“Captain’s log,the task force successfuly shut down methusilah and imobilized most of kahn’s forces. Kahn is atempting to evade us. We are doing all we can to catch up with them. ”
“They have gone passed maximum warp!”daystrom said.”how is that possible ? Oh yea methusilah. No ofense doc but your invention is really started to iretate me!”gioto said.
“I assume the command ship is using your prototype. Then the two others are using mini divises he built. “Addison said.”a sound hypothosis!”sotril said.
“They are holding at warp 9.2,i doubt they can go any faster. “Kyile said. “Lets hope not! “Addison said.
The enterprise and three orther ships headed for the three rougue ships.
“Bridge to engineering !”Addison said. “Addy i can’t push the warp engine beyond maximum warp. “Pitcarn said.”i thought you were a mericle worker!”she said. “Within reason!”pitcarin said.
“We can’t jam the warp drive?” Smith asked. “Not from this distence!” Kyile said. “I am not leting kahn or Alison get away. Not this time! “Addison said.
” What if we beamed a photon torpedo designed to hit methiselah! We could force the ship out of warp! “Gioto said. “You can’t predict where the torpedo will materialize or the precise location of the constilation. It is a schot in the dark!” Kyile said.
“Is there any chance of this working ?”Addison said. “Its fairly slim but there is a chance!”gioto said. ” Sotril your usually the vioce of reason,what sayeth you?”Addison asked.
“It does have a chance of success. It is a slim chance. I believe it could work!”sotril said.
“Gioto,kyile get on it !”Addison ordered. The two agreed. They left the bridge entered the turbo lift. The turbo lift door closed.
Kyle,gioto and a security and engineering team prepared a photon torpedo. “Takigawa do you have a lock on the torpedo ?”gioto asked. “Got it commander!”the chief said. “Enerzize! Hear goes nothing !”the security chief said. The transporter activated the transpoter beam. The torpedo was beamed away.
The torpedo was beamed from a long distence. The torpedo emerged near the constilation. The torpedo detonated.
The torpedo struck the constilation. The wake hit the constitution class vesel. The vessel was forced to reduce speed.
“The constilation is at warp 8.2!”sotril reported. “Mutch better! Match course and speed !”the captain ordered. Irina and dassale ploted the course.
The enterprise and the task force caught up to the ship. The enterprise fired as soon as it was in wepons range.
The enterprise lunched a photon torpedo right at the area where methiselah was. The device was weekond. The enterprise unleashed a volley of phasers at the area.
“Methisulah is off line!”joiquin said. “No!!!”khan said. The rougue ships hit back on the starfleet ships. Several decks were hit.
“We need to deplete there shields !”Addison said. Addison got up from the command chair. “Sotril take over!”Addison said. “Addy! What are you doing ?”liz said. “I will explain later!”Addison said. “Oh gosh!”liz said. Addison left the bridge.
Addison ran to an airlock. She put on an e.v.a suit. She took some spacial charges and other devices. She went to the airlock. “Now we end this !”Addison said. She closed the airlock. She depreserized the air lock. Then she opened the door. She headed out.
She activated the thusters. She neared the constilation. She found an airlock. She was able to pry open the door. She ganed acess to the ship and went inside.
She had the phaser rifle ready. She moved out. She ran to the a shield generator. She fired first at an augment. She stunes him. She acted in a stelth mannor.
She found a wall near the shield grid. “Mat is going to kill me!”she said. She took out a charge. She set it up. She got out of the way. She then presed the detonate button. The charge exploded and spread.
“Our shields are down! “McPherson reported. ” We have been borded!”joiquin anonced.” Addison ! Abandon ship! We will regroup. This is not over! We have started over before and we will again! “Khan declared. ” Where are you going?”joiquin asked. “To settle an old score!”khan said. He left the bridge. The turbo lift closed.
The crew began to evacuate. The loyal task force began to send bording party.
Addison moved around. She wanted to find Alison. She walked into a coridor.she saw kahn. “We meat again! “He said.”you have a second chance, you ruined it! You could have contributed in a positive way. “She said.
“I am a conquer. I canot do anything . Could Alexander farm,could napoleon be a Sheppard? Could colnel green be an engineering. War is my blood,my veins ! Struggle defines me!”he said.
“It enslaves you! You could have been so much more!” Addison said. “I have chosen my path! It is my road. ” He said.
He raised his phaser. She raised hers. He threw his phaser down the room. She thews her. They ran towards each orther. He tried to tackle her. She pushed him away.
“I am not a little girl! I can hold my own!”she said. They roled around on the floor of the coridor. She deflected a punch from kahn. She struck kahn.
Suddenly gioto and a security team neared kahn and Addison. “Parting is sutch sweet sorrow. You are granted a repreve ! It won’t last long. We will meat again ! “Kahn asured her.
“Stand down kahn!”gioto said “not today!”he said. He grabed Addison. “Back off!”khan said. Addison told him to do it. He led her to an area near an esape pod. “Until next time!”he said. He shoved her across the room. He then ran into the pod.
Gioto and his team ran to her. “You ok?”he asked. “I’m fine! Continue to sicure the ship! “She ordered. “Where are you going ?”giito asked. “Unfinished business !”she said.
Alison headed for one of the pods. “Stop right there!”Addison said. “I figured you would be showing up!”Alison said. “Like your look. Much better then the old!’Addison said. “It changes nothing addy!”she said. “Aly cat it did not have to be this way!”Addison said.
“I won’t let you get away. Your too dangerous! Unpredictable ! Irational! “She said. She headed for the pod.
Addison tackled her. The two wrestled. Alison struck Addison. Addison fought back. Alison was stuned. Addison turned and saw Ryan. “You could have a little sooner !”she said. They huged.
“Captain’s log,the crew of the ships seized by kahn have been located. This includes the starship commanders including commadore decker. While with a few aceptions most of kahns people esaped but a few have been captured including zoey one of his inner circle. ”
“For now the crises is over. Kahn and his people have lost the ships they seized. The prototype of methuselah has been destroyed. The mini devices have terned over to doctor daystrom. Things hopfuly will be getting back to normal !”
“Sory about the damage mat!”addy said. “Could not be prevented. I am just glad to have my ship back. We are going to be putting in for repairs at star base 11. I hope to have the constilation space bound as soon as posible. “Decker said. “I’m sure you will!”Addison said.
“I am ending the methiselah project at least for now. I never consider that it could be weponized. I never thought to include anti theft protical. I don’t want to deal with it. At least for now!”daystrom said. “Understandible!”Addison said. “So what wil enterprise do now?”Wesley asked. “We are going to transport mis crenic back to elba. Then not sure. Space is the limit i gues!”Addison said. “Yes it seams it is!”decker said.
“All decks stand ready!”yeoman smith said. “Very good! You have the course laid in irina!” Addison asked. “I do indeed!”irina said. “Engage dassale!”she said. “On course!”he said. The ship was off.
“Audry,send the specs for the irina,kyile fire wall to the federation ships we know are stil loyal to the fleet. Then have them head for kaleb sector. We will stage at kaleb four. “Addison said.
“Sending now captain !”lt. Palmer said. “Set course for kaleb four dassale!” Addison ordered. “You got it!” Dasale said. He layed in the course. The ship was off.
“I like this idea! I like your plan.i am inclined to go along with your plan. I would like a favor!”the andorian ilsik said.
“Alright , what is it?” Kahn asked.”i want to govern andoria. I want to be given control of andoria under you of course. “Ilsik said.”i think we can work something out. You would be an excellent vice roy,emparor of andoria!”kahn said. He smiled.
After a prolonged conversation the x inmates signed on to his plan. They pledged loyalty to kahn. Then the meating was ajurned. Every one got up from the desk. They began to disperse.
Alison went over to kahn. “I had time to observe ilsik. Don’t turn your back on him for a second !” Alison said. “I agree. I had that feeling myself. I will do just that!”he informed her. She nodded.
“Several ships are on there way to the randevez point including the Lexington !”lt. Palmer said.
“The Lexington ! Commadore Wesley’s ship! “Addison said. “Is there a problem ?”liz asked. “No i gues i should have expected it. “Addison said.
“It is a good thing is it not? We should have the best against kahn!”yeoman smith said. “Yes your right!” Addison reaplied. Addison tried to contain her aprehension but she did feel that way. Many picked up on it. Some did not.
