a wife and mom ends up in jail over a crime that occured a few years back.
Kathy hardly looked like a criminal. She was five six. She often wore a dress or skirt. She was known to have her hair in a poney tail. . she was a wife and mom. Her family were active at a local church.
She was a stay at home mom.she had a business degree. She had a bussibess she ran from home when not homescholing or brest feding a baby.
She had a reputation as being qiet and being a sweet heart. She was kind. Though soft spoken, she was very inteligent. She was thoughtful and insitefull.
She had a secreet. When she was younger she datted a boy who had a shady reputation. Back then she was attracted to bad boys. She was 18 and impressionable. She figured that he was all talk. She never thought that he would do anything bad.
He robbed convenient stores at gun point. She was unaware of that. One day they were driving around. He told her to wait for him. He ran inside. He robbed the store. The shop owner was a refuge from a communist country. He was a fan of dirty hary movies.he took out a shot gun. HeR boyfriend dodged the gun fire. He schot him. The shop owner died from his wounds.
Her boyfriend ran out. He jumped into ghe the car and they drove off. Ger boyfriend fled the area.
The incident spooked her. She changed ger ways.she started attending church. She changed her dress style. She started taking colege clases and later went to a full time on dorm colege.
She put her past behind her. She went to school and had a job working at campus book store. She attebded church near the colege. She met a young man who was pastoring thr church. They later maried.
She never heard from mick her old boyfriend. She had no interest in seing him. She firgot about the incident.
One day the cops were called to an apartment where Mick lived. He was holding a loud party with loud misic and frivolity. He was using illegal substances. This sate stil drugs. He was arrested.
When searching his apartment they found a gun. One of the officers had a gut feelung that the gun might have been used in a crime. As it turned out the gun was used in the robery turned into a murder.
The police who arested mic inforned the police from the town where the crime occured. The district attorney where the crime occured requested extradition. Mic was moved to that town to face charges for the crime. Mic tried to make a deal. He hoping for leniency if he confesed and named co conspirators.
He was able to get that deal. As part of the plea agreement he outed Kathy. The prosecutors were a bit mad at mic. He had misled them a bit. He made it sound like those he was exposing including Kathy were major players but as it turns out none of them were.
He admited that Kathy had no idea that he was a rober. He admited that she did not know that he was going to rob the store.
There was a firce debate inside the district attorney’s office. Some believed she should not be charged. While others believed she should get an imunity deal or at least a minor charge that included little to no jail time. Others believed she was culpible. The d.a was a strict law and order type guy. He believed all crime should be answered for.
He decided to make an example of her. He decided to have her indicted for the crime. He wanted her to do serious jail time.
She had just given birth to a daughter. She had fed her baby. She had made super. Today was her husband’s birthday. She made his favorite dish a meat loaf . she made chocolate cake.
Theperfect up to that point had been perfect. There was a knock at the door. “Who could that be?” kathy asked.her husband opened the door. “Is kathy ridgemore hear?” the police officer asked. “She is my wife!” he answered. They went to the other room.
“Kathy ridgeway you are under arest for robery, aiding and abating an esape. ” he said. She was put in cuffs. This freiked the kids. She assured them it was ok as did her husbend.
She was taken to a holding cell at Anderson correctional facility. She was put in a gray top snd blue pants and barefoot. She was given a beck collar and ankle chain.
“Your facing a life sentence. ” a lawer said. “I could not be aquited right?” she asked her lawyer tyson brandt. “There are witneses who saw you drive mic there and pick him up. He confessed to the crime and naimed you as an unwitting accomplish. Plea it out. You will be in 15 years . ” he said.
“By then my youngest will be 14. I cant be in jail for that long. ” she said. “You wont be get a better deal. ” brandt said.
She took the deal..she gave a full allocation. She was allowed a few days then she surendered to the Anderson corectional facility. She was striped out of her street cloths to a prison uniform.
She was put in a high security cell. She was sad. She was distraught. They feared that she might harm herself. She was given seditives. She was taken to suicide watch.
She was striped naked. She was put in a diaper. The cell was a paded room. She had an anckle chain. There were no furniture. She was constently monitored.
Her family is hoping that the governor might grant a pardon or a clementcy. She remains on suiside watch.
This is a work of fantasy and fiction. No reserch was done. This is not based on facts or law.
The enterprise gets unecpexted help in fighting the nazaka.
“We have been detected!”a sansor technician said. “No matter. We still have the advantage. Prepare the ionimizer. “The commander ordered.
The chief weapons technician targarted the enterprise. “Targarted. “The gunner said. “Fire!”the commander ordered.
A few seconds earlier.
“They dont have any of the new weapon. They have the ion weaopon.”irina said. “We canot afford to be hit even once. “Gioto said. “I doubt they will let us survive. We have too much knowledge . I suspect they want to attack at a time of there choosing. They will want to perform a sneek attack. No warning. “Pitkarrin said. “If we live we will be taken to a prison so far away it will us light years to get back. “Dr. Piper remarked. “Death now or death later. Chioces. “Liz said.
“Is there any defense to an ion weapon?”Smith asked. “Not really.” tim said.”you had to ask.”liz said.
The enteprise went to watp. The nazaka ship fired the ion charge. The enteprise tried to evade. It unleashed a volley of phasers at the warships. The enteprise fired and run. Addison perfered to fight not flea. The safty of the ship was paramount at this point.
The enteprise hit the turets. The enteprise tried to be on the offense. They had to stay intact. One hit and conventional weapons or not,they could be seriously wounded.
“Take us into the gass gient.be carefull. Lets not get caught in the gravity. ” addy said.
