“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.

Q in the life part seven

The enterprise was able to disperse the lightning bolt. “Could this be some kind of life form?” gordi
asked.”I am not sensing anything from it. It May just not be transmitting in a form I can process!”Deana reported.
“This hardly seams like random . it seams even more then instinctive!”yar commented.”agreed.”Jack said.
Q decided to hold his peace. He knew what was going on but decided not to say any thing. He did not want his identity revealed.
“I am attempting to contact the life form. I am sending out a General transmission. “She said.
Sudenly she was some kind of trance. She saw a bright Gray wall. She did not see anything. Se heard a voice. “Unatural must not be!” the choice said.
The room shock like an earthquake.”am I not unnatural. Is. My abilities! What is unatural?”Deana asked. “No not you! You acceptable!”the voice said.
“What .. Who is unaceptible?”Deana asked.

“The brain! The control. The controller is disease. He is perversion. “The voice said.
“You mean the captain?”Deana said.”the one called Jack!”the voice said. “The captain !why are you against our commanding officer?”the counselor asked.”must not be! Desease,contamination. Unatural!”the voice insisted.
“All bodes must have brains. He control the body called enterprise. “Deana said. “No not him. Another can control. Not him. “The voice said.
“A’s log,Jack crusher serviving changed key events. The asana. Checked the Cardesiens.the asana were able to free the jurandra. The wormhole technology has somehow aroused the suspison of non humanoid races. They can somehow detect temporal abnormalities. While my taking human form aroused the celamerane,the wormhole did so with  captain crusher. ”
“For some reason this particler  creature or whatever it is is not willing to accept the presence of captain crusher. Can this entity be persuaded to leave captain crusher alone.”
Q stoped time. He snapped his fingers. He was inside the gravity well creature. “Q! I should have known you would be behind this!”the creature said. 
” why are you so opposed to this? He is one man! Surely one man cannot affect you that adversely ! I don’t see why you are so concerned by his existence.”q commented.
“This monstrosity cannot be! Jack crusher must die!”he insisted. “It has already happened. What difference does it make now? Let this reality play out. It is one reality in a vest multi verse. “Q said.
“It should have never been! This was your doing! You q can’t leave things alone. “The creature said.
“What would you have me do? Kill Jack now? Things are already in motion. The asana ascendant .the jurendra reaserting themselves. Do you want to destroy this universe. Go back and have crusher die? “Q asked.
The creature considered it. “This is your mess q! You created this! Your arogence. You will solve it. If you do not I will! My patience is not infinite. Act quickly!” the creature said .
Q returned to the bridge of the enterprise. Q went to his station. Then he snapped his fingers and resumed time.
“Sir! The phynomina is gone! “Yar said. “It was like it was never hear!” word said. “Get us to a safe distance!”Jack ordered. The vessel went to warp.
“Detecting an asana wormhole !” worf reported. “Shields up! Red alert!”the captain ordered.  “We can’t get a break!”Jack said.
The worm hole opened up. A large mistle headed out. It headed for the enterprise.
“Mr. Data can you generates similar wormhole?”Jack asked. “Yes but without the exact formula,it won’t be stable . “data said. “That is fine but we need to move on quickly!”Jack ordered.
Data got up and went up to the aft station. He Sat down and got to work. An officer took over the ops station.
The mistle came at the mistle. Yar fired on the mistle. The mistle had advanced shielding.it dodged the phaser and photon torpedoes.
Worf activated the deflector dish.the dish powered up. The dish hit the mistle. The enterprise followed up with with phaser and photon torpedoes on the mistle.
The mistle serviced the multiple attacks. The mistle stil headed for the enterprise. Data was able to create another wormhole. The wormhole headed for the mistle. The mistle was enveloped. The enterprise hit the vortex.the vortex and the mistle exploded.
“Mr. Laforge get us as far away from hear as possible !”Jack ordered. “No objection hear!”he said.
The enterprise went to warp.
Q continued to function until the end of the day watch. Then he left the ship. He would not be a stranger.

