Preservers and the preserved part five 

“Captain’s log the enterprise has returned to the planet anvar prime. The rinsed people have returned to there village. Dr. Dahner and her star have begun working with the tribal people. Star fleet will be sending a sociology team to the planet. While the anvar president is continuing a safe of emergency but the emurgentcy order had been downgraded but the patrol continues. While the president has invited myself and my senior staff to the planet for a safe dinner. 

Anvar city

“Addison how are you feeling?”the captain asked. “Better! Thank you captian.”Addison said.”glad to hear it.”the captain said. The captain moved on. “How are things of?”he asked the com officer.”I still feel odd but Dr. Piper says it should pass.”she said.”glad to hear it. ” He said. “I just have to take it one day at a time!”she said.”Kathy that’s all you can do. “Norris said.” Perhaps ! ” He said. 

“May I have everyone’s attention. Captian Norris to you and your crew,on behath of the anvar association,I offer my heart full thanks.”the president said. The assembled guest clapped. “I present to you the Medel of association. “The president said. There was claps and applause. Then the tribal chief got up. “Captain Norris. On behath of the rinsed people we are in your debt. We will never forget you and all you have done for us! We present to you the iron bow award.”the chief said. The medel was placed on his neck.

“On behath of the enterprise and the united federation of planets,I accept these award.i Wish the poeple of this association and the rinsed tribe all the best. I hope to visit this world again and Renee my ties with you.”noris said.After the ceremony there was a time of food and festivities.  Norris hatted pomp and circumstance  especially when he was the center of attention. He put up with it for the shake of diplomacy. He was in essence a federation ambassador so he act like one even though he preferred not to! He would get over it.

The crew was enjoying it. He was woried about kolona.kolona had been taken over by a Klingon zombi virus. She had a difficult transition and recovery.she was slowly getting back into the swing of things. He noticed something seam to be developing between her and junior helm officer Lee Kelsi. He was not sure but it seemed like it was. They looked like they could be a cute couple. . He was not sure if it was a couple but it looked like it. 

He was impressed with his crew. He felt like he had the best of the best. Addison and Jim were both future captians.he was sure if that. He looked forward to  both of there carers. Dr. Pipper was old and was opinionated but he was one of the best medical officers in the fleet.secuity chief gioto was opinionated as well. He would trust him with his life . Chief engineer hallak was a great engineer. He was one of the best engineers in the fleet. Dr. Dahner was a great psychologist.he respected commander jessep. He liked terasha as well. Mia bolt had a bright carer if her own.she would make a great commander of a starship as well. 

The festivities started to wind down.he told Ryan that he was going for air. He got up and went inside.kalera saw him leave.she decided to give him a minute. He went to the door.he tried to keep his departure low key.he planet to step back in at some point.he just wanted a minute. 

He looked outside. It was a beutifull planet. He hoped that this incident would not ruin the delicate balance that all societies had achieved.he did not want cuter to win in any way shape or form.Not even a moral victory. He wanted quter to lose. He looked up at the stars. He knew that were not earth stars. They were still stars. After a few minutes he turned around and saw kalera. “Cosmic thought’s”she asked.”just doing some thinking. Star fleet has given myself and the senior staff commendations for how we handled this mission. Anvar wants to set up more diplomatic ties with the federation. It all feel so empty Laurie!”he said.

“Your ready for the next adventure. “She said.”no that’s not it. Addison ,Kirk they have the dream of stars. Not me. In the 23rd century that’s what you do. You go to Star fleet. That’s not me not really. I wrote the letter. I have not sent it. I am pretty sure I will.”he said.”it would be a great loss to Star fleet. I would have thought this might change your mind. You have done good Ben. You cooled heads in the mass crises then the aftermath.You felt with homes and the zombies. “She said.

“I’m tired. I have no time in between. It’s been one crises after another. I need time!”he said!”,look you have time off time. Let’s go to my family’s resort near gilgathon.its breathtaking. We can sit with a picnic lunch. We don’t have to think anything else. I would love to show you my world.”she said.”what would your father say?”he asked.”he is a key ally if the predator. The preator favors the alience so I think it will be OK! “She said.”that might be nice!”he said.”we could go to earth. First your family. You could meet your new neice. After a few weeks of leave you might change your mind. ” She said. 

“Mayby! Right now I feel trapped. Uncertain.”he said.”I know. Give it time Ben. “She said.,”time heels all wounds!”he said!.” Regret ,painful memories. They will always be there . They can not sting as bad. “She said. They started to kiss. He backed away.”I can’t right now! This is not the time!”he said.”I know . I will be hear when you are ready.”she said. 

