“You are troubled?”Liz asked. “I always get worried at this time. This is a difficult but important mission for my people. It is vital really. “Klasic said.
Liz and Smith put there arms around him. “You will do that! You are the man who can do this!”Smith said.
Klasic smiled. He was not sure that he believed that. He put on a brave front. He knew in his heart that the hero worship was not genuine. He would indulge in The illusion for a second.
“Excelentcy! We have incoming ! Its the enterprise !”the science officer reported. “Danger! “Davis said.
The captain tried to calm his ‘guest’ . the room got very quet. T
he enterprise got off the first shot.
“Return fire!” klasic ordered.the hendrini vessel returned fire on the federation vessel.
The enterprise was hit. The vessel rocked backward. The bridge crew felt the shock of the impact. The crew was able to get back on there feet.
“Shields holding! Minor damage but nothing too savere. “Tim reported. “Lets keep it that way!” the security chief commented.
Lt. Dasale fired phasers and Ryan fired photon torpedoes.the projectiles struck the warship. The warship was hit from multiple sides.
“Why do they attack us?”Smith asked. “They do not understand.they are confused. “Klasic said.
The hendrini ship fired back . the corridor was hit. The corridor was mostly cleared of traphic. There was evidence of damage.

“Are you really going to sit on the side lines?”the Vulcan first officer asked. “Hardly! “Addison commented.
She went over to her terminal.she started to type things in. “I was begging to wonder if this in incident had caused you to lose your motivation!”Sotril said.
“This incident never? It would take more then a male piped piper that transform my crew into mansion girls to take away my mono!”Addison declared. “I should never have doubted you!”Sotril said “no you should not have. You should be very ashamed of yourself. “Addison declared.”I don’t think that Is likely !” Sotril said. “No I did not think so. I had to suggest it. “Addison said.
She looked at the screen.she looked over the sansor logs of the alien ship. She believed that she had found an advantage.
“Your about to embark on a mission that is dangerous,irrational and probably doomed to and you want me to join you? “Sotril said. “Yes I do. “Adiison said. “Very well !”Sotril said.
The battle between the two ships continued. The enterprise and the warship continued to exchange weapons fire.
While the two ran to the transporter room. They both ran into the transporter room. “Can you get me on to the ship?”she said. “Is in one peace optional?”transporter chief takigawa asked.
“That’s really not funny chief!”she said. “I can’t get you a bored. There is a spot near there the ships swimming pool that is not heavily shielded. I can get you in. “The chief said.
“They have a swimming pool! Why am I not surprised. Make it happen !”Addison ordered. “Will do!”takigawa said.
The chief activated the controls. The chief turned the solid forms of the captain and first officer into molecular form. Then he beamed the team to the hostle ship.
The two emerged inside the bowel of the alien vessel. “That was a bumpy ride?”Addison asked.”yes indeed!”the female Vulcan said in response. “I thought contraction were bad!”she said .”I have yet to experience that. Can’t say I am looking forward to it !”Sotril said . “don’t blame you there! “Addison said.
The two moved out. They had phasers ready and standing by. They had to travail by stealth. It made the trip much longer. It was the only way to get aboard.
Now they had to make the best the best of it. They both did all they could to stop this threat. They kept going.
Sotril found a power nodules. She started to hack into the computer of the alien vessel. Addison stood guard. Sotril was one of the most skilled computer technicians in the fleet. She was determined to succeed in bringing down the enemy shields.
The enterprise and Hendrini battle went on. Both sides unleashed volley on the orther. Both sides were committed to wining the battle.
“Could you jury this a little? “Addison said. “I am doing my best. Surek did not transform can society over night!”she said.”very well. “Addison said. “Thank you from refraining from commenting about how I am becoming like Tim. “She said .”no problem. Oh by the way you are.”Addison said. “How did I know that was comming” Sotril asked .
She got in. She got the shields down. They ran out of the way They were met by weapons fire. They returned fire on the team.