The enteprise got closer to the gass gient. “Vessel is still persuing. “Sotril reported. The enteprise kept going. It kept going. “Little more ry.”addison ordered.the enteprise kept going. “Now!”addison ordered.
The enterprise fired on the gass gient. The raditon hit the ship. The enterprise moved out of the way.the nazaka ship was hit by the exploding material.
The enterprise folowed up and fired aditional volleys of phasers at the warship. The enterprise tried to not give the enemy time to catch his breath.
“The enemy ship is showing signs of danage but it is still efective.”tim reported. “Stay sharp people! This only gets worse from hear!” the captain said. “Great! “Dashale said.
“They are very resourceful. It will not be enough. Target the gass gient.fire!”the commander ordered.
The nazaka warship fired a series of volleys on the gass gient. The shock wave struck the enterprise. There were multiple damage all over the ship. The enterprise started to drift. Dasale qnd ryan tried to restrore the ship’s gravity. The ship was back to normal operation.
“Sir. We have incoming. “Sotril anounced. A large wave of the ion weapon was heading right for the enterprise.
“Head off!”adison ordered. “I am not sure we can dodge this one!”Dasale said. The enterprise kept moving. The ion wave neared the ship. It got closer.
The wave was about to hit the ship. It was getting closer and closer. Then the ion wave was struck.the wave was dispersed. The wave kept going. The shock wave passed on.
“What just happened?”addison asVessel. Palmer displayed the image on the view screen. “Is this a real horkani ship?”smith asked. “It would apear so. ” sotril said. The horkani vessel fired on the nazaka ship. The ship exploded. The horkani vessel vanished.
“The vessel is gone! I canot find any trace of them. “Sotril said. “I gues we wont make contact with them today?” tim said.”gues not. We need to get to the doorway and colapse it. “Addison said.
“Course ploted and laid in.”ryan reported. “Punch it!”addison ordered. The enterprise went to warp. The enterprise tried to get to the doirway as fast as it could. Time was of the esence.
The enterprise arived at the scene of the tear in the steucural integrity of the multi verse. Sotril displayed the image on the viewscreen.
“Nazaka ships are on there way. We dont have alot of time. ” tim said. “Do it. ” addison said. The enterprise fired a series of phasers and photon toroedoes. The tear started to grow smaller and smaller.space started to return to normal.
“Captains log the enterprise has left the area and has returned to feferation space. Damege from the battle was minimal but repairs are underway. We are perparing to return to our misson to explore the galaxy. While star fleet has reinstated myself and the seniir staff. ”
“We beemed eigt hours into the future?”liz asked. “All the evidence wouks say yes. “Dr. Piper said. “Nothing hapened literily. “Dasale said. “It seams so. ” addison said.
“On course sir.”ryan said. “Take is out!”addison said. The enterprise went to warp.
After saving a planet from an asteroid bombardment, the crew is invited to a celebration but the food and drink has unexpected affect.
The enterprise crew start to solve the myatery.
“Acting captains log,while investigating a gass gient,the misson was sidelined by the mysterious arrival of an alien vessel from a criptic race. ”
“The investigation was fairly routine even mundane. The enterprise is staffed with some of the best scientist in there field. The prinary misson of the enterprise is contact with othet races. That is where the interest lies with many starship commanders. ”
“The unexpected arival of the horkani created a bit of a mystery. There was exuberance before and after the arival. What if the arival and mystery was a distraction.some kind of diverson. Thr questone is what is the distraction. What are we not suposed to see and why?” sotril said in her log.
Sotril entered the bridge. “Acting captain on the brudge!”smith said.”as you were. ” the acting captain said.
“Ok what do we have on the gass gient? “Sotril asked. “The gass gient is larger then moat usually reported. It apears to be the largest known to alied science. “Mira romain said.
“It was first detected by a long range setilite sojuner ten in the oyveigh sector. It sparked a lot of curiosity in the feferation scientific circles. The gient was tracked and srnce the enterprise was in the are we were sent in to investigate. “Tim mathews said.
“To federation science without othet evidence, it seams to be a one of a kind. Although that may not be the case.”xon said.
“Putting aisde its size,is there anything else unsual about it?”sotril asked. “Its components are prety standard to gass gients. “Mira said. “I am detecting an anknown element. I canot identify it. “Xon said. “It is not close to anything we know off. “Tim said. “Is this substence the reason for all of this?”dapul asked. “Perhaps. We do not have enough evidence to rule it in or out.”sotril said.
“I recomend we send it to the science council for examination.”mira said. “Make it so!”sotril said.”they will have a field day with this!”tim said.”sending now!”palmer said. “You really think this is the roseta stone to all of this?”dapual asked. “There is no way to know. “Sotril said.
“Acting captains log,the investigation into the reserch misson is continuing. We are considering all avenues but are focusing in on a substece found in the gass gient. We have no idea where this will leed. We are not sure that this will provide the corect answer. We have to start somewhere.”
Lt. Commander giotto came into the office. “Look dave i have to do something. I am going crazy. You can head up secuity for now. I have to be doing something. “Giotto said.
“Can you check the com log. I am curious if the transmison did not originate where it claimed to. “Lt.galloway said. “Yes absolutly. You think that the transmisons were not real?”gioto asked. “I dont know. We are grasping at staws at this point. “Galloway. “I will get right on it. “Giotto said.
Gioto went to a work station in the office. He sat down and got to work on his task. He scaned the com logs. He checked and rechecked. The horkani transmisons were rerouted.he wanted to know from where. He traced it to a relay station used by the bezrel. He discovered it was rerouted. He tried to uncover where it was being rerouted to. This was quite a mystey. One that could blow the mystery sky high.
