Dyson Sphere: Multiplicity

Note: With the demise of the monthly contest, I decided to post the unfinished fanfics that I had been working on for that contest...

This is one I was working on for the August 2009 and October 2011 contests which had themes of doubles causing an issue and characters dealing with a dilemma respectively.

Star Trek: Dyson Sphere: Multiplicity Part 1

15 August 2419
A not so average forest on an island in the Dyson Sphere
Exploration Team Hector Commanders Log;Stardate 86581.5.This is our second day since we left the Hector on our journey towards the unusual subspace energy reading located deep in a forest. A forest so thick that the Hector could not land any closer to the unknown phenomenon, or technology, than it did. We are about to set out again after our nights rest.

The Exploration Team Commander, Commander Zachary Samuels, finished the log recording on his PADD and looked around to check that the Exploration team had finished packing the campsite.
He saw that they had. We are ready to set out sir, his second in command,Weralla Vanessa, said.

5 hours later the Exploration team approached the energy reading. Report, Samuels said.
Weralla and a few other team members looked at theirtricorders and conferred.

The reading is localised 50 meters ahead, another of the team members, Sara TElanna, said.

Lets go, Samuels said.

1 minute later they found the source of the energy reading. It was a structure that looked like a stone doorway, with an instrument panel that also looked like stone on the side of one of the pillars.
This is the source of the energy reading. Some sort of gateway by the looks of it. But there is no indication of Iconian technology, Weralla said.

TElanna pressed a button on the instrument panel...

Suddenly the energy levels increased and the gateway shook.
TElanna! How many times I have said to not touch the artefacts before a through investigation! Samuels said.

Sorry sir, TElanna said.

There was a WEERWERZEEZ as the device powered up, and a field of white light appeared in the gateway...

Interesting, the field in the doorway does not register on my scanner, TElanna said.

Lets back off from this shall we? Samuels asked.

The team backed off from the gateway, but then something happened. With a scream, a person arrived through the gateway.

This cannot be! TElanna said, as she looked at the other person.
And yet it is, Weralla said.

The person who had come through the gateway was a splitting image of Sara TElanna...

An alternate reality? the double of TElanna asked herself.

It appears so, the TElanna who was there to begin with said.


The team was stupefied, each member was wondering what to do with the alternate TElanna, whom had appeared a few minutes before.

We have to see if she can be sent back the same way she came here.TElanna said.

Thats obvious! the alternate TElanna said.

TElanna looked at her other self. She looked exactly the same, down to the hair colouring and style, and the small tattoos on her earlobes. The other universe might not be that different, she thought. Let me guess, you were about to touch a control on the device? she asked.

Yes! the alternate TElanna said.

Right, Weralla said.

And then the gateway opened, and I stumbled through, the alternate TElanna said.

Its like Im seeing double, we need a way to tell you apart. Samuels said.

I am reading a divergent quantum signature, sir, TElanna said as she scanned her alternate self with her tricorder.

I meant visually, lieutenant, Samuels said. He noted that both TElannas had the same rank.

I could take my uniform jacket off, the alternate TElanna said.

No, not a good idea in this environment, Samuels said. So Im the team leader in the alternate reality, thats not unexpected.

There are other ways to distinguish yourself visually, TElanna said.

I knew you would say that, the alternate TElanna said. She unclipped her hair from the clips, letting it fall over her ears. Like this?

It will have to do, TElanna said, leaving her hair in the clips for the moment.

I agree, Samuels said.

Now thats settled, we need to find a way to send her home, Weralla said.

Definitely, the alternate TElanna said stridently.

Which control did you press? the original TElanna asked.

None, the alternate said.

Oh, yeah, Sara said, remembering what the other had said.

Which control did you press? Alt TElanna said, echoing her doppleganger.

This one, Sara said, hovering her finger over the control.

Theres no guarantee that pressing it again would open it to my universe, Alt TElanna said.

I would agree, Samuels said.

We have to examine it more closely, Alt TElanna said.

We can stay here for a week before we have to head back to the Hector, Samuels said.

If the supply situation is the same, we could stay ten days at a stretch, Alt TElanna said.

We could leave you and our TElanna here in six days and head back to the Hector for more supplies. It can stay on station for a year at a stretch.

It shouldnt take that long, Sara said.

Lets get to it then, AltTElanna said.

Half an hour of attempting to decipher the symbols later, the TElannas were ready to give their first attempt.

We have cross-referenced the layout of the panel with known Iconian designs. Although this isnt Iconian, there are enough in common to give this a try, Weralla said.

Give it a go, Samuels ordered.

TElanna Prime stood at the control panel, while her alternate stood in front of the Gateway where she had emerged. Given the positioning of the control panel, they stood to the side of each other.

Ready? Alt TElenna asked.

Im ready, TElanna Prime said. She input a sequence she was sure said Manual Override and pressed the same button
