[Ready Room-U.S.S Horzion]

John leaned back in his chair in his hand he held a Glass of Canadian Wiskey he allowed the golden liquid to touch his lips.

~Computer:Incoming Text Transmission~

John read the details on his screen it as a report sent to all Senior Commands about a Situation that threatens the Federation .

“Bloody Hell” Finished John

==//== John, your Services are requested by Federation Security details are being transferred

John’s Eyes widened as he read the information his glass fell to the floor breaking.

Josh was in command of the bridge while the captain was in his ready room.  He was going over duty assignments for an up coming mission to explore a moon that holds a pre warp colony.  He suddenly got a message from his captain.

==^== “XO report to Ready Room”==^==

"Aye sir I'm on my way." Josh looked at Lieutenant Conner. "Lieutenant you have the bridge. " Josh stood up and walked towards the ready room door.  It opened for him and he walked in.  "You wanted to see me sir?."

[Bridge]

Charlotte set foot on the Bridge just in time to see Josh going into the Ready Room, no doubt he had been called to see her husband for something. However thought if it was important then it would then be shared with the crew.

So for now she walked across and relieved Ensign Baxter so she could take over at the Science console. The Science Chief exchanged pleasantries as well as an update on recent scans which Charlotte then thanked her for before sitting down.

As she looked over the data in front of her, the nausea she had been experiencing on and off since finding out she was pregnant threatened to interfere but luckily she carried a remedy with her and quickly took advantage of it which then enabled her to carry on.

John looked at his First Officer his took a deep breath before speaking.

“Josh, Have a Seat” Finished John

Josh took a deep breath.  "This doesn't sound good sir. " Josh said with a slight chuckle.  He was half serious with that statement.  Usually when he is summoned either they are about to embark on a dangerous mission or if a crew member has done something terribly wrong.  Josh sat down and waited for the captain to speak.

John took a breath before speaking he unbuttoned his Tunic and placed his com badge on the Desk.

“What I am to tell you....Don’t tell my Wife it is a favour as my First Officer and my Friend” John stated then breathing

“Are you Ready to take Command of the Horizon are you ready for the Center chair” Finished John

Josh gave a puzzled look as he watched the captain place his com badge on the desk then asked a bigger question.  "The center seat sir?  I think so sir but I doubt command is ready for it after my decision with the Atlantis. We lost a good ship due to my actions. " Josh then thought to when he was captain of the Atlantis and the events that happened.  He snapped out of his thought when the captain started to speak again.

Josh felt a sense of pride as the computer announced that the Horizon was his ship.  Normally this is done with some type of ceremony but I guess with what is going on it isn't possible.  "Captain will you at least be addressing the crew with your departure?"

Josh leaned back in the chair.  "That you died.  Captain that is gonna destroy Charlotte. I will follow your instructions but I just hope that you and who ever is putting you on this assignment realizes the short term damage this will cause."

Josh then thought of something else as he stood up. "Captain if the crew isn't supposed to know about the change of command then how should we explain why you left the ship in the first place?"

“it’s been an Honnor Josh” Finished John as he returned the shake.
 John walked out onto the Bridge he held the back of the Command chair for several moments then headed towards Charlotte he took hold of her ha d and looked into her eyes a single tear fell onto her hand he looked at it then sighed letting go of her hand

Josh walked out of ready room right behind the captain.  He could tell that what ever it is he's doing might not end the way he hopes.  Since their marriage Josh has never seen the captain perform any public display of affection.  Josh sighed very lightly then sat in the captain's chair.  "Bridge to shuttle bay 1. Get a shuttle ready.  The captain is on his way. " moments later a chief petty officer acknowledged the order.  "Aye sir we'll have it ready before he arrives." Josh wanted to say something else but simply said.  "Acknowledged. " and closed the channel.

[Bridge]

When the doors to the Ready Room opened and her husband stepped out, Charlotte turned so she could see him properly. However was slightly confused by the way he was acting especially as he then approached her and took hold of her hand. He was never one to show any affection towards her unless they were alone so this was both out of character and welcomed at the same time.

That was until she saw the single tear fall onto her hand followed by the way he spoke and kissed her cheek before he turned and left the Bridge.

She sat there wondering if that had actually happened and she wanted to run after him and demand what the hell was going on and where he was going. But as Josh took the command chair and gave instructions, she was trying to keep it together as she spoke up.

