John woke up his head hurt from the night before his drinking his half bottle of wiskey really did him in this time he looked around the small cabin.

"At least there is No Communcation Devices around here" Finished John as he climbed out of his cot and walked to the kitchen table there looking at him was the Bottle of Wiskey he wanted to drink that up but then John just wanted the pain to leave him..........

"If only I chosen better she would still be here" Finished Brown to himself as he walked opening the fridge once there he looked blanky at the half eaten pulled Pork and bits of Meat he brought his hand in and took out left over Steak Brown might have enjoyed the Bottle but he was'nt a complete drunk he placed the cold steak on the table and started eating he looked over at his Fishing Rod and tackle he knew that he needed to find food for the rest of the day.

Samantha walked along the trail leading to John and Kristi's cabin, she'd been there a couple of times with her late Sister, usually just for girl time and once on a nature lovers weekend to watch the inherent wildlife.  Those days were gone, lost forever with her Sister, thanks to those Dominion Demons who'd caused so much misery.

It was a warm day and the birds were singing, what little breeze there was felt wonderful against her face.  The old trail hadn't changed much since her last visit, flora overhung the edges and took away any sort of clear cut pathway.  A golden winged butterfly flew across in front of Lance, causing her give a wide smile to the small creature.  It fluttered off to one side and disappeared into the tree's somewhere. 

The place was wonderful, like something from the old times and not corrupted by the advancement of technologies.  She could totally see the appeal to being out there, it was a long way from civilisation and normality.  No doubt that was why her Brother in Law was there, trying to hide himself from what had happened.

Sam stopped short of the cabin and stood in silence for a moment, the last time she'd visited was also the last time she'd seen her Kristi.  A memory stirred of her being chased by John, into the small opening at the front of the cabin.  She was laughing and her long strawberry blonde hair was trailing behind her.  She was such an happy person and had everything to live for, particularly hers and John's little boy, Steven.  Steven being one of the main reason's she was there, the boy needed his Father and was constantly asking where he was and deducing that he was hiding in the mountain cabin.  He was a very perceptive child for 9 years old, very intelligent like his Mother was, as his Father could be at times.

Lance breathed in through her nose and out through her mouth, balling her hands into fists before walking towards the door and entering.  She was greeted with John's back, he was looking into the fridge and the place smelt like a dump site.  Brown turned towards her, though his attention seemed to fix on the fishing rod near the door.

"Well well, I love what you have done with the place."  She said taking a chair and snagging it under the door handle to keep it open and let clean air in.  She then turned back to John and put her hands on her hips, waiting for his response.

John was startled out of his thoughts he looked and there she was Kristi's sister Samantha he looked at her for moments that seemed like days.

John tried to open his mouth and speak but his troat was dry she was the spitting image of Kristi it cause his to hesate as he looked at her and it brought back the memory of Kristi's death and it came flooding back.

"What you doing here Samantha thought you were out there exploring" Finished John solomley

Sam noticed the flinch in John, once he'd actually noticed her presence, clearly his senses were not at full capacity.  Her eyes moved towards the table and spotted the whiskey bottle, they then moved back towards John accusingly.  She narrowed her left eye, a sign of her being angered.  Apparently he'd thought she was still on her deep space assignment, which she would have been if it hadn't been for Steven.

"Well I would have been, if it hadn't been for Steven and a letter from your parents."  She fished the small padd she had from her pocket and held it up so he could see it.  "He's asking after you John, he's already lost his Mother, do not let him lose his Father as well."  She shook her head and noticed a photograph hanging on the wall, her heart sank,

Sam nodded towards the picture of Kristi, it had clearly been taken in the cabin and she looked so happy.  "She would not have wanted this."

John looked at her as she spoke the words his eyes whiced in pain as he sighed.

"Well How can I Kristi you know damm well why......There he stoped he called her Kristi he walked past her and slumped in the leather chair and looked at her Picture his eyes turned wet but he held back the tears.

"Sorry....Just you look so much like her" Finished John brokenly then looking at her he knew she was'nt going to leave

"If you knew what I done you too will be like your Father and say that I deserve to be in prison" John voice trailed off as his put his head into his hands

Sam's eyes widened when he called her Kristi, for a moment she wondered about his mental state, but then it was common for people to mistake her for her late Sister.  In fact it was annoying at times, people seldom mistook Kristi for Samantha.  Being that Kristi was the better looking, was probably why people mistook her.  John apologised for the mistake and carried on in his self loathing whirlwind of self pity.

The latter comment caused a confused frown though.  "Oh and what is it?  That is so bad you reckon my Dad thinks you belong in prison?  Come on do enlighten me John please."  Her arms folded across her chest and her expression was one of agitation.

The latter comment caused a confused frown though.  "Oh and what is it?  That is so bad you reckon my Dad thinks you belong in prison?  Come on do enlighten me John please."  Her arms folded across her chest and her expression was one of agitation.

John leaned back in the Leather chair he looked at her for a moment His eyes where heavy in pain he looked at her he knew she would'nt give up until she knew.

"Your Father a Smart Man as you know he found out the truth then confronted me about it after the memorial you wern't in the Room so you did'nt see the fire in his Eyes" Finished John as he looked at Kristi in his mind he said Kristi give me strength.

"Kristi messaged me on Subspace and we talked, the Essex was due to head to Betazead and finaly Earth to transfer needed Medical supplys to prepare for the Final Push in Cardassian Space I had Leave available and she wanted me on the Essex" John stated as he looked at her Picture "She begged me to come but I would'nt we were on Stand By for the Final Push to Cardassia Prime I could'nt tell her that Most of the Fleet was being repostioned in preperation" Brown looked down on the ground "I knew that it was possabile that they were a few Cardassian Vessels moving closer to the Core worlds we were leaving out Lines open to make the Push Ross and Sisko were sure that if this Operation worked it would End the War" John looked at her "I knew she would have been attacked once the Cardassian's saw a lone Starfleet Ship they would be done for but I did'nt tell her I could have warned her got her Off the Essex but my wanting to follow Stupid Regulations I did'nt tell her" Finished Brown

John eyes were now welling he looked at her as tears started to flow down his face he took a breath then spoke.

"She was attacked, then we were the Closest Ship I swear I made sure the Ship flew apart then once we got there the Ship was falling apart I was 20 meters from Kristi when the EPS Grid started to overload in Sickbay, She Sealed the Deck and Activated a Quarantine to Stop me to get there to override my Commands to open the Hatch she Died cause I cared too much of a Operation then to take care of my Wife!" Brown stated looking at her "You Father learned what Happened and called me a Murderer, so you see this is what I deserve this is my penence for doing the most evil crime" John Finished

Samantha leaned back against the nearest wall, her arms were still folded as John replied.  Her eyes dropped to the floor at the mention of her Father and how he'd confronted Brown at the memorial.  She looked back at him, when he explained about a message from Kristi, she'd told him about a trip to Betazed with supplies.  Then there was a mention of leave, which was odd, that caused a confused scowl.  Apparently Kristi had begged him to go along, but he was on stand by for the final push of Cardassia.  He'd been unable to tell her about the push, no doubt due to the possibility of the enemy intercepting transmissions.  That was a known tactic in any war, right back to the twentieth century at least.  He knew it was possible that Dominion ships were in Federation space and closing on the core worlds, again it was a war.  He said he knew the Essex would be attacked, if an enemy ship saw them and that he could have warned her but didn't.

"John I think you're jumbling things up a little, we all acted as though there were enemy ships near us, it was the best way to keep alert in the field."  She shook her head with some disbelief, he was accusing himself of something he wanted to do but couldn't, but apparently believed it was possible.  "John nobody was allowed to take leave, I don't understand why you think you could have, we were at war weren't we?"  She reached up and brushed back a lose strand of her blonde hair.  "You couldn't have warned her, regulations and all that.  How many people do you think are out there now, who could have done something and didn't, which ended badly for them?"  She raised her eyebrows and stared at him for a moment.  "I can tell you, it is most likely a hell of a lot.  If you had contacted her and say the enemy had intercepted the message, well chances are the Essex would still have been attacked."  Sam gave a slight shrug and held her hands out and wondered if he understood.

John began to reference the actual attack and that his ship was the closest, if memory served he was the Exec on the USS Exeter.  They'd reached the attack site and managed to send aid to the USS Essex, when an EPS grid blew and from what she knew Kristi and John were separated.  Her Sister made the decision to seal off the deck and essentially saved lives at the cost of her own.  Sam had seen the official report too.  "No John you did what you had to, what she expected you to and she did what she had to do regardless of the dangers."  Brown once again talked about her Father and that he'd called John a murderer.  "Yes I heard him."  She said looking down at the wooden floor.  "But you've got to remember, we were all upset and emotions were running very high and you..."  Samantha swallowed and looked up again, her right eye was dampening and a tear escaped down her cheek.  "People just need to vent and let out their anger on someone, he does regret it being you though John."  She reached up and wiped away the tear.  "He blames the Dominion, not you, he loves you like a Son."

John looked at her with eyes heavy with sadness he looked back at the picture of Kristi for a moment looking at her he then looked down at the floor.

"But we could have traded I was at the Hatch with her......John clenched his fists then looked at her "We could have traded places but she wouldn't let me it she stopped me" Finished Brown then looking at her for taking a breath

"How could it not be my fault I could have suggested for her to come to me but I didn't the last time we spoke we argued over me not taking leave to be with her and I ended the Communcation and she died thinking I was angry with her she dos'nt know how I really felt" Finished Brown

Sam reached up and pinched the bridge of her nose, she took a deep breath before looking back at John.  He was clearly not seeing things properly.  "The EPS grid blew and you got separated John, according to the official reports there was no time for her to get out.  The only one with any chance of escaping, was you."

"If you'd tried to swap places, then in all likelihood Steven would now be an orphan.  She couldn't get out, that's why she did what she did."  Sam stamped towards the door, frustration was building up inside, John was being downright pig headed and wouldn't open his eyes.  She stopped in the doorway and observed the forest for a moment.  "Regret is one of the first things to hit us when someone we love dies."  She turned and faced Brown again, her face had a stone like expression.  "You have no idea what she felt?  You asshole John, she sacrificed herself to save you and for Steven to have a parent.  If that isn't love then I have no dammed idea what is."

John listened to her with every word it hit him like a slap he looked at the Picture as he mind started to clear he looked at Kristi's Picture he looked at it for what seem like moments.

"I....." John tried to say then he clamed up as his mind was flodded with memories of the rescue though to the memoral and down to the last Five months living in the Cabin he then looked down at his hand and looked at the Wedding ring still on his finger he saw it the small scraches in the medal a single tear when down his face.

"How could I been so Blind; I wasted Five Months of my life for selfish reasons how could I be a father to him or face him that I failed him for so long when he needed me the most" John stated looking at Samantha

Samantha rolled her eyes and looked away from John, though he was beginning to get the message about the time he'd wasted there.  But then it began again, crap about him failing Steven was the new trend.  Yes he had been selfish, hiding from his responsibilities to the boy. 

"You haven't failed him, otherwise he wouldn't be asking for his Daddy.  If you don't pick yourself up soon, then you will not only fail him, but you will let Kristi's death be in vain."

John nodded then looked at the Picture of Kristi then leaning forward in the Chair he looked around the Cabin and saw what happened to it.

"Well I do believe I still have an Apartment near Headquarters, I could always get into the Private Security field that way I am around for him" Finished John looking at her "I better clean up before I head back to Civilization" Brown finished as he stood up and looked at her.

"How can you get though when so many other's didn't it's like she was talking to me though you" John finally stated
Title: Re: New Horizon's - Earth Locations.
Post by: Samantha Lance on June 05, 2017, 04:10:43 PM
Samantha tilted her head to one side and arched her right eyebrow.  "Private security, really?  Then you would see even less of Steven you idiot.  It's not the answer, you could still have a career in the Fleet, but you'd need to make it clear to everyone that Steven is your primary concern."  She took a breath and thought for a moment.  "I'm sure between your parents and mine, they can look after him and hell even I can when I am off duty.  You just make sure that every off duty rotation, that you are with him."  It was that simple.

