" Uh Yes I do know about the translators, but call me a purist. 'sides I want to practice for when Worf gets here.

Thank you Lt"


Shione unpacks all her weapons except for the second kar'takin that she has in a purpose built leather sheath. She is gifting that to Worf.

She then changes into her workout gear, grabs her favourite Bat'leth and heads to the Holodeck. Cranks up the gravity to 1.3 and runs a KLingon weapon training program at her highest setting

Shione proceeds to the holodeck to run the programme Worf-03-992. a jungle-like landscape shimmers into existence and a skull-faced Humaoid in body armour attacks. Shione brings her bat'leth up to defend herself and soon loses track of time. at the end of her reservation, a chime rings and the opponents freeze in place. Shione is drenched in sweat and out of breath. It has been a good workout.

Argent's silver eyes stared morosely into his glass of Aldebaran whiskey. It was often hard to tell a Caitian's mood based on expressions. They certainly didn't look like the proverbial Cheshire cat when they were happy, but they were equally nondescript when they weren't.

"I don't like it," he muttered to the others... or to himself... or to no one at all really. It was hard to tell.

"I do not like it at all. I mean, it was strange enough that the Sphere had been built by some super techno-savvy species that had lived ten thousand years ago... But to find out that it was done by some species from another... universe! Why did they build it in our backyard? Why couldn't they have built it in their own? What was wrong with theirs?"

"Look... if it had been built to accommodate a world's over-population, that would make sense, right? Well, even if having the technology to build it meant they could have gone to a thousand other worlds, why build it? Surely they knew the star would become unstable at some point."

"Do we know for sure that what this Olivaw person told us is true? Even if Olivaw believes it, that doesn't make it so, does it?"


If the sphere now belonged to someone else, what was the point in returning? They'd just be trespassing. It had been a mystery to explore and investigate. Now it was just a big nuisance!

In reply to Argent Merawdr (msg # 19):

Shione smiled at the Caitian's rant and waited until he had finished before interjecting.

" He gave us the access codes, not only to the bases , but also the main entrances; so I think that means he does at least have some connection to those who built it.

And let's face it Argent, we have all heard of multiple stories about alternate universes.

Given that fact then, the ability to travel between universes means to me that they were interested in building it far from their home.

Think of it we have been given the keys to the sphere. This is now Federation territory and it's full of not only new cultures, but new races!.

I'm excited by the possibilities.

Lt Atek gave me some info on what may be our next mission. Let me check with him to see if I can share it with you"


She taps her comm badge. "Lt Kurasa to Lt Atek. Sir, can I share the data you gave me with my crew?"

She waits for Ateks response as well as word from her Mother

"Alright my trusty crewmates. Gather round"

Shione shows them http://www.coldnorth.com/owen/...cy/bortas/bortas.htm

"This is the details regarding the Klingon city here in the sphere.They are the so called "Fusion" Klingons. Throwbacks to ancient way of life and there are 7000+ of them living here.
I believe that we will be part of the mission to contact them.
Grab the file for your own perusal and we will discuss it tomorrow.

The Enterprise E arrives in just over 60 hours and I will do my best to arrange a tour for you all, I served aboard the D ending my time there as second in command of Security under LT Commander Worf.
He is now Ambassador Worf and will be on the ship along with my birth Father Doctor Sormock of Vulcan, who will also be part of the Bortas mission, I believe"

Any questions?"

Nivran asks, "What's this BortaS? Isn't that the Klingon word or vengeance or revenge?"

Sosal is walking past the table and overhears the conversation. "It's an old wrecked Klingon ship which crashed in the Sphere back in... oh, 2250. The survivors built a walled fortress and city around it. Caused a bit if a scandal in the Empire, I'll tell you. Seems they're some sort of Klingon-Human hybrids. Got a mediæval society built up there."

Tony agrees, "Yeah, I heard some of that over the grapevine. Sounds crazy, if iyo ask me. Story goes they stole some sort of Vulcan gizmo from the Rommies 'way back in the bad old days. M'Rel knows all about it—he was there."

