Chapter 4

The barrier was lighted blue and once the door unlocked the door exploded and the blue beam hit Lilith and the mask vanished as it was incinerated and a contorted face appeared as the rest of Lilith vanished in the light and exploded and the beam vanished as white and red debris from Lilith and the cross it was on flew around and dropped in a large pool of LCL leaving only the lances as they fell in the LCL and vanished beneath as the lights in the room died out. Outside the beam from the Challenger’s deflector dish vanished and the deflector dish had no light and the Challenger remained in position over and in front of NERV not moving as various aircraft from SEELE came in and stopped all of the sudden surrounding the pyramid complex. The alarms in Central Dogma turned off including the sprinkler system all around the complex, Gross (voice over the PA), “Captain Valkyrie, Lilith is destroyed and we received word from Starfleet that they notified the world leaders about SEELE and their military forces are at our disposal.”, Michael pressed a few buttons, Michael, “Copy that commander. Find the location of Ritsuko Akagi and beam her to the brig.”, Gross (voice), “Yes sir, we have her location now. Looks like she is trying to erase files connecting her to Ikari and Lilith but we already have the copies of her records thanks to Arsenal hacking into the system.”, Michael, “Good. I’ll wrap things up here before beaming back, Valkyrie out.”, Maya, “Are we under arrest too?”, Michael, “No. You were all doing your jobs but your former director deceived you all and used you for personal gain while keeping other interest parties like SEELE at bay using you. For now I advise you all go home and wait till Starfleet contacts you to conduct a background check before resuming your duties.”, Makoto, “Will it take long?”, Michael, “When I go back I’ll ask.”, Michael pressed the same call button, Michael, “Bridge beam the weapons I’m carrying back on board.”, he set the guns and ammo down and they dematerialized leaving the others in shock, Maya, “What was that?”, Michael, “It’s called a transporter. You’ll see once Starfleet comes and sends personnel and representatives to help you rebuild.”, Michael, Misato and the others left Central Dogma.

Outside the complex after going through the security checkpoint and two older women rematerialized, woman, “Captain Valkyrie?”, Michael, “Yes?”, woman, “I’m Representative Toal Kum, this is my aide. Starfleet sent me here as a representative to this planet and is interested of having it join the United Federation of Planets.”, Misato, Maya and the other two looked puzzled, Michael, “Already sent a representative and want this planet to join already? That is kind of fast.”, Toal, “The Farragut and two other starships brought me here and were brought up to speed about this NERV and the situation. The Federation decided to use this base as a forward command center in The Borderlands region of space and watching over the Klingons. We also heard about Gendo Ikari and Starfleet is notifying all outposts, star bases and allied planets to keep a sharp lookout.”, Michael, “Don’t bother Satan has him and I would advise you keep Misato Katsuragi and her colleagues here working at NERV based on their performance of defending this planet and operating systems and experience.”, Toal (after looking at them), “Fair enough, if they passed a background check and cleared from any involvement with Mr. Ikari.”, Michael, “Thank You.”, Toal, “Ritsuko on the other hand is in holding for her involvement as well as Gendo’s son Shinji.”, Misato, “Wait a minute if it wasn’t for him...”, others were also arguing, Michael, “Hey, hey, hey! Settle down!”, he turned back to Toal, Michael, “You can’t blame his son. He was in the dark too and he had no contact with his father till these incidents with the angels started and he disliked his father ever since. He even tried to run away a couple of times but was forced to come back.”, the others looked at him strangely, Misato, “How do you know all about this?”, Michael, “I’ll explain later.”, Toal, “I’ll discuss this with my superiors, but as of now he is to remain on the Challenger and in the brig till otherwise. Understood?”, Michael, “Yes ma’am.”, later they rematerialized in the transporter room with Maya and Shigeru in cowering positions. Makoto, “I have to say this is fascinating.”, Michael, “You think you like that, wait till you see your quarters.”, they left the transporter room and ran into Gross, Gross, “Sir we have regained standard orbit and all repairs are complete.”, Michael, “Excellent. Would you mind showing Misato and the others to their temporary quarters till Starfleet security comes by to do a background check and polygraph?”, Gross, “Yes sir, and Chloe wants to see you in your quarters.”, Michael, “Thank You commander. If you would follow my executive officer she will show to your rooms.”, they thanked him before they departed.