Lance had to think about what Brown had said after, it was as though Kristi was talking through her.  "Well I knew her too and I know if she could you would have one of her size sevens up your butt about now."  She looked down at her boots.  "I have size sixes if you'd like."  Her gaze came back to meet John's and a smile spread across her face.  "Come on back to San Francisco with me, you can stay at my place if yours is gone, just until you get back on your feet.  I have a spare room."

"Yeah I come with you to the City and plus spending time with Steven would be good for both of us and help me heal to get back on my feet" Finished John with a smile

5 HOURS LATER

John had agreed to return to San Francisco with her, things had began to move fast and as such Brown had cleaned himself up and donned his red uniform.  Once again he looked like an officer and not a vagrant living on the streets.  After arriving at the city, they'd spent a couple of hours at Johns' parents and visited Steven.

Starfleet HQ

One of the Chief Medical Officers at Starfleet Medical had an opening and had agreed to see John on short notice.  The fact was with so many positions to fill, it was within the Fleets interest to get people into those much needed positions.  John and Samantha walked across the length of the parade grounds, before entering the main HQ building as it was.  Like the rest of the fleet, Headquarters was also being rebuilt following an attack.  They stopped at the main entrance and Lance came to stand in front of her Brother in Law.  She put her hands on his arms and looked up into eyes.  "You can do this."  She said before lowering his altitude and wrapping her arms around.  "Go get em."  She said before stepping back.

"Yes I get them for Steven and mainly for Kristi" Finished John as he strightin his Command Red Tunic and walked into Headquarters as he walked he saw a few sets of Cadets who would salute him he stoped at the Office and took a seat outside he knew he at an appointment at 15:30

Lieutenant Commander TJ McClane strolled across the parade ground, which led to the current HQ building of Starfleet Command, where all the top brass resided.  The Commander walked with conviction and felt determination driving him.  He'd just returned from the Orelax Sector, as part of a Covert Intelligence Team.  According to sources ships had disappeared out there and no trace had ever been found, nor were any distress signals sent.  A general consensus was a Dominion splinter group were responsible, another favourite was The New Obsidian Order.

The mission had gone badly and their small vessel had been stricken by an unknown force, which totally immobilised the craft and scrambled any communications.  Through what he could describe as divine intervention, he and one other of his team were able to escape in a shuttlecraft.  That was just prior to the arrival of....something...it'd travelled through subspace and bore down on their ship.  Whatever had stopped the ship in space faded, but following the actions of the crew, the main ships engines were burnt out quickly and inoperable.

TJ had been back on Earth for just short of two weeks and had been making every effort to get a team together and go in search of his team who were still missing.  He entered SFHQ and marched across the marble floor and towards the office of Admiral Tom Gowland.  As he passed from one corridor to another, he spotted another redshirt sitting outside one of the temporary medical offices.  "Well well well, Johnny Brown as I live and breathe."  He said approaching the man and offering him his hand of friendship.  He'd known Brown from when Brown was in Alpha Six, under the command of John Anderson.

The mission had gone badly and their small vessel had been stricken by an unknown force, which totally immobilised the craft and scrambled any communications.  Through what he could describe as divine intervention, he and one other of his team were able to escape in a shuttlecraft.  That was just prior to the arrival of....something...it'd travelled through subspace and bore down on their ship.  Whatever had stopped the ship in space faded, but following the actions of the crew, the main ships engines were burnt out quickly and inoperable.

TJ had been back on Earth for just short of two weeks and had been making every effort to get a team together and go in search of his team who were still missing.  He entered SFHQ and marched across the marble floor and towards the office of Admiral Tom Gowland.  As he passed from one corridor to another, he spotted another redshirt sitting outside one of the temporary medical offices.  "Well well well, Johnny Brown as I live and breathe."  He said approaching the man and offering him his hand of friendship.  He'd known Brown from when Brown was in Alpha Six, under the command of John Anderson.

John stood up and returned the hand shake of TJ a man who he hasn't seen in a long time.

"Good to see you too TJ; been too long"Finished Brown

John returned took the proffered hand and the two men shook.  McClane gave his common half grin and nodded when Brown mentioned that it had been a while.  "Indeed it has, whats it been..."  He had to think for a moment.  "Three, no...four years, probably close to five actually?"  They hadn't seen each other since 71, when Brown left the Advanced Tactical Division to get married.  He remembered when it was announced, that he had ridiculed John about making a big mistake, but it was all in good humour.  McClane looked to one side and flinched slightly, he'd heard about Kristi and felt bad about cracking the 'mistake' jokes.  "I was so sorry to hear about Kristi, it must be tough to lose someone like that?"  The news had come through the A.T.D grapevine, once a person was in The Division, they were always considered as part of its family.

"But damn it is good to see you too, Brother."

John grinned as TJ spoke then took a breath at the Mention of Kristi then taking a side look.

"Thanks, it has been hard I admit spend the last Five Months in traction Now I am back to Starfleet got to past those blasted Medical's then try to find an opening for me" Brown stated as he looked at him

McClane grinned as his friend told him about getting back, after a five month break from the service.  His obstacle was getting past the medical officers, that in T.J's opinion was at times worse than passing A.T.D selection.  "Bunch of frakking know it all Doctors huh?  I know what you mean there."  He shook his head and added.  "Ya know I swear they were put in this universe to annoy us fighting men."  It was too late at that point, McClane remembered Kristi was a Doctor, he'd once again said something stupid.  Then it was always the way with tragedy, people couldn't help but come out with a bad comment in someway.  It certainly wasn't on purpose, not in T.J's case anyway, it was just what seemed to happen.

He was tempted to ask about his visit with the Doctor and what it was he had to pass.  He'd mentioned something about being out of traction for five months, which was roughly when the war ended.  Of course he knew about Brown's little boy, in all likelihood it was to look after him.  There were only two other possibilities he could think of, one was injury and he was at the end of his recuperation leave.  The other was not something he thought too possible, could John have gone to bits when Kristi died?  Possibly, but TJ doubted it was that, Brown had seen terrible sights in his ATD days and seen close friends butchered.  But none of those horrific events had phased him, he was always as efficient afterwards.  But then again McClane had never married and never been in a long term relationship with anyone, so therefore couldn't know what it was like to lose someone like John had.

"So got your eye on anything?, job wise?"

TJ nodded in silence as Brown talked about the fleet, it was as he said in a bad state.  "The war was costly, for is for damn sure, a lot of experience..just.."  He looked to one side and shook his head.  "Gone and as you say people have been pushed up quickly, a lot quicker than we were."

He looked back at his friend and pointed upwards.  "Though they are pushing ships out as quickly as possible, they'll need the best on them.  But then again with all this speed, it's going to invite trouble."  McClane held his head back and widened his eyes.  "I mean you and I both know from experience, that haste is the mother of all frak ups."  He was of course referring to their experiences in A.T.D, it was a fact that quickly put together plans and bad intel potentially led to mission disaster.  In the universe of Starships, haste would usually mean a malfunction and a ship out of service usually.  In their world, the ATD, it was someone dead or severely injured.  Though there were times when haste was key, but they preferred careful planning as routine.

TJ looked up at a ceiling mounted clock and saw the time.  "Damn I better get a move on, got to meet with Gowland."  He rolled his eyes at the name given.  "He's the Chief of ATD Operations now, God help us.  Anyhow."  He took John's hand with both of his and shook it once again.  "We should get a drink together, soon alright?  Best of luck, Brother."  He said before heading off down the corridor, to meet the bureaucrat.

Doctor Alistair Grant sat in his temporary and slightly ill-equipped office, it had the very basics that it needed.  But it lacked something of warmth and empathy, something he felt his profession needed.  Grant was in his late fifties and had a little over 32 years served as a member of Starfleet Medical and the Federation Medical Council. 

The Doctor was sat looking over the patient file for his next customer, Lieutenant Commander John Brown.  The man had lost his Wife towards the end of the war and seemingly gone into a well of self pity, denial and survivors guilt.  His previous Doctor, Roger Masters, had downgraded the Commanders capacity to serve and suggested therapy sessions.  To which Brown declined and reserved his commission as a result.

Doctor Edwards entered a moment later, with Brown closely following her.  Alistair in his native Scottish accent greeted the officer.  "John, come in, take a seat."  He said gestured to a chair at the opposite side of the desk.

Although Alistair held the rank of Commander, he would never allow anybody to call him by his rank.  He preferred Doctor and with his patients he preferred a first name basis.  Something about ranks in a surgery, could at times put people on edge and that was counter productive.

Grant nodded as he listened to the Commander, of course he was aware of the official findings in Kristi's death, it was necessary to have those details.  They talked for the best part of an hour and it was clear John had done some thinking since his last visit to Starfleet Medical.  But they both had to be sure, Grant needed to know Brown wasn't telling him what he wanted to hear and of course Brown had to know he was still up to the task.  Physically he was in good shape, better than most, but the mind was a tricky thing to contend with.  So with that they agreed on a limited duty assignment, which would mean he was temporarily unfit to take on a command position, like that of a First Officer.

Alistair finished his final notes and the two men shook on the deal they'd made.  "So come and see me in whenever you can, after your first assignment.  And remember contact with Steven is crucial."

==Previously On The Bridge.==

After leaving the bridge in the hands of Lt Ingram, Hunter had made his way to the transporter room and down to Starfleet HQ.  He couldn't help but think about leaving a Science Officer in charge and wondered about her abilities, then again the ship was in dock.  It was unlikely she would need to do much.

As Hunter entered Command, two Cadets snapped to attention.  The Captain's keen eye spotted one had his collar unzipped.  "Attend to that collar Mister."  He ordered the red headed Cadet.

"Aye aye Sir."  The Cadet replied reaching up to his collar.  "You represent Starfleet, always whenever you wear that uniform."

On that Hunter carried on and waited at the end of the corridor, that connected to where the medical area was currently positioned.  It didn't take long to see who he'd come to see, he was aware of the time of Brown's appointment, thanks to a favour Dr Grant owed him.  Hunter stood in silence and watched Brown approach.

"Mr Brown."  Hunter said with a nod.

He was a little surprised about it being a pleasure, after what had happened five months earlier.  He looked to be in reasonable condition, but his face betrayed his feelings slightly, not quite as confident as Bill remembered.

Early 2375, Events take place during the final push on Cardassia.  Five months before the mission New Horizon's.

Hunter sat in his command chair, he was gripping the arms tight, the Exeter was in danger of flying apart.  The engines had exceeded maximum and the Chief Engineer was screaming for them to slow down.  That was something the Captain could not do, he was frustrated at that point.  Several hours earlier they'd been providing an escort to a Medical ship, they'd been ordered to join a battlegroup, in an effort to take Cardassia.  Bill had protested the order and said he felt leaving the medical ship was reckless and put them in unnecessary jeopardy.  But he had been overruled and away he went.

Two hours later came the distress call he feared, the USS Essex had been attacked by two Galor class Cardassian ships.  It was a common thing to get S.I.D's in a war, but this one was personal, his XO's Wife was one of the Senior Medical Officers on board.

"Ensign Morgan, how long before we reach the Essex?"  He asked looking towards his XO, whose concern was clearly and expectedly obvious.

Lieutenant Commander John Brown was sitting in the First Officer Chair when they heard the Distress Call he knew what that meant it was the Essex he didn't have to be told the name he just knew.

Brown was reminded of the Message he got from Kristi and the communication they had only 6 Days earlier he ended it out of anger and he knew his wife had a bad feeling and he cared more about his duty to the Fleet then to break orders he was always about orders.His face was out of concern and anger of what the Cardassian's did

Zaira was having difficulty keeping a tight reign on the controls and her telepathic mental barriers in check as the ship shook and rattled as the engines were pushed to beyond maximum. Trying not fall off her chair as she monitored the readouts she heard the Captain behind her ask how long it would be before they reached the Essex.

Without the need to turn around she answered him, her voice a little shaky due to what was going on around them "We're coming out of warp now Captain so will be at the Essex within minutes".

With the usual thrum the Exeter dropped out of warp, arriving to see an aged Excelsior class starship limping away from two vessels.  The attacking ships were Cardassian, Galor class and they clearly had the upper hand.  Yellow beams were cutting beams across to the Exeter, most but not all were hitting the old girl.  Her shields were at 8 percent and their collapse was imminent.  The occasional beam struck the Cardassian aggressors, her phaser banks were almost depleted of energy, her supply of photon torpedoes were gone.

The screen was already active and gave a very clear view of what was happening.  The Essex was attempting to flee, but being struck occasionally by Cardassian disruptors.  Hunter pressed his lips together and frowned.  "Two against one, not particularly fair now is it?"  It was more of a statement than a question.  "Lieutenant Briggs, status of the Essex."  He said looking to the Ops officer.

"Her shields are at eight percent Sir, looks like she's all but expended her phaser energy."  Reported Ops.

"Understood, message them, tell them to back off or be destroyed."  Hunter ordered, knowing full well it might not turn out that way.  They'd all but killed the Essex and would surely turn on the Exeter at any moment, making it 2 vs 1 again.  "Tactical target the lead vessel, weapons and shields and fire at will." 

Hunter's eyes moved back to the screen, there he saw two orange-red beams light up the black and slam into the lead enemy ships shields.  "Commander Brown, message the Essex, tell them if they have warp to use it now.  Helm prepare and evasive course and track the Essex, we have to stay with her at all costs."

The moment they had dropped out of warp Zaira knew she had to keep focused despite what was happening right in front of them. Her concentration firmly on the controls yet watched as the orange red beams aimed at the lead enemy ship leaving tiny sparkly lights reflected in her black irises.

Hearing the Captain behind her once more when he gave the order to prepare an evasive course and track the Essex. " Aye Captain preparing the evasive course now"  she called back her hands working quickly over the controls receiving an alert seconds later to confirm everything was ready.

Hunter gritted his teeth at the news from Brown, either their comms were out, or their was nobody alive to receive the communique.  He was about to order a scan of the Essex, when a yellow beam tore across from the second ship and slammed into the saucer shields of the Exeter.

Hunter gritted his teeth at the news from Brown, either their comms were out, or their was nobody alive to receive the communique.  He was about to order a scan of the Essex, when a yellow beam tore across from the second ship and slammed into the saucer shields of the Exeter.

John sat there hoping Kristi was okay he knew she had to be okay she needed to be okay, Kristi was the one that held him together after all those ATD operations it was here that helped him deal with the horrors she kept him stable. He was going off automatic  he looked at the Readings of the the two Cardassian vessels.

"Captian, if we try Pattern Echo- Niner do you see if the Cardassians fire they would fire on each other?" asked John looking at his Captian

As the ship was slammed by enemy fire, Zaira was thrown forwards into the console and slipped slightly out of her seat but ignored the pain as she regained her position. She immediately got to work as she heard the Captain's next order and began the evasive manoeuvres.

" Aye sir evasive manoeuvres pattern delta five initiated".

"Negative Commander, they're too tight together and..."  Hunter was cut off mid sentence by Ops. 

"Captain, they've ceased fire and...I don't believe this."  Ops said

Hunter however was in no mood for mind games and snapped back at Briggs.  "Come on Briggs, share it with us."

He didn't have to, Bill observed the two enemy ships close formation and move off.  It was curious to say the least, no doubt the officers wondered what they were doing, Hunter sure as hell did.  "Ok that's odd, maintain alert and keep an eye on them.  This could be a trick, to have us let our guard down and them come back quickly and spam us with phasers and torpedoes."  He took a breath and looked towards the Helmsman.  "Ensign, bring us to the portside of the Essex, parallel their course.  Mr Briggs, you are in command until we return."  His attention moved to Brown.  "Don't quote the rules Commander."  He said anticipating Brown reminding him of the dangers, though it wasn't often anyone needed to remind Bill of the rules.  He slapped his comm badge.  "Damage control teams, get over to the Essex.  Mr Briggs I want an assessment of our damage when I return."

Hunter rose from the chair and moved for the turbolift.  "Commander."  He said gesturing for John to follow him.

The behaviour of the enemy ships was certainly bizarre and she hoped that this would be the end of it so they could help their stricken sister ship but wasn't completely naive. Moving her attention back to the controls as she answered the Captain.

" Yes sir, bringing us alongside her portside now and matching her course" she replied as she moved the Essex into position.

"Yes I do know."  He said turning to face the doors of the lift.  "Transporter Room One."  He ordered.

Once the lift began to move, the Captain turned his head towards Brown.  "Commander I am going to be blunt, we could go over there and find out that Kristi is dead, we both heard Lieutenant Briggs and the number of life signs.  That's nearly half the crew dead."  The lift groaned to a halt and deposited the two men onto deck 6, they quickly proceeded towards the transporter room.  "I need you at the top of your game Commander."  Was all Hunter said before they reached the transporter room.

A few moments later they were on the bridge of the Essex, at least what was left of it.  Most of the consoles were smashed or smoking, there were several bodies laid in various positions, clearly nobody had the time to move them.  A curly haired brunette stood up, a Lieutenant from the Ops division approached.  Her uniform was tattered and dirty, she was also sporting a nasty gash in her left shoulder.  "Lieutenant Commander Adam's Sir, we're dead in the water and haven't much of a ship left to fight with.  We were worried our distress call didn't go out, we lost comms almost right away."

"Understood Commander, I'm Captain Hunter, this is Commander Brown from the Exeter.  Status of your command crew?"  Bill asked but had a fair idea of the answer.

"Dead Sir, the Captain and Exec were on deck nine and we took a hull breach."  She took a breath and sat in the command chair.

"Commander."  He said nodding towards the turbolift.  "See if you can get a damage report."

"Not good."  Hunter replied moving to the MSD at the rear of the bridge, he tried to figure out if any power could be re-routed from other systems.  But it wasn't easy to determine anything, the power distribution systems were malfunctioning and the main computer seemed to have taken significant damage, most of the primaries were on manual.  "I'm thinking we're going to be fighting a losing battle here, might be worth considering abandoning the ship if we can't get above impulse."  At that point Hunter turned to Brown.  "Get below decks and start evacuating this crew to the Exeter."

As Doctor Kristi Brown

(http://i950.photobucket.com/albums/ad349/Mikey010178/Caity-Lotz-Photography_zps8mjrpgzo.jpg)

Deck 7 was a mix of burning and twisted bulkhead, bodies of fallen personnel laid where they'd fallen.  The air was filling with acrid smoke and it was not much of a leap to imagine the ship was doomed.

Doctor Kristi Brown was hard at work, she was hard at work on an engineer who sustained a severed femoral artery and as common with those types of injury, the man was bleeding profusely.  The flickering lights in the sickbay made the task hard, but she was determined to save the guy.  Too many of not just the ships crew had died already, but people in general, on both sides of the conflict.  The loss of anyone's life was repulsive to Kristi, enemy or not, everyone deserved the chance to live their life.

"Clamp."  She ordered keeping her head low to just above the Engineers left knee, where the piece of bulkhead had shredded him.  The Doctor held up her hand and received the device she asked for.  It was tricky but she was able to secure the artery and clamp the end of it.  It was probable the man would lose his leg below the knee, but dead he would not be.

Kristi's attention was drawn to one of her Nurse's, who'd come dashing into the sickbay.  "Doctor, another ship has arrived and they are ordering us to abandon the Essex."

Brown sighed and returned her attention to the patient, for the moment he seemed to be stable and the blood wasn't quite as free flowing as before.  Though she knew it wouldn't take much to start it again.  "Dammit, I'm not sure he'll be able to be moved."  She looked up and around the dying surroundings. 

For a moment she thought she was dreaming, John entered the sickbay and said basically what Nurse Hepworth had just said.  "John."  She said with her expression blank, she was in full Doctor mode and had no time for pleasantries.  "Take this one first, beam him directly to your sickbay."  She quickly tapped up the patient's notes and placed the padd between the man's arm and body.

Two Jem'Hadar fighters dropped out of warp and moved in for the kill, they'd originally come in search of the two Cardassian ships, but the Federation vessel's were worthy prey.  Purple beams of death tore across and struck both ships as they conducted a strafing move.

After a brief look around she saw that those who were injured, had been helped by those who were able and began to fade in the hue of a transporter effect.  "Look's like we're going, we should head to the bridge and make sure there aren't any others who need help."  She said moving swiftly to the door and kissing John on the cheek as she passed.  "I should have known you'd come."  She said with a wink, before shoving him out in front of her.

It was as they made their way along the corridor, that the ship rocked violently and seemingly in several directions.  The deck and bulkheads in front of them ground and twisted, as the EPS grid fractured and caused a barrier between them.  The barrier comprised of twisted metal, smoke and fire, it'd cut off access to the turbolift for Kristi.

The evacuation was going as well as could be expected, Briggs had reported in from the Exeter, they'd engaged the Dominion ships and managed to destroy one of them.  But they were getting pummelled by the other, time was everything at that point.  Briggs also mentioned Brown hadn't beamed out and nor had his Wife, though patients from the Essex had been evacuated.

The turbolift halted at deck 7, though Bill was nervous and praying it wouldn't get stuck in transit.  The doors parted and filled the cubicle with smoke and its choking odour.  With a hand up in front of his face he pushed out into the corridor and quickly found Brown trying to get through some wreckage and flames.  He was calling to Kristi to lower the active quarantine field, it didn't take a genius to figure out what had happened.  Clearly Kristi was seeing things more clearly than John, who was almost frantic at that point.  It was hopeless, there was no way to the sickbay or beyond. 

Hunter moved forwards and put his arms under Brown's shoulders, effectively head locking him.  "COME ON COMMANDER,
 YOU CAN'T DO ANYTHING.

Though it was a struggle with Brown, Hunter was able to get the distraught Commander into the turbolift.  "BRIDGE."  He called turning his attention to his Exec and shoving him against the cubicle wall.  With his left forearm, Bill shoved it under the Commanders chin and held the man's head back.  "Listen to me."  He said baring his teeth as he spoke.  "There is no way to get to her, think of that boy of yours."

The lift ground to a halt, as soon as the doors parted, Bill grabbed Brown's tunic and forced him onto the bridge.  The command module was evacuated at that point.  "Exeter two to beam back."  Within seconds the blue hue of the transporter took a hold and brought both man back to their own ship.

The Captain stepped off the pad and walked across to the Transporter Chief.  "Is that everybody?"

The Chief took a moment to observe his sensors.  "I can't see anybody else to lock onto Sir."

Though it pained him to do so, Hunter slapped his comm badge and gave a very unpleasant order.  "Captain to Helm, plot a course to Starbase Six, full impulse."  He didn't give the order to warp, owing to the proximity of the battle and the failing USS Essex.  Occasionally miracles did happen and possibilities would present themselves.  "Computer this is Captain William Hunter, lock out the transporter controls, authorisation Hunter, Zero, One, Mike, Alpha."

After a quick glance at the Commander, Bill exited the room and made his way to the bridge.  Once he arrived Briggs gave up the center seat and moved back to Ops.  Hunter quickly sat down and spoke.  "Helm are we underway, did we find out where those Cardassian ships went?"

"Not particularly went Sir, but we might know why they left."  Briggs smiled and added.  "It seems the Cardassian's have had a change of heart and have begun aiding our forces over Cardassia."

