Cmdr. Darkon’s Log Star Date 27/10/17
I have asked B’hor & Lt.Cmdr. Falkenberg to go and get the body of the Jem’Hadar.
Lt. Fran grabs his head and starts yelling “GET IT OUT”“GET IT OUT” and D’Voraks grabs his phaser rifle and smacks Fran in the head and knocks him out.
Falkenberg contacts me and says that we are going to have an eclipse and that we are screwed. Falkenberg says get Fran to get more sulphur and I reply that he’s out, So he says get Freya to do it. I ask Ensign Anderson (Freya) to get more sulphur to collapse the doorway and she says that we don’t have enough rubble to close it again. Fran says that we can go into the tunnel and Freya says that we can collapse that and stand a better chance. B’Hor brings the Jem’hadar body in and I tell JC that we are going to collapse the tunnel entrance with us in it and that he better hurry.
JC contacts me and says that interference is electrical and its getting dark and he is going to say out just a little longer.
I ask Freya how much sulphur we need to collapse the entrance and she replies “enough to not blow us up!!”
Fran starts to scan the door and it solidifies where he is scanning, and it follows his scan where ever he goes. I pick up a rock and throw it away from where he is scanning, and the stone goes in the door about a quarter of the way in and stops, then slowly pops back out. Fran scans the stuff on the stone and finds that it is organic.
I have a stupid idea and say to Fran, "you scan this part of the door and I will push the arm of the Jem’hadar in and see what happens.
While Fran is scanning, I push the arm thru the door and it opens up to the size of the arm. I look thru and see fluro light and movement. I get D’Voraks to scan inside and he says there are Zandorian life signs inside.
JC contacts me and says that a local has popped up out of the sand and is calling him over. I as Apollo about the local and he says that they have tunnels all over the place.
All of a sudden the door closes chopping the arm off the dead Jem’Hadar and the door is now solid. I ask Freya how much sulphur would we need to blow a hole in this door and she says that we would die before that door opens.
I contact JC and ask if he is coming back and he says “NO”. I contact B’Hor and say we need to come into the tunnel and collapse the doorway now. B’Hor says “What about the Lt. Cmdr.” and I say “He will be OK!”
“Freya collapse the door” and the doorway comes down and we are all okay. Freya says “We have about 3 hours of air and I have enough sulphur left to blow the doorway open again.”
Fran is doing something with his tricorder and the door.. The door starts to shimmer and I say “What did you do?” and he says “I’m rewritting the organic code of the door to get it to open.” There is now stuff starting to drip. I give D’Voraks and Freya one of my pistols each and extra clips.
I try to put the other arm of the Jem’Hadar against the door to see if it will open and nothing happens. I then put my hand up close to the door and can feel heat coming off of it. I pick a rock and toss it against the door and the same thing happened as before and the rock falls out, but now the door starts dripping from that spot.
Fran suggests that I throw more rocks at different spots and I say “How about D’Voraks, Freya and myself all throw rocks at different spots?” and Fran says “That should help.”
The door starts to collapse up in the top corner where Fran is scanning and says “About 5 mins. and the door will be down.” I say wee need a distraction and suggest we use a phaser set on overload but that would be a BIG explosion and Fran says “Use my phaser as it half used/drained” and i say “OK”
Freya throws the phaser and fumbles it and drops it on the ground, D’Voraks sees this and uses the but of his phaser rifle to smash it thru the opening before it hit the floor. It goes in and explodes. D’Voraks runs in by jumping of the wall and thru the door and Freya and I follow. NOTE TO SELF… I NEED TO CARRY GRENADES AND FLASHBANGS WITH ME AT ALL TIMES.
D’Voraks yell “CLEAR” and we all go in. Fran scans for lifesigns and says there is nothing here except for us.
I give Fran my tricorder as his is nearly depleted. I get everyone else to power down their tricorders and phasers, and ask B’hor and the General about their disruptors, and they says that they are about 1/2 power and then power them down as they will go hand to hand.
I say to D’Voraks “We check room by room” and get to the first door, Freya is looking down the corridor. D’Voraks and I bust into the first room and find it empty. All the cupboard doors open manually (no electronics at all)
I check the bedside table and find a black onyx box that is locked. I contact Fran and ask him to check the Zandroian kid has a key , he looks and does not find one. I ask D’Voraks if he is any good at picking locks and he says “YES”. He picks the lock and we open it and find a cylinder with a vile of Zandorian Blood in it.
I call Fran in to scan the vile and it comes back as pure strain of a virus.
D’Voraks and Freya go and check a few other rooms and find nothing of interest. Freya says that she has found uniforms of scientists but are all the same ranks as the military side.
