  “starship log,commander wiliam rycer reporting. What was to be a romantic getaway for the captain and his wife the ships medical officer has taken an unexpected and negative turn.”
“While at a resturant in the capital’s citty,they were taken hostege by a group of slavers who suply workers for mines. While the planet’s security force has sucesfully sicured the resturant. Some of the bounty hunters esaped,they took dr. Cruser with them. ”
Outside the resterant the thugs and there captors kept moving. They were determined to get away. They headed for a wooded area.
“Move!”bezek barked to bevily. “I am not part of this. Just let me go!” Bevily demanded. “You are inocent in all this. I need you for levege!”rulnof told her.”don’t you have respect for anyone besides yourself?” She asked.
“The universe has finate resources. There is not enough to fuel the fancies for the avarice of every cretures. It is simply how it is. This reigion remote,distent has resources in abudence. It is vertily desolate. Totally open for whoever can subdue it.”rulnof said.
“It is almost perfect except for one thing!” Bezek said. “You don’t have the manpower to mine the resources !”bevily said.
“If we advrotize the need for minners it will atract the attention of competitors!”qozek said.
“Nor just that,suddenly an uninteresting reigion becomes very unteresting. You become a siting duck to the romulons,ferengi,asana,breen and any orther power. Your gold mine becomes a war zone. You kidnap people ,lure in ships. “Bevily said.
“The success of our operation depands on the use of slave labor. We have to do it this way doctor. “Rulnof told her.
“We can’t have even one esape. “Bezek said. “It is over now!”she insisted. “Hardly. We have you. We have power. As long as we do we can still salvege this situation “he said.
Resturant
  Jack was treated by one of the orther staf medical officers from the enterprise. Commander rycer,and several security officers came over to him. “Bill both the captain and first officer should not be out in the open. “Jack said.
“I agree entirely sir. You should head back to the enterprise at once!” Rycer pleaded.
“Nice try bill. There is no way i am leaving until bev is safe and sound. “Jack said.
“I figured as mutch but i had to try!” Rycer told him. “Of course. I understand your position on this but i am not buging. “Jack told rycer. “Very well!”bill answered.
The swat team commander went over to captain crusher. “Captain ! The capital is under full lockdown. Security forces and local police are seting up blokades all over the capital. We suspect that they are heading to the forest. “The leader of the swat team informed him.
“The forest is shielded from detection due to triderium deposit!”major shivest ,the seccond in command said.
“I assume the forest is going to be searched?”rycer asked. “Indeed commander! A team is perparing to go in shortly. “The leader said.
“There is no way that they can get off planet?” Rycer asked. “I don’t see how! The planet is on lockdown. “The leader said.
Shalnof and his girlfriend went over to captain crusher. “Captain i am so sory that you got caught up in all of this. This was never my intention!”shalnof told the captain.
“I know that. I don’t hold you responsible for this. Every one has the right to be free. This was not your fault!” Jack assured him.
“I apreciate your words but it is stil hard for me to acept. I can’t help feeling responsible”shalnof told him.
“I deplore the use of forced labor. Your not at fault hear. I truely believe that. The blaime lies with the telcrit group. “Jack said.
  ” i will do anything i can to help out. I want her fried as well and as soon as possible !” Shalnof said.”i apreciate that. “Jack said.
“What do you think that these people will do?”the swat leader asked.”they will atempt to leave the planet.  I suspect that they have a getaway vessel on the planet. There are probably orther ships nearby!” Shalnof told them.
“We must stop these people !”the major said. “Yes there first prority is to get off planet. If cornored they will comit suiside or they will commit homicide while comiting suiside.” Shalnof told them.
Jack’s heart sank. He felt like he had failed her. He tried not to show any emotion. He tried to mantain his stoism. It was not easy to do so. He felt that it was important to mantain at the ilusion of that control.
Jack knew one thing. He was going to go after bevily now matter what. He would make sure that she was ok.
The telcrit mining group sucesfully made it to the forest. Rulnof ordered them to stop. “This is pointless. Your crusade is not pratical. To persue one fugitive. Now your traped!”bevily told him.
“You don’t understand us. You don’t understand who we are.” Rulnof said. “I don’t think i want to. I am prety sure i do not. “Bevily answered him.

