Title: What's Behind Door Number Two?, Part Eleven
Joint Logs by Myth and Nouri
Location: The USS Eagle
Setting: The Captain's Quarters
In the CO's bedroom at the precise coordinates they had beamed out earlier,
the two intruders returned.
Leah was almost glad. At least dealing with enemies would keep her from acting
on the impulse to clobber the ensign.
" Uh oh.. Quick get out there and stall so I can come up with something,"
Hanson said. ~If she weren't here, I'd have figured out something by now.
She is so distracting,~ he thought.
"And get shot? There's better cover from here, anyways." Leah disagreed with
him out of habit. His chatter was keeping her from recalling the exact layout
of the rooms and where she might be able to take cover and shoot things from.
She checked her phaser, adjusting it to heavy stun and wide beam-the better
for taking down multiple targets at once.
"You could hide under the Captain's bed..: Hanson volunteers. "Get out, it's
the only chance for the rest of us ... you are security you know...((the
red shirt and all that...))" he continues.
"The bed? You're nuts-and don't take too long!" Leah left, having recalled
that the COs bedroom closet should provide some protection. Certainly better
than getting pinned down under a bed. The best benefit, of course, was that
Hanson wouldn't be there to be annoying. Once she'd left the plant room and
its obnoxious occupant, she wasted no time in hiding amidst spare uniforms
in the closet.
~If only she left sooner!!! The four of us here would have had a chance,~
Hanson laments. He takes another look around and gets to work.
Meanwhile, the Narhat jumps up and down more frantically to get Hanson's
attention. This bot is holding the answers to most of the secrets but no
one is paying much attention to it.
As the beam in ended, the lights went out suddenly.
A deep unearthly voice boomed out of the darkness. "Lights, what did
you do to the lights?" the first intruder demanded.
Leah ducked down, keeping herself behind the half open closet door as possible.
With the lights gone she figured there was a good chance they wouldn't see
her until she opened fire.
A less deep and muffled voice replied, "I didn't do anything. I just altered
the air. It should be fine to breathe now ... and it's been long enough to
kill anyone, even the Moeban. No one has gotten in since I re-secured the
doors. I checked the logs, " the second intruder said.
It was too dark to see much yet, so Leah concentrated on listening.
"Cover me and I'll check the two in here..." the deeper voice said.
"Go ahead," replied the higher voice exasperated. This person knew that they
were supposed to be in charge but feared the abilities of the other. Having
seen what he did to the CMO and the Yeoman had made them even more scared.
The other intruder moved towards bed and the chair that he had moved Tsundra
back to after interrogating her back when they set up the scene to make it
look like she tried to kill the Captain. He bumped into the chair and found
it empty. He uttered a sound that may have been a curse in some unearthly
tongue and then he felt around on floor. He did not find her. He checked
bed for the Captain and found no one there either."They are not where we
left them!" he bellowed.
"What?" the other voice replied, shocked.~How could anything go wrong?? We
set this up perfectly,~ this intruder thought.
"Gone...Checking other side of bed..." he replied tersely.
Leah waited. She figured it might give Hanson more time to do whatever he
had in mind-assuming he was actually at work on something. But she couldn't
let these two leave the room-she'd be unable to protect the others then.
"That's impossible. They were in no condition to move on their own and the
gas I channeled into the quarters would have gotten them and the CMO... Maybe
it fits with the message I got, something about.." the other voice started
to say recalling the message. ~Go back and clean the room. Two unknowns
entered the equation and spoiled the results. Recall Sydow. Interrogate heavily
and kill. Leave no survivors. Do not leave until you confirm deaths,~
the second intruder remembered.
"Are we too late? Did whoever the two new people are take them...the CMO??
But no one opened the doors. I'll check on CMO, maybe somehow she moved them
before she died from the gas. Ow," the person yelped, tripping over
The smaller intruder that tripped moved closer to where Richards
would be able to see them if the room was lit. Alas she could not see
even their outline. All that could be seen by the young security officer
were a few transient flashes of metal on the being reflecting off some unknown
Leah had to chance it. If she didn't try she'd just be leaving them in Hanson's
care-and she didn't see him as being much protection. So she fired, shifting
to the other side of the closet at the same time hoping that any retaliating
shots would thus miss.
Thud! The second intruder is shot and hits the deck.
Whoosh! The other much larger intruder quickly changed his location
and got into position to attack the location from where the fire came.
Leah strained to see the remaining target. ~Stupid lights!~ What had been
nice cover was now a hindrance.

Momentarily, the light of many shimmery particles filled the room as the
first intruder was beamed out of the quarters.
~Shoot!~ At least it meant the other guy was on his own without the hope
that his friend might wake up and join in the fight.
The first intruder used the beam out to help him take aim and fire. Even
with his abilities dampened by the loss of light, he was good at his work.
The shot rang out and hit the security officer.
Leah had never been shot before and she didn't care for the experience now.
~Ow... crud. Hanson's gonna love this.~ Then she collapsed.