Q in the life part six

“Some people could care less how the universe works. It is enough that it does. Others are curious. Some people want to know everything. What they can’t figure out they sugest how it could be. Regardless if it can proven or disproved”
“Manny wonder how a q pass there time. Some find creative ways to use there time. Like humanoids some q are very curias. One q decided to study different realities. ”
“Lets for identification purposes call her a she. She focused in on one person. Jack crusher. On earth a philosopher with way too much time on his hand postulated that for every action there had to be a possible world I’m which the opposite accrued. ”
“That did not not ring true for Mr. Crusher. She discovered that in the vest multi verse Jack crusher ways dies or is insignificant. He never plays a major role in galactic affairs. If bevily played s major role,it was after his death,divorce ,they never met or never got involved. She found jack was virtually  the only individual to which this was true.  ”
“She began to suspect outside manipulation. Another q decided that sense there was no universe in which Jack crusher played a major role in the universe ,he would create one that did. ”
“Up until the incident where Jack was killed saving Jean luc Picard,everything was the same. A duplicate of the prime universe if you want to use that termnogy. I guess I will for the shake of this discussion. ”
“The q did not anticipate that for crusher to play an important part in the universe ,Picard had to die. His death was a a catilist in Jack’S accession. Jack then became captain of the stargazer”
“The q believed that history would be largely the same as it was in lizards time line. I. Many ways it was. Then the assna defeated the Cartesian union. Everything was th same. Somehow the rise of Jack crusher and the asana imperial union is connected. ”
“So why am I interested In this? My first instinct is to let q clean up his own mass. The q saw it differently. We were going to make this reality up happen. It seams the q are no longer in charge of this galaxy. Who is is not clear. Perhaps the jerandra,perhaps someone else. ”
“That is why I am hear. It is a short of fact finding misson if you will. It is not going quite as planned. ”
Ready room
“Bill I wanted to speak to you in private!” Jack said .”of course sir!”Rycer said. “Bill I can’t help but think that Mr. Quin is somehow connected to th a mysterious energy creature. I have no proof but I think it!” Jack told him. “I had a thought about. That myself. There is something unusual about him.”Jack said.
“It might not be him. It might be nothing. I don’t know. Something is off. That I know !”Rycer said. “I agree with you there!” Jack said.
“All senior officers to the bridge. Captian and first officer to the bridge.”the voice of data was heard over the intercraft.
“Always something!” Jack commented. “Seams so !”the captain responded. The two left the ready room and entered the bridge.
“Captian on the bridge!”data said. “Report!  ” Jack ordered. ” “we are receiving a distress call form a deriterian vessel. They say they are caught in some kind of gravity weld!”yar said.
“There has not been any reports of gravity wells in this religion”data said. “Neve stoped unexplained phynomina before!”gordi exclaimed. Everyone give him an odd look. He did not say anything in response.
“Do you have the coordinance Mr.laforge?” Jack asked. “I do. Lt. Yar has sent it to me. “Gordi reported.”lay in the coordinates and Engage. Tasha inform the vessel we are on our way!”Jack ordered. “Course engaged!”gordi reported. “Mesege sent!”yar reported.
The large city In space went to warp. The vessel was off. The ship headed for the vessel in distress.
The deriterian vessel was about to fall into the gravity well. It was able to dodge the gravity well.it was close. It was only a matter of time before the ship was enveloped by this phynomina unless there is Intervention.
“We can’t keep this up forever!” the enginner commented. “I know that. This is all we can do for now!”the captain said.
The enterprise d flew by. “Stand by tractor beam !”Jack ordered.”tractor beam standing by. “Yar reported. The vessel went in. Th ship engaged the beam on the alien vessel. The enterprise caught the vessel. Mr.laforge took the ship into warp.
The two ships got clear of the gravity well. The ship stopped and released the beam. “The ship sends there thanks. “Yar said. “Tell them that it is our pleasure. “Jack said.
“Something is wrong. “Deana said. “What is it d?”Bill asked. “I am not sure ! I Spence something is off. Something is wrong!” She said. Sudrnly the gravity weld seam to go to warp. It headed right for them.
“We are being perused!”data reported. “By the gravity well?”worf asked .”believe it or not yes!”gordi reported. The gravity well did not peruse the other ship. Just the enterprise.
“Target the mouth of that thing. Stand by weapons!”Jack ordered. When the enterprise was in fireing range yar fired a massive volley of phasers and photon torpedoes on the arpiture. The enterprise tried to get away.
The gravity well neared the enterprise. The enterprise fired Everything they had at the gravity weld. The center of the weld fired some kind of lightning bolt. The ship tried to dodge the bolt. The enterprise dispersed the bolt.
To be concluded.
I did not want to explained the change in the time line quite yet. It steamed to make sense. The crew is not aware of it yet. I did not answer it completely . there are still some questioned yet to be answered.

