Subject: a new opporunity...


Note: This post is a collaborative effort between myself and Alacrity.


Stadate: 2366.10.21
USS Discovery, captain's ready room - 0915

Avanti stared back at Captain Blair for a moment, “What do you mean – transfer, sir?”

“Captain Horatio has pulled some strings and called in some favors," Blair replied. "He wants you as his first officer on the new Valmont. I am not surprised, and frankly, I find it hard to believe that you would be.”

“Captain Horatio had discussed with me the idea but I felt that my place was here on the Discovery, sir. Furthermore, I only completed my command training less than three months ago.” Avanti stared back at the captain looking uncomfortable. “I like being an engineer, Sir.”

“And I like being a scientist. Command doesn’t mean you have to give up your passions.” Noah laughed, “You just have to learn to juggle them a bit differently.”

“It is not my ambition to be a Captain.” the big engineer stated.

Noah smiled. “Avanti, I have seen some very ambitious officers in my time. People who wanted to be in command so badly they would take any assignment or dangerous mission to prove their worth. You, however, have been in many dangerous situations, proven yourself time and time again, and then, without a sound returned to your post as if nothing had happened.” He smiled and leaned back in his chair, pointing towards his display of books behind him, “A great Terran once said, those who most desire power are least fit to wield it. Frankly, after the Zellog Incident, I have received no less than fourteen inquiries by captains, and that isn’t including how many must have spoken to you directly.”

The Zellog Incident The big engineer recalled grimly, How could anyone forget the Zellog Incident…...

* * *

=/= Captain’s log, supplemental. Stardate four three five five one point nine, Lieutenant Commander Avanti reporting.

We remain in orbit over Zellog Prime. Captain Blair and First Officer Gavison have beamed down to the planet to make the necessary arrangements for the peace negotiations. The Captain felt it was import to go down to the planet as a sign of faith to the Zellogites. They have been fighting a civil war for so many years that only through the federation mediators, was any chance of peace found.

The Mediators and the Federation diplomats have arrived in the shuttle hanger, via the runabout Moto. Lieutenant MacTavish has gone down to greet them and provide them with quarters until the captain can bring the delegates from the planet. Since no place on the planet could be decided upon for a neutral site, the Discovery has been chosen as the place for the negotiations. =/=

Avanti looked up from the console on the arm of the Captain’s chair at the planet below. Zellog had two moons that moved in counter elliptical orbits. This made it difficult on the young navigator, Ensign Gates, who had to correct his course regularly to compensate for the gravitational pull. “Doing a fine job there, Ensign Gates.” Avanti said quietly to the young Terran. He smiled at the praise but did not look up from the control panel.

=/= Commander Avanti? =/=

The big man touched his communicator, “Go ahead, Mr. MacTavish.”

=/= Th’ dips be in th’ hanger, sair. We’ll be proceedin’ just’s soon’s they figger oot which one of ‘em’s got th’ most authority’s ta be th’ fairst one off th’ runaboot. =/= Avanti could hear the frustration in the Scot’s voice. =/= Et could be awhile, sair. =/=

“Acknowledged. I’d advise against calling them 'Dips', Jack. It could catch on.” Avanti said with a chuckle.

=/= Aye sair. MacTavish Out =/=

It was only three weeks since Avanti completed the Starfleet “Command Training Modules” and he was already serving as acting Captain. The engineer missed his regular role as chief engineer, where he could listen to the resonance of the warp core and be responsible for machines, not people. He looked over to the engineering station of the bridge, currently monitored by Ensign Tier. He felt a pinge of envy toward the man.

“Commander?”

His thoughts disturbed, Avanti turned to the young lady staring up at him. A yeoman, holding a PADD in his direction, and looking up at him with that awed look he had come to expect from humans. “Yes, Yeoman?” He asked.

“The Duty Roster for your review. Sir.” She said. Of course the roster could be sent directly to the Captain’s console, but Starfleet had some funny quirks about using personnel and getting personal marks.

Thank you, Yeoman. What is your name?”

“Ayn. Sir. Yeoman Ayn.”

Avanti looked over the roster quickly; he was sure that Raines had put his usual high level of attention to the list. “Been on the Discovery long, Yeoman?”

She smiled prettily, “Just a few weeks. I was on the Alexandra before.”

Avanti gave her a smile back and handed the PADD to her, “ Thank you …” He started and trailed off, as if listening to something. Ayn took the PADD gingerly and looked around as if expecting something to happen.