He stayed there and looked up at the stars for a bit. Then he went back inside. “You OK ?”Ryan asked.”of course !”he said.”where is kalera?”Ryan asked.”I am not sure. I assume she went back to the ship.”,he said. He did not want to think about it right now. 

U.s.s enterprise

Kalera beemed on the ship.”good evening !”of.kyile said.”good evening Mr.kyile! ” She said.she tried not to act sad.she left the transporter room after she felt protocol permitted it. The door closed. She went to her qurers. She closed the door. She did not know what to think. She heard a noise. She opened her bed room. “Kalera! I presume!”she said.”what are you doing hear?”she asked. ” Your captian is quite whiting.first he stopped my plans at building up a new preserver order. Now he stopped my plans to move a group of people. I cannot allow it to go unanswered. I want to “thank ” him for all he has done for me. ” He said.

She tried to get to her phaser.he stunned her. He beamed off of the ship. He used iconian technology. It was untracible. He had time. Time for the next phase of his plan. He would win. He was determined to win. 

On the planet his communicator went off. He flipped it on.”Norris hear. “He said.”,sir! An Aboriginal race on the planet orbrist five has dissapered. It was similar to what happened on anvar. “Nilles reported.”alright . Have the com officer inform them that we were on our way!”Norris said.”aye sir!” Lt. Niles said.”then prepare to depart. The senior staff will be beaming back shortly. “The captian said. 

He went back to the table.”quter has struck again.This time on orbrist.they have asked our help. I want you to have the senior staff prepare to return to the ship. I will inform the president. ” He said!.”understood!”,Ryan said.”I was hoping for more lag time! I guess not this time!”,he said..”we will muddle though!”,,Ryan said.”,yes we will!”,he said.

The captian went to the president.ryan informed the crew. Soon they would all beam back to the ship and prepare to leave the planet. They had no idea that this time quter had an ace in the hole.he had kalera. He thought he had Ben Norris as well. What would the captian do? 

Bridge

“Captian on the bridge!” Yeoman Smith said.”all decks stand ready. “Ryan said.”Mia take us out of orbit.”he ordered.the enterprise left orbit.”we are clear.”kirk anounced.”best speed to orbrist.”he ordered.”course plotted.”Mia reported.”engaging now!” Kirk said.the enterprise went to warp. “Now on course.”kirk said.”where is kalera?”Dr. Piper asked.”I stopped by her quarters she never answered.”jessep said.” I will go check up on it. Ryan you have the bridge!”he said.”aye sir.”Ryan said. He went to the turbo lift. The door closed.

He senced that something was wrong. He just did not know what. “Crew deck!”he said. The lift sped.his heart raced. It seemed like an eternity. All he could think was move !Move! Finally the door opened. He ran though it. He almost ran into a crewman. He apologized then kept on going. He made it to her quarters. 

He rang the chime. Nothing happened. He decided to inciate the emurgentcy override. The door opened. He saw a device scan him.a hollow Image appeared. “Well hello commander ,we meet again.it is my Duty to Cary on . The work of the preservers. It is your duty to try to stop me! You will fail! That is your fate! I have decided to what is the human expressing throw a monkey ranch into the whole thing . You see I refuse to play fair. You are right I have liberated the Murat people from orbrist. I will take them to a new world. A world of there own. This time I will succeed. I have kalera! She is tholien space. I am near Asana space. You can either save your precious Laurie or you can save the Murat. If you do not try to save her I will kill her. I am more prepared this time should you try to go after me. What happened before will not happen this time! What will it be? Will you save the Murat or will you save Laurie? So sad. So epic. The captain with two choices but I. Reality no choice. Does he pick duty or love? Does he betray all he is or does he betray the one he loves? So horrible. I will leave to pounder your choices. Good day!” He said.

The image raised. He threw the hollow imager across the room. He had no idea what to do. He had to do something. He had to stop quter and save Laurie. Could he do both? He feared he could not. This rarified him. He collected his composure then he left the quarters. 

Bridge 

He entered the bridge. He waved off the “captain on the bridge!” That yeoman Smith would usually say. “We have a problem. Kalera has been taken.its quter. ” The captain said. “I assume he used iconians technology. “Spock said. “That is my assumption as well. ” The captain said. We sucured the facility on anvar.”the security chief remarked. ” perhaps they located another one. ” Hallak said. 

“He sent a hostege tape if you will. He  claims that he is holding her in he tholien anex and the Murat in asana space. According to him I have two choices.either save kelera or save the Murat.he says if I don’t come to her he will kill her. “The captain said.

