Elba two.
“Mr. Chairman I call Lt. Commander Megan shall. ” Sarah said. The medical officer placed her hand on the wound.”Megan Elise shall associate medical officer u.s.s enterprise. ” the computer voice said.
“You are a member of the medical staff on the enterprise?”Sarah asked. “Yes I am. “She said. “Did you read the reports of doctor dahner on miss mccomic?”Sarah asked.
“I did mam. ” she answered. “You read the reports of doctor piper as well as you examined miss comic yourself. “Sarah asked. “Yes I was asked to conduct a second opinion. I read all of the reports before during and after her break down and the contact with the transdimensional life form. ” shall reported.
“What did you conclude?”Sarah asked. “I have concluded that her breakdown was caused  by the weakening of the dimensional shields. Her brain scans verify that a direct causation between her break down and interference from the other dimension. ” shall said.
“You consulted professionals not from the enterprise or the task force?”Sarah asked. “That is correct. We consulted star fleet medical,daystorm medical,Vulcan science academy ,John Hopkins and others. They concur with our findings. ” megen said.
“She has had emotional issues before the mass crises.in fact she had to have a waver and was admited on a probationary bases. “Sarah asked. “Yes that is true mam. She did not have any uses from the time of her academy Addison to the time of the breakdown. She took precautions during that time. “Megen said.
“Your a medical doctor but after reading the reports from doctor dahner and other principles,do you believe that she requires further hospitization?”Sarah asked.
“I do not believe so. She needs out patients advice but Manny do. There is no longer a stigma to mental heath consultation. ” Megan shal.
“I am concluded with this witness Mr. Chairman. “Megen said . “doctor shall ,the medical department on the enterprise is very close knit. ” an andorian bored member asked. “Yes I gues that is a fair asestment. “She said.
“Doctor Mark piper is a formidable figure? “The Vulcan chairman asked.”yes he is a farther figure I gues. “Megan said. “Was there pressure to support doctor piper’s and doctor dahner’s view?”Spencer French asked. “No . doctor pipper wanted an objective view. This wS an important issue we wanted to get it right. “Megan shal said.
“Were you unbiased in this matter?”French asked.”I do not know that I am ever totally unused Mr. French. I did my best to remain unclouded. As I said, I wanted to get this right. ” Megan said.
“Miss mcomic had a reputation as a legend in star fleet?she was considered a rising star in the fleet?”the andorian asked. “Yes I gues that is fair. “Megen said.
“Did you want to write a report favorable to miss mcomic?”French asked. “I tried to keep my personal views in check. “She said. “Did you want to see her returned to service?”the Vulcan chairman asked. “That was a more favorable outcome but I wanted what was best for the service. ” Megan said.
“That will be all. Thank you doctor. “The Vulcan said. She nodded.then She stepped down from the stand.

