The quizmaster part six 

U.s.s Lexington

Bridge 

 ” 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. 

Bridge 

“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. 

U.s.s Lexington

Conference room 

“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.

The quizmaster part five 

U.s.s Columbus 

Bridge.

The Columbus was a scientific research vessel. The misson of the Columbus was to investigate am alien conduet technology. A gateway.this conduet was discovered before the quizmaster began his reign of terror. Now that it as learned that the quizmaster was using this gateway,it was a bigger priority. 

“Are you certain that the network is the same as the one used by pirate known as the quizmaster?”spock who was temporarily in command of the Columbus asked.”yes sir I am.it is the same design .The component are very similar.”science officer beach reported.”I agree.”of arex reported.

“I suspect that the conduet network was left behind by an ancient race.perhaps a trade route of some kind.”spock commented.”it stands to reason that the aliens who built the network are gone. This could be a legacy of a forgotten race.” Beach remarked. 

“How did the quizmaster learn about this? “Lt. Herold asked.”the legends are well-known on alien world’s. It is similar to by an mythology.” Arex said.” Many myths have roots in reality. They are usually just fanciful exaduations. “Spock said.

“If the network is interconnected,could it lead us to the quizmaster?” Harold asked.” I believe it could lautanent. I suggest we get on it.” Spock said.the crew agreed. They got right to work. 

Rissa

Commadore Robert Wesley had subdued the bolien who tried to kill him.he got access to a device that could lead a clue into all this. He ran as fast as he could. He worked hard to get to the shartle.although he was in his early fifties,he was still fit. He worked hard to stay in shape. Although his wife enjoyed teasing him,he succeeded. 

He preferred not to land the shartle so far away,he feared that the forces loyal to the quizmaster might capture it or destroy it. He did not want to to be stranded hear. Right now as the long as the craft was in fact.he had a fighting chance.that was all that mattered. 

The planet Risa was non aligned world.to aliens it was known as an intergalactic resort planet.A pree federation starship Enterprise visited the planet during there first year in deep space. The federation had some diplomatic contact with rissa.some believed rises would one day become a federation member . The planet was frequented by people of less then repute including the Orion syndicate. There is some conservative elements inside the federation that had objection to the planet on moral grounds. for now it was an independent world. To Wesley it was a dangerous one. 

Wesley kept on running. He hoped to get to the shartle soon. He needed to get that device to the Lexington. The sooner it could be analyzed perhaps the sooner they could work to stop the quizmaster. 

He came upon a group of aliens. He tried to act natural.were they simply guest or were they alies of the quizmaster?  The commadore tried to keep moving. They saw what he was up to. They walked closer to him.”going somewhere?”the lead alien said.”actually I am. Last I checked this is a free planet?”the commadore remarked. ” I have always believed that might makes right!”the alien said. “You believe you have the might?,”the commadore remarked.”everything I see Indicates that I do. ” The lead alien asked. 

Wesley hit the lead alien. He pushed the alien into the crowd. He ran on. They fired on him. He fired back. He wished that the shartle has its own transporter but it did not. He ran as fast as he could. His survival instinct kicked in. He kept on going. 

He fired his phaser. He stunned one of the aliens. He stunned another one.he kept on fireing. He had to dodge a series of fire. Wesley suspected that these were just petty thugs.he was pretty sure that they were just being a pain and were not aligned with the quizmaster. He stunned another and another. It just left the lead.

He power drive the lead thug. The two wrestled . Wesley knocked him out. Then he stunned him.he took there weapons.he tied them up. Then he moved on and continued to walk to the craft. He knew that this was only going to get harder from hear. The quizmaster was going to get more desperate and more determined. Wesley decided to be more refined and more determined. He was going to be strong.he was going to outwit and outlast the quizmaster and his ilk. 

Wesley may be older but he was not going to be outdone by the likes of the quizmaster. Not now not ever.he was an old dog but the old tricks still worked.he was not going anywhere. The quizmaster would be stopped. The commadore would make sure of that. 

Quizmaster ‘s ship

“Is the commadore in custody?”the quizmaster asked.”not yet!” The lead henchman said.”make sure it happened. The commadore must be taken out of the way. His continued presence threatens my entire plans. I want him eliminated figurtivley or literally.i do not care witch!”the quizmaster said. “I will communicate that to our people sir.” Durona said.”good!See that you do!” The quizmaster said. 

The quizmaster found himself viewing weary of this human captain named Wesley. He  believed that the crippling of the federation was essential for his plan to work. Without the collapse of the federation the plan would fail.despite the objection,he went after the federation. Then with the federation out of the way he could further into his plan for the future. He believed all he had to do was endure this phase. Then he could do what he really wanted to do. He would. 

The crew knew that he was annoyed. They knew that they would be on a short leash until Wesley was defeated. They got to work. They were nervous. The quizmaster was iretible. He was prone to mood swings. He was usualy unstable any ways but especially now. He was really unpredictable now. They knew to get results and fast. Before he became really upset.no one wanted that.

“Sir! U.ss royal sovereign was destroyed.it was ambushed. They were taken out by talons. Captian Saunders and the crew got to escape pods.casulties were light. ” The com officer reported.”dawn it. They are getting more and more bold” captian blare said.”they think they are wining!”the first officer said.” I know they do but they are not.  I assure you.”the captian said.”you think Wesley is OK?”the first officer asked.”Bob can think on his feet.in will take more then this quizmaster to bring hi down.”blare said.