“I can’t believe that he will just let you leave with her.”Ryan said.”I know that . He can’t be trusted. I have my orders. We promised that we would protect the Murat. We do know that they are in asana space. We will head for asana space. Set the course Mia!”the captian ordered. Mia altered the course.the usually confident bolt nervously altered the course. She anounced that the course was set.

“Will quter contact us again?”Ryan asked.”I don’t know.  I am sure what his plan is. On the one hand he made it clear that he wants to resettle the Murat to another planet. He also states that he wants me to try to stop him. I believe this is a game to quter. He wants to beat me. I have become the face of the anti preservers. The old order. He wants to stop me. He wants an epic battle. Until we hear from him or unless we will head for asana. “Norris said. The bridge crew got to work. 

“Ryan ! With me. “Norris said. They went to a corner. “Ry! I am going after kalera. I am going to go to ambar. Use the gateway and try to get kalera back.take command of the enterprise. Stop the plot. ” He told him.”Ben this could be a trap! ” “Ryan said.”he is playing us. He believes that he is in control of the game. Right now he is. I won’t let kalera die. If it were addy could you?”he asked.”no I could not. ” Ryan Said.” I have to do this . “Ben said. “Alright I will sucure the Murat. ” Ryan said. He nodded. “Good!”Ben said.”this could be hopeless Ben.”Ryan said.”I know but I have to try.” He said.”very well!” He said.

The two dispersed. Ryan went to the command chair. Norris left the bridge. Commander giotto left the bridge. “Captian Norris is stepping aside for now.i am assuming command please note the time and date in the log. “Ryan said. 

Corridor 

“Captian where are you going?”gioto asked.”for a little stowl !”he said.”let me guess to tholien space.”he said.”I have to do this. We have a lot of issues. I can’t over the fact that she fired the schot that killed my brother. I can’t get over it. She is part of my family. “He said. “Let me go with you. “He said.”bary I might not be coming back.”he said.”you probably won’t if you don’t take me along.”he said.”alright let’s go.” He said.

The shartle lunched. The galio left the enterprise. The shartle headed back to anvar. The enterprise headed for asana space.

“Commander sotril I want you to analize the tricorder. See if you can translate the ships information. ” Addison ordered. “Right away Addison!”the female Vulcan said.
“I want the away team to  undergo a full  medical evaluation.”Dr. Piper saId. “Realy doc! We have though the transporter bio filters.we went though full decontamination. Now you want to proke and prod us? “Addison said.
“Only in the interest of health and safety Addison!” Dr. Piper said. “I am not totally sure I believe you but ok. “She said. Piper laughed.
She got up from the comma d chair. “I will go first to set a good example for the crew. I want everyone examined. No one left out from the fun. ” Addison said.
Sickbay
Addison disliked doctors . she also disliked hospitals. She had spent a lot of time in one. As a child she was rescued on a life pod. Her parents were assumed dead. There bodies were never recovered.
As a young women she spent time in a rehab facility after the freighter she was on was destroyed. Then there was her time on Elba two. She disliked hospital and anything To do with medicine.
She felt bad about that. She liked Dr. Piper. He was funny  and despite some of his quips had a good bed side manor.she could not get pass the fact that he was a doctor.
” just relax addie!”piper said. “I will remind you you are bound by the terms of the solartis convention.”she said. Nurse cheple chuckled.
The nurse adjusted her scanners.both checked and rechecked. Addison got nervous.especially when he got really quiet.
After a long silence ,Dr. Piper broke his silence. “Everything seams fine. You may go!”piper said. Addison got up from the exam table. Adison left the area.
“Liz your turn!”Addison said.”I can’t believe I have to go next!” Liz said. “That’s what you get for being my friend Liz.”Addison said. “Great!”Liz said.
Liz got on the table. She laid back down. The Dr. Began the examination.then the security chief,the captain yeoman,the helm navigator and tactical team were examined.
“Everyone seemed fine. You are all clear. “Dr. Piper said. “Your poking and proding was unnecessary. ” Addison said. “Poking and proding is the defense of shipwide security is no vice. ” the doctor said.
“Well I don’t know about that but ok doc. “Addison said. Piper chuckled. The landing party left the Suckbay.