Alison underwent reconstructive sergery using a methoud developed by a scientist using eugenics. She wanted her apearence restored. She had been very atractive by human standerds. That was before her acident. Now she would have it back.
“Did it work?”Alison asked as she woke up. A nurse got a mirror. She looked at it. She started to cry. It was her. The her she remembered. She was very pleased.
The door opened,jouquin entered. He was taken aback by her new apearence. He could never get pass the plasma scars. He believed in the neq order,there should be no imperfections. He was glad she decided to go though the alterations. “Mis crenic! Kahn wishes you to join him for diner!”he said. “I would love to!” She said. “Excellent i will let him know!”jouquin said.
“Captain’s log,the ships not efected by the device designed to take over any ship,are ariving at the randavez site. I am sheduling a meating of the starship commanders to discus the mission specifics. I have requested a private meating with the commander of the Lexington. The other commanders have the rank of captain but bob Wesley is a commadore and outranks me. I will have to tread lightly but be determined!”
“Hello bob. Cookies they are chocolate chip?”Addison asked. He took one. “This is delicious !”he said. “I baked them myself !”she said.
“I see. You are a bit of a conundrum Addison ! “Wesley said.”moi?”she asked. He laughed. “You were captain of phaser rifle team at the academy. You played on pherise square scraid. You have a bit of a tom boy persona yet you seam to be girlie as well. You ware dress uniform not pants. Your rumored to have a tedy bear colection as well!” Wesley said.
Addison laughed. “I am dynamic !”she said. “So what is the nature of this chat?”Wesley asked. “Well! Bob it was the enterprise that sucesfully stoped kahn’s initial gambit. The enterprise imobolized the clark’s sumit! The enterprise crew came up with the fire wall. The enterprise should head up the task force. I should command the task force!”she said.
“Your trying to butter me up. “Bob said. “Bob the isues are too big for a turf war within the fleet. I should command. “Addison said. “Is this personal. Against kahn! Against Alison ?”Wesley said. “Have you ever known me not to be professional bob?”she asked. “No i have not. “Wesley said. “I know how to beat kahn! I understand how he thinks. I know his weakness. Kahn has to be stopped. We are running out of time!” Addison said.
Commadore Wesley said. “I am not used to playing second fidle.your right. You should command the task force. I will defer to you.”he said.
“Thank you. This is important to me. I have to do this!”she said.”i believe you will suceed!”Wesley said.
She got dresed waring a ball gowan. She was escorted to kahn’s qurters. “You look very beutiful!”kahn said. “Thank you khan!”she said. He invited her to sit.
“So when earth is conquered,where will your capital be?” She asked. “I have not decided. I have given it a lot of thought. I am partial to new dehli or Punjab but sanfrancisco or paris are the most logical !”he said.”you could have operationl capital in paris and sanfrancisco. New dehli could be a cerimonial capital. ” Khan said.
“I like it. I must confes i don’t know about this transporter thing.McPherson asures me its safe. I stil don’t know!”he said. “I asure you,you have nothing to wory about! ” Alison said.
“We are going to create a better world a better universe. “Khan said. “I believe your the man to do it! “She said.
“I believe that the forces of conformity will soon trying to challenge us. I am ready to meat that challenge !”khan said. ” As am i ! “She said.
“I know you are!”he said. “I preceve that captain mccomic and you have a history .”he said.”you are quite perceptive kahn. She was my best friend. She sacrificed me to save her own skin. While i sufered in agony,she became a starship captain. She got maried had kids. All the things i wanted to do. She never wanted a family. Hear she is she has it all and i have nothing ! I have not forgiven her for that. Perhaps i should !”she said.
“The scales will be weighed. For opress us will answer for there deads. Have you read plato’s republic?”he asked . “No but i am familar with its content. I asumed that you want to set up a society run by the elete. “Alison said.
“I was made to rule. First by breading then by traning. I believe that it is my destiny. What do you see as your destiny Alison ?”he asked.
“I don’t think that i have one. Before the acident,i wanted to go on advantures,see the universe,meat interesting people,now i don’t know. Beyond revenge on Addison ,i am not sure i have any goals. “Alison said.
“You have so much potential Alison. If i am to be a prince once again,you should bea princes!” Kahn said. “I have not felt that way in a long time. “Alison said. “It is time for that to change. “Kahn said.
“You believe you can bring down the federation. You believe that you can impose your kind of order on the galaxy ?” She asked. “It won’t be easy. Maintaning it may be harder then conqering I welcome the struggle. I love a challenge !” He said. “You are a remarkable man!”she said. “You are remarkable as well!” He said.she was not so sure.
“All ships are standing by at your command!” Lt. Palmer reported. “Order all ships to leave orbit! “Addison ordered. The com officer sent the order. The ships in the vanguard left orbit of the planet. “All vesel have left orbit ! ” sotril reported.”have you located the ships circumvented by kahn?”Addison asked. “I have. I have sent the coordinates to lt. Palmer and mr. Dassale. “Sotril said. Both palmer and dasale anounced that they had the coordinates. On Addison’s orders,the coordinents were sent to the rest of the fleet. Then dasale set course. The fleet headed for the rougue fleet.
“Excellentcy! A star fleet task force is heading straght for us!”jouquin reported. ” plot an intercept course for them. I look foward to this engagement!”kahn declared. The two fleets headed towards eachorther.
“The rougue fleet is heading right for us.”sotril reported. ” they know that we are coming. “liz said. “Good! We won’t go qietly. We won’t just give up! “Addison said.
The fleet finally neared eachorther. The ships loyal to kahn fired first. Addison gave the clearence to return fire.
Kahn was thriled. Sence he woke up from cyro sleep ,he earned to conquer once again. He needed a perpose again. Now he had it. He hada struggle ,a cause. He could not be hapier.
The enterprise was hit by the uss constilation. The shields held together. The enterprise returned fire on the constilation. Then uss ajax a frigate conductes a dive bomb raid on the enterprise.
The enterprise was unable to return fire on the ajax. It was too munerable. The ship was too good.
“Addison ! Many of the ships are runing on a skeliton crew or unmaned!”kyle reported. “They must be linked to the constilation!” Marvic said. “Methuselah! They must be using methiselah!” Daystrom commented. “Can you find a way to jam the link?” Addison asked. “Working on it!”gioto said.
The battle so far was a stalemate.neither side had gained any ground. Both sides were holding there own.
Those not esential to the battle worked on finding a way to jam the signal. Gioto was a security expert. He was also a weapons expert. He knew security system. Kyile was an expert on engines,transporters and helm. He looked at this from the stand point of an engineering stand point. Dr. Daystrom and marvic looked at it from a technical stand point.
So far the ajak was a formidable advasary. It had made life for the star fleet very uncomfortable. The vessel did not have a crew. It ran totally on autimation.
The crew believed they had found a way to jam the methuselah. They sent it. Suddenly the ships with automated crew stoped being conbative. Ships with a small contigent strugaled to keep going.
“The jaming davice is holding!” Sotril reported. “Mantain fire!”Addison ordered. The enterprise fired on uss exciter. The exciter fired back.
The star fleet had no idea of what ships were automated or manned. The battle was stil in full swing.
“Get the fleet back!”khan incisted. “I am trying ‘”joiquin said. “Try harder dawn you!”khan declared.
The uss pokahuntas had a skelitan crew. The uss lexington was able to take out there shields. The pokahuntas started to retreat.
“The pokahuntas is in retreat!” McPherson said. “How dare they! Target the pokahuntas! Fire!”kahn said. The bridge crew was horified. They followed the order. The ship exploded.
“Kahn meens business !”liz said. “Indeed he does!” Addison said. The enterprise was hit. It was the exciter. The enterprise fired back.
The uss richmond,a ship under the command of a khan aly was nutrilized. The ship lost its shields and weapons. The ship tried to colide with the uss triconderago. The ship was destroyed by uss Belgrade.
Khan’s fleet was faling apart. Some were destroyed. Some ships surendered. “Only three vessels remain active !”McPherson said. “I will not give up! We will withdrawl. Atempt to regroup!” Kahn said.
“They are atempting to withdrawl!”sotril said. “Oh no you don’t. Your not leaving without our ships and crew! This ends now. Persue those ships. “Addison ordered.
