tried to surround the hostile.
The object anticipated the tholien’s actions and took the appropriate steps to stop it and counter it. The object fired on the ships necessary to generate the tholien web.
The object started to withdraw. At least that was what it appeared. The object generated it’s own web like pulse.
The object fired the pulse.the pulse exploded. The ships were crippled. The ships started to drift. The object fired again. The fleet was utterly destroyed.
The object resumed it’s previous course. The object was not at it’s destination. The ship was heading that way.
End of part one.
“Commadore’s log,sometimes in space,you go from one from one crises to another. The hendrini microbe has been neutralized. Now we are facing another threat ,this time from the romulins. “Wesley said.
“We are now in weapons range !”the pilot reported. “Once we are in weapons range order our ships to break in and attack.let’s take those ships out!”the female commander ordered.
The Bird of preys backed off. The vessels went for the cylinders. “They are trying To go for the cylinder!”Tim Mathews reported. “Stay on um!”Wesley ordered.
The enterprise and the other ships tried to block the enemy ships from getting to the quarantine pods. Ryian fired phasers and photon torpedoes hit the closest rihansu ships.
The Lexington followed suit and hit another ship. The rest of the fleet did the same.
“They really care about those cylinders!”the pilot commented.”humans care about every life. They would gladly risk one hundred lives to save one. I don’t get this but it how they do thing’s. It will be there downfall. “The commander declared.
A few minutes before the battle,Addison had returned to the ship. Addison watched the battle from her quarters. She decided she could not sit on the side lines.maybe mark had not cleared her for duty but she was still the captain. She put on her uniform and left the quarters. The door closed behind her.
The enterprise created a wall between the romulsn vessel and the cylinder. The enterprise fired phasers and photon torpedoes at The enemy vessels.
The romulan vessels returned fire on the enterprise. “Shields holding!”dassale said. The federation vessels continued to pound on the enemy ships .
The turbo lift opened,Addison entered Waring the ditty uniform. The crew was surprised to see her. She went over to the command chair. “Get out of my chair Bob!” Addison told the Commodore.
The commadore smiled and got up from the command chair. “Of course Addison! Captain !”he said. Addison smiled and sat down. “Fire a warning schot across the bow of the cylinder!”Addison ordered. “Sir?”dassale asked. “Trust me Vincent! Do it!”she said.
The enterprise fired on the cylinder. The ship intentionally missed the target. “They fired on there own vehicle !”the weapons officer observed. “Its a message from there captain.he is telling us that he is willing to destroy there own craft in order to deny us a victory.”charvineck said.
“You think that they will really do it? This is a bluf it has to be?” tal commented. “Don’t be so sure tall! I am not. These humans are cagy! They are iratic,unpredictable !”the commander said.
The romulan command ship fired on the enterprise. The enterprise hit back on the vessel. The turbo lift opened, sotril and doctor dahner entered the bridge.
The Vulcan female went to the science station. Tim turned around and saw the first officer,science officer and his wife. “I suppose you want your station back?”Tim asked.”in fact I do!”she said. “Very well dear!”he said. He got up. She Sat down.
She scanned the ship and seroundings. “Adison I have an idea!”the Vulcan said. “I am not surprised. What do you got ?”Addison asked.
Sotril informed the captain of her plan. Addison gave the go ahead.the enterprise emitted a pulse that weekoned the enemy shield. The other ships fired with conventional weapons.
The enterprise fired a full voley of phasers on the command ship. The command ship was hit. “We are being hailed!”the com officer. “On screen!”the commander ordered.
“Commander! I don’t give up! I don’t yield. I don’t surrender. I see you as similar. You might be my counterpart in the empire. Know that with the same energy you will use to overpower me,I will use that energy to stop you.” Addison said.
The enterprise and the orther ships continued to pound the enemy. They used every weapon they had. This was a demonstration by Addison not just of the power but the determination to fight them. The federation ships kept going. They kept firering.
There was a series of exchanges between the two sides.the battle got more and more fierce. The federation fleet started to gain the uper hand.
The commander began to see that this was not the day. She did not have the promise of reinforcements. This would only end badly. “Withdraw!”the commander ordered.
