“Captain’s log against my better judgement i am heading for a planet that may help cure the virus infecting a good chunk of the federation and even into the Klingon empire. ”
“This could all be for naught but i am hopeful that I
t is not. I hope that they are right. I don’t know. ”
“The virus continues to spread. The qarentine has been expanded. The federation is on high alert. “Piper said.
“I have detected tholien vessels. So far they have not taken any action !” Kyile reported.
“Don’t give them any reason to take any more notice !”Addison ordered.
The bridge crew was on edge. They tried to keep calm. They tried to do there job.
Irina went on her cofee break. She went to her qurters. “Irina!”severin said. “You are disipointed in me!”she asked . “I don’t understand it. You believed in our cause!”he said. “I still do. It has mushromed beyond its original perpose. It had become a cult,a gestalt,it was ment to be a new way of thinking. To challenge conventional thinking. Now it has become a convention in and of itself. I fear a mesianic image has been developed around you and i fear you have brought into it.”she said.
” You cannot live in two worlds. You know in your heart we are on the right path. Eden is out there. Someone has to have the courege to lead us there. When we cure the virus and i believe we will. They will have to admit we are right. “Severin said.
” I can’t join you. You have chosen a course i cannot follow . In star fleet i can be who i am. I can be the sceptic and the dreamer. I don’t have to sacrifice reason for idealism or vice versa. “She said.
” we will cure the virus. They will see our worth. Mayby we will a noble z and mangies prize. Mayby we will be granted sate hood satus within the federation. “Severin said.
“That will never happen ! Not with you as the leader. They will never trust you. I don’t think they can. I know i don’t. If tongo was the leader maybe but not you. “She said.
” At least i know where i stand and where you stand. I see i don’t know you anymorr. Perhaps i never did. You were a seaker but never a belever. You were convinced but not persaded. A convert but not a follower. You will miss out!”he said.
She thought to herself ,i only fear for those who won’t. She knew what was coming.
“We are in scanning range of the planet!” Sotril said. ” Comence scan. “Addison ordered.
“Begining scan!” Sotril reported. The tech began scanning the planet. “I am detecting substances that could have madicinal properties !” Sotril said. ” alright ! We will begin sending landing teams to the planet. They will take samples. ” Addison ordered.
“I hope this works. I don’t want to give severen any crebility but i do want want to find a cure or at least a treatment.”dr. Piper said. “As do we all doctor !” The captain said.
The team began to emurge on the planet. They started convulsing. Dr. Piper called for imidiate transport back up to the ship. The crew was back.
“The planet is toxic to humanoids!” Dr. Piper anonced.” Nothing showed up as toxic on the sensors!” Takigawa said. ” we will have to use e.v.a suits !” Sotril said. “Alright ! Lets get to it!”Addison ordered.
“Captain’s log we have been able to get a sample of the properties that may be the bases of a cure to the benet proser virus. We are coordinating with the united federation of planets center of dease control. We are hopeful that it will produce a cure!”
Addison was taking a nap in her qurters. The door chime rang. “Come in!” Addison asked. The door opened.
“We have a cure! “Dr. Piper asked. “Your sure it works. “She asked. “We tried it on the crew of the palmyra,they have no signs of the virus. They are going to try on it on those bad off. “Dr. Piper said.
“Is the crises over?” She asked . “For all intense and perposes yes. We dodged this phaser blast.” Dr. Piper said. “Good! “She said.
“They have decided to drop the charges of ignoring the qarentine order except for me. I have to serve six mouths in a rehab colony. My crew will not be charged but we will liqidate our ships. My lisence to operate a ship has been revoked!” Dr. Severen said.
“You spread the virus . You almost started a war. You got off easy!” Irina said. “I intend to one day resume my search for eden. I am certain it is out there. I intend to find it. ” He said.
“Captain’s log the enterprise is on its way back to the federations. The medical crises is over as well as the diplomatic crisis with the Klingon empire. Things for the most part has calm down!”