While Freya is showing us the uniforms, General Chang is standing next to me and I say “General.. What’s worn?”“You are brooding” and he says "The Zandorian boy deserves to die with honour and go to Stovokor (or the Zandorian version). Just then Fran comes out and closes the door off and I ask “What are you doing?” and he says “Cmdr. stay away.. the Zandroain boy is infected with the virus that is in the vile or something like it”
D’Voraks calls out “FUCK ME… Sir, you need to see this” HE NEVER CALLS ME SIR… EVER
I go over to see what it is. I say “What is it?” and he just points into a room. So I have a look. The room has 5 cells in it and each cell is occupied.
1st cell has a native woman (in night beast/vampire mode).
2nd cell has a marine looking off into the distance.
3rd cell has a Jem’Hadar (dead, body ripped apart).
4th cell has a pirate??? (looking normal).
5th cell has a humanoid in it (completely blue).
The people who can look at us can and the pirate looks at me with an evil look. I go back outside and call Apollo up and put him in the room so the pirate can see him. The pirate says “Apollo, your alive!!” and Apollo says “Fuck me.. It’s Duncan”“You’re alive too!!!” “These guys found me and they are going to get the rest of us off the planet.” He then looks around and sees the rest of the cells and the color drains from his face.
Fran comes in to grabs Apollo and takes him out of the room, I go outside as Duncan has “Lit up like a Christmas Tree”when Fran walked in and starts to bash on the cell door and i hear bone breaking and there is blood everywhere. I call out “Duncan… calm down” and he just stops and becomes calm again.
I want to scan him with a medical tricorder and stuff it up, then Freya gives it a try and she stuffs it. Fran decides to do it himself, and Duncan goes nuts again and Fran holds his own for a bit then gets pushed back. Duncan is getting more and more angry so I overload a phaser and drop it into the cell and “BOOM!!!”.
Fran says that “Duncan” had Zandorian powers, like Sub-Cmdr. powers and could leave the cell anytime he wanted but chose to stay in there. I say "The Sub-Cmdr. has transferred his consciousness to “Duncan” That’s What I Think Anyway
I look at the blue guy in the cell and ask him does he have a name and he nods. I say “I am Cmdr. Brett Darkon of the United Federation of Planets and an Officer in Starfleet” and the blue guy just puts up both hands. I say “What does that mean?”
I ask the blue guys “Are you infected?” and he shakes his head in a no movement. Fran asks him “Are you a native of this planet?” and again he shakes his head.
I say to Fran, can you telepathicly link with him.. and say to the blue guy that we want to try a link with him telepathicly, and he holds up his hand to the hole and I open it and his hand comes out. Fran scans it and didn’t find anything.
I reach out and touch the blue guys hand and i get an explosion in my brain of color and light. I see a beautiful city of all blue people, then that changes to Zandorian ships attacking and blue people in pods with tubes connected to them draining stuff from them. I then see another view of a Zandorian and he turns around and it is a Sub-Cmdr.
I break the link to “BOB” and explain to everybody what I saw. “BOB” shows us a device implanted into his upper chest which has a spot to connect a tube to.
Fran says to “BOB” "Are the Zandroian using your psychic ability to enhance their sub-commanders and “BOB” puts his hand back thru the hole and this time Fran touches it and has a vision.
Fran comes back from his vision and tells us what he saw. I sat to “BOB” “Do you want payback?” and he shakes his head, I then say “Do you want off this planet?” and he nods his head, So I say “Will you help us help you?” and he nods his head. I start to open the door and D’Voraks says “Do you think this is wise?” and I say “They were harvested for their abilities and oppressed” and D’Voraks was just about to say something and I say “Just like the Bajorans were with the Cardassians” and he stops and walks away. Freya says after a bit “Well then” COURAGE POINT AWARED BY THE GM :)
I blow up the native beast/vampire woman and then talk to the marine. I ask D’Voraks if he knows his rank and D’Voraks says that he is “Gunnery SGT. Larson.” We have a Discussion about how we are going to put him out of his pain and I ask the General if he would use his disruptor and do it. Fran is worried that Larson will feel the pain and Chang says it will be set high enough that he will disintergrate instantly. I walk over to the cell and say “Gunny”, he looks at me “We cannot save you as you are infected and the only way for us to help you is to put you out of your pain.” He nods his head in agreeance. He tries to stand to attention and salute and I say " The Federation and the Marine Corps thank you for your service". Chang takes aim with his disruptor, fires and misses, he takes aim again and fires and Gunny Larson disintergrates, and Chang’s disruptor is empty.
Personal note, once we are back on the AIRWOLF, I will compose letters of condolence to the families of Specialist Chen and Gunnery SGT. Larson and any other marines we don’t bring back.