“There shields are down!” dasale reported. “Fire everything we have!”Gioto ordered.the enterprise hit the enemy vessel with multiple volleys of phasers and photon torpedoes.”Excellency maine turret off line. There goes one of the disruptor bank. “The gunner reported.
“What are we going to do?” Smith asked. The door opened,Addison and Sotril entered. Then a security team led by Galloway emerged. “Who are you?”klasic asked.
“I’m captain Addison mccomic commanding officer of the enterprise. I am very ticked off right now!”she declared.
“How did you block our telepathic inhibitors?” the exo asked.”I an in love with someone . apparently your hokis pookus does not work on those who are in love !” Addison said.
“What do you want?” klasic said. “Well intergalactic peace,a cure to thus headache,my daughter not waking up In the middle of the night wanting to be Fed but your surrender and return my people would be a good start. ” she said .
“We can’t. You do not understand. They are our only hope!”the exo said. “I don’t understand!”Sotril remarked.
“Fithty years ago during our war with the agrantra, they infected our world with a biogenic agent that killed most of our females. Those who services were unable to have children. ” the exo said.
“Our race was condemned to death. We have always had a high digree of telepathic abilities. We have honed our abilities to attract potential mates. ” klasic said.
“Surely you can mate with orther species without brain washing women into mating. Flowers and poetry worked for me!” Addison said.
“The female we’re not the only ones affected by the weapon. ” Klasic said. The hendrini started to revert to there natural sate. They were hideous looking. They had tumors and other absent. They had Signs of radiation poising and other discolerations.
“Who would be romanticized by us captain ! ” klasic said. “You used the ship you acquire more females!”Galloway commented.
“I understand it appears to be morally repugnant but we have no choice. We have a right to servive!”klasic declared.
“I won’t argue that you have Right to servive. That has to be a better way. My crew and the crew of the puritan vessel must be returned at once. “Adison said
“Your females have all been I affected with microbes we sent telepathically. I suspect you and your companion also carry them. Your crew will stil be under our control.
“You won’t help us remove them? ” Addison said.”by resisting us you have become our enemies . you won this round. “Klasic said.
“I suggest you stay out of our way captain ! I Will warn the galaxy about you. I will treat you as a threat if I encounter you again. ” Addison said. “Very well!”he said.
“Captains log, the puritan vessel and all of the crew have returned. While I have been forced to have them placed in decontamination. I myself will have to go though decontamination. ”
“I was wrong about you!”egreer said.”I May have been wrong about you as well. You are not quite a pain in the but as I first suspected. “Adison commented.
“I am sure our species will encounter each other. Perhaps you and I will as well. Perhaps we can help you deal with the anipovnouds and there ilk. ” egreer said.
“I would appreciate that !”she said.”good day!”he said.”to you as well”
Next up .
The female crew struggle to overcome The effect of the telepathic microbe.
All over the ship, females revolted against the crew. They acted like zombies. They were not mindless. They stil had there faculties.they used it against the ship and crew.
Palmer and the orther patients escaped from sickbay. The security people were over whelmed. Suddenly they felt the transporter beam.
They emerged on the bridge of the hendrini vessel. Klasic hugged the new arrivals. “Welcome ! Welcome I have longed for this day. I have longed for you to become part of our family . part of our future. Part of the future!”klasic declared.
“You are the future!” Palmer said.”you have rescued us!we are eternally greatfull!”mescha Davis said. “We are yours!” yeoman Smith said. “You are our future!”Christine chapel said .
“You are myne. As you now depend on me,I depend on you. ” klasic told them. “We are one!”yeoman Julianne said. “Indeed!”klasic said.
Gioto suspected that the self dustruct had been activated. He went over to the engineering station. “Just as I suspected!they have activated self destruct! “The security chief now In command announced. ” we can deactivate it can’t we?”Kylie asked.
