    Dorvan V
    Island Stronghold


    Grakan paced the central promenade of the Island Fortress for perhaps the twentieth time, conspicuously stepping over Krint's carcass once again. He had killed him yesterday, about this time, for what constituted a minimal crime. "When are we leaving," Krint had asked, shortly after Naechk's failed attack on the Federation Vessel. Grakan's actions were swift and unexpected; the blade had penetrated Krint's torso so quickly that it still appeared that he was awaiting a reply before his eyes widened in alarm and he slid to the ground.

    It had to be done, Grakan told himself. "We're not leaving," he had shouted, following it up with a grim, challenging stare at the onlookers around him. Krint was a good man. He didnt deserve being made an example of. But the remaining Nausicaans on the planet were a throbbing artery - the slightest demonstration of weakness would rupture their ranks and cause them to slowly bleed off numbers until all their dreams died. He'd seen it too many times before on ships, when a Federation, Klingon, or Romulan patrol would arrive, and men would slowly recede towards the shuttle bays and escape pods to evade capture. Grakan would not be that weakness. He would not fail. He was too smart for that. Too courageous.

    "The Federation is leaving, not us! Did you all forget why we even came here? The Federation abandoned this world, and their own citizens years ago! To the Cardassians! Do you think they'll come down to fight us hand to hand now for a bunch of miners? The Federation is all show. They came down, made a few gestures, blew up a few vessels, and now it's time to leave. Have you all not learned anything about how the universe works? It's just like on Mother Nausicaa. Leadership regimes come in and go out just as quickly as the winds change, but us...the ancient ones, the brotherhoods, the cliques, the sets, the ones who understand love, respect, and sacrifice, who bleed for each other, who share everything because we had nothing, we are ALWAYS there! They accuse us of being criminals, gangs, thugs, for what? For taking what is ours, what we've been excluded from! They are the criminals! The Klingons subjugate and enslave. The Romulans plot and maneuver. The Federation present themselves as friends of all, only to continue their galactic elitism at the expense of the weak. Their most cherished ideal, the Prime Directive, does nothing but restrict others from vital technology, consolidating it for them. If you dont have warp drive, your starvation, your planet teetering on collapse, is worth nothing but a footnote on a data pad, written by a bored undari in a blue shirt."

    "Is that the universe you want to live in? Is that what you want to happen to you? Or do you want to make your stand here? We are the strong. We are cunning and deadly. We are survivors. Naechk and the other war leaders wasted what they had, and now they and their followers are dead. But you are still here, because you followed me. So trust me now, and I will lead you to victory!

    His words were met with wild cheers and warlike ululations at the time. He believed his speech was convincing, but all the same, he left Krint there to "encourage" those that weren't properly inspired. It bought him perhaps a little time. Now there was just the waiting, and hoping his words proved true.

    USS Ares
    Bridge


    Captain Teriir stood at the front of the bridge, close to the viewscreen observed as the starship Athena moved into an orbital position just ahead of theirs. The Charybdis instantly moved alongside her, the orange glow from its charged phasers array ready for a fight should any threat emerge. Though he didn’t like the thought of pointing weapons at one of their own ships, it was necessary at this time due to the extraordinary situation. He stood motionless as a ping rang at the Communicaiton Officer’s station.

    “Captain, we are being hailed,” the officer said. The Captain at last turned around and moved back to a more suitable position.

    “On screen,” he replied. The screen switched from the Sovereign class starship to its bridge, where a Human Commander stood at the center, a concerned expression on her face. He introduced himself, “This is Captain Teriir of the starship Ares. Welcome to the Dorvan System.”

    “Commander Mayfield,” she answered, shifting uncomfortably, “I’m well aware of who you are; it wasn’t that long ago we spoke over subspace channels about what happened.”

    “Still, introductions are always appreciated for when crews meet for the first time,” Teriir commented as he looked over his shoulder towards the guests he had on the bridge, “This is Gul Enok, Cardassian Liaison to the settlements on Dorvan V, and Wakoro, representative of the Tribal Council.”

