I may not be able to evolve, but I haven't been manipulated.
You think the Iconians are all evil? You think the universe is that simple? It only takes one man to change the world. Martin Luther King, Zefram Cochrane. Siraga isn't someone I know well, but he's not someone I don't trust simply by matter of race.
I'm standing against you. I'm not the only one. Everyone here is now against you. As is Sinclaire and-- *He's cut short by the sight of a Borg ship crashing nearby. Suddenly, two figures materialize alongside the away team. It's Soval and T'las.*
Soval: I've been monitoring the situation. Northman, I studied your record. Your actions are illogical. You are taking a chance of destroying the entire Universe on an attempt to tie the whole Galaxy around your thumb? I can't understand what changed. Your record showed a man of conviction, a man who believed in freedom. Where is the freedom in forcing these changes on the quadra-- *A bystander pulls out a phaser, aiming it at the Vulcan, before other bystanders stop him, resulting in him being shot by his own weapon, revealing his Iconian form.*
Q: It seems there is an asteroid heading this way. *Snaps fingers* Sorted. What? If the Universe breaks apart, the Continuum has as much to lose as the rest of you. Captain Allington, Admiral Allen's back if you wish to contact him.
Ryan: Good. He may be our only shot at stopping this before time falls apart. Admiral Allen, I owe you an apology. I didn't fear what you were becoming, I feared what you could become. War changes people, makes them do things they normally wouldn't consider. I didn't fear your evolution. That, by definition, is part of Starfleets mission: to seek out new life. We're going to need your help. I have a plan but I'll need your help to make it work. Sinclaire, the door's open. Can you come and pick us up?
*OOC: Now, Siraga/Merlin isn't an Iconian infiltrater. I intend for him to work out as more of a "Galen" character. Heck, if I had to pick an actor to play him, I'd definitely pick Peter Woodward. If you don't know who Galen his, go into Google and search "Babylon 5 Galen" or "Crusade Galen". You should be able to get a sense of who is character is from that. So, if you wouldn't mind, I'd appreciate it if you didn't make him look like a spy. He's really not. And Ryan's not being manipulated, nor has he lost his marbles. He's a cross between Picard from TNG and Sinclair and Sheridan from Babylon 5. In other words, he's being an idealist, soldier and diplomat.*
Allington the evolution is done, You cannot kill Northman. Northman is a being of nature sent to push the evolution through as it was intended when man and the other races went into space.
OOC: This situation is nature's way of pulling through even through the worst kind of meddling. I actually already have an endgame in mind and it is going to be something you might not expect. Northman is a character that understands nature's will and that of the universe itself. There is only one way for this to end. (its tragic but not in the sense your thinking.) Northman really isn't a madman but someone who is an ends justifies the means. And someone who has lost faith in a lot of things. He is nature's tool and he knows it.
*Allen arrives on Northman's vessel alone with a shuttle, He knows what he has to do. Northman is standing in front of the control panel on the bay of the asteroid. Soon Allen arrives.*
Northman: *laughs* I knew it would only be a matter of time before you showed back up Allen..
You know why I am here then.
Northman: I have won, why do you need to fight me.
To stop the mindless violence and the destruction. This is not why we were here.
Northman: The galaxy can't take anymore conflict, or those parasites.
I know that.. That is why we have to show them the light within every soul.
Northman: So faith and wisdom will stop all of our problems.
Poor soul you have lost faith in that light.
I have to stop you.
*The fight breaks out and its brutal to say the least. But it ends quickly with Allen pinning him to the console in the room, he brings up Northman's omega weapon.*
There is one thing Northman that I find sad about you. You could have been a great leader and someone that could have led the people. But now.. I pity you... Putting you down is the only thing I can think of but I know it won't make things better, it just shows how much we all have lost but it needs to be done.
*He aims the weapon at Northman and fires and it disintegrates Northman and he explodes in a burst of light.*
*He makes his way back to the shuttle he came here in.*
* After several minutes the shuttle comes back out and sticks itself right in front of the asteroid. In a seemingly futile attempt to push it back. But the light around everything is getting brighter and warmer.*
*The Asteroid begins to enter the atmosphere. More vessels then enter range and try as well.*
*The light gets brighter and warmer. There is comfort in it.*
