The Klingon Homeworld (Part Two)
Guest Poster: Worf
As Captain Picard and I beamed down to the area where the faction was likely to be, I had worries.
The Captain was wearing a cloak that covered his face; it seemed to me that he was too scared to be surgically altered to a Klingon, so just had the Theatrical Department treat him. If he was seen, people would think that he was suffering from Cheapmakeuponitis, the disease that ravaged the Klingons nearly a century ago.
Naturally, we never talk about it.
The two of us had gone down to infiltrate a rebel faction of Klingons who want to wreck the treaty between the Klingon Empire and the Federation. The ringleader was a troublemaker called Morbus.
It was dark, and I could tell we were in the right area. There were many gruff people eyeing us suspiciously, and looked as if they felt like hitting us just for the fun of it.
Naturally, it was not wise to ask them if they knew where Morbus was, as they would happily slit our throats first. This I was not prepared to do. Although the Captain would never admit it, he was out of his depth here, and I had to protect him.
"What can we do to find the way, Mr Worf?" the Captain whispered a little too loudly.
"You must be careful, Sir." I advised, "Should these people find out our true identities, our lives would come to a swift end. I suggest we use false names."
"Very good" the Captain agreed, "There are two known troublemakers currently in a Klingon offworld prison. As they haven't reached this planet, they won't know what they look like. You be Zartec, and I'll be Talan. The latter has a bad scar. I'll tell them I want to keep it hidden."
I roll my eyes. Why didn't the Captain just agree to be surgically altered?
"Very well....Talan." I tell him.
We suddenly see a group of Klingons quietly converge on a building.
"That might be it." says the Captain.
"Indeed." I reply, "They are acting in a very furtive and suspicious manner. We must remember to do the same."
We approach the building; the Captain, unfortunately looks far too furtive, and draws attention to us.
"What is your friend doing?" says one Klingon to me who is going in the building.
"Err....it's his first meeting." I tell them, "He is very nervous."
He incredibly seem to accept this, and goes in; we follow.
The doorman asks for our names.
"Zartec and Talan." I tell them, "We have just escaped from Klingon prison."
The doorman eyes us suspiciously, whispers to a friend and tells us we can enter.
In the room there is a large gathering of Klingons. We recognise some known agitators and also some supposedly peaceful ones. It's those we need to inform the High Council and the Federation about.
Two Klingons are in a position of authority with Morbus; he stands up and introduces them.
"Fellow agitators." he begins, "I want to introduce two heroes to the Cause, they are Zartec and Talan. They escaped from Klingon prison."
That is unfortunate. Why didn't we pick two other names?
"Two here have tried to get in and impersonate them; they are over there."
He points in our direction and we are seized.