Q in the life part five

“Q’s log,I am observing the enterprise during a pivotal mission . during that misson I became fully human in order to fool a medical scan. While I did fool the scan,it did not fully alleviate the concerns of some sceptical Sr. Officer. At the same time ,it aroused the suspicion of a creature that does not particularly like me. Now the creature has arrived and he is not happy!”
The creature hit the ship with an energy beam. The entire ship was moved around. The ship turned around back. The entire crew was jostled about. ”
“We are at all stop!”gordi reported. Diana continued to try to contact the creature. “It is convinced we are allied with an enemy. A tormentor. I am trying to convince him orther wise but he will not believe me!” Deana exclaimed.
“Why does he think we are allied with it’s enemy!”Rycer said. ” good question Bill. One I wish I knew the answer to. “Jack said.
The ship was hit by another energy beam. The ship’s shields held together. The ship was hit again.
“See if you can ask him what it will take to convince Him to back off?”Jack asked. “I am asking him. He says we have to get rid of of his enemy. Captian I believe he think his enemy is on the ship!”Deana said.
“I am aware of the make up of the crew. If one of there species had a conflict with a space dwelling life form,I am unaware of it. ” data said. “There are myth of space born life forms attacking Klingon. There are not similar to this creature!”word said.
” it is convinced that it’s enemy is on the ship ! “Deana said.” it believes we are allied with it. ” Jack said. ” this is very odd. “Bill said.
“Should we raise ships ?”yar asked.”negative. I don’t want to make the situation worse!  Jack said.
“The calamereane are not very forgiving . it is not clear what it hopes to accomplish. .so long as I an in my current form it is not a threat to me. It has most likely figured out that it a threat to the enterprise. If it cannot harm me it will kill them. I cannot let that happen. I am not sure I can intervene and not have my cover blown. It was a difficult choice. If the enterprise was destroyed it might make an asana victory more likely. That would be horrible for the galaxy”
“My mission was to observe. My satus in the continuum was already tenuous. I was not ready to sacrifice the enterprise quite yet. ”
“I am detecting an unusual energy signature!”data said. A small hole developed in space. It started to get bigger and bigger.
“It does not seam to register on any of my scanners. “Data said. “Yet it is hear”gordi said. “It does seam to be!”data said.
“There are times I really don’t understand Mr. Data. In some ways I understand humans more then I understand him. I barely understand them. Data is a parculler one. ”
In the void was a doorway. The door ways started to oppen. The creature could feel the affect of it.
“The cellamerane Is fearful of a realm void of nothing. It dreads it more then anything. ”
“Cellamerane either you back off or I will send you into the oblivion you so fear. ” q told him.
The callamerane was being stages in to the abyiss. Finaly it relented. Q made the vortex go away.
“The creature is moving off!”yar reported. ” it says we Should not trust hi enemy. He stil thinks we are allied with his enemy .”Deana said.
“This is quite a misunderstanding. I have to wonder. A creature like that. I Would hate to run into his predictor. Whatever is a threat to him would be doubly so to us. “Gordi said.
“Amount the senior staff,Mr laforge was the most amenable. He was the most jovial. The universe could explode and He would still a crack a joke. ”
“The q can’t lose appendages. It is rare that parts of us rendered non functional. It is assumed that q are all powerful. We would like you to think that. We can sucomb to disease but is is rare. We keep that a closely guarded secret. ”
“I am still puzzled by this! He was adminent that we were working with his enemy. He seams like a highly intelligent being. I assume he has abilities we do not!”Bill said.
“Is it possible we have an intruder on bored ?”worf said. “We have no evidence that this creture is more advanced the us when it comes to intelligence. It could be acting on instinct. “Q as quin said.
“It is difficult for me to determine intelligence from just observation. I am reluctant to assume that it is a based life form then we are!”Deana said.
” Mr .worf scan the ship for any life form or anything out of the ordinary!” Jack said. “Are sir!”worf said.
“Of course he would not find anything. That would not stop him form looking. I feared captain crusher was not going to let this go. I did not reveal myself to them. Not yet. The existence of the continue in this reality had to be kept hidden. That I knew. ”
“One day we might reveal ourselves but it could not be today. Usually I disagreed with the continuum on many things. I was a free spirit. On this I did agree. This universe must function with us in the background.at least for now.”
Worf checked and rechecked but found nothing. There was nothing to find. Not that could be detected by the scanning equipment he was using. Lack of result would not put this issue to bed. It would frustrate them. It would further convince them that something was up. They would be more determined that there was a problem and was more determined to find it.q needed this to die down. That was not happening.
Ready room.
“I cannot find any evidence of any thing . that does not mean there is nothing. I just cannot detect it. “Worf said.
“Something is up ,I am sure of it!”Bill said. “Well I want to keep our eyes open. I don’t want to spend too much more time on it. I see no reason why we can’t get back to our mission. “Jack said. They agreed.
They dismished the meeting. Worf,Bill,Deanna and yar left the ready room. The door closed.
Jack had no idea what was going on. He was not sure what was going on. He suspected something was. If it was it would ber revealed soon enough.

