Star Trek Defiance: Abduction

By Michael Mulhollon

Action / Scifi

Chapter 1

As the Runabout sped through across space the song “Angel of the Morning” by Juice Newton played on a built in CD player in the left console as a hula girl wobbled on top and Michael’s boots propped on the edge of the console as he laid back in his seat and snored. A red light blinked on the console and the words “Proximity Warning” lit up but Michael continued to snore even as the Runabout continued to head towards the large asteroid in front of it. Goku entered the bridge and yawned as he stretched when he looked forward and saw the asteroid and suddenly he looked wide eyed and yelped, “HEY WAKE UP!” Michael suddenly jumped in the air and yelled in shock as he flailed in the air before landing hard on his butt. Michael grimaced in pain and said, “Dude what the...” Goku yelled, “ASTEROID!” Michael looked up in shock and said, “Oh shit!” And he quickly got up and pressed a couple of buttons and the Runabout made a sharp right turn, just missing the asteroid and everything loose was thrown about including Goku as he yelped as he slammed on the left wall panel hard. Michael sighed and said, “That’s a close one.” Chloe yelled in the background, “Michael! What the hell!” As Goku stood up and rubbed his side Michael slouched his shoulders and said, “Oh I’m in for it now.” Chloe appeared on the bridge wearing a large grey top that is too big for her with Minos following behind and she said with a look of both anger and shock, “What did you do duchbag?” Michael scratched his head as he looked like he was trying to think but with a worried expression and said, “Uh, I was, distracted?” Chloe glared at him and said, “You mean sleeping, right?” Michael saw the growing anger on Chloe’s face and he gulped nervously and made a light heartedly laugh when Chloe suddenly yelled, “If you are going to take a nap, use the fracking autopilot!” Michael leaned back in his sea looking terrified as she yelled and he replied nervously, “Sorry.” Goku stood gawking at her form and what she is wearing and Chloe noticed as she looked at him and she said angrily, “What?” Goku suddenly came to and he scratched the back of his head and smiled nervously and said, “Oh nothing! Just amazed that we missed that asteroid and didn’t turn ourselves into space pancakes!” And he made a fake laugh, but Chloe didn’t buy it and she grabbed the fire extinguisher next to her, swung and hit Goku at the side of his head. Goku yelped in pain as he rubbed the right side of his head as Michael tried to hide his laughter only to be hit across the head as well and knocked off his chair. As Michael drooled on the floor Chloe sat the fire extinguisher down and she said, “That’s for nearly getting us killed.” And she stormed away while Minos (all the while) looked in shock and quickly stepped back to get out of Chloe’s away before heading back to his room.

Goku sat in the chair in front of the right console as Michael dragged himself back to his seat and nursed his head and cheek. Goku said, “Man, she is almost as bad as Chi-Chi.” Michael said, “Yep, that’s my girl. Hey, I’ve been meaning to ask you. How’s life being away from him and surrounded by people who barely know who you really are?” Goku replied, “Well, it’s a little weird since at home almost everyone knew me but out here I’m just another stranger who happens to be stronger than everybody else.” Michael said, “Yeah, but after we do this job and take out this Lord Serenity there is a chance your cover will be blown.” Goku shrugged his shoulders and cringed his face as if he didn’t care and said, “Yay, oh well. I’ll just travel to the other side of the galaxy.” Michael smiled and punched Goku lightly on the shoulder and said, “I like your style dude, but...” Suddenly there is a screeching sound and Michael and Goku cringed as they covered their ears while the computer screens and lights on the consoles flickered and the main power suddenly shut off when the screeching stopped. A few moments later the back up power came on but the lights and displays looked dim as Michael looked around confused and said, “What the...” Minos appeared on the bridge followed by Arsenal and he looked worried and said, “What’s going on? The main lights just went out!” Michael then turned to his console and pressed a couple of buttons repeatedly as he grew frustrated and said, “We lost propulsion and communications!” Goku pressed random buttons as well as Chloe came up to the bridge (fully dressed) with a look of both worry and frustration and said, “Michael what the hell is happening?” Michael replied, “Main power is out and we are running on emergency power, but propulsion, communications and weapons are offline!” Then three bright lights appeared right in front of them through the window temporarily blinding them and when they looked past the lights they saw three ships shaped in the form of flying saucers. Suddenly there was a brilliant white flash that encompassed the bridge as Michael and the others covered their eyes and/or ducked and eventually passed out.

Catherine Kopf: Wow! This was a really great story. I really enjoy reading fantasy, so it didn't take long for me to become invested in the book and its characters like Jacob. I really liked your writing style, and it seemed to flow very well. The descriptions that you used for your world were also created n...

263Adder: Okay so I adore this story. I only knocked one star off plot for historical inaccuracies because I'm a bit of a stickler for that. The ending broke my heart though, considering you already changed history couldn't you (SPOILER) change it a bit more and have them together!!!! I want an alternative...

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 . The story itself is revolutionary, intriguing, emotional and exciting. I was very pleased to see that there is a happy ...

aaron10905: This is undoubtedly one of the best books written on here. I actually unistalled this app until someone told me about this story. I came back not expecting much, just to be drawn into the story and the characters. I would buy this book in real life, as long as another was promised shortly after.

nirrmitshah: A truely touching story where you'd be at the edge of your seat for the most time. even though the starting might seem rushed, the story was extremely interesting and entertaining. I think certain parts could be added detailing the Mynds's culture. As well as more details on the Jhanthru history....

Pablo Rojas: Love the story, at the end it is a western story, simple, yet giving hints and pieces of the situation that is happening all over ravencroft´s universe. easy to read and always keeping with the main stream story I want to keep reading about, Olafson´s adventures.

Jasmine Chow: As I read this story, I was reminded some what of Terry Pratchett, especially some descriptions of politics and economics. The sci-fic setting is quite intriguing. Writing style is quite lovely and grew on me slowly. I was also slightly reminded of Mark Twain, especially his book A Connecticut Ya...

kim: This is great! Maybe it could just be a little more specific. One of the keys to great writing is describing things in detail. I think you're off to a great start. I wish you much luck.

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...
