Spock was brought to the bridge. Spock recognized some of the crewmembers.many he had grown up with. He was surprised they had agreed to join this movement. He suspected that they had gotten over there heads. They did not sign up for this.
Spock entered the bridge. He was shocked to see sybok. Spock knew sybok well. They had grown up together. Like spock,sybok too is a son of sarek.
Sybok was theveon of a vulcan noble women. She died when he was young. Sarek and later amanda raised him. He was seen as a future figure in vulcan sosiety. He had extreme views. He was exiled never to return.
“Qol satu sybok.”spock said. “After all these years you have finaly caught up with me. “Sybok said. “Why have you done this? Surely we can solve the differences between us with out violence. Things are changing within vulcan sosiety. The old rigid syistom is a thing of the past. These acts of force are not needed. “Spock said.
“Sybok is not in charge hear mr. Spock. I am. Any inquries regarding the true vulcan government should be directed to me. ” zarkan said.
“Of course. I ment no disrespect. Who sir are you?”spock asked.”i am zarkan.sovereign of vulcan people. “Zarkan said.
“What are your intentions? “Spock asked. “Logic has failed. Non emotion has failed. Surek has failed. The universe is governed by force. Human philosopher neztche called it a will to power. On earth Darwin called it servival of the fittest.only the stribg survive. Vulcans unser surek became weak complacent. Only those with overwelming fire power can be truely free. “Zarkan said.
“Violence is hardly necesary hear. Your goals could be acheved without force. Why reject surek and embrace hate,violence ,war?”spock asked. Spirituality can only be acheved though survival.
“I dont hate violence. I dont fear it.i dont see it as bad. I dont equate violence with evil. Vuolence is an ally. “Zarcan said.
“Violence is powerful but it is unpredictable. It has bo lotalty. It acts only acording to its own agenda. “Spock said.
“Our people needed change. We were on a destructive path. My regime had become decident. I needed to be overthown.that has changed now. I am needed again. Surek served his genetation. It is time for a new comitment. A change. “Zarkan .
“I am not interested in the kind of change your offering. “Spock said. “Spock. You must know the toal logic takes on someone. It too much of a burden. “Zarkan said.
“I suspect the road you offer is just as burdomsome. I suspect more so. “Spock said. “I will give you time to consider it. Put him in the brig. “Zarkan said.
“Our fleet is bigger then theres. “Steve observed. “If they use there bag of tricks. It could even the scales a bit. If they use the bio weapons it is a whole new ball game.”warren said.
“You think they will?”oneil asked. “I am not sure. I suspect they might. “Warren said.
“Fleet command is ordering us to intercept. “Palmer said. “Acknowledged. Hear we go!”warren said.
The fleet headed for the proto vulcan fleet. The vulcan fleet headed for the federation fleet. It would soon begin.
Rougue vulcan ship
Spock meditated on his bunk. The door opened. It was sybok. “Spock i need your help!”sybok said. “From my vantege point you brought this on yourself. You must know the kind of man zarkan is. As the humans say,if you play with fire your going to get burn. To bring zarkan to power was a bad idea.”spock said.
“You always had to have the last word spock. Always had to one up me. You can just leave it alone. “Sybok said.
“I may have gone overbored. This time the consequences may be far greater then you can posibly imagine. “Spock said.
“Zarkan is going to destoy anyone that gets in his way. I know who i can count on amoung the crew. We may be able to stop him. We have to move quickly. Please spock help me. If not for my shake,for all our people. ” sybok pleeded.
“Very well. You have my suport. ” spock said. “Thank you.”sybok said he lowered the force field. “We have to move quickly. We dont have a lot of time. “Sybok said.spock agreed.
The two ran from the cell. Several joined them. They had to move quickly. Zarkan would not hesitate to put down there little rebelion.they have to stop zarkan from getting any where close to new vulcan.
“Warren can you come over hear for a minute?”lt. Palmer asked.warren got uo from the command chair and went over to the com station.
“Star fleet security ity and intelligence is concerned about commander burgelle. “Palmer said.
“Why?”he asked. “She has been known to associate with individuals now identified as key members of the regresives. She met witg sybok on several occasions.they both lived at rygal 11 and visited eachother frequently. He made several visits to his home. She has made visits to planet frequented by smuglers. Star fleet suspect that she may still be stil a regresive. Star fleet wants her relieved of duty. They want her questioned. “Palmer said.
“I will handle it. Chief norton.”warren said. “Sir?”chief brenna norton said. He motioned to her to keep a distance.
“Sarah can i talk to you for a minute?” the captain asked. She came over. She noticed that he was not himself. Even during all this,he saw evidence of him being a playfull. It was a smal digree but it was still there.
