“Captians log,the enterprise has gone back in time in an alternate universe. Our mission is to alter history. We want to stop a series of events that could potentially wipe out much of what some call the multiverse. ”

“I can confirm that we have traveled back a few days. We are near the time that the explosion accrued. “The Klingon aft station commented.
“Locate the argonaught!”the captain ordered. Worf adjusted the sansors. He located the ship. “I have it. Sending to the helm now!”worf announced.
“I have the coordinates sir!” gordi said. “Head for the vessel!”Jack ordered. Gordi set the course. “Course plotted and engaged!”the pilot reported. Th enterprise headed for the ship.
Argonaught
Bridge
” on course for the lightning ship”!the tech said .”alright lets get this over with !”the captain said. “Sir we have incoming !”the tech said.”is it the lightning?”argyile asked. “Negitive, it is a federation starship”the tech said.
“There were to be no federation starship in the area. “Argyile declared. “Sir! It is not a vessel I recognize. Its call letters are ncc 1701-d. Uss enterprise.”the science tech said.
“Hail that vessel!”Captain argyile said. “Hailing captain “the com tech said.The com tech activated the com unit. “They are responding !” the tech said. “On screen ” captain argyile said.
The view screen was activated. He saw the bridge of the gigantic command center. Then the captain was shocked by what he saw. It was one of the ones next to him. It was him.
“Hello !”the prime argyile said. “What is this?”captain argyile asked in a disbelieving tone. ” this ship is from another reality. We came hear to warn you of an impending attack. At the same time we ask you to not engage the lightning . “the chief said.
” you. Claim to be from an alternative universe. Now you urge us to not engage an enemy who is determined to destroy US !”the captain,argyile said.
“I know this seams preposterous but if you engage there ship,it willl bring about a series of events that will culminate into the destruction of a good part of the galaxy as well!”the enginer argyile said.
“Why should I believe this! Lets me gues your from the future as well!” the captain argyile said. Jack nodes to ensign banner. Bennet activated the transporter.
A peace of the arganaught was beamed to there bridge. “This is some kind of deception !”captain argyile declared.
“I assure you that this is not a deception captain!”Jack said. “Why should I believe you?”he asked. “Have it scanned captain. Have your people go over it. Go over it yourself. You will see that it is true. ” chief argyile told him.
” what is it you want?”the captain,argyile said. “You will engage a lightning super ship. It will destroy itself. It will destroy most of the alpha quadrant in your reality. We believe it could threaten ours. ” Jack said.
“We cannot stand by while they attack us!”argyile said. “Captain I have an idea. I believe it can work. We need to cooperate. The fate of two universes hang in the balence!”Jack said.
“Very well ! I want to know every detail of this plan. I want to know everything. Leave nothing out !”the Captain of the arganaught said.
“Off course. We will share every thing with you. “Jack crusher assured his counterpart. “Alright. “The other captain said.
The lightning ship came out of warp. “Now on course for that ship.”gordi Laforge reported. “Ok Deana! Its your turn up to bat!”Jack informed Deana. “Ok I’m ready!”she said. “Go to work counselor!” captain crusher ordered her. She agreed.
Deana concentrated. She closed her eye. She imagined herself in a white room. She listened. “I come in peace. I am an ambassador. An envoy. “She said.
“You speak for argyile!” a voice said.”I speak for the United federation of planets. I speak for my captain. “She said.
“The shadow man. The man  who should not ge but is. “The voice said. “I cannot speak to that. We are from a different reality. Your actions will adversary affect ours!” Deana said.
“Coleteral damage !casualties of war!”the Vince said. “Why? Why are you at war with the arganaught? ” Deana asked.
“The ships caused an arms race. This arms race threaten US. Enemy races to US were among those experimenting with arganaught inspired technology. Smal ships using smaller crew are the future. Thus solves the power aculization curve. This alows more violence. We must act. “The voice said.
“Your solution a scorched universe?”she asked. “It will rebuild!”the voice said. “How long. It will take centuries perhaps longer to rejuvenate the reigon!” Deana said. “No choice!”the voice declared.
“Why are you adamant in fighting this?”Deana asked. “There is a component harmful to our race. The ships are multiplying!”the voice said.
“This is not the answer! There has to be another way!”Deana insisted. “Humans stubborn ! You do not like being told what to do! Humans tend to ‘double down’. We cannot take that risk!”the voice declared.
“Perhaps something can be worked out!”Deana said. “No! Canot waste time! No time! Too critical!”the voice said.
Deana woke up from the trance. “I spoke to them! They are very incistent. They do not trust this reality’s star fleet especially your douple ganger. “Deana said
“I got the impression that ‘captain ‘ argyile is. Not quite as charming as I am!”the chief said. “It appears so!”Jack said.
“What do we do?” Bill asked. Jack got up from the command chair. “Intercept! Time for plan b. “Jack said. “On course!”gordi reported.
The enterprise went to high warp. The vessel headed for the lightning dreadnaught.
The enterprise neared the ship.”now worf”Jack said. The Klingon presed the button. The ship emitted an energy pulse. The pulse started to jam key systems in the dreadnaught.
“It is having an affect captain!”ensign bannet reported. Deana fell back into a trance. She figured that the aliens were trying to trying to reopen communications.
“Not  war with enterprise! Why did you attack us with that pulse?”the voice asked. “They are our people. Your threatening them threatens us all. There has to be another way!” Deana said .
“Argyile created a monster. That monster must be. Neutralized. “The voice said. “Even if the federation agreed to stop using the arganaught class vessel,would others. It might not solve anything. “Deana said.
The voice became a humanoid figure .”you promish us nothing! Yet you want US to do much. “The humanoid said.”I have an idea!”Deana said.

