Prologue: Resistance
“Battleaxe Leader, this is Convoy Alpha-Delta-1238, requesting escort to Trion Prime, repeat, requesting escort to Trion Prime,” the comm. crackled, startling Commander Jake Janeway, the ship’s tactical and executive officer, from his meditation.
“Convoy-Alpha-Delta-1238, please clarify,” said Lt. Cmdr. Evan McKnight, the ship’s helm officer, as he rubbed his tired eyes.
“Battleaxe Leader, this is Captain Afyon of the USS Courageous-A, we’ve lost ¾ of our escort and are about to arrive in the Trion system, assistance is required,” replied Captain Afyon over the comm.
“Acknowledged, standby,” McKnight said into the comm., looking over at Fleet Captain Sovak for her decision. She looked over at Janeway, who just shrugged.
“You’re the captain, not me, ma’am,” Janeway replied, “But for the record, I don’t believe it’s a good idea, as the Borg have been hammering the convoys and the squad is not in the best condition; anything bigger than a Pyramid would crush us and the squadron.” Janeway reached out with his Betazoid empathic senses to see what the others thought about this decision, and all he could sense is apprehension and fear; there was also courage beginning to grow within them, emanating from Sovak, though she didn’t show it.
“Tell them we are on our way, order the fleet to Condition Red and to rendezvous at Point Alpha-2-3-7-Sierra,” Sovak said, brushing her hair out of the way.
“So ordered, launching defense drones and activating shields and ablative armo….” Janeway began before seeing two Remnant Pyramids decloak on his sensors. Janeway scrambled to find his balance as he felt the bridge crew’s terror when the ships appeared on screen. He quickly tried to lock on with phasers, but the set of pyramids were faster. The Pyramids launched a volley of torpedoes, almost three dozen per Pyramid, and they were targeted on the biggest threat to the Pyramids; which, unfortunately, was the Musashi. The defensive drones were quickly depleted of their micro torpedoes; the drones then defaulted to their backup programming, slamming into the incoming torpedoes. Though the drones managed to eliminate 2/3rds of the incoming, that still left twenty three incoming projectiles hurtling through space toward the Musashi. “Brace for impact!!!” shouted Janeway as he activated the ships comm. and attempted to reinforce the forward shields before impact. He failed. The first fifteen or so smashed into the powerful shields of the Musashi, then as the shields failed, the remainder plowed into the hull. Janeway and the rest of the bridge crew were thrown from their stations and Janeway blacked out.
When Jake awoke, he saw a bridge in chaos. Consoles sparked, the railing around the bridge was crushed, with several jagged pieces jutting out. Several crew members were struggling to get up and as he looked around, he saw Sovak impaled on one of the jagged pieces of railing. “Oh, shit!” shouted Janeway and tapped his comm. badge, “MEDICAL EMERGENCY ON THE BRIDGE!!!” There was no response so Jake ran for the emergency medical kit at the back of the bridge, ignoring the emergency medical tips that were coming through his comm. badge, actually ripping it off and smashing it with his boot.
“What are you doing, sir?!” said McKnight, who ran over, all but ready to grab Janeway and stop him. “What the hell are you doing?!”
“Backoff, McKnight, I’m a combat medic!!!” said Janeway as he pushed the junior officer away and began using the medical tricorder to determine the extent of the damage. Damage to the liver and spleen, but no arteries hit, that’s good. Her pulse and heart rate are worry-some though, Janeway thought. “All right, we can move her.”
“Are you out of your Betazoid mind? She’s got a piece of metal sticking through her guts!!!” McKnight shouted and he was about to continue but Janeway stood up to his full height, a good four inches taller than McKnight and just stared at him, smoldering. “Yes, sir,” McKnight said meekly and began to help Janeway pick her up off the rod impaling her. Sovak groaned in pain, but blessedly remained unconscious. Suddenly, the tricorder’s alarm went off.
“Damn it, she’s starting to arrest! Put her down, put her down!” Janeway shouted as they gently lowered her to the ground, and Janeway reached for the rest of the kit and came up empty. Looking over, he saw the kit being used by Patterson and Clancy to help the crewmen who were down, one bleeding from almost every opening on his face and the other who had seemed to be having a seizure. “All right, McKnight, I got a job for you to do, you have five minutes to get down to Medical on B deck and bring back a EMedkit, before she goes into full arrest, understood?” McKnight just nodded and ran for the Jefferies tube as Janeway began compressions, keeping Sovak’s heart going.

