How to date a Vulcan. 

Humans met a an alien in 2061. It was the vulcans. The vulcans were aliens in every sense of the word.  They could not be any different from us. They are capable of emotions but do not practice it. They have to discipline themselves to not exersize it. 

Vulcan and humans had a rocky word at first. Vulcans looked down on us humans. We saw them as intergalactic prudes. At first vulcans wanted to limit human activity into deep space. The vulcans tried to slow down. Men’s TREK into space. Finally after almost twenty years,mankind went into space. 

Despite the differences,man kind and vulcans did cooperate. They both became key members of the united federation of planets. The strange bound between the two races grew.

While human Vulcan relationship seemed unlikely and even problematic, they did happen. The most famous was the marriage of Vulcan ambassador sarek and his wife Amanda greyson. There is also the mariege of Dr. T’pan head of the Vulcan science acedemy who is married to doctor Raymond Christopher. 

Wouldn’t such a union be illogical. Why would a logical! Vulcan want to be united to a emonal irrational whimsical Vulcan? Is it true that opposites attrat? Why do these relationships develop?  

Why am I?Max Dean, A Star fleet officer be interested in dating and then marying a Vulcan? Well I will get to that. First lets discus how to meet a Vulcan. 

How to meet a Vulcan

Standard pick up lines don’t work. Not that they work well with humans. They don’t work as well with vulcans. Vulcans usually get anoyed. It usually has the opposite effect. 

Cadet max deen was walking around the campus. He liked the acedemy grounds. He took it all in. He was walking around. He was carefully not to disturb bothbys plants. He saw a young lady. She had long black hair. She was not waring a Star fleet cadet unifrom.she wore a black dress. He figure that she was either off dirty or a civilian.he found her quite attractive. 

He went over to her. “Come to this planet often?”he asked she turned around. Her hair covered her ears but she was clearly a Vulcan. ” I grew up on Vulcan but I have been. To earth quite frequently. Currently I am a cadet so yes I do come hear often. “She said. “I see! Well excuse me!”he said.

He started to walk off. She stoped him. He as really embarrised.It was an assasinine thing to say to anyone but even more so now. He feared that he was about to set back human Vulcan relations two hundred years. “Were you employing a human romantic tactic known as a pickup line?”she asked. 

I was really embarissed. I was not sure how to get out of this one. He was not sure how to procede. He did not like to lie.  I was not sure if i could wiggle my way out of this. I took a breath and decided to procede.  

“Yes i gues it was a pick up line.”he conceded. “That was what i suspected.  ” she said. “This was all a mistake.i said. I was hoping to get out of there as soon as he could. She was not alowing that to occur. 

“What was your intention?” she asked. “I am not entirety sure. I gues i acted out of impulse. ” he told her. If i was not sure why she continued to engage her. Try as he might,he could not get away. 

“You find me attractive? “She aaked. If i was not nervous before ,i really was now. “Well yes i do. I know that seams illogical to vulcans.it seams ilogical to manny humans. ” i remarked. 

“I see. Do you always  answer inquries with caviets?”she asked. “Not always. Often when i am nervous. “I reaplied. “Are you nervous? “She asked.  “Yes i am a bit. Your not exactly catching me at my best!”he said. “There is no need to be in a sate of agitation. You are among friends. ” she said.

“I will keep that in mind.  I said “please do. ” she responded. I figured i would not wee her again.  It was a large campus with a large student body. Right now i was not sure that i was wanted to see her again. I hoped she would forget this whole encounter.  If she was like most vulcans, she probability had a photographic memory.  She probably had a full trtranscrip of  this entire terrible conversation.  Preserved for her entire life. 

“Look i thought you were a teran. Most vulcans female ware there short. “I commented.  “Your no longer interested in me romantically now that you know that i am a vulcan?” she asjed.

If i did not know better,i would have suspected that she was enjoying this. 

“Well i was not certain before. I was  curious.  I suspected that that was a posibility . i wanted to explore that posibility. ” i told her.

“You are no longer interested. In me as a potential mate?” she asked. “No i stil am!” i said. “You are not open to a romantic relationship with a vulcan? ” she asjed.

I had no idea how to answer this one. If i answered yes. She might go into a diatribe on why human-vulcan coupling is ilogical. She might add that i was irrational and ilogical for even sugesting such a union.if i said no she might ask ne why not.  Either way,i was backed into a corner. That might have been her intention.  I suspected that it was. 

“Yes i would be open to a romantic relationship!” he said. I hoped that that was the right answer. 

 “As would i? Are you available tomorrow morning for cofee?” she asked. “Absolutely! “I said. “I am residing at sato hall. Please meet ne there promotly at 0730. Please do not be late!” she insisted.  “I wont. ” he said. “I am agreable to flowers.  I am found of lilacs.  ” she informed me. .