“You can’t be serious!” captain argyile said. “There is no other choice chief excuse me Captain!”commander troy said. “I have worked on this s good portion of my adult life. This made me who I am in many ways. Now your asking me to abandon it. “Captain argyile said.
“You know this is the only way. You know you have to do this. “The enterprise’s argyile said. “Yes I do . if we do this will these aliens back off?”captain argyile asked. “Yes I believe they will. I since no deceat in him. “She informed the captain.
” alright! I will do it!” argyile said. “We can go back in time with you !”Jack said. “No that will not be necessary! I can handle this .I will get it done !” the captain said. “Can you convince your younger self to change course? We argyile are stubborn!”the chief said. “True. You convinced me. “The captain said.
“Captains log,the Captain of the arganaught sucesfully convinced his younger self to not present the arganaught idea to star fleet command. The bleak future has been prevented. “Jack said.
Planet Cousteau
Our universe.
“We have dramatically changed history. This is proven. “Jack told argyile. ” you think we altered history or altered an alteration?”argyile asked. “I have wondered that myself. I don’t know. I will keep watching. “Jack said

“Captain’s log, the enterprise discovered dibre that appeared to be a federation ship. The ship turned out to be from another reality. This led to a confrontation to an alien ship. Now we are in another reality”

“Captian originally we suspected that the debre from the explosion was fixed. Upon deeper scrutiny we have concluded that the wake is expanding. It is at a slow rate but it has gotten wider and wider. “Data reported.
“Do you believe that this will continue ?”Jack asked. “I do ! “Worf announced. “If it continues at the current rate it will envelop the alpha qudrent within filthy earth years.”data said .
“Will the same thing occur in our universe?”bill asked.”I cant give you a definitive answer but I am prety sure the answer is yes!”data said.
“Is this preeminent?”Bill asked .”we have no way to know but I suspect the answer is yes. At least for quite some time. It is probably like any other deluge! There are always as humans call them scars!”data reported.
“Can you find an area not under the curse of the Gray field?”Jack asked. “The closest is the Pendleton sector. !”Worf announced.
“In our reality that is home to star base 345. Hopefully it is in there space as well.
Plot a course helm!”Jack ordered. “Aye sir!”gordi responded.the enterprise went to warp.

“At least three star syistoms have become a waste land. ” the tech announced. “We have lost so Manny ships. “Commander qunceros said. “We have incoming. It has a star fleet warp signniture however it is not any vessel we have on fille. “A com tech said.
“Do you have a visual?”the commander asked. “Yes I do!”the tech said. “Lets see it!”qinceros ordered.
On the screen,the image of a gigantic starship was displayed. “That is like no other ship we have in the fleet. “Qunceros reported.
“The ships call letters is issued enterprise ncc 1701-d. “The science tech said. ” enterprise? The enterprise name was retired after the destruction of the enterprise b. .there will never  be another enterprise!”Qunceros commented.
“We are being hailed. “The tech said .”on screen !” the commander said. The screen was activated. On the screen was displayed the image Of the enterprise bridge.
“This is captain Jack crusher of the starship enterprise!”Jack said. “That is not possible. Jack crusher died 15 years ago.”Qunceros said.
“Orphil we are from a parallel realty. The deviation that has transformed part of your galaxy into a waste land has had effects on ours as well.”Jack said.
“Why should we trust you captain. Parts of the universe are gone. Why should we just accept your story ar face value?” the second in command asked. ”
“We are both Starfleet officers. We both took an outh to defend the federation and to be loyal to it. I take it very serious!”Jack said.
Argyile stepped out of the shadows.”come on Orphil. We need to help each other! We can’t do this alone!”Argyile said.
“You commanded the argonaught. The ship is missing, assumed destroyed “Qunceros said.”the arganought was destroyed. I saw the dibre. In my reality I was a chief engineer. I naver became a starship captain. ” Argyile said.
“This is hard to believe.”the commander said.” “I understand. We need your help. We have to work together. “Jack said.
The commander found all this hard to take. “Is any of this possible ?”the commander asked. “Theoreticaly yes. It is possible but quite improbable!”the tech said.
“Orphil I know this is all very hard to take in but we don’t have a lot of time. “The chief engineering officer said.
The starbase commander considered his next move. “Captain you May come down. We will fully cooperate. “The commander said. “Thank you commander. We will be right down!”he said. “Please bring commander argyile with you. “The station commander said.

