- When word gets out that the Klingon fleet is heading towards the Forcus system, Starfleet Command has dispatched the USS Enterprise-F to reinforce the lines, but when an old lover and old friend of Admiral Kira shows up it may shape the way of the entire war.
The USS Enterprise is on patrol along the Klingon border making sure there are no raids or attacks on Federation colonies.
Captain's log stardate 67892.3, the Enterprise is on patrol along the Klingon border making sure they're not doing anything bold to attack the Federation, along with us is Admiral Kira to evaluate my style of command.
Captain Martin and Admiral Kira are walking through the corridor.
Admiral are you sure I need this I've sent my report on the Klingon attack to HQ Kelly says as she looks at the Admiral.
Captain, I had to go through the same thing when I was a Captain and so did your father says Typhuss as he looks at Kelly.
Yes, sir well what you wanna evaluate my command style? Kelly asked Admiral Kira.
I just want to see how you handle as a new Captain says Typhuss as he looks at Kelly.
Before she could answer the com system activates.
T'Mir to Captain Martin Commander T'Mir says over the com.
Kelly tapped her combadge.
Go ahead T'Mir what's up Captain Martin says as she looks at the Admiral.
Kelly we're getting a signal on a Bajoran channel in the Klingon border Commander T'Mir says over the com.
Both Typhuss and Kelly look at each other.
"We're on our way Commander," Captain Martin says as she looks at Admiral Kira.
Both Captain Martin and Admiral Kira walk onto the bridge and they walk over to the tactical console.
Report Lieutenant Cole Captain Martin says as she looks at the young woman at the tactical station.
She looks at both the Captain and Admiral.
We're receiving a distress call on a Bajoran channel inside the Klingon border their asking for you Admiral Lieutenant Cole says as she looks at both the Admiral and Captain.
Captain Martin looks at the viewer.
Let's see the distress call Captain Martin says as she looks at the viewer.
Lieutenant Cole brings it up on the viewer.
This is General Kori of the IKS Bortas we're under attack by our own forces we request Federation aid, losing power we know who killed Chancellor Martok and we need to speak to Admiral Kira now says General Kori as the channel fizzes out.
As Typhuss is shocked by the channel.
Captain, we need to help General Kori now says Typhuss as he looks at Kelly.
The IKS Bortas is dodging several shots from a Negh'Var class heavy battle cruiser as it approaches Federation space.
On the bridge the crew are shocked by this.
"Red Alert, Shields up!" Captain Martin says as she gives the order.
Lights dimmed and klaxon blares as Lieutenant Cole looks at her console.
Mr. Smith come about to course 349 mark 889 but keep us outside the border Commander Talora says as she walks to her chair as Captain Martin stands behind hers.
"Aye, Commander," Ensign Smith says as he inputs commands into the console.
Open a channel to the Klingon Vor'cha class attack cruiser Captain Martin says as she knew the Negh'var class battle cruiser wouldn't respond.
Lieutenant Cole nods at her.
"Klingon vessel this is Captain Kelly Martin of the Federation Starship USS Enterprise, we're moving to intercept now," Captain Martin says as she looks at the viewer.
Federation vessel I request assistance and asylum Kori says as she's trying to maintain her ship's systems with the help of her daughters and half her crew.
Bortas we're moving in to intercept maintain your course and power Captain Martin says as she's looking at the bridge of the Bortas.
Then the transmission fizzes out as Typhuss turns to Lieutenant Cole for their position.
Lieutenant Cole, what's their position? asked Typhuss as he looks at Lieutenant Cole.
Coordinates one-four-zero by two-zero-five Lieutenant Cole says as she looks at the Ops stations read out.
Federation space Commander Talora says as she looks at Captain Martin.
And Typhuss looks at Captain Martin with a plan that the Enterprise-D pulled to save a scout ship from a Romulan warbird attack.
Captain, extend the shields around the Bortas says Typhuss as he looks at Kelly.
Right, bridge to engineering Mr. Grey extend our shields around the Bortas Captain Martin says as she looks at the viewer.
In Main Engineering Commander Mitchell is heading to the big table.
"Captain there's no way in hell that our shields can do that they were designed not to extend over a non-friendly ship," Commander Mitchell says as he spoke into the com.
