Detox part six

Detox chamber
Addison began to wake up. Once she woke up,she immediately started shouting pro Hendriini rhetoric.
“It happened almost instantly. She woke up and tried to take over the ships. She was trapped behind the force field!”the male nurse told McCoy.
“Has it yielded any meaningful information?”Piper said. “It has. I have a few theories on how to stop this thing.”mccoy said.”I hope so. “Piper said.
Dr. McCoy went over to sotril.”commander I was hooping you would look over it. “The doctor said to sotril. “I have nothing else pressing. I will look it over.”she told him.
“Very good!”McCoy said. “Nothing will work commanders .any attempt to thawt us will fail!”Addison said. She was sedated.
She looked it over. “Fascinating! I believe it does have merit. I wish I could do it but given my condition I cannot.I believe you are on the right tract as the expression goes. “She said .
Enterprise
Confrence room.
“Mind meld?”Farris asked. “Yes sir a Vulcan male would try to scan the microbe and find a way to attack it. I believe we can force it out or destroy it!” Dr. McCoy said.
“Mind melds  are extremely taxing . there are a lot of patients ?”Commodore Wesley asked. “It is an iasue. First we need to ascertain if it can work. “Dr. Piper said.
“You can assure me that there will be no alteration with memories?”Farris asked.”yes absolutely sir!”McCoy said . “I had to check. “The bureaucrat told the doctor. “Of course sir. ” the doctor replied.
“There is a Vulcan aboard the Lexington. I can arrange for him to come abored. “Wesley said. “That would be much appreciated sir!”McCoy said. “I will make the arrangements. “Wesley said. “I want good notes taken. I will wish to look them over!”Farris told them.”agreed!”Dr. McCoy said.
Detox
A transporter beam emerged in the corridor of the cylinder. The Vulcan man walked over to the doctors.”Dr. McCoy?”the male asked. “Yes I am McCoy! “The man said.
“I am lt. Commander ston. “He said. “Have you been versed on what we need to do?”Dr. McCoy asked. “Yes I have. I am ready when you are. “He said.
The Vulcan officer followed the team to the force field.a secondary field was set up before the orther field was disapated. The man entered.
“Vulcans? You think you can stop us,?”the captain under the influence of the microbe said.he said nothing in response. He took out his hand. She tried to move away. He gained the super hand.
“My mind to your mind! My thoughts to your thoughts ! “The Vulcan said. The Vulcan found himself in another place. He saw memories.he presumed that it was from the commander.
He found a kind of doorway. He went though it. He found a white room. He saw a human. It looked like admiral komack. He believed it might be the microbe.
“You do not belong hear!”ston said.”we are the future. We are beginning to expand.”the “admiral”said. The Vulcan took his hand to the image. The admiral tried to fight back. The Vulcan did not relent. The admiral refused to give up but neither did the officer.
Ston gained the uper hand. He began a mind meld. “I am detecting some movement within the microbes. Whatever he is doing he is on the right track. “Piper said. “Vulcans ! They are efficient but can be dawn annoying at Times.”Dr. McCoy said. Dr. Piper did not say anything. He did chuckle a bit.
The Vulcan continued to attack the microbe. The microbe attacked him. He did not stop. He struck the image with his mind.
“I believe I have found the pulse. “The  nurse said. “Can you generate it?”piper asked. “Yes I can!”the nurse said in response.
The Vulcan held his ground. He telepathically sent the pulse to the creature. The admiral started to shrink. The image exploded.
“The microbe is gone! “The nurse said. “Are you sure there are no traces of the microbe?” piper asked. “The microbe is gone! I can confirm that. ” the nurse said.
Ston ended the link. He woke up. Then Addison woke up. “Addison ! How are you feeling ?”piper said.”better Mark. More like myself.”she told him. “The microbe is gone!”McCoy told her. “Can you beat this thing with all the crew?”Addison said. “Yes we can .”McCoy told her. “Get on it !” Addison ordered. “Yes sir!”they said.
“We can generate the pulse !”a tech said.”Lets get on it! Addison we may be on the verge of resolving the crises!” Mark told her. She smiled.
The medical staf on the container got right to work. They worked to generate the pulse would incompacitate the microbe.