This was perhaps the weirdest first meeting i have ever had. That day i wanted it over.  Now it is a found memory.  This vulcan would one day be my wife.

The strictest Vulcan at the acedemy 

Cadat Gary masson was a freshman cadet at Star fleet acedemy. He was not a great student but was a good student. He had a b average. He had shown evidence of excellence in other areas. Star fleet believed he like be a fine addition to the service. 

His imiadiate cadet superior was even to the right of the acedemy faculty. She was a Vulcan.cadet tosoran. She was a freshman but as put in charge of the group of cadets. She would not let anyone forget it. Technically she was on the same level as the other cadets. You would never know it. The cadets on the floor did not like her. She was tough. She loved to put cadets on report. The Deen asked her to tone things done a bit. 

She was hard on Gary. Very tried to please her but it seemd h could not. Everything he tried failed. He feared that it was going to be a really long year. He hoped that the trouble would pass. It did not look good. It did not look that was going to happen. 

As the course of the year went by he began to suspect that she was different then any one knew. She was not quite the person people thought she was.he suspected that there was another side of tosoran.. she was complicated. He wanted to get to know her. 

“Hi .”Gary said.”hello cadet masson.”she said in her usual business like mannnor. ” look may I speak to you off the record .”,he asked.”very well .Gary is it ?”she asked.”yes.”he said. ” What is it?”she asked. ” Look I was wondering if you wanted to get together some time?”he asked.”are you asking me on a date?”she asked.he for really nervous. “Well yes I guess I am.”he answered. “Very well . Tomorrow 1600 hours.”she said. ” Very well . “He said. 

“Meet me outside my room . Please be prompt . 1600. Don’t be late. ” She said.”I will. “He said. He was really nervous. He wore a casual cadet sweater . He made sure that he was earlier .He was there five minutes early. He knocked on the door. The door was opened. She came out.she was not eating the usual cadet unfirom. She wore a purple dress . Her hair was braided. Manny Vulcan females had short hair but she did not know.she was not unattractive. “You look really nice tonight!”he saie.”thank you”she said.

They went to cosimo,a carafe in San Francisco. It was near the acedemy.she ordered a mocha latte. He ordered a ractigino. “So why did you ,what is the human expression ask me out?”she asked.”I wanted to get to know you. I know our relationship has been a bit tense. I understand that you are in authority. That is expected.i hope that I have grown over the course of this year and have smothed some rough edges. I may have some growing yet to do and I accept that.  I hope that we can be friends. “He said.

“So this is not a bet. This is not ranking of the shrew? “She asked.”no this is not a better. This is not an attempt to curie favior or anything like that. I am not trying to change our working relationship at all. This has nothing to do with acedemy life. “He said.

“Good. I did not believe that to be The  case. I was hoever Curious. “She said.” Understandable. “He said. ” So  are you Intersted in mearly friendship or something more permanent?”she asked.”to be honest,I am not sure. I guess I am open to a more permanent relationship if you were open to that.i am not sure. ” He said. ” I see. I too am open to explore such a possibility!”she said.”you would. I was not sure. “He said. 

“I had to be strict. I agree that you have grown. You showed promise even when I first met you. I would have not never admitted that until now.”she said.”I am glad to hear that. I am glad that you have noticed.”he said.” I am different off duty. I believe there is a time and place for everything. While I a! Still a Vulcan of course I try to be different off duty. “She said.”I can see that.i like this side of you.”he said.” I am agreed to hear that. “She said.

” Not that I don’t like your official Side. You are more relaxed. Is that a fair assessment?”h asked. “It is.”she said. ” Did you grow up on Vulcan?”he asked.”my mother lived on Vulcan. My father was a Star fleet officer. I spent some time on Vulcan and then some on a starship or stargaze. I have experienced life on Vulcan and with humans and non Vulcan s. I have seen both words. “She said. “I see. Your users to human non logical tendencies.”,he said.”I would hardly go that far. I do know what to expect for the most part. I am still astonished by human behavior I must say.,”she said.” “I don’t claim you there. We can be very erratic. “He said.,”very true !”he said. 

” I have come to expect it. I am willing to accept human behavior. I try to e!Brace the Vulcan philosophy of infinate diversity ininfi ate combinations.”she said.” What are you really like. Are you all logic ? All facts?”he asked.”I believe that is not quite the case.i am perhaps more complexed then that.”she said.”I had suspected that to be the case. “He said. 

” What is your interest. ” He asked. ” I build model ships. “She said.”I look forward to seeing your ships.”he said.”I would be willing to show you.”she said.”you play chess ?”he asked.,”,yes. We willl have to play some time.”she said.”indeed.”he answered. 

After the date they walked back to the campus. “So did I get a second date?,”he asked.” Yes. I would be agreed to that.”she said.”excellent! I look forward to it.”he said.”as do I!”she responded. 

The jilted pormachi part two.