End of part six
“Now entering elba system !”irina reported. “I have found the clarks sumit!” Mathews at science anounced. “Plot an intercept irina!”sotril ordered.
Irina set the intercept course. Then lt. Dassale activated the engines. “We are heading right for them captain!”dasale reported.
“I am detecting the use of methuselah!”dr. Daystrom said.”i figured he would. He may be archaic but never obsilete!”dr. Danner said. “Indeed!”sotril responded. “The computer is set to constently scan for trouble. I am monitoring personaly as well!”kyile said.
“Shields up! Stand by weapons !”sotril ordered. “Weapons ready! “Dasale said. The enterprise went at high warp heading for the clarks sumit.
“The enterprise has set course straght for us!” Zoey anounced. “Excellent! I have been looking forward to this for a long time! Head for that ship! It is now time for battle!”Khan declared. The two ship headed towards eachorther.
“I believe i can filter out homo superiors from normal humans. I have located normal humans!”Mathews reported.
“Now in weapons range!”McPherson reported. “Open fire!”khan ordered. The clarks sumit fired multiple phasers blast on the enterprise. Multiple sections of the enterprise.
“Damage reports coming in on all decks! ” palmer reported. “Return fire! “Sotril ordered. The enterprise fired on the vessel.
“Target the area near the brig. Lets complicate things for mr. Kahn!”sotril ordered. The enterprise fired on the brig. The brig was hit. The force field was deactivated.
“I think that that is our sign !”the doctor declared. “I definitely agree !”Hadley said. The two ran out of the cell.
One of kahn’s folowers arived.he brandished a weapon. Hadley went for the man. The doctor slamed into the man. He was knocked unconscious.
“I thought you were a doctor not a camando !”Hadley commented. “Survival instinct mr. Hadley !” The doctor said.
As soon as Hadley saw hostiles,he fired. He stuned two hostiles.the two kept moving.
“I can’t acess there system ! “Joiquin anounced. “They must have designed some kind of firw wall!”McPherson said. “Very smart of them! They wil stil lose!”kahn proclaimed.
“They are atempting to get into our system!”kyile said. “Stay on it l.t!”sotril ordered the engineer monitoring the fire wall. “So far it is holding. I will make sure it keep that way!”kyile said. “Keep a close eye!”sotril ordered. Kyile agreed.
“I have the crew on line!”lt. Palmer reported. “On speakers!”sotril ordered. “Hello!”Hadley said. “This is commander sotril on the enterprise! We need your help. “Sotril said. “We will be there !”Hadley said.
The battle waged on between the two ships. Hadley and the doctor went though the coridor. They hit anything that moved. The tactic seamed to be working. They had a mission and it was an inportent one. It had to work. Every thing depended on it.
They tried to dodge attack. They got to an area hear the engineering section. Hadley put the phaser on overload. He threw it. They ran as fast as they could. They rushed to get out of the fray.
The phaser exploded near the engines. The engines were not destroyed but did a lot of damage.
The two got away from the blast site. They were beamed away by enterprise transporter chief takigawa. They were beamed on to the enterprise.
“the engines will go critical !”jouquin said. “Begin evacuations! I have some suprises up my sleave!”Khan declared.
The bridge crew started to leave the bridge. Kahn wanted the withdrawl to be as orderly and syimtematic as possible.
“The ocupants of the vesssel are abandoning ship! “Mathews said. “Beam as many as we can but keep our distence!”sotril said.
Kahn and most of the crew made it to esape pods. Orthers were beamed on to the enterprise.
The engines exploded.soon the entire vessel exploded with it. Kahn and his alies were able to use the distraction to get away.
“Starship log, commander sotril in command of the enterprise has gone to elba 2. We have aprehended several of kahn’s alies but not kahn himself. I suspect that kahn is not finished.
Chief takigewa activated the transporter beam. The transporter powered up. The silohoute began to take a more solid form. It became humanoid.the fugure became human. It was reveled to be captain Addison mccomic.
“Welcome back Addison !”sotril said. “Its good to be back. Good work out there!”Addison said.”thank you!”sotril said. ” Why did kahn come to elba?”she asked. “He wanted to get alies among the elba citizenry including Alison !”Addison said.”I see!” Sotril said.
“This is not over. Not at all! Kahn will keep going. I suspect he will soon take it up a notch. This will be a long struggle but i intend to win this!”Addison declared.
“Commadores log, my task foce is stil without power. All atempts to restore crucial power has failed. We are not giving up. ”
A crewman started to get ill. Then several orthers got ill as well. In a short order,the entie bridge crew were wrendered unconscious.
There were similar events all over the constilation. The same thing happened thoughout the task force.
On the bridge of the constilation,there was multiple transports. This included Alison and kahn. Kahn was very pleased with what had happened.
“Get the crew into satus! ” kahn said. “Well played kahn!”Alison said. Kahn smiled. ” This is only the beginning. Soon my new order will be a reality!”kahn declared.
“We believe that this was a member of kahn’s iner circle! Zoey holister! “Lt. Commander gioto said. “I SEE! “Addison said.
Addison went over to the holding cell.
“I know you think you won but you have not. ” Zoey said. “I am not nieve. I know that this is not over. I know he won’t give up. Neither will i !” Addison said.
“How are the patcients?”Addison asked. “Cranky! One is a fellow doctor !”piper said. “I am first officer Hadley. “The exo said. “I am doctor leonard mccoy !”the doctor said. “Captain! Captain merek was under mind control. I hope the file on him will reflect that! ” Hadley said. “It will!”Addison said. “Thank you!” He said.
“Bridge to mccomic!”palmer said. She went over to a com pennel. “Go ahead!”addy said. ” your needed on the bridge !”palmer said.
“The task force has reganed full power ! They have not responded to hails. Star fleet command suspect that they have been coopted !” Palmer said. “Oh my!”liz said.
“I suspect they have modified methiselah to accomplish this! “Lary marvic said. “Get me star fleet command!” She said.
“You believe that kahn has seized control of the commadore’s task force?”admiral komack asked. ” I am certain of it. We need our ships to be modified. Mr. Kyile and mis galiunion have created a fire wall. I want to go after him!”Addison said. ” this could turn the federation into a battle zone!”komack said. ” IT may already be i am afraid !”the captain said. “Solve this quickly addy!” The admiral said. “Will do!” Addison said.
Kahn got several x inmates including an andorian. “I would like you all to Join me. I plan to keep the infrastructure of the federation in place. I intend to replace the federation with a new order headed by me! You can be a part of it!”kahn said. The people listened.
End of part five
The ship had done every thing it could think of to avoid detection. The crew all genetically augmentedy combined there colective skills to accomplish this task. The ship was able to dodge all ships and bases in order to make it to elba.
“We have cleared all obsticles until we arive at elba!”McPherson reported. ” Very good!”kahn said. “Elba is a psiciatric facility. It is hevily shielded. Most of the patcients are criminally insane!” Jouquin said. “Can you get us pass the shields ?”kahn asked. “Working on it now !”zoey said.
Zoey tried to hack into the security network. She had to do it without alerting the facility that was her plan.
On earth she had been a computir hacker. She did it for the thril. She had no ideology or aganda. It was just about the fun of it. She did not know that she was a genetic alteration. When she was put into foster care,her origens were carefully hiden.
She ended up in jail in ilinois. After completing her sentence,she was recruited by kahn. She was a key aset in his rise to power.
She hoped that she would be a key player in his hoped return to power. This was quite a challenge. She was happy to take up this challenge.
She refused to believe that she was washed up. She could thrive in this century. Her apearent age was early thirties. She was stil vibrent and would prove it.
She atempted to gain acess to the facilities shields. Things were not as hard as she feared it could be. She stil did have it. She was about to have it proven to others,her crew,her leader and to herself.
“There shields are down excellentcy!”zoey proudly anounced. “Well down !”kahn said.
“Orders?” The helm asked. The pilot was not confident in and of himself. He was very much a yes man.
“Take us to the administration complex!”kahn ordered. The pilot quickly complied. The vesel speaded to the command and control complex for the planet.
“Stand by all weapons !”kahn ordered. Jouquin got the weapons ready. “Turets standing by Excellentcy!”he reported. “Very good ! “Kahn said.
