“We have an incoming ship. It is the lightning ship. It appears to ‘ve a super warship. It is bigger then anything that we have encountered before. ” tactical officer Ramos reported.
“Stand by all weapons. Hear We go again!” the engineering officer argyile ordered. The weapons were activated and the shields were up.
“Sir I am detecting a high amount of energy coming from the dread naught.”rooms reported.
“Veer off veer off!”he ordered.before the ship could get away. The ships exploded. The vest explosive wake spread to the thought.
The explosion tore the space time continuum.the remains were propelled into another dimension. The one where Jack crasher commands the enterprise.

“Are you sure that it is Mr. Argyile that they are afraid of?”bill asked.”yes I see his image in my mind. It is in there mind. They want me to see it. They see him as a threat. “Deana told him.
“It would make sense if he was the commander of the argonaught. “Daa commented. “How do they know he is hear?”the doctor asked.”they may have a stronger telepathic abilities then Vulcan or even bettazoid. Perhaps they can sense certain people. There is much about telepathy we do not understand!”data remarked.
“Will they try to kill him ?”goes I asked. “It is a distinct possibility!”data said “we should take extra precaution !”Jack said .
“I will make the arrangements. “Yar said.
“Can you communicate with the crew of that ship?”Jack asked. ” not directly. It seams that communication is one way. I am trying. Perhaps there is a way that I can get though to them. “She told them.
“I assume that they will attack once we are in weapons s range. “Bill said.”a responsible hypothosis commander!”data said. “I want to be ready!”Jack ordered.
Ready room.
“So the aliens have a special dislike for me?”the engineering officer asked. “It Seams so chief! It may be as simple as they see you as a leader. They hold a grudge!”Jack said.
“I still can’t see myself as a starship commander. That is not me. I have never wanted to be anything but a chief engineer. “The chief said.
“I figured that. Mayby you wanted to command your baby. This is your ship.from drawing bored to shake down. ” Jack said. Argyile laughed. “I gues I could see that. I get a little protective I guess. “The chief said.
Jack laughed. “That Is understanible chief!” the captain told his department head.
Bridge
” the vessel is nearing weapons range!”worf reported. “Hail the vessels again.”Jack ordered.”aye sir!”yar responded.
The eastern European descent who was born on a failed human colony sent the message. The message was a modified version of standard greeting. She doubted that the attempt would work. They had to try.
“No response! “Yar said. “They are sending me images of the chief. I thunk that they are trying to conveigh that they will not talk to us while the chief is in a posistionof prominence! “Deana said.
“Or as long as I live ?”argyile said.”I am prety sure that’s that’s true. I did not want to word it quite that way. Yes I think so sorry chief!”Deana said. “This guy really holds a grudge!”the chief said.”seams so!”Bill said.
“We are now in weapons range! They are charging weapons!”yar reported. “Shields up! Brace for impact!”Bill said. The warship opened fire on the enterprise. The Ray struck the vessel. The enterprise was nudged back wards a slight direction. The ship stoped.
“Shields holding!” the Klingon at an aft station reported. “Return fire!”Jack ordered. The female officer at tactical presed the fire button. A series of photon torpedoes were unleashed. The projectiles hit the warship. Various section of the ship was hit.
“There anger is directed at the chief. Everything that we do is blamed on the chief. There is quite a lot of hostility. It is all aimed at Mr. Argyile. “She said.
The two sides exchanged weapons. While data studied the ship. Data tried to find an advantage over the vessel.
Argyile studied the ship from his station. He saw something. He did some checking. He then went to data to check his idea.
There conversation went on as the battle did as well. Both sides continued to occur. “Captain we have an idea!”data said. “Lets hear it!” Jack said.
The captain liked the idea. It was risky but the captain knew that the battle had to be won. The enterprise and warship traded schots . while argyile and data put the finishing touches on the plan.
The enterprise emitted a pulse using the main deflector dish. The pulse looked like a large funnel. The pulse hit the warship.
The pulse hit the warship. The enterprise fired with phaser and photon torpedoes. The weapons hit the ship.
The alien ship was wounded. There shields were down . key syistoms had been crippled.
“Hail the ship. Mayby now they are wiling to talk!” Jack said. “Opening hailing frequency!”yar reported. She sent the message. “No response!”yar said.
“Captain I am detecting a massive energy reading.it is coming from the ship!”worf announced.
“Move us away!”Jack ordered. The enterprise tried to get away from the ship. The large vessel had rigged self destruct. The vessel exploded.
The explosion headed right for the enterprise. The wake struck the galaxy class vessel. The vessel was pushed back.
Gordi and obrian worked the helm. The vessel was swept into some kind of vortex. Gordi took the ship to a full stop. “We are not at full stop!”chief obrian said.
“Sir we are no longer in our universe!we have crosed over into a parallel universe!”data reported.
On the screen was deviation. The evidence of the detonation . Silver clouds replaced the blackness of space that is usually seen. There was nothing but devisation for light years.
“The last words of the alien commander was vegience forever. “Deana said .”all this rage against me! I know I am not everyone cup of tea but what is this about?” argyile said.
“We have quite a mystery on our hands. One we need to solve quickly. “Jack said.

