And hail our outpost and tell them that the cruisers are to met whit the hives, 2 per hive.

Astra says she will contact the hive regularly on radio for status reports. She then picks a technician and a few drones to accompany her to the cruiser.
The cruiser leaves the ship and haeds to the nearest star system.
Astra to technician: "Set course to the fourth planet. It has got human inhabitants. Should we have the occasion we can cull a settlement or two. I have a Wraith lifesign signature on the northern hemisphere."
Technician: "Course is set. We will arrive there in approximately one hour."
Astra: "I will rest for a short time. Call me when we are there."



NOTE: Please try not to jump to hyperspace while Astra is away. Her cruiser has no hyperdrive. If you need to get away fast make sure you'll come back later to pick Astra up. :D

Well we are suspecting todd caus he has contacts whit atlantis and ofcuorse we don't know him very well.

I know that the wraith would have done like this.

The technician informs Astra that they have arrived at the planet. He also informs Astra that there is no need to be anxious the hive could jump to hyperspace without them because their cruiser is a new model equipped with a hyperdrive developed by the Chief Scientist. :D

Astra looks at the lifesign detector display.
"The single lifesign is right ahead of us in that forest. Please find a place to land the cruiser in safe distance from the next human settlement."
Astra sends out a telepathic message to the unknown Wraith. She soon realises that it's not the queen. She had already suspected that.
It's a grown male and he is in distress. He is chased by some angry humans and asks for her help. She orders the drones to ready their weapons and follow her leaving the technician to guard the cruiser.

Astra runs stealthily through the forest followed by the drones. She picks up the telepathic distress call and locates the male ahead. He is in bad condition and his clothes are battered. He is surrounded by five humans who are about to kill him.
Astra orders the drones to fan out and circle the humans. She makes the humans see apparitions to distract them. They are no match for the drones and in short time all humans are paralysed. The male thanks Astra and explains how he had been marooned on this planet for years after his hive had left him behind accidentally after a misfortunous culling. He is a specialist for weapon systems so he will be very useful for Queen Inga's hive. They make their way back to the cruiser, take off and head back to the hive.

Astra sighs and thinks "So, we haven't found the queen or Kal'shath. That's bad."
She glances at the dishevelled figure in the rear part of the cruiser.
"But we have saved a useful life today and that's good."

She then informs the commander that they will arrive at the hive in a few hours.

*Kal'shath does not know how long she and Queen Inga have been left in this cell, before a group of armed marines enter armed with wraith stunners. There are two humans in white coats standing behind them looking scared. Kal'shath smiles and hisses at them, enjoying the way they flinch.*
*She notices the human Sheppard standing at the side of teh cage.*
"so, which one do you want to use first? you asked for some female wraith so you could test your new retro-virus. Pick one already."
*Kal'shath sidles in front of Queen Inga, intending to defend her with her life if neccery*

*She hisses at Inga and hopes she will forgive her actions, but is the only way to save her Queen.*
"Be silent," she hisses, "Do not shame your Queen in this manner."
*She stares stoiclly at the man Sheppard. He and the other humans seem shocked by the display of companionship from a wraith.*
"I beileve I am the one you require for your...experiments"
*sheppard, still shocked, nods to the marines. They led her out, but are forced to stun Queen Inga to prevent her from rescuing her friend and Keeper.*
"I'm sorry." Kal'shath tells her telepathicaly, before she too is stunned.

When are astra coming back?when?

Sudenly a hyperspace window aper next to the hive.

The commander says:Arme weapons and standby darts!
*other hives halling*
Commander:"Identy fy your self or be destroyd"
Other commander:Relax it's just me(the commander from the outpost.)
This is one of the ships under construction and they are all out in space now
so i hope that my head wont fall into your hands

Have you found anything yet?

Other cmdr:No have you?

No we have not, but my acting chief scientist went to a planet where we detected a wraith bio signature and it was a skilled weapons officer that has joind our hive.
I'm transmiting a file where there are mods to better the hives defences,speed and hull strenght.

Other cmdr:Thanks i will install them on every one of our ships, including cruisers.

Good, but input an auto self destruct on every ship that if some one tryes to down load it(whit the exeption of members of our hive) the ship will self destruct.
And whit this mod the explosion will destroy every thing whitin 10 billion KM.

Other cmdr:Okay good to know, i'm returning to the out post and we have begone to construkt new ships, so expect more ships'.

On the flight deck Astra is preparing the second rescue trip. She oversees the technician programming the coordinates of the destination into the cruiser's navigation computer as she senses the approach of another Wraith. She is surprised to see it is the weapons specialist. He looks better now, well-fed, with new clothing and he obviously had enjoyed grooming his hair the first time in years. He bows and asks if he could accompany the search party.
Astra is puzzled by his request.
"You can come with us if you wish. Still I must ask you if that is wise. I would guess that you first wanted to enjoy a few days of recovery in the comfort of a civilised hiveship before going onto a mission again."

He looks up into her face for the first time and she notices the hunted look in his eyes. Restlessness emanates from his mind as he answers.
"My mistress, you are searching for lost Wraith. I have suffered severely from being separated from my kind and I cannot bear the thought of others like me being still out there. Let me help you rescue your Queen and Keeper and others that may be out there."

Astra is impressed by his determiation and allows him to join them.
The cruiser takes off and leaves the hiveship. Astra informs the commander (rasunda) where she will be going to and that she will be available on radio.

Radio transmission: "Good, and tell the weapons specialist to upgrade the cruisers weapons!"
"Understood. Astra out."

Astra turns around and faces the weapons specialist.
"You have heard the commander. See what you can do with our weapons systems."
He nods and sets to work.

"What information do we have of the planet we are heading for?" she asks the technician.

"It is uninhabited. The climate is desert-like in all latitudes due to the double sun it is orbiting. The Atlantians could have an outpost lab there where they have taken the queen and the keeper. I'm getting two lifesign readings."

"I really hope it is them this time." Astra thinks. Suddenly the ship rocks and Astra grabs hold of a seat for steadying herself.

"We are under fire!" the technician exclaims. "A facility on the planet has opened fire on us. I detect the Wraith lifesigns there."

Astra reaches out with her mind to make contact only to flinch back when she feels the aggression from the two strange Wraith.
"It seems we have chanced upon an enemy laboratory. Pull the cruiser out of their weapons range. I will hail the commander (rasunda) for further orders."

Transmission to the hive:
"Commander, we have found a lab of an enemy hive. Should we try to investigate it or should we return to the hive?"

Status report to commander:
We are still in orbit of the planet out of weapons range of the facility.
We can only detect two lifesigns but that doesn't necessarily means that there are only two Wraith defending the facility. There could be more Wraith in hibernation.
So we don't know against how many enemies we are up to.
We have picked up a high energy reading. A power output comparable to that of a ZPM. We could try to attack the facility and get a hold on the -presumed- ZPM.
Shall we do that?

Astra orders her crew to attack the facility. The weapons specialist has increased the fire range of the cruiser's cannons but it's still a dangerous venture. Dodging the enemy fire Astra steers the cruiser through the planet's atmosphere while the weapons specialist tries to take out the enemy's cannons with well aimed shots.

When he finally succeeds the cruiser has taken minimal damage but landed safely. Astra, the weapons specialist and the drones leave the cruiser and make their way into the facility without hindrance.
"We can be sure there are only two Wraith here. If there had been hibernating Wraith as well they would have been wakened by now. Still we have to be careful. We will split up. I will take four drones and head to the right, you will lead the other three drones to the left." Astra tells the weapons specialist. He nods and they split up.

Rounding a corner Astra finds herself in a circular room with a power generator in the middle. She turns around startled to see the door close behind her with the drones still out in the corridor. She is trapped alone in the room.
Ducking and spinning around she dodges a stunner bolt. Hissing she faces her opponent. One of the enemies had jumped down behind her from the ceiling and snarls at her.
Astra thinks: "How could I not have noticed him? Am I so blind and deaf and mind-numb? Luckily it's only the one of them."
She tries to force him into submission with her mind but to no visible effect. Instead he begins to laugh at her. "Silly female. In here you can't dominate me. We have found a way to block out all telepathy. That was our aim and we succeeded. We will no longer be ruled by queens."

