Preservers and the preserved part three 

The captain went back into the command center. He tried not to show signs of fatigue. He tried to communicate strength. Even though he was not feeling particularly strong right now. He went into the command center. “What do you got?” The captain asked. ” We have discovered a log within the teleportation system. We have been able to discover where the rinsed have gone. “The security chief said. 

“Why do I think that I am not going to like this? ” The captain said. “Your not . We have traced the teleportation to a large vessel. I believe it was designed as a cargo vessel. The problem is that the ship is near the planet trebious.” The Orion chief said. “Oh no! “Noris said. “What’s trebious?”yeoman Smith asked. ,”It is a planet in the nazaka imperium.” Kalera said. “Did the nazaka abduct these people?” Terasha said.” I am not sure they did. This hardly seams there style. ” Kalera said. 

“I suspect someone is using nazaka space. Trebious in in there outor fronter. It is possible that the nazaka does not know they are hear. ” Norris said. “Who? Why would someone want to abduct a sub species ? It makes no sense.”terasha said.

“Your thinking like a Klingon Terry. This sounds like the preservers.”Norris said.”I thought we filled out the preservers?”Dr. Dahner said. “I do t think this is the work of the preservers. What is this was the work of devotees?”Norris suggested. 

“Your thinking the one true path? ” Ryan asked. “It’s sound like them.”Norris asked.”why abduct people?”Dr. Piper asked.”think of it mark. You revere aliens who subducted minorites group facing danger of extinction or near extinction at least culteraly. They rescured these people. What if the o.t.p wanted to replace the preservers. What if they wanted to become the preservers. Imitation is the best form of art. What if they believe they can become preservers.” Norris suggested.

“These people are not endangered.they are well treated.they are happy .”Elizabeth said. “These people don’t care about such thing. They are not totally rational. They believe in ushering new order by destroying the old order. Anvar prime is a symbol of that old order. If successfully they will do this more often. It will cause dear chaos. With the gateway technology they could be unstoppable. ” Norris said. 

Anvar city.

“You believe that a preserver cult is involved?” The president asked.”yes mr. President. This fully matches there style.”Norris said. “They want to preserve them?”the minister of security asked. “Not quite. They are not nearly as benevolent as those they want to emulate. The one true path is a cult in every definition of the word.they see things the way they want to see it.they want to spread chaos. They believe that the new order will rise from the ashes of the old. A kind of post apocalyptic rissing. ” Norris said. 

“What now ?” The minister of security asked.” We are going to try to retrieve the rinsed. ” Norris said.”in nazaka space?” The prime Minister asked. “We are working on that. ” Norris asked.

Command center 

“Your not serious? You want to teleport the enterprise? Into enemy space?”the Orion chief said.” It would take too long to travel to nazaka space by conventional warp drive. Besides the nazaka don’t like us or any other species that are not them. ” Norris said. “Look captain.with alldue respect I barely understand this technology. Not only do you want me to use it you want any me to transport a starship. My ship. My pride and joy. We have no idea if this is even possible. ” The chief said. 

“We have to do this. We cannot let what could be a huge travisty if it succeeds. Whatever happened it could alter the entire develooment of this culture. We have to act! ” Norris said. ” I need to study this. This is a colossally bad idea. ” Hallak said. ” You have a better on?”Norris asked. “Well no. I know you want to help these people. I know you will be some kind of cosmic super hero. Your a starship captian. Your mortal. You have limitations. So does your ship. This is unknown technology. Your rushing in where angels fear to tread. I implore you to slow down. ” The chief said.

“I would point out that if we are caught by the nazaka,we would be fired on. This would be interpreted as an act of war.”the security chief remarked. “I know that. I have to do this. The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few or the one. ” Norris said. ” I can’t talk you out of this can I?” ” Hallak asked. “No I can’t. ” The captian said. 

“I object to this in the strongest terms.”the chief said. ” Your objection is noted. It will be in the log. ” The captian said. ” Understood!” The chief said. “Get things in motion. “Norris said. 

Nazaka space

There was a massive colony ship.the ship was designed to transport colonies. The vessel was protected by several combat ships. The ships were all procured from other races. The ships were retired. The ships were retrofitted with advanced weapons. 

Command ship

Bridge

“Excellentcy! Norris has discovered the gateway. ” His chief henchman breket said. “Very good! “Quter said. “You said he would come. “Durona said. “I knew he would come. He is a smart man well to a point. ” Quter said.”will he really risk coming into hostile space?” Breket asked. “, He will come. His since of duty. His sender of honor will force him to act. Even if is a bad idea and it is. We must prepare. I have so looked froward to this. This is the begining. “Quter said. 

Colony ship. 

“Why are we hear?” A young girl asked. “I don’t know my child.”a vilege elder said. ” I have not seen anyone. ” Qudok said.”someone has to be running this ship. ” A women said. ” This does not appear to be anvar.” Qudok said. ” “No it does not.” The elder said. “Who would want to abduct us?” The female said. “I don’t know. ” The elder said. 

U.ss.s enterprise 

Conference room. 

 “Your sure that they are near trebious?”admiral komack asked. “Yes sir I am. “Norris said. ” This is a bad idea Ben. This could start a war with the nazaka. Something we want to avoid. The galaxy is still liking it’s sounds form the mass crises. ” The admiral said.”I know that sir. If the rinsed are moved it could have a lot of repecaucutions for the rinsed and the anvar.we don’t know how they will respond to enviormentle differentces. If this succeeds they may try again and again. This could have a huge impact on the galaxy. We have to nip this in the bud now. ! ” The captian said. ” Tread lightly captian. We don’t want an incident. ” The admiral said.”I will sir. ” The captian said. 