Home of gired.
House of qotim.
Jorsa was a house keeper for the family. She loved and adored both the farther and son. She was going to check the room. She knocked on the door. Usually if gired was in the room, he would say if she could enter or not. She decided to enter.
She found him dead. A Klingon even one of a non warrior cast did not scream. No matter what. She found the captain of the gourd.
The Klingon high command sent the brotherhood of the sword criminal investigation unit. They quickly converged on the site. Colnel trag was placed in command the investigation.
He interviewed the house keeper. He interviewed the captain of the gourd and the security force.
“No one was admitted to the property prior to the murder?”trag asked “no sir ! No one tried to or were admitted!”captain jetair a answered. “Your certain ?”the colonel asked. “On the hourner of kahless I speak the truth!”the official said.
“What about transporters?” the investigating colonel asked. “We are checking. Our internal scanners do not scan for dominion devices.there are method of transportation that mat not be detected. “The head of the private force said.
“I want to know the minute you have something!”the colonel said. “Of course sir!”jetair told them.
“There is one person you should be talking to !” gired’s brother said. “Who is that ?”the colon asked.”Churia a non noble member of society. She threatened his life in front of his pre engagement procession. “Cholark informed him.  “You suspect this individual carried out the crime?”trag asked. “She threatened his  life. Now he is dead.it seams prety clear to me !” huleer his sister said.
“These non aristocratic citizens think that a polite content is a pledge of mating. They get confused easily. They can become very impulsive. “Qotim the head of the house said. He had been silent up to this point.
  “We will look into that. I an interested in justice. The killer Will be brought to justice regardless of class or standing in society. I will have you know I was not noble born nor are most of my staff. We all have vowed to serve the empire in an honourable fashion including chancellor Martok also of non noble blood!” the colonel said.
The head of the family ignored the colonels statement. The colonel could tell that he was irritated by the statement. While qotim was a superior officer the colonel saw him as a political apouinte not a fellow soldier of the empire.
The investigation had began in Ernest. The probe was going forward. “Sir! You have been summoned to see advocate Chipok!” an underling said.
“I hate it when superiors meddle in our affairs. We are in the middle of a criminal investigation. I have to leave it for a meeting. Its like what kahless once said’the death of the empire will be from endless meetings!”the colonel said. “He never said that!” a Jr officer said.”he would have had he had similar events in his day!”the colonel in charge said.
Office of public advocate Chipok
“Sir!”the colonel said. “Be seated !”the prosecutor instructed him. The military officer was reluctant to sit but decided to comply.
“Why have you not arrested Churia?”the head prosecutor asked.”the. Investigation is not complete. There is no direct evidence linking her to the crime !”the colonel declared.
“She threatened his life in front of thousands of people in the streets of the capital. Now he is dead.I see no reason not to have het charged.”Chipok said.
“I need to be able to conduct a through investigation. Please let me do my job!”the colonel pleaded.
“I see cause to arrest Churia.I order you to do so at once!”the prosecutor asked. “This is too early in the investigation. I ask you not to give that order. “The colonel said. “I disagre. I see plenty of evidence to justify going forward. I will not ask you again. My orders will be followed.
“I must object !”the colonel said.”your objection is noted.will you follow my orders?”the prosecutor asked. “Yes sir. Your orders will be followed ‘s is!’the colonel said
“A wise decision !”the prosecutor said.
Churia was walking with her friend though the streets of the business district of qamche.she had no idea that gired was dead.
Sudenly they were swrounded by Klingon military officers. Curia arms were placed into large wooden restraints.”what is going on?”her friend asked. “She is charged with murder!” the lead officer declared.
She was escorted to the local lock up. The cells were cold and damp. She asked for a lawyer. Her cousign was a lawyer. He was not very good. He had never won a case. Then again few lawyers in the Klingon empire did. Klingon trial we’re not known to be fair and impartial.
P’mok was at a cafe ran by a Vulcan. Kitomer three opened up trade and interaction between the federation and the empire. Surprising the cafe was quite popular.even the chancellor frequinted the establishment as did the clone of kahless who Sat as emparor.
“I should practice law in the federation. Then I have a chance to win !”p’mok said. “The greater a challenge the greater the victory. This is just another battle field!”his assistant drelia said . “now you sound like Chipok!.” he said.
“In this he is correct. The law is a battlefield. You have to keep pushing. Besides the council is going to debate marrok’s judicial reform package. “She said. “Mayby I am not really a fighter like my esteemed college who represents the sate. Perhaps I am a paper tiger after all!”he said.
“I have never believed that. I don’t think you do either!”the Secretary said. A Klingon security officer went to the cafe.
“Advocate p’mok?” the officer asked. “Yes! “He asked. “Curia has been arrested for murder! She has asked for you to represent her!”he said.
He and his cousign had always been close. They were raised as brother and sister after her farther died. He liked her. Now she was good as dead. An arrest on son is was a conviction. Not even a good lawercould help her and he was not a good lawyer.
End of part two.

