Preservers and the preserved part three 

The captain went back into the command center. He tried not to show signs of fatigue. He tried to communicate strength. Even though he was not feeling particularly strong right now. He went into the command center. “What do you got?” The captain asked. ” We have discovered a log within the teleportation system. We have been able to discover where the rinsed have gone. “The security chief said. 

“Why do I think that I am not going to like this? ” The captain said. “Your not . We have traced the teleportation to a large vessel. I believe it was designed as a cargo vessel. The problem is that the ship is near the planet trebious.” The Orion chief said. “Oh no! “Noris said. “What’s trebious?”yeoman Smith asked. ,”It is a planet in the nazaka imperium.” Kalera said. “Did the nazaka abduct these people?” Terasha said.” I am not sure they did. This hardly seams there style. ” Kalera said. 

“I suspect someone is using nazaka space. Trebious in in there outor fronter. It is possible that the nazaka does not know they are hear. ” Norris said. “Who? Why would someone want to abduct a sub species ? It makes no sense.”terasha said.

“Your thinking like a Klingon Terry. This sounds like the preservers.”Norris said.”I thought we filled out the preservers?”Dr. Dahner said. “I do t think this is the work of the preservers. What is this was the work of devotees?”Norris suggested. 

“Your thinking the one true path? ” Ryan asked. “It’s sound like them.”Norris asked.”why abduct people?”Dr. Piper asked.”think of it mark. You revere aliens who subducted minorites group facing danger of extinction or near extinction at least culteraly. They rescured these people. What if the o.t.p wanted to replace the preservers. What if they wanted to become the preservers. Imitation is the best form of art. What if they believe they can become preservers.” Norris suggested.

“These people are not endangered.they are well treated.they are happy .”Elizabeth said. “These people don’t care about such thing. They are not totally rational. They believe in ushering new order by destroying the old order. Anvar prime is a symbol of that old order. If successfully they will do this more often. It will cause dear chaos. With the gateway technology they could be unstoppable. ” Norris said. 

Anvar city.

“You believe that a preserver cult is involved?” The president asked.”yes mr. President. This fully matches there style.”Norris said. “They want to preserve them?”the minister of security asked. “Not quite. They are not nearly as benevolent as those they want to emulate. The one true path is a cult in every definition of the word.they see things the way they want to see it.they want to spread chaos. They believe that the new order will rise from the ashes of the old. A kind of post apocalyptic rissing. ” Norris said. 

“What now ?” The minister of security asked.” We are going to try to retrieve the rinsed. ” Norris said.”in nazaka space?” The prime Minister asked. “We are working on that. ” Norris asked.

Command center 

“Your not serious? You want to teleport the enterprise? Into enemy space?”the Orion chief said.” It would take too long to travel to nazaka space by conventional warp drive. Besides the nazaka don’t like us or any other species that are not them. ” Norris said. “Look captain.with alldue respect I barely understand this technology. Not only do you want me to use it you want any me to transport a starship. My ship. My pride and joy. We have no idea if this is even possible. ” The chief said. 

“We have to do this. We cannot let what could be a huge travisty if it succeeds. Whatever happened it could alter the entire develooment of this culture. We have to act! ” Norris said. ” I need to study this. This is a colossally bad idea. ” Hallak said. ” You have a better on?”Norris asked. “Well no. I know you want to help these people. I know you will be some kind of cosmic super hero. Your a starship captian. Your mortal. You have limitations. So does your ship. This is unknown technology. Your rushing in where angels fear to tread. I implore you to slow down. ” The chief said.

“I would point out that if we are caught by the nazaka,we would be fired on. This would be interpreted as an act of war.”the security chief remarked. “I know that. I have to do this. The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few or the one. ” Norris said. ” I can’t talk you out of this can I?” ” Hallak asked. “No I can’t. ” The captian said. 

“I object to this in the strongest terms.”the chief said. ” Your objection is noted. It will be in the log. ” The captian said. ” Understood!” The chief said. “Get things in motion. “Norris said. 

Nazaka space

There was a massive colony ship.the ship was designed to transport colonies. The vessel was protected by several combat ships. The ships were all procured from other races. The ships were retired. The ships were retrofitted with advanced weapons. 