The captain,first officer and the chief enginer emerged inside the command center. “Hello big!”qinqeros said. “It is good to see you Orphil. I gues we are friends In the other reality as well !” the commander said “I don’t know about that!”he said in a jovial manner. The commander laughed.
“I have looked over the research you sent US. It does seam that the expense is expanding and will continue to expand!”the tech said.
“It destroys everything it touches?”the station commander asked. “Yes it does. As it expands it will destroy what it comes into contact with. It renders the area inert. ” the engineering officer said.
“Do we have options?”Jack asked.”I believe the first law of thermodynamics would suggest there is not however we could Break down it’s chemical component into a smaller form. “Data said.
“It is possible. We cannot totally stop the spread of this but we might be able to leson the affects. “The tech commented.
Jack got to thinking . he stepped back a bit. “There may be another option!”Jack declared. “What is that?” the commander said in a confused tone.
“I need to go to planet m145. “Jack said. “That is nothing on planet m 145!”a tech said. “That may not be true . in our reality there is a device that scans the time line and creates a psych profile of universe along with possible predictions. “Jack said.
“You want to Chase mythology?”the tech asked.”in our universe it exist. That is a fact. I believe there is a good chance it exist hear. It can be a help. ” Jack said.
Argyile suspected that Jack was two steps ahead of everyone else.he  knew he already had a plan. He suspected that he knew what his plan was. He suspected that it might work.
Planet m144
A.k.a planet Cousteau
In this reality,there was no colony. The enterprise entered and asummed a standard orbit.
Planet Cousteau
“Sure enough it is hear!”argyile declared. “You doubted me chief?” Jack asked. The chief laughed. “Mr. Data!”Jack ordered. The android went to the device and implemented several commands. The device activated and scanned the time line.
Images were seen. The star fleet engineering division headquarters. Then the me eating between various engineers and top brass. Then argyile working on the Argonauts class starship. Then the lunching of the vessel. Then other vessel of that class. Then smaller vessels with a similar philosophy were launched. Then there was the arms race. Thent the aliens nicknamed the lightning.
Then the device factored in Jack’s idea. It created a prediction of what could happen.
It showed images of the spreading Gray mass.  Planets starships. Also shown was various alien races trying to implore military solutions. The military solution only made things worse. Then images of the federation being disoved. The old member worlds trying to solve the crises on there own.
Then serious wars. Then the gray mass stopping. Not before enveloping most of the alpha quadrant. Then wars between refugees and races who don’t want them in there space. Then on ads becoming raiders and pirates. After a while Jack stoped it.
“I think I have seen enough!”Jack said. ” this varifies what we have feared. ” the chief said .
“Mr. Data I have another set of  calculations I want you to input!”Jack instructed him. “Of course sir!”the android said.

“Time travel ?”Bill asked. “Yes the only answer is to stop this before it started. This time line will spiral out of control. “Jack said.
“Why erase this time line?”yar asked. “The events won’t be contained in one reality. It will spread to our reality and probably to others as well!” Jack said.
“What would our objective be Jack?”Dr.  Crushed asked. “Stop the destruction of that ship. Stop the hostile ship from exploding !” Jack said.
“That is a tall order! ” gordi said. “Yes it will lt. We have no other choice. It might not work. It Will spread out if control. We don’t need the Cousteau device to tell us that. We already can figure out where this will go. ” Jack said.
“I think your right. I think it is a long shot but it could work!”the chief said. “Ok Mr. Data set the ship for time warp. Lets secure the future by saving the past. ” Jack ordered.
“Captains log we are preparing the ship to go back in time. Our gaol is to stop the destruction of the alien dreafnaught and hopefully stop the creation of the spacial wasteland. “He said.
“Time warp computation complete. Ready at your command!”data announced. “Very good. Mr. Laforge make it happen !”Jack ordered.
The enterprise warped into the Sun. Then it went backwards .it went to the past.

“Captains log,we have discovered wreckage from what appears to be a federation ship. The odd thing is that there is no records of any federation starship being in this area. what is even more unusual is that the vessel is one that was never built so far as anyone is aware. ”

“I am confused. This was a design you came out with. It was never built?”captain crushed said. ” that is correct !” argyile said.
“Please tell me more chief! “The captain ordered. ” of course. It was twenty years ago. I was assigned to star fleet engineering division of starship development. ”
“It was a crossroads of sorts for the federation. While at the time we were technically at a time of hostility with the Klingon empire. It was more informal then anything else. The federation and the Klingon had little or no interaction at the time .”
“The federation had returned to it’s roots. It was buisy exploring the unknown. The fleet was aging. Star fleet wanted a new fleet. ”

Argyile was a lt. Jr grade. He was there with several orther  Jr officers.
“Alright people! Star fleet wants to expend our deep space probe of the galaxy. We want to continue to bodily go where no one has gone before. To do that we need a new generation of starship. We want you all to come up with designs for a new starship. We want your best idea !” admiral Iverson said.
“There were several of us who ‘re chosen to design a starship.this included some of the future stars of the fleet. We all worked hard.
“We want your very beat ideas. You could be shaping the future of star fleet. “Commander Anthony Haftel said.
Outside.
“Orphil why do I think you have half a ship already in your mind?”a younger argyile asked. “I do. I assume you do too!”lt. Orphil qunqeros said. “Heck I have a whole ship in mind. “Argyile said. “I a not surprised !”he said.
“I spent mounths on it. Many a sleepless night. I was so excited to work on it. Ideas kept coming and coming. When I had completed the project, I was excited to present it to star fleet. ”

