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.

Lt .ryian Hendricks left the bridge.he headed for the confrence room. He activated the view screen.
He had a complicated relationship with his in-laws. He liked them.they were good people.they loved Addison and there grandkids.sense Addison was adopeted,they were very protective of her.
Flashback
The day Addison introduced Ryan to her parents and siblings. They were friendly and crodjial.they liked each other.
Ryian got a chance to talk to her step farther in private. “Look your a nice guy Ryan. You would be a fine husband and I think you would be a good farther. I was hoping addy would marry a doctor or lawyer or a political person or orther profession. I was hoping she would be a doctor or lawyer or professional. I am stil hoping that she will stil decide to do that. Perhaps she will get this space thing out of her syistom. “Edward said.
“With all due respect,this space thing is who she is. ” Ryan said. “I understand your view but I disagre with it. “Edward said.
Ryan knew he was about to get reemed out. He took a deep breath and turned on the monitor. The view screen came to life .on the screen was the image of Edward mccomic.
” hello ed ! “Ryan said.”Ryan I understand that Addison was I infected with some kind of microbe ?”he asked.
“Yes sir that is correct. She does not show any syimotom but is infected. She faces the same danger that the others do.”he told him.
“You say this microbe infects female?”Edward asked. “Yes that is correct. The microbe does not affect anyone before puberty. Hanah and Miranda are not affected. “Ryan said.
“Look Ryan the choice of carers for you and Addison is your own. I may disagre with it but it is your decision. I don’t begrudge that. What of sarek and Hannah and Miranda. It is unfair for them. Mayby it is time to settle down or let them live with us ! We could provide a stable environment on earth. “Edward said.
“Look Miranda is being raised by Liz. As for sarek and Hannah I am not having this conversation right now. I understand your concern !”he said.
“Deep space is no place to raise a family Ryan. You will have to make a choice family or the stars! “Edward said. “Let me get though thud crises then we can debate this. “Ryan said .”make sure Addison come back in one peace. She May outrank you but is your duty to protect her. Even at the expense of your own life!”he said.”I know my obligation ed. “He said “I hope you do!”he said.
After the conversation ended he returned to the bridge. The security commander went over to him.”you ok?”giito asked.”it went about as well as I expected. “Ryan said.”I see!”the commander said.
“Permision to resume my duties!”Ryan asked. “Procede!”he said . he retook the navigators post.
  Decon tube.
“Every test we have run indicates that the microbe is naturally occurring. It is generated by an hendrinie. I find no evidence of genetic engineering. “Dr.McCoy said.
“Is it a life form or is it similar to sweet?”piper asked. “I can’t be sure but I am thinking it is closer to the latter!”McCoy said.in response . “it can servive even far away form the mother life form!”piper said. “It would appear so. ” McCoy said.
“Is it a parasite?” Dr. Mcbanga asked. “I find no evidence that it depends on the host to servive. It does not appear to be draining  the life energy of the host. It does render it subverient to the hendriani.” McCoy said
“It Seams off that it would be a naturally accruing phynomina. “Piper said. “”Could it be the hendribi body ajustng to the crises. Mayby the process was altered after the plague. A kind of natural contingency plan?”Mcbangga asked. “That would be the most reasonable hypothesis. “McCoy said.
“Is there any way to remove them?”piper asked. “We tried hyonilin. It has not yielded any result. We tried several agents known to cure chemical weapons or other agents with no results. The entire federation medical establishment is working on this. “McCoy said.
Decon unit
Adison paced around the room. “You do not like confine spaces do you?”the Vulcan asked. “No I don’t. My Elba stay did not help but my clostrophobia goes back a long ways. “Addison said. “I can believe that !”she said.
“Are we going to make it though this one?”Addison asked. “I believe we will. Logic. I have no evidence for my view.I believe it to be sound. “Sotril told her. “You have come a long way!”Addison told her.
Flashback
Star fleet academy
Addison remembered how she first met the Vulcan named sotril.Addison had applied to the academy and was accepted. Her parents convinced her to go to the university of alpha cinterie. She dropped out and ended up trying to go a bored a freighter. Due to her hospitalization ,her acceptance had to be reexamoned.
“You were previously accepted to the academy but things have changed.  Your erratic behavior and the hospitization that came after it. How do you explain it?”admiral benet asked.
“Sir! With all due respect I believe that there are factors to consider. I do not see my behavior as erotic. I had have an interest In deep space. I went to the university of alpha cinterie on there urging. I did not like it. It was never wanted I really wanted. ” adison explained.
A Vulcan female cadet began to speak. “Star fleet requires a great degre of commitment. I am bot certain thee have that commitment. “Sotril said.
“I believe I have demonstrated a commitment to space exploration.”adison said.
“There are concerns not just cited by your family but also by the staf if the Elba two facility!”captain komack said. “I disagre with that asestment “Addison said.
“I am not sure you have the temperament to be a star fleet officer!”sotril said. “You have definitely come a long way!”adison said.

“You look weary Mark?”Dr. Mcbanga said. “I am! This doctor McCoy. Apart from the incident with Khan,I knew little about him.I did some checking. “Piper said.”oh! What did you find out?”the younger doctor asked.
“He was born and raised in Georgia.he considers himself an old country doctor. He hates transporters.He has a daughter Joanna. His divorce from Diana’s mother has left him a bit bitter. He has been a bit listless. ” piper said.
“How did he get to be a lead doctor on this case? Dr. Mcbanga said. “Rumors is he is ronaticly involved with someone in the surgeon general’s office. There us another rumor he and high comisonor faris go back a ways. ” piper said. “I see. You trust him?”Dr.Mcbanga said. “I think so. We will see. I would perfer to have it settled within the enterprise family. I will make sure the family is protected. “Piper said.

Notes
Unlike tantilous ,Elba three apeared to  a mental asylum facility not a prison . it was unclear. For the purpose of the universe series ,Elba two will be a mental hospital planet.
It has been Assumed that Dr. McCoy was divorced. It was never mentioned In the series. It was adresed in the 2009 star trek movie set in an alternate universe created by Nero destruction of the Kelvin.
Admiral Richard bennet was the admiral who presided over a review of kirk’s tempering with the kobioshi muru test in star trek 09.he was played by Tyler Perry.
The rank of field prmius is  equivalent of a Commodore. It has never been mentioned in the series. It was depicted In “the final frontier” written by Diane Cary. This is one of my favorite star trek novels.
Commander charvineck is the female commander in “the enterprise incident” during the third season. Her name was never given on air. I believe the charvinack originates with ” the Vulcan heart “by josepha Swartz and Susan Sherman.it May predate that. Vulcan heart is another favorite novel.

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.
