Cmdr_K_Ramsey looks at the two officers
Commander_Slade: " Greetings gentlemen.....I am afraid the two of you are in serious jeopardy"
LtCmdr_Putnam: "ok...lets move the saucer forward 7 meters and see how bad the damage is"
Commander_Slade: " I think this would go much easier if you confessed your crimes...then I could work out a plea"
Cmdr_K_Ramsey: " jepardy? well its serious but come on..."
Capt_Sloane sits at a table .... looking out the window of the room
Cmdr_Wildstar: i'm not confessing to something didn't do
Cmdr_K_Ramsey shakes her head and sighs at the prosecutor
Commander_Slade shoots Ramsey a glance....smirks
Cmdr_K_Ramsey: " get to the point her Concilor... are you offering a deal?"
Capt_Sloane slams his fist down hard on the table
Capt_Sloane looks Slade directly in the eyes
Capt_Sloane: "no deal ......"
Cmdr_K_Ramsey: " oooo I LOVE theatrics... dont you..." looks at the two officers
Commander_Slade: " Unfortunately for you ...Luke I believe it is....you are in over your head. Evidence alone will convict you. Your cohort in this heinous crime however suffers lesser charges, and if testifies against you, I can work out a deal for him, with no penal time"
Cmdr_K_Ramsey: " I do not think they want to play your little back stabbing game.."
Cmdr_Wildstar: well evidence or not...i didn't do it
Cmdr_K_Ramsey looks at Sloane and Wildstar... "gentlemen?"
Commander_Slade: " I can't offer anything Councilor, I have my orders to follow.....unless these two offer a confession...this is going to trial"
Cmdr_Wildstar: then we go to trial
Capt_Sloane: "then it goes to trial ...."
Cmdr_K_Ramsey: " of course we are going to trail..."
Cmdr_K_Ramsey: " i still have some faith in the honor of fleet officers"
Cmdr_K_Ramsey: " now why would these two blow up a building they were in?"
Commander_Slade: " I don't want to drag these two through the mud...they have done alot for the Federation...and maybe they thought they were doing right thing here....but the law is the law"
Cmdr_Wildstar: yea...what's my motive?
Cmdr_K_Ramsey: " you have the burden of proof Sir... We only have to defend"
Commander_Slade: " I believe I know your motive Mr Wildstar.......but I will leave that until the trial"
Cmdr_Wildstar: well let me know also
Commander_Slade: " I know my job Ramsey......do yours...tell these guys to make a deal"
Cmdr_K_Ramsey: " ahh" she sighs.." you still have to disclose these things... it is the law"
Cmdr_Wildstar: like we said...no deal
Commander_Slade: " it is not my job to help my opposition Mr Wildstar...if Ramsey knows I know your motive...she can prepare a proper defense against it"
Cmdr_K_Ramsey: " my office is still awaiting your evidence concilor"
Commander_Slade: " My beliefs need not be disclosed Commander, only evidence I have gathered"
Commander_Slade: " You know the evidence Commander...and you work in same office"
Cmdr_K_Ramsey: " we have the right to hear your pretrial motions... and that means your so called motives"
Commander_Slade: " I have no motives...and you can hear my pretrial motions at the evidentiary hearing"
Capt_Sloane: "Commander Slade ... if you think you have the evidence to try us ... then do so ... but I can guarentee that when this is all over .... both Wildstar and I will be cleared .... is that CLEAR?"
Cmdr_Wildstar: well well cya there then
Cmdr_K_Ramsey: " then we have nothing to discuss.." gets up
Commander_Slade: " Mr Sloane...you realize right now that your whole career is over, whether you are aquitted or not....this looks bad. You also are in no position to order me around. I hate that this little meeting has come to this...but apparently I am wasting my time...so I will leave you to your defense"

Cmdr_Xanatos: "Yes, we are definitely in the dark, no pun intended..."
Ryan Merrick walks into the room, his demeanor more mature than the last time they all had seen him.
Capt_Xendra: Son... how are you?