    “A pleasure to meet you,” Mayfield almost murmured her response, “I wish our meeting was under better circumstances. We’re a bit anxious to get the two dozen traitors off the ship but we want to do it carefully.”

    “The Cerberus is going to be handling all of the transport duties,” he reassured the Commander, remembering from her record that she was considered to be a bit paranoid, “All we have to do is lower the transport inhibitors on our ships so they can beam everyone off in one go.”

    “That’s good,”she let out a relieved breath and went on a bit of a flustered spiel over what transpired on her ship over the last few days. Teriir simply zoned out and ignored most of it as he’d heard everything in the debrief she’d given over subspace in their joint call the other day. He did this for what must’ve been a full minute before finally making an effort to get her attention, “Um . . . what was that?”

    “I said we can hear more about the events on your ship yesterday another time,” he said, knowing it was his turn to be relieved. This didn’t bring any good feelings though because he was disturbed by one of the details she mentioned, “You mentioned just now that two of the Senior Officers of the Athena were involved in the plot. Can you tell us more about that?”

    “Oh! I thought I informed you about – nevermind, I had it in the report,” Mayfield stopped herself from going on another lengthy monologue, “Our Chief Tactical Officer, Lieutenant Commander U’than Vahn, and the Chief Medical Officer, Lieutenant Filo Abrams, were involved in the plot.”

    “For some reason, I’m not surprised. With a conspiracy like this, Admiral Barron needed a lot of people in her pocket. Lets get going on transporting them to their new homes. We’ll be ready to beam everyone off within the hour. Ares out,” Teriir answered as the channel closed. Sitting down in his chair, he opened up a new one, “Bridge to Commander Biiqs.”

    (( TAG: Biiqs ))

    “The Athena has arrived. Get our special guests ready to be beamed off by the Cerberus as soon as you can,” he instructed the Officer. Ending the conversation with the flick of a switch, he let his concerns over who else was now revealed to be involved in the plot surface, “I know of the now former Commander Vahn. He participated in numerous patrols against piracy in areas of the Federation not affected by the Dominion War. It must’ve been hard for him to be sidelined. That Doctor’s name is familiar somehow.”

    “Family reputation. His Uncle is an official Prosecutor for Starfleet Officers, focusing much of his time in Academy affairs,” Commander R’Turan commented next to him, “I ran into that Doctor once when my ship was undergoing repairs, where he talked proudly about how he was able to stay out of the fighting.”

    “I would’ve thought most people would be using them to get into the fight,” Lieutenant Eleutherio thought aloud, “Earn glory, expand the family reputation . . . stuff like that.”

    “Someone had to remain behind to keep the Federation going while everyone else was fighting a war,” Teriir shrugged at the suggestion, as something about this was gnawing at him now, “I need to look into something while we see our own problematic officers off.”

    “Anything we can help with?” Lieutenant Kenny offered.

    Teriir shook his head as he declined and set his communication speaker to go shipwide so he was sure the people he wanted to reach, “Doctor Cushing and Ensign Han, please report to the Captain’s Office.”

    “I thought Han was a Technician?” R’Turan pointed out before a look of understanding flashed across his features, “I see. Someone gave her a promotion without first informing you.”

    “Although I gave permission to the Doctor to find someone with medical qualifications yesterday, I'd like to know more about his decision,” the Captain said as he went over to the turbolift to his office once more.

    - No, I don't think so.

    Max took the 'lender' arm & attached it to the stump. After a few seconds, it jerked a bit, then Max was able to control it.
    - Thanks Chief! I'm going to sickbay to see if the problem is with the connection implant in the stump.

    Max headed off to sickbay. In a few minutes, he was there.

    Christopher had dismissed the EMH and was working on crew evaluations when he saw Max wander into sickbay looking a little concerned.

    "Hey, Max," Christopher smiled, "what's up?"

    Max said, nervously, "It's a problem with my arm. Rosek has it in Engineering. Can you check the connection implant to see if there's a problem?"

