Voth city ship
Delta quadrant
2379
Odala was the head of the voth government. Her influence had weined slightly Sense The incident with voyager. She held on to power despite some roadblocks.
The voth influence had never been stronger. Despite the growth of the devore inperium,the voth were not really threatened. The voth and devore stayed away from each other generally.
Minister Odala held a weekly briefing of the sate of affairs before the ruling legislachor. It was fairly routine. The only big issue  was continued use of voth shipping lines by the malon freighters. The voth hardly wanted to risk war with the malon over this. The there was spies of the hierky. Nothing of major conciquence.
Command center
“Sir! The sansors went dark for a moment. It is working again but they were definitely out!”a tech reported. “Anything out of the ordinary?”the watch commander said. “Checking commander!”the tech said.
“Should we inform the first minister?”the com tech said. “Not yet. Lets see what we are dealing with !”the watch commander said.
“Sir we have a ship heading our way. It is a tactical fighter .it is a Vaadwaur!”the teach said.
“Advise them to withdraw at once!”the watch commander advised them. The fighter kept going. The fighter slammed into the ship. The ship exploded. The area was hit.
In the council chamber the members of the parliament felt The blast. “Odala to command center. What is going on?”the minister demanded to know. A Vaadwaur fighter slammed into the rear of the ship. We are accessing the damage. “The commander said
“Have the kitty ship go to full alert have all nearby warship head for us. I want the whole sector on high alert. Stand by alert for the whole voth empire. “Odala said.
“Understood minister. “The commander said. “I want to kept fully apprised by the situation.”of course minister!”the officer of the deck said.
The combined Vaadwaur and society fleet took advantage of the chaos caused by the attack on the citty ship. The ships first attacked a series of unmanned setilites.
The ships then moved in further into the region. The vessels moved quickly to take control of the remote teratory. The plan was to seized the sector with overwhelming force. They hoped that they would not want to brother to retake the sector. They hoped they would back off.

“Detecting incoming vessels. They are voth patrol ships!”the tactical officer said. “How Manny?”jatrair asked.”three ships! They are standard patrol ships!”the tactical officer said.
“Send The avenger,vengience and cross hairs to intercept The vessels. The fleet will stand by!”the admiral ordered. “Aye sir!”the com officer said.
The three warships headed out to the patrol ships. They had weapons standing by. The vessels opened fire on the patrol ships. The warships hit the patrol ships. The ships were unprepared.
The voth ships refused to go quietly.They hit back with everything They had. They fired ans fired. The ships loyal to the society had the advantage. This area was not seen as strategicly important they did not protect it as much. No one seemed interested in attacking it. That made it perfect for the society.
The ships were destroyed. While the society ship moved in. They destroyed any unmanned setilite or other unmanned craft in the area. They quickly moved to fortify the area. They hoped to claim it for The New zerabien empire.

“Minister the attack was perpetrated by the Vaadwaur. The vessel fully matches there design and configuration. “Admiral totlek said. “We have no relations with them!”opposition leader arvien said “the Vaadwaur consider themselves destined to rule the galaxy. Anyone that gets in there way is a threat to that. “The admiral said.
“Was the Vaadwaur behind the invasion in sector 14d4?”education minister lucreta asked. “No it is Avery different design. I suspect that the attack on the city ship was a diversion. I believe that the Vaadwaur are aliens with this mystery race!”admiral zihed said.
“Who are these aliens ?”Odala asked.”the technology and infrastructure are not from this quadrant. These ships originate In the voyager qudrent. Some of the technology is very similar to voyager. “Defense minister deret said.
“Is voyager involved in this?”Odala asked. “That information is inconclusive minister!”the def min said “is it possible they were involved?”Odala asked. “It cannot be rulled in or out!”admiral totlek said.
“Alright I want a build up of our forces at gentic four. I do not want to strike the occupied area yet but I do want to stop them from expending any further. “Odala said.
“We are already working on organizing ships and resources to do that. Admiral nored has been naimed supreme commander and he is organizing his forces. “Totlec responded.
“Excellent. Another thing! I want a raid on space in voyager’s federation. I want a fairly soft target! I don’t want maximum casualties but I want a definitive message to them to stay out of our qudrent. ” Odala said. “Agreed!”the admiral said.

