Mystery ship part 4

Planet
The away team began to start leaving the planet. They started to move equipment back to the enterprise. While several peaces of the ship was brought to the ship.
“What is it?”lt. Romos asked a younger security officer. He looked at the tricorder reedings. “I am picking up energy readings. It is coming this way.”Youngblood said.
The two walked deeper into the forest. The reading intensified. The two got closer to the reading. “It is the black box!” the younger officer reported.
U.s.s enterprise
Bridge
“Captain! They recovered the black box!”yar reported.”Mr. Data I want you to go over it with a fine tooth comb! I want answers!”Jack told the android.
Data was confused. “Sir? Do you really want me to use a comb to examine the flight recorder?”data asked.
This was a very serious somber time on the enterprise. Despite that lt. Gordi laforge found it hard to resist the urge to laugh.
“I was speaking figuratively commander. I ment that I want you to be thourough. This is very important!”the captain informed the android.
” oh ok I see. I will endeavor to be accurate and intricate sir!”data said.”please do !” the captain admonished him. The commander agreed.
“Captains log the remaining members of the away teams have returned.the enterprise is preparing to leave orbit . we are going to head for what we believe may have brought the mysterious ship hear.”
Bridge
“All decks standing by!”worf reported. “Mr. Laforge take us out of orbit. ” the captain ordered. The blind officer who saw though the use of a device called a visor plotted the course that took the large starship back to open space.
“We are now in open space. ” gordi reported. ” set course for the source of the disturbance! “Jack ordered. The helm protest the course.the enterprise went to warp. The ship was off.
“Now on course!” chief obtain who was meaning the ops station said.the captain wanted this mystery solved. He figured that the investigation would go in a hundred different directions.
Mr. Data was able to access the flight data recorder. The device Was designed to withstand almost anything. It was set to automatically eject in an emergency or imminent disaster. Data activated the recorder.

A few days earlier
U.s.s argonaught
Bridge
” vessel destroyed. “The computer voice announced. “Pilot get us out of hear. Just in case they have friends nearby!”captain argyile said.
The smal but powerfull vessel went to warp.the ship went away. They had been attacked at every turn. The enemy used hit and run raids. There tactics was snal sustained attack overtime. Take a part of space and hold it. Then anex teratory near and just keep expanding. It had worked.
It was unnoticed at first. Then it became unavoidable.
Ciridor
“The ship held!”enginer Singh said.”of course it held Rajesh! I told you it would. Star fleet doubted my idea of leener leener. With the threat of the lightning,no one doubts me now!”argyile said.
“You really think that there is a paturn? “The Indian enginer told him.”I can’t see one. There has to be! Everything they have done has been part of an intricate plan. I can’t believe that they would just go random now. There is a plan,there has to be. “The enginer turned captain.
“Is it really necessary to figure out there paturn? Overwhelming force should surfice against the lightning.”sighn said. “Perhaps . I stil think we need to know there strategy. Something is going on. I can’t help but think we are being manipulated some how. “He said.
“Am ambush! There is no evidence of that! The engineering officer said. “I know. I stil think that it was going on. “Argyile said.
Bridge
“Detecting incoming vessel. It is a lightning battle cruiser. ” the computer voice announced.
“Shields up! Red alert! Hear we go again!”the captain declared. The tactical officer lt.Ramos raised the shields. “Shields up! Weapons standing by!”the Hispanic officer said.
The argronaught got the first shot.the vessel fired a full volley of phasers and photon torpedoes.the volley struck the ship.
The warship fired back on the federation ship. The star ship hit back with a vegience.the ship had a lot of power in it.it used it.
The warship tried to drain the enemy power. The vessel fired a pod that detonated ans emitted a pulse that drained the ships energy.
“Shields holding but the shield intregrety is a bit down!”Ramos reported.
Enterprise
Bridge “what have you found?”Jack asked. “The ship was involved In a battle. Computor display last time sequence!”data ordered.
On the bridge of the vessel, they watched the bridge crew of three. They had overcome a series of ship.  The argonaught over came the ships.
Then a hole opened,a large dreadnaught came out.the large capital ship exploded. The explosion caused a rift In space.