Re: Star Trek: Fighter Command

Janeway kept up compressions until, less than two minutes later, McKnight came back with the EMedkit. McKnight quickly tossed it to Janeway, who quickly pulled out the defribilator and quickly shocked her back into rhythm. The monitor on the tricorder quickly became more steady and stabilized. “How many people did you have to fight through to get this?” Janeway joked as he quickly cauterized Sovak’s wound.
“You don’t wanna know,” said McKnight with a grimace. When Janeway looked over, McKnight just looked away.
“Alright, she’s good until we evacuate,” said Janeway as he activated the ship’s comm. at one of the few working stations, “What’s the status of the communications, shields, engines, and sensors Mr. Warrth?”
“Shield generator is destroyed, the armor is running though, communications are working for the time being, I can only give you half impulse, sensors are working, the convoy escorts are getting shredded by the Pyramids’ fighters, and weapons are down as most of the EPS is disabled,” replied Warrth from Engineering, where it was organized chaos, “We’re also getting sporadic reports from different decks about Borg assault drones.”
“Don’t worry about that, we’ll be off this ship soon enough. I’m ordering an evacuation authorization Janeway-Sigma-Delta-3-9-6-8-Omega. Warrth, transfer fleet command protocols and sensors to the helm,” Janeway began, “McKnight, you, Patterson, Clancy, and Deaver, get the wounded to the Medevac runabout and head for Trion Prime as fast as you can make it. I’m gonna take down those Pyramids.” McKnight and the others nodded with a chorus of “yes, sirs”. Janeway sat down at the helm, and punched up the maximum impulse available, and pulled up Battleaxe Squadron’s positions, and saw that the squadron’s guided weapons defense cruiser, the USS Tian An Men, was still able to fight. Janeway activated fleet command channel and ordered, “This is Commander Jake Janeway of the USS Musashi, I’m taking command of the squadron authorization Janeway-Sigma-Delta-3-9-6-8-Omega, Tian An Men, I need some cover from those drones and the Pyramids’ torpedoes.”
“Roger that, Battleaxe Leader,” Janeway heard over the comm., and he quickly punched in the collision course at the lead Pyramid. Coming in on the Musashi’s flank, the Tian An Men provided withering defensive fire from every arc, lashing out at enemy torpedoes and fighter drones with impunity. As escape pods shot away from the ship, the
Janeway punched in his access code, and activated the self destruct sequence and punched the final heading in. Bolting from his seat, Janeway jumped into the final emergency turbolift. “Requesting authorization for self destruct sequence,” the computer said calmly“Authorization Janeway-Sigma-Delta-3-9-6-8-Omega-Sigma-Charlie, countdown for 60 seconds,” said Janeway as the Arrow class Runabout, the USS Javelin in the shuttlebay, was activated and the emergency lift dropped at breakneck speed. Janeway sprinted from the turbolift to the open hatch of the Javelin and clambered into the runabout. Sliding into the seat, Janeway activated the shuttles engines, and as the ship’s hatch closed, he pulled out of the shuttlebay and through the bay’s magnetic containment field. As the Javelin pulled out the bay, the Musashi began its terminal run, plowing through several fighter drones. The targeted Pyramid finally took notice of the ship bearing down on her, and launched another volley of torpedoes at the crippled Musashi, but the Tian An Men again lashed out with her micro-torpedoes batteries, destroying all but two of the incoming. As the Tian An Men pulled away from the battleship, the Musashi shrugged off the two torpedoes, and smashed into the Pyramid, cracking the Musashi’s saucer. On the main console in engineering, the self-destruct countdown reached zero, and in less than a microsecond, every remaining phaser bank, photon, quantum, transphasic, and tricobalt torpedo overloaded and detonated, including the ship’s antimatter supply. The resulting explosion was massive, 700 trillion isotons, which all but shattered the Pyramid. The shockwave slammed into the Javelin and again Jake blacked out.

Might I suggest asking around the board for a proofreader? Also, you really need to incorporate paragraph breaks, like this:

As it stands, your post is a nigh-unreadable block of solid text, which is too bad, because you have an intriguing idea.

Prologue: Resistance

“Battleaxe Leader, this is Convoy Alpha-Delta-1238, requesting escort to Trion Prime, repeat, requesting escort to Trion Prime,” the comm. crackled, startling Commander Jake Janeway, the ship’s tactical and executive officer, from his meditation.

“Convoy-Alpha-Delta-1238, please clarify,” said Lt. Cmdr. Evan McKnight, the ship’s helm officer, as he rubbed his tired eyes.

“Battleaxe Leader, this is Captain Afyon of the USS Courageous-A, we’ve lost ¾ of our escort and are about to arrive in the Trion system, assistance is required,” replied Captain Afyon over the comm.

“Acknowledged, standby,” McKnight said into the comm., looking over at Fleet Captain Sovak for her decision. She looked over at Janeway, who just shrugged.

“You’re the captain, not me, ma’am,” Janeway replied, “But for the record, I don’t believe it’s a good idea, as the Borg have been hammering the convoys and the squad is not in the best condition; anything bigger than a Pyramid would crush us and the squadron.” Janeway reached out with his Betazoid empathic senses to see what the others thought about this decision, and all he could sense is apprehension and fear; there was also courage beginning to grow within them, emanating from Sovak, though she didn’t show it.

“Tell them we are on our way, order the fleet to Condition Red and to rendezvous at Point Alpha-2-3-7-Sierra,” Sovak said, brushing her hair out of the way.