" Commander Shepard, what's going on and why do I get the feeling that I'm not going to see him again?".

Josh looked up at Charlotte.  He wanted to tell her what John said but gave his word.  "He just wasn't looking forward to leaving this suddenly Commander.  He was trying to delay his trip till tomorrow but Starfleet Command wanted him there immediately.  He'll be back in a few weeks though." That last sentence nearly crushed him. He didn't like to lie let alone lie to a friend and colleague.

As Josh looked at her and told her that her husband simply hadn't been looking forward to leaving this suddenly and how he was trying to delay his trip until Command wanted him there immediately. Charlotte didn't know whether to believe him or not and had a horrible feeling that something was up and that both of them weren't telling her the truth.

However before she could say anything an alert sounded, informing her that the warp core had breached on the shuttle and ..... " No no no, oh god please no" she exclaimed, tears running down her face.

" The shuttle has ... no life signs ... no sign of the escape pod ...... her voice trailed off as she realised that her husband was dead and their unborn child was now fatherless.

Josh looked in amazement and shock.  His instinct was genuine.  "Scan for any life signs,  or even a body.

Josh slammed his fist on the arm of the chair.  Did he really just lose his friend or was this simply part of what he was told. Josh turned to Charlotte.  "Commander run scans of the debris.

Charlotte barely heard what was going on around her as Josh went into full Starfleet mode and followed protocol. Everything felt increasingly numb as they confirmed her information as she mourned the loss of her husband.

Wanting to shout and scream but instead the tears continued to fall as she was put in charge and asked to scan for the reason why the shuttle had exploded.

She knew that it was her duty to do so but not when it was her husband but admitted defeat as she turned back to the console and began the scans.

The results were surprising and could very well give her a small glimmer of hope that she desperately needed right now.

But it also made her question what the hell was going on as she handed the conn over and stormed into the ready room.

[Ready Room]

Not caring who Josh was talking too, she looked at the XO and spoke quickly and angrily.

" I want the truth and I want it now as there was no organic matter detected in the debris and I know when someone has been vaporised or not so where is my husband because he's not dead".

Josh felt a little angry with her storming into the ready room like this, however he fought the urge to snap her back into reality like she was a first year cadet. "Commander I know you're not stupid.  Why do you think I assigned you to that task instead of ops. I knew you wouldn't find any human remains.  This was to give you a little reassurance." Josh took a deep breath.  "John isn't dead.  He's on assignment.  More importantly it's some type of mission that if he's caught then the federation could deny all knowledge since records show he was killed.  John didn't go into specifics about the actual mission but during my times as a security officer the way this whole thing was handled shows the incredible risk that this mission holds.  You and I are the only ones on this ship that knows the truth.  No one else can know not even my brother and as much as I hate keeping things from him I must as a personal favor to John.  So I don't want to make this an order I want to give you the same courtesy as John gave me.  I'm asking as a favor not to reveal what you have heard.  Your report must say that small trace amounts of human DNA was found in the wreckage from the result of a warp core breach."

Charlotte didn't know whether to stand or sit as she looked towards Josh, grief mixed with anger and confusion clearly etched on her face as he began to speak. Slowly beginning to calm down as Josh acknowledged that she wasn't stupid and explained why he had asked her to do the scans and what was going on.

Then she experienced hurt and anger towards her husband for putting her through this especially being pregnant and wondered what was so important for him to not confide in her and let Josh be the one to deal with a hormonal and grief stricken wife.

As time went on, the information began to sink in properly and she was able to process exactly what had been said. Finally she sighed and let out her frustrations, still not happy with John but would do what was asked and keep it between the two of them.

She also understood the need to keep it a secret and the courtesy that he had showed her as she responded.

" I'm sorry but it was such a shock especially with me being pregnant and trust my husband to get involved in something like this and make things difficult" she replied softly. " However you can count on me to keep this a secret and my report will contain what you asked me to include".

Jackson sat at his station aboard the USS Valiant. He had recently transferred departments from Ops to Security and as such had taken some time off for training and was later assigned to the Valiant. Now he was awaiting the rendezvous with the USS Horizon so he could join their crew as part of crew rotation. Many of the crew members from the Horizon he had served with before either on the Atlantis or on the Horizon before his transfer and he was looking forward to seeing them again. Many of the senior officers he looked up to and had even inspired his change in department.