“Commander?”the pilot asked.”do it. Know this star fleet commander,this is not over.we will meet again ! I won’t be as easy to overcome!”the commander declared.
“The vessels are backing off. ” the Vulcan science officer reported. “Do we peruse?”dassale asked.”negative. We need to luck our own wounds besides I think they learned there lesson for now. “Adiison said.
Liz went over to helm officer dassale. “Hello Liz!”dassale Said nervously. “I heard you wanted to leave me behind. ” she asked him. “You heard about that. “He said. “Yes I did “she said .”you have to consider the context . “he said .”I understand !”she Said. Then she walked off.
“Captains log the surgeon general’s office has certified the enterprise and crew clear of the microbe. The enterprise has been certified ready for duty. We are preparing to move out. ”
Qurters of Addison mcomic
Adison and Ryan were in bed. It had been strange between the two sense her memory was erased. They were roommate more them a married couple.
“I am going to sleep in the living room.”Addison said. “Ok!”Ryan said.she got up to leave.”I love you ad!”Ryan said.”yea!”was all she said in response. The door closed.
This ended a bit on a sad note.I do love happy endings but this is not really the end. Star trek the universe is in many ways a story arc like Babylon five or deep space 9.although unlike b5 I have written the ending yet nor do u know where it us heading although I have a few ideas.I do want to explore anipovnouds Khan and Alison. 50 and 6o’s tv had a story warped up by the end of the hour. Sometimes maker events were ignored in future instalments or even contradicted. Ronald d more Said that every action has consequences. I want to explore those consequences.
Addison began to wake up. Once she woke up,she immediately started shouting pro Hendriini rhetoric.
“It happened almost instantly. She woke up and tried to take over the ships. She was trapped behind the force field!”the male nurse told McCoy.
“Has it yielded any meaningful information?”Piper said. “It has. I have a few theories on how to stop this thing.”mccoy said.”I hope so. “Piper said.
Dr. McCoy went over to sotril.”commander I was hooping you would look over it. “The doctor said to sotril. “I have nothing else pressing. I will look it over.”she told him.
“Very good!”McCoy said. “Nothing will work commanders .any attempt to thawt us will fail!”Addison said. She was sedated.
She looked it over. “Fascinating! I believe it does have merit. I wish I could do it but given my condition I cannot.I believe you are on the right tract as the expression goes. “She said .
“Mind meld?”Farris asked. “Yes sir a Vulcan male would try to scan the microbe and find a way to attack it. I believe we can force it out or destroy it!” Dr. McCoy said.
“Mind melds are extremely taxing . there are a lot of patients ?”Commodore Wesley asked. “It is an iasue. First we need to ascertain if it can work. “Dr. Piper said.
“You can assure me that there will be no alteration with memories?”Farris asked.”yes absolutely sir!”McCoy said . “I had to check. “The bureaucrat told the doctor. “Of course sir. ” the doctor replied.
“There is a Vulcan aboard the Lexington. I can arrange for him to come abored. “Wesley said. “That would be much appreciated sir!”McCoy said. “I will make the arrangements. “Wesley said. “I want good notes taken. I will wish to look them over!”Farris told them.”agreed!”Dr. McCoy said.
A transporter beam emerged in the corridor of the cylinder. The Vulcan man walked over to the doctors.”Dr. McCoy?”the male asked. “Yes I am McCoy! “The man said.
“I am lt. Commander ston. “He said. “Have you been versed on what we need to do?”Dr. McCoy asked. “Yes I have. I am ready when you are. “He said.
The Vulcan officer followed the team to the force field.a secondary field was set up before the orther field was disapated. The man entered.
“Vulcans? You think you can stop us,?”the captain under the influence of the microbe said.he said nothing in response. He took out his hand. She tried to move away. He gained the super hand.
“My mind to your mind! My thoughts to your thoughts ! “The Vulcan said. The Vulcan found himself in another place. He saw memories.he presumed that it was from the commander.
He found a kind of doorway. He went though it. He found a white room. He saw a human. It looked like admiral komack. He believed it might be the microbe.
