Open Space, U.S.S. Cassini
December 27, 2268
Captain Trent Weller sat behind his desk and studied the crewman standing at attention before him. She was the only Orion in the ship’s complement; and despite what the men on the Cassini might prefer, she was not wearing the popular miniskirt, nylons and calf-high boots version of the female Starfleet uniform. Instead she wore black slacks and low boots in addition to her red tunic with black collar. Her long black hair was twisted into a simple knot at the base of her skull. She wore no makeup apart from a bit of eyeshadow, and didn’t need any.
Standing to the right of the young Orion was Commander Darrin Yates, the Cassini’s first officer; on her left was Lt. Commander Carl Billingsley, the ship’s chief medical officer. Both men wore very grave expressions.
“At ease, crewman,” said Captain Weller. “What’s this all about?”

I'm in my room, it's cold and dark
I'm thinking about what's in my heart
A sound comes from a corner, my mind races
'' Anyone there? '' I ask quietly and hide behind the covers
I turn on the lights, I see something in the corner
Getting up from bed, I move towards it slowly
It turns its head, I gasp and try to scream
No sounds comes, as the creature slowly moves towards me
I try to run, but I fall, I try to crawl, but it stops me
The creature has a mask and black robes, it has no feet and levitates
It comes close to my ear, whispering in a dark cold voice
'' Do you remember me sweetheart? ''
The scream in my throat can't come out, its stuck
The creature looks me in the eyes and I can see the blood shut eyes
'' You must learn how to hate '' The voice is angry and restrained
I try to get away, but its iron grip holds me down.
'' You will thank me for retuning one day boy. ''
The creature jumps and goes into my body, then I calm myself down
I run to the bathroom, sweating and with tears i

Captain’s log, Stardate 55655.6
”It took the return of an old friend to right the Expedition. The fact is the new Warp core design is a step backwards that most Starfleet Engineers would find hard to understand. With all the crew aboard, I called a Mission Briefing in the Briefing room with the Bridge staff. Only my First Officer and I know about our mission, and it's my hope that this ends well.”
Vanessa sits at the head of the table with a chosen seat arrangement of her choice. To Her Left is the ship’s Chief Medical Officer Lieutenant Commander Maxwell Gunn. He seemed to be the most experienced at the table. He had a strong chiseled look to him compared to the others at the table, and appeared to be the oldest of all at the table. To his left is the Operations Officer Lieutenant Juliet James who appeared human but is half Betazoid.

When James wakes up in the middle of the night, he finds John's eyes lazily wandering over him. He notices him, and James is barely conscious of the smile that they share, almost invisible in the dark. A hand slides through the blankets and reaches his thigh, a careful, brief, subtle touch.
'Nightmare again?' James asks softly, sleepy voice.
Short answer, but that's the only thing he needs. James nods, fingers reaching the hand on his thigh and wrapping around it, a reassuring touch. A you're not alone touch. John sighs, without adding anything, and James wishes he could reach him. Help him.
It's not love. They're friends, good friends. They've fought together, saved each other's life countless times now. The sex started as a fun way to release stress and, up to this day, both agree that's the way they want to keep it. Less complicated. Their relationship is great as it is. They satisfy each other's needs, and it actually helps. To stay focused, to not think too

It had been one year since the fight against Pitch and the guardians had left Jamie and his friends to go continue their preparations for Christmas, Easter, to gather teeth, to make good dreams and now, to help keep winter around the world balanced.
Jack's new job was okay. It wasn't the same, it had more restrictions and he had more responsibilities. He wasn't able to stay at his pond, his "frosty birthplace" yearlong anymore.
But now was the time of year where he could go home, see Jamie and when he would have to bring winter with him.

"Jack. Jack! Hello? Earth to Jack!" Called North to a distracted Jack Frost who was lounging on the window seat in North's workroom, looking out the window at the blue sky and white snow.
"JACK!" Yelled North.
"Huh?" Mumbled Jack, startled, dropping his staff on the floor.
Two Yeti's rushed into the room. They had heard North yell Jack's name and had rushed in to see if anything was wrong.

History of the Tzenkethi WarThe history of the Tzenkethi WarHistory of the Tzenkethi War5 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Some historians consider the Tzenkethi War the Federation's military showoff for the emerging superpower of the Cardassian Union. Others say this small war which ended with a total Federation victory and the humiliation of the proud Tzenkethi race that knew no defeat for uncounted centuries was the continuation of an ages-old conflict within the Federation itself. Thus, it was a proxy war, fought between those who stood for the ideas of the Federation's regime and those who opposed it.
The conflict, they say, began in 2273 AD, when the third starship to bear the name "USS Polaris" (NCC-2782) was dispatched to investigate the war the Tzenkethi fought for the conquest of the Kzinti Patriarchy. Unknown to most of the Federation military, the UE First Fleet starship was tasked with a secret agenda by Leningrad Command: the crew was to help one side to win the war, and whom to support was their choice. The rest is history the crew chose the unknown Tz

"BERTER!!" Unknown cried out, and turned to run. "GRAB HER!" Berter yelled, and from some trees, a large pair of metallic arms reached out, trying to grab Unknown.
A green flash shot from several nearby trees, and a sword which seemed to be made of a leaf slammed into one arm. "What is THIS!?" Berter growled, and Mina leapt from the same trees, grabbing her sword, "GAH! Not that stupid weed woman again!!"
"We're not weeds! We're DRYADS!!" Another voice said, and Ella stretched her arms around the other robo arm, pulling it away from Unknown. "MOM!!" Unknown yelled.

Taressa asked as she sat the spray bottle on the table in the living room. "Yea, so there's no telling what could happen." Vanessa replied, "Let's go get outta these wet uniforms, the rain soaked em!" The nurses both headed to their rooms to change.
"This sounds like fun!" Lena grinned as she headed into the living room, picking up the bottle. She started sneaking down the hallway and heading into Taressa's room.

F-58 Hammer SpecificationsF-58 Hammer Specifications4 years ago in Profiles More Like This
The F-58A Hammer is an 6th+ generation ultra-long range, hypersonic heavy fighter designed for air dominance and rapid strike missions. Its design is based off of the proven F-33A Rapier II hypersonic multirole fighter, and thus shares much of its technology. In addition to the proven technology inherited from its predecessor, the aircraft also brings new technologies to the fighter world. The most notable of these technologies include SynVision, which is a form of synthetic vision designed for this, and other higher performance aircraft. It allows unparalleled situational awareness when compared to convention cockpit designs along with reducing RCS and aerodynamic drag. In addition to SynVision, F-58 also uses a more advanced variant of EO-DAS designed just for this aircraft.
Other advanced technologies include DAESA (Distributed Actively Electronically scanned Array), which places multiple AESA panels in various places around the aircraft to provide 360˚ ra

The vids of that day.
Watches the lightning crackle through the Reaper’s metal frames.
Watches them stiffen, shift.
Watches as they move.
Crashing to the ground.
into a veil of dust
as they hit the ground.
It’s a miracle.
The cries of realization,
the light in the eyes of the soldiers.
The unbelieving grins,
the whoops as they send the remaining husks into oblivion.
It’s a miracle,
one of them says,
young and clean-shaven and happy,
with blood smeared on his armor
and his forehead glistening with sweat.
The vid skips to the parade they’d scrambled together,
hasty and under-prepared,
but big all the same.
Teenagers making out.
hell, we’ve earned a little shore leave.
And there was one face on every billboard,
one name on everyone’s lips,
one man in everyone’s thoughts.

Kiyoko sighed. She knew it would happen. As it happened every year. Every time when Juro received the invitation for Piroro's bondage party, Kiyoko knew that her husband would want to show off his mastery of kinbaku, the Japanese style of bondage. But Kiyoko hated it.
It was not that she didn't like bondage. In fact, she loved it. Of course she did. She wouldn't have been happily married to Juro for the last ten years if she wouldn't have liked being tied up once or twice a week. After all, Juro was a nawashi, a maker of rope. People paid money to see his skills as rope artist.
No, the problem with Piroro's party was different.
Take last year. Juro had Kiyoko wrapped up in an intricate hogtie, combined with an exquisite rope harness, a karada. It was just beautifully done. Her arms had been tied wrist to elbow, secured in the small of Kiyoko's arching back by the box tie. Her legs had been we

Unfortunately, this wasn't a metaphor or sarcastic quip about the youth of the crew. They actually were children (or babies, as in the case of one Pavel Chekov, now a sniffling bundle of blankets in his arms).
Chris's own reflection in one of the gleaming white interfaces of the starship had shown him with dark hair and many fewer wrinkles, but he was fairly certain (95.6% certain, Spock might say) that these effects would be reversed by the combined shouting, running and general trouble-making in which the de-aged Enterprise crew were currently engaged.
