New order part three

“Captain’s log while ships along the federation border are on the lookout for the s.s clarks sumit,i am undergoing a different mission. A much more personal one. ”
Addison got into the shartle hangor bay. She went into the shartle craft Galileo. She entered the craft. She sat down at the cockpit. She began pre flight.
The bay door opened. The shartle lifted off. The scout ship left the bay. The smal ship was off.

“We will engage in a chain link formation. We will work from a designated search grid!”commadore mat decker said. ” You think that they are out hear?” First officer asked. “They have to be! They have to be in the general vicinity!”decker said.
“Commadore! I just detected a minor energy flucuation. We apear to be alright !”science officer masada said.”keep an eye on it! “Decker said. “You got it sir!”the science tech reported.

” Excellentcy! 14 Federation ships afected. Seven are constitution class heavy crushers. This includes commadore decker. With the trogen horse we will control most of the federation fleet.”McPherson reported.
“We can have there fleet imobilzed in seconds excellentcy!’jauqauin said. “Soon i will once again be a prince with power not over milons but billions upon bilions. An empire bigger then ceaser,alexzander and nopolien and all the others combined! Well done!”khan said.
“What now?”zoey asked. ” We wait for the right opportunity ! It will be hear soon! “He declared.
  Elba II
The shartle neared the planet. It brought back memories for her. She was once instionized in a non juducial mental health facility.
“I don’t need to be hear!”a younger her said. She wore a pink cover all with a white undershirt. ” your family are woried you. So are your friends. You have been though more then someone your age should.”a younger Elizabeth danner said.
“I just need time. I need to sort this out on my own. I’m not alright but i will be. No one understands that! Not every thing depends on a comunity! Don’t start with the no man is an island !  ” she said.
“Elba control this is the shartle galio 7. Requesting permission to enter. Sending authentication code now!”Addison said. ” Authentication code confirmed. Releasing shield in twenty second. Please folow landing protical to the letter!”the controler said. “Understood!”she said.
The shield came up. As soon as the ship was inside the shield grid,the shield was rengaged. She always hated that part.  She felt traped. She hated that feeling even knowing she could leave whenever she wanted to. The shartle went to the landing area. The scout craft landee in the designated landing pad.
Addison excited the vessel. She was greated by several officials. “Donald it is good to see you!”Addison said. “Hello Addison ! It was good of you to come! “Donald cory said. “It is important for me to be hear! Sam do you always take the most difficult cases?”she asked.
“I like a challenge ! The rehab comision asked me to. They want her represented!”samual t cogly said.
“So will i be alowed to see her before i apear before the comision?”Addison asked. “Yes! The meating room has an emergentcy force field. You will be completly safe!”cory said. “Of course!”Addison said. Adison folowed the staff.
U.s.s enterprise
Irina had trouble sleeping. She tried and tried but gave up. She decided to do some reserch.
Confrence room
  Commander sotril was doing paper work. The door opened.irina entered. “May i speak to you?” Irina asked.
“Of course ensign! “Sotril said. The commander was experiencing mild discomfort due to her pregnancy. She tried to mask that fact.
“Sir i am concerned and i can’t get it out of my head! “Irina said.”what is the saurce of your concern?”the commander asked.”well kahn is outmaned out guned. He has a non military vessel with a smal cadre of folowers. He can’t beat us in a military confrintation. My reserch shows he is a pragmitist and a realest. On earth he took risk but they always had a resonible chance of success. His only option is a gurila war. He wil probably base his campagn on the barberiens who took down rome or the viet cong. “Irina said.
“That seams to be a valid supisistion!”the vulcan commander said.
“We asume his thinking will be two dimensinal but he has the ability to adapt to unusual situations.  The federation has a central computor network. Any ship can acess the federation archive. Being an open society we try to have few secrets. We have to have some. I believe he will try to hack into our network. I believe that is how he plans to take us down !”irina said.
“I believe you are probably corect!”sotril said. “I vant to set up an independent fire wall for lack of a better term. “She said.
“Do it! Coordinate with lt. Kyile. This is your project. “Sotril said.”i vill get it done!”she said.
Clarks sumit
The doctor was getting ster crazy.he paced up and down the brig. “Your not clastrophobic are you?”Hadley asked. “Of course not! “The doctor said. ” please don’t vomit!”merek said. “I’m trying not to. This imprisonment thing is not for me! I’m a doctor not an inmate!”the doctor said.
They heard the swish of the door as it opened. They heard the sound of footprints. They saw several gaurds. “Captain merek! His excellentcy wants to see you!” McPherson said.
Merek did not want to see him but figured he did not have a say.he got up.
On McPherson’s order,the tech monitoring the cell lowered the force field. Merek came out. The field was reactivated. He followed the gaurds.
Merek was escorted to the captain’s office. The door opened. Merek was escorted inside. “Wait outside !”khan instructed the gaurds. They did so.
“I need your help captain !”khan declared. “I will never help you!”merek said. “Oh you will!”khan said.
“The Vulcans! They are peaceful even pacifists. That was not always the case! They used the mind as a weapon. Telipathic warfare! “Kahn said.
The former war lord placed his hand on him. “Your not a Vulcan !”merek said. “That was quite profound!”khan retorted. 
  “My mind to your mind my thoughts to your thoughts! From this time foward you will be my subject. You will folow my directives! “Khan said.
Elba three
Addison waited in a visitor room.the door opened,Alison entered. The gaurds left. “I’m suprised to see you hear! “Alison said.
“I had to come anyways so why not say hello!” Addison said. “You want your conscience alived. You want asurences i am not your old friend. You want me to give you some kind of absolution. I can’t do that. “Alison declared.
“I know! “Addison said. “I won’t ask for forgiveness myself! Whatever we were is gone now! “Alison said.
“I gues i expected that! I am not sure why i came to see you. I regret it went the way it did”Addison said. “You said what you came to say! Our conversation is concluded!” Alison said.
“I came all this way. I am not quite ready to depart! “Addison said. They just sat there silently.
  U.s.s enterprise
Bridge
“Commander incoming mesage from the star base. Captain merek claims to have snuck on to an esape pod! The constilation is heading to pick them up. “Palmer said.
“This is a bad idea! It could be a trap!”chief gioto said. “Decker has to suspect that right?”yeoman smith commented. “One ship v one ship. Those are not bad odds!”piper said. “This is bigger then what we think! Khan cannot be underestimated !”dr. Danner said. “Agreed! “Sotril said.
Adison hoped to get answers. She hoped to acheve some kind of closure. That did not happen.she doubted it would but she hoped. Some things just don’t ever make sense perhaps!
“Anything ?” Arial shaw asked.” No! Who is she? Is she my old friend. Is she a robot? I don’t get this !”Addison said. “None of us do! Not fully! I’m glad i am not on the comision. “Arial said. “What will star fleet recommend?” Addison asked. ” Confinement to elba for now. I would perfer indefinitely but i doubt the comision will go for that! “Shaw said. “That seams best! “Addison said.
“What will you say to the commission ?” Arial asked. “I have no idea. I may just wing it. Go with the first thing that pops in mu head! “She said. “Wish i could be a fly on the wall during your testimony !”she said.
U.s.s proxima
  “I have the pod! Sending coordinents to helm!”the science officer reported. ” I have it!”the helm said. “Set course for the pod. Ready tractor beam!”captain clark terrel ordered.
The ship headed for the pod. The vesel engaged a tractor beam on the smal pod. The pod was tractored into the cargo bay. The pod entered and landed in a berth. The pod completed landing procedures. Merek stood straght and excited the pod.
The medical team was ready to meat them. The captain walked towards the crew of the proxima.suddenly the captain of the vesel detonated himself. The blast engulfed the room.
Elba 2
Confrence room one A.
“This hearing to adress the satus of Alison morgen crenic is called to order! Today we will hear from captain Addison marie mccomic. Captain !”the chairman said.
She wore the green dress uniform of a female officer. She placed her hand on the computor module. “Addison marie mccomic bragen born Addison marie Taylor. Currently member of star fleet. Commands starship enterprise.  Do you have a satement?”the chairman asked.
“I do mr. Chairman !”she said. “You may speak captain. “He said. “I have had to do many difficult things in my carer. This is the hardest. The person in question was a close friend of myine. ..”
Suddenly there was a sound of some kind of air or space craft right above them. Every one ducked. The ship overhead fired on the building. Addison helped several of the commisionors to safty.

