“Now clear of the enterprise. “Uhua reported. “Now heading for the planet new vulcan.”spock said.”course plotted. Engaging now. ” uhua answered. The shartle craft went in an oposite ditection from the enterprise. The shartle headed for new vulcan.
Proto vulcan ship.
Office of zarkan.
The chime rang. “Come” zarkan said. The door opened, sybok entrted. “The federation fleet is still licking its wounds. Several ships are are on an intercept course. Ships loyal to us are also on there way. “Sybok said.
“Good. I have been catching up for galactic politics. A lot has changed. Empires have risen and fallwn only to be replaced by empires who have also rissen and fallen. I understand manny of our people fled the old homeworld. One of these groups is the romulans. I would like to reach out to them. “Zarkan said.
“I would advise against them. They are eratic. They are whimsical. They are militaristic. They may see you and a vulcan empire as a competitors. Any alliance between us and them would be with us as jr partner. “Sybok told him.
“We are the same race.i knew the founder of the romulans. He was an acolyte. I cant beve that we cannot have a reunification with them.”zarkan said.
“In time perhaps. Let us build up the new vulcan sate first. Later on we can perhaps open a dialougue but not now. “Sybok said.
“I want a new age. The new vulcan order. This order must be for all vulcans. This must include our brothers and sisters on romulis. “Zarkan said.
“I urge you to reconsider that. The romulans cannot be trusted. Things have changed sense your days. We should focus on vulcans. “Sybok said.
“We will table this debate for now. I am not totaly convinced to go along with your point of view. I will defer to your wisdom for now. “Zarkan said. “I appreciate that excelentcy.” sybok said.
“I am saddened by the plight of our people. Displaced. Directionless. I can give that direction. ” zarkan said.
“I know you stole biological weapons. I ask you not to use them.”sybok said. “I cant tie my own hands. I perfer to win this war on the up and up.conventional warfare is preferable. The fact is we are undermaned and out gunned. We may have no choice. Your people brought this upon yourself. You clung to pacifism.it is about to bite you in the but. I will try not to use them. I cannot make any promises. I will not tie my own hands sybok. If push comes to shove i will use them. “Zarkan assured him.
Sybok did not like that answer. He did not like it at all. He did not expect him to be like this. He was not what he expected. He was very confused. He did not think that this would play out likw this. He should have but he did not. Some times people see what he wanted to see.this was what comonly happened.
“I will not take up any more of your time. “Sybok said. “You are dismissed. “Zarkan said. The vulcan left the bridge. The door closed. The closed.
Zarkan was troubled by his conversation with sybok.sybok brought him to power. Now sybok was wavering. He was a meens to an end. Had he out lived his usefulness.for now he was stil needed. If he became a liability he would be delt with. No one was indispensable. The only thing that matered was winning. Zarkan deternined to win at all coast.
Sarek went to visit his old friend sivol. He filled the older vulcan on what happened in the meeting. “You cannot be sure that this zarkan is the same as the zarkan that was overthown before surek. “Soval said.
“I agree with that sivol. The fact that this zarkan has come out of no where leeds me to suspect that this man caling himself zarkan could be zarkan the last. “Sarek told him.
“Sybok has realy to qote humans has realy steped into it this time. “Sarek said. “It seams that he has. “I know that this is not how you would have wanted things to go for sybok. ” sovel said. “Indeed it is not. ” sarek said. “He could come come around. “Soval said. “He could at that. I just fear that it may be too late for us all. “Sarek said.
“I have located the proto vulcan ships. More vesels have joined the task force. ” ilisia reported.
“Send coordinates to all alied ships. ” the captain said. “Sending” palmer said.
“I have located a single warship. It is heading for the fleet. We might be able to keep them from the rest of the fleet. “Sarah said.
“Send coordinates to the helm.mr. oneil plot an intercept. Lets stop that ship. “Warren said. Oneil got the corse and ploted it. The enterprise headed for the single ship. The goal was to head it off at the pass.
The frontier headed for the warship. The warship detected the frontier and set an intercept course of its own. Both had weapons on stand by.
The vulcan war ship got off the first schot. It fired a volley of phasers at the war ship. “Shields holding. Minnor damege on several decks.”steve said.
“Return fire!”warren ordered. The frontier fired on the warship. “We did some damege but not enough.”steve said. “This is an old ship but they have made a lot of upgrades. ” ilisia said.
