Star Trek Endeavor: Superior Intellect

By Michael Mulhollon

Action / Scifi

Chapter 1

Ender stated (as the USS Endeavor continued to orbit Starbase 214), “Captain’s log star date 2349.1, Starbase 214 is now completed and is now a fully operational starbase in this sector. Since we finished our mission to assist in the completion of this starbase we are now awaiting new orders for which we have just received by Admiral Luckley, except this conversation is only for me and the executive officer’s eyes only. Something is starting to tell me that this is probably a briefing for us that we are about to venture beyond Starbase 214 and into unknown space.” Ender and Petra are in Ender’s quarters and sitting in front of his terminal with Admiral Luckley’s face filling the screen with a grave expression on his face as he said, “Yesterday one of our long range sensors detected a series of explosions almost equivalent to mini-supernovas, but these explosions do not involve the suns but planetoids.” Ender and Petra both looked puzzled and concerned and Ender said, “Do you know where they are coming from and why it’s happening?” Luckley replied, “The nearest point of one of these explosions is ten sectors west of your current position. We don’t know why this is happening and that is why we are sending the USS Endeavor to investigate as it is the only capable starship to venture that far into unknown space.” Petra said, “How big is this space we are investigating?” Luckley replied, “The area covers roughly twelve sectors, possibly more.” Petra looked shocked and said, “Twelve sectors?!” Luckley said, “Commander, at least you are not the Enterprise and they are completing a five year mission. Your ship is now given top priority in supplies and personnel and we are sending a large number of medical teams just in case the planets that are being affected are inhabited and need immediate medical assistance.” Ender said, “Thank You admiral, we will not let you or the Federation down as the USS Endeavor will proudly represent the Federation in that uncharted space.” Luckley smirked and said, “I know you will captain, Admiral Luckley out.”

The screen went blank and Petra turned to Ender and said, “Ender, if we cover that part of space the admiral wants us to investigate it will take days if not weeks to cover!” Ender calmly replied, Petra, we can only assume that if this is a concern for Starfleet then that means they are nervous that if may spread to this part of space, if not invade the Federation.” Petra said, “Do you think this could be Julius’s or Khan’s work?” Ender replied only in silence and he pressed a button on his desk and Joachim said, “Yes captain?” Ender said, “Commander, load up extra supplies and personnel and tell Delphiki to help make room for the medical teams we are about to receive and double our stock on torpedoes and make sure our phaser banks and Trans-warp engines are fully functional.” Joachim replied with concern, “Yes captain, may I ask why?” Ender replied, “We are preparing to travel into unexplored space, that’s all I can tell you at this point.” Joachim said, “Yes sir.” Ender was about to turn away from his desk when suddenly he turned back around and said, “And Mr. Weiss.” Joachim replied, “Yes sir?” Ender tried to hide a smirk from Petra and said, “Have Commander Arkanian’s belongings move to my quarters to make room for the extra personnel.” Petra looked at him wide eyed as there was also a short pause on the line till Joachim replied (as if awaken from shock), “Yes sir!” Ender turned to face Petra’s shocked looking face as he smiled and said, “Oh come on Petra! Admit it, you were thinking the same thing!” Petra blushed as she tried to look away to hide her smile till she finally said, “Oh you’re right.” He then stood up and put both his hands on her shoulders and began to massage her neck and shoulders as she relaxed and sighed and Ender said, “Now, what should we do in the meantime?” She looked up at him and they both smiled before Ender leaned down and they both kissed and continued to kiss as Petra caressed the back of his head and black hair.

Roy Jenner: I was pleased to join the action where this B-17 was limping back across the English Channel defying all odds.
