S1 E2 p5 here: http://www.debate.org...

Now, I'm going to put this at the top for the purpose of visualization. For anyone new to this here is the Enforcer: http://uss-andromeda.technomicron.com...

Now for everyone, this is going to be TUF's ship, the USS Presidential http://static.comicvine.com...

Now, let the story begin... in the next post.
The Troll Queen.

Go vote on one of my debates. I'm not that smart, so it'll probably be an easy decision.

It had been a couple of days since the Enforcer had gotten overloaded by spam from Jifpop. Classic was still in sick bay under the care of Comrade, but the rest of the crew seemed to be fine. Only Linkish had a visible injury, which was a scar that went along the side of his face. It wasn"t big, but it was noticeable.

"Sir, Admiral TUF is hailing us," Linkish said from behind him. Airmax turned to see Linkish look up at him as if silently asking what to do.

"Put it in my office," Airmax said simply as he walked to his office just off the bridge.

Airmax sat down and turned his screen so it was more comfortable. TUF"s face appeared on the screen, but he wasn"t in an office. Not an admiral"s office. He was in a starship. It was an excelsior class starship, the kind usually used to transport admirals.

"Good to see you, Admiral," Airmax said respectfully.

"I wish I could say it was under good circumstances," TUF said with a sad look on his face. "Starfleet Headquarters just received a threat from the Herok."

"The Herok? They barely even come to our part of the quadrant. I forgot they even existed to be quite honest."

"Apparently they"re building an empire. I"m sending you some information regarding their fleet, but it"s pretty bad. Starfleet is calling anyone who"s available, including planets and empires that aren"t allied with us."

"Even the Romulans?"

"Look at the specs I sent you."

Airmax opened the file and looked at the first entry. It was entitled "The Fleet Eater." It looked like a big black pill on the first slide, but the second pictures showed a different view. The front half of it opened up to reveal a full set of weaponry. The ship was almost as big as earth"s moon, and without even looking at the armory information, Airmax could tell that there was enough weaponry in there to destroy starfleet without a problem.

Aside from the Fleet Eater, there was a full fleet complete with 100 battleships and a tens of thousands of heavy fighters. No wonder Starfleet was calling everyone. The last page had a list of guaranteed planets and empires showing up. The Klingons were sending two fleets of ships. The Cardassians were sending a fleet even with the Bajorans already in it.

"What are the chances of winning?" Airmax asked solemnly.

"I honestly couldn"t tell you. Statisticians are throwing numbers all over the place. To be honest, we don"t know the shielding capabilities of the Herok well enough to determine whether we can defeat them."

"Do you think we have the numbers? With enough people surely we can take them down."

"Numbers might not even matter. Everyone that"s been conquered and has been able to send out a status report has confirmed that they don"t believe they even dented the fleet. They took down about a hundred fighters each before their fleets were destroyed."

"How big were the fleets that challenged them?" Airmax could feel the blood draining from his face. He was always ready to die in the line of duty, but he would rather not die while losing all of starfleet to a rising empire.

"They were each about three fourths the size of starfleet. That"s why we have a little hope we can defeat them."

"Do you think our fleet will be as big as theirs?"

"That depends on how you define "bigger." They may only have 100 battlecruisers, but each one is at least the size of your ship. Most are bigger." TUF took a deep breath and looked at his personal pad then said, " I"ve sent coordinates to your helmsman. As soon as this call ends, get on that bridge, give the order, and meet us at the rendezvous point."

"Understood, sir," Airmax said trying to hold his composer. "I"ll see you there." The call ended, and he walked out onto the bridge. He looked at Mikal and asked, "Ensign, you"ve received the coordinates?"

"Sure did," Mikal said turning around in his seat. He looked rather relaxed. Everyone did. Maybe that was just because of how nervous he was.

He took a breath and said, "Engage."