Advocate p’mok and the case of the jilted parmochi

Planet qonos
Curilia was walking the streets of the capital city. She went though the market. She walking fruits and vegtibles. She enjoyed the imported foods from bolias. The pro federation government on qonos has increased trade with the federation . while curia was apolitical,she did love bolien produce. She hopped that the trade continued.
She heard a ruckus.on the Klingon home world,a commotion like this usually ment that a legendary warrior was returng from a conquest. Either that or a warrior that was legendary in his one mind and needed confirmation form the mrsses so he would organize a magshift perade. Klingons loved pageantry so they would join in no matter what. It was hardly a gauge of one standing in imperial society.
She decided to see what was going on. Sure enough there was an extensive throng.
Sh saw that it was thought admiral qotim . qotim’s rank was mostly ceremonial. His grandfather had been a fleet admiral who commanded several raids against the federation,Romuluns and the keel. Qotim lived off of his family glory. He was more successful at the chessboard then the battle field.
She had no idea what the fuss was all about. She asked a friend of hers. “Kuri what is going on?”curia asked. “The thought admiral is celebrating the parmoch of his son gired and the lady huela !” she said.
“They have become parmochi ?”she said. “Aperently. Why does she get him? “Her friend said.
Unlike his farther gired was a genuine war hero. He disabled a scrudrin of jemheder fighters with just four birds if prey. Not only that Klingon women found him irresistible. Everyone women wanted to be mated with him.
Curia got very angery. Not academic wage but a furias wage. A wage combrible to Gary Mitchell after he was subjected to the energy barrier at the center of the galaxy.
What no one knew was that she and gired had caried on a secret romance for quite some time. Despite his great grand farther military success,the family were comoninors. They had planed to be formerly we’d. Then the Klingon’s brief war with the federation over archanis and then the dominion war broke out. He joined the k.d.f he rose to a Commodore. It seem the hype had gone to his head.
Lady hurla was a member of an aristocratic family.rumors were that th family patriark had been a soldier who served under simple considered the greatest emperor second only to kahless himself. Marying him would be a huge boon both to gired and his farther.
Before the war gired had been a man of horror. His New fame had gotten to his head. She was furias.she moved on. “Curie whare are you going?” her friend asked.
She headed for the throng. Gired was with his betrothed. Both sets of presents were present. She went right up to gired.
“How could you? You scheming furengi romulina hybrid!”Curia said.”please let me explain!”gired pleaded. “He has no time for you! Your not women enough for him!”huela said.”he is not interested in you only your land,and prestege. “Curia said.”my son is a giant he has no time for a peasant!”gired farther said. ” well if I can’t have him,no one can! You are a dead man!”she said .she ran off.
Admiral qotem wanted her placed under arrest but gired would not hear of it. They tried to get him to reconsider but he would not.
She told her friend what happened.”Curie that is a really bad idea to threaten the life of a war hero. “Her friend said “I know. He was a man of hournor before. Now he is drunk with power. He used to make fun if people like huela. He would not even be in the same room as her let alone marry her. ” she said .
After a time gired returned to the family estate. He went into his private study. He ordered his body gourds not to let anyone into his office.
Klingon hated paper work. It was necessary. Gired had to clean up the mass made by his father. He was a terrible accountant and administrator. Gired had to correct it. It was a full time job keeping the house of qotim a float.
He heard a noise.he turned around.a dager was pushed into him. He fell to the ground. He died shortly after.
The war hero. A future leader of the Klingon empire.dead. murdered.how had done it?
To be continued.

