Mystery ship part seven

“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.
Planet Cousteau
Our universe.
“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 six.

“Captain’s log, the enterprise discovered dibre that appeared to be a federation ship. The ship turned out to be from another reality. This led to a confrontation to an alien ship. Now we are in another reality”
Bridge
“Captian originally we suspected that the debre from the explosion was fixed. Upon deeper scrutiny we have concluded that the wake is expanding. It is at a slow rate but it has gotten wider and wider. “Data reported.
“Do you believe that this will continue ?”Jack asked. “I do ! “Worf announced. “If it continues at the current rate it will envelop the alpha qudrent within filthy earth years.”data said .
“Will the same thing occur in our universe?”bill asked.”I cant give you a definitive answer but I am prety sure the answer is yes!”data said.
“Is this preeminent?”Bill asked .”we have no way to know but I suspect the answer is yes. At least for quite some time. It is probably like any other deluge! There are always as humans call them scars!”data reported.
“Can you find an area not under the curse of the Gray field?”Jack asked. “The closest is the Pendleton sector. !”Worf announced.
“In our reality that is home to star base 345. Hopefully it is in there space as well.
Plot a course helm!”Jack ordered. “Aye sir!”gordi responded.the enterprise went to warp.
Star base 345
Control center
“At least three star syistoms have become a waste land. ” the tech announced. “We have lost so Manny ships. “Commander qunceros said. “We have incoming. It has a star fleet warp signniture however it is not any vessel we have on fille. “A com tech said.
“Do you have a visual?”the commander asked. “Yes I do!”the tech said. “Lets see it!”qinceros ordered.
On the screen,the image of a gigantic starship was displayed. “That is like no other ship we have in the fleet. “Qunceros reported.
“The ships call letters is issued enterprise ncc 1701-d. “The science tech said. ” enterprise? The enterprise name was retired after the destruction of the enterprise b. .there will never  be another enterprise!”Qunceros commented.
“We are being hailed. “The tech said .”on screen !” the commander said. The screen was activated. On the screen was displayed the image Of the enterprise bridge.
“This is captain Jack crusher of the starship enterprise!”Jack said. “That is not possible. Jack crusher died 15 years ago.”Qunceros said.
“Orphil we are from a parallel realty. The deviation that has transformed part of your galaxy into a waste land has had effects on ours as well.”Jack said.
“Why should we trust you captain. Parts of the universe are gone. Why should we just accept your story ar face value?” the second in command asked. ”
“We are both Starfleet officers. We both took an outh to defend the federation and to be loyal to it. I take it very serious!”Jack said.
Argyile stepped out of the shadows.”come on Orphil. We need to help each other! We can’t do this alone!”Argyile said.
“You commanded the argonaught. The ship is missing, assumed destroyed “Qunceros said.”the arganought was destroyed. I saw the dibre. In my reality I was a chief engineer. I naver became a starship captain. ” Argyile said.
“This is hard to believe.”the commander said.” “I understand. We need your help. We have to work together. “Jack said.
The commander found all this hard to take. “Is any of this possible ?”the commander asked. “Theoreticaly yes. It is possible but quite improbable!”the tech said.
“Orphil I know this is all very hard to take in but we don’t have a lot of time. “The chief engineering officer said.
The starbase commander considered his next move. “Captain you May come down. We will fully cooperate. “The commander said. “Thank you commander. We will be right down!”he said. “Please bring commander argyile with you. “The station commander said.
Operations center.
Star base 381
The captain,first officer and the chief enginer emerged inside the command center. “Hello big!”qinqeros said. “It is good to see you Orphil. I gues we are friends In the other reality as well !” the commander said “I don’t know about that!”he said in a jovial manner. The commander laughed.
“I have looked over the research you sent US. It does seam that the expense is expanding and will continue to expand!”the tech said.
“It destroys everything it touches?”the station commander asked. “Yes it does. As it expands it will destroy what it comes into contact with. It renders the area inert. ” the engineering officer said.
“Do we have options?”Jack asked.”I believe the first law of thermodynamics would suggest there is not however we could Break down it’s chemical component into a smaller form. “Data said.
“It is possible. We cannot totally stop the spread of this but we might be able to leson the affects. “The tech commented.
Jack got to thinking . he stepped back a bit. “There may be another option!”Jack declared. “What is that?” the commander said in a confused tone.
“I need to go to planet m145. “Jack said. “That is nothing on planet m 145!”a tech said. “That may not be true . in our reality there is a device that scans the time line and creates a psych profile of universe along with possible predictions. “Jack said.
“You want to Chase mythology?”the tech asked.”in our universe it exist. That is a fact. I believe there is a good chance it exist hear. It can be a help. ” Jack said.
Argyile suspected that Jack was two steps ahead of everyone else.he  knew he already had a plan. He suspected that he knew what his plan was. He suspected that it might work.
Planet m144
A.k.a planet Cousteau
In this reality,there was no colony. The enterprise entered and asummed a standard orbit.
Planet Cousteau
“Sure enough it is hear!”argyile declared. “You doubted me chief?” Jack asked. The chief laughed. “Mr. Data!”Jack ordered. The android went to the device and implemented several commands. The device activated and scanned the time line.
Images were seen. The star fleet engineering division headquarters. Then the me eating between various engineers and top brass. Then argyile working on the Argonauts class starship. Then the lunching of the vessel. Then other vessel of that class. Then smaller vessels with a similar philosophy were launched. Then there was the arms race. Thent the aliens nicknamed the lightning.
Then the device factored in Jack’s idea. It created a prediction of what could happen.
It showed images of the spreading Gray mass.  Planets starships. Also shown was various alien races trying to implore military solutions. The military solution only made things worse. Then images of the federation being disoved. The old member worlds trying to solve the crises on there own.
Then serious wars. Then the gray mass stopping. Not before enveloping most of the alpha quadrant. Then wars between refugees and races who don’t want them in there space. Then on ads becoming raiders and pirates. After a while Jack stoped it.
“I think I have seen enough!”Jack said. ” this varifies what we have feared. ” the chief said .
“Mr. Data I have another set of  calculations I want you to input!”Jack instructed him. “Of course sir!”the android said.

“Time travel ?”Bill asked. “Yes the only answer is to stop this before it started. This time line will spiral out of control. “Jack said.
“Why erase this time line?”yar asked. “The events won’t be contained in one reality. It will spread to our reality and probably to others as well!” Jack said.
“What would our objective be Jack?”Dr.  Crushed asked. “Stop the destruction of that ship. Stop the hostile ship from exploding !” Jack said.
“That is a tall order! ” gordi said. “Yes it will lt. We have no other choice. It might not work. It Will spread out if control. We don’t need the Cousteau device to tell us that. We already can figure out where this will go. ” Jack said.
“I think your right. I think it is a long shot but it could work!”the chief said. “Ok Mr. Data set the ship for time warp. Lets secure the future by saving the past. ” Jack ordered.
“Captains log we are preparing the ship to go back in time. Our gaol is to stop the destruction of the alien dreafnaught and hopefully stop the creation of the spacial wasteland. “He said.
“Time warp computation complete. Ready at your command!”data announced. “Very good. Mr. Laforge make it happen !”Jack ordered.
The enterprise warped into the Sun. Then it went backwards .it went to the past.