“You do not belong hear!”ston said.”we are the future. We are beginning to expand.”the “admiral”said. The Vulcan took his hand to the image. The admiral tried to fight back. The Vulcan did not relent. The admiral refused to give up but neither did the officer.
Ston gained the uper hand. He began a mind meld. “I am detecting some movement within the microbes. Whatever he is doing he is on the right track. “Piper said. “Vulcans ! They are efficient but can be dawn annoying at Times.”Dr. McCoy said. Dr. Piper did not say anything. He did chuckle a bit.
The Vulcan continued to attack the microbe. The microbe attacked him. He did not stop. He struck the image with his mind.
“I believe I have found the pulse. “The nurse said. “Can you generate it?”piper asked. “Yes I can!”the nurse said in response.
The Vulcan held his ground. He telepathically sent the pulse to the creature. The admiral started to shrink. The image exploded.
“The microbe is gone! “The nurse said. “Are you sure there are no traces of the microbe?” piper asked. “The microbe is gone! I can confirm that. ” the nurse said.
Ston ended the link. He woke up. Then Addison woke up. “Addison ! How are you feeling ?”piper said.”better Mark. More like myself.”she told him. “The microbe is gone!”McCoy told her. “Can you beat this thing with all the crew?”Addison said. “Yes we can .”McCoy told her. “Get on it !” Addison ordered. “Yes sir!”they said.
“We can generate the pulse !”a tech said.”Lets get on it! Addison we may be on the verge of resolving the crises!” Mark told her. She smiled.
The medical staf on the container got right to work. They worked to generate the pulse would incompacitate the microbe.
“Ryan ! Adison has been cleansed of the mucrobe!”lt. Kyile in command said. “Permison to go to the detox chamber?’ryan asked.”permission granted. Go!”Kyle said. “Thank you sir!” he said.
He emerged on the detox cylinder. He went to see Addison. He was going to hug her. She backed away.”I know we are married. I have the knowledge but not the memories. I don’t remember the emotions I felt. “Adison said.
She seemed different. She was colder. “I see! I am glad your ok! You gave me quite a scare. “He told her. “I am glad to have it gone. “She told him.
There relationship was different. She was not his Addison.She was not the Addison he remembered.it worried him. Would he ever really get her back?
“I should probably get back to the enterprise.”he said. “Of course. “She said. “I love you!”ryan said.”yea “was all she said in response. The door closed.
“The female crew is mostly cured of the microbes.”Leslie said.”very good. Soon we can get out of hear and hopefully get back to normal !”Wesley said. “Is there such a thing as normal when it comes to deep space exploration?”gioto asked. The Commodore laughed. “True!” he said.
“Comadore we have incoming! Detecting three vessels.they are romulin vessels . bird of preys. “Tim said.
“Warn them off Mr.Leslie !”Wesley ordered “sending!”the acting com officer informed him. “They are not responding!” leslie said.”big surprise!” the Commodore said.
“They are heading right for us they are weapons hot”Tim Mathews reported.”red alert! All crew to battle stations! ” the Commodore ordered.
“The cylinders do not have shields or weapons!”Galloway commented.”I know that lt. How many are stil there?”the Commodore asked. “I detect 59 life forms in all stil there?”Tim said. “Dawn it!” Wesley said .
“They are sitting ducks !” dassale said.”I know. ” the Commodore said the romulan vessel got near the federation ship.the starship fired preemptively at the warship.the battle had begun.
To be concluded.
I enjoy having Bob Wesley interact with security chief gioto. In the original series they were both played by bary Russo.
Ston was the Vulcan tpring. Perfered over Spock in “a mock time” he was played by Lawrence lemontahne. Apearently in this time line he joined star fleet.
I considered having Spock or symbol be the one to administer the meld. I am not ready for that. I do want to bring Spock into the “universe” storyline. At some point maybe sybok.
“Medical log,Dr. Mark piper reporting.being a medical officer on a deep space mission is difficult at times. My job is to overse the health and wel being of the crew. Sometimes that means deeling with pathogen I have never even imagined. ”
“As I deal with this microbe,I feel that this is one of those times. While they say it is lonely at the top.it is defiantly lonely at the top of the medical field of the enterprise. ” piper said.