    Now Christopher understood. "Sure, come on over to Biobed 1, it's a little more private. Now, let's get a good look." Christopher conducted a visual exam first, looking for any obvious signs of infection or inflammation. "You had any pain in this arm at all?"

    (( MAX ))

    "Well, that's a good start. Let's see what's going on inside." Christopher pulled over a cellular scanner and positioned Max's arm underneath the delicate sensor array. "Now, this won't hurt a bit."

    (( MAX ))

    Christopher watched the display as pale blue light scanned the remainder of the arm, data scrolling by at speed. After a few moments, the screen displayed an extremely detailed image of Max's implant, including the neural connections. He looked at Max, "You want to see?"

    (( MAX ))

    Christopher turned the display so that Max got a better view, "No infections, no sign of rejection, there's a slight displacement in one of the nerve impulse connections but it shouldn't have caused anything noticeable. Would you like me to correct the placement? I can schedule you in for later today?"

    “For some reason, I’m not surprised. With a conspiracy like this, Admiral Barron needed a lot of people in her pocket. Lets get going on transporting them to their new homes. We’ll be ready to beam everyone off within the hour. Ares out,” Teriir answered as the channel closed. Sitting down in his chair, he opened up a new one, “Bridge to Commander Biiqs.”
    Tarquin, here. Go ahead, Captain.”

    “The Athena has arrived. Get our special guests ready to be beamed off by the Cerberus as soon as you can,” he instructed the Officer.
    “Understood.” The connection closed soon afterward, and Biiqs popped another spiced potato ole in his mouth. When the door to the Ares Security Compound’s briefing room opened suddenly, he almost choked on it, fearing that it would be Chief Tran, policing his breakfast with zero tolerance. But it was only Locke.

    “Good news! The Cerberus is ready to receive our complement of prisoners. I’ve got a bit of time before the briefing, so I’ll take care of the ones here in the Brig. I know that you’ve got your hands with our visitors of the more distinguished type, with the upcoming wedding.

    “Thank you, sir. Speaking of visitors, were you aware that we have a new exchange officer yesterday evening from the Klingon Defense Force?” Locke handed him a PADD.

    “I was not,” Looking at the PADD, he gave a low whistle. “Wow. That’s a big kitty.”

    “I’d be careful not to call him that to his face, sir,” Locke said with a smirk.

    “Or think it in his general vicinity,” replied Biiqs. “Some Ferasans are known to be telepathic. I spent a little time on the Klingon Border after the war, at Starbase 234. Interesting times. It required a lot of cooperation with the KDF to keep that area clear of postwar piracy. He should be a welcome addition to the ship. I think I’ll send him an invite to come and observe the briefing. But first, let me contact Quiir so he can square away the prisoners in the cargo bay.”

    “Hopefully, without any injuries this time,” Locke jested.

    “Oh, I’m sure he’ll do fine. I think he has the makings of a good officer. He practically leapt in front of the enlisted man who was actually responsible before he could confess his fault, accepting the blame for him. I’m sure that he’ll keep everyone’s chest cavities clear of dom-jot cues and get them over to the Cerberus with no problem. Commander Tarquin to Ensign Quiir.”

    “Ensign Quiir here, sir,” the young Ferengi responded.

    “The Cerberus is here for your guests. Please prepare them for immediate transport. Take care to deactivate the local transport inhibitor fields on my command.”

    “Aye, sir. Preparing now.”

    Before opening a channel to the Cerberus, Biiqs took a moment to type a message for Lt. Kurts, Lt. Tess, and Thane to meet him in the Briefing Room in the Security Complex on Deck 4 at 1300 hours.

    A Joint Post by Asteropax, WelshAvenger, & Sylinn

    USS Ares
    Deck 2 – Captain’s Office


    Captain Teriir paused as he entered his office and shot a stern look at the person who’d taken his seat, “I didn’t call for you to be here.”

