    Teller:  I'm given to understand your birthday is coming up, Mr. Ukinix.  I realize this is a bit abrupt but as our time here is brief, I thought we might work a bit of celebrating into our day.  =/\= Teller to Reade.  Energize. =/\= 

    In front of the group materialised Scotty, along with a gravsled that had something built on top of it, in the shape of a Starfleet delta.  Wil’s mouth began turning into a smile when he saw beer taps, stools, and pedals.  The lights around the bottom of the grav sled glowed. The polished metallic bar was topped off with several umbrellas above them.  In the middle of the Starfleet delta was another stool, with a console in front of it – obviously for the driver of the vehicle.

    Teller:  Happy Birthday, Knackers.  Mr. Reade and I thought you might get bored, tired and dehydrated from walking around this big space station of yours and applied the fine art of engineering to the problem.  Frankly, I think it's some of my finest work.  So, who wants to hop on and float this thing down the Grand Mezzanine with me?  The beer's cold and the pedaling is optional.   

    Wil’s jaw dropped so much that it was almost on the floor. His expression turned into a huge wide-mouthed smile, so wide that a Galaxy class starship could have coasted into it.

    Ukinix:  You built me… a hoverpub!… for my birthday?!


    With a strut, Mr Teller walked over and stepped up onto the base of the vehicle.  He seemed to admire his and Scotty’s handywork, before turning to look back at Wil. 


    Teller:  You'll also be happy to know it has been fitted with a rather robust sound system.  You'll be able to share your love of ancient terran geology music with a whole new quadrant.  Mr. Reade, what else did we cram into this thing?  Oh and can I pour anyone a beer?  Because I'm suddenly finding myself quite parched.

    Wil couldn’t find the words to express his surprise, gratitude, and delight.  Instead, he simply offered Ensign Reade a hand to shake, before pulling him closer and slapping him on his back, to say “thank you”.  After that, he raced over to Geoff who was sitting on a stool, pouring beer into empty glasses from one of the taps connected to the Starfleet delta shaped bar.  Wil wrapped his arms around the little man, and squeezed him tight with a hug. 


    Ukinix: You bloody legends.  Thank you.  This is the best birthday present ever.  Even more so given I didn’t even realise my birthday is coming up!

    Good Work Mr.Teller. I think Wil was super happy. @Geoffrey Teller @Wil Ukinix

  2. Someone was speaking. Lilith could hear, but her mind was barely registering it. Lilith was angry at herself. Danger meant she should be at the forefront and defend, instead she found herself unable to move. She chastised herself for that.

    Wong: ::To Thorne:: Hey. It’s me. Lieutenant JG Wong. I’m here now. Let’s get you patched up. ::Glancing up at Reade:: How has she been doing?

    Thorne: ::weakly:: I got a boo boo.


    Just a small snippet. But this made laugh.

    Thorne: That was close!

    Then she quickly ducked and rolled away as phaser fire started coming in her direction. Lilith tumbled down a small incline and tripped and a part of her armor tore off. Lilith paused for a moment and looked at her armor and squinted. That should not have happened in the holodeck and she wondered if the safeties were activated.

    Thorne: ::almost whispering as she looked to be certain she was not being ambushed:: Computer. Safety information. Are safeties on?

    Lilith waited for what seemed like a long time, but there was no computer response. Lilith's heart began to race, and she spoke louder.

    Thorne: Computer re-engage safeties! Exit! Transport us out of here!

    Still no response and Lilith then felt a blast of phaser that burned right through her armor from behind and she went down forward in a heap. Lilith looked up in pain and yelled.

    Thorne: Computer, end...!

    Lilith felt a boot on her back, then a weapon pressed against her head. An unfamiliar voice spoke.

    Voice: Now, what do we have here.



    Now my holo deck vacay is turning into something not fun. Good twist on the plot Lilith! @Tracey

    Scotty was getting ready for what was a big day. He was being re-assigned as Captain to the USS Artemis, a newly retrofitted Sovereign-class vessel. He was to meet his new crew today at Starbase 20 as he was walking towards the XO's room on the base. He arrived outside the XO's cabin. He did a gentle knock on the door. "John! You ready to go to the briefing?" said Scotty. John replied, "Yes! One second." The door opened, and John appeared.

    They both walked to the briefing room, where they met the commanding officer of Starbase 20. They were going to go over some briefing items before they were allowed on the ship.

    "Welcome, All!" said the CO. Scotty and John both took their seats. After a few minutes of introductions, the discussion went into operations. The first thing that was brought up in the debate on how the ship design was changed to reflect the issues of the previous Sovereign-class vessels. These changes were mainly intended to overcome the problems that were present during the visit to Telstrus 3. Scotty remembers this well as he was the XO at the time on the USS Galway. Scotty was asked by the CO of Starbase 20 to provide a brief response to what happened on Telstrus 3.

    Scotty started his flashback into why he hated that mission so much.

    The crew of the USS Galway was on a routine patrol mission when they received a distress signal coming from Telstrus 3. The Captain musted an away team from the Galway that would beam down to assist. The away party consisted of me, an engineer officer, a science officer, and one security officer. I oversaw the away team. After gathering our gear, we beamed down to the surface.

    The first thing that we noticed was a heavy dust storm on the planet's surface. This severely impeded our vision and made our tricorter useless due to the dust in the air. The team started walking towards the colony. The first thing that we noticed was the colony looked like it had been abandoned for a long time.