Q in the life part four

” q log,it is assumed that enjoys taking humanoid form. We do it so often. It could not be further from the truth. We perfect our usual form. It is not always practical. Sometimes it is prudent for us to take solid form. This is one of those times. ”
“My mission was to observe. That mison was expended slightly. The mission was modified. That was not discussed until it was done . now the mission is back on track”
Sickbsy
“I had to take full human form for a minute. For a q it was an eternity. Dr. Crusher is very different in this reality. She is not as much a prude. In this reality her hubby did not die wile her son was still a baby. She was on her way to beat the dugarts .  not to mention pine away for a bald man who carer is vastly underated. I’m not saying. She seams normal hear. I like this bevily better.”
“Everything is as its should be!” Dr. Crusher told him. “I could have told you that. “Q told her. “I’m sure you could. ” She said.
“I decided to be a fly in the wall in the captains ready room. Not literly. Jack had the stargazer model. He did not have a fish. He had a pet hamster named phlox. He was not into arkeology. ”
“In the room was Rycer and bevily and troy. In this universe she wore a star fleet uniform and has not yet atepted the bun. Rycer is a dull as ever. Janeway would have been a better pick for number one. ”
“His reedings are fine! I see no cause for concern! “Dr. Crusher said. “”There is no reason he should have known that “Rycer said. “Some people have premonition.”Deana said. “He did save the ship.”Jack said.”I am not ungrateful. It is just odd. ” Rycer said.
“I could not believe how cautious will I mean Bill. There is no reason to be. I did save that ship witch I called got to the carpet for. We reer officers have to do something.”
“Well perhaps I will sit down and talk to him!”Jack said. “Great a pep talk with the captain,this ought to be fun! ” q thought. The meeting was dismissed.
“One thing q find so parculler about humans is the need to end endless meetings. If the universe were going to explode in five minutes,humans would hold a three minute meeting to discus what to do. ”
“We q know what to do. We don’t need to discus it. Q know how to deal with complex situations. Even when humans are certain of what they are going to do,they still hold a meeting just to be sure. Q are never ceased to be amazed by human behavior. ”
“Most of the crew is the same. I never spent much time with chief engineer argyile in the other universe. He played a fairly minor role in the other enterprise d. Hear he will be a much bigger player. He always seemed like a Scotty wannabe. ”
“In the other universe star fleet came up with this great idea. At least they thought so. The idea was that the galaxy class starship would have several chief engineers. Eventualy they decided to go with one . hear Jack put his foot down and they went with one. Admiral hildalgo refused to let Wesley be chief engineer. ”
“The players are known to me. Lt. Tasha yar is her charming self. I am tempted to warn her about gigtic talking oil slicks but I guess won’t. I always got the inpreson that she did not like me. Mayby it was because I put her in the penalty box that one time.”
“Data is hear. Data is much the same. The robot who wants to be human. Gordi is stil a helm officer.it is not clear if he will peruse the same carer path as he did in the reality known so well. ”
“I still have not figured what worf  does. I never understood why he was not made security officer to begin with. No offense to tasha. ”
“The asana has become are a regional power in the last few years. They have gobbled up everything in there path. They have been checked by the federation,tholiens,Breen,Klingon and romulons. It seems they are not content with existing borders.  It seams they are experimenting with New technology. “Jack said.
“I believe The recent attack was a test of this New weapon. The goal was to destroy us but the primary was to see if it could work.”data said.
“All wormholes have been known to be random. Ofte.n caused by engine malfunction or other damage to a ship. It seams that stable worm holes may be possible.”article said.
“How do we defend against  this. If they can generate it at will, anywhere could be vanerable  even teller,and or,Vulcan or earth! “Dr. Crusher said.
“Any attack on major worlds would most likely fail but they could attack dissent colonies or they could attack a major world for the demoarizng valley. A tactic similar to the do little raid on earth during there second world war. “Data said.  “This could represent a shift in war fare. “Worf said. “They could engage in a gurillia war fare. Soften us up then invade religions  near them !”yar said. “Make life so uncomfortable we give in to avoid further attacks!”gordi said.
“We have no idea if the asana will lunch more strikes on the enterprise. For now I want  to procede with our mission.”Jack said. From there they discused things that did not really interest q.
” on the enterprise,they seam to go from one crises to another. I would like to observe a quiet day day on the enterprise. Perhaps there is no such thing as a normal day on the enterprise. ”