    “Then why the shipwide request to bring Doctor Cushing and Ms. Han to your Office?” Lieutenant Locke answered as he took his feet off the desk, with a smirk on his face, “You want me here and are just trying to act tough so they don’t know what’s up.”

    “You read into things too much, now get out of the chair,” he ordered while moving to reclaim his seat. Locke abandoned it when he was nearly to the desk. He rolled his eyes as the Security Officer moved over to stand just off to the side of the doorway, a good place to be in order to conceal himself from someone entering the room right away, “There’s no need for hide and seek.”

    “At least until they get here and you let me clue everyone in,” Locke shrugged. Teriir accepted this and turned his attention to a PADD which had changed locations on his desk. Turning it on, he saw the Academy Inquiry into Jei Han’s case was already on it. He left it on the desk as he began skimming through it to note the important details. One of the details made him grunt in a strange satisfaction; the kind which proved a gut feeling correct. At that moment, the door chimed.

    Keeping his eyes on the PADD, he called out, “Enter.”

    Before following Christopher into the Captain’s Ready Room, Jei smoothed out her tunic and tugged at her cuffs. Though it was years behind her, Jei still knew how to present herself in uniform from her cadet days. Satisfied with her uniform, Jei followed Christopher in and stood at attention to the left and slightly behind her mentor and friend.

    Christopher gave Jei's shoulder a reassuring squeeze before turning to address the Captain. "You wanted to see us, Captain?"

    “Take a seat, please,” Teriir said as he looked up at them in greeting and pointed towards the two chairs before his desk. He gazed at Ms. Han for a long moment before speaking to Doctor Cushing, “This is our new Trauma Specialist?”

    Jei knew better than to answer first, with both of her direct superiors here. If they needed additional information, they would ask. Besides, Jei knew that Captain Teriir’s question was directed at Christopher.

    Christopher nodded, "Ensign Han here will be taking over the role and managing the triage centre on Deck 11."

    “I’m sure she’ll fit in well once she’s been given full training but . . . there’s a problem,” Teriir sighed heavily. Picking up the PADD, he read the summary, “Stardate 49969.5 through 50054.3. Starfleet Academy Investigation into Academic Misconduct of Sophomore Cadet Jei Han. Cadet withdrew from Starfleet Academy during the investigation and is declared to be a sign of guilt as all evidence pointed to the confirmation of all charges. Under Starfleet Regulation 35, any person who as been discharged, resigned, or departed from Starfleet due to actions unfitting of an Officer returns to active service is not allowed rank.”

    Christopher couldn't help himself, "That's insane!"

    Jei knew this to be true, hence why she never ever pursued trying to change the past. What was done is done. Sure, it was a defensive mechanism to think that way, but it helped save some of her sanity. She looked at Christopher. “I’m sorry,” Jei simply stated.

    Christopher was dumbfounded, 'What the hell had happened that would mean someone basically sidelining Jei for the rest of her life? "Captain, this isn't right. There must be something we can do?"

    The Captain nodded sympathetically as he lowered the PADD and focused on Han and Cushing, “Section D of this regulation lists the cases in which this can be overruled. One of them is that the Commanding Officer present can do a reevaluation and review of the subject person if requested by their immediate superior. Due to your excellent service aboard the Ares and on other Federation vessels since what is listed in the official record as an expulsion, I am willing to take a second look.”

    Christopher didn't even hesitate, "Thank you, Captain, I hereby request a re-evaluation."

    “I’m not sure. Quite honestly, I was framed but I know that those involved will be very hard to refute due to their status and connections. I rather not trudge up bad memories for something that will be ultimately denied.” admitted Jei.

    Christopher frowned, more determined than ever to offer his support to Jei.

    “In my experience, status and connections mean nothing when you use them unjustly,” Teriir gave Jei an apologetic smile when she mentioned being framed. He looked first to Han and then the Doctor, “There are a few things I want to know more about before offering my full support in this. I’ve read the report but I would like to hear more about your side of the story, Ms. Han. And, Doctor, why did you decide to choose her over, say, one of the Medical Technicians?”

    Christopher had been prepared for this question, "Practicality. Ensign Han has already been through the Academy's medical program and will only need a minimum of training to bring her up to current standards. Even my best Med Tech would need two years full time training to convert to a trauma MD. Couple that with her innate creativity and medical skill, I felt that her talents were too great to waste and that she deserved the chance. In addition, Jei has invaluable experience based on her war record. I have read many notations from the CMO on the HOOD. She has no less than forty-seven away missions, eighteen of them combat missions, as a field medic. No one else aboard has that experience."

    Jei felt uncomfortable as she never liked being praised. It slightly embarrassed her, as she just rather her actions and abilities speak for themselves. Yet, she remained silent, letting Christopher say his piece and the Captain determine the merits of Christopher’s words.

    Christopher continued, "Captain, if Jei were any other person, with her record, she'd be a full Lieutenant by now at the very least. All I'm asking is that we recognise her extraordinary contribution."

    Although Teriir heard Christopher's glowing words, his mind was on Jei's comments. Rather, the lack of comments. Her silence told him she'd completely accepted what happened to her and had given up on any chance of clearing her name. In his mind's eye, she'd been forced to confront a mountain along and now was worried about trying again even with the full support of both immediate peers and superiors. Perhaps it was time to start showing some of their cards to help improve her optimism.

    USS Ares
    Sick Bay


    Attachment 9774

    Christopher had dismissed the EMH and was working on crew evaluations when he saw Max wander into sickbay looking a little concerned.
    "Hey, Max," Christopher smiled, "what's up?"

    Max said, nervously, "It's a problem with my arm. Rosek has it in Engineering. Can you check the connection implant to see if there's a problem?"
    Now Christopher understood. "Sure, come on over to Biobed 1, it's a little more private. Now, let's get a good look." Christopher conducted a visual exam first, looking for any obvious signs of infection or inflammation. "You had any pain in this arm at all?"
    Max thought for a moment, then said,
    - Only a little bit of tingling. I wouldn't call it pain at all, to be honest.

    "Well, that's a good start. Let's see what's going on inside." Christopher pulled over a cellular scanner and positioned Max's arm underneath the delicate sensor array. "Now, this won't hurt a bit."
    Max helped maneuver the stump into position to comfortably position the residual for a scan.
    Christopher watched the display as pale blue light scanned the remainder of the arm, data scrolling by at speed. After a few moments, the screen displayed an extremely detailed image of Max's implant, including the neural connections. He looked at Max, "You want to see?"
    Max just nodded and said,
    - Please.
    Christopher turned the display so that Max got a better view, "No infections, no sign of rejection, there's a slight displacement in one of the nerve impulse connections but it shouldn't have caused anything noticeable. Would you like me to correct the placement? I can schedule you in for later today?"
    Max nodded and said,
    - The XO put me off for the day because of this, so yeah.

    Outside Medical Complex

    After the check up Thane had left the medical complex with the intent to hunt down and meet with the other senior officers as he would encounter them during his own self tour of the Ares. Thane took a certain enjoyment from doing it on his own rather than having an officer escorting him around as it allowed him to set his own pace and with the PADD detailing the layout and overall history of the ship it was an adventure of its own. Call it a secret pleasure of his in this case. As he was heading down the hall towards the Turbolift until a notification came up on the device with a message. Reading it, Thane would check the chrono and head off towards the Lift wherein he'd take it up to Deck Four and to the Security Complex a little early hopefully to meet Biiqs before this briefing occurred.

    Security Complex

    He'd make his way through the main doors and into the complex proper, taking note of the layout and checking his PADD before heading towards Biiq's office and buzzing the door.

    He'd make his way through the main doors and into the complex proper, taking note of the layout and checking his PADD before heading towards Biiq's office and buzzing the door.




    "You've gotten the latest projected model from Meteorology, right? Make sure to keep an eye on your atmospheric sensors and..."