“Of course they did. “Warren said.the frontier was hit. “Shields at 77 percent. ” steve reported. “Get me a target people! ” warren ordered. Sarah studied the ship. She found a target. Thr frontier fired on a non critical part of the ship. The frontier folowed up by firing aditional shots.
The warship fired on the frontier. The frontier was hit. “Shields at seventy percent. “Steve reported.”we have an incoming. “Ilisia said.
“Another regressive ship?”warren asked. “Negitive. It is a klingon vessel.”ilisia said.
The klingon war cruser fired a series of disruptor on the. Proto vulcqn vessel. Thr frontier fired as well. Both ships did not give them time to catch there breath.
“There shields are down. “Steve anounced. “Advise the vulcan ship to stand down. “Warren said. The klingon ship fired. “Order that ship to stand down!”waren said. Before palmer could send the message, the vulcan ship exploded.
“Dawn it! Get me the klingon commander now! “Warren insisted. Lt. Palmer activated the com system. “They are responding ” palmer said.
The view screen displayed the bridge of the klingon battle cruser.”this is captain warren burgele of the federation starship frontier. “He said.
“I am khas of the inperial klingon vessel tizrek. “He said. “This is federation space. You are trespassing into our territory. While i appreciate your help,you had no right to destroy that vessel.i wished to interogate the crew. “Warren said.
“They are the enemy. This is war.in war you destroy the enemy. Interrogation is irrelevant. Conquest is the only answer. “Khas told the star fleet commander.
“You had no right to come into our space. You commited an act of war against the federation khas. “Warren said.
“We are at war with the vulcans that destoyed our base and stole our weapons. Our laws alow us to persue an enemy even inside soveregn teritory of non aligned planetary nations. ” khas said.
“Give me one good reason i should not blow you out of the stars?”warren asked. “We are on the same side captain.we want the same thing. We want to see this terrorist network dismantled. “Khas said.
“You built these weapons. I have a feeling they were designed to be used in a war against us. I dont see your people as the inocent party. The fact is you built a pendoras box and it got away from you.now your trying to cleen up your own mess before you guys get burned. Rerurn to your side of the border. We will deal with this problem on our own terms. “Warren said.
“We are klingons! We solve our own problems our own way. “Khas said. The screen went dark. “The ship has gone to warp.”steve reported. “Do we persue? “Oneal asked.”Negitive we havr bigger fish to fry. Mantain course for The vulcan fleet. “Waren ordered.”aye sir.”oneal said.
“Inform sat fleet about the klingons. I hope they lodged a protest. “Warren said. “Sending”palmer said.

“Now nearing new vulcan space.”uhua said. “Very good. Odd it is my home but i have nevet been there. “Spock said. “I gues you realy cant go home again. I can never realy undetstand. It is unthinkable yet you have to live with it.”uhua said. “I try to muddle though it as best as i can. It os not easy. “Spock said.
“Incoming ship. Combat ship. Non aligned. ” computor said.”evasive action”spock ordered. The ship tried to get away.
“Nyota you must get to an esape pod. “Spock said. “I can’t leave without you spock!”she said. “It is paramount that you do. “Spock said.he gets ready to perform a mind meld. “Please tell me your not trying to transfer your katra to me.”uhua remarked. “No i have a message for my farther. ” spock told her.
He performed the meld. Then he helped her on a pod. “I love you”he told her. “I have always known. I love you too. Stay alive!”she said.
The pod lunched. The pod Headed away. The shartle kept going. The shartle was tractored into the bay. Spock hoped uhua would make it to vulcan.
Office of zarkan
“The zorek has commander spock. His mate got away in a pod. “Zordol said. “No matter.i want spock. I have so wanted to meet him. He could be an ally of a liability. “Zarkan said. “Sybok has no knowledge of this.”zordol said. “Speaking of liabilities. I grow concerned about sybok. He found me. Revived me. He does not have what it takes. He is too soft. He dors stomich a revolution. He may have to be nutralized. I hate to do it. I owe him a great debt of gratitdew. We are too close. We cannot lose again. We undetmasted the opposition before. We cannot do it again. We risk losing everything. “Zarkan said.