Baby shower

The planet be taxed ,an influential member of the federation. Batazoids played a key role in federation affairs. Many were diplomats,scientist philosophers and many were in Starfleet.
Natasha ryker Picard was partily batazoid. Her mother was half human half beta zed and her farther human. She grew up mostly in space and spent little time on the planet. It held a special place in her heart never the less.
Her grand mother lived on beta zed.she tried to visit as much as she could. This visit was not quite her idea.
She was nine mounths pregnant. Her family decided to have a baby shower. She was not against it but she never liked having a fuss made about her. Her grandmother a diplomat and states women was all about it.
Luxana was a former head of sate and a former cabinet member to a president so she had her superior order her to beta zed. You don’t refuse the daughter of the fith house.
She did not know half of the attendees. She ran into her mom and mother in law. “I promise we were not involved! “Deana said. “I hardly know anyone!”she said. “Many of them are powerful. Probibly good gifters!”bevily said.”just what my baby needs,gd presed latnum crib!”she said.
Outside the home,an alien disguised as a beta zoid neared the gate. He took out a device. Several other aliens took out smal devices.
Beta zed orbital base
“Sir! I cannot detect the estate of the troy!”the tech said. “Are you sure?”the watch commander asked.”it’s like part of the planet is musing!”the tech said.”get me the first minister! “The watch commander ordered.
Natasha nor any of the guest was aware that the house had been cut off form the rest of the galaxy. None of the guest with telepathic abilities sense that something was amiss.
Natasha talked with several of the guest. The ones she knew and the ones she did not know. While mysterious aliens were at work.
Several walked up to her. “Hello!”Natasha said. Deana suddenly sensed something was art.she excused herself and ran to her daughter.
Sudenly the creature created some kind of force fielf. Deana tried to breach the field but was repelled. Bevily Picard ran over to her.
She asked someone to call  for security. None of the com badges we’re functional. They were trapped. Unable to escape and unable to help Natasha.
Obital base
“Your saying part of the planet is gone?”first minister hovered asked.”according to the sensors it does not exist . I do not know why!”the tech said .”security forces are on route to investigate !”the base watch announced.
“I want updates as soon as you know something. “The minister said.”you Wil be informed as soon as we know something excelentlcy.”the commander reported.
Deana tried to contact her daughter from inside the void. She could not get though. She suspected that the void or
Whatever it was was cut off form the rest of time. Perhaps she was in a different dimension. She was very woried.
Natasha was not sure where she was. The area looked green. She was not sure what was going on. She did not know where was was.
“Where am I? Is anyone else hear! I demand you show yourself! “Natasha asked.
No one showed up. She had no idea if she was being watched. For all she knew she was inside a creature.in her time in star fleet she had seen a lot of unusual things . that was not to mention the things she saw growing up on the u.s.s titen and star base 388. Of course she heard the stories of her parents on the enterprise and other ships.
Could she be inside negilum’s void? Could this be the bizare phynominion that targarted Picard due to the fact that it perceived Picard to be it’s brain. Could it be a creature?
She applied her telepathic abilities. She was more limited in her abilities then even her mother. She still tried.she senced nothing. Nayby this life form could not be detected.perhaps there was no creature. She did not bring herself hear. She got hear somehow.something else was at work.
Any attempt to get to the properly had failed. It was like it did not exist.planetary security assumed that it was the work of a force field.no one was sure.
Planetary officials worked around the clock to breach the barier or whatever it was. They tested a transporter using a test clinlinder but it all failed. They still tried.
Inside the green area,Natasha just wanted to be home. She wanted to be free. She yelled but no one answered.
Was this a prison? Was this a waiting room. Why was she hear.Was this an abduction or something else. Was she being scanned and she just did not know it? She had no clue. All she could was wait.
Star fleet corps of engineers had an office on the planet. They joined the beta zed government in trying to get into the estate.
The s.c.e came up with a creative idea. The corps suspected that the area might be under a phase cloak. They attempted to send in a team under the phase cloak. The team headed inside the field.
Luaxana was very worried for her granddaughter. Not nearly as woried as her mother Deana. So was natasha’s mother in law.the gateway opened, the team emerged.
Office of the first minister
“The estate was some how caught off from the rest of the galaxy. It was a self contained cylinder. The government working with the s.c.e sucesfully retrieved the estate and restored it to our time. Unfortunately we have not located lt. Natasha rycer Picard!”the minister of interior Said.
“You have no idea where she is?”the first minister asked. “Not as of yet minister!”the interior minister said.
Deana tried to access her daughter. She tried to contact her.she was unable to find her.she was not sure where Natasha was. She was not if she stil was.she clung to the view that Natasha and her unborn child were alive and well.she just wished she knew where.
Deana Sat on the ground .she tried to focus on Natasha. She closed her eyes. She tried to call out in her mind to tasha. “Tash! Can you hear me?”she said.
Whever Natasha was she Was stil there. There was no sign she was going to be free any time soon. There had to be a way out. She could not accept that she was stuck hear.
She saw someone. She saw the person in the shadow. The person came out of the shadows . “you should not exist. You would not had it not been for the qayler!”the shadow man said.
“What are you some kind of watch dog group? ” she asked. “We stop the unatual! You are unatual!” the shadow man declared. “No I am not! Oh my! You want to stop me and my baby! Why are you doing this?”she said. “Wrong ! Unatual !”the shadow man said.
“I am not unatual. The reason for my inability to thrive was the result of interference. This was a correction of manipulation. “She declared. “Two wrongs do not make a right!” the shadow man said.
“Please let me continue. Let my daughter continue. “She said. The shadow man said. The man considered it.
Deana thought she got something.she focused. Sudenly tasha was back. Deana hugged her.
The u.s.s ticonderago was on petrol. “Sir! Your neaded on beta zed ! “The Jr officer said. “Do you know why?”lt commander Rene Picard asked. “You are now a farther! Mother and daughter are doing well!” the officer said.
The end

