Lt .bolt told miss mccomic to make herself at home. She did not mean hover over her on the bridge.the bridge was cramped as it were. It was worse with Addison.Addison was a star fleet officer even commanded a star ship before a nervous breakdown.this was like old home day for her. She was fine with that not on her bridge.
“Mia we are nearing the task force.”the Orion halak reported.”take us out of warp.”mia ordered. “Is that the enterprise? She looks damaged!”Addison observed.”she was involved in a battle with ships loyal to the one true path. “The lt said. “Even after a beating she is stil a force to be reckoned with!”the Orion said. “Piloting the Athena is not halak’s day job. He is the chief enginer of the enterprise!”mis said.
“Now everything makes sense. ” Addison said. “Signal from enterprise ,miss mccomic may bored at her leisure.”the com officer said. “Miss?”Addison said.”your not in star fleet any more!”Liz said.”I know that !”Addison said.
“So what is your relationship with Dr.obk?”yeoman Smith asked. Everyone wanted to know but no one dared to ask but the yeoman. “We were married. Unfortunately It did not last long. She disliked the Klingon expansion policy but when the war begin she returned to the empire. She helped her people wage war on us. ” lt. Commander Aaron jeshop said.
“Do I detect some bitterness in your voice commander?”Dr. Mark pipper asked. “Mayby a little!”he said.
“Look jess when Dr. Obj comes on bored. I would like her to be fashonibly late for the briefing.until after mis mccomic has given her report!”commander Ben Norris said.”understood !”jes said.
They neared the transporter room. The door opened. The team entered the transporter room. “Sir! They are ready to come on bored!”lt. Kyile the officer at the transporter controls informed the commander.”energize Mr. Kyile!” commander Norris ordered.
The officer activated the control. The transporter both powered up.a series of particle was transformed into human form.
“Addison mccomic I am commander Ben Norris acting commanding officer. “He said.
“What happened to your predasesor?”Addison asked. “Captain Conklin was killed in a battle with o.t.p. star fleet has yet to name an official replacement!”Norris said. “I see. Are you in The running?”she asked.”I am not sure.I don’t keep up with such things!”he commented
“I would like to get your report if your ready!”Norris said. “You bet.no time like the present. “Addison said.
At the table was the acting captain, Dr. Piper,lt commander halak ,security chief gioto,lt.bolt,science officer Spock and dahner. Addison began her brefing. “During my time in star fleet actually while I commanded the enterprise we were trailing an Orion convoy.they claim to be part of an effort to colonize a planet in the prosser sector. We believed they were shipping weapons on. Bahath of the anipivnoids. “She said.
“I cannot get a scan. We are being blocked. “Science officer said. “Why am I not surprised?”Addison commented. She ordered the ship to remain on course for the convoy.
The lead ship fired on a nearby nebula.the nabula hit the enterprise.
The ship was hit. Addison was knocked unconscious. “While I was knocked out,I saw things. Things I did not quite understand.some I still do not understand!”Addison said.
She saw space. She saw the galaxy known to the federation. She saw world’s she recognized.she saw earth,Vulcan .andor and teller.she then saw multiple other world’s many that were hostile to the federation. Then she saw a smal dot. She felt compelled to it. She ran to it.
She ran inside to the object. She saw another realm perhaps. “It was the mass. Perhaps another dimension. Mayby it is home realm of the mass. Maybe the mass. I don’t know. I was in touch with it. Some how I was cut off. I could not function after.you know the rest.”she said.
“Were you in contact with the mass?”the security chief asked.”I haven’t the foggiest chief?”She responded. “It could have bean a promotion caused the intersection of the photons and the nebula. It could have the mass!”lt. Spock said.
“This event caused something that mimicked a psicoses or was !”Dr. Piper said. “Perhaps that is the nature of the mass .there are creature that cause psicoruc behavior in humanoids.”Spock said.
Addison did not like having her psyke analyzed. She had been a rising star in star fleet . compared with archer ,Hernandez ,garf,April komack and others. She hated being reminded that was over. She knew that that was true but did not like being hit over the head with constant reminders.
The door opened,Dr. Obk entered. Lt. Commander jeshop was following her. They both Sat down. “Uh doctor obk,good!”the acting captain said.
“We have looked over the sansor data you sent us regarding the mass. Would you explained what occurred from your perspective?”Spock asked.
“The mass appeared to have come out of no where. It originated from somewhere else. It began in a remote area. It expanded into Klingon space and into Rihansu space. “Obk said.
“There was no warning!”the security chief said. “There was a minor energy reeding before the dot appeared. About 20 seconds before. “Terisha said.
“Do you have any idea what this is?”the Orion engineer asked. “I cannot prove it but I suspect it is a life form.. I believe it is a plant. I cannot prove it. I do not beleve that this is an invasion in military terms.”Terisha said.
“You suspect it’s arival is an accident?”halak asked. “That is my suspicion commander!”she told the Orion. “If this is a fluke,there must have bean a catyilist!” Dr. Piper commented.
“If this is not a military issue,convincing the Klingon of that could be dificult. “The sicurity commander said. “That is an understatement commander. “The Klingon scientist commented.
” we are attempting to speak to The Klingon empire.they are not returning our hails. “Jeshop said. “I am not surprised. They can be stubborn !”she said. “I want to remain in the area. We will be scanning the area for any clue to solving this we hope that the empire will ask us for that.”Norris said. “We want to help the Klingon.”Dr. Piper said. “We want to help all species. We are hear to promote good repetitions with all races,even those we have been at of a with in the past!”Norris said. “I !”Piper said.
Norris then dismissed The meeting. The officers and other atendies got up from the dask. Some excited The conference room while orthers stayed and spoke.
“Excellently we detected a Human vessel near the x zone!”the military chief of staf to the chancellor. “Have we identified the vessel?”the chancellor asked. ” yes sir the vessel is registered to two private federation citizens. Doctor Carol Marcus and James Tiberius Kirk!” kor said over the com system.
“Kirk was once a star fleet officer!”Chang said .”this is a federation plot to destabilize the empire. A prelude to invasion!”the chief of staf said.
“We should not jump to conclusions excekentcy. There are greater concerns!”kor said. “All of the evidence suggest that this is a force of nature not an attack!” Dr. Tirek the head of Klingon science said.
“All warrior are cold warriors. Revenge is a dish best served cold. They have begun an attack. Cry havok and let slip the dogs of war!” Chang said.
“Prepare our forces for an attack on the federation. “The chancellor said. The head scientist was clearly agitated.so was kor.
Kor motioned his two top officers to come over to a corner. “Discus this with no one. ” the captain told the two officers. They both agreed. He explained his plan.
Private research vessel
” personnel log James t Kirk. After gaining valuable information on the mass,we are heading back to the federation. We had to take several detours. We have to avoid the Klingon. That has not been an easy task. ”
“Either they suspect us or they trying to blaim us Jim!”Gary said. “Klingons never change! ” Jim said .”there empire may be literily dying. Are they really going to play politics right now?”Dr. Carol Marcus said. “Can we really expect them to be anything but who they are?” Jim said. “Perhaps not. “Carol said.
The human vessel headed at high warp towards the border. The ship had to be careful. What is a quick trip will take longer. That had to be done.
The tholien scientist was escorted to the conference rooom. “Doctor.I am convinced that you were not behind the attacks on the empire. I was hoping to be able to look over your notes. ” Dr. Kalera said. “I would be happy to help you. I got very close to the mass. I believe I have gotten the closest. I believe that this is a symptom of a bigger problem. One that thretends the whole galaxy. “The tholien said.
Kolona entered the bridge. ” I would like to volunter my services. I am a skilled communications tech. “The Klingon said. “Take the com post it is..”Norris said. “I know where it is!”she said.
“Captain !”Spock said. Norris went over to the science station. “Report!” the acting captain ordered. “There has been quite a buildup along the neutral zone. I believe that they are preparing to attack. “Spock said.
“Why would they lunch am attack. It is a waste of resources. ” Dr. Piper said. ” there are rumors that a human vessel not affiliated with star fleet was near the mass!”gioto said.
“Do we know who the commander is?” Addison asked. “James Kirk!”gioto said .”Kirk I dated him at the academy.he was too much of a player!”Addison said. “I never met Kirk. I heared he was prety attractive. ” mis said. “Human males are repugnant. No offense commander!”kolona said. “It’s fine lt!”Norris said.
“Kirk was I’m star fleet. As I recal he left to form a research firm with doctor Carol Marcus. “Spock said. “So he ended up with Carol. I am not surprised. ” Addison said.
“If they find Kirk he is as good as dead! Kalona said. ” can’t we help him?”piper asked. “I can’t risk making thus worse. If he makes it to the border I Will help him. I can’t risk it. Besides if the mass continues it will threaten the federation. I have to focus on that. Kirk is on his own!”Norris said.
End of part five
The aid to the military chief of staf is indeed General Chang the shakespere qoating warrior played by Christopher plumber in star trek six. One of my favorite vilen from one of my favorite star trek movies.
Sicurity chief giito was played by Barry ruso. He appeared in “devil in the dark”
Yeoman Smith was played by Andrea Dorman.She appeared in “where no man has gone before”
