“Captain’s log,the task force successfuly shut down methusilah and imobilized most of kahn’s forces. Kahn is atempting to evade us. We are doing all we can to catch up with them. ”
“They have gone passed maximum warp!”daystrom said.”how is that possible ? Oh yea methusilah. No ofense doc but your invention is really started to iretate me!”gioto said.
“I assume the command ship is using your prototype. Then the two others are using mini divises he built. “Addison said.”a sound hypothosis!”sotril said.
“They are holding at warp 9.2,i doubt they can go any faster. “Kyile said. “Lets hope not! “Addison said.
The enterprise and three orther ships headed for the three rougue ships.
“Bridge to engineering !”Addison said. “Addy i can’t push the warp engine beyond maximum warp. “Pitcarn said.”i thought you were a mericle worker!”she said. “Within reason!”pitcarin said.
“We can’t jam the warp drive?” Smith asked. “Not from this distence!” Kyile said. “I am not leting kahn or Alison get away. Not this time! “Addison said.
” What if we beamed a photon torpedo designed to hit methiselah! We could force the ship out of warp! “Gioto said. “You can’t predict where the torpedo will materialize or the precise location of the constilation. It is a schot in the dark!” Kyile said.
“Is there any chance of this working ?”Addison said. “Its fairly slim but there is a chance!”gioto said. ” Sotril your usually the vioce of reason,what sayeth you?”Addison asked.
“It does have a chance of success. It is a slim chance. I believe it could work!”sotril said.
“Gioto,kyile get on it !”Addison ordered. The two agreed. They left the bridge entered the turbo lift. The turbo lift door closed.
Kyle,gioto and a security and engineering team prepared a photon torpedo. “Takigawa do you have a lock on the torpedo ?”gioto asked. “Got it commander!”the chief said. “Enerzize! Hear goes nothing !”the security chief said. The transporter activated the transpoter beam. The torpedo was beamed away.
The torpedo was beamed from a long distence. The torpedo emerged near the constilation. The torpedo detonated.
The torpedo struck the constilation. The wake hit the constitution class vesel. The vessel was forced to reduce speed.
“The constilation is at warp 8.2!”sotril reported. “Mutch better! Match course and speed !”the captain ordered. Irina and dassale ploted the course.
The enterprise and the task force caught up to the ship. The enterprise fired as soon as it was in wepons range.
The enterprise lunched a photon torpedo right at the area where methiselah was. The device was weekond. The enterprise unleashed a volley of phasers at the area.
“Methisulah is off line!”joiquin said. “No!!!”khan said. The rougue ships hit back on the starfleet ships. Several decks were hit.
“We need to deplete there shields !”Addison said. Addison got up from the command chair. “Sotril take over!”Addison said. “Addy! What are you doing ?”liz said. “I will explain later!”Addison said. “Oh gosh!”liz said. Addison left the bridge.
Addison ran to an airlock. She put on an e.v.a suit. She took some spacial charges and other devices. She went to the airlock. “Now we end this !”Addison said. She closed the airlock. She depreserized the air lock. Then she opened the door. She headed out.
She activated the thusters. She neared the constilation. She found an airlock. She was able to pry open the door. She ganed acess to the ship and went inside.
She had the phaser rifle ready. She moved out. She ran to the a shield generator. She fired first at an augment. She stunes him. She acted in a stelth mannor.
She found a wall near the shield grid. “Mat is going to kill me!”she said. She took out a charge. She set it up. She got out of the way. She then presed the detonate button. The charge exploded and spread.
“Our shields are down! “McPherson reported. ” We have been borded!”joiquin anonced.” Addison ! Abandon ship! We will regroup. This is not over! We have started over before and we will again! “Khan declared. ” Where are you going?”joiquin asked. “To settle an old score!”khan said. He left the bridge. The turbo lift closed.
The crew began to evacuate. The loyal task force began to send bording party.
Addison moved around. She wanted to find Alison. She walked into a coridor.she saw kahn. “We meat again! “He said.”you have a second chance, you ruined it! You could have contributed in a positive way. “She said.
