The jouney part four

Earth

“Ed! Ed i cant find addy!” silva said.edward ran to her room. “Dad her bear is gone!” gracie her step sister said. “Where would she have gone?”silvia asked.

A few days later she contacted them.”addison! We have been woried sick about you. Where are you?”mrs Mccormick asked. “I am at echo base. I am going to sign on to a freighter.  “She said.

“Addy come home!”edward said.”i want to go out into space.  I am not getting into star fleet. This way i can still go out to space. “Addison said.

“Captain malory said he could tutor yoy. Many of your teachers want to help. You can get in. You could always join as an enlisted person then become an officer later. Please dont do this? “Silvia said.

“I can get out there now. I can do this. “Addison said “this is impulsive.  You have not thought this though .”Edward said. “I have to do this. I am doing this. I talk to you as soon as you can. I love you. “She said. The screen faded.

The two were very woried for her.  They wish that she had not gone off on her own. There was not much they could do about that now.

Later

“Dad. The freighter addison was on. It was destroyed. She is ok. She is at medical base murcy three. “Edward jr said. “Oh my!”silvia said. The two hugged.

Star fleet academy

Spock looked around the campus. He was different from other new cadets.  Manny were astonished. Many were overcome by just being hear. Spock did not feel that way. It was a new experience but it hardly produced an emotional response. Spock did anticipate being at the academy.  He found being hear agreeable.

“Hey! Welcome to the academy pleab!”an uper classman said. The cadet huged him. “You pretend to be friendly.  Yet yoy put a sign that instructs people to kick me. Not only is your behavior showing you to be two faced.  It is unbecoming a star fleet officer. It is reminiscent of romulons. That and it is not very original. “Spock told him.

“If you will excuse me!” cadet finnegin said. The man quickly walked again. If spock were a human he would be quite anoyed. Spock was not supportive of it. He. Hoped that finegin was not representative of all cadets.

His grandfarther was one of the first vulcans to interact with humans. His grandfarther strugled to find a way to interact with humans. Humans had changed quute a bit sence vulcans and humans had first met. His grandfarther witnesed that transformation first hand. Some humans like finnegin stil had rough edges.

“I am sory that happened.  We are not all like mr. Finegin. “A female cadet said. “I did not think that . i am cadet Spock. “He said. “Leila kolami.”she said.

“What is your major course of study?”spock asked.”botony. I wanted to go to the university of alpha cinterie.my dad is an admiral in star fleet. He wanted me to go to the acedemy. I decided to at least do a tour in star fleet. ” she said.

“You may decide to make a carer of iy in star fleet. “Spock said.  “Dont count on it. I am not sure i am cut out for military life. I know star fleet is not a military orginization.”she said.  “I understand.” spock said.  “Maybe i will stic around for a while. We will see. Time will tell!”she said. “Indeed. “Spock said.

Alien vessel

Bridge

“I have lost the craft excelentcy. ” the science officer said “it has to still be inside the asteroid field? Enhance the sansors. “The ships prefect krutahn ordered.”we have sir. “Science officer druvet said. “Find that ship!” krutahn incisted. “Yes sir. Right away. “The science officer told him.

The science officer and his staff got right to work. They tried to do what the commanding officer wanted them to do. They knew failure was not wise.

The shartle neared the ship. It went inside. It went into a hanger bay. The craft went to a birth. The shartle activated the landing scruts.”docking acheved. You do know this could be highly unwise. “Spock said. “I am quite aware if that . i did not see any other choice. “Addison said. “I can understand that. I do think you made the right decision.  “Spock said.

The two got up from the pilots and co pilot’s chair in the cockpit. The two headed for the hatch. “Lets go see what we have got. “Addison sugested. Spock agreed. They headed for the egress.

They entered the hanger. “The ship has wciut vesels. Fighters flyers.a scout ship. I believe this may have been some kind of heavy crussers.”Spock said. “It may have been on some kind of deep space asignment. “Addison said.

“It may be a scout ship for a later invasion. “Spock sugested. “I thought i was suposed to be the cynical one. “Addison remarked. “I was mearly pointing out a n alternative not previously mentoned. “Spock answered. “I know. I apreciate that.  Your right. It could. I gues i would like to think that worlds venture out for more then just potential conquest. We do need to consider everything. ” Addison said.

They continued to move out. Spock took out his tricorder. He scaned the hanger. “I am not detecting anything out of the ordinary. “Spock said.

They exited the hanger deck.they entered the coridor. They found a terminal. Her tricorder scaned the computor. She tried to acess the ship’s information.

The tri corder tried to translate the infornation. “The langrege is similer to kizinti 325. “She said.