“Whats going on warren?” she asked. “I know you were a member of the regresives. It hae been sugested you may have been on there steering commite. ” he said.
“I cant get pass my past can i? After the destruction of vulcan i was confused. The regresives started off as a book club.later on it became a political party. Sybok then became a kind of ghandi. As the group became bigger, hardliners came in. Sybok got frustrated by the government of new vulcan. He started surrounding himself with more militent members of his team. I left. “She said.
“Who is Zarkan? ” warren asked. “At first sybok looked to philosophers who were before surek who advocated reform without logic. Zarkan became a syimbol of the movement. He was a ralying cry for the movement. ” she said.
“Is it posible that Zarkan could have been in suspended anination?”warren asked. “That was one of the rumors?” she said. “Will they resort to using weapons of planetary destruction?”warren asked. “Before i would have said no. Now i am fearfull they might. I fear that sybok may just be a figure head now. That concerns me. “She said.
“Sarah i need you to stay in your qurters for now. “Warren said. “I understand. I will fuly coperate. ” she said. She folowed the secuity officer into the lift. The door closed.
“Why did she not trust me?”steve asked. “Warren your angery with her. You still love her. Keep that in mind. Eventualy you wont be angery any more. Your love will endures. You two will get though this. “Steve assured him.
“How do we get though this?” waren asked. ” i am maried to a cardesien.she is impulsive. She is arogent at times. Prone to moodiness. Both of us have pulled our hair out. We love each orther. You know in your heart she is not a terrorist. She is not a sleeper agent. You know that. “steve said.
“Don’t lose sight of what you know.dont go on other people’s assumptions. Dont read stories by those who really dont know. Go with what you know. ” steve said.
The two fleets were near eachother. “The enemy fleet is not advancing. “Ilisia reported. “Why are they standing pat? “Steve asked.
“We are being hailed. “Palmer said. “On screen! “Warren said. “This is Zarkan, sovereign of the vulcan people. New vulcan is the home world of vulcans. I am declaring new vulcan to be an independent sate. I request that the federation withdraw from all space recognized as belonging to vulcan. “Zarkan said.
“The federation has a process for departure from the union. If the requirements are met,we will withdraw. We cannot just unilateraly withdraw without a plan and process. “Warren said.
“New vulcan is for by and off vulcans captain. If we want to be independent. We have that right.we do not wish to be caught up in foregn entaglements. I must incist you vacate our sovetegn territory now!” zarkan said.
“We cannot do that . “warren said. “I will give you one more chance. Leave now!”zarkan said.”i cannot comply. “He said.
The screen faided.”the regresive fleet is advancing. ” steve anounced. “Hold our ground people! “Warren said.
The ships created a blokade. The ships created a wall around new vulcan. The proto vulcan fleet ran for the blokade.
An unmanned and empty ore freighter made a run for one of the ships. The frieghter tried to ram into u.s.s constantinople . the frieghter exploded and hit the ship.the vessel was damaged but still intact.
The vulcan ships tried to punch though the blokade. Several other unmanned ships rammed into blockading ships.
“They are getting passed the blokade. “Steve anounced. “Dawn! Break formation. Fall back.we will atempt to recreate the blokade. It seams they are playing dirty. ” the captain said.
The ships loyal to zarkan did everything they could to stop the formation of a new blokade. The ships pounded the federation ships.
Zarkan looked at the frontier. The captain started to have a savere headache. He was in heavy pain. Steve went over to the command chair.
Steve helped his friend. Steve ordered the fleet to hit the ships loyal to zarkan.
All of a suden,the power went blank. “Whats going on?”zarkan demanded to know. “Saboterge! Someone is attempting to overide bridge functions. “A bridge officer said. “Sybok!” Zarkan said.
Zarkan was unhappy. “What do we do now?” an aid asked. “We go to plan b. One sybok has no knowledge of. ” zarkan said. Zarkan beemed away from the bridge.
Spock ,sybok and his alies had been able to take key parts of the ship. An alarm claxon went off. Zon looked at a terminal. “They have activated auto destruct. ” xon said.
“We have to get to the life podes. “Spock suggested. The people moved out.
“The flagship is riged to blow.”Steve reported. “Have all ships beam out as manny as you can.” warren ordered.
Zarkan beemed on to another ship. “Orders sir?”zordole asked. “Head for new vulcan. If i cant have new vulcan. No one can.prepare the bio weapon. “Zarkan ordered.
The ship moved out.
To be concluded.
The federation fleet sucessfully stoped the attack by the warlord Zarkan. Zarkan plots to have one more act of spite by destroying new vulcan.