“We have breaking news! The federation news service has confirmed after seven years in the delta qudrent the u.s.s voyager has come home. The voyager is heading back to earth. “The reporter said.
“Celebrations are being planed. There will be perades all over the planet. There will be a formal caramony held by the president. Star fleet command is not commenting on how voyager returned yet .rumors are abounding on the com nets”
Voyager
Sence voyager made it back to the alpha qudrent all naomi’s mom could talk about was seeing her farther. Naomi had never met the man. She found it hard to be interested in meeting someone She had no connection with. She knew it was important to her mom. It had little significance to her.
The com channels were a bus of activity. Getting though to ds9 was difficult. She still tried.
The society sent a message to her. She did not get it consciously but she got it.  “Hi I got to go. I got co caught up in the excitement forgot to stop a critical experiment. “Sam said. “Mom are you coming to the ceremony?”she asked. “We Will see!”she ran out.
This is not like her morther. She had no idea what was going on. She found it strange. Mayby it was stress.
Sam went to the science lab. No one was there. She activated a society override protocols. The computer seized the computer. She located the pertinent data and had it uploaded to the society main frame.
She got a message saying that the data had been received. Then she disabled the link. She cleared out of the computer. She reverted back to the old Wildman. She had no idea why she was there.
She then went to one of the looks out on the ship. She saw her daughter. “I did not know if you were coming ?”Naomi asked. “I would not miss this for anything! ” she told her daughter. Naomi was surprised by that answer. “Ok! I am glad you could make it!”she said.
The voyager entered earth space. There were fire works. Everyone at space control clapped. The voyager headed towards space dock.

At one time,catlin was a rising star within the society. After a series of defeats he fell from grace. The bored of elders threw him into the nubula figuratively speaking. He had to be the one to take the blame. He was determined to bring himself back to glory. He wanted to bring the society to its fullest. He was certain he Stil could.
The general received the message from Wildman or operirive 4478. He had requested information on Borg transwarp conduet,delta qudrent empire’s,and map of key areas.
The data came on his screen. It was everything he had hoped for and more . this could be the key to everything. To restoration for himself. Revival of the zerabien empire and the complete ascendance of the society.
Planet caden four
Capital of the society
“The elders reviewed your plan. We were sceptical at first. With proper preparation it can work. We have decided to proceed with the plan.”the grand elder declared. The general was quite pleased.
“However we have decided that you with not command the operation!”the oversear ,the second in command said.
“I came up with this ship. I should command this operation!”catlin said. “Prior experience shows you are good at conception but not in execucution! Therefore another will lead. You will consult not you will not command!”the grand elder said.
“Who will command?” the General asked. “Admiral jitair!”the oversear said.”jetair? I have exceeded the admiral . I have proven myself far more effective then he. “Catlin said.”the desision has been made. It is final!” the grand elder declared. “Be glad we have not side lined you al together!”the oversear remarked.
He realized he should not fight this. He knew how far to go when it came to chelenging the bored of elders. “Very well. I am greatfull for this chance to serve! “The General said .
Later
He went to the office of jetrair. “Admiral! “Catlin said. “General . it has been a long time! ” the admiral said. “Indeed it has admiral!”catlin said. “So I have read the report from the elders. I would like to hear it in your words!”the admiral said.
“Of course. Right now reqonquest I of the zerabien empire is problematic. I recommend we build an empire in the delta quadrant. There is a planet in a fairly remote area. It is clas m but inhabited. There are several other class m words and world’s capable of capable of teraforming. It could be a capital world of a new zerabien empire. ” he said .
“There’s has to be a catch?”the admiral’s aid zeredek said. “There is commander. While it is uninhabited,it is claimed by a race called the voth !” catlin said.
“The voth are a reptile race. They were encountered by voyager. They profess to be the first race in the galaxy. In truth they originated on earth. They are believed to be dinosores. ” the General’s New aid major borin said.
“Can We take it without then noticing?” the admiral asked.”yes but we will need a distraction. I have an idea on how to accomplish that. ” catlin said. “How?”the admiral’s aid asked. “We need an aly. I have a perfect candidate. “The General said.

The planet was a demonic class planet or class l. They teraformed one island making that island class m. The island was sealed off from the rest of the planet.
“Sir! There is a ship in orbit. He is asking to speak to you by name! A vadwar officer asked. “How did He know how to find us?”Gaul asked .”I don’t know!”the officer said.
The leader agreed to meat with this man. “Who are you?”Gaul asked. “My name is General catlin. I represent a group called the beatufied. We have a proposal!”the general said .

