Chapter 1

When Michael was being cleared through medical everyone on the ship (especially Chloe) expressed their joy and visited Michael in sickbay consistently, Chloe said, “How is your new skin?”, Michael flexed his arms and said, “Not bad, better than the one that was heavily radiated.”, Chloe said, “Michael, since you have been back you did not seem too distraught over what happened to your sister, are you sure you are all right?”, Michael smiled and said as he held her hand, “Yes I am. During my brief time I was officially dead I saw my sister and all I can say is she assured me she is okay and I should move on with my life. That is what I am doing now cause that is what my sister wanted.”, Chloe said, “What about your brother?”, Michael said, “Even though he killed her she said she saw good in him only that I alone must try to bring that out of him and set him free.”, Chloe looked confused and said, “Free?”, Michael said, “She says the reason why he is acting the way he is because he is still trying to impress his parents and brainwashed by his time he spent with them while we were gone and it is my duty to bring him back to reality and show him the truth.”, Crow (sighing with grief) as he came in and said, “How am I supposed to clear you before we reach home when people keep coming in to see you?”, Michael, “Doctor I need to speak to Arsenal privately. If you don’t mind,,” Crow (sarcastically and threw his hands in the air before leaving) said, “oh yeah sure! Private meetings, no problem! Make your recovery take longer!”, Michael tried to keep himself from laughing as he left as did Chloe as she kissed him. Once Arsenal left Crow entered, Crow said, “Now if there is any no more inter...”, there was a beep sound and Michael turned on the monitor next to him to show Tu, Tu said, “Sir we have an incoming transmission from Starfleet, priority one.”, Michael said, “I’ll take it here Lt.”, Crow throws his hands up and grabs his own hair yelling in disgust as he walked out again. Once he finished talking to Starfleet Michael called Arsenal, Chloe, Ender, Petra and Crow into sickbay to tell them what he was told, Michael said, “Starfleet wants us to observe a planet in the nearby star system called Terra II that is already launching space vehicles but only in the orbit of their own planet and have developed satellites and telescopes that could see beyond but up to this point Starfleet was able to mask all the habitable systems and passing ships from being detected.”, Chloe said, “So we are going to make first contact?”, Michael said, “No. Starfleet considers this system quarantined according to the Prime Directive and we are to avoid revealing our true identities at all costs.”, they all looked confused, Petra said, “So basically we are spies.”, Michael said, “In a sense yes.”, Chloe (sighed) said, “For how long?”, Michael said, “Till they call us back.”, Ender said, “Are we going with you as well?”, Michael said, “It’s your choice. I prefer you do unless you want to be spending most of your days as guinea pigs for Starfleet and Zhargosia trying to learn more from you.” Petra said, “Then we are coming.” Michael said, “Good, notify Gross of our new heading and tell her to set course to the largest planet in the system but on the far side away from Terra II. One of these days when we are not so busy you have to explain to me why and how you both were in that escape pod.” Ender kept himself from laughing and said, “don’t worry we will.” And they all left leaving Crow in peace.

The Challenger sat in orbit on the far side of the giant red planet that they called Jup with barely the planet Terra II in view as Michael entered the transporter room wearing a shirt that says “I Love Blue Suede” making the others look at him curiously as Chloe stood by him not caring, Carrie said, “Why are you wearing that?”, Michael was about to speak, Chloe said, “He is going to say to blend in and he likes there music so don’t bother.”, Michael (shocked) said, “What? I think their cool! Better than that late earth 90’s stuff or that Rhianna.,” Chloe (glared) said, “say one more bad word about Rhianna then you’re laying on the transporter pad!”, Michael made a fake scared look and looked nervously at her as they dematerialized. When they rematerialized they were beamed on a large grassy lawn with a mansion like house in the background. They turned to look and they saw the mansion and some of them looked astounded till a man in a suit walked up to Michael, man in suit said, “It’s all yours sir. Are you sure you can afford this?”, Michael said, “Dude this is tight! I thought a real estate developer like you would be ecstatic?”, real estate agent (nervously) said, “I will if you keep making your monthly payments,,” Michael said, “don’t worry it’s all taken care of.” And the agent walked away, Chloe said, “How much does this place cost?”, Michael said, “Why are you worried? Starfleet arranged all of this and will take care of any future expenses.” Chloe said, “Any?”, Michael said, “Any, so if we want to party it up it is on!”, and they both gave each other a high five. They walked into their new home that is already furnished, Michael said, “I have all your profiles for your new identities.”, Chloe said, “Do we have to change our names?”, Michael said, “Heck no, that would just make it too difficult.”, they all looked at their profile sheets as they were laid out in front of them on a table once inside the mansion and some of them cringed, Carrie said, “Do I really have to go back to high school?”, Michael said, “Starfleet believed that with the exception of that incident and a change to your profile that you are a highly intelligent student you can easily listen in to people’s conversations without attracting too much attention. Plus there is no local college so this is the only alternative.” Crow said, “Local doctor, this should be nice. Now I have to hear all the whines, moans, groans and complaints on injuries that I won’t even consider them as injuries.”, Ender said, “Me and Petra at a private school?”, Michael said, “Starfleet felt if they put both of you and Abby, Kurt, and Carrie in one school it would raise too much suspicion and this school has a militaristic type of setting so you both should feel at home!”, and he smiled but Ender and Petra did not look amused. Chloe, “Well I don’t know about my profile but this place needs better furnishing.” Everyone looked at her, Michael said, “How much furnishing are you talking about?”, Chloe said, “So far the whole house. I mean if we are going to stay here, possibly for awhile, we might as well get comfortable.”, Michael said, “And who will help you with this endeavor?”, Chloe said, “Carol and Arsenal since they don’t have a job or place outside here.”, Arsenal groaned and Michael slapped him on the back with an upset face, Michael said, “Sorry dude, but good luck! Especially in the clothing department!”, Arsenal slumped with his head down and everyone laughed.
