“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.
“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.
“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.
“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?
End of part two.
