episode 8

“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.

Brothers in arms the conclusion.

“Captains log a surprise invasion of a seemingly insignificant colony deep in the heart of federation had taken several surprising turns. The federation fleet has engaged the asana occupation fleet. We have been able to give them a run for there money.”

“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.

“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.

Jack of all trades part five

“Captains log,it seams that my life is coming full circle. Several years ago I lost a friend and colegue captain Jean luc Picard.back then I spoke to his brother . now once again we are coming face to face. ”
“I am not sure witch part of this mission I am dreading more. Facing the asana fleet or facing colony governor Robert Picard ”
In the cave,Robert headed into the light. Robert looked Jean luc over.they had only met once. Both had left a lasting impression on the orther. ”
Jack looked over Robert.he looked older.it was the same man. “Governor Picard! It has been a long time?” “Jack crusher said. “It has captain. I see you have been promoted. “The governor  observed. “Yes I have”Jack said.
Jack found it very uncomfortable.  He got where he was because of Jean Luc’s death.  When Jean luc Died,Jack was given command of the u.s.s stargazer.   Then after the. Stargazer was lost and presumed destroyed , despite a. Brief sebatical. From. Starship command.,Jack. Became. Prominent on the short list of potential commanders of a galaxy class starship. And eventually captain of the enterprise d.  Jack felt that had Picard lived he would. Probably. On the short list to command the enterprise.
“I wondered if you might be the one to show up. “Robert said. “We don’t take kindly to incursion into our space. We especially do not invasion. This seams like s job for the flagship of the federation. “Jack told him.
“The asana took no chances. They brought a heavily armed fleet. My people were discrete but thorough. “Robert Saud.
An aid gave the captain a pad. He took it. “This information will be very valuable thank you! Jack said.”I assume the fleet is near by! The governor said.
“It is. The plan us this. We want to want to wage a multi prong plan. Our plan is to bounce of the planets secondary Sun and. Cause a momentary emp and create a planet ride power outage. Hear Is the hard part. I need a planet ride revolt. I think you know what this means. I’m asking you a lot. I don’t have an estimate for casualties amoung the civilian population but I expect it to be very high. “Jack said.
Robert thought it over. As governor he was responsible for the health welfare and safety of the colonest. Before today it had been an easy task. Scrapes and brushes and calises we’re the major concern. Now he faces mass casualties.
” once the power is out and the revolt has begun,the fleet will move in. If all things we’re eaquil the federation fleet would easily overwhelm the asana occupation force and retake the planet. The problem is the wormholes .we have no defence yet from them. They could send In more ships!”Jack said.
“Why go to all this trouble? This is a farming colony in a remote region. “Lous said.
“We don’t know. It makes no seance I agree. Once we have secured the planet we Will make sure we get to the bottom of this. I know I am asking a lot. I need your support governor.we cannot hope to accomplish the mission without your help. “Jack said.
“I am a farmer. A vineyard grower. I never wanted to be a politician or sn administrator. I wanted a new challenge. Lois hear convinced me to go along with this crazy scheme. Now I am left with an awfull choice. Virtuel slavery or mass casualties. Most of the colonest have been with the project from it’s very inception. Some were friends of my one I knew sense my chimdhood. Others have become friends really family . sense we arrived I have seen kids become young adults marry and have kids of there own. This is home . we are a family. Now I will watch as citizens colegues friends family die. This is way beyond  everything I can handle. ” Robert said.
