Secret klingon weapons research post.
Near klingon- romulan border.
Khas was the commander of the facility. The facility was tasked with creating various new weapons for the empire. Khas was an expert at proxy wars. He led advisory teams to various planets ususly involved in cival wars. It was with the aim of advancing the interest of the empire.
Now he was supervising the construction of the new weapons.this time it was to be used directly by the empire in battle. He perfered this task to his previous one.
He liked desinging new technology for the perpose of war fare. He was glad to have this task.
“Sir! I present the dust cloud. ” dr. Kuruga said.a smal device was lunched. The device emited a kind of dust that spread though the station.
“All view screens and port holes are are blocked. Not only is the screen blocked but the dust created by the device blocks sansors including targeting sansors. It will eventually dispitate but it will do alot of damage before that. ” dr. Keraga said.
“Does it weakon the strucual integrety of the object hit?” the first officer said. “This device does not but we have created a version that does. “Dr. Keraga said.
“This is quite impressive. Not quite my thing but i am impressed. “Khas said. “You will reccomend that the ticumba aprove its use?”kuraga asked.
“There wont be time for that!” the first officer said. Everyone was confused. The exo detonated an explosive device embedded in his arm. Khas pushed keraga out if the way. The blast spread.
The lead flagship
“The station is clear of the debree.”t’pring reported. “Are there shields down?” zarcan asked. “Afirmitive. ” tpring answered. “Move us in to tranaporter range. “Zarcan ordered. “We are in place sir”zordom answered. “Send over the bording party. ” he ordered. “Sending now. ” sybok said.
A transporter beam emerged. The landing party all armed with phaser or disruptor rifles quickly moved out.
The team used a kind of canister that administers a non lethal gass.the canister scans for targets.it wont release the gass until it detects a combatent.
A team of klingon marines headed for the bording party. The mobile canisters ran for the marines. The klingon fired on the canisters. It did not accomplish anything. The canisters exploded. The klingon were all knocked out.
Ston ordered the team to keep advancing. They ran and ran. A nearby klingon marine fired his disruptor. Ston fired. He conrinued to fire. The marine fell to the ground. The team did not stop. They kept moving.
The team neared the weapons locker. A vulcan female named sorel tried to get inside the locker. She was an expert at technology and breaching though secuity system. Klingons loved to feel sicure. They believed they were invincible. They knew they were not so they overcompensated by being beyond parinoid. Sudenly the door opened.
The team rushed in. There weapons were at the ready. One of Zarcan’s folowers, a female named zera tried to get into a vault.
“Morw sucurity codes?” zera said. Sorel took control of the situation.sorel quickly ganed acess to the lockers. They raided every weapon they could get there hands on.
Zorak went over to a vault with the klingon lable for bio toxens. “No! We fight fairly.we do not use bio ,chemical or weapons of mass destruction. We fight within rules if war. “Stone said.”there are no rules in war. There is one rule. You must win ” zorak said.
Ston tried to stop him from entering the bio weapon vault. “No! I did not agree to using dirty weapons. Conventional warfare. Both sybok and i are clear on that. “Ston said.
“I do not recoznize your authority over me. I answer to sovereign Zarcan and he alone. ” zorak declared. He opened the vault and took the bio weapons.
“Excellently! We have most of the weapons .the klingon fleet will be hear soon. We have to get out of hear. “Sybok said. “I want every last weaoon this ship has. From a supernova generator to a kitchen fork i want them. The only key to victory is overwhelming force. ” Zarcan said.
“We have it. If we never leave klingon space, this revolution of yours will never happen.” sybok said.”revolution no. This is restoration.surek was wrong. Logic is not the answer. The universe is chaos. It is wild uncontroled untamed. We must conquer the universe. We must outsmart the universe. To do it we must be unpredictable and more chaotic. ” Zarcan said.
“The weapons are loaded. The team has returned. ” t’pring reported. “Good. Xon set the coordinants.do not engage until i give the order. “Zarcan ordered. “Understood. ” the pilot acknowledged.
“Zordol,target that base. Eliminate them. “Zarcan ordered. “This is not necessary. They have been cripled!” sybok said. “My authority will not be questoned.sybok do not forget who i am. Zordol!” Zarcan ordered.
The weapons officer fired on the station.the reactor took several indirect hits. The impact was close enough to cause a cascade of explosions. Several aditional hits caused the station to explode.
Before this all occured, khas anticipated that this might be the plan. He and keraga got into e.v.a suits. They got off the ships. They used the rokets packs. They made it out. The shick wave and use of the rocket packs render the rockets useless. They were traped until the fleet arived or there oxygen ran out.
“We are clear. ” xon reported. ” engage course pilot.”zarcan ordered.the pilot agreed. The ship headed out.
“Sybok! You recognize that i am emperor of the new vulcan order?”zarcan asked. “Of course. You are zarcan the great. “Sybok said. “A king cannot be questoned. Humana refer it to a devine right of kings. I am the soveregn leader of all vulcans? Am i not?” he asked.”yes yes! Without a doubt. You are the undisputed ruller of all vulcans! ” sybok said. “My orders will not be questoned. I owe you a great debt of gratutude. You found me revived me. Gave me ships folowers a plan. I am greatfull. Your past help only gives you so much leaway. You have much privledges.do not think i will tolerate discent ! I do not. There will only be one supreme leader of vulcans. ” Zarcan said.” undrstood!” sybok said.
“Welcome back to new vulcan ambassador sarek!” sovel said. “Thank you. It is agreeable to be back on our new home world. ” sarek said. ” how are things on earth?” sovel asked. “Things are quiet. Sense section 31 was disolved.humanity seams back on the tract embarked on by such men as zefren cocren,lyman eler,Jeremy greyson,Jonathan archer ,nathen samuals, thomas vandrtbelt and others. ” sarek said.
“How are the cambera korolas doing?” soval asked. “They were eliminated from the playofs i am afriad.” sarek said. “There is always next year i supose.” sovel said. “Indeed.” sarek said.
“I wish that ambassador spock was stil among us.” sovel said. “I agree. I do feel his absence. I got the impresson that he the sarek of his time line never achieved peace between them. I regret that. I may never underatand spock i can see his unique contribution to the galaxy and to vulcan race. It is a bit disconcerting that my counterpart did not come to that realization.” sarek said. “Perhaps he did. It is regrettable that ambassador Spock was unaware of it if it did occur. ” sovel said.
“Sybok i do not understand him.i asked the older Spock about the sybok of his time. He was reluctant to discus it. I get the impreson that They came to an understanding but at a high price. ” sarek said.
Captain burgele entered. “Captain on the bridge. ” an officer said.”as you were. “Warren said. The bridge crew went back to what they had been doing.
“Captain i have an incoming mesege from admiral robert april it is pre recorded. ” com officer Audrey palmer reported. “On maibe viwer Audrey. ” warren ordered.the com tech transfered the mesege.on the screen the stars and blackness of space was replaced by the image of the star fleet at his office at sanfrancisco.
“Monitor post near the klingon border have uncovered an incident at what star fleet intelligence believes in a weapons reserch station. The station was raided and destoyed. The Klingons deny such an incident ever took place. They have always denied the reserch station as well. It is a badly kept secreet. This is not the first raid that has occured in the last few weeks.