Sotril devoted herself to her work. She was working on translating the data from the derilect. Her husband lt. Tim Mathews knew to keep his distance while she was working. Especially on a project like this. He gave her her space .
“Timothy you May talk to me now. I could use a brief reprieve. “Sotril said.he chuckled. ” how is it going?”Tim asked. “Well if I we’re human I would be extremely frustrated. “She said.
“I figured. ” Tim said. “The language is not similar to any language known to the federation data base. This is unusual. ” she said.”no clues at all?”he said.
“None. ” she said “it’s odd.the ship seemed to be set up to have crew yet there is no evidence of a crew .”Tim said.
“It is quite odd. I do not comprehend it. ” She said.”nor do I. The good news is out team is fine. I am assuming that this is more academic at this point. ” Tim said. “Yes true. Our mission is to explore the unknown. This would qualify. ” she said.
Conference room .
“Hey ry.”Addison said. “So we are kind of at a stand stil. “Ry remarked.”well I want to not why this ship is hear. If this is missing,I would like to be able to inform there government that we found there missing  ship. “Addison said.
“I had a feeling that was the plan. ” ry said ” I can’t resist a good mystery.”Addison said. “Ad why am I not not surprised?”he asked. Enterprise

Liz saw yeoman Smith. She seemed to have a bizare look. “Ate you ok yeoman?”Liz asked. “I am not sure. I weird weird. I understand it. “She said. “Perhaps we should get you to Sickbay?”Liz suggested.”no I’m fine. “She insisted.
“Look you have been on an alien ship. It might not be wise to dismiss this. ” Liz said. “I am fine. ” Smith insisted.
“Alright but be carefull. “Liz said.”I will mam I promise you that.”she assured the ship’s psychologist.
Lt. Commander gioto looked over the alien ship. “It had advanced weapons.comprible to our armerments. Where are the crew?” the chief said .
“Could they have been abducted ?”Galloway asked. “Mayby. It seams far fetched. Then I remember we are in star fleet. We major in the far fetched. ” the chief said.
“We can’t rule outside interference in or out at this point. ” Leslie said. “I suspect that the ship may have been unmanned. ” the chief said.
Sickbay.
Nurse chapel felt really odd.she could not explaine it but she knew that she felt weird.
“Are you ok Christine ?” the doctor asked. “I’m not sure mark.” she said.”are you feeling light headed?”Mark asked. “No I just feel weird. “She said.”get on the table let me check you out! ” piper said .
“I don’t think that’s necessary. ” the nurse said. “Not your call to make. You we’re on an away team on an unknown Ship I am not taking any chances .” Dr. Piper said.
“Very well. ” Christine said. She got on the exam table. He took out his scanning equipment.he looked her over.
“I am not detecting anything out of the ordinary. I am going to conduct some more in dept test. I do think it is necessary. “He said. “Very well.”she said.

“Commander I Think I may have a clue to dicifering the langrege of the mystery ship. It appears to be a close cousin of the drabeki . it is av very distant cousign however. ” lt. Palmer said.
“Can you develop a primer?”sotril asked. “I am close but I am having dicharacter with  several characters. “Palmer said
“Send me over what you have. I will see if I can go from there. ” the Vulcan officer said.
“Sending over information now. ” the com officer informed the Vulcan science officer. The information was transfered to the science data.as soon as she had it,she looked over the data.
Sickbay
Dr .piper checked and rechecked. Finaly he found something. What looked like tiny worms that were swimming in her intestines.
“Mark! What is going on?”she asked.”either the equipment missed it or the creatures are mutating. “Mark said. “Cretures! I am being infested by creatures?”chapel asked. “They appear to be worm like creatures. Yes I am afraid that you are. If I am right the entire landing party is infested by these creatures as well. ” piper said. “Is there any thing you can do about it?” chapel asked. “Not yet. I will work on it. “Piper said.
Dr. Piper suspected that he probably had the worms as well.he had one of his doctors mcbanga check him out. Sure enough he carried the worms.
Qurters of Addison and Ryan.
“You ok ad?”Ryan asked. “I am not sure ry. I feel weird. “Addison said.”should we get you to sickbay?”ry said. “I am not going to call the doc for every issue. I just need to lay down. ” Addison said.
Addison was about to go to her bed room . “now hear this,all landing party members please report to sickbay. “Lt. Palmer’s voice said .
“I gues that settles it !” Addison said.  “I gues it does addie.” her husband said. They got ready to go to the infirmary.
End of chapter two.

Siren call part six

All over the ship, females revolted against the crew. They acted like zombies. They were not mindless. They stil had there faculties.they used it against the ship and crew.
Palmer and the orther patients escaped from sickbay. The security people were over whelmed. Suddenly they felt the transporter beam.
They emerged on the bridge of the hendrini vessel. Klasic hugged the new arrivals. “Welcome ! Welcome I have longed for this day. I have longed for you to become part of our family . part of our future. Part of the future!”klasic declared.
“You are the future!” Palmer said.”you have rescued us!we are eternally greatfull!”mescha Davis said. “We are yours!” yeoman Smith said. “You are our future!”Christine chapel said .
“You are myne. As you now depend on me,I depend on you. ” klasic told them. “We are one!”yeoman Julianne said. “Indeed!”klasic said.

Gioto suspected that the self dustruct had been activated. He went over to the engineering station. “Just as I suspected!they have activated self destruct! “The security chief now In command announced. ” we can deactivate it can’t we?”Kylie asked.
“If I am right. They have set up a counter measure.I doubt they would make this easy!”gioto commented. “Agreed but what do we do about it?”dasale asked.
The commander took out his communicator . “addy are you stil with us?”he asked. “That is an interesting way to put it. Reports of my joining the hendrini herem have been greatly exadurated. “Addison said.
“Glad to hear it! Look adison self destruct has been activated. We can’t shut it off. “He said. “Alright ! Get ready to evacuate. I am going to try a few things. You may have to leave just in case!”she said.
“Understood good luck!”he said. “Thank you bary ! I think we Will need it! ” adison said. “Begin evacuation!”the commander ordered. “Sending order!”Leslie said.
Addison headed for a Jefferies tube. She took out a communicator. “Sotril I need your help!” she said .”I an on my way. How do you know I did not sucomb ,”she asked. “I had a hunch! “Addison said.
Sotrril found her in the Jefferies tube. “I am trying to find the emergency overide. It is not where it is supposed to be. ” adison said. “The enterprise was martucuasly constructed but the finishing touches was in haste.”she said. “I remember reading about that. “Addison said.
“The blue prints are based on what was planed not how it turned out to be!” Sotril said . “I would think it would have to be hear somewhere. Come on marvic! Where did you put it. Man that guy is a loon!”Addison said. “Captain I fail to see how yelling at a guy who is light years away will help find the overide. “Sotril said. “I hate it when you make sense!”she said.
Sotril used her hand and scanned it. She found it. The node came up.”no fair!”she said. The female Vulcan activated the code. “Palmer altered the code. I can’t deactivate it!”Sotril said. “They think of every thing!”Addison said. Sotril tried to purged the computer. After a few minutes the self destruct was deactivated.
“Desaster averted once again!”Sotril said .”how did you do that?”Addison asked. “I created a computer virus that overode the auto destruct. It is an old vashar trick. “Sotril said. “You are full of surprises !”Addison said .”I do try to pull my weight around hear!”Sotril said .”Tim is really tubing off on you.you got to stop with human coliqualsm!”she said. “I will try!”she said.

“It seams your brain is generating a counter pulse that fight the telepathic charge from the hendrini. “Dr. Piper said. “So its because I’m in love?”Addison asked.”it would appear so!”the doctor said.”don’t let ry find out!”Addison said. “Funny ad!”ry said. “You know you love me!”Addison told him. “I do !”he said. Then they kissed.
“They a low you two to serve on the same ship. Even though you command and he is a subordinate?”egreer asked. “I told them either they let us be on the same ship or I would defect to the klingons!”she said. “”I don’t want to know rather or you are kidding!”Dr.piper said .
“So how is commander Sotril able to resist the telepathic suggestions?”the security commander said. “She is in love with me !”Tim said. “I don’t know that I would characterize it in that manner. “The first officer said. “He started to sing,”your going to have to face it your addicted to Tim!” he said. “You have an unusual ship “egreer said.”you have no idea! “The captain said.
Brefing room
“Although it seams that the captain and first officer are unefected by the telepathic weapon,I have been asked to remane in charge for now. We need to retrieve the crew!”the acting captain said.
“It won’t be easy. I hate to abandon the crew but we are still venerable. Perhaps we should cut our loses and retreat to federation space. ” lt. Dasale said.
“That is not an option.I respect your view but we cannot just abandon our team. At least not until we have exhausted every avenue first. “The security chief said.
The chief helmsman decided that he should drop the matter. He quickly did.
“This won’t be easy. Dr. Piper can you create a counter measure?”the chief asked. “I have created what could be a counter weapon but we won’t know until we test it in actural use!”Dr. Piper reported.
“Are we sure it only strikes females?”lt. Kylie asked. “Not definently . only anocdotaly. Not to a complete certenty. ” Dr. Piper said.
“Alright! Get the counter measure ready. Lt. Galloway prepare a security team. I want to be ready for anything. “Gioto instructed. “You got it !” lt. Galloway said.
“I want shields at maximum. I want battle drills around the clock until we I.p with the hostile. “Gioto said. “You got it!”dasale said. “Lets do this!”the acting captain said. They all got up.
Hendrini ship
“You have brought fulfilment to my life ! “Liz said. “It has only just begun my dear. The old existence will pale in comparison to the new life. “Klasic feared.
Liz smiled. “I know that is true !”she told him. “You have already changed our life! “Yeoman Smith said. The man in charge smiled. He hugged the two former crewman of the enterprise. They kissed him.
“You are our future! We see that now!” mescha said. “You are our future!”klasic said.
The officers on the bridge got very quiet when he said that. They knew what he was saying was true. None of them liked to be reminded of that fact.

