” Lexington’s log commander dylen Baker reporting. We are waiting for the commadore to return. We are holding position near the devos nebula. We have not heard anything from the shartle or the commadore.
“The quizmaster is increasing his attacks. The u.s.s Richmond was destroyed. Talon schooters. “Logen reported. ” we can’t stay hear forever.” Donaldson said.”,we will stay hear for another hour . If we don’t hear form hear after that we will head back . ” Baker said. The bridge crew said. “We have incoming. Sir it’s the shartle.”Donaldson said.
The shartle came in. The Lexington tracturd the shartle into the hanger bay. The bay opened. The craft was brought in. The tractor beam was disengaged once it entered the bay. Commadore Wesley landed it on its own power. The shartle landed in its designated birth. The vessel landed.
The commadore excited the craft. He was greated by his first officer. “I was beginning to worry.”Baker said.”what dylen you don’t want a promotion?”Wesley asked.,”all that paper work? No thanks.”Baker said.”I can’t blame you there .”,Wesley said.”the situation I’m the x zone is getting worse. Ships loyal to the quizmaster are unleashing the talon schooters on our ships. The royal sovereign and Richmond have been destroyed. “Baker said.”crap! “Wesley said.
“Did you get any thing on rissa?”Baker asked. “I did. It seems that the quizmaster is doing the bidding of a defrocked senator named rozek.the quizmaster is following a program that was rejected by the Senate. The plan is a multi faceted plan designed to destabilise the federation. The plan includes raids and biological weapons. The plan was seen as too costly.tbepreayor prefered a more military style solution. It seams that the quizmaster is acting on his own without the romulan government.”the commadore said.
“I can assume that the bio attacks are coming soon!”Baker said.”that is my thought as well . We don’t have a lot of time.”Wesley said.”if this playbook is from a romulan plan,what is the quizmaster’s end game?”Baker asked.”I don’t know. He does not strike me as an Alexander the great type. Maybe he is. He was a pirate a drug dealer a thug. Now I don’t know. I am not sure he knows. “Wesley said.” Is rozek still pulling his strings?”Baker asked.”that I don’t know. Rozek was exiled form the empire. If he is still in the picture of even still alive is not known. Unfortunately there are a lot of unknown in all this. Too many for my taste but that is how it goes. “Wesley said.
“Set course for the x zone. “Commadore Wesley ordered. “Course plotted .”nevaigator tonner said. The Lexington went to warp. The ship was off.
Spock looked over the data from the probe. Spock was highly skilled and open to inginuity. Spock looked over the data. The gateway was a vast tunnel like network. “Keptin,I am detecting the presence of mines in federation space. The mines are old style Romulin but they have been refitted with talons. “Ensign checov said.”are you sure ?”beach asked.”are you questioning me sir?”checov asked. “No of course not ! ” Beach said.
“They are planing to quietly divide the federation. A kind of divide and conquer strategy or even a divide and destroy perhaps.”Harold said. ” It would appear so.”spock said. “We are facing an imminent invasion?” Beach asked. “Perhaps not an invasion but certainly an imminent attack. ” Spock said.
“What do we do ?”Harold asked. “Send to Star fleet command priority one. Use general order 00. ” Spock ordered. The com officer acknowledgd the order. “Are you sure this warrants the zero zero designation?”beach said.”I believe it does. ” Spock said.
“Sir,detecting incoming message,the Lexington is coming in . They have Informstion.the commadore is calling an urgent meeting.”the com officer said.”understood!”blare said.
“Our mission is clear. The federation is in jeopardy. The quizmaster’s is planing a gurilla war and bio attacks. The gurilla war is In full force.i suspect that the bio attack is coming. “Wesley said. “What do we do now ?” Blare asked. ” I want to organize a total blockade of this area. I want patrol of the area. Star fleet is ending more ships to the reigion.our goal is to stop this plot.i suspect that this is the beginning of a plot to cause the overthrow of the federation. If this succeeds it will only get worse. That is why we have to be on the top of our game. “Welsh said.
The door opens ,an aid went over to the admiral. He wisperd to him.they went back and forth. Then the aid left. The commadore returned to the table.”the USS Columbus discovered the gateway technology used by the quizmaster. They discovered secret mines. Star fleet command has envoked code 00. We are now in a sate of emergency. “Wesley said.
“If they are working on the device part ,they must be near ready to work on the conquer part.”blare said.”that is my thought as well.we have to assume that the bio weapons are in play.” Wesley said.”what will they use to transport the contagion?” One of the captian asked.” Tankers cargo ships. It is probably hidden in real cargo. ” Blare commented. ” We will search all non Star fleet ships we come across. No exceptions.” Wesley ordered.
After a while the commadore ended the meeting.those in attendance got up form the confrence table. This was a highly unusual situation. While the odds of the quizmaster’s plan working were not good. The odds of a virus getting out were not that good. Any attack could be demoralizing.any empire opposed to the federation could and probably would take advantage of the situation. This was a precarious situation.
The area nicknamed the x zone was sealed off. It was heavily paroled by Star fleet. Other ships potroled the area. The reigon became an armed camp. Searches of ships began in droves. While so far nothing was found out of the ordinary.it spread fear. That was what the quizmaster wanted. It was working.
” The federation has fully mobilized in the area. The fleet has sealed it off.they are on full alert. “The henchman reported.”good! Then we can proceed with the next phase of the plan. Today the universe changes. Today we begin again! We spread chaos. We destroy so that can once again create. We will create in our image. We will do it now!” The quizmaster said.
The freighter Montana was a freighter that transported suplies to new colonies. The vessel had operated for 25 years. In the transport business,the Montana was legindary. A month before the first attack, the Montana was captured by alies of the quizmaster. The crew was replaced. The freighter took on real cargo. They made deliveries. No one suspected anything was off. The quizmaster used romulan surgical alterations techniques. They were a kind of sleeper cell. The ship was waiting .
The ship got clearance to proceed. The freighter headed to the planet Alton four. The planet was heavily populated.the toxin was a metagenic weapon. The virus would kill all the population of a planet. The attack would be devisating. The freighter was off.
“The fleet has begun to search ships in the vicinity of the zone. “Lucy said. “The ships has not found anything yet.”Donaldson said. “I am sure a bio weapon is out there. ” Wesley said. All of a suden a combat ship came out of no where. The vessel opened fire on the Lexington. The Lexington returned fire. The combat ship returned fire. It was commander by the quizmaster himself. The battle was on.
End of part six.
To be concluded.