“Ensign!" Avanti exclaimed. "Evasive action Delta! Now! Full impulse! Break orbit!”

Whether it was the tone of the command or the stalwart training of Starfleet, Ensign Gates didn’t question the sudden order. His hands flew across the control panel, slamming the ship into a hard to starboard peel and throwing the engines into full. Avanti grabbed the arm of the young yeoman to steady her. Teir wasn’t so lucky and tumbled downwards over the banister of his station, “What the Gokk bonking hell?”

Ensign Colvin at the tactical station called out, “Sir? What is going on?” as he spoke the TAC display lit up. “Sir we have a missile lock on us! Bearing 6.49 and closing fast. How did you…?”

“Harmonics. I felt it coming.” Avanti answered curtly, “Shields up! Target the missile and deploy counter measures. When you get a lock, do a tight beam with full power, I don’t want it exploding and us getting in the shockwave. Red Alert! Battlestations! Where did that missile come from?” the klaxons sounded and the lighting on the bridge and throughout the ship changed.

=/= Avanti! What inna bloody hell’re ye doin’, laddie! I got dips sprawled arsehole ta elbow ever’where! =/= MacTavish’s voice came over the comm.

“We are under attack Jack. Avanti Out.” The commander quickly shut down the line, wanting to focus on the problem in hand.

"Target acquired, sir.” Colvin called out.

“Fire!” Avanti called out. The rear phaser arrays hummed briefly and the ship was rocked slightly, but not as much as the maneuver they had just pulled.

“Sir! Target destroyed," the TAC officer reported. "The missile came from the largest moon. Sensors show a remote launch site there. There was only the one missile – A Cardassian Hemala class Anti-matter cluster. That is pretty old technology.”

“Old gokk bonking Tech, my ass!” Teir called out, “A Hemie would have torn a gokk bonking hole in the ship the size of a gokk bonking T’bal!”

“We will worry about that later. Contact the Captain immediately.” Avanti ordered.

“Sir. Our transmissions are being jammed!” The TAC officer said, “And I have four bogeys closing in fast on us. Small fighter ships by the size of them. Look like old Mark 5’s, and they are armed with … lasers.”

“Lasers? The Gokk Bonkers can fire at us until the fuel cells are drained. Lasers can’t breach our hull.” Tier laughed with contempt as he retook his post.

“Sir!” Lieutenant Hemlos at science called out, “I am picking up time space distortions within those ships. Very small, and likely man-made.” She looked up from her viewer, “Sir, they are using dimensional transporters!”

“Seal all decks! Put security protocol Theta into effect now!” Avanti ordered. Colvin immediately ran to the weapons locker and started to hand out phasers to the bridge. He was almost to Avanti when the first invaders appeared.

There was a brief shimmer and a sound like the ripping of cloth. Then two Zellogites were on the bridge, one near the turbolift and the other in the centre of the room, close to the Captain’s chair. Neither were armed but both were covered head to toe with explosives. Avanti didn’t hesitate but threw himself upon the much smaller Zellogite, grabbing his arms and spreading them apart so he couldn’t trigger the bomb. The other man saw his partner go down and triggered his immediately.

The man and bombs exploded, sending debris and people flying across the deck. Fortunately, the fire containment units kicked in and kept the fire under control. Avanti stood up. “Damage Report! Who’s with me?” He looked around to see the TAC ensign Colvin was dead, having taken the brunt of the blast with his body. The Yeoman Ayn was on the ground, her eyes staring up at him like a reproach from the dead. The other ambusher had been under Avnati when the bomb went off. The force of the blast had pushed the engineer hard against the other man, killing him in the process and probably saving Avanti.

“The gokk bonkers!” A call came from beside him. He turned to help Teir stand up.

‘You okay?”

“The Gokk bokkers! What did they do this for? It’s a gokk bonking peace mission!” Tier exclaimed.

“Religious extremists,” Avanti replied. "They are a fringe group of Zellog, believing that all who are not of the true race are impure. Millions of systems out there, and these people can’t get past the idea of dying in the name of their deity. Check the crew. Find the survivors.”

“Sir! We have reports coming in.” Avanti turned around surprised at the voice. Ensign Gates was still sitting at his post. “No invader activity on any decks so far sir, but there are massive energy readings in the shuttle bay.”

Avanti click his communicator, “Jack! You there?”

