“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.

“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.

” 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.

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.
End of part three.
Notes
Lt. Qinceros is the future commander Qinceros. He was the commander of the starbase in “100001” the episode with the bynars. He was played by gene dynansky who also appeared in tos episodes,”muds women”and “Mark of gideon “the name Orphil was not mentioned or air. It appeared in the star trek the next generation companion. They probably got it from the script.
Commander haftel is the future admiral haftel. He was seen in “the offspring ” he was played by Nicholas coaster best known for his role on the soap Santa Barbra. In the episode he commanded the daystorm annex.
The events of the original series are the same in this reality. All of the events are the same until the death

U.s.s horatio

Under star fleet poetical,when there are more then one ship involved in a situation,the commander of the largest vessel commands the mission. In the absence of the enterprise,the next in line was the ambassador class vessel horatio. With crusher gone,captain walker keel was in command.
“Captain! Incoming message from the enterprise, they are about to procede. “The tactical officer said. “Ok order the fleet to stand by. It is almost time!”keel said.
Planet coustea
Cave.
“Sir! The order just came in !”Lois said. “Send the planetwide order. There is no turning back now. “It will be a shamefull matter for the king if these men die badly'”Robert said. “Funy I don’t think I have ever heard you quote Shakespeare. “Lois observed. “It seams to apply.maybe Jean luc rubbed off on me more then I want to admit!”Robert said.
All over the planet,the rebellion began in Ernest. The population of the colony staged massive protest of the occupation. While the protes were non violent,the people involved knew that the response of the occupation force would be anything but.
While the occupation had been benevolent,the comfortable of slavery was still slavery. The asana were erratic.they were unstable. They were whimsical. They were touchy. The most inconsiqencial act of unintentional disrespect could be misinterpreted as an insult and be answered with disporticional retribution. The ovulation had to be dealt with now.
In orbit the enterprise went to  maximum warp. The vessel used the gravity of the secondary Sun to be propelled to the planet. It took percison flying by gordi. While word at one of the science station activated the em pulse data and yar had designed.
The pulse eminated to all corners of the planet. The enterprise then got out of the way. It went to warp. The ship left the orbit of the planet quickly.
Government complex
“There is a massive indirection all over the planet!”the second in command informed Keriek. “I sm declaring a planet wide insurrection…”the leader said. Before the admiral termed emperor and military governor could get out the rest of his order,the room went dark.
Keriek was very angry at this development. “Report!”the admiral demanded. ” excelentcy! The power is off line. I believe it may be planet wide!”a tech reported.
How could this have happened? The admiral was astonished. They had believed they considered every contingent. What they had not factored in there evasions was the creativity of an android lt commander named data.
All over the planet the power was out the rebellion was In full swing. The occupation force was overwhelmed . This was only the beginning.

“The Planet is almost totally dark Sir. Mr. Data ‘s plan appears to be sucesfull. “Yar reported. “Did you doubt me lt?”data said. “No! Of course not commander!”she replied. 
“Tasha send to fleet command,move in !”Jack ordered.”sending now!”the eastern European female tactical officer responded. She quickly sent the order to the u.s.s horatio.
U.s.s horatio
Bridge
“We are instructed to go In!”the tactical officer informed the captain. “Order the fleet to move out! The time is now!”keel said.
The ships moved out. The fleet had everything from frigates to ambassador class. The fleet was impressive. So was the asana.
Asana flagship
“Federation fleet is moving out. They are heading on a direct intercept course for us!”the sandor tech reported.
“Break formation. Intercept that fleet!”captain hirjez ordered. The ship broke formation.the asana ship plotted an intercept course of there own. The two fleet headed straight for each other.
The u.s.s renegade got off the first shot. The frigate fired a full volley of photon torpedoes. The torpedoes smashed into the nearest enemy warship. Two warship fired on the renegade. The Thomas pain dodged there fire. The renegade narrowly escaped a fire ball.
The battle was in full force. Both sides engaged the orther. Both sides inflicted heavy casualties on the orther.
A New orlions class vessel was sliced In half by a asana warship. The vessel then exploded. The warship was hit by the hood.
On the planet,the asana could nit use there ground based mistle or there air based vessels or equipment. Using hand phaser and rifles they did just as much damage. They shoot anything that was not asana. They used there weapons at budings.it was not as efficient as bombs or mistles but it worked.
It was not as deadly as it could be. It was deadly enough. As an early 21st century earth professor Seth widgets on observed ,”dead was dead” unfortunately there was plenty of that.
Thanks to chief argyile a dampening field was established. It stoped at least temporarily any more ships coming though via a wormhole.
This was the first battle waged by star fleet since the timed incident in the early days of the 24th century. The federation may be a little rusty but was ready. The federation and enemy forces were just about evenly matched.
The federation had home field advantage. They knew the terrain. This was there home. This was personal.the colony was family. Though many of the crew had no ties to the commonest,none of that mattered.
Several ships had been destroyed. Many more were damaged. The star fleet had taken out several
Of the enemy as well.
“We have to get pass the enemy lines. Order all ship’s to get pass the battle lines. The uss renegade tried to get pass the blockade. The vessel went up and down. The shipping though. Several ships followed though.
The asana fleet was overwhelmed. The enterprise headed to the Planet. Several ships headed to the enterprise. Several scout ships covered them.
“Send to enemy fleet! Order them to surrender!” Jack said. He hoped that the asana would not be fool hardy. There was no way they could hold this world. That did not mean they would just Give it away.this could get berry bloody very fast. The ball was now in the asana’s court. What would there next move be?

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.
Coridor
“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.

“The space above the planet is under our control Excellency!”the tactical officer Informed the captain.
“Very good. This was the easy part. It is going to get a lot harder after this!”keriek ordered.

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.

“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.

“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.

“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.

“Brothers in arms ” part two

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.
