Star Trek Defiance: Abduction

By mmulhollon

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.

John Smith: This is what Sci Fi is all about. Reads like early Heinlein. In the style of Space Cadets. No esoteric problems..but good ol blaster and space action with a host of relatable characters

_JosephJacobson_: I don't understand why this has such low ratings. I really enjoyed it!I think that the whole idea behind the plot had something very special and that was something that I really enjoyed. It was new, unique. I think that some of the writing was a little strange in places but overall it made sense ...

Chris Rolfe: BOY!!! I sure love what Aer-Ki Jyr did with this series. IMHO he captured the essence of what stargate is all about. Thru out the Stargate stories Aer-Ki wrote Stevens and John Shepard some of the main characters in his stories are pursued by a corrupt I.O.A.. All the while Stevens is changing in...

Hawkebat: Playing both Kotor I & II and Swtor I found the story line interesting and it held me until chapter 35 Very good story and plot flow until then, very few technical errors. I felt that the main character was a bit under and over powered, as it fought for balance. The last few chapters felt too f...

shawnas26: I knocked it out in one sitting and enjoyed it thoroughly. Thanks for sharing! :) I'll be looking forward to reading the next in the series.

Ben Gauger: Kudos to Bryan Laesch, author of Remnants of Chaos:Chaotic Omens for his use of the Gothic style of writing and in addition the footnotes and endnotes at the end of each chapter, a welcome accompaniment to be sure, though his use of grammar could use a little improving, but his use of punctuation...

Tiffany Thomson: This story is not something I would normally pick up and read but I'm so glad I did, I wasn't able to put it down and my husband was yelling at me at 3am to put it down and go to bed (just waited for him to doze back off before picking it back up) I really hope Natalie brings out another book eit...

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.

Ben Gauger: Kudos go to wordworrywill, author of Kings and Things, an otherwise imaginative tale set against the trappings of the royal set, but then again I don't imagine there'd be many authors who invoked the names of Oprah Winfrey, Vladimir Putin, Jeff Bezos, Beyonce and Steven Spielberg, As for the plot...

PaulSenkel: If you like Arthur C. Clarke's Odyssey, especially The Final Odyssey, then you will probably also enjoy this book. I definitely did.It does, however, address a more adolescent public than the above-mentioned book.I enjoyed the story and finished it in a few days. The overall situation on earth an...

Leah Brown: This was an amazing read! I was hooked from the very first chapter, holding my breadth to see what would happen next. The characters are rich and vibrant, and the world Danielle has created is fascinating. If you love YA, you MUST read this book. Such a smart, brilliant debut novel. I loved it!