=/= Under attack Commander! No’ th’ best time fer chit chat! =/= came the terse response over phaser fire.

I probably deserved that, Avanti thought to himself.

Tier called out, “Hemlos is unconscious but alive. James is out cold as well, and so is Fallon. The gokk-bonking three over by the door are all gone, Avanti. It’s just the gokk bonking three of us.” Tier handed a phaser to Avanti while taking two for himself, one in each hand.”

“Ensign, what is our …” Avanti started to ask as the sound of cloth ripping came again. The commander crouched low to the ground, firing a beam directly at the new invader who was caught surprised to find anyone still alive. The direct hit put him down fast. Meanwhile, Tier was firing away with both phasers as three more assailants appeared on the bridge. Teir brought himself back to back with Avanti. The Zellogites were using a high energy laser that seemed to take a long time to charge between firing, leaving open to the Federation’s superior weaponry.

“You gokk bonkers want a piece of me!” bzap Come on, you gokk bonkers! bzap bzap Want some of this! bzapbzap. Not on my gokk bonking ship! You hear me!” bzapbzapbzap.

While Avanti and Tier took on the attackers, Ensign Gates dropped and rolled across the floor. Then he sprinted low to grab a phaser and join in the defense.

“Ensign! I need you to take TAC. Take the ships out!” bzap Avanti shouted at the ensign while sweeping away two more invaders. bzap

“You gokk bonking gokks!” bzapbzapbzap

“Sir!” bzap The Ensign replied, “I flunked TAC in the academy!”

Avanti looked at the charge on his phaser as there was a lull in the invaders beaming in, “Consider this the make up test! Now Go!”

Ensign Gates ran to the Tactical station just as the ripping noise began again. Three more attackers fell to Teir’s phaser before the Ensign had a chance to see the console was dead. bzap He started to re-route power.

“These gokk bonkers are pathetic! They beam in so gokk bonking disoriented, it is like shooting Gokk in a box.” Teir laughed bzapbzap.

Avanti smiled encouragingly at Tier but didn’t feel so optimistic. He wondered how Lieutenant MacTavish was doing in the Shuttlebay.

“Sir. I have power again. Sir! There is a shuttle leaving the hangar!”

The invasion force stopped as suddenly as it had began. Teir remained poised for attack while Avanti came over to the TAC station.

“The shuttle is engaging the enemy ships, sir.” Ensign Gates reported. “Shall I attack as well?”

“Hold on ,Ensign.” Avanti activated the communication console on the station. “Shuttle Craft Moto, This is Commander Avanti. Please Report.”

=/= Avanti! Good ta hear yer voice, me boy! I knew ye’d manage. I’ve go’ our dips all safe an’ sound, sair; I ‘ad ta make a wee mess inna shootlebay but I got ‘em bairded an’ tucked in, so I figger ta teach these lads a thing er two aboot blowin’ smoke up a Federation kilt… These ships’re no’ vera well equipped… scarce able ta carve a scratch onna Moto. =/=

Avanti’s eyes bulged, “Did you say you have the Diplomats with you?”

Gates continued to report, “He has disabled three of the ships, sir. Closing in on the fourth.”

=/= Aye, Commander. Dinnae get yer knickers inna knot, sair, they’ll be jus’ fine. =/=

“In a fire fight!’ Really, Jack!”

“Last ship is disabled Commander.” Gates reported.

“Okay, Lieutenant. Bring them on home. Avanti out!”

Avanti sighed and shook his head. “Get the ship back to Zellog and contact the Captain immediately. Call a medical team to the bridge.”

“That will be a gokk bonking problem, Avanti.” Tier said, pointing to the doors to the turbolift. There Avanti saw that one on the invaders, using the dimensional technology had appeared in the doorway of the turbolift. His dead body now fused to the metal plates of the lift doors, in a grim reminder of the dangers of using technology you don’t fully understand.


* * *


Noah leaned back in his chair. "We'll miss you, have no doubt of that. But this is the perfect opportunity, Avanti, and you know it."

The big man was silent for a moment before he nodded. Noah smiled. "Captain Horatio and I both thought that might be your answer. We are due to rezvendous with the Valmont this afternoon."

Blair grinned at the look on Avanti's face. "If you had said no - and Horatio hadn't been able to convince you, either - no harm would have been done. They have a delivery for us, anyway." The engineer's expression grew even more dubious. "All right, all right... we did make sure it was the Valmont who met us instead of another ship, and it was primarily for you, but the delivery is true."