“If I am right. They have set up a counter measure.I doubt they would make this easy!”gioto commented. “Agreed but what do we do about it?”dasale asked.
The commander took out his communicator . “addy are you stil with us?”he asked. “That is an interesting way to put it. Reports of my joining the hendrini herem have been greatly exadurated. “Addison said.
“Glad to hear it! Look adison self destruct has been activated. We can’t shut it off. “He said. “Alright ! Get ready to evacuate. I am going to try a few things. You may have to leave just in case!”she said.
“Understood good luck!”he said. “Thank you bary ! I think we Will need it! ” adison said. “Begin evacuation!”the commander ordered. “Sending order!”Leslie said.
Addison headed for a Jefferies tube. She took out a communicator. “Sotril I need your help!” she said .”I an on my way. How do you know I did not sucomb ,”she asked. “I had a hunch! “Addison said.
Sotrril found her in the Jefferies tube. “I am trying to find the emergency overide. It is not where it is supposed to be. ” adison said. “The enterprise was martucuasly constructed but the finishing touches was in haste.”she said. “I remember reading about that. “Addison said.
“The blue prints are based on what was planed not how it turned out to be!” Sotril said . “I would think it would have to be hear somewhere. Come on marvic! Where did you put it. Man that guy is a loon!”Addison said. “Captain I fail to see how yelling at a guy who is light years away will help find the overide. “Sotril said. “I hate it when you make sense!”she said.
Sotril used her hand and scanned it. She found it. The node came up.”no fair!”she said. The female Vulcan activated the code. “Palmer altered the code. I can’t deactivate it!”Sotril said. “They think of every thing!”Addison said. Sotril tried to purged the computer. After a few minutes the self destruct was deactivated.
“Desaster averted once again!”Sotril said .”how did you do that?”Addison asked. “I created a computer virus that overode the auto destruct. It is an old vashar trick. “Sotril said. “You are full of surprises !”Addison said .”I do try to pull my weight around hear!”Sotril said .”Tim is really tubing off on you.you got to stop with human coliqualsm!”she said. “I will try!”she said.
“It seams your brain is generating a counter pulse that fight the telepathic charge from the hendrini. “Dr. Piper said. “So its because I’m in love?”Addison asked.”it would appear so!”the doctor said.”don’t let ry find out!”Addison said. “Funny ad!”ry said. “You know you love me!”Addison told him. “I do !”he said. Then they kissed.
“They a low you two to serve on the same ship. Even though you command and he is a subordinate?”egreer asked. “I told them either they let us be on the same ship or I would defect to the klingons!”she said. “”I don’t want to know rather or you are kidding!”Dr.piper said .
“So how is commander Sotril able to resist the telepathic suggestions?”the security commander said. “She is in love with me !”Tim said. “I don’t know that I would characterize it in that manner. “The first officer said. “He started to sing,”your going to have to face it your addicted to Tim!” he said. “You have an unusual ship “egreer said.”you have no idea! “The captain said.
“Although it seams that the captain and first officer are unefected by the telepathic weapon,I have been asked to remane in charge for now. We need to retrieve the crew!”the acting captain said.
“It won’t be easy. I hate to abandon the crew but we are still venerable. Perhaps we should cut our loses and retreat to federation space. ” lt. Dasale said.
“That is not an option.I respect your view but we cannot just abandon our team. At least not until we have exhausted every avenue first. “The security chief said.
The chief helmsman decided that he should drop the matter. He quickly did.
“This won’t be easy. Dr. Piper can you create a counter measure?”the chief asked. “I have created what could be a counter weapon but we won’t know until we test it in actural use!”Dr. Piper reported.
“Are we sure it only strikes females?”lt. Kylie asked. “Not definently . only anocdotaly. Not to a complete certenty. ” Dr. Piper said.
“Alright! Get the counter measure ready. Lt. Galloway prepare a security team. I want to be ready for anything. “Gioto instructed. “You got it !” lt. Galloway said.