Cmdr_Xanatos: "Hello Ryan... Hello Suran..."
Capt_Xendra: Welcome aboard Suran
Ryan " We have uch to discuss mother"
Capt_Xendra: Well, lets get started then, shall we...
Suran nods to the officers
Ryan takes a sit furthest away from his mother
Suran stands by the table, not sitting down
Ryan " im sure you have been aquinted with The Shadows?"
Capt_Xendra: Our encounters with these "shadows" have more destructive than iformative
Cmdr_Xanatos: "Unfortunately, yes..." (scowls)
Ryan " Yes i see that "
Ryan " Suran, give them the data you showed me"
Suran hands a padd to the Captain and the cmammander
Capt_Xendra: THe only thing we really know about them is appearantly their ships ar somehow.... alive
Ryan " As you can see Mother, The Shadows are attacking every Rom and Vulcan planet, starbase or vessel in the outlying ares"
Cmdr_Xanatos ACTION: reads the PADD
Capt_Xendra ACTION: looks over the PADD
Capt_Xendra: Why only the Romulens and Vulcans?
Ryan " He nly reason they attacked the Fed outpost near the Neutral Zone was that a Vulcan was posting there"
Cmdr_Xanatos: "What makes them such targets for searching out even individuals?"
Suran: " we suspect.... "
Ryan " There was though an indication of where they were coming from though...."
Cmdr_Xanatos: "Where is that?"
Ryan " Near Torok Nor...... Planet Bajor"
Cmdr_Xanatos: "The Alliance... I'm not surprized..." (growls)
Ryan " Theres more....... and your not gonna like this Mother"
Capt_Xendra: Could they have came through the wormhole?
Capt_Xendra: hmmm, more bad news
Ryan " It seems your Federation is involved with it in some way or shape"
Cmdr_Xanatos: "Involved? How???"
Ryan looks at Xanatos and sweeps his mind, sensing his emotions
Capt_Xendra: Thats impossible, I would have known
Cmdr_Xanatos ACTION: looks quizzically at Ryan's futile and empty scans of him
Capt_Xendra ACTION: stands and paces room
Ryan " We dont know how deep this goes"
Ryan stands and goes to a window
Capt_Xendra: OK so how are we supposed to be involved?
Cmdr_Xanatos: "Another traitor... this time a bit higher it seems..."
Suran: " the federation is always involed..."
Ryan " We have no knwledge of who or what it is"
Ryan looks out the window in a dazed look then turns around quickly
Cmdr_Xanatos: "How do you REALLY know the Federation IS involved then, if you don't know who?"
Ryan " Tell me Mother..... is Mister Cole on board this vessel?"
Capt_Xendra: Umm, yes we picked him up off the outpost that was attacked
Ryan " And was he here during the attack?"
Capt_Xendra: yes, plus we have a Vulcan aboard too
Ryan walks toward the door, not looking at anyone but the door

Ryan " That is the reason you were attacked"
Suran looks at ryan
Ryan ' Suran, go talk to her.... i will be with Mister Cole"

Capt_Xendra: Cole is the one that told me that theses ships were alive.... he sensed them
Ryan exits the room
Capt_Xendra AcTION: Looks at Xanatos
Capt_Xendra: Commander, les go to yellow alert, untill we can find out more

