“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.

“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.

“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

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. ”

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.

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.

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.

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.

The asana military was everywhere. They had set up checkpoints on nearly everywhere corner. Things were quiet eerily so.
The human colonest were watching. They were taking mantle notes. They were learning all they could about The military deployments. They would act when the time was right.
The governor and his i her circle were in a cave. “We got more information. The citizens are helping imensly.”Lois said.
U.s.s enterprise
“Captains log,the enterprise has randevezed with much of the federation fleet. Manny are some of the best commanders in the fleet. Many are those I know well. ” Jack said in the log.
In The conference room was captain’s of multiple ships. This included captain walker keel of the u.s.s horatio. Also there was captain Robert desoto of issues. Hood. There was captain tails Scot of the renegade. There was captain rix off use Thomas pain and others.
“The asana have already started to fortify the planet. They are getting ready to construct an orbital base. They are multiple regiments of combat and security forces on the planet. We have limited contact with the planet. “Jack said.
“Sence we are all hear,I assume star fleet plans a direct assault?” keel asked. “We can probably take back the planet fairly easily. I suspect they plan to enploy a gurila total war. They will make it as uncomfortable as possible  with a staggering loss of life amoung civilian and star fleet troops. “Captain Scot said.
“Agreed! It will be bloody. Perhaps the bloodiest confrontation the federation has since the Klingon conflicts in the last century. Perhaps far worse. That is why I want to attempt a different tactic first. “Jack said.
The commanders listened intently to the captain who was basically in charge of the fleet. “There is a moon called Tolkien . half of the moon is virtually hidden from sansors. I want to Use the magnetic field of the moon to propel the enterprise to the colony. We can hide inside the secondary Sun wich is no where near as bright as The primary Sun.we can make contact with the planet. We can sabotage there wormholes. Use it to our advantage!” Jack suggested.
“Why the enterprise?”captain rix asked. “Yes why not use one of the scout ships. Surely there is no reason to use the flagship of the fleet and the federation!  “Scot said.
“I want to make to make contact personaly with the governor and the planetary leadership. I want to assure them We have not not will we abandon them. No Czechoslovakia moment.no sudatonland. “Jack said
“I get that you want to send a message to the colonists. You could send me or the horatio. You would stil send a powerfull a message. “Captain desoto said.
“I understand your positions but I make it a point to never send a subordinate to do something I would not do myself. ” Jack said.
“We trust your commitment . Jack I am willing to do this and I know any one of us is!” captain keel said.
“The decision has been made walker. I understand that this is a but unnerving but so is a peacefull colony in the middle of no where deep in the federation being conqured. I am going!”Jack said.
Walker loved Jack like a brother.he had no desire to publicly take him to task or challenge his decision or his authority.walker decided to back off at least in public.
Captain desoto was not as close as keel was but both considered each other friends. In many ways desoto resembled his late friend Picard beyond the fact they were both French.
The meeting went into a briefing. Then after a while the captain ajurned the meeting . the starship commanders got up from the table. They started to disperse.
Walker stayed behind after everyone left. “You think I am making the wrong decision?”Jack asked. “You can fool the brothers Jack but not me. In your mind you failed Jean luc now you can’t fail Robert. Jack you can’t do everything on your own. Your not super man ! “Keel said.
“I could not save Jean luc,maybe I can save Robert and his family and the other colonest,”Jack said. “You don’t owe Jean luc anything . you don’t have to justify your continued existence. You did not sin by serving or having more kids. If he was hear he would smack you and tell you to smarten up. Jean luc wanted you to servive.he did nit consider his sacrifice a veign or empty one . you hournor his life and his sacrifice for living. “Keel said. “I know what I am doing walker. ” Jack said. “I hope for all our sakes you are. ” keel said.
The captain of the ambassador class vessel left the conference room. Jack stared out of the window . he tried to make sence of all of it.