Qurters of Norris
Norris was looking over ships records. He had Klingon hip hop playing in the background. “Bridge to captain. ” the vioce of kolona said. “Computor pause recording. “Norris said he activated the com unit. “Go ahead!” Norris said. “Sir. Incoming mesege from admiral komack. On a scale of particle of space dust to quntrum implosion he is closer to the latter. ” the Klingon com officer said.
“Thank you for the warning Lt.I will take it down hear. ” Norris said. The image went from the image of the female alien com tech to the image of the admiral from his office in sanfransisco.
“Hello sir. ” Norris said. “What are you trying to do Ben? You we’re supposed to solve a crises not start a new one? You have every bureaucrat’s uncle breathing down my neck. “The admiral said.
“I don’t understand sir. “Norris said. “Your telling me a member of your team presenting a less then orthodox idea on how to clean up the mass goo and you have no knowledge of it?”the admiral asked. “No sir I don’t. ” the captain said.
“Doctor Carol Marcus she is on your team?”the admiral asked. “Yes she is. “Norris asked.
“She presented an idea that has us all on edge. You know nothing about it?” the admiral asked.”no sir I honestly don’t. ” Norris asked.
“Basically the idea is to introduce a substance that alters the area. It would create a New matrix.it would not restore pree mass space but recreate it. Its theoretical but if it worked …”komack said.
“If it worked,it could be weponized. “Norris said. “If we intend to use it in Klingon space we would have to share everything with them and The Romulans as well sense there space is affected as well. You can see the reprecautions?”the admiral asked.
“You said it is theoretical?”Norris said .”yes but if this idea is leaked they could peruse it. Your staf includes a non aligned alien whose alience is not known.”the admiral said. “You mee. Doctor xi the tholien ?” he asked. “Yes of course. ” the admiral said.
“I had not  heard about this. “Norris said. “Look Ben, loose lips colapses universes. I need you to get a lid on this. Keep this from anyone not in the family that includes your girlfriend. “The admiral said.
“She is not my girlfriend. “Norris said. “Have you made her your shepherds pie? ” the admiral asked.”well yes!”Norris asked. “Then she is your girlfriend. I don’t want any more talk of armigedon solution. There is another answer find it. “The admiral ordered. “Understood. Sir.”the captain said.
After he got off the line with the admiral he knew he had to act. “Doctor Marcus I need to see you now!”he said.
Doctor Carol Marcus knew that she had better not dottle.she was not looking forward to this encounter but knew it was inevetible.if course Kirk took the Artemis deeper into the post mass. Not that he would be helpful in this. He would probably be just as angry as Norris is.
She entered.”Carol you went behind my back. You went to star fleet without even informing me. “Norris said. “I realize that. “She said.
“I was totally Flat footed. The federation is totally up in arms. I had bo clue. ” he said. “I showed it to Jim. He felt as you did.he did not want me  publish this . sir we Harve to get creative. We have to think outside the box. ” she said.
“Look Carol you are a scientist.you think in abstract. We live in a galaxy governed by the agresive use of force.the federation is committed to peace. We are not ignorant of the humanoid will to power. This could be the answer but there are always unintended consequences.” Norris said.
“I understand that Ben. We have to come up with something.time is running out Ben.” she said “this is a Pandora ‘s box that cannot be opened.”he remarked.
“I disagre but I will respect your view. I won’t persue it any longer. Time is of the esense. ” she said.
He knew what she was saying was right. There had to be a better way. That had to . one can hold to ones principle and save the day. Situational ethics need not govern everything.
Confrence room
Captain Norris called people he believed were the best In There fields. There was chief engineer hallak, doctor piper ,security chief giotto,Dr. Terisha,Sr. Marcus,Dr. Kalara ,commander Jessup,.com tech kolona,xi, and Spock were there.
“Ok people, we need answers. We need them yesterday. The universe is getting antsy. The governments represented hear are getting antsy. We have to solve this. We are not leaving this room until we have a workable solution. Let’s get to it. “Norris said.
Elba two
Lt. Chabot continued to present evidence that her nervous breakdown was due to the universe’s structural integrity distortion. She us able to return to society.
During testimony Addison saw the door opened.She heard someone enter. She turned to see who it was. It was ryan Herrington.

“You want to get a bit of eat?”ryan asked. “Ensign I am your superior officer.that would be inopriate . ” she said.  Of course your correct. I ment no disrespect. ” he said. “I know that. ” he said.
The two dispersed. They started to go there seperate ways. S he turned around and looked. Then she kept going. She smiled.
“Mr. Chairman that concludes my case. ” Sarah said. “We will reces for lunch. We will convine at 1400. “The chairman said.
She wanted to see hi to ryan. Sarah advised against it.not until he adresed the bored. She agreed.
Staf mess hall
Sarah and Liz went over to ryan. “Hello ryan !”Liz said. “Hello Elizabeth!” ryan said. ” ok ry I want to see pictures. ” Liz said. He pulled out small obs from his poket. He showed her. “Derek is nowt five Hannah turned two. ” ry said. “They are adorable. ” Liz said.
“You named your kid sarek?” Sarah asked. “It was adie’s idea. Ambasador serek helped deliver him. She was transporting him to a sumit when They ran into Orion raiders. The ambassador found the name quite agreible. ” ryan said.
“I am sure he did. “Sarah said. “Ry. Adison does not need to be hear.she belongs out in the stars. The universe is in a crossroads ryan. She played a key role in saving the mass crises.we need her. This is what she is good at. “Liz said.
“Liz I understand your view . I read the transcript of the hearing before I arrived. You did not see things like I did. I was her husband Liz. I saw her downward spiral. I can’t do it again. I saw the effects it had on serek and little Hannah. I am going to apose release. “Ryan said.
“You have seen the evidence you can it deny that a led to b and. Without a without the structural instability if the multiverse,her breakdown would never have ocured “Sarah said.
“You cannot blame everything on the mass or the galactic instability !”ry declared. “The evidence would dismiss that statement. ” Sarah said.
“I have The right to adress the bored and I intend to exercise that right. ” ry said. He got up and left.he was not even close to be done eating.
“He is bitter !” Sarah said. “No he is not. He is not like that. He is hurt. They were once very much in love. Mayby a part of him still is. ” Liz said.