The model was brought in. The table cloth was removed. “Ladies and gentleman I give you the u.s.s. Argonauts. The argonaught is eauped with a sansor array independent from all other sysisyom. The vessel is designed for long term exploration. The vessel will have a maximum warp speed of warp 9.2. The vessel only needs a crew of fithteen. The computer will control most ship’s syistoms. ”
“I have decided to model the ship after vessels before star fleet . the ship’s are striped down. There are few amenities. This will free up power consumption. This will alow us to cover more ground. ” argyile said.
“Why go striped down,why not go big?”commander haftel asked.”I believe I have gone big. This ship will be fast and efficient.”argyile said.
“I understand that lt but in a long mission, is not a crew entitled to some amenities?”admiral lesitor asked.
“Star fleet missin do require some sacrifice. It serves a greater good I believe. It will make history. Of that I have no doubt. “The chief enginer said.
They asked a few more questions. He really thought that they would love his idea. After the questions time he knew that they were not going to chose his.
His good friend lt. Qinceros did not fare much better with his idea either. His idea was a large vessel. It could be characterized as a dread naught. His ship did not have a crew. It was a living . totally contoled by a.I.
“Lt. Argyile we like your idea. It is very impressive. It is not what we are looking for.we are looking for a luxury liner in space. Basically a city ship. A place for families. We want to have the maximum amenity given the desired duration of such a mission. “The admiral said.
“The ship is impressive but it is just not what we are looking for this misson. “Commander haftel said.
“Lt Qinceros we really  liked your idea. We are looking at manned operations right now. Whoever we do want to use some of your designs and technology in our new starships that are about to come down are road!”admiral lesitor said.
“They chose a starship called the universe class .the vessel was designed to be big and glorias. The vessel went though several changes. The vessel would be eventually the galaxy class. ” the chief said.
“What happened to your ship design?”the captain asked. “My designs went into my private archives.  The one I submitted to Starfleet probably is in memory prime. “He said.
“Could an alien race have stolen the blue prints and built there own version of it?”rycer asked. “It seams far fetched but I gues it is possible. “The chief said.
The captain could tell when his first officer had an idea.he got very quet. He tended to stroke his celeb shaven face. “Sir! What if there was a reality in witch your design was accepted and became part of the fleet?”the first officer asked.
“Are you talking parallel universe Bill?”the engineer asked. “The possible world’s theory dates that if an event happened in one universe,there has to be one in witch the opposite occurred.we know alternate realities excite. The enterprise under captain Kirk encountered an alien named lazerous and his counterpart. Then there was the universe in witch the federation was an intergalactic empire. There may be more realities. This could be one of them.” the commander said.
“You really think that there is a universe that my ship was used in the fleet?”argyile asked. “If you believe the possible world’s theory  there would have to be. “Jack said.
“Alright let’s say there is a universe where the argonaught existed . How did it get hear?” the chief asked.
“The situation with the two Lazarus was caused by some kind of disturbance. The encounter with the mirror universe was caused by an ion storm. It could have been brought hear. “Bill said.
“I have heard that it has been said that there is a way to scan quantum signatures. “The captain said. “Yes I know the technique.”the chief said.
“Get with Mr. Data. Check the debris quntrum signature. If we can verify that it is from another reality. Then we can try to determine how it got hear!”Jack said.
“If it is from another reality. I wonder was it destroyed hear or in it’s reality of origin!”the chief asked.
“It could be an important question in all of this!”the captain said.
Planet
Jack emerged on the planet. He went over to where a team was. The team included the chief engineer and the android commander. “Sir! We have concluded the scan of the ship”s quantum signature. We have determined that it is from a separate reality. “Data reported.
“That explains that. Now we have one mystery solved. It has Springed  several more. ” Jack said.
” I want to scan the General vicinity for  any sign of an inter-dimensional  instability. I want to find the source of this incursion. I want the Debra brought to the ship. I want to get underway as soon as possible!” Jack ordered. The crew agreed.

Notes
Lt. Qinceros is the future commander Qinceros. He was the commander of the starbase in “100001” the episode with the bynars. He was played by gene dynansky who also appeared in tos episodes,”muds women”and “Mark of gideon “the name Orphil was not mentioned or air. It appeared in the star trek the next generation companion. They probably got it from the script.
Commander haftel is the future admiral haftel. He was seen in “the offspring ” he was played by Nicholas coaster best known for his role on the soap Santa Barbra. In the episode he commanded the daystorm annex.
The events of the original series are the same in this reality. All of the events are the same until the death

“Mystery ship”