“Then the explosion caused the rip in the space time continuum. “Ryker said.”why go to all this trouble to destroy one ship?”Deana asked.
Conference room.
“Mr. Data!”the captain said.”in thus reality at the urging of there commander argyile,star fleet went to smaller ships that rely on less crew. The access power created more powerful ships. It was misinterpreted by non alignedand enemy races. It created an arms race.a cold war developed. Then a mysterious race nicknamed The lightning began attacking the federation and nearby races. ” data said.
“The federation was forced to engage the ships. The argonaught was commanded by Mr. Argyile!”data said.”me becoming a command officer! It would never happen. “The enginer said.
“The argonaught was lured to the sector.they sacrificed ships to bring them there!”data said.
“This makes little since. The argonaught is impressive.it is such a threat that Warnents going to all thus trouble to destroy it?”the first officer asked.
“That is not the only issue!”lt. Yar reported. “The explosion ruptured the structural intregrety of the space Time continuum.right now it is smal. I am not sure it is contained.”word said.
“This region is already showing signs of instability. I believe it will increase. ” data said.
“This area should be quarantined. “Yar said.”we will have markers planted.I believe we should continue the investigation. “Jack said.
“There was nothing to indicate the purpose of the hostile s?”the enginer asked. “No the captains log indicate that he was confounded by the irrationality of the attacks. “The android reported.
“Is assume this phynomina is only ocuring hear?”heavily asked.”yes no other sector is affected. “Worf said.”I believe that that could change. It may take time even centuries.I believe this rupture Will expand!” data said .
” we can’t get a break ! We deal with the asana,furengi,trapped outside time,sentient trafficking, space orhism trying to kill me now this!”Jack said.
” it is never boring!” Bill the second in command said. ” no it’s not!”Jack said. The crew got up.
“I never thought my ship would cause so much trouble. “The enginer said.”you never know. Eve. A smal act can alter the flow if history. Had it not been for the rulture. This one would not have affected us.  Now it has!”Jack said.
Engineering
“Hi wess!”the enginer said.”hi chief! “Wes said.” your not guming up my engines are you?”he asked.the teen smiled. “If course not commander!”he said.”good!”he said.
“So! Your ship got built in the orther  line?”Wes asked.”it seams it did. You know at the time,I was devastated. I really thought I had a great ship. The future of the fleet. Then I totally forgot about it.in the scheme of things,it was a major non event. It was a major event in another time line. It destroyed them!”argyile said.
” I understand you were a captain ?’ve asked. “Man.nothing esapes your attention. Arnt you supposed to discovering girls about now?” the enginer asked.
Wes laughed. “I looked into my doupleganger as it were, the creation of the argonaught made him or me a celebrity. Star fleet command insisted he command it . he did. Then not long into his command everything fell apart. “The engineering officer said.
“You have no plans to change carers?”we asked. “Engineering is my pasion Wesley.my job us to so what I love? How many can say that.I am chief enginer of the federation flagship. The pride of the fleet. I would hate to do anything else. I hope to do this until senility kicks in and maybe a little bit after that!”the chief said.
“This ship would not be The same without you. ” wes said.”what about you Wes. What do you love?” he asked. “I don’t know. I am busy  to know !”he said .”find out and persue it with all your might!” he admonished him. “I will!”Wesley said.
Bridge
“Estimate ten minutes to the rupture at present course and speed!”gordi reported. “Steady as she goes helm!”Jack ordered. “Aye sir!”the blind helm officer said.
“Sir we have a perimeter alert!” Worf announced.”can you get a reading on it?”Jack asked.”it is the same type of vessel that engaged the argonaught in the orther reality!”yar said.
“Hail the vessel!”Jack ordered.”hailing frequencies open. No responce!”yar reported.”there weapons and screens are up!”the Klingon reported.
” what do they want with us?” bevily asked. ” I wish I knew !”Jack said.” sir? I Sense they ate agitated. Unerved. “Deana said. “At us?” the doctor asked. “No! Not us as a whole . it is chief argyile. They are terrified of him. I cannot figure out why!” Deana exclaimed.
End  of part four.