My inspiration to play the Vulcan chairman of the comision is Richard fancy. Best known to star trek fans as Vulcan captain in the first duty. He aliso appeared as a sky sprit in “tattoo”

Aftermath chapter two

Elba two.
The federation mentle heath  comision was governed by a council that consisted of representatives of the member world’s. The commisionors were mostly in the mental heath field.
The door opened, Addison entered along with her lawyer sarah,Liz and governor Corry.
They sat down at a table designed for the patients. It did resemble a defendants table at an American court. The commission tried to avoid it being a trial or even a parole hearing. The comparison could not be ignored
Addison looked around the room.  There were a few witness. Not the person she thought might be there. She sat down along with her representatives.
The Vulcan head Of the comision got ready to call the hearing to order. He hit a chime. “I nearby call this hearing to order. This hearing is to evaluate the request of Addison Jean mccomic to be released from the custody of the comision. ” setlik said.
“This comision was called at the request of miss mccomic. You are represented by council?” Spencer French asked. Sarah got up. “Lt. Commander sarah Chabot counsel for miss mccomic. 
“Commander you may present your petition ?'”the Vulcan chairman said. “Thank you Mr. Chairman. She got up. “Members of the commission. I nearby request the release of miss mccomic. Her mental collapse was due to influence of trans dimensional activity. I enter into evidence statements from doctor Mark piper senior surgeon of the starship enterprise and several concurrent reports from colleges of doctor piper. I also have reports from lt. Spock science officer of the enterprise and chief enginer halal attesting to the transdinensional. Activity. It Is our contention that the breakdown was caused by the said activity and th a she is fit to return to duty. ” sarah said.
“Your evidence is nearby entered into the record. “The chairman said.”Mr. Chairman I wish to call doctor Elizabeth dahner to testify. ” sarah said.
Doctor Elizabeth dahner sat down. She put her hand on a wound. “Elizabeth dahner,doctor of psyciatry. Curenrly member of staf Elba two. Star fleet commander assigned to starship enterprise. ” the computer said.
“Doctor dahner, you examined miss McCormick  before and after the incident involving the mass?”sarah asked. “I did Mam. “Liz said. “You atribbute the mentle breakthrough to the influx Of life forms from another dimension?” she asked. “Yes. Brain scans showed energy readings coinciding with the breakdown. With the dismentiling of the bracali experiment , her Braun scans returned to the readings taken at her last examination on the enterprise before her breakthrough. ” she said.
“Are you certain that the break down is connected to the mass?’sarah asked. “I have no doubt of that. A life form contacted her several times. “She said. “I submit those reports into evidence . “she said.
“I am finished with this witness.”sarah said. “Doctor your reports as a staf member are different that your testimony today.” an andorian commissionor asked. “Yes that is correct. I did not have the information I have now. My evaluation is inaccurate because I did not have pertinent information. ” Liz remarked.
“Your reports prior to her release are very troubling.”Spencer French said. “I realize that. I believe her mind was effected by the life forms. The evidence verifies that. “Liz said.
“Her last evaluation was not promising in fact you sais she might need at least a year more of inpatient care!”a telerite member said. “I was incorrect. ” Liz said.
“She has had break downs before she needed a special waiver to attend star fleet academy. “The Vulcan chair remarked. “Yes. But she has had a stellar carer in star fleet and attained command of the enterprise. She played a key role in the resolution of the mass crises. Captain Norris and commander Kirk has verified that. ” she said.”thank you doctor. You may step down. “The chairman said.
Startle craft Galileo.
In the cockpit, Dr. Carol Marcus scanned the space. She took extensive scans. She used everything she had.
“What is it Carol?”he asked. “Jim? The inert materials are poising space. I would compare it to alge. If we don’t do anything it will erode this space. In thirty years not even ships can servive. I  Don’t see how we can contain it. ” she said.

