Kalera needed to get away.she had no idea where to go. She did not want to visit any of the rihsnsu ships. She decided to go where perhaps she should not.
She went to where Ben’s sister lived. She took a deep breath and walked to the front door.she knocked.
The door opened,a young women with a baby In her arms opened the door. “You must be kalera.come in. I’m Amber.would you like some coffee?”he asked. “Sure thank you.”kalera said .
They sat down in the kitchen. “You know who I am?”kalera said. “Of course. Ben and I talked quite often. Ben used to be closest with my sister Becky. Now I gues I have filled that role. “Amber said.
“He has mentioned me. Good I hope?”she asked. “Yes very good. He likes you. “Amber said.”I had hoped he did. He is not always easy to read. “Kalera commented. “We have noticed. “Amber said.
“Today is a difficult day for your whole family I suppose. “Kalera said.”it is. Jason death affected us all. I was 16 when he died. He was out of the house for a lot of my childhood. Ben and him we’re close. Ben Jason had a bound my sister and my brother and I never could compete with. ” Amber said.
“Is it odd that Ben and I are friends? “Kalera asked. “The war was five years ago. We humans are usually very forgiving.it’s not like you fired the plasma Canon that took his life.”Amber said.she thought to herself if she only knew.
In the city of san francisco,Leslie and Galloway kept there distencec. Dr. Xi came to a cafe. “I have never served a choline before. What can I get you?”the owner asked. “The -strong-est-coffee -you-have.”the tholien said. “That I can do!”the owner said.
“What brings you two out hear?”a young lady asked. “We are baby sitting the tholien. ” Galloway said. “I did not realize we had diplomatic relations with the tholien.”she said.”we don’t. Xi is a special case. He has done alot for us.”Leslie said. U.s.s enterprise
“Uh lt. Harrington!”Spock said “oh I am I inactive. Call me Ryan.”he said.”very well I spoke to my farther. He is agreed to affiliate your renewering of vows. He has also offered to use the embassy to hold the wedding.”Spock said.
“Awsome. Please send my thanks to the ambassador. ” Ryan said. “I will do that. ” Spock said.
Pallice de laconcord
Ben never liked diplomatic functions. With something like this,he was not sure why he was hear.
“I thought I put these things behind me.” lt. Commander Jim Kirk remarked. “I am stil trying to get commander Leland out of retirement. ” norris said. “I gues we will muddle though. “Kirk said.
The Klingon commander norris and romulan commander m’len asked to join them. “Hello. So far so good. No major incident. ” Kirk said. “Are you anticipating trouble?””m’len asked. “No but trouble seems to find me rather or not I go looking fo it.”norris said.
Home of mark Leland
“Sarah!”Mark said. Mark was in a wheel chair. “How are you?”she asked. “One day at a time I suppose.I am getting stronger a little bit every day.” Leland said. “Are you going to return to star fleet?”Sarah asked. “I have no idea. ” Leland said.”you have plenty of time to make decisions like that. “Sarah Chabot said. “So Ben norris is the c.o?”Leland asked.”yes . Addison mccomic and Jim Kirk are sharing the first officer duties.”Chabot said. “I see. Things change. “Leland said.
“Doc why do yo act weird around me? The walking freezer unit was unfair. “Gary mitchel said.”nothing I have not heard before. ” Liz said.”it’s more then that. Every time you look at me,it’s like you are swing a ghost. I am prety sure we never met prior to the nues crises.” Gary said.
“You remind me of someone .perhaps something. “Liz said. “Something?” Gary asked. “A memory perhaps. “Liz said. “You really don’t to talk about it do you?”Gary asked. “No I don’t gare. ” Liz said.
“Ok. I will drop it . ” Gary said.”ok thank you. I don’t mean to be hostile. “Liz said. “Your fine Liz.soro doctor. “Gary said .”no Liz is fine. “She said.
Long term nursing facility
The facility was run by a former star fleet officer. It catered to those injured in space. It had Manny star fleet officers. Dr. Mark piper entered.
He came to a women in a wheel chair.both legs had to be amputated. “Ellie!”piper said. “Dr. Piper. I heard the enterprise was in town. “Ellie said.
“We escorted the Romulan and Klingon heads of sate to earth. I wanted you to know your not forgotten. ” piper said.
“I really apreciatete that. ” she said.”you are missed. “He said .”I miss it. Nothing like the enterprise. “She said. “No there is not. At my age I could retire. I imagine my successor could be even more ornery then I am. If that’s possible.”he said. She laughed.
“Sir. Several unmanned probes have stoped transmitting. ” kolona said. “This is highly unusual.”Spock said. “It is. Well hallak will hate this but I am taking the enterprise out to investigate .” mia bolt said.
“We have clearance to depart. “The Klingon com tech said.Ryan stood back. He was a civilian. He hoped that he would not be kicked off the bridge.
“Clear all mornings. ” mia ordered. Lt Eliot released the morning. Lt. Niles took the ship out. The space doors opened, the vessel headed out.
The nomad probes had moved closer to the planet earth. Nomad one had scanned the area. “Incoming vessel. U s.s enterprise. James t Kirk is not on bored. Oh well. Kirk is on earth. I will get my revenge. ” nomad one said.
“I have detected several objects. “Spock said. “On screen. “Mia bolt ordered. Spock activated the screen..on the screen was multiple nomads. “Oh my!” mia said.
“The probes are jamming the com network. “The Klingon female reported. “Shields up. “Mia ordered.
The enterprise tried to head to earth. They were at high warp. The nomad probe matched course and speed. The nomad bypassed the ship. While nomad one wanted to get revenge on the enterprise,nomad wanted the enterprise to witness seeing his revenge pourd out on earth. The planet that produced him and that had betrayed him.
The probe passed the enterprise. “They are on course for earth. “Spock said. “Crap. Get that com line open. “Mia ordered.
She hoped that this threat could be stoped. She was not sure. She would try.
End of chapter two.
Quarters of the captain
The captain entered his quarters. He was very tired. He felt worn out.he was exhausted. he looked at the pictures of the last family picture . it had him,his brother Jason,rebbeca ,Amber,Miranda and Jay. Everyone looked happy. A lot had changed since that picture was taken.
The door opened,yeoman Smith entered. “Oh the romulan preator wants to have you over for dinner on ki bartan one. “Smith said.
“Is there any way I can get out of it and not start an intergalactic incident?”Norris asked. “No I am afraid not. “She said
“Let me gues the Klingon chancellor also wants me to dine on qonos one?”He said. ” yes he does.”she said
“If I accept one I can’t decline the other?”he asked. “Correct !”Smith said. “I have the official ceremony the sate dinner.anything else I was hoping to get lost in the white moutons of new Hampshire for a bit. “The captain said.
“Your sister Amber has called .” she said. “I am going to try to see the family. I am swamped. “Nor is said. “Are you right sir?” the yeoman asked. “I am tired yeoman. I have gone from a senior officer to head of a task force. I am now a diplomat politician . I am wining and dining those responsible for Jason’s death. Mukurat started the war and jihal supported it. “He said.
“You need to get home while we are on earth. “Smith said. “I know. Its weird I have wanted to be a starship commander for a long time. Now that I have it I just don’t know. “Norris said.
Norris changed into the dress uniform. He met commander Addison mccomic who was Waring a green dress uniform. Jim Kirk arrived in green dress. Chief giotto and chief hallak went over to the captain. “The refit is beginning . please promise me that you won’t take my ship back into battle anytime soon.let’s explore a nice nebula” the Orion engineering officer suggested.
“No promises but I will try. ” the captain told him. “Thank you sir. “The Orion said. “I have the security arrangements. “The security chief said. “Do they meet with your approval?” the captain asked. “No but it’s works. “The chief said.
“Well chief do not mess me with my chair on the bridge. “The captain said.
They entered the transporter room. “Transporter ready when you are.”lt. Kyle informed the captain. They stepped on to the pad.” energize!”Norris said. The chief activated the control.the three were beamed off of the ship.
“So are you going to come back to star fleet?”Liz asked. “I don’t know. I miss her Liz. I miss us being a family. I wish I could convince her to come back to earth. “Ryan said “it’s never going to happen.”Sarah Chabot said. “I know but I can hope. “Ryan said.
Liz held Hannah.sarek was eating near his farther. “It is nice having kids on bored. I could use some getting reaqainted with pediatrics. “Dr. Piper said .
“I will keep that in mind doctor. Oh I wanted to surprise addie. I want to renew our wedding vows. “Ryan said. “She will love that. You know how sentimental she can get? ” Liz said. ” I do. ” Ryan said.
Star fleet command
The enterprise joined admiral komack and other v.I.p near the site .president Rona banbet was present. Along with horn acron her chief of staff and security advisor transmit hamin.
Everyone snapped to attention. In space the two shartle began to land. The two sides agreed that they would arrive at the same time. The two ships began to land.
