Prelude

The Redeemer is investigating the disappearance of the IKS Den'ra, a Klingon bird of prey which was reported missing in Sector 041-B two days ago. No sign of wreckage or debris was found.

As the Redeemer pulls into the area, the ship is hailed by an unknown source. No ships or starbases are within hailing distance at the time. When answering the hail, the Redeemer suddenly shakes violently and all ship systems suddenly go dark...

When helm control is restored.. it can not identify where the Redeemer is. Star charts do not match sensor readings, even though the galactic dimensions match the Milky Way galaxy.

Captains log, Stardate 080802: We have been ordered to investigate the disappearance of a Klingon Bird of Prey, the IKS Den'ra in Sector 041-B. They were on a mission for the Klingon High Command.
________________________________________


Upon arriving at Sector 041-B, no debris or any ships were located in the area. The Redeemer was hailed by an unknown source, and when Lt. Quinnell responded, the ship began to shake violently and then everything went dark. An entire systems failure, including life support. Engineer Elim Exonar worked to restore power to life support systems and proceeded to get all main functions online.
________________________________________


Captains log, supplemental: After our sensors came online, we attempted to determine what happened. Our sensors gave us strange readings. They told us we were in the Beta Quadrant of the Milky Way, but the star systems were not all quite the same as our starcharts. I gave the order to analyze the patterns, thinking the star systems had been subjected to regular galactical drift over time.
________________________________________


It was determined that galactic drift had indeed occured and it was estimated that the Redeemer was thrown 600 years into the future to the 29th century. Scans revealed a starship from long range, but there was not enough resolution for a detailed scan. The Redeemer plotted an intercept course to investigate, thinking it may be the bird of prey.

As the Redeemer got closer, however, scans revealed that the ship was a Federation Timeship, but anything further could not be determined because the scans couldnt penetrate the shields.
________________________________________


[14:08] michaels Toshi: ok, getting better readings now
[14:08] michaels Toshi: it's the future ship, however i cant get any readings through it's shields
[14:08] Chase Quinnell: Then dont try to.
[14:08] michaels Toshi: aye sir
[14:08] Chase Quinnell: Temporal Prime Directive applies.
________________________________________


The Redeemer halted course and began looking for any other signs of the Klingon ship. A faint warp trail was detected. The timeship did not follow the Redeemer, most likely aware of what it was doing.

After following the trail, the Redeemer discovered the Klingon ship which was functioning and all lifesigns were accounted for. The Redeemer locked a tractor beam on it and headed back for the temporal anomaly.

The timeship began scanning the Klingon vessel and then launched one of their shuttles(the type seen in Voyager's first encounter with Captain Braxton). The shuttle began disrupting the warp field, forcing the Redeemer to go to a full stop to stay with the Klingon ship and sent text messages to the shuttle, asking what they were doing.
________________________________________


[14:32] Chase Quinnell: Send a text message to the timeship and ask them what they're doing.
[14:32] michaels Toshi: aye sir
[14:33] michaels Toshi taps away at his console
[14:34] Chase Quinnell: Any response?
[14:34] michaels Toshi: it would appear the klingons have been trying to alter the timeline
[14:34] Chase Quinnell: What? How and why?
[14:34] michaels Toshi: they were stealing temporal devices
[14:34] Chase Quinnell: I see.. so what do they plan to do to the Klingons?
[14:35] michaels Toshi: arrest them, and if their charges arent serious enough they'll be released back to their time
[14:35] Chase Quinnell: And if they are?
[14:35] michaels Toshi: then they will be incarserated
[14:36] michaels Toshi: do we let them have the klingons?
[14:36] Chase Quinnell: What kind of incarceration?
[14:36] Chase Quinnell: And do they have any proof that a crime has been committed?
[14:37] michaels Toshi: they'll get treated as they do in our century by the federation
[14:37] Chase Quinnell: Ok, but what kind of proof do they have
[14:37] michaels Toshi: they're the federation...
[14:37] Chase Quinnell: I cant just let Federation allies be taken by... the Federation without permission.
[14:37] michaels Toshi: that's proof enough, right?
[14:38] Chase Quinnell: Ehm... good point. *ponders for a moment* Hail the Klingons.
________________________________________