Captain's Ready Room

Josh sat in his chair.  He was starring at the extra pip that is supposed to go on his uniform.  He was hesitant to put it on at first.  He finally picked it up and secured it to his uniform.  Then a call from the bridge came in.  "Sir the Valiant just dropped out of warp and their captain sends their condolences and is requesting permission to begin transferring the replacement crew." Josh tapped a button on his desk.  "Acknowledged inform them to proceed once they are in range."

Captain's Ready Room

Josh sat in his chair.  He was starring at the extra pip that is supposed to go on his uniform.  He was hesitant to put it on at first.  He finally picked it up and secured it to his uniform.  Then a call from the bridge came in.  "Sir the Valiant just dropped out of warp and their captain sends their condolences and is requesting permission to begin transferring the replacement crew." Josh tapped a button on his desk.  "Acknowledged inform them to proceed once they are in range." Josh then opened another channel.  "Shepard to Commander Harriman.  Please report to transporter room 3 and bring Lt McQueen to my ready room."

[Security Chief's Office]

John was awakened from his thoughts by a hail from the Captain. He tapped his Combadge and replied. =/\="Understood Captain, I will see you momentarily."=/\= He then stood up and headed to the Transporter Room

[Transporter Room 3]

John stepped into the Transporter Room and stood next to the Chief at the console. He watched as different officers and crewmen arrived for their new assignment and as others prepared to leave for theirs.

Jackson was relieved and sent toward the transporter room as soon as the Horizon appeared before them. Smiling brightly as he went he made his way down and found himself in the transporter room waving politely to the operators as he was sent over. Appearing in the transporter of the Horizon. He smiled politely noticing the Chief Security Officer was there. Stepping forward to meet him he extended a hand calmly and a bit hesitantly.
“Lt. Jackson McQueen, it’s a pleasure to meet you sir. “ he said quickly still excited with his new department and with being back on the Horizon.

"It almost feels like I never left walking through these halls again," he said looking around at the familiar hallways and doors that made up the USS Horizon. "Though I have to admit, I am curious why the captain would want to see me. Any ideas sir?" he added admitting his worry.

After being dismissed by the Captain, Charlotte had returned to her console, her mind still not fully back to normal after experiencing several different emotions at once thanks to her husband's secrecy and the mission that he had embarked upon. Yes she was still a little angry at him for putting her through all of this but as she accessed the data she had captured, ignored the doubt and betrayal as she began her report and falsified it as requested.

Then she sat back and resumed scanning the immediate area.

"Attention all hands.  Secure your stations and proceed to cargo bay one for a group assembly.  Commander Harriman and Lieutenant McQueen you are still to report to my ready room." Josh then closed the channel.  He opened another to the captain of the Valiant.  "Hello Captain Shepherd what can I help you with." Josh let out a sigh followed by a smile.  "I was wondering if you could delay your departure for a little while.  I'm assembling the crew and all stations will be unmanned.  Could you simply keep an eye out for things and contact us if any ships or anything else out of the ordinary approaches."

As Charlotte heard the Captain's call for everyone to go to Cargo Bay One for a group assembly, she knew what that could mean and even though she couldn't bring herself to go, she knew that she had to force herself to do so.

So logging out of her console and putting it onto auto scan, the Science Chief and Captain's Wife, left the Bridge and got into the turbo lift.

[Cargo Bay One]

Once she arrived at her destination, Charlotte walked inside and waited for the others, pacing the floor slightly as she thought about her husband and unborn child.

The huge doors opened and Josh stepped in the room.  They all looked at Josh who was now wearing captain's pips on his uniform. 

"May I have everyone's attention please.

John stood in the Shadows seen but not seen he watched as pepole did there normal routine.Some were going to work some were on Holiday but him what was he here for, he was here to Protect them all by allowing them to die.

John has been here for Two Months under deep cover for the Organization to protect the Federation he had to fake his death only three pepole know he still alive

“Morning” Finished John as he walked by some pepole his black jacket covering some of his face he has a small beard not looking like himself he thought of the past few weeks of Him being here and everyone he knows left there in that Ship on that Bridge. John continues walking he stops near the Shran monument looking at it he thought what would the great Shran think of his Andor now.

John eyes darted as he saw the group he knew there was only a matter of time before he would be made by them he walked several feet towards a walkway in his pocket he held a small device it was to distroy it. John took a breath in order to protect pepole he was to let them die he knew in a matter of moments pepole will be dying in the streets. John took the device out and he placed it on the ground with his fake ID using it he distorted the ID so it couldn’t be read then he turned and walked away.