Command ship

Bridge

“Excellentcy! Norris has discovered the gateway. ” His chief henchman breket said. “Very good! “Quter said. “You said he would come. “Durona said. “I knew he would come. He is a smart man well to a point. ” Quter said.”will he really risk coming into hostile space?” Breket asked. “, He will come. His since of duty. His sender of honor will force him to act. Even if is a bad idea and it is. We must prepare. I have so looked froward to this. This is the begining. “Quter said. 

Colony ship. 

“Why are we hear?” A young girl asked. “I don’t know my child.”a vilege elder said. ” I have not seen anyone. ” Qudok said.”someone has to be running this ship. ” A women said. ” This does not appear to be anvar.” Qudok said. ” “No it does not.” The elder said. “Who would want to abduct us?” The female said. “I don’t know. ” The elder said. 

U.ss.s enterprise 

Conference room. 

 “Your sure that they are near trebious?”admiral komack asked. “Yes sir I am. “Norris said. ” This is a bad idea Ben. This could start a war with the nazaka. Something we want to avoid. The galaxy is still liking it’s sounds form the mass crises. ” The admiral said.”I know that sir. If the rinsed are moved it could have a lot of repecaucutions for the rinsed and the anvar.we don’t know how they will respond to enviormentle differentces. If this succeeds they may try again and again. This could have a huge impact on the galaxy. We have to nip this in the bud now. ! ” The captian said. ” Tread lightly captian. We don’t want an incident. ” The admiral said.”I will sir. ” The captian said. 

Bridge 

“Captian on the bridge !”Smith said. “What did the admiral day?”Mia bolt asked.”he did not tell me not to. He did not give a ringing endorsement. I think he knows something has to be done. ” Norris said.”I fear the damage may have already been done. If they are returned to anvar,it could have already altered there development as a culture. The impact may not be fully known for a generation or two”Liz said. “We have to do something. They are not safe as long as they are in o.t.p custody.after they are free,they can figure the implications of the incident.”Norris said. 

” This is going to happen then?” Dr. Piper asked.”yes it is mark.”the captian said. The crew got ready to leave. The crew was tense. They trusted the captain. They all knew that something was up with him. Norris has acted strangely for a few weeks. They did not know what to do. They did not know how to deal with it. Hopefully it would not become worse. 

Bridge 

“We are ready. The command center is manned by anvar techs. They are ready.” The chief engineer said. “Very good. “Noris said. “They are ready to activate the gateway on your order sir!”the Klingon com tech reported. “Order all decks to standby.”noris said. ” All decks standing bysir!”the female Klingon said. “Take us out of orbit Mia!”the captian ordered. Kirk and bolt took the ship out of orbit.”we are clear sir!”Kirk reported. “Kolona give them the clear message to proceed.” The captian ordered. 

The com officer sent the message. The techs in the command center activated the button. The gateway opened. The enterprise was teleported.the enterprise was taken somewhere else. Within nazaka space the enterprise appeared. 

Quterss vessel

“Sir! I am detecting an energy signal. It is the enterprise!” Durona said. “Very good. I knew he would come. He could not resist! He would come after me. Intercept. “Quter ordered. 

Enterprise 

“Captian we are in nazaka space. We are near trebious.”spock asked. ” It worked and we are in one peace.”hallak said. “You doubted this?,”Mia asked. “Well yes.” The Orion said.” I have located a colony ship and several escorts.the escorts match vessels known to be used by the o.t.p. “the security chief reported. ” intercept !” The captian ordered. Mia plotted an intercept course. The enterprise headed to the ships.

Quter ship

Bridge

“They have plotted an intercept of there own.”durona said. “Very good! I can’t wait to renew our aqaintences captian!”quter said. The enterprise and the other ships neared each other. As soon as the enterprise was in fireing range the enterprise fired.

End of part three. 

 

Preserves and the preserved

Enterprise 

 Qurters of Ryan and Addison. 

” Where are you going?”Addison asked. “Captain. Allied all senior officers to the bridge. Sense you are indeposed I figured I could help out. I still hold the rank of Lt. Commander. ” Ryan said. ” I can go to the bridge!”she said. She started to feal quesey. “Never mind!” Addison said! She went to the bathroom. 