“The only way to save the female crew of the enterprise is to remove her memories of her relationship with her husband. There is no clear evidence that this will yield any result. ”
“We are almost ready. “Dr. Mcbanga said “ok. “Addison said. She hugged ryian. “Ry! I wrote you some letters. Don’t read them now but when times get tough. Read um ok. Not matter what happens never forget this Addison !”she said.
“I won’t addy!” ryian said. “I love you ry!”she said. “I love you addy!”he said. They kissed.
Then they prepped her for surgery .they wheeled her into a room that they had turned into a surgery room.
Farris and Wesley saw Addison being wheeled into the magshift o.r.”they sent you Bob? I was hoping for Matt Decker?”she said.”I will try to keep your office in one peace!”Wesley said. “Gosh! I am worried!”she said. He laughed.
She was wheeled into the o.r. “alright! Jubulio I want you to monitor her brain and the microbe. Report any change!”McCoy said.”you got it Len!”mcbanga said.”alright let’s do this and God helps us!”piper said.
Addison began to fall asleep. She started to drift. The medical team started to access her memories.
She found self at Starfleet academy.she remembered was a memory. She walked into a dorm room. She went inside.
She saw ryian.this was the day she met him. She rode him hard that day. Neither one liked the orther for quite a while.
“I have isolated the memory.”Dr. Piper said. “Lets hope this is not for naught!”McCoy said. He gave the order to eraise the memory.
The event went as it had before. Just as she remembered it. Then she saw hum start to vanish.”what’s going on? Intruder alert! ” Addison said. Then he was gone.
“Dr. This is odd! When you removed the memory,the microbes showed clear signs of agitation. “Mcbanga said. “Keep a close eye on it!”Mark said.
They then went to the next menory. “Sir! May I speak freely?”Ryan asked. “Procede!”addison said.”what is your problem with me? I work hard. I stic to business. I have gotten good feedback from faculty and other cadet commanders yet you will never let up!”ryian said.
“I don’t understand why you are hear. Your from privledge although most everyone in the federation are. I have had to earn everything I had. I resent you!”Addison said.
“Look we are eaquil in the eyes of our superiors. We have the same opportunity. You are in a position of leadership in the core of cadets. Why is not room for me to do the same ?”he asked.
“I won’t coddle anyone cadet. “She said.”that is not what I want sir. I want to be treated like any orther cadet. No better but no worse.”Ryian said.
She began to realize that this was a memory. She wondered how that Addison would feel about her future decisions. Would she be surprised or even outraged? She had no idea.
Sudenly there was a large storm.the storm came at them.she yelled at Ryan. The cloud hit Ryan. It vanished. She yelled. Then she had no idea what had just occured.she had forgotten all about it.
“There it was again. “Mcbanga said “have the computer scan the event. See if the computer can find anything that might help fight it!”Dr. McCoy told him.he agreed.
Then another memory was displayed.”cadet Hendricks.congradulations on your completion of your first year.”Addison said.”thank you sir! I understand you gave me a favorable review ?”Ryan said.”you earned it cadet. I may have been harsh on you. I was sceptical of you but I may have musjudged you.”Addison said.”may have?”he asked.
She started to laugh. It was the first time she has ever laughed at him.he did not think he ever saw her smile. He wondered if she was capable of smiling.
Sudenly she saw the shock wave. She conjured up a . she fired on the. Schock wave. It was to avail. The phaser hit the wave but it had no impact. She forgot why she had fired it.
It was during his sophomore year.it was her junior year. She saw him at an unofficial game of capture the flag. There was Ryan. He snapped to attention. “Relax ry we are off duty!”Addison told her. “Of course lt!”Ryan said. “Ry! Call me daddy off duty!”she said. “Very well!”he said.
This time it was not a shock wave. It was like some kind of disintigation. She watched in horror as he vanished.then she forgot why he dissapered or that he had ever was there.
