preservers and the preserved. 

Captain Ben Norris roameed the house in Jackman Maine. “There you are! Becck is ready to surve the cake. You can’t bail. Your the guest of hornor. ” kalera said. “You agreed that if amber and Becky tired to throw me a birthday party that you would talk them out of it! ” he said. “As I recall you made noises that could have been interpreted as agreement. ” she said.”rihansu pragmitsm.” Norris said.

“You know you love me! ” she said. “Yes I do. ” he said. “You do love me or know it!”he asked. ” I am not sure! ” he said. A young girl came up to her.”aunt Becky and amber want you in the living room asap!”she said. He picked up his daughter. The husband and pregnant wife and daughter walked to the living room. 

“Its about time! Our sisters were getting antsy!” Jason said. For some reason Ben found it odd that jasson was there. He could not remember why. He knew he should not be hear. He saw Rebecca’s husband. He did not think he should be heat either. “I can’t believe they incistt on celebrating our birthday every year! I don’t want to be reminded I’m old! ” he said. ” its a celebration that your still hear. ” Jason said. “That’s something I suppose. ” he said. 

Amber brought out the cake. Becky started the singing if the happy birthday song. There were lot of children. Ambers and Jeff’s kids. As well as Rebecca and tom . Jason was not maried. Something was off. He blew out the candles. “What’s wrong? ” kalaera asked. “I made a silly wish by mistake. ” he said.”there is always next year. “She said. ” you can have my birthday wish !”his daughter said. “Thanks hunnie!” He said as he hugged her. 

Suddenly a phaser blast ripped though the street. He told everyone to get down.there was a beam in. It was quter and his ilk. ” what are you doing hear ?” Captain Norris demanded to know. ” I have come to destroy you!” He said. He schot Jason. Then he schot tom.he schot Rebecca. He tried to protect amber but quter ran through him like he was transparent. Amber was shot at point blank range. She fell to the ground. 
“No please. Stop it! Stop all of this! There is no need. ” The captain insisted. “There is every need. ” Quter said. He went for kalera. He tried to shield her as he had amber. He knew it was futile but he refused to do nothing. The phaser blast went though the captain as if he was not there. It hitt her. He screamed. “Why?” He asked.”you are the old.the old order must be destroyed to make way for the new. There is no path like the one true path!” Quter said. “We could do exist. ” He said. “No! No existence. Preservation of the sacred not the profane! ” He said. Then a wave of energy came at him. He screamed as he woke up. He felt sweet all over him. He could not possibly sleep after this.

He was on the enterprise. He had been hear all along. He remembered it all. The one true path. The mass crises,the aftermath, the homes crises ,the zombies and the Christmast party.it was all a dream yet it felt so real. There was no way he could sleep after all this. He decided to get up. 


“Hello captian.”the Klingon com officer said. “I was not expecting you to be up. ” The captian said. ” I have had trouble sleeping sence I was a zombie. My body is still on the mend. It helps to do some work. ” She said. “Is there anything going out of the ordinary?”he asked. ” Sense the mass crises we are in a new normal. Everything is quiet. The post crises recovery is continuing.” She said. “Anything new with the one true path!” He asked. ” Not sence the mass crises. They were on the galaxy most wanted list. The crises put them on the back burner. There have been nothing sence the crises. ” She said. ” OK.”he said. “Why?” She asked. ” I was curious.” He said. “If I hear anything I will let you know.” She said. “Of course. ” He said. 

He took out his communicator. “Dr. Dahner!” He said. She was a bit groggy.”hello this is dahner.”she said. “Sorry to disturb you but I need someone to talk to.”he said. 

She put on a bathrobe over her night gown.the chime rang.she signeled for him to enter.she made tea. He explained his dream. ” You have had the same dream for a week now?”she asked.”it is different but it is Basically the same theme. It’s all ends with everyone I care about including kalera killed by quter. ” He said. ” It could be your fears talking. Your sub conscious could still be deeling with the death of Jason and what happened to Rebecca. Your probably worried about the rest of the family. Despite your trouble with kalera you care about her deeply. Quter may represent the dangers. “She said. “What if there is really is a threat by quter and his preserver cult?”BN asked. 

“It’s posible. Do you have a high ESP Rating?” She asked. “Not really. I was tested at the academy. “He said. She had a memory. She saw the enterprise hit by an energy barrier. She saw a crewman with weird eyes. It was Garry Mitchel “Liz you OK?” He asked. “Yes. It could be some kind of premonition. The mass did cause the university structural integrity to be compromised as you know! It’s posible . ” She said. 