Torents of fire

Tadeb looked over the terminal. Everything was in place. The fake distress call had been sent. The fake sensor readings were in place. Now he would wait. Then he would strike.
Most humanoids were unable to servive in the vacume of space for a prolonged time but he could. He could not be in space without an e.v.a suit indefinently but a few days was not a problem. This mission would not take days. In theory it could be over rather quickly. That was the hope.
The Carolina was a scout vessel that was part of star fleet patrol fleet. It was smal and cramped. It was designed for utility not comfort. It served it’s purpose.
“I should have not have said anything!”lt Rene Picard said.”what’s that? “Lt j.g Natasha Ryder asked. “At the first contact dinner I mentioned to my dad I would like a command of my own. I ment in a few years. I did not mean a glorified shuttle! ” Rene said.
“Captain! We are getting a distres call from a talerien freighter. They say they are experiencing engine trouble. “Lt. Broskel a benzite said.
“Send the coordinates to my station!” Rene said. He got the coordinates. The ship set course for the freighter. “Course plotted.”Natasha said.
“Why are the teleriens this close to Cardesien space? I understand that the teleriens and Cardesien are part of the kitomer coilition but given the bad blood between the two,I would not risk it.”Rene said.
“I thought you wanted excitement Rene ?”Natasha said. “I did!”he said. “The other ships are on there way!”a bolien said. “Have them stand by. We have no idea what this is. ” Rene said.
Tedeb could empathically sense the presence of the crew of the scout ship. He knew they were getting closer. He would soon be able to challenge them.
The scout ship headed to the source of the distress call. They had no idea that it was am ambush.
“We are nearing the source of the dibre!”the benxite said. “Scan the area!”‘rene the pilot and commanding officer said.”I am detecting dibre. It is telarian.I believe that the vessel was destroyed.” the bolien said.
“Whoever did this did it fast!”Natasha said.” sir The dibre was not recent. “Broskel said.”it’s a trap! We are getting out of hear!”the commanding officer said.
The scout vessel tried to get out of the way. The Cardesien augment left the debre field. He appeared to fly though space. The augment arrived at the ship.
“We have incoming! “Natasha said the Cardesien arrived at the ship. He seemed to walk though the walls of the ship.
The augment entered the cock pit.he appeared to have the ability to walk though walls. Was he phased or something else? The crew was shocked.
The benzyte got up. His eyies emitted a kind of pulse. The Jr officer was  vaporized .
The chasers were locked away. Rene figured that the Cartesian would never let them get to the weapons.
“What do you want? “The officer in charge asked. “I want the ship! I will have it!”the man said. “Who are you? I am thinking your true way?”Rene said.
“Surender and you will not be harmed. I am only interested in the ship!”the augment said. “What is your aim with the ship?”Rene said.
Rene suspected it was probably some kind of Trojan horse style invasion it attack. The true way was a quasi political and religious group. They opposed Cardesien involvement in the kitomer coalition.  He was guessing that this was a plot to pit the federation against the Cardesien and fracture the alience. At the same time emberes the detopa council who support the partnership.
There was rumors that the true way were involved in genetic augmentation. This was similar to earth ‘s eugenics program that led to the rise of Khan Singh. It seemed that those rumors were true.
The Augment went for the bolien.the bolien tried to lunge into the attacker.the man’s eyes emitted the weapon at him. The officer was vaporized.
“You have no choice ! I am basically in charge of this ship any ways so why not yield?”the cardesien said. “Never! You won’t my ship! You Wil do it without my help!”Rene said. “Or myine!”Natasha said. “Very unwise!” the alien said.
Rene knew that they had to resist but did not know how to accomplish that. The cardesien was in charge of the ship effectively. The ship was basically under the control of the attacker. The alien did not have actual control. Might made right but only to a point.
Rene had to think fast. That was not much to combat generic enhancements. Rene lapped to his feet. He set up a forcefield. His eyes fired on the force field. The field held. The augment was furious. “Deactivate that field!” the cardesien insisted.”what you will destroy the ship if I don’t?”the star fleet officer in command said.
The cardesien was furious. The commanding officer could tell that. The cardesien tried to back them to a corner.
He had to come up with a longer lasting solution. He had to do it now. Time was of the essence. That was not an understatement. He was known for thinking on his feet. That was his reputation.
He scanned the area. After a scan by the computer ,he was prety sure that he found what he could find It.
The ship went to warp. Natasha. Had no idea what he was planing.she trusted him. She knew he only did what was absolutely nesciary. She would not questione him. She knew he had a plan even if she did not know what that was.
The ship headed for a nebula. It was a tactic many star fleet captains might attempt. Many if course have. He was out of options.
The ship headed into the nebula. He hoped maybe the nebula would render his abilities neutralized. He had no idea if that was the case. He released the force field. Natasha was shocked that he would attempt something this bold.
The cardesien augment found he could not operate in the nebula.he would not just give up. He decided to try to get the upper hand the old feshoned way. He hit him. Rene struck him back. The two wrestled though the ground.
They exchanged punches. They Rolled around they punched.they kept doing that over and over .the Victor was undetermined for quite some time.
Natasha went and took out a phaser and fired on the attacker. The phasers did nothing. The nebula did not effect his natural armor.
Natasha wanted Rene out if danger.  She knew him sense they were both babies. His parents we’re friends with her parents. She went from being his best friend, to having the turlurian plaugue to being friends. She wanted it to be more. She cared for him deeply.
He punched the super cardesien. He punched back. He had quite a punch. Rene would not yield. He May not be as strong as tedeb but he was just as determined.
Natasha fired again. She had the phaser on kill. He barely did any damage. She went for a head schot. She fired. He stumbled. He got back up. Rene punched him.
He fell over. He collapsed. The blast took a bit but he keeled over.
The two hug each other. “I was so scared for you!” she said. “I was scared for you! “He admitted.
After a few minutes of embracing,they decided to get back to work. The scout ship left the nebula.
The vessel randevez with the rest of the patrol task force. The true way planed to have tedeb seize one of the patrol ships. They would have a fleet standing by . the ship would collide into the observation post at the planet cafeer four. The fleet would strike and would capture the sector.
They hoped that the victory would inspire citizens of the cardesien republic to overthrow the elected civilian government and ask the true way to form a new government.
Now that would not happen. The true way would not give up. This was a major set back. This would bring the federation and cardesien republic closer together not further apart as the plotters hoped.
Both Rene ans Natasha were given comidations. Rene hoped that this would bring him closer to getting a major class of a starship in the fleet. When he got a command he would definitely want Natasha as his exo.
The end.
This is set in the early 25th century.
The cardesien union is now a republic. The detopa council is an elected border with a written constitution.
This is rewrite of the previous post.I was not pleased with the earlier version but liked the concept.


Planet rougue

In 2401, the Cardesien union had been transformed into the Cardesien republic. A once warlike empire replaced by a peacefull stabilizing force.
A group opposed to the reform called the true way revolted. They seized control of the planet sucrora.they declared it the real Cardesien home world.
While the federation has returned to it’s roots. They have returned to exploration. They have responded when necessary.
The planet m 137 was a planet that was near territory belonging to the federation. The true way claimed it as well. Star fleet mantaned an unmanned facility on the planet nicknamed planet rougue. A team came to checked it out every six mouths.
“Scan for any ships in the area!”the officer in charge ordered. The other officer began the scan. “I am nit detecting anything sir. “The female officer said. “Ok move in closer to the planet. Prepare to land. “Lt. Jr grade Rene Picard ordered.
The scout ship moved closer to the planet. The vessel began to land. The landing was complete. The Door opened, the four officers excited the smal craft. The officers headed toward the facility. The facility would have all the data the setilites gathered on true way activity in the sector.
Standing orders was to be eternally vigilant. All scans showed the planet to be life less. They still had to be carefull. Truy way optitives loved to diploy mines or other Bobby traps.
They neared the facility. Lt. J.g Picard entered his password. All of the team members had to give there hand print. The door opened. The team entered. They were inside. “Corbin Jefferies proceed to the reactor. Conduct the usual diagnostic then report back. Natasha with me !” he said.
The door closed . other doors shut. They were trapped. Some kind of door way opened up. Corbin prepared to open fire. A mobile mine came though. He tried to dodge it. The mine exploded killing Corbin.
The rest of the team got there phasers ready. Another door way opened, Jefferies fired. A Cardesien came though. The man fired on Jefferies. Then he phased away. Natasha went over to Jefferies. The officer was dead.
The two ran to a doorway. Natasha tried to override the lockout  and open the door. Rene attempted to cover her. The door way could oppen any where. It seemed that this was a planned ambush. The purpose of the attack was not clear.
Ensign  riker did everything she could think of to oppen the door. They both knew that Time was not on there side. At any time a door way could open. Either a mine or true way soldier or any other surprise they could think off might come against them.
Natasha was an expert on computers. She was well versed in technology. She was highly saught after for missions such as this.after multiple attempts she thought of something. She jumped at the chance and gave it a try. She had no idea if it would  work or not. She had no choice but to try.
The door opened. The two ran out. They had there phasers ready. “It worked?” Picde declared. “Why rin you sound surprised. What ?.you don’t have confidence in my abilities?”she asked.
“No of course not tash! “Rene said.”we need to seal this door!”she told him. “If we do we could be trapped ” Rene told him.
“We have no Choice. According to the tricorder, only the bay is susceptible to the doorway. Somehow the bay was slightly removed from the space time continuum. I don’t think they can use the gateway in hear. At least not yet. I have no idea how long that will last. ” she said.
The two officers revealed the hatch. He knew that she was right but  he stil was concerned by all this. It was a risk.
The team continued to move out.they kept going. They tried to get to a computer terminal. She scanned the terminal. “The terminal is rigged with explosives. ” she reported.
“Of course it is. They think of everything. “Rene said. “Indeed they do. Lets see if maybe there are other terminals that have not been tempered with. “Natasha suggested.”lets see. Can’t hurt to look!”he said. “Agreed”Rene said.
The two made it to another terminal. She scanned it with the recorder. “It is boobytraped!”she announced.
To the officers in charge’s astonishment, she went for the terminal. “Tash what are you doing?” Rene Picard asked. “As i suspected. It was a false reading.they were trying to fool us. Scare us into cowering in fear. The syustom was purged. They erased everything. “She said.
“So they got whatever information this facility had accumulated and we can’t get to it.  “Rene said.
“It would seam so!” he said. “I am guessing that they are either planing to mobilize near hear or unleash some kind of weapon perhaps a biogenic or either kind of weapon of planetary destruction. “Natasha said.