"Yes M'Rel was and of all the people in the Federation you will never guess who he gave the item to"?

She takes a dramatic pause
"My Father,Sormock. It's a small world after all..

It looks as if there won't be any missions til after the Enterprise arrives, but I'm hoping I can convince the Lieutenant to let us take the Kitch out and show my mom the sphere.

She's been a bit stressed since she arrived and I think it would do her good."


She nods at the Mirak "It would also be a chance for you to get a look around Nivran"

Sosal takes out a PADD and does a search on the Vulcan artefact stolen from the Romulans. "The Vulcan psionic weapon dates back to the Romulan schism, it says here. It was called the tor Fal and was used by the orthodox Vulcans against the Romulan faction. The Romulans captured it but were unable to use it against the Vulcan orthodoxy, so when they fled Vulcan they took it with them. It was kept in a museum on Romii until 2250 when the IKS BortaS—sound familiar?—captured it and fled, chased by the 5th Squadron. They reported the BortaS destroyed, a claim the Klingons have always disputed with the BortaS becoming a legend that lent its name to the holothriller series may'Duj bortaS, or Battlecruiser Vengeance. Of course we now know what happened to the BortaS. After M'Rel, Seth and Tal took the tor Fal from the BortaS' command boom and discovered that it was a powerful psionic resonator, Ensign T'Zill, a Vulcan science officer, stole it and tried to flee in a Romulan Theta class Runabout. M'Rel and the USS Lena retrieved it and destroyed the Romulan Runabout, killing T'Zill, who was later determined to be a Romulan deep-cover agent. Starfleet returned the tor Fal to the Vulcans. It doesn't say who took custody of the tor Fal, though."

[OOC: No word yet from Melissandra]

Sosal taps the PADD a couple of times. "It appears that they merely found the artefact while raiding the Romulans because... well, that's what Klingons do. They just knew that it was an important Romulan relic. They didn't know—or even care—that it was either Vulcan, or a psionic weapon. Just lucky, I guess... It wasn't until a Vulcan crew member recognised the ancient Vulcan writing on it and translated it that anyone found out. LCdr. M'Rel found it in a heap of spoils in the command boom. It didn't look Klingon, so he took it for study."

Seconds later, Shione's commbadge chirps. Melissandra's voice comes from the device, "Melissandra Dul to Lieutenant Kurasa. Cassiadora has asked to see you. She seems to be on an even keel at the moment. P'ease come to her quarters."

Shione arrives at Cassy's quarters and presses the door chime. "Come," replies Cassy's voice. Shione steps in Cassy is there, her eyes red and puffy.

Cassy's voice is hoarse. "Well, it looks like you've won. You've managed to turn my parents against me. Not only that, you've managed to steal my First Contact credit from me and engineered a promotion, to boot. Congratulations," she says, her vopice dripping with irony. Her parents are nowhere to be seen.

" No I did no such thing.
Your parents and I are on your side
None of us want you to get hurt and the promotion is Brevet
Our ship has no CO, so I'm in charge there till someone else comes along.

If you wanted the credit ,then why did you tell me to take him?


She sits down, prepared for a long conversation, a concerned and sympathetic tone to her voice

Whether you like it or not ,you are my sister and I will always stand by you,even when you accuse me of treason"

Cassy says viciously, "On my side? Don't make me laugh, you bitch. I'll take you down if it's the last thing I do!" She shoves Shione, who manages to catch her balance and not fall, but by then she's outside the door. "Computer close and lock door!" yells Cassy and the door slides shut, leaving Shione out in the hall.

Shione finds Melissandra and Nyle in their guest quarters. when she tells her mother about the encounter with Cassy, Melissandra looks shocked. "I truly thought that Cassy was going to call a truce with you..." she stammers.

Nyle is stony-faced. "This is not like Cassy. To be certain, she's always been a bit spoiled, and for that I must take the blame, but there's something more involved. For what it's worth, you have my apologies, Shione."
