The jouney part three

Planet vulcan 

“Spock has excelled beyound what anyone could have imagined. “Amanda said. “Despite your hyperbole you are correct my wife.spock is bringing honor to his genetation. “Sarek said. “I was certain he would. “Amanda said.

“I will admit i had my concerns. It apears that i was incorrect.  “Sarek said. “I beleved Spock would. Yes i was being enotional. I believe in him. “She said. 

Sarek later spoke to spock.”the vulcan science acedemy is very carefull about who they alow in. This is a great hornor. “Sarek said.”yes it is. “Spock said.

Spock waw afraid to tell him the truth.  He beleved this was the best decision.  It might destroy the credibility he worked so hard to build all those years. 

“Farther i cannot go to the vulcan science adememy?”spock asked.”why?no vulcan has ever refused an appointment to the science acedemy.  It is considered a great privilege. “Sarek said.

“I have to decline father.  I believe my skills are best geared to something orther then the science acedemy.  I believe my skills  are best suited to join star fleet.”spock said. 

“There are few vulcans in star fleet.vulcans have saught to serve the federation in capacities other then star fleet. Star fleet is essentially  of by and for humans.”sarek said.

“I am aware of that.  I want to change that. The science acedemy deals with theoretical science. I wish to engage in more aplied science. Star fleet has dispoven long held beliefs and suposistions. Star fleet has advanced scientific understanding. “Spock said.

“Scientific reserch is an after thought. The science divisons play a secondary role to command officers.the captains are usualy what humans call grand standing. Most scientific advances were incidential. At the science acedemy you can devote yourself to science.”Sarek said.

“It would be from a distence. “Spock said. “To have to be at the forefront is human thinking. It is not logical. “Sarek said. “Vulcans do a diservice by not going into star fleet. It is not logical to cede an inportent component of the federation to another member world. Vulcan should be a vital part of the star fleet. “He said. 

“I do not agree. I am not soportive of this decison. I believe it to be based on faulty resoning. “Sarek said. “I had concluded that that would be your response. “Spock said.

“You have made your decision then? You will not retract it?”sarek asked. “No i will not revaluate it farther. “Spock told him.”i see. “His father said.

Later

“Farther sees this as a betrayl of him?”spock remarked. “I think he knows you are making the corect decison.  He would prefer that you would do things his way. “Amanda said. 

“I believe i can contribute to the universe more in star fleet.  I do not know if no man can sumon the future. History is made by smal steps. I want to make those steps.there is much we do not understand. I would like to atempt to broden our understanding.  “Spock said. “Sarek will understand in time !”Amanda told him. “I syincerly hope that he does.”spock told him.acedemy

“I don’t have the grades for star fleet acedemy “addison said. “Captain malory think that you only have to get your grades up in a couple clases. He thinks your the kind of cadet they want. ” syilvia mccomic said. 

“I can’t do it. Not really.  I am not officer material and everyone knows it “addison said.”thats not true addison.  You have a gift . i know it and captain malory knows it. The admison conite will know it ” Edward said.

Asteroid field.

“We are holding posistion.”Spock said. “Will they folow us in or wait us out?” she asked. “They could wait and then get impatcient and come in. “Spock said. “I considered that.  I have always believed that you dont have to solve every problem all at once.  Baby steps. “She said. 

“I agreee. Always look at the big picture. ” spock said. “Remind me to never play chess with you.”addison told him. “Some humans have described it as iretating. ” spock said.”why does that not. Suprise me?”she asked.

“How are you feeling?” spock asked. “I am fine. I have had some small boats of morninh sickness.it has mostly abated. “She said.

“Was the mental health commission concerned about your pregnancy and ability to serve as executive officer of the enterprise? “He asked.

“They were. They trust dr. Piper and doctor dahner. I agreed to bi weekly evaluation by dr. Piper.do you think i am cut out for this?”addison asked.

“Yes you are. You will command a starship again. You might even make admiral.”spock said.”i hope not. I intend to make captain and stay there.  “She said.”i could see that. “Spock said. 

“I hope i can command again.  “She said. “I am confident that you will. ” what about you? Are you interested in commanding a starship?”she asked.

“I am open to it. I am content with my scientific duties. Were the opotunity to present itself,i would consider it. I do not what is the human expreson crave it. I am open to command. “Spock said.

“Captain spock has a nice ring to it.”she said. His eye brow was slighly raised. “Perhaps!” he answered.  

“If i ever became captain of a starship i would cobsider you for executive officer.  “She said.”it would be an honor to serve under you.  “Spock said.”very good.”she said.

“I am suprised you and my farther seam to have a report. I assumed you named your son after him.”Spock said. 

“I did. Your farther helped deliver sarek. I was transporting him to star base 12. An young orion who wanted to prove he could play with the big boys tried to kidnap sarek in federation space to score points within the syndicate. During a battle i went into labor. I saved his life he saved myine and my son. Do you resent me spock for it?”she asked.

“No i do not. It is difficult.  I am not jelous but i supose i could be.”spock said. “I understand.  I never intended to have the relationship with your farther you wissed to have. I think the world of the ambassador.  I have a different view of him. “She said.