“Ryan ! Adison has been cleansed of the mucrobe!”lt. Kyile in command said. “Permison to go to the detox chamber?’ryan asked.”permission granted. Go!”Kyle said. “Thank you sir!” he said.
Detox
He emerged on the detox cylinder. He went to see Addison. He was going to hug her. She backed away.”I know we are married. I have the knowledge but not the memories. I don’t remember the emotions I felt. “Adison said.
She seemed different. She was colder. “I see! I am glad your ok! You gave me quite a scare. “He told her. “I am glad to have it gone. “She told him.
There relationship was different. She was not his Addison.She was not the Addison he remembered.it worried him. Would he ever really get her back?
“I should probably get back to the enterprise.”he said. “Of course. “She said. “I love you!”ryan said.”yea “was all she said in response. The door closed.

“The female crew is mostly cured of the microbes.”Leslie said.”very good. Soon we can get out of hear and hopefully get back to normal !”Wesley said. “Is there such a  thing as normal when it comes to deep space exploration?”gioto asked. The Commodore laughed. “True!” he said.
“Comadore we have incoming! Detecting three vessels.they are romulin vessels . bird of preys. “Tim said.
“Warn them off  Mr.Leslie !”Wesley ordered “sending!”the acting com officer informed him. “They are not responding!” leslie said.”big surprise!” the Commodore said.

“They are sitting ducks !” dassale said.”I know. ” the Commodore said the romulan vessel got near the federation ship.the starship fired preemptively at the warship.the battle had begun.
To be concluded.
Notes
I enjoy having Bob Wesley interact with security chief gioto. In the original series they were both played by bary Russo.
Ston was the Vulcan tpring. Perfered over Spock in “a mock time” he was played by Lawrence lemontahne. Apearently in this time line he joined star fleet.
I considered having Spock or symbol be the one to administer the meld. I am not ready for that. I do want to bring Spock into the “universe” storyline. At some point maybe sybok.

“Detox” part three.

“Personal log,Addison Jean McCormick.the female crew have all been moved to decon chamber pods. A special medical team assembled by the surgeon General is in place and is beginning the investigation. ”
“Both myself and commander sotril and show no signs of the infestation.we do still Cary the microbes.the other female crew show signs of the infestations.” ensign Davis hurled ephiphets at the crew.