“Mr data do you have anything ?”jack asked over the communicator. “I am still unable to get pass the minerals that disrupt the scaners. I am atempting to get a reading sir!”data informed him. “Keep working on it. “Jack said. “I will sir!”data said.
Jack went with the security forces with hover cars. The cars moved out. The vehicles headed to the woods. The security force was not sure if rulnof had to made it to the woods. No stone would be unterned. They would be located.
The hover cars entered. Jack got off of the hover car and joined the foot patrols. Jack moved out.
Jack had his phaser in hand. There were star fleet officers who folowed the captain. “Tricorder still not working !”yar informed him. “We will have to use our natural sansors. “Jack declared. Yar agreed.
Jack tried to hear everything. He took in every smel. He took it every sounds. He heard something. This way. The team folowed jack. Ramos,youngblood and hudson were right behind him.
The team kept on going. Jack took out 24th century. Banoculers. He enlarged the image. He saw bevily. He saw the orther thugs.
“We have to do this carefully !”the colnel said. “Agreed. “Jack said. The team got prepared. They had a plan and now it was time to impliment it.

“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.

Isn’t it romantic part 4

“Captain’s log,my grandmother used to say don’t make promises you can’t keep. I now understand that there man is not in control of his own destiny. There are always outside factors. There are things that you cannot predict. ”
“I really wanted a romantic getaway. I wanted time alone with my wife bevily. It seams that’s not going to happen. ”
The building was fully serounded by the adaren security ministry. They sicured the area.
“Ok people ! You are all hosteges. Be calm and cooperate and we all be home before you know it!”rulnof said.
“Look! These people are inocent. Let them go!” Shalnof said. “You caused this. If you had just serendered. You refused. You caused this!” Bezek said.
“You kidnaped me. I was in an area of space where slavery was iligal. You brought me to your space witch is not recognized by any government. How did i cause this?” Salnof asked.
“The rule of law,universal rights of sencients,it is all a lie. The universe has one law,might makes right. History is writen by the winners. We got you. We will keep you. Your life ended the day you were captured. You can’t win. “Rulnof said.
“It seams you are the one that can’t win. The planet ardaren is opposed to slavery and sentient trafficking. They have a masive security and military force. You can’t win this!” Jack said.
“I don’t cace easily young blood. I fight until i can’t. Danger does not repel me. It excites me,energizes me!” Bezek said.
All of a suden a holow image apeared. Everyone was a little freaked out. Rulnof calmed every one down.
“This is supervisory agent beket huran with the ardaren security ministery. “He said.
“I am rulnof. We are with the telcrit mining group. We are engaged in figutive recovery. Under the fugitive extraction treaty of 2327,we are in our rights. “Runof said.
“No the telcrit mining group is not a recognized government or non governmentle entity. You are outnumbered. Give up!”he said.
One of runof’s thug went for bevily. Jack tried to put himself between his bride and the thugs.another thug struck jack. Jack fell to the ground. He was staring down the beril of several phasers.
Bevily was pulled up from the ground. Runof held a phaser to her temple. “I will schoot her if you do not wuthdraw your forces. She won’t be the last. ” The slaver bounty hunter declared.
“Come on. Let her go! Is it really worth it. Either this ends in bloodshed or you give up. There is really no orther option. “The supervisory agent said.
“Leave now or i will schoot!”the thug declared. Jack tried to get up but was prevented from doing so by the thugs.
“We will not withdraw completly. If you let her go we will pull back a short distence. ” The hostege negociator said. “Very well. You first!” Runof said.  The planitary security force did wuthdraw as reqauested. “We fulfilled our part of the bargun!”baket said. Runof let her go.
Bev ran away from runof. Jack pushed pass the thugs and went to bevily. He gave her a great bug hug.
“Business partner you say?” Runof asked. “Partner with banefits?” Qozok said. The thugs laughed.

Qurters of commander wiliam rycer.
Rycer was asleep. “Bridge to commander rycer.”the bridge duty officer said. Rycer was a bit grogy but came to his sencess. He hit the com button near his bed. “Go ahead!” Rycer said.
“Sir. There is a 7-7 sutuation at a resturant in landa citty. It is believed that enterprise crew members amoung the hosteges. “The bridge officer said. “Understood. I will be right up!”rycer said.

Office of the chancellor
” We have atempted to beam in. They must be using transport inhibitors. “The security minister said. “Do you know how many of our people they are holding?”rycer asked.
“We believe only two. A male and female! We believe they are a romantic couple!”the minister said. “Do you have any closed circut recording outside the establishment ?”lt. Yar asked.
“Yes it can be called up from my station. “The chancellor said.
The security minister called it up. They played it back. “I’l be darned!”rycer said.
“This is not good!” Yar said. “Who is it?”the chancellor asked.”it is our captain and medical officer. “Rycer said.
” The telcrit mining group has no recognition any where. Not even with the romulons or tholiens or breen. They resent it. They do not recognize our sovrenghty either. Many hostege situation involving the t.m.g don’t end well!”the security minister said.
“Minister jalbin i would hate for anything to happen to the captain and his wife!”rycer said.
“Not would I. Many races considered the telcrit to be terorist. We do not bargain with terrorist. ” The chancellor said.
“I respect that. We have a similar policy. Do you have a plan?”rycer said.
“An armed strike force armed with phasers could go in. There may be casulties but we may be able to keep it to a minumum! “The security minister said.
“This is risky! To send in an asult team is inviting trouble.”rycer said.
“We can’t sit by while our citizen’s are thretened. “The security minister said.” “We should not act in a hastily manner!”yar said.
“I agree but we do need to prepare. I am authorizing the ministery of security to prepare operations to storm the complex. No action is to be taken until i give a direct order.”the chancellor said.
“Understood!”the minister said.”that will be all.” The chancellor said.
“Commander i will do all i can to sicure the hosteges. “The chancellor said. “I know that sir. I apreciate that. ” The commander said.
The two left the office. “This is not a good situation!”yar said. “No it is not! “Rycer said.
Inside the resturant the telcrit were getting nervous. This was not how it was suposed to happen. Now the local authorities are involved.
“You can’t win this rulnof!”shalnof said. “We let one go the entire operation is doomed. You have to be made an example. “Rulnof said.
“Eventually this will end. I doubt it will end with your side victorious. ” Jack crusher said.
“The government won’t risk the lives of the hosteges. I will win in the end. ” rulnof said.
“You would really die for this or kill for this?”shalnof asked. “You know i would. “Rulnof answered.
“What about all of you? Are you really as insane as he is?” Shalnof’s date asked.”You can’t devide us! We have an unshakible bound!”qozic said. No one was sure if that was true or not.
“What will happen ?”bev wispered to jack. “The telcrit don’t give up. I have heard of hostege situation in the past. They did not end well!” He said.”way to chear me up jack!”bevily said. “I try to be honest. “He said. “I know . I do apreciate that. There has to be a way to get out of hear in one peace !”she said.
“There is a solution to every problem. One just has to find it. One has to always be looking. I intend to do just that. “Jack declared.
Bevily trusted him. He had never let her down before. This was a difficult time. These men were not to be trifled with. She had no idea how the adaren government would react. There were so manny uncertinties.
The owner of the establishment was getting impatient. He would not sit by and do nothing. He and some of his employees decided to act.
They began to rush at the thugs. The thugs reacted. It was pure pandimonium.
“Something is going on inside there!”a troper said. “Stand by to go in!”the major in charge said.