“I would prefer yout view of him. I would like to know my farther in the way you do. “Spock said.  “Give it time. Perhaps you will. Dont give up on him.things change.  How you and him are now is not how it will always be. “She said. “I hope that you are correct. “Spock said. “Dont let the time passby. Dont alow the gulf to get wider.”she admonished him.”i will consider it.”he said. 

The ship was strcuck. “Impact form spacial charges.”spock reported. “I gues they got tired of waiting. “She said. “It would apear so. “Spock said in response. 

“My gues is that they wont stop. This is a shartle not a starship. “She said. “I agree commander. “Spock responded. “What we fly into the egress when another cherge is coninf at us. Use the event to cetipault us in the oposite direction.”she said.”risky but it could work.”spock said.

“Is it worth the risk?”she asked. “I believe so in this casr addison.”spock said. ” a vulcan that sounds like a ringing endorsement. “She said. 

The shartle waited.  When they felt a charge, the shartle flew at the wake. The ship was pushed back. The ctaft fell backward. 

Addison and spock were able to stop the ship. The ship was clear of the asteroid field. The craft went to an all stop. 

“We are now at all stop.”spock said.”hold posistion. “She ordered. Spock did so. “Helm answering all stop.”spock reported. 

“I am detecting a direilect vessel. It is adrift. I believe  It is a relic form long ago. The ship is opetational. We coukd use it to hide out from our friends.”she said. “It is a logical conclusion.”spock said.

“I never thought any one would call one od my ideas logical espcially a vulcan. “She said.”you fear that people dont accept you?”he remarked. “I lived in space with my perents . they were a bit excentric. Then my perents died.  I never quite fit in on earth. I dont really ft in any where have. Women with no world.”she said. “I can understand that. I have never quite fit in on vulcan or on earth. You make the best if it i supose.”he said. 

The shartle neared the ship. The shartle went into the hanger deck of the unknown vessel. The ship was inside.

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.

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?

Now the jouney 

Prologue 

Vulcan

The area was a cave. Vulcans made exstensive use of caves.  Even now they still did. The former Amanda greyson found the prosoects of giving birth in a cave. Thr cave waa very developed.  It was not what she envisioned.  She was fine with it.

A midwife was there. Amanda had ajusted to life on vulcan.she had made frends hear. She respected the midwife.  Her husband looked on. He remained stoic as he usually was. 

The baby was born. He began to cry.the midwife looked him over.she presented him to sarek his farther. “Sarek your son! ” the midwife said.

He took him into his arms. He looked him over. “So human! ” he said. Amanda was tired.she tried to ignore the coment. 

Amanda wanted the best for her son.she hoped that sarek and spock could bond well whatever the non emotional equivalent was. She hoped they would get along some how.

“We unserstand your interested in adopting a child?”mrs. Hassan asked.”yes we are. We have two kids of our own but bryan is adopted.we know becuase of expansion into the frontier, things happen.  We would like to oppen our hearts  and home to a child. “Mrs Mccormick remarked. 

“Things on earth have improved substancially in the last one hundred and fithty years or so. Things do seam to happen.  We are inprresed with you. You both have a good reputation. We do have a child who needs placement. ” mrs hasan said. 

“You do?”edward mccomic asked. “A little girl. Addison jean. She was found in an esape pod. Her perents styled themselves as amateur exployers. They set out on there own adcenture. We dont know what happnesd to them,most likely, they were killed. There ship and there remains were never found. We are fairly certain thwy perished.  “The adoption agentcy oficial said. 

“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. 

They laughed.  They spent a few minutes talking.  Both perents fell in love with her almost instently. They decided to adopt her. After a time they were able to bring her home.

Mrs hassan was holding addison’s hand. Mr and mrs mccomic were wating for them.  “I got something for you addison.its toby the terg. “Edward said. She lit up and thanked him.she clutched on to him. It was a favorite for a long time. Edward picked her up. They signed paperwork and then they brought her home. 

Shartle Galileo 

“Commanders log ,lt commander spock and i have just left orbit of star base 42. We are heading back to the enterprise. “Addison said.

“So i understand you have been cleared to continue on the enterprise? ” Spock asked.

“Yes i pased all of the psicilogical evaluations.  I can continue as first officer on the enterprise. “She said.

“I am quite agreeable with that.  You are quite an asset to the enterprise crew. “Spock said.  “Thank you mr spock. That meens alot.” she said.

“I am sorry commander.  I did not meen to soy on you. I do hear things.” he said.”its ok commander. I am just sensitive about it. Sense i was a kid i wanted to be in star fleet.  If i sudently could int i dont know what i would do. Ryan can excel at just about anything. Mayby i could but i dont want to. It just make me jitery. My hormones are a bit in overdrive right now with baby number three.”she said.

“I did not meen to spy on you. As i said i am agreed with the decision to clear you for duty. “Spook said.

“Perimiter alert. “The computor vioce said. “Of course. Computor identify !”adison said.
