Captain Ben Norris roameed the house in Jackman Maine. “There you are! Becck is ready to surve the cake. You can’t bail. Your the guest of hornor. ” kalera said. “You agreed that if amber and Becky tired to throw me a birthday party that you would talk them out of it! ” he said. “As I recall you made noises that could have been interpreted as agreement. ” she said.”rihansu pragmitsm.” Norris said.
“You know you love me! ” she said. “Yes I do. ” he said. “You do love me or know it!”he asked. ” I am not sure! ” he said. A young girl came up to her.”aunt Becky and amber want you in the living room asap!”she said. He picked up his daughter. The husband and pregnant wife and daughter walked to the living room.
“Its about time! Our sisters were getting antsy!” Jason said. For some reason Ben found it odd that jasson was there. He could not remember why. He knew he should not be hear. He saw Rebecca’s husband. He did not think he should be heat either. “I can’t believe they incistt on celebrating our birthday every year! I don’t want to be reminded I’m old! ” he said. ” its a celebration that your still hear. ” Jason said. “That’s something I suppose. ” he said.
Amber brought out the cake. Becky started the singing if the happy birthday song. There were lot of children. Ambers and Jeff’s kids. As well as Rebecca and tom . Jason was not maried. Something was off. He blew out the candles. “What’s wrong? ” kalaera asked. “I made a silly wish by mistake. ” he said.”there is always next year. “She said. ” you can have my birthday wish !”his daughter said. “Thanks hunnie!” He said as he hugged her.
Suddenly a phaser blast ripped though the street. He told everyone to get down.there was a beam in. It was quter and his ilk. ” what are you doing hear ?” Captain Norris demanded to know. ” I have come to destroy you!” He said. He schot Jason. Then he schot tom.he schot Rebecca. He tried to protect amber but quter ran through him like he was transparent. Amber was shot at point blank range. She fell to the ground.
“No please. Stop it! Stop all of this! There is no need. ” The captain insisted. “There is every need. ” Quter said. He went for kalera. He tried to shield her as he had amber. He knew it was futile but he refused to do nothing. The phaser blast went though the captain as if he was not there. It hitt her. He screamed. “Why?” He asked.”you are the old.the old order must be destroyed to make way for the new. There is no path like the one true path!” Quter said. “We could do exist. ” He said. “No! No existence. Preservation of the sacred not the profane! ” He said. Then a wave of energy came at him. He screamed as he woke up. He felt sweet all over him. He could not possibly sleep after this.
He was on the enterprise. He had been hear all along. He remembered it all. The one true path. The mass crises,the aftermath, the homes crises ,the zombies and the Christmast party.it was all a dream yet it felt so real. There was no way he could sleep after all this. He decided to get up.
“Hello captian.”the Klingon com officer said. “I was not expecting you to be up. ” The captian said. ” I have had trouble sleeping sence I was a zombie. My body is still on the mend. It helps to do some work. ” She said. “Is there anything going out of the ordinary?”he asked. ” Sense the mass crises we are in a new normal. Everything is quiet. The post crises recovery is continuing.” She said. “Anything new with the one true path!” He asked. ” Not sence the mass crises. They were on the galaxy most wanted list. The crises put them on the back burner. There have been nothing sence the crises. ” She said. ” OK.”he said. “Why?” She asked. ” I was curious.” He said. “If I hear anything I will let you know.” She said. “Of course. ” He said.
He took out his communicator. “Dr. Dahner!” He said. She was a bit groggy.”hello this is dahner.”she said. “Sorry to disturb you but I need someone to talk to.”he said.
She put on a bathrobe over her night gown.the chime rang.she signeled for him to enter.she made tea. He explained his dream. ” You have had the same dream for a week now?”she asked.”it is different but it is Basically the same theme. It’s all ends with everyone I care about including kalera killed by quter. ” He said. ” It could be your fears talking. Your sub conscious could still be deeling with the death of Jason and what happened to Rebecca. Your probably worried about the rest of the family. Despite your trouble with kalera you care about her deeply. Quter may represent the dangers. “She said. “What if there is really is a threat by quter and his preserver cult?”BN asked.
“It’s posible. Do you have a high ESP Rating?” She asked. “Not really. I was tested at the academy. “He said. She had a memory. She saw the enterprise hit by an energy barrier. She saw a crewman with weird eyes. It was Garry Mitchel “Liz you OK?” He asked. “Yes. It could be some kind of premonition. The mass did cause the university structural integrity to be compromised as you know! It’s posible . ” She said.
“Maybe I am chasing a wild goose. I might be parinoid. “Ben said. “Bridge to captian.”krik said” go ahead Jim.”Ben said. ” Incoming message form Star fleet command. It’s admiral komack. ” Kirk said. “Have kolona transfer it to Dr. Dahner’s quarters.
He activated the screen. “Ben !”the admiral said. “Hello sir!”he said. ” We just got a message from anver prime. They report that a sub species has vanished. There is no trace. There village remains just not the people. There is no explanation”the admiral said.
