Chapter 1

Gabriel said, “Captain’s Log star date 2338.4. Since our departure from Ka’Tula we proceeded into uncharted space where the Romulan Neutral Zone is two sectors on our starboard side. Our mission, to see if there are any civilizations that live close to the Neutral Zone and if possible establish a starbase to extended our defense and make sure the Romulans won’t try to maneuver around the Federation’s defenses. Before we left we picked up two people that have been temporarily assigned to the Yorktown to monitor the engines and the ship’s capabilities on its first voyage. Saji and Louise Crossroad are our new heads of engineering as well as the President and Vice President of Crossroad Industries where they are the ones that installed our new warp engines. On the side note some of our crew especially Commander Law are stressed from recent events and are starting to affect some of the crew.” Gabriel stood from his chair, stretched and said, “Man I forgot what its like being a captain.” Law was looking at her scanner and replied sarcastically, “Maybe we should change jobs.” Gabriel said, “No, I’m fine where I am. I’m going to engineering and see how our new Chief Engineer is doing. You have the bridge Commander.” Law did not look up and replied, “Yes sir.” Gabriel stepped into the turbo lift and the doors closed just as Law approached the center chair.

When the turbo lift doors opened Gabriel stepped out and walked down the corridor towards engineering as he smiled at a couple of female crew members who looked away blushing at his sight and whispered to each other as he passed. Gabriel was halfway to engineering till he stopped, snapped his fingers and said to himself, “Forgot to bring Saji my special coffee.” He turned around and headed back towards his quarters. The doors to his quarters opened and Gabriel stepped in and turned his desk light on when suddenly he saw a female with blue skin, yellow eyes and short red hair standing next to his bed with a look of shock on her face. Gabriel looked at her with a calm expression in silence as the doors closed behind him. He looked at her closely as her face looked familiar and then he tried to keep himself from showing his shock when he said, “Commander Law?” Silence and Gabriel said, “We need to talk.” Suddenly she threw a potted plant from the table to her left at Gabriel and he dodged it quickly as it smashed against the wall behind him but Jen kicked Gabriel in the chest, fell and slammed his back against the wall as he fell to the floor. Jen ran to the door but Gabriel immediately slammed his hand on the button next to him and locked the door as Jen was upon it but didn’t open. Gabriel lunged at her but Jen grabbed his shoulders and jumped over his outstretched arms and landed on the small of his back knocking him straight to the deck as he yelped in pain. Before he could get up she grabbed his back and threw him at his bed where he bounced off and landed on the deck on the opposite end. He looked up over the bed with a look of shock and frustration and Jen ran and slid across the bed and maneuvered around Gabriel’s outstretched hands and locked her legs around his and her arms around his armpits locking her hands behind his neck and pulled his limbs back as he fell to the floor.

Gabriel struggled and said, “Jen this is highly irregular!” Jen replied, “That is not my name.” She yanked back and there was a bone popping sound as Gabriel yelped, but suddenly Gabriel yelled, yanked his limbs from the blue woman’s grip (to her surprise), grabbed one of her arms and flipped her over till she landed hard on her back. Gabriel calmly said, “Then who are you?” The blue woman replied, “Mystique.” She then flipped and kicked Gabriel in the face and he fell back on the wall and on the floor as he yelled in pain as Mystique landed on her feet. Gabriel shoved his right hand in between the mattresses as Mystique turned and pulled out his phaser as she reached towards him and he fired. A blue energy bolt struck Mystique dead center and she flew back, hitting the wall and slid down onto the floor not moving. Gabriel grunted and stood up and said, “Out of all the women I have dated I got to pick the one that tries to kill me.” He put the phaser in his belt and picked her up and laid her on the bed. He sat behind his desk, looking past the grated barrier between his desk and Mystique lying unconscious on the bed and he said to himself, “All right brother, what would you do with an attractive blue woman trying to kill you?” A few moments later Gabriel smirks and laughs at himself quietly and said, “To hell with it.” And he turns around, turns on his monitor and began to type.
