Star Trek Defiance: Discharged

By mmulhollon

Scifi / Action

Chapter 1

Lord Serenity dropped his sword and the tip struck the metal deck creating an energy blast from the center of the U shaped ship sending a red ball of light at the orbital complex and the people aboard just barely have time to scream when it hit the main body of the station and exploded.  Lord Serenity’s ship moved right in front of The Little Doctor and the machines beamed over and with little effort the engines came online.  On his ship Lord Serenity said, “Engage tractor beam and warp engines." Once the tractor beam engaged on The Little Doctor both ships and the B’rel went to warp leaving behind a wreckage and bodies floating where the orbital complex, Alpha Station and the dry dock once stood.  

On Zhargosia Michael and Chloe witnessed the destruction and Lord Serenity’s message and they both looked shocked and Chloe said, “Please tell me you still have a plan.”, Michael replied, “Yeah, but at this point you are not going to like it.”, he looked at her and they moved close together down the stairs and Michael said, “Find an inconspicuous form of transportation and wait in front of Police Headquarters.  Do you still have your outfit?” Chloe stared at him and said, “You know I do.” and Michael replied, “Good, because you are going to need it.”, they both went their separate ways after Michael tells her to arrive in three hours and just as Michael turned a corner he ran into Tenchi and Michael looked surprised and said, “Tenchi, what are you doing here?”, Tenchi replied, “Just came to find you and say that they are safe.  Although I feel sorry for them that for now they have to deal with Ryoko on their own.” He was surprise when Michael grabbed him by the shoulders and yelled with excitement, “WHAT?  My sister is alive?” Tenchi looked at him both shocked and puzzled and said, “Yes!  I wished her back with the dragon balls.  Didn’t you know?” Michael replied (still excited), “No!  A lot has happened that wishing her back with the dragon balls did not cross my mind.  Boy would she be glad to see Gabriel and...” he then looked like he forgot something and then he remembered and said, ‘OH!  Since you’re are here I need your help with something!” Tenchi said, “Sure, what is it?” Michael then wrapped his right arm over Tenchi’s shoulders as they walked away and whispered to Tenchi.  Tenchi looked up in shock and yelled, “ARE YOU CRAZ...,” Michael said, “Shhhh!  Don’t worry, it’s going to be a walk in the park.” 

A squad car paralleled park right in front of Police Headquarters and in the driver’s seat (changed into a police uniform) sat Chloe and she changed the dial on the radio till she found a channel that played “Don’t Stop Believin’” by Journey.  Tenchi waited at the information desk on the 10th floor and as he waited he noticed a girl behind the desk making occasional glances at him.  He smiled at her and she blushed and just when he was about to speak to her an alarm goes off and Tenchi looked alarm and said to himself, “Oh no.” and looked at one of the secured doors with a key pad in front when all of a sudden Michael bursted out with a rounded case and waving a handgun around and yelling hysterically, “Get back!  I got a gun!  I’m crazy!” and he grabbed Tenchi as Tenchi yelled, “Have you lost your mind!”, and he used Tenchi as if he was a hostage as police officers nearby started pulling out either tasers or guns and Michael whispered, “Run”, before he yelled out, “I’m crazy, I got a gun you nutcrackers!” and he shoved Tenchi away as he continued to wave his gun around and they both started running down the building passing cubicles as Tenchi yelled, “Michael are you crazy!  What the hell happened?” Michael replied, “I though I still have security clearance but they’re changed it a lot earlier than I thought!”, Tenchi then yelled, “Great plan!  Now how are we going to get out of this mess?”, and Michael yelled, “Get to the fucking staircase!” and when they reached the corner where the stairs are they both yelled, “OH!” as they saw two dozen police officers in the middle of gearing up and Michael yelled, “THAT WAY!”, and they both ran just before an officer fired two phaser rounds that struck the corner where Michael and Tenchi ran past.  As they continued running, but low as officers behind them started firing phasers, Tenchi slowed down as he saw the large glass windows facing the outside and Michael grabbed hold of his back collar and dragged him forward and Tenchi yelled, “I HATE THIS!” Michael tried to keep from laughing as he yelled back, “I know you do!” and Michael emptied his handgun at the window causing it to crack to the point that it might break as Michael dragged Tenchi behind as he smashed through the window and they both fell screaming (Tenchi in terror while Michael in delight).