“Chief you don’t look happy!”Jack said.”that is an under statement sir. This is a crazy scheme. It is pushing the ship way beyond the safety limits. It is a bad idea. “Argyile said.
“Can you make it work?” he asked. “I beleve I can but I got a say I really don’t like it!” chief argyile said .”I  understand. I will note your objections in my log. “Jack said.
“All decks are standing by!”bill said “very good!”Jack said .Commander rycer had little to say. Jack suspected that he had objections to it. Jack felt like this was an acceptable risk.
“Mr. Data Mr laforge let’s do it!”Jack ordered. The enterprise went to the moon. The ship bounced off the moon. The ship was pushed to a high speed. The ship landed near the minor Sun.”we have arrived at the destination “data reported.
“Lt. Yar prepare a security team but small compliment.”he ordered. “Aye sir!”she said. “We will ware civilian clothing. We will use the captains yaught.Bill you have the ship. “Jack said.
“May I speak to you in private?”Bill asked. “Of course !”he said. They went to a corner. “Sir you should not be going to the surface during basically a time of war. “Bill said. “It is critical I go. The planet must know we have not abandoned them.”he told him.
  “I could send that message just as pottently as you could!”Bill said.”perhaps but I am going to any where.” Jack said. “If you die ,I am putting you on report. “He said.”very well!”Jack said.

“The treaty of algeron bars the federation from building there own cloaking device. I can mask our signature.it won’t be fool proof but I beleve it can work. “Data said.”we Will make it work commander. “Jack said.
The two entered the private bay where the scout ship was bearfed. The two entered the craft. The ship launched.
The ship was able to land. The ship landed in a secluded area. Every colony had designated shelter areas. Data had it on file. They proceeded to the caves.
They encountered several of the governors body guards.” “who are you why are you hear?”the guard asked.
“I am from star fleet. I am looking for Robert Picard!”Jack said. A man came out of the shadows.”it has been a long time commander crusher. Excuse me captain. “Robert said.
He was older but it was the man he remembered. It was not easy to see him again. He had to keep his composure. They needed to work together.

“They have a lot of ships !”Louis said. “We cannot hope to stop this!”deputy chief of staf Lee Elson said. “No we do not. Our only hope is star fleet. Order our forces to fu back! We will try to hold out till star fleet arrives. No recistence but no active endorsement. “Robert Picard said.
The asana vessels beamed down ground forces. Forces also landed using trop transports. The crafts landed. The hatch opened and the marines quickly fled the ship. The marines had there phasers ready. They advanced into The citty.
On every street corner,there were The occupying force. The citizens were holed up in there Holmes.
The trips met almost no recidtence. The troops stormed in to the home of the governor.”the governor is gone. “One of the officers  Said to the unit  commander.
Against the wishes of his commanders,keriek Beemed down to the Planet. He went to the government building. “Welcome to the first asana protectorate that once belonged to the federation. ” major ferdkat said.
“Thank you. I wish to adres the population of this planet. ” keriek said. “Of course exclecently. “Ferdjat said. 
The leader went further into the complex. The leader was very happy of how it went. This was the opening salvo in an even bigger war. That he knew.
Robert did not like going into hiding. He felt he had no choice. They went into a cave complex. “I suspect that they are using some kind of dampening field. We have to try to have to get though there jamers.we have to lul the occupation force into a false Sense of security. “Robert said. “What if they never come?”an aid asked.”We will cross that bridge if it comes!”Robert said.

“People of  the planet Cousteau. Forces of the asana empire have anaxed this planet. We have done so without fireing a shot. This anaxation was bloodless,I hope that the administration of this planet will be just as quiet. If you leave us alone I assure you that we will do the same.”