They circle each other cautiously, no one wanting to make the first move. Astra then tries to catch him by surprise and they engage in combat. Her opponent is a cunning fighter and manages to push her off balance. She hits the floor and can see his feeding hand speeding towards her chest. A stunner blast hits her opponent. He turns around to see the weapons specialist fire another stunner blast which finally paralyses him.
Astra gets up. "You have saved my life. Thank you."
The weapons specialist watches her and answers "You have saved my life. Now we are even."
Astra: "You will receive a promotion and you may call me Astra from now on."
He bows "My name is Deimos, Astra."
Astra thinks that will make things way easier to have a name for him instead of a job description. (:D)

They examine the power generator and find indeed a ZPM. The last enemy Wraith had surrendered and both will be held hostage. They leave the facility and return to the hive which has already arrived.

Twenty Four Hours Later:

*Maggie walked through the hallways of Atlantis, very fascinated by what she saw, it was indeed a big and great city*
*She had awokened from her coma just a few hours ago after having been injured on an offworld mission, once she awoke she hadnt remembered anything from her life before*
*At least, that was what Colonel Sheppard had told her*
*She continued towards the Infirmary... to get her daily injection*
*Doctor Keller had told her that she had an ilness and needed daily injections, but off course... Maggie didnt remember anything of this*
*And so she continued towards the Infirmary...*

Ten Hours Later... at night

"Huuuhh!", Maggie screamed as she awoke in her bed*
*She had had that horrible dream again*
*About her being the queen of a Wraith hive... and walking through long corridors...*
*And so she took the sleeping pills Doctor Keller had given her... and fell asleep again*


NOTE:

I think you can all guess that this is queen Inga! :D

And this NEW retrovirus is not the OLD one... Keller modified the old one (Becketts) so that it would also work for females. :)

*Kal'shath screamed in definece in her cell. Why haddn't it worked?! when she had awoken she found herself strapped to a table in a large room. The most of the white-coats standing around had fled, but one had stayed and injected hert with something.*
*Then she had woken up again, with puncture marks dotting her arms and no longer able to sense Queen Inga's mind*

"So why can't you do to this one what you did to the other female?"
*that voice, it was Sheppard and there is another with him*
"Because we had to use her body to catylase the retro-virus. That measn she's compleastly immune to the retro-virus."

*Kal'shath sank to the floor, the suddne realisation of what had happened sinking in. She had heard of the failed Lantian experimnt known as Micheal. She put her face in her hands.*
"Forgive me, my Queen" she said softly, "I will avange you."

*The Chief Scientist returns from his journey and informs the Commander that he has discovered that Todd had nothing to do with the kidnaping. Todd informed him that the Atlantians have been working on a way to change all Wraith into humans. The Chief Scientist hacked into Todd's computer and discovered the location of Atlantis. When he is told about the ZPM he is elated. With a ZPM we will be able to stand up to Atlantis herself. Unfortunately it will take a while to interface the ZPM with the hive. Thinking on his feet he comes up with a plan. Since it will take a long time to interface the ZPM with the entire ship he and Astra (since Deimos is a weapons expert) will focus on interfacing the ZPM with the hull only. Once the modifications are complete we will use a transport to approach Atlantis. It will then drop out of hyperspace inside Atlantis' shield. Unfortunately the transport itself will be unable to slow down fast enough and it will fly outside the shield. Just as it exists hyperspace it will detach a single dart that was connected to it. As the transport re-enters hyperspace the dart will fly around Atlantis, detect Queen Inga and Kal'shath, and beam them into the buffer. At that point our hive will drop out of hyperspace in the atmosphere above Atlantis and the dart will retreat to the dart bay. Atlantis will be too busy with the hive to target the dart and with the ZPM the hull will hold for the time it takes to receive the dart and enter hyperspace. He then waits for the Commander to give his approval.*

Note to wraith queen inga: Astra or myself will declare the modifications complete when you want us to come rescue you.

Name: Ben to any humans, Dart Commander to the Wraith (Probably better to have me as the Dart Commander to avoid overstepping roles between myself and Rasunda).
Rank: Commander
Description: Tall, face covered with Tattoos, no hair bald bony head. His eyes glow when he is angry or agitated, competent pilot.
Background: Once commanding his own Hive during the great siege of Atlantis, today he is a mere shadow of his former existence. His Hive and much of its crew were lost during the great siege, he escaped aboard a cruiser with a few select members of his crew. When his crew slept aboard their cruiser they were not in danger, but 10,000 years to the present, much had changed. The Wraith food supply was not replenished, a keeper had awoken all of the Wraith in hopes of a new rich feeding ground but when such a feeding ground was not located the in fighting was inevitable.
An alliance of Hive's bore down on Ben's cruiser causing irreparable damage, they barely made it to hyperspace only to emerge right near another Hive. His crew was fed upon by the Wraith but he was brought before the Queen who offered him a place aboard her Hive. Not completely loyal to the Queen, though he still serves under her command to this day.

((Any problems with this let me know, told you I would do it eventually!!!))

*kal'shath has no idea how long she has been in this cell, or how long they intend to keep her. Her hunger grows and there is no way she can quench it.*
*Without the mind of her Queen, she feels lost and confused.*
"maybe I'm going mad," kal'shath muses, "It's not like its the first time."

The Dart Commanders pod opened, he had awoken late. Or someone had simply forgotten to wake him, he immediately stormed to the bridge, his mental link tingling with the information that his Darts had been sent into battle without his guidance.

Immediately he confronts the Hive Commander, standing up in his face his hot moist breath poured directly onto his equals face. "Why did you fail to wake me? Why were my Darts sent into battle without me?" He snapped. Shoving the Commander against the rear wall of the Hive and holding him there with his right arm "I was brought onto this ship for one reason only. I never overstep my bounds with you but perhaps I should begin to!" He snapped before storming off the bridge.

He proceeded directly to the Dart command array to the rear of the ship to assess how many Darts, or his skilled Dart pilots were lost in the clumsy assault on the facility.

Deimos: "Excuse my bold question but what can I do to help you? I am not specifically a scientist. At least not in the field of expertise you need."
Astra smiles: "Your promotion includes being my personal assistant. You will learn how to modify a hiveship's hull and you can figure out a way to connect the ZPM to the ship's weapons later on. That is, if you accept the promotion."
He wouldn't need to answer Astra thinks. He is broadcasting telepathic well-being on all mental frequencies. A glint of amusement appears in her eyes as Deimos simply bows and says "I accept, mistress."

They are now ready to be taken to the outpost.

Note:
The Chief Scientist is offline. Maybe we should leave him on the hive and he instructs us via radio. When he gets online he can still take a dart and jump over to the outpost. ;)

He is working as hard as he can. He will not lose the Queen and Kal'shath to the Atlantians. His face is covered in pure determination. Soon his plan to rescue them can commence.*

Note to Rasunda: Just a reminder. This is our plan to rescue them when wraith queen inga gives the word:


Once the modifications are complete we will use a transport to approach Atlantis. It will then drop out of hyperspace inside Atlantis' shield. Unfortunately the transport itself will be unable to slow down fast enough and it will fly outside the shield. Just as it exists hyperspace it will detach a single dart that was connected to it. As the transport re-enters hyperspace the dart will fly around Atlantis, detect Queen Inga and Kal'shath, and beam them into the buffer. At that point our hive will drop out of hyperspace in the atmosphere above Atlantis and the dart will retreat to the dart bay. Atlantis will be too busy with the hive to target the dart and with the ZPM the hull will hold for the time it takes to receive the dart and enter hyperspace.

Finding the Chief Scientist he snapped "And to what end does our great Commander intend to use this device?"

With it we can rescue Queen Inga and Kal'shath and insure our dominance over the galaxy.

Outpost laboratory. Astra and Deimos are still working with the central computer. Astra stands at the terminal with Deimos looking over her shoulder.

ASTRA: "This parameter defines the thickness of the outer hull while this one (she points on a figure on the screen) defines the rigidity. When we succeeded in routing the ZPM's power output into the hull's power circuit we can increase both thickness and rigidity for about 50% without loosing the necessary flexibility. And we would still have large energy reserves in the ZPM."

DEIMOS: "That is truly astonishing. I have heard of the properties of ZPMs but I would not have thought them that powerful. Is everything alright?"

ASTRA (rubs a hand across her face): "It is nothing. I am a bit tired."

