The jouney part two

“Commander’s log,lt. Commander spock and i are on bored a shartle.while on route to the enterprise, an unknown ship has just entered the star syistom. They are heading right for us. “Addison said in her log. 

“The vessel is traveling at warp 8.9. It is armed with five photon toroedo banks. I am reading five phaser banks. The vessel is renforced by a material i do not recognize.  “Spock said. 

“It does not match with any known ship in the fedetation data base.”Addison said. “Should i atempt to hail the vessel?” spock asked. “Do it.”she said. 

Spock activated the com chanel. “Attention incoming vessel. This is the scout vessel Galileo.  We represent the united federation of planets. We request you please contact us. “The vulcan said.

The warahip mantained course for the shartle. “No response. “Spock said. “I am moving us away from the unknown.”addison said 

The shartle tried to move away from the unknown combat ship. “The ship has powered up its tractor beam.”spock said. 

“They get us in there tractor beam,its over for us. “Addison anounced. “That is a reasonable supposition commander. “Spock said. 

Addison knew how to think in her feet.  Her strategy was to keep moving. Stay in the game. Font give up. Move in baby steps. Dont give the oponent time to catch there breath. Wage a battle by slow attrition.  

The shartle flew into the ship’s main deflector dish. The shartle used the deflector to push off. The shartle used the inertia to generate more speed. The shartle went to the sship’s wall and bounced off. 

The shartle kept an interesting maneuver comnander.”spock said “acts of desperation mr. Spock. I refuse to yield. We cannot allow ourselves to be captured by these people. Who knows there intent. Thid could be a scouting party for a larger invadion or they could want our orgons. I am not keen on either. ” addison said. “Nor am i commander. I perfer my organs intact. “Spock answered. 

“Why spock was that a joke?”addison asked. “No it is a statement of fact.  I assure you that it is quite accurate.  “Spock said. “I agree with you whole heartily. “Addison responded.

The combat ship flew up to the shartle at high warp. It attempted to swoop down on the smal craft. 

Addison tried to acess the computer. “Acess the helm from your station.  I have an idea. “She said.  “You got it commander. Why do i think that your about to do something inadvisible and extremely dangerous? ” the vulcan asked. “I would like to say your way off but your not. “She told him. “I had a feeling that was the case. “The vulcan told him. 

The shartle emited an experimental pulse. The pulse hit the warship. The ship was temporily stuned.addison took advantage of the situation.  The scout craft flew inside the vessel. It bounced off the shields again.

The craft was catapulted away from the combat ship.  Addison emited a second pulse. The shartle kept going. 

“Are you ready for another desperate act?”addison asked. “I gues that i have to. “Spock said.”that is not quite the vote of confidence i was hoping for but ok. I gues it will have to surfice. “She said.

The ship was able to overcome its temporary paralysis. The combat ship neared the shartle.  The shartle apeared to be two ships. The ships went in oposite direction. 

The ship was not sure which ship was the real one. The real craft used that to its adventage. The craft tried to get away.  

“Spocj find me a nebula or an asteroid field!”she ordered.  Spock scaned the navigation program.he tried to find a safe harbor. A place to hopefully get away from the persuing warship. He knew he did not have a lot if time.  The next few secconds could determine rather or not they sucesfully get away or not. 

“I am detecting an asteroid field. I am ploting course for the field.”spock said. “Sounds good. “She said.

The shartle headed for the field. The ship neared the craft. The ship got the tractor beam ready to activate.addison took the shartle to its limits and beyound. 

The shartle went into the asteroid field. The shartle kept going. “Holding position.  “Spock said. “Lets go in futher into the field.”addison sugested.

The ship went further into the asteroid belt. The shartle then held position.  “For the moment they are not persuing! “Spock said. “They wont give up. They will wait. We brought ourselves more time. We now need to come up with a plan. “Addison said. “Agreed.  “Spock said. 

Past

Vulcan 

“My farther does not aprove of me?”a ten year old spock said. “Spock he values logic. He is from a noble family on vulcan. The sarek family has been actively involved in government service. There is pressure for all in this family to excell. You have grown Spock.  You have marured. You will bring hornor to him. I know you will. You will brung honor to your family and to vulcan.  I know he vailures you in his way. He has to be harsh on you. Hr has to push you. He knows you will live up to your potential. You will exceed his expectations “his morther amanda said.

