Keller walks up to Kal'shath as they enter the city.

"Um, Hi. You might not remember me, and even if you do, I don't think you have the best impression of me. I'm Dr Keller."

"Ah yes," replied Kal'shath, "you were the one who used my body to catylise your new retrovirus, correct?"

Keller winced slightly. "I wanted to say how sorry I am. We know next to nothing about wraith physiology, not to mention... er... reproduction."

Kal'shath found the human female's unease on the subject slightly amusing.

"Look," said Keller, walking in front of Kal'shath, "I want to perform some tests." There was a snarl from Todd which made the marines raise their wapons. "Nothing that'll hurt. Just a few physical examinations, a few blood tests. Nothing major."

Kal'shath conciders this. "Very well," she replies, "but I wish for my hive's Keeper to accompany me." She nods towards Astra.

"That's fine," replies Keller, looking very relieved, "I don't see any problem with your... Keeper... to come with you."

She leads the way and Kal'shath, AStra and three marines follow her.

If anything goes wrong, she tells the others telepathically, make sure that I am informed.

Inga wanders through the hallways of Atlantis. She remembered every second of her time as both a human and a Wraith here. In a way, she was very thankfull for Chaya ascending her... or else she would have remained a human Wraith hybrid after being treated with this "Retrovirus"... and therefor become an outcast among her own kind. She now remembered everything she had experienced while living in the city as a human... her many dinners with her "friends"... her friendship with Teyla... and finally... Sheppard.
Although she wouldnt admit it to ANYONE else... Sheppard was the bright side of her time as a captive of the Lanteans... and every second after she had returned she feared that Kal shath or someone of the others would find out her feelings for Sheppard... and what had happened that night before she became Wraith again.
Just as Inga opened a new door... Sheppard appeared behind her.

Sheppard: Inga?

Inga turned around... she attempted to sound strong and cold... but failed becuase of her sexual feelings for this human... and she HATED herself for these feelings.

Inga: Yes, human?

Sheppard: You should be with your Wraith companions... you are not auothorised to wander around by yourself like this.

Inga smiles coldly.

Inga: What are you going to do to prevent me... Shoot me again?

Sheppard looked like he was ill... and in that exact same second... he exposed his feelings to Inga... Ingas blue eyes widened in shock:
The human still loved her... even as a Wraith... but he didnt hide his feelings very well...

Astra can't suppress her rage as they walk behind Keller. She begins to speak "I believe it is considered not ethically to perform experiments on a sentient being without their consent, let alone a pregnant female. You have nevertheless performed your experiments on my friends. That implys to me you don't consider Wraith to be sentient beings. You will understand I will protect my queen at all cost should you try to trick us. You better not harm her."

Keller grimaces uneasily and thinks of a reply.

Inga slowly approaches Sheppard... who has sensed Ingas presence in his mind.

Sheppard: What the hell did you just do?

Inga: I know, Sheppard... you have sexual feelings for me.

Sheppard: No way!

Sheppard backs away as Inga approaches.

Inga: Do not deny, Sheppard... i DO NOT like denial.

Sheppard: What the hell do you want from me?

Inga does not respond with words... she grabs Sheppard... pulls him towards her... and... kisses him. After a moment... Sheppard suddenly stops sturggling... he, strangely enough, starts kissing back...

Keller grimaces uneasily and thinks of a reply.

"WE didn't, I didn't know that your Queen was pregnant, or I wouldn't have even concidered teh experiments."

"And yet you did." said Kal'shath simply.

"I know," replied Keller.

They reached an isolated medical area. Inside, Keller asked Kal'shath to lie on a table with a scanner suspended above it. Kal'shath obliged. As she lay on th table, the scanner whirring above her, Keller took blood samples from her arm.

Astra, Kal'shath requested telepathically, can you contact the others, and see how they're doing with destroying the retrovisus?

Astra doesn't like splitting her attention. That means she can't keep a close eye on what that Keller female is doing. But she knows the importance of Todd's mission. She focuses on the others. She only finds the Chief Scientist and Todd and asks for a status report. Todd responds instantly. They are negotiating with the Lantean leaders.
–––––
Briefing room. Todd and the Chief Scientist are confronted with icy glares. A particularly icy glare comes from Ronon. He seems to wish his glare could kill. He still can't comprehend why they had to actually apologise to those creatures. He thinks he should have shot Todd when he had had the chance on the Genii prison planet. This Wraith causes trouble whenever he is around.