DEIMOS: "We are all working hard to save your Queen and Keeper. Maybe you should rest a bit. You can only serve them if you feel rested and confident."

ASTRA: "I cannot rest. I am obliged to keep on working. Queen Inga took me into her hive when I had nowhere to go to. Kal'shath befriended me when I was alone."

DEIMOS: "I can understand your motives. I know how it feels to be lonely and abandoned, believe me. And of course we all need to do our best but please accept my advice and get some rest. I can proceed with the necessary calculations. You have instructed me sufficiently."

Astra sees reason and decides it was best if she really rested for a short while. She moves aside to give him access to the computer terminal. As he takes a step forward his hand brushes against her own hand by accident. Or was it no accident? Astra wonders. She feels he is genuinely concerned for her well-being. He should apologise for touching me. No male is allowed to touch a female just like that. Yet he seems to not have noticed. Astra is puzzled. Maybe I am imagining things because I am too strained. She hisses just to make a point who is in charge here. He looks up and eyes her calmly which only unsettles her even more.

DEIMOS: "Is there anything wrong, my mistress?"

ASTRA (turning away): "No. My imagination must have played a trick on me. I will go now. Let me know when those calculations are finished so we can go to the next stage of the hull development."
Astra leaves to get some rest.

The reason the Lantians can't find me is becasue I am hiding in a section of the city that has flood damage so the internal sensers are down. I do not know this, but it won't take the Lantians long to work out where I'm hiding.

Astra reports to commander:
"The transport to carry the dart is ready to be detached. We need to drop out of hyperspace to send it on it's way."

A hyperspace window opens up and releases the hiveship into space. The flight deck bay door opens and the transport leaves the hiveship following it's pre-programmed course. The transport opens a new hyperspace window and heads for Atlantis.
The hiveship resumes its own hyperspace travel.

Astra is reading the transport's status data on her computer screen.
"Everything is going according to plan. The transport will drop out of hyperspace so that it will dispatch the dart within the shield."
She turns around to face the Chief Scientist and Deimos.
"Now all we can do is wait and hope that the Lantians will fall for our distraction. We have prepared the ship for battle."

The ship shakes as it takes damage from the drones. Astra keeps monitoring the hull parameter displays.

ASTRA: "Hull is taking minor damage but is holding. The drones will not be enough to cause a hull breach."
She allows herself a little smile. The hard work finally pays off. She hopes the dart's pilot would be able to locate her Queen and Keeper fast enough and would make it safe back to the ship. Then she could really celebrate.

DEIMOS: "Weapons power at maximum. You can keep firing until next week and there will still be energy left."
He is smug and confident that they will succeed. He glances over at Astra and notices her smile.

Another drone hits the ship in close distance and the room shakes, nearly causing them to fall down. They steady themselves and await the dart's return.

ASTRA: "Negative, commander. We get no readings for any other Wraith on Atlantis. The dart has to return NOW."

She turns to face Deimos with a despaired expression on her face. He simply shakes his head slowly to confirm that he has no lifesign on his screens either.

*The Chief Scientist looks over the life signs scanner in dismay. "They have killed her," he thinks. Instantly his mind becomes filled with rage. He wants the hive to remain and blast Atlantis out of existance, but he realizes that it is only a matter of time before more ships arrive and attack the hive. With pain in his voice he gives the go ahead for the dart to return. The Chief Scientist then closes his eyes and sends a message to Teyla. "No matter how long it takes or how much it costs I will destroy all the Atlantians, starting with your people (the Athosians). You will pay for what you have done." The dart then returns and the hive flies into hyperspace.*

Astra struggles to keep her composure. Her Queen is no longer. Numbly she realises the Chief Scientist is giving orders and is sending a telepathic message to the Athosian woman. She thinks he has spoken well. They will need to find out where the Athosians have their settlements.

What will we do now? I hope Kal'shath is healthy and ready to take over the command of the hive. she thinks. She tries to contact Kal'shath with her mind but the Keeper seems to be too weak to respond. She senses great concern throughout the hive. The news has already spread.

ASTRA: "You don't need me at the moment. I will go and see Kal'shath. Maybe I can do something for her to help her get better."

She nods to the Chief Scientist and Deimos and leaves.

EDIT: Shortly afterwards she joins the commander and Kal'shath in the dart bay.

*Kal'shath's mind isn't clearing. In fact, now she is hullisinating on top of her crippling hunger and exahstion. She can see the hive ship all around her, but she cna't be on a hive. She is just trapped in the city of Atalntis and they are filling her system with yet more chemicals and her mind is merely trying to defend itself against the horror of it.*
*She can feel a mind brushing her's attempting to assertain her condition, but she lashes out mentally. She will not be caught the same way twice.*
*Another mind contacts her's. She recognizes that mind. Astra. How could Astra conntact her mind unless....*

"Thank you...my friend" she croakes.
*She tries to stand, but Astra forces her to remain on the ground. Kal'shath turns to the commander.*
"The lantian known as Sheppard killed Queen Inga," she said weakly, "but not before thay had contaminated her, transforming her into a human."

*Feeling stronger, she rises and this time Astra doesn't stop her.*
"We are now without a Queen," she says with all the strangth she can muster in order to hide how tierd she is, "We are vuerable to a takeover by a rival Hive. This we cannot let happen."

Draco-Stellaris
March 4th, 2009, 03:46 AM
Deimos is alone in the control room since the Chief Scientist and Astra have both left.
I'm in charge now. I've only been a few days on this hive and I'm already responsible for maintenance and the ZPM research. A smug grin spreads across his face. He is a leader and he likes to be in charge.
He isn't concerned about loosing Queen Inga. He didn't get to know her so he feels no personal grief. All that matters to him is that there is a queen present whatever her name may be.

He has seen many queens and many hives in his life, had even held the command of a hiveship once before it fell prey to the attack of another hive. That was the day he was marooned on that star-forsaken planet. The enemy ship had dropped out of hyperspace and launched a full attack the same instant. He barely made it to the dart bay and took off only to be shot down by enemy fire. He thinks of the uncounted years he has spent alone on the planet living like an animal in the woods constantly avoiding to be found by the humans. Unconsciously he growls at the thought.

He thinks of how Astra had appeared and saved him. He could never repay her properly for that. He finds he misses her, standing beside him and explaining the finer points of hull regeneration. She was smart and attractive and they worked good together. He likes her and entertains certain thoughts which involve undressing her.

He is not deluding himself in thinking she might fall in love with him. Love is just an empty word invented by the humans for a short-termed lunacy. No one can be in love for a thousand years or even a century. For a Wraith it is desirable to forge reliable friendships that last much longer than love. Both of them were experienced enough to be realistic about that.

For now he simply would keep signaling her that he was interested in her. There was little he could do though. As a female she was superior and he had to be very careful until he knew how she felt for him. Take one wrong step and you're dead.

A blinking light on the terminal demands his attention. No. That can't be. The ZPM's energy level drops. It's power is being drained. But how? Where to. It can't just vanish. He shuts down the systems which provide the ship with ZPM energy switching back to normal power supply. He runs a diagnostic of the whole ship and finds an extremely high energy level in the hyperdrive. The ZPM's energy had rewired itself there and nearly caused a fatal overload. We shouldn't use the ZPM further. It's too dangerous. The organic nature of our ships forbid it in long terms. He sends Astra and the Chief Scientist a telepathic message explaining what had happend.

NOTE: Just throwing this idea at random into discussion: We shouldn't keep using the ZPM because it would get really boooooring to have an invincible, powerful uber-hiveship that is never really in danger. Should the need arise we can still plug it back in. Any thoughts or suggestions? :)

Dr. Daedalus
March 4th, 2009, 04:49 AM
*The Chief Scientist rushes to Deimos' aide. He can see that much more needs to be worked out before we can permanently use the ZPM. He gives the order to unplug it.*

Note to Draco: I agree with you. Lets say that without massive changes (that will take about a year sitting still) to the hiveship's power system the ZPM cannot be used for more than 5 minutes.

She tells the Chief Scientist and Deimos of her promotion and is delighted to accept their congratulations. She senses the Chief Scientist's disappointment and concern that she may not be able to help in the lab like she has done. She is very pleased that he has such a high opinion of her.

