EQ's padd dinged.  A program he had left running had finally loaded.  "Mind if I use a terminal" he asked.

Then he turned and logged in.  Technology was great.  He could work from just about anywhere on the ship.

As his machine came to life, he noticed an alert on his virtual board.  A ship had been detected.  "Damit" he muttered.

"So much for vacation, Buddy.  We got company" he said to Alex.  Then he tapped his com badge.  -/\-EQ to Command Staff on duty.  We have a ship that just appeared out of no where.  What are your orders-/\- he said.

"Contact your ship here, now!"

Nevir stayed silent, but complied, hailing the Discovery.  He held no look while the connection was established, and Nevir was shown with a rifle to his head and a Kazon holding him.

"This is Namok of the Kazon-Ogla.  We have your crew.  Surrender your ship, or we will start executing them one by one.  Failure to comply will incur the wrath of Maje Ralak."

EQ was not senior staff.  But he did hear the call for Red Alert.  "Gotta go" he said apologetically to Alex.

And then he turned and head back to his quarters.  He dropped his bag.  Then did a quick change into his uniform.

[Bridge]

Minutes later,  he emerged on the Bridge.  He got seated just before the Kazon's face appeared.  But he wasted no time, he logged in and started pushing power the defenses, weapons, and scanners. 

Then he turned to T'Ra.  He recognized her.  But he did not expect her to be sitting in the central chair.  He kept his composure and turned slight back to the view screen.

[NPC Post: Lieutenant Luchico]

[Bridge]

Why she hadn't chosen to pack earlier, she had no idea, but Luchico found herself once again running back onto the bridge due to the red alert instead of getting inebriated on the planet below. Once she saw the viewscreen though, Marie realized she had been fortunate. Going straight to the helm station and logging back on, she turned to report in and let out a slight yelp of surprise.

"Uh...Captain?" Luchico quickly composed herself, although she was still confused as to who the unfamiliar Vulcan was sitting in the command seat. I guess Kirok really did leave on the Lirpa. I wonder why. "Our warp core was taken offline for maintenance, I can only give you full impulse until it's back up."

"Nothing in the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity. The hottest place in Hell is reserved for those who remain neutral in times of great moral conflict." -MLK, Jr.

EQ did not hear his name, but he knew T'Ra was talking to him.  He started tapping in commands.  "Scanning" he said.

He station dinged a moment later.  "No other ships within scanning distance.  But we have a few blind spots" he reported.

"Behind the moon and on the opposite side of the planet" the liberated borg explained.  They could send out probes to determine that one way or another.  But the Kazon may interpret that as shots fired.  So it was the Captain's call.

EQ turned to Wu.  He had just been down in Main Engineering.  So he had some information to provide.

"Alex Campball is currently down in Engineering.  He may be able help get the warp core back on line quicker.  If not, we have phasers and shields if needed" he added.

[Ilandria: Ilandrian Gardens]

Awen waited, hoping to hear something back from the Discovery, but no response came. At least not yet. Of course, if the Kazon were on the planet, it stood to reason that they had a ship in orbit too. It could be that the Discovery was in combat with them, or at least speaking with them. That would explain the delay in response.

Holding the communicator up close to his lips so he could whisper, Alex keyed the badge. =/\="Fala, this is Wu. Stay hidden, I'm going to try and get to y-"=/\= Startled by a snapping twig, he spun around midsentence, fast enough to comprehend the riflebutt coming towards his face but not quick enough to block it. Merde! Was the only appropriate thought before a flash of pain erupted through his head, and blackness followed.

The Bajoran froze in place as she heard Alex's voice. She heard a twig snap, both through his communicator and somewhat nearby. Glancing over, she watched as one of the Kazon hit Alex with his gun, knocking him out. Awen winced at the sight, but as she watched, two more Kazon joined the first. If it had just been the one, she might have been able to subdue him and rescue Alex...three was a bit much for just her, though, especially considering the weapons they had.

Staying low, Awen quickly and quietly moved back from the outer shrubberies. She looked around cautiously as she moved back towards the walled garden. It was likely the Kazon were sweeping the area, so she really needed a good place to hide if she wanted to avoid being captured.

The Bajoran didn't see the entrance on this side of the wall, so she quietly advanced to the next corner, peeked around some ivy, and moved when she saw the coast was clear. A sense of relief washed over her as she saw the doorway and slipped inside.

The stone walls surrounded a lovely garden with three bubbling fountains, flowers, plants, more shrubberies, trees, benches, and a pond. Glancing around, Awen found a tree that was growing close to the wall, with a branch low enough that she could climb it. She moved quickly and quietly over to it, jumped and grabbed onto the lowest branch, and adjusted her grip to be more secure. Twisting her body as she pulled, she managed to get one leg hooked over the branch and then the other.

Pausing to look up, she found a couple more branches she could get to and began climbing further up. Partway up, Awen stopped and moved close to the tree trunk. This would have to be good enough for now. She tapped her comm badge and spoke quietly, =A=Fala to Discovery. Kazon have taken Commander Wu and others. I'm currently hiding to try to avoid being discovered and watching what happens. Will report back in when I have more information. Please avoid contact unless necessary so I don't get exposed.  Fala out.=A=

On the one hand, she really would have preferred to hear back from the ship... On the other, they could try contacting her right when more Kazon showed up and her advantage, slim as it was, would be gone. From her vantage point, she tried to get a better look at what was happening...

[Planet - Admin Building]

Nevir held onto a straight face, but he was grinning as his captor got more and more upset at the fact that there were images on the screen, but the Captain had muted herself.  The Kazon went as far as shouting at her, but there was no sound, or even acknowledgement that she heard him.

That earned Nevir a pinch as the head Kazon grabbed his collar, yanking him up to his face.  "Does your captain care so little of your life?  Or her's?  I demand you make her answer me."

Nevir said nothing, but the Kazon didn't need an answer.  He looked down at the collar he was holding.  Three solid pips.  That chacotay officer also had three... that must mean...

The Kazon gave a slick grin.  "This will be even better.  You will give me control of your ship, or I will destroy it."

Nevir raised an eye.  "Has that demand ever actually worked?"

The Bajoran was thrown to the ground and the rifle was back pointed at his head.  He gave a defiant look, before the Kazon grabbed him and dragged him to a backroom.  As he was being pulled in, another Kazon showed up.

"Sir!  We found another one, we're bringing him in."

"Excellent.  Inform the Maje.  Let him know the Federation is being uncooperative."

"Aye, Captain" EQ replied.  He had already prepped for this outcome.  So he was able to deliver with a simple tap of a button.

Three probes launched.  They came out pointing away from the Kazon.  So they would be considered an act of way even by the most difficult of species.

"Probes away, Ma'me.  I should have readings for you soon" the liberated Borg said.  Then he looked back up at the screen.

It was unwise to act until they had more information on who they were dealing with. T'Ra knew she had to stall for time, but as the Kazon dragged her first officer into another room, movement in the side of the picture caught her eye. Another Kazon approached, and though the channel was muted, she could read his lips. They had another officer. It had to be Wu.

"Is it feasible to begin beaming people back up?" she asked the bridge crew. There were so many factors to consider.

EQ considered the question.  "With shield up, Ma'me.  It would be near impossible.  Unless we can get away from the Kazon ship, out of their weapons range.  Then we could try it" the liberated borg said.

Hearing phaser fire and the resultant screams, LK immediately fell on the ground, sidling toward a copse of trees. Just as she rolled to a stop, she realized she still had her uniform on. Her type 1 phaser was tucked into the small pouch at the back of her slacks.

A rustling and a swish sounded above her. Looking up, Lt. Reede saw the bottom of a boot disappear as it flung itself over a tree branch. Squinting, she glimpsed the profile of the Bajoran science officer. They'd never formally met, but they'd been in the same briefings together. Well, if she can do it, I can, too. Taking a deep breath, LK carefully looked around, noting the beautiful scenery that she didn't have time to fully appreciate. At least she didn't see any enemies. She stood, crouched and thrust herself up onto the same branch ensign Alway had climbed on. Away? Awen? Oh, well, I'll find out soon enough.

Sitting on the branch, keeping her balance by placing her fingertips on the trunk of the tree, she touched her comm badge opening a personal channel. Then she whispered, =/\= Reede to Awen. I'm below you. Do you have a plan? =/\=

Hope I got her name right.

EQ had offered his opinion.  So, he turned back to his duty station.  It dinged.

"Probes are starting to provide information.  I'll have something in a minute" he said.  Hopefully this would be the one time luck was on their side and there were no other enemy ships in the area.