“You can read kizinti 325?”spock asked. “The freighter i served on did not always follow fedetation law. Sometimes we delt in blockade zone. K325 is a trade language in thw the non aligned sector. ” she said. “It could be significant that this ship used a language similer to a break away klingon repiblic. “Spock said.

“It could.  This ship is not in the galatic data base. “Addison said.”i find that unusual as well.  “Spock said.

A large robot moved in. “What are you doing hear?” the robot said. The robot scanned them. Addison ordered no interference.  Spock complied.

“Subject human. Femalr. Cutenly carying off spirng. Offspirng female. “The robot said. “Ryan and sarrk are going to be outnumbered. “Addison said.

“Subject vulcan human hybred. Male. “Robot said. “You know of our races?”addison asked. “My memory banks contain information regarding your species. “The robot said.

” where did this ship come from?” Addison asked. “This ship orignated from far away. Form a star syistom known as the dracole. This vessel was one of many ships lunaced to incestigate the glaxsy. Vessel sent to colect ibformation then one day transmit data to hime world. “The robot said. “Is there no crew abored?”spock  asked. “Crew is in syspended animation.  “Take us to them. “Addison said.

“Wete they soposed to revived at some point?”addisob asked. “Yes revival was to occur twenty ofyour years ago. Revival did bot occur. Do not know why. I was reactivated once your craft borded. “The robot aniunced.

“I wounder why the crew was not reactivated.  “Addison remarked.”i am conducting diagnostic on all systems. Atempting to asertain what went went wrong.  “The robot said.

The team entered the cryonic unit.the door opened. Spock,Addison and the robot entered the unit. Addison scaned the unit with the tri corder. “I am reading life signs. ” addison reported. Addison looked inside. She saw aliens resembled klingons.

Alien vessel

Bridge

“Sir i have located the startle.  It located a derelict vessel.  It entered the vessel. ” the science officer reported. “Plot intercept course. I want that ship. “Khutan said. “Course plotted and engaged “the helm said.

The ship went to warp. It headed for the vessel. The ship headed for the unknown ship with weapons blazing. Shileds screen and weapons were fully activated and ready to go. The warship neared the orther ship.

Alternate reality

U.s.s enterprise

“We located the shartle.it was fully destroyed.  Im sory sir. “Kolona said.  “Thank you for telling me . “ryan herington said. “I wanted you to hear it from me. “She said. “I appreciate that. ” ryan said. Ryan held his kids close.

End of part four.

Next up

Addison and spock revive the crew of the myaterious ship. The hostiles show up and open fire.

The jouney part two

“Commander’s log,lt. Commander spock and i are on bored a shartle.while on route to the enterprise, an unknown ship has just entered the star syistom. They are heading right for us. “Addison said in her log. 

“The vessel is traveling at warp 8.9. It is armed with five photon toroedo banks. I am reading five phaser banks. The vessel is renforced by a material i do not recognize.  “Spock said. 

“It does not match with any known ship in the fedetation data base.”Addison said. “Should i atempt to hail the vessel?” spock asked. “Do it.”she said. 

Spock activated the com chanel. “Attention incoming vessel. This is the scout vessel Galileo.  We represent the united federation of planets. We request you please contact us. “The vulcan said.

The warahip mantained course for the shartle. “No response. “Spock said. “I am moving us away from the unknown.”addison said 

The shartle tried to move away from the unknown combat ship. “The ship has powered up its tractor beam.”spock said. 

“They get us in there tractor beam,its over for us. “Addison anounced. “That is a reasonable supposition commander. “Spock said. 

Addison knew how to think in her feet.  Her strategy was to keep moving. Stay in the game. Font give up. Move in baby steps. Dont give the oponent time to catch there breath. Wage a battle by slow attrition.  

The shartle flew into the ship’s main deflector dish. The shartle used the deflector to push off. The shartle used the inertia to generate more speed. The shartle went to the sship’s wall and bounced off. 

The shartle kept an interesting maneuver comnander.”spock said “acts of desperation mr. Spock. I refuse to yield. We cannot allow ourselves to be captured by these people. Who knows there intent. Thid could be a scouting party for a larger invadion or they could want our orgons. I am not keen on either. ” addison said. “Nor am i commander. I perfer my organs intact. “Spock answered. 

“Why spock was that a joke?”addison asked. “No it is a statement of fact.  I assure you that it is quite accurate.  “Spock said. “I agree with you whole heartily. “Addison responded.

The combat ship flew up to the shartle at high warp. It attempted to swoop down on the smal craft. 

Addison tried to acess the computer. “Acess the helm from your station.  I have an idea. “She said.  “You got it commander. Why do i think that your about to do something inadvisible and extremely dangerous? ” the vulcan asked. “I would like to say your way off but your not. “She told him. “I had a feeling that was the case. “The vulcan told him. 