The negotiations become heated, Todd begins to growl. "You have betrayed me. I offered you to work with you and you abducted my queen and mate."
Woolsey attempts to calm Todd down "We didn't knew that at the time-"
Todd gets up angrily "It doesn't matter. You did it-"
As Todd gets up Ronon acts instinctively and gets up as well, pointing his gun at Todd.
A shocked silence falls in the room.
––––––––––––
Astra senses the sudden tension in Todd. He is being threatened. Astra moves to Keller and before any of the marines can react she grabs the doctor and holds a knife to Keller's throat. She hisses "No one moves!"

Kal' shath opens her eyes in shock. "What is it, Astra?"

Astra answers "Todd is being threatened by the Lanteans. We need this female as hostage to ensure our safety."

Keller freezes, her eyes on the knife that the wraith is hlding to her throat. She montions to the marines to lower their guns. She doesn't want anyone to get hurt in a cross-fire.

"Look," she says, "I'm sure there is just a misunderstanding." She notices one of the marines on his radio, calling for back up. Oh boy, things were getting worse. She noticed the wraith, Kal'shath slide herself off the examining table, only to suddnely double over and cry out.

"My Queen! Are you alright?" asks Astra. Kal'shath looks at her with fear-filled eyes.

"Time..." she mutters, a phrase that seems to make more sense to the wraith than it does Keller, but she cna guess.

"I need one of you to get Todd down here now," she says, "There's something wrong."

Inga slowly approaches Sheppard... who has sensed Ingas presence in his mind.

Sheppard: What the hell did you just do?

Inga: I know, Sheppard... you have sexual feelings for me.

Sheppard: No way!

Sheppard backs away as Inga approaches.

Inga: Do not deny, Sheppard... i DO NOT like denial.

Inga does not respond with words... she grabs Sheppard... pulls him towards her... and... kisses him. After a moment... Sheppard suddenly stops sturggling... he, strangely enough, starts kissing back...

Inga and Sheppard are lying in Sheppards bed in his quarters. Inga still cant believe that she has done what she has just done. She smiles for one thing at least... she managed to make Sheppard put his radio away... so that they could be alone.

Sheppard: Still cant believe ive just done this.

Inga: (laughs) That you just had sex with a Wraith?

Sheppard: Yea.

There is a moment of silence.

Sheppard: Did you use your mind powers to get me into bed?

Inga: Well... Maybe "a little"...

Sheppard laughs.

After a moment Sheppards looks on his watch.

Sheppard: Dear god... Its been almost an hour and a half... i gotta get to the others.

Sheppards gets up and starts getting dressed.

Inga raises up and gets dressed herself.

Inga: Ill go with you.

Sheppard: What are we gonna tell the others?

Inga: Most certainly not the truth.

The two of them laugh again.

After getting dressed... the two of them leave. Sheppard is still muttering "I still cant believe i just did this"...

As Inga and Sheppard are rushing through the hallways... Inga suddenly senses the change in Kal shaths mind... something is seriously wrong with her. Inga turns to Sheppard... slowly pulls out her stunner out of sight for Sheppard.

Inga: I am sorry for this, John.

Sheppard: For what?

Inga quickly stunns Sheppard... and rushes away towards the Infirmary to help Kal shath.

"I need one of you to get Todd down here now," she says, "There's something wrong."

Having received the urgent call from the marines Todd enters the room, brought there by several more marines. Obviously news had spread Keller was held hostage. Astra snarls at the marines "Do you need to watch this?! Do you have no respect for the queen's dignity? You will leave the room now or I will seriously hurt this female (she still holds the knife to Keller's throat)."

The marines back away slowly while Kal'shath shrieks in pain. Todd picks her up and places her gently on a bed. Kal'shath gasps and looks wild-eyed at Keller "I need your help! Tell the warriors to leave the room and help me." She pauses as another surge of pain makes her cringe. "You have my word we won't kill you."
Keller shakily requests the marines should leave the room completely "Please back off. I'm sure you can make a - a perimeter or whatever it's called around the infirmary. Please go."

One of the marines talks a few short sentences in his radio then motions to the other marines. They back out of the room.
Astra lowers her knife and pushes Keller over to Kal'shath. "Help her!"

Inga rushes towards the Infirmary. She arrives and opens the doors...
Astra and Todd are standing bent over Kal shath... the female known as Keller is also there.

Inga: What is going on?

Todd: Come in and close the doors quickly.

Inga has immediately learned everything that has happened throguh Todds mind. She enters and closes the doors behind her.

Inga: What can i do to help?

NOTE:

I will go to bed now... so keep my part in the story low while im gone :)

Astra lowers her knife and pushes Keller over to Kal'shath. "Help her!"

Keller gulped nevously. This was certinally something that she had not expected to deal with! She looked at Todd, panic filling her features.