The ship came in to the planets sky. A planitary serface to space platform fired on the clark’s sumit. The sumit dodged the attack. The mistle detonated without impacting the civilian vessel. The vesel came about. The ship fired on the turets. The mistle was powered by smal versions of methusilah.
“Complex imobilized!”McPherson declared.” Take us to the command building !”kahn ordered. The ship headed to the command and control building.
While Addison was giving her adress,the room went into full panic. Addison sprung into action.she tried to clear out the room. Orthers also sprung into action.
The hearing room exploded. The room had already been clared out. There were no casulties from that strike. It was not over. There would be more!
The sumit hit another mistle shield platform found on another island. That platform was nutralized. The sumit then fired on an unmaned power station. The power was off line all over the planet. The entire planet was venerable.
Alison had been in her cell. The cell was a smal cubicle with a force field. She wore a blue jump suit. She was invited to atend the heating but declined to paticipate. She did not care. She felt the deck was stacked against her. To her all of this was a sham. She refused to be involved.
She was laying on the cot. She was barefoot. Suddenly the force field was deactivated. She saw other inmates run.
The gaurds were unable to restore order. She saw a transporter beam. She walked saw several people emerge. They apeared to be wairing some kind of uniform but one she did not recognize.
“Alison krenic! It seams we have a comon enemy! Addison !”kahn declared. “Who are you?”Alison asked. “I am kahn. I am about to create a new order. I want you to be a part of it and you can revenge on Addison at the same time!”kahn said.
“How do you so much about me?”she asked. “I know what i need to know miss krenic. Come on. This is your big chance!”kahn said. She thought over it quickly. “Fine! Lets do it!”she said. They had to duck phaser fire. Addison entered with gaurds. She had a phaser rifle in hand.
“Well well the two bigest thones in my side together !”Addison said. “You can’t posibly think you stop me Addison ! As we use to say in my century,i have all my bases covered “kahn said.
“You have a ship designed for non military scientific reserch. You can’t possably hope to take down the federation in an obsolete ship with a rag group of has bens!” Addison asked.
“You underestimate my powers and my abilities Addison ! That is your undoing !”kahn declared. “I am no amatur kahn !”Addison said.
“You are a litle girl trying to take on an avalanche. I asure you hunie you will fail!”kahn told her. Addison was about to fire the rifle. As she got ready to fire,kahn fired on her. He fired on her rifle. Using his enchanced abilities,he used percision fireing and vaporized just her weapon. She droped the enurgy weapon and got away in time.kahn fired on the gaurds. “fall back!” She ordered the security officers to back off. They fell back.
“Joquin get Alison to the ship! I will be joining you shorly. After i settle some unfinished business!” Kahn said.
“Kahn don’t trust her! She will betray at her first opportunity ! “Adison told him. “mis mccomic your concern for me is quite touching !”kahn said. Alison and the folowers of kahn beamed up to the ship. “now this is between you and me! As it should be!”he declared.
“I could not agree more! ” Addison responded. Addison made a play for kahn’s phaser rifle. Kahn tried to strike her with the rifle. Addison sumoned all of her strengh to recist him. She tried to get control of the weapon.
“You canot defeat me! I am an uber man and you are an ant. An act cannot harm a god!”kahn told her. She grabed the gun with all her might. “You sir are no god!”she said. She took the gun and threw it across the room.
Kahn went for the weapon. She struck him. He hit her back. She deflected him. She came back at him and punched him.
He hit her. She met his punch and punched back. “Not bad for an unter mench!” She declared.
He kicked him. She fell acros the room. She ran at him. He ran to her and she fell into a wall. She slamed into the wall. He hit her before she could come tu.
She quickly rose to the ocasion. She got up and hit the super man. Kahn hit back again. She hit her. She hit back. She was not going to be overcomed by kahn. No way she thought to herself.
She hit him. She and him roled around on the ground. They traded jabs. Both tried to over power the orther. It was quite a grudge match.
“Addison ! Give up!”kahn said.”never! I never yield. It is why i was academy boxing champ four years running !” She said.
He tried to pin her down. She grabed him and hit him back.she turned the tables and pinned him. “I am laughing at your superior intelect !”she said.
He was highly anoyed by her words. He tried to get the uper hand. She refused to let him. She was not going to give up . Not this time.
She struck him. She let her survival instinct take over. She hit him. She did not give him time to react. She just kept coming.
He waited. He toyed with her for a while. Then he sprung into action. He strck back. She hit her head on the floor. She was rendred unconscious.
He went over to her. “I could end this all right now! Tempting.i am not ready to end our relationship just yet. I am having too much fun. I gues we are destened to meat again! Until next time!” Kahn said.
He went over to the phaser rifle.he picked up the rifle. He stuned her. Then he beamed away.
The clarks sumit avoided target that would cause heavy casulties.the ship fired multiple voleys on command and control targets. They destroyed a hanger bay. Then the ship left orbit.
“We have cleared elba air space excellentcy!” Jouquin reported.”well done people ! Welcome to the future Alison !” Kahn said. “I was expecting a juno class reserch ship!”Alison said. “It is temporary. You use whatever you can get your hands on !”he said.
“I am quite impresed with what i have seen thus far!”she said. “I hoped you would !” He said.
“Comadore i have located the proxima. The ship was badly damaged!”masada reported. “On screen ! Lets have a look!”comadore decker ordered.on the view screen was displayed the uss proxima. The ship has a gaping hole in the ship near the cargo bay. “My gosh!” Decker said.
“Damaged area were sealed off. Incoming message from proxima. Captain terrel was not injured!”the com officer said. “Begin coordinating rescue operations!”decker said.
Suddenly the bridge went dark. “Report!”decker said. “I have lost helm control !” The helmsman anounced. “Navigation is out!” The navigator reported. “Science is off line !”masada said. “Com unit is stil working !”the com tech reported. ” Life support is active!” An enginering officer reported. ” they dont want ua dead yet!”decker said.
“Entire fleet reports similar incidents!” The com oficer said. “They are going to atempt a hostile takeover of the fleet! Kahn!” Decker said. “What do we do? “The exo said. ” We wait!”decker said.
“The fire wall is active!”kyile reported. “Unfortunately we won’t know just how good it is until we test it in acual use!” Irina said.”unfortunately that is how it goes! Regardless good work!” Sotril said. They thanked the commander.
“Captain! We have lost contact with elba Two !” Palmer said. “The asililum planet?”dr. Piper asked. ” The fleet under decker reports that they have been imobilized! ” palmer said. “We will have to test out that fire wall! Irina set course for elba! I am guessing kahn may be still be there!” Sotril said.
“Guessing ?”piper said. “A figure of speach mark. “Sotril said. “Course laid in!” Irina reported. “Engage mr. Dasale!”sotril ordered. The course was activated. The ship was off.
“Meret dead?” The doctor asked.”there is a good chance of that. I am thinking that may be the case!” Hadley said. “We have to do something !”the doctor said. “We are currently traped in a brig!”the exo said. “We cant just do nothing ?”the doctor said. “We will! When the time iS right!”he said. “When in blazes will that be?” The doctor said. “I don’t know yet. I will be looking for it!”Hadley asured him. ” I hope it comes soon!” The doctor said. “So do i!” The first officer said.
End of part four
“Captain’s log while ships along the federation border are on the lookout for the s.s clarks sumit,i am undergoing a different mission. A much more personal one. ”
Addison got into the shartle hangor bay. She went into the shartle craft Galileo. She entered the craft. She sat down at the cockpit. She began pre flight.
The bay door opened. The shartle lifted off. The scout ship left the bay. The smal ship was off.
“We will engage in a chain link formation. We will work from a designated search grid!”commadore mat decker said. ” You think that they are out hear?” First officer asked. “They have to be! They have to be in the general vicinity!”decker said.
“Commadore! I just detected a minor energy flucuation. We apear to be alright !”science officer masada said.”keep an eye on it! “Decker said. “You got it sir!”the science tech reported.
” Excellentcy! 14 Federation ships afected. Seven are constitution class heavy crushers. This includes commadore decker. With the trogen horse we will control most of the federation fleet.”McPherson reported.
“We can have there fleet imobilzed in seconds excellentcy!’jauqauin said. “Soon i will once again be a prince with power not over milons but billions upon bilions. An empire bigger then ceaser,alexzander and nopolien and all the others combined! Well done!”khan said.