Notes.
The voth appeared in the third season episode “distant origin”
Vaadwaur appeared in the sixth season episode”dragons teeth”
Samatha Wildman first appeared in the second season episode “elogim” and was s reacuring character seen throughout the series mostly during the second and third season. Sense she was a fairly miner character I thought she could be a sleeper agent.

“Colnel catlin welcome!” a tech maimed zerken said. “You wanted to see me techinician?” the colonel asked.
The tech took him into the command center. They went to an aft device. “The revilator? I believed that it was mythical? ” the colonel said. “It is not sir!”the tech said.
“Does it predict the future ?”he asked. “Not quite sir! It scans the time line and based on events and personalities of key players and races,it suggest possible predictions. It is not certain But is a good guide. “The tech said.
“I see!”it is quite fascinating. “The tech said. “It sounds it. What have you learned?”the colonel asked.
“The situation in the damilterized zone will continue to be destabilized. Attention will be played more to that reigion. There is something else. The revator believes that the starship voyager will play a key role in the future. “The tech said
“Voyager !never heard of it!”the colonel said. “It is Stil in shakedown but will oficialy  lunch soon. All indications are that they will play a major role in the future. “The tech said.
“I suspect you have a recommendation!”catlin said. “Yes I do sir. I believe we should have one of our operatives in star fleet be assigned to the voyager. We need eyes and ears on this ship. “The tech said.
The colonel considered what to do.”very well.  Have an officer assigned. I am considering an ensign perhaps in the science division. ” catlin said.
The tech entered in names of operatives actively in star fleet in to the revilator. On the screen the view screen showed a white light traveling though space. Then one image came on the screen.
“This one? ” the colonel said. The tech stoped the screen. On the view screen was the image of ensign Samantha Wildman. “I Will make the arrangements !” major kirel said.”good !” the colonel said.
U.s.s kieserge
Ensign Wildman was asleep in her quarters. The com monitor went off. She got up and turned on the monitor. On The view screen was a Vulcan admiral naimed sortok. “Admiral!”she said. “Ensign we need you to report to the u.s.s voyager. “The admiral said.
“Voyager? I had hoped to transfer to deep space 9! “She said. “I realize that but star fleet needs your ecpertise. I must ask you to comply with these transfer orders!”the Vulcan said.
While they were communicating,a subliminal message wastransmited to her subconsciously. She received the message but did now know She received it. It did work but she did not know that.
“Of course sir. I will comply!”ensign Wildman said. “Very good the voyager is at ds9 waiting to be deployed. The kieserge will go to ds9 to drop you off.”the admiral said “of course sir!”she reaplied.
There were two kinds of operatives inside star fleet who were working for the society. The first were operatives who knew that they were operatives. The orther were operatives who were basically sleeper agents. They were not aware that they were agents. They would provide valuable information. They could be activated at any time.
Wildman was a sleeper agent. The admiral Said goodby. The message ended. The monitor was deactivated.
Wildman had no idea. She would be shocked if she knew. She was a weapon against star fleet. She was hurting the fleet without ever knowing it.
She boarded the voyager. Both her and star fleet were none the wiser. She went on voyager. The voyager then left deep space 9. The voyager left the station.
The vessel disappeared in the bad lands. The ship was declared lost. The colonel then consulted the revilator. “How can this be zarcan you assured me the voyager would play a major role in the future? How do you explain this?”the colonel asked.
“First I did. Not say it the revilator did. I scanned the revilator again adding the New data. This is what came back. The voyager will Stil play a major role in galactic affairs. The ship was declared missing not destroyed. “The tech said.
“How can you explain this contradiction?”the colonel asked. “I can’t but I trust the revilator!” he said.
“Well for now I Will focus on out other avenues. Keep me apprised!”the colonel ordered. The tech said he would.
2374
The society had been very buisy. The society was quietly building. They were aquring ships weapons. They even negotiated with other worlds. They were not ready to go public but they were back. The zeravian empire was on the road to restoration.
Secret base
“General I have news from seribus!”Korea said. “What is it?”he asked. ” voyager was not destroyed. It was taken by an aliens  seventy thousand light years to the delta quadrant. It had spent the last four years there. “Kirel informed him.
“They are Stil there?”he asked. “They Will have to travel for seventy five years to make it home. They hope to find a quicker way home. They sent multiple data to star fleet. What they have we have. Thanks to our opritives. ” kirel said.
“I want to look it over ! I want to analyze every bit of it. This could be most helpfull. “The General said. “They are uploading it to us. “She said.
He studied it. He came up with a plan. Contact with voyager was lost again. A relay used to send messages was destroyed. He knew contact would be restored.
After the dominion war ,an attempt to restart the war failed. General catlin formed a New idea. A new plan. He believed this one would work.