Bob wesly neared the shartle. He saw a group of Orion’s.they were not hear the shartle. They were close enough.he suspected that they were not involved in the plot. On this planet those who were not for you were proagainst you one way or another. He had to get pass them. One way or another he would . 

Wesley quiet ly walked towards the shartle. He knew how to walk in a clendestine manner.he knew how to be stealtfully. He had his phaser ready. He was preparing to go to the shartle. He hoped he could make it there and fast. He ran to the craft.

He ran into the craft.he ran to the pilots chair. The craft lifted off. One of the thugs loyal to the quizmaster took out a service to space mistle lucher.it fired a projectile in the direction of the shartle. Wesley veered away. The craft just missed the mistle.the mistake exploded. The craft did take some of the debate but came though it largely unscafed. The shartle made it to open space. He knew it was. It over. Not by a long schot. He was still in the game. That was something. Wesley believd he would make it the rest of the way. 

The startle headed for the lexingron.it would take a whilethe startle did not have warp.wesley went at maximum impulse.

Terna,the delten was abored his ship. He looked out in to the stars. Terna had been put in charge of the operation. Terna was suposed to make the operation work. If it suceded,he would receve some praise. If it failed,he would get all the blame. He knew that well.
Terna had got kereth to set all this up. Terna presented himself as an arms dealer. He was careful not to implicate the society.  If he was exposed,he would take the blame for it. The society must endure.
Archer got too close. Terna had killed kereth killed. He hoped to be off planet before he could be aprehended by archer. Archer had no jurisdiction hear but terna would take no chances.
“The enterprise left orbit. It is on an intercept course . It is heading straght for us. ” The tactical officer told him.
“How did they figure this out? We killed kereth before they arived. Besides he knew nothing !” An eloriam named rizza said. “I don’t know. Feign ignorence. No agresive moves!” Terna said.”we should have screens up!” Dezrek the tactical officer a gazerite said. “We do. We will arouse suspisions. We cannot risk exposing our organization!”terna said.
“Suspose they already know?”reza said. “They will be destroyed!”terna said. “What if archer told his superiors?”reza asked. “One thing at a time!”terna said.

While the rygelian have also suspended all activities as well. The alience seams to be falling apart. While coilition president thomas Vanderbilt is trying to show a brave front!” Reporter gannet brocks said.
“We are hopeful that these isues can be resolved in a timley fashion. “The president said.
“It is unclear if the vote witch was mostly cerimonial will take place. There is a  question wrether the coilition could occur only with humanity,Vulcan and andorians. Coilition oficials are debating contingency plans just in case.” The reporter said.

“We are evacuating non esential personele from the planet!” Ambassador gral told the captain. “I thought that we were one big happy fleet now?” The captain said. “There have been complications!” Gral told the.starship captain.
“This alience seamed to be almost a reality!”the captain said.”it was but it seams to be crumbling apart. “Gral said. “I see. Is the coulition In jepordy of faling apart?” The captain asked. “I am not certain !” Grall said.
“We have incoming! It is an earth fighter squadron !”the tactical officer reported. “They claim that they are hear to escort us to another birth. Apearently this area is unsicure'” the com tech said.
“This is very iregular!”the first officer said. “It is indeed! Get me admiral gardner!” Grall said.”no response. We are being jammed!” The com tech said.
The fighter started to seround the telerite vessel. “This does seam friendly!” The first officer said.”No it does not!” Grall said.
One of the fighters slammed into the telerite vessel. There was a smal explosion near the reactor.
“Earth space or no. This is an act of war. Open fire!” Grall ordered. The telerite ship picked off the fighters one by now. 
Outside borderlands.
“We are right outside the borderlands!” T’pol said. “Bryce stand by all weapons! ” archer said.”weapons on stand by!” Shumar reported. “Travis take us in!”archer ordered.
“You do know how to fire phased canons?”trip asked. “Yes i do!” Bryce answered.
“We are now inside the borderlands! “Travia reported.”i have located arand sar’s ship!”t’pol said. “Send it to the helm! Once you have it set course!” Archer ordered.
The vesel run by arand sar was not far from where the entrence to the borderlands. The enterprise made it in record time.
“Stand by!”archer said. “I’m ready !”bryce said. “Now in weapons range!” T’pol reported.”now!”archer ordered. The enterprise fired miltiple voleys of photonic torpedoes at the orion ship.
“We are being hailed!”hoshi said.”i thought that might get there attention ! On screen !”archer ordered.
On the screen displayed the image of a surely orion male.”what is this?” Arand said. “Our last encounter was not promising towards future contact. “Archer said.
“I hear your starting some kind of alience. Your stil a war criminal as far as the syindicate is concerned. It is stil dangerous for you to be hear. “Arand said.
“You trying to stir up trouble for the new coilition?”archer asked.
“Why do i care about your alience? “Arand asked. “Your friend kereth is designing augmentation for a faction of humanity oposed to the alience. “Arand said.
“Kereth. He and i parted ways mounths ago. He is no good. “Arand said. “You know where he is?”archer asked. “I heard he was on rissa. He is persona non grata with the syindicate. “Arand said.