“What now?”zoey asked. ” We wait for the right opportunity ! It will be hear soon! “He declared.
The shartle neared the planet. It brought back memories for her. She was once instionized in a non juducial mental health facility.
“I don’t need to be hear!”a younger her said. She wore a pink cover all with a white undershirt. ” your family are woried you. So are your friends. You have been though more then someone your age should.”a younger Elizabeth danner said.
“I just need time. I need to sort this out on my own. I’m not alright but i will be. No one understands that! Not every thing depends on a comunity! Don’t start with the no man is an island ! ” she said.
“Elba control this is the shartle galio 7. Requesting permission to enter. Sending authentication code now!”Addison said. ” Authentication code confirmed. Releasing shield in twenty second. Please folow landing protical to the letter!”the controler said. “Understood!”she said.
The shield came up. As soon as the ship was inside the shield grid,the shield was rengaged. She always hated that part. She felt traped. She hated that feeling even knowing she could leave whenever she wanted to. The shartle went to the landing area. The scout craft landee in the designated landing pad.
Addison excited the vessel. She was greated by several officials. “Donald it is good to see you!”Addison said. “Hello Addison ! It was good of you to come! “Donald cory said. “It is important for me to be hear! Sam do you always take the most difficult cases?”she asked.
“I like a challenge ! The rehab comision asked me to. They want her represented!”samual t cogly said.
“So will i be alowed to see her before i apear before the comision?”Addison asked. “Yes! The meating room has an emergentcy force field. You will be completly safe!”cory said. “Of course!”Addison said. Adison folowed the staff.
Irina had trouble sleeping. She tried and tried but gave up. She decided to do some reserch.
Commander sotril was doing paper work. The door opened.irina entered. “May i speak to you?” Irina asked.
“Of course ensign! “Sotril said. The commander was experiencing mild discomfort due to her pregnancy. She tried to mask that fact.
“Sir i am concerned and i can’t get it out of my head! “Irina said.”what is the saurce of your concern?”the commander asked.”well kahn is outmaned out guned. He has a non military vessel with a smal cadre of folowers. He can’t beat us in a military confrintation. My reserch shows he is a pragmitist and a realest. On earth he took risk but they always had a resonible chance of success. His only option is a gurila war. He wil probably base his campagn on the barberiens who took down rome or the viet cong. “Irina said.
“That seams to be a valid supisistion!”the vulcan commander said.
“We asume his thinking will be two dimensinal but he has the ability to adapt to unusual situations. The federation has a central computor network. Any ship can acess the federation archive. Being an open society we try to have few secrets. We have to have some. I believe he will try to hack into our network. I believe that is how he plans to take us down !”irina said.
“I believe you are probably corect!”sotril said. “I vant to set up an independent fire wall for lack of a better term. “She said.
“Do it! Coordinate with lt. Kyile. This is your project. “Sotril said.”i vill get it done!”she said.
The doctor was getting ster crazy.he paced up and down the brig. “Your not clastrophobic are you?”Hadley asked. “Of course not! “The doctor said. ” please don’t vomit!”merek said. “I’m trying not to. This imprisonment thing is not for me! I’m a doctor not an inmate!”the doctor said.
They heard the swish of the door as it opened. They heard the sound of footprints. They saw several gaurds. “Captain merek! His excellentcy wants to see you!” McPherson said.
Merek did not want to see him but figured he did not have a say.he got up.
On McPherson’s order,the tech monitoring the cell lowered the force field. Merek came out. The field was reactivated. He followed the gaurds.
Merek was escorted to the captain’s office. The door opened. Merek was escorted inside. “Wait outside !”khan instructed the gaurds. They did so.
“I need your help captain !”khan declared. “I will never help you!”merek said. “Oh you will!”khan said.
“The Vulcans! They are peaceful even pacifists. That was not always the case! They used the mind as a weapon. Telipathic warfare! “Kahn said.
The former war lord placed his hand on him. “Your not a Vulcan !”merek said. “That was quite profound!”khan retorted.
“My mind to your mind my thoughts to your thoughts! From this time foward you will be my subject. You will folow my directives! “Khan said.
Addison waited in a visitor room.the door opened,Alison entered. The gaurds left. “I’m suprised to see you hear! “Alison said.
“I had to come anyways so why not say hello!” Addison said. “You want your conscience alived. You want asurences i am not your old friend. You want me to give you some kind of absolution. I can’t do that. “Alison declared.
“I know! “Addison said. “I won’t ask for forgiveness myself! Whatever we were is gone now! “Alison said.
“I gues i expected that! I am not sure why i came to see you. I regret it went the way it did”Addison said. “You said what you came to say! Our conversation is concluded!” Alison said.
“I came all this way. I am not quite ready to depart! “Addison said. They just sat there silently.
“Commander incoming mesage from the star base. Captain merek claims to have snuck on to an esape pod! The constilation is heading to pick them up. “Palmer said.
“This is a bad idea! It could be a trap!”chief gioto said. “Decker has to suspect that right?”yeoman smith commented. “One ship v one ship. Those are not bad odds!”piper said. “This is bigger then what we think! Khan cannot be underestimated !”dr. Danner said. “Agreed! “Sotril said.
Adison hoped to get answers. She hoped to acheve some kind of closure. That did not happen.she doubted it would but she hoped. Some things just don’t ever make sense perhaps!
“Anything ?” Arial shaw asked.” No! Who is she? Is she my old friend. Is she a robot? I don’t get this !”Addison said. “None of us do! Not fully! I’m glad i am not on the comision. “Arial said. “What will star fleet recommend?” Addison asked. ” Confinement to elba for now. I would perfer indefinitely but i doubt the comision will go for that! “Shaw said. “That seams best! “Addison said.
“What will you say to the commission ?” Arial asked. “I have no idea. I may just wing it. Go with the first thing that pops in mu head! “She said. “Wish i could be a fly on the wall during your testimony !”she said.
“I have the pod! Sending coordinents to helm!”the science officer reported. ” I have it!”the helm said. “Set course for the pod. Ready tractor beam!”captain clark terrel ordered.
The ship headed for the pod. The vesel engaged a tractor beam on the smal pod. The pod was tractored into the cargo bay. The pod entered and landed in a berth. The pod completed landing procedures. Merek stood straght and excited the pod.
The medical team was ready to meat them. The captain walked towards the crew of the proxima.suddenly the captain of the vesel detonated himself. The blast engulfed the room.
Confrence room one A.
“This hearing to adress the satus of Alison morgen crenic is called to order! Today we will hear from captain Addison marie mccomic. Captain !”the chairman said.
She wore the green dress uniform of a female officer. She placed her hand on the computor module. “Addison marie mccomic bragen born Addison marie Taylor. Currently member of star fleet. Commands starship enterprise. Do you have a satement?”the chairman asked.
“I do mr. Chairman !”she said. “You may speak captain. “He said. “I have had to do many difficult things in my carer. This is the hardest. The person in question was a close friend of myine. ..”
Suddenly there was a sound of some kind of air or space craft right above them. Every one ducked. The ship overhead fired on the building. Addison helped several of the commisionors to safty.
End of part three
On the bridge of the enterprise,the view screen was displayed. Instead of captain r.m merek and the crew of the clark’s sumit,it was a crew in a style of uniform from earth’s past.
The bridge crew was shocked. “What is this? To whom am i speaking?”captain Addison mccomic. “Captain merek is indeposed! I am in command now. I am kahn!”he said.
“What is the meaning of this?” Addison asked. “While humanity has made some impressive strides,war,poverty deasease all virtualy gone,you have lost something ! Passion! A new order is about to be ushered in!” Kahn said.
“Your one ship mr. Kahn! I doubt you alone can pull off the kind of revolution you want to!” She told him.
“You would be suprised captain! On earth in romania ,president nicholas cousescu went out to give a press confrence. One person yelled lier. He ended up dying. Don’t underestimate me captain! A new order is coming!”kahn declared.
The ship went to warp. “Lay in a persuit course!”she ordered. The ship went to warp. “We have an incoming projectile! It is a romulin mistle powered by methuselah!” Sotril declared.
The mistle headed for the enterprise. They would have to let the clark’s sumit go. They had larger concerns.
The mistle headed right for them. “Evasive action!”Addison ordered. The ship tried to get away from the large mistle. The mistle seamed to gain on the enterprise.
