Interest and principles part three

“This is a federation news service special report.  A group calling itself the free coridorn army has clamed responbility for an attack on an andorian craft. While the chancellor of coridon has condemed the attack. Protest against the andorians continue on coridon and alied worlds. ”
“While some andorians acuse the coridorns of staging the original incident. Tensions on both sides apear to be high.”reporter jesica Armstrong said in a news cast.
Qurters of soval
Spock ringed the chime. The door opened. “Ambassador !”spock said. “Something is on thy mind!”soval said. “Indead. I wish to use you as a sounding bored!”spock said. “Of course. I am thy disposal. “He said. “I assume you are aware of the orions atempt to disrupt the babel confrence!”spock said. “Indeed i am. “Soval said. “What if the two incidents are a continuation of that?”Spock asked.
“Its possible. The orions do stand to lose considerable.business if coridon becomes a full federation member. “Soval said.
“You are not convinced?”spock asked. “I am not certain. What troubles me is that the coridon attack on the andorian ship does not seam to be in reponse to the andorian incident. It seams to be pre planed. “Soval said. “A third party. Perhaps orions perhaps not.”spock said. “That is my suspicion. “Soval said.
Earth
Office of the president
” we can confirm that the attack. On the andorian vesel was commited by known radicals. Before this they had never commited violence. They talked only!”the coridon representive said. “Yet now they have commited extensive violence!”the ambassador said.
“The attack on bratair had angered us. I diplore the attack on your ship. We sufered first!”the coridon rep said. “As we conduct an investigation all sides mut work to bring calm!”the president urged the reps. “My government will do what we can!”the andorian said. “As will myine!”the coridon said.
“I apreciate that!”the president.said.
Bathasda planet.
The planet was sealed off. The planet was a hospital not a prison. It was not as heavily shielded as elba but they were carefull. The patcients needed to be safe.
Profesor shivia owen’s ship arived at the obital base. She was cleared to dock. She was granted permission to visit with her morther. The doctors felt her presence could be a help.m
After speaking to the staf,she was escorted to a selarium like area. She sat down. Her morther was brought in. She gave her morther the triditional Vulcan silute. She returned it. They both sat.
“It is agreible to see you morther! Your lack of presence has been felt!”shivea said. “I have been cognisent on your absence in my life as well. “Kinera said.
“I believe that the beatified is behind the rising conflict between the andorians and coridons. “She said.
“Morther! We have discused this before. The beatified was disoved. Many were captured or killed. There bases were destroyed by the Klingons. The beatified does not exist any more!”shivea tried to tell her.
“They have been around sence the fall of the great empires. They would not just give up. They went underground !”she told her daughter.
“Morther i have always respected you. I owe who i am to you.  This behavor is not logical. This is irational. “Shivea said.
“Do you really believe this situation is not the work of outside agitation. The attack on the andorian vessel was not a spontaneous reaction to the attack on bratair. The evidence indicates that this was well planed in advance. Something is going on. “Kinera said.
“The timming of the attack on the andorian ship is suspect. We know that the atempt to stop the babel confrence was perpitrated by the orions. I am open to the posibility of a third party but i cannot believe that is the work of the beatified. “Her daughter said.
“Don’t ignore this. Something is off. You have to see that!” She told her. “I will look into that. ” She assured her.  “Please do. “She admonished her.
“I can’t gurente anything ! I will try to keep an open mind!”she told her. “if coridon and andoria go to war,the telerites will be In a tough spot. If the telerites try to trade with both,either side might give them an altimadom. They side with the andorians,the coridon cry fowel and vice versa. While human and Vulcan may try to stay nutral,the rygelians and ithimites might take sides. This thing will spiral out of control. The federation could distinigrate.this fits the goal of the beatified. “She said. “I will look into it. I cannot promise anything !”she said. “Very well!”kinera said.
