Star Trek Endeavor: Chaotic Catovens

By mmulhollon

Adventure / Scifi

Chapter 1

Ender said, “Captain’s Log star date 2343.5, we are on our way to Starbase 214 to aid the starfleet personnel that are finishing the construction of the starbase. On our journey we are given the task on charting new star systems and create a safe passage between starbases 11 and 214. Once we complete our primary mission we will next explore the unknown space that is past the Talarian Republic.” Ender is sitting in his command chair and sighed a report from the yeoman when comms said, “Sir I’m receiving an SOS signal from an unidentified ship!” Ender turned to her general direction concerned and said, “Where?” Petra was looking down at her scanner and said, “The unknown vessel is one sector ahead of us captain!” Ender turned back forward and said, “Helm lay a new heading to that ship. Comms notify medical and Starfleet Command about our status and we are answering to an SOS from an unidentified ship. Commander, you detect any weapons or other ships in the vicinity?” Petra replied, “Negative captain.” Comms replied, “Aye captain.” Ender presses a button on his armrest and says, “Attention crew this is the captain. We are changing course to answer a distress call from an unidentified vessel. Since we are still in uncharted space all stations go to yellow alert. Captain out.” The USS Endeavor flew across space leaving a blue and red streak behind it towards the unknown ship in distress.

On the main viewer the USS Endeavor started slowing down and Joachim said, “Sir we are approaching the coordinates.” Ender pressed a button on his armrest and said, “Sickbay, prepare to receive injured crews and personnel.” A male voice replied, “Yes sir.” The main viewer then showed an oval shaped, grey body with one short piped shaped nacelles on each back end with a green gaseous substance spewing off from the port nacelle as the ship sat adrift. Ender said, “Hail them.” Comms pressed a few buttons and said, “Channel is open captain.” Ender said, “This is Captain Andrew Wiggin of the Federation starship Endeavor! We have received your distress call and are here to assist! What is your emergency?” Silence and Ender said, “Are they receiving us?” Comms said, “Yes sir but I have no reply.” She touched her ear piece for a few moments and said, “Sir, transporter room said they are receiving six transport signals that are beaming over to the transporter room!” Ender looked at comms alert as well as the rest of the bridge crew and he said, “Have security send three to the transporter room and the doctor to meet me there on the double!” Ender left his chair and headed to the turbo lift as he said, “Commander you have the con!” Before Petra could reply he was already in the turbo lift when the door closed.

Ender entered the transporter room where everyone is waiting and the doctor looked concerned and said, “Captain are they beaming their injured aboard?” Ender said, “We are about to find out. Energize!” The transporters are engaged and as the six figures materialized Ender and the others noticed they are covered with orange hair, have features of that of a cat and wore thick silk dresses as they looked around nervously. Ender said, “I’m Captain Wiggin of the starship Ende...” Before he could finish they all made meowing angry noises as they ran up to Ender shaking their fists/claws in the air as the security team drew their phasers and pointed at them as the security team ran in-between the captain and the unknown visitors. The visitors stood right in front of them steadfast as they continued to meow and make hissing noises and Ender said, “Translator please!” The transporter chief pressed a few buttons on his console hurriedly and the speakers came on and translated what the visitors are saying as they said, “Our husbands have flown off! They sabotaged our engines! Why are you here you pasty creatures while they escape? Move your fat ship!” Ender looked alert and confused and the doctor yelled over the Catovens (As they called their husbands during the visitors rants), “Sir they are all females and my readings indicate that they are perfectly healthy with the exception of their blood pressure!” Ender looked frustrated as he yelled over the meowing Catovens, “Good! Escort them to the conference room doctor and tell them my executive officer will be there to help answer both our questions!” The doctor looked at him shocked and yelled, “Captain...” Ender yelled back, “That’s an order, good luck!” Ender walked fast out of the transporter room as he rubbed his ears while the female Catovens made their way over to the doctor as he looked at them with a shocked expression. Ender entered the turbo lift as he stuck one of his fingers to his ear and stretched his jaw before he said, “ Bridge.” And the turbo lift began to move.

The turbo lift door opened on the bridge and Ender stepped out as Petra turned in her seat, got up and moved towards him and suddenly made a concerned expression and said, “Why are your ears red?” Ender replied grimly, “You’ll find out when you go to the conference room and talk to the Catovens as they call themselves.” Petra looked at him with a worried expression before heading to the turbo lift when Joachim said, “Sir, I found a trace of a warp signature.” Ender sat in his command chair and said, “From what I was told by our guests they are part of their party and left without them. Do you have a heading?” Joachim replied, “In a few moments sir.” Ender pressed a button on his armrest and said, “Doctor how are our guests?” The doctor said (with the noises of the Catovens in the background), “Well enough to drive me crazy! They also agree for you to send people to their ship and repair the damages and they have no casualties!” Ender smirked and said, “Once you finish with them see to it they are comfortable and if they with to return to their ship they are free to go.” The doctor yelled over the noise, “Yes sir!” Ender pressed another button and said, “Delphiki are you and you’re engineering crews ready to beam over?” Nikolai replied, “Yes sir.” Ender said, “Begin transport and get those repairs done as soon as you can.” Nikolai replied, “Aye sir.” And Ender pressed the same button as he smiled at himself.

TonyHeredia: I've been reading science fiction and fantasy for many years and I still don't think I've read a story like this before. It is realistic, lusty and techy all at the same time.

Karl12: This is a very unusual sci-fi mystery. I enjoyed the suspense which was present throughout the story. I loved how I never knew what to expect from the characters.

petew25: I have been reading WW2 novels for years and am a retired Marine pilot. Though the plot in some ways reminded me of the Gregory Peck classic leadership movie, "Twelve O'Clock High" I thought the author did a good job overall. The plot was believable and the characters were as well. In some places...

genlynne2379: I read the other review of this book and I must say that I disagree with it wholeheartedly. I do not believe the author put the apostrophes in the names just to be unique, but because the characters are supposedly of a different race than humans. They are Anmah. They should have different names a...

re8622: The Last Exodus quickly grabbed my attention. Almost as soon as I started reading the story, I couldn't put it down.

SandraHan1: This story is very descriptive, with vivid scenes from the very beginning, which made for a good scene setting. I love the symbolism in names, such as “Naysayers”, “Hadd”, etc .

Erin Crowley: The concept here is really strong, but the execution is definitely lacking. Tenses, grammar, etc are all off, with at least one or more errors per 'Page' on my phone. The writing style is almost broken- sentences move into each other awkwardly, and are filled with an excess of "filler words", lik...