Chloe began head bobbing and jamming to the song as she just started singing the lyrics when all of a sudden Michael smashed through the roof in the back seat (feet first) with Tenchi in tow as Chloe yelped with shock.  Michael looked and noticed he and Tenchi were in a cop car and he yelled in shock, “What the fuck yo!  Do you call this inconspicuous?”, Chloe said, “Where the fuck did you come from?” Tenchi yelled hysterically (repeatedly), “We jumped ten floors!”, Chloe yelled (over Tenchi’s screaming), “Are you serious?  I got this car so no one will stop us and you pull this shit!”, they then noticed police officer’s storming out of the building towards them and both Michael, Chloe and Tenchi looked in shocked and they both yelled, “OH SHIT!” and Chloe floored it as Michael yelled, “Drive, drive the fucking car!”, and he fired two shots in the air (after he reloaded) as they pulled away making the police hesitant.  The gates at the entrance closed as they approached and Tenchi yelled, “We’re trapped!”, Chloe yelled back, “Hell no!”, and Tenchi screamed as they smashed through the gate while Michael screamed in delight.  Chloe took a radical left turn forgetting she had unlocked the doors earlier and the right side passenger door flew open and Tenchi almost fell out till he grabbed the door frame as he screamed in pure terror.  Michael laughed really hard as he watched Tenchi almost scream like a girl and Chloe yelled back, “Don’t just sit there!  Help your brother-in-law you idiot!”, and Michael grabbed Tenchi and hauled him back in before closing and locking the door.  Tenchi yelled, “You’re both crazy!”, Michael and Chloe looked at him and they both said, “Shut up!”, and Tenchi looked shocked but kept his mouth closed as Chloe turned forward and turned the car down an alley and stopped.  Tenchi said, “Why are we stopping?”, Chloe (as she shed off the police uniform to reveal her Green Comet outfit), “We have to ditch the car stupid.” five police officers showed up covering both ends of the alley and an officer said, “Halt, police!”, they all raised their hands (with Tenchi holding his hands way up) and the officers pinned Michael to the wall as they tried to cuff him as well as Chloe and Tenchi, but when Chloe kicked the officer behind her in the knee and he fell another officer tassed her and Tenchi yelled, “Hey, stop that!”, and he tried to push away but the officer yelled in his ear, “DO YOU WANT TO BE LIKE HER?”, the other officer still kept tassing Chloe and he yelled, “Take that you green bitch!”, and Michael yelled out, “Leave her alone fucker!”, Tenchi was so angry he suddenly slammed the back of his head at the officer’s face before he pulled one of his arms out and elbowed him in the gut and flipped him while at the same time snapped his arm.

Two officers came after him and Tenchi punched one in face, knocking out a couple of his teeth and made a roundhouse kick on another before the first officer got up and tased Tenchi directly in the chest.  Tenchi quickly ignored the pain and tripped him before planting his foot down on his chest, knocking the air out of him, and the officer that was tassing Chloe pulled out his reloaded taser only for Tenchi to make another roundhouse kick sending the officer, face first, into the dumpster and kicked the top down.  Another officer grabbed Tenchi by his back collar only for Tenchi to slip out of his jacket, turned and kicked the officer squarely in the chest sending him sprawling on his back and groaning in pain.  Tenchi looked back and saw Michael and Chloe were both staring at him and Michael said, “And you said we are crazy.”, Tenchi replied, “I just don’t like bullies.”, Michael eyed him and said, “Just?”, they heard the sound of boots running and Michael, Tenchi and Chloe ran through the unlocked door next to them and went to the roof of one of the buildings and Michael said, “You two go that way, I’ll go this way.”, pointing at opposite directions, “We’ll meet at the hotel we talked about.”, Tenchi looked confused but followed Chloe while Michael, with the bag, jumps from rooftop to rooftop in the opposite direction.  Tenchi and Chloe went from rooftop to rooftop as well but one of the building’s top staircase door’s started to open and Tenchi hit the door with his body slamming the door back and knocking an officer out.  In the meantime Chloe jumped to the next roof and just as the staircase door opened she grabbed the door handle, swung and kicked the officer in the face sending him sprawling backwards and knocking down the others behind him.  When Tenchi caught up they jumped to another roof and as they ran they saw two cops on another roof in front of them and Tenchi and Chloe jumped to the roof where the cops are and simultaneously punched both of them in the face a they landed.