New order part two

“Captain’s log,the enterprise was saverly damaged in the battle with kahn an enigmatic figure from earth’s past. We are beginning damage control procedures. Fortunently casulties were lite. ”
Bridge
“Engineering !you stil in one peace pitcarin?”Addison asked. “I don’t know about that but i am stil functioning. “The chief said. “How did the engines hold up?”she asked. “Minnor damage but nothing too serious. This ship is the stuf of legends. “The engineer said. “Can’t argue with you there! Keep me aprised!”Addison said.
Nurse chapel and orther medical officers worked to aid the wounded on the bridge. Addison was nursing her arm. There was a visible wound. “Captain ! Sickbay!”dr. Piper said. “There are orther crewman in far worse shape then myself mark! The crew comes first!” She said.
Several crew were transfered off the bridge to sickbay.most were on there own power. Only two were transported by bio strecher.
“Well we know that methuselah works! Right now i wish it was a falure!”daystrom said. ” i know what you meen. Whatever happens it is on us!”lary marvic said. “I know! That is why we must do whatever we can to stop it! “Daystrom said. “I agree!”the man said.
Yeoman smith began to survey the ship. She found a broken circut and began to repair it. She was traned in administration but sence joining the enterprise crew she has expanded her skils.
Lt. Kyle went to check the computer core. He did a full diegnostic on all ships system. He was through. He left no stone unturned.
Lt. Commander giito was known as being cyinical. He felt that he had to be. Star fleet was made up of idelest,dreamers. This made people like gioto necessary.at least that was how gioto felt about it. This all concerned him. The enterprise has been wounded. Though they outmaned and outguned the clark’s sumit,kahn proved a worthy oponent. Gioto tried to find any problem that might have been overlooked.

  Qurters of kahn
“The battle did not quite as planed but methusah is all we hoped it to be and more!”jouquin said. “It is indeed.i am quite inpresed. The battle was an opening salvo in a wider war. A war to revive humanity! “Kahn said.
“I assume you have a plan ? “The younger aid asked. “I am forming one. It will have to be multi facited. A comprehensive plan. A program for the future. We will be unstoppable !”kahn asured him.
Brig
“There was some kind of attack but it is over now!”merek said. “They were attacked by romulons.the recent attacks were star fleet!” Hadley said. “What is his game? Really he wakes from a long hybernation and resumes being Alexander the great now on an insteler scale?”the doctor said.
“Some people are who they are.change is difficult !”the captain said. ” I hate to just do nothing !”the doctor said. “No we will look for an opportunity and when we have one,we will take it!”the captain asured his fellow captives.

Confrence room
Seated at the table was captain mccomic,commander sotril,chief engineer pitcarin,doctor piper,security chief gioto,helm officer dasale,lt. Irina galiunion, dr. Daner,lt. Kyile,lt palmer and chief takigawa and lt. Tim mathews.  The captain called the meating to order.
“Mr. Mathews!”she said. ” The man who calls himself khan is this man. Kahn nonian singh. He was from earths past. He was part of genetic engineering. After a failed crusade to take over earth,he dissapered. There were stories he fled into space ! It seams they were true”tim mathews said.
“According to the files i could find the man is unpredictable. One minute he is a kind,the next minute he is a monster beyond compare. “Elizabeth said.
“What is his goal now? He is awake after almost three hundred years? What now?”Addison asked.
“I believe using history as a guide,he will try to reasert himself into human afairs. He will atempt to create a new empire. He probably see the federation as the bases of a new empire!” Mathews said.
“I believe he has a belief that humanity canot function properly without him. His ego will not allow him to tolerate an organization that he does not paticipate in. “Danner said.
“I believe he has in his own way declared war on the federation. He has a civilian reserch vessel but he is intuitive,inovative resourcefull. We cannot underestimate kahn!” Gioto said.
“He has methusalah. We see clearly that his goal is to weponize it. “Pitcarin said.
“Star fleet wants us to head for star base 12. We will complete repairs there. Star fleet is going to be beefing up security on the border. The fronteer is on high alert. “Commander sotril said.
“We are not going to be part of the task force looking for them? “Dassale asked. “We took a lot of damage. We need to make sure we are in tip top shape !”Addison said.
“I assume if something happen while on route we will join in?”irina asked. “Your starting to figue me out. Correct. Is there are no more questiones,we are ajurned!” Addison said.
Every one got up. Dr. Danner went over to Addison. “I can’t believe you want to sit on the side lines?”Elizabeth asked. “I won’t risk the ship more then i have to liz. “Addison said.
“A big fight between you and kahn,its inevitable isint it?”liz asked. “Yes i think it is. What he did with a scout ship. This thing has just begun !”Addison said.

“McPherson ! You wanted to see me?”kahn asked. “Excellentcy! The methusalah is quite impresive. There design is very sound but it is a bit of overkill. I can design smaller verson of the device that do the same thing. They need not be bulky or combersome. Sir i believe we can use this one as a master unit. I think we can mass produce these poor man’s version.”she said.
“Methuselah can fuel our revolution !”jequin said. “Anything mankind can do. We of superior intelect can do far better! “Kahn declared.
“The problem is that this will take time! We have one ship and it is a non military scout vessel. I doubt we will find alies in the federation. I believe that the humans of this time enjoy there weakness !” Jouquin said.
“Then what? I rather not aly with the Klingon or romulins or God Forbid the tholiens!”zoey rayburn said.
“No they canot be trusted. No one but us can have acess to methuselah!” Kahn said.
“We will have to wait! Hide out and build ships as a secrit shipyard some where?”jauqauin said. “No! I have a different idea! We wont wait. Strike while the iron is hot. The time for the revolution is now! This is our time! This is our monent and we must take it!”kahn declared.
Kahn now revealed his plan.
His inner circle was quite supportive of the plan. They got right to work implimenting it.
Star base 12
U.s.s enterprise bridge
  “Sandard orbit acheved!” Irina reported. “Very good. Palmer begin coordinate with star base control ! Lets begin repairs and asestment.”Addison ordered.”aye sir!”sotril said.
“Commander sotril will handle repair and asestment until i return !”she said. “Return ?”Smith asked.
Yeoman smith was shocked. As her personal asistnent,smith knew every thing Addison knew. Today she was blindsided. She had been left totally out of the loop. She did not know why.
“I have some personal business to atend. I will be back soon! “Addison said. Every one was confused but went with it.  Addison then left the bridge.