“What if i do not morther.  What if i fall short?” the young Spock asked. “I know you wont. You do not give up. You do not accept failure. The kass wan ordeal.you suceded because you did not give up.dont give up spock. Dont give in to mediocrity.  I know you wont.”she said.

Sarek ovetheard the conversation.he took it all in. He then returned to what he had been doing. 

Earth

“Addy stil out there?”Edward asked.”she would not be our addy is she did not.  To me they are just stars. Not to her. I will never be able to keep her on earth will i” silvia Mccormick asked. “No. No matter where she goes she will always call hear home. This will be always be her home.  “Edward said. 

Later

“Mom does not want me to go to space does she?”addison at age 8 asked. ” she wants you hear. You can’t blame you. She wants you safe. Space is dangerous. “Edward said.

“I know. It is also wounderous. I have to see it.”she said. “You have the dream of stars. Your mom is proud of you. She knows your destened to go out there. She will always worry about you. Promise you will always come back to us. We never want to replace your biological parents. We want you to always be a part of our family.  “He said. “I wont. I will always come back.”she told them. 

The shartle waited.  The shartle had to stay alive. They had to endure.  Could they?

“I see. Can we meet her?”mrs Mccormick said.”of course. Follow me” carol hassan said. The Mccormick folowed the lady to a play area. A young girl of six was playing with a doll and a replica of an early federation starship. 

“Addison this is mr and mrs mccomic.” the lady told her. “Hi this is gracie. She is a starship captain. I want to be a starship captian some day. “She told them.

“So the transporter won’t filter it out?”Addison asked. “Negative !” we looked into it. The microbes seam to be able to servive even in the bio filter. ” DR. Piper said. “Of course. I figured that they would adapt!”sotril said.
“Are you ready ?”piper said. “Ready as I Will ever be! ” Addison said.the transporter was activated. The two were beemed over to one of the contentment pod.
DR. Elizebeth danner was still under the influence of the microbe.she was definitely not  herself. ” the. Hendrini will prevail against you. They will defeat you!”danner said. Other crewman followed in.  They chanted pro hendrini slogans .
The transporter was activated. The patients were beemed away. They were beemed to a chamber near where Addison and sotril were.

“I am just an intern. You don’t have to think of me as a staf psychologist maybe we will become good friends. “Liz said.”don’t count on it!”Addison said.
Addison saw Liz stugiling. “Gues you were right lizzy!”Addison said. Adison hoped this could be resolved quickly.
Enterprise
L.t Palmer had been trying to find a way out of the decon chamber.there did not seam to be any. In most cases this was the last line of defense from an infectious pathogen. “Ready for the next one!”a voice said. “Procede!”piper ordered.
“I do not wish to leave!”plamer said. “You don’t really have a say In this Audrey!”piper said. The beam was activated. “They are studying.