“I know that governor. Both these options are bad. I agree. We cannot ignore this. “Jack said.
“I know that captain. You Will have my support and the support of my people! You have sacred task captain. We are pledging everything. If this fails there is no where else for us to go. We are putting everything on the line. Do not let us down. “Robert said.
“I won’t. You have my word. “Jack said. “No offense but I will hold you to it. “Robert said.
After several strategy seasons and other discussions,the crew headed back to the scout craft.
Lous came out. Jean luc told the crew to head on. Jack went over to Lois.
“You will have to forgive Robert. People skills have never been his strong suit. “He said.”it is good to finally meat you ,Jean luc spoke highly of you!”Jack said.
“We got into a lot of trouble growing up. Nothing too serious. I do miss him. He spoke about you. It seemed you took my place out there!”Lous said .
“Jean luc was one if those people you never quite get over. If he were hear he would probably quote Shakespeare. Lois I know my responsibility. I know it is your people that will do most of the dying. I don’t look into that lightly. “Jack said.
“You don’t owe Jean luv anything. He did not consider his sacrifice a debt that had to be repaid. You don’t have to justify your life. I knew him like a brother. He would not ask that of you. You don’t have to cure the tarelien plaugue or negotiate peace between the Klingon and romulons. He would probably kick your but for thinking that way!” Lois said.
“He would. “Jack said. “I know you will come though for us. Not to pay some imaginary debt but because that us who you are. That is the man Jean luc knew you to be. That is the man I am fairly certain you are. “He said .
Jack said his goodbyes. He went back to the craft. He closed the hatch . “lift off Mr. Data !” Jack ordered. The craft left.
Capital city of Mitterrand
Goverment complex
“The federation fleet is Just on the other side. They have amassed everything from syidny class ,Robert,miranda,neba,new Orleans,excelsior and ambassador. “An aid said.
“There have been some odd emissions from the Sun’s. I believe that star fleet may be conducting renonisence missions perhaps even meeting with colony officIal. ” another commander said.
“Jack crusher! He is behind it!”kernel said. “The enterprise Is not involved in the fleet. “Another said. “Jack is hear. It is a destiny to confront each other. One of us will triumph,the other will be dead. “Keriek said.
“We must locate Robert picard and the orther  leaders. We need to have massive crackdown . “captain derex said.
“Not yet. Any crackdown will accelerate action by star fleet. We must be patienct. The battle will acur soon enough!” Keriek said.
“The cabinet and key m.p are insisting you return to asana prime. You are not a. Admiral any more. You are president ,emperor. You must return home!”Derek said.
“No ! I control my own destiny! I will not watch the battle from the home world. I did not seize control of the asana empire to hide in my office. I will lead our people to victory. Tell the cabinet ministers that I will return when the empire is secure. Not before. Remind them that most of them we’re back benches or so far at the bottom of civil service that 80 percent of our population had to die before they were In the line of sucesion. “Keriek said.
Keriek dismissed the advisors And commanders. They quickly left the office. “Why do you risk alienating your ministers and General staf. We need there support. “Jurome his chief of staf said.
“I am the chosen of the jurendra. I need no one but them. None of them are loyal to me or the empire. There loyalties are to the.ages.they would sell me out In a heart beat. They would sell out there families to save themselves. They have no love for me nor I for them. They see me as k see them a means to and end. Nothing more. There will come a time when it will come down to either them or me and I won’t hesitate to dispose of them before they dispose of me.the future does not belong to them. It does not even belong to me. It is the jurendra. “Keriek declared.
“Of course Excellency!” Jerom said.