Bridge 

“Captian on the bridge !”Smith said. “What did the admiral day?”Mia bolt asked.”he did not tell me not to. He did not give a ringing endorsement. I think he knows something has to be done. ” Norris said.”I fear the damage may have already been done. If they are returned to anvar,it could have already altered there development as a culture. The impact may not be fully known for a generation or two”Liz said. “We have to do something. They are not safe as long as they are in o.t.p custody.after they are free,they can figure the implications of the incident.”Norris said. 

” This is going to happen then?” Dr. Piper asked.”yes it is mark.”the captian said. The crew got ready to leave. The crew was tense. They trusted the captain. They all knew that something was up with him. Norris has acted strangely for a few weeks. They did not know what to do. They did not know how to deal with it. Hopefully it would not become worse. 

Bridge 

“We are ready. The command center is manned by anvar techs. They are ready.” The chief engineer said. “Very good. “Noris said. “They are ready to activate the gateway on your order sir!”the Klingon com tech reported. “Order all decks to standby.”noris said. ” All decks standing bysir!”the female Klingon said. “Take us out of orbit Mia!”the captian ordered. Kirk and bolt took the ship out of orbit.”we are clear sir!”Kirk reported. “Kolona give them the clear message to proceed.” The captian ordered. 

The com officer sent the message. The techs in the command center activated the button. The gateway opened. The enterprise was teleported.the enterprise was taken somewhere else. Within nazaka space the enterprise appeared. 

Quterss vessel

“Sir! I am detecting an energy signal. It is the enterprise!” Durona said. “Very good. I knew he would come. He could not resist! He would come after me. Intercept. “Quter ordered. 

Enterprise 

“Captian we are in nazaka space. We are near trebious.”spock asked. ” It worked and we are in one peace.”hallak said. “You doubted this?,”Mia asked. “Well yes.” The Orion said.” I have located a colony ship and several escorts.the escorts match vessels known to be used by the o.t.p. “the security chief reported. ” intercept !” The captian ordered. Mia plotted an intercept course. The enterprise headed to the ships.

Quter ship

Bridge

“They have plotted an intercept of there own.”durona said. “Very good! I can’t wait to renew our aqaintences captian!”quter said. The enterprise and the other ships neared each other. As soon as the enterprise was in fireing range the enterprise fired.