“Maybe I am chasing a wild goose. I might be parinoid. “Ben said. “Bridge to captian.”krik said” go ahead Jim.”Ben said. ” Incoming message form Star fleet command. It’s admiral komack. ” Kirk said. “Have kolona transfer it to Dr. Dahner’s quarters. 

He activated the screen. “Ben !”the admiral said. “Hello sir!”he said. ” We just got a message from anver prime. They report that a sub species has vanished. There is no trace. There village remains just not the people. There is no explanation”the admiral said.

The admiral banquet chapter two(3)

“Captians log,commander sotril and I have made it to the admirals banquet .I must admit to some apprehension. I have been decorated in multiple occasions by command, there are still some question the wisdom of my promotion. Some still do not see me as a full members of the captain’s club yet. ” she said in her log.
“Unbeknowst to me or my first officer,something was terribly wrong. Something that could threaten the federation.”
The two mingled. “Commander sotril !” Commodore Robert Wesley said. “It is agreeable to see you again ” the commander said.
“I don’t know if you are aware but the captain of the Ajax has been promoted to admiral. The first officer is on maternity leave and is not interested in command of a starship at this time. I think you would be a prime candidate for that post.”Wesley said.
“I am hornered but I am not interested. I have not been a first officer for that long. I am open to command Down the road but not at this time.I am content with my scientific duties.”she said.
“I understand your position on this. I think you would be a good fit for the Ajax. I hope you will reconsider.”Wesly said. “I do not believe I will comadore!” she said.
The captain saw admiral komack.”Addison it is good to see you. “He said.”you too sir! “Addison said. “I am glad you can make it. Your missions are already the studs of legend.”the admiral said. “I am pleased with our missions. I think I have the best crew In the fleet.they have all worked There hardest. We have made quite some headway. “Addison said.
“I have followed your misons with great interests . it seams your crew has gone where no one has gone before.” admiral komack said. “I learned from the best. ” Addison said. The admiral laughed.
“I hope so. ” the admiral said . “it was a pleasure serving with you. I hope the feeling is mutual. “Addison said. “It was. I assure you.” the admiral said. “I can’t wait to get back into space. ” Addison said. ” that’s my Addison. I was the same way. “The admiral said. “I remember. ” Addison said. He laughed.
Sotril noticed that admiral lakefield looked nervous. He seemed agitated.  The Vulcan knew him to be a very strong willed person. That was not today. She had no idea why.
Addison saw captain styles.”well Addison you made captain after all.”styles said.”You act surprised.I told you I would. ” Addison said. “You have not blown your ship up!” them captain said .”I had a few close calls.I always get the auto destruct and the replicator button mixed up!” Addison said. “You have not changed a bit. ” styles said. “You have done well yourself. “Addison said.
“I intend  to be the future of star fleet. I hoped to make history every day. ” styles said. She wanted to sarcastically say “good luck with that” but did not. Addison knew she did that on the enterprise.
“It is good to see you captain.”Addison said. “Captain “he said . she tried not to be offended by the fact that he did not say that it was good to see her. She felt like she did bot belong hear. She never felt that way on the enterprise .she just wanted to be back on the ship.
U.s.s enterprise
Pitcarrin was not having fun. He hated that star base operations insisted on looking over his work. He hated that Manny star base felt like if they did not come up with the idea it does not count. Why did they not think that someone else could have a good idea. He tried to stay calm.
“How is it going?” gioto asked.”well Bary it is a good thing that humans don’t suffer from high blood pressure any more. ” the chief said. “That bad ha?” the security chief said. “Its like they think I am a nincompoop. I am s graduate of star fleet academy engineering school where I graduated second in my class. I have several papers published by the daystrom institute. I even had a paper published by the Vulcan science academy. I am no dummy. ” pitcarin said.
“Your in there house!” the chief said.”all we need is a diagnostic. I don’t need a ten point inspection. ” the chief said.