He discovered that the mesege was sent though several sources. The investigation was pain staking. It was a distraction. It definently sparked his interest and he really wanted to solve it.
He used every resource he had to locate the saurce. He found it. It was a nazaka relay. The naxaka were a mystery race. They had made it clear that they were a compititor to the federation. They had conqyred words that could make ore to be used to power a weapon that nutrilizes ions. The nazaka had avoided direct confrontation and now focused on building up there defences and offenses. Was this some kind of opening salvo? He had no idea.
“Your sure all of the transmisons were from a nazaka relay?” addison asked. “Yes we have confirned it sir.”galloway said. “We confirmed that the vessel was horkani. “Sotril said. “Yes the transmission was from the horkani ship eventually. The ship did appear to be an horkani ship. “Giitto said. “Then did the nazaka procure an horkani vessel?” dapaul asked. “It apears to be what has occured. The vessel haul and other feture conforms to the horkani! “Tim said.
“The question is stil why? What were they trying to accomplish. I cant believe it was just to mess up our heads. “Addy commented.”i tend to agree. ” sotril said. “We are missing something but what?” galloway said.
“That substence inside the gass gient?” galloway said. “The mystety substence we cant identify. “Tim said. “Could it be made into a substence capible of powering up the ion weapon or a new kind of weapon?” giotto asked. “We dont know but how could it be colected?”tim asked. “Some kind of ram skoop perhaps. ” pitkarn said. “Its very posible. “Sotril said.
“Where does the horkani ship come in?”addison asked. “Some kind of distraction. Keep us from learning about there plot to build new fuel saurces to power there weapons. “Tim said. “What if it is worse then that. What if the gass gient is from another universe? A paralel universe. The substence might not exist hear. ” gioto said. “This does sound like something up there ally.”dapaul said.”indeed it does.”addison said. “They found a horkani vessel.all this to distract. It almost worked. “Irina said.
“How do we stop this plot? We dont know what this substence does. If the nezaka develops a deadly weapon it could change everything. ” pitkerin remarked. “We cant let that happen.”addison said. “Agreed.”sotril said.
“We have to stop them from getting that substence. ” addison said. “We have to secure the substence in the gass gient and cut them off from the orther universe. Neither one will be easy. ” tim said. “No it will not!”sotril said.
“We are not even certain that how it got hear. “Tim said. “I believe i may have a solution. I can mind meld with the gass gient. “Sotril said. “Your not serious?”smith said “i see no other option”sotril said.
“I could go. “Xon said. “You are highly skilled but i believe that i am a better option at this point. I have had more extensive traning then you.”sotril said.
“I dont think this is a good idea. “Tim said. “I am the logical chioce. “Sotril said. “Tivora i have a high e.s.p rating. I beleve the gass gient may amplify my abilities. “Liz said.”you may not be able to make the conection. ” xon said. “Lizy no!”dashale said. “The needs of the many vincent. ” she told him.”i can do this. ” liz said.
“You are tecnically in command Tivora. You are needed hear. “Palmer informed her. “What do you think addison?” sotril asked.
“I have an high esper rating myself.i will go. The buck stops with me?”addison said. “The buck?”xon asked. “Never mind. I will go. “Addison said. “Are you sure?”sotril said.
The enterprise moved near the gass gient. It held posistion.addison got into the enviormentle suit. “Are you out if your mind?”ryan asked.”after almost five years of marriage you realy have to ask that? “Addison asked. “True. Add. I am stil off duty so taking off my navigator and asistent helm officer hat for a minute dont do this!”ryan said. “You get a hat?”addison said. “Ad! Im serious! “Ryan said. “Ry i will be careful. I cant ask anyone else to do this. I wont put anyone else at risk. “Addison said. “I know. “He said.
“This is what you have to look froward to ry. Me going from one dangerous gambit to another. “Addison said. “I know. Try to avoid unnecessary risks. “Ryan said. “I always try!”she said.
She put on the helmet. She enteted the air lock. She sealed the airlock. The hatch closed. “Hatch is now sealed. “The vioce of the computor reported. She took a deep breath . she depressurized the bay. Then she opened the hatch.
She headed out. She activated the jet back. She headed for the commit. She arrived at the gass gient. She tried to acess the gient. She waited.
She tried to establish some kind of telipathic link with the creture. Then she saw the gient. The images went backwards like a rewind function. She saw a doorway.
The nazaka had used a tri cobalt device inside a nebula. They had created a nexus between the two universes. They had placed the ore inside the gient. They planed to transport more ore. By introducing this genus of comets, it could bring oodles of unintentional consequences. The doorway was also highly problematic for multiple reasons. This was not good. Not good at all.
She got the coirdinates for the doorway. She was able to assertain how to seal it. This was a potential crises. A huge one. She ended the link as soon as she got the info. She returned to the enterprise.
“You got it?” ryan asked. “Got it!” addison said. “We have incoming. It is a nazaka heavy cruser. ” tim reported. “Oh crap!” sotril said.
To be concluded.
The crew try to uncover what is going on.
“My mind to your mind my thoughts to your thoughts. Describe what you see!”xon said.
Addison had closed her eyes. She was in the transporter room. She and the senior staf got on to the transporter pad. She felt like she was watching this. She not relivibg this. She was watching it. It was like viewing a file from an archive. It was sureel.she did not quite understand it.
She watched as her douple ganger ordered mr. Kyile to engage the transporter. The operator complied with the order. He activated the beam.
Just as she and the team was about to beam off the ship.she woke up.the link had been severed. The ship shock.
While she was under the vulcan equivalent of a trance,a large storm cloud came for the ship. The storm hit the ship. The ship was pushed around.