“I am a conquer. I canot do anything . Could Alexander farm,could napoleon be a Sheppard? Could colnel green be an engineering. War is my blood,my veins ! Struggle defines me!”he said.
“It enslaves you! You could have been so much more!” Addison said. “I have chosen my path! It is my road. ” He said.
He raised his phaser. She raised hers. He threw his phaser down the room. She thews her. They ran towards each orther. He tried to tackle her. She pushed him away.
“I am not a little girl! I can hold my own!”she said. They roled around on the floor of the coridor. She deflected a punch from kahn. She struck kahn.
Suddenly gioto and a security team neared kahn and Addison. “Parting is sutch sweet sorrow. You are granted a repreve ! It won’t last long. We will meat again ! “Kahn asured her.
“Stand down kahn!”gioto said “not today!”he said. He grabed Addison. “Back off!”khan said. Addison told him to do it. He led her to an area near an esape pod. “Until next time!”he said. He shoved her across the room. He then ran into the pod.
Gioto and his team ran to her. “You ok?”he asked. “I’m fine! Continue to sicure the ship! “She ordered. “Where are you going ?”giito asked. “Unfinished business !”she said.
Alison headed for one of the pods. “Stop right there!”Addison said. “I figured you would be showing up!”Alison said. “Like your look. Much better then the old!’Addison said. “It changes nothing addy!”she said. “Aly cat it did not have to be this way!”Addison said.
“I won’t let you get away. Your too dangerous! Unpredictable ! Irational! “She said. She headed for the pod.
Addison tackled her. The two wrestled. Alison struck Addison. Addison fought back. Alison was stuned. Addison turned and saw Ryan. “You could have a little sooner !”she said. They huged.
“Captain’s log,the crew of the ships seized by kahn have been located. This includes the starship commanders including commadore decker. While with a few aceptions most of kahns people esaped but a few have been captured including zoey one of his inner circle. ”
“For now the crises is over. Kahn and his people have lost the ships they seized. The prototype of methuselah has been destroyed. The mini devices have terned over to doctor daystrom. Things hopfuly will be getting back to normal !”
“Sory about the damage mat!”addy said. “Could not be prevented. I am just glad to have my ship back. We are going to be putting in for repairs at star base 11. I hope to have the constilation space bound as soon as posible. “Decker said. “I’m sure you will!”Addison said.
“I am ending the methiselah project at least for now. I never consider that it could be weponized. I never thought to include anti theft protical. I don’t want to deal with it. At least for now!”daystrom said. “Understandible!”Addison said. “So what wil enterprise do now?”Wesley asked. “We are going to transport mis crenic back to elba. Then not sure. Space is the limit i gues!”Addison said. “Yes it seams it is!”decker said.
“All decks stand ready!”yeoman smith said. “Very good! You have the course laid in irina!” Addison asked. “I do indeed!”irina said. “Engage dassale!”she said. “On course!”he said. The ship was off.
“Audry,send the specs for the irina,kyile fire wall to the federation ships we know are stil loyal to the fleet. Then have them head for kaleb sector. We will stage at kaleb four. “Addison said.
“Sending now captain !”lt. Palmer said. “Set course for kaleb four dassale!” Addison ordered. “You got it!” Dasale said. He layed in the course. The ship was off.
“I like this idea! I like your plan.i am inclined to go along with your plan. I would like a favor!”the andorian ilsik said.
“Alright , what is it?” Kahn asked.”i want to govern andoria. I want to be given control of andoria under you of course. “Ilsik said.”i think we can work something out. You would be an excellent vice roy,emparor of andoria!”kahn said. He smiled.
After a prolonged conversation the x inmates signed on to his plan. They pledged loyalty to kahn. Then the meating was ajurned. Every one got up from the desk. They began to disperse.
Alison went over to kahn. “I had time to observe ilsik. Don’t turn your back on him for a second !” Alison said. “I agree. I had that feeling myself. I will do just that!”he informed her. She nodded.