The next step was to hail the Klingons, in order to find out what they had done.
________________________________________


[14:38] Chase Quinnell: I see you've apparently gotten into some trouble with.. the future. Mind explaining what you've done?
[14:39] Klingon captain: we've done nothing dishonourable! we wish to bring a new era to the klingon empire, and it may even benefit you captain
[14:40] Chase Quinnell: Well, I would like to know what you've done to accomplish this.
[14:41] Klingon captain: we tried to bring new technology to both the federation and the klingons of our time
[14:41] Klingon captain: together, the klingon empire, and the mighty federation could rule the galaxy
[14:41] Chase Quinnell: Don't you understand the potential repercussions this may bring to the timeline?
[14:41] Vinnie Lei whispers to Elim "And my name is santa clause"
[14:41] Chase Quinnell: Our disappearance is already causing disturbances throughout the centuries.
[14:41] Klingon captain: it would be a better timeline for us, why should we care?
[14:42] Chase Quinnell: Because it is not meant to be.
[14:42] Vinnie Lei: Can I address the Klingon for a second, sir?
[14:42] Klingon captain: what is and isnt meant to be is up to the people who have the decisions, and right now, i have the decisions
[14:42] Chase Quinnell looks at Vinnie, "Umm, sure."
[14:43] Vinnie Lei: Captain, you are being dishonourable. You have any idea how many honourable battles you will destroy with an alternate timeline? You'll throw your honour away.
[14:44] Klingon captain: this battle, right here is honourable enough for me
[14:44] Vinnie Lei: Your honour is flawed. You will disnour not only yourself, but also your grandchildrens children.
[14:45] Chase Quinnell: For all we know, your children could have been assimilated without the Redeemer being where it belongs. Anything could happen if you do even the slightest thing to affect the timeline.
[14:45] Klingon captain: I-I see your point, mouse. *transporter sounds are heard as the device is beamed away*
[14:45] Vinnie Lei: Q'aplah, captain.
[14:45] Klingon captain: Q'aplah!
________________________________________


After the situation was resolved, the Klingons returned the stolen devices and the timeship agreed to let them go. The Redeemer and the Klingon bird of prey proceeded to return back to their proper point in time-- the 24th century.

/\= TEMPORAL INVESTIGATIONS REPORT =/\

We interviewed the captains of both vessels involved and also went through their records. The USS Redeemer has been determined as following the Temporal Prime Directive as best as possible, since they refrained from scanning and viewing the timeships and the shuttle.

The Klingon bird of prey, the IKS Den'ra has been charged with Timeline Disruption Class II. They attempted to steal devices from the 29th century to sway the balance of powers in the 24th century, which would devastate the timeline greatly. They returned all devices and purged all information they had gathered, and have been warned about the possible repercussions their actions may have had.