The ship startted to move up and down. The crew on the bridge was jostled around. Crewmembers siting down strugled to hold on to there chairs. Those standing tried not to fall. It was a losing battle.
Markgomery wh. Was guarding the door fell to the ground.he was pishef across the bridge. The wall stop him from any further josiling.
Irina and dapaul tried to stay in there seats. They both felp to the ground. The two sat back at the helm and navigator’s starion. They tried to move the ship away from the storm cloud.
The moment the link was brokon,the storm vannished. It was like it was never there. The damage remaned. That was still present.
“Taking us to all stop. “Irona reported. The ship stoped. “That was close.”markgomery said. “Too close . “depaul said.
“Sir it literily came out of no where. “Mira romain said. “That was what i thought. The question is why?”depaul said.
Commander sotril called an emergency brefing in the confrence room. Tim mathews acted as defecto first officer and science officer. It was unusual to have a wife and a husband in the top posistion. She trusted his advice and wanted him in this job. She wanted his consul.
She oftened chided him for being irrational and ilogical,she did trust him. She valued his advice. He knew that. He had total confidence in her and her leadership.
Also there was acting c.m.o jubulio mcbanga,asistent chief enginer oneil,lt. Depaul,lt irina galiunon, lt. Galloway representing security, yeoman smith and jr com officer angela martine.
“All the evidence is clear that there was a causation between the storm and the meld. I am cettain of it.”tim said. “I agree sir. “Oneil said. “Can we assume that someone or something does not want us to acess her memories or any one within the team. ?”galloway said.”i think it is reasonable conclusion david.” tim said.
“What are we deeling with? Is this the horkani? Someone else?”the acting chief doctor asked. “We dont have enough evidence to draw such a conclusion. “Tim said.
“what are they hiding?”smith asked. “Nothing seams out of order. ” depaul said. “Yet something has to be. ” Angela said. “That is what we have to figure out. “The captain said.
“Have we concluded out that this is our crew?”irina asked. “Not definitively. “The acting doctor said.”it like someone is messing with our heads. They are getting a thril out of seing us go nuts. “Oneil said.
“That may be simply our perception of it. It may not be what is realy going on. ” sotril said.
“How do we procede?”depaul asked. “We will continue to investigate. “Sotril said.
“None of it makes sense. The horkani act like they are on thete own. They act like they are above us. Mayby they dont notice us. Now they do. It is odd. “Smith remarked.
“Are there any more questions. Hearing now. That will be all for now. ” sotril said. Everyone got up. The team started to disperse.
“Acting captain’s log, sick bay on my orders is reexamining the members of the away team. They are looking over the data. I have ordered them not to rule anything in or out. “Sotril said.
“I am starting to think that you ate enjoying this?”dr. Piper remarked. Chepel chuckled. “Mayby a little bit.”she laughed. “That was what i suspected. “Piper answered.
“I sware they have taken every sample they could think off. “Adison said. “We cant afford to leave any stone unturned. ” mcbanga said.
“I know that doctor. ” Addison asdured him. “We are all trying to figure this out. Thats al” mcbanga said.
“Ok. What could be going on?”sotril asked. “Cloning,coalescent creture.mibd control,virus,entity posing as our crew, iliusion. A practical joke. A mouse in a cage typer synerio. A colective hallucination some kind of holographic ilusion. Nothing happened and somone is playing with our head. ” tim said.
“There stil could be something we failed to come up with. ” sotril said.”i stil cant help but think we are playing with. Like things are perfectly fine. We are being led to beleve they are not.”smith said. “A reverse poly ana. “Irina said.
“We need to keep working on this. There wre answers. We just have to find it. ” sotril said.
“Pernisson to leave the bridge. I want to do some thinking. I think i got something. I need somr alone time to gather my thoughts. “Tim said. “Yoy may go.”she said. He left the bridge.
He went to a Jefferies tube. He sat cross leged. He thought. He thought and thought. It started to come to him. It startted to makes sense.
“I have a theory? What if this is all a distraction? Misdirection? We were conducting a research misson. Our attention has gone to the mystery. What if all of this was simply to turn our attention away from our original misson?” tim asked. “Look into it. “She ordered. The crew got to work.
End of part five.
The landing party continues to act strange. More odd things occur.
“Acting captain’s log, the landing party disappeared upon beaming down to the horkani vessel. Then the vessel itself vanished. Eight houers later the alien vessel rerurned. As did the landing party. Where did they go. We have no idea. This mystery is very troubling. There are no clues to what might have happened to them. ”
“You have no idea where they qent?”admiral komack asked. “No i dont. They have no memory of what occured. ” sotril said.
“Are they them? Have you confirmed that they are our people? “The admiral asked. “The doctor beleves that they are our crew. There is no evidence of cloning or any orther fabrication. “Sotril reported.
“What about mind control?”the admiral asked.”we have not found any evidence of nind control. We have not rulled it out. “Sotril said.
“Is the captain in charge?” the admiral asked. “The captain and the landing party are off duty.this was at the captains request. We are keeping a close eye on them. “Sotril said. “Keep me aprised. “The admiral said. “I will. “She said.
“We will stay in touch. Star fleet out.”the admiral said. The scren went from the aadmiral’s office on earth to the syimbol of the ufp. Then it went dark.
“You ok add?” ryan asked. “I cant sleep. I dont know why but i cant. “Ryan said. “It might just be stress. “He remarked. “Perhaps. “Addy said.
Adison was dresed in a night gowan and was barefoot. She put on a robe and went into the main area. She tried not to wake up the kids especially the baby. She could not stay in bed. The sleepless night made her bored. She had to do something.
