When Calypso entered the Neutral Zone, Cera had literately sagged in her command chair from the sense of relief she felt. They had made it. They were officially out of Romulan space. The Romulans hadn’t been able to stop them in any case, but it was still good to be clear of them. Then her sense of relief was replaced by joy when Calypso zoomed out of the Neutral Zone into Federation territory. She was home again!
Less than a week ago Cera had still been looking at a twenty-year voyage to return home. But thanks to the wormhole, she and her crew were now on their final approach to Starbase 23. Everyone was once more on the bridge, including Garadun and Nessa who had put their brief spat behind them with apologies and a quick hug. Cera glanced over at T’Prin, who was monitoring communications. As soon as the ship emerged from the Neutral Zone, the space station had started hailing them at regular intervals, send

Romulan Space, S.S. Calypso
April 19, 2270
The thing about a big scary enemy, Garadun had noted in his own unique way, is that once his pants are down around his ankles, he’s not so big and scary anymore. From the time Cera had filled him in on the Romulans, he’d hadn’t been impressed. That hadn’t changed one bit in the days since. Long-range sensors had detected three Romulan ships converging on what Kona called the Unroth system, which happened to lie directly in Calypso’s path. Evidently they were trying to cut Calypso off.
Too bad for them their plan sucked.
To begin with, one of the Romulan vessels was too far away, even at warp eight, to get there in time. So they were only going to have two ships available instead of three. The two ships that made it to Unroth had immediately cloaked upon arrival. That might have been a problem if not for the fact that Calypso’s sensors could see

Romulan Space, Romulan Warbird Illustrious
April 17, 2270
When the new captain of the ChR Illustrious, a Bird of Prey class warbird, stepped onto the bridge, she was pleased to see that none of her subordinates appeared to give her any notice. Instead they focussed on their duties like proper officers of the Imperial Navy. The Illustrious’ previous captain had been a vainglorious, incompetent prig who insisted on endless protocol to flatter his vanity and fragile ego.
Commander Nariss was well aware of the role politics played in the Imperial Fleet. It was the reason why fools like the late Commander Raal were given command of a navy warship. In his case, his father was a member of the Romulan Senate. And while Nariss considered herself a loyal Romulan officer, that loyalty didn’t mean she had to put up with the status quo if it could be changed. Raal had, embarrassingly, been found dead in one of the more upscale brothels

Open Space, S.S. Calypso
April 16, 2270
Everyone had gathered on the bridge before Calypso arrived at the coordinates, and were sitting at their normal stations. In the lead position on the port side was communications, where T’Prin sat. Behind her was David “Kona” Kalakona at navigation. Beside him at environmental was Sajeen. Cera was in her captain’s chair, located in the slightly sunken command deck. In front of her was the helm station where Garadun was flying the ship. Jan Koor sat at engineering, which was in the foremost position on the starboard side. To his left was Nessa at tactical. Next to her was the multipurpose station that could be reconfigured to meet any need. It’d been serving as the science station of late. Magik sat atop the helm station, as was her habit. The small black cat was just as excited as her shipmates, and she watched the main viewscreen with great interest.
Unlike the wormhole that had
