Star Trek Defiance: Runabout

By Michael Mulhollon

Scifi / Action

Chapter 1

The Runabout flew in a blue lit tunnel across space as the ship is in warp while inside the ship Goku strenuously said, “500!” Michael also said strenuously, “499!” On the bridge Goku and Michael are doing push-ups as they faced one another as Minos appeared (looking a little tired as he made a weak yawn) and said, “What are you two doing?” Goku said, “Push-up competition Minos!” Michael said, “Yeah bro, you should try it!” Minos laughed heartedly and said, “No thanks, one time with Goku is enough for me. When are we...?” Suddenly the ship jolted as there was a loud explosion and Michael, Goku and Minos flew about the bridge yelling as the Runabout spun out of control and out of the warp tunnel as the red alert lights and alarm went off. As the ship spun Michael struck his chair and quickly grabbed hold to it and reached out to the helm controls in front of him and slammed the middle button on the steering indicators and the ship suddenly stopped and he and the others fell flat on the deck.

Michael and Goku crawled up to their seats as they moaned in pain while Minos grabbed the hand rail above his head as he stood in the middle and he said, “What the hell is that?” Chloe said, “I was about to ask the same thing!” She appeared on the bridge wearing plain clothes along with Arsenal and Michael pressed a couple of buttons and the alarm turned off before he pressed a button and his monitor switched to view the aft of the Runabout and Michael’s eyes widen as he said, “Oh shit.” He saw spider shaped purple ships with the limbs pointed at the Runabout’s rear and a familiar voice spoke over the intercom, “Michael Valkyrie this is Scorpio. On behalf of Lord Serenity you are to stop and prepare to be boarded. This is your only warning.” Goku looked shocked and said, “How did this guy find us?” Michael replied, “I don’t know, but at this point I don’t care!” He immediately pulled up the star charts on his console and saw to the top right of his screen there is an asteroid field and he pressed a button and the chart showed up on the others consoles and Michael said, “Are you guys up to dodging asteroids?” Chloe looked at Michael and said, “You better hope they are not dumb enough to follow us.” Goku looked at them both shocked and said, “Wait what?” Michael said, “Arsenal, can that weapons pod fire behind us?” Arsenal grunted in acknowledgement. Michael said, “Arsenal, give us covering fire on the rear! Chloe, you are my co-pilot!” Minos said, “What about us?” Michael said, “Uh, hang on?” Goku looked confused while Minos looked shocked and they both braced in their seat and hand rail tightly. Michael pressed a couple of buttons and two joysticks appeared in front of him from the console showing the right nacelle connected to the right joystick and the left nacelle to the left joystick and he said, “Are you ready?” Chloe replied, “Always!” Arsenal grunted in acknowledgement while Goku and Minos groaned in worry.

Behind the Runabout and the spider shaped ships there is a larger one with a glass viewing window in the front as Scorpio stood behind it sitting in the center chair with a horseshoe control station as he watched the spider ships tried to approach the Runabout as it continued to speed ahead of them. Scorpio grunted in anger and said, “Enough of this. Target their engines!” There is a low beeping noise as the lights on the unmanned stations below Scorpio flashed and a male robotic voice said, “Engines targeted, awaiting for command to fire.” Scorpio moved his hand over a red button as he sat ready to press it.

mellissayr: This novel has potential to be even better, maybe more details in some areas but overall it is great story and believable and I am glad to see someone writing about an aspect of some bikers that most people are unaware can exist.

Ayeni Temitope Emilia: The plot of the novel is the bomb!!!! Nice story line. Keep it up!!!! The setting is also good. But the writer has to work a little on the spellings and grammatical errors.

mustang65: The story was really good, but I just wish that we would have know how did they get her Father and also what was going on during the time they had her and what her husband was doing to find her. To explore the plot more. If you have other stories I would love to read them.

AKOREDE : This book is mediocre at its best, while I applaud the author’s technIcal writing skills, I disapprove of the plot. There was too much happening in the book. The drama with Tony should have been the only problem and Tony should’ve been the only antagonist. Introducing Zachariah into the book gave...

IAteYourCookieChild: I've never seen, no, experienced a more three-dimensional character then Iris. Truly. Every time I read these tangible words on a screen, I feel like I've been betrayed by my own reality as it feels like much more than just that. More than words on a screen. As if I'm truly seeing Iris, living Ir...

Madeline2911: This is the second time I have this story and I have fallen in love with it all over again. I just can't get enough of your books. They are well written and the plot is developed really well. Please continue writing!

Yuli: I was in awe the entire time. Plenty of drama to keep me sucked in.For future reference, have someone else of experience edit your beautiful writing so that it's perfected. Please continue writing more amazing works of art.

kirite01: This was a very exciting story. I wasn't able to figuratively "put the book down" until I finished it. There were a few grammar mistakes, and there could be a little more backstory for the characters (mostly in how they got to know each other) but it flowed really well and was a fun read. I can't...