The shartle emited an experimental pulse. The pulse hit the warship. The ship was temporily stuned.addison took advantage of the situation.  The scout craft flew inside the vessel. It bounced off the shields again.

The craft was catapulted away from the combat ship.  Addison emited a second pulse. The shartle kept going. 

“Are you ready for another desperate act?”addison asked. “I gues that i have to. “Spock said.”that is not quite the vote of confidence i was hoping for but ok. I gues it will have to surfice. “She said.

The ship was able to overcome its temporary paralysis. The combat ship neared the shartle.  The shartle apeared to be two ships. The ships went in oposite direction. 

The ship was not sure which ship was the real one. The real craft used that to its adventage. The craft tried to get away.  

“Spocj find me a nebula or an asteroid field!”she ordered.  Spock scaned the navigation program.he tried to find a safe harbor. A place to hopefully get away from the persuing warship. He knew he did not have a lot if time.  The next few secconds could determine rather or not they sucesfully get away or not. 

“I am detecting an asteroid field. I am ploting course for the field.”spock said. “Sounds good. “She said.

The shartle headed for the field. The ship neared the craft. The ship got the tractor beam ready to activate.addison took the shartle to its limits and beyound. 

The shartle went into the asteroid field. The shartle kept going. “Holding position.  “Spock said. “Lets go in futher into the field.”addison sugested.

The ship went further into the asteroid belt. The shartle then held position.  “For the moment they are not persuing! “Spock said. “They wont give up. They will wait. We brought ourselves more time. We now need to come up with a plan. “Addison said. “Agreed.  “Spock said. 

Past

Vulcan 

“My farther does not aprove of me?”a ten year old spock said. “Spock he values logic. He is from a noble family on vulcan. The sarek family has been actively involved in government service. There is pressure for all in this family to excell. You have grown Spock.  You have marured. You will bring hornor to him. I know you will. You will brung honor to your family and to vulcan.  I know he vailures you in his way. He has to be harsh on you. Hr has to push you. He knows you will live up to your potential. You will exceed his expectations “his morther amanda said.

“What if i do not morther.  What if i fall short?” the young Spock asked. “I know you wont. You do not give up. You do not accept failure. The kass wan ordeal.you suceded because you did not give up.dont give up spock. Dont give in to mediocrity.  I know you wont.”she said.

Sarek ovetheard the conversation.he took it all in. He then returned to what he had been doing. 

Earth

“Addy stil out there?”Edward asked.”she would not be our addy is she did not.  To me they are just stars. Not to her. I will never be able to keep her on earth will i” silvia Mccormick asked. “No. No matter where she goes she will always call hear home. This will be always be her home.  “Edward said. 

Later

“Mom does not want me to go to space does she?”addison at age 8 asked. ” she wants you hear. You can’t blame you. She wants you safe. Space is dangerous. “Edward said.

“I know. It is also wounderous. I have to see it.”she said. “You have the dream of stars. Your mom is proud of you. She knows your destened to go out there. She will always worry about you. Promise you will always come back to us. We never want to replace your biological parents. We want you to always be a part of our family.  “He said. “I wont. I will always come back.”she told them. 

The shartle waited.  The shartle had to stay alive. They had to endure.  Could they?

End of part two. 