Office of the president
“Mr. President! We have confirmed that the planet Cousteau has been captured by the asana. “Admiral hildalgo said.
“How did they accomplish this?”chief of sath hall chulek of bolias asked. “We beleve they used the wormhole the enterprise encountered.”admiral Gregory quin said.
“Is star fleet on there way ?”president shilek of Vulcan asked.”yes they are madam president ! We are sending everything in the region and some a little further away. The enterprise is going to command the fleet!”hdalgo said.
“Why attack a strategically unimportant sector that they almost certainly cannot hold it for long?” intergalactic security advisor javlok qulin from planet tril.
“We beleve we can take the planet back fairly easy. With the wormhole technology,they could send In reinforcements. Eventually the sector will be reclaimed. Perhaps they figure they can ware us out. Mayby force us to spend resources hear and hit us some where else!”quin said.
The door entered. An aid entered.”madam president ,there is a recorded message. It is purportedly from keriek!”the aid said.
“Play it!”the federation president ordered.the tape was played. “Madam president and members of the federation government. This is president keriek supreme leader of the asana empire. We have anaxed the planet Cousteau. We intend to hold it.we ask you not to try to retake it. If you do, you will be met with over whelming force. Keriek out!” keriek said.
The screen faided. “They intend to hold it?” the chief of staf chulek said.”do you beleve them to be sincere?”the president asked.”without sufficient  information  I beleve we have to assume that that the answer is yes!”admiral hildalgo said.
“I would agree! We will proceede with the plan to retake the colony!”the president said. They all agreed.
U.s.s enterprise
“Captains log,the enterprise is continuing on course to the Gaul syistom where the Cousteau colony is. I find myself very uneasy upon hearing the news that the governor is the older brother of one of my closest friends!”
Ready room
The chime rang. “Come in !”Jack said. The door opened,the ships counselor entered. “Counselor ! “Jack said.
“You have become more and more tense since the enterprise headed for the Gaul syistom !” Deana said.
“Yes I have. “Jack admitted.
“Care to talk about it?”Deana asked.”not really! “Jack said. “I know your file, the governor of the colony is the brother of a close friend who died!”Deana said.
“He was one of my beat friends. Me and walker keel and him. I knew him before I met bevily. Walker introduced me to bev. Picard was The captain. Back then we did not have the rule that bared c.o from participating in Away missions not that Jean luc would have listened. “Jack said.
“You blame for yourself for his death?”Deana asked. “I know there was nothing I could do to save him but I don’t know it. This is bringing everything back. Things I had pushed aside for a long time. I am  really surprised he is leeding a colony. He was a whine grower in lavere France. He barely left the vilege let alone the soller syistom!”Jack said.
“Once again I May hold the power of life and death over a Picard. I hated it then,I don’t like it now! ” Jack said.
“I never met Jean luc Picard.I wonder if my farther knew him.He was a Starfleet officer as well. “Deana said. “He may have. Jean luc was wild in The academy. The minute he graduated from the academy he became instantly serious. He was stick but never cold. “Jack said.
“Bridge to captain crusher! “Data said.”go ahead! “Jack said. ” we have randavezed with most of the fleet. “Data said.”I will be right there.and so it begins!”Jack said.

Coustea
Command post
“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.