Avanti spoke. "Captain, I will accept, but I have a condition or two."

Blair stared for a moment, then chuckled. "And you claim you aren't command material. Go on."

"Ensign Tier deserves a promotion, and I would ask that he be transferred with me. Also, sir, I would request that Lieutenant Sango also be transferred, as well; I would feel at ease with someone I know to be competant in engineering."

Noah nodded. "Very well. Tier has progressed under you - as you have always seemd to believe that he would. And you were right, the man is a brilliant engineer." He chuckled again. "And I can of course understand the need for chemistry between yourself and your new engineering crew..." the captain allowed his voice to trail off. Noah wasn't entirely sure if domtairans could blush, but he was fairly sure that Avanti was experiencing the equivalent of one.

The two men chatted for a bit longer before Noah smiled and placed a solid gold pip on the desk. "One more thing. Horatio and I argued over this a bit, but as your current commanding officer, I reserved the priviledge. You have an absolutely stellar service record, and that hasn't changed one bit over the past seven months."

In Noah's opinion, this was one of the single most rewarding parts of being a captain. "Computer, record," Blair spoke. "By the power invested in me by the United Federation of Planets, I, Captain Noah Blair, hereby promote Ly Avanti to the rank of Commander."

He reached out and shook the engineer's hand. "You'll probably want to order a red tunic from the replicator before you board your new ship. Congratulations, Avanti."

Thanks to the animated series, kzin are indeed canon (of course, there are those that will dispute this, but most take the kzin as "good" material from TAS).

Yes, the timeline had to be changed a bit - no Angel's Pencil, for instance - but the feel of the kzin is really unchanged. They work well in the Trek universe, I think.

Lyskhala - welcome back! I can't wait to see what you do with Hemlos. You and Eol probably need to get together much like Avrielle and Stu are doing. How has the budding romance between Mac and Chantelle developed?

The kzin is a favorite NPC of mine - I play him. Let's just say that he's found life under a female department head to be... interesting. Read his bio if you want to get into his head a bit.

I have updated Raditz' background to include what we had from STPBeM's bio entry.

Guys, we are very close - I need to fill the CEO spot, and I believe we are then ready to go.

You are correct - it does stand for assistant Chief Medical Officer.

Captain Blair is very hands-off; he's a delegator. If the job is done, and done correctly, he doesn't care how you do it - he trusts the departments to know their specialties better than he ever could.

So the question really is, will he work out with Doctor White?

It's not at all unusual for the counselor to be aCMO. However, it's also not at all unusual for the counselor to be attached to medical, but operate "outside" of it. Whichever way you guys (and your characters) prefer it is fine by me and the captain.

For the time being, it would be trivial to cut through the bindign chain that liks the two (thik similar to handcuffs). Of course, they will still have rings on each hnd tht will need to be removed, but that would give mobility.

With no time to do anything but react, Caise closes the ditance between himself and the would-be murderer with frightening speed. In less time than it takes for Burukt to squeeze the trigger, the emerald beam of the jedi's lightsaber strikes unerringly, knocking the rifle from the soldier's hands in a shower of sparks, and sending him crashing against the far bulkhead.

Even in his crumpled state, the treacherous bothan does not hesitate. In one smooth motion, he draws a blaster pistol and simultaneously keys his commlink. "I am attacked!" he shouts. "Shadoran has allied with the prisoners and a jedi! They seek to take back the ship! Backup needed at once!"

As he regains his feet, he begins firing madly!

Stardate: 2366.10.19
USS Discovery, turbolift 2 - 0935

The hatch hissed open, revealing the interior of the lift. Noah stepped inside to be greeted by the familiar yellow-skinned visage of the engineer, N'doog.

"Mornin', Captaindude!" the catullan exclaimed.

Captain Blair returned the greeting and ordered the lift to the bridge with a grin. The engineer's... unique speech pattern never seemed to fail to invoke that response.

As the decks blurred by, Noah found himself strolling down memory lane once more...

***************

Noah keyed the intercomm. "Blair to engineering. Mister N'doog, please report to my ready room."

=/= Engineering here! =/= The reply came. =/= Right on, Captaindude.. I'm on my way! =/=

The captain shook his head. Protocol had seemed so important in the past, but the engineer coming to visit seemed oblivious to it - and for some reason, it didn't matter one whit.