Notes
I am not sure how to portray Wesley. I can see Jack being torn on Wesley. On the one hand he would  Wes to follow in his footsteps. He would be sensitive to bev who would be afraid for Jim given the dangers with starship life.Wesley would probably feel that stugle. As I write wess journeys end is definitely In my mind.
Argyile is a fun character to write. Even though there is not much Canon information on him,you can see his personality in those few scenes.

episode 8

Mystery ship part three

“Captains log,we have discovered wreckage from what appears to be a federation ship. The odd thing is that there is no records of any federation starship being in this area. what is even more unusual is that the vessel is one that was never built so far as anyone is aware. ”
Use enterprise
Ready room.
“I am confused. This was a design you came out with. It was never built?”captain crushed said. ” that is correct !” argyile said.
“Please tell me more chief! “The captain ordered. ” of course. It was twenty years ago. I was assigned to star fleet engineering division of starship development. ”
“It was a crossroads of sorts for the federation. While at the time we were technically at a time of hostility with the Klingon empire. It was more informal then anything else. The federation and the Klingon had little or no interaction at the time .”
“The federation had returned to it’s roots. It was buisy exploring the unknown. The fleet was aging. Star fleet wanted a new fleet. ”

Star fleet command
Sanfransisco
Argyile was a lt. Jr grade. He was there with several orther  Jr officers.
“Alright people! Star fleet wants to expend our deep space probe of the galaxy. We want to continue to bodily go where no one has gone before. To do that we need a new generation of starship. We want you all to come up with designs for a new starship. We want your best idea !” admiral Iverson said.
“There were several of us who ‘re chosen to design a starship.this included some of the future stars of the fleet. We all worked hard.
“We want your very beat ideas. You could be shaping the future of star fleet. “Commander Anthony Haftel said.
Outside.
“Orphil why do I think you have half a ship already in your mind?”a younger argyile asked. “I do. I assume you do too!”lt. Orphil qunqeros said. “Heck I have a whole ship in mind. “Argyile said. “I a not surprised !”he said.
“I spent mounths on it. Many a sleepless night. I was so excited to work on it. Ideas kept coming and coming. When I had completed the project, I was excited to present it to star fleet. ”
Star fleet command
Sanfransisco.
The model was brought in. The table cloth was removed. “Ladies and gentleman I give you the u.s.s. Argonauts. The argonaught is eauped with a sansor array independent from all other sysisyom. The vessel is designed for long term exploration. The vessel will have a maximum warp speed of warp 9.2. The vessel only needs a crew of fithteen. The computer will control most ship’s syistoms. ”
“I have decided to model the ship after vessels before star fleet . the ship’s are striped down. There are few amenities. This will free up power consumption. This will alow us to cover more ground. ” argyile said.
“Why go striped down,why not go big?”commander haftel asked.”I believe I have gone big. This ship will be fast and efficient.”argyile said.
“I understand that lt but in a long mission, is not a crew entitled to some amenities?”admiral lesitor asked.
“Star fleet missin do require some sacrifice. It serves a greater good I believe. It will make history. Of that I have no doubt. “The chief enginer said.
They asked a few more questions. He really thought that they would love his idea. After the questions time he knew that they were not going to chose his.
His good friend lt. Qinceros did not fare much better with his idea either. His idea was a large vessel. It could be characterized as a dread naught. His ship did not have a crew. It was a living . totally contoled by a.I.
“Lt. Argyile we like your idea. It is very impressive. It is not what we are looking for.we are looking for a luxury liner in space. Basically a city ship. A place for families. We want to have the maximum amenity given the desired duration of such a mission. “The admiral said.
“The ship is impressive but it is just not what we are looking for this misson. “Commander haftel said.
“Lt Qinceros we really  liked your idea. We are looking at manned operations right now. Whoever we do want to use some of your designs and technology in our new starships that are about to come down are road!”admiral lesitor said.
“They chose a starship called the universe class .the vessel was designed to be big and glorias. The vessel went though several changes. The vessel would be eventually the galaxy class. ” the chief said.
“What happened to your ship design?”the captain asked. “My designs went into my private archives.  The one I submitted to Starfleet probably is in memory prime. “He said.