She sat down on the couch. She took out a book. She started to read. Ryan came out. “Let me gues,andorian romance? “He asked.”i have to do something ry. “She said.
“Your woried?”he asked. “It makes no sence. The whole thing is odd. If i did not know better,i might think that this was a horkani pratical joke.even that does not make sense. ” she said.
“There humor may be different from ours. Mayby abducting people for no apparent reason and then reruening them again for no apparent reason is funny. “Ryan said.
“What if we are sleaper agents or under mind control. We might not activate for years. “Addison said. “I dont know if i have never been in a situation like this. I am not sure .”ryan said.
“I am woried about sarek and hanah.i am woried about the crew. Could we be a danger?”she asked. He hugged her. “I dont know those answers. I wish i did. “Ryan said.
“I think we may need the kids to stay with my step parrents on earth. “She said. “Your sure. You were deternined to have the kids stay with us. “Ryan said.
“I know. I thought it was importent.i wanted to be a mom and a starship captain. Perhaps that’s not possible to have both.”Addison said.
“Lets not rush to a decison ad. You are tired and stresed. Just wait a bit.”he admonished him. “Ok! Your right. “Addison said.
“I know you want answers. So do i. Give it time. Everything comes out in time.”ryan asked. “I know. You kniw me ry. Im not patcient.”she said. He laughed. “Oh i do. “He said. They laughed.
Qurters of dr. Dahner
The chime rang. “Come in.” liz said.the door opened. It was l.t palmer,the com officer. “Audrey what’s up? ” liz asked. “Liz i go to parts of the ship and i have no idea why. I sleep walk but i am awake. I dont get it. “Palmer said.
“Ok. Sit sit down Audrey. Tell me what happened. ” liz said. “I go into rooms and i dont know why.i dont realize im there until someone talks to me. It is so weird. I have ended up in auxiliary control,torpedo room,swiming pool. It is just realy odd. “Palmer said.
“This happened after the visit to the horkani vessel?” liz asked. “Yes that is correct. I have never had anything like this before. “Palmer said. “Ok i want you to tell me about every occurrence of this. “Liz instructed her.
“How are you chief ?”leslie asked.”i am doing good actually. I dont have any of the weird stuf the others are. I am just bored. Other then that i am good. ” giotto said.
“That could be your abnormality chief.”galloway said. “Hear i was feeling prety good. Way to discourage your supervisor. I will remember that when it is time for your review. ” he said.
“Mayby your not going though any abnormality! “Lemli sugested. “I hope your right. Being a security officer is not easy. At the acedemy the security cadets were the butt of the jokes. The future commadore wesley and i attended the Acedemy at the same time. I tried to introduce myself. He said that it was unnecessary for him to learn my time. I probably would not nake it pass the first week. Alas i did. ” he said.
“You will make it pass this one. “Galloway said. “I certainly hope so. “The chief said.
“I have done reserch on every contact with the horkani. The u.s.s Olympic encountered a horkani vessel in 2180. The vessel declined contact. The u.s.s Georgetown encountered a vessel in 2201. A vessel passed by a star base in 2220. Then there was the for exiter incident. In every occasion the ship were unable to scan the ship. We know almost nothing about this race. We have never seen what they look like or even sound like. “Tim said.
“My people have encounteted horkani vessel but they were much the same. They encountered a horkani vessel. They atempted contact but it was unsucesful. After a while they did not even try. They just gave them a wide bearth. Other races did the same. Klingons atempted contact. They opened fire. They did not return fire. They just kept on. “Sotril said.
“This time they atempted contact. The question is why?”tim said. “How did the horkani attempt contact? “Angela asked. “It was a text only messege to star fleet command. “Tim said.
“It was in galatica?”dapaul asked. “Yes it was. ” tim said. “They were watching us. Monitoring us. ” sotril said. “It would apear so. “Tim said. “This gets weirder. It is q mystery with no clue. It is like having a puzle bored but no puzzle peaces. ” irina galiunion said.
“It does. We have no information. Yet we have to figure this out. “Sotril said. “Fun.” tim said.
“How is it going vincent?”luz asked.”not bad. “Depaul said. “You miss the helm?” liz said. “Being a pilot is my passion. Well one of them. I cant do any of my passion. No helm,biology, enginering secuity nothing. They dont even want me in the lab or around the plant we acquired on the dureb planet.”dasale said.
“It is only a precaution vin.”liz said.”i know. If we never figure this out. Will we be on the inactive liwt forever. Can we return to the federation. Can we rerurn to earth? Will we be considered freaks?mutents ? I dont know. “Dasale said.
“You know who you are vince. Dont lose sight of that. This is not foever. This will pass. It will all be a distent memory. ” liz told him. “I hope so. “Dasale said.
She took hiw hand. She backed away. “Im sory.”liz said. “Its ok doc. “He said. “If you will excuse me”liz said. “Of course. “He said. They dispersed.
“Why are we hear?”dr. Piper asked. “I have bo idea. Commander sotril asked me to round up the team. Hear we are. ” addison said. “Then where is she?”giotto asked.
The door opened. Sotril and tim entered. A another vulcan entered. “I want to attempt a mine meld. Usualy it would be me. Due to my condition and uncertainty i assumed that you would not allow me to do it. “Sotril said. “You are right about that tivora. “Addison said.
“Ensign xon is well versed in vulcan mind meld techniques. He has agreed to paticipate. ” Sotril said.
“You understand the risk. We have no information. You could be exposing yourself to a pathogen. “Dr. Pipper said. “I understand that doctor. I accept whatever risk there may be. I believe that the chances of ariving at an answer to this myatery outweigh the risk.”xon said.
“I explaned him the risk . i was through in my discussion of those risks. “Sotril said.