“If the mistle is powered by methuselah! There is little chance of you outruning it!” Doctor daystorm said.
“If the mistle is detonated the ship will be almost totally destroyed!” Lt. Kyile reported.
“Ry maximum warp!”Addison ordered. Ryian took the ship to the highest maximum speed. The ship kept going. The mistle matched course and speed of the enterprise.
“Vessel has caught up to us!” Sotril reported. “I was afraid of that! “Addison said. “I cannot give you any more power!” Kyile informed the captain.
The mistle kept coming. “I may have a solution !”daystorm said.”Addison rule three in time of crises we can overlook protical! Get to it!”she ordered.
Daystorm punched a few buttons on kyle’s key pad. “I am atempting to acess the methusalah’s overide system. I may be able to shut down the whole mistle!” Daystorm reported.
He atempted to gain control of the mistle. He tried to acess the overide protical.
“They are atempting to acess the overide!” Jouquin said. “Stop them!”kahn ordered. “I’m trying !”he said. “Try harder! Dawn you!”kahn ordered.
“Impact in 20 secconds!” Sotril said. “Daystorm!”Addison said. “I’m trying ! I am being blocked!”he said. “Five seconds !”dasale anounced.
“Set course for the nearest star!”Addison ordered. The ship set course for the star. The ship started to colide with the star then the ship veered off.
Dassale and Ryan tried to take the ship out of the star. The mistle hit the star. The ship went to warp. The mistle hit the star and detonated. The ship was hit by the wake. The ship kept going.
The ship spun in and out. There were multiple explosions thoughout the ship. Stations of the bridge were hit. Crakling could be heard.
A crewman was hit. The crewman fell to the ground. Kyile dodged another impact. He survived the attack. It was a close one.
The ship began to drift. “The wake will impact us in 40 seconds !”sotril said. “Take us in!”she ordered. The enterprise went at warp into the wake. The enterprise went in at high warp.
The enterprise ran in and left the wake. Ry tried to stop the ship. The ship stoped. “We are at all stop!”ryian anounced.
Inside the wake a smal device cleared the debree field. “Its methuselah! It servived the detonation!”marvic said. “That was what it was suposed to do'” daystrom said.
“We have to retreve it! “Gioto said. “Do it! ” Addison ordered.the ship headed for the device.
“We have incoming ! It is the clark’s sumit!” Sotril anounced. “We are being hailed!”palmer said.”on screen!”Addison ordered. Palmer turned on the view screen. The bridge was displayed.
“Abandon the device you call methuselah!”kahn said. “Your vessel is no match for enterprise. Your ship is civilian. We outclass you in every way!”she declared.
“I have scaned your ship captain. My little demonstration left you bateted and blody! Your in no position to battle me captain! “Kahn said.
“Audio off!”Addison ordered.”chanel closed!”palmer said. “Can we force methusalah to self destrict?”Addison asked. “Negitive. It was not designed with a self destruct! “Daystorm said. “Why not?”gioto asked.”it was not a weapon but a peace of equipment ! It is non military !”daystrom declared. “Tell that to kahn!” Gioto said.
“Stand by tractor beam!”Addison ordered. Kyile agreed. The ship headed for the device. The clark’s sumit also headed for the device. The vessel fired multiple voleys on the enterprise. The sumit maintaned course for the device.
The device was beamed on to the clark’s sumit. “How did they use the transporter while the shields are up?”smith asked.”he rerouted power some how!” Marvic said.
“Vessel is gone! “Sotril said. “They used the wake to mask there location!” Daystorm said. “We have lost them?”piper asked.”i am afraid so mark!” Addison said.
End of part one
Romulin reserch facility
The base was involved in weapons reserch. The base was highly clasified but star fleet inteligence was fairly certain that it excisted.
The base was stafed by those who were carfully vetted. They were all placed under an elete unit. The unit was headed up by the preator’s brother.
The base was heavily gaurded. The base was a closely gaurded secret. Even some admirals and senators were not aware of its excistence or location.
“We are an infoming vessel!”a tech reported. “Can you identify the ship?”the commander ordered. The tech ajusted the sansors. He could not identify it until it was right on top of them.
“Sir! Its a federation vessel!” The tech anounced. “Send to command!”the commander ordered. Before the request could be sent,a jamming device was activated.
“We are being jammed!”a tech said. “Shields up!”the commander ordered. The vessel opened fire on the base. The ship fired on the shields trying to reduce the shields. The base hit back.
Kahn’s people were genetically altered and could get pass the shields more easily then a standered human could. The beam emurged in the ops center.
Before any of the gaurds could react,kahn and his people took them on. Jouquin imobolized one and kahn got the orther.
The rest of the team using phasers or bare hands imobolized the orthers. One of kahn’s people sealed the room. Non lethal gass was released thoughout the outpost.
The base had a smal contingent. A camando raid like this was fairly easy. The station was in there hands. They were not interested in holding on to it. They needed it only for a short time.
Kahn and his team scaned the station. They were looking for one thing. “Got it!”jouquin said. “Beam it on to the ship! “Kahn ordered.
The thug agreed. Joiquin had several warheads and mistles were beamed from the station on to the vessel.
“Transport complete!” Jouquin reported. “Excellent ! Now we begin once more! We complete the task we began so long ago! This time we will not fail!”he declared.
The clark’s sumit left the station.the techs loyal to kahn riged the station to explode once they left.the station exploded. The clarks sumit went to warp.
The clarks sumit went at high warp towards the federation. The raid on the romulan base was a meens to an end. Kahn was not interested in picking a fight with the romulans,at least not now. His focus was on humanity. Humans had an infrastructure that he could use.it was an empire already in place . He just had to conquer it. He believed he could.
U.s.s enterprise bridge
“The reigion is on high alert! Every base and ship and planet in the area is on stand by. There will be a series of patrols from now on”Addison said.
“I ssume that we will looking for the clarke sumit?”gioto asked. “Yes we will! We have to stop that ship!”Addison said. “It is odd that merek is doing all this!”danner said.
“It is. He has to be stoped!”Addison said. Every one agreed.
Near romulan nutral zone
The clarks sumit went to a safe distence. They held position. On kahn’s orders,a romulin mistle powered by methusilah was lunched. The mistle had a small warp sled on it. The mistle was lunched towards the heart of the federation.
The mistle came at warp and struck an outpost on kaleb four. “We have incoming ! It is a mistle!”the tech said. “Brace for inpact!”the commander said.
The mistle hit the base. Part of the base was hit. The station was not utery destroyed but that was not the goal. The mistle kept going.
It then hit an unmanned setilite network. The setilite exploded.the mistle then went on.
“Addy! Reports of multiple attacks near kaleb four! ” palmer said. “Clark’s sumit?”Addison asked. “Negative! It is an unmaned romulan mistle!” Palmer said. “Romulan! “Gioto said. “Ry plot course towards the kaleb sector!” Addison said.”ploting now!”ryian said.
The enterprise went to warp. “We have incoming !”sotril reported. ” Its the clark’s sumit!”sotril said. “We are being hailed!” Palmer said. “Now they want to talk!”dr. Piper said. “On screen!” Addison ordered.
On the view screen the crew of the enterprise saw the bridge of the clark’s sumit. They saw not the crew of the ship but people in uniforms of a regime on earth long sense passed.
“What is this? To whom am i speaking ? ” Addison asked. “Captain merek is indisposed! I am in command now! I am kahn! “He said.
“What is the meaning of all this?”she asked. “While humanity has made some inpresive advances. Poverty,desease,war all virtiauly gone. You have lost something. Passion! A new order is about to be ushered in captain!”kahn said.
” your one ship mr. Kahn. I doubt you can pull off the kind of revolution you want to. “She said.
“You would be suprised! On earth in romania,president nicholas causescu went out to give a news confrence. One person cried you lier. It ended with the president dying. Don’t underestimate me captain! A new order is coming!”kahn said.
The ship went out of warp. “Persuit course!”Addison ordered. Ryian ploted the course. Dassale set the course.the enterprise went to warp and chased the clark’s sumit.
“We have an incoming projectile. It is a romulin mistle! It is powered by methusilah!”sotril said.
The mistle headed to the enterprise. The enterprise could not deal with the ship. It had other concerns.
To be continued.
