I see, Chris commented.
I have a
solution to your little dilemma, Kailar stated. To
us, it is quite simple.
Chris stared at the image on the main view screen at a large circular structure. It was almost as if it was a gate.
We call it the Millennium Time Gate, Kailar stated. It can send a person or a ship any where, any time.
That name reminded Chris of the Millennium Gate on Earth, but he dismissed it for now. Youd be willing to let us use it, Chris asked, hopeful.
Of course, Kailar replied. This lifted Chriss spirits. But we do have one restriction on its use.
Chris looked at Kailar and asked, That being?
A person, or group of persons, can only use it once. Whether they succeed in their mission, or what ever the case. Even if they end up back in this place and time, they can not use it again. So if you fail, you will be destroyed. If you should succeed, we should think that you will end up back here, none of the events, not even the forty warships, will have occurred. Time will be restored.
Well, Chris said. I think we need to discuss this a little further before we even go back to do this thing, but well let you know.
Kailar nodded and said, I look forward to meeting you in person, Captain. Good day. With that, Kailar disappeared.
Did you notice how similar they are to Bajorans, though a little more peaceful, Sarah asked.
Chris nodded and
said, Yes, I did. That was exactly what Chris was
thinking. How ever, he ignored it for now. Senior officers
report to the briefing room again.
Though I think we should, it does go against the prime directive, in a way, Chris said to the senior officers. We shouldnt interfere with time.
But this is a unique situation, Tom commented. They traveled back in time to change time, so what we are trying to do is restore time.
My thoughts exactly, Chris commented.
I dont know about the rest of you, but I say lets do it, Sarah said.
Every one in the briefing room nodded in agreement.
But theres one other thing, Chris stated. We have another opportunity here we could also get home this way, and leave time the way it has been. It might be the only opportunity we have in a long time to get home.
I myself say we should do this thing, Sarah stated. We have a duty as Starfleet officers. We need to preserve the time line.
I agree, the ships security and tactical officer, Lieutenant Ada Marquet, stated. Plus Ive been looking for a some what challenging battle.
Yes, lets do this, Tom put in.
Any one object, Chris asked.
I think I speak for every one when I say, began Ada, Lets kick some Jem Hadar but!
Chris smiled at
her somewhat cheesy response, but didnt mind it, and
actually encouraged her enthusiasm. I know we havent
known each other for very long, but so far weve performed
very well, Chris commented. I know that we can do
So, I finally get to meet you, Chris commented to Kailar as they walked through the control station of the Millennium Time Gate. The technology was amazing. In person, Chris finished.
Kailar smiled and said, Im sorry I eavesdropped on your meeting, but we tend to enjoy helping other people with their problems. Unfortunately, this can cause some major battles with other species, though we try to avoid conflict, we are fully prepared in case of an attack.
Well, with the technology Ive seen so far, Chris began, Any one who tries to mess with this planet are in for some major punishment.
Actually, our weapons arent that advanced, except for a few, Kailar said. We do design weapons some times when others ask for them, and we do build some for ourselves, but we prefer not to design weaponry.
