Teaser for Friday, December 8, 2000 -- "Forgone Conclusion", Part One
- Poe Dalin, Personal log, stardate 53897.2.
We're en route to Earth, escorted by the USS Hunter,
commanded by Captain Jason Aldur. Jason Aldur ... he doesn't
know who I am, but I know his name and history all too well.
Captain Wallace has been relieved of command pursuant to
Judge Advocate General Admiral Haslam's orders, delivered by
Captain Aldur's first officer, Tala Brianne. She sits on the
bridge even now, her cold, Betazoid exterior not fooling
anyone that she may be, perhaps is, probing peoples' thoughts
as she sits in the first officer's seat. She's trying to
gauge the crew's reactions to this situation. I can only
imagine the counselor is quite unhappy with it. Temjuin
didn't seem to stand in anyone's way, not even when Wallace
was beamed to Hunter's brig. K'Lar growled and was relieved
by Commander Brianne. I'm surprised Mara didn't break a
couple of bones before she left.
Technically, I've been allowed to remain in command of
Pegasus, but Pegasus isn't my ship. It never was. I was put
here for one reason and one reason only. Besides, Admiral
Ross knows I'll guide Pegasus towards Earth like the good
little plant that I am. Even if I cared not to, I'm sure
Captain Aldur has no qualms about commandeering this ship for
the second time in his career.
So I sit here, ::sigh:: knowing that the true reason for my
assignment to the USS Pegasus, my only purpose in Starfleet
for the past 9 months, is officially about to come to
fruition. And I realize ... I have no idea what will happen
to me once it's done.
But it's not done yet. Captain Wallace is to be
court-martialed on stardate 53909. Until its end, I still
have lines left to read from this script, the admiral's
script. Admiral Ross' and Section 31's final revenge on Dev
