Star Trek Endeavor: The Wrath of Caesar

By Michael Mulhollon

Scifi / Action

Chapter 1

Ender and the rest of the bridge crew watched as the Vengeance retreated and Petra looked somberly and said, “Sir you did it.” Ender turned in Petra’s direction and replied, “Not me commander, you.” Petra looked down as if in a trance as Ender watched her nervously and was about to speak when Vars exclaimed, “Sir, I’m receiving a transmission from the other side of the planet!” Ender and the rest of the bridge crew either looked shocked or puzzled as Ender made a puzzling look at her and said, “Put it on main viewer.” The face of an older, hispanic woman in an International Fleet uniform filled the screen and she spoke, “This is Lt. Colonel Ramirez, to whom I am speaking?” Ender replied firmly, “This is Captain Andrew Wiggin of the Federation starship Endeavor.” Ramirez first looked confused and then surprised before she said, “Andrew Wiggin? Are you the one that defeated the Formics?” Petra looked at Ender with a worried expression but Ender kept his firm gaze and said, “Yes, I am the one that defeated the Formics.” Ramirez looked even more shocked before she was able to get a hold of herself and spoke nervously, “M..Mr. Wiggin, we will send some ships out to help you with repairs!” Ender nodded and said, “That’s unnecessary ma...” The screen suddenly changed back to its previous view and Ender looked confused.

Vars replied to Ender’s confusion, “She cut off transmission sir.” Joachim looked at Ender (puzzled) and asked, “Sir, do you know these people?” Ender replied grimly, “Yes. This is my home I told you about.” Ender turned and walked around the screens before sitting in his command chair and pressed a button on his arm rest that retracted the transparent screens before him. Ender pressed another button and he said, “Mr. Delphiki, when will the engines be repaired?” Nikolai sounded almost out of breath when he spoke, “Sir, it will take about an hour to the impulse engines back online and about another hour for Trans-warp!” Ender grimly replied, “Well you are about to get more help very soon, so do your best.” Nikolai asked (puzzled), “Sir? Extra help?” Joachim said, “Sir, those ships that Lt. Colonel Ramirez mentioned have arrived.” On the main viewer they saw various shuttlecraft size ships flying towards them or at the Iron Men suits that drifted lifelessly about the Endeavor and retrieved them. Ender turned to Joachim and said, “Mr. Weiss, notify the shuttle bay that the incoming ships have permission to land and have security there to escort them to sickbay to help with the wounded or to non vital areas of the ship to help with repairs.” Joachim nodded and replied, “Yes sir.” Ender sat back in his chair and called out, “Casualty report?” Petra stated somberly, “15 dead, two missing and 44 injured.” Ender said, “Thank You commander, do you have a location on where that transmission came from?” Silence and Ender looked over to see Petra just staring down at her console and he spoke aloud “Commander!” She nodded and looked up and exclaimed, “Yes sir! I know where its coming from!” Silence, and Ender looked at her with a puzzled expression and asked, “And?” Petra coldly replied, “Sir, it’s the Battle School, or was.”

Ender stood up and hurriedly walked to Petra’s station and looked over her shoulder and saw, on one of the monitors, the Battle School orbiting on the other side of what was Hegemon. He then noticed some lettering on the side of one of its structures and he pointed at it and said, “Zoom in on that.” Petra pressed a button and the monitor zoomed in to make the wording more distinguishable as it read “Ministry of Colonization” Ender grimly spoke, “Not a Battle School anymore.” Petra replied, “It appears so.” He walked away and assumed his command chair but Petra spoke up, “Captain?” Ender looked back at her and asked, “Yes commander?” Petra asked, “What’s our policy when we docked with the Ministry of Colonization?” Ender stated, “Only essential personnel is allowed and must travel in teams of three and those that are coming from the station must be escorted by a security guard at all times and are not allowed in vital areas of the ship, including main engineering.” He looked over at the rest of the bridge crew and called out, “Remember!” They all looked at him and Ender continued, “We must follow the Prime Directive!” Petra left her station and stood close to Ender and spoke lowly, “Are we violating the Prime Directive already?” Ender replied the same, “We came to their aid when Julian and Khan were already interfering and we’ve done all that we could to not make it worse.” Petra replied, “Yes sir.” But before she turned away Ender said, “Commander, I want you to access their database and see if you can find anything about Dr. Volescu.” Petra looked at him concerned and said, “Yes sir, but why?” Ender replied, “I don’t know, but I believe you will find out.” And Petra walked away to her station as Ender remained in his chair and pondered his thoughts as he looked grim.

Kimberly K: This was a very exciting story. I wasn't able to figuratively "put the book down" until I finished it.