The two ships landed. The two parties excited the craft. The Klingon chancellor and Senate preator excited the two craft.
“On breath of the United federation of planets and The planet earth,I am pleased to welcome you to earth on this historic visit. Welcome to mukuret chancellor of the Klingon empire and predator jihall of the romulan star empire. “President banbet said.
There were applause and chears. Norris was not sure about all this . he knew that after the mass ,things had to change. The rumors were that the anipovnoids were trying to build up a counter network on the outor rim. There was also the nazaka and the gorn and others. Perhaps it was time to bury the hatchet. On the anniversary of his brother’s death,that was a tall order.
It was odd that the very man who caused misery for so Manny was the guest of honor on earth. Norris had to smile and pretend he was happy with all this.
“Mr. Spock!”Ryan said .”uh Mr. Hearington it is agreible to see you again. “Spock said . “you too . I understand your farther is on earth . “Ryan said.
“Yes he is.”Spock said. “Look I wanted to surprise Addison with renewing our wedding vows. We got married on regal ten. We got married by a Vulcan priest. The ambassador has ment a lot to us and I would love for him to officiate . I know he is busy.”Ryan said.
“I believe I can prusaude him to do this!”Spock said. “Thank you .”he said.
“Liz I need to talk to you.”kalera said “of course. “Liz said. “As you know captain Norris’s brother was killed during an attack by a rihansu warlord during the Klingon war. “She said.
Yes it was part of his record.”Liz said. ” what he does not know is that I was the gunner on the ship that fired that fatal schot.” kalera said.
“I take it he does not know” Liz said. “No I just found out myself. “Kalera said .”what are you going to do?”Liz asked.”I don’t know. He has a right to know. I can’t hide it. I know when I do it is over.maybe it should be.”she said.
“Do you really like him?”Liz asked.”I do. More then I thought I would or could. ” she said. “As hard as it is you have to tell him. You cannot keep this from him as hard as is it. “Liz said. “Ok . I know you are correct.”kalera said.
In the corridor , “please promise me you will stay out of trouble ” the security chief said.”you- have-my-word co–mand-Der. ” the tholien said .
“Your letting him go alone To earth?”Dr .piper asked.”what is the worse that could happen? Besides Leslie and Galloway are going to tail him .” the chief said. “Ok .”the doctor said.
“Hi Liz” Gary mitchel said. “Mr.Mitchell”she said. Things had been weird between those two. He saw her as stuck up . she remembered him but they had never met.
“You ok Liz?”mua bolt asked”yea just lost in thoughts ” she said. Lee kelso tried not to laugh.
In space nomad had found a way to replicate himself.he had constructed an army of nomads. The nomads moved out. The ship headed to earth.
Nomad was preparing to go to earth to exert his revenge. It was the time.
End of chapter one.
Office of the president of the federation.
The federation had no official channels with The Klingon empire. They had no diplomatic channels. The current arangment was unofficial and New. No diplomatic channels had been set up.
“Madam president the grazella special envoy has arrived. “A receptionist said. “Send him in!” president said. The door opened. The grazella representative entered the office. “Madam president. “Lakear derap said. “Mr. Envoy! I hope your trip to earth was not too eventful!”the president said. “I have had worse. I bring a message from the Klingon empire. They insist that the incidents are not authorized by the empire. The attacks are being perpetrated by those to a rougue admiral maimed g’horn. ” the representative said.
“This does not instil Faith in the chancellor and his government. It is hard to partner with a weak government especially when we have no assurance of protection. “The president said.
“The imperial government appreciates that. They are trying to handle this situation. The Klingon empire is taking the brunt of this crises. “The ambassador said.
“I am aware of that. I am aprecitive of there position. At the same time I cannot put my people at risk.the enterprise is currently in Klingon space . I don’t know if we can do more until the situation with rouge factions abates.”the president said.
“I will communicate that to the Klingon. “The ambasador said .”very well ambassador. “The president said. “We will keep in touch madam president.”the ambassador said. “Of course!”the president said. The non aligned representive left the room. The door closed.
“We stil relief convoys heading into Klingon space. Do we turn them back?”horn acron the chief of staff asked. “We cannot have that convoy go into enemy space under these circumstances. There is no cease fire in reality.the fleet must turn back. “Haman the security advisor said.
“The fleet cannot go into hostile space under these circumstances. “An aid said. “The convoy will maintain corse for the border but is not to cross into Klingon space without my consent. “The president said.
“We help them we risk getting our fleet schot. Down. We don’t help they acuse of fiddling while son is burned. “Acron commented.
“If the mass expands, lt could have a further destabilizing effect on the empire. Outer territories might try to cisesde. “Hamin said. “I want hourly updates.no matter what.”the president said. The staff agreed.
The Klingon vessel commanded by g’horn attempted to intercept the enterprise. “Hail the vessel!”Norris ordered. Lt. Kolona tried to open a channel to the warship.
Odd she thought. A few days ago,she was a soldier in the I.d.f now she was working for star fleet.this was once her superior officer.
“No response. “Kolona said.she kept trying but there was no response. No one expected that they would.
“Now in weapons range!”the gunner reported. “The commander of the enterprise is a fool. He should have fired the first schot when he had the chance. Procede!”g’horn said.
The Klingon ship opened fire on the enterprise. The ship was hit. “Shields holding. ” Gary reported.”return fire. “Norris ordered.the enterprise fired phasers and photon torpedoes on the Klingon ship. The warship fired as well.
The Klingon vessel fired on multiple sections of the ship. Damage control procedues went into effect. Several decks had to be sealed off.
The enterprise fired on the Klingon warship. The enterprise fired on multiple sections of the ship.
The Klingon vessel opened fire on the enterprise’s deflector dish. The dish was hit.the explosion caused the enterprise to least.the vessel quickly regained it’s gravity.
The enterprise fired a series of volleys on the Klingon warship. The enterprise did not let up.
Neither did the klingon. Both Boris and g’horn were skilled tactician. They both knew what they were doing.
“Captain the battle seams to effecting the mass. I am detecting massive energy readings eminating from it!”Spock said.
“Are we about to experience New mass?”Norris asked. “I am uncertain sir!”Spock answered.
As the battle continued,Spock focused on studying the area near the mass. “Cptain a mass is about to form right above the warship.”Spock said.
“Warn g’horn! “Nor is said .the female Klingon tried to contact the Klingon vessel.
The Klingon vessel tried to get away from the new mass. The warship went to high warp. The ship went to maximum acceleration. The mass started to form.
The enterprise swooped in and engaged a tractor beam. The vessel was able to get away. The vessels cleared the area.
“We are clear!” Spock said. “For Now!”Lee kelso said. “We got there attention.admiral g’horn is demanding we release him at once!”Kolona said. “Now they are willing to talk. ” Dr. Piper said.
“Disengage the tractor beam.”Norris ordered. Gary mitchel presed the disengage button.the ship was released. The warship moved away from the enterprise.
“What will he do Now? Will he resume the battle ?”Kirk asked.”he may. Lets find out!”Norris ordered.
“They are powering weapons!”Spock said.”you got to be kidding. ” Mark said.the Klingon warship fired on the enterprise.for the most part the enterprise dodged the weapons .
The enterprise turned around .the ship fired on the warship. The shields had been weakond. The Klingon vessel went to warp.
“The vessel has withdrawn.”Spock said. “He will be back!”Gary said.”count on it!”terisha said.”hope fully he does not bring some of his friends with him. ” Kirk said.”agreed!”Norris said.
“Orders sir?”mia asked. “Head back for the mass. We have work to do.”Norris said. The enterprise headed back to the mass.
Everyone knew that g’horn would be back. He would not give up. Neither would those allied with him. The mass was still a huge threat.
“Captains log,the enterprise gas returned to the area where the mass was. The enterprise has held position and has resumed scan of the mass. The scientific crew is working around the clock to getting to the bottom of the mystery of the mass. ” Norris said in the log.
Addison was writing . she recorded the dreams in a diery.she was trying to short it out. She believed that she was on the verge of something. She was just not sure what she hoped to sort it all out and do it quickly. That was not as easy as it sounded.
The door opened . Dr. Eluzebeth danger entered. She went over to The table where Addison was. Elizrbeth did not ask if she could join her,she just did.
“Liz I think I have figured this out. I think I know what the dream means but your not going like it,Neither is the captain.”Addison said.
“Ok. What is it?”Liz asked. “I think that the dreams is some kind of telepathic contact . perhaps from The mass or someone or something else. I believe that is a message . “Addison said.
“Ok.lets assume that this is a meseege. What is the messege?”Liz asked.
“This is where it gets nutty Liz. I think that we need to go into The mass. “Addison said. “If we do ,we will be obsorbed!”Liz said. “Will we? Are we sure of that? “Addison said. “You r suggesting something really serious. Your suggesting we risk our lives perhaps the future on a dream. “She said.