“So ordered, launching defense drones and activating shields and ablative armo….” Janeway began before seeing two Remnant Pyramids decloak on his sensors. Janeway scrambled to find his balance as he felt the bridge crew’s terror when the ships appeared on screen. He quickly tried to lock on with phasers, but the set of pyramids were faster. The Pyramids launched a volley of torpedoes, almost three dozen per Pyramid, and they were targeted on the biggest threat to the Pyramids; which, unfortunately, was the Musashi. The defensive drones were quickly depleted of their micro torpedoes; the drones then defaulted to their backup programming, slamming into the incoming torpedoes. Though the drones managed to eliminate 2/3rds of the incoming, that still left twenty three incoming projectiles hurtling through space toward the Musashi. “Brace for impact!!!” shouted Janeway as he activated the ships comm. and attempted to reinforce the forward shields before impact. He failed. The first fifteen or so smashed into the powerful shields of the Musashi, then as the shields failed, the remainder plowed into the hull. Janeway and the rest of the bridge crew were thrown from their stations and suddenly all Janeway saw was darkness...

When Jake awoke, he saw a bridge in chaos. Consoles sparked, the railing around the bridge was crushed, with several jagged pieces jutting out. Several crew members were struggling to get up and as he looked around, he saw Sovak impaled on one of the jagged pieces of railing. “Oh, shit!” shouted Janeway and tapped his comm. badge, “MEDICAL EMERGENCY ON THE BRIDGE!!!” There was no response so Jake ran for the emergency medical kit at the back of the bridge, ignoring the emergency medical tips that were coming through his comm. badge, ripping it off and smashing it with his boot.

“What are you doing, sir?!” said McKnight, who ran over, all but ready to grab Janeway and stop him. “What the hell are you doing?!”

“Backoff, McKnight, I’m a combat medic!!!” said Janeway as he pushed the junior officer away and began using the medical tricorder to determine the extent of the damage. Damage to the liver and spleen, but no arteries hit, that’s good. Her pulse and heart rate are worry-some though, Janeway thought. “All right, we can move her.”

“Are you out of your Betazoid mind? She’s got a piece of metal sticking through her guts!!!” McKnight shouted and he was about to continue but Janeway stood up to his full height, a good four inches taller than McKnight and just stared at him, smoldering. “Yes, sir,” McKnight said meekly and began to help Janeway pick her up off the rod impaling her. Sovak groaned in pain, but blessedly remained unconscious. Suddenly, the tricorder’s alarm went off.

“Damn it, she’s starting to arrest! Put her down, put her down!” Janeway shouted as they gently lowered her to the ground, and Janeway reached for the rest of the kit and came up empty. Looking over, he saw the kit being used by Patterson and Clancy to help the crewmen who were down, one bleeding from almost every opening on his face and the other who had seemed to be having a seizure. “All right, McKnight, I got a job for you to do, you have five minutes to get down to Medical on B deck and bring back a EMedkit, before she goes into full arrest, understood?” McKnight just nodded and ran for the Jefferies tube as Janeway began compressions, keeping Sovak’s heart going.

Re: Star Trek: Fighter Command

Janeway kept up compressions until, less than two minutes later, McKnight came back with the EMedkit. McKnight quickly tossed it to Janeway, who quickly pulled out the defribilator and quickly shocked her back into rhythm. The monitor on the tricorder quickly became more steady and stabilized. “How many people did you have to fight through to get this?” Janeway joked as he quickly cauterized Sovak’s wound.

“You don’t wanna know,” said McKnight with a grimace. When Janeway looked over, McKnight just looked away.

“Alright, she’s good until we evacuate,” said Janeway as he activated the ship’s comm. at one of the few working stations, “What’s the status of the communications, shields, engines, and sensors Mr. Warrth?”

“Shield generator is destroyed, the armor is running though, communications are working for the time being, I can only give you half impulse, sensors are working, the convoy escorts are getting shredded by the Pyramids’ fighters, and weapons are down as most of the EPS is disabled,” replied Warrth from Engineering, where it was organized chaos, “We’re also getting sporadic reports from different decks about Borg assault drones.”

“Don’t worry about that, we’ll be off this ship soon enough. I’m ordering an evacuation authorization Janeway-Sigma-Delta-3-9-6-8-Omega. Warrth, transfer fleet command protocols and sensors to the helm,” Janeway began, “McKnight, you, Patterson, Clancy, and Deaver, get the wounded to the Medevac runabout and head for Trion Prime as fast as you can make it. I’m gonna take down those Pyramids.” McKnight and the others nodded with a chorus of “yes, sirs”. Janeway sat down at the helm, and punched up the maximum impulse available, and pulled up Battleaxe Squadron’s positions, and saw that the squadron’s guided weapons defense cruiser, the USS Tian An Men, was still able to fight. Janeway activated fleet command channel and ordered, “This is Commander Jake Janeway of the USS Musashi, I’m taking command of the squadron authorization Janeway-Sigma-Delta-3-9-6-8-Omega, Tian An Men, I need some cover from those drones and the Pyramids’ torpedoes.”

“Roger that, Battleaxe Leader,” Janeway heard over the comm., and he quickly punched in the collision course at the lead Pyramid. Coming in on the Musashi’s flank, the Tian An Men provided withering defensive fire from every arc, lashing out at enemy torpedoes and fighter drones with impunity. As escape pods shot away from the ship, the Musashi dove through a torrent of energy coming from the enemy ships.

Janeway punched in his access code, and activated the self destruct sequence and punched the final heading in. Bolting from his seat, Janeway jumped into the final emergency turbolift. “Requesting authorization for self destruct sequence,” the computer said calmly

“Authorization Janeway-Sigma-Delta-3-9-6-8-Omega-Sigma-Charlie, countdown for 60 seconds,” said Janeway as the Arrow class Runabout, the USS Javelin in the shuttlebay, was activated and the emergency lift dropped at breakneck speed. Janeway sprinted from the turbolift to the open hatch of the Javelin and clambered into the runabout. Sliding into the seat, Janeway activated the shuttles engines, and as the ship’s hatch closed, he pulled out of the shuttlebay and through the bay’s magnetic containment field. As the Javelin pulled out the bay, the Musashi began its terminal run, plowing through several fighter drones. The targeted Pyramid finally took notice of the ship bearing down on her, and launched another volley of torpedoes at the crippled Musashi, but the Tian An Men again lashed out with her micro-torpedoes batteries, destroying all but two of the incoming. As the Tian An Men pulled away from the battleship, the Musashi shrugged off the two torpedoes, and smashed into the Pyramid, cracking the Musashi’s saucer. On the main console in engineering, the self-destruct countdown reached zero, and in less than a microsecond, every remaining phaser bank, photon, quantum, transphasic, and tricobalt torpedo overloaded and detonated, including the ship’s antimatter supply. The resulting explosion was massive, 700 trillion isotons, which all but shattered the Pyramid. The shockwave slammed into the Javelin and again Jake blacked out.

Re: Star Trek: Fighter Command

Lt. Cmdr. Evan McKnight was in hell… at least he thought so. The USS Tennessee, the Medevac variant of the Danube class Runabout, was pounded by micro-torpedoes and cutting beams. As McKnight dove the runabout through a torrent of micro-torpedoes, avoiding almost all of them. Suddenly, the Tennessee was stopped in its tracks as the Pyramid switched targets from the capital ships harassing it to the escape pods and shuttles from the Musashi, vengefully lashing out with cutting and tractor beams. The Tennessee was quickly caught in a tractor beam that stopped her dead in her tracks. The Tennessee fired its singular quantum torpedo and blasted at the Pyramid with it's dual phaser banks, but to no avail. The Tennessee shook, and the runabout's power failed. Out of the corner of his eye, he saw a green flash go across the cockpit windows, getting bigger and bigger, until it disappeared into the Pyramid. Nanoseconds later, the tractor beam projector exploded in a green blue fireball, releasing the Tennessee and restoring its power. The comm. came alive with Janeway's voice, “Do you have power, McKnight?”

“Roger that, sir!” he replied as he punched the impulse engines up to full and began to follow the Arrow class Runabout that Janeway was flying.

“No, don't follow me, McKnight! Get the hell out of here, you son of a Bolian!!!” replied Janeway, and the Tennessee broke off from the Javelin and went to warp.

The Javelin dove as the vengeful Pyramid began pummeling it with multiple cutting beams, launching seven gravimetric torpedoes at Javelin. Janeway pulled the runabout up and over the Pyramid, and then pulled a high-g turn, reversing direction and dove, confusing the torpedoes' guidance. Having bought himself some time, he pulled up the squadron’s command and control interface, and activated the comm. “Battleaxe Leader to Courageous-A, get that damned convoy out of here, before the Pyramid figures what they're supposed to be doing. Paine, Agamemnon, Kraken, and Providence, cover the convoy and keep up the pressure on that Pyramid. Tian An Men and Minuteman, stay after those fighter drones. The rest of the squadron, go to rally point Bravo-Sigma-3 and try to get some support for us.” There's almost no chance we're gonna survive this without support, the best chance is to get as many ships as possible to the rally point, and safeguarding that convoy until they get to Trion Prime. The Javelin rumbled as it was hit by fighter drones' cutting beams and pounded by micro gravimetric torpedoes, rolling and wheeling around, avoiding as much of the enemy fire as possible.