The ship went to warp.
“Star ship log ensign irina galion reporting. When i was young i got caught up in iddelism. In searching for myself i almost lost myself. Every one strugles with identity. We try to determine who we are.in my case it almost tore me apart. ”
“I vanted to leave all that behind. I wanted to move on. My past has caught up to me. It is difficult for me to revisit all of that. It seams i have to. I am forced to confront it. My old friends are in danger. This is of great concern for me. While there goals are no longer my goals, i still want them safe!”
A few moments erlier.
“We have incoming ! Klingon battle crusher. ” the technician who manned the sansers. The vessel fired photon torpedoes on the vessel.
“Evasive action !” The person in command said. The vessel tried to evade the war ship. The vessel pilot worked to take the ship out of the line of fire. The ship did have phasers and used the phasers. They were not as potent as the Klingon disruptors and photon torpedoes,the Plymouth crew made good use of them.
The Klingon wanted to stop the virus from continuing to spread.this was also about revenge. The Klingons took this personaly. They wanted the Plymouth destroyed.
The Plymouth did not bow out qietly. The ship did what it could with what it had. It was not much but they would make a go of it.
The Klingon ship continued to fire. They hit a nichele. The nichelle was hit. The energy hit the nearby area causing plenty of damage.
The Plymouth continued to try to get away. The vessel would not yield but of course neither would the Klingons.
The enterprise worked to get there as fast as they could. Pitcarin and dassale pushed the engines to the breaking point.
“The Plymouth is holding there own but it has taken quite a beating!” Gioto said. “Why are we on there side again ?”yeoman smith asked. “I don’t remember ! “Addison said.
“Almost in weapons range! ” kyile said. “Come on! Come on! “Addison said. The enterprise finally arived and opened fire on the Klingon vessel.
“Pick on someone your own side!”addy said. The enterprise released a full volley of phasers and photon torpedoes at the enemy battle crusher.
The Plymouth fired a volley of there own. “Audry advise the Klingon vessel to stand down!” She ordered.
“Klingon vessel this is the enterprise. You are advised to stand down! Repeat you are advised to stand down. ” Palmer said.
“Vessel is maintaning fire!” Gioto said. “The Plymouth has sustained damage but they are holding together quite nicely !”Kyle said.
The enterprise hit the Klingon ship. The enterprise fired on the reigion near there engines. The Klingon vessel returned fire on the enterprise.
“Shields holding !” Sotril reported. The enterprise fired on multiple targets on the battle ship.
“we are being hailed !”lt. Palmer said. “On screen!”Addison ordered. On the view screen,the bridge of the Klingon war ship was displayed.
“That ship and crew is myine star fleet! “Kang said. “Your in federation space kang! You have no jurisdiction hear! Return to Klingon space at once! “Addison said . “That ship is commiting viral warfare. It is a plaugue ship ! They don’t seam to care about borders ! Why should we?” Kang said.
” kang stand down or you risk a military response!”addy said. “Come on Addison ! You would fight a war over a plague ship. Your fleet is vanerable due to the taiwan incident. Your under a boycaught by half of the non aligned words. You won’t do it!” Kang said.
” You sure about that kang! Stand down ! ” she said. The Klingon swore in his native tounge then ended the conversation.
“Vessel is heading back to Klingon space ! ” sotril said. ” i cant believe that that worked! ” smith said. “Kang would rather we deal with it. He wanted to bluster a bit!”Addison said.
” addy the Plymouth is trying to get away from us! ” sotril said. “Really ! Fire a warning schot!”addy said. “Can we bring the Klingons back?”Dassale asked.”don’t tempt me Vincent !”she said.
The Plymouth was hit. The vessel tried to get away.”stand down Plymouth ! Stand down!”Addison ordered.
“They are going on about how they don’t listen to Herberts.”palmer said. “Disable there engines!”Addison said. The enterprise fired near the engines. The enterprise fired multiple voleys.