[13:35] michaels Toshi: Sir, we're coming up on the last place the bird of prey was seen
[13:35] Chase Quinnell: Any sign of the missing vessel?
[13:36] michaels Toshi: None, not even a chunk of hull...
[13:36] Chase Quinnell: Any other ships in the area?
[13:36] Vinnie Lei looks up after killing an Imp. "Nothing here yet, sir."
[13:36] michaels Toshi: Ops, can you see any ships in the area?
[13:37] Chase Quinnell: Ops?
[13:37] Chase Quinnell: Any ships in the area?
[13:37] michaels Toshi: Ensign Slade, any ships in the area?
[13:38] CYLONXD Slade: None
[13:39] CYLONXD Slade: We are being hailed, but the source is unknown
[13:39] Chase Quinnell: Onscreen.
[13:39] CYLONXD Slade: AYe
[13:39]  ::The ship begins to shake violently, causing power fluctuations throughout the ship::
[13:40] michaels Toshi: Ive lost helm control!
[13:40] Vinnie Lei: Shields are failing!
[13:40] Elim Exonar: Sir, we're loosing power in all systems
[13:40] michaels Toshi: helm sensors are down
[13:40] Chase Quinnell: Report!
[13:41] Elim Exonar: Even the reactors are offline
[13:39]  ::All lights and consoles start flickering and then go offline::
[13:41] Chase Quinnell stands up clumsily, he seems dizzy.
[13:41] Elim Exonar: switching to emergency power
[13:41] Elim Exonar: erm
[13:41] CYLONXD Slade: Ops down
[13:41] Elim Exonar: it's not coming on
[13:41] Chase Quinnell: Life Support?
[13:41] Elim Exonar: none
[13:41] Elim Exonar: we have 12 hours of air
[13:41] Chase Quinnell: 12 hours of air.. lovely
[13:41] michaels Toshi taps at vinnie's console getting no response from the LCARS
[13:41] Elim Exonar: but only 2 hours of heat
[13:42] Chase Quinnell: Wonderful
[13:42] Vinnie Lei: Great, even my DooM game went offline.
[13:42] Chase Quinnell: Ok, first priority is getting life support operational.
[13:42] Elim Exonar: communications are down
[13:42] Chase Quinnell: Elim, get that engineering console online.
[13:43] Elim Exonar: Mr Toshi, your PADD is working
[13:43] Elim Exonar: I can use that power
[13:43] michaels Toshi: barely, it's being scrambled by some sort of scattering field
[13:43] Elim Exonar: enough to restart the console
[13:43] Vinnie Lei: Sir, I might get minimum tactical online if I wreck some ODN cables to the console.
[13:43] michaels Toshi places his padd on the console
[13:44] Vinnie Lei: Elim, I could use some help here.
[13:44] Elim Exonar: what do you need sir?
[13:44] Chase Quinnell: Make it so.
[13:44] Vinnie Lei: A helping hand. I can't seem to bypass the coaxial bypass inducer.
[13:44] Elim Exonar: good idea
[13:44] michaels Toshi: well, you got my padd, get to work restarting the console
[13:45] Elim Exonar: I can warm it up that way
[13:45] Elim Exonar: hold on
[13:45] Elim Exonar: I need engineering first
[13:45] Elim Exonar: but I can use this cable
[13:45] Elim Exonar grabs this coaxial cable
[13:46] Vinnie Lei nods... "I went through some extra lessons in engineering. Need a hand?"
[13:46] Elim Exonar: yeah, I'm looking for the emergency lights
[13:46] Elim Exonar: there's the panel
[13:46] Elim Exonar: neither do I
[13:47] Vinnie Lei managed to find a flashlight and helps Elim. "This any better?"
[13:47] Elim Exonar: it is, thanks
[13:47] Elim Exonar: I need a script to lie down
[13:48] Elim Exonar: a moment sir, I am just bypassing the secondary fuse relay
[13:48] Chase Quinnell: Is it me, or is it getting a bit chilly in here.
[13:48] Vinnie Lei: Quite logical, since the life support is offline. Sir.
[13:48] Elim Exonar: ouch!
[13:48] Elim Exonar: there's power in that cable
[13:49] Elim Exonar: emergency fusion generators are active
[13:49] Chase Quinnell: You sound like a Vulcan, Vinnie.
[13:49] Elim Exonar rips out the pannel
[13:49] Vinnie Lei: darn mindmelds.
[13:49] Elim Exonar moves a few cables around and rips out a box
[13:49] Elim Exonar: console online now sir
[13:49] Elim Exonar: good
[13:49] Elim Exonar: rerouting all power to life support
[13:50] Elim Exonar: we have air, heat
