“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.

” 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.

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. ”
Bridge
“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.