As Michael ran cops appeared on the rooftop son other buildings and started shooting at him.  Michael pulled out his phaser and started shooting to this right as he ran looking away as a greenery house to this right was getting shot up, spraying glass everywhere and Michael made blind shots forcing them to take cover.  He then saw one roof was a little too far and Michael turned, jumped and shot at all four cops that were shooting at him before Michael fell straight into a large dumpster on his back and the trash lid closed.  Michael sat back inside the garbage can and waited for what felt like hours till he’s sure they stopped looking and when he looked around he noticed the cost was clear, exited the trash can and ran to the street to hail a cab.  During the trip and entering the hotel he eyed around and was relieved no one had take notice of who he is and when he stood in front of the door of the room he was about to knock till the door suddenly threw open and Michael was yanked inside by the collar by Chloe before the door was slammed shut.  Before he could say anything Chloe said, “Is that what I think it is?”, Michael looked down and pulled out a portable beaming device and said, “Yea, and it is worth it.”, Tenchi said, “Why do we need that?”, Michael replied, “You’ll find out once we get to Mab-Bu.”, Tenchi said, “Wait a minute, you mean...”, Michael nodded and said, “Yep, I need to see Arsenal to get something.”.

Dru83: This is perhaps my favorite part of the Olafson story just because it is here that were are introduced to his "gang". The characters are so diverse and complicated that each of them could just about spawn their own story. Eric's buddies are just so captivating and the plot just rolls along. Again...

Alexis Dredd Zarcal: Overall, it's a rather thrilling piece, merging superstition, psychology, slice of life, and the usual Japanese risque fare. All the elements have rhyme and reason in being placed together.The respective background stories of the characters involved so far also give a sense of flair and thrill.I'...

Jean Tryon: As a beta, I found this story outstanding!! Plot, grammar, phraseology, etc Rachel gives us it all. She takes the story into the future from where due South ends. She is an exacting and thoughtful author.

heavyreader: great scifi novels but needs a better spell checker (check auto-substitution level) and grammar checker!!! otherwise, ready for mass market publishing!!

Kelsey Miller: Page turner set in a gritty future. Loads of flavor and depth that makes the pages fly by until like me you are at the end of the book wanting more!The world is developed to the point it begs more stories set in this harsh reality. More adventures from Daryl and thr crew.

Remini UDA: I would like to firstly admit I do not like the romance genre, it's not something I tend to read and as such I did not complete the whole story and only made it to chapter 15. Whether that affects this review is for you to consider.The Unknown Variant is a very well written book, as a reader I wa...

cassandrab: Delightful SciFi (for a change)! I am not a SciFi fan: mostly the genre is far too dystopic for me. This book (written by a high-school friend) is, on the other hand, generally upbeat. Yes, Earth's future is threatened. But Earth has a chance to plan a response. And (spoiler alert) ultimately win...

Melissa Davis: Interesting book and an enjoyable read. Had something different to it, that made me glad I picked it up.

ga1984: I really enjoyed it! Characters were deep and plot was pretty complex. A bit on the violent side but it doesnt detract from the story. Very dark but situations make sense. Ends kinda abruptly and later chapters will need some editing work. I'm assuming there's more in the works?