The door opened. The head of star base operations. ” uh chief . we would like to perform some upgrades to some syistoms. ” commander lary marvic said. “Upgrades.our ship is sate of the art. ” pitcarin said ,”I know I helped designed. It. I like what you have done . these are minor. ” marvic said. “There was no discussion of upgrades. Your assignment was simply to check for any contamination due to the worms or any thing else. ” the security chief asked .”I know. Like I said they are minor alterations. ” lary said. “Any upgrades need to be approved by myself and the captain. ” pitcarin said.
“Look I know star fleet protocols. I want to make some changes to the com relay replicator and a few other system’s. That’s all. ” lary said. “I have to look it over first. ” pitcarin said. “Fine I will have it sent over. ” lary said. The man left.
“The base never said anything about upgrades. “The chief said. “It is a bit odd. Marvic is known for being eccentric. ” giiotto said. “For now there will be no upgrades. ” the chief said. “Fine with me pit. ” the security chief said.
  Rec room.
Lt. Palmer was relaxing. “Do I want to know?”yeoman Smith asked. ” I. Reading Vulcan romance Novak. The noble ethic by tospnek. “Palmer said . “I tried to read “edge of galordencor. It was very dry. All of his novals are the same.the protagonist calculate the most logical mate and courts them. Usualy by giving logical reasons why the female should bond with him then she does” Smith said. “I really enjoy them. ” Palmer said. “To each his own I suppose. “The yeoman said. They laughed.
“What do you do in your spare time yeoman?”Palmer asked .”spare time? What’s that?”  the yeoman asked. She laughed. ” I work out in the gym on occasions. That’s about it. ” the yeoman said .
Star base 47
Dr. Mark piper walked though the pylons of the station. He did not quite the enthusiasm he did in his younger days. The station was massive. 
Dr piper went to a restaurant called galactic core. ” Mark ! ” a younger lady said. “Lizzy hello. I did not realize that you were on the station. I figured you were back on earth. ” he said.
“I was for a while. I am ready for a new challenge. ” she said. She was in a wheel chair. ” I am not surprised. ” Dr .piper said. ” It is good to be out in space even if it on a Star base. “Lizy said.
“You could always come back to star fleet. ” Dr. Piper said. “I would mostlikly be behind a desk. ” she said. ” maybe not. You were quite an asset to the fleet. ” Dr. Piper said.  ” let me show you around.” she said.”what’s good hear?” he asked.
U.s.s enterprise
A group of tech brought in crates. “What’s going on ?” Christine asked.” they say they are medical supplies. ” nurse Pendleton said. ” we did not request any such supplies. ” Christine remarked.
She went over go a teach “we never requested these supplies crewman. “Christine remarked. “I am flowering orders mam. ” the crewman said. “Who gave this order?” Christine asked. ” station medical officer Dr. Philip broyce. ” crewman darnelle said.
Office of c.m.o
“The base sent over medical supplies. The supplies are mundane. Nothing urgent. ” Christine said. “Other ship’s have gotten similar supplies. It is odd. Have you inventoried them ?” mcbanga asked. “We are still in the process. ” Christine said. ” there have been weird stories of upgrades and supplies. ” chapel said. “I am going to look into it. ” the acting c.m.o said.
Star base 47
Addison walked though the dining room. She realized there was something on her back . “really captain finegin are you two?” Addison said. “I thought maybe you were feeling nistslgic for the academy. ” finegin said. “Because I love reminiscing about crying myself to sleep so anything that could go wrong did. ” she said.
” it is funny !” he said. “Kick me signs went out of fashion before humanity first warp test. ” Addison said. ” not for me.” finegin said. “How did you get to be as starship captain again?” Addison asked. “I have not a clue .” finegin said ” I figured. ” she said.
Admiral lakefield went over to Addison. “Admiral lakefield. ” Addison said. “You have not had anything to drink or eat yet have you?” he asked. “No I have not. ” Addison said .”don’t eat or drunk anything hear. Your not safe. Neither is your first officer.although she has a stronger metabolism. Please don’t drink or eat anything ” the admiral pleaded.
“What is going on sir?” Addison said. ” you are not safe. ” he said . admiral kandez went over to admiral lakefield. “Is everything ok hear?” the station commander asked.Addison smiled. “Of course !” Addison said.
The admiral had a reputation for being an odd duck. He was a scientist. He made it to th admiralty after serving as science officer of deep exploration missions. He even commanded a science ship. Addison was concerned . maybe it was nothing. Addison never took anything for granted. She would be in gourd.