“I know but we are at a stand stil. We have nothing. What if there is an answer. ” she said.
“You can’t be serious addy ! This is suicide!”Gary said. “Th-ere I-s mer-it t-o it”the tholien said . “it is risky but there is a chance that the mass or another life form is attempting to contact us!”kalara said.
“No offense but miss mccomic us not a realublr source. Even if the dream is telepathic contact it could be a trap. “Gary said.
“It could be a clue. An important one. We have to take risks.” terisha said.
Commander Norris did some thinking. He considered what to do. He considered his moves . he knew the stakes. He got up. He paced around the bridge for a couple of seconds. He tried to weigh the odd. He considered both sides.
” if we separated the saucer from the drive could we teather the two Sides?”noris asked. “Yes!”the tholien said. “I want every science staf to work on having the two sections connected. Jim you will command the saucer.the rest of us.we are going in. ” Norris declared.
“Captains log, the mission of star fleet is to boldly go where no one had gone before. That requires risk.this seams to be fool hardy.I see no other option.
“You don’t look happy ?” Norris asked. “I’m not. The saucer seperation has never been attempted outside the lab. “The Orion said. “Look I see other way. We have no other options. “Norris said.”alright. “He said.
“Everything is set up. “Kalara said. “So are you coming with us doctor or staying with the saucer?”noriss said. “As senior rihansu it is my duty to come along. Besides if this works u don’t want the federation taking all the credit. “She said. “If this works the chancellor will rewrite history.in the new version mukurat will have done it all by himself.”tetiahsa said. “So why are we sticking our necks out for people who don’t give a lick for us?”Mark asked. ” needs of the many!”Norris said.”of course!”the doctor said.
The two sides got to as a safe distance .the two sides detached.the drive went in.
End of part five
“Now entering the Klingon empire . ” Lee kelso reported. “Take us in. “Commander Norris ordered. The enterprise entered Klingon space.”we are now in Klingon space !”Spock announced. “Out of the frying pan and into the fire!”mark remarked.”are you referring to the rihsnsu star empire as a proverbial frying pan?”kalara asked. “Yes I am. No offense !”Dr. Piper said. She laughed “none taken doctor piper”kalara said.
“Dr. Piper bark is worse then his bite usually !”Norris said.”I don’t know about that. I think I can be quite ferocious. “Piper said. “I will keep that in mind. Perhaps your telshiar file needs to be revised. “Kalara remarked .”wait the telshiar has a file on me? An old country doctor?” he said .”you are chief medical officer of the flagship of the federation! The intelligence agency keeps tract of key people!”kalara said.
“Liz I am not sure if I should be honored or horrified.”doctor Piper said.”just don’t let it go to your head.” dahner told him. He chuckled. “No promises Liz!”he told her.
“My Lord we have confirmed that the enterprise has crosed from rimusnagen space to Klingon imperial space. ” the gunner reported. “Very good. Your in my back yard now Ben Norris. “The admiral commented.”should o target them ?”the gunner asked.”not yet!”the commander said. “Understood!”the weapons officer said.
Khas went over to his commanding officer. “I don’t understand excelentcy. Why not attack now?”the Jr officer asked.”I must know why they are hear.they told our leaders that they want to help us.I fund that hard to believe. I am still not convinced that they are not behind the mass. I want to ascertain rather or not they are involved.” the admiral said.
“What if it turns out that They are not involved?”khas asked. “It hardly matters commander . they are our enemies. If they are by standers we will still turn on them for the simple reason that they are not us!”the admiral declared. The Jr officer said nothing in response. He was ordered to resume his duties.he gave the Klingon salute and complied with his orders.
“We are now in position!” Spock reported. “All stop mia!”Norris ordered. Lt. Mia bolt stoped the enterprise .the ship came to a full stop. “Now at full stop captain.”mia reported.
“Doctor Marcus lunch the probe!” Norris ordered. Dr. Carol Marcus the wife of lt. Commander Kirk prepared the probe. After a smal time the computer reported that the probe was ready for lunch.she activated the lunch.the probe left the large starship.
“The probe is away. ” Carol announced. The probe departed the ship. It traveled to the mass. The probe Was shielded so it could get pass the mass without being obsorbed. How the tholien designed was not known. The command crew suspected that the scientist was not too eiger to divulge this information. They let it go.
The probe started to enter the mass. The probe was created to conduct constent scans. The sansors was constently taking readings.
“A.. S.. I.. Sus-pec-Ted. The mass .. Is .. ‘re-struc-ing the space -around -it.”the tholien reported. “The mass is altering space. “Dr. Marcus said. “I agree. “Spock said.
“To our thinking the space is being rendered inert. I am not totally sure that’s accurate. It May be usefull to the mass. ” Dr. Obk said.
“Is the mass using space as food or fuel?” Kirk asked. “I cannot ascertain that lt. Commander.” kalara reported.
Lt. Commander Addison mcomic felt odd. She started to feel disoriented . she was in space. At least that she believed. She floated though space.
“Adison! Adison!” the voice said.”you again.why do you keep coming to me? ” she asked. “You come to us ! I mearly acknowledge your presence. ” the voice said. “Who are you?”Addison asked. ” you Must come to me. You cannot stop the inevetible. Acept what must be. Surrender is the answer. Risking the loss of all saves all. ” the voice said.
She was dragged inside a vacuole. “No!!” she protested. She screamed as the person got closer to the doorway. She saw the shadow man.the thing she believed was the voice. “Stop fighting it !” he declared.
She was swept inside. She fell inside the door way. She vanished. She woke up. “Adison! Are you alright?”Liz asked. “I think so. I had That dream again. “Addison declared.
Dr. Piper scanned her with a tri corder . “I am detecting the same elevated readings as I detected the previous Times you passed out. Rather or not it is contact by some kind of life form is not known. ” Dr. Piper reported.
“It felt real sir.rather it was or not I have no idea. ” Adison said to the captain.
“Could she have been in contact with the mass?”Carol asked. “You really think that the mass is a life form?”Gary asked. “Perhaps not as we think of life Mr. Mitchell but it could be a sentient form of life even if it alien from our understanding!”Spock said.
“Plants are life. Asuming it is like a plant. “Smith said. “With due respect miss mcomic has had a history of psicotic behavior. I don’t think we can go on her word.”Gary said.
“With all due respect lt. That was uncalled for. You say I am a walking freezer unit. “Liz said. “Okeveryone let’s dial it back a thousand notches. Xi do you believe the mass is a life form?”Norris asked.
“I… Bel- leave It co-uld be. Comand-Der. “Xi said. “It could be a different life form not necessarily the mass. ” Spock reported .
“It was urging me to give up. I am not sure what it ment. ” Addison said. “Was it urging us to accept our fate. A kind of gloat?”the security commander asked.”Matty but I did not get the impression That it was gloating . I got the impression that he wanted to help. It sounds fatalistic but I don’t think
it was. ” Adison commented.
“You really think this is a meesage?”Gary asked. “I don’t know lt. ” Addison said
“Hold on I believe I have found somet thing. “Carol said. “Report!”Norris ordered “I believe I have located a vacuole. ” terisha said.
“Can you have the probe zero in on it?” Norris asked. “I a-m a temp-ting to command-Der!”the tholien said.
The probe attempted to get a clear reading on the doorway. “I have lost telemetry!”Carol said. “Was the probe destroyed?” jess asked. “Before it stoped transmitted,it sent a single that it was being dragged into the vacuole. “Terisha said.”if the line between our dimension and another has been compromised perhaps the probe ended up there .” kalara said.
“Its possible.” Spock said. ” could another probe be modified?”The captain asked. ” yes! But will time take. Do.mi..I-bl-e yes!” xi said.
All of a sudden the aler Claxton sounded. “We have a perimeter alert!” Kirk said. ” report!”Norris ordered.”we have incoming. D seven warship. Its configuration is identical to admiral g’horm’s flagship. ” Spock said.
“Dawn it ! Shields up ! Red alert!”Norris said. The two ship’s we’re about to do battle.
End of part four
I was not sure how to write lines for tholien. In an episode I imagine either a translation critical such as a robotic sounding English translation or sub titles.
The walking freezer unit comment comes from “where no one has gone before ” the second pilot.
Goddard research lab
“I believe that it may be a cloaking device.there are rumors that the Klingon have traded technology with the romulons. ” lt. Anderson said.
“We are about to come attack!” a tech said. “I agree. Shields up. Inform star fleet command quickly ” lt.commander Tyler said.
The Klingon battle cruser decloaked. The large warship opened fire on the outpost. The outpost was lightly armed.it did have some armerments.the station. Fired what it did have. The turret fired on the warship.
“Captain we are getting a distress call from the Goddard outpost. They say that are under attack by the Klingon.” the com officer informed the ship’s commanding officer.