“I myself grow weary of sybok. He has cloat among the rrgresivese. We may tisk losing them. We need alies. ” zorbol said.”watch him. If he betrays us we may be able to justifyjustifyg with him. “Zarkan said. “Understood. “Zarbol said.
“More ships have joined zarkan’s fleet.”ilisia said. “More of our ships are on the way. “Palmer said. “They might be able to take over new vulcan. Once they take the planet. It might be difficult to get it back. “Steve said.”i know. Beleve me i know. “Warren said.
Sarah was concerned by what he said.he could see it in her eyes. She was a child of vulcan. This was dificult.
“Sir we are just getting word that the planet arnex was just destoyed. A combined viral war head struck the planet. The planet is gone. “Ilisia said. “There planet was not habited. “Steve said. “Why hit an uninhibited planet?” oneal asked.”a test a demonstration. A warning.”warren said.
Planet new vulcan
The pod was picked up by a vulcan potrol ship. Uhua was taken to the planet imidiately. Uhua was escorted to the home of former ambassador sovel.
Uhua had great respect for ambassador sarrek,spock’s farther.she considered him a potential farther in law. She had corresponded with him while the enterprise was involved in deep space research.
“It is quite agreeable to see you again Nyota. “Sarek said. “It is good to see you ambassador as well.i wished that it was under better circumstances. “Uhua said.”as do i. I have learned to accept the negitive and the posisitive. They both offer valuble lessons. ” sarek said.
“Ambassador sovel. Greatings.your banter with admiral archer for legendary and your deelings with the Andorian shran. “Uhua said. “I am certain that they were. “Sovel said.
“Ambassador i have a mesege from spock. “Uhua told sarek. “May i join your mind?”sarek asked. “Of course! ” she said.
He placed his hand on her temples. “My mind to your mind. My thoughts to your thoughts. Our mindsare merging. Our minds are one. “Sarek said.
He tried to acess her mind. He saw images. Her childhood. Growing up in the united sates of africa. Studying linguistic. Meeting kirk at that bar in iowa. Interaction with spock. The incident on qonos. The destruction of the enterprise at tge hands of the swarm. Then he found the messege.
“Farther. I wish i could be hear in person. ” spock told him. “As do i my son. “Sarek said. “These are precarious times for our people. We are on the edge of a clif. I fear we nay not be able to avoid it.”spock told him.
“I too have suspected that spock. “Sarek said. “The disident group atempted to assassinate me. They had a sleeper agent within the enterprise. I suspect she was not the only one. There may be more within star fleet or in the federation or on new vulcan. I suspect the actual membership in this orginization is small. They are well planed. They have there proverbial bases covered. ” spock said. “It seams they do. ” sarek said.
“The fact they have captured me is important. I do not know if they will kill me or attempts to recruit me or interogate me. I will do what i can to thawt there plans”spock said.
“I know you will my son. I will do all i can to thawt them on my end. “Sarek assured him. “I have no doubt.”spock said.”i will rescue you if i can. “Sarek said. “I know that. “Spock said.
Sarek raised his hand and gave the salute. Spock reciprocated. “Peace and long life. “Sarek said. “Live long and prosper. ” spock said.
The link was severed. “I receved his message. “Sarek said.”sir.arnex was destroyed. A combination of tri cobalt and a bio weapon. “An aid said. “Oh my. “Sovel said.
The turbo lift opened, sybok and ston enteted. “How dare you detonate a weapon of planetary destruction . “sybok said.
“Watch yourself sybok. You are addressing the monarch of the vulcan people. ” Zordol said.
“I revived you. I made all this posible. Without me you would be in a deep freze headed for a black hole. “Sybok said.
“You are nothing but a smal never was who wishes he were a has been.i do not intend to use the dirty weapon unles i have to.it is a weapon of last resort. My people are weak defeated. We must rise. I cannot tie my hands. I will not. ” zarkan said.
“Sir our guest has arived. “Zordol said. “Excellent. Have him brought to the bridge. ” zarkan said.
The frontier arived at the staging area. The frontier joined the rest of the fleet.
Spock was brought to the bridge. Sybok was shocked to see him.as was tpring. Tpring had been bethrothed to spock.she chose ston over him. “We meet at last Spock! “Zarkan said.
End of part five.
Zarkan meets Spock. Sybok takes a risk in enlisting the help of spock . the federation fleet faces zarkan agqin. Warren has doubts about tsarah.