 His uniform did not quite fit like he did. He went into the turbo lift. “Good morning Ryan!”the captain said. “Good morning to you as well sir. “Ryan said. “Look I don’t know you well but can I ask you a favor. It pertains to your other day job?”Ryan asked. “Sure?” He asked. “I hate to ask. My sister amber is on her way to pick up her brace in Elba two. My other sister is going to be moved to a facility on earth to be closer to her daughter. I am afraid that quter may harm them. I have no evidence. I am not sure quter is sitl alive. It just a feeling.”Norris said. 

“I can’t promise anything. The federation resources are spread a bit thin these days. I have a few favors I can try to call in. I will do what I can. ” Ryan said. “Thank you!” He said. “Addison would want me to!”he said. “How is she?”the captain said. “She is holding her own.”he said. The door opened.

They entered the bridge. “Captain on the bridge. “Yeoman Smith said. “Report!” Norris ordered. “Now entering anvar sector. ” Gary Mitchel reported.”Mr. Kirk slow us to impulse! ” The captain ordered. “Aye sir.”Kirk answered. 

“Now entering orbit sir!” Mitchell reported. ,”Assume standard orbit helm!”the captain ordered. The helm and nevigator took the ship into orbit.”now at standered orbit!” Kirk abounded. ” Captain the planets president has asked us to beam to the tribal area. “Kolona said.”inform Him that we are on our way! “The captain ordered. ,”Aye sir!”she said. 

“Aaron I want your wife on the landing team. Dissaperences are not quite her expertise but her insights could come in handy!” The captain said. “I am sure she would be happy to. ” Commander Jessop said. ” Ryan with me. Kirk you have the con. Gioto you two. ” Norris ordered. “You got it captain !”the captain said. “Captain permission to accompany you?”Spock asked. “Granted ! Let’s do this! ” Krik said. They excited the bridge. 

 Transporter room. 

 ” Are we in any danger going down there?”Dr. Piper asked. “There is a risk but I find no evidence of any danger. It is a possibility!”Spock said. “I am not too woried!” Nurse chepel said! “You should be!” Dr. Killer said. ” OK let’s get moving!” The captian said. Norris,Ryan,danger,giotto,terasha and kalera got on to the pad. “Ready when you are!”Lt. Kylie said. ” Energize!”he said. 

The chief activated the pad. The team was transfered from the enterprise to the planet. The team emurged on the planet. The area was known as the Andraval.the area was under the control of a sub species called the rinsed.the rinsed were primitive. They lived simply.

 “I am captian Ben Norris ,commanding officer of the u.s.s enterprise !” Norris said. “I am president Andro Wuhan. This is prime minister fereel and security minister solenoid.  “The president said. “I wish we did not have to meet under these circumstances! ” Norris said. “I agree. ” The president said.

“What happened at least what you know?”Dr. Piper asked. ” We keep in touch with the rinsed. I contacted them to make arrangements for My visit to the tribal council. They never answered. I got woried!”the president said.”we sent in a shartle. We found there village intact. They were gone.!”the security minister said. “We used planet wide sansors form the orbital base. They are gone. “The prime Minister said. ” You found no susbstence or any thing that could be the result of a virus ?” Dr. Piper asked. ” Nothing! We checked for evidence of spontaneous desiccation. We found nothing. “Solenoid reported. ” Did you scan for transporter?” Terasha asked. “Yes we found no evidence of transporter activity. ” Solenoid said. 

“Any readings out of the oridnary?” The security chief asked. “Negitive we have checked for every thing we can think off. ,”The security minister said.” There are stories of mass abductions in the rihansu empire. Some mythical.” Kalera said.”there are some In the Klingon empire as well.”terasha said.”there are benevolent and malevolent!”kalera said. “There are stories of mass abductions some credible. There is the preservers. “Spock said.

“I know about the preservers. The rinsed are not in danger. There population has rissen in the last few generations. We are working to gurente there well being. Assuming the preservers excited and they are still around I can’t believe they would resettle the rinsed. It is not necessary!”the president said. 

Spock took out his tricorder. He scanned for several things. He went to a rock face. The Vulcan followed the readings. He walked up the hill. Norris never quite knew how to take Spock. He was very enigmatic. Norris and Ryan followed him from a distance. Spock was one of he few officer he did not feel comedies to. He was too different too alien. 

Spock took out his communicator. “Spock to enterprise!”he said.”go ahead!” Kolona said.”stand by!” He said!A door opened. “How did you know?”Ryan said.”it was a supposition commander.”Spock said. They stepped inside. The team went inside the command center. ” This has been in hear all this time and we did not know it. ” The security minister said. “Is this connected to the abductions?” The prime Minister asked. ” I do not know yet. ” Spock said. 