“We have a perimeter alert!”word reported. ” the asana ?”Jack inquired. “Negative! It is not a ship. It appears to be some kind of energy life form. It is on the equivalent of high warp. “Yar reported.
“I Spence it is an very angry with us. It precedes us as a potential threat.”Deanna remarked.
“Keep shields and deflector off line. “Jack said. “Aye sir!”yar said.
“Aperently my breef  but annoying time as a mortal aroused the ire of the callamerane. It has come to pay a visit.”
“All stop!”Jack ordered. “Helm answering all stop!”gordi said. “This is personal. The creature is mad at us for a specific reason .”Deana said. “We have never encountered thus creature before. “Bill said.
“We are getting some kind of messege. The u.t is attempting to translate it but it is going to be very rough!”yar reported.
“Lets hear it!”Jack ordered. Yar activated the audio. “Big object ! You .. Enemy! Help enemy!  You me enemy!”the creature said. The enterprise was hit. The ship was jostled about. The ship tried to regain it’s cohesion.
“This was going to be fun. I could use my abities. I did not want to tip off the calamerane or the enterprise crew. I will wait and see how this all plays out !”
End of part four
Notes
This Is a bit snarky. Keep in Mind that this is from A’s perspective. This is how q sees the universe.
The comments about multiple chief engineers comes from picards comment to kasinky in “where no one has gone before” in season one we saw four different chief engineers. Lt. Commander Sarah mcdougal(naked now),lt. Commander article,(where no one has  gone before,datalore,)lt. Login,(arsinsonal of freedom)and lt.commander Leland t lynch (skin of evil”
The comment about Janeway comes from “the lost era,the buried age” witch Said that Picard considered Janeway for exo but she was unavailable.

Isn’t it romantic part 7

“Captain’s personal log,my wife,my best friend,the love of my life has been captured by a group of bounty hunters that work for a mining consortium. Working with the local authroities,we are ready to atempt a rescue mission. ” jack said in his log.
  The strike teams had prepared to move out. The egress to the forest area was fully sicured. A command post was set up.
Some would stay behind while orthers would move out. The goal was to use overwhelming force. They would seround the hostile emcampment then seize it. Every one knew it would not be that easy. While it seamed like it would be a cake walk but jack crusher and lt. Yar knew better.
“Are you ready?” Colnel ucrat asked. “Ready as i will ever be i supose!”jack said. “Lets do it!”yar said in response.
The swat team moved out. There were multiple units. Some were on foot. Others were in vehicles specificaly designed for rough terain.
Jack was extremely aprehensive. He tried not to show it. He knew that the bounty hunters had no chance of wining. That was not his fear. He feared that they might go scorched earth. He feared bevily might get caught in the crosfire or worse.
If something happened to her,he would never forgive himself. Odd he always feared that he might be killed leaving bev to raise there children alone. Now he feared the oposite might happen. This scared him. He did not want to have to go though life without her. He calmed himself . He did not have to face that now. It had not happened. He was hopeful that it would not happen.
At the encampment bevily said little. She tried to avoid talking to her captors. She also tried to not cause any trouble. She hoped this would be over soon.
She just wanted to be back with her husband. She wanted to be back with her children,her family.she wanted this to be all over and soon.
  She did not think too much about an unfaborable outcome. She kept teling herself not to. Jack had been thorough manny troubling events and came though them. She had as well.
As a child she was on arveda three though a deadly plaugue. She and her grandmother servived though discovering erbs on the planet.
As a star fleet officer she had several trails she had to endured.she was confident that she could get through this one as well. She would try.
The bounty hunters were planing there next course of action. They knew that it was blique. They had little chance of wining. They knew it.
“Odd. We are not usually on the losing side?”bezek commented.”i know. We are not in the telcrit sector any more are we?”rulnof said. “I am glad that the telcrit system is sicure. There is that!”qozik said.
“Indeed. If we don’t catch up with shalnof,someone will. It is inevitable. He will be recaptured or killed eventually. That i know!”rulnof declared.
The asult forces got closer to the encampment. The team set up blokades. They had a staging area.
“You ok sir?”yar asked. “Not at all but that is to be expected. “Jack said. “I unserstand!” Yar said.
On ucrat’s order,the asault team stormed the area where the slavers were located. The tropers opened fire.
The slavers returned fire. Jack rushed in. He fired then ducked then fired. He stunned several of the thugs. He had to avoid being hit.
He was acting in an eratic manner. Were his wife and morther of his children not in danger,he would probably not be acting in this mannor. This was not a normal ocurence.
Yar tried to cover her captain.he was not making it easy. She was not usually a fan of the policy that mandates the exo lead the away team not the captain,but in this she suspected that he should have stayed behind. That was a mute debate at this point. She focused on the task at hand. In this case it was protecting the captain and stoping the telcrit group.
Romos,Hudson and youngblood covered yar. Yar and jack went at the thugs. Jack ran for bevily. He ducked several impact. He fired back.
“Mr. Youngblood! The merchant from alpha cenaris!” Rulnof said. “My name is crusher jack crusher. Captain of the federation starship enterprise. Your holding my wife hostege!”jack said.
Rulnof came at jack. Jack kicked him to the ground. He was about to be hit. Yar stuned rulnof.
“Jack!” Bevily said. She ran to him. He protected her. The battle came to an abrupt end.
“Captain’s log,the stand off with the talcrit group has come to an end. Most of the captors were captured. Two were killed in the raid. Fortunently none of the away team or planitary force were killed.”
Jack went over to bevily. He huged her. “Bev I’m sory. My grandmorther used to always say,’never make a promise life won’t let you keep.’ I really tried to have an acual vacation!”jack said. She kissed him. “Your fine jack! I love you. This is one aniversery i will never forget!”she said. “Next year picnic on the hollow deck! “He said. “Sounds good!’ She reaplied.
“For now i am free i supose. I suspect i will never be fully free. They won’t stop !”shalnof said. “Don’t give up. Don’t let them win!”bevily said. “I will try!”shalnof said. “I am not letting him out of my site”his wife  said. “Good idea!”jack said. “I wish you all the best!”jack said.they thanked them.