  “Captains log,it was quite a whirlwind that got me hear. It is hard to beleve that all this happened in such a short amount of time. It is hard to comprehend all of it. How did I get hear? ”
“Abored the faragut we detected an odd reeding. That was how it all started. It definitely did not end there. ”
U.s.s faragut
Bridge
” captain I am detecting an unknown radiation not far from hear!” science officer sotril reported. “What kind of radiation?”Addison asked. “Uncertan! It is increasing. ” sotril reported. “This is very unusual. “Addison said.
“I should have walked away. Let the mystery be a mystery. I could not do that. I was too curios. You know what they say,curiosity killed the single cell life form. I did not listen. Hear I am,addy going bodily where angels fear to tread. ”
“The radiation is continuing to increase every few seconds. “Sotril reported. “I knew I should not investigate it. I had a very bad feeling about it. I ignored it. I figured it would be ok. ” she said.
“Ok! Ry set course for the radiation field. Helm lay in It once you have it!”Addison ordered. The course was entered in and the engines were activated. The constitution class vessel was off.
“I have a visual !” the Vulcan science officer said. “On screen! “Addison ordered. The com officer transfered the message to the Maine view screen. On the screen showed the radioactive field.
“I am detecting readings beyound the field. I cannot determine what it is. “Sotril said.
“I ordered a probe launched. My science officer launched the probe. “She said. The ship lunched the probe. The probe left the ship. The probe headed to the radioactive field.
“The probe is gone! I stil have talemitry!”the Vulcan officer said. “Then the probe was gone. The probe was destroyed.  I should have walked away. I felt this could be a threat to the federation and to the galaxy. In my mind I had to act. ”
“Send to star fleet command all the data we have accumulated on the radioactive field!”Addison ordered. The com officer complied.
“We had shields up. Our weapons were standing by. We were ready to go. I knew it was a bad idea. I felt I had to act. I felt it was up to me to deal with this issue so I did.”
“Helm! Take us in!”she ordered. The faragut headed in at warp eight.the vessel headed inside. On the orther side the ship came out. “Detecting a Klingon battle crusher! Its weapon and screens are at maximum!” sotril announced. “Raise shields. Weapons on stand by!”she ordered. “Weapons at your command!”the helm reported.
The ship was ready for anything.
The Klingon ship was also ready. The Klingon vessel opened fire on the faragut. Adiison gave the order to return fire.
“The battle was intense. My crew were highly talented. Thanks to there efforts. We were able to the  overcome the Klingon vessel. The vessel was forced to withdraw. What we did not know what was that the radioactive field was a gateway to the past. Earth ‘s past. It was my science officer who discovered that we went back to earth ‘s past. The questione was why?” she asked.
“I decided to go to the surface. The minute I transported,commander sotril reported that the Klingon had returned. This time they brought two of there closest friends. I ordered sotril to defend the ship. I was alone and abandoned. “She said.
“I am detecting alien Signiture. It is the klingons. ” one of the science officers reported. “Ok let’s follow the signature!” Addison ordered. Adison wore a t shirt,skirts and shandles. The rest of the crew also wore civilian clothing. 
“We followed the Signiture to an apartment complex. We arrived too late. They already killed the nassa worker. ”
“I looked over the weapon. Of course I recognized it.it was a batleth. A Klingon weapon used for ceremonial but also in actual use. ”
“Someone is coming”a security officer asked. Addison ordered them to leave. They ran away. Before Addison could leave,She would be captured. 
“I was arrested for murder. I declined to speak even to a lawyer. I was convicted and sentenced to death by lethal injection.I hoped someone would come to my rescue. Unfortunately it was James t kirk. “Addison said in her log.
   “Captains log,time traval has been the stuf of science fiction and fantasy. During an exploration of a dying planet,we discovered We could go back in time. Then an accidental swing shot around the Sun sent us back into the 1960s.we went on our own to witness a pivotal event in human history.”
“This time was similar to those events but also very different.
“It all started for me back in the twenty third century.we were on slandered patrol. Things were prety quiet.when that happens that usually memes trouble is coming. I did not suspect anything like that but I should have. ”
“Captain we are gettin a distress call it’s from the faragut!”uhua said. “Apearently they were forced to return to our time line. They quickly called the nearest ship in the area. That was us.  ”
“Mr. Checov set a course for the faragut. Mr. Sulu maximum warp.”kirk ordered. The enterprise headed to the sister ship. ”

“So let me get This staght! The klingons are attempting to tamper in the afairs of our past?”kirk asked.”yes! They seam to be targeting key officials involved in your space program!”sotril said.
“It was only matter of time before the klingons discovered time traval.”Spock said. “This could create a new cold war. “Mccoy said.
“I decided that the enterprise had to go back in time. Starfleet had been skidisheed about time traval. I myself had bean a little reluctant about time traval myself. I decided to take us back to the past. I ordered the faragut to stay in the present well our present. ”
The enterprise was able to use the Klingon method of time traval. The vessel headed back to the past.
“Apon arriving back on earth in the twenty first century. I was horrified to learn that Addison was on death row for the murders. ”
“Your lawyer is hear!  A guard told her. “Lawyer ? I don’t have a lawyer!” she said. “His name is Perry cogly!” the gaourd said.
“Perry cogly?”Addison asked. “I had to think of something. Look I am getting you out of hear!”kirk said.”no not until the last possible second! Is that clear?”she said.
“I tried to follow her directive. With the situation falling apart. I decided I had to act. I did. ”

They beleve that the space program is a threat to the zarden empire. In order to stop it they target those involved in the Saturn project!”Hotchner said.
“This cult must have mass hysteria. They all beleve that they are zardans?”read asked. “A cult that believes that they are aliens?”Morgan asked. “All cults beleve they are chosen usually to purify an existing religion.