“Helm set course for the base maximum warp. Order all ship’s to near by to head for the base. ” captain Emily Nicollet said. The argronaught went to warp. It went as fast as it could to the base.
The Klingon veasel continued to pound the warship. The research outpost did not want to just give up. Commander Tyler used whatever weapons she had in her arsinal which was not much.lt. commander Tyler was not going to just give up. The station tried to hold together long enough for the Calvary to arrive.
The argronaught and several smaller ship’s came out of warp. The ship’s broke formation. The vessels fired on the Klingon vessel. The vessel got off a few more shots. Then the vessel started to move out.
“The vessel is retreating. ” science officer announced. “Lets form a wall of protection around the station just in case they decide to return!”niccolete ordered. “We are being hailed. It is the Klingon warship. ” the com officer informed the captain. “On screen. ” Nicollet said. On the view screen appeared the admiral.
“This is admiral g,korm ,the Klingon empire will not lay down and give up. Not all of us believe in the classy story we are being spoon fed. If we are to are to be destroyed we will go down fighting.we will die on our feet. ” the admiral said.
The screen faded. “Are they really going to abandon any chance of finding a solution to this?” the first officer asked .”some are. I just hope not everyone in the empire feel that way.” captain niccolet said.
Star fleet command
“The area contaminated is being declared the x zone. So far the area covers an area near Sherman’s planet all the way to romulan space. So far qonos Romulus are not in danger.”admiral komack said.
“There have been no reports of an tremors or psicotic activities beyond the x zone?”trasmat haman asked.
“That is correct Mr. Haman.”admiral Fitzpatrick said.”will that change?”the security advisor asked. “We do not know but it is likely that it will. ” science admiral setlic said.
“If the mass expends Sherman’s planet,arkanis donatu are all in jeopardy. “Komack commented. “Do you need to evacuate those planets?”The president chief of staff horn acron a zackdorn said.
The door opened,an aid entered. The officer went over to the admiral in command. He whispered to the admiral. The two went back and forth. “Mr. Acron a Klingon cruiser attacked the Goddard base. The base was saved. The ship was forced to withdraw. The ship has been identified as commanded by admiral g’horn. Orther ship’s have hit multiple target along the federation -Klingon frontier. “Admiral Komack said.
“This is an attack on our sovereignty!”hamin said. “The admiral is known to rush in without the consent of his superiors. “Fitzpatrick said. “The empire could have decided to go on there own.”haman said. “That would be suicide!” an admiral said. “It may be the Klingon way!”haman said.
“We will tread lightly.the president will attempt to keep the peace. This truce is important. “Acron said.
“How are you feeling Ben ?”Dr. Piper Asked. “Like I got run over by a super nova!” commander Norris said. “That headache may last for a while. I Will do what I can. “Dr. Piper said.
Commander jeshop and lt.bolt entered.”what will we got people?”Norris asked. “We are randevezing with the romulan fleet near en dakrado . commander m’len will be transferring his flag to one of there ship’s. “Jeshop said.
“What will the romulons do?”Norris asked. “They are going to evacuate planets near the x zone. Temporily they plan to seal off the area. Enact a full qarentine. ” mia said.
“This thing will continue to spread will it not?”Norris asked .”we think so. “Mia said.
“Bridge to commander jeshop !” kolona said. “Go ahead lt!”jeshop said. The lt informed jeshop of the attack. Then he informed the commander.

The chime rang “come in!”she said.the door opened. “Jess!”she said. “You people never change do you?”he asked. “I’m sorry!”she said.
“Your space is threatened with the real possibility of extinction. What does admiral g’horn do? He’s attacks ship’s and bases along our side of the neutral zone. While we could be devoting our resources to protecting your sorry buts we have to be on high alert from as Manny ship’s as sided with him. “He said.
“G’horn has always been what your race called a lose canion. “She said. “How did you get to be an admiral? So if he manages to overthrow the high council will you support him? Will you support his going out of business war. “Jeshop asked.
“How did you become so bitter?” she asked. “I trusted you Terisha .I trusted your words. I thought you ment what you said. We were not interested in territorial expansion. We plan to push your people out then sue for peace which we did. “He said.
“You never forgiven me for that?”terisha asked. “Some wounds are harder to heal. ” she said. “I could not betray my world.I knew the chancellor was wrong but I could not bring myself to side with our enemies during battle. ” she said.
“Am I your enemy?” he asked. “No of course not. I made the wrong decision ok? Are you going to hold this against me for all of eternity?” she asked.
“No not for all eternity!” he said. “Look I never stoped loving you I regretted leaving you. ” she said. “I did miss you during breef interludes of being mad at me!”he said. “I missed you!” she said.
“I imagined you coming back. I hoped you would. You never did. “He said. “I am hear now!”she declared. “If we servive the current crises you will leave again. I can’t do it again.I can’t watch you leave again. “He said.
“Captains log , the enterprise has randevezed with the rest of the fleet. Commander m’len will be leaving the ship. While doctor kalara has requested to remane on the ship. Doctor xi check will also be remaining. ”
Seated at the table was commander Norris, commander jeshop, Addison mcomic,doctor piper, chief engineer halak,Jim Kirk,doctor Markus, lt bolt,security chief, xicheck ,dahner, kelso,Spock ,mitchel and kalara.
“Doctor xicheck! Norris ordered.the non humanoid got up. “I have located what I belve was the first sighting of the mass. It is in Klingon space. ” Dr. Said.
“We have been unable to take any readings seance the initial occurrence. “Spock said.
“I have designed a probe that contains advanced shielding . l believe we can send the probe into the fields and get accurate readings. ” the tholien said.
“I have looked over the probe. I believe that the test could work!”the Orion enginner said .”I have come to the same conclusion. ” Spock said.
“We have gotten permison from the chancellor to go to the area.whoever ship’s loyal to g’horn May attack us. We will have to stay on our toes. ” Norris said.
“We will be using an aft station dedicated to the probe. Dr. Marcus will monitor the probe. Dr. Kalara will monitor ship’s systems. The next few days will be tense. We will be facing a mutl facited struggle. I need everyone to bring there A game. ” Norris said.
“A game?”kalara asked. “Our very best! “Lix said. “Ok any questiones. Ok that will be all. “Norris said.
The crew got up. They started to disperse. Some left. Some left talked.
Qurters of Norris
“You wanted to see me Ben?”Jim said. “Right now I have a lot of civilians on bored.we are in a war footing although it is a war against a naturally ocuring organism. Stil this is a crises. During it I want everyone to be star fleet officers with commission. I want you and Addison to be executive officers with commanders. Just during the crises.then whatever you want to do is fine!”he said.
“Carol accept a commission?”Kirk asked. “Lt commander. “Norris said. “Well ok. I’m in I gues.I get to stare the exec duties with someone whose mentle stability is somewhat in doubt. “Kirk said.
“Liz will be keeping a close eye on her. If there is a problem it can be delt with then. “Norris said. “Alright.can you trust dahner.those two are friends. “Jim said. “Your paranoid jim. Look I will be carefull. Are you or not?”Norris asked. ” I’m in “Kirk said. “Eccelent”he said.
Adison entered the bridge.she wore a yellow uniform dress. Some female officers especially Sr. Officers opted to ware uniform pants but not Addison.she liked fashion and wore dress. The door opened.she entered the bridge.
“All decks stand ready. “The Klingon at com said. “Lee set course for Klingon space .”Norris ordered. “Got it ” Lee reported. “Mia punch it.”Norris ordered. The enterprise went to warp.
Qurters of Norris
“I hope you like human food. I hope your not allergic to any of it.”Norris said. “I am sure it will be fine. ” kalara told her.
She took a bite. “Very good. ” she said. “Your a bit of an enigma kalara. Are you simply as scientists or are you a naval sub commander both?”he asked.
She laughed. “My passion is science Ben. It has been sense I was a little girl. I would prefer to devote myself to scientific research.I am a member of the royal family so I can do mostly what I want. ” she said.
“Your royalty?”Norris asked. “Well technically. I am a fouth cousin of the emperor. It is really not a big deal. “She said. “Ok I don’t have to call you your highness.”he said. “Please don’t. I am not really into titles. “She said.”nor am I. “He said.”please my friends call me lari !”she said .”lari I like that “he said.

“My Lord! We have confirmed that the chancellor has given permission for the enterprise to traval to the Klingon side of the mass”khas said.
“That fool! What happened to the chancellor? He was once the greatest of us. Now he is not even the shadow of his former self. ” the admiral said.
“We should attack the enterprise. Destroy the enterprise. Pure pandemonium. “Khas said. “Order our ship’ to intercept the enterprise! ” the admiral said.
The ship headed for the enterprise. The enterprise headed for the mass. The universe was hanging in ballience. The one chance might be derailed.
End of part three.