“I found them ! They were doing everything they could think of to mask there signature but I got um. “Tim reported.
“Send the coordinance to the helm.Ryan you know what to do. “The security chief temporarily in command said. “Got it! laying in coordinates now!” Ryan said. “Activating course now !”lt. Dasale said.
The enterprise went to warp. The vessel spared no expense heading for the enemy vessel.

“Excelentcy! The enterprise was not destroyed. It is heading on a direct intercept course for us . ” the sansor officer reported.
“They should have been destoyed!”the executive officer said. “The crew of the enterprise is very resourceful. This is a minor set back. One I intend to correct very shortly ! Plot an intercept course of our own. ” klasic said.
“They have plotted an intercept course ! “Tim said. “They are eiger to fight us. Thsts ok with me! I dont shy away from a fight. Lets do it!”Gioto said.
The enterprise and the hendrini vessel headed for each other. The enterprise got off the first fire.
The hendrini warship returned fire on the enterprise. The battle had began! The battle to retrieve there crew was in Ernest.
To be concluded.
Notes
I did not have a lot of Canon source info for Gioto or dasale. I am trying to go with Information I have. There is not much on piper but you can kinda read though the lines. Kinda crochity set in his ways. Not afraid to give his perspective.
As for the reason for hasty finishing up of the enterprise,I have no idea .I will work on that in the course of this fan series.
I think that Larry marvic being eccentric is not far fetched.

Rumors of war part two

“Medical log. After the emurgentcy evacuation from the
Enterprise,on the captain’s orders,i have gone to a planet right smacked in the midle of our and the space belonging to the Klingon empire. The planet’s inhabitents claim to be organians. “Dr. Piper said in his log.
“We are not how we apear. We were once as you were. We changed form. We became distent from our old form. We became obsorbed in our new sate. Eventually we became curious about humanoids. It was hard to believe we had once been as you are now!”alborne said.
“We decided to observe humanoid life. We decided to only observe,not to interfear. “Claymare said.
“Then how do you explain those who attacked our ship?”Tomlinson asked.
“Please be patcient lt. We are getting to that!”trafane said. The young phaser specilist apologized. The organians seemed uninterupted by his coments.
“We travaled all over what you call the galaxy. Even in our sate we have discussions,debates,disaagrements. It led to two major camps you might say. The two factions became unable to colaborate!”alborne said.
“What are these two camps? What was the contension?”ensign davis asked.”well most of us wanted to observe only. Some wanted to interveign at times. We stoped a Klingon-andorian war that would have engulfed the qudrent 130 years ago. We simply stoped there technology from working. Cooler heads prevailed!”claymare said.
“Some believed that humanouds in there curent sate were too dangerous to govern themselves. They believed that humanoids needed to be overseen for a time. They needed to be controled even enslaved really. “Trafain said.
“Where have we heard that before?”piper asked. “We tried to work together. Soon it became an untenible alience. The two factions decided to part ways. At first we tried to go our seperate ways in peace. A kind of unofficial non agresion pact. It did not end that way. “Claymare said.
“The colonization faction if you will,started to advance there plot. They decided to destabolize the galaxy in order to recreate it in there image. They enginered asteroid bombardments. They even enginared supernovas. They also stered up fighting,revolutions,insurections. A multi front proxy war. They also started wars between empires. “Alborne said.  “Our side was unsure what to do.do we engage in a proxy war.do we risk a war with our seperated brethren ? “Claymare said.
“I take it for now you have done nothing ?”juli anne said. “You muat understand if we do get involve we risk what you would call a clash of the titens. It could lead to the destruction of the universe! ” trafaine said.
“What are you going to do about all this?” Tomlinson asked. “We have not decided !”alborne said. “You admit that if the colonization faction get there way,humanoids will be enslaved. “Mesha said.
“If we do get involve,the universe could be uterly destroyed. We are afraid to get into this!” Amboyne said.
“Is enslavement any better?”mescha said. “I knew that you say that. You humanoids really would perfer destruction to slavery. It is not bluster. I wish it was but it is not!” Claymare said.
“You would destroy yourselves to avoid enslavement. “Yes we will!”dr. Piper said. “If you help us,we might have a chance to servive or be free!”Tomlinson said. “We are considering it!” Alborne said.
“While you pounder the federation and the galaxy burns!” Dr. Piper said. The organians did not respond. They had nothing they really could say.
The enterprise was adrift. The vessel was not holding stationary.the vesel was drifting by inertia. The crew feared the vesel would drift too far into the gas gient. The shartles and esape pods headed for the enterprise. On the perchivile lowel,Addison supervised the recovery and retreval operation.
“This is going to be tricky. Every one stay on your toes!”Addison said. Every one agried. Addison and tim were at the helm controls. The armada of shartles serounded the adrift constitution class vessel. The shartles moved into position. The shartles were on all sides.
“They are in position !”tim mathews said. “Ok lets do this!”Addison ordered.
The shartles began to activate tractor beams. “Beams are active addy!”tim said. “Tractor beams are holding !” Chief pitcarin said. “Alright! LetS go! Have all shartles move out!” Addison ordered.
The shartles moved the enterprise out of the gas gient.without warp drive, the egress out of the gas gient was long and arduous. Addison was hopful that the plan could suceed.
The enterprise was slowly being draged out of the gient. It was driving Addison nuts. She was not keen on being patcient. She knew that a captain had to be patcient. She tried to be patcient.even though it was not easy. It would be worth it.
The enterprise slowly cleared the gas gient. It entered into normal space. This operation had worked. This part was complete but the hard part was just beginning.
“Scaning. Life suport is off line.”tim said. “We wil have to use e.v.a suits. “Pitcarin said.”engines are off line. Com down as is shields and weapons !” Tim said.”we have our work cut out for us. The first priority is life suport then engines then weapons and com system! “Addison said. The crew agreed.
“Alright! Pitcarin you know your job. Tim supervise life suport. Kyille weapons ans shields. Palmer will overse the com system. “Addison said.
The ship was sicured. Addison and several in the crew began to reenter the ship. The crew began to look around.
Yeoman smith looked around the ship. It looked erie. It did not like the enterprise she remembered. It did not look like home. She hoped that it would be once again. She wanted it to be. She wanted to return to the way it was.

