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.
