Mission: Not Where I Belong
Location: Chuck Norris, Engineering and Bridge
Timeline: Current

*The crew in the xo's department were buzzing around with leap in their step. They all knew that we were likely in for a fight. It was a little past a day now that they had left the Starbase. The sensor logs had been reviewed, recorded, and known. Reports had been sent that the other 5 ships were on route. 8 to 12 hours away at max warp. Sensors now showed we were arriving in the quadrant we were sent to. Debris was scattered everywhere, so much so that we had to drop out of warp to get past it. Scans were going full spread.*

"Team, this is the time for us to shine. You have been wonderful at keeping this ship running in perfect order with me. This is not a good day to die. But if we must, let it be with glory."

*Having been working with a Klingon now for the past weeks they started to get into a his speeches with a motivation seen for those going into battle.*

"I'll be on the bridge if anyone needs me "

*Nods, farewells, and sounds of affirmation were heard as the doors closed*


*The hum of the turbo lift was almost silent, yet noticeable in this silent moment as Ech'am was being lifted towards the bridge.*


"Captain Winters. This debris is comprised of hull fragments from several ships, I've read Talaxian, Pakled, Romulan, Klingon, Federation, and Borg. I have been able to determine this belt wall extends beyond the range of all the sensors. There are asteroids from places unknown to us. I have sent telemetry reading of booby-traps found by our sensors. I'd advise yellow alert and high alert from this point on."

Aurther was standing behind Lt. O’Connelly at the time the G'ginloss had entered the bridge. He had listened to the report his First Officer without looking at him. He took in all the information but had kept verifying the findings that the Chief Engineer had with some of the scans that his science officer had been able to able to piece together. However by the time the Commander has finished his report, Winters had turned towards him and took the PADD from his hand and rotated it through his hands and he thought about the information that he saw from both sources, and how it corroborated with each other.

"Alright..." he made his way back to the command chair, pointing to his chief tactical officer as he did, "Commander Pibb, set condition yellow throughout the ship."

"Aye sir, yellow alert."

"Good work Commander, I was just reviewing some of the information that is currently being worked on by the science department, maybe help work any of these booby-traps so we would be able to avoid them."

"Sir, incoming message from the Xander."

"What is its Pibb?"

"They are experiencing a massive fluctuation in their warp core and their power systems are unstable. They are turning back to Starbase 10 for repairs."

"I guess that means we are on our own." G'ginloss commented.

"We do our best hunting on our own." Winters gave a slight grin.

"Looks like this mission just got more exciting."

Just as the XO finished saying his words a proximity alarm went off.

Before anyone could say anything an explosion went off nearby.

"Tactical, report" Winters almost yelled

"Looks to be another ship is on our starboard side, it's not reading as anything i have seen before." Ensign Wolfpaws replied.

"Explain!" G'ginloss said before the captain had the chance.

"The ship is not Federation, Klingon, or Romulan. Its hull is comprised of tungsten and adamantium."

"Hail them on all frequency with a general message asking what they are doing here" Captain Winters replied back
