Chapter 1

The Kelvin class starship entered Federation space with no challenges as it entered the Ka’Tula system. There were no ships from the planet to welcome them as Gabriel was on the bridge seeing the empty space in the view screen. Gabriel said, “You don’t detect any Ka’Tula or Celestial Being ships anywhere?” The navigator replied, “None sir.” Jen said, “That’s odd.” The captain said, “Helm set course to Lagrange 3, full impulse.” The USS David Coben entered the asteroid belt still not seeing any ships or mobile suits and Gabriel said, “Are we supposed to rendezvous with a representative from Celestial Being?” The navigator replied, “Yes a while ago. I don’t under...” The ship then shook violently, knocking some of the crew down while Gabriel and Jen held onto the railing as the helmsman yelled, “WARP POWER OFFLINE!” The navigator yelled, “WEAPONS ALSO!” Communications said, “Long range communications offline!” The captain yelled, “What the hell is going on?” The science officer yelled, “The fire is coming from one of the asteroids! I can’t get a defiant reading!” Gabriel yelled, “I know who it is! Communications, open all hailing frequencies!” The captain turned to him in shock and yelled, “MR. VALKYRIE I’M...” Gabriel said, “Trust me captain! Only Celestial Being can fire a weapon powerful enough to cause this much damage in one shot.” The captain frustratingly replied, “All right, you better be right Captain Valkyrie or else you will never be able to get a chance to captain a starship.” The communications officer said, “All channels open sir!” Gabriel said, “Celestial Being this is Captain Valkyrie from the starship Coben, cease firing! We are here because Zhargosia Republic Command told us you have a starship that is waiting to for its captain! Please respond!” A few moments later the communications officer said, “Sir they’re hailing us!” The captain replied, “On screen.” The view screen changed to show Captain Sumeragi in uniform and sitting in her command chair as she said, “You came at a bad time captain. Since we sent that transmission we have been hunted down by the Ka’Tula Federation.” The captain of the Coben said, “Once we have repaired our long range communications we will call Starfleet Command and inform them of the situation. Have you tried calling them yourselves?” Sumeragi replied, “We tried but our long range communications are blocked due to all the emergency calls that are flooding the long range channels when the terrorists attacks occurred. The only open channels are from Ka’Tula and they have been lying that everything is okay and they are repairing the damage to the pillars and solar panels. Ka’Tula believes we have caused the explosions and ever since we have been on the run or in hiding.” The captain of the Coben said, “Once we are able to send a message to Starfleet I’m sure they’ll send some starships to assess the situation and stop this nonsense.” Sumeragi replied, “They better soon. We will lead you to our base but keep it tight.” The captain of the Coben replied, “Affirmative.” The view screen changed back and the Ptolemaios flew from behind one of the asteroids and the David Coben followed maneuvering around the asteroids till they were in front of a larger asteroid with the Ptolemaios leading.

Two large craters on the asteroid opened and the Ptolemous moved in one and docked while the David Coben moved into position and was pulled in by a tractor beam and docked. A voice came over the intercom on the bridge and said, “USS David Coben, welcome to Lagrange 3.” The captain of the Coben said, “Thank You control.” There was a sound of locking clamps as the USS David Coben was moored in. Once the walkways and commendation tunnels are laid out Gabriel and Jen are the first ones to depart the ship, wearing their red uniforms, as a young female CB officer stood waiting for them and said, “Captain Valkyrie, Commander Jen Law welcome to Lagrange 3. If you follow me please I will show you your quarters till the ship is finally ready.” Gabriel replied (with a slight smile), “Lead the way Lt.” The girl blushed as she led while Jen kept a straight face but glared at Gabriel once his back is to her. As they moved down the passageways Gabriel said, “I heard Ian Vashti is in charge of the construction. When can I see him?” The Lt. replied, “It will be a while sir. He’s also busy modifying and repairing the gundams. I will inform you once he is available.” Gabriel said, “Make it a priority. I need to see him because the only way to stop this civil war nonsense is that ship until the Federation sends assistance.” The officer placed her hand on a hand print and said, “Yes sir.” The door opened and Gabriel stepped in and the officer said, “Are the quarters suited to your liking sir?” Gabriel looked around in the small quarters and said, “Its good for hopefully my short stay.” The officer said, “Excellent, just touch the comm panel and call me if you need anything. I am Lt. Yuy.” Gabriel made a charming smile and said, “Thank You Lt. Yuy.” Yuy blushed as Jen pretended not to take notice and Yuy looked at Jen and said, “Now for your quarters commander.” And she and Jen left leaving Gabriel to unpack himself.

When Gabriel finished unpacking the computer on his small desk beeper and Gabriel pressed the button and said, “This is Captain Valkyrie.” A voice said, “This is Chief Engineer Ian Vashti. Sorry I didn’t come to greet you myself but I have been extremely busy.” Gabriel said, “That’s all right Mr. Vashti. When will my ship be ready?” Ian replied, “Unfortunately I will not be able to finish due to my assistance needed to upkeep the gundams, but my wife Linda has been taking over in my place. She will come get you whenever she is available to go over the details. I also want to tell you Captain Till of the David Coben has hailed Starfleet and has informed them about the situation.” Gabriel said, “What did they say?” Ian replied, “They are assembling any available ship they can spare but it will take some time after what has been happening throughout the quadrant.” Gabriel sighed with disappointment and said, “I hope it’s not long.” Ian said, “You’re not the only one. Good night captain.” Gabriel said, “Good luck Mr. Vashti.” Ian made a low frustrating sigh and Gabriel smiled and kept from laughing when he sighed off.