“Several ships are on there way to the randevez point including the Lexington !”lt. Palmer said.
“The Lexington ! Commadore Wesley’s ship! “Addison said. “Is there a problem ?”liz asked. “No i gues i should have expected it. “Addison said.
“It is a good thing is it not? We should have the best against kahn!”yeoman smith said. “Yes your right!” Addison reaplied. Addison tried to contain her aprehension but she did feel that way. Many picked up on it. Some did not.
Alison underwent reconstructive sergery using a methoud developed by a scientist using eugenics. She wanted her apearence restored. She had been very atractive by human standerds. That was before her acident. Now she would have it back.
“Did it work?”Alison asked as she woke up. A nurse got a mirror. She looked at it. She started to cry. It was her. The her she remembered. She was very pleased.
The door opened,jouquin entered. He was taken aback by her new apearence. He could never get pass the plasma scars. He believed in the neq order,there should be no imperfections. He was glad she decided to go though the alterations. “Mis crenic! Kahn wishes you to join him for diner!”he said. “I would love to!” She said. “Excellent i will let him know!”jouquin said.
“Captain’s log,the ships not efected by the device designed to take over any ship,are ariving at the randavez site. I am sheduling a meating of the starship commanders to discus the mission specifics. I have requested a private meating with the commander of the Lexington. The other commanders have the rank of captain but bob Wesley is a commadore and outranks me. I will have to tread lightly but be determined!”
“Hello bob. Cookies they are chocolate chip?”Addison asked. He took one. “This is delicious !”he said. “I baked them myself !”she said.
“I see. You are a bit of a conundrum Addison ! “Wesley said.”moi?”she asked. He laughed. “You were captain of phaser rifle team at the academy. You played on pherise square scraid. You have a bit of a tom boy persona yet you seam to be girlie as well. You ware dress uniform not pants. Your rumored to have a tedy bear colection as well!” Wesley said.
Addison laughed. “I am dynamic !”she said. “So what is the nature of this chat?”Wesley asked. “Well! Bob it was the enterprise that sucesfully stoped kahn’s initial gambit. The enterprise imobolized the clark’s sumit! The enterprise crew came up with the fire wall. The enterprise should head up the task force. I should command the task force!”she said.
“Your trying to butter me up. “Bob said. “Bob the isues are too big for a turf war within the fleet. I should command. “Addison said. “Is this personal. Against kahn! Against Alison ?”Wesley said. “Have you ever known me not to be professional bob?”she asked. “No i have not. “Wesley said. “I know how to beat kahn! I understand how he thinks. I know his weakness. Kahn has to be stopped. We are running out of time!” Addison said.
Commadore Wesley said. “I am not used to playing second fidle.your right. You should command the task force. I will defer to you.”he said.
“Thank you. This is important to me. I have to do this!”she said.”i believe you will suceed!”Wesley said.
She got dresed waring a ball gowan. She was escorted to kahn’s qurters. “You look very beutiful!”kahn said. “Thank you khan!”she said. He invited her to sit.
“So when earth is conquered,where will your capital be?” She asked. “I have not decided. I have given it a lot of thought. I am partial to new dehli or Punjab but sanfrancisco or paris are the most logical !”he said.”you could have operationl capital in paris and sanfrancisco. New dehli could be a cerimonial capital. ” Khan said.
“I like it. I must confes i don’t know about this transporter thing.McPherson asures me its safe. I stil don’t know!”he said. “I asure you,you have nothing to wory about! ” Alison said.
“We are going to create a better world a better universe. “Khan said. “I believe your the man to do it! “She said.
“I believe that the forces of conformity will soon trying to challenge us. I am ready to meat that challenge !”khan said. ” As am i ! “She said.
“I know you are!”he said. “I preceve that captain mccomic and you have a history .”he said.”you are quite perceptive kahn. She was my best friend. She sacrificed me to save her own skin. While i sufered in agony,she became a starship captain. She got maried had kids. All the things i wanted to do. She never wanted a family. Hear she is she has it all and i have nothing ! I have not forgiven her for that. Perhaps i should !”she said.