Aftermath chapter three

Elba two.
“Mr. Chairman I call Lt. Commander Megan shall. ” Sarah said. The medical officer placed her hand on the wound.”Megan Elise shall associate medical officer u.s.s enterprise. ” the computer voice said.
“You are a member of the medical staff on the enterprise?”Sarah asked. “Yes I am. “She said. “Did you read the reports of doctor dahner on miss mccomic?”Sarah asked.
“I did mam. ” she answered. “You read the reports of doctor piper as well as you examined miss comic yourself. “Sarah asked. “Yes I was asked to conduct a second opinion. I read all of the reports before during and after her break down and the contact with the transdimensional life form. ” shall reported.
“What did you conclude?”Sarah asked. “I have concluded that her breakdown was caused  by the weakening of the dimensional shields. Her brain scans verify that a direct causation between her break down and interference from the other dimension. ” shall said.
“You consulted professionals not from the enterprise or the task force?”Sarah asked. “That is correct. We consulted star fleet medical,daystorm medical,Vulcan science academy ,John Hopkins and others. They concur with our findings. ” megen said.
“She has had emotional issues before the mass crises.in fact she had to have a waver and was admited on a probationary bases. “Sarah asked. “Yes that is true mam. She did not have any uses from the time of her academy Addison to the time of the breakdown. She took precautions during that time. “Megen said.
“Your a medical doctor but after reading the reports from doctor dahner and other principles,do you believe that she requires further hospitization?”Sarah asked.
“I do not believe so. She needs out patients advice but Manny do. There is no longer a stigma to mental heath consultation. ” Megan shal.
“I am concluded with this witness Mr. Chairman. “Megen said . “doctor shall ,the medical department on the enterprise is very close knit. ” an andorian bored member asked. “Yes I gues that is a fair asestment. “She said.
“Doctor Mark piper is a formidable figure? “The Vulcan chairman asked.”yes he is a farther figure I gues. “Megan said. “Was there pressure to support doctor piper’s and doctor dahner’s view?”Spencer French asked. “No . doctor pipper wanted an objective view. This wS an important issue we wanted to get it right. “Megan shal said.
“Were you unbiased in this matter?”French asked.”I do not know that I am ever totally unused Mr. French. I did my best to remain unclouded. As I said, I wanted to get this right. ” Megan said.
“Miss mcomic had a reputation as a legend in star fleet?she was considered a rising star in the fleet?”the andorian asked. “Yes I gues that is fair. “Megen said.
“Did you want to write a report favorable to miss mcomic?”French asked. “I tried to keep my personal views in check. “She said. “Did you want to see her returned to service?”the Vulcan chairman asked. “That was a more favorable outcome but I wanted what was best for the service. ” Megan said.
“That will be all. Thank you doctor. “The Vulcan said. She nodded.then She stepped down from the stand.
U.s.s enterprise
Qurters of Norris
Norris was looking over ships records. He had Klingon hip hop playing in the background. “Bridge to captain. ” the vioce of kolona said. “Computor pause recording. “Norris said he activated the com unit. “Go ahead!” Norris said. “Sir. Incoming mesege from admiral komack. On a scale of particle of space dust to quntrum implosion he is closer to the latter. ” the Klingon com officer said.
“Thank you for the warning Lt.I will take it down hear. ” Norris said. The image went from the image of the female alien com tech to the image of the admiral from his office in sanfransisco.
“Hello sir. ” Norris said. “What are you trying to do Ben? You we’re supposed to solve a crises not start a new one? You have every bureaucrat’s uncle breathing down my neck. “The admiral said.
“I don’t understand sir. “Norris said. “Your telling me a member of your team presenting a less then orthodox idea on how to clean up the mass goo and you have no knowledge of it?”the admiral asked. “No sir I don’t. ” the captain said.
“Doctor Carol Marcus she is on your team?”the admiral asked. “Yes she is. “Norris asked.
“She presented an idea that has us all on edge. You know nothing about it?” the admiral asked.”no sir I honestly don’t. ” Norris asked.
“Basically the idea is to introduce a substance that alters the area. It would create a New matrix.it would not restore pree mass space but recreate it. Its theoretical but if it worked …”komack said.
“If it worked,it could be weponized. “Norris said. “If we intend to use it in Klingon space we would have to share everything with them and The Romulans as well sense there space is affected as well. You can see the reprecautions?”the admiral asked.
“You said it is theoretical?”Norris said .”yes but if this idea is leaked they could peruse it. Your staf includes a non aligned alien whose alience is not known.”the admiral said. “You mee. Doctor xi the tholien ?” he asked. “Yes of course. ” the admiral said.
“I had not  heard about this. “Norris said. “Look Ben, loose lips colapses universes. I need you to get a lid on this. Keep this from anyone not in the family that includes your girlfriend. “The admiral said.