Previously on star trek the Jack crusher chronicles.
The q a mysterious race is confused as to why there is no time line where Jack crusher did not die on an away mission. The q created one.
In this reality,it was Jean luc Picard not Jack crusher was killed.crusher rose to the rank of captain. It was crusher who rose to command the u.s.s. enterprise.
The asana invades a seemingly unimportant planet in federation space. The federation pushed the asana out. They discovered a mysterious device on the planet.
And now tonight episode.
U.s.s enterprise
Lt.commander argyile the chief engineering officer always got up at 0300. He showered ,eat breakfast and read the news feed from the core of engineers with a cup of coffee.
This was a morning ritual for the enginer .he then got ready.he made sure to arrive in the engine room before his senior day staf arrived.
He greeted the night staf. He got a report from the night watch duty officer. He went to his office. He wished that he did not share the office with the night supervisor.the overnight supervisor rearranged his desk. He never clean up after his Sun flower seeds.
He liked to hang out in his office before his shift oficialy begun.he tried to be all ready to go when day watch began.
Then the day operation staf began to arrive. Then the shift change accrued. He called the Sr staf to huddle near the engines. “Ok people! Our mission is mostly a scientific research mission. The area is remote and planets are pree warp. What is argyile rule of starship missions? “He asked.
Assistant chief enginer Singh rose up to answer. “A routine scientific research mission always end in a space battle!”Singh said .”yes it does ! I want to prepare for a battle .I know it’s coming!”the chief said.
Then they got to work. Things went smoothly. The chief ran a tight ship but he was jovial as well. He was well liked and respected. They knew what to expect. He expected much but if you delivered you receive high praise if you did.
Bridge
The day watch had taken over on the bridge as well. Lt. Commander data got right to work.he was at the science station. He scanned the area. After pain staking work he believed that he had found something.
He made sure. He checked and rechecked. More detailed scan revealed something  he never expected to find. He had the computer read an several times.
“Captain I believe I have found something of interest. Also quite a mystery. ” data said.
Captain crusher ,and commander Rycer got up from the command horse shoe and went to the aft part of the command center. “I have located matilic mass on the surface of am uninhabited planet.the aloys are consistent with star fleet construction materials. ” data said.
“That’s not possible! I thought this area has never been explored by star fleet?”lt. Gordi laforge remarked. “To my knowledge it has not! “Data answered. “You can confirm that it is a federation starship ?”rycer asked. “Yes commander I can. It is a federation vessel!”the android commander informed the first officer.
“We have a mystery on our hands!”Deana troy said.”indeed we do counselor. I don’t sapose you can Spence an physical echo from the crew?”Jack asked. “No that is not how my abilities work.” Deana told him. “I see!”he said.
“Can you determine the cause of the crash?”rycer asked.”I am detecting evidence of plasma biased weapons! It isd similar to Romulan design but is different. I think that we can rule out the Romulan.”data said.
“I think we need to probe it further ?”Jack suggested. “I have no objections captain!”Bill said. “Mr .laforge take us to the planet!” Jack ordered.  Enterprise headed to the planet.
End of the prologue .
Notes
Chief engineer argyile only appeared in two episodes. “Where no one has gone before ” and”datalore” his air time was fairly limited. That is not a lot of information on him. He was played by buf Yeager.
Asistent chief enginer Singh appeared in “lonely amount us” in that episode he was killed. Sense this is a different reality he need not necessarily endure that same fate.

Under star fleet poetical,when there are more then one ship involved in a situation,the commander of the largest vessel commands the mission. In the absence of the enterprise,the next in line was the ambassador class vessel horatio. With crusher gone,captain walker keel was in command.
“Captain! Incoming message from the enterprise, they are about to procede. “The tactical officer said. “Ok order the fleet to stand by. It is almost time!”keel said.

Cave.
“Sir! The order just came in !”Lois said. “Send the planetwide order. There is no turning back now. “It will be a shamefull matter for the king if these men die badly'”Robert said. “Funy I don’t think I have ever heard you quote Shakespeare. “Lois observed. “It seams to apply.maybe Jean luc rubbed off on me more then I want to admit!”Robert said.
All over the planet,the rebellion began in Ernest. The population of the colony staged massive protest of the occupation. While the protes were non violent,the people involved knew that the response of the occupation force would be anything but.
While the occupation had been benevolent,the comfortable of slavery was still slavery. The asana were erratic.they were unstable. They were whimsical. They were touchy. The most inconsiqencial act of unintentional disrespect could be misinterpreted as an insult and be answered with disporticional retribution. The ovulation had to be dealt with now.
In orbit the enterprise went to  maximum warp. The vessel used the gravity of the secondary Sun to be propelled to the planet. It took percison flying by gordi. While word at one of the science station activated the em pulse data and yar had designed.
The pulse eminated to all corners of the planet. The enterprise then got out of the way. It went to warp. The ship left the orbit of the planet quickly.
Government complex
“There is a massive indirection all over the planet!”the second in command informed Keriek. “I sm declaring a planet wide insurrection…”the leader said. Before the admiral termed emperor and military governor could get out the rest of his order,the room went dark.
Keriek was very angry at this development. “Report!”the admiral demanded. ” excelentcy! The power is off line. I believe it may be planet wide!”a tech reported.
How could this have happened? The admiral was astonished. They had believed they considered every contingent. What they had not factored in there evasions was the creativity of an android lt commander named data.
All over the planet the power was out the rebellion was In full swing. The occupation force was overwhelmed . This was only the beginning.

“The Planet is almost totally dark Sir. Mr. Data ‘s plan appears to be sucesfull. “Yar reported. “Did you doubt me lt?”data said. “No! Of course not commander!”she replied.