“Could an alien race have stolen the blue prints and built there own version of it?”rycer asked. “It seams far fetched but I gues it is possible. “The chief said.
The captain could tell when his first officer had an idea.he got very quet. He tended to stroke his celeb shaven face. “Sir! What if there was a reality in witch your design was accepted and became part of the fleet?”the first officer asked.
“Are you talking parallel universe Bill?”the engineer asked. “The possible world’s theory dates that if an event happened in one universe,there has to be one in witch the opposite occurred.we know alternate realities excite. The enterprise under captain Kirk encountered an alien named lazerous and his counterpart. Then there was the universe in witch the federation was an intergalactic empire. There may be more realities. This could be one of them.” the commander said.
“You really think that there is a universe that my ship was used in the fleet?”argyile asked. “If you believe the possible world’s theory  there would have to be. “Jack said.
“Alright let’s say there is a universe where the argonaught existed . How did it get hear?” the chief asked.
“The situation with the two Lazarus was caused by some kind of disturbance. The encounter with the mirror universe was caused by an ion storm. It could have been brought hear. “Bill said.
“I have heard that it has been said that there is a way to scan quantum signatures. “The captain said. “Yes I know the technique.”the chief said.
“Get with Mr. Data. Check the debris quntrum signature. If we can verify that it is from another reality. Then we can try to determine how it got hear!”Jack said.
“If it is from another reality. I wonder was it destroyed hear or in it’s reality of origin!”the chief asked.
“It could be an important question in all of this!”the captain said.
Planet
Jack emerged on the planet. He went over to where a team was. The team included the chief engineer and the android commander. “Sir! We have concluded the scan of the ship”s quantum signature. We have determined that it is from a separate reality. “Data reported.
“That explains that. Now we have one mystery solved. It has Springed  several more. ” Jack said.
” I want to scan the General vicinity for  any sign of an inter-dimensional  instability. I want to find the source of this incursion. I want the Debra brought to the ship. I want to get underway as soon as possible!” Jack ordered. The crew agreed.
End of part three.
Notes
Lt. Qinceros is the future commander Qinceros. He was the commander of the starbase in “100001” the episode with the bynars. He was played by gene dynansky who also appeared in tos episodes,”muds women”and “Mark of gideon “the name Orphil was not mentioned or air. It appeared in the star trek the next generation companion. They probably got it from the script.
Commander haftel is the future admiral haftel. He was seen in “the offspring ” he was played by Nicholas coaster best known for his role on the soap Santa Barbra. In the episode he commanded the daystorm annex.
The events of the original series are the same in this reality. All of the events are the same until the death

Q in the life part three

“Being summoned to the continuum is not new to me. It is fairly common. It has been a while humanly speaking sence I was called to the continum’s woodshed as it were. Hear I am regardless. ”
“The continuum tries to paint itself as one big monolithic entity. In many respects we are. We all have different personalities. My personality often clashes with others in the continuum. On a few occasions all of them . that is how it is. I don’t beleve that I am a black sheep but some might see me that way!”
“Q! Are you getting tired of being called before the continuum? We tire of calling you all the time?”a who seamed to be In charge asked.”I know we are!”another q said.
“I understand what I did may have violated the letter of your directive…”q said. “May have ? It clearly did. You cannot honestly deny that can you?” the second q asked.
“There are mitigating circumstances!”q said. “There usually are with you. You cannot just say, ‘i was wrong and it won’t happen again !” the q judge said.
“With all due respect I do t feel that I was wrong and it probably will happen again!  “Q said.
“We all know that to be true!” the second q who looked like a judge commented. “I beleve You we’re wrong to order me to observe only. No one benefits from the destruction of the enterprise in there first year of operation!”q said.
“That s not totally true. The asana do . as do other races currently in a sate of hostilities with the federation!” a q that look liked a female observed.
“You know what would happen if the enterprise is destroyed. I did what I had to do. I do not regret It!”q said.
“You never do. You are reckless. You have always been. ” the female q said. ” that’s not fair!”q said. “But accurate!” the second q said. “The asana must be checked. They cannot be allowed unlimited expansion. We must do what we can. ” q said.
“You can’t decide witch orders you will follow.the continuum depends on order!” q in charge said. “Does It demand on being dull?” q asked.