Commander sotril tried to find lt. Commander gioto. After looking around,she found him.she ran over to the security commander.
“Don i have been looking for you ! “Sotril said. “I heard that you are going to take command of the exiter. I assume that you will want me to take command of the security section.”he said. “Actually i had a different position for you!”she said. He was surprised and confused. “What would that be?”she asked.
“First officer!”sotril said. “Wait a minute. I am a security offficer not a command officer. That is not my fortay.”he said.
“That is why i want you. You are a trusted advisor to the captain and you say what is on your mind. I want that. “Sotril said.
“I have nothing else to do so why not? “Gioto said. “That is not quite how i wanted you to respond but ok. Welcome to the team commander. “She said.
The commander exstended her hand to him. He took it. He hoped that he would not regret this decision.
“So i heard about captain tracy but why not keep the exo?”he asked. “She is on matunity leave! Ironic i know

End of part two
Notes
Although i have tried to omit any references to star trek enterprise. I did get a lot of stuf on the organians from “observer efect” it is an episode i really like.
Robert Tomlinson was a torpedo specilist on balience of terror. He died hoers after trying to get maried. That was an alternative universe.
Lt. Alden was communications officer in “where no man has gone before ”
Commadore bob Wesley apeared in ” the ultimate computer ” and they also apeared in the animated episode “one of our planets is mising!” He was played by bary russo who also played giito.