“The scales will be weighed. For opress us will answer for there deads. Have you read plato’s republic?”he asked . “No but i am familar with its content. I asumed that you want to set up a society run by the elete. “Alison said.
“I was made to rule. First by breading then by traning. I believe that it is my destiny. What do you see as your destiny Alison ?”he asked.
“I don’t think that i have one. Before the acident,i wanted to go on advantures,see the universe,meat interesting people,now i don’t know. Beyond revenge on Addison ,i am not sure i have any goals. “Alison said.
“You have so much potential Alison. If i am to be a prince once again,you should bea princes!” Kahn said. “I have not felt that way in a long time. “Alison said. “It is time for that to change. “Kahn said.
“You believe you can bring down the federation. You believe that you can impose your kind of order on the galaxy ?” She asked. “It won’t be easy. Maintaning it may be harder then conqering I welcome the struggle. I love a challenge !” He said. “You are a remarkable man!”she said. “You are remarkable as well!” He said.she was not so sure.
“All ships are standing by at your command!” Lt. Palmer reported. “Order all ships to leave orbit! “Addison ordered. The com officer sent the order. The ships in the vanguard left orbit of the planet. “All vesel have left orbit ! ” sotril reported.”have you located the ships circumvented by kahn?”Addison asked. “I have. I have sent the coordinates to lt. Palmer and mr. Dassale. “Sotril said. Both palmer and dasale anounced that they had the coordinates. On Addison’s orders,the coordinents were sent to the rest of the fleet. Then dasale set course. The fleet headed for the rougue fleet.
“Excellentcy! A star fleet task force is heading straght for us!”jouquin reported. ” plot an intercept course for them. I look foward to this engagement!”kahn declared. The two fleets headed towards eachorther.
“The rougue fleet is heading right for us.”sotril reported. ” they know that we are coming. “liz said. “Good! We won’t go qietly. We won’t just give up! “Addison said.
The fleet finally neared eachorther. The ships loyal to kahn fired first. Addison gave the clearence to return fire.
Kahn was thriled. Sence he woke up from cyro sleep ,he earned to conquer once again. He needed a perpose again. Now he had it. He hada struggle ,a cause. He could not be hapier.
The enterprise was hit by the uss constilation. The shields held together. The enterprise returned fire on the constilation. Then uss ajax a frigate conductes a dive bomb raid on the enterprise.
The enterprise was unable to return fire on the ajax. It was too munerable. The ship was too good.
“Addison ! Many of the ships are runing on a skeliton crew or unmaned!”kyle reported. “They must be linked to the constilation!” Marvic said. “Methuselah! They must be using methiselah!” Daystrom commented. “Can you find a way to jam the link?” Addison asked. “Working on it!”gioto said.
The battle so far was a stalemate.neither side had gained any ground. Both sides were holding there own.
Those not esential to the battle worked on finding a way to jam the signal. Gioto was a security expert. He was also a weapons expert. He knew security system. Kyile was an expert on engines,transporters and helm. He looked at this from the stand point of an engineering stand point. Dr. Daystrom and marvic looked at it from a technical stand point.
So far the ajak was a formidable advasary. It had made life for the star fleet very uncomfortable. The vessel did not have a crew. It ran totally on autimation.
The crew believed they had found a way to jam the methuselah. They sent it. Suddenly the ships with automated crew stoped being conbative. Ships with a small contigent strugaled to keep going.
“The jaming davice is holding!” Sotril reported. “Mantain fire!”Addison ordered. The enterprise fired on uss exciter. The exciter fired back.
The star fleet had no idea of what ships were automated or manned. The battle was stil in full swing.
“Get the fleet back!”khan incisted. “I am trying ‘”joiquin said. “Try harder dawn you!”khan declared.
The uss pokahuntas had a skelitan crew. The uss lexington was able to take out there shields. The pokahuntas started to retreat.
