Location: The Captain's Quarters
"Unkh," the man groaned.
"Who's there?" he asked, waking up again.
"Nouna Naomi ," the yeoman replied.
"When am I?" the younger man asked in Chinese, switching languages again.
"2293. You are on a Federation starship called the USS Eagle. It is an Oberth
class vessel. Everyone here thinks you are the Captain, but you are not,"
she said with practiced haste as she had told him several times before.
He rambled some more, "Where's the Captain?"
"Yours or mine?'" she asked not sure who he meant.
He did not answer. The man had no idea what was going on.
Naomi answered for him, "Your Captain - I do not know or if you even had
one. My Captain - I do not know where mine went. I need you to help me find
him. You need to get well to do that."
He didn't catch most of what she said. Just that he needed to get well to
help her with something. He began to drift off wondering what that meant.
"Do you remember what we were going to do?" she asked trying to make sure
he knew what was going on each time he regained consciousness. He seemed
to be forgetting each conversation and talking to him each time was like
it never happened before.
He paused for a moment trying to concentrate. Then he was surprisingly lucid.
"Yes, something dangerous," he replied.
"Yes, very dangerous. It's a procedure from back in ancient times in your
family. It's used in situations like this. It could work and restore you.
I need to begin it now before we are attacked again," she said.
"They want ar-" he started to say.
"No!" she cut him off. "Do not tell me. I do not want to know. Do not give
me any information," she said almost wishing he'd go unconscious again. She
didn't want to jeopardize any universes, multiverses or time lines, especially
her own. She wasn't sure exactly what she was dealing with. She did know
that the man in front of her was not the Captain Kematsopoulos she had known
and that he was much younger than her Captain even though outwardly he looked
the same except for one detail.
"Whatever was wanted in where you come from may or may not be wanted here,"
she explained. "I don't want to know enough about either of our places to
harm either of them."
"Gone for good," he said to make up for his earlier near slip.
"Good," she said having no idea what he was talking about and liking it that
Just then the intercom beeped. +CENG here to see the CO,+ CDR Valentina Ivanova
Tereshokvna Tsiolkovsky announced carefully, leaving all trace of emotion
out of her voice.
Yeoman Tsundra ignored it and returned her attention the man. "Here. Drink
this," she said.
"Will it taste bad?" he asked.
"Of course will, " she replied motherly wondering why he asked such an obvious
"PauPau's?" he asked.
"Yes. Of course," she said.
"Figures," he said wondering why he asked such an obvious question. His grandmother's
herbal remedies always tasted bad.
Naomi scooped up the feverish man into a sitting position with one small
and petite but strong arm. She moved him gently up to take a sip. Nouri
grimaced at the bitter alkaloid taste. She grimaced at his near dead weight
and the amount of heat he was giving off. If she was going to have any chance
with this procedure from his grandmother he was going to give in to the sedative.
"Sleep now," she ordered, gently laying him down.
Meanwhile the ever impatient Chief Engineer was getting more so by the second.
She was told the Captain was definitely sent to his quarters to die and that
Yeoman Tsundra was enacting his living will. It didn't take a Vulcan to do
the logic that he was certainly there and the Yeoman was there with him.
Something was definitely odd to anyone close to the CO besides this last
second will changing.
The CENG checked the time. It was more than enough time to respond and made
her even more worried. Val tried something she learned from the Captain to
do in situations like this when nothing was all you had. She knew trying
to override the controls wouldn't win her any favors with the woman who got
herself made Executrix and had the legal rights to exclude visitors if she
wanted to do so. What Val didn't know was that her override had been overridden.
She would not have gotten into the quarters easily had she forced the issue.
+CENG, here. Sorry to bother you both, but there is some equipment I need
in there among his gifts and borrowed items that may have been contaminated
with the parasites,+ she said.
Yeoman Tsundra hesitated. She did not want to let Val in, but was reluctant
to state so and didn't want to alert the CENG that she had passcodes that
overrode hers. She knew it was only matter of time for the smart, young CENG
to figure out how to bypass them so she decided to let her in for a quick
visit. It was best to save this secret for later, if possible and not alert
anyone to it. Tsundra checked her tiny hidden phaser and changed the setting
from off to stun. She wasn't going to take any chances or let anyone stop
+Yeoman Tsundra here, + she said professionally and neutrally. +What
do you need?+
+I need to speak with the Captain and take the equipment,+ the CENG replied.
+Very well,+ Yeoman Tsundra said. +He is conscious now. I'll come over and
let you in,+ she said.
If the CENG were not so upset over the Captain's condition, she would have
blown up at the Yeoman.
The Yeoman, checked in on the man first before going to the door. She whispered
conspiratorially, "Nouri, I need you to pretend to be the Captain. The Captain
of the USS Eagle. The CENG is here. She needs to talk with you. Don't answer
and act asleep if you don't know what to say or ramble on deliberately about
something unrelated. Her name is Valentina Tsiolkovsky. I believe you know
The man was confused. So much didn't make sense to him since he arrived.
He just mumbled, "I'll try." Naomi gave him a reassuring pat and went to
CDR Tsiolkovsky entered. "Thank you," she said looking visibly shaken. "I
heard that he is worse and came back here to d..." she stopped midsentence
and looked like she would start to cry again.
The Yeoman smiled bleakly. "Yes, that is correct. You are fortunate he is
conscious now. I don't know for how long. You may go see him."
Val thanked her and watched the Yeoman oddly. ~There's a lot going on here
not said,~ she thought.
The two women entered the bedroom part of the Captain's quarters.
"Who's there?" Nouri asked weakly.
"Nouna? Are you back?" he asked.
"Yes and Valentina has come to see you and then maybe take some equipment,"
she replied now having figured it out it was likely that a ruse.
"Good," he smiled and became more drowsy.
~Perhaps the tea is finally working?~ Naomi thought.
"Nouna? You're his Crrres-sna??" the CENG stammered in disbelief.
"Yes," Yeoman Tsundra replied.
"That explains a lot then," Valentina said not telling her about the
other thoughts she was entertaining about her which were certainly not very
"Yes, it does. Now, make your peace and go. I will take care of him. You
must believe that now. You don't have much time," she said both motherly
Val went in and talked to the man she thought was the CO.
Yeoman Tsundra went out to receive the page for the CENG she just heard over
the intercom. There was no sense of taking the call in the Captain's bedroom.
She was going to buy the CENG some time, but not too much. She did want her
gone as quickly as possible.
