Picard Replaced (Part Eight)

Editor's Note:

Captain Picard has been fired by the corrupt Admiral Nagamura, who is a Section 31 Agent. Many other senior staff have been ejected by the new Captain, Kate Pulaski, also an agent. Picard has sent Britney, T'Pol, Jennifer Baxter and Karena to break in to Starfleet Headquarters and get the Admiral so that he can be exposed. Things haven't gone to plan...

I wished we had known Admiral Nagamura was a kung fu expert!

In one brief flick, he kicked the multi-phase disruptor out of my hands and caught it. As a result, Nagamura is wearing a sly smile, and pointing the gun at us.

"I suppose Picard sent you to do the dirty work for him." he cackles, like a mad professor, "He does not understand the strength of Section 31. We are everywhere. Kate Pulaski will make the Enterprise the front runner for our organisation, doing all sorts of shady things throughout the galaxy. Destabilising governments, disposing of undesirables..."

"You're the biggest undesirable." T'Pol comments sarcastically.

"That may be so." Nagamura sneers like a ham actor in a bad play, "But in a few moments, you four will be dust."



"Let's see what my umbrella says." Britney says as she lashes out. Before Nagamura can use the disruptor, her weapon lashes into the Admiral and sends him flying into the air. I grab my gun. T'Pol and Karena pin him down.

"Good move, sweetie!" T'Pol says to Britney, "That packs a tidy punch."

"Thanks sistah." Brit replies, "Let's get him to McGalaxy's so that he can confess."

Nagamura laughs hysterically. If he ever wanted to be an actor, I can see why he was turned down.

"What proof do you have?" he sneers, "Starfleet will never believe what you say. Everything I said was not recorded. you will be arrested and sent to a penal colony."



Karena smiles, and presses a button on her spear. A sound comes out of it.

"......He does not understand the strength of Section 31. We are everywhere. Kate Pulaski will make the Enterprise the front runner for our organisation, doing all sorts of shady things throughout the galaxy. Destabilising governments, disposing of undesirables..."

"Modern technology on my home planet is wonderful." she smiles.

Some hours later, we have taken him to Captain Picard, and all of us have gone to the Starfleet President.

"I can see the corruptness, Captain." he says, "Naturally you are all re-instated. We will arrest Kate Pulaski immediately."

"If you don't mind, Mr President." says Picard slyly, "Keep the arrest of Nagamura quiet for the moment. I'd like to have a little fun at Pulaski's expense."

Beverly Crusher looks very happy at hearing this.

To be continued...

Bravo, Karena!

Nagamura gets the point of your spear without your having to get it all bloody and covered with intestines. (And the mind positively reels -- and recoils -- at what the Amazons must listen to after an actual battle.)

But, now, what is our brave Captain planning to do to Dr. Pulaski? I believe she was sweet on him once -- which may account for why she went to Section 31 in the first place: a woman scorned and all. Now... won't Bev and the Captain be piling on?

Don't let your famous reserve and sensitivity desert you now, Jean-Luc!

Karena...Jennifer Baxter....I'm distracted!!!!! But if Bev's happy, things are taking a turn for the best! :D)

Hmm Wow I guess keeping Ensign Britney around is useful after all. I always did think never underestimate Karena or anyone from planet wonderwoman unless you want to see up close how sharp that spear really is.

Picard acting sly? Wow!