"Look, I'm not trained to deal with this sort of thing. I don't know what I'm menat to do." Todd and Astra snarl at her. " I may end up doing more harm than good!"

At that moment, Inga enters and looks worridly at the shrieking Kal'shath. Todd stands back to allow her room.

Keller resolves herself and activates her radio. "I need Dr Jennings in here stat. Tell her to bring what ever equipment that she may need."

Keller returned to Kal'shath's side to see what she can do until Atlantis' only trained midwife turned up.

*At that time the Chief Scientist picks up a dropped stunner and offers to guard the door while Kal'shath gives birth.*

Astra nods gratefully. One problem she doesn't need to think of, instead she can concentrate on watching Keller. Todd seems to be completely oblivious of his surroundings. He hasn't taken his eyes off Kal'shath. Inga is kneeling by Kal'shath's side.
Astra is extremely troubled by their situation. Kal'shath hasn't left enough concentration to shield her mind and all of her pain floods their telepathic network. Plus the contractions are getting stronger and draining her power. They would need food for her after the birth.

Draygon
March 17th, 2009, 12:35 PM
Kal'shath screams again at the latest contraction. She feels Todd's mind giving her strength and Inga's, attempting to sooth her and offer help. The human Keller attempts to help, but Kal'shath's mind is so clouded with pain that she doesn't notice what the human is doing.

As ther contractions grow stronger, Kal'shath weakens. Another human feamle enters and speaks hurridly with Keller. Todd's mind becomes more insistant as her failing streangth threatens to leave her. Hold on, his mind commands,do not weaken.

Kal'shath isn't sure she can...

March 18th, 2009, 03:16 AM
Dr. Jennings hurries into the room and is extremely nervous when she sees the five Wraith in the room. As if one of them wouldn't be enough. Is this a childbirth or a meeting? The female Wraith standing next to Dr. Keller gives her a glare and a hiss. Dr. Jennings bites her lip before she attempts to speak. "Er... I'll tell you right from the start that I have no idea about what a Wraith birth is like. I don't want to -" The expectant mother shrieks out.

Dr. Jennings makes a decision "Okay, we'll just do this by the book. Dr. Keller, do you know how to make epidural anesthesia?" Keller nods and answers "Yes... we know Wraith respond to sedatives in a similar way as humans. It might work."
Dr. Jennings is a bit flustered because of the crowd in the room. The huge male sitting by the bed has to be the father. Time he could make himself useful. "You", she adresses Todd who looks up irritated and distracted. "You make her sit up please. We'll have to anaesthetise her."

Todd obeys and pulls Kal'shath upright altough she protests and shrieks again "Noooo! Leave me alone! - No! Do something! You useless fool! That's all your fault!" Todd growls threateningly "Not as I am remembering it. Now pull yourself together - you are a Wraith queen!"

Kal'shath glares at him with bared teeth and madness in her eyes. She shakes uncontrollably and raises her right hand, ready to strike at Todd. Another contraction renders her paralysed and her hand falls down again.

Dr. Jennings approaches her carefully, ready to back off at any time the female should get aggressive again. "Please hold her hands, will you. Hold her very tightly. I don't want to hurt her. She needs to be as still as possible now." She motions to Keller who injects the anaesthetic in Kal'shath's back.

Jennings and Keller back off quickly. It takes three times the human medication dose for Kal'shath to finally calm down as the pain subsides. She is still breathing heavily but her mind is clear once more. Dr. Jennings is finally able to examine her patient. She is very aware that four hostile pairs of Wraith eyes are fixed on her. That's right. Put me under pressure. She is relieved to find the physiology is similar enough to a human's that she can utilise her knowledge. The child is in the right position and judging from the ultrasonic images has the right dimensions. A walk in the park, she thinks but pearls of sweat form on her forehead nevertheless.

It takes some more minutes. Kal'shath is encouraged by Todd and Inga both verbally and telepathically. Finally a faint wail sounds through the room.
Dr. Jennings is amazed and touched. Who would have thought that? I've delivered a baby Wraith... The small creature almost looks like a human, the only difference is the greenish tinge to the skin and the white fluff of hair on its head - his head, she corrected herself. Her reflexes as trained midwife kick in and make her give the baby to his mother. "Meet your son." She actually smiles at the mother.

Kal'shath takes the tiny creature. Uphoria fills her body as she senses the tiny mind of her son. She tries to sheak her head to clear the mist from her vision. Instead her body sudders and blackness threatens to engulph her mind and vision. Todd's hand steadies her and she feels Astra take the child.

"My mate needs to feed," says Todd, "it is vital that she is returned to my hive immideatly."

Todd glances over to Keller and the marines before nodding to Inga.