Lt_O`Shay starts scans...."Forehead still....pronounced..."
LtCmdr_Cole: "Damnit O'Shay. Can I go yet??'--impatiently
Lt_O`Shay: "Brain still....somewhat functional"
Lt_O`Shay: "No, sit still"
Lt_O`Shay: "Your nortryptaline leves are elevated. Are you having headaches again?"
LtCmdr_Cole: "Your funny 'Doc'.... I' fine. Just let me do my dan job."
Lt_O`Shay: "And your hypothalmic activity is elevated. Psychic distruption."
Lt_O`Shay frowns..."What are you not telling me?"
LtCmdr_Cole ACTION laughs bitterly,"Headaches are the least of my problems...."
Lt_O`Shay: "Cole, damnit, I can't help you if you don't tell me everything that's wrong. I'M not psychicm you know."
LtCmdr_Cole ACTION looks towards a wall, feeling a presence searching
Dr_Kelen_Zeta ACTION walks into Sickbay, stops for a moment and takes in his surroundings.
Lt_O`Shay looks up from Cole..."Can I help you?"
HovVaj walks up to O'Shay and Cole "I AM psychic as you call it, O'shay....just give us something for the headaches and let us handle this problem our way
LtCmdr_Cole: "What's wrong? I'll tell you. Half the time I don't know what the hell is going on in my own head.......since the Shadows came...."
Dr_Kelen_Zeta: "Dr Kelen Zeta, newly assigned CMO, and you are?"
LtCmdr_Cole ACTION rubs at his right temple, watching
Lt_O`Shay looks at Hov, then at the doctor, not sure who to yell at first..."I'm Doctor O`Shay. A pleasure, I'm sure, at some other time"
HovVaj looks coldly at Cole "Mr Cole...we can handle this ourselves..."
Lt_O`Shay: "The next time you pass out while on the bridge will be conveniently scheduled then, Hov?"
Lt_O`Shay: "Shall I put you down for 0600 hours on Tuesday?"
LtCmdr_Cole: "I've been doing just that. It's hard having to constantly tell yourself that no you didn't actually climb a mountain when you were 14. '
Dr_Kelen_Zeta ACTIONS stands while watching the conversation
HovVaj: "humour in it's most primative form, O'Shay...I expect more from you.....a moderate pain killer would be fine"
Lt_O`Shay looks at Cole, then at the new doctor. "Do you have experience with psychic trauma? Both of these two are suffering."
LtCmdr_Cole: "I've had that thought in my head a few times recently..."
Dr_Kelen_Zeta: "Whats seems to be the problem?"
HovVaj: "If you are having those visions, Cole....we do need to team on this"
Dr_Kelen_Zeta: "As a matter of fact I do , tricorder please"
LtCmdr_Cole action looks irritably at the door,"Who the hell?????" in a low angry voice
Lt_O`Shay gestures..."That drawer over there"
LtCmdr_Cole: "They aren't visions Hov..... they're daned memories!"
Dr_Kelen_Zeta ACTION grumbles and gets it himself
HovVaj: "if you did not do the action, they are not memories....most illogical, Mr Cole"
LtCmdr_Cole: "How can I have memories of things I didn't even do?"
Dr_Kelen_Zeta: "Okay mr Hov? I need time alone with this patient, visiting hours are over"
Lt_O`Shay: "The best I know how to do is help with the pain, and inhibit your subcortical function to decrease your receptiveness. I'm not sure you'd like that, though"
LtCmdr_Cole: "Who gives acrap about logic! I know what memories feel like. Thay ARE memories!"
Dr_Kelen_Zeta ACTION opens Tricorder and begins his intial scan on Cole
ACTION: ----THE DOOR TO SICKBAY SLIDES OPEN AS RYAN MERRICK WALKS IN, HE SANS THE ROOM SHARPLY WITH HIS MIND---
HovVaj: "That is an implanted vision, Cole....an old, old trick....if I were sure it would not blow a fuse, I'd do it to O'Shay right now , just to prove the point"
Lt_O`Shay: "This isn't sickbay, it's Grand Central Station. Can I help you, too?"
Dr_Kelen_Zeta: "GENTLEMEN ENOUGH!!"
ACTION: RYAN HIS HEAD TURNS SLOWLY AS HE FOCUSES ON COLE---
LtCmdr_Cole ACTION snaps his gaze to the door, pulling up all his mental defences
Ryan " I can help my self Docotr...thank you"
HovVaj steps away and scans Ryan Merrick
Lt_O`Shay catches the resemblance then hides a smile..."Ahhhh...I'm sure you can."
Ryan " Cole, dont dent=y my abailties, i am much stronger than the last we met"
LtCmdr_Cole looks Ryan over and says in a guaded tone,"How are you Ryan?"
RYAN STEPS CLOSER TO COLE
Lt_O`Shay looks at Hov..."Can you implant the memory about the sunny beach and the tanned cabana boy?"
Dr_Kelen_Zeta: "Umm Excuse me, can i help you?"
LtCmdr_Cole: "I've grown too. What d you want?"
HovVaj steps further away from Cole and Merrick
Dr_Kelen_Zeta ACTION gets an annoyed look
Ryan ' You saw then didnt you...ahhh yes you did.... i can se your visions"
HovVaj: "not today....but I will teach you how to do that yourself, Celia"
LtCmdr_Cole: "They're memories damnit... though I don't know how they could be."
Dr_Kelen_Zeta: " I said visiting hours are over! O'Shay get these ppl out of here..NOW"
Ryan ' We must talk Marcus..... in private. These medical devices wont help you, but i can...."
Dr_Kelen_Zeta: "I will determine that!"
LtCmdr_Cole: "It came from nowhere, screaming into my mind. Before I had a chance todefend myself."
HovVaj steps to an alcove out of the group, but never takes her eyes off Merrick
Ryan Looks at Zeta " Will you tell the good doctor what i am capable of Mister Cole"
LtCmdr_Cole: "You'll help me like you did Ellion?"
Ryan " Trust me Cole..... im here to help you"
LtCmdr_Cole: "He'squite capable of hurting you to get his way Doc. Stay back please."
Ryan ' Please Cole.....come with me"
Dr_Kelen_Zeta ACTION closes tricorder and hands it to O'shay...
Lt_O`Shay: "Doctor Zeta, Hove is technically also a patient, I wouldn't eject her quite yet, and I don't think I'm going to forcibly evict the son of an admiral from a sickbay that is not mine."
Lt_O`Shay: "If you have a catapult, you might try it."
HovVaj telepathically....NO COLE!
Ryan steps back toward the sickbay door
Lt_O`Shay takes the tricorder, tosses it absently, catches it again
Dr_Kelen_Zeta: "Lt..this is my Sickbay..i will not have it run like a Circus!"
Ryan " Cloe?"
LtCmdr_Cole: "I'd love to Ryan. But I haven't been cleared to leave sickbay. You know how I'm a stickler for rules."
Ryan " Your cleared.... trust me"
LtCmdr_Cole ACTION looks to the Doc's,"Am I cleared?"
Lt_O`Shay looks at Zeta..."I believe you are no longer under my care, Marcus"
HovVaj telepathically NO COLE!
Dr_Kelen_Zeta: "Mr Cole you are cleared for the time being..until i can get some results from the scans."
LtCmdr_Cole ACTION messages back to Hov,"Yes, he won't hurt me... I don't think..."
LtCmdr_Cole: "Thank youDoc."
LtCmdr_Cole ACTION gets up and follows Ryan
HovVaj shakes her head and glares at Merrick
LtCmdr_Cole: "I'll contact you later Hov. To discuss our condition."
Dr_Kelen_Zeta ACTION picks ups his bag, and heads to his office