U.s.s enterprise D
Qurters of Jack crusher
He had the same dream ever sense the creature had tried to envelop him.it was the event that changed his life in ways he could never quite understand. One that shock him if he knew. 
He was back on the away team. He saw his best friend and commanding officer taking a phaser blast ment on him. Jack ran over to him.
Then the scene flashed ahead to the morgue. Bevily had agreed to come with him to meet the brother of Jean luc.
Jean luc  had spoken about his brother Robert frequently. He knew they not see eye to eye on many things. Robert cared more about the family vineyard. Jean luc had been the only one In his family who had looked to the stars.
Jean luc had been the family favorite. He broke every rule his farther had made and got away with it. Then he broke his parents heart by going to star fleet. It steamed his relationships with his family.
Jack and heavily met up with Robert outside the morgue. “It was good of you to come!”Robert said. “It was the least we could do!”Jack crusher said .he had visible wounds.
They went to the vault. The body was retracted . “It should have been you Jack! You should be dead not him!”Robert declared. The blanket was removed. It was revealed to be him. Then he woke up.
“Jack! .you ok? “Bevily asked. “Yea! Bad dream!” he said. “You have been having a lot of those lately. “Bev said . “I know!”he said. ” you ok Jack?”she asked. “I’m fine bev. ” he said.
He started to get out of bed. “Where are you going?”she asked. “I am going to roam the ship for a bit. Tire myself out!”Jack told her. “Oh ok. “She said.
He kissed her. He then left the quarters. She went back to bed. He went though the hallways. There was little activty right then. Tecknically there was no night of day in space. Most federation starship ran on a 24 Hour day. If you were on day watch you got up when the cronomitor said it was morning and slept when it said it was night.
This reminded him of an event from his past. “Roming the halls at this time a night Jack?”Jean luc Picard said. “I could say the same about you?”Jack said. “True. I still can’t believe this is my ship. It may not be an excelsior or ambassador but I like it. “Jean luc said.
“You think I will ever command a starship?”Jack asked. “Tired of being my understudy Jack. In all seriousness I know you will. You will be a good one!”Picard told him.
  Jack got so lost in thought that he almost ran into lt. Worf. “Sorry Mr. Worf I did not see you there. “The captain said.
“It is quite alright sir!”Worf said. “I am usually not up at this time a night.”Jack said. “I did not think so.”Worf said. “I have a lot on my mind ” Jack said.
“You have seemed restless ever sense the gravity well tried to envelop you!”Worf said. “You noticed.it was probably petty noticible. “Jack said. “A little bit!”Worf said.
“14 years ago my commanding officer and close friend died saving my life. Ever sence then I have felt that I was on borrowed time. I can’t shake it!”Jack said.
“You were given an incredible gift by your former commanding officer. It is your duty to live to the fullest!”Worf said.
“I have tried. Odd I have thought what if I had not lived. I would not have two daughters and a son. I would not have commanded this ship. Funny I bet Picard would command the ship. “He said.
“Despite what could have happened. The most importent is what did happen. You are where you need to be. ” Worf said. Jack hoped that that was true.
Planet Cousteau
The planet was a New colony started a few years earlier .the colony was part of a project ten years in the making. The planet was a collaborative effort betweehn private group’s and teraform command.
Four years ago the actual community was started. People began to move in and start a life. The population included young families just starting out. It also included young adventures. There were middle aged and retires. There were humans and aliens. So far it had been a success.
The capital city was the crowning achievement. In the town square the governor looked over the town. He stil could not believe he was hear. He never thought he would leave France or earth. He was not an adventuer.
Hear he was. After the death of his brother his focus changed. He was different . he had been a committed belchor. He met Marie. They got married and had a son.
The colony was the brain child of a child friend of her brother. Lois talked about nothing but the project. Robert and Lois has never been close. After the death if Jean luc,he was his only link to Jean. Lois was the concept guy but did not have the practical fall though.that was where Robert came in.
Robert did not want to be governor but everyone wanted him to do the job. Finaly he took the job. The planet was in the heart of the federation and not considered in trouble.
Asana ship
Bridge
“We are in position !” the helm officer reported. “Excellent! Procede!” keriek ordered.
The door way opened, several ships entered the worm hole. The wormhole led the ships just outside the planet Cousteau.
End of part one.
Notes
There had not been a lot of details on the death of Jack crusher. It was on an away mission led by Picard. The Information we do have is from Wesley in encounter at farpoint. The other is a dream sequence perpetrated by a telepathic alien trying to steal memories. The flashback is not particularly realuble. I have tried to peace to gather the flashback using those sources.
Robert and his wife and son appeared in “family” Robert was played by Jeremy Kemp.
I did not have a name for this so I called it the Jack crusher chronicles. It is paying homage to terminator the Sarah corner chronicles. There is definate similarities beyond just the title.