On the bridge his rant continued.
And even if they were extended over the Bortas there's no way to know how much punishment they could take before they fail, Commander Mitchell says over the com.
"We have to try Jim," Captain Martin says as she spoke into the com.
Aye, Captain, Commander Mitchell says as the hail ends.
Back in Main Engineering Commander Mitchell is at the main console.
"Engineering to bridge shields extended but they won't be able to take much punishment if that heavy battle cruiser decided to open up on us Commander Mitchell says as he looks at the console.
The Enterprise is next to the Bortas as the Klingon warship is nose to nose with the Flagship.
On the bridge Lieutenant Nelson looks at the tactical console.
Shields have been extended the heavy battle cruiser's disruptors are fully powered and locked onto us Lieutenant Nelson says as she looks at the tactical console.
Captain Martin looks at the viewer.
Klingon vessel you're violated the Neutral Zone if you do not withdraw we'll be forced to use force Kelly says as she sees the heavy battle cruiser cloak.
That was strange no threats or anything Commander T'Mir says as she walks up beside Kelly.
Captain the Bortas is losing life support Lieutenant Cole says as she looks at the ops console's read out of the Klingon vessel.
Bridge to transporter room beam the Bortas crew directly to sickbay security teams report to sickbay on the double Captain Martin says as she goes back to her captain's chair.
Aye, Captain One of the security officers says over the com.
Admiral Kira taps his combadge to the security teams that Kelly ordered to sickbay.
Admiral Kira to security teams, belay that order says Typhuss as he looks at Kelly.
Sir, may I remind you that we're at war with the Klingon Empire Captain Martin says as she looks at Admiral Kira.
We are here to help them and my Klingon family is on board we will not treat the Bortas crew like prisoners, Captain says Typhuss as he looks at Kelly.
At least have Lieutenant Cole post guards in sensitive areas of the ship Captain Martin says as she looks at Admiral Kira.
Fine, do that Captain says Typhuss as he looks at Kelly.
He leaves to go see them.
"T'Mir you've got the conn," Captain Martin says as she gets up from her chair.
Commander T'mIR sits down in the chair.
In Sickbay Doctor T'Kar's medical staff are treating the wounded Klingon officers, when Captain Martin and Admiral Kira walks into the medical bay.
Typhuss its good to see you again Kori says as she looks at Typhuss.
Typhuss nods at her and then introduces Kelly Martin.
This Kelly Martin, Captain of the Enterprise says Typhuss as he looks at Kori.
Kelly walks up to her.
Welcome aboard General I'm afraid I'll have to have you and your crew confined to quarters during your stay aboard my ship Starfleet is concerned that the Empire is trying to get information on our new Odyssey-class cruisers and we wanna make it hard for them Captain Martin says as she looks at Kori.
I will abide by your request Captain General Kori says as she looks at Captain Martin.
Then Typhuss looks at her for answer on what happened.
You said you know who killed Chancellor Martok says Typhuss as he looks at Kori.
Do you remember J'mpok Kori says as she looks at Typhuss.
Yeah, he's a Klingon politican and a member of the High Council, he became the Chancellor of the Klingon Empire in 2393 under questionable circumstances, are you saying he killed Martok says Typhuss as he looks at Kori.
It was a few weeks after our war with the Der'kal he questioned Martok on why we helped the Federation in the war losing several warships and good warriors without the Federation doing anything in return to repay the Empire, and it was in 2393 he slit Martok's throat in the middle of the night claiming it was a Federation agent that did it Kori says as she looks at Typhuss and Kelly.
Kelly looks at Typhuss.
Admiral what if its true and he did kill Martok and blamed the Federation and don't forget the Klingon-Gorn War they got mad at us for not giving them a hand during their conflict with the Gorn Captain Martin says as she looks at Admiral Kira.
Typhuss thinks about it but before he could speak the com activated.
Bridge to Captain Martin Commander Talora says over the com.
Kelly tapped her combadge.
Martin here go ahead Commander Captain Martin says as she looks at Typhuss and Kori.
We're receiving a hail from your father at Earth Spacedock he wants to speak with you and Admiral Kira Commander T'Mir says on the com.
"Transfer it to my ready room we're on our way," Captain Martin says as she spoke to the com.