“There engines are off line!” Sotril said. “Activate tractor beam. I have had enough of these people ! I’m sory irina!” Addison said.
“I sware your frustration captain! ” she said. ” I value all opinion and ideas. I don’t mind my own beliefs challenged In fact i welcome it. I draw the line at risking the health and safty of home space. “She said.
“Incoming mesege from qarentine command. The palmyra had gotten away. They are on the run!”lt. Palmer anounced.
“What is it with these people ? We will bring this ship to the base. I am removing there warp core. Then i am going after that ship! ” Addison said.
“What will you do when you find them?”smith said. “Right now i am leaning towards handing them over to the klingons. “Addison said.
“We have incoming !”rebecca said. “Addy the herbert captain and her lap dog irina'”dr. Severin said.
“Hail the hurbert ship!” Severin ordered. The com tech sent the message.
“We are being hailed!”lt. Palmer said. “Seams we want to talk now!” Addison said.
“Do we ablige?”sotril said. “On screen !”she ordered. The screen was activated. “Dr. Severin,we really need to stop meating like this!” She said.
“Captain i apolozize for ignoring the qarentine but it was necessary ! I may have a solution for you!”he said.
“Please tell me your not going to try to peddle one of your homeopathics?” Addison said. “No. I have a solution ! I hope you will hear me out. Try to keep an open mind!” He implored her.
The bridge of the palmyra transmission was piped into the brefing room of the enterprise. “This virus is devisating but i believe i may know a solution. There is a planet known for its heeling properties. The planet is not myithical not magical. It is science. ” dr. Severen said.
“The planet is far away. I have heard the stories but most repuable scientist dismiss it as fanciful !” Dr. Piper said. “These repuable scientists have a limited imagination captain!” Sevrin said.
“While i understand your scepticism ,there is mutch we do not understand about the universe. Some planets have natural heeling properties. While it sounds far fetched. It is not!” T’pring said.
“The planet is near tholien space. The tholiens tend to claim every thing in there field of visson. They could claim it as there own. ” Sotril said.
“We could cure this. I am sure of it!” Severin said. “This could be a wild goose chase! ” dr. Pipper said. “I don’t believe that to be the case!” Rad said. “If it turns out to be nothing we have wasted time. This is hardly the time to waste time ans eforts!” Addison said.
“That is why we must go captain. You don’t like us. I can acept that. Don’t sacrifice the lives of those suffering out of spite. ” Dr. Severin said.
“Irina what do you think?” Addison asked . “I see it as a 50 -50 chance. “She said. “Irina what happened to you?”adam asked. ” I saw your irationality first hand!” Irina answered.
” Mark what do you think?” She asked.” It could be a wild goose chase but it could be true. “Mark said.
“The fact is you have not earned our trust. You seamed to have done the very oposite. We have every reason to distrust you? ” Addison said
“Please captain. Don’t condem those afected in federation and Klingon space out of spite!” Severen said.
The captain thought it over. She gave it some serious thought. “We are going to go? Gioto i want every arsenal we have at our disposal. Pitcarin i need the engines at a thousand percent. Irina Vincent you know your job. Severen i am in command of this mission is that clear?”she said. He said it was. They had work to do.
End of part six
On the view screen was displayed the federation surgon general.
“We have contacted the Klingon though a bavk chanel. They are not happy to say the least. Klingon news outlits are caling this a plot by the federation to destobolize there empire. They have sent ships to the Klingon -federation border. We are trying to share our information with them but they don’t want anything to do with that. “The surgon general said.
“Do we know how bad the virus has spread?” Dr. Pipper asked. “No we do not. We are getting varied reports but nothing tangible. This virus has spread beyond the orginal qarentine. “The surgon general said.
“I assume that we are planing to set up a new qarentine zone?”piper asked.”we are but we fear that any qarentine zone will be inacurate. We have to start somewhere! “The federation oficial said.