I would rather consult with a controling constitional authority before acting unilaterally. “Merek said.
“Do you not trust him?” The pilot asked. “I don’t know. I have nothing that makes me not trust him. I just don’t know. I want to consult someone in authority before acting. If we can’t contact the federation or star fleet,i don’t know!” Merek said.
Khan studied the records intently. He tried to trace what hapened from the time he left until the present day. He was not impresed. He felt that something was lost. This society lacked pasion. That was he intreperted those events. He valued strength above all else.he preceved that they lacked that strength. He disliked it.
This was a new universe. He was excited by the oportunities it ofered. He decided to investigate further. He wanted to learn all there was to know about it. He was quite inteligence. He had the meens to gain that knowledge. He would learn those secrets. He would not wait.

“Had the incident not occured,your life might have taken a completly different course!” Liz said. “I know. That haunts me. How could it not? “She said.
“Addison why now? “Liz said.”i had moved on. I have been kept buisy. From our visit to Vulcan,the anipovnoids then the qaurentine,i had no time to think about it. Then seing shaw brought it all back. “Addison said.

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

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

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

The challenge part four

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

The challenge part two

“Captain’s log,usually an anouncement of mariege is a joyous proclimation. Although vulcans supress all emotion,usually they can come to the conclusion that sutch an arangement is agreible and logical. With my first officer i don’t sense that. Something is off. I am just not sure what it is !”
” your getting maried?”addison asked. “Yes!  Tisek has been trying to get me to constent to a  bethothal for some time! I have finally relented!”she said.
“You never mentioned that you were engaged!”adison commented. “It is a private matter captain. Sense vulcan exercize non emotion we usually keep things low key!”sotril said.
“I have spent a lot of time with your people. I have a lot of friends who are vulcans. I aficiated a vulcan weding while in command of the athena. I have observed that while there is not emotion,there is a conection. Is there not between you and tisek?”she asked.
“Iam highly suportive of this notion. You have no cause to be concerned!”sotril said.
“Ok! I trust you! I am stil going to be concerned. It is in my nature! Alright! Congradulations!”she said. “Thank you!”she said. She left the room. The door closed behind her.

“You hear that we are on a new mission tim!” Lt. Keven reilly said. “Are we colecting gasious enomilies or potroling the nutral zone!”lt. Tim mathews asked. “You have not heard ?”reily said.
“No i have not! What is it?”mathews asked. “It seams our first officer is getting maried!”reily said. ” She is! To who let me gues noble tisek! “He said.
“Woa! You seam to have inside information ! You holding out on me timmy! “Reily asked. ” She said yes to him! Look i don’t want to talk about it!”he got up and picked up his food tray. ” Where are you going? You stil have food left!”reily said. “I’m suddenly not very hungery! ” mathews said.
“Timmy you ok?” Reily asked. “I’m fine kev!” Mathews said. He got up and took his food into the recycling unit. Then he left the rec room. The door closed.
He went straight to his qurters. He sat on his bed. He went over to one of the draws and opened it. He pulled out a picture. He was not sure why he kept it. There was him and sotril. He had his arm around her. He was beaming. She was stoic of course. The event seamed like yesterday.
“What are you doing ? “Sotril asked. ” I want to capture this!”he said. He took out an imaginer. “Why do you human incist on capturing every moment on a device. Your brain is capible of storing the memory! This is highly ilogical!” She said.
” I don’t need to capture every moment but this one is special !” Tim said. “Very well procede!”she said. He put his arm around her. He clicked the picture.
Once that was a precious memory. Now it was a bitter reminder. He decided to put the picture back in the draw. He closed it.

“The hournor is ours. We are privledged to have you in our family. You brought much hournor to your family and to your people !”the prefect sargrin said.
“Hello sotril! Convincing her to mary me took some doing. Sotril never rushes into anything . I can apreciate that. It is a favorible thing that she has agreed to this union!”tisek said. “Yes. I wish you both all the best!” Addison said. They thanked her.