“I want shields at maximum. I want battle drills around the clock until we I.p with the hostile. “Gioto said. “You got it!”dasale said. “Lets do this!”the acting captain said. They all got up.
“You have brought fulfilment to my life ! “Liz said. “It has only just begun my dear. The old existence will pale in comparison to the new life. “Klasic feared.
Liz smiled. “I know that is true !”she told him. “You have already changed our life! “Yeoman Smith said. The man in charge smiled. He hugged the two former crewman of the enterprise. They kissed him.
“You are our future! We see that now!” mescha said. “You are our future!”klasic said.
The officers on the bridge got very quiet when he said that. They knew what he was saying was true. None of them liked to be reminded of that fact.
“I found them ! They were doing everything they could think of to mask there signature but I got um. “Tim reported.
“Send the coordinance to the helm.Ryan you know what to do. “The security chief temporarily in command said. “Got it! laying in coordinates now!” Ryan said. “Activating course now !”lt. Dasale said.
The enterprise went to warp. The vessel spared no expense heading for the enemy vessel.
“Excelentcy! The enterprise was not destroyed. It is heading on a direct intercept course for us . ” the sansor officer reported.
“They should have been destoyed!”the executive officer said. “The crew of the enterprise is very resourceful. This is a minor set back. One I intend to correct very shortly ! Plot an intercept course of our own. ” klasic said.
“They have plotted an intercept course ! “Tim said. “They are eiger to fight us. Thsts ok with me! I dont shy away from a fight. Lets do it!”Gioto said.
The enterprise and the hendrini vessel headed for each other. The enterprise got off the first fire.
The hendrini warship returned fire on the enterprise. The battle had began! The battle to retrieve there crew was in Ernest.
To be concluded.
I did not have a lot of Canon source info for Gioto or dasale. I am trying to go with Information I have. There is not much on piper but you can kinda read though the lines. Kinda crochity set in his ways. Not afraid to give his perspective.
As for the reason for hasty finishing up of the enterprise,I have no idea .I will work on that in the course of this fan series.
I think that Larry marvic being eccentric is not far fetched.
“Captain’s log, while on a mission of exploration, the enterprise answered a distress call from a vessel that hit caught in a trap. A race that seams to able to influence females against there crew. ”
“They have pasionently warned us against this enemy and there capabilities. Now they have arrived.they are preparing to move against us. We have prepared.we think we are ready but are we,”
“Usualy my place would be on the bridge. While so far I have been able to resist the telepathic suggestion . I cannot count on that .I have been compelled to stand aside. I have turned over the ship to the command if security chief gioto. I have left the bridge in case I do succumb . ”
After leaving the Bridge.Addison went to a turbo lift. She was uncertain what to do now. Where would she go? She decided to head for the crew quarters. The door opened,she excited the turbo lift. The door closed.
She roamed the corridor. She felt so out of place. She was unsure if herself . this was not the usual confident Addison mccomic. While she hated not being on the bridge .her crew knew there job. She had the best crew in the fleet. She was confident it would be proven today.
Klasic was known for confidence.he was also known for overconfidence. This ship has proven a harder opponent then He had suspected. That was alright.he enjoyed a challenge. Perhaps they would be one or perhaps they would fizzle out as so many had before.
“All decks on alert!”Leslie reported. “Stay on um!”gioto ordered. “Now in fireing range. ” Tim announced.
The hendrini vessel fired a plasma like burst that resembled a Romulan plasma beam. It hit the ship. The burst was largely repelled by the ship’s shields.
“Shields holding!” kyile said. “Return fire!”gioto ordered. The enterprise fired multiple phaser volleys on the enemy ship.
The plasma weapon did some damage. It was not just the goal of the weapon to do physical damage to the ship. There was another objective of the weapon.
Adison ft some kind of burst. Her head ached. She tried to stay calm.there was intensive pain. She just wanted it to go away. Was this the beginning of the process?