A not so common slight twitch of a smile crossed Hunters face, it was good news, which they all needed at that point.  "Well well."  The ship rocked again as the Jem'Hadar opened fire again.  "Return fire, swat that demon out of the sky."

Zaira heard the order from the Captain and immediately pulled the ship away from the ailing Essex at full impulse, trying and failing to keep her mental block in place with everything that was going on around them as she felt and heard the emotions from everyone. However when the Captain returned and asked if they were underway she responded.

" Yes Captain we are course laid in for Starbase 6 at full impulse " she replied as Briggs gave his report and could only hope this was the start of something good as she turned back to her station.

Though it was a struggle with Brown, Hunter was able to get the distraught Commander into the turbolift.  "BRIDGE."  He called turning his attention to his Exec and shoving him against the cubicle wall.  With his left forearm, Bill shoved it under the Commanders chin and held the man's head back.  "Listen to me."  He said baring his teeth as he spoke.  "There is no way to get to her, think of that boy of yours."

The lift ground to a halt, as soon as the doors parted, Bill grabbed Brown's tunic and forced him onto the bridge.  The command module was evacuated at that point.  "Exeter two to beam back."  Within seconds the blue hue of the transporter took a hold and brought both man back to their own ship.

The Captain stepped off the pad and walked across to the Transporter Chief.  "Is that everybody?"

The Chief took a moment to observe his sensors.  "I can't see anybody else to lock onto Sir."

Though it pained him to do so, Hunter slapped his comm badge and gave a very unpleasant order.  "Captain to Helm, plot a course to Starbase Six, full impulse."  He didn't give the order to warp, owing to the proximity of the battle and the failing USS Essex.  Occasionally miracles did happen and possibilities would present themselves.  "Computer this is Captain William Hunter, lock out the transporter controls, authorisation Hunter, Zero, One, Mike, Alpha."

After a quick glance at the Commander, Bill exited the room and made his way to the bridge.  Once he arrived Briggs gave up the center seat and moved back to Ops.  Hunter quickly sat down and spoke.  "Helm are we underway, did we find out where those Cardassian ships went?"

"Not particularly went Sir, but we might know why they left."  Briggs smiled and added.  "It seems the Cardassian's have had a change of heart and have begun aiding our forces over Cardassia."

A not so common slight twitch of a smile crossed Hunters face, it was good news, which they all needed at that point.  "Well well."  The ship rocked again as the Jem'Hadar opened fire again.  "Return fire, swat that demon out of the sky."

John just stood there in the Transporter Room he was upset that he was loosing his wife he was almost at a breaking point but then his Duty as First Officer took over he grunted pushing the Emotions to the Back of his mind then his face was still he then left the Transporter Room heading for the Bridge he walked on with nothing to show what happened that was between him and William Hunter.

"What did I miss" Finished Brown taking his seat

The Exeter pulled away quickly, while still taking hits from the surviving Dominion ship.  The Essex was all but powerless and was beginning to roll slowly to starboard, any power sign began to fluctuate into none existence.  The flickers got less and less, longer between each flicker, until the Excelsior class ship was torn to pieces.  There was an initial flash point around the command module and then another in succession over the engineering section.  Within seconds a third explosion tore through the neck, that connected the drive section to the saucer.  The fourth blast consumed the vessel and left only fragments of what was once a the USS Essex.

The Jem'Hadar vessel was in hot pursuit of the Exeter, then fortune in the shape of two Cardassian ships warped in and opened fire on their former allies.

Hunter had ordered the tactical situation onto the viewer, the Jem'Hadar ship was bearing down on them.  Further back it wasn't hard to miss the fate of the Essex, there were a few explosions and then a single large one.  The bridge was silent for a second or two and the Captain's heart sank.  Brown had come to the bridge in time to see it, Bill could only imagine what he was feeling at that point.

"Captain, the two Cardassian ships are back."  Briggs reported. 

The Captain saw the two Galors close in behind the Jem'Hadar and unleash a volley of phasers and torpedoes.  "Engage the Jem'Hadar only, do not engage the Cardassian's, fire at will."  Hunter ordered.  The combined efforts of all three ships, soon made quick work of the Dominion ship, which like its sister ship was obliterated.

6 Months Later - Present Day

Hunter stood for a long moment and observed his former Exec.  "How are you doing John?"  He asked using Brown's first name, not something he would do with subordinates often.  But with all the Commander had been through, a bit more of a personal touch was appropriate.  "How is Steven?"

John looked back at his former Captian for a moment before speaking towards him plainly.

"To be honest been better then I have been in Five Months I whet though a lot walked down a dark path but with help I was brought back to the light" Finished John than taking a breath "I do'nt blame you Sir for what you did, you had to do it I was'nt in the right frame of mine I was an unstable element and for that I thank you for it you be always in my debt for that" John stated taking a breath before speaking

"Steven has taken it hard but with help he will be better just takes time to heal wombs, As for me I got cleared to be back to Starfleet I only need to find a Capetian who would take me" smiled John then looking at him "I honestly though you be ready for one of these offices" John Finally finished

It was understandable what Brown had been through, since the death of Kristi, William had wondered what he would do if he lost his beloved Amelia.  They'd been married for 19 years, she was every part of who he was and life without her seemed unbearable.  Hopefully he would never find out.  Hunter blinked and gave the slightest nod, when John said that he didn't blame him for Kristi and he had only done what he needed to.  "You are not in my debt Commander, as you said I did what I had to, gave you a voice of reason within the chaos of that day.  Please believe me when I tell you, it was one of..."  He stopped and thought for a moment.  "No it was the most difficult thing I have ever done."

Brown's Son had taken things hard, but at nine years old it was understandable.  He nodded to the comment that time healed all wounds, something that Hunter also firmly believed in.  It was good to hear that the Commander had been cleared for duty and that he needed to find a Captain who'd have him on board.  "Well any Commanding officer would be privileged to have you on their ship, just so happens I know of a particular Captain who needs a Chief Tactical Officer."  He gave a flat smile.  "Interested?  And as for the Admiralty position, I did it for about five months, it wasn't for me one little bit.  I was in danger of getting old and growing roots."

"Commander, we've known each other for what?"  He though for a moment.  "Lets say four years, that's about right and in the time we served together."  A half grin formed.  "How often did I rely on luck, there's no such thing just so you know."  The Captain gestured for them to walk towards the parade square, while they continued to talk.  "Who do you think got in touch with Miss Lance?"

"And as for Admiral Brown, yes we bumped heads a little.  He tried to talk me around stepping down, I told him it was either that or a resignation and boom here I am."  Bill frowned at himself.  Did I just say boom?

"Yes you should have."  Hunter agreed.  The fact was once Brown was on the Horizon, he would be the only crew member who would know anything about him.  All save for one that was.  "Surprised you haven't asked about the ship, you took the job without hesitation."  William said as they stepped onto the parade ground, there were some Freshman Cadets being drilled.  Hunter let out a slight chuckle.  "Seems like such a long time ago, when that was me."  He said nodding towards the Freshmen.

2 DAYS LATER - THE EVENING BEFORE LAUNCH DAY

Just about the entire crew has arrived for duty, but those who haven't are scheduled to report the following morning.  Captain Hunter has stood the crew down for the evening and ordered Cmdr Shepard to take them to 'The Waterbar' in San Francisco.
(http://i950.photobucket.com/albums/ad349/Mikey010178/waterbar-baylights-1-retouched.0.0_zps82dyqed9.jpg)
This is so the crew can intermingle and get to know one another in a none professional surrounding.  Such opportunities might not be in abundance during their tour of duty.  Hunter has told the crew they are going out on a three year assignment, to explore mainly, but to also try and reconnect with worlds that contact was lost with, during The Dominion War.

Captain Hunter will not be attending the get together, but wishes everybody a good evening.  He reminds you that as always that you represent Starfleet, The Federation and above all The Horizon.  The venue has a restaurant if anyone wants it.
(http://i950.photobucket.com/albums/ad349/Mikey010178/4_zpssgsy48jt.jpg)
And of course a bar, which no doubt most of you will use.

McClane had gotten an invitation from John Brown, to meet him at The Waterbar near HQ.  It'd been a bad couple of days since they'd met and the Commander was seriously contemplating his future with the Fleet.  Gowland had really gone too far this time, the man seemed to have forgotten the sacred code of the Alpha's.

He hoped the evening would lighten his mood, the bar wasn't somewhere he frequented, though he had been in there once or twice for various reasons.  He donned his best pants, a white shirt and a charcoal jacket.  He'd groomed and put on his best cologne for the evening.
(http://i950.photobucket.com/albums/ad349/Mikey010178/Thomas_Jane93303_zps12c68863.jpg)
He felt a little awkward arriving before Brown, he had no idea who was who.

Charlotte stopped just outside of the bars entrance feeling a little self conscious as she normally would of turned down a night out in favour of reading or catching up on the latest scientific news and had pretty much been that way since her last relationship ended. However given the fact that they were about to head out on a three year assignment and that she wanted to get to the know the crew better had come to her senses and decided she might as well dress up and enjoy herself.

Taking a deep breath she opened the door and went inside and soon realised that she was the first one to arrive which wasn't a complete surprise as she always hated to be late. Again she wasn't about to turn back so thought she might as well get a drink whilst she waited and as she walked towards the bar noticed someone a smartly dressed man that she didn't recognise but offered him a friendly smile as she was brought up to be polite.

Formal events like this were not a favourite of Grix but at least he would get to meet the crew members and also a good place to get to know certain members.

He had dressed smartly and had the ordered haircut and his beard trimmed before he set off for the event.

As he walked in to the building he saw only two people one a rather attractive woman and a rugged tough looking man.

"Am I early"? He asked as he walked into the room.

Quarters Before the Event

When Bonnie had been invited to the evening 'do', she had been reluctant to come. She had spent the last few days doing physicals on crewmen. She still hadn't met any of the officers on board, apart from Katelyn.

Bonnie had put a black dress on, a small necklace hung from her neck, a present from her mother before she'd left her. Bonnie took hold of the necklace in her small palm and stared at it for a few seconds. She let go of the necklace, turned around and then looked up, noticing a dark figure in the corner of the room. Bonnie froze for a moment in confusion, rubbed her eyes and then looked back at the empty corner. "Oh yeah, it's you." Bonnie looked over to the empty corner again and continued. "You won't get me. Not today." Bonnie sighed to herself, turned back and stared at herself in the mirror. "Right. Let's get this over with."

The Bar

Bonnie opened the door to the bar and looked around the room before entering. Bonnie just made it in time to hear the man that ask if he was late, Bonnie wasn't shy, she just had a lack of trust for people.

"Am I early"? He asked as he walked into the room.

"I think you might be. There's not many people here at all." Bonnie said to the man.

TJ was stood at one end of the bar, in front of him was a scotch and soda, his favourite tipple at that point in his life.  He was a man of various tastes, which could change at the drop of a hat.  It was the price of such an active lifestyle, one that kept everything on the move and made it necessary to adapt to whatever the situation.

He noticed the lady walk in after him, he dress was stunning and exposed her features nicely.  He nodded and smiled back in her direction, upon receipt of her own charming smile.  He wondered if she was part of Brown's crew, but she wasn't necessarily, civilians no doubt frequented the place too.  A moment later a man in a suit entered, he moved towards the lady and began to speak to her.  McClane had been on the edge of his seat and thought about talking to her, but the arrival of the bearded guy stopped that idea.

The arrival of a blonde caught TJ's eye, she was seemingly part of the group that was forming.  At least she was speaking to bearded guy, so either it was a works function or family get together.  Or Beardie was getting lucky that night.

Charlotte noticed two others enter the bar and vaguely recognised the man as being one of the crew and was pretty sure he was in Flight but before she could answer his question it was answered for her by the lady in the black dress but still she was polite and addressed them both.

" Looks like we all are " she replied then turned back to the bar as the guy she saw first returned her smile. " Good choice of drink " she said gesturing towards the scotch and soda before ordering and receiving a glass of her  favourite coffee liqueur and orange juice.

TJ had let his attention slip, he was observing the blonde in the black dress and the guy she was talking to and had totally missed the brunette moving closer.  She said his drink was a good choice, his eyes lowered to his glass for a second and then back to her.  "It is."  He agreed.  "Just my favourite for the moment, if you know what I mean."  He said with a smile forming as he spoke.  "Do you come here often?"

The brunette and the older guy seemed to be getting along fine and anyway Grix had his attention drawn towards the attractive blonde who walked in behind him.

"Hello miss, are you here for the meeting"? He smiled as he spoke to her  and then looked towards the bar.

"My name is Lt Christian Grix or Chris if you prefer, do you fancy a drink while we wait for the fashionably lates,? He hoped she would say yes, not only because she was attractive but also because he already felt uncomfortable in the bar, a feeling he was not used to.

"I am doctor Bonnie Moors. It's a pleasure to meet you, Christian." Bonnie preferred a full name from shorter ones; they usually sounded better in her opinion. Bonnie could sense the discomfort coming from the man and nodded. She was a little surprised that the man seemed to be out of his comfort zone. He didn't look like the kind of person who would be, but Bonnie learnt that people came across differently to what they were actually like. That ability came with her telepathy. "I would love a drink, sounds like a good way to get things into motion." She hoped it'd make him more comfortable too, she needed to make some friends on the ship.

As the two made their way towards the bar, Bonnie begun to move faster to keep up with the man. She sat down on one a bar stool opposite Christian and smiled. The waiter walked over and waited to take the order. "I would like a glass of water. And you?" Bonnie finished.

McClane knew of Brown's new job and the fact he was due to depart in the next day or two, that was why his friend had suggested a drink on that very night.

Bonnie turned back to Christian what he begun to speak. She shook her head in reply to his question. "I am not the CMO. In fact, I'm not a member of Starfleet." Bonnie paused as the bartender returned with their drinks. She thanked the bartender and took her water.

Christian picked up his glass and took a sip of the liquid feeling the heat as it travelled through his throat and chest.

"Well looking at.your eyes I don't need telepathy to see you are probably Betazoid". He grinned wondering if she had picked up on his nerves earlier. It wasn't her that made him nervous but the fact he hadn't seen the captain since the haircut order.

"Well Bonnie at least rank isn't an issue to stop us being friends, I'm the pilot or helsman by the way".

The grin was due to the fact she was the first person he had really talked with in five days.

She took another sip of the drink and continued. "And I'd guess that you're a human, but that'd be too simple." Bonnie grinned. "So I think you may be a Klingon." Bonnie said jokingly.

When Josh informed the crew that the captain wanted everyone to have fun and relax and suggested this place he eagerly told the crew. Everyone has been working almost non-stop getting the ship ready for departure.

Josh finally arrived, he wasn't fond of gatherings like these too much but he was all for letting the crew unwind so they can focus later down the line. He was dressed in a nice black suit and tie. He saw many of his shipmates already talking and enjoying themselves. He didn't see his brother yet but he knows Knodwl isn't big on these events either but he does follow orders.

Josh grabbed a drink from the bar and was walking around. He saw Lieutenant Grix finally groomed and presentable. He held up his drink pointing it at Grix signaling Nicely done. without saying anything. Josh then started walking to the center of the room where most of his fellow crewmembers are. "May i have your attention everyone." Members of his crew and even people that aren't turned to face Josh. "I just want to take this time to thank you all for coming. You have all busted your ass getting the Horizon ready. Things are actually a head of schedule so this is why the captain made this possible." Josh then started turned slowly in a 360 direction looking at everyone there. "The Enterprise might be the flagship of the federation but soon everyone will know the name Horizon and what her crew will do." Josh then raised his glass. "Here's to the Horizon, and the best crew in the fleet." Josh then took a drink and watched as other people did as well.

2 DAYS LATER - THE EVENING BEFORE LAUNCH DAY

Just about the entire crew has arrived for duty, but those who haven't are scheduled to report the following morning.  Captain Hunter has stood the crew down for the evening and ordered Cmdr Shepard to take them to 'The Waterbar' in San Francisco.
(http://i950.photobucket.com/albums/ad349/Mikey010178/waterbar-baylights-1-retouched.0.0_zps82dyqed9.jpg)
This is so the crew can intermingle and get to know one another in a none professional surrounding.  Such opportunities might not be in abundance during their tour of duty.  Hunter has told the crew they are going out on a three year assignment, to explore mainly, but to also try and reconnect with worlds that contact was lost with, during The Dominion War.

Captain Hunter will not be attending the get together, but wishes everybody a good evening.  He reminds you that as always that you represent Starfleet, The Federation and above all The Horizon.  The venue has a restaurant if anyone wants it.
(http://i950.photobucket.com/albums/ad349/Mikey010178/4_zpssgsy48jt.jpg)
And of course a bar, which no doubt most of you will use.

John entered next to him was his Sister-In-Law Samantha Lance, she might have been his Wife Sister but he was'nt blind to the fact how attractive she was but John could'nt cross the line to him she was his Sister to. he brought her with him as a Thank You for helping him find himself.

John was waring a Suit and and nice Shoes he knew that the Captian would'nt be there as that was what Hunter was like then he was in shock looked over at Lance.

"They are so young; I feel like I am a babysitter" Finished John Towards her

Katelyn had slipped quietly into the bar just as the Horizon's XO was giving a speech or was it a toast? The petite doctor was running late as she had gone for one last run on the Presidio Trail along San Francisco Bay through the old military base before their ship shoved off for a three year mission.

Dressed in a little black dress that covered her ample bosom though was low cut in the back, Dr. Carter smiled, "Here, Here," in response, then walked up to the bar with grace in a pair of black heels to get her usual, a glass of white wine.

Samantha walked with her arm around John's, he'd invited her on a night out, as a way to thank her for getting his head back in gear.  She'd put on her most favourite dress; it was also one that Kristi had always liked to see her in and her sister was always with her in spirit.
(http://i950.photobucket.com/albums/ad349/Mikey010178/JennAndo_zps3itun98q.jpg)

She looked around the bar, it was a first for her.  She had been in bars before of course, but nothing quite as fancy as she was seeing their with John.  Lance felt a little awkward for two reasons, one was she didn't know anybody, the other was the way she'd dressed.  Then a third dawned on her, what if people thought that she was dating John.  It wouldn't have been a legal crime, but it sure as hell would have been a moral one, there were lines never to be crossed and it would have betrayed Kristi.  Needless to say she would never do that.

They mingled in the bar area for a short time, when a broad shouldered man called for everyone's attention.  He made a speech about the crew getting the ship ready ahead of schedule and the Captain making the party possible.  She felt a bit like an imposter there and looked around to see if Hunter was there, she couldn't see him.

At that point she tugged on John's arm.  "So Mister, are you getting me a drink or not?"

The doors opened onto the bar and Jurgen could see the crowd gathering inside, looking around the bar he saw a few people he recognised from the files he'd seen but that was not why he was here. He was here to meet up with his CO as he had been told to.

Though there were one or two people who made him hope he could stay longer, He walked over to where TJ was just as the XO of the Horizon made his announcement.

"How's things going boss"? he asked as he stood alongside McClane,

She noticed his smile falter slightly and wondered if her being her usual friendly talkative self and revealing what she did had put him off but still she was enjoying talking to him. " Yes that's me" she replied in her soft Irish accent and was aware of a Commander Brown joining the ship. " I am so let me introduce myself, Lieutenant Charlotte Ingram but you can call me Charlie".

Her accent was as lovely as she was as he'd deduced and identified herself as Charlotte Ingram, but he could call her Charlie.  "Nah, Charlie is a boys name and I can see."  His eyes dropped to her chest for a second and then they met her eyes again.  "I can see you aren't."  His chin pointed out as he grinned.  "McClane, T.J, Starfleet Tactical."  He said offering his right hand.  At that point someone made a speech about the Horizon and how they'd done well and so on, it was the usual stuff command officers came out with.

He saw Brown enter with a rather tasty looking blonde on his arm, he had to look twice at her, not because of her attire more the fact that of who she looked like.  He held up a hand to John, in hopes of getting his attention. 

"How's things going boss?"  A familiar voice asked to his side, McClane turned to see Errikkson.  Jurgen was the only other survivor from the Orelax mission.

"Not too bad in here."  He said.  "Some rather charming company."  He added nodding to Charlotte.  "This is Charlotte."  Was said to him.  "This is Jurgen Errikkson, he works with me at Starfleet Tactical." Was said to her as he introduced them both.  The fact that Jurgen was there was a puzzlement, so with that in mind McClane looked to Charlotte and spoke again.  "Would you excuse me Charlotte." 

He stood and ushered Errikkson into a quiet corner.  "What's wrong?"  He knew whatever it was, it had to be important

The way his eyes locked onto her chest when he said that Charlie was a boys name and that clearly she wasn't. Charlotte felt as though they were almost reaching into her very soul and an unexpected pleasant chill ran through rendering her speechless for a moment. Shaking his hand when he then introduced himself " That's very true and pleased to meet you TJ " she replied just as the speech was made by Commander Shepard.

She joined in with the toast and didn't see the other officer arrive until TJ then spoke about her causing her to smile as he introduced her to Jurgen. " Nice to meet you" she said to Jurgen as TJ then excused himself " Sure I'll be right here " she answered before he left. She couldn't explain why but hoped that he would come back as she was enjoying his company.

Jurgen stood in the corner of the room and pulled a padd from his pocket "Well I picked up.an attempt to access a restricted file from a source that is using redirector software and yes I know it happens everyday but this time the file they want is yours".

He handed the padd to TJ, "so I thought I'd better invite myself along just to  over your back" he smiled once.more as the invite popped up on the padd saying he was invited by a Doctor Carter, "whoever that is" he added as TJ read the report.

Bonnie followed Christian in having a drink. Bonnie drunk some of the cold liquid, it cooled her chest as it travelled down.

"Ahh. So you figured it out did you? I'm half Betazoid however, I have more advanced telepathy. I've been able to listen in since I was a young child." Bonnie couldn't help but grin slightly. She took another sip of the drink and continued. "And I'd guess that you're a human, but that'd be too simple." Bonnie grinned. "So I think you may be a Klingon." Bonnie said jokingly.

"Helmsman eh? I was always interested in helmsmen, you all seem extremely dedicated to your post. I find it quite admirable, actually." Bonnie finished.

He looked directly at Bonnie and shook his head "This is going to.sound like a terrible line but what other planet produces such beautiful women with eyes like pools of obsidian"? He liked the fact if she wanted she could tell if he was lieing.

"Flying these ships is an honour but it comes.with a whole load of.pressure, I sometimes need one of these and a lay down after my shift, but I'm sure a doctor is more interesting". He grinned again looking up and seeing the xo.

"So why is a civilian doctor on board the Horizon"?

McClane had his head down and his ear towards Jurgen when he spoke, they both knew that enemy agencies would try and access classified files, but rang a little too close to home at that point.  His head rose and his eyes made contact with Errikkson's.  "My file?"  He frowned at that news, he had no idea who Doctor Carter was and made no comment on the matter.  The fact was the Lieutenant had done his duty and got to TJ with the new as soon as possible.  "Do we know if they actually got anything at all?"

That planet would be Betazed, I guess. However, I was raised in Los Angeles... And looking good? I'm not sure about that." Bonnie gave Christian a warm smile and took a sip of her water, the liquid had just about run out.

"Being a doctor can be interesting, but it can be slow when there isn't much going on. Nut hey, I guess that's a good thing. At least I know I'm doing my job right." Bonnie gave a slight grin. She finished off her drink and then looked over to the man he grinned at. She turned back and simply smiled, ignoring the grin towards the man.

Jurgen was certain he'd caught whoever was snooping, though they could have got into his calendar.  It would have been a read only, but it still didn't bode well at all, they both knew that any leaked information could be disastrous for the A.T.D.  "Let's hope you're right."  McClane replied.

Jurgen asked about that evening and the meeting with Gowland.  McClane shook his head with disgust.  "Damn Gowland, whoever put that butthead in charge should be shot."  His eyes slid back across to the blonde with Brown and then back to Errikkson.  "He's not going to authorise a S and R mission to find the guys."

John took Sam towards two men in dark suits, she didn't know either of them and assumed they were part of the Horizon crew.  Her Brother in Law clearly knew the two of them, one she identified as Errikkson, he apparently frequented bars.  She offered the two men a warming smile.  "Speaking of bars, weren't you going to get me a drink?"

She didn't know who it was, but Errikkson reminded her of someone, but Sam was unable to put her finger on it.  Of course it was possible that she might have seen him at HQ or somewhere else in the Fleet.  Who could tell?

The petite CMO picked up the glass of Riesling the bartender had brought her and took a sip of pale yellow sweet liquid; this white wine a popular one from the Columbia Valley in Washington State where she grew up.

There were so many interesting people gathering now in the bar, and it seemed as if they were already pairing off as her blue gaze pursued the room. She noticed the young civilian doctor on Dr. Carter's medical team was chatting it up with a male cutie from the ship. That was good for her to make friends in her age range. 

The way his eyes locked onto her chest when he said that Charlie was a boys name and that clearly she wasn't. Charlotte felt as though they were almost reaching into her very soul and an unexpected pleasant chill ran through rendering her speechless for a moment. Shaking his hand when he then introduced himself " That's very true and pleased to meet you TJ " she replied just as the speech was made by Commander Shepard.

She joined in with the toast and didn't see the other officer arrive until TJ then spoke about her causing her to smile as he introduced her to Jurgen. " Nice to meet you" she said to Jurgen as TJ then excused himself " Sure I'll be right here " she answered before he left. She couldn't explain why but hoped that he would come back as she was enjoying his company.

Kate spotted the Chief Science Officer she'd seen in Sickbay speaking to an older gentleman. They seemed to be enjoying each other's company talking until a younger tall drink of water interrupted them. As Charolette was left by herself when the two men stepped away, the golden blonde made her way down the bar to where she was sitting.

"I'm sure glad the Captain let us have this night out before we depart. How is everything going in the Science Department for you, Miss Ingram?"

Since TJ had left, Charlotte had remained where she was not particularly wanting to move not when the place seemed to be filling up plus there was still the chance of TJ returning but didn't want to get her hopes up. After finishing her drink she had ordered another along with some chips and dip and had been about to take a sip when she heard a familiar voice and turned to see Doctor Carter beside her.

" I'm glad too its been good to get away from the ship for a little while and everything is going well thank you Doctor, we're all set for departure " she replied politely and smiled at the other woman. " How about yourself ?".

Katelyn slipped onto the bar stool that was free next to the CSO, then leaned in mischievously. "If that rather handsome man comes back, I'll move for you," she winked slyly, then smiled.

"Sickbay is ready as well. I have a civilian doctor on my team so it should be interesting to see how that works, but so far Dr. Moors seems to be up to the task. I mean, she got through a Klingon physical and that says a lot," she quipped lightly with a soft chuckle, then took another sip from the wine goblet.

Gods the wine was going down smooth... maybe a bit too smooth.

McClane noticed that people were kind gathering close to Jurgen and himself, the last thing they needed was a slip up of who they were within Starfleet.  Their division depended on secrecy, not that its existence was ever denied, more to hide numbers and who was who. 

The blonde with Brown had stopped him ordering whiskey, which caused a smirk on TJ's face, but he would make no comment to his friend at that point.  Until he asked if a cat had got his tongue, to that comment her frowned and replied.  "Nope, just business to deal with, you know how it is."

He let out a sigh and turned back to Jurgen.  "Right stay alert."  He said quietly.  "Be on the look out for anything suspicious, or anyone."  His attention drifted back towards Charlotte, he was feeling bad about leaving the young lady like he had.  She'd been joined by a petite blonde, in an equally attractive but black dress.  "Let's keep a lid on this."  He finished quietly slapping Jurgen on the shoulder and moving back towards the ladies.

He came up behind the two of them and placed a hand in the small of their backs.  "Well that's business taken care of, would you ladies care for a drink?"

But before she could answer she felt a hand on the small of her back which soon followed by the sound of TJ's voice asking if they would like a drink. " Yes please " she replied happy that he was back.

Sam's eyes widened at the question of what to do, surely he didn't have to get drunk to enjoy himself.  "Well we can socialise Commander."  Her tone was subtle.  "These two gentlemen are clearly friends of yours and it would only be polite to talk to them, without dribbling."

John raised an eyebrow towards her then spoke to her for a moment.

"Dribbling?" Quzzed Brown then the crowd started getting full made him a bid unconfortable so he started walking away to get more he might have gotten himself on track but he is still suffering bits of Social anxity as it's the first even he been too since Kristi died and he starting to feel it yes he enjoys Samantha company but it not like it was with Kristi she knew how to steer the conversation

The petite doctor was going to respond to Charlotte, but before she could a warm  hand was placed on the small of her bare back, which sent a chill up her spine. Her golden head turned, then a pair of sapphire gems looked to whom the hand belonged to. It was the man from earlier that had been sitting with the CSO. The gentleman asked if he could get them a drink... oh why not?!

"Yes, thank you that would be nice. Hi, I'm Dr. Carter, Katelyn Carter," she offered with a soft smile to TJ, then shared a knowing look with her female companion. He was indeed nice.

John now seeing clearly just going though all that he missed in the Last Six months and seeing that what he missed he would never get back then he looked over and saw some food and he walked over and grabbed a plate with some finger foods he then slowly walked back by Samantha muching on some weird food he felt uneasy be around pepole again but then the body Language of TJ raised some red flags from the back of his mind he did'nt know what was going on he places his drink down and stood there.

"Lieutenant Jurgen Errikkson at your service miss and you are

"Take it easy Johnny, don't want you getting in trouble before you meet your new crew". Jurgen then made his excuses and left them as he followed McClane over to the two women.

He noticed the brunette seems very interested in TJ, so he spoke to the blonde first " would you mind if I joined you also? I don't really know anyone here".

Bonnie smiled slightly at the comment about her eyes. "That is indeed an interesting line." She paused for a moment, looking for a way to reply and then continued. "Well... That planet would be Betazed, I guess. However, I was raised in Los Angeles... And looking good? I'm not sure about that." Bonnie gave Christian a warm smile and took a sip of her water, the liquid had just about run out.

"Being a doctor can be interesting, but it can be slow when there isn't much going on. Nut hey, I guess that's a good thing. At least I know I'm doing my job right." Bonnie gave a slight grin. She finished off her drink and then looked over to the man he grinned at. She turned back and simply smiled, ignoring the grin towards the man.

"As for why they invited a civilian doctor aboard, I really couldn't tell you. However, I'll tell you as soon as I know." Bonnie finished.

Christian looked across at Bonnie and was fascinated by not only her eyes but her pale skin and the mystery of why she was on board.

"I do love a good mystery doctor" he leaned forward and asked if she wanted another drink. At the same time he caught scent of her perfume and it filled his senses.

"Not only do you look good Bonnie, you smell great too and if you don't believe me check inside my head". He didn't sit back and stayed close to her as the noise levels were rising.

Katelyn thought for a moment, then looked to the bartender.

"How about a bottle of Veuve Clicquot Rosé, if you have it," the petite doctor smiled.

"I do... Coming right up," the barman nodded with a pleased look, then went to fetch arguably one of the most recognizable names in the world of premium Champagne. The sparkling rosé was fruity, full-bodied, and had a stunning coppery orange hue. Perfect for a summer party or celebration as they were having.

TJ took his attention back to the Ladies and the Barman, Katelyn recommended a Veuve Clicquot Rosé, which the Barman acknowledged and went to fetch.  "That does sound fancy, but I have no idea with Champagne."  He said with a chuckle.  It did sound fancy and it probably had a fancy price label with it too. 

A moment later the man was back with the bottle, he placed it on the bar in front of TJ and between the two Ladies.  "Well it looks good to me."  He said sliding it over to the Doctor.  "Go ahead."  He said letting her have the honour of opening it.  "Aren't the corks lethal on these things?"  He asked with a grin.

"It's around seventy or so dollars, but well worth it I can assure you," the golden blonde grinned.

Everyone was looking to her to open the expensive bottle of Champagne. Kate complied reaching for a clean cloth on the bar top. "May I borrow this for a moment," she smiled at the bartender, then untied the wire atop the cork. The cloth was then placed over the top and with a gentle yet firm twist the cork came off with little waste. The doctor poured out the coppery orange bubbly fluid into the champagne glasses provided, then handed then out.

"Okay...Now who is going to give the toast?"

Charlotte listened as Katelyn ordered the expensive bottle of Champagne and remembered that brand from when her parents used to get it in for special events at the pub. She was also a little surprised when TJ asked Jurgen if he had work to do but didn't think too much of it as she didn't know much about the department they worked for. Regardless she still intended to continue having a good time and smiled when the Champagne was brought to them and Katelyn proceeded to open it. She hadn't wanted to interrupt so when she spoke about the Champagne and who should give the toast she looked at their small group.

" I agree it is my parents used to stock it occasionally and as for who should give the toast .. she stopped and looked at TJ " How about you TJ ?".

Bonnie smiled once again at the next compliment. "Oh yeah, I'm not going to look in your mind. That'd be too easy. I guess I'll just have to trust you." As with everyone, Bonnie's trust was hard to gain. "But for me to trust you, you'll have to prove yourself." Bonnie leaned forward towards him and lowered her voice. "And you don't look to bad yourself." She finished.

Jurgen saw the look between Brown and TJ and decided to ignore it "The system is automated sir and it will alert me to any results". He then sat down and introduced himself "as you heard My name I will just add my first name is Jurgen".

He looked around the table and yes maybe TJ would be mad at him but after their last mission both men were alive because of their trust of each other.

He could see the anger in the woman with Brown's eyes and wondered if he had misread the situation and she was not in a relationship with Brown, in which case he knew he had some apologising to do.


"I'll give you a toast" he said as he raised his glass "to absent friends and new ones" he held the glass to the middle of the table for the others to join the toast.

"Mystery doctor? I like that, it has a good ring to it." Bonnie winked at Christian, accepting the offer for another drink and taking it. She took a sip from the new glass of cool water and smiled. 'Well, I'm glad I've made one friend tonight. At least I have someone to talk to.' Bonnie thought.

Bonnie smiled once again at the next compliment. "Oh yeah, I'm not going to look in your mind. That'd be too easy. I guess I'll just have to trust you." As with everyone, Bonnie's trust was hard to gain. "But for me to trust you, you'll have to prove yourself." Bonnie leaned forward towards him and lowered her voice. "And you don't look to bad yourself." She finished.

"Give me time Bonnie and I will let you see I am not one to play games, trust works two ways and I prefer to earn it" . He then took a sip of bourbon before he spoke again.

"What does the Mystery like to do when not being a doctor"? He had noticed that she had not sat back either and smiled glad he had made a friend on the ship.

"Do you know in the 5 days I've been here this is the first time I've relaxed and you are the first person I've spoke to who wasn't on duty"? He took another sip and added "But you were worth the wait as I feel a lot better already".

"Well I'm glad to know that." Bonnie picked up her glass, just like Christian and took a sip.

"What does miss mystery like to do?" Bonnie paused for a moment to think about his question then looked up. "Well, I enjoy watching movies when I have the time to. I spend a fair time in the holodeck in a setting somewhere near to home in LA." Bonnie paused to take another sip. "I like to play the guitar in the holodeck too. It gives me an exit from the real world, just forget about everything and lose myself." Bonnie smiled. "Not too much really."

"I think you're for me too. I've kept to myself most of the time. But it's nice to know someone new to talk to." She paused for a moment and smiled. No one had complimented her so much bed other than her mother. She couldn't help but feel a little nervous. Bonnie ran her fingers through her silvery-white hair and then continued. "I'm glad I waited for this moment too. I think it was worth the wait for both of us." Bonnie finished.

Charlotte listened as Katelyn ordered the expensive bottle of Champagne and remembered that brand from when her parents used to get it in for special events at the pub. She was also a little surprised when TJ asked Jurgen if he had work to do but didn't think too much of it as she didn't know much about the department they worked for. Regardless she still intended to continue having a good time and smiled when the Champagne was brought to them and Katelyn proceeded to open it. She hadn't wanted to interrupt so when she spoke about the Champagne and who should give the toast she looked at their small group.

" I agree it is my parents used to stock it occasionally and as for who should give the toast .. she stopped and looked at TJ " How about you TJ ?".
Jurgen saw the look between Brown and TJ and decided to ignore it "The system is automated sir and it will alert me to any results". He then sat down and introduced himself "as you heard My name I will just add my first name is Jurgen".

He looked around the table and yes maybe TJ would be mad at him but after their last mission both men were alive because of their trust of each other.

He could see the anger in the woman with Brown's eyes and wondered if he had misread the situation and she was not in a relationship with Brown, in which case he knew he had some apologising to do.


"I'll give you a toast" he said as he raised his glass "to absent friends and new ones" he held the glass to the middle of the table for the others to join the toast.

The petite doctor's blue gaze went from Charlotte to TJ when she mention perhaps he should make the toast, then her golden head turned back to rather handsome Nord who in the meantime had sat down next to her. He peeped up and offered a toast.

Kate smiled as she raised her glass and clinked with his and the others, then closed her eyes for a thoughtful moment before taking a sip of the Champagne, which the effervescent always tickled her nose. Gods this sparkling rosé was good.

"Well Jurgen, I'm Katelyn Carter... and yes it's always a good thing to remember old friends, and to make new ones too."

Charlotte had to hide a grin when Jurgen was the one to offer up the toast first and what he said she agreed with thinking of those she had lost over time and how she was now enjoying life and making new friends like those around her okay maybe she was little interested in being more than friends with a certain someone but would just see how things went. " Agreed to absent friends and new ones " she said as everyone clinked their glasses together and smiled at everyone. She then turned her attention back to TJ as Katelyn got talking to the Nordic officer and took a sip of her champagne. " Definitely worth it " she said smiling at him.

McClane frowned at Jurgen, perhaps the system was automated and it would tell him if anything happened.  But the fact was he wasn't there in case, he was about to speak when the mention of a toast came.  Again Errikkson had jumped in and proposed the toast.  TJ raised his glass, the loss of old friends was a sore subject for McClane.  The words "I cannot authorise the mission McClane" rung out in his head.  Gowland was stretching TJ's last nerve with that, the Jerk didn't respect the code at all.  After the toast he took a sip of the beverage and placed his glass down.

"Ladies, if you'll excuse us, Mr Errikkson and I have things to do."  He looked towards Jurgen and pointed to the door.  "Let's go."

He stood to leave and then paused "that wouldn't be Doctor Carter would it". He asked with a smile on his face before TJ pointed him to the door.

John saw her hand rubbing his he looked at her and smiled then he spoke

"Well Do'nt know if you remember but I used to train the new requits into our Department this was before Steven was born and Kristi wa'nt me home every night" Finished John as he looked back at him "He is a Cocky son of a bitch thinks he all that and a bag of chips" Brown Finished

"Kind of."  Sam replied.  She frowned a little and tried to remember a little more.  It was a long time back, about 11 years to be precise.  She would have only been 13 at the time, but she did remember some bits about John training people.  But teens being teens, Sam had little to no interest in such things.  All she worried about was the latest fashion and hanging out with friends. 

Sam looked across to Jurgen, when Brown gave his description of the man, she could totally see that in Errikkson and was glad he'd walked away at that point.  Still didn't excuse poor manners.

John smirked when he remembered those days then he looked at Samantha for a moment remembering what she was like back then.

"I remember how one 13 Year Old  Samantha Lance demanded that your Brother-In-Law take you to Paris because you heard Starfleet has facilitates next to some Mall" John leaned back aganest the Bar looking around then looking over at her.

"Things have changed, instead of me taking care of you; it's the other way around you are taking care of me" Finished Brown then looking at her sweet face

The golden blonde in some small way was disappointed that Jurgen had to leave so soon, but duty called. She understood that all too well.

"Yes, that would be nice," Katelyn nodded with a sweet smile, then the Nord asked if she was Dr. Carter. "Guilty," she answered with a soft chuckle, noting a smile that was a cross between a cocky one and a smirk gracing his handsome features.

The CMO's gaze lingered for a moment on the two men leaving, then she turned her attention back to Charlotte. "Well... seems we have a bottle of Champagne to finish ourselves. Tsk, tsk," she quipped, then tipped back her half full glass.

"Well I'm glad to know that." Bonnie picked up her glass, just like Christian and took a sip.

"What does miss mystery like to do?" Bonnie paused for a moment to think about his question then looked up. "Well, I enjoy watching movies when I have the time to.

"I'm glad I waited for this moment too. I think it was worth the wait for both of us." Bonnie finished.

It had taken Grix by surprise just how easy it was talking to Bonnie as it wasn't exactly normal.for.him to be comfortable around females and right now he was so busy he wasn't planning to make that change.

But they had spoken so easily that he had to tell her something "I think it's so nice to be able to sit and talk to you like this without you immediately thinking I'm trying to get you into bed".

He took a last sip.of his drink and then Pointed to the others "do you think we should mingle"?

McClane waited until Jurgen and he were outside and out of sight, before turning towards Errikkson and shoving him back against the nearest wall.  He was not amused about his subordinates attitude, concerning the breech in their confidential files.  Perhaps it wasn't as serious as it could have been, but the point was someone was trying and they were targeting a particular person, that person was TJ. 

McClane held his right forearm across Jurgen's chest.  "Listen to me right now Errikkson, you know damn well that they'll probably try again and they'll likely try harder next time.  A simple alert wouldn't cut it if they did try, someone needs to be there and watching out."  TJ shook his head in disbelief and narrowed his eyes.  "And what is all this Doctor Carter stuff, I am warning you now, that if I find you have been using our computer facilities to find dates."  His face changed to a serious expression.  "Then you're for the high jump and don't even think about calling my bluff."  With a final shove McClane released the Lieutenant.  "Now to Headquarters, move."

TJ wasn't someone who would lose his cool often, in fact he was quite relaxed in general, but the situation had called a lot into question.

"Point one sir, I have already move files, replaced them with fake ones and doubled security on the originals and point two all I knew was doctor K Carter, not sex or how.they looked".

He then looked directly at TJ "So what hold has Johnny boy got on you, I saw that look and suddenly we had to.leave". He fell in alongside TJ  and walked towards HQ.

TJ stopped dead in his tracks and turned towards Jurgen.  "Whether you moved them or not doesn't matter, the thing is someone is trying to get at us, to me in particular.  Personally I would like to find out who and why."  McClane began to walk again, he was almost marching because he was that angry.  "How you got through selection and into Intelligence is beyond me."  He growled.

He asked what Brown had got on him, turning his face towards Jurgen, TJ looked confused.  "Got on me?  He hasn't got anything on me, you must have ticked him off somehow.  And we're leaving because of the breach."

Jurgen marched instep with McClane and listened as he continued to talk "How I got in is simple I'm better than anyone else, if i.hadn't set up our systems like I have your whole record would be all over by now as it is the most anyone has is a few appointments",

He carried on a few more steps before adding "it's not exactly hard to piss Brown off and as for the team well I have a feeling we will be going anyway".

He fell.silent as.he saw where they were and didn't want to say more before HQ.

McClane stopped and didn't face Errikkson, his jaw tensed as the urge to punch him flooded him.  The Lieutenant was getting under his skin with his arrogance and taking responsibility for setting up the entire file system.  "As far as we know that's all they got, nothing is ever so certain in this game.  You've been with the Division long enough, you should know this."  McClane said and resuming his stroll towards HQ.

"Brown is one of the most dependable operators that ever graced the Division, his leaving was a great loss to our community."  TJ explained.  "And at this moment I would have him with me, rather than a cocky son of a bitch like you."  His anger barriers had been broken, everything was pulling in different directions.  "As for us going, I wouldn't know what you mean Lieutenant and if I hear you talking about disobeying orders again, I will personally throw you in the brig and see to it that every book that can be thrown, will be thrown at you."

Bonnie smiled at his comment about being happy that she didn't think he was trying to sleep with her. "I wouldn't expect you to want to sleep with me." Bonnie paused and took a sip of the glass of water. 'Not yet, anyway.' Bonnie thought, looking back at him as he asked his next question.

"Mingle? With other people? I'm not sure about that." Bonnie said jokingly. She stood up and nodded. "Yeah. Let's go and talk to some other people. Lead the way." Bonnie said, finishing the last of her water and putting the empty glass onto the side.

Katelyn picked up the expensive bottle of Champagne out of the bucket of ice provided, then refilled each of their glasses.

"Charlotte... Did you get the feeling something was going on? I mean, the way the two men kinda left abruptly, and the looks that were going on between certain people in the room," she inquired curiously, then took a sip of the sparkling rosé.

"I don't know, just was odd is all... So I take it you were rather attracted to T.J.?" the golden blonde waggled her blondish-brown eyebrows subtly at her developing friend.

She did however agree that it was odd until Katelyn mentioned TJ and actually blushed when she then waggled her eyebrows subtly.

" I did and yeah it was definitely strange considering it looked like they were having a good time " she said pausing to take a drink before she admitted what she had thought of TJ. " Okay you got me I was I mean I am " she said stuttering slightly as she blushed again. She took a few seconds to compose herself " But I also noticed that you seemed to be taken with Jurgen too".

"Uh huh," Kate teased, flashing a knowing smile, then it was her turn to get hit with the truth.

"Well... Those crystal blue pools of his were pretty nice," the golden blonde grinned, then took another sip of the bubbly drink hoping it hid the giddiness she was feeling.

Ever since her fiancé had been killed, the petite doctor had sworn off men especially those that were in Starfleet as Brent had been serving with her on the USS Olympus as an engineer when the ship was destroyed at the Second Battle of Chin'toka during  the Dominion War.

Would she ever allow herself to love again... That was still to be determined.

The knowing smile that Katelyn gave her almost made her blush again until her friend mentioned Jurgen's eyes and didn't blame her at all for taking such a keen interest in him. Yes she had been in  a couple of relationships the longest lasting a year but she had to be realistic and with both men leaving so abruptly she wasn't sure if they would see them again.

" Yeah they were " she replied with a grin as she took another sip of Champagne " I must admit it would of been nice if they had stayed but with us shipping out tomorrow ... she stopped not wanting to think about it too much.  " Anyway how about we get something to eat and maybe some more drinks we might as well make the most of it" she said her smile returning with full force.

"Need not say anything else there. I so totally understand," Kate nodded, then took a sip from the just refilled flute.

Jurgen glared back at his  commanding officer "Well sir i wish I hadn't come back from there either but we did, so we can fight all the time or we  can make sure it wasn't all in vain. I would prefer the latter but that means this cocky son of a bitch and the officer with all the guilt have to get along".

He then shook his head and spoke.quietly " we survived and we lost friends I know that but it wasn't your fault or mine" he held his hand out to TJ "let's make sure they don't get forgotten".