Nues chapter three

Terisha had been in and out of consciousness for quite a while. She woke up. She had no idea where she was. She remembered being beamed away. She has no idea who had beamed her out.
She saw that she was Waring a blue night gown. She guessed that she was either on a federation starship or starbase.
She listened for the hum of warp drive. When she heard it,she came to the conclusion that she was on a starship. For some reason being on a federation ship had a sound distinct from a Klingon ship. She was not restrained.
She needed more information. She had no idea how she got hear. The whole thing made no sense. She should have been absorbed . not that she was complaining but as a scientist it was perplexing. She believed something perplexing was important . while her superiors might not put any stock in science or investigations she did.
She looked around.she saw kirona the com tech.she was resting.she was also clad in the awful sickbay atire.
“Hello!”she said. She spoke the Teran laungege commonly called English. The medical staf was startled. “Your awake!”the man who steamed to be a senior medical officer commented. “That apears obvious. “She said.
“Get the commander. “The doctor ordered. An orderly nodded. “Where am I?” she asked. “You are onbored the federation medical ship murcy. We are on the federation side of the neutral zone. I am doctor jubulio mcbanga. ” he said.
“I am terisha obk.I am a science tech attached to Klingon monitor post 12. Well I was before it was destroyed or whatever happened.”she said.
“We observed what science command is calling an obsorbtion.”mcbanga said. “That is as good a term as any. “She said.
Within a few minutes,the door swished opened.she saw a man in a gold uniform.she knew that it was the uniform of a command officer.then she recognized him.
“Oh my ! Jess!” she said. “Tery !”the man said. The man was lt.commander Aaron jeshop. “You two know each other?”the doctor asked.”yes we do.  What’s going on?”he asked.
“It literally came out of no where! There was nothing and then what started as a smal dot. It got bigger then expended. I assume you got the information I sent.”she said.
“We did. Star fleet was reluctant to believe it. I knew it was from you. You are a patriot to qonos but not necesily to those in power. “The commander said .
“I knew that high command would resort to a military solution. I am not convinced that this is a military issue at least nit totally. Don’t expect a military regime to think in method other then military. “She told him.
“You must have a theory on what this is!”he said.”I think it is from another dimension. I have no proof either way.I pulled this out of my back Side jess.I think it is a life form. It is a plant or is it sentient.I don’t have a clue. “Terisha said.
“I am ad your ok. Today was not a good day to die!”he said. “I am with you on that one. ” she said.
“I assume that this was probably not personal. That it expended into Klingon space because that was where it was. “He commented.”that is my theory. I don’t have information for or against.”she said.
“Is the mass still expanding?”she asked. “We don’t know yet. We ate trying to find out. The kdf used a protomatter device to stop it. It has done something. “Jesop said. “Great! I am not surprised. I wish they had asked me first. Of course they would not. “She said.
“We have offered to help. “Mcbanga said. “Let me gues. “There has been an incident but we do not require assistance. Obey treaty stipulations. End of transnison!”she said. “Prety much. “Jess said. “What will star fleet do ?”she asked.”we are gathering data. Star fleet is setting up a task force hear. We are limited right now.”he told her.
“I will do what I can. Please put me on the team. You know I am interested in the truth. “She said. “I have already had you on the team.as soon as you are. Cleared by doc mabaga you can come to the flagship!”he said . “excellent!”she said.
Elba two
Dr. Elizebeth danner was looking over patients. This was not an official session just her making her rounds before she ended her shift. She came to a patient she had developed a friendship with. Clad in a Gray one peace uniform with a device that monitored her vital signs and contained information on her.
“Adison ! How are you tonight?”Elizebeth asked. “Liz the mass it’s hear. I told everyone. That would not believe me. The mass is hear!”Addison said. “Addy there is no mass. I thought we agreed on that. “Liz said.
“It is not a delusion Liz! I thought it was. I am not crazy! Its real. It is hear. “Addison proclaimed.
“Is this because your nearing a hearing with the bored of mental health?”Liz asked. “Liz can you please believe me?”she said. “This is irrational addie! There is np such thing as matter that devowers space!”Liz said. “How can you be sure? There is much we don’t understand about space. We have only been doing this for a couple centuras now. “Addison said.
“You have .made do much progress!”Liz said.”it’s read Liz! I did not make it up. I am not insane. Star fleet should reinstate me!”she said.”there is never going to happen !”she said.
“You never were my friend were you? What is it the more people you cured,the more points you got towards a free trip to rissa?”Addison asked.
“That’s unfair! You know I am your friend.I can’t let you destroy your life. I Will see you later!”Liz said. “If your so sane Liz. Why do you have dreams about delta Vega?”Addison asked. “I told you that I’m confidence. “She said. “You should go!”she said. Danner left.
Office of governor Corry.
“Patcient mccomic seams to be having a relapse. “Liz said. “Is m sorry to hear that. She seemed to be on the road to recovery. “The governor said. “She claims to have knowledge of some kind of mass that is eating up space!”she said.
“You said  mass!”he said. He looked spooked. “This is an old delusion of her part Donald. “Liz said. “You have not not watch the news?”he asked. “No I am not one to follow current events. Too busy I gues. “She admitted.
“Something we can’t identifie Something some refer to as a mass has transformed a remote part of the Klingon empire. The Klingon tried to stop it with protomatter.they. claim that it has been contained. There is some doubts “Cory said.
“I had no idea!”Liz said. “We have to inform star fleet right away . “Corry said. Elizebeth quickly agreed.
Star fleet command
Office of admiral komack
“Your sure about this?”the admiral asked. “She had detailed information on the mass .it lines up with the sansor datta we have!”governor Corry said. “How did she come to this information?”the admiral asked.”we are not sure. A few years ago she dissapered in an uncharted area. She was assumed killed. She was discovered after a mounth . I have a detailed report !”the governor said.
“Alright! I will look it over .I want her on the team. We need all of the resources we can get. I want you to have someone in your staf to acompony her. “The admiral said. “I know just the person. “The governor said.
He knew she might be reluctant to accept but he believed she would go along with it.
While the mass started to grow again. The mass expansion was very slow. It had resumed. The mass was nit going to be detered.it would return. This was definitely not over. It had only begun.
Romulan space
The tholien vessel had been carefull not to be seen . the vessel had done everything it could to get to the source of the disturbance. The vessel utilized any way it could to get where it needed to go. The vessel had anilized the Klingon side of the mass. Now the ship had arrived at the romulan side.
The tholien vessel arrived. The ship scanned the mass. It was only slightly into romulan space. He believed that would change.
Doctor turelga scanned the area. He took several readings. He got some interesting readings. “Warning. Incoming vessels. Rihansu warlords. “The computer voice announced. The choline ship tried to evade the romulan vessels. The birds of prey opened fire on the tholien ship. The tholien ship dodged the hits.
One of the disruptor hit the mass.it triggered the mass. The mass seam to come on.the mass headed for the ships.
The tholien vessel went to high warp. The vessel went to maximum warp and did not look back.
The romulqn ship’s were hit. The fleet was absorbed.one of the ships was pushed away. Several ships did manage to get away.
The mass was now on the move. Now it was heading Into the heart of the romulon empire.

“Sir! We just have reports from the romulan neutral zone. We have a New pronlem. “The aid said.

Notes

Admiral komack appeared in “a mock time! ” he was referenced in this side of paradise. An alternate universe version of the admiral appeared in “star trek ” 09.
Dr. Elizabeth daner was the psychiatrist who fell victim to the energy barier just as Gary mitchel had. She appeared in “where no man had gone before”
Elba two appeared in “whom God’s destroyed” as did governor Corry.

 

Paridise and perdition part four

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.
Enterprise
“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.
Palymra
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.

Paridise and perdition part three

Palmyra
Captain’s office
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.