“The pokahuntas is in retreat!” McPherson said. “How dare they! Target the pokahuntas! Fire!”kahn said. The bridge crew was horified. They followed the order. The ship exploded.
“Kahn meens business !”liz said. “Indeed he does!” Addison said. The enterprise was hit. It was the exciter. The enterprise fired back.
The uss richmond,a ship under the command of a khan aly was nutrilized. The ship lost its shields and weapons. The ship tried to colide with the uss triconderago. The ship was destroyed by uss Belgrade.
Khan’s fleet was faling apart. Some were destroyed. Some ships surendered. “Only three vessels remain active !”McPherson said. “I will not give up! We will withdrawl. Atempt to regroup!” Kahn said.
“They are atempting to withdrawl!”sotril said. “Oh no you don’t. Your not leaving without our ships and crew! This ends now. Persue those ships. “Addison ordered.
End of part six
S.s clarks sumit
“Captain i find myself quite fitigued. May i rest?” Khan asked.”of course. The libery is available. You have a lot of catching up to do. I am available. Should you need me! “Captain merek said. The man thanked him. The captain exited the sick bay.
“I can’t reach command or any base! “The com tech said. “What is the cause?” R.m merek asked. “Some kind of subspace interference. I cannot pinpoint the exact source! ” The tech said.”if we can’t contact the federation,what do we do?”the exo asked.” I don’t know! We do not know these people from adam. 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.
“Captain’s log,under the supervison of chief engineer pitcarinan and doctors daystorm and marvic,final prelerations are underway to test out the new power saurce. All is going well so far. ”
“I have your diner!”smith said. “I’m not hungery!” Addison said. “You have to eat! Doctors orders! “Smith said. “Dr. Piper sent a yeoman to do his dirty work. Alright i will eat. I don’t promise to eat it all or enjoy it!” Addison said. “I can’t control that!”she said. Then she left.
The chime rang.”please don’t tell me he ordered desert! Come!”she said. The door opened,it was Elizabeth danner. “Is this a bad time?”daner asked.”yes but you can come in!” She said. “You seam down. I know you talked to lt. Shaw on sb 12. “Llz said. “Liz i don’t want to do this right now!”Addison said. “Look i know this is difficult !”liz said. “Lizzy this is beyond difficult. My best friend tried to kill me and thretened my family . Except she is not my friend or is she? I want to remember Alison as she was. Had she lived i would have wanted her as my maid of hournor,she would have been there at the birth of sarek and hanah. “Addison said.
“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.
“So are you going to give a satement?” Liz asked.”i have to say something. What i have no idea. I don’t have an opinion on. This. I have six and they all contradict eachorther. “Addison said. “Write that. The rehab commission will understand!”liz said. “Maybe ! I don’t want to think about it right now!” Addison said. “Fine!” Danner said.
The uss enterprise left the planet. “We have cleared orbit!”Ryan anounced. “Ok doctors! Its your show!” Addison said. Dr. Daystorm assumed one of the aft station. He presed a button.
The test ship cleared orbit. The vessel came alongside the enterprise. “Vessel is in position !”dassale reported. “I am in control of the test ship!” Daystrom anounced.
“Ok lets get it down. Set course for the test site Vincent !” Addison ordered. The navigatator set the course for the test site. “course plotted and standing by!” The helmsman reported.
“Doctor daystrom! Have the test ship set course for the test site!’Addison ordered. Dr. Daystrom. The doctor punch in a few buttons. The test ship course was ploted.
“Ready when you are captain!”marvic said. “Lets do it!” The captain said. The two ships went to warp.
End of part three
“Captain’s log, the enterprise has been sumoned to star base 12 in order to asist in a project that could revolutionize power consuption in the federation fleet. ”
Star base 12
Captain mccomic,commander sotril and chief engineer pitcarin sat with several starbase officers from the base including comadore mandez,his aid miss piper and a few civilians.