In her Ready Room the holo-image of her father is standing there.
"Dad you can't be serious returning them to the Council?" Kelly says as she's shocked by what her dad said.
Kelly I understand this isn't what you wanted just a few weeks into your command of the Enterprise but Chancellor J'mpok demanded that they be returned to the Empire Admiral Martin says as he's pacing about.
Then Typhuss speaks.
Hell no, J'mpok is the one who killed Martok says Typhuss as he looks at John on the screen.
Typhuss I know you and Kori have history but we have to think about the Federation we can't offer them anything and J'mpok has threaten to send a fleet of warships to Earth John says on the screen.
I'm not turning them over, J'mpok will kill them we will have to protect them now and we can protect Earth with our fleet says Typhuss as he looks at John on the screen.
John thinks about it but before he speaks Kelly spoke up.
Dad, I've never asked you for anything but I'm asking you right now I'm a Starfleet officer you taught me that when someone asked for asylum I should answer that call, and respect that so I'm asking you father don't force me to give up Kori or her daughters Kelly says as she looks at her father on the screen.
John smiles at his daughter.
Very well I'll try to keep J'mpok off your back we also have a fleet of Federation, Cardassian, and Romulan ships in sector 889 led by General Carter on board the Hammond and I want you guys there to lead the fleet Admiral Martin says on the screen.
Kelly smiles at her father.
Really you want me to command the fleet dad Kelly says as she looks at the screen.
Typhuss is surprised by what John said.
Shouldn't I be leading the fleet I'm the senior officer on board and I have more experience leading a fleet in battle says Typhuss as he looks at John on the screen.
Kelly chimes in.
"Sir the Enterprise is the flagship of the Federation Fleet," Captain Martin says as she looks at Admiral Kira.
He waves off.
"I'll be in sickbay," Admiral Kira says as he looks at them.
Kelly I know your nervous but you got this, Admiral Martin says as he walks up to her.
She nods at her father.
"I'm ready," Captain Martin says as she looks at him.
Meanwhile the Klingon Fleet is gathering.
In the lead ship Chancellor J'mpok sits at his chair.
"DujDaj Hegh!" J'mpok shouts as he gives orders to his crew.
The Klingon fleet leaps into warp on course for Forcas III.
The Enterprise is at high warp heading to Forcas III to meet up with the Federation Fleet.
In the briefing room Captain Martin is briefing the senior staff on the mission.
"A fleet of Klingon Warships are heading to Forcas III our mission is to meet up with a Federation battlegroup and keep them from taking the system from us," Captain Martin says as she looks at them.
Lieutenant Nelson chimes in.
"Our shields are ready and phasers are fully charged and all torpedo launchers are armed and loaded," Lieutenant Nelson says as she looks at them.
Doctor T'Kar chimes in.
"My medical staff is ready for incoming wounded," Doctor T'Kar says as she looks at them.
Then Kori walks into the briefing room.
"General Kori welcome," Captain Martin says as she looks at the General.
"Here's a tactical read out the fleet," General Kori says as she hands it to Captain Martin.
Kelly looks at it.
"Erik take this to Main Engineering make sure that this isn't gonna cripple our systems if we put it into our main computer," Captain Martin says as she looks at him.
Commander Grey nods and leaves the briefing room.
"Alright Kori time to come clean," Captain Martin says as she looks at her.
"The Battlegroup is under the command of Chancellor J'mpok," Kori says as she looks at them.
Talora chimes in.
"The Chancellor himself after Romulus exploded many of my people have attempted to assassinate him but they ended up all dead," Talora says as she looks at them.
Captain Martin is behind her chair.
"We've got five minutes to prep this ship for combat I want it ready by the time we get there dismissed," Captain Martin says as she looks at her senior staff.
The senior staff leaves the briefing room.
The crew preps the Enterprise for combat.
Captain's Personal log, supplemental. We're heading toward Forcas III at maximum warp, the crew has responded with the dedication I've come to expect of them. And like a thousand other commanders on a thousand other battlefields, I wait for the dawn.
The Enterprise drops out of warp and approaches the Federation Battlegroup being led by the USS Roosevelt.
On the bridge of the Enterprise Captain Martin is standing between Ensign Smith and Lieutenant Cole, as Lieutenant Nelson chimes in as she looks up from her console.