“Could this be a preserver base?”Norris asked. “The preservers were known to use oubulisk. The idea of a hidden command post is possible. ” Spock. Said. “This could all be a wild goose chase? ” The prime Minister said. “It could but we have nothing currently. This could be a clue. We have to follow up on it.” Commander herington said. 

” I want commander halak to beam over a team to analyze it. I want to access this computer.” The csptian told his EXO. ” Of course ! I will contact the chief right away. ” He said.

 The chief engineer got to work right away. He and a skilled team worked on the computer system. The chief did not look investigation.he was an engineer not a crime scene investigator. He preferred to leave that to the security chief. The csptian was on his back constantly. He asked for an update every five minutes. He could tell that the captain was getting antsy.the captain had been out of sorts even before the enterprise went to anvar prime.now he was really off the deep end.  Murcifully commander Harrington was running interference for the chief. 

Now he had something. ” You wanted to see me chief?”the captain asked. “Yes I did.(this time!) ” He said. ” What do you got?” The captain asked.”well Emory Ericsson will be sad to know he did not invent the transporters.i found evidence of a transportation device. Unlike the transporter it has nothing to do with molecular transference. It is a seamless transportation. A kind of teleportation. ” The chief said. 

“Has it been used recently?” Commander giotto asked. “Yes it has.” Engineer O’Neal said. “The teleportation was used around the time of the vanishing.” The Orion chief commented. “This proves that these people were taken.” Gioto said. ” Captain I don’t think that this is a preserver base. ” Terisha said. ” If not the preservers then who?” Norris asked.” I believe it belongs to the inconians.” She said. 

“Who are the iconians?” Elizabeth asked. ” The iconians were a race believe to have explored the galaxy by just appearing out of thin air. They were believed to be mythical but there is some evidence that they do exist. “Spock said.”there are debates about there nature. Some myith say they were conqueror . Some called them demons of air and darkness. Other myith have them as heroes. “Kalera said.  

“This station was not used prior to this. The energy consumption log proves that.” The Orion said. “We are sure this station was behind the dissaperence?” The captian asked. “Not a hundred percent but close. “The Orion said. “Can you determine where they went?” Ryan asked. ” I am working on that. ” The chief said. 

Office of the president 

Anvar city.

” We have determined that the secret facility was behind the dissaperence. The station has a teliportation device. It is a highly advanced transporter.” The captian said. ” We are working to find out where the tribe went.” The first officer said. ” The rinsed people were happy. They were not oppressed. They were thriving. Do you believe that the preservers are still around and fried them?”the president asked. ” There is not evidence that the preservers are still around or that they were behind this. The technology is iconians not preserver. We are not sure why they were abducted. ” The captian said. “You belvedere that this was an abduction?” The security Minister asked.”we are running on that theory sir.”commander giotto said.  ” Our next step is to determine where they went!”Ryan said. 

“Well you have been a huge help so far. Please continue your investigation!”the president said. “You will keep us in the loop? ” The prime Minister asked. “Of course “Ryan assured the planets second in command. 

Planet 

Tribal area 

 The captian was stairing at the nearby area. He looked around the greator area. He was looking for answers. Maybe not just those answers. Other answers as well. Kalera came over to him. “Cosmic thoughts?” Kalera asked. “I just have a lot on my mind. !” He said. “I knew that. What’s going on Ben? ” She asked. ” I don’t know larie. I never wanted to be a starship commander . That was Jason ‘s dream. Not myne. I was planing on returning to my old duties but then the mass crises. Now I am a legend. Of course I am captian now. ” He said. ” What do you want Ben? “She asked. “I don’t know. I am considering leaving star fleet. This life is not for me. “,He said.

“What would you do?”she asked.”I don’t know. I could stay in reserve status. Diplomacy ,commerical starships,government service. Maybe take up a professorship. Mayby waunder a but. Buy a ship and go off . Exploration on my own term without running into born,nazaka or Klingons or romulans no offense. Mayby I will go home. ” He said.

” Don’t make any decisions now. Your tired upset. Don’t make decisions when your tired or upset!”she said. ” Captian the chief has some!”Ryan said.