“Zefren cocren’s warp flight changed every thing for humanity. Soon humanity united. Made contact with alien races. The federation was formed. We began to explore the galaxy. We can’t just sit on our laurels. We must keep going. Keep trying to excel'” comadore mandez said.
“With them in mind,it is my plesure to present dr. Richard daystorm and dr. Lary marvic on what we hope will revolutionize the fleet!” He said.
The african American civiliam scientist went to the lacturn. “Earth has gone though a series of changes. We have warp drive,we have explored the galaxy. One thing has gone relitivly unchanged. Power! Our saurce of power is the same. We only have so much power to go around. The pie stays the same. No one has atempted to change the pie!” Dr. Richard daystorm said.
Lary marvic took the lacturn. “The first law of thermal dynamics is nothing is created or destroyed. The second is that energy depletes over time. The law of entropy. There is no sutch thing as perpetual motion but we have come close!” Marvic said.
“This is a prototype for a new power unit. We call it mathesilah.”Daystorm said. Marvic and several aides whealed in a device on an anti grav cart. The female took the sheat off of the cart.
“This device is designed to recycle energy. It will generate energy not foever but we believe that it could generate power for ten years. “Daystorm said.
“This is of course. It is all experimental. It has not been tested in actual use until now!” Daystorm said.
“Star fleet has aproved the experimental testing of the mathuseluh system. ” commadore mandez said.
Addison listened intently to this presentation. As she listened to it,she thought to herself ,please tell me your not going to put this untested equipment in the enterprise.
“We will be using a test ship designed for testing new equipment !” Marvic said. Addison breathed a sigh of relief.
“Due to the danger associated with an experiment sutch as this,the vessel will be unmaned. The test ship will be monitored by another ship that will monitor it from a distence. The ship will have a fail safe that will take over the ship if needed. “marvic said.
“That is where the enterprise comes in! The enterprise will monitor the ship from a safe but close distence. We will be testing it in a remote area. We can’t totally garante safty of those involved but we do our best!” The commadore said.
Addison had her reservation about this mission. It seamed like potentialy a colosial waste of time if it failed. Although they took every proqaution,nothing was error or danger proof.
She tried to gage the reaction of her chief engineer. The usually calm pitcarin seamed uncharistically gitty. He seamed excited by it. She could not figure out asistent chief engineer kyile. He did not seam gitty but did not get the impreson he oposed it.
She looked over to her most stoic advisor. Security chief gioto was the type who could find a cloud in every silver lining. He had a look on his face like this was the biggest bunch of targ manure he had ever seen. She was not sure how she felt about all this. This was not her area of expertise. She relied on others. She was stil sceptical.
“We will lunch in nine hours! “The commidore said. The brefing was ajurned. Every one got up. Addison and sotril went over to daystorm and marvic. “We will arange qurters for you!” Addison said. “Thank you captain. You must be very excited. You get to be a part of history in the making !”daystorm said. “Arnt i part of history every second of the day?” Addison asked. Marvic laughed.
Addison and sotril left the room.”Get every thing into place. I will be back abored shortly! I have something i need to do!” Addison said. “Of course. I will get every thing started!”sotril said. “Thank you commander!” Addison said.
Star base 12
She went to the bar. She looked around and saw lt arial shaw. “Arial! “Addison said. “Hello addy! Please sit!” She said. “I was suprised to see you hear. You spend most of your time on sb 11!” She said. ” I go back and forth. I came hear to see you!” She said. “Oh?” Addison said.
“Its about Alison crenic. We would like you to give a satement. “Shaw said. “What will happen to her?” She asked. “Frankly we don’t have a clue. She will be under pysch hold for the time being. She could face multiple charges. There are multiple isues. If convicted she could spend alot of time in a rehab colony. Is that best? Can she be rehibilitated. There is the question of how she got where she was!”shaw said.
“I don’t know what to say? I don’t have any recomendations. A part of me wants to lock her up and throw away the key. She was my friend. I am not sure that’s her. I don’t want to remember Alison that way especially if this is not her!”she said.
