“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 .
“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.
Qurters of captain Addison mccomic.
“You ok addy?”ryian asked. She put her head on his shoders.she wore a night gowan.he had shorts and no shirt.
“No I am not ok ry!”She said. “I figured! I was not sure if you would admit it!”he said. “I am not going to pretend not this time. Are they stil alive. If so where have they bean all this time?”Addison asked.
“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.
Near by syistom
Puritan exploration and research vessel.
“This is the first sutch steller phynomina we have ever encountered. “First officer redeva said. “Your sure ? If if is not the scientific Senate wi not be pleased. I don’t want our sister ship having something to hold against us!”enginner litrell said.
“I’m excited. We have seem more in a year then Manny if our people on the home world have seen in four life times. “The energec female navigator 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.
End of part one.
Uss enterprise sickbay.
“Would you stop pocking and proding me mark?” Adison asked.”you dodged an explosive. I am going to give you a through examination. “Dr. Pipper proclamed.
“I am perfectly fine!” She said. “I would be able to make that determination if you would stay still. ” Dr. Pipper said. “I am trying ?” She said. “Try harder. This will go quicker if you cooperate!” Nurse chepel said. “Fine!”she answered.
The door opened. “You gota be more carefull!”ryian said. “I was. That was what i thought until it happened!”addison said. “Addison,the explosive is orion but it can be perchased on the black market. It was a fairly low yield. Either a warning or ment to target a few people !” Commander gioto said.
“Anyone take credet?”Ryan asked. ” three. The army of the lord and sal. Free pretora and an extreme faction of eden group. ” Gioto said.
“I take it we are not taking any of these clams seriously ?”Addison asked . ” We are not players in free pratoris crises. Eden mayby. It still does not make sance!” Smith said.
” Is this conected to the trial?” Ryan asked. “Who knows?” Addison said. ” The planet security is investigating. I am not sure i trust them. “Gioto said. “I am pretty sure i don’t! ” ryan said.
“Bridge to captain. There is a hearing tomorrow. Apearently captain kravnosky has asked to make a satement to the tribuneral ! “Palmer said. ” This could be interesting !” Ryan said.
“Captain mccomic?”the anipovnoid asked. “Ambassador keratshia !” She said. “I am pleased you were not seriously injured in the attack ! “The ambassador said.
“Your concern is touching ambassador . “She said. “I never saw it comming. You becoming commanding officer of the enterprise! It is a most enlightened turn of events. “He said. “I am glad you aprove!”she said. “Some day our two people will go to war!” The ambassador said. “We don’t chose war. If we have no chioce we will defend ourselves. “Addison said. “Believe me ! You will have no orther chioce! ” keratshia said. “Why tell me this?”she asked.
“hear we are diplomats. We can migle,have this plesent conversation. “He said. “You relish war?” She asked. “I don’t fear it ! I don’t believe it should be avoided. Good day captain. I wish you good health !”he said.
She went into the courtoom and sat down.”you ok? ” liz asked.” One of the deligates realy freked me out. I have no idea how to take it!” She said.
” This court is in order! “The judge said. The room came into order very quickly. “Captain kravnosky you have a satement for the court?”the judge asked. Addison observed the anipovnoid who seamed to somehow control the man. “I do mr. Chairman! “He said. “You may speak!” The chairman said. ” mr. Chairman. We falsified the evidence. There were no orions. We destroy the vessel believing it to be a threat. It was a civilian vessel. “The captain said.
“there is no way! The sansors log cannot be altered! ” pitcarin said. ” I know !”Addison said. “This is very unusual ! They cant believe that we would fall for this!”‘pitcarin said. “They know it won’t convince. It not about that,it not proof but an excuse. this alows the interstellar law leugue to deal with us. Every one will suport it!”she said.
” You declare to this court and to this universe that you fired on one ship . There were no orions?”the judge asked. “That is corect !” He said.
The court room went to a frenzy. There was phrases like down with ths federation and There was hang the man. Finally the court calmed down and order was restored.
“Due to the confesson,thr tribuneral may consider that in there deliberation of sentence.”the judge said.
“Alright i am going to see chairman naruka. Return to the ship ! No one is to beam down!”she ordered. ” Addy should int you return to the enterprise?”Ryan asked. “I have to go talk to the secritary. I will be fine!” She said.
Ryan was not asured. There relationship was complex. Addison was a complex person. She was a girlie girl in many ways. She also could rebuild an engine during a battle with the Klingon and romulins. She was bold. She was fearless. He was different. He was shy,more reserve. He perfered to be behind the scenes in a suport role. She scared him at times. He feared she would bite off more then she could chew.
Office of secritary general naruka.
“Any sixth grader any where knows that sansor logs cannot be altered. A fabricated file can be detected. This totally puts the ligitimacy of this leage into question. ” Addison said.
“The court is independent from the general assambly. I have no jurisdiction over it!”he said. ” Your organization is undergoing a hostile take over. It is becoming the propiganda arm for rougue planitary nations. I plead with you to do something ! “Addison said.
“I cannot help you. You will. Have to go to the juducial arm of our organization ! “He said.
“I had hopes for you mr. Secritary. I thought you were a resonible man. Your not who i thought you were. “Addison said.
“Things are prety tense?”lenore said. “We are in for all intense and perposes hostile space. While technicaly we have diplomatic rank,that is tenuous. We are on our own!” Leslie said.”you think we will make it?”she asked. He took her hand. “You will be in a production of king leer before you know it?” He said. “Ok!”she said.
” captain! We have identified several people near the explosion before it ocured. There was one who seemed to expect something. He was unphased after. Ambassador ketshaya!” Gioto said.
” He seemed to be controling the captain!”pitcarin said.” I think he is the architect of all this! “Liz said.
“I agree! We can’t get a fair trial. We call for back up,we look like the agressor!” Addison said. “I’m guessing that is what they want!” Dr. Pipler said. “I think so! Look gioto,pitkarin can you design a virus that will whipe the memory of that ship?”Addison asked. ” yes we can! It is not clear how much data they already have!” Ryan said. “Get it ready just in case! ” she ordered.”aye sir!”they said. ” what about the taiwan crew? “Dassale asked. “I wont leave them behind. We will get them out!” Addison said.
The crew was on high alert. They prepared for potential battle. They got ready.
Addison decided to get some shut eye. She fell asleep. She was inside fog. There was nothing else. “Addison ! Adison! There are monsters in the fog! I am the monsters and the fog! You know who i am! I am coming for you Addison ! It was never about the tawan. It was about you and the enterprise! Crushing the head won’t kill the body but it wil criple you. I will crush your federation without fireing a schot! ” The shadow man said.
“Who are you?”Addison asked. In the dream she wore a night gowan and was barefoot. “You know who i am !” The shadow man said. The man came out of the shadows. It was the anipovniod. She woke up.
“Addy you ok?” Ryan asked. ” Yea I’m ok. The anipovnoid. I think they have telipathic abilities . Unlike Vulcans,i don’t think they require touch. I think he can project himself. I think he is behind all of this! None of us is safe!” Addison said.