ASTRA: "The queen knows that my place is with you two working on the many projects which will hopefully improve all our lives. It is no contradiction for a Keeper to work on the maintenance of her ship in a lab. I have - of course - many more duties now and I will have to leave you more often. As happy as I am for being a Keeper again I want you to know that this is a downside for me as well as it is for you."

I will go now and check the inventory of supplies and status reports of the vital systems of the ships."

"Becasue of theri actions I developed an immunity to the retrovirus, but they continued to experiment, most likly trying to-"

Astra senses the approach of the queen and notices a change in the mind patterns of her friend. Where there was anxiety and despair there is now something different. Something Astra can't fathom. A fluttering kind of joy she has never sensed before in anyone. Very curious she opens the door even before Kal'shath has the chance to use the chime.

Her friend was so deep in her own thoughts that she is surprised when the door opens and takes a nervous step back.

KAL'SHATH: "Astra, I have astonishing and joyful news. After all the despair and sadness there is something wonderful about to happen."

ASTRA: "Please come in and tell me everything. I am sure grateful for every good news."

Kal'shath enters Astra's vast quarters. The interieur is very spartanic but cosy. Astra motions to her friend to take a seat but Kal'shath is so agitated that she prefers to keep standing upright.

KAL'SHATH (walks around and turns to Astra suddenly): "I carry a child. I will bring a new life to this hive soon."

Astra is stunned. So that's the reason for the queen's joy. She starts to smile.
ASTRA (gets up from her seat again): "My friend. That is the best news of all possible news. You not only carry a child, you carry hope within you."

She walks over to Kal'shath and even before she knows what she is doing she embraces her friend. An action for that she could be severely punished by any other queen but Kal'shath hugs her back and they both share a moment of happiness between good friends.

Astra (smiles insinuatingly): "Would you tell me who the father is? Or did I insult you by asking? I can understand if you want to keep it secret but I would be delighted if you trusted me with the answer."

*Kal'shath's joy fades as she realises that she does not know herself. Astra must have sensed her sudden change in mood becasue she starts to look concerned.*
"My friend," she says, "Is there something the matter. If I offended you by asking-"
"I am not offended." Kal'shath reasures her, a weak and nervous smile quivering on her lips, "I merely realised that I too do not know the father of my child"
*Astra's shocked expression at the news does nothing to dispel Kal'shath's worry.*

Astra takes a moment to regain her composure. There was nothing objectionable about that confession so she shouldn't be shocked. Any female could choose whomever she liked to any given time. That was their privilege. Most females however chose to live in monogamy for some time when they wanted to reproduce to make sure their offspring would come from the partner they had deemed worthy.

Astra was sure however that any male who was chosen by Kal'shath would be worthy so in the end it didn't really matter. But she was still curious and she just had to ask the question. If only to see what kind of taste her friend had.

ASTRA: "Well, who could it be corresponding to the time table?"

KAL'SHATH (still agitated): "It could be either the Dart Commander or the Chief Scientist."
Kal'shath shields her mind quickly because she didn't mention the third candidate: the Wraith Commander called Todd. That had to be her secret. She had even killed another Wraith for making sure no one would be able to trace a connection between the two of them. That her millenia-old secret would be kept. When he came on board the last time she had gotten weak. She wouldn't tell anyone, not even Astra.

Astra notices a flicker in Kal'shath's eyes as if she was hiding something but she didn't inquire further. After all it was obvious that the conversation was embarassing for her friend.
ASTRA: "I am a bit surprised by your choice. Don't misunderstand me. They are both magnificent but it's just they are completely different from each other."

Kal'shath tries to get the conversation away from her and asks Astra instead.
KAL'SHATH: "Did you ever think of taking a mate for some time? I wonder whom you would fancy."

ASTRA (blushes slightly): "I am thinking about that for some time now and I have laid my eye upon someone but it's too early still. As long as I'm not sure I would like to keep it a secret."

KAL'SHATH: "Of course. Everyone needs the odd secret. If you have chosen him we will all see early enough who it is. I will leave you now. I'd like to be alone for a while."

ASTRA: "Certainly. You will need rest now after the excitement. Thank you for bringing me this wonderful news."

Kal'shath nods and leaves.

*Kal'shath wanders back to her quaters, her mind now racing. If Todd truly was the fatehr that would make life very difficult. Wraith parents had a natural telepathic link to their off-spring so her secret would soon be discovered. She had to find a way of speaking with him wthout drawing attention to the fact.*
*As she reaches her door, she realises she has the perfect solution. Todd offered Inga control of his Wraith alliance and she accepted, making her the Primary. No doubt, he had not yet learned of ehr death, which would leave the Alliance on shaky ground... unless a new Priamary could be found.*
*Turning on her heels, she marched off to the command deck to discuss her idea with the Commander. He wouldn't need the full details, just nough to take her to Todd.*

The door opens and Deimos comes in. He sees Astra and bows slightly.

DEIMOS: "I am pleased to see you here. I had feared you couldn't come to the lab today, mistress."

ASTRA: "I needed to come here. I couldn't get any sleep last night. I was so restless I decided to see to the ship's inventory first and then come straight to the lab."

DEIMOS (takes a step closer): "I hope the reason for your restlessness was nothing worrisome."

Astra is still standing in front of the computer terminal. She wants to share the good news.
ASTRA: "No, nothing worrisome." (she smiles) "In fact it was because of wonderful news. Our queen came to visit me last night and she told me she is expecting a child."

Deimos can see Astra is hapy for the queen. It's a female thing. I don't think I will ever understand that fully. He had never cared about having children. His relationships had always been a bit distanced. He can't share the full extent of her joy but of course he sees the benefit for the hive. And he admires Astra's smile as she talks to him now in such a good mood. He takes a daring step closer until he stands right in front of her.
DEIMOS: "That is indeed very good news. Especially when it makes you happy. I can sense your delight and I like to see you smile, Astra."
He might just have crossed a line there. No turning back now. He waits for her reaction as she just stands there and looks up to him, still smiling.

*kal'shath senses Astra's sudden distress from the corridor. AS queen of the hive, she has a duty to protect her people. She enters the room and sees a strange wraith that she does not know standing before Astra*
"not intereupting anything am I?" she says plesantly, but there are hidden daggers in her words. "Would you care to introduce us, Astra. I do not belive I have met your friend before"
*Kal'shath stares at the wraith and matches his gaze as he glares at her*

Draco-Stellaris
March 7th, 2009, 06:25 AM
Astra is shocked. She was so tangled in her own thoughts and emotions she didn't notice Kal'shath's approach. Looking up at Deimos she knows instantly he hadn't sensed it either. He looked shocked but caught himself fast and his expression turned to angry. His upper lip curls into a snarl he turns around. The intruder is a female so he readjusts his face again and attempts to look submissive but isn't quite able to stop glaring at her.

Astra has recovered from her shock enough to step forward to greet Kal'shath.
ASTRA (nervously): "My queen. Of course. I forgot. How stupid of me. You haven't met Deimos yet. We rescued him from a remote planet while we were searching for you and queen Inga. He is a weapons specialist but also very apt with our fields of research. He helped us to obtain the ZPM and saved my life. He has proven he is a valuable crew member and he is therefore my personal assistant as well. I hope you approve of the decisions we made during your absence."
Astra turns around to Deimos.
ASTRA: "Deimos, greet our Queen Kal'shath."

Deimos bows. Nice. What a good start for meeting the queen the first time. I wonder what she will be thinking of me.
DEIMOS: "My queen. My apologies. I should have introduced myself but it seemed to me that you needed not to be disturbed for some time while you were recovering from your capture and sorting out the command for the ship."

*Deimos bows before leaving, glancing back at Astra. Kal'shath notices Astra's involentery shudder at his gaze. When the door has closed, Kal'shath turns to Astra*
"you need not pretend," she sighed, "I sensed your distrss form the corridor. Are you alright?"
"Is this what you wanted to talk me about?" asked Astra nervously.
"No," replied Kal'shath with a smile, "but that can wait. Does this Deimos upset you, Astra?"
*Astra chewed her lip before replying*

How could she possibly confess what made her uneasy. It was embarassing down to the core.
ASTRA:"If I seemed distressed then it must have been because I was surprised when I turned around and nearly ran into Deimos. I was distracted and deep in thought so I didn't notice he was walking by behind me. You don't need to distrust him. He is loyal and would never cause any harm to me."

