“Wars and rumors of war” part four.

The defient had been dealt a harsh blow. Several stations were ok fire.several officers took fire supreson devices and exstinguised the flame.
The admiral got up. “Shields are at 47 percent! We stil have phasers ,photon and quntrum torpedoes!”kira reported. “Return fire!”the admiral ordered.
The defient fired a full volley of quntrum torpedoes at the dominion warship. The bridge of the hostel vessel  hit.
The aft station exploded. Several recognition were killed instantly.others were seriously injured. There was visible wounds.
The next volley struck near the engine rooom. The volley did not effect the engines. There were explosions nearby . several corridors were decimated.
“I want that ship destroyed! “The General insisted. Kirel knew Carlin well. She and him had been just coworkers . he was her superior at one tines. Now they were married. She knew him . she knew what he was thinking. She did not like what she felt this was leeding.
The General thought it over. The destruction of the defiant would become a rallying cry for the federation .the federation would tear up the treaty of deep space 9. The federation would probably strike the dominion in the gamma quadrant.while the federation alliance was bogged down in the  gamma quadrant the society could quietly gobble up the old zeravien empire.
“Place a protomatter device in a photon torpedo. Target the defiant!”the general said. Kirel was not a pacifist. She did not believe in aggressive warfare. This did not seam like a time to use a weapon of last resort.
“Vesel is back tracking!”neeley reported. “Brace for impact everyone. They are gearing up for a major strike. “The admiral admonished his crew.
The crew prepared the torpedo. The defiant took pot schots at the warship. The warship fired back.it was a half hearted responce. It was designed to buy time for the crew to get the surprise ready to go.
“Our surprise is ready!”The gunner declared.”deploy it at once!”the general ordered.
The defiant hit the warship. It was a fairly significant hit. The warship fired the torpedo. “We have incoming! ” neeley reported. “Evasive action !”Ross ordered.
Nog drove the frigate in the opposite direction. He tried to take it as fast as he could.
“Oh my! This is not a conventional torpedo! It contains protomatter.”Bashir said.
If that torpedo detonated there was no way that the defiant would servive.
The dominion warship went to warp. It got as far away from the torpedo as possible. It did not look back.
The defiant went to maximum warp. If they fired on the  torpedo. It would detonate faster. The results would be the same. 
“Mr nog do you trust me?”admiral Ross asked the furengi. Nog had learned whenever a hu-Mon asked someone if they trusted them,that ment they we’re about to do something very risky. In a case like this,they really had no choice. “Yes sir. I believe I do!”the helm said.
The admiral explaned his plan.it was quite a whopper. Due to the situation it was the only plan that could potentially work.
The torpedo was detonated. The mustle exploded. The wake headed for The light vessel. The defiant fell back. The defiant flew into the center of the explosion.
The defiant was pushed back. Nog used the center of the wake to catapult the ship backwards.the ship was pushed back at high warp. The ship was flung out of the way.
The ship came to a full stop. The shock wave passed by I t kept going. The danger for the defiant and there crew had passed.

Jake sisco was able to get abored one of the relief vessels heading for the site of the attack. The federation guaranteed the right of the press. Jake being the son of Benjamin sisco helped. He was granted permison to be embeded with a relief ship provided he stayed out of the way.
Jake was glad to get out. He found himself out of sorts sense his farther vanished. This was a major story. He would be on the front lines.
Jake was able to aconpony a team to the base. He saw a young officer stare into a wall. “Hi you ok?”Jake asked. It took her a few seconds to come around.
“Hi I think so. “She said .”I’m Jake sisco. I am with the federation news service!”he said. “Great a reporter!”Gabriela Fullerton commented. “Don’t worry I won’t print anything you don’t want me to. “He assured him.
“This took me by surprise. I thought the war was over!”she said “so did we all!” Jake said.

“Lt Reese!”she said .”it’s commander now!” he told her. “Oh I am sorry. I am not up on current events. “She said.
“It is current events that is why we are coming.”lt. Tyne said. “I am not really versed on current events these days lt. “She said. “The marques was all but wiped out by the dominion. Had the dominion not joined the Cardesien,the marques might have worn out the Cardesien and forced some kind of sate hood. “Reese said. “There is disagreement on that. That was one view. “She said.
“It is possible that someone in the marques is trying to reignite the war in order to either get revenge or divert attention so that they can restart the movement?”Reese asked.
“My colony is gone. Many of my close friends are dead. When I get out of hear,I don’t have a  clue  what I want to do when I get out. I don’t have any plans to get revenge!”she tried to assure them.
“Do you know anyone who might?” Tyne asked. “A few come to mind. My gues ! The man you want to look into is a guy named Jack torence . ” she said. “The former ambassador?” Reese asked.”he was quite a fire cracker. Where he was practically the face of the federation,we expected him to be a moderate. Not even close. He was a hawk even by our standards. “She told the two.