“The best medical minds in the federation dont have a clue. You should stil be heard even if you don’t know. Say that! ” shaw said. “I will write something! Who has jurisdiction?” She said.
“Star fleet want it sense she did damage to star fleet. Federation justice department claims jurisdiction as does others. It will probably go before the supreme court! This is new ground!” Shaw said.
“I see! I get that satement to you as quickly as posible!” Addison said. “Thank you addy!” Shaw said.
“Is there no clue as to how she got acros the space or worked with the romulons?”Addison asked. “Not yet no. She is not forthcoming unfortunately!” Shaw said. “I see!” Addison said.
Addison decided to confur with two officers she knew would be on either side of this issue. Chief pitcarin and lt comander gioto.
“Ok! Why is this a good idea commander?”Addison said. “The science behind it is sound. The idea has merit. I think it can work! If it does it will alow us to expand our exploration of the galaxy with less layovers and at the same time give a leg up with the Klingons,romulons and tholiens. This could be a huge win!”pitcarin exclaimed.
“Commander giito i assume you have a different view?” Addison asked. “I do Addison. This is pure targ minure. You can’t garane something goes wrong. If even conponent craps out,the whole thing will go bust! If it goes wrong in a remote area its over. You will have to have a conventional back up!” The sicurity chief said.
“We can provide multiple reduntcies. We can almost gurente gioto’s syinerio won’t play out!” The chief engineer said. “You can’t totally asure that these reduntcies won’t fail! The titanic was taken down by a smal rudder! It is too big of a risk! I can’t believe your letting your exuberance cloud your reason and objectivity!” Pitcarin said.
“His doom and gloom syinerio is posible but not probible. As i recal the transporter was highly critisized. There are still detractors. This can work!” Pircarin said.
“Well i gues we will find out!” Addison said. She dismished the two. The two left the room. The door closed.
“It is good to be back hear! I helped build this ship. I designed the constitution class starship amoung orthers. The constitution class is definitely my favorite !”marvic said. “We all love it. When i completed my traning i figured i would be asigned to a frigate or a ground instilation. I was thriled to be asigned to the enterprise!” Yeoman smith said.
“Even stil in its infantcy it had already made history. I was thriled when the enterprise was asigned to monitor the experiment. This is going to be both myine and doctor daystorm’s crowning achevement!” Marvic said. “You don’t doubt that will work? “Smith asked. “Not for a second! History is going to be made. I am very confident that this will work!”marvic said. Smith was not convinced that he really felt that way. She knew that he would not show fear. He would show strength until the very end.
S.s clarks sumit
The commanding officer was beamed from the sleeper ship to the clarks sumit. The captain decided to have only the group’s leader brought abored at for now.he would decide on the orthers once the leader was awake.
The doctor revived the commander. The patcient began to wake up. He was grogy at first. Then he became more and more luscent.
“Where am i?” The indien looking man said. ” your on a human vessel. We are a civilian vessel but we are part of the federation. “The captain said.
“Federation?” The man asked.”united federation of planets. A multi species alience that includes humanity. The capital is on earth!” The captain said. “Earth stil excist. I feared humanity might have destroyed itself !” The man said.
“We came close a few times. We chose to servive. We did more then then that. We thrived.” The captain said.
“I did not catch your name captain!” The patcient said.” My apologies. I am captain r.m merek. You are abored the starship clarks sumit. We estimate that it has been about three hundred years!” Merek said.
“My name is khan! “He said. “Khan! What was the perpose of your space flight?”merek asked.”we were hoping to settle a new world. Start fresh. I believed that humana on earth were doomed. We decided that if humanity was incisting on there going to the galows,we should step aside and let them. We are a group with common goals. We were a united group. We believe we could create a better society. ” Khan said.
“I think that we have created a world you will be proud of. We did almost destroy ourselves. At the last minute,we pulled back. We made the hard decisions.it paid off. “The captain said.
The man seamed sceptical. The captain could detect that scepticism in his vioce. The captain did not why. He senced he was mising something . He was not sure what it was. She suspected that it was a key clue to the mystery.
