“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.

“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.

“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.