“Captain’s log,while testing out an experimentle power saurce,we have come against an unexpected threat. ”
“A civilian exploration vessel has arived near the test ship. It has refused to respond to any of our hails. For an unknown reason it is interested in the test ship. I have been forced to fire on it!”
The enterprise fired on the clark’s sumit. The ship was hit. “Shields holding excellenty!”jaquin anounced. ” I have you unglued captain! You have no idea what your up against ! Its knawing at you. The unknown. The phantom manace’ the shadow threat. It is real captain. I assure you if that!”kahn declared.
“Orders captain!” The women at comunications asked. “Helm! Mantain course for the test ship! I will not be detered!”kahn said.
“Vessel is still on course for the test ship!” Sotril anounced. “Come on merek. It is not worth it. This can only end one way!”Addison said.
“Vesel is stil on course for the test ship!”sotril said. “Target the clark sumit! Fire!” She ordered.
Lt. Dassale ajusted the targeting sansors. Then he presed the fire buton. The ship ship fired on the clarks sumit.
The vessel was able to calcuate where the projectiles would hit. The clark’s sumit managed to dodge most of the phasers.
“How did they evade those phasers? The calculation are near difficult if not imposible!” Lt.commander gioto said. “Mereks smart but he is not that smart!” Danner said. “Something is definitely off! “Smith commented. “Agreed!”Addison said.
The ship remained on course for the test ship. The enterprise fired. The ship did not dodge all of the phaser impact but dodged most of them. It was still very impressive but it was also odd.
The clark’s sumit neared the test ship. The enterprise was right there. The enterprise fired on the clark’s sumit. The vessel shields held.
The clarks sumit fired on the enterprise. The clarks sumit then fired on the test ship. The ship fired on the shield emitor.
The clarks sumit phasers hit the enterprise. The photon torpedoes struck the test ship’s shields.
“Can you activate the transporter beam?” Kahn enquired. “Almost but not yet!”jouquin anounced. The clarks sumit headed for the test ship. It hit the enterprise and the test ship almost simultaneously.
“Now!”McPherson declared. One of kahn’s henchman activated the transporter beam.
“They have activated a transporter beam!”kyile said.”they are going to try to steal methusilah!” Dr.daystorm anounced.
The device was fuised into the computer but the thug operating the transporter was not about to just give up. The device emurged on the transporter beam.
“Transporter to bridge i have it! ” the chief said. “Well down Rodrigo !”kahn declared.
“Excellentcy the transport has caused a chain reaction. I believe the ship is highly unstable ! It could blow at any minute! “Jouquin reported.
“Helm get us out of hear!” Kahn ordered. The pilot piloted the ship away from the test ship.
“The clarks sumit is trying to esape!”kyile declared. ” The test ship is going to explode! “Sotril reported.
“We have to get out of hear!”dr. Piper commented. “I’m well aware of that mark! Dassale ry make it happen !”Addison ordered.
The helm and navigator tried to veer away the ship from the zone of danger. The enterprise went at maximum warp. The ship did all it could to evade the explosive wake from the test ship.
The large wave neared the enterprise. “Alter course. Take us inside !”Addison ordered. Ry and dassale ploted the ship into the explosive wake. The enterprise picked up speed as it flew out.
The enterprise made it out. The enterprise kept going just in case. They wanted to keep a safe distence from the wake. The wake went in the oposite direction. The storm had passed.
“I have lost the clarks sumit!”sotril reported. “You have to find that ship!” Doctor daystorm said. “Doctor! I know what i have to do!” The captain incisted. The doctor backed off.
“Sotril! Try to locate where they might be! “Addison ordered. “You got it Addison !”sotril said.Addison was woried. She had no idea what was going on.she had no idea what this was all about !
” Why did merek do this?”lary asked. “I don’t know. He was a bit eratic,unstable . He seamed to have bettered himself !this does not fit. Its plusible. It is highly parcular!”danner said.
“What will he do with methusilah now that he has it?”smith asked. “Sell it on the black market? “Gioto said. “Even civilian captain’s are carefully vetted. They look for warning signs of going rougue!”danner said.
“Palmer contact star fleet command. Tell them what occured. Send it priority one!” Addison ordered. “Sending !”palmer said.
Kahn and several of his senior henchman went to the transporter room. They were eiger to check out there newly aqired item.
“The device is stil functional!”the transporter operator said. “We might be able to power a ship for 20 Years!”jaiquin said. “I had a different idea! ” kahn said.
End of part six
Doctor daystrom was quite exicited. He had looked foward to this for quite some time. Now it was hear. He went over to the aft station.
He sat down on the council. He deactivated the controls wich remotely controled the test ship. Regulations stated that a test ship must be controled by remote from a mother ship from the outpost to test site. The test site was usually in a remote area. This was to minimize the risk should something happen to the test ship. No experiment was without any risk. Some were more risky then others.
Dr. Daystrom had turned off the remote. The ship stoped. The ship stoped dead in its tracks. He scaned the ship. Every thing seamed in order.
The ship was ready for the next phase of the experiment. The crucial part. The doctor took a huge breath.
He then presed the button to turn on the power for the ship. He turned on the internal power.the computer began to activate.the lights are on.
“Ships system are operational!”kyile said. “So far so good. Every one stay sharp. This is the hard part!”Addison admonished the bridge crew. They all monitored the test ship.
“Ship is fully operational!” Lary marvic reported. “Briging the methusalah on line!” Daystorm said. “Power saurce is ready! “Daystorm said. “Lets do it! “The captain ordered.
The mathusulah took over the test ship. The engines was using the energy then recycled the energy back into raw power. The ship seemed to be working.
“Every thing is going as planed.”marvic said. Addison was still a little sceptical. She was encoureged but wanted to see more. She decided to keep on her disinterested refere hat. That was important to her.
The ship went to warp. The power kept going. Every thing seamed to be working as it was suposed to. It had only began. There was more of the test to come.
“Captain’s log the test ship has been opearating on its own power for six houers. So far every thing is functioning as it is suposed to. The test will continue. ”
Addison decided to leave the bridge for a rest bit. Sotril took over. She went to her qurters. She picked up her kids. Ryian came in.
“Hey there !”Addison said. Ryian kissed his wife. She then kissed the cheaks of his son and baby daughter.
“I am exchausted!”Addison said. “I can tell ! I am too. My boss is prety strict! “Ryian said.” I have heard that! “She said. They kissed.
“Bridge to captain!” Lt. Palmer said. “Really ?”she said. Addison got up and went over to a monitor. She turned it on.”go ahead!” Addison said. “Your needed on the bridge !”palmer said. “On my way!” She said.
“Why did i chose a vulcan to be my first officer!” Addison asked. “I’m sure it seamed like a logical choice at the time!”ryian said. “Very funt ry!” She said. “I thought so!” He said. She left the qurters.
Addison entered the bridge. “Captain on the bridge !” Yeoman smith said. “As you were! This had better be important !” Addison said. “We have an unidentified blip on the sansors. I cannot identify it yet. It is close to the test ship!”kyile said.
“This area was fully cleared out. At least that was what we were told!”gioto said. “You think this is something to wory about?”Addison asked. “I don’t know. I would perfer to be careful ! “Sotril said. “Agreed! Mr. Dasale take us in closer. Lets stil mantain a safe distence from the test ship. I would like to maintain a safe distence from the test ship in order to maintain the intregrety of the experiment just in case this terns out to be nothing !”Addison said.
The enterprise folowed on a safe distence. The ship got closer so that the sansors were work better.
The ship moved in. The sansors begin to come more into focus. “Anything yet?”Addison asked. “Not yet !”sotril said. “Sorry!”Addison said.
“they are now coming into in sensor range. Checking ship identification . It has federation markings. It is a civilian research vessel. It is the clarks sumit. Records indicate that the commanding officer is r.m merek.”sotril reported.
“I know merek! I went to the academy with merek. He was a nice guy. “Addison said. “Why is he now commanding a civilian ship?”smith asked.
“He failed the psychilogical evaluation! “Sotril said. “This area was carefully sealed off. He should not be hear!” Gioto said.
“Captain we need to sicure that test ship!”daystorm said. “Hold on! Hail the vessel!”Addison ordered.
“They have scaned us. They have identified us by now i am sure!”jouquin said. “We are being halled!” McPherson a female said.