“This thing will continue to spread!”sotril said. “Yes. We need to find the Plymouth. We want you to escort the palmyra to the qarentine zone command and then look for the Plymouth !”the oficial said.
“Understood! We will get right on it. “Addison said. “We will stay in touch !” The oficial said. “Agreed!”she said. The message ended. The screen was deactivated.
“Captain’s log the enterprise has arived at the qarentine command center and is terning over the s.s palymyra to there custody. We are planing to move on. Our mission is to locate one of there sister ships and escort it to the qarentine zone and determine where they have been.”
“Addy you need to hear this!” Lt. Palmer said. ” a spokesman for the edenites is claming that the federation is persicuting the edenites. They claim that the edenites are being falsly acuused of carying the virus. They say this is part of a propiganda campaign to discredet the group. The press secritary for the president has stated that the qarentine is necessary to combat this virus. These acusations are ludacris. “The reporter jesica Armstrong said.
” Really ? The edenites are turning this political. This virus is devisating. It is no laughing matter!” Addison said.
“I know that! “Irina said. “Why won’t your people take it seriously?” Addison asked.
“Manny edenites suffer from persicution complex. Manny are from minority ethnic groups on there planets or in other minority groups . Despite the benevolent history of the federation,to the edenites they are an empire run by herberts who don’t understand them!” Irina said.
“Rad is the son of a diplomat. Severen was a leading scientific mind on his world. How can they not see this?”Addison asked.
“They have gotten caught up in there own ideology. Many see themselves as the man in the cave. They believe that like the priosonor who see the world outside the cave,they understand the true nature of the universe. We hold on to the cave. This was why i left. I came to see that they took it too far. “Irina said.
“They could cause this virus to spread to areas it need not have spread. We could have had this virus contaned. The edenites will be held acontible for this!”piper said.
“I have found the Plymouth. They are under attack by a Klingon battle crusher !”sotril anounced. “Dawn it! Alright plot an intercept !” Addison orddered. Irina ploted the course. The ship went to warp in order to rescue the Plymouth even though they have caused so much trouble. The enterprise was off.
End of part five
The security team suited up in the presure suits that would allow them to acess a potentialy desease rittled environment. Galloway,leslie and orthhers were ready.
“You don’t seam happy chief?”irina said. “Its these edenites. Don’t get me wrong i understand that technology has been put on a bigger pedistal that it needs to be. I understand that we are overelient on it. They don’t take anything seriously . Life is one big joke.”gioto said.
“You don’t like edenites?”irina asked. “They don’t respect authority . They don’t get things. They believe they can summon some magic peace fairy and every thing will be allright. That is not how it is! A few years ago i was stationed on the planet calrisian, some rougue klingon decided to make a name for himself. He tried to attack the planet. We were in a fire fight. The edenites there tried to surender. The Klingon don’t take prisioners. Four dead two injurred all edenites. “He said.
“We are all ready sir!” Lt. Galloway said. “Ok lets do it! “Gioto said. “Funy that why i left! “She said. “You were an edenite! I’m sory i was blowing off steam!” He said . “Relax commander i agree with you. That was why i left!”
They put there helmits on and entered the transporter room. “Coordinates are set!”chief takigawa said. “Phasers on stun?”Leslie asked. “Yea! I am to avoid confrontation !” Gioto said. They put the helmits on. Gioto gave the clearence to activate the beam. The landing party was off.
The team emurged on the bridge . Adam started chanting herburt. The others except for rad joined in. Sevrin was reluctant at first but did join in.
“Please can we talk!”gioto said. They were shouted down. Irina got there attention. “Irina?” Raf said. “You have joined the hurberts?” Adam asked.
“Look you all may be very sick. You must be screaned! “Irina said. “Sick that is pure bunk!”adam said. “We are perfectly healthy !”sevrin said.” This dease is very deceptive. It comes on suddenly. You can cary it and infect orhers without it efecting you!”irina said. “All hurbert talk. It is just jibber jabbwr designed to make herberts seam importent! We dont reach you any more!”adam said.