Kal'shath knows Astra is lying in her face but she refrains herself from probing Astra's mind for the truth. She knows Astra would never betray her or the hive.

"How do we not know that you killed her yourself to gain control?" hissed one of the subordinate commanders.

"That is why I wished you all to come here," Kal'shath continued, secreatly plaesed that Todd had stood up for her, "So that you may know your new Queen, and I may know you. I also wished to honour inga and her life. I can never hope to match her, but I will defend this hive with every fiber of my being."

*Todd hang back as the others left. The Commander glared, but Kal'shath dismissed him with a wave. Soon they were alone. But Astra remained hiden in the shadows.*
"I am sorry to hear about your Queen," said Todd, "but I bealieve you have made the right desicion to take her place. the offer I made to her is also open to you."
"Do you not want to hear how Inga died?" asked Kal'shath
*She recounted what had happened to both her and Inga on Atlantis. Todd looked genuinly shocked.*
"And the child is-" he stopped when he saw Kal'shath's stony glare, "Ah, well at least that matter has been resolved."
*Kal'shath understood what he meant. If he could sense her unborn offspring before the rest of her hive, it meant that there was a link between the two.*
*Todd held out a hand graciously to her*
"Shall we join the others, my beloved Queen?" he said, a wicked twinkle in his eye.
"I am not your beloved anything." snapped Kal'shath, but she accepted his hand as she rose from the throne.
*Together they walked out, still unaware of the figure hiddne in the shadows who had over heard everything, not to mention sensed their feelings and thoughts for each other.*

Astra watches as the both of them leave. She is paralysed and just stands there for a long moment thinking over what she just had experienced.
So Kal'shath has lied to me. No, not lied as such but she didn't tell me about Todd. Why does she not want anybody to know who the father of her child is? What kind of secret is that?
She frowns. I am the right one to complain about being lied to. I didn't tell Kal'shath the truth about Deimos and me. In hindsight I overreacted. I could have confided to her at least that I feel attracted to him. My embarassing secret would still have been safe.
Making sure no one is near her she leaves her hiding place and makes her way towards the meeting.

*Kal'shath mingles with the 'guests'. Everyone seems downcast and downhearted. One of the commanders approches her, his eyes filled with hatred*
"I just learnt that you were captured along with Inga. How is it that you survived while she died?!"

*Kal'shath doesn't get a chance to explain before the snarling commander back-hands her and sends her crashing to the floor. She is dazed from the blow, but her thoughs immideatly turn to her unborn child. She fears that the fall may have done some damage.*
*The memebers of her hive, incuding the commander and Astra, and even Todd draw concealed weapons. The other wraith preasent do the same.*
*they all square up for a fight*

Astra moves cautiously over to Kal'shath, dagger in her hand, not taking her eyes off the aggressive commander who had dared hurt her queen.
Astra bends down to Kal'shath and whispers
"My queen, you must get up at all costs. He must see you are not weak. I will see to it Dr. Helion will come here at once but now you must get up."

"My queen, you must get up at all costs. He must see you are not weak. I will see to it Dr. Helion will come here at once but now you must get up."

*Kal'shath shakes with rage as she rises from the floor. With a snarl, she snatches the dagger from Astra's hand and attacks the commander that attacked her. She slashes him twice on the face before holding the knife close to his throat.*
"Let all know you as a ge'tharak, an attacker of Queens." she hissed, "Take him out of my sight before I dishonour the respect Inga had for this filth and feed on him!"
*Two drones escourted the disgraced commander away. The others remain unsure what to do. Kal'shath does not care for their opnions of her at that moment, she cares only for her offspring.*
*she turns on her heel and strides from the room, heading towards the infermary as fast as dignity will allow her*

March 12th, 2009, 01:22 PM
Astra is unsure what to do next. She has the urge to follow Kal'shath to see to it she gets safely to Dr. Helion. She sends a telepathic message to the doctor ordering him to get to his queen right now. Astra decides to stay in the room and de-escalate the situation as is her duty as Keeper. She stands up straight and confronts the remaining commanders. Glaring at them she hisses loudly.
ASTRA: Is there anyone else among you who dares to cast doubts on our queen? Step forward now. I will show you that no one on this hive doubts the queen's resolution to bring vengeance upon the Lanteans for killing Queen Inga and you will follow her lead.

The remaining commanders look indecisive. Suddenly Todd steps beside Astra and says "My hive will follow Kal'shath. Anyone who is against her is against me."

ASTRA: You will all confirm our alliance now or you will leave this ship at once.

One after the other the commanders bow down with the exception of one who simply glares back at Astra and heads for the door. Astra feels an telepathic rush of uncontrolled fury. She tries to locate the source of it and finds... Deimos. He has still a dagger in his hand and stares after the defiant commander who is leaving for the dart bay. Astra decides she will ask Deimos about that commander. Maybe he is more dangerous than we thought. It wasn't a good idea to make him our enemy, I'm sure. But after all it was his decision.

*Kal'shath senses Dr helion approching her before she reaches the infermary. She is glad to see him and he gently leads her to her quaters.*
*As they reach her quaters, Kl'shath feels that she must be honost with Astra and sends her a mental summons Dr Helion beguins his examination*

March 12th, 2009, 01:38 PM
Astra announces that she has been ordered to go to the queen and she walks to the door. She glances at Deimos who has closed his mind off again but still looks very upset and deep in thought. She sends him a telepathic message she needs to talk to him as soon as she gets back from the queen. He snaps out of his thoughts and just nods at her.

Astra restains herself from running but as soon as she has left the room and rounded a corner into the next corridor she accelerates and arrives at the infirmary at a full run. She comes into the room to see Kal'shath lying on a bed and Dr. Helion holding an ultrasonic device over her belly.

*She, Dr Helion and Astra race into the corridor and head towards the dart bay. Suddenly, a dart's transportation beam breaches them ship and scoops up the three of them.*

Astra has a terrible headache and when she opens her eyes he has no idea where she is. Focussing her sight she takes in her surroundings and finds she is in a cell and she is alone. Then her memory comes back to her and she remembers the hive being under attack, the culling beam, whiteness around her, then blackness...

And now she is on an enemy hiveship. On her own. She doesn't know where Kal'shath and Dr. Helion are or whatever happened to her hive. Her friends. Deimos.

She concentrates and sends her mind out to find her friends. She receives a weak signal from Kal'shath's consciousness. She is alive but dizzy. Astra is relieved but a bit worried because she can't pick up any sign of Dr. Helion or her hive.

She gets up when she hears footsteps approaching. She hisses angrily as her capturers come closer to the cell.

*right after I said "take us out" I run towards the dart bay and I meat Deimos and the 2 of us races towards the dart bay. I took a dart and he took another dart, after that I don't know anything. I scand after him but nothing. I notice that it's something in the torage, it's the ZPM, I now remember that we had it transported to a dart, for saftey detals.

As soon as the renegade commander was out of the door Deimos knew there would be trouble. He still couldn't believe it. He would not have thought to meet that vicious traitor again in his life. All he wanted to do was run after him, strike him down, kill him.

Astra's telepathic message had brought him back to reality. He mustn't attack but he urgently needed to warn the queen. That commander would stab them in the back as soon as he got the chance.

He watched Astra leave the room and heard the commander called Todd excuse himself for leaving. Todd went to the dart bay and left the hive. So did the other commanders.

Deimos had headed back to his quarters when suddenly the ship shook and he nearly fell down. He saw his commander running towards him yelling "Abandon ship!"
Both ran to dart bay and escaped the destruction of the ship.

This is just so grand. Somehow I'm having the most unpleasant dιjΰ-vu.
Deimos watched the commander attach his dart to the enemy's hull and followed his example. That commander is a resourceful guy.

He used the modified culling beam to beam himself on board. He hides in the shadows and shields his mind as a patrol of two drones walks by. Since I am here now I can make myself useful by getting rid of that traitor once and for all.

He wants revenge for the loss of his own hive, for the uncounted years he had spent marooned and abandoned. And for the loss of his new hive as well. For Astra.
At the thought of her he senses a familiar presence. He shakes his head in disbelief. That can't be, can it? She was in the infirmary with the queen and the doctor. They could never have made it to the dart bay in time.

Cautiously he sends out his mind and finds the presence of his own commander, even Kal'shath and finally Astra. Her presence is a faint beacon in his mind. She seems to be unconscious. He goes in the direction where his own commander should be. They needed to make a plan together.