"Captain we're being hailed by the Roosevelt its Captain Marcos," Lieutenant Nelson says as she looks at her.
"On screen," Captain Martin says as she looks at the viewer.
On the viewer it shows the bridge of the Galaxy-Class Starship.
Enterprise welcome to the edge of the Klingon border, Captain Marcos says on the viewer.
Admiral Kira is on the bridge standing there in silence.
"Thank you Captain Marcos we'll take charge of the fleet with your permission," Captain Martin says as she looks at the viewer.
Transferring command to you Enterprise, we've not picked up any Klingon Warships so far but that doesn't mean that their out there Roosevelt out Captain Marcos says as the transmission ends.
Captain Martin looks at the viewer.
"All ships this is the Enterprise we're here today to put an end to the Klingon threat, we may of been allies once but this time we're not backing down from the Forcus System maintain yellow alert till further orders Martin out," Captain Martin says as she speaks into the speakers to the entire ship.
Lieutenant Boyle chimes in.
"Nine more ships are heading our way," Lieutenant Boyle says as she looks at her console and then at Captain Martin.
Kelly leans back in the chair.
The Federation battlegroup is in the Forcus system awaiting the arrival of the Klingon battlegroup.
Captain's Log Stardate 65455.4. The battlegroup is awaiting the arrival of the Klingon battlegroup so far we've not detected any other enemy vessels in the system, I'm trying to convince Admiral Kira that I'm ready to take command of a fleet and the ship is the flagship of the fleet leading the fleet is what the Enterprise does best. And as for General Kori and her daughters I'm not sure if this is a good idea to have them here or not but at least their not trying to take over the ship.
In her ready room Kelly is looking over the reports and ship status reports as well when the doors chimed.
"Come," Captain Martin says as she's still looking at the PADDs.
General Kori walks into the ready room with a security guard escorting her in.
"You wanted to see me Captain?" Kori asked as he looks at Captain Martin.
Captain Martin puts the PADDs down.
"General please sit down," Captain Martin says as she looks at her.
Kori sits down.
"I need more intel on this fleet," Captain Martin says as she looks at her.
Kori leans back.
"I've told you all I know Captain," General Kori says as she looks at her.
She slams the PADD down.
"THAT'S NOT GOOD ENOUGH KORI!" Captain Martin shouts at her.
Kori looks at her.
"Captain I can't get much information," Kori says as she looks at her.
Captain Martin to the bridge, Commander T'Mir says over the coms.
Both Captain Martin and General Kori walks onto the bridge.
"Report?" Captain Martin says as she looks at T'Mir.
Talora moves from the Captain's Chair to the XO Chair and Captain Martin sits in her chair.
"Sensors have picked up the Klingon fleet bearing two-one-three mark seventeen," Commander Talora says as she looks at her.
Captain Martin looks at her then at the viewer.
A fleet of Klingon Warships heading towards the Federation Battlegroup.
Ships are having holes blows in them, several Defiant-class ships are whizzing around as the larger ships move in firing phasers at the different Klingon vessels.
On the bridge the crew are hanging onto their stations as ship shakes.
"I'll say this for the Klingons they know how to pilot their ships," Ensign Smith says as he's inputting commands into the helm.
Captain Martin is leaning on the helm.
"So do you stay with him," Lieutenant Cole says as she looks at him.
Ship jolts as sparks erupt from the ceiling.
"Two Klingon Warship bearing two-three-six mark four," Lieutenant Cole says as she looks at her Ops console.
Ship jolts hard as sparks erupt from the ceiling.
"EVASIVE!" Captain Martin says as she looks at Ensign Smith.
Ensign Smith inputs commands into the helm.
Enterprise does a loop and then fires at the Bird of Prey destroying it but the other vessel retreats.
"One Klingon vessel destroyed," Lieutenant Nelson says as she looks at the tactical console.
Kelly pats Smith on the shoulder.
"Nice work Nick," Captain Martin says as she looks at him.
He's not happy.
"Thanks but I lost the Klingon vessel I was chasing," Ensign Smith says as he looks at her.
Kelly pats his shoulder.
"There's plenty more where that came from Ensign," Captain Martin says as she look at him.