“She is not my girlfriend. “Norris said. “Have you made her your shepherds pie? ” the admiral asked.”well yes!”Norris asked. “Then she is your girlfriend. I don’t want any more talk of armigedon solution. There is another answer find it. “The admiral ordered. “Understood. Sir.”the captain said.
After he got off the line with the admiral he knew he had to act. “Doctor Marcus I need to see you now!”he said.
Doctor Carol Marcus knew that she had better not dottle.she was not looking forward to this encounter but knew it was inevetible.if course Kirk took the Artemis deeper into the post mass. Not that he would be helpful in this. He would probably be just as angry as Norris is.
She entered.”Carol you went behind my back. You went to star fleet without even informing me. “Norris said. “I realize that. “She said.
“I was totally Flat footed. The federation is totally up in arms. I had bo clue. ” he said. “I showed it to Jim. He felt as you did.he did not want me  publish this . sir we Harve to get creative. We have to think outside the box. ” she said.
“Look Carol you are a scientist.you think in abstract. We live in a galaxy governed by the agresive use of force.the federation is committed to peace. We are not ignorant of the humanoid will to power. This could be the answer but there are always unintended consequences.” Norris said.
“I understand that Ben. We have to come up with something.time is running out Ben.” she said “this is a Pandora ‘s box that cannot be opened.”he remarked.
“I disagre but I will respect your view. I won’t persue it any longer. Time is of the esense. ” she said.
He knew what she was saying was right. There had to be a better way. That had to . one can hold to ones principle and save the day. Situational ethics need not govern everything.
Confrence room
Captain Norris called people he believed were the best In There fields. There was chief engineer hallak, doctor piper ,security chief giotto,Dr. Terisha,Sr. Marcus,Dr. Kalara ,commander Jessup,.com tech kolona,xi, and Spock were there.
“Ok people, we need answers. We need them yesterday. The universe is getting antsy. The governments represented hear are getting antsy. We have to solve this. We are not leaving this room until we have a workable solution. Let’s get to it. “Norris said.
Elba two
Lt. Chabot continued to present evidence that her nervous breakdown was due to the universe’s structural integrity distortion. She us able to return to society.
During testimony Addison saw the door opened.She heard someone enter. She turned to see who it was. It was ryan Herrington.
U.s.s Lexington.
“You want to get a bit of eat?”ryan asked. “Ensign I am your superior officer.that would be inopriate . ” she said.  Of course your correct. I ment no disrespect. ” he said. “I know that. ” he said.
The two dispersed. They started to go there seperate ways. S he turned around and looked. Then she kept going. She smiled.
“Mr. Chairman that concludes my case. ” Sarah said. “We will reces for lunch. We will convine at 1400. “The chairman said.
She wanted to see hi to ryan. Sarah advised against it.not until he adresed the bored. She agreed.
Staf mess hall
Sarah and Liz went over to ryan. “Hello ryan !”Liz said. “Hello Elizabeth!” ryan said. ” ok ry I want to see pictures. ” Liz said. He pulled out small obs from his poket. He showed her. “Derek is nowt five Hannah turned two. ” ry said. “They are adorable. ” Liz said.
“You named your kid sarek?” Sarah asked. “It was adie’s idea. Ambasador serek helped deliver him. She was transporting him to a sumit when They ran into Orion raiders. The ambassador found the name quite agreible. ” ryan said.
“I am sure he did. “Sarah said. “Ry. Adison does not need to be hear.she belongs out in the stars. The universe is in a crossroads ryan. She played a key role in saving the mass crises.we need her. This is what she is good at. “Liz said.
“Liz I understand your view . I read the transcript of the hearing before I arrived. You did not see things like I did. I was her husband Liz. I saw her downward spiral. I can’t do it again. I saw the effects it had on serek and little Hannah. I am going to apose release. “Ryan said.
“You have seen the evidence you can it deny that a led to b and. Without a without the structural instability if the multiverse,her breakdown would never have ocured “Sarah said.
“You cannot blame everything on the mass or the galactic instability !”ry declared. “The evidence would dismiss that statement. ” Sarah said.
“I have The right to adress the bored and I intend to exercise that right. ” ry said. He got up and left.he was not even close to be done eating.
“He is bitter !” Sarah said. “No he is not. He is not like that. He is hurt. They were once very much in love. Mayby a part of him still is. ” Liz said.
End of chapter three
In writing bored member Spencer French the actor I envision to at him is frequent star trek guest star Bruce French.
My inspiration to play the Vulcan chairman of the comision is Richard fancy. Best known to star trek fans as Vulcan captain in the first duty. He aliso appeared as a sky sprit in “tattoo”