“We are instructed to go In!”the tactical officer informed the captain. “Order the fleet to move out! The time is now!”keel said.
The ships moved out. The fleet had everything from frigates to ambassador class. The fleet was impressive. So was the asana.
Asana flagship
“Federation fleet is moving out. They are heading on a direct intercept course for us!”the sandor tech reported.
“Break formation. Intercept that fleet!”captain hirjez ordered. The ship broke formation.the asana ship plotted an intercept course of there own. The two fleet headed straight for each other.
The u.s.s renegade got off the first shot. The frigate fired a full volley of photon torpedoes. The torpedoes smashed into the nearest enemy warship. Two warship fired on the renegade. The Thomas pain dodged there fire. The renegade narrowly escaped a fire ball.
The battle was in full force. Both sides engaged the orther. Both sides inflicted heavy casualties on the orther.
A New orlions class vessel was sliced In half by a asana warship. The vessel then exploded. The warship was hit by the hood.
On the planet,the asana could nit use there ground based mistle or there air based vessels or equipment. Using hand phaser and rifles they did just as much damage. They shoot anything that was not asana. They used there weapons at budings.it was not as efficient as bombs or mistles but it worked.
It was not as deadly as it could be. It was deadly enough. As an early 21st century earth professor Seth widgets on observed ,”dead was dead” unfortunately there was plenty of that.
Thanks to chief argyile a dampening field was established. It stoped at least temporarily any more ships coming though via a wormhole.
This was the first battle waged by star fleet since the timed incident in the early days of the 24th century. The federation may be a little rusty but was ready. The federation and enemy forces were just about evenly matched.
The federation had home field advantage. They knew the terrain. This was there home. This was personal.the colony was family. Though many of the crew had no ties to the commonest,none of that mattered.
Several ships had been destroyed. Many more were damaged. The star fleet had taken out several
Of the enemy as well.
“We have to get pass the enemy lines. Order all ship’s to get pass the battle lines. The uss renegade tried to get pass the blockade. The vessel went up and down. The shipping though. Several ships followed though.
The asana fleet was overwhelmed. The enterprise headed to the Planet. Several ships headed to the enterprise. Several scout ships covered them.
“Send to enemy fleet! Order them to surrender!” Jack said. He hoped that the asana would not be fool hardy. There was no way they could hold this world. That did not mean they would just Give it away.this could get berry bloody very fast. The ball was now in the asana’s court. What would there next move be?
To be continued.

Jack of all trades part five

“Captains log,it seams that my life is coming full circle. Several years ago I lost a friend and colegue captain Jean luc Picard.back then I spoke to his brother . now once again we are coming face to face. ”
“I am not sure witch part of this mission I am dreading more. Facing the asana fleet or facing colony governor Robert Picard ”
In the cave,Robert headed into the light. Robert looked Jean luc over.they had only met once. Both had left a lasting impression on the orther. ”
Jack looked over Robert.he looked older.it was the same man. “Governor Picard! It has been a long time?” “Jack crusher said. “It has captain. I see you have been promoted. “The governor  observed. “Yes I have”Jack said.
Jack found it very uncomfortable.  He got where he was because of Jean Luc’s death.  When Jean luc Died,Jack was given command of the u.s.s stargazer.   Then after the. Stargazer was lost and presumed destroyed , despite a. Brief sebatical. From. Starship command.,Jack. Became. Prominent on the short list of potential commanders of a galaxy class starship. And eventually captain of the enterprise d.  Jack felt that had Picard lived he would. Probably. On the short list to command the enterprise.
“I wondered if you might be the one to show up. “Robert said. “We don’t take kindly to incursion into our space. We especially do not invasion. This seams like s job for the flagship of the federation. “Jack told him.
“The asana took no chances. They brought a heavily armed fleet. My people were discrete but thorough. “Robert Saud.
An aid gave the captain a pad. He took it. “This information will be very valuable thank you! Jack said.”I assume the fleet is near by! The governor said.
“It is. The plan us this. We want to want to wage a multi prong plan. Our plan is to bounce of the planets secondary Sun and. Cause a momentary emp and create a planet ride power outage. Hear Is the hard part. I need a planet ride revolt. I think you know what this means. I’m asking you a lot. I don’t have an estimate for casualties amoung the civilian population but I expect it to be very high. “Jack said.
Robert thought it over. As governor he was responsible for the health welfare and safety of the colonest. Before today it had been an easy task. Scrapes and brushes and calises we’re the major concern. Now he faces mass casualties.