“Alright. I will go first. “Addison said. “I assumed as much. “Sotril said. Both xon and Addison sat down.he placed his hand on hers.
“My mind to yours. My thoughts to yout thoughts. You were on the transporter room on the enterprise. Discribe what happened. ” xon said.
“We have an incoming. ” lt. Mira romain said. “Report.”lt. Dapaul ordered. “It seams to be some kind of storm cloud.bit is heading right for us. ” the acting science officer said. “Shields up. Evasive action. ” dapaul ordered.
The wave headee right for the enterprise. It got closer qnd closer. It was about to hit.
End of part four.
Lt.depaul was a relief helm officer. He was played by sean kenery who also played the cripled captain pike. He apeared in “a taste of amigeddon” and “arena”.
Angella martine apeared in “balance of terror”,”shore leave”and” turnabout intruder”
Xon never apeared in star trek. He was to replace spock and lenoard nimoy in phase two show. Xon was a full vulcan. He did appear in the non canon fan series”star trek new voyages,a.k.a phase two”
Lt. Mira romain apeared in “lights of zetar”
The reference to gioto and wesly is an inside joke. Both played by bary russo.
Addison and the landing party return to the ship. They act a bit strange.
“Acting captain’s log,comnander sotril reporting. Captain mccomic and most of the senior staff beemed to a ship belonging to the norkani.once they beemed on to the ship,the ship has vanished. There is no trace of the ship or our crew. “She said.
The bridge crew worked feviously to locate the ship. “Do you have anything tim?”sotril enquired. “The sansor log goes cold almost the minute the crew emurged on bored,the log goes cold. “Tim said
“There is nothing at all? “Yeoman smith asked. “I have checked abd checed for everyrging i know to look for. Yes i am trying to check for things i have not thought off. So fari have not found anything”tim said.
“I am thinking some kind of new warp drive. Well new to us. “Lt. Oneil said. “There were rumors of ancient races who created conduit networks though space. Perhaps they used them or created there own. ” depaul said.
“Captain star fleet is requesting an update. “Angela at the com said. “Inform them what has hapened. They should be informed. “Sotril said.
“They will want answers yesterday. “Irina said. “As do we all lt. “Sotril said. “I sent the update. “Angela said.
Lt. Kyile and several technicians were taring apart the transporter circut by circut. They were searching for any clues.while there is little chance of clues in the transporter, you never know.
Sotril entered. “I have determined that the captain and the team did beam over to the alien ship. After that i dont know. ” kyile said.
“Could the beam have been redirected? “She asked. “Perhaps. I cant rule it out . “kyile told her. “We are grasping at proverbial staws i know. “Sotril said.
“Well this does concern the captain and senior staff. I am fine with it. “Kyile said. “Keep me aprised. “Sotril said.he agreed. She left. The door closed.
“Hear is the report you asked for. “Smith said. “Thank you andrea. ” Sotril said. “How are you holring up?” the yeoman asked. “Most non vulcan see my people as cold,uncaring. I am unemotional not heartless. Vulcan do not have the same kind of friendship humans do but the captain,Elizabeth, dr. Piper,palmer,vincent,neil even security chief giotto are my co workers and my friends. I am highly motivated to solving this. “Sotril said.
Sotril rentered the bridge. “Star fleet wants another update. “Angela said. “Send them what we have been doing. ” sotril ordered. “Surger coat it basically. “Tim said. “Basically. “She said.
All of a sudden, the horkani vessel returned. ” captain!” smith said. “Can you confirm that is the same ship?” sotril asked. “The hull signature is identical. “Tim said. “Sotril to kyile. Can you get a lock on them?”sotril asked.
In the transporter room,lt. Kyile activated the transporter controls.the beam engaged. “I have the team. Energizing now. ” the operator reported. Kyile and technician wilson worked to beam up the team.
On the pad,the captain and the senior officers materialized on the pad. They were standing on ther own two feet. They all apeared to be in good health.
“Bridge i have them. “Kyile reported. The captain and her team seemed out of sorts. They were confused.
“Why did you beam us back so soon?” addison asked. “Soon? You have been gone for eight houers sir.” techician wilson remarked. “Realy. I literaly just beemed over there. Didn’t i? ” addison asked.
“Hail the vessel!” sotril ordered. Before Angela could hail the ship,the alien veasel vanished. It was like it was never gone.
“Why am i not surprised? Tim remarked. “Have the landing party taken to sickbay. I want doctor macbinga to go after them with a fine tooth comb. “Sotril ordered. “I am communicating that to the doctor. “Angela assured her.
“Inform star fleet. Tell them to stand by. “Sotril ordered. ” understood. Sending sir. “Angela said. “Tim you have the bridge. ” sotril informed her husbend and de facto first officer. “You got it.” tim said.
Sotril walked to the door to the turbo lift. The door opened. She entered. She was inside the turbo lift. The door closed.
The captain and the landing part were standing escorted from the transporter room. Leslie,galloway and lemli followed the team. “Why the security escort?”liz asked. “You were miasing for eight hours. You were probably on an alien ship. Aliens we know nothing about. We have to be Carefull. ” galloway said. “Understandible. “Addison said.
They neered the sickbay. The door opened. “Dont you dare say it jubulio. I still write your reviews ” dr. Piper said. “I was not going to.”dr. Mcbanga said. “I asume the captain goes first?” chepel said.
Addison got on the bio bed. The computer began to scan her. Reedings were displayed. Mcbanga and chepel looked them over.they checked and checked.
“Is something wrong?’addison asked.”not that i can see captain. I just want to be sure. This was a highly unusual situation. ” dr. Mcbanga said. “I can understand that. “Addison said.