[13:50] Vinnie Lei: Ok, I think we could use some external sensors and tell where the hell we are or who is nearby.
[13:50] Elim Exonar: hold on sir
[13:50] Chase Quinnell: Indeed, I want to know what is out there.
[13:50] Elim Exonar: I can restart the impulse generator
[13:50] Chase Quinnell: Do it.
[13:50] Elim Exonar: if we use the ODN network
[13:50] Vinnie Lei: Are internal communications online?
[13:50] Elim Exonar: bypass computer core for now
[13:50] michaels Toshi: perhaps we can use the shuttle's sensors, even if they are limited range
[13:50] Elim Exonar: impulse generator is now online
[13:51] Elim Exonar: powering up Engineering
[13:51] Elim Exonar: sending commands to Engineering crew via internal messaging system
[13:51] Elim Exonar: the warp core is intact
[13:51] Chase Quinnell: I want our sensors online ASAP. I hate being in the dark.
[13:52] Elim Exonar: restaring all engines now
[13:52] Elim Exonar: Main power will be back online in a minute sir
[13:52] Vinnie Lei: Grand.
[13:52] Chase Quinnell: Good.
[13:52] michaels Toshi: thank *CENSORED*
[13:52] Elim Exonar: Warp core is coming online now
[13:52] michaels Toshi: thought id have to die with you all
[13:52] Chase Quinnell frowns at Michaels.
[13:52] Elim Exonar: Main power is available sir
[13:53] michaels Toshi checks navigational sensors
[13:53] Vinnie Lei: Sir, external sensors are still offline.
[13:53] Elim Exonar: Are they? hold on
[13:53] Vinnie Lei: I can't get anything from these consoles.
[13:54] michaels Toshi: darn it
[13:54] Elim Exonar: restarting sensors now
[13:54] Elim Exonar: they are working sir
[13:54] michaels Toshi watches as readings flicker onto the helm console
[13:54] Vinnie Lei: You sure? *comes to the engineering console*
[13:54] Elim Exonar: yes, definitely
[13:54] Vinnie Lei: It seems to get a minimal power boost up, but that's all.
[13:55] Elim Exonar: let me undo what I've done to restart the power
[13:55] Chase Quinnell: Ok, what's out there?
[13:55] Elim Exonar: reusing secondary fuse box, red wires connected, funny little processor active
[13:55] Elim Exonar: there
[13:55] Elim Exonar: all systems should be back to normal
[13:56] Elim Exonar: what the
[13:56] Vinnie Lei: Or not...
[13:56] Chase Quinnell: What's the problem?
[13:56] Elim Exonar: do we have sensors readings?
[13:56] Vinnie Lei: Let me check
[13:56] Vinnie Lei: Negative.
[13:56] Elim Exonar: um
[13:57] Elim Exonar: this is intersting
[13:57] Elim Exonar: give me a moment sir, this is not possible
[13:57] Chase Quinnell: I want sensors ASAP!
[13:58] michaels Toshi looks anxiously at the engineering screen [13:58] Elim Exonar: ok, redirecting additional power to sensors
[13:58] Elim Exonar: does that help?
[13:58] Chase Quinnell: Check the sensors, Mr. Vinnie.
[13:58] Elim Exonar: or is it worse?
[13:58] Elim Exonar: it seems that our energy has someone inverted
[13:58] michaels Toshi rubs his forehead in stress
[13:59] Elim Exonar: so... switching Hertz level to something lower
[13:59] Elim Exonar: that should now work
[13:59] Elim Exonar: I am seeing data going through the network
[13:59] Elim Exonar: sensors will now work sir
[13:59] Vinnie Lei: Reroute to the console right from you Elim.
[13:59] Elim Exonar: moving sensor reading to the next console
[14:00] Elim Exonar: there you go
[14:00] Vinnie Lei: Minimum sensors are available.
[14:00] michaels Toshi: I see that we're in the galaxy at least
[14:00] michaels Toshi: but these star systems are....odd
[14:01] Chase Quinnell: What do you mean?
[14:01] Elim Exonar: and the electrons are spinning in the wrong directions
[14:01] Elim Exonar: this was the cause of the power failure
[14:01] michaels Toshi: not in the right places at all, If we didnt have the computers telling me where we are i could swear we're lost
[14:01] Elim Exonar: with your permission sir, I'd like to change shield configuration to adapt
[14:01] Chase Quinnell rubs his chin.
[14:01] Chase Quinnell: Do it Elim.
[14:01] Elim Exonar: Aye sir