*Kal'shath rises from the bed. She has managed to make contact with Astra, Demios and the commander. At least they survived.*
*The door opened and Kal'shath hissed as Todd stepped into the rooom. He raised his hands*
"Do not fear, you are safe. As are several members of your hive, as you have already discovered."
*he made her sit back down on the bed, before sititng beside her.*
"I am not going to lose another Priamary so soon after the last one."
"Where are my people?" hissed kal'shath.
"Scattered around my ship at presant," chucled Todd, "I will have the found and brought to you in hte throne room. In the mantime, you should get some rest."
*Todd left. Kal'shath decided that since she had nothing better to do, she would follow Todd's advise. She lay down on the bed and slept*

Astra stood up straight in her cell and watched a male Wraith and two drones approach the cell. She hisses.

ASTRA: How dare you imprison me? What do you want? Let me go at once!

The unknown Wraith answers her "Your mind was disturbed by your panic and the beaming. You were putting up a fight so for our safety and your own we decided to confine you temporarily until you were lucid enough to see reason. You may come with us to see the commander now but be warned. You should not consider fighting us. We mean you no harm."

The door of the cell opens and Astra strides out, head held high. She glares at the strange Wraith. She would try to get into his mind but she couldn't control him and the drones at once. She decides to play along for the time being.

All three walk down a corridor, first the male, then Astra followed by the drones. Her eyes open wide when she senses two familiar presences very near. Her heartbeat quickens and she prepares herself for fighting. Without a warning her commander and Deimos jump out from their hiding places and Astra reacts fast, snatching a stunner from one of the drones. The unknown Wraith and the drones lie stunned on the floor as Astra turns to her rescuers. She nods to the commander. "Commander, I am relieved to see you alive and even more relieved you saved me." Then she turns to Deimos. What can I say? I thought he was dead. I thought I was dead! I can't think of any words that are appropriate and strong enough to express my relief. Ah! What the heck! Who needs words anyway. She walks up to him and to his amazement she hugs him, mentally allowing him to catch a glimpse of her feelings. Tentatively he lifts his arms and hugs her gently back. The commander turns away, grinning slightly.

Astra pulls back and states "We should not linger any longer here. There will soon come patrols to search for me. Let us find a safe place to think over our situation."

Just then they receive a telepathic message from the Chief Scientist. He escaped in a transport and is now shadowing the hive that they are in. He needs their help to disable the ship's sensors so that he can come aboard.

They are all relieved to hear the Chief Scientist made it safely out of their hive. They sneak to the nearest computer terminal, avoiding several drones. Astra sets to work on the terminal while the commander and Deimos stand guard. Astra sends a telepathic message to the Chief Scientist

I've disabled all outer sensors on the ship's stern. You should be able to reach the starboard auxiliary flight bay. We will take care of the guards there. All should be clear within the next half hour.

She receives a affirmation from the Chief Scientist and the three of them make their way to the flight bay. They stop dead shocked as a shrill alarm begins to sound. Apparently Astra's flight has been discoverd. Deimos says "We must make haste now. This place will be crawling with drones in a few moments."

Throwing stealthiness away they run towards the flight bay, shooting their stunners at the already approaching drones who suddenly appear all around them. They round a corner and come to an abrupt halt. Seven drones and two male Wraith are waiting for them, pointing their stunners at them. One of the males starts to speak "I suggest you lower your weapons. You are outnumbered. We will take you to our commander now."

Glaring at their capturers the commander, Deimos and Astra put their stunners and their daggers to the ground.

The unknown male points to the left. "You will follow us in that direction now. Don't act stupid again or we my have to hurt you."

Astra hisses "As if you will spare us. You will hurt us anyway."

"That is the decision of our commander and of course - of our queen."
Something about the way the male emphathises the word queen makes Astra curious. The male walks past them and leads the way. He turns around half and says "By the way, you don't have to worry about your friend who is following us in a cruiser. He will get an appropriate reception committee and will join you soon."

As they walk towards the bridge to meet the commander Astra tries to contact Kal'shath again but her queen seems to be fast asleep. I hope she and her child are well. They enter the bridge where they see a big Wraith standing there with his back turned to them. The male who led them there nods towards the figure "Meet our commander." Said commander turns around and grins at them "You have given us quite some trouble, my friends. I'm glad you have found the time to visit me between your rescue parties." The three of them stare into the grinning face of - Todd.

March 16th, 2009, 03:40 AM
Kal'shath feels Todd's mind pricking at her senses, drawing her from sleep

"My apologise," he says mentally, "but we have just rounded up your crew and they are currently with me on the bridge. Join us if you wish, but if you would prefer to continue resting..."

"I'm coming," growled Kal'shath. She notices an new outfit that Todd must have left for her. It is the outfit of a wraith queen. All this time she has merely continued to wear her Keeper garb, out of habit. "You don't take no for an answer, do you?" she muttered as she changed.

As she walked to the bridge, the wraith of the hive bowed to her as she passed. I have a bad feeling about Todd's motives for rescuing us, she though to herself. She strod into the bridge at the same time teh Cheif Scientist was escourted in. The otehrs looked relived to see her. Todd walks up to her, taking her hand and bowing deeply.

"I am glad that you could join us, my Queen." He looks up into her eyes and she can see the glittering triumph in them. So this was his plan, she thought, to get a new queen for his hive. Lucky me.

Kal'shath looks to the remaing members of her hive, and they looked as shocked as she feels.

Draco-Stellaris
March 16th, 2009, 05:59 AM
Astra shivers. So we are now trapped on his ship. His ship which is now Kal'shath's ship. Wow.

Todd turns to them. "This must come as a surprise to all of you. Be assured you are welcome here. This hive is now yours as your queen has taken over. You probably want to rest yourselves a bit to recover from your shock until we have found new tasks for you on this ship."

Astra feels a sudden tiredness. Not again. Two hives lost. Two times my position as Keeper lost. She looks at Kal'shath and feels reassured. Her friend would see to it that her crew would get the best possible positions again. Astra glances over at Deimos who just stood there stoically, his face blank. I wonder how many hives he has lost. How many times did he have to work his way up again. He senses her interest and looks at her. She smiles and turns away slightly blushing. I hugged him... What now? She had never had let anyone come as near to her and she is unsure what to do next. This is just embarassing.

Her attention turns to Todd who asks Kal'shath if it is convenient for her if they set course to Atlantis. He still has dealings with the Lanteans. And a plan.

Draygon
March 16th, 2009, 06:16 AM
Todd is furious at the Lantians treachery. To use captured wraith for experimentation, not to mention using the female that carried his child was beyond redemption. He wanted a chance to make the Lantians realise the reprocussions of their actions, especially Sheppard.

"Why do you wnt to travel to Atlantis?" asked Kal'shath. Her distrust was understandable.

"I want them to realise the costs of their fool-hardy actions," he said, "The Lantians pride themselves at being morally supirior to other races. I want them to know that they have crossed a line by your treatment."

He can see Kal'shath wavering in this decision. It is clear that she would ratehr do anything than return to teh city where she was tourture but the prospect of revenge also appealse to her. Todd decides t oadd another insentive.

"If we are allowed access to the city," he suggests, "We may also be able to find a way to destroy all data on this aboniation that they have created."

"You think they will let us?" Kal'shath askes him sceptically.

Todd smilled at her. "I will find a way. Do I have you permission?" Kal'shat hnodded curtly. Todd's smile widened. "Then I shall set course for Atlantis. In the meantime, I'm sure you will wish to speak with your crew."

Kal'shath walks towards the others from her old hive. She leads them from the command deck towards some empty rooms, where they will not be disturbed or over-heard.

Todd then walks over and says to the drones that carried him in, "Is this any way to treat the new Chief Scientist of our hive?" Todd then shakes the Chief Scientist and he wakes up. He is just about to attack Todd when Kal'shath tells him telepathically to stand down. The Chief Scientist obeys and as he looks around the room he sees Astra. Astra tries to apologize to him (telepathically) but he will have nothing of it. "It is not your fault, Astra," he says. "You did your best." Then they both look at Todd waiting for him to explain what will happen next.*

Kal'shath decides that it is only fair that she attempts to explain what is going on. She leads Astra, the commander, Demios and the Cheif scientist out of the control room towards some empty rooms nearby. When they are all in, she tries to explain.