“Stop Pink Skin or we will kill you”

John turned to the left and headed down a small walkway as his steps quickened he knew he had little time within moments the firing started.

“Not today” Finished John as he turned and pointed his Phaser he fired back as the shots were firing one hit him in the leg causing him to fall he got two down and one came up and entered hand to hand combat with him getting some good hits on him he could feel the pain as he was hit in the end he took my mans kneif and killed him with it.

“Damm; lets hope Josh is fast” Finished John as he coughing up blood in his boot he took the beacon and activated it.

Bridge

Josh was sitting in the center seat.  He never thought he would have his own command again ever since that happened with the Atlantis.  Another thought kept running through his mind though.  Why was the Horizon on patrol near the Vulcan border.  Very few ships have come and gone.  Mostly just supply and medical ships, but non Starfleet or Vulcan.  It made no sense.  This region of space normally has several Vulcan science vessels arriving and departing plus a few other starships.  It almost feels like they're quarantined.  Josh pushed that thought out of his head.  He was about to ask Commander Brown something then remembered that she is on leave in her quarters.  Taking some much needed time off due to her pregnancy and everything else that has happened with her family.  His brother was off duty as well.  He's still adjusting to his new role as first officer but has done a remarkable job it.  Josh turned to face Harriman.  "Commander since we have all this time on our hands.  I want you to have your security teams practicing their shooting with hand phasers, and the rifles.  Also have them do it individually and then broken up into squads. Have Lieutenant McQueen run that task.  I'm curious to see how he's handling his new role."

"I wanted to brother.  John asked me as a personal favor.  He was reluctant to let Charlotte know but with her being pregnant he didn't want her to lose the baby due to the stress.  It was hard enough on her watching the shuttle being blown up and her thinking John was on there.  He didn't want to put anyone at risk with the type of mission he was on.  I don't even fully know the details of his mission."

Josh simply looked at his brother and the turbo lift stops and it's doors open.  "Guess I'll need to hit the gym after meeting with John." They walked into sickbay and saw John laying on the bio bed awake and alert. "John I know you just went through a lot but what the hell are you doing here and why do you look like you just went through hell?"

[Browns' Quarters]

At five months pregnant Charlotte was finally over the morning sickness and was actually beginning to enjoy her pregnancy. However there was one person missing from getting to experience this with her and even though she knew he was still alive that didn't make it any easier.

In fact because of the events surrounding her husband's fake death it had led to some issues which had resulted in her having to take leave. She would of preferred to be at her station and running the Science department but medical had done the right thing so she could keep her unborn child.

She was however hoping that when she went to her next appointment that she would be able to return to duty and also find out the gender of the baby.

It was something for her to look forward too especially without John around and give her focus admist all the heartache and loneliness.

With that in mind she got dressed and prepared to leave for Sickbay.

Normally she would of ran to him and wrapped her arms around him but not this time. All of the anger and frustration that she had felt because of what he had done resurfaced once more as she let it all out.

" You've been gone for two months and that's all you have to say to me!!" She said angrily.

" Do you realise what you put me through and how it's affected me with the worry and the anger not to mention the stress of it all that forced medical to put on rest leave so I didn't lose the baby".

She stopped to try and calm down and rested a hand over her bump whilst she waited for an answer.

The moment he removed his shirt and she saw the bruises and signs of broken ribs, she looked at him not sure what to say other than show him concern. However when he told her that he needed to complete the mission first, she knew how stubborn her husband could be and that if she tried to persuade him otherwise it wouldn't work.

So when he asked for some help to get into a clean uniform, she had to relent but not before saying what she had to.

John turned to the Caprain and replied. “Nothing to report sir all stations report ready.”

"No need to contact me Sir, I'm already here"  Grix said as he stepped from the turbolift, He walked slowly down to the Ops console and took his seat with a brief nod to the ensign who he was replacing.

John laughter a bit then looked at her for a moment

“Well after this I will have lots of time off” Finished Brown smiling

[John & Charlotte's Quarters]

Charlotte didn't know how to react at first to her husband's laughter but at least he seemed happy enough despite his injuries and coming back from the dead.

Going over to the desk, she grabbed the medkit and walked back to where John was stood as he then told her that he would have lots of time off after all of this was finished.

" Good because that means you'll be around more especially when little one arrives".

"Now let's get you sorted as I've got a feeling that I'm not going to make that Sickbay appointment" she remarked as she took out a hypo spray and dermal regenerator.

After patching him up the best she could until she could get her husband to Sickbay, Charlotte listened as John explained why he would have so much time off.

" Whatever happens I'll be by your side " she replied soflty and helped him with his uniform.

When he then told her that they needed to get going and that she needed to learn about what was happening, she had guessed right after all.

So she followed her husband to the Bridge.

[Bridge]

Charlotte was right behind John as he stopped himself from asking for a report. Knowing how hard it was going to be now that he was no longer in command. So she stayed by his side and waited for whatever happened next as she still was on medical leave.

“I agree with the commander. If we do this the plan has to be absolutely fool proof and even then it’s a risk I’m not sure we can take.” I’m all for helping people who need it but going against the Prime Directive is a huge decision one that I think the whole crew should have a say in. At least give them a chance to leave the ship before hand so they can avoid being court martialed.” He said looking around the room before hesitating on Captain Brown. “By the way welcome back Captain.” He added a bit nervously.

The joviality that had taken place on the Bridge minutes earlier, soon diminished the moment they stepped into the Observation Lounge and her husband explained everything about his secret mission that had taken him from her and made her lie about his supposed death.

Quietly observing and listening to the conversation as suggestions were made and objections raised. The Science Chief understood the ramifications of their actions and yet despite all of that and the possibility of consequences after didn't phase Charlotte. In fact as she watched Grix stand up and leave, she wouldn't be following him even as her unborn child made its presence known by moving within her.

" You can count me in as well because what we're about to do is the lesser of two evils and if it gives Andoria the chance to survive then we need to try and help them whatever the cost ".

John was sitting in his chair taking in all that was going on around him, the return of Captain Brown, the fact that they had to break General Order One in order to save Andor. He watched as many of the Senior Staff either disagreed or walked out of the meeting.

Being a bar certified JAG and being a security officer he knew that what was being proposed would end all their careers, but John knew it was the only way to keep Andor in the Federation. He look at the Captains and spoke up.

“Sirs, I agree that this mission, could end our careers if it’s discovered that we were involved. But I also know that this is the only way to keep the Federation intacted. I will stand by you all the way, because it is my job to protect my Captain or Captains in this case at all cost. And it is also my job to protect the Federation and this more then qualifies .

John liked Charlotte's idea but he agreed with the Captain that is was too risky. He began to rack his mind on the different ways to stop the bombing short of contacting the authorities. He thought they could send in a covert team lead by Captain Brown to seek out the treat and end it before anyone knew they were there. They could also send down a few officers to the Federation Embassy to keep an eye out from the heart of the government. having officers there would explain the Horizon being in orbit. Once he had the idea worked out in his head John spoke up with his idea.

"Excuse me Sirs, I have an idea that could work of we are careful. If we send in a covert team lead by Captain Brown to take out the treat directly while at the same time sending a group to the embassy in the Capital to keep an eye out for anyone who is involved and getting nervous that they plan is stalled. Having a team there would also give validity to the Horizon being in orbit." he said looking at the staff around the table.

Josh relieved the Lieutenant that had command of the bridge during the meeting.  He sat down looked over a PADD with some reports on it.  Mostly just typical starship operations nothing major.  There was one from engineering that they're requesting to align the dilithium crystals.  This action was denied due to the upcoming mission.

Jackson stood and left the lounge and the meeting behind him. Admittedly he was in a bit of shock, he wasn't expecting to be the tactical officer on the ship for this mission but he was glad he could help out some. As soon as he reached the security station he relieved the on-duty crew member and took their place on the bridge once there he looked fondly over to the helm where another flight officer was checking over monitors and looking like he was enjoying every second of it. Yeah it's pretty great being at the helm, but I'm glad I made the change. after looking over the general security of the ship through his monitors, he began pulling up any relevant information he could find about Andor, building layouts for all of the buildings relevant to the mission, a city layout so that he could guide and help the away team if they needed to make a quick getaway and it wasn't safe enough to beam them out. Oh man, Jacky what did you get yourself into this time. he thought to himself as he poured over the research he was doing wanting to think of every possible outcome before the mission started so he had a game plan for anything that could happen though there really was no way for that to happen

Once they were dismissed from the briefing, Charlotte knew that her appointment with Sickbay would have to be rescheduled as she returned to the Bridge. So once she was back at her console, she spoke with the CMO via message then turned her focus to the scans and collecting as much data as possible regarding their destination.