“They are not! Then who is? “The president ‘s security advisor asked.”we believe a group that has  Bean involved in attacks for several years is trying to reignite the dominion war so they can prepare to invade the old zeravien empire.” admiral todman told them.
“You are sure of this?”the president asked. “There is question as who is involved but that this plot existed is not. There is a secret shipyard near the klasen syustom. It is not the dominion. “Admiral parris said.
“Alright! I want all available ships to head for the shipyards. I want that ship yard secured. ” the president said .
“You have got it Mr. President! “Admiral parris informed the president .”I want us taken off a war footing with the dominion. I do not a war on two fronts for no reason. ” the president declared.

“The enemy vessels are heading right for the shipyard. “Kirel informed the commander. ” order all ships loyal to the beatified to head for the shipyard! ” Caitlin said.”right away. ” she said.
The two fleets met up with the other. The defient got off the first schot. The rest of the fleet followed suit.
The battle had gone into full swing.the beatified fleet returned fire. The society fleet composed of  multiple ships. All from different races including ships left behind from the hushnuck.
The society had been building up there forces for quite a while. The buildup was quiet. It was a slow process.
Now they had been exposed. They stil might be able to gain the uper hand. The federation was working to over power the force.
“Captain I believe I have located a crack in the station’s shield.it is very smal. I believe we can exploit it!”nog announced.
“Go for it!”the commander ordered. The defent headed for the base. The scout class war ship headed at high warp for the base. The ship fired on the base. A few ships came at the defiant.
Two akira class starship covered the ship. The ship went side ways and fliped around and made it to the other side of the shields.
The defiant fired multiple volleys of quntrum torpedoes on the base. Part of the base was struck. The area was heavily damaged .
One of the hangers was obstructed by the defiant. Two akira class vessel exploited the flaw that the defiant had.
The two star fleet scout ships fired on the base. They hit several parts of the base. The rest of the fleet pounded on the enemy force.
The rest of the fleet built on what the defiant had done the shield came down. The fleet moved in.
Several of the hostle moved out. They attempted to move out. They wanted. To get away.
The dominion ship commanded by catlun tried to move out. The defiant was not about to slow that the defiant and three Klingon bird of preys surrounded the vessel.

“Log of Jake sisco,reporter for the federation news service. I have interviewed the crew of the starbase. I am now going to the surface to survey the damage. ”
Jake Beamed to the surface. Even before he fully emerged on the planet,he could see the carnage. There was plenty of evidence of the attacks.
Responders had already got to work treating the survivors. Jake had gotten used to being after battles.
Jake had gotten the detailed accounts of the battle. He now wanted General information on the colony.
“This planet was colonized by people from earth in the year 2103. The colony became a federation member in the year 2302. Non human began to settle other continents later on. A unified government was created in 2199. ” a planetary historian told Jake.
Jake was not interested in the history of the planet. He knew his editors would be. Then something caught his attention.
“This planet was a outpost for the zeravien empire .the zeraviens never established a colony but did place unmanned equimptment on the surface. It was part of there central trade route!” the historian told Jake.
Jake got to thinking,other then the base, there was nothing of significance to the dominion. This was not necessary to conquering the federation. It was if you wanted to reconqur the zerravian empire.