"Todd made me Queen of this hive. He wants to make the Lantians suffer for what they did to me and Inga." Demios and the commander looked pleased at the prospect of a fight, "He does not wish to fight them head on. We would be destroyed. instead he wants to make them suffer a differnt way."

"How, my queen?" asks Astra.

"Todd knows that they Lantian humans believe themselves to be morally superiour than all others, especially wraith. The notion that they would perform potentiolly dangerous experiments and starve a pregnant female would abhor them. Todd wishes them to learn the reropocutions of their actions."

The knowledge that Kal'shath carries a child appears to comes as a surprise to some. Kal'shath hcontinues.

"Todd believes that he knows a way to get us saftly into the city and leave again. That way we will also be able to destroy the information on the retrovirus."

She looks at her fellows from the old hiv, and hopes they approve.

Astra nods slowly. "It is long time the Lanteans learned their place in this galaxy. How dare they think they are superior? How dare they think they can abduct and torture us? I say let us show them what their twisted kind of ethic is worth."

Deimos simply nods and bows. "Yes, my queen."
He sends a thought to Astra. Although I suppose I have to be grateful to the Lanteans. They gave you a reason to scan the galaxy for lifesigns. Otherwise I would still be stuck on that planet or probably dead by now. I would not have met you.
Astra closes her eyes and makes sure no one listened in to this conversation. I'm very pleased we saved you. That is the one good thing that came from that action.

The other crew members nod their approval. Astra remembers that Kal'shath had wanted to tell her something before the ship blew up. She asks her if they could have a word in private after this meeting is finished.

Kal'shath senses the reason Astra wishes to talk alone. She owes her friend and Keeper the truth. As the others leave, Kal'shath speaks.

"I owe you... an apology I suppose," she says, downcast, "Do you rmember when you asked me about the father of my child? I was not entirly... honest with my answer. I was not certain before, but now I know for certain."

She looks at Astra with sorrowful eyes. "Let us just say that it was in Todd's best interest to rescue me before the hive was destroyed."

Kal'shath watches Astra. She hopes that she will understand her previous reluctances. She still needs allies aboard this hive, and cannot afford to isolate Astra from her.

There is a bright flash of light...

And Inga appears... naked and unconcious... on the floor just a few feet from Astra and Kal shath. The two (concious) Wraith females turn around. They stare at Ingas unconcious body on the floor for a moment... with pure shock in their eyes... unable to speak... And then... Kal shath faints from the shock.

Slowly comprehension spreads in Astra's mind.
"So Todd has a very personal interest in your child." She ponders the news for a moment, studying Kal'shath's tired expression. She then continues "I thank you for your honesty. I understand that you wanted to keep it a secret. If you wish to keep it that way I will tell it no one."

Kal'shath answers she has yet to decide whom she can trust with that knowledge. She feels exhausted and wants to rest. Astra senses her fatigue and suggest Kal'shath should rest for the sake of her child. Kal'shath says "I am relieved I have shared the secret with you. I should have done so earlier-" Astra interrupts her "No. You need not apologise. You had far more important matters on your mind. You got attacked, our hive destroyed and now we all need to make ourselves at home on a strange ship."

Kal'shath nods "You are right, Astra. Let us all hope Todd won't double-cross us." She turns to leave when Astra clears her throat and speaks again "Kal'shath." Kal'shath faces Astra again. Astra shifts her weight uneasily from one foot to the other and continues "I wasn't honest with you either. I... lied to you." Kal'shath's eyes narrow. Astra takes a step closer. "I lied to you when you asked me why I was upset about Deimos. The truth is I wasn't startled of running into him by accident. I was startled because he was trying to express his feelings for me."

Kal'shath inquires further "And you were upset about that because you felt threatened? You don't share his feelings? Shall I let him remove from the hive?"

Astra (shocked): "No! No, actually I do share his feelings. It's just I was surprised by his bold approach. It's so embarassing and you will laugh at me. I'm - not experienced."

Kal'shath nods "I won't tell anyone." She smiles "Now it is good to know we don't need to have secrets between us. We can trust each other."

Astra is relieved every unsolved matter heas been removed from their friendship. She bows "Then let us both rest now. This day was tiring."
Both leave for their quarters.

NOTE: Inga was too fast for me. Can we say she appears after my post? Pretty please?

Slowly comprehension spreads in Astra's mind.
"So Todd has a very personal interest in your child." She ponders the news for a moment, studying Kal'shath's tired expression. She then continues "I thank you for your honesty. I understand that you wanted to keep it a secret. If you wish to keep it that way I will tell it no one."

Kal'shath answers she has yet to decide whom she can trust with that knowledge. She feels exhausted and wants to rest. Astra senses her fatigue and suggest Kal'shath should rest for the sake of her child. Kal'shath says "I am relieved I have shared the secret with you. I should have done so earlier-" Astra interrupts her "No. You need not apologise. You had far more important matters on your mind. You got attacked, our hive destroyed and now we all need to make ourselves at home on a strange ship."

Kal'shath nods "You are right, Astra. Let us all hope Todd won't double-cross us." She turns to leave when Astra clears her throat and speaks again "Kal'shath." Kal'shath faces Astra again. Astra shifts her weight uneasily from one foot to the other and continues "I wasn't honest with you either. I... lied to you." Kal'shath's eyes narrow. Astra takes a step closer.

Astra looks at the two unconscious figures on the floor. Oh dear. What a day indeed...

She sends out a telepathic distress call I need help right now in the 3th deck meeting room. A doctor and someone to help carry Kal'shath and Inga to the infirmary!

Then she senses a sudden flash of murderous rage. And then- suddenly the presence ceases to exist. That was our commander, she thinks shocked. What has happened? Kneeling beside Kal'shath and Inga she clenches her fists. I am going to find out what's going on!

A few hours later:

Inga opens her eyes in the infirmary.

Todd and the entire crew have gathered there... staring at her. Some of them have sadness in their eyes... some have joy... some look VERY happy to see her back into life... and there are some who simply look clueless.
Todd: How?

Inga explains to the crew that Chaya ascended her (for "unknown" reasons) and that Inga insisted for days that she should return to her hive... and eventually Chaya let her... and now she was here... with her crew.

Inga: Where is Kal shath?

Todd: She is resting.

Inga: I will see her later... i think it is best if we let her rest at the moment.

Todd: I agree... you have no idea how overjoyed i am over your return.

Todd smiles.

Inga does not.

Inga: Yea, right... anyway, tell me the status of my hive.

Todd: Oh Dear... well you see... your hive... is...gone.

Inga looks confused... and Todd starts explaining the whole story.

Meanwhile:

Kal shath just wakes up in her part of the Infirmary... she immediately raises up from her bed and rushes away to find Inga... full of both joy and shock over her lost friends return.

Dr. Daedalus

"That is a terrible thing to happen! I would never have thought he would go crazy just like that. That just isn't him. He must have had a reason for his behaviour." Dr. Helion who had turned up again comes in and tends to Kal'shath and Inga. Astra and the Chief Scientist follow them to the infirmary.

Kal'shath is no longer certain what to do. Inga ahs returned from the dead. That will mean she will automatically retake her role as queen. Where would that leave her? Only the queen was offically allowed to breed, and others had to have her concent first.

What would that mean for her child?

She hides her distrss and fear under a mask of joy at Inga's return. Only one thought provides her comfort. Todd will not let anything happen to his child.

Won't he?

wraith queen inga
March 17th, 2009, 03:15 AM
Inga says that she wants to speak to Kal shath in private for a moment.
Once the other Wraith have left... she tells to Kal shath that she can remain as the Queen of The Hive... Inga also says that she will be leaving soon, anyway. She has "unfinished buisnes that has something with Chaya and the ascension" to do. After Kal shath has left... Inga is overwhelmed by sleep. She falls asleep with a warm smile... she was back with her friends... for the moment.

Draygon
March 17th, 2009, 03:56 AM
Kal'shath wonders the hive aimlessly. Everything seems to have happened at once. Her head is a mess of tangled thoughts. Suddenly, she feels a hand on her shoulder. She whips around snarling, only to come face-to-face with Todd.

"I have been trying to get your atttention," he said calmingly. He gently lead her to her quaters. "It does not do to have this hive's Queen to be wandering the hive. Especially in your condition."