The mission of star fleet is one of peace and exploration. As a late friend of mine often reminded me star fleet is not a military organization. In s case of attacks we are empowered to defend ourselves and our protecorates. Today we put it all on the line. For the colony below it is everything. We can retreat they cannot . we don’t know how far the asana will go to hold on to the planet. We must assume that they will go scorched earth If they have to. End!”Jack said.

Q in the life part five

“Q’s log,I am observing the enterprise during a pivotal mission . during that misson I became fully human in order to fool a medical scan. While I did fool the scan,it did not fully alleviate the concerns of some sceptical Sr. Officer. At the same time ,it aroused the suspicion of a creature that does not particularly like me. Now the creature has arrived and he is not happy!”
The creature hit the ship with an energy beam. The entire ship was moved around. The ship turned around back. The entire crew was jostled about. ”
“We are at all stop!”gordi reported. Diana continued to try to contact the creature. “It is convinced we are allied with an enemy. A tormentor. I am trying to convince him orther wise but he will not believe me!” Deana exclaimed.
“Why does he think we are allied with it’s enemy!”Rycer said. ” good question Bill. One I wish I knew the answer to. “Jack said.
The ship was hit by another energy beam. The ship’s shields held together. The ship was hit again.
“See if you can ask him what it will take to convince Him to back off?”Jack asked. “I am asking him. He says we have to get rid of of his enemy. Captian I believe he think his enemy is on the ship!”Deana said.
“I am aware of the make up of the crew. If one of there species had a conflict with a space dwelling life form,I am unaware of it. ” data said. “There are myth of space born life forms attacking Klingon. There are not similar to this creature!”word said.
” it is convinced that it’s enemy is on the ship ! “Deana said.” it believes we are allied with it. ” Jack said. ” this is very odd. “Bill said.
“Should we raise ships ?”yar asked.”negative. I don’t want to make the situation worse!  Jack said.
“The calamereane are not very forgiving . it is not clear what it hopes to accomplish. .so long as I an in my current form it is not a threat to me. It has most likely figured out that it a threat to the enterprise. If it cannot harm me it will kill them. I cannot let that happen. I am not sure I can intervene and not have my cover blown. It was a difficult choice. If the enterprise was destroyed it might make an asana victory more likely. That would be horrible for the galaxy”
“My mission was to observe. My satus in the continuum was already tenuous. I was not ready to sacrifice the enterprise quite yet. ”
“I am detecting an unusual energy signature!”data said. A small hole developed in space. It started to get bigger and bigger.
“It does not seam to register on any of my scanners. “Data said. “Yet it is hear”gordi said. “It does seam to be!”data said.
“There are times I really don’t understand Mr. Data. In some ways I understand humans more then I understand him. I barely understand them. Data is a parculler one. ”
In the void was a doorway. The door ways started to oppen. The creature could feel the affect of it.
“The cellamerane Is fearful of a realm void of nothing. It dreads it more then anything. ”
“Cellamerane either you back off or I will send you into the oblivion you so fear. ” q told him.
The callamerane was being stages in to the abyiss. Finaly it relented. Q made the vortex go away.
“The creature is moving off!”yar reported. ” it says we Should not trust hi enemy. He stil thinks we are allied with his enemy .”Deana said.
“This is quite a misunderstanding. I have to wonder. A creature like that. I Would hate to run into his predictor. Whatever is a threat to him would be doubly so to us. “Gordi said.
“Amount the senior staff,Mr laforge was the most amenable. He was the most jovial. The universe could explode and He would still a crack a joke. ”
“The q can’t lose appendages. It is rare that parts of us rendered non functional. It is assumed that q are all powerful. We would like you to think that. We can sucomb to disease but is is rare. We keep that a closely guarded secret. ”
“I am still puzzled by this! He was adminent that we were working with his enemy. He seams like a highly intelligent being. I assume he has abilities we do not!”Bill said.
“Is it possible we have an intruder on bored ?”worf said. “We have no evidence that this creture is more advanced the us when it comes to intelligence. It could be acting on instinct. “Q as quin said.
“It is difficult for me to determine intelligence from just observation. I am reluctant to assume that it is a based life form then we are!”Deana said.
” Mr .worf scan the ship for any life form or anything out of the ordinary!” Jack said. “Are sir!”worf said.
“Of course he would not find anything. That would not stop him form looking. I feared captain crusher was not going to let this go. I did not reveal myself to them. Not yet. The existence of the continue in this reality had to be kept hidden. That I knew. ”
“One day we might reveal ourselves but it could not be today. Usually I disagreed with the continuum on many things. I was a free spirit. On this I did agree. This universe must function with us in the background.at least for now.”
Worf checked and rechecked but found nothing. There was nothing to find. Not that could be detected by the scanning equipment he was using. Lack of result would not put this issue to bed. It would frustrate them. It would further convince them that something was up. They would be more determined that there was a problem and was more determined to find it.q needed this to die down. That was not happening.
Ready room.
“I cannot find any evidence of any thing . that does not mean there is nothing. I just cannot detect it. “Worf said.
“Something is up ,I am sure of it!”Bill said. “Well I want to keep our eyes open. I don’t want to spend too much more time on it. I see no reason why we can’t get back to our mission. “Jack said. They agreed.
They dismished the meeting. Worf,Bill,Deanna and yar left the ready room. The door closed.
Jack had no idea what was going on. He was not sure what was going on. He suspected something was. If it was it would ber revealed soon enough.