“Do you ever ralax?”shabby asked.”of course I do. This could be the story of the century. I don’t want to someone else to crack this before I do. “Jake told her. “You relay think that there is a story hear?”Fullerton asked. “Absolutely”he replied. “Oh ok!”she responded.
“Computer scan archives for anything about movement to revive zeravien empire! ” Jake asked.the computor. The screen went blue. “What happened?”Gabrialla asked.
Sudenly the screen sawed the image of star fleet security. Then the image switched to the face of admiral todman.
“Why were you accessing this information?”the admiral asked. “It is for a story admiral. I had no idea it was classified information. ” Jake told him. “It’s not. I just want to know who is trying to access it and why!”he said. 
“It’s going to coast you sir!”Jake said.””fine you can have an exclusive . “he said.”I suspect that someone is quietly planing to invade the old zerravian empire with the goal of reviving it. “Jake said.”you promise not to publish this until after the plot is thawted?”todman asked. “You have my word. “Jake said. “There has been increased activity in this sector for a few years now. It began with a theft of a Borg cube. Combined with other ships. There has been an escation. I did not believe this was connected. I am reevauating that. “The admiral said. “Who is behind all this?”Jake asked.”we are not totally sure. We suspect it may be the work of a secret society called the beatified. They have been a thorn in the side of the federation from the very beginning. ” the admiral said.
Jake was astonished by all this. This was a huge story. How could they stop this plot?
Camberin syistom .
The two ships headed into the heart of the General Camberin sector.
“Lets combine the two sensors and see if we can’t come up with something! “Reese ordered. “Implimenting now!”Justin said.
“So what is going on between you and serva?”he asked. “Neither one of us knows for certain yet.I think we both like each other. “Justin said. “I can see that. ” Reese said.
“I have something !”Justin said.”report!”the commander ordered. “I have located some kind of enomily in the surimon pulsar.it could be some kind of outpost it staging area!”tyme reported.”send to star fleet command and to Romulus. Then we are going in!”Reese said.
The two ships went to warp. The ship would not be able to hit the base. This would have to be a recon mission. It would be information gathering only.
The ships had to get close to the source of the readings to determine what it is. The pulsar was obstructing readings. That was probably why they put the base there.
“I got a visual!”Justin said. “What are you waiting for? A formal invitation?”Reese asked. The screen was turned on. On the screen was a massive base. There were ships from several races. Thus included hushnuck and others.
“Holy carp!”Reese said. “We have to warn star fleet!” tyme commented. “Agreed! We need to get out of hear. “He said. The ships headed out.
“You don’t think you and serva can make a go of it?” Reese asked. “I think so. I want to. “He said. “Your a human she is a romulan. Right now we are allies but you can’t really think the silence Will last. It is a marriage of convenience. The romulons and the federation will be In a situation where conflict nay become anavodible. “Reese said.”it does not have to be that way.”Justin said.
“Mayby our two people’s just are not ment to be allies. It won’t work Justin. I think you know I’m right on this. “He said. He did not want to believe that. He wanted to believe that it could work. He wanted to believe that love could work between these two. He wanted it to. He really liked her and hoped it would work.
Right now there were bigger issues.that fleet had to be stoped. There plot had to be exposed. This was there one chance. Right now he would be focused.

Wars and rumors of wars. Part five

Dominion vessel
Qurters of the general.
The vorta supervisor was the only person on a dominion ship that hit there own Qurters . they usually reserved Qurters just in case a founder was abored. Catlin kept the ship as it was. No changes well very few.
The door opened.Sence no one else In the crew dared to intrude without permission,he knew it could only be one person. Kirel.
Sure

enough it was.

“The incident with the Difient has blown Everything up. The federation is on high alert .there are rumors that the federation is considering striking the dominion in the gama quadrant. The plan is going well.”she said
“Why does this not feel