Kal'shath allows him to lead her to her bed and sits down. He brushes her cheek as he tilts her head to look at him.

"We will arrive at Atlantis shortly. I go down to them, and you shall join me. I suggest that Astra and the cheif scientist come too. We may have need of them there. I will see if I can find one more person to acompany us, however" Todd's eyes took on a mischivous sparkle, "I'm sure that Inga's miraculous recovery would certinally casue much unease amongst the lantians."

Tenderly, he strokes Kal'shath's hair before turning to leave. "Rest, my Queen. I shan't leave without you." Then he leaves.

I don't know wheather to think of that performance as romantic or creepy, thinks Kal'shath. She has still not decided when she falls into a dreamless sleep.

March 17th, 2009, 04:07 AM
Inga summons Todd to The Infirmary. When Todd arrives... he immediately senses the change in Ingas mind... her mind is now full of seldriven rage towards the Lanteans.

Todd: You summoned me, Inga.

Inga: Yes i did... i would like to go with you to Atlantis... i think it would be "good" for us to let them know im alive.

Inga smiles evil and her blue eyes shine in rage.

She then awaits the good Commanders response.

NOTE:

[Sciense you brought Todd into the story from the entire beginning, Draygon... i think you would be the most fitting to "play him" in this moment. :)]

Todd bows to Inga in respect.

"I had been thinking the same thing. I am only willing to take a small group to the city, anymore and the Lantians' may well... over-react." His yellow eyes take on a dangerous edge. "And I will not endanger my queen and mate more than necessery."

He notices that the news comes as a surprise to Inga.

NOTE:
I don't mind playing Todd, or any other characters from SGA that need to be played. It's good writing practise :D

Todd left the infermary and went in search of Astra and the cheif scientist to inform them of the arrangement.

Astra receives Inga's summons and comes into the infirmary. Inga asks her for her help and Astra accompanies Inga to the quarters Todd has assigned to Inga. A large variety of female clothes is hung up neatly in a wardrobe. Astra asks Inga if her help is further requested.

Note1: I'll be offline for a bit but maybe I can manage some quick posts here and there.

Note2: Your old quarters have exploded but I'm sure the ones I thought up for you are cosy as well.

Inga thanx Astra warmly and then says that she can go. Once Astra has left... Inga starts trying on different female Wraith suits to see which one she likes the best. She finally decides to wear a black and red suit that looks simular to the one the old Primary (The one that Todd killed in "The Queen") used to wear. She fixes her hair to look alike the hairstyle of The old Primary... but in a shorter version and more pointier. After she has fully dressed up... she exits her quarters and heads for the bridge... fresh and new... and paler than ever. :D

On the command bridge, Todd sees that they are nearing their destination.

"Inform those that I have selected to accompany me," he told his second-in-command, "have them meet me here. No doubt the Lantians will wish to speak with us first."

The second-in-command leaves to fetch Kal'shath, Astra, the cheif scientist and Inga.

Kal'shath wises that Todd wouldn't insit on helping her all the time. She is pregnant, not crippled. As she sits beside Inga, she wonders if she knows.

"I suppose that you know of my...condition," she says, "I can't see how you haven't. Todd never seems to shut up about it!"

"I do not mind wheather you tell me or not. From what I have been able to determin, I have not long to go before I find out." Her mood turns sour as the city of Atlantis becomes visible on the screen. They are close.

I do not want my first child to be born in that place, she thinks. Todd turns to look at her. He obviously sensed her slight distress.

Do not fear, he tells her telepathically, I will let no harm come to you or our child. You have my word.

"I have come because of your recent treatment of two wraith that you held captive in our city.

On the screen, Sheppard's face remains impassive. "Don't know what you're talking about, Todd. Now give me a good reason not to blast you outta the sky."

Todd telepatically asks Kal'shath to stand beside him. She rises to join him.

"Oh, but you do know, Sheppard. I believe you have already met my Queen and mate." He indicates Kal'shath, who smiles at the shocked Shepaprd.

"Greetings again," she hisses, "I trust you do not require any more samples. only, I am not in any condition to supply them."

"You wish for an alliance with wraith? Your treatment of my queen jepodises that alliance."

"What do you want us to do?" asks Sheppard.

"Allow myself and a small group onto your city, including my Queen. Allow us access to the data from the experiments you conducted."

"And why would we do that?" asks a male that is unfamillier to Kal'shath, but Todd tells her telepathically that he is called Rodney McKay.

"Because then we would be able to tell other hives that there has been no breach in trust." His eyes narrow dangerously. "Unless we discover anything compromising."

She leans closer to the screen. She wants them to hear this. "And wraith would never touture a mother and her unborn child!" She smiles sweetly at the horrified expresions of the lantians. "Is there some sort of problem?"

"I assume that you checked those you captured first, before your experiments?" added Todd. His smile grew at Sheppards' unease. "Oh dear. You didn't know, did you? Who are the monsters now?"

"Prehaps it would be best if you reamine here," he says. Our child is close to being born, he continues telepathically, I will understand if you want to stay here.

"No," says Kal'sahth, struggling to her feet. Inga is beside her to offer a supportive arm. "I will manage."

The group head towards the dart bay. The stand and wait for teh dart piolet to swoop over them and beam them up.

They are rematerialised on one of the Atlantis piers. They are confronted by a welcome commity that consitst of Sheppard, ten marines and woman called Keller.

The groups stand there facing each other. None want to make the first move. Kal'shath telepathically contacts Inga and Astra. Both assure her that they support her.

The groups stand there facing each other. None want to make the first move. Kal'shath telepathically contacts Inga and Astra. Both assure her that they support her.

The Lanteans, most notably Sheppard (who killed Inga), are very suprised to see Wraith Queen Inga take a step forward.

Sheppard: I... I killed you?

Inga: Yes... yes you did... but as you see... not permanently.

Inga is very happy to see Sheppards confusion.

Sheppard: How?

Inga: Well... it all happened after you dumped my body in the ocean...

Inga then retells the whole story in a nutshell... and Sheppard looks even more confused after having heard the story.

Sheppard: Well... Welcome anyway, "Inga".

There is an uncomfortable silence... All the three Wraith females (Inga, Kal shath and Astra) stare at Sheppard with evil eyes.

Todd then breaks the uncomfortable silence:

Todd: Shall we proceed with our work then, my ladies?

All three Wraith females nod.

The group then leaves the pier.

Astra senses the tension. The whole hive is anxious what will happen now. At least the imminent danger of being blown out of the sky has passed. Lucky me, that would've been the third hiveship in two weeks, she thinks with a grim unamused smile.

She has a fierce resolution to show the Lanteans no weakness when they enter Atlantis but inside her there is turmoil since she was informed she would be part of the delegation. If their plan failed they would most likely be killed.

Well, the solution is simple: don't let the plan fail then. Astra smiles, this time genuinely.
Who gave you permission to enter my mind? she asks with mock indignation. She senses Deimos chuckle.
I felt you were anxious and I just wanted to remind you that you have a good reason to come back unharmed from your mission.
What reason would that be?
Me?
Don't you think you are over-confident?
He pauses and chuckles again, she then feels a sudden change in his emotions. In a concerned tone he continues Just take care of yourself. Despite the fact he can't see her she nods unconsciously I will. She walks out of her quarters to get to the flight bay in time. I'm on my way to the cruisers. Meet me there.

––––––––––––

Atlantis briefing room. Sheppard, McKay, Teyla, Ronon and Woolsey discuss the further course of action. Teyla asks "Has anyone been to Dr. Keller yet to inform her she will be having guests? She should be with us when they arrive." Woolsey answers her "I have already sent word to her and she will soon arrive here. She is checking the data of our - er - experiments again to be prepared."
Ronon pulls a face and rumbles "I still don't see why we can't just blast them away. They're Wraith. We don't need to justify ourselves. We don't even need a reason to shoot them down."
Rodney interrupts Ronon "Your charming attidute to shoot first and then question doesn't help us to find a permanent solution to the threat the Wraith are to this galaxy. As much as I hate to admit that, at the moment we still need the alliance with Todd."
All of them are receiving a radio transmission from Chuck. "Todd has informed us that his delegation will arrive in half an hour."
Woolsey confirms "Understood. We will be ready."

NOTE: Hey, guys! Give me a CHANCE! :mckay:
