*T1 (that is 2409, where Voporak belongs), the NCV Thresher moves through deep space, seemingly at a dead end.*
Captain's log: After two weeks of pursuit, Voporak's trail has gone cold. We are scanning 24/7 for any of the slightest temporal disturbances, anything that could lead us to him. Today I am expecting a new strategy from the tactical department, as Lieutenant Commander Harris promised.
*In Kormek's ready room, the door chime rings.*
*LtC. Harris steps in*
Harris: Well Captain, I believe we have a way to find Voporak, or rather, not.
Harris: The plan the tactical department developed is essentially a trap to lure Voporak.
*Harris pulls up a space-time map on the wall console screen*
Harris: The Thresher will arrive in this other timeline, and we will release our sensor dampening field. This will make us visible not only to Voporak, but also to any ship within sensor range of us. Being a highly advanced ship, we will be safe. Previous studies of the patterns of Voporak's appearances show that he is drawn to commotion such as this will cause. Once he does show up, we have him.
*Kormek smiles* Kormek: A good old fashioned risk-it plan. We do not have any other choice either. Prepare to make it so.
Harris: Aye sir.
*The Thresher's temporal drive is configured for a trans-dimensional jump and multiple teams prepare to disable the Black Phantom when the time comes.*
Bridge Lieutenant: All decks report ready, sir.
Kormek: Good. Engage the trans-jump.
*The stars streak across the sky (from the Thresher's view) and the ship disappears. Moments later it reappears in T2 (this thread's timeline) without the sensor dampening field, sending an ugly sensor disturbance wave across the quadrant.*
*On the Black Phantom...*
Science officer: Captain, the Thresher just appeared.
Voporak: Bring up the full sensor logs, route it to Tactical.
*He walks next to Omet'etan, looking at the logs now on the screen*
Omet'etan: They foolishly did not account for everything. Their dampening field has gone down as they jumped. I suggest we strike at them now.
Voporak: I agree Commander. *he walks back to the Captain's chair* They couldn't have put themselves in a more vulnerable position as they are now, save lowering their shields. Set a course for the Thresher, maximum warp. Engage.
*Under cloak, the Phantom jumps to warp, minutes away from arriving at the Thresher.*
*U.S.S. Dresden, Denasi Sector, Federation-Romulan Border.*
Tucker: U.S.S. Dresden to Starfleet Command, checking in. Nothing new on the border--
Science Officer: Sir, I just picked up a massive Temporal Disruption! Off the scale!
Tucker: hold on that transmission Lieutenant.
Comm: Yes sir.
*Tucker walks over to Science Officer and looks at the holo-display of the massive Chroniton radioactive fallout.*
Science: Usually I'd say a Black Hole, but that pulls chroniton particles inside, not send them out.
Science: It's not localised enough. It's like someone set off a depth charge in the Space-Time Continuum! More than that, there's a colossal subspace wake in the centre!
Tucker: Have we seen anything like this before?
Tucker: So much for Border Patrol. Who's side is it on?
Tucker: Yellow Alert.
*The Yellow Alert Klaxon chimes*
Helm, set course for the centre of the Temporal Disturbance, Warp 5.
Helm: Yes sir.
Tucker: Is it safe to navigate through that radiation?
Science: I'll have to bring the Temporal Shielding online, and that'll take 2 hours. We'll reach the field in 1.
Tucker: The AT Shields?
Science: That would work.
*Tucker looks to the Ops Officer*
Ops: Yes sir.
*The Ops Officer places his hand an a panel made from the same material as the Omega Frame, and the panel begins glowing yellow slightly, as does the Ensign's hand.*
AT Shields up.
Helm: Course set.
*The Dresden warps towards the epicentre of the disturbance (the Thresher's position).*
OOC: Quick reminder; the Dresden is a Sovereign-Class vessel. Might give some interesting dialogue later on.
Here's a link to the post that details the ship:
