Portar, the Benzite scientist, emerged from the turbo lift. He quickly walked around the bridge looking over the shoulders of the on duty crewmen as he evaluated each of their efforts. He passed in front of Captain Dorra d’Hexplora before taking a seat beside her. He leaned towards her and said, “The experiment is ready. It’s time to begin, Captain. May we proceed?”


Fraps turned to the other members of the crew and asked, “Alright. What are the Captain’s orders?”

Yardo rose to his feet and walked over to Fraps and said, “We have a lot to do and only fifteen minutes to get all done. I’ll tell you on the way.” They hurried to the turbo lift. “Shuttle Bay One,” Yardo ordered. Once the doors closed, he tapped his combadge, “Yardo to Torpedo control, prepare two tricobalt devices for immediate deployment. Transport one to Shuttle Bay One, and install the Silithium core in the other before loading it into forward torpedo tube one.”

Fraps stared at Yardo with an expression of disbelief and mouthed the word, “Two?”

Yardo nodded as the armory officer responded over the comm, “Yes, sir.”

Yardo double tapped his combadge to close the channel and open a new one. “Yardo to sick bay.”

“Sick bay here.”

“Doctor, I need all of your medical scans of Mr. Portar transferred to Science Lab Three.”

“All of them?”

“The more data you can send there, the better it will be.”

“Very well. Transfer complete.”

Yardo double tapped his combadge to open another channel. “Yardo to Science Lab Three.”

Yardo, can you tell me why sick bay just sent over in depth medical records for Mr. Portar?”

“Yes, I can. I need to you set up a transporter test cylinder that exactly mimics those medical records. It needs to be able to fool all known sensor scans,” Yardo explained. “And, I need it in Shuttle Bay One in ten minutes.”

Bio-feed back in ten minutes? That’s impossible.”

“We only have ten minutes,” Yardo replied. “Finley’s and the Captain’s lives depend on it.”

“It’ll be there.”

The turbo lift doors opened up near Shuttle Bay One. “It better be. If it’s not, we’re going to have to send Portar, and the Captain wants to avoid that at all costs,” Yardo replied as he closed the channel. He stepped off the turbolift and started walking quickly with Fraps struggling to keep up. “Meanwhile, you and I have to reprogram the shuttle’s autopilot and navigation sensors.”

Between deep breaths, Fraps said, “I don’t think we’re going to have enough time.”

“Don’t blame me. You’re the one that said we can do it in fifteen,” Yardo criticized.

“Yah, but that was before I knew what she was telling us,” Fraps admitted. “I really need to practice my d’Drexian sign language.”

Yardo shot Fraps a quick, questioning glance. He would hold his tongue for now, since Fraps was technically in command – at least, until the Captain returned. He could save it until then.