Katelyn smiled at Charlotte's reply, then pushed back her chair and stood, smoothing over the black cocktail dress she wore. It felt good to relax and let one's hair down so to speak as the last few days had been very busy getting the ship ready for their upcoming three year mission. The CMO was filled with mostly excitement though a bit of dread, if honest. Memories of what happened on the Olympus during the war still nagged at her from time to time. Life could change on a dime, and sadly it had that day.

Josh was watching the crew mingle, he was slightly upset that his brother didn't show up but he knew that he was making sure the engines are at 100%. He finished his drink and walked over to the window and looked up at the sky.

The petite doctor shook those thoughts from her mind, then moved around the table to walk towards the entrance to the restaurant from the bar side. Sapphire blues noticed their XO standing at the window looking out at San Fransisco Bay as she was about to pass him by. Kate decided to stop and say hi.

"It's a beautiful view, isn't it, Commander... especially this time of the day with the sun starting to set?" the golden blonde said admiring it too for a moment, then she looked over to the CSO and back to Josh.

"Charlotte and I were just making our way into the restaurant to get a bite to eat... Would you care to join us, sir?" she asked politely. They hadn't really met outside of meetings so the doctor was not sure how he rolled in a casual setting like this; Hunter like or somewhere in-between.

Charlotte soon followed behind Katelyn and was looking forward to continuing the night and making the most of a decent meal before they shipped out. Of course she was a little apprehensive as this would be her longest stint out in space but she knew what signed up for and there was no point dwelling on things that hadn't happened yet. She smiled when they stopped near the XO and Katelyn invited him to join them and she had no issue with that plus it would give them a chance to hopefully get to know their first officer outside of the ship.

" Like Katelyn said your welcome to join us Commander " she said just as politely and waited for his response.

Jurgen glared back at his  commanding officer "Well sir i wish I hadn't come back from there either but we did, so we can fight all the time or we  can make sure it wasn't all in vain. I would prefer the latter but that means this cocky son of a bitch and the officer with all the guilt have to get along".

He then shook his head and spoke.quietly " we survived and we lost friends I know that but it wasn't your fault or mine" he held his hand out to TJ "let's make sure they don't get forgotten".

TJ stopped once again and stood akimbo, he exhaled through his nose and tried to control his failing temper.  It was alien to him being so agitated, sure Jurgen did have an edge to him, that at times people desired to punch out of him.  But he was skilled at what he did and McClane had no doubt about his abilities in that department.  His eyes narrowed when Jurgen mentioned guilt.  "I don't feel guilty, don't know what makes you think that, I just...."  He looked to one side and gritted his teeth.  "I believe."  His attention returned to Errikkson.  "In the Division code, never to leave anyone behind, dead or alive."

The two men shook hands and agreed to not let the fallen be forgotten or their sacrifices to be in vain.  "Alright, but please curb that attitude, or somebody."  His eyes flicked to one side and he did a little head swagger.  "Probably me, will knock it out of you.  savvy?"

John smirked when he remembered those days then he looked at Samantha for a moment remembering what she was like back then.

"I remember how one 13 Year Old  Samantha Lance demanded that your Brother-In-Law take you to Paris because you heard Starfleet has facilitates next to some Mall" John leaned back aganest the Bar looking around then looking over at her.

"Things have changed, instead of me taking care of you; it's the other way around you are taking care of me" Finished Brown then looking at her sweet face

Sam canted her head to one side and raised an eyebrow to John.  "What can I say, a girl has to shop you know."  On that she gave a smirk and remembered how nice he had been to her.  True he was Kristi's boyfriend, fiance and eventual husband, but he'd always taken the time to get closer, in a none romantic nature, towards Samantha.

Her expression changed, when the tone of the conversation changed and John talked about the role reversal.  She gave a slight curve of a smile and then moved close to him to wrap her arms around his center mass.  Being that she was nearly a foot shorter, the side of her head rested against his chest.  She held him tight for a moment.  "We'll get through this John, I know we will, I'll make sure Steven writes to you everyday."

John brought his Date with him and followed the crew into the Restaurant he knew that Sam said make friends but the only person he knew was William Hunter he walked up towards the two women putting his back to Joshua

After that John took Samantha to the restaurant, it looked as though he was ready to mingle with the crew he would serve with.  Two ladies sat at a table, one a petite blonde, the other a taller brunette.  Also the man who'd made the speech was there, he had quite a built body and a cheeky face.

With her arm hooked around John's, she stood in silence waiting to see if they were accepted.

Jurgen and TJ had made it about half way to HQ, when McClane finally calmed down and stopped.  They were outside another bar, it was a little loud, but it would suit them at that point.  Noise would cover anything they had to discuss, it would also be random for them to go in and reduce the likelihood of enemy agents monitoring them.

McClane led the way inside, it was a nice place and in fact he remember visiting it in his younger days at the Academy.  Most likely most of the young ones there, were probably Cadets, but there were others around his age too.

The two men stopped at the counter and TJ nodded to a Barman.  "Two synthales."  He ordered.

"When I said guilt, I meant a guilt we left not for what happened". With that he smiled again and added "pity we had to leave, I liked that Doctor Carter".

Josh could feel tension in the hand shake. They broke off the gesture and Josh nodded to him. They all sat down and Josh picked up a menu PADD. "Guess I'll have the country fried steak and mashed potatoes. It's been years since i had that, the replicator doesn't do it any justice.

Charlotte smiled when Commander Brown accepted her invitation to join them and even though things hadn't quite turned out like she had hoped they would at least there was now the opportunity to get to know some of those that she would be spending the next three years with. So far she had enjoyed Katelyn's company and saw her as a friend already, one who knew how she felt and didn't judge her because of her immediate attraction to a certain Starfleet Tactical Officer and looked forward their friendship developing as the only close friend she had so far was Charlie.

When the woman with Commander Brown smiled and introduced herself, Charlotte returned the smile " Pleased to meet you Samantha, I'm Charlotte Ingram" she replied before picking up a menu.

"Well the beyond is beautiful as well," Kate smiled, then answered Josh's question after he'd agreed to join them for dinner.

"I haven't been here in a while... but it was rather good then," she offered as they walked into the restaurant.

They were shown to a table that was set up for the four of them plus the CSTO and his date that Charlotte had invited along as well. There was room for a few more if another table was moved over should any want to join them too. It was good to get everyone together... well maybe.

"Like wise, I'm Katelyn Carter. Nice to meet you, and Commander Brown," the doctor canted her golden head at Sam and then to John.

With menu in hand, Kate quickly found what she had been craving and definitely couldn't get worth a damn with the replicator. "I'm going to have Steak Diane," she grinned softly as she set the menu back down, then picked up the water glass in front of her and took a nice sip.  Staying well hydrated was the key to lessening the aftereffects of drinking the next day.

Charlotte hadn't realised how preoccupied she had been with her own thoughts as she noticed the apparent tension between Brown and Shepard and hoped it wouldn't pose a problem or make anything awkward. However once Commander Shepard had decided what to eat followed by Katelyn after she had introduced herself to Samantha, Charlotte concentrated on the menu and perused unsure what she wanted.

After a few minutes she finally decided what she wanted " I think I'll go for the seafood platter " she said also picking a salad side dish. Noticing Katelyn take a sip of water thought she had the right idea as she certainly didn't want to be hungover and poured herself a glass from the jug on the table.

"Mingle? With other people? I'm not sure about that." Bonnie said jokingly. She stood up and nodded. "Yeah. Let's go and talk to some other people. Lead the way." Bonnie said, finishing the last of her water and putting the empty glass onto the side.

"Let's get there before the food is all gone" Grix stepped off his stool and  offered Bonnie his hand.

"I guess the xo is in charge of things" he smiled as they walked over and then called out "hold on two more incoming".

With that he offered his arm to Bonnie, he may appear arrogant but he was raised to be a gentleman by his parents.

TJ had laid face down in a deep slumber, the voice he heard startled him slightly, as his senses came back to him.  He'd seen Rachel enter the bar the previous evening and warned Jurgen, who was like a bloodhound when he saw her, she was out of Errikkson's class.  McClane however had known Rachel since their mutual Academy days, they'd remained friends throughout the years and saw each other occasionally.  Their relationship could only be classed as casual and not serious when it came to what they'd done the previous evening.  He felt much better following the previous two days, the meeting with Gowland and the attempt to access his A.T.D file had stretched his tension to the limit.

Rachel said it was his turn for breakfast and ran her nails down his back.  He rolled onto his back, after pushing the sheets to one side he sat up and looked for his clothing.  "I would love to stay, but got things I have to do."  She knew what his job was and was one of the few who had the security clearance to know.  So no doubt she would understand when he declined.  "How about we get together for lunch later?  We could try that seafood place on the Presidio?"

"Thankfully neither do i" she stood up.and walked to the bathroom  dropping the sheet as she did "If I can't tempt you to join me, lunch will be perfect as long as my uniform won't be a.problem".

With a.smile and a wink she disappeared into the shower. Her feelings for TJ hadn't changed and she doubted they ever would and as long as they both got what they wanted why would they.

McClane wasn't fooled by Rachaels expression, they both knew how things worked between them.  He actually would have loved to stay and spend the day unwinding with her, but duty as always beckoned.  "You wouldn't like me any other way."  He said with a smirk on his face.

He'd dressed his lower half, when Rachael tempted him to join her.  She liked the idea of lunch, but only if her uniform wouldn't cause a problem.  "Your uniform?"  He looked genuinely confused.  "I thought you said you weren't in court today?"  Or perhaps he'd missed something.  However either way she would look delightful.

Once he'd finished getting dressed, McClane made his way to the front door.  "I'll call you in a couple of hours and I'll arrange a time."  He said before exiting the apartment and heading down into the street.

There was an ever so slight chill in the air, so TJ lifted the collar on his jacket and placed his hands in his pockets.  His mind had switched back into work mode, although some of his stress was lifted, he was still preoccupied with the security breach.  Jurgen believed that whoever it was, had only accessed McClane's calendar, which wasn't specific with operational details.  However it would give a readout of where he'd been recently.

As TJ rounded a corner, he turned his head towards the alley and noticed the person laying face down.  "What the?"  He said looking up and down the connecting street.  If the person had been attacked, then their assailant was nowhere to be seen.  In all likelihood they'd been there all night.

With no more to do McClane jogged to the person's side, dropping to a knee he did two things.  One was to search for a pulse, the other was to reach inside his jacket and tap his comm badge.

"This is Lieutenant Commander TJ McClane, I need a medical and security team to my location immediately."

McClane's signal was scrambled and nothing was received by Starfleet Communications.  The humanoid rolled over and revealed himself to be a Cardassian, while three more ran into the alley, two took the unsuspecting Human's arms.  They pulled McClane to his feet and turned him to face the third person who was armed with a hypo.

No doubt the Commander would struggle and attempt to fight off his would be captors.

McClane was startled when the person rolled over, especially when he saw it was a Cardassian.  His comm badge gave off static and at that point knew it was a rouse.  Before he knew it he was pulled to his feet and turned around, to face another Cardi with a hypo.  Utilising the grip the two had on him, McClane tensed up and swung both feet towards the hypo-mans chest.

The third Cardassian who'd appeared with the hypo was struck full force by McClane's feet, he fell back gasped with breathlessness.  However that eventuality was catered for and the one who'd been laid down was likewise armed with a hypo.  He stood up quickly and approached McClane from behind and pressed the device against the Human's neck.  The drug in the hypo was none lethal and would only render the Commander into an unconscious state.

TJ didn't watch the Cardassian fall, his attention had to be on the two who held him.  He attempted to swing his right arm around and shove him into his buddy, but before he could get much movement something touched his neck.  Almost immediately his vision began to darken at the edges and gradually began to consume his sight all together.

"Help." His mind called out to no avail....