“Roger that,” came the chorus of replies coming from the comm, and the Paine, Agamemnon, Kraken, and Providence all came about, weapons ablaze, firing everything they could still fire. The Agamemnon and the Kraken, both Akira II Class Pocket Battleships, simultaneously launched four transphasic torpedoes from each of their eight forward launchers. The torpedoes streaked in on their respective targets, thirty two of which shredded the fighter drones while the Tian An Men and Minuteman blasted away at incoming enemy torpedoes. The remainder of the transphasic torpedoes smashed into the Pyramid. The Pyramid began to shudder and quickly broke apart. As whoops of celebration began on the command channel, sixty five transwarp conduits opened up, reveling dozens of fighter drones and among them, a lone tactical cube. Oh, we are so screwed.

“All ships, begin immediate withdraw, I repeat begin immediate withdraw, rendezvous at rally point Alpha-Whiskey 4!!!” Janeway said as he began taking withering fire from a dozen fighters, quickly overwhelming his shields. Janeway began maneuvering wildly and chaotically to lose the pursuers, and succeeded in losing 2/3rds of them, but the remaining were determined to destroy the Javelin. The Javelin dove into the cloud of drones, weaving and rolling, and lashed out with its pulse phaser cannons and micro-torpedoes. The runabout's armored hull was holding off the onslaught of energy being unleashed upon it, but for how long was anyone's guess. Around him, the Kraken was rammed by a dozen drones, destroying a good half of her saucer. The Agamemnon, caught in on of the Cube's tractors, was slowly obliterated as the Cube pumped torpedo after torpedo in the wounded ship. The Thomas Paine, a Patriot class Heavy Cruiser, was listing and unresponsive as it was swarmed by drones, while the Providence exploded from a warp core breach, leaving no trace left of the once proud Nova Mk II class vessel. Suddenly, one drone bounced off the cockpit of the Javelin, cracking it, while a well placed shot disabled the ship's power. Realizing the danger, Jake grabbed for his pilot's helmet sealing mechanism, but as the cockpit's window shattered, he realized it was too late and was pulled into the dark void of space....

When Jake awoke, he was on an assimilation table basked in the green glow of the Borg vinculum. He struggled against the bonds of the forcefield surrounding him to no avail. Suddenly, from beyond the forcefield came a shape, one he could not make out, until it resolved itself as Dr. Jack Weber, Jake's roommate at the academy.

“God, Jack, you scared the crap out of me!!!” Janeway said as the doctor deactivated the forcefield restraints and Jake sat up. “What in the hell are you doing here?”

“Besides saving your ass yet again, I'm part of Task Force Freedom now, chief medical officer on the USS Rhode Island, and part of the medical team that saved your life” said Weber as he strode toward Janeway and Janeway began to try and stand up. “Whoa, that's not a good idea, buddy. You're still suffering the effects of being sucked into space like you were. Besides, you're gonna wanna stay seated. I've got some bad news.”

“What, is Sovak okay? Did the convoy not make it?” Janeway asked. “Damn it, tell me what happened Jack!” Janeway demanded as he stood up, wobbling slightly as he did so.

“What happened was all the ships you ordered to stay to cover the convoy were destroyed by the Borg tactical cube and its fighters. The Tian An Men was destroyed while making a suicidal run at the Cube, to delay them from attacking the planet. Minuteman was captured and assimilated by the Remnant. 6000 personnel were killed. It gets worse. The JAG is calling your decisions into question and convening a board of inquiry to investigate after Starfleet Command denounced your actions as reckless and called for your court-martial,” Weber reported grimly. Janeway all but collapsed in shock.

“Who called for the court-martial?” Jake replied in a tone almost too low to hear.

“Jake, I'm pretty sure you don't wanna kno...” began Weber, but he was cut off.

“To hell with your opinion, who called for my goddamned court-martial?!” Janeway screamed as he glared at Weber.

“Your mom, Jake. It was your mom.”

Re: Star Trek: Fighter Command

Chapter 1: Inquisition, Stardate 79540.31

“Commander Jacob Calvin Janeway, please stand,” Admiral Alynna Nechayev said as she and her adjunct entered the court chamber escorted by the bailiffs, and she sat down at the bench, with her aide in the seat to her right. “In accordance with the Starfleet Code of Conduct and the Uniform Code of Justice, this court finds you not guilty of all charges,” Nechayev said with a smile.

“Thank you, Admiral.” replied Janeway as he saluted, a habit leftover from his Marine days. When Nechayev realized what he was doing, she returned the salute smartly. Jake turned to his attorney and said, “Thank you for all your work and taking the time to come to my defense, Ambassador.”

“It was the least I could do,” replied Ambassador Tuvok as he stood, “I found your mother's insistence on a court-martial quite... illogical.” Janeway nodded as he followed the ambassador out of the chamber and into the bustling corridors of Starfleet Command. “Your actions were as they say, 'by the book' and not in violation of Starfleet combat doctrine or the Code of Conduct. It was simply logical that you were not at fault. Onto another matter. How are your symptoms? The Doctor requested that I ask. He also requested I tell you that you are overdue for your physical.”

“Sleeping is much better than it was several months ago. The nightmares still occur occasionally and the flashbacks come and go. The court-martial didn't exactly help matters. And with regards to the physical, tell Joe that it's not happening, I expect to be very busy in the next month or so, and after that, I hope to be part of the Andromeda expedition,” replied Jake as he and Tuvok walked to the turbolift. “Level 12.”

“I do not mean to pry into your personal affairs, but why are you headed to Level 12? that is where StratCom is located,” Tuvok asked as the turbolift lurched ever so subtly and began rising through Starfleet Command's main building.

“I scheduled an appointment for a proposal to Starfleet Strategic Command for 11:30 hours,” replied Janeway as he looked at his chronometer.

“You scheduled an appointment with StratCom without knowing if you were going to be cleared. That is a rather bold move, if I may say so,” said Tuvok, raising an eyebrow.

“Well I knew I did nothing wrong, you did not think I was wrong, so I made the appointment,” Janeway replied with a sly grin.

“A gamble,” Tuvok shot back.

“An act of faith, you should try it sometime,” said Jake as the turbolift reached Level 12 and the doors opened up quickly and Janeway walked out and turned to face Tuvok, “Up for a game of kal-toh, before you leave for Confederation space? Maybe tonight?”

“It is as you would say 'a date',” replied Tuvok before the doors closed.

“Looking forward to it...” Janeway muttered as he turned around and strode into the briefing room.

Re: Star Trek: Fighter Command

“Admirals Ruiz, Adislo, and Meyer, Commodore Sovak, Captains Ibanez, Hernandez, and Ma'Reth, thank you for your time. I am here to present to you Project: Hartmann, a joint proposal from the Starfleet Corps of Engineers, Daystrom Institute, Annapolis Office of Starfleet Tactics, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Swift Military Technologies, and the West Point Tactical and Strategic Affairs Commission, The proposal is on your PADDs to help you follow along.” said Janeway as the projector flashed the logos of each of the organizations that Jake had mentioned on the screen. “In light of the Siege of Trion Prime, there have been many developments in terms of tactics. The Borg Remnant, before their fleet's surrender, illustrated tactics that were extremely effective against all levels of capital ships from frigates to cruisers to destroyers. These tactics were modified carrier tactics. Using Borg drones specifically designed for spaceflight, they attacked in groups of four, overwhelming the firing arcs of all but Guided Weapon Defense type vessels, and even then a group of eight could overwhelm even the best gunnery computer. With almost every major power in the galaxy having developed or deployed fighter craft of their own and the dissolution of the Galactic Union, the threat of Federation starships facing an enemy fighter attack is increasing every day. With the exploration of the Andromeda galaxy, it is becoming extremely....” Janeway stopped as an aide came in and handed a PADD to Captain Hernandez. “Something I should know, Captain?”

“No, by all means, continue Commander,” replied Hernandez as she all but sneered at Janeway. Ok, there's one person that I'm never gonna get on my side. She then put the PADD down and returned her attention to the briefing.

“As I was saying, with the exploration of the Andromeda galaxy, it is becoming extremely likely that Federation and Allied starships will eventually face an Andromedan power with fighters. While some are calling for research into more advanced targeting, tracking, and interception components and computers. The organizations I represent, on the other hand, are of a different mind. We think that the best course of action is a tactic that was created by the British, American, and to a certain extent, Japanese, navies. This tactic is carrier warfare,” Janeway stated. “With the collaboration of Swift, SCE, and myself, we have designed both a starfighter craft and a pod that can be attached to either the Nebula, Ronin, Kelvin Refit, Concorde, Charleston, Commonwealth Refit, Armada, and Aquiescent classes and subclasses. This pod contains two hangars with two low power tractor beam projectors, eight point defense turrets with their ammunition supplies, and a Spaceborne Warning and Control System sensor suite with a command section, as well as repair and maintenance facilities. This is a design of the pod showing all the components and the layout of the pod. This is the Razor class Strike Fighter, a one man fighter, developed by M.I.T.'s engineering department, SCE's Commodore Scott, and myself. It is armed to the teeth, with six miniature pulse phaser cannons, four quantum/transphasic micro-torpedo launchers with one hundred micro-torpedoes per launcher, and six torpedoes of any type with one launcher,” Jake continued as he looked around for responses and reaction, but his stony faced audience betrayed no emotion, so he resumed the presentation, “The carrier pod shown here can carry six full squadrons of twelve fighters a squadron. With the design of the carrier pod, a designated carrier ship would be able launch her fighters in 15 seconds flat, unlike the more traditional “shuttlecarrier” which takes close to 10 minutes to launch her shuttles. In simulations, a squadron of Razors was able to destroy three Intrepid II Light Battleships with minimal casualties of their own at only 5 ships loss. While this may seem indicative of being unprepared to face this threat, that is only partially true; it demonstrates the firepower and capability of the fighters. In another simulation, we had a flight of four Razors defend a small tactical group of fifteen ships from a group of twelve Breen cruisers modified as a torpedo cruisers. While our tactical group slightly outnumbered the Breen, the Breen's torpedo armament outclassed our ships. Defending them from multiple torpedo strikes, the Razors managed to act as point defense weapon platforms, eliminating enough enemy torpedoes that the tactical group was able to destroy almost all the Breen, with only one ship disabled.”

“May I interrupt, Commander Janeway?” asked Sovak, with a raised hand, “What exactly allows the Razors to be able to intercept the torpedoes, because most target/intercept computers are too large to fit on anything smaller than a frigate chassis? After all, these computers are exceedingly powerful.”

“With the help of Swift's, M.I.T.'s, and the Daystrom Institute's computer research departments, we managed to shrink target/intercept computers by 300%. Also, we decreased the amount of targets it could track at one time from 96 to 48 torpedoes/missiles. This allows the computer to be mounted on fighter type craft or runabouts,” Janeway said as he pointed to the illustration of the new computer.

“I have a question, Commander?” asked Vice Admiral Adislo with a grimace.”These fighter craft, what makes them better than standard runabouts or shuttles? They are far easier and cheaper to produce,” Adislo inquired.

“The weaponry, shielding, and armor give it an excellent edge over any runabout or shuttle, and it is the only craft below a frigate that is equipped with quantum warp drive, making it the fastest small craft in the fleet. This makes it an excellent scouting platform. It is also the first ship of its size to be equipped with an ablative armor generator. Its sensor suite is extremely sophisticated, much better than anything in its class, other than a runabout configured for science duty, and no runabout is as heavily armed,” replied Janeway.

“Commander, what is the cost per unit? Both for the hangar pod and the Razor?” asked Admiral Ruiz.

“The hangar pod costs approximately 10,000,000 Federation credits or 1,000,000 latinum pieces. The fighter is approximately 1,000,000 or 100,000 per unit,” said Jake as he gestured at the graphs.

“So in total, for a test squadron and carrier platform, we're talking about 22,000,000 credits? This is ridiculous, I'm sick of listening to this farce of a Starfleet commander!” shouted Captain Hernandez, fuming.

“Excuse me, Captain, may I ask what you are talking about?” replied Commodore Sovak with a quizzical look.

“This officer is barely legitimate. He was just court-martialed for dereliction of duty and conduct unbecoming a Starfleet officer!” shouted Hernandez, as she nodded to her aide, an ensign, who handed out datacards, “These datacards contain the personnel and court-martial records of Commander Jacob Calvin Janeway.”

“You may outrank me, Captain, but my personnel records are sealed and for good reason,” replied Janeway, concealing his contempt. Stay calm, for now, at least.

“Recommended by then Commanders Thomas Paris and Harry Kim, now COs of the Indiana and Rhode Island, is that correct, Commander?” asked Captain Hernandez.

“That is correct, Captain,” replied Janeway, holding his tongue and his temper in check.

“Why did they recommend you?” she asked, knowing full well what the answer was.

“At the time, Lt. Cmdr. Paris and Lt. Kim were my flight instructors, they taught me to fly shuttlecraft as well as old Terran fighter aircraft. They both thought I would be an asset to Starfleet as a helm officer,” replied Janeway, as cool as possible, despite knowing what was next.

“Ok, then, just a few baseline questions out of the way. Now, is it correct that you were ruled responsible for USS Musashi's loss at the Siege of Trion Prime?” Hernandez spat.

“No, the court-martial proceeding determined that I was not at fault for the loss of the Musashi,” began Janeway and he was about to continue, but was cut off.

“Isn't it also true that this isn't the first time you were court-martialed?” asked Hernandez as she came out from behind the desk.

“Yes,” said Janeway, offering no further details.

“It was after you were implicated in a plot to kill President Picard, correct?” she asked, venomously.

“Yes, but the charges were dropped after my Marine company proved the charges false.” replied Janeway, struggling with keeping his anger from getting the best of him.

“Don't you mean the SPECOPS Delta detachment? You were a member, were you not?” she probed.

“I don't remember. However, I do seem to recall that my mother called for your court-martial in 2394 after you, quite frankly, screwed up a delicate follow up for a first contact with the Yeartin,” Janeway let fly, “In fact, you were demoted for conduct unbecoming, if I remember correctly.”

“I.... I.... I.....” Hernandez stammered, shock on her face.

“Enough of this, both of you! We will consider your proposal, Commander Janeway, after we confer with Command,” Admiral Ruiz said, cutting them both off.

“Understood, thank you for your time. Admirals, Commodore, Captains,” replied Jake, nodding to each of them, turning about, and confidently walked out of the room. What a colossal waste of time...

Re: Star Trek: Fighter Command

Sitting outside the CINC's office, Captain Eliza Hernandez was utterly terrified at the prospect of facing the Commander in Chief-Starfleet and for reasons she did not yet know. Her badge suddenly chirped and she practically jumped, “Captain Hernandez, please come in.” Captain Hernandez stood nervously and made her way to the doors. The doors opened and she slowly made her way into the CINC's office. The Starfleet five star admiral was staring out the window at the Golden Gate Bridge and Hernandez stood there for almost a minute before the admiral spoke. “Sit, Captain Hernandez,” she said in a tone that was almost gentle but had a harder edge to it. Hernandez quickly sat in the chair in front of the admiral's desk.