“No response ! Mantain radio silence! “Kahn said. “Sir! Should we not respond!”joachin said. “Not yet! I have no interest in talking to them! Maintain course!”kahn ordered. The helm complied with the order.
“The vessel is continuing on to the test ship!” Ryan said. “They cannot bored the test ship!” Doctor daystorm declared. “Calm yourself doctor. We all know our dutty!” Addison said.
“this is sensitive equipment captain! We cannot alow it to fall into unothorized hands!”daystorm said. “We won’t doctor. Please let us do our jobs'”Addison said.
“They are not answering our hails!”lt. Palmer said. “Are you detecting any damage to the ships com system ?”Addison asked. “negitive. There com system is in perfect shape!” Pitcarin said.
“Ship to ship! General frequencies. “Addison ordered. “Your on addy!”lt. Palmer said. “Merek its Addison from the academy ! Please stand down. You are in violation of a star fleet qarentine. We can work this out. You have to stand down. If yoy don’t i may be forced to do something we may all regret!” Addison said.
“Stil no response !”palmer said.”they are still on course for the test ship!”Ryian said. “Do something !”daystorm incisted. ” lary! Either calm your asociate down or you will be both be bared from the bridge!” Addison said. “Of course captain!” Lary said. Both qieted down quickly.
“Mr. Dasale plot intercept course for the clark’s sumit!”he ordered. Ryian and dasale plotted course for the vessel.
“The enterprise is on course for us!” Jouchin said. “Maintain course! “Kahn insisted. The vessel kept on for the test ship.
“Are we in tractor range ?”Addison said. “Not yet!”dassale anounced.
“Take us into tractor range!”Addison ordered. The enterprise went at warp speed to the clarks sumit. The enterprise atempted to activate a tractor beam.
The clarks sumit atempted to esape the tractor beam. It emited a large pulse. A kind pf repulser beam. The enterprise was forced to deactivate the beam or face a black out.
The clarks sumit continued on to the test ship. “Fire a warning schot off there port bow!”Addison ordered. The enterprise fired a voley of photon torpedoes.
“I do not intimidate easily!” Kahn said. The vessel mantained course for the test ship. “Can you regain control of the test ship?”Addison asked. “Atempting to captain!”lary marvic said. Marvic atempted to take control of the test ship. The clark sumit lunched a dampening field. “I am being blocked!” Marvic anounced. ” Dawn it! “Addison said.
” Take us to the test ship!”Addison ordered. The enterprise ran at high warp towards the test ship. The clarks summit proceded to the test ship.
The enterprise ran to the test ship. The clarks sumit ignored the enterprise. They ran to the test ship.
“are we in weapons range?”Addison asked. “Yes sir! “Gioto said. Addison thought for a bit. “target the clarks sumit! Fire!”Addison ordered.

S.s. clarks summit
Kahn tried to learn all he could about this time period. At first he reserched general information. He studied the history of humanity from the time he left earth until now. He learned of the third world war,colnel green,zefren cocren’s warp flight,the romulan war,founding of the federation and the starship program.
He then wanted more specific information. He studied up on earth,he studied on worlds of the federation. He reserched orther alien races including non aligned and enimies. He became very familer with this universe.he had to, sense he planed to become a major player in it. He would rule again as he once did. This time it would be bigger.
The doctor came in. “How are you feeling ?” The doctor asked. “I am fine. The history leson has envigorated me!” The man said.”we are quite proud of all we have accomplished. I just wish that finding true love was one of them but nothing gets done perfectly in a day i supose. “The doctor said.
“I have had many loves. My greatest is for humanity. I want to see humans brought to there maximum potential ! “Khan said.”we have come a long way. I don’t know that we have left our infantcy but we are getting there!”the doctor said.
“We have lost something . Todays man is bereft of passion. We have rejected every thing asociated with our past. We have thown out the baby with the bathwatter. As john eldrege observed man is ment to be wild at heart. We cannot build a society on fear of anialation!” Kahn said.
“You were not there! I saw the ruins of several cities left over from the post atomic horror. The world was destroyed for all intents and purposes. ‘Those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it’ “he said.
“History is a guide,and a good one for sure,but it canot be the only one. There are other guides.fear is not morality. “The man said.
“Is strength moral? Might does not make right. It can’t. “The doctor said. “I won’t be tamed doctor. I am a warior by nature and by nuture. That cannot change. “Khan said. The doctor did not like the sound of that at all.
“I wil leave you to rest. “The doctor said. “Of course! Thank you doctor!” He said. The doctor was glad to get out of there.
Kahn decided he neaded more information. He had a keen mind and a keen intelect. He would now put it to work. He hacked into the star fleet main frame. He was able to gain acess to clasified projects.
He saw something that peaked his interest. “What is this?” Kahn asked. He looked it over. He went over files. He saw that they were about to test out the power source nick named mathusilah. The more he studied it,the more he wanted it.he would have it. He swore it.
Khan had a plan. He was able to steltfuly though the floor. He snucked to the office of the medical office. He knew a techneque that could temporarily imobolize the medical officer without serious lingering efects. He knocked out the chief doctor of the ship. The doctor fell to the ground unconscious.
Kahn took the doctor’s uniform. He walked around the ship. He was able to get to a transporter room. He ran to the transporter chief. Before he could get to a phaser,kahn knocked him out. Kahn went to the pad and beamed on to the botony bay.
He began to revive his old crew.they woke up. He filled them in on the plan. They were all on bored and eiger to paticipate in the plan.
“We will restore all that was lost!” Joachin said. “I know that. I have no doubt of that. “Kahn told his folowers. They got to work.
S.s clark sumit
“Sir i am detecting a mass amount of power on the sleaper ship. ” science officer hadly reported. “What’s going on?” Merek asked.
Before the science officer asked,the bridge was struck with a non lethal gass that knocked out the crew on the bridge. All over the ship,the same thing occured. The entire crew if the civilian vessel was imobilized.
The team began to beam over to the vessel. ” We will beam over the crew to the botony bay! Every one except for the captain,science and medical officer. We may nead them. ” Kahn ordered. The team agreed.
The crew of the vessel was beamed over to the botony bay. They were placed in stasis. The vesel was placed on auto pilot to a remote but populated area of the federation. Kahn did not meen them ill but wanted them out of the way for now. Awake,they threatened an eliment of suprise.
Once the process was complete,the ship released the tractor beam from the ancient pre warp vessel. “Vessel is ejected!” Joaquin anounced. “Well done my friend! Today we begin. anew.we set off on a new day! That day begins now! ” kahn said. “Alter course! Set course for the test site! Maximum warp!”kahn ordered. “Course plotted excellentcy!” The pilot reported. The ship was off.

The captain started to wake up. He was out of it at first. He had no idea where he is. At first he did not know who he was. Then it came to him. He started to realize what was going on. He realized where he was.
He saw two others there as well. Mr. Hadley his science officer. With him was the medical officer. “I would ask but i am prety sure i know the answer. Kahn!” Merek said.
“Before the hijacking,i was unable to complete my reserch on mr. Kahn. Before the gass attack, i was close to determing who this man was!” Hadley said.
“Well please mr. Hadley ! Don’t keep us in suspence!” The doctor said. “I believe khan is kahn nonian sigh. He was a major player on the eugenics war. ” Hadley said.
“He is a genetically engineered! That explains how he and the orthers were able to take over the ship so quickly !” Merek said.
“We are dealing with a bunch of super men! “The doctor said. “Unfortunately yes doctor ! “Merek said. “Who knows what there plans are! I suspect they may want to conquer humanity once again!” Hadley said. “A modern day Alexander the great!” The doctor said.
“What can we do?” Hadley asked.”not much yet ? I am looking for an opportunity! When it comes i will take it!” Merek pledged.
The turbo lift opened,sotril entered. “Are you ok?”Addison asked. “I am having difficulty. I believe i can muddle though!”she said.
“Are you ill?”doctor daystrom asked.” Negative ! Well not exactly ! “The vulcan said. “I don’t understand!”lary marvic said.”i am with child !” Sotril said. The two had nothing to say in response.
“Now in position !” Lt. Kyile anonced. ” Alright ! Care to do the hornors?” Addison asked doctor daystorm. He agreed.
He activated the test ship. He turned on the engines. He put the ship on its own power. The ship was ready to be tested. The experiment was ready to be tested.
