“Captain’s log,the enterprise was saverly damaged in the battle with kahn an enigmatic figure from earth’s past. We are beginning damage control procedures. Fortunently casulties were lite. ”
“Engineering !you stil in one peace pitcarin?”Addison asked. “I don’t know about that but i am stil functioning. “The chief said. “How did the engines hold up?”she asked. “Minnor damage but nothing too serious. This ship is the stuf of legends. “The engineer said. “Can’t argue with you there! Keep me aprised!”Addison said.
Nurse chapel and orther medical officers worked to aid the wounded on the bridge. Addison was nursing her arm. There was a visible wound. “Captain ! Sickbay!”dr. Piper said. “There are orther crewman in far worse shape then myself mark! The crew comes first!” She said.
Several crew were transfered off the bridge to sickbay.most were on there own power. Only two were transported by bio strecher.
“Well we know that methuselah works! Right now i wish it was a falure!”daystrom said. ” i know what you meen. Whatever happens it is on us!”lary marvic said. “I know! That is why we must do whatever we can to stop it! “Daystrom said. “I agree!”the man said.
Yeoman smith began to survey the ship. She found a broken circut and began to repair it. She was traned in administration but sence joining the enterprise crew she has expanded her skils.
Lt. Kyle went to check the computer core. He did a full diegnostic on all ships system. He was through. He left no stone unturned.
Lt. Commander giito was known as being cyinical. He felt that he had to be. Star fleet was made up of idelest,dreamers. This made people like gioto necessary.at least that was how gioto felt about it. This all concerned him. The enterprise has been wounded. Though they outmaned and outguned the clark’s sumit,kahn proved a worthy oponent. Gioto tried to find any problem that might have been overlooked.
Qurters of kahn
“The battle did not quite as planed but methusah is all we hoped it to be and more!”jouquin said. “It is indeed.i am quite inpresed. The battle was an opening salvo in a wider war. A war to revive humanity! “Kahn said.
“I assume you have a plan ? “The younger aid asked. “I am forming one. It will have to be multi facited. A comprehensive plan. A program for the future. We will be unstoppable !”kahn asured him.
“There was some kind of attack but it is over now!”merek said. “They were attacked by romulons.the recent attacks were star fleet!” Hadley said. “What is his game? Really he wakes from a long hybernation and resumes being Alexander the great now on an insteler scale?”the doctor said.
“Some people are who they are.change is difficult !”the captain said. ” I hate to just do nothing !”the doctor said. “No we will look for an opportunity and when we have one,we will take it!”the captain asured his fellow captives.
Seated at the table was captain mccomic,commander sotril,chief engineer pitcarin,doctor piper,security chief gioto,helm officer dasale,lt. Irina galiunion, dr. Daner,lt. Kyile,lt palmer and chief takigawa and lt. Tim mathews. The captain called the meating to order.
“Mr. Mathews!”she said. ” The man who calls himself khan is this man. Kahn nonian singh. He was from earths past. He was part of genetic engineering. After a failed crusade to take over earth,he dissapered. There were stories he fled into space ! It seams they were true”tim mathews said.
“According to the files i could find the man is unpredictable. One minute he is a kind,the next minute he is a monster beyond compare. “Elizabeth said.
“What is his goal now? He is awake after almost three hundred years? What now?”Addison asked.
“I believe using history as a guide,he will try to reasert himself into human afairs. He will atempt to create a new empire. He probably see the federation as the bases of a new empire!” Mathews said.
“I believe he has a belief that humanity canot function properly without him. His ego will not allow him to tolerate an organization that he does not paticipate in. “Danner said.
“I believe he has in his own way declared war on the federation. He has a civilian reserch vessel but he is intuitive,inovative resourcefull. We cannot underestimate kahn!” Gioto said.
“He has methusalah. We see clearly that his goal is to weponize it. “Pitcarin said.
“Star fleet wants us to head for star base 12. We will complete repairs there. Star fleet is going to be beefing up security on the border. The fronteer is on high alert. “Commander sotril said.
“We are not going to be part of the task force looking for them? “Dassale asked. “We took a lot of damage. We need to make sure we are in tip top shape !”Addison said.
“I assume if something happen while on route we will join in?”irina asked. “Your starting to figue me out. Correct. Is there are no more questiones,we are ajurned!” Addison said.
Every one got up. Dr. Danner went over to Addison. “I can’t believe you want to sit on the side lines?”Elizabeth asked. “I won’t risk the ship more then i have to liz. “Addison said.
“A big fight between you and kahn,its inevitable isint it?”liz asked. “Yes i think it is. What he did with a scout ship. This thing has just begun !”Addison said.
“McPherson ! You wanted to see me?”kahn asked. “Excellentcy! The methusalah is quite impresive. There design is very sound but it is a bit of overkill. I can design smaller verson of the device that do the same thing. They need not be bulky or combersome. Sir i believe we can use this one as a master unit. I think we can mass produce these poor man’s version.”she said.
“Methuselah can fuel our revolution !”jequin said. “Anything mankind can do. We of superior intelect can do far better! “Kahn declared.
“The problem is that this will take time! We have one ship and it is a non military scout vessel. I doubt we will find alies in the federation. I believe that the humans of this time enjoy there weakness !” Jouquin said.
“Then what? I rather not aly with the Klingon or romulins or God Forbid the tholiens!”zoey rayburn said.
“No they canot be trusted. No one but us can have acess to methuselah!” Kahn said.
“We will have to wait! Hide out and build ships as a secrit shipyard some where?”jauqauin said. “No! I have a different idea! We wont wait. Strike while the iron is hot. The time for the revolution is now! This is our time! This is our monent and we must take it!”kahn declared.
Kahn now revealed his plan.
His inner circle was quite supportive of the plan. They got right to work implimenting it.
Star base 12
U.s.s enterprise bridge
“Sandard orbit acheved!” Irina reported. “Very good. Palmer begin coordinate with star base control ! Lets begin repairs and asestment.”Addison ordered.”aye sir!”sotril said.
“Commander sotril will handle repair and asestment until i return !”she said. “Return ?”Smith asked.
Yeoman smith was shocked. As her personal asistnent,smith knew every thing Addison knew. Today she was blindsided. She had been left totally out of the loop. She did not know why.
“I have some personal business to atend. I will be back soon! “Addison said. Every one was confused but went with it. Addison then left the bridge.