The challenge part 7

“Captain’s log ,all of the races i have encountered ,the race i least understand are vulcans. A race wholy devoted to logic and reason. There is much rituels as well.  They don’t quite fir into the box we expect. ”
” i find the concept of a fight to the death ilogical for several reasons. Apearently this combat had not been used for cencurias.it did remain on the book as it were. Of course someone like lt. Mathews would find it. He would see a solution where orthers would find an obsticle! ”
Private chamber
“Alright! Don’t play fair. This is a strugal for servival. There are no rulls. Endure!”sarek said.
“Ok “he said. “Remember your traning. Oh he will be overconfident use that to your advantage. Don’t trust him . He may offer to help,don’t accept. He is your enemy. He will be acting on instinct only. ” Sarek said.
“However this turns out,thank you!”tim said. “Of course. Its seams a bit counterproductive but live long and prosper! “Sarek said. “I will try!” He said.
Outside Vulcan shrine
“Do you aprove of all this addy?” Liz asked. ” rather i do or not is not the isure. I think tim had to do this. He would always wounder. “Adison said.
” Its kinda romantic ! “Yeoman said. ” romance written by Shakespeare perhaps ! “Gioto said. “Love meats kobiosho meru. He probably won’t win. He dies either sotril maries tisic any ways or she stays a defecto widow. “Ryian said.
“Life does not always makes sense . Sometimes it does not turn out the way we think it should. “Addison said.
“How are you going to write this in your report to star fleet?”dr. Pipper asked. “I have no idea!”addison said.
“Can you ever trust sotril. She could stop all this?”gioto asked.”i am not sure. We will cross that energy barier when we get there i supose!” Adison reaplied.
T’pau the planitary high priest was excorted on a cart folowed by several prelates. It stoped in the center of the shrine
“The union of tironek tisic and soriana sotril has been chalanged by tim mathews. While no non Vulcan has ever challenge a mating,it is aceptible under our laws and tradition.  Your challenge has been acepted.there will be no interference !”she said.
Tim was given a large cerimonial weapon. It resembled a large batering ram. Tisic had one as well. T’pau motioned for the fighting to begin.
Tim got the first swipe in. He struck tisik’s midsection. Tisic seamed angery. He went for tim’s head. Tim ducked and tried to strike him.
Tisic used his weapon to deflect it. Tim tried to thrust his weapon against tisic and disarm the Vulcan. Tisic let out a loud grunt and pushed tim with his all of his might.
Tim was pushed out of the way.he was propelled to a wall like structure. His weapon also fell on him. He was bleading in several spots. Tisic was stil perfecty intact.
Sotril watched the event but did not react. She was stone faced the whole time. She showed no emotion. She just wached in a stoic manner.
There was a time she experimented with emotion. Tim came home and caught her laughing. “Did i just cross into an alternative universe ?”tim asked.”look i really don’t want to talk about it!” She said.
“Ok ! I am fine with that! Its me! You don’t have to explain anything. “He said. “Thank you. I don’t know. I am sure i am cut out for this logic thing. I don’t know!”she said. He huged her. “Whatever you decide i am with you 120 percent! “Tim said. “I know that!” She said.
Today that side of her was gone.now she was all logic,all reason. That was what she wanted.
Tisic took his weapon and ran for tim. Tim picked up his weapon and tried to deflect the blow. Tisic and tim went though a series of clashe’s.
Tisic threw tim’s weapon far away from him. Tim’s first instinct was to try to retreve the weapon. He decided instead to ram tisic.
He try to power drive the Vulcan. He shoved him to the ground. Tisic using his weapon tore a part of his uniform. Tisic threw tim back.
Tisic was about to try to crush tim’s head. Tim pushed the weapon. The two struggled for control of the weapon. Tisic gained the uper hand and threw him on to the ground.
Tim retreted as he atempted a swipe. He tried to get to his weapon. Tisic anticipated that and tried to stop him.
In the past they had not been enemies. They were not friends but neither wished the orther ill. That had all changed.
“Are you and sotril an item?”tim asked. “No i have tried on several ocasions. She has rebufed all of my entreties. “He said. “You have known her on a long time?”tim asked. “Yes i have. We pratically grew up together !”he said.
Tisic seamed to have the uper hand. He did most of the whole event. This did not detour tim. He would not go quietly into the night. He would fight on.
Tisic showed no sign of getting weary. In fact it seemed like he was getting stronger. Tim was getting tired. He was getting weaker.
Tisic hit tim’s leg. He fell over. His pants were torn. There was a large gash. Blood went every where. He was hit again. This time blood could be sean near his stomich.
Addison looked at sotril. Stil stoic. How could this not afect her. Her x husband and future husband were fighting it out . Addison could understand how this could not afect her.
He was in pain. He fought the pain. He tried to sumon every strengh he had. He kicked tisic in the knees. It did not phase him.
Tisic tried to crush his head.he almost succeded. He rolled over and roled away. Tisic picked him up like he was a rag dole and flung him into the stand. Onlookers had to avoid being crushed by the projectile. Tisic went over and picked him up and threw him again.
His head started to bleed. “This is a slaughter!”liz commted. “Tge fact that we are watching it unfold is disturbing !” Dr. Pipper said.
Addison got up and went over to sotril. Sotril watched the duel if you could call it that.
Tisic kicked tim even though he was on the ground. Tim tried to get up but he interfeared with every atempt.
“Sotril! Stop this! This is wrong! Tim is in love with you. Do you need any more evidence ? Are you wiling to let him die due to your indisisiveness?” Addison asked.
“He chose this ! I did not ask him to do this! “Sotril said. “Sotril you do this you will always regret it. I will never forgive you! Star fleet should question your ability to function as a star fleet officer!” She said.
Tim was in trouble. He was out of breath,tired. Tisic was about to crush him. He was out of options. This was it.
He tried to dodge it. His legs gave out. Tisic seamed to be enjoying what he was about to do.
The weapon was about to hit him. “Sotril!”Addison said. She remembered something. “This may be irational,ilogical but i am madly deeply in love with you soryana!”tim said.
She watched as tisic was about to crush him. “Wait!” Sotril said. T’pau urged the proceding to be haulted.
” I wish to consult with tisic!”she said. T’pau premited it. She went over to him. ” Tisic!  I can’t do this ! ” She said.
“I understand ! I gues i always knew that you and i were not ment to be together !” He said. “I gues not!” She said.
“I will bow out ! It is unprecidented but i don’t think that even t’pau will refuSe the request of the prefect’s son!” Tisic said.
Tisic went to speak to t’pau. They spoke privately. While sotril went over to tim. ” I’m sory for this ! I don’t know what i was thinking. ” She said.
“I love you sotril!”he said though the pain. “I know i have  known for a while! I never should have doubted it!”she said. Piper and nurse christine chepel went over to tim.
” Is the weding between you and tisic off?” He asked. “Yea he is withdrawing? ” she said. He was in pain. “Will you mar!”he started to pass out.
She took his hand and placed it in hers. “Yes i will mary you!”sotril asked.
” Captain’s log t’pau has alowed tisic to withdraw. Apearently a young priestess named t’pring has had an interest in tisic and they have bonded. ”
“While once tim mathews regained consciousness,t’pau conducted a Vulcan mariege cerimony in sickbay. While the enterprise is perparing to leave orbit and go on our next mission .”

“This was full of suprises!” Addison said. ” our mission seam to go that way!” Dassale said. “Indeed! Ryian set course !”she said.

Tim made sure he was there ahead of time.  He did not see the ambassador. He went in. There he saw a large rygelion man.
The rygelion struck
him with a large energy waund. He was in pain. He struck the man. The man kept coming at him. He tried to block the waund. He ussed all his might to grab the waund.
He would not acept no for an answer. He started to gain the uper hand. The man tried to regain it. He kicked him in the knee then kicked his orther knee. He grabed the wound and struck the man in the eye. The man passed out.
“Good work! You let your instincts kick in. Your responce time has improved considerably. Tisic is known for being alert! You have to have parts of your working at one hundred percent. One mistake and it will be over!” Sarek said.
“If he is undeegoing pon far,won’t he be weakond?”he asked.”only his ablity to reason. He will be able to fight!”sarek told him.
“What Was that rygelion?” He asked.”oh it is a robot with a holow matrix. It was a gift on my visit to argelious. ” the ambassador said.
  Tim did it all. He was chased by a gigentic holo monstir He engaged sarek in hand in hand to hand  combat. He thought with swords. He wrestled with the ambassador.
He was worn out. “Tired?”sarek said. “A little!”tim said. “Are you going to go though with it?’sarek asked. “I am not ready am i!”tim asked. “No your not! “Sarek said.
“I wish i could walk away. Mayby the logical thing to do is to let it go! The truth is i don’t think she is doing the logical thing! I have no idea why she is marying him. I will always wounder what if? Could i have won? I will always know i was a coward. Maybe i will get back on tract but maybe not. I won’t be me any more. They say one choice efects every thing. One walk down a coridor. I feel like this is a turning point!”he said.
“They say until you have something worth dying for,you have really lived! How far are you wiling to go? The fact is this will probably lead to nothing. Mostlikly you will lose,be killed and tisic will mary sotril any ways. “He said. “This is starting to sound like the kobioshi meru! “Tim said. “There are far more no win situation then we are aware of son!” He said.
“I am going though with it! Win or lose,live or die,i am all in!”tim said. “I knew you would be! For what its worth i suport you in this! “Sarek said. “Thank you sir!”tim said.

“Captain it is hardly necessary for me to attend! Vulcan has there own security besides Vulcan is one of the saftest planets in the galaxy ! ” gioto said.
“Commander you are a member of senior staf. You are a department head. You need to be there!”she said.
“You just want to torture me! “Gioto said. “Yes i do. Just wait till my kids birthday? “Adison said. “you canot require me to go to kids birthday?”gioto said.
The senior staf entered the transporter room. “Ready when you are captain!”takigawa said. They got on the pad. Adison gave the go ahead to energize.
The team beamed off of the ship and on to the planet. The family esate was a buz with activity. “Hey addy is that t’pau?”ryan said. “It is indeed. This is the weding of the prefect’s son. It stood to reason that someone like t’pau would be hear! ” Addison said.
“May i have your attention. Our society has embraced reason over emotion,logic over feeling. We look at life from the lense of biology,science. Coming together is a necesity. It is not logical to be apart. For that and the continuation of our race,we mary. ”
“Today! Two of our citizens chose to undergo the jouney of life together. Tisic and sotril. “T’pau said.
The two stood together near the priestes. Sarek nodded to tim to procede. “I challenge this procesion!” Tim said.
Everyone was stuned by this move. Everyone except for the captain and the ambassador.
“Silence! Step froward!”t’pau said. Tim came froward. ” i am tim son of loyd. I challenge this mariege. I challenge tisic for the right to mary sotril! ” tim said.
“Tim! Don’t do this!” Sotril said.”the challenge has been made. Do you atend to go though with this? Once a challenge has been formilized,it cannot be retracted!”t’pau said. ” i wish to procede !”tim declared. ” Very well! Tisic do you accept this challenge ?” T’pau asked. “I do! I will not hesitate to kill you!”tisic said.
“Very well! We will ajurne ans reconvine in five houers. At that time combat will occur! ” t’pau declared.
The two were seperated into private room on the oposite end of the neighborhood. Tim prepared as best as could for the inevitable conflict that was about to occur.
  He remembered a time of him and sotril. “I feel like our two words are so different ! “Tim said. “We are but we will work it all out!”he said as he put his arm around her. “I am certain that we will! ” she said.
The door opened,it was sotril. “I would speak to you! ” she said. “Off course! “He said. “Look Vulcan law and tradition says that a challenge is irevocible but i think they would make an exception in this case! You are in good shape but you will never defeat him. He will kill you!” Sotril said.
” What diferfence does it make soryana? I have been dead sence i saw that letter in my qurters. You never even said goodbye. “Tim said.
“Our relationship was not logical! It could not endure. “She said. “There is not true! It was not superficial. It was not musy. There was substence to it!”tim said. “Please ! Withdrew the challenge. It will cause a temporary rift between humans and Vulcan but everyone will get over it! “Sotril said.
“I can’t do it soryana! It is just not in me! I won’t just walk away’ “tim said. ” I can’t change your mind?”she asked. “No! You can’t?” He said.
“I never wanted this to happen ! I did not meen to hurt you! “She said. “I know !”he said. “I wish you well!” She said. She walked out.