Office of admiral g,korm
The office was decorated with statues and swords and ships.they we’re all associated with weapons and war. The chime rang. “Enter” the admiral ordered. The door opened. An officer entered . “excelentcy ! Reports are coming in. New masses are forming. The fleet is on high alert. The empire is working with the federation and romusnagen to combat this.”the underling khas said.
“Then our glorias leaders do not believe that this is an attack?”The admiral said. “No. The officials word from Hugh command is that this is an act of nature. They do say it is transdamensional. They do not believed that it is a threat by an enemy power. ” khas said.
” how can the chancellor and the General staff be so blind? For some reason the science corps has gained influence. I believe this is an attack. Some kind of weapon. This is not a natural disaster. It is a new weapon maybe even a doomsday weapon. ” g’korm said.
“There is no proof of that?”khas responded. “We are klingon.we do not debate and wait for the interstellar law triburneral to rule.we respond!”the admiral said.
“What if you are wrong.if this is an environmental threat ,our inaction could hasten the destruction of the universe or delay a solution making a diluge inevetible”his aid said.
“Better to die on our feet then to live on our knees. “The admiral said. “You have my suport either way sir. “Khas said. “I had hoped to have you at my side. The chancellor has declared a truce during his crises.he has even authorized joint operation. While I am loyal to the empire that does not mean I blindly follow the man who ocupupies the seat of keyless. The chancellor governed only by the deference of the military.if a chancellor fails to governed for the best of the empire,it is the duty of the commanders to disregard those orders. I intend to lunch a preemptive attack on the federation and romusnagen. Hit there outtor frontier. We will wage a war of attrition by engaging in hit and run raids on the federation. We will chip away at them. Then we will lunch a big attack. “The admiral said. “Sucess !”he said.
“Enterprise log lt. Mates Jean bolt temporarily in command reporting.after beaming over survivors from the romulan vessel preditor,we have sucesfully gotten pass the mass. Chief engineer halak is looking over ships system’s while doctor piper and the medical staff look over the crew of the late romulan flagship. ” she said.
Dr. Piper was overwhelmed. The sickbay was full of people. While romulan did not share the Vulcan rejection of emotion they were more stoic then many world’s.these made medical treatment fairly easy.
Things we’re starting to die down. Except for a few exceptions most of the injuries were negligible. Control was starting to be regained.
Nothing had changes with commander Norris. He was in a coma. Forunently he was stable. All attempts to revive him had failed. Piper thought that letting him recoup on his own was the best strategy.
The door opened,Jim Kirk entered.”Jim !”piper said. “Mark how is Carol?”Kirk asked. “They are fine !”piper said. “Mark they?Kirk asked. Carol clad in a sickbay gown said,”surprise!”she said.
“It was a surprise to her as well. Your having twins a boy and a girl. Please don’t name him James Jr. Mark would be a good name.”piper said. “I will take it under advisement.”Kirk said.
“This is a surprise!”he said.”I am as taken aback as you are Jim.”she Said .He was happy by the news but wished that this did not happen in the shadow of the mass.
At lt. Bolt’s request commander m’len and Dr. Kalara entered the bridge.they were escorted to the command center of the enterprise by security chief geoto. “Thank you for coming to our aid. We are in your debt. In another reality we could be at war. I hope things will change. ” m’len said
“Star fleet does not abandon people!”Dr. Terisha said. Commander jeshop started to say “unlike some people ” but a dirty look from Dr. Convinced him not to.
“It did not go unnoticed or unappreciated !”Dr. Kalara said. “I am happy that the casualties were not higher then they could be. I assure you that this crew and the federation is committed to solving this crises. “Mia said.
“I cam see that. “M’len said. “Why are these mas still cropping up?”yeoman Smith said. “The structural integrity of the galaxy is daminusing .the mass is a syimptom of a bigger diseases. The universe is about to implode. ” Dr.xicheck said.
“How did this happen?” Gary mitchel asked. “How is irelivent lt. That is happening is. ” the tholien said.”do you have proof of this?”Lee asked .”no but it is only thing that makes sense!”the tholien said.
“It is plausible. I believe that is is a possibility. “Spock said.”the wall of the galaxy must be revealed.I believe it is possible to do so. If I. Right we are dealing with two separate issues. The mass and the vortex. Both have to be dealt with. “Terusha said.
“Captain we are getting more reports of insanity reported on ships and bases along both neutral zones.”kolona said. “That could also prove xiceck’s theory “Terusha said. “Agreed!”Mia said.
“We have to work on both problems. “Mia said. “Agreed.”the commander said.
Office of the federation president
“We have confirmed that the masses are all along the out or frontiers of the Roman and klingon areas and in The outtor edge of the federation. This area.we are calling this the x zone. “Defence sacritary suvok of Vulcan said.
“The area us expending.it has expended Spence first detected.”tril science minister said.
“Can we stop this ?”rygelian president bonda ranbet asked.”star fleet daystorm Vulcan science academy and others are working on it. It will take time!”science minister Ron Hayden said.
“I want the full weight of the federation working on this. This is our number one issue. “The female alien president ordered. They all said,”yes madam president!”they all said.
“We have been able to work with the romulan and to some existent the klingon. We would like to continue to do so.”the science minister said.
“I agree. I would like to continue that as well!”the president agreed. “What will we do it the partnership falls apart?”intergalactic security advisor trascot hamin a coridon said. “We will be on our own. I want to have a contingency plan but I want to keep the partnership if we Can. “The president said.
Qurters of Addison mccomic
Addison felt sleepy. She changed into a nightie and was barefoot.She fell asleep. She was In space. She was propelled at warp speed.
She neared the mass. She tried to avoid it.she screamed. “Why do you fight me!”a voice said.
“Who are you?”Addison said .”the key to wining is defeat. Give up Leeds to life!”the voice said. “We don’t just give up. We won’t go quietly if we die we do so fighting.”she said.
She saw a man in a hood. “You cannot fight this. The answer lies within you. There is an answer.you must be open to it. “The shadow man said.
“There must be a way. There must be a way. This can’t be a no win situation.this Cannot be the end of history. “Addison declared.
“You do not understand. Open your mind. This need not be the end. “The shadow man said.she woke up in a cold swet. She was very confused. It made no sense.
She had no idea what all this ment. Could this be some kind of answer. Could this be her subconscious trying to tell her something. Could she be insane. She had no idea. She wanted to be useful.she wanted to be back in star fleet.
Even If she was able to help save the galaxy,she might still not be allowed that. She stil believed She had something to contribute. Proving that might be difficult.
A crewman at an aft station was becoming agitated. “Are you alright?”Dr. Kalara asked. “What’s it to you?”he asked. “Lt I will remind you that the doctor is a sub comansder in the imperial star navy and star fleet has granted them reciprocity during this crises.she is The equivalent of a full commander I. Star fleet. “Mia said.”understood sort sir!”he said.
Mia was getting concerned.there had been several incident and some near misses. The federation and romulan had been In a cold war sense the end of the earth Romulan war ended before the founding of the federation. Nerves fraying was expected.
Could it be the psicosis impacted by the mass or the vortex or both. Perhaps it was just nerves.how would they know.if the crew went mad In romulan space could an incident make things worse? Could it end the uneasy alience?
“I am deeply sorry doctor.”Mia said.”no harm done captain. If there is to be a new era between our people it will take time to heal. “Kalara said.
Could she be a person dedicated to peace. Mia was not political. She grew up on freighters and mostly outside the federation. Despite evidence of the contrary she was a pacifist at heart. She wanted it to work.
Klingon federation border
Klingon vessel sompek
“I have located a target. It is a research post. It is lightly armed and light compliment. It does have a setilite which is important to star fleet. “Khas said.
“Can you get us there ?”the admiral said.”yes We are going.I figured you would send a bird of prey or a raptor.”khas said.
“Thoygh it is stragetucly unimportant ,it Is an opening salvo in perhaps the biggest war in galactic history. I want to start the war and finish it. So help me kahless I will. ” he said.
Khas ordered the helm to set course to the space lab Goddard. The vessel went to warp. The vessel activated a cloaking device. The vessel traveled was cloaked but still traveled though an area refered to the federation as the desert.
While the cloaking technology was new the federation May have learned of it and developed a counter agent.the admiral would take no chances.
“What is it?”lt. Commander Andrea tyler asked. “I am detecting intermittent readings . it goes in and out. “Lt.sotril said. ” it is getting closer. ” lt. Aderson said. “Shields up. We are about to be attacked. ” commander Tyler a half human half rygelian said.
End of part two.
Rygelian are mentioned in star trek but did not appear until star trek enterprise .
Andrea Tyler was a character I created for Cassandra series. Sotril appeared in first the universe series.
Khas was the klingon advisor who aided mabb on the planet cappella in “Friday’s child” his name was nit given on screen but appeared in the end credits.
Previusly on star trek the universe.
The universe is under attack. In a remote area of the klingon empire a large object called a mass started to absorb everything in it’s path.