Wanting to be as prepared as possible before the Away Team beamed down to the surface.

KnodwI returned the look back to his brother, then placed his hand on his shoulder.

Family is always first on my mind. That makes me work even harder.   Do not worry to much, I will be armed well.  Just remember the last time we had bloodwine together, you did not far so well., he said with a grin.

As the away team prepared to leave, Charlotte looked towards her husband, wishing she could have a proper goodbye but she had to remember protocol. So instead she watched them enter the lift, just as their unborn child made its presence known.

Placing a hand over her bump, before turning back towards her console. Hoping that work would distract her from worrying too much, especially after already thinking that she had lost him once.

So trying not to think too much, she focused on monitoring the scans and the team as they departed.

Josh saw Charlotte, the worry and hurt in her eyes could be seen from the other side of the galaxy. He walked up to her and placed a reassuring hand on her shoulder.  "He'll be fine.  They're all gonna be just fine." Then he lightly patted her shoulder.  "Mr. McQueen maintain routine scans of the area. We don't know how far this moment has really gone and if they have starships available.  Keep us at yellow alert but no defensive grids online, but available within seconds."

Charlotte had been completely zoned out as she focused on the readouts in front of her. That was until she felt a reassuring hand on her shoulder and looked up to see it was Josh, who had comforted her, with not only his gesture but his words.

" I know they will, its just hormones I guess and not wanting to lose him, like I thought I had" she admitted as Josh then issued an order to Sec/Tac.

" I'll be able to monitor the team from here, unless there's something else that you need me to do?".

Charlotte listened as Josh told her to watch the away team's backs and to send any abnormal readings directly to her husband. The Science Chief also understood why the Captain also needed a record of them.

" Understood, I'll inform you straightaway if I get something or if anything changes with the team".

Jackson looked to the captain and nodded.
"Yes, Sir." he said in response as he began setting up the request and making the announcement that the ship is moving to yellow alert and to the rest of the security team to have defensive grids on standby.

The Away Team materialised in the prearranged beam down spot.

Josh was sitting in the command chair.  "Transporter room keep a lock on the away team. On my order or anyone else from the team beam them out immediately." "Acknowledged sir." A young ensign said.  Josh stood up and walked towards the view screen then turned around.  "If I may have your attention please.  This mission has very serious risks not only to us and our ship but to the very heart of the Federation as well.  If things take a turn for the worse we could be blamed for numerous charter violations, possibly causing an interstellar war among other outcomes.  If there's any officer here that does not wish to take part in this please say so now I'll enter it into the ships log and you'll be relieved of your duties not as a punishment but for your protection." Josh finished his speech and looked around at his officers waiting to see if anyone would like to be dismissed from this mission.

A myriad of different emotions threatened to break through Charlotte's resolve. Each one battling for dominance especially worry and concern over her husband and those who had beamed down with him.

Add to that the pregnancy and she knew that she could erupt any minute or break down. However managed to pull herself together and turn away from her sensors as the Captain spoke.

Her mind already made up, so knew immediately that she wouldn't be leaving the Bridge anytime soon.

She couldn't speak for anyone else as she looked at Josh with determination and resolution.

" Your orders Captain ?".

Charlotte listened as Josh asked her to continue carrying out his previous orders. Understanding the need to make it look as though she was simply scanning for unexplained phenomena. She also didn't envy Josh either with what he had to do if they were discovered. Hopefully monitoring the situation  would keep her distracted from worrying about her Husband and the away team.

"Understood Captain and I don't envy you, although I'm here to help with that if needed" she replied and returned her focus to her console. Resuming previous scans and monitoring those on the surface.

"Good news, I can still detect all of their life signs but  no other ships are showing as being in the vicinity at the moment".

John looked in the directions that the Captain pointed out. He knew he would be the logical choice to disarm the bombs because of his munitions training. "I agree with the Commander Sir, I can disarm the bombs with little to no problem." he said as he looked at the security team that had accompanied the three senior officers.

Josh didn't expect to be caught so unprepared.  No warnings went off about any approaching ships. Could they be using cloaking technology.  Josh thought. Regardless one of his officers was injured but they still had a duty to perform. "Return fire target their weapons and engines."