“I am surprised you agreed to help a human challenge a mariege of a noble familly marying the son of a prefect. It is a logical union? It is not?”amanda said.
“On paper perhaps. Tisic is an hourerable man. It does seam to be a resonible union!” Sarek asked. “Then why help a human challenge it? “She asked.
“Well sotril is a dynamic person and tisic is a bit of a dulered! Even in a Vulcan mariege there has to be some glue that holds it together. I am not sure there is between those two!” Sarek declared. “Why sarek i think i am rubing off on you!”amanda said. “I don’t think so. I think i have come to a well resoned conclusion. I doubt surek himself would aprove of this union! “He said. “Surek would think of him as a dulered?” Amanda asked. “He might not use that terminology but yes i believe he would !” Sarek said. “Of course!”she said trying not to laugh.

“Thank you so much captain!”tim said. “Look tim! This was the easiest part. You are going to have to do a lot of work! The traning will be beyond any traning you have ever done!”Addison told him. “I know that Addison ! I am prepared well as prepared as i can be! ” he said.
“Well i wish you luck! I am rooting for you for all its worth! Some things are worth puting it all on the line for! “She said. “I really believe this is one of those events! “He told her. She believed that was true. She just hoped that this will suckeed.
She was concerned that this would get him killed but she was hopefull. Maybe he would bow out or tisic would bow out. There would be time for all that to short itself out later.
Tim went to sleep early.he had the computor wake him up at 03:30. He got right out of bed. He showered and then had cofee and a light breakfast.
He went to the transporter room. ” Chief your already on duty?” He asked. “I like to get an early start. I like to do some diegnostic test and things that are difficult to do during the day!”takigawa said. “I see! One to beam to the serface!”tim said.
“You sure about this?”tagigawa asked. “No! I feel i have to do this! Good idea or not!” He said. “I understand !”the operator said.he went to the pad. “Good luck! Energizing now!” He said.the chief activated the controls.the lt was beamed off the ship and on to the home of ambassador and amanda sarek.
  “Lt mathews?”sarek asked.”ambassador sarek!” Mathews said. “You are atempting to do something that at best is difficult,at worst imposible. You have little hope of servival,your only chance is to do exactly what i tell thee!”sarek said.
“I am prepared to do just that ambassador !” Tim told the ambassador.
“Tisik is a grand master of six disiplines. He has a black belt in several human martial arts as well. He is going though the early stages of pon far!” Sarek said.
” I was not aware of that!” Tim said. “You are aware of pon far?’sarek asked . “Sotril explaned to me!”he said.
He remembered them being at his perents home on earth. They were holding hands as they walked in sotril’s favorite spot of the property.
“Men go though pon far every seven years. They experience a rush of emotion. While men can conceve aside from pon far,they are super futil. Many chose to time wedings with pon far!” She said. “I see! Women don’t go though pon far?” He asked. “Not usually ! It can occur! “She said. “I see! “He said. “You might be in the clear!”she told him. “I gues this will be an adventure !” He said. “We Vulcans are non emotional but not boring!” She told him.
“Tisic filter wil be gone as will his self regulation. His impulse ,hus instinct will kick in. He will be brute force. He won’t hesitate to kill you ! He will make a Klingon look like a trible! ” sarek said.
“What do i do?”he said. “Follow me!”he instructed him. He folowed the ambassador. They went to a court yard.
He put a blind fold on him. “Thet say when a teren loses eye sight other sences quick in. I want you to focus. Listen. Get a sense of your seroundings! Know there is of this place. To defeat tisic you must find an advantage or create one! “He said.

“Are we going to do a bridal shower for the commander?” Yeoman smith asked. ” I don’t think so. It is not the Vulcan thing. I am not sure how this is all going to play out! Andrea!”Addison asked. “What do you meen?” She asked. “Never mind !”Addison said. “Your not really on bored with this are you addy?”daner asked. “Its really not my place . Sotril is a big girl. She can make her own decisions!”addy said. “You have an opinion on it?” Liz asked. “Yea i do!”she said. “Care to share with the class?”kyile asked. “Not really !” She said.

“It has been far too long!” Sotril morther said. “I know. I have been buisy. Being on a deep space mission makes returning to ones homeworld problimetic. “She said.
“Are you doing alright?” Her farther said. “I am. My past dificulties were just that. I don’t know what happened. I have corected it!” She said.
“Sotril! You have never brought us shame. Quite the contary. You have always done well for the family !” The farther said. “I thank you for that! I know thou are syincere. I value the words and the syincerity behind it. “She said.
“Are you sure that marying tisic is the best “her morther asked. “It is a most logical pairing !”she declared. ” Is it?”her brother asked. “What do you mean?”sotril asked.
“There is a difference between logical and convenient !”her sister said. ” there is more to consider then philisophical simularities. Are you compatible ?”her morther asked. “I am a Vulcan ! I need not consider such things!” Sotril said.
“What of surek? He decided to mary a former mage alied with the tyrent zackel over one of his principle lt!” Her farther comented.
“You and tim had something ! “Her morther said. “Please this is an old debate!” Sotril said. “We believe that it was a mistake for the anulment!” Her farther said.
“You disagreed with it at the time! ” she said. “We were mistaken !” Her morther said.”have you heard from him?” Her sister asked. “He is on the enterprise. We have bearly spoken!” She said. “Does he know ?” Her morther asked. “He must by now!” Sotril said. “You have not spoken to him about this ?”her farther asked. “I did not feel the need!” She said.
She recaled an event from her past. She and tim were in the courtyard. “You ok? “Tim asked.”I’m cold! Your planet is too cold!”she said. He took off his jacket and put it on her. “You don’t have to do that!”She said.”its fine!”he said. ” You know your never getting this jacket back?”she said. “Yea i figured. Some things never change!”he said. She woundered what was tim doing right now.
Tim spent houers under a blind fold. He could not believe how his hearing intensified. He heard birds and cretures far away as if they were right next to him. At first he found being blind disoriented. Later he had gotten used to it. It became part of who he was.
“Ok now the difficult part! I am giving you a sword. It is from jeremy greyson!”he said. “The pacifist ?” He asked. “He was hardly a pacifist . He did believe that war was not always the answer. He believed that war should not be contiplated as a first resort. “Sarek said.
“I see! How did you come by sutch an artifact ?”tim asked.
“I maried a disendent of greyson!” He said. “Oh! That makes sense! “He said.
“I want you to fight me?” Sarek said. “Alright ! I asume you too have a sword?” Tim asked. “I would not assume anything.”he said.
Tim took his sword. He tried to wield it. Sarek came at him with his sword. He tried to predict where he thought sarek’s sword was and counter him.
Tim was doing better then he expected. He was definitely holding his own. He tried to focus. He had been able to counter sarek. Sarek took advetage of tim’s oversight and took out his sword.
“You are doing well?” Sarek said.”stil not enough to beat tisic?”tim said. “Take off your blind fold!”he told him. It felt weird at first. He had forgotten what it was like to see. He almost fainted. “Give your eyies a chance to ajust!”he said.
“Should i just walk away. Mayby i am not cut out for this! Tisic is a good man. Sotril and him must have something. ” Tim said.
“Tisic is safe. He is familer. Safe is not always corect. The ilusion of safty can cloud one’s judgement. Spontanaety does not have to eaquil danger. Tisic is a fine man. Is he corect for sotril? Is sotril thinking this though?” Sarek said.
“If i die,she may stil chose to mary tisic?”he said. “How important is this to you? It is all on the line? How far are you wiling to go? “Sarek asked. “I want to fight you again without the blind fold!”he said. “Very well!”sarek said.

Addison had a reception for sotril and tisic. Tim felt very out of place. “I would like to perpose a toast to sotril and tisic. May your weding be long and prosperous. The hunie moon will be short. I need my exo back!” Addison said.
Tim remembered a similar reception. “I can’t believe it. Tim and sotril are finally getting maried. I thought they were already maried. I figured they found some justice of the peace and just did not tell anyone !” His best man said.
Tim could not handle this any more. He leaned over to commander gioto. “I need some air!” Tim said. Tim got out and left the mess hall. The door closed.
He tried to make a qiet exit. He tried not to be noticed. He had been noticed. Sotril noticed. She tried not to think about it. She tried to cary on.