[14:02] Elim Exonar: adding anti-protons to the shield
[14:02] Chase Quinnell: Can you identify any familiar planets or starsystems nearby
[14:02] Chase Quinnell: Can you determine what Quadrant we're in?
[14:02] michaels Toshi: well, we have all the same star systems, just all in different places
[14:02] michaels Toshi: we should be somewhere in the beta quadrant
[14:02] Elim Exonar: anti-protons in where we're from will spin in the same direction as these electrons thus negating them
[14:03] Chase Quinnell: Hmm.. strange.
[14:03] Chase Quinnell: Wait..
[14:03] Chase Quinnell: Run an analysis of the arrangement of these planets.
[14:04] Chase Quinnell: Compare them to the galactic drift patterns and see if you can find a match. I get the feeling we're either far in the past or far in the future.
[14:04] michaels Toshi begins to tap at the panel, and analyses the drift patterns
[14:04] michaels Toshi: you're right sir, we're in the future
[14:04] Elim Exonar: sir, if we add a forced Neutrino Inverter to the ship power system, we won't have the same problem until we go back home
[14:04] Chase Quinnell: How far into the future?
[14:05] michaels Toshi: well, it would seem the 29th century
[14:05] Chase Quinnell nods, "Make it so, Elim"
[14:05] Vinnie Lei: Oh great. Now we'll get Temporal Internal affairs on our asses.
[14:05] Chase Quinnell: Hmm.. 29th century.
[14:05] michaels Toshi: definately mr mouse
[14:05] Chase Quinnell: There should be a Federation existing in this time. Voyager encountered a timeship from this century.
[14:05] Chase Quinnell: Indeed.. Temporal Internal Affairs.. not going to be fun.
[14:06] michaels Toshi: well, I do see a vessel
[14:06] Vinnie Lei: Identify?
[14:06] michaels Toshi: pretty far away
[14:06] michaels Toshi: seems federation
[14:06] michaels Toshi: getting nothing more
[14:06] Chase Quinnell: Stations everyone. Lets plot an intercept course.
[14:06] michaels Toshi: maybe when we get better sensor resolution
[14:06] michaels Toshi: aye sir
[14:06] michaels Toshi: intercept course plotted, engaging
[14:06] Chase Quinnell: Helm, plot a course to intercept that vessel, best possible speed.
[14:07] Chase Quinnell: Engage.
[14:08] michaels Toshi: ok, getting better readings now
[14:08] michaels Toshi: it's the future ship, however i cant get any readings through it's shields
[14:08] Chase Quinnell: Then dont try to.
[14:08] michaels Toshi: aye sir
[14:08] Chase Quinnell: Temporal Prime Directive applies.
[14:09] michaels Toshi: I understand captain
[14:09] Elim Exonar: Sir
[14:09] Chase Quinnell: Send them a message through text only, inform them we've somehow been thrown into this cent-- yes, elim?
[14:09] Elim Exonar: space doesn't make sense
[14:09] Elim Exonar: maybe the could tell us what happened here
[14:09] Chase Quinnell: Explain.
[14:09] CYLONXD Slade: these shields are amazinng *takes Notes*
[14:09] Elim Exonar: well, the power drain we experienced wasn't a drain
[14:09] Chase Quinnell glares at Cylon.
[14:09] michaels Toshi: No, temporal prim directive ensign
[14:09] Elim Exonar: and to open a rift in time... that requires a huge explosion
[14:10] michaels Toshi overides Cylon's console deleting all his readings
[14:10] Vinnie Lei: Our sensors didn't detect any explosion as such?
[14:10] Elim Exonar: well we would have been in the wrong century
[14:10] Elim Exonar: the explosion would have been here
[14:10] Elim Exonar: not back then
[14:10] Chase Quinnell: Then... you're saying a battle took place?
[14:10] michaels Toshi: lucky us...
[14:11] Vinnie Lei: Gods, I hate temporal mechanics.
[14:11] Elim Exonar: probably
[14:11] Chase Quinnell: Then how'd the BOP go missing?
[14:11] Elim Exonar: but I have no idea what kind of weapons they used
[14:11] Chase Quinnell: They were lost 2 days ago.. or rather.. 2 days and 400 years ago
[14:11] Elim Exonar: maybe it's stuck like us
[14:11] Elim Exonar: and around here somewhere