like a victory?   We accomplished the mission. We put things in motion. It did not go as planned . the Difient servived the attack. The admiral is stil alive.  I fear this portends badly for the future.”Catlinsaid.
“You worry too much . you always have. Nothing goes quite the way you plan it too. It was not a total victory. That happens. We can pull this off. We already are. “Kirel declared.
“I would believe it were it not for the incident with the Borg cube. All my life I have been a murcinary or fighting in other people’s armies. All my life I have yearned for a zeravuen empire. This is what I want for a legacy. I have no children.this is my chance. This is my gift to the galaxy. My gift to my people!”he said.
Kirel had not told him that she was pregnant with his child. “We can pull this off. We can create the universe you envision. We will. “She told her.
He hoped she was but he was not sure. He had become obsesed with recreating the zeravuen empire. She wanted to tell him her news but decided that this was not the time.
Gama qudrent
Founders home world.
The founders had moved there home world a few years earlier due to a plot by the romulon telshiar and Cardesien obsidian order to destroy it as a preemptive strike.
A vorta briefed the founders on current events including odo. “The federation believes that we are behind the attack?” odo asked.
“Yes they do.”the vorta said.”we were not involved of course. The federation May not believe them!”a founder said.
“You believe they will restart the war?”odo said. “They may! Another founder said. “We know a dominion fleet was involved. Where did it come from?”odo said.
“We are looking into it. The cardesuen and Breen has aces to our technology. Someone could have rebuilt the fleet using wrekege from battle sites. ” the vorta said.
“I want a patrol of the wormhole. “A founder said. “Of course founder!”the Vorta said.
Star base 381
Jake interviewed various people from the staf of the station to First responders. He went to the mess hall. He noticed life on the station was slowly getting back to normal. Everyone was stil on edge. They all feared another attack.
Jake got a plate of food. He saw Gabriella Fullerton. “May I join you ?”he asked.”sure! I hope what i say won’t show up in print?”she commented. “No I never print anything without expresed permission. “He said.
“Alright I just wanted to make sure.”she said. “Ok! That’s fine. How are you doing?”he asked. “Ok I know the dominion do not have the greatest reputation but I really thought the war was over,really over” she said.
“Thus could just be a miner set back.perhaps a rougue faction of the dominion. I was there on a planet near archanis after the martok changing was exposed. It looked like the war with the Klingon was on. Then it just stoped as if it never happened. “Jake said.
“You think this will blow over?”she asked. “I think  that there is a good chance of it. “Jake said.

Admiral Ross got the damage report. It was bad but could be a lot worse. It could be repaired fairly easily.
” I want to do the repairs that can be done hear. I want to keep the. Defient on the frontier. “Admiral Ross said.
“Keep the sansors up to full strength. I would like to find that fleet. The longer they operate In this sector,the more of a threat they pose. “Ross said.

Reese and tyme decided to follow up on a lead. They beamed to the surface. They went to a farm house. They saw animals.
A women held a baby in her arms. “Annie towels?”Reese said.”I have honored the condition of my perole! She said.
“Have you heard from Jack torence?” rese asked. “I have not seen him since my arest. I heard he was on desica two. There is rumors that he wants to revive the marquus but I want nothing to do it.a few weeks ago I was contacted by a friend of his named powers.he was on desica two. They want to replant colonies along the old d.m.z.” Annie said.
“Is he stil on desica two?” tyme asked.”that I don’t know . “he said.tyme and tease went over to a corner. “Feel like taking a trip to desica?”Reese asked. “Sounds like fun!” tyme said.
Desica two.
There was a bar on desica that was known as a center of activities for all kinds of activities. These included legitimate and otherwise. The two entered the bar.
He saw torence and powers. As they went over to the table. A sniper fired a phaser blast on the two. The sniper beamed away. They ran up to the area.
“Dawn it!”tyme said. “The case has just gone cold. “Reese said. “Incoming ship”the Hoover computer voice said. They beamed back to the scout ship.
They went back to the cock pit. Tyme looked at the sansors. “It is a romulon transport. “Tyme said. “Serva?”Reese said.
There was transporter beam. “Are we being captured?”tyme asked. “Teran humor!hey babe!”she said she hugged him.
“Did you come hear for a date ?”Reese asked.”if we can fit it in definitely! My superiors won’t listen to me. The attacks on the klasen system is not a coincidence .it is part of a coordinated effort. All of the attacks seam to be centered on an area once known as the camberin protectorate.it was part of the zeravian empire. I believe that the dominion has nothing to do with this. I believe that this is a plot to restore the empire. The dominion is a pawn in all this.” serva said.
“Wait a minute. Computor scan computer archives. Subject events in the camberin expance in the last forty years. “Reese asked.
It went though several entries. “Computor stop! I remember hearing about this one. A group stole a Borg cube . the real Borg showed up and dealt with them. “Reese said.
“How do We get more evidence?”Reese asked. “We need to go to the camberin sector. “Serva said. “Care to come with us?” “Reese asked. “Absolutly!” she said. The ship headed to the sector.

“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.

Karlita wore the Gray prison issue uniform.she was her work detail. She was told she had a visitor.
“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.