The challenge part four

“Ok ! Let me get this straight you want to challenge a vulcan who has the eqivolent of multiple black belts in vulcan martial arts. A man who was moroned on a gasious planet with bairly enough oxygen and servived! “Adison said.
“I understand vulcan law premits a challenge for any reason including from a non vulcan. Tisek cannot refuse me! “Tim said.
“I am aware of vulcan laws and customs tim. Look if your ready to settle down,there are easier ways them challenging a vulcan ! Its a big universe ! There are plenty of electron in the universe!”she said.
“This is not a whim ! I did not wake up and decide to go pick a fight with a random groom! There is more to this!” Tim said. “Alright perhaps we should start from the beginning !” Addison said.
” i met sotril at the academy. A bunch of us were touring the plans of abraham in old qubec. I did not know most of the people on the trip. ”
” There was a battle hear?”sotril asked. Tim had no idea who she was. ” Yes! This area was controled by the french. Back then they usually did not engage in warfare at night. The french got very drunk. Thr british in long red over coats,don’t ask!,scalled the clifs and suprised everyone. This all but gurentied british dominence over most of north america. This ended french expansion in north america. It created a french province in an otherwise english nation ! ” he said.
” why would one be drinking and paryting in the middle of an unresolved conflict. It is ilogical!”sotril said. “I agree! To us it seams like a no braner. It is easier to coment hundreds of years later! “He said.
“You like history !”she asked . “Very much so!  Its fasinating. I an not as versed on vulcan history . I know a little hear and there.  “He said.
” I find a lot of humans clasify vulcan history as pree surek,post surek,human first contact,federation. ” She said. “I wish i could refute that but your probably right. I believe profesor gill is working on writing a vulcan historical primer for non vulcans. I am sure that his will be more informitive!”he said.
“Profesor gill is always very thorough with history . I am sure it wil be an excellent work! ” she said.
“I’m tim by the way! “He said. “Sotril! She said. “It is good to meat you!” He said.
“I considered it a chance encounter. It is a big campus. I never expected to see her again. We kept poping into eachother. Library ,sporting events, courtyard, we just kept running into eachorther. ” Tim said.
“May i speak to you?”she asked.” Of course! “He said. “I understand the sadie hawkins dance the women ask the man to be his date?” She asked. “It is a bit of a relic of a bi gone era. For some reason it has become part of academy tradition. ” He said.
” Will you be my date?”she asked . “Really ? Your really asking me. This is not some pratical joke! You were not put up to this by an uper classman?”he asked . “I am really asking you!”she said.
“She is always serious looking.at that moment i had never seen her so serious. I could tell by the look in her eyes that she ment it! I said yes. ”
“This one is a slow dence! Do you want to sit this one out?”he asked. “Are you tired? Do you need a break?” She asked. ” No!”he said. He took a hold of her. She was softer then he expected. He expected an non logical species to be cold,she was not. Bioligically they were not too different except that several organ like a heart is in a different place.
“I figured it was a one time event. I figured a long term relationship was out of the question. ”
“Then there was tisic. There was always tisek. Apearently they grew up together . They were neighbors. They frequented the same social circles. There was nothing between them. At least not as sotril saw it. Neither one was bethothed to anyone . Tisek hoped to presude her to mate with him. Had i not come into the picture ,they may have been maried long ago. She probably would have relented. I came into the picture ! I gues i upset his apple cart! ” he said.
”  our relationship was ill defined for a long time. At some point we decided we decided we were a couple !” She said.
” Look i don’t know how to ask this but are we a couple ? Is this a friendship,more? I have no idea!” He said. ” I am agreible to us being a couple as humans define it!”she said.
“Graduation i decided to pop the question. We had both been asigned to uss. Nimitz. I tried not to give her any hints. I wanted it to be a complete surprise. ”
He tried to find her. He was beraged with every one and his grandmother literily. He finally came to her.
” Sotril can i talk to you?”he asked. “Of course! ” she said. They went to a sicluded area if the courtyard. ” Sotril ? We are at a turning point in our relationship! “He said.
“Yes i have noticed that as well!”she said. “Sotril !”he was sweting. He was nervous. He took out a box with a ring. He got on his knes. He had not planed that part. “Sotril will you marry me?” He asked.
“Yes i will !”she said. “Really ? Your sure? “He asked . “Yes i am sure! ” She said. He put the ring on her finger.
“It was great! Best six mouths of my life! Then she had a crises of faith in surek. She began to explore emotion. When she came to her sences,she asociated her brief flutation with emotion with me.  I asured her nothing needed to change. I never expected her not to be logical . I fell in love with her! That included her logical side. I felt our diferences made us stronger. It made me a better officer. It forced me to look beyond the superficial or the serface. I can credet Vulcan philosphy with saving my neck on more then half a dozen ocasions. She just could not see it. One night i came home from my duty shift and all of her stuf was gone. She asked me for an anulment. She transferred to another ship. I never saw her  again until now! Look nothing has changed. Not for me! I thought i moved on. I figured she maried tisek years ago. I can’t just let this go!” He said.
“Have you tried to talk to her?” Addison asked. ” i tried. It did not go anywhere . Smal talk mostly ! “Tim said.
“Maybe you should take this as a sign to move on. You can find someone else!” Addison said.
“I am not some raw cadet ! This is not a crush. It is not going to go away!” He said.
“You don’t stand a chance,not against tisek! Not even with the help of a championship. It would be a fight to the death. There has not been a challenge like this in cencuries. It is not worth it. You are a decorated officer with a bright future ahead of you. He will kill you because cultural codes demand it. ” Addison said.
” would you be wiling to settle for someone orther then ryian? “‘He asked. ” good point! Are you sure. You will either have to take a life or have it taken from you. Are you really prepared for that?” She asked.
” Yes i am !” He said. “I will talk to the ambassador but i can’t promise anything ! She said.
Home of ambassador sarek.
“Fasinating! Do you think this request was made with sound mind and judgement?” The ambassador asked. ” Not totally but i think he has thought it though. He has been though advanced combat training . He has been in several difficult situations. I stil don’t see him defeating tisik in combat!”Addison said.
“Tisik is an hournerable man. I have a great respect for him. I have eaquil respect for sotril. I suspect lt. Mathews will go ahead with the challenge regardless of my help or lack. With my help he may have a chance. “Sarek said.
“I would feel better if you did train him!”she said. “Tell him to meat me in my court yars at 0500 sharp!” He said. “You got it!”she said.

Aly had to drag me off the bridge.  After another impact she fell into a casism. I froze. I wanted to help her but i was scared. I fell and woke up in an esape pod. I have no idea how i got there. That has hounted me for years. I spent several mouths at a psikiatric rehab colony. I vowed to clean up my act,grow up. I thought she had died. I have no idea how shs servived. She is right i took the life she wanted. In a way she is correct. “She said.
