Decon
“So the transporter won’t filter it out?”Addison asked. “Negative !” we looked into it. The microbes seam to be able to servive even in the bio filter. ” DR. Piper said. “Of course. I figured that they would adapt!”sotril said.
“Are you ready ?”piper said. “Ready as I Will ever be! ” Addison said.the transporter was activated. The two were beemed over to one of the contentment pod.
DR. Elizebeth danner was still under the influence of the microbe.she was definitely not  herself. ” the. Hendrini will prevail against you. They will defeat you!”danner said. Other crewman followed in.  They chanted pro hendrini slogans .
The transporter was activated. The patients were beemed away. They were beemed to a chamber near where Addison and sotril were.
  Addison looked her over at Liz. This was not the  she remembered. She remembered the first time she met her. She was very different then she was on this occasion.
Flashback
Adison was a different person then she was back then. She was sent to Elba two on a psych evaluation.she tried to fight it but she was overruled.
She was loud and disruptive. She wore a white v neck scrub and sandles.the force field was deactivated . a young women around the same age as Addison.”who are you?” Addison asked. “I am Elizebeth danner. I am an intern. “She said.”did I scare off doc Sherman?” she asked. ” I just arrived I figured I would say hello.the staf hoped that a fresh face could help. “Liz said.
“I am a bit of a lost cause lizzy! “She said. ” why is that?” she asked.”I don’t belong hear. Look my parents my step parents and I had a disagreement. I dropped out of the university of alpha cintetie and signed aboard a freighter.this was the only Way they could think of to stop me. They got a magistrate to agree.” addison said.
“They saw a disturbing paturn. They felt They had to act. ” danner said. “People make carer changes all the time. I wanted a change .”she said. ” you have a bright future ahead! “Liz said. “I still could on a fraghter. Fraghters made the federation !”she said. “True. What’s going on?”Liz asked.
“I love this ,you come in hear. You play the same age card. In reality your trying to get me to oppen up. To have this great epiphany ! I do not belong there. “She said.
“I am just an intern. You don’t have to think of me as a staf psychologist maybe we will become good friends. “Liz said.”don’t count on it!”Addison said.
Addison saw Liz stugiling. “Gues you were right lizzy!”Addison said. Adison hoped this could be resolved quickly.
Enterprise
L.t Palmer had been trying to find a way out of the decon chamber.there did not seam to be any. In most cases this was the last line of defense from an infectious pathogen. “Ready for the next one!”a voice said. “Procede!”piper ordered.
“I do not wish to leave!”plamer said. “You don’t really have a say In this Audrey!”piper said. The beam was activated. “They are studying. They are trying to outrun the beam!”Galloway said. “They have not figure out how to overpower the beam yet!”the doctor said.”I fear they might!”Galloway said.”we will be just as vigilant as they are!”piper said.

Yeoman Smith,Julie Ann and ensign Davis and nurse chapel were the next to be beemed off.
Flash back
“Yeoman Jones!”piper said. “Smith sir!”she said “of course my mistake! Please come in. I just want to do a basic physical. “The doctor said.
He remembered how he met nurse chapel. “I am your head nurse!”she said.”you were a researcher. What changed?”DR. Piper said. “My life goals .I realized that research was no longer what I wanted. I decided to persue medicine instead. ” chapel said. “I am glad your hear. You have come highly recommended. ” he said.”thank you. I will try not to disipoint you!”she told him. “I am not too worried!”she said.
Sickbay
“I checked and rechecked. I consulted with DR. Piper and DR. McCoy ,Hannah is not infected nor is Miranda.we suspect that the those before purity are not susceptible to it. “Dr. Mcbanga said. “That is sutch a relief!”lt. Ryian Hendricks said. “We made sure of it!”the doctor said .”that is something. I just want Addison to be ok. I want everyone in the crew to be ok. “Ryian said.’ Star fleet has some of the best minds in the federation working on this. They will figure it out!”mcbanga said. “I hope so!”he said.
Bridge
“You read the security briefing?”giito asked.”I did. “Lt. Galloway said.”I usually dissect this over coffee. Now that I am defacto captain I don’t have the time . give me a quick summery!” the acting captain ordered. “The Romulins seam to be scrambling. Rumors are that one of there swarms have gone rougue. Nothing confirmed. There are reports that the anipovnoids have increased there presence in non aligned and lower tech but still warp capable planets. They are giving overtures to either powers that don’t like us. ” he said.
“More fun !”the security officer turned captain said.
“There was an explosion in a remote syistom. Reports are a probe of some kind was near by. It might be a rumor.that’s about it!”Galloway said.
“Incoming massage. It is for lt. Hendricks.it is from Edward mccomic!”Leslie reported.”you can take it in the conference room!”the acting captain said. “Do I have to ?”ry said.
He knew it would not be complimentary . he understood where his. Farther in law would be coming from.

Hendrini vessel
“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.
Enterprise
Bridge
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.
Qurters of captain mccomic
“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.

Bridge
“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.
“Klasic said.
“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”

The siren call part three

“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!”

“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.

“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! This is surely a trap! You cannot take us further into What is hostile space!”Egreer said.