“Commander,i am atempting to circumvent the transport inhibitor. It is a very saphisticated system. It will take time!”lt. Commander data said. “Understood. Do what you can!” Rycer told him. “Aye sir!” Data said in agreement.
“Commander. Something is going on inside the resturant ! I am detecting masive weapons fire. ” Yar reported.
Inside the resturant,the owner of the establishment and several of the staff had rushed the hostege takers. The telcrit forces quickly responded. The force opened fire. The owner and his ilk had older non military isue phasers. The two sides clashed.
  Jack was not sure how to procede. He suspected this play was doomed to failure. Besides he did not have a phaser. He feard that the move by the staff would only make things worse..he was not sure what the answer to this was but this was not it.
The asult team outside ran inside. They fired almost imidieltly apon entry. The forces loyal to rulnof returned fire on the planitrary security forces. Shalnof took his date by the hand and they went to a safe distence. They hid in a corner. Many of the other patrones looked for a safe place to hide form the firce battle.
Several of the attackera were stuned by phaser fire. Manny on the side of the government were stunned. The security force sent in more trops.
Rulnof hated to lose. He would be warned if he lost hear and now. He would not be outsmarted by a man he viewed as a simpleton. This would not.end in defeat. If it ended in something other then victory he would die doing what he saw as.his duty. That would be how it went down.
Rulnof and several remaining thugs pulled back.  They decided to try to live another day. Rulfnif had a plan. He was ready to try to impliment it. It did have a chance of working so he would try it.
He went over to bevily. Jack ran interference. He was hit from behind . He fell to the ground. He got up but was stunned and fell to the ground. He was knocked unconscious.
Rulnof and several orthers tried to flea. They serounded bevily. “Come on miss!”bezek said. The team aimed phasers at her. Rulnof forced her to move. She reluctantly complied.
A security member saw the thugs trying to flee. They tried to interveign. They fired there phasers at the hostles.
The hostles fired back. One of the thugs threw a non lethal gasd granade. While none of the trops were efected by the gass but the trail alowed the telcrit to get to a coridor in the back.
One of the lower ranks of the group sealed one of the doors. They then moved on. They hoped to get away from the complex. They had to do it.
They made it to an egress. The door opened. They left the resturant. They ran out. They were carefull to get out. Now they had leverage. They had a hostege.
Jack had been unconscious for a few munutes. He started to wake up. He started to come around.
“Take it easy sir!” A male star fleet nurse told her. “Bevily!” Jack said. “It seams the telcrit s have doctor crusher. “He told her.
End of part five.