WHile decorated highly in the past, they also show a past of insurrection and rebellion against the standing Federation. Both men are hot heads your honor. They act without thought. The government stands on its belief that these men should be remanded into custody and not relesed of their own recognizance."
judge looks over Lsoane and Wildstar again
Cmdr_K_Ramsey smiles at slaone and wildstar.. sits down taps a pointer she is holding in her left hand
Cmdr_Wildstar sits and listens intently
Judge " And what proof do you have sir that these gentlemen will run as you say?"
Commander_Slade: " Furthermore, the fact that their careers are on the line is all the more reason for them to flee. They know their guilt. They have no families, like defense council says. The COmmander's brother is a rebel who joined with Romulans for awhile, and Sloane has lost countless friends and family due to the Borg incursion. They are obviously ready to leave the jurisdiction"
Cmdr_Wildstar a look of disbeleif crosses his face
Cmdr_K_Ramsey: " Sir.. interjection?"
Commander_Slade: " Both of these men have proven they can't be trusted as when they served on the Raven sir. Governments evidence A sir. There service record aoard such vessel shows exemplary, but also misconduct"
Judge " I see here under Cpatian Xendras logs that you have posted to this court Mr. Slade that these men were involved in some shape with the death of Admiral Cartwright?"
Jusge" Denied Commander Ramsey"
Commander_Slade: " that is also correct sir. They were dissidents involved in such attack"
Judge loks at Slaone and Wildstar
Judge " Thank you Commander Slade that will be all"
Commander_Slade: " The only reason they got away with that murder was the interjection of the returning Admiral Merrick"
Cmdr_Wildstar sits and shakes his head
Cmdr_K_Ramsey: " dissidents?"
Commander_Slade adjusts glasses
Judge " The court no reconizes Captain Slaone and Lt Commander Wildstar, have you anything to say on your behalfs before motion for bail?"
Capt_Sloane stands ....
Capt_Sloane: "we do your honor ......"
Cmdr_K_Ramsey stands by sloane
Judge " You may prceed"
Capt_Sloane: "thank you your honor .... I speak for both Lieutenant Commander Wildstar as well as myself when I say to this court ....... we both love the Federation dearly ....... we've put our lives on the line for it many times ..... the last thing we would EVER do is be a party to it's destruction ....."
Judge " Anything to add Mister Wildstar?"
Cmdr_Wildstar: "yes sir"
Capt_Sloane: "we both intend to strenously fight the charges and specifications leveled against us and we will be exhonerated ..."
Judge " Proceed"
Cmdr_Wildstar: "were innocent"
Capt_Sloane smiles at Luke
Cmdr_K_Ramsey smiles at both the officers
The Judge stands " This court is in a 5 minute recess"
Cmdr_K_Ramsey: " we Gentlemen..."
Capt_Sloane leans over to Luke and whispers ... "I always said you talked too much ..."
Cmdr_K_Ramsey: " is there anything I can get you?"
Cmdr_Wildstar grins at sloane

LtCmdr_Cole: "What the hell? The Raven? Merrick? Didn't that ldbastard die or something???"
Lt_O`Shay: "apparently not, but I didn't think you could issue orders after you were retired"
Lt_O`Shay: "And damnit, someday I'm going to make that man get my name right"
LtCmdr_Cole: "This doesn't make sense....."