The mass had also been detected in the romulan empire. While attempts to stop it have appeared to hault the mass but it only delayed it.
The federation had been forced to partner with both governments. The enterprise rescued two klingon scientist. On star fleet orders,the enterprise crossed into romulan space.
While discussing what to do,a new mass is created. The mass caused massive turbalence. The enterprise and the other ships struggle to servive.
And now the continuation
“On earth,in the ancient days what they call before the common area in a country called Greece a philosopher came up with a unique theory on the galaxy. Plotinous theorized that the whole galaxy was a part of a creature called nues. When someone died it returned to nues. ”
“All over the galaxy there have been multiple theories about the galaxy. Some are similar to the plotinous theory.”
“While the mass that is currently wreaking havok all over the galaxy is probably not the nues plotinous described but they do have similarities.”
“While the mass appears to be from another dimension . that is speculation. How did it get hear. How do we stop it from speeding.are the tremors and reports of psicotic behavior related to the mass.are they all part of a bigger problem.is the universe in danger?”
The mass continued to head for the ships. “Increase to maximum warp. “Mia ordered . “I’m going as fast I can mam!”Gary Mitchell said. The entweprise bridge started to crackle. Several stations caught on fire. Lt. Leslie and several other officers put out the fire.
The enterprise continued to try to evade. “The romulan flagship is too close. I believe they may fall victim to the mass. “Spock reported.
“We have to detonate a proton burst. We are the closest !”Kirk said. “Detonating a weapon inside romulan space. This could be misinterpreted. ” yeoman Smith commented.
Mis was nervous about having Kirk on the bridge. He had more experience then her. She was in command until commander Norris returned.
The proton burst was a temporary solution but it might buy the fleet time to get away. The partnership was tenuous.hours earlier the two sides were in a cold war of sorts.they could not risk this partnership crumbling apart.
Mia considered her options. While she hated siding with Kirk but he was probably right at least on this.
“Mr. Spock generate the protest burst!”mia ordered. Spock acknowledged the order and got right to work.
The ship was struggling to stay afloat. M’len stayed calm. His trusted aid an aging centurion knew the truth. He was in a sate of panic. Who would not be.
His crew were doing all that they could.so far the vessel has managed to elude the mass. Right now absorption seemed inevetible.
On the enterprise,Spock and those helping him had completed the process. “Ready captain!”Spock announced.”do it!”mia ordered. Spock initiated the proton burst. The bust struck the mass. The shock wave hit the warship.
“Intercept the preditor!” mia ordered. Gary and Lee plotted an intercept course for the I.r.v preditor. The ship got close to the flagship.
“There warp core is about to go critical!”Spock reported. Kirk was really woried. Carol was on that ship. He wanted her to be ok.he needed her to be ok. Despite his reputation as a player he had changed. He loved Carol. Sadly he only realized at This moment.
“Are we in transporter range?” mia asked. “Yes we are! ” kelso said. “Have all transporters beam as many of those people as we can. We pull out all the stops !” mia ordered.
Kyile and other transporter technicians got to work. They beemed the romulan crews on bored the enterprise.
Kyile and Fisher started almost continues beam out.Dr. piper,nurse chapel and the med team stood by as the romulan crew were transported on bored.
As the Enterprise beemed out the crew of the flagship ,the Rihansu engineering crew tried to hold the warp core together long enough for the crew to evacuate.
On the enterprise, during the third wave of transports, commander Norris and Carol was amoung the transports. Norris was on a stretcher. Piper and cheple went over to him. The team moved out. More were beemed up.
M’len waited . he ordered Dr. Kalera to beam up to the enterprise.”commander you have to go now. “Centurian said. He was reluctant to leave but knew that his friend was right.
“The warp core is going critical!”Spock reported. “Get us out of hear” mia ordered. The enterprise went to warp. The Rihansu warship exploded.
While mia was concerned about commander Morris and m’len Kirk was concerned about Carol.
The enterprise finally got clear of the shock wave. “Captain Mr. Kyile reports that among the survivors are our team and the commander and the head scientist.there is also a tholien who servived Commander Norris is comatose but stable. “The klingon com officer said.
“Permission to leave the bridge!” Kirk said. Mia considered saying “by all means . get out of my hair” but she did not. She gave her permission.
She knew that this was not over.the threat was bigger then it had bean. It might be getting worse.
End of part one.
M’len is the romulan commander from “ballence of terror” . his name was never given. The name m’len comes from the myriad universe novella “a less perfect union” the name is a play on the name of the actor mark Leonard who also played sarek.
Lt .bolt told miss mccomic to make herself at home. She did not mean hover over her on the bridge.the bridge was cramped as it were. It was worse with Addison.Addison was a star fleet officer even commanded a star ship before a nervous breakdown.this was like old home day for her. She was fine with that not on her bridge.
“Mia we are nearing the task force.”the Orion halak reported.”take us out of warp.”mia ordered. “Is that the enterprise? She looks damaged!”Addison observed.”she was involved in a battle with ships loyal to the one true path. “The lt said. “Even after a beating she is stil a force to be reckoned with!”the Orion said. “Piloting the Athena is not halak’s day job. He is the chief enginer of the enterprise!”mis said.
“Now everything makes sense. ” Addison said. “Signal from enterprise ,miss mccomic may bored at her leisure.”the com officer said. “Miss?”Addison said.”your not in star fleet any more!”Liz said.”I know that !”Addison said.
“So what is your relationship with Dr.obk?”yeoman Smith asked. Everyone wanted to know but no one dared to ask but the yeoman. “We were married. Unfortunately It did not last long. She disliked the Klingon expansion policy but when the war begin she returned to the empire. She helped her people wage war on us. ” lt. Commander Aaron jeshop said.
“Do I detect some bitterness in your voice commander?”Dr. Mark pipper asked. “Mayby a little!”he said.
“Look jess when Dr. Obj comes on bored. I would like her to be fashonibly late for the briefing.until after mis mccomic has given her report!”commander Ben Norris said.”understood !”jes said.
They neared the transporter room. The door opened. The team entered the transporter room. “Sir! They are ready to come on bored!”lt. Kyile the officer at the transporter controls informed the commander.”energize Mr. Kyile!” commander Norris ordered.
The officer activated the control. The transporter both powered up.a series of particle was transformed into human form.
“Addison mccomic I am commander Ben Norris acting commanding officer. “He said.
“What happened to your predasesor?”Addison asked. “Captain Conklin was killed in a battle with o.t.p. star fleet has yet to name an official replacement!”Norris said. “I see. Are you in The running?”she asked.”I am not sure.I don’t keep up with such things!”he commented
“I would like to get your report if your ready!”Norris said. “You bet.no time like the present. “Addison said.
At the table was the acting captain, Dr. Piper,lt commander halak ,security chief gioto,lt.bolt,science officer Spock and dahner. Addison began her brefing. “During my time in star fleet actually while I commanded the enterprise we were trailing an Orion convoy.they claim to be part of an effort to colonize a planet in the prosser sector. We believed they were shipping weapons on. Bahath of the anipivnoids. “She said.
“I cannot get a scan. We are being blocked. “Science officer said. “Why am I not surprised?”Addison commented. She ordered the ship to remain on course for the convoy.
The lead ship fired on a nearby nebula.the nabula hit the enterprise.
The ship was hit. Addison was knocked unconscious. “While I was knocked out,I saw things. Things I did not quite understand.some I still do not understand!”Addison said.
She saw space. She saw the galaxy known to the federation. She saw world’s she recognized.she saw earth,Vulcan .andor and teller.she then saw multiple other world’s many that were hostile to the federation. Then she saw a smal dot. She felt compelled to it. She ran to it.
She ran inside to the object. She saw another realm perhaps. “It was the mass. Perhaps another dimension. Mayby it is home realm of the mass. Maybe the mass. I don’t know. I was in touch with it. Some how I was cut off. I could not function after.you know the rest.”she said.
“Were you in contact with the mass?”the security chief asked.”I haven’t the foggiest chief?”She responded. “It could have bean a promotion caused the intersection of the photons and the nebula. It could have the mass!”lt. Spock said.
“This event caused something that mimicked a psicoses or was !”Dr. Piper said. “Perhaps that is the nature of the mass .there are creature that cause psicoruc behavior in humanoids.”Spock said.
Addison did not like having her psyke analyzed. She had been a rising star in star fleet . compared with archer ,Hernandez ,garf,April komack and others. She hated being reminded that was over. She knew that that was true but did not like being hit over the head with constant reminders.
The door opened,Dr. Obk entered. Lt. Commander jeshop was following her. They both Sat down. “Uh doctor obk,good!”the acting captain said.
“We have looked over the sansor data you sent us regarding the mass. Would you explained what occurred from your perspective?”Spock asked.
“The mass appeared to have come out of no where. It originated from somewhere else. It began in a remote area. It expanded into Klingon space and into Rihansu space. “Obk said.
“There was no warning!”the security chief said. “There was a minor energy reeding before the dot appeared. About 20 seconds before. “Terisha said.
“Do you have any idea what this is?”the Orion engineer asked. “I cannot prove it but I suspect it is a life form.. I believe it is a plant. I cannot prove it. I do not beleve that this is an invasion in military terms.”Terisha said.
“You suspect it’s arival is an accident?”halak asked. “That is my suspicion commander!”she told the Orion. “If this is a fluke,there must have bean a catyilist!” Dr. Piper commented.
“If this is not a military issue,convincing the Klingon of that could be dificult. “The sicurity commander said. “That is an understatement commander. “The Klingon scientist commented.
” we are attempting to speak to The Klingon empire.they are not returning our hails. “Jeshop said. “I am not surprised. They can be stubborn !”she said. “I want to remain in the area. We will be scanning the area for any clue to solving this we hope that the empire will ask us for that.”Norris said. “We want to help the Klingon.”Dr. Piper said. “We want to help all species. We are hear to promote good repetitions with all races,even those we have been at of a with in the past!”Norris said. “I !”Piper said.
Norris then dismissed The meeting. The officers and other atendies got up from the dask. Some excited The conference room while orthers stayed and spoke.
“Excellently we detected a Human vessel near the x zone!”the military chief of staf to the chancellor. “Have we identified the vessel?”the chancellor asked. ” yes sir the vessel is registered to two private federation citizens. Doctor Carol Marcus and James Tiberius Kirk!” kor said over the com system.
“Kirk was once a star fleet officer!”Chang said .”this is a federation plot to destabilize the empire. A prelude to invasion!”the chief of staf said.
“We should not jump to conclusions excekentcy. There are greater concerns!”kor said. “All of the evidence suggest that this is a force of nature not an attack!” Dr. Tirek the head of Klingon science said.
“All warrior are cold warriors. Revenge is a dish best served cold. They have begun an attack. Cry havok and let slip the dogs of war!” Chang said.
“Prepare our forces for an attack on the federation. “The chancellor said. The head scientist was clearly agitated.so was kor.
Kor motioned his two top officers to come over to a corner. “Discus this with no one. ” the captain told the two officers. They both agreed. He explained his plan.
Private research vessel
” personnel log James t Kirk. After gaining valuable information on the mass,we are heading back to the federation. We had to take several detours. We have to avoid the Klingon. That has not been an easy task. ”
“Either they suspect us or they trying to blaim us Jim!”Gary said. “Klingons never change! ” Jim said .”there empire may be literily dying. Are they really going to play politics right now?”Dr. Carol Marcus said. “Can we really expect them to be anything but who they are?” Jim said. “Perhaps not. “Carol said.
The human vessel headed at high warp towards the border. The ship had to be careful. What is a quick trip will take longer. That had to be done.
The tholien scientist was escorted to the conference rooom. “Doctor.I am convinced that you were not behind the attacks on the empire. I was hoping to be able to look over your notes. ” Dr. Kalera said. “I would be happy to help you. I got very close to the mass. I believe I have gotten the closest. I believe that this is a symptom of a bigger problem. One that thretends the whole galaxy. “The tholien said.
Kolona entered the bridge. ” I would like to volunter my services. I am a skilled communications tech. “The Klingon said. “Take the com post it is..”Norris said. “I know where it is!”she said.
“Captain !”Spock said. Norris went over to the science station. “Report!” the acting captain ordered. “There has been quite a buildup along the neutral zone. I believe that they are preparing to attack. “Spock said.
“Why would they lunch am attack. It is a waste of resources. ” Dr. Piper said. ” there are rumors that a human vessel not affiliated with star fleet was near the mass!”gioto said.
“Do we know who the commander is?” Addison asked. “James Kirk!”gioto said .”Kirk I dated him at the academy.he was too much of a player!”Addison said. “I never met Kirk. I heared he was prety attractive. ” mis said. “Human males are repugnant. No offense commander!”kolona said. “It’s fine lt!”Norris said.
“Kirk was I’m star fleet. As I recal he left to form a research firm with doctor Carol Marcus. “Spock said. “So he ended up with Carol. I am not surprised. ” Addison said.
“If they find Kirk he is as good as dead! Kalona said. ” can’t we help him?”piper asked. “I can’t risk making thus worse. If he makes it to the border I Will help him. I can’t risk it. Besides if the mass continues it will threaten the federation. I have to focus on that. Kirk is on his own!”Norris said.
End of part five
The aid to the military chief of staf is indeed General Chang the shakespere qoating warrior played by Christopher plumber in star trek six. One of my favorite vilen from one of my favorite star trek movies.
Sicurity chief giito was played by Barry ruso. He appeared in “devil in the dark”
Yeoman Smith was played by Andrea Dorman.She appeared in “where no man has gone before”
Capital city ki bartan
Doctor kalera ridert was interested in fashion. Manny professionals in romulan society were more utuliterien. Not kalera. She enjoyed styling her hair. “Incoming message!”the computer said. “On screen!” she said
“Hello. I was just getting ready to head for the ministery!”she declared. “The preator wants you at the Senate complex. “Deputy minister kortal said .”what’s going on ?”she asked. “You will be briefed when you arrive. This is priority one . “her superior said
She had no idea what was going on.she knew that it was big.it had to be. It did not mean that necessarily. The current preator was a but of a drama queen. To him a paper cut was an intergalactic emergency. She had a feeling this was an actual emergency.
She Beemed to the Senate complex. She showed her I’d card to the porter. The porter let her in.she was escorted to the office of the preator.
The preator had his official office inside the Senate complex.he had the office he used in a nearby street.if he was using the official office,this must be a real emergency.
She saw the preator’s chief of staff. “Ahh good. I assume that you heard the rumors of the mass targeting the Klingon empire!”dravet said.
“Yes I have . it is true then?”she asked. “We are not certain but it is likely that it is. The mass has appeared on the edge of our space. “He said.
She Was briefed by the preator’s aid.then she was brought into the office of the man who although he was third in line he was the defacto leader of the empire. Her grandfather used to say that the preator was the only person who mattered.
She saw the preator. Preator jihall was a former admiral,diplomat and member of a prominent family. In the room was members of his staf.she saw the proconsul ,the defense minister,and the chairman of the telshiar.
“Preator I know what minister terikiv is thinking but the tholien is not involved. “She said. “You are blunt !”the intelligence chief said.
Terikiv was new as top spy chief.he was an unusual pick. He was not a field agent.he had been an anylist.he was a bureaucrat.what humans called a been counter. The rumor were that he had all the dirt and they decided rather them deal with him,they pernoted him and made him a senator.
“I don’t like idle chit chat chairman . the tholien vessel did not do this. While I don’t like them being hear. He was not involved.
“You expect me to believe that they were not involved?”the spy chief said. “The tholien are enigmatic .I suspect they probably know more then we do. I an not convinced that they caused all this. “She informed her superior.
“Where do you think it came from ?”senator terlerna asked. “I suspect perhaps from another dimensions. I wish to travail to the sight of the mass. “She said.
“We can arange that. “The Senate pro consul said. “Excellent. I will keep me informed.”the doctor informed him.
Dr. Elizabeth daner was informed of star fleet’s decision as well as her orders. She was a star fleet officer but was inactive. She had been reactivated. She did not want to face Addison. She trusted her and she failed her.
She asked the gourd to lower the force field. “Addison I assume you were informed?” Liz asked. “So I am not nuts?”addy asked. “Well I don’t know about that but your not delusional about the mass! Star fleet wants to debrief you. I get to be your chaperone !”she said.
“Bet you love that one?”Addison remarked. “You have no idea ! I Will muddle though somehow. “Liz said.”I Will try to go easy on you. Key word try.”Addison said .”ok. Look addy I’m sorry I did not believe you. “She said.
“Its ok. If I was in your place I would not have believed me. I understand. I really do. “She said .
Liz Noticed that her communicator was beeping. “This is Dr. Dahner !”she said. “This is the federation frigate Athena. Stand by to transport. ” the voice said. “Time to go addy!”she said.
In the cramped transporter room the two emerged. “Welcome to the Athena. I’m lt. Marea bolt. I will bring to the task force. “She said. “Your in star fleet. Last I knew you owned your own freighter. Star fleet was afraid you were involved in illegal smuggling?” Addison said. “Ok so I served time In tentulous. I was rebilitated and not harry I’d rehabilitated. I made a mistake. “She said.
“I am glad I was wrong. Star fleet hoped you would rejoin the service. I am glad you have.” Addison said .”sorry you have to go to the neutral zone in a scout ship but it Was all we could spare. “Bolt said. “It is fine!”Addison said.