Uss enterprise
“Captain’s log,we have randavezed with the u.s.s faragaut. We will be beaming over ambassador soval over to the faraguit. ” Kirk said In his log.
Transporter room.
“I wish you luck ambassador !”kirk said. Sime Vulcans would winch at a saying like that but soval was used to human terminology. “Thank you captain. I may need it. “Soval said. He steped foot on to the pad. “Enerzize mr. Kyile!” Kirk said. Sovel gave the Vulcan solute. Kyile activated the beam. Soval was beemed over to the orther ship.
U.s.s faragout
Transporter room
“Welcome abored. It is an hornor ambassador !” Captain adison mcommic said. “The hornor is myine. You have distinguished yourself. “Sovel said. “Greatings!”the first officer sotril said. He nodded.
The two ships dispersed. The ships went In oposite directions. The faraguit headed for earth. The enterprise headed back to the final fronteer.
Office of security chief gioto
“I was curias who is the orion in charge if operations near babel?”spock asked. “Star fleet security is not totally sure. It is believed that it is ereend ghakule. “Gioto said.
“Where is his base of operations ?”spock asked. “He spends a lot of time on the planet enopoc. “Gioto said. “I see!”spock commented. “Why the interest in the orions?”the chief asked. “I have my reasons commander!” The first officer told the chief of security.
Captain’s qurters.
“Captain! I wish to take a leave of absence.”spock said. “I am suprised. We just left your home planet. You declined any leave. What’s up spock?”kirk asked. “Jim i would ask that you respect my pravicy. “He said. “This is odd!”kirk said. “I understand that but i need you to respect my wishes in this!” Spock said. ‘Very well! “Kirk said.
“Personal log,spock recording. I have taken the shartle galalao to rygel ten. From there i have booked pasege to the planet ecopoc. ”
Ecopoc
The planet was non aligned. The government was corupt. The leaders were subject to bribery by the orions and orther criminal groups.  Many of the intergalatic underworld freqented this world. ”
“I have observed that the key source of information seams to be bars. Emotionall beings seam obsesed with alchole. I have never understood preoccupation with alchole. I have tried to be liberterian on this isue. I do find it unusual as i do with manny humanoid activity. “Spock said in his log.
Spock wore civilian clothing. He pased him off as a merchent. He went inside the bar. He looked around. He saw various cretures from many worlds. There were some from worlds he did not recognize.
Spock saw the orion believed to head up operations in this sector. Spock was convinced if this was an orion operation,ereend gokhul knew about it.
Gokhul had an enterage. They were known orion footsolders. There were new comers. He saw a group of aliens from multiple non aligned worlds. He had acute hearing.
He focused on there words. He also read lips. They were discusing smugling operations. Ghokule assured his business partners that things were chaning. Political boundries would be dramatically different in the next few weeks. Was this a guess or did he have inside information ? If he did have information ?where did he get it?
Spock was convinced a third party was behind all this. He had no idea how to prove it.
U.s.s enterprise bridge
“You really let spock go off on his own?”dr. Mccoy asked. “Bones he is a big boy!”kirk said. “Its not like him!”mccoy asked. “If spock gone off on some task,he has a good reason. I trust him!”kirk said.
“Captain we are getting a distress call from a telerite convoy. They are being refused pasege though andorian space !”uhua said.
“Great we get to some space police dutty! Mr. Checiv set course for the andorian border. Uhua hail the andorian border fleet. “Kirk ordered. “No response !”uhua said. “Dawn!”kirk reaplied.
The enterprise arived at the border. “Captain! The convoy. Several vessels were destroyed. Several wracked. I am detecting evidence of andorian weapons!” Lt hadley at science reported. “Oh my! Uhua send to star fleet prority one!” Kirk said.
The federation council could not ignore this. The andorians would have to be held acontible.kirk knew that this could leed to the andorians leaving the federation. If that happened,the telerites could go to war with the andorians. It would split the federation. What was going on ? Kirk thought.