“Admiral...” Hernandez began, but she was cut off by a swift motion from the CINC.

“Stay quiet and just listen, Captain. We both know we don't like each other, but we share a common goal, we both want my son out of Starfleet....” said Admiral Kathryn Janeway.

Chapter 2: Partial Catharsis, Stardate 79546.06

Commander Jake Janeway stood and paced outside of the office of Deanna Troi-Riker-Riker, too nervous to sit. She knows I want this to be my last session, why is it taking so long? Is this deliberate to see what my response would be from waiting? Nervously, he glanced at the camera that was positioned to cover the waiting room. Surprised I never noticed that damned thing in here after 59 mandatory visits. “Commander Janeway, please come in.” Come on in for one more hour of hell. The Commander waited for the previous patient to come out, a Marine Lieutenant, and Jake entered.

“Hey, what's up? Think you're gonna succeed in pshrinking me today, Captain?” Jake sarcastically said as he flopped down on the couch in the office, grinning sardonically.

“I've told time after time, call me Deanna. After all, I did teach you to control your gift,” Troi-Riker replied, apparently unfazed by Janeway's demeanor.

“So that's the route we're taking today, hmm? My gift? Remember, I was a xenopsychology major at the academy. I honestly expected better from a counselor of your caliber. Tsk, tsk, tsk,” Jake replied, keeping up his sarcastic demeanor.

“Come now, Jake. I've noticed something in our previous sessions, you haven't mentioned making use of your empathic abilities since we've begun, and I certainly haven't noticed you using them during the sessions, either. So, care to explain? Or should I bring my husband in, so you can laugh about the time you destroyed his ship?” she replied, matching Janeway's sarcasm.

“Ok, point made, I know I've been avoiding that subject, it honestly just hasn't...” Deanna's stern look quickly put an end to his excuse. “Alright, fine, what do you wanna know?”

“Why haven't you used your empathic abilities since the attack? Before you claim you have, that little implant that keeps the voices from overwhelming you that we installed at age two? It monitors your empathic and telepathic usage and per the PATI Act, I have the ability to download the records. As a fellow empath, I don't want to do that.” replied Deanna, a hard edge to her voice.

“You've been saving this card for a while, haven't you Counselor?” returned Janeway, his voice steely.

“Answer the question, Jake!” she replied angrily, but her tone softened again, “Please.”

“Fine, you wanna bloody know?! My “gift” is the reason 6000 men and women are dead!!!” Jake screamed and flipped the coffee table in front of him, then collapsed onto the couch.

“What are you talking about, Jake? What happened?” she replied and sat down next to Jake. Deanna attempted to put an arm around him, but he pulled away. Janeway's shoulders sagged, and he hung his head in shame.

“Right before the battle, I used my ability to see what my crewmates were feeling, and when the Pyramids decloaked...” Jake stopped as he tried to regain his composure, “Their panic.... it just overwhelmed me, and I couldn't.... react, couldn't.... think, couldn't.... even shut them out. The use of my “gift” allowed them to get the first shots off, and 300 people, just on the Musashi.... died because of it. Not to mention all hands on the Jefferson, the Leyte Gulf, the Oppenheimer, and the Wolf 359.... Then there's the Tian An Men and the Minuteman.... All totaled, my actions led to the death or assimilation of 6000 people.... Then the JAG rules that I was not liable.... that's like putting salt in the wound.”

“Jake, you have to see what they saw... I never told you, but I read the report on the battle. You did everything right, you saved the convoy, you did your best to protect your crew, and you kept 40,000 civilians and military personnel from being assimilated or killed by ordering the rest of the squadron to retreat. I understand your frustration, but...” Troi-Riker began.

“No, you don't understand and you never will,” Jake straightened and put the mask of anger back on. “This is such a waste of time! Have a good life, counselor.” Jake stood, and stormed out of the office. Troi-Riker tried to follow, but the door closed behind him before she could.

“I hate it when he does that,” Troi-Riker said as she bent over and began picking up the pieces of glass from the coffee table.

Re: Star Trek: Fighter Command

Just finished your prologue, and it's an exciting lead-in to this story. This new Janeway is cut from the same cloth, impulsive, quick-witted, but with a deeply ingrained loyalty to his crew (most especially his captain).

Terrific combat sequence with lots of action, but your narrative flow is easy to follow despite the hectic nature of the encounter with the Borg ships.

Good stuff!

Re: Star Trek: Fighter Command

Why thank you, Gibraltar, it means a lot coming from you, haven't read much of your stuff, but what I have read is awesome.
PS: This is just the motivation I need to finish this next chapter.
PPS: Or at least the next section of the chapter.