Could her mind be sucombing to the control of the siren weapon. She hoped not.
She kept fighting the attacks or whatever it was. She would not just surrender to these people. Finaly the head aches were gone.maybe the mind attack was over.she hoped that that was the case.
After being relieved of duty,sotril went to her quarters. She would
have perfered to have stayed at her post. She understood the reasoning behind the decision. She felt it was probably the best decision given the circumstances.
Then she felt the mind attacks. It was similar to what the captain experienced. She came to the same conclusion that the captain had. She tried to fight it. She knew she had to.
In suckbay Palmer went nuts. She tried to break pass the restraints. She was unable to get out of the bed. Dr. Piper had her sedated again. The sedatives were not working. He was Reluctant to up the sedatives but felt He had to. He upped the dosege slightly.
Then the other patients turned against him. Dr. Piper was overwhelmed. The night gownan clad patients were becoming an obstacle to the doctor. The patcients kept chafing against the restraints.he kept sedating the patients. The sedatives were not working. He did not want to keep using them. He was not sure he had a choice. He had to slow them down.
Sudenly They had gotten free. Dr. Piper was rendered unconscious.they had tied him up. The door to sick bay had been sealed. Palmer and the others tried to override the security lockout. It was not going well for them. They did not give up. They kept trying. Eventually they were able to oppen the door.
The hendrini vessel hit the enterprise with conventional weapon.the weapon was similar to photon torpedoes. The enterprise hit back with phasers.
“The patients has broke free of suckbay!” Leslie said .”seal off those decks!”gioto said .”I am getting reports of disturbances all over the ship!”Leslie reported. “Dawn! ” the acting captain said.
Security officers were deployed all over the ship. They were overwhelmed. There were not enough guards to deal with the multiple crises all over the ship.
The guards could not handle all of this. One team was quickly overpowered. They wanted to keep going. They won this round.would they keep wining was not certain.
“I told you this would happen! You have lost the enterprise!”klasic said. “Would you be be quet? “Gioto said.
Palmer went to a Jefferies tube. She took out a device. Though her mind was altered. She stil had her technical know how. She had her knowledge of technology. She was using it. Unfortunately It was being used against the enterprise and there crew.
The lights went dark. “Report!”gioto ordered. “I have lost helm control. “Dasale said. “I can’t get it back!”Ryan said. “I am unable to access back up power!”Tim reported. “I stil have com syistom!”Leslie reported. “Of course we do” gioto commented.
Lt. Styles and others were barricaded In the secondary bridge. The door opened. Styles went for his phaser. He and the others were stunned. Ensign mescha Davis and nurse chapel and other female crew entered the a.c.
“We have lost control of the a.c. “Leslie announced. “You have really blown it ‘captain’ your not qualified to command an ice cream ship. ” klasic said. “Either you calm down or I will throw you in the brig or out an airlock whichever is more convenient !” gioto said .
The alien captain did not say anything after that.”seal the bridge! “Gioto ordered.
“We cannot sucesfully retain control of the enterprise!” the exo said .”i have come to the same conclusion evhen. We will beam up the females them leave The ship. You know what to do !” klasic ordered. “Yes excelentcy I do. ” vhen said.
“Detecting multiple transports. “Tim reported. “Are we being boarded?”gioto said. “Negitive the women are beaming out.the hendrini vessel us heading out!” Tim reported . ” out no! “Gioto said.
Gioto knew what was going on.he did not have to check. He knew what was going on. The ship was set on self district. Unless they acted quickly the ship would be destroyed. The female would be lost.
End of part five .
“The vessel has not not reversed course. It still on course outside this space!”the first officer reported. “They are not taking our bait! “The science officer said.”no matter! Go ahead with plan b !”klasic said. “Aye sir!”the com tech said.
“You think we frustrated them?””dasale asked. “I am expected a response! “Addison said.”sir! We are being whales!”lt.Palmer announced.
“No response. Wait! Jam it quickly!”Addison admonished her. She tried. “I can’t. It is trying to override my efforts! “Palmer said.
“Mr. Leslie take over the com station. Audry stand down!”Addison ordered. “I’m fine captain !”Palmer said.
“Stand down !”Leslie said.she refused. Addison fired on her with a phaser. She was stunned.Leslie took over.
“That was a bit overkill Addison!”piper said. “Under the circumstances Mark I think not. All female officers leave the bridge!”Addison said. “Captian!”yeoman Smith asked.”do it! Desprate times !”Addison said.
Smith grabbed the phaser form a scrutiny guard. Addison stunned her. “Folow my orders!”Addison said.
Sotril,lix and the other females on the bridge started to leave. “Captian I must insist you leave as well!”Egreer said.
“With all due respect,you are hear as a curtisy. Don’t make me change my mind. “Addison said.
“Seal the bridge!”Addison said. “Understood!”Galloway said. “Do you think the whole crew is effected by the mind control?”Ryan asked.”without knowing for sure,I feel I have to act on the premise that the answer is yes. “Addison said.
She went over to the com station. “Get me engineering!”Addison ordered. The security chief was by her side. “Got it captain.”Leslie said. The Captain put on an ear peace.
“Chief go private!”Addison said.”ok go ahead!”pitcarin said.”Neil! You need to clear engineering of all female personal ! This is vital! “The captain said. “Understood!”the engineer said.
In engineering the chief tried to ask the female crew to leave. The female started to fight back. The chief tried to regain control of the engineering
The women tried to reclaim the engine room. Pitcarin sent for security. Pitcarin went into his office . he sealled the door. He tried to transfer engine control to hid station. “I am being fought at every turn!”Neil said.
“Addy! The chief had to go to his office. He is trying to get control of the engines!”Leslie said. “You have lost control of the engines ?”Egreer said in a loud condescending tone.
“Look your relay starting to get out one my nerves! If Neil can’t regain control of the engines what are our options?” Addison asked.
“I might be able to override the engines form the bridge station. If not auzilery control. I am guessing there memories will be in tact. If we are thinking about it,so are they!”lt. Kyile said.
“Stay on it!”Addison ordered. “You got it!”Kylie said. “This ship cannot be allowed to fall!”Egreer said. “With all due respect Captian. You are really starting to get on my nerves. “Adison said.
“Your not taking this seriously. If you would spend more time focusing on this crises then ogling your boyfriend !”Egreer said. “He is my husband!”Addison said. “Whatever!”Egreer said.
“Captain’s log,so far chief enginer pitcarin has been able to prevent the enemy from gaining access to the engines. ”
“I am concerned by the behavior of our guest. There Captian is growing more and more restless. I fear they may be just as much of a threat as the hendrini. ”
Lt. Palmer was moved to sickbay. She was in a sick bay night gownan. She was heavily sedated and restrained.
“Anything mark?”Addison asked. “I a detecting some kind of telepathic energy I gues. “Piper said.”Is it some kind of telepathic control?”Addison asked. “Itapears so ! ” “Dr. Piper said. “There must be a way to supres him.”Addison said.”I am working on it but I have not found it yet! “Dr. Piper told her.
“Keep me apprised doctor!”Addison told her. She agreed. “You got it!”he said.
“The ship is secure. Enginering and auc is secure!”gioto said. “I still prefer you not be in command !”Egreer said. “We can’t always get what we want. We live in an imperfect world!”she said.
“We have incoming. It is the hendrini vessels. They are coming in weapons hot!” lt. Tim Mathews reported. “Go to yellow alert! Shields up!stand by all weapons!”Addison ordered. “Weapons ready!”dasale announced.”gioto take charge. In a mission like this,there can only be one captain. In this case it cannot be me!”she said. “Ok people! Lets stay on our toes!” gioto said. Addison excited the bridge.
End of part four.
“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.

“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.

“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.

“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.

“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.