The next memory Ryan tried to catch up with her.”addy will you be my date at the dance?”Ryan asked. “Realy I thought you hated me?”she asked. “I thought that about you! If this is improper I will withdraw it. “He said. “No i would love to!”she said. “Realy? That’s great!”Ryan said.
Somehow she knew what was coming next. She knew this memory would be destroyed just like the rest. Sure enough the wave took it out just like the orthers.
When she woke up. She was just like the others. She was under the effect of the microbes.
Dr. McCoy and piper looked over the data. After carefull examination they believe that they found the answer.
“Commissioner I believe we have a counter agent. Your not going to like it. “Dr. Piper said.”what is it”Farris asked. “Alright! What is it ?”the official asked. “The microbe only affects body that are susceptible to suggestion. Those not involved in a romantic relationship. “Piper said.
“If we were to implant memories of romance we could flush out the creatures. ” Dr. McCoy said.
“Wait a minute! Any mind alteration is strictly forbidden under earth law,federation law and intergalactic treaties. “Faris said.
“Can’t we get a waver. This Is an extreme situation!” piper said.”this would be a bad precident. Once this pendoras box is opened it might never be closed. I’m sorry. You will have to come up with another answer. “Farris said.
Office of the commander .
“You want to attack the enterprise?”admiral asked. “They a sitting duck! “She said . “this will be considered an act of war. “Terok said .”the destruction of the flagship of the federation would be a huge morale booster. Do not deny me this chance. “She said.
“I will not authorize it. Will not stop you. If you fail your on your own!”the admiral said.
End of part five
This is inspired by the movie “sunshine of a spotless mind”
“Medical report,Dr. Mark piper reporting . the medical team led by Dr. McCoy is continuing to study the patcient. So far there has not been a major breakthrough. I am getting a bit restless. I understand that this will require a pain staking process but it is stil difficult!.
“As chief medical officer I oversee the health and well being of the crew. I take this task very seriously.”
Detox chamber one.
Dr. McCoy looked over all the records. He looked and looked. He compared the data he had.
He came up with an idea. It was not a cure but it might help them find one. He knew that it would be controversial with the chief medical officer. He thought it had a shot at working.
“The uss Lexington and three other vessels are on there way. Please brief Commodore Wesley and comisonor Farris!”admiral komack said. “Farris is coming hear?”the security chief in command said. “Yes and he wants a full report. As you know there seams to be something going with the romulon so stay on your toes. ” the admiral said.”I will sir!”he assured him.
“I want you to know we are all rooting for Addison and the crew.Manny of them have served under me. “The admiral told him.
“That means a lot sir. We are as well!”the commander said.
“You wanted to see me ?”piper asked.”ah yes Mark please come in! “The doctor said. He came and Sat down in the mag sift office. “Mark. I have an idea but your not going to like it. I do not like it myself. “McCoy said.
“Alrght Leonard. Schoot?” the older doctor said. “I want to study the affects of the microbe on a human host. I want to manipulate captain mccomics’s mind . I want to see what would happen if I eraise all memories of lt. Hendricks. See if I can monitor the brain. Find a way to counteract it. ” Dr. McCoy said.
“You want to make her susceptible to the microbe. “Dr. Piper commented. “I want to find out why feamles sucomb to this microbe. If there is a marker of some kind,I might be able to counter act it or surpass it.”McCoy said.
“You cant be serious Len! You want to eraise her memories! You don’t know what effect it Will have on you. You don’t know if anything will come of it. This is a guess! “Piper said.
“I need to know why her relationship to her husband blocked the microbe’s effect. I need to understand this creature and how it’s works. “Dr. McCoy said.
“What if nothing comes of this. If it all comes to naught. She loses her memories for nothing. You don’t know how it will change her personality. Your trying to play God.”piper said.
“No Mark they are playing God! I am trying to even the scales. This is a warfare Mark.we win the war by fighting it. “McCoy said.
“Where is your humanity Len? Your not the only person who has had there heart broken! You don’t have to make everyone as miserable as you! “Piper said.
“You think that is what this is about? I am doing this because itus the only option. “McCoy said.
“Look I have never seen anyone as in love as those too. I understand the extreme nature of these microbe. This seams way out of the mainstream. “Piper said.