End of part two.
Alison was sent to the psiciatric facility on elba two. It was unclear if she was Alison. She may have just been reanimated. Her old friend Addison perfered to think that Alison was dead. No one knew the truth. It could not be known.
Alison was remended to the facility on elba. She was under the authority of the mental health commision. She could stil be tried for several charges. The justice department was monitoring the case.
She was involved in therapy seasons with a single pycologest and in groups. The federation was not really sure what to do with her.
“They are all afraid of me. I have heard some refer to me as the zombie !” She said. “That is unkind. “The doctor said. “Is it not acurate?” She asked. “Look you are a person regardless!” Dr. Eldin said.
“I don’t feel like one most days doctor !”she said. “I know this is all difficult !”he said. “A part of me wishes i had died on that ship or in the battle!” She said. “You don’t really meen that!” Dr. Eldin said. “I don’t know. I just don’t know !” She said.
She was returned to her cell. The minute she entered,the force field came back on. Nothing made sense. She did not know if it would.
” captain’s log we are curently following up on reports of a derilect ship that may be from earth’s past. We have just had a sighting of the vessel in nutral space and are looking into it!” The captain said.
“I can’t help but think we are on a wild goose chase !” Helm officer said. “I really don’t see how. Everything seams to indicate that this is the real deal!” The science officer said.
“Lets just see what’s turns up!” The captain admonished his bridge crew. They all agreed.
The vessel went in further. The science officer had enhanced the sensors.
The ship went further into the reigion. They came upon the ship. “I have located the derilect. Sending coordinates to the helm!” The science officer reported. “I have it! “The helm reported. “Set a course for that ship! “The captain ordered.
The ship arived at the site of the derilect. “Vessel apears to be adrift'”the science officer said. ” have you identified it?” The captain asked.
“Vessel is a dy 100. It is from earth'” the science officer said. “Dy 100 that was before warp drive was discovered by zefrem cocren. Are we sure on that?” The captain asked.
“Positive id “the science oficer said. “It is odd that such a vessel would be this far out! ” first officer said. “Agreed. Life signs!” The captain asked.
“I am detecting life signs but they are faint. Many pre warp vesels used cyonic sleep. This could be a sleaper ship. “The science officer said.
“Suspended animation. That does not sound like fun'” the helm said. “Get in a good nap though!” The navigator said.
The vessel neared the old vessel. The vesel went near the old ship. “The vessel is listed as the botony bay. Historical data banks note its excistence but little else!”the science officer said.
“Information of those days were fragmented. Much of the archives were destroyed In the third world war. ” The first officer said.
“We are in transporter range'” a crewman said. “Very well. Stand by to beam over landing parties. Send to command our findings. ” The captain said.
The team emurged on the ship. The ship was one big coridor. There were catpartments with people.
“Most of them are alive! Remarcible to have servived all these years !” A field science officer said. “Imagine waking up after all these years. Warp drive,contact with alien worlds,united earth,the federation,Montreal stil not having a decent sports team! “The captain said.
“I believe this one may be the leader! Usually the commander was to be the first to be revived. He could decide rather it was safe for the rest of the crew to be revived!” The doctor said.
“I wish we had more information. We going in blind. For all we know we could be waking up colnel green !” The captain said. “Colnel green died ,did he not?” A younger crewman said.
“Do we revive? Its your call” the doctor said. “Weird as the c.o of a civiian ship,i did not think i would have to make a call like this. One that could have impact on the entire human race maybe even the federation and beyond. Well it is just the captain. Procede! “The captain ordered.
The doctor took out a hypo spray. Two engineering crewman opened the shelf. The self had a retractable iner shelf. The ocupent looked as though he was from india.
The captain gave the go ahead to the doctor. The doctor attached the medical instrament to his neck. He aplied the hypo spray to the patcient.
The man started to wake up. The man started to become more alert. The man began to become aware of who and where he was.
A legend had just returned. Now nothing would be the same. Humanity was about to be turned upside down.