“From all i can see your not a clone or a replicant or an android. I find no evidence your w coalescent creture. I cant totaly rule those things out. Thr evidence i have seems to indicate your human. “The relief doctor said. “That a relief. I wish you could be totaly sure.i will take what you have. ” addison answered.
“I dont see any evidence of any new surgeries. I see no evidence of implants or any devices. ” dr. Morrison said.”you probably canot scan for evidence of mind control. “Giitto said. “No i find no evidence of mind manipulations or alteration. I might not be able to. ” dr. Mcbanga said.
“This realy is not comforting. “Addison said. “Everything i see says your fine.”mcbanga said. “What i do find odd is that you have no new memory engrams. For you time stoped after you beemed away and did not resume until you were in the pad. ” dr. Morisson said.
“That is the odd part. I remember beeming off the ship. Then i was back hear. ” palmer said.
“That is what i remember as well. “Ryan said. ” Did they erase our memories or did we not have any memories?” vincent dashale said. “Could we have been taken to another dimension?” pitcarin said. “I dont know how to scan for that or if it is even possible. ” mcbanga said.
“Acting captain’s log, the test in captain Mccormick and those who were on the landing party is complete. So far there is no evidence of any thing out of the ordinary. Given there time unaccounted for,i am still concerned. ” Sotril said.
“While it seams that you are fine. I stil have concerns. “Sotril said. “You dont want me to return to duty?”addison asked. “I am not sure that that is prudent. We dont have enough information yet. ” she said.
“I want to stay on duty whoever until we figure out what’s going on,you will be in operational command. “Addison said. “Thank you addison. “Sotril said. “Of course. I will put the needs of the ship ahead of my own vanity. ” she told the vulcan. “I have never doubted that you would. Addison i know i come off as cold. I am releved that you have returned unscaved. “Sotril told her. ” i valure my friendship with you.i have come to understand that you are not cold ot heartless. By the way congratulations your going to make a great mom. ” she said. “I hope so. “Sotril said.
“Your woried about rasing a half human child ? “Addison asked. “A bit . my expectations would be for the child to be logical raised in the vulcan tradition. That child might not chose logic.i myself have strugled with this issue. I don’t want to be harsh especially where i have been wanting in this regard. I could see myself going overbored. ” sotril said.
“It wont be easy. I doubt tim will try to hinder the child from a pursuit if logic. He will influence that child rather he wants to or not. Remember your strugles. Remember how dificult it was. Be with that person. “Addison said.”i will try to do that. ” sotril told her. “Good. ” addison said.
Queters of addison and Ryan.
Adison picked up her daughter. She held him. She talked to her son sarek.he was playing with action figures and farm animals. Ryan came in.
“Hey ad. ” ryan said. ” hi!” she said. “You ok addy?”ry asked. “I hate not remembering. I hate that i have no idea what happened. ” addison said.
“I dont like this either. We will get this figured out. “Ryan asked. “What if we dont ry? There are already events in my life that are unknown. I know little about my parrents. I dont even where i was born. I dont know much about where i came from. ” she said.”i figured that that is where this comes from. “Ry said.”what if we are sleaper agents? Some kind of manchurian canidates” she asked.
“You think we are?” ry asked. “I dont know. Usually i would say not a chance. How do i know i am me? How do i know i wont hurt them? ” addison said. “Ad i know you. You would not let anything happen to them “ry said.
“I dont know. I wish i could beleve that. “Addison said. “I understand that. We will get though this. “Ry said.ryan held her. She rested on his shoulder. He held on to her.
Gioto was punching a punching bag. He tried to get over his pent up agresson. It was not working. He was stil was in an agitated sate.
“You ok chief?”galloway said. “Just blowing off steam. “Giito said. ” stil cant remember what went on over there?” galloway asked. “No i cant. I have tried.i figure i should stop trying. Maybe it will come to me.” the chief said.
“Dont swet it chief. Sone thing take time. ” leslie said. “I dont know. I dont like showing weaknesses. This is the ultimate weakness. ” the chief said.
“Trying to get a second opinion mark? ” dr. Mcbanga asked. “I dont doubt your findings. I was hoping i could find something you missed. So far i have not. Those missing memories canot be missing. “Dr. Piper remarked.
“What if they are not. What if you beemed to the ship then back hear. ” dr. Mcbanga said. “That makes no sense. Why would we beam to the ship just to come back? ” dr. Pipper remarked.
“The simplest explanation is usually the truth. That is the simplest explanation. ” the younger doctor said.
“I know that. The facts suport it. I wish i knew what it ment. I cant believe that the horkani just got bored and decided to say hi.” dr. Piper said.
“I see what your saying. I agree but i have no idea. Your right. What are we mising?” dr. Mcbanga said. “There has to be a mising clue. ” piper said.
Pitcarin looked around the engine room. He lookee right but he did not feel right. Something was off. He could put his finger on it.
“Welcome back chief. “Oneil said. “Oh i am not hear to resume duty. I just wanted to look around. I know it sounds silly but i missed the engine room. I know i was not gone that long. ” the engineering chief said.
“You are the chief chief. You hardly need a reason to justify your being hear. ” oneil said. “Thank you mr. Oneil. ” pitcarrin said.
He should be at home hear. He was not. He felt at unease. He could not understand why. He tried to calm down.
He then left the engine room. Oneil found it a little strange. Oneil overlooked it for now.
Liz felt on edge. She had felt fine before she borded that ship. She just felt tense.
She saw herself. She was someone else. She was on a planet. It was rough. It was borboding. There were rocks and wind. She saw a man she never met. He wore a star fleet uniform.he seemed to have extraordinary powers.