[14:11] michaels Toshi: if the weapon can affect through from the 29th century, maybe it spans throughout time
[14:12] michaels Toshi: like it would last for a certain period, pulling in ships?
[14:12] Elim Exonar: but then again... a bunch of confused Klingons in the wrong century... I don't know what they'd do
[14:12] Chase Quinnell: Indeed. We must find them.
[14:12] michaels Toshi: get themselves killed of course
[14:12] Chase Quinnell: They may not be so tied to the Temporal Prime Directive as we are.
[14:12] Vinnie Lei: Elim, see if you can boost the sensors and detect for Klingon warptrails.
[14:12] Chase Quinnell: Helm, full stop.
[14:12] michaels Toshi: aye sir
[14:12] Elim Exonar: good idea
[14:12] michaels Toshi: all momentum stopped
[14:13] Chase Quinnell: Has that future ship seen us?
[14:13] michaels Toshi: yes
[14:13] michaels Toshi: of course they have
[14:13] Chase Quinnell: darn.
[14:13] Elim Exonar: inputing Klingon power signature and warp signature into main sensors
[14:13] Chase Quinnell: Is it a Timeship?
[14:13] michaels Toshi: it would appear so
[14:13] Chase Quinnell: *CENSORED*
[14:13] Chase Quinnell: Lovely, now temporal investigations will definately want our heads.
[14:13] michaels Toshi begins to sweat thinking of the consequences
[14:14] Chase Quinnell: Make sure no one from our ship scans the futureship or attempts to look at it.
[14:14] michaels Toshi: they're wary of us
[14:14] michaels Toshi: they're scanning us
[14:14] Elim Exonar: turning off main viewer
[14:14] Chase Quinnell: Set all exterior ship windows to opaque mode.
[14:14] michaels Toshi: by now they must realize we're a relic
[14:14] Elim Exonar: aye sir
[14:14] Chase Quinnell: Indeed.
[14:15] Chase Quinnell begins to get worried.
[14:15] michaels Toshi: at least they havent powered weapons
[14:15] Chase Quinnell: Have we located the Klingon trail?
[14:15] Chase Quinnell: Well, Michaels, they ARE a Federation timeship.
[14:15] Vinnie Lei: I detect a faint trail in long range sensors... might be them.
[14:15] michaels Toshi: yes, but if we contaminate their timeline, they get pretty pissed
[14:15] Chase Quinnell: Most likely.
[14:15] michaels Toshi: have you read what one of their shuttles could do to voyager?
[14:16] Chase Quinnell: The ripples of our disappearance are probably ripping through the years as we speak.
[14:16] michaels Toshi: of course i shouldnt have seen that document *looks innocent*
[14:16] Chase Quinnell: Oh yes.. I do, Michaels.
[14:16] Chase Quinnell sighs.
[14:16] Chase Quinnell: And pretty soon, our disappearance will begin to affect this century
[14:16] Chase Quinnell: We must hurry.
[14:16] Elim Exonar: Sir, the Klingon ship appears to be drifting
[14:16] michaels Toshi: maybe we could ask the timeship to help us find the klingons and return us?
[14:17] Chase Quinnell: Set course to follow the trail of that Klingon BOP, maximum warp. Keep an eye on our future friends.
[14:17] michaels Toshi: oh, no need then
[14:17] Elim Exonar: that's why we couldn't get a clear reading
[14:17] michaels Toshi: aye sir
[14:17] michaels Toshi: engaging
[14:17] Chase Quinnell: Are they pursueing?
[14:17] Elim Exonar: I don't think they could compensate for the power failure
[14:17] michaels Toshi: No, they are stopping to scan is intensly though
[14:17] Vinnie Lei: Better be careful, sir. You don't want to poke confused Klingons.
[14:17] Chase Quinnell: Then time *cringes* is of utmost importance.
[14:17] Chase Quinnell: Their lifesupport may be offline.
[14:18] Chase Quinnell: And if they've been drifting for 2 days.. they're probably dead.
[14:18] Elim Exonar: unless they haven't been here for 2 days
[14:18] Vinnie Lei: Then we'd better destroy the ship and get back.
[14:19] Chase Quinnell: ETA to the Klingon ship?
[14:19] Chase Quinnell: And is the timeship following?
[14:19] michaels Toshi: 2 minutes sir
[14:19] Vinnie Lei: It doesn't appear so.
[14:20] Chase Quinnell nods.
[14:20] Chase Quinnell: They might know what we intend to do.
