Mystery ship part six.

“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.
Star base 345
Control center
“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.
Operations center.
Star base 381
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.
U.s.s enterprise
Bridge
“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.
The enterprise warped into the Sun. Then it went backwards .it went to the past.

Mystery ship part five

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