USS Eagle, NCC 2185
Captain Kematsopoulous and Ambassador Releth
Title: More Questions Than Answers: Countdown to Armageddon
Location: The USS Eagle
Captain Kematsopoulos checked the time and
left Sickbay. He went to his quarters to clean up from his ordeal on the
He was amazed at how much a quick shower,
shave and a fresh uniform could make one feel so much better. Unfortunately,
it could do nothing for his lack of human appearance. He checked his human
disguise again in the mirror. Nouri hoped it would be enough to help with
meeting with the Turethian ambassador. No matter what Ambassador Releth said,
Nouri knew he could not go into negotiations looking like the race he had
mutated into - the race that the Tureth hated.
He headed out his door and down the passageway.
There was one hour left by his estimates to get the situation on the Tureth
side under control. That is cooler until the Galadons came and rekindled
the furnace of deep seated racial hatred again.
The Captain took a deep breath
and hit the announcer switch on the intercom.
"Enter," the former head of the Turethian
Space Navy said. He had spent most of his life fighting the Galadons in one
way or another. He had long since lost count of how many Galadons he had
killed or sent to their deaths.
Nouri paused for a brief second
and opened the door to Ambassador Releth of Tureth's Quarters. They had been
good friends up until he mutated from a Human to a Galadon. It was then that
the Eagle's CMO discovered that the warring races had incompatible biologies
and developed the pheromone dampening shots. But it would take more than
overcoming their biologic incompatibility for the two races to make peace.
The Tureth and Galadons had been hating and killing each other now for more
centuries that the United Federation of Planets had existed. "How am I going
to pull this off?" Nouri wondered.
Captain Kematsopoulos entered and sighed with
relief. He did not feel agitated or irrationally angry. The shots on the
Galadonese side of the equation worked! He knew that solving the biological
problems inherent with getting the two races in a room and to behave in civilized
fashion was the first critical step towards peace. Nouri hoped they worked
on the Turethian side.
The Captain greeted the Ambassador with all
the aplomb and cultural dignity that the Tureth would have afforded him.
Then he asked, "How are you feeling?"
The Ambassador was an astute man and knew
that his old friend was not asking him how he felt out of polite human custom,
but wanted to know if his pheromone dampening injection worked.
"Fine," he grinned. "Just fine."
Nouri smiled and relaxed a bit, "It's working
for me as well."
"Another hurdle out of the way and on to the
next!" Nouri thought. Then he spoke with Releth on the situation and tried
to be as persuasive as possible. He wanted the former Turethian admiral to
talk to his people and do everything to keep an all out battle from happening
and to keep the two races talking.