    When the door chimed, Biiqs yelled, "Enter" without looking at the door. He was seated on a corner of the security office desk, speaking to Lt. Kodin Watson. Biiqs had mostly kept out of the office during his short time aboard, ceding it to Locke, the Chief of Security. Yet he found it the most convenient place to go over a few last minute details.

    "As I said, keep a eye on those atmospheric sensors just in case you have to adapt the plan and call an audible. Do you know what an audible is? You were raised in the Martian Colonies, weren't you? It's a term that originates from an ancient Earth contest of strength called..."

    Lt. Watson cleared his throat, looking toward the door. Biiqs followed his eyes over...and then up. Standing quickly to his feet, he saluted in the Klingon fashion.

    "Qapla!" He said, with a decent accent. "I'm afraid my knowledge of the Ferasan tongue is lacking, so that's the most welcoming greeting I can offer, unfortunately. You must be Thane. Biiqs Tarquin, Tactical Chief. I dare say we will probably be working closely together, and I look forward to it. It's a pleasure to make your acquaintance."


    (( TAG: Krajin ))

    "Excellent! Oh, and this is Lt. Kodin Watson, a member of our security team, and one of the best pilots within the department. We were just going over a few things before the briefing. Mainly the weather. The latest ground mission will involve a HALO jump. The wrong windspeed with something like that can cause a lot of havoc. Ever perform any orbital jumps before, maybe during the war? I can tell you, if you ever make a bad jump, you'll become a meteorologist before you ever make another. He chuckled a bit at his own joke, and continued. "But enough about that, we'll go over that soon enough in the briefing. Tell me about yourself. What do you hope to get out of this exchange program?"

Biiqs Tarquin, Tactical Chief. I dare say we will probably be working closely together, and I look forward to it. It's a pleasure to make your acquaintance."

    Thane loomed in the doorway as Biiqs spoke to the other officer in the room about HALO jumps and audibles. He didn't mind the conversation going on as he wasn't concerned with waiting for them to finish. When Biiqs did greet him, Thane would return a solid Klingon Salute in return with a solid Qapla! Which came in tandem with the solid fist connecting his armoured plate. "It's a pleasure to make your acquantance as well. Tactical Chief." He'd give in reply. "It is alright, I am quite unfamiliar with the Bolian tongue."

    (( TAG: Krajin ))
    "HALO jumps? I have done a couple of them during the war, my first was an unfortunate emergency. Learned quick." He'd reply rather honestly. "I am Thane Va'rek of House Bravat, I am a veteran of the Dominion War from the start of Klingon involvement through to the end. Served as part of a mixed unit from the USS Helios for a good portion of it due to damage to my House and its facilities. One of the first non-Klingons to be initiated into the Honour Guard after the War." He'd slip his hands behind his back and adopted a more 'at ease' stance with his ears shifting forward, then one shifting to the side as if listening to something else, elsewhere whilst the majority of his attention was focused on Biiqs and the young human officer. "I have a strong like for the more intense sports out there, if it gives a rush I am likely to try it or like it. I enjoy tinkering with technology on the side with a side project I've brought along to work on during my stay." At the question of what he sought from the Exchange program, a slight grin would curl on the right side of his face with the flash of a couple of well maintained teeth to which he would answer.

    "I am here for the gratuitous amounts of violence commonly associated with the Federation and where its ships boldly go." Certainly a joke on his behalf judging by the way his ear would twitch coupled with that slightly intimidating grin. "I seek to broaden my horizons and have new experiences beyond that which the Empire can provide me as well as broaden my skills. Beyond being one of the better warriors of my house I am a bit of an amateur scientist on the side." He was being quite modest there all things considered and Thane did figure that Biiqs would have access to the Captain's report and his own file. So the Ferasan didn't need to talk up a pride filled tale over himself as his history, scars and honours all spoke of his ability when and where needed.

    "What about you? Tell me about yourself, your department and crew. I am quite curious as well of what you'd expect to see of this Exchange program, expectations of your crew both on and off duty. That kind of thing and.. anything of personal note you'd like to share."