“Captain’s personal log,my wife,my best friend,the love of my life has been captured by a group of bounty hunters that work for a mining consortium. Working with the local authroities,we are ready to atempt a rescue mission. ” jack said in his log.
  The strike teams had prepared to move out. The egress to the forest area was fully sicured. A command post was set up.
Some would stay behind while orthers would move out. The goal was to use overwhelming force. They would seround the hostile emcampment then seize it. Every one knew it would not be that easy. While it seamed like it would be a cake walk but jack crusher and lt. Yar knew better.
“Are you ready?” Colnel ucrat asked. “Ready as i will ever be i supose!”jack said. “Lets do it!”yar said in response.
The swat team moved out. There were multiple units. Some were on foot. Others were in vehicles specificaly designed for rough terain.
Jack was extremely aprehensive. He tried not to show it. He knew that the bounty hunters had no chance of wining. That was not his fear. He feared that they might go scorched earth. He feared bevily might get caught in the crosfire or worse.
If something happened to her,he would never forgive himself. Odd he always feared that he might be killed leaving bev to raise there children alone. Now he feared the oposite might happen. This scared him. He did not want to have to go though life without her. He calmed himself . He did not have to face that now. It had not happened. He was hopeful that it would not happen.
At the encampment bevily said little. She tried to avoid talking to her captors. She also tried to not cause any trouble. She hoped this would be over soon.
She just wanted to be back with her husband. She wanted to be back with her children,her family.she wanted this to be all over and soon.
  She did not think too much about an unfaborable outcome. She kept teling herself not to. Jack had been thorough manny troubling events and came though them. She had as well.
As a child she was on arveda three though a deadly plaugue. She and her grandmother servived though discovering erbs on the planet.
As a star fleet officer she had several trails she had to endured.she was confident that she could get through this one as well. She would try.
The bounty hunters were planing there next course of action. They knew that it was blique. They had little chance of wining. They knew it.
“Odd. We are not usually on the losing side?”bezek commented.”i know. We are not in the telcrit sector any more are we?”rulnof said. “I am glad that the telcrit system is sicure. There is that!”qozik said.
“Indeed. If we don’t catch up with shalnof,someone will. It is inevitable. He will be recaptured or killed eventually. That i know!”rulnof declared.
The asult forces got closer to the encampment. The team set up blokades. They had a staging area.
“You ok sir?”yar asked. “Not at all but that is to be expected. “Jack said. “I unserstand!” Yar said.
On ucrat’s order,the asault team stormed the area where the slavers were located. The tropers opened fire.
The slavers returned fire. Jack rushed in. He fired then ducked then fired. He stunned several of the thugs. He had to avoid being hit.
He was acting in an eratic manner. Were his wife and morther of his children not in danger,he would probably not be acting in this mannor. This was not a normal ocurence.
Yar tried to cover her captain.he was not making it easy. She was not usually a fan of the policy that mandates the exo lead the away team not the captain,but in this she suspected that he should have stayed behind. That was a mute debate at this point. She focused on the task at hand. In this case it was protecting the captain and stoping the telcrit group.
Romos,Hudson and youngblood covered yar. Yar and jack went at the thugs. Jack ran for bevily. He ducked several impact. He fired back.
“Mr. Youngblood! The merchant from alpha cenaris!” Rulnof said. “My name is crusher jack crusher. Captain of the federation starship enterprise. Your holding my wife hostege!”jack said.
Rulnof came at jack. Jack kicked him to the ground. He was about to be hit. Yar stuned rulnof.
“Jack!” Bevily said. She ran to him. He protected her. The battle came to an abrupt end.
“Captain’s log,the stand off with the talcrit group has come to an end. Most of the captors were captured. Two were killed in the raid. Fortunently none of the away team or planitary force were killed.”
Jack went over to bevily. He huged her. “Bev I’m sory. My grandmorther used to always say,’never make a promise life won’t let you keep.’ I really tried to have an acual vacation!”jack said. She kissed him. “Your fine jack! I love you. This is one aniversery i will never forget!”she said. “Next year picnic on the hollow deck! “He said. “Sounds good!’ She reaplied.
“For now i am free i supose. I suspect i will never be fully free. They won’t stop !”shalnof said. “Don’t give up. Don’t let them win!”bevily said. “I will try!”shalnof said. “I am not letting him out of my site”his wife  said. “Good idea!”jack said. “I wish you all the best!”jack said.they thanked them.

“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.

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.
Planet adaren
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.