“This is unecessiary. We will not contact any world . Please just let us go on our way!”severin said. “Come on rotia,you headed up desease prevention on tiburon,you know i canot do that!”she said.
“You herberts! Everthing is a crises. You need to calm down,mellow out. “Adam said. Many agreed. “We are doing the screaning wrether you agree or not ! “Irina said. “Very well!” Severin said.
“Addison one of the ocupants is a catulan named tango rad. “Sotril said. “Oh no! His farther is the catulan ambassador. This just gets better and better! “Addy said. “I don’t care about charging them although i think they are up to what 9 violations . The one thing i have never understood is extreme views. These edenites have good points but they have to go to the extreme. It turns people that might listen off even drive them to the orther side!” Addison said.”it is how things go in many cases!”sotril said. “I know! These are parilous times. The entire federations security aperatus has been comprimised. We stil don’t know how bad. Romulons and Klingon are showing the flag at there borders. Who knows what the tholiens are up to. We stil have this silly embargo by the league of interstellar law.now this virus. The edenites have terible timing. “Addison said.
Dr. Pipper,mabanga and chepel and the rest of the medical team got to work. “T’pring it is agreible to see you again !”mcbinga said. “And you!”she said. “I am suprised to see you among the edenites!”the doctor said. “To the suprise of manny,the views of’edenite’ And surek are not as oposed to each orther as one may think!”t’pring said. “Perhaps. Fleaing a qarentine zone and risking spreading a nasty virus is hardly logical. “The doctor said. T’pring had no response.
Chief pitkaren looked over ships system. Pitcarin was impresed with the class of ships that the palyma was part of. The somerset class. The crew had made several enchancements. He was quite impresed. He wished he could hire some of these people. They were good.
“Judging by the long faces i take it you don’t have good news?” Addison asked. “Hardly!”dr. Piper said.
“Ok mark you first then pitcarin!” Addison said. “They all are infected with the bp. Why they have not shown syimptons who knows. ” mark said.
“I take it your news is worst chief?”Addison asked. “It is Addison ! The ship has been to several ports of call in the federation and the nutral planet of gandalf three. There was a Klingon vessel was present. It has returned to Klingon space !” Pitcarin said.
” Please tell me there is not more? “Addison said. “The ship met up with another ship s.s Plymouth. Some of there crew went on it. “Pitcarin said.
“This virus could be every where! “Dassale said. “It looks like it! “Pipper said. “Alright. Lt. Palmer send this to the surgeon general and to star fleet command. “Addison said.
“We will need to expand the qarentine!” Commander giito said. ” what do we do about the Klingons!” Yeoman smith asked. “The federation will contact them. They will probably claim we infected them on perpose as some kind of viral warfare. They may use this as justification for military action! “Addison said.
“I am thinking that they will!”sotril said.” This will be difficult days! Lets be on our game!”Addison said. Every one agreed.
End of part four.
Doctor sevrin liked to retreet to his private chambers. He was glad to have time in private. He was once a valued scientist on his homeworld of tiburon. He left it all for edinite philosophy.
This virus did worry him although he would not admit it publically. He knew what this virus was capible of. He had seen it first hand.
The virus efected people diferently. It had different efects. To some people it mimiced a cold that caused snifles and a runy noise. In its most potent form it could cause someone entire body to just shut down. It was difficult to determine witch was witch. If you were a carier you were a medical threat to anyone you came into contact with. Typhod marys were extremely common with this virus.
Edenites were nitorias for being stubern. Thet hated being told what to do. They saw themselves as there own government. They beleved in law as a concept but thought they knew beter then government of planitary states.
He believed that they were fine.he was convinced that he was fine and had no trace of the virus and never would. He waa stil woried but that they would get sick or spread it. He would not say so to his folowers only in his inermost thoughts. He would not give in to fear. He would not give in to the herberts.