Romulin bird of prey
“Now entering the x zone !” the pilot said. “Drop out of warp. “Kinera said. “We are at all stop!”the pilot said. “Begin scan !” kinera ordered.
“So far we are at a safe distance. That will not last. It is continuing to expand !”the science officer said.
“Sir ! I have something else. I have found the tholien ship. It has one occupant!” a seconds science officer reported.
“Pilot plot an intercept course. I want that ship in a tractor beam.”the doctor said.
The bird of prey went at high warp.it swooped down at the ship. The ship was trapped in the tractor beam. “We have the ships attention.”the doctor ordered.
The single occupant was Beemed to a decontamination chamber. The doctor arrived with several guards. “”Why have you captured me!”the creature said. “You activated that object. You are killing our space!”she remarked. “Mistaken you are !”the alien said.”you insist that it was not you?”karia asked. “I.. Did not do this!”the creature declared.”why were you hear?”a centurion asked.”I was hear to investigate the phynomina. “The tholien said.
Office of the commander
“The tholien embassy claims that doctor xhivek is on it’s on. “The proconsul emack said. “Do we believe him?”the doctor asked.”I don’t know. The tholien are always up to something. “The proconsul said. “Excellently if he or whatever Investigating this thing. It could provide invaluable research!”she commented.
“What are you suggesting?”the preator asked. “Lets compare notes with the tholien. As my farther said distrust but trust!”she said. “Are you really suggesting we partner with a tholien?”the defense minister asked. “If the doctor is not with the tholien government then it is an informal consultation. I want that sansor datta. I don’t think it will just give it to me!”kalera said.
“The telshiar has no objection as long as you are careful not to share classified information. The doctor is your responsibility!”the telshiar chairman. She agreed.
Near the x zone
A ship used a holowgrid to mask it’s signature.so far it had worked. The ship mantaned course for the zone.
“What?”a young female asked.”I can’t believe You talked me into this!”the man who seemed to be in charge said. “Come on Jim. You said you loved a challenge!”she said. “I did not quite mean sneaking into Klingon space. If we get too caught we get two choices,death or exile to aurora pentae. Awsome choices. “He said.
“I have a visual!” the science technicion said. “On screen!”both the women and man said. She apolozed. On the screen the mass was displayed.
“Oh my!”the young lady said. “Hold on ! Are we at a safe distance?”the man in charge yet. “For now. I would not stay hear for long!”the science tech said.
“Is it a life form?”she asked. “I cannot be sure. It does not appear to be artificially constructed. “The tech said
“If it is alive what is it’s purpose?”she asked. “Expansion it would seam. “The captain said. “Come on. Jim! what something does is not always what it is. “She declared. “I know that Carol!”he said.
“It is starting to expand again.we have to move to a safe distance!”the tech said. “Do it Lee!”he ordered. The ship moved out of the way. The vessel tried to get to a safe distance.
“It is trying to find a way around the protomatter !” the tech reported. “Jim! The rate of the expansion is growing. “Gary said. “We need to fall back more!”Lee said. “Verry well!”the captain ordered. The pilot moved the ship away at warp eight. The man in charge took it all in stride but the female was worried.
The ship kept on going. The mass was stil heading for them.”Jim I have an idea. I recommend an anti proton burst!”Carol said.”do you realize how much energy that will requure? “Gary said. “I don’t see any other choice Mitch!”she said. “Do it!”Jim said.
The ship tried to keep away as long as possible. Carol and Gary got to work on the burst.
When it was ready the ship emitted the burst .the the burst hit the mass. The burst stoped the mass. The ship moved away. The burst like the proto matter was only a temporary solution. The threat still was present.
End of chapter four
According to the novels,the preator is third in line but first in importance. The next in line is the proconsul. The preator was first mentioned in “balience of terror” the title was mentioned again almost thirty years later in ds9 and again in star trek nemesis.
“Commadore’s log,sometimes in space,you go from one from one crises to another. The hendrini microbe has been neutralized. Now we are facing another threat ,this time from the romulins. “Wesley said.
“We are now in weapons range !”the pilot reported. “Once we are in weapons range order our ships to break in and attack.let’s take those ships out!”the female commander ordered.
The Bird of preys backed off. The vessels went for the cylinders. “They are trying To go for the cylinder!”Tim Mathews reported. “Stay on um!”Wesley ordered.
The enterprise and the other ships tried to block the enemy ships from getting to the quarantine pods. Ryian fired phasers and photon torpedoes hit the closest rihansu ships.
The Lexington followed suit and hit another ship. The rest of the fleet did the same.
“They really care about those cylinders!”the pilot commented.”humans care about every life. They would gladly risk one hundred lives to save one. I don’t get this but it how they do thing’s. It will be there downfall. “The commander declared.
A few minutes before the battle,Addison had returned to the ship. Addison watched the battle from her quarters. She decided she could not sit on the side lines.maybe mark had not cleared her for duty but she was still the captain. She put on her uniform and left the quarters. The door closed behind her.
The enterprise created a wall between the romulsn vessel and the cylinder. The enterprise fired phasers and photon torpedoes at The enemy vessels.
The romulan vessels returned fire on the enterprise. “Shields holding!”dassale said. The federation vessels continued to pound on the enemy ships .
The turbo lift opened,Addison entered Waring the ditty uniform. The crew was surprised to see her. She went over to the command chair. “Get out of my chair Bob!” Addison told the Commodore.
The commadore smiled and got up from the command chair. “Of course Addison! Captain !”he said. Addison smiled and sat down. “Fire a warning schot across the bow of the cylinder!”Addison ordered. “Sir?”dassale asked. “Trust me Vincent! Do it!”she said.
The enterprise fired on the cylinder. The ship intentionally missed the target. “They fired on there own vehicle !”the weapons officer observed. “Its a message from there captain.he is telling us that he is willing to destroy there own craft in order to deny us a victory.”charvineck said.
“You think that they will really do it? This is a bluf it has to be?” tal commented. “Don’t be so sure tall! I am not. These humans are cagy! They are iratic,unpredictable !”the commander said.
The romulan command ship fired on the enterprise. The enterprise hit back on the vessel. The turbo lift opened, sotril and doctor dahner entered the bridge.
The Vulcan female went to the science station. Tim turned around and saw the first officer,science officer and his wife. “I suppose you want your station back?”Tim asked.”in fact I do!”she said. “Very well dear!”he said. He got up. She Sat down.
She scanned the ship and seroundings. “Adison I have an idea!”the Vulcan said. “I am not surprised. What do you got ?”Addison asked.
Sotril informed the captain of her plan. Addison gave the go ahead.the enterprise emitted a pulse that weekoned the enemy shield. The other ships fired with conventional weapons.
The enterprise fired a full voley of phasers on the command ship. The command ship was hit. “We are being hailed!”the com officer. “On screen!”the commander ordered.
“Commander! I don’t give up! I don’t yield. I don’t surrender. I see you as similar. You might be my counterpart in the empire. Know that with the same energy you will use to overpower me,I will use that energy to stop you.” Addison said.
The enterprise and the orther ships continued to pound the enemy. They used every weapon they had. This was a demonstration by Addison not just of the power but the determination to fight them. The federation ships kept going. They kept firering.
There was a series of exchanges between the two sides.the battle got more and more fierce. The federation fleet started to gain the uper hand.
The commander began to see that this was not the day. She did not have the promise of reinforcements. This would only end badly. “Withdraw!”the commander ordered.
“Commander?”the pilot asked.”do it. Know this star fleet commander,this is not over.we will meet again ! I won’t be as easy to overcome!”the commander declared.
“The vessels are backing off. ” the Vulcan science officer reported. “Do we peruse?”dassale asked.”negative. We need to luck our own wounds besides I think they learned there lesson for now. “Adiison said.
Liz went over to helm officer dassale. “Hello Liz!”dassale Said nervously. “I heard you wanted to leave me behind. ” she asked him. “You heard about that. “He said. “Yes I did “she said .”you have to consider the context . “he said .”I understand !”she Said. Then she walked off.
“Captains log the surgeon general’s office has certified the enterprise and crew clear of the microbe. The enterprise has been certified ready for duty. We are preparing to move out. ”
Qurters of Addison mcomic
Adison and Ryan were in bed. It had been strange between the two sense her memory was erased. They were roommate more them a married couple.
“I am going to sleep in the living room.”Addison said. “Ok!”Ryan said.she got up to leave.”I love you ad!”Ryan said.”yea!”was all she said in response. The door closed.
This ended a bit on a sad note.I do love happy endings but this is not really the end. Star trek the universe is in many ways a story arc like Babylon five or deep space 9.although unlike b5 I have written the ending yet nor do u know where it us heading although I have a few ideas.I do want to explore anipovnouds Khan and Alison. 50 and 6o’s tv had a story warped up by the end of the hour. Sometimes maker events were ignored in future instalments or even contradicted. Ronald d more Said that every action has consequences. I want to explore those consequences.