The Discovery was now three days out of the Gavin system, and Noah had had enough time to go through some of the records. Not long after the call, the door chime sounded. =/= Captaindude! You wanted to see me? =/=

"Come in," Noah replied, and the doorway hissed open, admitting the catuallan.

"Ensign," Blair began, "have a seat. I have been reviewing your service record. It would seem that all of your superior officers have been of the same opinion - you are an excellent engineer. Furthermore, you were invaluable to the mission on Gavin III; without your unique perspective, we might not have put togther the mystery of the molecular changes in our equipment. Quite simply, the mission may well have failed without your contributions."

The engineer seemed quite pleased by the positive words. "Whoa. Like thanks for the praising there Captaindude," came the reply. "Glad to be of service to the service if you catch my drift. You know, they sometimes say you got to think outside the box, but I figure that sometimes you got to leave the room entirely. Dig?"

Noah shook his head slightly in an effort to clear the effect that Bob's speech sometimes had on him. That the engineer was a genius could not be doubted, but sometimes, his comical manner of speaking could be so difficult to follow!

"The praise is well earned, ensign," Blair told him with a smile. "Although I will admit, it can be difficult for the rest of us to understand exactly what you are saying."

"Yeah, I get that a lot," Bob answered. "People need complicated and I like to keep it free and easy. But if I ain’t calling you dude, then I ain’t respectin you. Captaindude."

Noah supressed a chuckle while trying to imagine himself calling a superior officer "Captaindude" - and meaning it as a mark of respect.

"At any rate, Ensign N'doog, I called you here for a reason. I know that you have already been cited for your service on Gavin III, but I think that this would go well with it." With that, Noah produced a small, hollow pip and placed it on the desk in front of the ensign. "Computer, record. By the authority invested in me by the United Federation of Planets, I, Captain Noah Blair, hereby promote Ensign Bt... Btx... Ensign Bob N'doog to Lieutenant, Junior Grade."

If N'doog had taken offense (or even noticed) Noah's difficulty at pronunciation, he completely hid it.

"Hey! Another dot! Righteous! This is totally awesome, Captaindude. Tier’s gonna freak! Just me cruising up that chain of command! Not that I want your job there, Captaindude. Unless they gave me a ship with no ray beamers and photon blaster thingies. But hey!" Bob pinned the pip on his lapel with a smile, "My Mom is gonna love this!"


***************

The lift doors opened, ending Blair's reverie. He stepped onto the bridge, followed by Lieutenant N'doog, who took a now customary place at the engineering station.

Captaindude, reporting for duty! he mused with a grin.

I have most of the NPCs at least stubbed in on the roster. If I don't get some response soon from my multiple recrutiing tendrils, we'll go with NPCs in the open positions and fill them as we can - perhaps through use of "reality editing", if need be.

It doesn't take the TDF overlong to get the engines up and running again, though only at a reduced capacity. As a result, the flight to Tanaab takes close to three hours - a truly enjoyable time for those in the passenger berth. Captain Dulo himself is never brought into the berth, a fact that is not lost on anyone present.

Damanil's commlink crackles to life, though it is the brodcast channel, not anything directed at him. He learns that the Kul Kura has been placed into a holding position just outside of planetary orbit, and that the pssengers will now be offloaded. Indeed, as he listens to the traffic, most of the soldiers are offloaded, as well.

On the other side of the captive crew, Burukt casually stretches. The Bothan "soldier" knows that there may never be a better time; this fool of a human actually believed that he could force his way in on the Dulo bounty!

The red-haired man seems preoccupied with something over the commlink; having grown tired of the inane chatter, Burukt had already muted his. He grins wolfishly and aims his blaster rifle at the man's back. An "accidental" discharge at point blank range cannot miss, and the unfortunate use of deadly force to quell the "rebellion" of the passengers will remove any would-be witnesses.

No eye in the room processes what is about to happen, but one individual "sees" the furry finger close around the rifle's trigger. Caise is seated nearest to the bothan, and has a moment to react before the red-hired soldier is shot in the back.

I have put a "stub" up for Keely and Raditz. If you guys would be so kind, just go in and flesh out your roster etries when you get a chance. If you need help, just ask!

Sure, I don't see why not!

A word of warning - I don't have a copy of Natalie's bio. Captain Backup (aka Eol Fefalas) had copies of many, but not of everything. Keely and Raditz wwere the only PCs affected, but we also lost detail on some pretty fleshed-out NPCs.
