“Captain’s log,at the zubarien and atar request we are atempting to remove mines left over from there war. Our mission is to nutrilize the mines. “Captain kirk said.
“Jim! This is crazy. You realy think that it will be easy to remove these mines?”dr. Mccoy remarked.
“No bones,i dont think it will be easy. If it was they would do it. This is importent.these two races wont be able to traval and trade. This area has become a no mans land. “Kirj said.
“I think its funy that we are the ones expected to do the dying. “Mccoy said. Kirk got into the e.v.a suits.
Kirk went to spock and the rest of the team. The team moved out. The airlock opened.they moved out into open space.
Spock was as he always was. He was serious and stoic. He was focused and concintrated. He focused on the task at hand.
Spock knew that uhua not like him taking unnecessary risk. He preferred not to. For some reason,working alongside kirk,he did not have to look for trouble trouble always found him.
Kirk,spock and the team went just near the mines. Kirk ordered the team to stop. Spock modified a tricorder to scan for mines. Spock was hoping to deactivate these mines quickly.
Spock located what he preceved was the master mine. Spock began a mine meld. Uhua did not like this plan. He assured her he could do this sucessfully.
It was hardly a fool proof plan. Nothing in life was fool proof. Spock understood that well. Uhua did too. She wished Spock was not so blunt. He never saw the human equation. Everything was juwt a task. Everything was acedemic.he never saw the real universe implication. Discussing potentially morbitity to spock was no different then discussing a golf game. Kirk seemed to encourege it. Kirk was a risk taker. He rushed in where fools feared to tread. Spock joined him. Uhua swore if kirk was determined to strom grethor ,spock would form a plan and a statistical anylises on the odds of sucess.
Uhua loved and hated that about spock. She felt similar feelings about kirk. In a way kirk enabled Spock. In another way,spock enabled kirk. They formed a dangerous syimbiotic relationship. It was there strength as well. There collaboration saved earth from nero,saved star fleet headquarters from kahn and the yorktown base from krall or captain Edison. Could it stop these mines
Spock engaged the meld. He saw a grid. He had acesed the network’s main computor. He was able to circumvent the mine control. The mines decloaked and became inert.
“That was way too easy.” mccoy said. “Bones i thought you would be happy. No casualties. Not even a callous. “Kirk said. “As a great philoepher once said, “something gota to go wrong cuz im feeling way too dawn good. ” mccoy said.
“Doctor no one regards Nickelback as great philosophers! ” Spock said.”how do you know about archaic earth popular music?”mccoy asked. “I am well versed on multiple subjects.”spock answered.
All of a suden an officer in a space suit went over to spock.she was a vulcan. She held the rank of ensign.she had not been on the enterprise long.
“May i help you?”Spock asked. Sudenly she detonated herself.spock tried to get away. The explosion was smal. Spock barely made it out. The officer was gone.
Dr. Mccoy looked over spock. Uhua held on to him. “Aside from a few singe marks. You apear to be mostly undamaged. ” mccoy told him.
” ceptin i serached eneign tisobsky’s qurters. They were spartin. There were clothung but not much else. There was one personal itom. A book. ‘Ilogic islogical ‘ by a vulcan called eybok.”checov said.
“Sybok?” spock said. “You ok spock?” uhua said. “I know this sybok. We grew up together. ” he said. “Why would this eneign or sybok want to kill you?”mccoy asked. “My people are at a crossroads doctor. It has created a species wide crises of faith if you will. Some have had a leepbof faith. They cling to the teaching of surek. Others are rejecting it. They adviocate a return to the old ways. I am seen as a pivotal person in vulcan sosiety. I am a senior most vulcan serving in star fleet. I am the son of a prominent figure in vulcan government. This could be a plot to futher destabolize vulcan sosiety. ” spock said.
“Is this Sybok a mad man?”mccoy asked. “He has alwwys been a radical. It seams that he has gone off the deep end.”spock said.
“Captain. I wish to take a leave of absence. I want to go to new vulcan. ” spock said. Of course. ” kirk said. “Spock are you not woried that whoever was begind this wont try again. By going to new vulcan you make youself a bigger taeget. “Mccoy said.
“I am aware of that dictor. If there is a move ment to take over vulcan,it needs to be stoped. Tjus has ramifications for the federation.a pre surek government could leave the federtion even try to become a military empire “spock said “because one romulan enpire is not sufucient. ” mccoy said. Kirk leered at him.
“I want to go too. “Uhua said.”nyota it might be safe!”Spock said. “I need to go. I want to protect you. ” uhua said. “Your hardly chivalrous spock!” mccoy said. “Bones your really not helping! “Kirk said. “It is not safe . whoever did this will come after me. Morw so if i go to new vulcan. “Spock said. “Please let ne go with you. “Uhua pleaded. “Very well. ” Spock said.
Once star fleet learned of the plot by zarcan and sybok,they saught to mobilize at once. They ordered commodore robert wesly of the starship lexington to orginize a task force to stop the zarcan.several ships had arived near the staging area. More were on the way.
“How can zarcan think he can stop us. Its four ships vrs the federation fleet. ” commander tom mallery asked.