The challenge part three

Uss enterprise
Sotril gave the two a tour of the ship. “This is engineering ! This is lt. Commander nils pitcarin chief enginer!”sotril said.
“You served on the welington?” Tisek asked. ” I try to forget my time on that s”hip! It was a death trap!”he said. “My cousign storel was a jr enginer. He discribed his time there as beyond arduous!” Tisek said.
“Sounds like him. We become prety good friends . At first i thought he was a little more personible then a recilimation system and he thought i made a Klingon look tame! We made peace evenualy!” The chief said.
“He is chief enginer now on the Lexington !” Storel said. “Glad to hear it!”he said. “We should probably get going. Thank you chief”sotril said.
Qurters of Addison
Addison was waring a civilian isue black sleveless dress. ” She ever mention she was engaged or even was involved ?”Addison asked. “Never! She keeps to herself !”liz said. “I know but every one knows i am maried with two kids. Its part of who i am. I can’t believe in the time i known her,nothing !” Addison said. “She is tight liped even for a vulcan. I just don’t get it!” Addison said. “We all navigate life differently!” Liz said.
“Do i look ok?”ryian said. “You look great but i might be biased. “Addison said. “I hope it is not too hot on Vulcan. First time i almost passed out!”ryian said. “Should be interesting !”liz said.”yes indeed!”she said.
Planet Vulcan
Villege of shikahr
Addison had hanah in a baby carier. Ryian held little sarek’s hand. Ryian rang the bell. Sarek and amanda were wating for hin. She made the Vulcan silute. Many non Vulcans found it difficult to do but Addison was determined to learn.
“Peace and long life ambassador !” Addison said. “Live long and prosper Addison ! It is highly agreable to see you again ! ” sarek said. “Its great to see you too. It has been too long!”amanda said.
“Greating uncle sarek!” His nameshake said. Sarek picked him up. “Seing him brings back memories of my two boys. “Sarek said. “Two?” Addison said.
” Yes i have another son beside spock. He folwed a path orther then one if surek. He was banished from Vulcan never to return. I am not sure why i think of him now! “Sarek said. “I can’t imagine spock as a child . I asumed he was born an adult!”Addison said. “It seemed that way to me!”amanda said.
Dinner
“So the whole federation is a talking about the fact that romulpns share a resembolence to Vulcans!” Sarek said. “It has created quite a stir!”amanda said. “I figured. I was griled by a hundred admirals and the entire federation bureacracy! “She said.”the federation council has hevily debated it. There are legends of mass exodas from our world folowing surek’s reforms! I suspect the romulons are desendents of one of those groups. There manorism fit. “Sarek said.
“Do you think some day we will be able to develop an understanding between our two peoples?” Addison asked. “Perhaps . In time. Right now they seam interested in conquest ,expansion. I am not sure we have a clear enough picture of them! We have only seen one side of them. We have only seen there military ,surely there are other facets to there society !” He said.
Uss enterprise
The prefect decided to return home. Tisek had wanted to be alone with his betrothed. He wanted to catch up with her. ” Sotril how has thou faired sense i last saw you!”he asked . “I am doing well! I am in good health and contribiting to the ship in a productive mannor!”she said. “I have never doubted that. You excel in whatever you do. You would have it no orther way. I find that admirible. ” She said. “I understand you are are going to chair the archeology and anthopology department at the Vulcan science academy ?” She asked. “Yes profesor tikarm has been apointed to the upper house and wants to devote his time to that. It is a great hournor. I was not expecting the offer. I stil am planing to go on an expedition on tranimede. I might take some of my students !”he said.
“I wondered about that ! You have wanted to go there for some time! It would be a shame to have to abandon that!”she said. “Indeed. I almost turned down the apointment but the elders were wiling to let me go. This is considerable interest in the expedition. “He said.
“I too have interest in the expedition! “She said. “I find it quite agreible that you consented to our mating sotril. I was beginning to think that you would never say yes. “She said.
“I never rush into anything ! “”She said. ” I know that. I apreciate that about you. I too try to chose my path carefully !” He said. “I know that. I admire you for that!”she said. ” You are making the corect decision by uniting with me ! “He said. “Of course!” She said.
  Later on little sarek was playing on the floor. Sarek and Addison were talking. “I heard about the incident with miss cransaw! ” sarek said. “It was not how i planed it to go!”she said. ” it must have been taxing on you!” He said. “I am fine ambassador ! I have moved on!” She asured him. “I don’t believe you on this. I know thee well enough to know that’s not true!” He said. “I am suprised to hear this from you!” She said. “I have to say it because no one else will. I outrank thee. I have nothing to lose by pointing it out!” He said.” True!  Ok yes it took its toll on me. I am not totally out of it! “She said.
“Though i have mastered control of emotion far better then many of my contemporaries ,i would have difficult time with this were it me. I can’t imagine someone who does express emotion to deal with this!” He said. “Its not easy!” She said.
” How are you doing with what happened?”amanda asked. “Oficialy I’m taking it in stride. Unoficialy i am a total wreck. The worse part of it ,when we thought they had been killed,addy did not want to talk to me.she feard i would be mad at her for her decision. The truth is i don’t know that i would have made a different chioce. There was no right answer. I was not interested in blame. I feard things would never be the same between us. We needed eachother but i don’t know if we could do it! “He said.
“You two are perfect for eachorther! Don’t doubt that. “Amanda said. “I won’t!”he said.
Enterprise
“You have been hear the whole time ?”reily asked. “I am doing some reserch!” Tim said. “Did you find what your looking for?” Keven asked. “I think i did!” He said.
  After reterning to the enterprise,Addison went to the bridge to check on things. ” Addison may i talk to for a minute ?”he asked. “Sure! Lets go to the brefing room!”she sugested.
They went to the confrence room.”i understand you know ambassador sarek?”tim said. “I do!”she said. “I understand he is traned in Vulcan martial arts. “He said. “He is one of the most skilled why?”she said. “I was hoping he would train me! “Tim said. “Train you? “She asked. ” i intend to challenge tisek for the right to marry sotril!”tim said.