“Doc doc!” dasale said. “Vincent i never saw you come in. ” she said.”i feel strange.i cant explain it. I cannot describe it. Its real.at least i think it is. ” dashale said. “Sit down.lets talk about it. “Liz said.”ok!” he said.
Palmer sudenly realized she was near auxiliary control.she had no idea why she was hear. “Are you ok?”a crewman asked. “I am fine .”palmer said. She returned to the brudge.
End of part three.
An alien race usually aloof wants a meeting. Something is up.
“Captain’s log while on a routine reserch misson i have jusr received new ordere from star fleet command. Though far from federation space we atempt to stay in contact ae much as possible. Sometimes in direct communication some times hy subspace radio. ”
On the view screen was the image of admial komack.”hello addison!”he said. “Admiral. The federation has atempted start a dialougue with the horkani for almost a hundred yars now with no luck. 29 years ago the starship exiter atempted to follow it and engage contact. After a week ofhigh warp it was forced to abandon the persuit. Now out of the blue they want to meet with us. They have agreed to come hear. Your science misson can continue.they have invivted your entire senuor staf aboard. “He said.
“The asked for the enterprise specifically? ” addison asked.”yes. We thought it was odd. It was not an unreasonable request so we agreed. They should be in your area in a few houers.get rested up you have a long day ahead of you.”he said.
“We have no idea what they want?”addison asked.”none. I wish i had more for you but i dont. “He said. “Its fine. “She said. “We wikk keep in touch star fleet out.”he said. The screen faded.
Asembled was the memebers of the senior staf and yeomwn smith th captain’s asisitent.”the federation has known wbout the horkani sense before the federation was established. The u.s.s horatio encountered a ship back in 2180. There have been sigtings but no contact. The horkani are requesting a . they are coming hear so we can continue our reserch. “She said. “Are we sure they are friendly ?”commander gioto asked. “Pethaps they should come to our ship. “Dr. Piper said. “There is bi evidence that the horkani have wished anyone harm. I see reason not to bored there ship as they requested. “Addison said.
“I recommend a medical scan before and after we bored the vessel.”piper sugested. “Agreed.”the captian said.”great i get pocked and proaded brfore going into the frying pan!”giotto said.”you always been this cyinical?”smith asked.”i am a security officer in my 50s. I am not sure how i servivied this long.”the chief said.”today is hardly a good day to die. I am not seing any trouble. As soon as we are done report to sickbay. “Addison ordered.
The captain dismised the meating.everyone got up. They all left the meeting. Everyone was concerned but stil anticipating the event.
“It seams your in perfect health addison!”dr. Piper said. “Glad to hear it doc!” addison said. She got off the bio bed. She went to the back of the room.
Commander sotril got on the bed. The bio bed scaners activated. Piper and chepel looked over the reedings. Tim noticed that they spent a lot of time looking over reedings.
“Is everything ok?” tim asked. “Yes. They are fine!”dr. Piper said.”they?” addison said. Tim squished her hand. “Congratulations!” ryan said.
“Tivora you cant go. There is too much uncertainty! “Tim said.”i do not agree. I believe that i can still go to the ship. “She said. “This is an uncertin situation. Why dont you stay on the ship. Besides you can continue your research. ” addison said. “Understood. ” she said.
“If i am pregnant can i stay behind?”giotto asked. “All of the things you have ever said,this one certainly has taken the cake. “Chief engineer pitcarin said.
Qurters of the captain.
Addison changed into the green dress uniform.her dress uniform had a series of gold fringes. She had braided her hair. “How do i look?”she asked. “You look great. I wounder if comadore wessley or commadore decker spend as much time getting ready as you do. ” ryan observed.
“Hey! This is a first contact sitution. I want to be presentible.”addison said. “What if they are blind?” ryan asked. “I had not consider that. “She said.
“What do you make of liz’s high esper ratings?”ryan asked. “A lot of people have high esp ratings. She is hardly a mutent. Liz has always been a little exsentric but i have never had a reason to doubt her. She is one of my closest friends. You concerned about her?” she asked. “No .this ship is full of suprises.”ryan said. “I have notticed that. ” she said.
Ryan wore a gold dress uniform jacket. “How do i look?” he asked.”handsome ome as ever ry!”he said. The chime rang. “Come in. “Addison said.
The door opened, a young officer dresed in civilian cloths entered. “Becky thank you for watching them.”addison said. “No problem. It is my pleasure. ” she said. She picked up the baby. “Sarek your going to stay with aunt becky. ” addison said.
“We have incoming. Vessel is consistent with vessels used by the horkani. “Right on shedule. “Smith said. “They are prompt. “Liz remarked. “I had a feeling that they were. ” dashale said.
“Vessel has sent over coordinates. “Palmer said. “Ok. Sotril take over. “Addison said. “Be carefull adison.”sotril said. “You got it. If i know mr. Kyle he will continue to monitor our reedings. If something is off he can bring us back. ” she said.
The senior staf left the bridge. They entered the turbo lift. The door closed.sotril took the command chair. Tim mathews took over the science station. Lt. Angala martine took the com station. Lt. Dapaul took over the helm. Irina galiunon took the navigators post.
“Coordinates laid in sir!” lt. Kyile reported. ” ok lets do this!” addison said. The command staff minus the first officer steped on to the pad. “Energize mr. Kyile. ” addison ordered.
Kyile activated the controls. The team was beamed over to the other vessel.
“Transport complete. ” tim reported. All of a sudden the ship vanished. “Report!” sotril ordered. “I am not detecting any sign of that ship. No warp signature nothing. ” tim said. “I need answers now!” sotril ordered.
End of part two.