Interstellar law part two

U.s.s enterprise
Confrence room
  At the confrence was captain mccomic,commander sotril,doctor pipper,dr. Danner, lt commander giotto, lt. Mathews,Ryan,lt. Dassale,yeoman smith,lt. Palmer and chief enginer pitcarin.
” Lt!”Addison ordered. ” the laugue of interstellar law was formed 400 years ago following the slaver war. The league inforces a series of treties agred upon following that war. The league was set up to enforce the articles of interstellar law and to encourage dialogue and diplomacy. To solve problem without violence and war fare. The united federation has agred in principle to the article but is not a member. There have been disagrements between the two. A lot of it is a turf war. The federation see the league as weak. The league sees the federation as just another intergalatic nation sate. The league has done some good. It has also bean used by member worlds in order to advance pet causes or to go after pet peaves. ” lt said.
“What is the case against the tawain?”Addison asked. ” It goes back to a year ago. The orions were using a outlying area of space near the federation border as a staging area for raids on shiping in several near by area. The uss tawain answered a distress call from a convoy. During a battle with the orions,one of the orion vessels was destroyed. The tawain crew clamed it was a combetent. A laurien named omeal quzert clamed that the ship was in the area and was not a combatent. The praliminary inquiry sided with the taiwan. Two orher inquiry also cleared the captain and crew. Mr. Quzert has been presing this to anyone who will listen!” Mathews said.
“The crew of the tawain is acused of murder and indiference and other charges. The league is alowing us to transport a ligal team consisting of samual t cogly and commander arial shaw. They have also agried to alow us to beam those who were not onbored at the time of the incident. I do need to say if we feel that the trial is not fair,we may have to atempt other meens if sicering there release. I hope to avoid that!”Addison said.
“I am concerned that the league may try to acess files not related to the event. While we have fairly good relations with the league as a hole,there are some members who we do not including the gorn,tholiens and anipovnoids and nazaka. If they acesed fleey strength and other data we might never recover!”gioto said.
” We are trying to retreve the ship as well! “Adison said. ” I will be debrefing the tawain crew to hopfuly find out how much they accesed. I want battle drils just in case. I want all non away team.members to remain on ship. There will be no leave. I want to avoid any of the usual diegnostic and maintinance usually associated with docking at a port of call. Are there any questiones. Dismished!”Addison said.the crew got up.
“Captain. Com officer lt. Angela martine,her fiencae is a weapons officer lt. Robert Tomlinson. “Tim said. “Thank you. I will arange to speak to him. “She said. Tim left the room.
“Sir. I did not want to mention it in the brefing but lt. Leslie served abored the taiwan during the incident. He should not be on any landing parties. ” Gioto said. “I will make sure he is not. Thank you for briging it to my attention. I will speak to him.mayby he has some insight!” Addison said.
“I hope I’m wrong. I have a feeling this is not going to go well. Then again i am a bit of a wory wart. Comes with waring a red shirt i gues. “He said.
“I have some misgivings about this mission myself. I am going to keep my eyes oppen. I intend to be very carefull. I know you will be watching . Please share your thoughts. I am going to need every one on this!” She said.”thank you i will!” He said.
  Office of security chief.
“Your grounding me on this mission ?”leslie said. “It nothing personal paul. You were on bores the tawian during the incident and diplomatic imunity may not apply. We don’t totally recognize this court. Its for the best'” gioto said.
“Captain kravnosky is a good men. I enjoyed serving under him!”leslie said. “Look Addison is a straght schooter. She won’t let the crew of the taiwan get the shaft. Sit tight!”gioto said. “That is not my nature neil! If it were you,could you sit on the side lines?” Leslie asked. ” Paul star fleet can be risky especialy for security personelle. We risk our lives when vital. It is not in this case. If you go your a libility. This is for the best. You can help in a suport role. If i know you,you will contribute to this misson. You always have come though when we have nedded yu. This time it has to be from behind the scenes. ” Gioto said. “Have you always been this much of a hard but?” He asked. “I am prety sure i was worse!”the commander responded.
Confrence room
“You wanted to see me captain?”Tomlinson asked. “Bob come in. I wanted you to know i will do all i can to get all of the crew of the tawan free including Angela !”Addison said. “Thank its meens a lot. I am really woried'”he said.
“I poord over the data. Every thing i have seen convinces me that that ship was conbative. I suspect that this is some beuracrat trying to make a naime for himself at the expense of the taiwan !”Addison said.
“Can they get a fair trial?” Robert asked. “I want let them be rail roaded. ” Addison said. “Thank you!”he said.
Later on bridge

Any grand jury would fail to indite!” Cogley said. “I know that. You know that. This might not be about the facts !” Addison said. “I hope cooler heads will prevail!” Shaw said. “As do we all!” Addison said. “Hopefully the judge will see though this case and dismiss it!” Cogley said.”i understand that you  have been fully brefed?”sotril said. “This is not my first trip to the rodeo commander!” He said. “Rodeo?”she said. “Not important. Am i a diverson or do i really have a job?”cogley said. “You do for now! ” Addison said. “That’s what i figured!” Samual said. They left the transporter room. The door closed behind them.
  The enterprise departed the star base and headed for the planet parliament. Capital of the league of interstellar law.
“Now ariving at the planet!” Ryian said. “Assume standered orbit! “Addison ordered. “Standered orbit acheved. ” dasalle anounced. “The leugue says they are ready to beam over the crew of the taiwan not charged!” Palmer anounced. ” Have them beamed abored at once! ” Addison ordered. ” Secritary general uda naruka. Of grazella has requested to meat with you at your erliest convenience!” Palmer said. “Arange for him to meat me in an hour”Addison said. “Grazela. Odd choice to be the leader.