“Mystery ship ” part two

“Captains log,while conducting a routine probe of an uncharted reigon,we have discovered the last thing we ever expected to. We have located what appears to be degree from a federation starship. No starships to my knowledge has ever been hear or near this area”Jack said.
Bridge
“We are now in orbit!”lt. Gordi laforge announced. “Asuume standered orbit Mr.laforge !”Jack ordered.
The blind pilot who saw though a device called a visor took the ship into orbit. “Now in standard orbit captain!”He reported.
” captain! The planet is clas m,oxygen and nitrogen. “Data reported.
“Bill assemble an away team!”Jack instructed his seccond in command “aye sir! “Rycer said.the first officer got up from the chair in the command horse shoe. “Data,yar.Deana,gordi,worf with me.” the executive officer said. The officers mentioned got up . they followed the first officer. They headed to the turbo lift.
The commander taped on his communicator. “Rycer to engineering!”he said. “Go-ahead! “The chief said. “Chief prepare an engineering team. Have them meat me in transporter room two. “He said .”you got it commander!”the engineer said.
The first officer and the away team entered the turbo lift. They excited the bridge. The door closed.
Engineering
The chief engineer called the Iner circle to the center of the room. “Ok Ravi you have command of the engineering section while I am gone! ” the chief said.
His number two was a bit surprised.”your going to the planet?” the Indian man said.”let’s see,debree from a federation ship in a remote area . an area never explored by the federation not even a probe. This could be a huge mystery. Yes I am definitely going to the surface. ” the chief said.
After that the asustent chief backed down. He Had learned the ques from The head of the engineering department. He knew when the chief had made up his mind. He knew when to back down. There was no way the chief was sitting on the side lines. Not this time.
“Alright! Schimota,Hudson. Bradford Donaldson and Townsend with me. “Argyile said. They followed the chief.
Transporter room.
The chief and his team entered.the first officer had a wide smirk on his face. The chief had learned that when the commander had a wide smile that a joke at your exspence was coming. It was always in good fun. Even if you did bot want to,you would laugh right along with it.
“Your stil hear! “Bill said. Argyile was a bit confused. “Excuse me?”the engineering officer asked. “I was under the impression that you could not excist outside engineering. I thought that you would disappear the moment you set foot outside . “the first officer said.
“Funy Bill!”he said in response. “Sir my records sate he is a human. His ability to excise outside engineering is not in qyestione. I have seen him multiple times in orther parts of the ship and off the ship. “Data said.
Deana starting laughing. Bill thought to himself about how he loved her laugh. Deana looked at him.he was a bit emberised. Sometimes he forget that she could read his thought. Even now it took him by surprise.
“Well this mystery is not going to solve itself. Lets do this!”the commander said. They went up to the transporter pad. “Read when you are sir!” transporter chief Ryder said. “Enerzize chief!” Bill said.
The chief activated the controls. The team were beamed off of the ship. They materialized on the surface.
“Ok fan out!”the baby faced commander said. The team moved around. There was debre everywhere.
The debre was the standard coller of a federation vessel. One of the peases had the delta style insignia with a circle.
“No doubt it’s star fleet !”data commented. “Or made to look star fleet!”gordi suggested. “Why would ant one fabricate debre?”The android said “it seams unlikely whoever nothing should be ruled in it or out at this point!”security chief yar remarked. “She is right everything is on the table until it can resonibly be dulled out. Data if you qoate Holmes so help me I will scoot you!”Bill said.
“Commander there is no need to resort to violence . if you wish me to refrane from making such a quotation all you need to do is ask!” data said. No one did not laugh at that.
“It is defineny some kind of plasma based weapon that brought this ship done!”worf said.
“I am detecting multiple plasma impacts.”yar reported. “I am detecting what could be evidence of an explosion from some kind of spacial charge. “Engineering officer Hudson said.
“The charges appear to predate the other impact!”the Klingon reported “so the ship was hit by a major impact from a charge. Then the ship was hit by plasma cannons or something similar. “Enginer Jim  schimota said. “A responsible hypothesis!”data said.
The team did visual anylises as well as recorder scans. Lt. Bradford saw call letters.
“Commander! I have something!”the female engineering officer said. The commander came over.
“Call letters, nx 4000.”she said. “Commander I am well versed In star fleet starships and there is no nx 4000 ever launched !”data said.
“I am well versed with federation starship history myself. An n x  notation denotes experimental starship. I think I would have heard of it. I know Mr. Data would have!”Bill said.
” you said nx 4000?”Argyile asked “yes sir!”Bradford said.”what is it chief,”Bill asked.”not sure yet commander. “He said.
The team looked at other wreckage. One of the team found another clue. “I have something.u.ss Argonauts. “Hudson said.
Aygyile was stunned.”no it can’t be?this is not possible! “The chief. Said. “What it is chief?” the first officer asked.
“The Argonauts was An idea I had. It never got off the drawing bored or the drawing pad in my case!”Argyile said. “What are you saying chiefs?”Bill asked. “I had an idea for a New design. I was bored so I designed the argonaught. I know how strange thus sounds.to my knowledge this ship never excited!” he said.
End of part two.
Notes
I have decided to have Rycer go by Bill in this reality. No real reason.just because it is different . Deana called him Bill in “naked now”and “haven” in some of the early poket book novels such as “ghost ship” .
Lt. Bradford is the female enginer In “home soul” to my knowledge she was never given a anime.Bradford is a name I came up with.
Jim schimota was assistant chief enginer in first hour long episode of tng “the naked now” he was played by Benjamin js Lund.
Hudson was an uncredited character seen in the background during the first two seasons. In the 1988 calender He was refered to as engineering officer Hudson. He was played by Dexter clay.
Townsend is a name I came up with. He is an engineer seen in “the child” he was played by dore Keller.
Ryder is the transporter chief seen in naked now,code of hournor,and haven. He was never given a name.he was played by Michael Ryder.

episode 8

“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.

episode five

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.
U.s.s enterprise

“Are we ready chief?”jack asked.”yes. There was nothing wrong with the ship witch i knew. Oh well!”chief engineer argyile said.”at least now we are sure! ” jack said. “Maybe !”argyile said. Jack laughed.
“Well time to get underway. Helm take us out of orbit. “Jack ordered.