“This is pointless! We should exile q to the ghost sector and be done with it!” the female q suggested. “You would love that wouldn’t you?”q asked. “A little bit!”the female q asked .
“I am concerned that you so brazenly disregarded our directives. You have indicated that you would do it again if it soured your fancy! The q in charge said.
” You know what is at stake ! You know what is going on. We have to act. We cannot leave this to chance! This is too big. “Q said.
“Excuse us!”the q judge said. “Of course!”q said. The q in charge snapped his fingers and they all vanished. Q was left to wait. Wait for what he did not know.
Then the q returned. It steamed to be an instant. ” q! The q do not agree with the decision to intervene , q may have been correct. Q will allow the timeline to continue from this point on. You may resume the mission. Please don’t mess up too bad. Q do not like cleaning up after q . “the q leader declared.
Then the q vanished. All but q remained.he decided not to stay there. He snapped his fingers and left the area.
Q returned to the enterprise. Everything was stil in suspended animattion. Q went to his station. He snapped his fingers and everything resumed.
” Mr. Quin how did you know ?”captain Jack crushed asked. ” I was able to deduce it by studying the ship. “Q said.
Jack was not so sure. He decided to let it go. “I am gusing that the asana will not hesitate to use the new teckology!”Ryder said. “A wise deduction !” data said. “Send all the data we have to Starfleet command. Prority one.”Jack ordered. “Sending sir!”lt. Yar said. The com officer sent the messege to star fleet.
Ready room
U.s.s enterprise
Jack was working on paper work. The chime rang. “Come In!”Jack said. The door opened. Lt. Commander Deana troy and commander Rycer entered.
“You two look concerned about something!”Jack asked. “Its Mr . quin.his story does not quite pas the smell test!”Ryker said. “I do have some questioned about it myself. Counselor do you sense anything from him?”Jack said. “That is the odd thing I get nothing from him. Absolutly nothing!” Deana said.
“I take it that is unusual?” Jack asked. ” most races I can read. I cannot sense the furengi or the Breen,a few brothers. According to his file he is fully human. ” Deana said.
“Do you think we should be woried?”Jack asked. “I do not know! “Deana said. “He did help us. He saved the ship!”Jack said. “Perhaps Dr. Crusher  should look him over just to be sure! ” Bill said. “Very well make it happen !  Jack ordered. They agreed. “Get to it# dismissed!” Jack ordered.
Bridge
“Mr quin! I want you to report to sickbay!”rycer said.”why,I assure you I feel fine. “Q said. “Please comply with the order lt!” bill ordered. “Of course commander!  “Quin said.
Quin was not sure how he would pull this one off. He would come up with something. He got up and headed to the turbo lift. The door closed.
Sickbay
Q entered. “Reporting as ordered!”Quin said. “Have a seat! “Dr.Crusher ordered. He got up on the bio bed. She took out her recorder. “Normally my feedings would be non existent to human sensors. That would ask more questiones then I care to have asked. I decided that I needed to temporilly give up my abilities. Given the q continuum view of me I did not want to put my faith in there restoration of my abilities. I decided to set it on a timer. ”
She started to scan it.everything appeared to be normal. She rechecked. 
“In doing so ,I aroused the attention of a hideous creature known as the callamarane.apparently he still holds. Grudge. Who knew!”q said. The creature headed for the enterprise.
End of part three.
Notes.
I intent that the leader of the q is the man who commanded the Gray faction during the q cival war in voyages episode,”q and the Gray!” in that episode he was played by harve presnell.
The other male q is q2. That was the q that restored A’s power after q was about to commit a selfles act. He also appeared I. Prayer David’s Novel “q in law !” in “deja q” he was played by Corbin bernson although he was not credited. Bernson is best known for playing arnie Benson I. L.a law. He is now making Christian movies such as Christian  Mingle the movie.
The female q is the q he ended up having a Chile with at the end of the cival war in “q and the Gray” she was played by suzzy plaxton who played lt. Selar In “the schizoid man” and kaylar in “emissary” and “reunion” .
The cellamaerane appeared in “deja q” it also appeared in Greg Cox “q continuum” trilogy.
