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

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

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

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

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

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

“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.

“Sending order for surrender!” yar reported. “Do we send ground trops or do we wait for there response?”worf asked. The captain thought it over.
“Send ground trips to the outskirts. Have them stand by!”the captain ordered.
Outside the capital,ground forces from multiple ships emerged. They began to set up base camps. They followed the captain,s orders and did not engage.
Asana flagship
“We cannot get a hold of the emperor president . under naval law it is up to you!”the first officer told the commander.
“Can we gain the super hand?”the captain asked. “Without the wormhole,reinforcements will be days away. We have detected federation reinforcements. ” the tactical officer reported.
“Order the fleet to stand down. Get me the commander of the federation fleet.” the commander said.
U.s.s enterprise
Bridge
“I have the commander of the asana fleet!”yar said. “On screen !”Jack said. Yar transferred the message to the Maine view screen.
“I have ordered my fleet to stand down captain. I wish to be able to withdrawal my forces from the planet and return to asana space!”he said.
“Captain you committed an act of war. I am not thrilled with just letting you go on your marry way . “Jack said.
“Do you really want a long drAwn out conflict over sn issue that is resolved?”he asked.
“You struck a world that was no threat to you. You really want to acuse me of being unreasonable?”Jack said.
“If you wish to continue the conflict I can. “The captain said. “I will allow your fleet to leave. Your fleet will leave under escort until you arrive at the border of federation space. Your personnel can leave the planet but the equipment stays. “Jack said.
“This is crazy!”the asana commander declared. “So is attacking and invading a planet you could not hold! Your government stil may face repercussions but that can be discussed at a later date. Willl you agree to my terms or do we resume the battle?”Jack asked.
“Very well! We will agree to your terms!”the commander said. “Good! We now know your people are capable of anything. We will not be ignorant of you captain. “Jack said.
The asana commander seamed annoyed by that last statement. He was hardly in a position to protest.he decided to let it go. The tramison was terminated.
On the surface,Dr.crusher,nurse zerberst and the rest of the medical team got right to work. The asana had been unable to use heavy artillery against the coliny ,they did plenty of damage with hand phasers and rifles.
There was damage to structures and to people. There was evidence of davisation especially in the capital citty.
“I wish I could have done more. I truly do. “Jack said. “You did what you could. Had you nit more of the colony would have died.”he said. “Perhaps but I don’t feel a sense of vistory. “Jack said.
“That will come later. When we rebuild. I a sure you we will. I figure we will be seeing more of you!”Robert said. “I am afraid so. Star fleet will want to take charge of asana technogy. “Jack said. “So much for the tiny colony that time forgot. “Robert said. “I feel bad for that. “Jack said.”we will make it work!”the governor said. “Of course!”Jack said .
“Argyile to captain crusher!”the chief enginer said. “Go ahead chief!”the captain said. “I need to see you right away and the governor. I think I know why the asana came hear. ” the chief said.
Underground chamber
“The device is somewhere fuised into the planet. It cannot be removed at least not yet. “Argyile said. “What it is?”Robert asked. “We don’t know yet. We think that it might scan the time line! It is temperal!”argyile said. “That’s what they want!”Robert said. “It seams they do !””Jack said.

“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.

“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.

“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.
