Episode one the war begins.
Klingon expeditionary fleet.
“Chancelor I was not expecting you to command the fleet directly. “General kord said.
“I will not share my glory with any one else. “Murkuret said. “Very well.we want to set up a staging area. We believe that we should target the planet qutok. “Admiral tirkel said
“Qutok is not a federation world. “The chancellor said.”no it is not. They have a treaty with them. The federation would interpret it as an act of war. “Kord said.
“No! We must attack the federation directly. There must be no doubt!”the chancellor said. “Sir! We need a staging area. We must do this carefully . without qutok The invasion might not succeed.”g’har said.
The chancellor considered it. “We must target the federation directly.get me a federation target!”mukeret insisted.
“In that case I recommend we hit com relay 47, 46 then charge on donitu base. Then we can take donitu five. The fleet won’t be able to mobilize before we have fortified donitu five!”the overweight General said.
Admiral tirkel did not want to lunch a full scale invasion of the federation without taking qutok but he could not do it without getting the anger of the chancellor .
Bot Tirkel and kord were not overly popular. Kord was old and overweight. He was opinated. He overendulged in alcohol.
Tirkel was a veterin of wars with the federation ,wars with the tholien and nazaka among others. He was apolitical. He spoke his mind even if no one wanted to hear it. Sometimes he said it because he knew no one wanted to hear it.
“Prepare to strike the relay stations then the donitu sector. “The chancellor ordered. The bridge crew agreed.
Relay station 46
The relay station was part of a relay network.the station only had two officers on bored.they coordinated with other com bases. It was a bit lonely.
For the officer in charge ,that was perfect .The officer was an Orion. Hallak perfered quiet and solitude. His fellow tech did not agree. Ensign Bianca crane liked to listen to Andorien hip hop. She liked to engage him in conversation which he was not a big fan of .
“Hallak I just lost contact with relay 47.”Bianca reported. “Are you certain?”the Orion asked. “Yes I am. I can’t raise them or activate override protical. ” she said. “Send to star fleet command. Send possible code 008. ” the Orion said. “Are you sure that’s not overkill ?”she asked . “we are out on the frontier. We are near Klingon space.”the Orion said.
“Yes good point. “She said.she sent the code to the command. The Orion believed that The federation was about to be attacked. The base was about to be attacked.
The Klingon fleet had destroyed the relay station 47. The Klingon fleet hit unmanned setilites. Anything moving was attacked. The Klingon ships neared the base .
“Com lines are down. “Bienca said . “hear we go!”the Orion said. The two were in an e.v.a suit. They put on the helmets. The Klingon ship’s
Broke formation and converged at the base. The Klingon ships fired on the base. The two launched.
They tried to hide from the ships. The Klingon pounded the base. The fleet did not stic around. The fleet headed out.
Star fleet command
” sir! Sir!”a young commander said.”yes. “Admiral diangello said. “Sir! Relay station 47 went off line. Then relay station 46 went off line but before it did,it sent code 008. “The aid said.
“Klingons?”the older admiral asked.”the most logical conclusion sir !”the aid said. ” alright! Order every in the area to relay 46. Order ships not in The area as well. ” he said. “You got it. ” the aid said.
“Captain! Star fleet is ordering all ships to Ray station 47. “The com officer said. “Lt .Leland plot course for the station. Maximum warp. ” captain Robert Wesley ordered. The helm officer complied. “Course plotted and engaged. ” Leland said
The Lexington moved out . the vessel went to warp. The vessel headed to the site of the relay station.
“I have a visual. ” science officer Ben noris said. “On screen!”fleet captain garf ordered. On the view screen was the massive Klingon fleet. “Oh my! ” garf commented.
The federation ships fired on the Klingon ships. The ships were hit.The ships returned fire. The ships were out numbrred. That did not matter. If the Klingons wanted a fight the star fleet ships would give them one.
Paris de la Concorde
President zurek kept to a tight schedule.he never duaviated. It was quite a change from his peedasesor. His predasesor was a denoblian who was known for being lackadaisical. His staf and cabinet had to get use to it. In the early days of his administration,there was a high turnover. People got use to him.
The door opened. “Mr. President! Sory to disturb you. The Klingons invaded donatu . the federation fleet engaged the fleet but was forced to turn back. ” the aid said.
“Wake the cabinet. I want star fleet command there as well. Have the council convegn at once. I am invoking code zero zero eight. ” The president said. “Understood. Right away.”the aid said.
Freighter captive heart
“Why did we go on a trade route that is in the middle of a war zone?”co pilot mia bolt asked .” it was not a war zone when we filed this flight plan?” the freighter captain said .”true” mia said.
“Captain I am detecting two survivors from the relay station. “A tech said. “We have to help them. ” the pilot said. “We are a freighter . “mia said.
“We are all under attack. These two need help.”the captain said. The freighter went to warp.
Halak and bienka had given up hope. They believed there lives we’re over.
Then the freighter moved by.the two we’re brought on bored. The freighter quickly left the area.

Kalera Dragon was the daughter of a former admiral and senator. She was an officer in The star navy but was inactive. She spent most of her. Time conducting scientific research . most of it had no military application . her farther was not thrilled by that.
“You should switch back to military service!”her farther said.”we are not at war farther.besides everyone is conducting military research. It us a crowded field. I want to do something unique. “She said. “You take advantage of out satis. Our nobility was earned by your grandfather and by me. Were it not for our service you would be in a mine working along side remens . don’t forget that.”he said.
“I am not some spoiled aristocrat farther. We are not Klingon. The empire is more then a war machine. ” she said .”we must have a strong military. ” he said.
An aid came in. “Sory to disturb you senator. The Klingons have lunch an invasion of the federation . the Klingon ambassador has asked The Senate to envoke the treaty of hitoria. “The aid said.

We are at war with the federation.today we end the tyreny of terrains.today we put an end to unjust restrictions on free movement of rihansu.we will win. The glory of the empire will be unchecked. “Preator lakeef said.

“Well jess I warned the council that this very thing was going to happen. I warned that The president policy of withdrawing from the Klingon frontier would not produce peace but would encourage the Klingons to strike. Now we are caught totally off guard .” he said.
“Do you blame this on the policies of president zurek?” Jessica asked.”not totally of course. The president unilaterally pulled out of the border. He dismantled bases and colonies. It was a bad move. ” he said.
After the intervue he headed out. He saw a middle aged man. He recognized him. It was st. John talburt. ” what do you want?”hamin said. “The president wants to see you !” he said.
“He cannot keep me from The press. The constitution gives me freedom of speech. I have been a private citizen for five years without a clearance .” hamin said.