“You don’t seam mellow brother rad!”adam said. “Don’t wory adam i reach! “Tango rad said. “You don’t reach the jibber jaber of the herberts do you?”the red head asked. “No of course not!” Rad said.
The edenite dresed simply. They wore lose fitting clothing. Many went barefoot . Even the vulcan t’pring was barefoot and wore a simple dress similar to the two orther female on the bridge. The vulcan did not engage in the conversation. Her opinon on this topic was not yet clear.
“We have a perimiter alert! ” the black haired female naimed Rebecca said. “Can you identify it?” Tango rad asked. ” Probably from the department of no fun !”adam exclamed. The others all chanted in agreement. “Get severen up hear!”rad said.
Dr. Rotia severen went right to the bridge.”what’s going on?”the doctor asked. ” We have a ship. It is hurbert ship! “Adam said. “The enterprise!”t’pring said.
“Got um!” Sotril said. “Irina lay in a persuit course!stay on um
Vincent!” Adison ordered. “Aye sir!” Dasalle said. The enterprise went at high warp. The ship caught up with the scout ship.
“Usually i would say hello first. This is a qarentine situation and they already got passed Wesley and his fleet. Mr. Kyile ready the tractor beam!” Addison ordered.
The ship moved towards the scout ship. Kyile activated the tractor beam. The ship tried to evade the federation vessel.
“They atempting to reverse the polerity on the tractor beam! “Kyile reported. “Who are these people ?” Palmer said. “Manny are professionals. Some are former star fleet!”irina said.
Kyile worked to counter there eforts to stop the tractor beam. The ship was able to esape from the tractor beam. “I have an idea! “Irina said. Irina got up and went to an aft station. She atempted to lower the engines on the ship. The ship started to go warp. Then it stoped.
“The engines are off line!” Another women anounced. ” Get them back on line!” Severen said.”i can’t! “Tango rad reported.
On audio a message came in. “S.s palmyra! You are in violation of federation qarentine law! Stand down at once !” Addison said.
“We need to try to get away!” Adam said. “Our engines are off line!” Tango rad declared. “Stand down!” Dr. Sevren ordered. “We cannot just give in! ” adam incisted. “We are not! We will play there game for now! We will win in the end! The huebert always loses in the end!”dr. Severen said.
“They say they are ready to cooperate!” Lt. Palmer said. “Reengage the tractor beam! Set course for the qarentine zone!” Addison ordered.
The tractor beam was re-engaged. Irina laid in the course.dassale activated the warp drive.the two ships headed for area qarentined.
“On course!”irina said. ” Mark i want you to go down there. Full decontemination geer. “She ordered. “You got it addy!” Piper said . “Gioto take a security team. Same orders!” She said. “You got it!” Gioto said. “Permission to go abored in e.v.a suit. I may be able to help!”irina said. “Go !” She said. “Thank you. Captain.. Addison !”irina said. She got up and another crewman took the navigators chair.
End of part three
” So i hear your planing to adopt miranda?” Addison asked . “I have given it a lot of thought and i think i can be a mom!” She said. “I think it is a good idea! You have my full support !” Addison said. “That meens so much comming from you! Look i was wondering you and ryan would be wiling to be her godparents ?”she asked.
“Sotril and tim asked us to be there child’s godparents. I would be honored!”she said. “If it is too much..” she asked. “I am happy to. I am going to keep you too heathy. On the freighter they said i was destened to have 80 cats!” She said.
“Mayby i won’t be known as a walking frezer unit anymore! “Danner said.”i would not get too hung up on that. Dasal was out of line. ” Addison said. “I gues i should losen up!”danner said. ” be who you are! ” Addison said. “Easier said then done at times!” Liz said.
“Look you ok liz. Ever sense you came back from that planet,you are different! “Addison said. “I am not ready to talk about it!” She said. “Ok if you need to talk about it,i am hear! ” Addison said. “Thank you!”she said.