” once the power is out and the revolt has begun,the fleet will move in. If all things we’re eaquil the federation fleet would easily overwhelm the asana occupation force and retake the planet. The problem is the wormholes .we have no defence yet from them. They could send In more ships!”Jack said.
“Why go to all this trouble? This is a farming colony in a remote region. “Lous said.
“We don’t know. It makes no seance I agree. Once we have secured the planet we Will make sure we get to the bottom of this. I know I am asking a lot. I need your support governor.we cannot hope to accomplish the mission without your help. “Jack said.
“I am a farmer. A vineyard grower. I never wanted to be a politician or sn administrator. I wanted a new challenge. Lois hear convinced me to go along with this crazy scheme. Now I am left with an awfull choice. Virtuel slavery or mass casualties. Most of the colonest have been with the project from it’s very inception. Some were friends of my one I knew sense my chimdhood. Others have become friends really family . sense we arrived I have seen kids become young adults marry and have kids of there own. This is home . we are a family. Now I will watch as citizens colegues friends family die. This is way beyond  everything I can handle. ” Robert said.
“I know that governor. Both these options are bad. I agree. We cannot ignore this. “Jack said.
“I know that captain. You Will have my support and the support of my people! You have sacred task captain. We are pledging everything. If this fails there is no where else for us to go. We are putting everything on the line. Do not let us down. “Robert said.
“I won’t. You have my word. “Jack said. “No offense but I will hold you to it. “Robert said.
After several strategy seasons and other discussions,the crew headed back to the scout craft.
Lous came out. Jean luc told the crew to head on. Jack went over to Lois.
“You will have to forgive Robert. People skills have never been his strong suit. “He said.”it is good to finally meat you ,Jean luc spoke highly of you!”Jack said.
“We got into a lot of trouble growing up. Nothing too serious. I do miss him. He spoke about you. It seemed you took my place out there!”Lous said .
“Jean luc was one if those people you never quite get over. If he were hear he would probably quote Shakespeare. Lois I know my responsibility. I know it is your people that will do most of the dying. I don’t look into that lightly. “Jack said.
“You don’t owe Jean luv anything. He did not consider his sacrifice a debt that had to be repaid. You don’t have to justify your life. I knew him like a brother. He would not ask that of you. You don’t have to cure the tarelien plaugue or negotiate peace between the Klingon and romulons. He would probably kick your but for thinking that way!” Lois said.
“He would. “Jack said. “I know you will come though for us. Not to pay some imaginary debt but because that us who you are. That is the man Jean luc knew you to be. That is the man I am fairly certain you are. “He said .
Jack said his goodbyes. He went back to the craft. He closed the hatch . “lift off Mr. Data !” Jack ordered. The craft left.
Capital city of Mitterrand
Goverment complex
“The federation fleet is Just on the other side. They have amassed everything from syidny class ,Robert,miranda,neba,new Orleans,excelsior and ambassador. “An aid said.
“There have been some odd emissions from the Sun’s. I believe that star fleet may be conducting renonisence missions perhaps even meeting with colony officIal. ” another commander said.
“Jack crusher! He is behind it!”kernel said. “The enterprise Is not involved in the fleet. “Another said. “Jack is hear. It is a destiny to confront each other. One of us will triumph,the other will be dead. “Keriek said.
“We must locate Robert picard and the orther  leaders. We need to have massive crackdown . “captain derex said.
“Not yet. Any crackdown will accelerate action by star fleet. We must be patienct. The battle will acur soon enough!” Keriek said.
“The cabinet and key m.p are insisting you return to asana prime. You are not a. Admiral any more. You are president ,emperor. You must return home!”Derek said.
“No ! I control my own destiny! I will not watch the battle from the home world. I did not seize control of the asana empire to hide in my office. I will lead our people to victory. Tell the cabinet ministers that I will return when the empire is secure. Not before. Remind them that most of them we’re back benches or so far at the bottom of civil service that 80 percent of our population had to die before they were In the line of sucesion. “Keriek said.
Keriek dismissed the advisors And commanders. They quickly left the office. “Why do you risk alienating your ministers and General staf. We need there support. “Jurome his chief of staf said.
“I am the chosen of the jurendra. I need no one but them. None of them are loyal to me or the empire. There loyalties are to the.ages.they would sell me out In a heart beat. They would sell out there families to save themselves. They have no love for me nor I for them. They see me as k see them a means to and end. Nothing more. There will come a time when it will come down to either them or me and I won’t hesitate to dispose of them before they dispose of me.the future does not belong to them. It does not even belong to me. It is the jurendra. “Keriek declared.
“Of course Excellency!” Jerom said.
U.s.s enterprise

