Tucker: Is an anomaly, Lieutenant, not a Military threat.

Science: What about the Subspace Wake?

Tucker: Same deal.

Colms: Sir, it could be a sign of a trans-dimensional incursion.

Tucker: It could also be a sign of tiny elves messing with our instruments, for all we know.

Besides, Starfleet's mandate, remember? No one has ever seen anything like this before.

Colms: Aye sir.

Helm: Captain, we're approaching the event epicentre now.

Tucker: Drop to impulse power.

Helm: Captain, we're approaching the event epicentre now.

Tucker: Drop to impulse pow...

Manheim effect.

Colms: Seems like.

Tucker: Lieutenant--

Science: I know, I'll try to speed up the Temporal Shields.

Sir, there's a vessel right at the centre of the event.

Tucker: On screen.

*The Thresher appears on the Viewer.*


Science: Checking records.

The computer's asking for complete log access. Temporal Prime Directive Override.

*Tucker and Colms look at each other puzzled, before Tucker looks back to the Science Officer.*


Computer, full log Authorisation granted, Tucker 9-5-0-Alpha-1-2.

Science: Records found a match...

The ship resembles a vessel recovered a century ago; the U.T.S. Wells, a Wells-Class Temporal Ship.

Colms: Temporal Ship?

Science: Apparently from the 29th Century. In that time, Starfleet's duty is also to protect the time stream.

That's all the information the Computer released. The rest is Omega 12 locked.

Tucker: Hail them.

Unidentified Vessel, this is the United Star Ship Dresden, representing the United Federation of Planets. Please identify yourselves.
*Kormek nods to the chief engineer, who begins working, and Harris activates the viewscreen*

Kormek: This is the NCV Thresher of the United Federation of Planets, Captain Kormek speaking. I bet you're wondering why we're here.

*Through the comm link, the Thresher and Dresden's sensor arrays are linked*

We are searching for a particular Starfleet Admiral, perhaps you might be familiar with him?

*In engineering*

Engineer 1: There. An ever so slight distortion.

Engineer 2: Let's see it on this console.

*The console displays an almost nonexistent visual distortion*

(Bridge) Kormek: His name is Voporak, and he has violated the Temporal Prime Directive more times than anyone cares to count.

(Engineering) Engineer 2: Computer, draw a silhouette around that.

*A few seconds later, the computer makes clearly visible the outline of a Sao Paulo class escort, coming about from the starboard bow of the Thresher.

(Bridge) Kormek: You may also have noticed your sensor usage just went up. All I can say is, thank you for your assistance.

*The Thresher launches a burst of charge particles from the main deflector, causing the Phantom's cloaking device to deactivate*

(On the Phantom's bridge): We are no longer cloaked!

*The Thresher activates a series of tractor beams and gravatic pulses at the Phantom, but they have no effect. Still on the visual communication with the Dresden, Kormek does his best to look unconcerned that a 29th century vessel failed to capture a much older one*

(Thresher bridge) Kormek: On that note, would you please assist us in disabling this criminal's ship?

(Phantom bridge) Voporak: Bring Zeta-Omega weapons online.
I am the STO Lorax. I picked myself up and left, until the day the fun is replanted.
