The sector was insignificant. The Klingon annexed it into the empire simply because they could. They did not Realy want it. Pride forced them to hold on to it.
The space was calm. There we’re stars but that was it. The area was not heavily patrolled. No one saw the need. Nothing important happened hear.
In the darkness of space ,a smal dot appeared. The dot got bigger. It filled the sky. It was not a dot any more. It was a mass.was it really solid was not certain.it looked solid from space.
The mass did not stay stationary.it started to expend. It kept expending. Going further Into Klingon space. Eventualy it neared a setilite.
Monitor post 115
Dr. Terisha obk scanned the area. She was assigned to a post no One cared about. She was a scientist. That was her passion. In the federation or Romulus she would probably be a university professor but hear she was nothing.
Then the computer displayed talemtry form the probe. She looked it over. “What is that?”she asked. She saw how it expended.
The facility’s commander had not noticed that something was going on. If he did,he would not had cared unlike Trisha,he was not a scientist. He was a solider. He did not have any connection. He was assigned hear.
She did not dislike lt. D,jorn, she did not like that he was not interested in what this station was supposed to do. She believed that this base could be an asset to the empire. He would not give it a chance.
“Lt. Hezek! “She said. The lt did not particularly like terisha. He hated this asigment but he had to do this job well. He hoped that he would one day be promoted to a far better job.
No matter what she wanted,he acted like she was bothering him. She was a women and a scientist . those we’re two strikes against her. “Yes!”the Klingon in charge asked. She showed him.
He was a typical warrior. He did not show visible signs of fear.this did get to him. “Get me commander gekear!”he ordered.
“Sir! This is no ordinary emergency.whatever that mass is it is a threat to the empire!”she said.”we have a clear chain of command.my immediate is the commander. “He said.
“This is urgent! Do not entrust this information to a mere commander. Contact the military high command.this is worthy of there attention I assure of that.”she told him.
He thought it over. “Very well!”he said. He was annoyed . he knew that despite her lack of reverence for him or his position she was correct. He looked to the com tech. “Send to admiral zhakel !” the lautanent ordered the com officer. The female at the com agreed. She sent the messege.
“Your certain of this ! This is not a scientist with too much time on there hands!”deret the chief of staff said. “One should never threaten the wind General. This is not sound and furry signifying nothing. “His aid said. “Sir! The chancellor will see you!”the body guard said.
The General entered. “Chancelor an unknown force has began to infest the outlands. “He said.
“Infest! That is not a word you use often !”chancellor murkat said. “It is not a ship or a weapon well as far as we can tell. Infestation is a good a word as any. ” the military advisor said.
“Is this basically an invasion ?”the chancellor said. “In practical terms yes. It seams to takeover what it poses. It has expended.”deret said.”what is your recommendation?”the chancellor said.
“The fleet could be mobilized. No action has been taken as of yet.perhaps disruptors or photon torpedoes can have an effect on it. ” the General said.
The chancellor considered it. “Is this a life form ?”th chancellor asked.”that has not been asertaned as of yet. ” the General said.
The chancellor considered what to do next. He had felt he had to act.he did not like a mission like this. There were too Manny unknowns. He knew inaction could spell doom for the empire. “Very well ! Proceed!have the fleet randevez near the outlands. Have admiral artjos command the fleet. “The leader ordered. “I Will send the order right away. “His aid said.
The chancellor dismissed the General. He left the office.he gave the tradional Klingon salute.the chancellor returned it. The underling excited .
The chancellor had to appear confident at all times.never show fear. He was concerned. If the Pla failed the mass would keep on expending. The empire could be extinct.perhaps the whole f
Galaxy was in jeopardy.
Admiral artjos read the order. He ordered his second in command kor to look them over. “Make it happen!”he said. Kor agreed.
End of part one.
Setting. This is probably around 2236 in an alternate universe.
“So ! Who I hope to one day be my adopted daughter is your mini me?” Elisabeth danner asked.”it would appear so!”Addison said.”I see. She has been a complete mystery from the get go now even more so!” Liz said .
“I know. Have you told her?”she asked. “Not yet. I wanted to talk to you first. Do you want me to?”Liz asked. “Can I tell her Liz?”she asked.”of course! ” danner responded. “Thank you! “She said.
“I gues this came as quite a shock!”Liz said. “You have no idea !”Addison said .”you always felt like your birthperents abandoned you. You felt guilty for feeling that way. “Liz said .”where are they? Why did they abandon me and why now did they abandon Miranda?”Addison asked. “There are no easy answers. When you learn the answers you may not like those answers addy!”Liz told her.
“I know that! I have to know!”Addison said.”I expected no less from you ad!” Liz told her. “Lt. Palmer to captain mccomic!”the com officer said over the intercom.she went over to a com panel. “Go ahead Audrey!” Addison said. “Addison we are receiving a distress call from the puritan . they are requesting immediate asistence!” Palmer reported.
“Alright have ry plot a course and then have dasale head for there location. Have pitcarn ans paper’s team on stand by !”the captain ordered “you got it daddy!”the com officer said.
“I am on my way up! “Addison Said.”acknowledged! “Palmer said. “What was that?”Addison asked “what was what?”Liz asked. “When I mentioned our chief helm officer and you made a face! “Addison said. “No I did not. !”Liz protested.”you made a face! Something going on between you and Vincent ?”she asked.”no absolutely not!”she said “do you want something to go on between you and our helmsman?”Addison asked.
The turbo lift opened,the two entered. Liz smiled. Addison programmed it for the bridge.”your not answering that questione are you ?”Addison said .”no I’m not!” Liz said. “I am not afraid to admit I’m In love with the ships navigator !”Addison Said. The door opened and everyone heard what she said. .
“I really hope your referring to me ad!”ryian said.”you never know ry!”she said in response. “Not that this is too necessary at this point but captain on the bridge!”yeoman Smith declared.
“Thank you yeoman! Report!”Addison ordered.”sensors report no craft but I am picking up multiple escape pods!”sotril reported. “Are we detecting any debre or signs of explosion?”Addison asked.” Negitive. There Is a warp trail but no sign of starship destruction !”chief enginer pitcarin said. “Odd! Why would there mother ship just run off and abandon them?”Dr. Piper asked. “Wait a minute! I am detecting two distinct warp trails!”the enginer reported. “Are you sure?” Addison asked. The chief engineer gave her a look like she had two heads. She Said,”never mind!”she said.
“As soon as there in tractor range Vincent,have them tracturred in.”she ordered. “You got it !”dasale said. “Mark have medical teams on stand by!” Addison ordered.”of course! “Dr. Piper said.
The starship traveled at high warp. The captain wanted to get to the pods as as possible.
“I have a scan. This is most unusual! I am only detecting male life forms! Puritan have an integrated gender society. An all male crew is almost unheard of!”sotril said.
“Now in tractor range! “Sotril announced. The enterprise went to the pods. The pods were taken into the cargo bays. The pods began to flood into the bay.
“The pods are inside !”l.t Palmer reported. “Send the medical team to the pods. Gioto with me!”Addison said.
Addison got up from the command chair and headed for the turbo lift.the chief security officer followed the captain. The Vulcan first officer Sat down in the command chair. The captain and security chief left the bridge.the door closed.
In the cargo bay,Dr. Piper,Dr.mabanga,nurse chapel headed for the pods. A security officer opened the command pod.the medical team entered the pod.
“I am so glad you are hear. We feared we would be trapped in space!”ogreer said. “Some of us are a bit claustrophobic. “The first officer said.
“They do get a bit cramped. “Dr. Piper said. They seam to get nervous around nurse chapel and the other female in the med team. Piper found this odd. There was nothing in the databanks that indicated strife between the genders in puritan history. These people were almost afraid of women. Piper thought of himself who could be afraid of Christine ?
Addison and Gioto entered the cargo bay. “How are they?”Addison asked. “Other then some scrapes they seam to be in good health!”Dr.piper informed her. “I am captain Addison mccomic !”she said.”your the captain ?”agreer asked. “Yes I am. ” she said.
“Captain. Your ship is in grave danger so long as your in this reigion !”ogreer said.
“I don’t understand!”Addison said “our ship was taken over by aliens who call themselves the hendrini. They pretend to be some kind of missionaries for universal peace or something . they have an effect on female crew members. They used them to seize our ship. You cannot stay in charge captain. Not until your out of this area!”ogreer said.