“Isn’t it romantic” part three

“Personal log,captain crusher reporting. I am curently on leave with my wife on the planet. We are curently at a resturant in the capital citty. We are comemorating out 17Th weding anaversery. ”
“Jack these have been the best 17 years of my life. I would not trade any of it. “Bevily said. “I have not always been the most sensitive i gues'” jack said.
“Your fine! “Bevily said.
“I know you have had to make a lot of sacrifices for me. They have not gone unoticed. “Jack said. “You have made a few for me. Look i may tease you and i still will. “She said.
At the orther table,the two talked. “You ok? You seam nervous ?”she asked. “I am fine! I’m sory jarulia,i don’t meen to be so jumpy. I really am having a good time !” He said.
She smilled. “I am too! ” she said. He was glad to hear that.
The door opened,several entered. They wore a kind of gray uniform. The man looked up. “Oh no!” He said. “Shalnof what is it?” Jarulia asked. “We have to have to get out of hear!” Shalnof declared.
“I will explain latter. We have to leave!” He said. He took her hand. They went for a back door. The solders dispersed and looked for the man.
“Over there!”a soldjer said. “He is atempting to get away! “Another said. The soldjers atempted to overrealm him. One of the soldjers fired a warning schot.
The guest and staff started to panic. “What’s going on?”bevily asked. “I am not sure!” Jack said.
Jack wondered what was going on. He hoped that it was not too serious. He did not what was turning into a magical evening into an infamous day. He tried not to fret about it now. It was not clear what was going on. Perhaps it could be cleared up quickly. He hoped so. 
“What is going on hear?” The waiter asked. “This is not your concern!” The commander of the commandos said. He pushed the waiter to the ground.
“You have no jurisdiction hear ritnof !” Shalnof said. “I have jurisdiction whever i claim it!”ritnof declared.
They serounded the man. “Please let him go? He is a kind man!” Jurilia said. “I have my orders. Shalnof you know what my order is like. For your shake and the shake of those around you,you have to give up!” Rulnof said.
Jack and bev watched the event unfold. Neither one had a clue what was going on.
“I anhor violence. Give up and we can do this qietly and without incident!” Rulnof said.
“I won’t go back! “Shalnof said. “You do not apear to have a choice. You are out numbered and out gunned. ” kozer said.
“You! “A man well dressed came out of the back room. “This is none of your concern!” Bezrek said. “I should say it is! This is my establishment ! “The owner berdirit said. “Our charter supercedes every thing!” Rulnof said.
“Your order has no right to operate hear. This is soveregn space not under your ‘organization’ pervue!” Shalnof declared. “I have always believed might makes right!”rulnof said. “We have the might!” Kozer said. His ilk agreed.
“I won’t do it! I won’t go back!” Shalnof said. “It is not up to you!”bezerek said. “It never was!”qoovik said.
“I won’t go with you!” Shalnof said. Rulnof went for julrilia. He held a phaser to her head. She had a terified look. The guest screamed.
“Please ! I won’t have violence in my establishment !”the resturant owner declared. “You have no say in this! I do not have a say in this! Only shalnof does!” Rulnof said.
Jurilia looked really scared. She had no idea about violence. She grew up on a farm. She had barely seen a phaser let alone hold one. She was a bit of an idealist,a dreamer. She never expected this.
“I will schoot! I won’t lose any sleep over it. ” rulnof said. She looked to shalnof.
Jack watched the whole thing.he had no idea what was going on. He did not know how to procede.he was not sure if he should procede.
“Who are these people! Jack?” Bevily asked. “They are called the telcrit mining group. They control a remote area of the betta qudrent. It has imense resources but it is far away from any of the major powers. The planets were all pre warp. Some were pre industerial. This mining guild seized the telcrit solar system and moved there entire operation there. They created a security force witch was a well equiped army. They even recruited former soldjers even generals and admiral from other planitary aliences. “He said.
“So they are not a real sate?” Bevily asked. “No! No government recognizes them. No one has oposed them either. They win by default. They are too far away from star fleet and the federation. We have no way to put presure on them. “Jack said.
“That man is kaverien. The kaveriens are no where near the tulcrit sector. How did he caught up in this ? “Bevily asked.
“I think that we are deeling with a 24th century version of being shanghaid. “Jack commented.
“They are kidnapping people from far off places and making them work the mines. Iligal sencient trafficking. Slave labor. Most likely some government oficials are bribed or they just turn a blind eye. “She said.
“They don’t like esapes. Even if one person esapes,they won’t stop until they are caught. They thrive on fear!” He said.
“Will the adariens alow these slavers to just extract this man?”bevily asked. “I don’t know !”jack said.
Shalnof went for rulnof. Jurilia tried to get away. One of the thugs took out there phaser and aimed it at her. Jack ran and slammed bezerek to the wall. He grabed the phaser and aimed it at him.
Kozer had rushed to jurilia’s position and aimed a phaser at her. “Don’t move !”kozer insisted. Bevily ran and drove the thug to the ground. She grabed the phaser. She aimed it at him. “Don’t think about it?” Bevily admonished kozer.
Suddenly jack was serounded. “Its not worth it!” Rulnof said. “I don’t like slavers!” Jack said. “I don’t like terans!” Rulnof said. “Put it down!” Qoovit demanded.
“Do it! I am not worth it! I don’t want bloodshed. This is not your fight!” Shalnof told him. Jack threw the phaser on to the floor. One of the thugs picked it up.
Bevily stil had a phaser aimed at bezerek. ” Ok teran order your friend to drop the phaser and release my asociate!”rulnof demanded. “Its ok bev. Let him go!”jack said. She released him and droped the phaser. “Very wise!”rulnof said.
“Who are you?” Rulnof asked. “I’m Wesley youngblood i am a murchent currently living on alpha cinaris. I am hear on business !”he said. “This one your business partner?”ilvic asked. The orthers laughed. “After a fashion !”jack said.
“We have compony. It is the adaren security ministry!” Bezerek said.
Rulnof thought quickly. The man took the perimiter of the resturant including the egreses. They pointed there weapons at the staf and patrones. Qoovit and ilvic stuned random guest. There was screams.
“Ok every one! I am taking control of this establishment. You are all hosteges. If we die you die!” Runlof said.