Lt .ryian Hendricks left the bridge.he headed for the confrence room. He activated the view screen.
He had a complicated relationship with his in-laws. He liked them.they were good people.they loved Addison and there grandkids.sense Addison was adopeted,they were very protective of her.
Flashback
The day Addison introduced Ryan to her parents and siblings. They were friendly and crodjial.they liked each other.
Ryian got a chance to talk to her step farther in private. “Look your a nice guy Ryan. You would be a fine husband and I think you would be a good farther. I was hoping addy would marry a doctor or lawyer or a political person or orther profession. I was hoping she would be a doctor or lawyer or professional. I am stil hoping that she will stil decide to do that. Perhaps she will get this space thing out of her syistom. “Edward said.
“With all due respect,this space thing is who she is. ” Ryan said. “I understand your view but I disagre with it. “Edward said.
Ryan knew he was about to get reemed out. He took a deep breath and turned on the monitor. The view screen came to life .on the screen was the image of Edward mccomic.
” hello ed ! “Ryan said.”Ryan I understand that Addison was I infected with some kind of microbe ?”he asked.
“Yes sir that is correct. She does not show any syimotom but is infected. She faces the same danger that the others do.”he told him.
“You say this microbe infects female?”Edward asked. “Yes that is correct. The microbe does not affect anyone before puberty. Hanah and Miranda are not affected. “Ryan said.
“Look Ryan the choice of carers for you and Addison is your own. I may disagre with it but it is your decision. I don’t begrudge that. What of sarek and Hannah and Miranda. It is unfair for them. Mayby it is time to settle down or let them live with us ! We could provide a stable environment on earth. “Edward said.
“Look Miranda is being raised by Liz. As for sarek and Hannah I am not having this conversation right now. I understand your concern !”he said.
“Deep space is no place to raise a family Ryan. You will have to make a choice family or the stars! “Edward said. “Let me get though thud crises then we can debate this. “Ryan said .”make sure Addison come back in one peace. She May outrank you but is your duty to protect her. Even at the expense of your own life!”he said.”I know my obligation ed. “He said “I hope you do!”he said.
After the conversation ended he returned to the bridge. The security commander went over to him.”you ok?”giito asked.”it went about as well as I expected. “Ryan said.”I see!”the commander said.
“Permision to resume my duties!”Ryan asked. “Procede!”he said . he retook the navigators post.
  Decon tube.
“Every test we have run indicates that the microbe is naturally occurring. It is generated by an hendrinie. I find no evidence of genetic engineering. “Dr.McCoy said.
“Is it a life form or is it similar to sweet?”piper asked. “I can’t be sure but I am thinking it is closer to the latter!”McCoy said.in response . “it can servive even far away form the mother life form!”piper said. “It would appear so. ” McCoy said.
“Is it a parasite?” Dr. Mcbanga asked. “I find no evidence that it depends on the host to servive. It does not appear to be draining  the life energy of the host. It does render it subverient to the hendriani.” McCoy said
“It Seams off that it would be a naturally accruing phynomina. “Piper said. “”Could it be the hendribi body ajustng to the crises. Mayby the process was altered after the plague. A kind of natural contingency plan?”Mcbangga asked. “That would be the most reasonable hypothesis. “McCoy said.
“Is there any way to remove them?”piper asked. “We tried hyonilin. It has not yielded any result. We tried several agents known to cure chemical weapons or other agents with no results. The entire federation medical establishment is working on this. “McCoy said.
Decon unit
Adison paced around the room. “You do not like confine spaces do you?”the Vulcan asked. “No I don’t. My Elba stay did not help but my clostrophobia goes back a long ways. “Addison said. “I can believe that !”she said.
“Are we going to make it though this one?”Addison asked. “I believe we will. Logic. I have no evidence for my view.I believe it to be sound. “Sotril told her. “You have come a long way!”Addison told her.
Flashback

She dropped out and ended up trying to go a bored a freighter. Due to her hospitalization ,her acceptance had to be reexamoned.
“You were previously accepted to the academy but things have changed.  Your erratic behavior and the hospitization that came after it. How do you explain it?”admiral benet asked.
“Sir! With all due respect I believe that there are factors to consider. I do not see my behavior as erotic. I had have an interest In deep space. I went to the university of alpha cinterie on there urging. I did not like it. It was never wanted I really wanted. ” adison explained.
A Vulcan female cadet began to speak. “Star fleet requires a great degre of commitment. I am bot certain thee have that commitment. “Sotril said.
“I believe I have demonstrated a commitment to space exploration.”adison said.
“There are concerns not just cited by your family but also by the staf if the Elba two facility!”captain komack said. “I disagre with that asestment “Addison said.
“I am not sure you have the temperament to be a star fleet officer!”sotril said. “You have definitely come a long way!”adison said.

Notes
Unlike tantilous ,Elba three apeared to  a mental asylum facility not a prison . it was unclear. For the purpose of the universe series ,Elba two will be a mental hospital planet.
It has been Assumed that Dr. McCoy was divorced. It was never mentioned In the series. It was adresed in the 2009 star trek movie set in an alternate universe created by Nero destruction of the Kelvin.
Admiral Richard bennet was the admiral who presided over a review of kirk’s tempering with the kobioshi muru test in star trek 09.he was played by Tyler Perry.
The rank of field prmius is  equivalent of a Commodore. It has never been mentioned in the series. It was depicted In “the final frontier” written by Diane Cary. This is one of my favorite star trek novels.
Commander charvineck is the female commander in “the enterprise incident” during the third season. Her name was never given on air. I believe the charvinack originates with ” the Vulcan heart “by josepha Swartz and Susan Sherman.it May predate that. Vulcan heart is another favorite novel.