Conference room.
“This space is dying.if the area is not cleansed of the materials the area will be deadly to anythIng  Of  this universe. ” Dr. Marcus said.
  ” star fleet uses booms ,automated ships designed to clean plasma spills and other anprogenic natural disaster. The booms have been modified to deal with x particle. A fleet us on route.”Norris said.
“Can all of the particles be removed? From all reports there can be no remnants left?”the chancellor asked. “We don’t know but we will keep modyfing the bombs until we do “the Orion engineer said.
“Even with the entire fleet of booms working non stop conservative efforts it would take ten years to clean it up. “The chancellor said .
“This is not our final option chancellor. The booms are designed to buy us time. The best minds in the federation are working on solutions. ” Spock said.
“That is all fine and good but this is our empire at stake. The federation is relatively safe. “An advisor said. “We are committed to findings solution “Norris said.
“I suggest you come up with something soon. “The chancellor said.the transmission ended. “That sounded like a threat!”Smith said. “I believe it was.”Norris said.
“The chancellor is under anonymous pressure.  He was installed by hardliners. He came into office promising expansion. The mass threatened every aspect of the empire including economic and commercial interest. Nonm military cast play a smal role In Klingon politics but if there livelihood is threatened that cod change. “Terisha said.
“This is a threat. It may not totally a call to arms by the leader but a prediction. The chancellor first instinct is military but he may not be prone to conflict. “Jes said.
“This is a scientific and envioermentle issue.that is how we will solve it. Lets brain storm and come up with something. Science is the art Of making the impossible possible. Lets do it. ” the captain said.
The staf members at the conference table got up from the table. They started to disperse.
Dr. Carol Marcus had an idea but she was not sure if it was a good idea. “Jim do you have to get back to the Artemis?”she asked. “Not right away!”he said. “I have a possible solution to the mass crises. It is a doozy. I wanted to run it by you first”she said. “Am I going to not like it?”he asked. “It is very possible” she said. “Lets take a look if what you got!”he suggested.she agreed.
Qaurters of the captain
“I hope your not allergic or vegiterien. I did some research into diery customs bit your planet is similar to my one with different sub cultures. “Norris said.
“I am sure it will be fine!” kalera said. “So if your go into shock or are offended please don’t go to war with the federation “he asked.”no promises!” she said. They laughed. “I never heard a romylan laugh before !”he said. “Really? Rihansu comedy is legendary. We are silly wen not conquering planets. Sometimes we are silly as we conqur but any ways.”she said. “I had no idea. “Norris said.
“Lari I am afraid that the alience won’t hold. We seamed to be making strides . the chancellor is a pragmatist . I fear if he decides to go for a military solution the Romulans Will be forced to join you. We need to work  together to solve this. “He said. “I know that. I will do all I can to preserve the alience.”she promised. “I know. I gues I have gotten used to having you around. I would hate for You to not be around “he said “you  get rid of me that easily. ” she told him. “Good. ” Norris said.
Qurters  Jessup
The chime rang. “Come in !” Jessup Said .the door opened, it was terasha. “Hello”he said. “I have given thought to us. I wish to resume our marriage. “She said. “I stil love you. I can’t deny that.the fact is that we are literily from two different world’s. This alience is tenuous at best. There is no reason to believe that this will hold. ” he said.
“You stil don’t trust me do you?”she asked. ” you chose a corrupt leader over me ! How do I know you won’t do it again should mukerat Pesure a military solution. “He said. ” I won’t leave this time. I will request asylum in the federation. I am sure that I could teach anywhere. I am sure my skills could come in handy in any field. “She said. “You said that the last time. ” he said.
“Is there nothing left but bitterness in your heart ? “She asked. “Only a fool tries to rule a burning house. What was it sortrak who said that “never trust a double agent more then once. “He said. “I hope I can one day earn your trust . you know I would probably be crying right now but I don’t have tear ducts. “She said. She left. The door closed.
Elba two
Addison had changed from the yellow command officers dress to a white v neck scrub used by patients at the asylum. Addison had put her hair into a pony tail then taken it out and restyled it.
“You know you have styled and restyled it multiple times. ” Liz said.”I know. Its helps me relax. My adopted parents said I played with my hair when I arrived with them. I gues it is a kind of self soothing. “She said. “Are you nervous addy?”Liz asked. “A little. “Addison said. “The case is going well. .Liz’s said. “They have asked a lot of harsh questione. Some of the comisioners don’t seam convinced.”she said.
Sarah came in. “Dresing the part?”Sarah asked. ” the staf wanted me to ware the patients uniform. I did not want to argue. ” Addison said.
“You don’t look happy Sarah. ” Addison remarked. “There has been a last minute addition to those who wish to make a statement. ” she said. “Who is it?” Liz asked. “Ryian Harrington. ” Sarah said. ” oh no!”Addison said.

Qurters of Carol Marcus.
The two entered the quarters. She got a recorder and activated it. She called up a personal file. She showed it to Kirk.
He took the file and looked it over. “Project genises?”he asked. “It was a idea I had. I wanted to deal with the intergalactic problem of food shortege and other issues. I could not work out some quirks. I never showed this to anyone . ” she said.
“A device designed to reinvigorate a dead form creating a New matrix. ” Kirk said. “This could solve the problem of the post mass crises. The problem is that I don’t have a catylist. The most viable agency would be protomatter. “Carol said.
“Protonatter is unstable. It could make a bad situation worse. ” he said. “I know. If I present this to the task  force perhaps they could come up with something. “She said.
“Star fleet command might be reluctant to even sugest  this to the task force. The  partnership is a lose alience  . though we have strong supporters like kor and others the governments seam to be wavering. This could be weponized . “he said
“Look I know that scientist can be pawns of the military. We cannot have a brave new world if we refus to be brave .risk is the only way. The Klingons are dying. If the Klingons die chaos insues. We have to do something Jim .we are at a real risk of looosing it all . this is no ordinary emergentcy. ” Carol said.
” Carol this could start an arms race . a cold war a hot war. There has to be a better way. ” Kirk said. ” Jim there is not. This could be the answer. ” she said.
“Carol this is not the right choice. There is a. Better way. I bend the rules . I tend to rush in where angels fear to tread.we have to keep looking.”he said.