[14:20] Vinnie Lei: They'll probably tried to stay out of the way, and not giving us any information.
[14:20] michaels Toshi: well, they're taking a lot of scans
[14:20] michaels Toshi: we're dropping out of warp
[14:21] Chase Quinnell: Status of the bird of prey?
[14:21] Chase Quinnell: Scan it.
[14:21] Chase Quinnell: Any lifesigns?
[14:21] michaels Toshi: Ops, can you analyse the scans for me?
[14:22] michaels Toshi throws his padd at Slade's head
[14:22] CYLONXD Slade: its is hard to tell
[14:23] CYLONXD Slade: i see......non dead people
[14:23] Chase Quinnell: ...Right. Ok, can we beam them out of there?
[14:23] Elim Exonar: it's as I suspected sir, the temporal anomaly is fixed on this side of the timestream
[14:24] Elim Exonar: so the Klingons have been here the same amount of time as we have
[14:24] michaels Toshi looks puzzled at the word timestream
[14:24] Chase Quinnell: But what about the other side?
[14:24] CYLONXD Slade: Sure we can but......
[14:24] Elim Exonar: we arrived at the same time
[14:24] Vinnie Lei: Well, that's a relief.
[14:24] Elim Exonar: no idea
[14:25] Elim Exonar: We can use the tractor beam to bring them home sir
[14:26] Chase Quinnell: Engage tractor beam..
[14:26] Chase Quinnell: We're going back home.
[14:26] Chase Quinnell: Elim, will we end up back on the day we left?
[14:26] Elim Exonar: plotting a course to make that happen sir
[14:27] Elim Exonar: if we enter the same point we exited, it should, in theory work
[14:27] Chase Quinnell: Prepare tractor beam for warp speed.
[14:27] Elim Exonar: tractor beam ready
[14:27] Chase Quinnell: Helm, engage at highest tractor speed.
[14:27] michaels Toshi: aye sir
[14:28] michaels Toshi: engaged
[14:28] Elim Exonar: matching shield configuration to surround the Klingon ship
[14:28] michaels Toshi: the timeship seems to be scanning the klingon ship now...
[14:28]  ::The ship begins to shake slightly::
[14:28] Elim Exonar: adjusting shield
[14:28] michaels Toshi: im detecting a shuttle launch from the timeship
[14:29]  ::The ship begins to shake a little more then previous::
[14:29] Vinnie Lei: Oh shit...
[14:29] Chase Quinnell: Shuttle?
[14:29] Chase Quinnell: I have a bad feeling about this..
[14:29] michaels Toshi: yes, like the one we spoke of earlier...
[14:29] Elim Exonar: sending coordinates for reentry to Helm
[14:30] Chase Quinnell: A little faster, helm
[14:30] michaels Toshi: aye sir, increasing to maximum
[14:30] Elim Exonar: opening matter / antimatter flow to 120%
[14:30] michaels Toshi feels the ship strain
[14:30] Elim Exonar: we can attain warp 9.93
[14:31] Elim Exonar: I'm that good
[14:31] michaels Toshi looks as console spark and explode
[14:31] Chase Quinnell: Do it.
[14:31] Vinnie Lei: Better be carefull, hull integrity is down to 89%
[14:32] Elim Exonar: we should be ok to continue
[14:32] michaels Toshi: the shuttle is disrupting out warp field
[14:32] Elim Exonar: then again...
[14:32] michaels Toshi: we're loosing the klingon ship
[14:32] Elim Exonar: redirecting power to tractor emitters
[14:32] michaels Toshi: it's falling out of our warp field
[14:32] Chase Quinnell: Full stop.
[14:32] michaels Toshi: aye sir
[14:32] michaels Toshi: disengaging warp drive
[14:32] Chase Quinnell: Send a text message to the timeship and ask them what they're doing.
[14:32] michaels Toshi: aye sir
[14:33] michaels Toshi taps away at his console
[14:34] Chase Quinnell: Any response?
[14:34] michaels Toshi: it would appear the klingons have been trying to alter the timeline [14:34] Chase Quinnell: What? How and why?
[14:34] michaels Toshi: they were stealing temporal devices
[14:34] Chase Quinnell: I see.. so what do they plan to do to the Klingons?
[14:35] michaels Toshi: arrest them, and if their charges arent serious enough they'll be released back to their time
[14:35] Chase Quinnell: And if they are?
[14:35] michaels Toshi: then they will be incarserated
[14:35] Chase Quinnell: I see.
[14:36] michaels Toshi: do we let them have the klingons?