“They have to be up to something. I am sure of that. “The Sr officer said. 
“They have gone to a lot of trouble to keep us hear. ” she said. “Yes they certainty have. “He said.
They heard noise.someone was heading there way. Rene decided to engage them. They got there phasers ready. A Cardesien fired  on them. They returned.
Natasha ducked the fire. She nearly made it. Rene fired. The scooter seemed to divide himself.
Starfleet and allied intelligence suspected that the true way was experimenting in genetic augmentation. This seemed  to include  some Kind of bilocation.
The Cardesien split into five.they all came at them. Rene fired on the head of the first scooter. The rest vanished. The scooter fell to the ground.
The scooter was dead. They got the disruptor. “I am detecting multiple augmentation!”she said. “There were rumors that the true way had been researching genetic augmentation. It Seams its true !”Rene said .
“It is like they are toying with us. Taunting us. They have the information. They May have this planet. “She said.
“The true way is a quasi political and religious. Mayby they want to prove the superity of Cardesien over humans or over the federation. “He said.
“We should get moving. “She said. They got moving.they made it to the command deck. The control room was like the rest of the facility.it was smal. The base was mostly automated. Use by actual people was on routine visit that ocured twice a year. There were not a lot of creature comforts.
She tried to access the back up files. Mostlikly they had been erased as well. Mayby there were in a hury.
“If my parents knew what I was doing right now they would be in a panic!” tasha said.”she cannot sense you?”he asked. “Not from this distance. I hope. Hopefully grandma can’t. “Natasha said.
“You think you have it bad tas,I was born later in both my parents life. I am surprised they let me go to class which was on the other side of the ship. “Rene said
“You think we will make it out of hear ren?”she asked. “I am not giving up? “Rene said.
“Secondary backup files were erased. “She said. “I am not surprised. This sector is remote. An attack on the Cardesien republic or the federation would be impractical at this juncture. “Rene said.
Rene motioned for her to follow him. “What’s going on?”she asked. He turned on the outside monitoring devices.
“They are trying to steal the scout ship. My gues they will arm it with a biogenic weapon. The vessel will head for star base 492. It will detonate the weapon. The true way can force the federation to pull out of  the sector. They can curve all enough sector to lunch sn invasion of the republic. “He said.
“I am attempting to activate the photon launcher. Its off line. “She said. “I have another idea. ” he attempted to override the shops functions from his watch.
The scout ship left the ship. “They are clear of the planet. “She said. The vessel stayed on course.
“There is no way to stop that ship now!”Natasha said. “Mayby there us!” the commanding officer said.
It j.g Picard went to the bay. He took a device he found on the augmented Cardesien. He activated the doorway.
The officer emerged on the ship. The vessel was on auto pilot. He cod not deactivate the auto pilot. He took out a phaser. He set IT for over load. He tried to open the doorway. It would not oppen.
It had to be done. His sacrifice would hopefully save federation and Cardesien lives. He hoped that his action would stop a war. The scout ship exploded.
Natasha saw the ship explode. She started to cry. She turned around and saw Rene. “How are you hear?”she asked. She hugged him and held him tightly. “I have no idea. The ship exploded and then I was hear. “He said.
They repaired the com relay. Then the u.s.s Constantinople arrived to pick them out.
With the plot thawed the invasion was postponed. They had dodged that bullet. Calm returned to the region.
Was this a fluke between Rene Picard and Natasha Rucker. Time will tell.
The end.
Rene Picard was the son of Jean luc and bevily Picard. His character was used in the poker book star trek the next generation novels that took place after star trek nemesis.
Natasha Ryker is the daughter of William t Ryker and Deana troy Ryker. In the destiny novels Deana appeared to be poised to lose the baby. Intervention by aliens called the queler . alowed her body to be restored an bring her to term.
In the. Noval needs of the Manny, a mobilization of the star trek on line, Rene and Natasha married. Rene did not join Starfleet. That was a parallel universe.