“I was beginning to worry!’bill said. “Not to worry number one ,I know what I am doing!”Jack said. “Of course sir. “Bill said .
“The colony is on bored. Mr. Data stand by the e.m. lt. Yar before we deploy it I need to send the message now using the code we agreed apon. “He said. “Understood!” she Said.
Later
Bridge
Everything is in place sir! ” Bill said. “Adres intercraft!”Jack ordered. “Your on sir!”yar said. “Attention all decks all divisions this is the captain. The mission of star fleet is one of peace and exploration. As a late friend of mine often reminded me star fleet is not a military organization. In s case of attacks we are empowered to defend ourselves and our protecorates. Today we put it all on the line. For the colony below it is everything. We can retreat they cannot . we don’t know how far the asana will go to hold on to the planet. We must assume that they will go scorched earth If they have to. End!”Jack said.
“Chanel closed!”yar reported. “Mr. Laforge take us out. Mr. Data procede!”Jack ordered.

“Brothers in arms ” part two

Coustea
Command post
“The perimeter alert is going off!”a tech said. “Can you identify what it it?”the commander asked. The tech worked on the identifying the alert.
In orbit,the wormhole oppened. Several ships large to smal excited the wormhole.
“Sir! It is a wormhole!”the tech reported. “Send a distress call all channels. Send a code w!”the commander ordered.
“I have identified the vessels. They are asana !”a second tech announced. “Inform the governor !”the commander said.
Asana flagship
Bridge
“Begin targeting setilites and orbital devices!”admiral kernel ordered. The asana vessels opened fire on all setilites and orther devices in space. The asana was able to easily eliminate the setilites and other devices. The asana was able to take control of the stars with little challenge. 
Home of Robert and Marie Picard.
The colony was stil in the development phase. There was no official governor’s mension. The picards lived at a vineyard he personally owned. Picard hoped to avoid establishing an extensive bureaucracy.
“Sir! The asana has begun an attack above our space! We have confirmed it Is the asana!”Lois said. “Have we sent a multi planetary distress call?”Robert asked. “Yes we have. We sent it on as many chanels as we could think off!” “alexi an aid said.
“I want a planetary alert! I want a full planetary sate of emugentcy. I want to deploy our police forces for defense purposes only!”Robert ordered.
The planet was mostly an agriculture colony. The planet was not in a disputed area.it was in the heart of the federation. There was no orbital base. The colony had no military only a police force.
The governor advised everyone to stay in there homes. The governor did not have the resources to deploy patrols to every college and communities.
The governor and his staff knew that the planet was a sitting duck.the only hope was the intervention of star fleet. Could they arrive in time?
The asana ships then focus on ground defences .the planet was only lightly defended. The asana hit the few command and control centers the planet had.
“Ready to send ground trips!”the first officer reported. “Do it!”keriek ordered.
All over the planet,the asana marines emerged . they quickly worked to secure the capital .
U s.s enterprise
Holowdeck
Captain crushed and her family was having a picnic in the holowdeck. They had recreated his family home in Illinois.
Dr. Crusher  was feeding the baby. Jack was throwing the football with his sons and daughter. Leslie often felt outnumbered having two brothers. Now she had a sister but
Right now she was stil a baby. She was both a tome boy and girlie at the same time.
Bevily knew that Wesley was going to go into star fleet probably as a command or starship operations officer. Now it steamed that Leslie would go into star fleet as well in command or operations. Her orther son was four and Hannah was a baby so maybe they would not peruse such a dangerous occupation.
Wesly in many ways was her kid. He wanted to follow in jack’s footsteps. His first toy was a model of a federation constilation class starship. He reverse enginered an old com badge when he was six. Leslie and Wesley made a bridge scene in the living room. Bev knew she was out numbered. She would say to Jack,”Tom abd Hannah are going to be doctors !”
Bevily looked over her family. She realized she had everything she wanted. Her parents died when she was young. She was raised by her grandmother. Her first love was a boy maimed stefen who never knew she excited.she dreamed if having a husband, children. Odd the love of her life was a star ship captain. She married James t Kirk and it worked.
There was always the fear that Jack would eventually use up his nine lives he steamed to have. On earth in 1960,movies were made depicting British spy James bond . they kept replacing him with new actors. Even after the post atomic hotter.bond appeared in some form. In the real world you can’t just replace someone . she feared his time would run out. Mayby some day he would become an admiral or an ambassadors. Would he and then what if Wes and Leslie followed in his footsteps?
“Bridge to captain Crusher!”commander Rucker said over the intercom. The captain tapped his com badge. “Go ahead Bill ! “Jack said. “Your needed on the bridge. Prority one ! Rycer informed him. “I will be right up! “He told him.
“I know duty calls!”she said. He kissed her and then left. Jack then headed out of the hollow deck. She always feared one of these days he would never come back.
Bridge
“Captain on the bridge!”yar said “what do we have ?”Jack asked. “The planet Cousteau us under attack. It Is the asana !”rycer asked. “Cousteu is deep in federation space! There have been several false alarms by tech with itchy fingers. Are you sure this is real ?”Jack asked.
“We lost all contact with the planet. Before they we got visual contact. It was an asana task force. “Tar said. “The ship in command is the vessel that has been commanded by kernel believed to be the da fecto head of sate for the asana . “worf. Said.
“Cousteu is a fairly insignificant planet. It is remote and not in a strategic area or a major trade route. “Deans said. ”
“I assumed they used a now famous worm hole ,”Jack asked .”they did!”yar informed him. “Why is kernel for all intense and porpoises There president attacking an unimportant world?”Deana asked.
“Do we have orders from Starfleet?”Jack said .”despite it’s  remote location it is in federation space. It loss woukd give an agresive race a foothold in our territory. We are to head for the planet Gaul to meet up with the rest of the fleet. They want to lunch a counter offensive as soon as posible”yar said . “something is up ! They have something up there sleeve!”gordi commented.
“It smells of an ambush Mr. Laforge I agree. We can’t let them occupy any federation world.we have to answr what is an act of war. “Jack said. “Of course!”gordi said.
“Alright gordi set course for the Gaul system. Maximum warp. “Jack ordered. The blind helm officer plotted the course. “Course plotted and engaged sir!”the amiable Jr officer reported.
“Ok I want batle drills ! I want simulated ship battle as well as mock boarding and ground combat.” Jack ordered. “I will make it happen !”the first officer said .
Jack was concerned. He did not like it. He was certain that gordi’s asestment was mostlikly correct. They had to act.
“Mr. Data what do you know about this planet?”Jack asked. “The colony was started by a group based on earth. They used teraforming and traditional methods. It is mostly an agricultural colony but there is some research as well. The colony has a colonial legislature and a governor. The current governor is Robert Picard formerly of Lavare  France on earth. His brother was a star fleet officer!”data said.
Jack froze. The memories of his old friend came flooding back. He saw his friend on the bridge.then he saw the fateful away mission. Then meeting Robert. Then he saw the dream. He saw himself under the sheet.
“Are you ok captain?”Deana asked.”yes of course!”he answered.Deana was not totally sure that he was ok. She decided not to press the issue. At least not now.
The enterprise mantaned warp .the ship headed for the planet under attack.time was of the essence.  Time was running out.