[14:36] Chase Quinnell: What kind of incarceration?
[14:36] Chase Quinnell: And do they have any proof that a crime has been committed?
[14:37] michaels Toshi: they'll get treated as they do in our century by the federation
[14:37] Chase Quinnell: Ok, but what kind of proof do they have
[14:37] michaels Toshi: they're the federation...
[14:37] Vinnie Lei: Plush walls and fluffy teddybears oO.. noooooo.,
[14:37] Chase Quinnell: I cant just let Federation allies be taken by... the Federation without permission.
[14:37] michaels Toshi: that's proof enough, right?
[14:38] Chase Quinnell: Ehm... good point. *ponders for a moment* Hail the Klingons.
[14:38] michaels Toshi: aye sir
[14:38] michaels Toshi: oncreen
[14:38] Chase Quinnell: I see you've apparently gotten into some trouble with.. the future. Mind explaining what you've done?
[14:39] Klingon captain: we've done nothing dishonourable! we wish to bring a new era to the klingon empire, and it may even benefit you captain
[14:40] Chase Quinnell: Well, I would like to know what you've done to accomplish this. [14:41] Vinnie Lei: >:O RAWR!
[14:41] Klingon captain: we tried to bring new technology to both the federation and the klingons of our time
[14:41] Klingon captain: together, the klingon empire, and the mighty federation could rule the galaxy
[14:41] Chase Quinnell: Don't you understand the potential repercussions this may bring to the timeline?
[14:41] Vinnie Lei whispers to Elim "And my name is santa clause"
[14:41] Chase Quinnell: Our dissappearance is already causing disturbances throughout the centuries.
[14:41] michaels Toshi: it would be a better timeline for us, why should we care?
[14:42] Chase Quinnell: Because it is not meant to be.
[14:42] Vinnie Lei: Can I address the Klingon for a second, sir?
[14:42] Klingon captain: what is and isnt meant to be is up to the people who have the decisions, and right now, i have the decisions
[14:42] Chase Quinnell looks at Vinnie, "Umm, sure."
[14:43] Vinnie Lei: Captain, you are being dishonourable. You have any idea how many honourable battles you will destroy with an alternate timeline? You'll throw your honour away.
[14:44] Klingon captain: this battle, right here is honourable enough for me
[14:44] Vinnie Lei: Your honour is flawed. You will disnour not only yourself, but also your grandchildrens children.
[14:45] Chase Quinnell: For all we know, your children could have been assimilated without the Redeemer being where it belongs. Anything could happen if you do even the slightest thing to affect the timeline.
[14:45] Klingon captain: I-I see your point, mouse. *transporter sounds are heard as the device is beamed away*
[14:45] Vinnie Lei: Q'aplah, captain.
[14:45] Klingon captain: Q'aplah!
[14:45] michaels Toshi: ::transmission ends::
[14:45] Chase Quinnell: Has the timeship released the Klingons?
[14:46] michaels Toshi: looks like they are
[14:46] Chase Quinnell: Then lets get back to our Time.
[14:46] michaels Toshi: whadoya know, the klingons DO have some self preservation
[14:48] Elim Exonar: sir, the time anomaly is beginning to close
[14:49] Chase Quinnell: Set course for the 24th century
[14:49] Chase Quinnell: Engage.
[14:49] michaels Toshi: aye sir
[14:49]  ::the redeemer and the klingon ship hit the anomaly at speed sending them back through the timestream::
[14:49]  ::The ship rocks and shakes and rolls and power goes out.. again::
[14:50] Elim Exonar does what he did last time to bring back power
[14:50] michaels Toshi looks at the lifeless bridge and sighs
[14:50] Chase Quinnell: Good work.. are we back in the 24th century?
[14:51] Elim Exonar: aye sir
[14:51]  ::The power is restored::
[14:51] michaels Toshi: well, th stars are back in the right places
[14:51] Elim Exonar: we are
[14:51] michaels Toshi: and there's a klingon ship off the starboard bow
[14:52] Elim Exonar: We're back safely sir and power is stable
[14:52] Chase Quinnell: Good. I hope these klingons learned their lesson.