“Dont unestimate this man. He managed to come in to klingon space. Ravage a secret outpost. Steal secret technology and get out. I am not counting on anything. ” Wesley said.
“We have incoming. “An andorian science officer said. The fleet was ready.
“Now in weapons range “ston reported. “Activate the dust cloud.”zarcan ordered. The vulcan ships deployed the dust cloud.
The cloud enveloped the fleet. “Captain. Sansors everything is down”the science officer reported.”dawn it!”wesley said. The vulcan ships opened fire on the star fleet ships.
The vulcan flagship fired voleys of phasers at a frigate. Thr frigate was on fire. The lead ship imobilized three more ships. The vulcan ships did exstensive damage then moved on.
The ships were in a cripled sate. An aditonal dust cloud enveloped the fleey. Zarcan had bigger fish to fry. He would suceed.
“Captain’s log at the request of commodore robert Wesley, we are heading to join uo with a task force for the perpose of stopping the threat posed by sybok and the mystetious zarcan. “Warren said.
Warren was not sure why sarah wanted him to come to her qurters.anything private could have been delt with in the brrfing room.he rang the chime.she opened the door. He saw a vulcan women he recognized. She was a midwife and live in nany. Why was she hear.it was not bring your governesses to the starship day.
He saw a young girl playing with toy starship. “Mommy made these. This is a new one. It is a kelvin class. It is dIigned for long range exploration and reserch missons. “She said.
“Yes i know. I have been abored one.”he said. She had a child. He never thought she might mary someone else. He looked froward to raising a family with her. “She is your child?”warren asked. “Yes her name is mya. “She said.
They used to talk about baby names.he had sugested myia for a girl. Why did she name her that? “You gave her a human name?”warren asked. “Her middle name is vulcan. ” she said. “Who is her farther?”warren asked.
Then it doned on him. “Is she?”warren asked. “I was going to tell you. Then nero destroyed the old planet vulcan. I was confused. I was not sure what to do.”she said.
“Why did you run away from me?i fell in love with you as a logical vulcan. I did not care wich path you chose. I had seen you to the right of a kolinar master and to the left of a furengi. I would have suported whoever you chose to be. That was never in doubt. Why did you not trust me?” ” he asked.
“I was confused. I had to get away. It was unfair. I know that now. I never finished kolinar. I got pregnant and left. Then i went to new vulcan. I have nothing to say in my defense. It was indefensible. ” she said.
” whatever you drcided i would have suported you a hundred and ten percent. ” he said. ” i was confused. I had to get away. I am sorry.”she said . “captain you are needed on the brdige.”palmer said. “Duty calls. “He said.
He entered the bridge. “Sir the fleet was heavily damaged. The vulcan ships got away. “Steve said. “Can we determine where they are going? “He asked. “At. Present course and speed they are on course for new vulcan. “Ilisia said. “Send to commodore Wesley request permission to pursue. “The captain ordered. “We are given clearence to persue. “Palmer said.
“Helm set an intercept course.”the captain oredered. “Course plotted sir. “Oneil reported. “Engage.”he ordered. The frontier headed for the vulcan ship.
The ships damaged by zarcan worked to repair there ships.they hoped to be able to go after zarcan. They had no idea what his plan was.it was not good.
“The picture of the man called zarkan is found no where in the vulcan or federation data base. the name was popular before the reforms of surek. Mind lords used z in there first name. The last great vulcan dictator was named zarkan.he was overthrown right before surek’s reform took shape. It is no wounder someone would use his name. Zarkan is revered amoung those who want to return to pre surek age. ” sarah said.
“I thought sybok was in charge of this group. It seems that sybok os subvervient to this man. “Ilisia said. “It seams seams that zarkan is in charge. It seams that he is way more fanatical. ” sarah said.
Sarah may have revealed too much. She was not ready to reveal that she was once part of the group. How will star fleet react. How will warren react?
“Ambassador fox.” sarek said. “It is good to see you ambassor sarek. I wish it was under better circumstances. A group of vulcans led by a man naimed zarkan stole experimental technology from the klingons . he is using that technology to wage a war on terror on the federation. It immobilized a task force led by commadore wesley.” the ambassador said.
“You said zarkan?” sarek asked. “I understand that a zarkan led the planet before surek transformed vulcan society. “Fox said. “Yes that is correct. “Sarek said.
“What is it ambassador. If i did not know better i would say you have seen a ghost! “Fox said.
“Zarkan’s fate waa never revealed. He fled the capital but was never found. Some beleved he left the star system. Given our recent deelings with khan ,many believe that he may have been in some kind of suspended animation. ” sarek said.
“You believe that this man could be that zarkan? ” fox asked. “I cannot rule it out ambassador. “Sarek said.”could this lead to a vulcan cival war ? Even cessation? “Fox asked. “Perhaps. Right now it is a smal faction. This is a precariousness time for my people and yours. ” sarek said.
The shartle Galileo lunched from the enterprise. The shartle had spock and uhua. The shartle headed for new vulcan.
End of part four
Spock and uhua heading to new vulcan met trouble as they are chased by members of the pre surek faction.
Sybok and zarkan disagre over how to wage this war.