Addison and danner entered the bridge. “Captain on the bridge !”yeoman smith said. Sotril got up from the command chair. The captain sat down in the command chair. Sotril returned to the science concil.
Addison noticed someone she did not recognize. “Who is this?” Addison asked. “This is ensign irina galiunion. She borded the enterprise at the elbeberen colony!” Dasale said.
“What did you say?” Liz asked. “I borded at the eldeberen colony. I was thrilled when i was asigned to the enterprise!” She said. “It is good to have you abored !”Addison said. “Thank you sir!” She said.
“Addison you have an incoming mesege from the federation surgon general dr. Andrae more !” Lt. Palmer said. “I will take it in the conference room. Sotril you have the bridge!” Addison said. “Understood!” Sotril said.
Addison entered the conference room. She sat down and activated the view screen. On the screen the oficial apeared.
“Captain! There has been a masive outbreak of bennetprosser 114 virus on the edge of federation space. The area has been sealed off and qarentined. “He said.
“I am sory to hear that. I have seen the results of b.p 114. I would not wish it on anyone. “Addison said.
“A civilian vessel palmyra atempted to get pass the blokade.unfortunately they suceded. We are not sure where they went. The crew was checked out on deniva and they did not apear to have the virus. This strain pops up without warning. We have no idea where they are. Under the law anywhere they go has to be qarentined. “The surgon general said.
“I understand sir!”she said. “Time is of the essence. I need the enterprise to locate the palmyra and stop the ship from getting any further. We then have to determine where they been. This is urgent!” He said.
“Will you send us all the pertinent data?” Addison asked. ” Sending now! Please find them before this epidemic spreads to all corners of the federation!” Morre said. “We will !”She said.
“We will stay in touch. Federation out!”he said. She turned off the screen. ” captain to the bridge !”Addison said.”go ahead captain!”sotril said.
“Lt. Palmer will receve coordinates. As soon as irina has them,set course for those coordinances best possible speed!” She said. “Will do!”sotril said.
Lt. Palmer got the coordinates and sent it to irina. She laid in the course. Lt. Dasal entered the course and the ship went to warp.
Asembled was captain mccomic,commander sotril,dr. Piper,dr. Danner,lt. Dasalle,irina,commander gioto,chief pitkarin,and lt. Palmer.
“The civilian vessel palymra has gotten passed the star fleet blokade. The vessel is on the lose. The vessel is manned by edenites!” Lt. Commander gioto said.
“Our mission is to locate and asertain where they have been and who they may have come into contact with!”Addison said.
“Did i hear you right? Edenites? “Irina asked.” Yes they are edenites?” Gioto said.
“What are edenites?” Dr. Pipper asked. “They are a group of people from several different races who are searching for basically the garden of eden. They believe the garden is on a planet. “Irina said. “They are esentialy space hipies!” Gioto said.
“Will they listen to reason ?” Smith asked. “We don’t know! Our orders are to get them back into the qarentine zone. “Addison said.
After a while the captain dismished the meating.everyone got up from the table. After everyone left Addison and irina were stil there. “Captain! I used to be an edinite. “Irina said. “They don’t seam to acknowledge any authority by the federation or any orther government. “Addison said. “They see the only government that efect them as there group. “Irina said. “Do they fear the virus?” Addison asked. “They do not believe they are imortal or indusyrible. They don’t like to be brothered. They don’t believe what goes on out side there organization afect them. I know it probably does not make any sense!”she said.
“I don’t want a fight between the enterprise and the crew of the palmyra. Will you act as a liasion between us and them?”Addison asked. “I will captain but i don’t know if they will listen. I am a trator. I Am coleberating with the hurbert. ” She said.
“I am glad your hear!” Addison said. “I will do all i can captain. I don’t want the virus to spread and i don’t want edenites to get sick or die. “She said.
“Thank you. Please for now on call me addy or Addison. I am not mych for titles especially within my senior staf!”she said. “Very well Addison !” Irina said.