    "Phasers on the alert team!" said Scotty. He was nervous that they might be walking into a trap as they walked into the colony. Scotty decided to radio the Galway bridge give them an update.

    "Bridge, Scotty here do you Copy," said Scotty.

    "Loud and clear, Scotty, what do you have?" replied the bridge.

    "The colony seems abandoned; looks like no one has been here for years," said Scotty.

    "Copy Scotty, look around, but preceded with… "replied the Galway bridge.

    "Bridge, message was choppy, say again," said Scotty.

    Suddenly, a bunch of people started firing their phasers at us.

    "Take cover! Fire back!" said Scotty.

    The teams started to shoot the intruders. They managed to subdue all the intruders. One of the security officers took a phaser shot but was expected to survive.

    "Bridge! What the hell, we were shot at!" replied Scotty.

    "Beam us back up!" said Scotty.

    "Beaming up now!" replied the transporter team.

    As we resurfaced on the vessel, we noticed that the ship was on a red alert. I asked what was going on.

    "What's happening!" said Scotty.

    "Were under attack! They were hiding in the clouds of Telstrus 3." Replied the transport officer.

    Scotty ran immediately to the bridge. He walked into the bridge and noticed there was a bulkhead breach on the bridge. Luckily the forcefield had engaged in containing the breach.  It seemed the Captain got injured from the debris field.

    "Scotty! I am transferring the conn to you." Replied the Captain.

    "Copy! Commander, I will get us out of here," replied Scotty.

    Scotty asked the helm to warp us out. But the damage to the ship was so severe that it knocked out the warp drive.

    "How've shields?" asked Scotty.

    "10%, sir. Failure eminent," replied the tactical officer.

    "Copy! Fire all we have got into that ship; I want it destroyed," replied Scotty.

    After a few moments of tense fighting, the team was able to destroy the enemy vessel.

    "Vessel destroyed!" replied the tactical officer.

    "Good! Damage report please," replied Scotty.

    "Major hull damage. Breaches on Decks 1,6,7 and 10. We have no warp drive/impulse engines now as well. Engineering is working on getting the warp drive back online. 15 casualties." Replied the tactical officer.

    Scotty felt his heart sink, they were lured into a trap, and it almost got the ship destroyed.  

    After a few hours passed, engineering was able to get the warp drive online. The only downside is we could only go max Warp 3 due to the damage done to the warp core.

    "Starbase 20, this is Scotty, acting captain of the USS Galway. We have sustained major damage from a rouge vessel in orbit near Telstrus 3. We are limping our way back to base. Request immediate medical and engineering teams on hand." Stated Scotty.

    "Copy! Glad you guys were able to make it out!" replied Starbase 20.

    Scotty was relieved that they made it back, but the Sovereign-class starships needed serious upgrades, he stated.

  5. I woke up in the morning at the academy, knowing it was the day I was leaving for Starbase 118. After taking an quick shower and shaving, I went down to the departures section of Starfleet Academy, where my parents were going to meet me before I left. After saying my goodbyes to my parents on Earth, I embarked the shuttle to leave for Starbase 118. My dad was proud as I was continuing the family line of joining Starfleet, My mom was a bit scared as she would not see me again for a many years. Me and brother did out signature handshake and told him that I always will keep in contact with him. 

    After some time passed on the shuttle, I noticed that we were starting to slow down. As the shuttle started to slow down, an PA announcement came over the shuttle intercom.

    "Welcome to Starbase 118 cadets. We are next in line to dock, please start to gather your belongings and follow the instructions of the crew on board. Be Bold, Be Brave, this is Starfleet. " 

    I thought to myself, finally have 4 years at the academy, I have finally joined Starfleet. As the shuttle completed its docking procedure, I gathered my things and walked off the shuttle craft into the Starbase 118. The first thing I noticed was how busy the station was. People walking everywhere talking. All the people were in Starfleet uniforms. I still had few hours before my training started. I decided lets do some exploring to kill the time. The station was so big, I had no clue on which direction to go. I saw an passerby in uniform and I asked him 

    "Excuse me, do you know where the lounge is? " I asked

    "Please use the visitor console over on the left. That will provide you with a map. Welcome to Starbase 118 Cadet." said the officer 

    "Thanks" I replied back. 

    I walked over to the visitor console, and chose the map. I selected my destination as "Lounge". The computer responded, follow the green trail markings on the floor, and take the turbolift to deck 12. I proceed to follow green trail markings. I finally got to the turbolift, where I saw a bunch of people waiting. I saw someone to my left, I thought I introduce myself. 


    "Hello, I am Cadet Scotty." I said 

    "Hello, I am Cadet Nirval, I am posted in Operations. What is your assignment?" he replied 

    "I am in engineering, I am following my dad's footsteps." I replied 

    "Oh, that is really cool. What ship did your dad serve on?" he replied 

    "He was stationed on the USS Columbia, as the Chief Engineer", he retired 10 years ago from Starfleet. I am hoping one day I can become an Chief Engineer on a vessel."

    "You look like a person that can." he replied enthusiastically. 

    I just nodded back to him, as we walked into the turbolift. I thought to myself, I have some big shoes to fill, If I want to be like my dad. We continued to chat in the lounge, about how we decided to join Starfleet. After a hour or two of us all chatting, we decided to explore the station a bit more.  We decided to go on a tour of the station. Finally the time began to begin out cadet training, we said our goodbyes and met on the holodeck.