"Make sure that you get her to Dr Helion immidiatly," he reminded her, before hlpeing her lift Kal'shath.

"um..."

Todd turned to Keller, who had her hand raised. "What?"

"If you'll allow me, I want to accompany your, er, mate and child." She held up her hands in defence as Astra turned on her. "I want to help. I mean, we don't know for certain that our experiments haven't harmed her or the baby."

She looked pleadingly at Todd. He was shaking with newly inflamed rage at teh possible harm that could have befallen Kal'shath and their son.

"Very well," he growled, "but you will not be allowed ou of Inga's sight. Do you understand?"

Keller nodded, before hurrying after Inga.

NOTE:

Inga has two major reasons for wanting to leave Atlantis right now:

1: Helping Kal shath and the baby...

and

2: Getting away from Sheppard... who could wake up soon! :D

Inga, Kal shath (holding in the baby) and Keller make it to one of the piers without being seen by the marines or any other Lanteans. Inga contacts the Hive... and soon after... a dart arrives and swoaps them up with its culling beam.

Back on the Hive... Keller is now examining Kal shath in The Infirmary. Inga has ordered a few drones and D.R Helion to keep a VERY close eye on the Lantean doctor. Inga is watching the baby in the mean time... they are residing in her quarters. The two of them have learned to get along very well... even though the child is not even able to speak yet.

*Meanwhile the Chief Scientist, Todd, and Astra were captured by the Atlantians. Sheppard walks by their forcefield cell and asks them where Dr. Keller is. The Chief Scientist replies that she is probably on the Hive by now (by saying this he has just given the Atlantians another reason not to blow up our hive). As Sheppard turns away to talk on the radio the Chief Scientist tells him not to bother sending a jumper team. He informs Sheppard that the hive can detect cloaked ships when they are within a certain range. Rodney then comes into the room and hears the exchange. Angrily he turns to the Wraith and says that if any harm has come to Jennifer he will kill them. Todd replies that she went of her own free will and as a guest of the hive she will not be harmed. As Sheppard tells Rodney to calm down a little Mr. Woolsey contacts them. He says that he has just spoken with the hive. They want to leave in peace, so they are sending a dart containing Dr. Keller to Atlantis. Also they want the prisoners on the east pier so that they can pick them up after they drop off Dr. Keller. He thinks that the team should take the Wraith up on their offer.* Awaiting Sheppard's response.

As they are led to the east pier Astra is very tense. She feels a strange presence sneaking around in her mind. Turning she snarls at the female called Teyla. "Get out of my mind at once." Several of the marines point their weapons at Astra.

Todd contacts her telepathically Stop that. Don't show them aggression.

We still haven't taken revenge for what they have done. They are still far too smug., Astra points out.

Todd stays calm The last word is not spoken yet in that issue. We will leave this place now. Let us just say for now... I still have plans. A narrow-eyed smile spreads across his face.

As the dart approches the peir, Todd recives an urgent telepathic communication from Dr Helion. He stands stok still, his eyes widening in fear. Astra senses the sudden change in the commander.

"What is the matter?"

"Kal'shath... she is dying," he tells her, just as they are beamed up by the dart.

Inga, Kal shath (holding in the baby) and Keller make it to one of the piers without being seen by the marines or any other Lanteans. Inga contacts the Hive... and soon after... a dart arrives and swoaps them up with its culling beam.

Back on the Hive... Keller is now examining Kal shath in The Infirmary. Inga has ordered a few drones and D.R Helion to keep a VERY close eye on the Lantean doctor. Inga is watching the baby in the mean time... they are residing in her quarters. The two of them have learned to get along very well... even though the child is not even able to speak yet.

Inga is getting dressed up in her quarters. She has given Kal shaths baby to the second in Command... and she has now decided to leave... and proceed with the mission Chaya has given her. She leaves a note behind (adressed to Kal shath), picks her leathery, black package up... and then she leaves her quarters... heading of for the Dart bay. She makes extra effort to make sure noone sees here. After a few minutes... Inga has left The Hive.

Astra has no time left to worry when the beam hits her and whiteness washes through her mind. The next thing she knows is being re-materialised in the dart bay and watching Todd speeding towards the next transporter.

She hurries after him, jumping in just as the beam streams down to transport them to the infirmary deck. They arrive at Kal'shath's side in a run.

Dr. Helion stands there, shaking from head to toe. He explains them he has just gifted Kal'shath and stabilised her condition but his life force wasn't sufficient to wake her from coma. He doesn't know when she could wake up. Todd nods gravely and takes place beside Kal'shath's unmoving figure. "Where is my son?", he asks.

Dr. Helion points at a cradle and excuses himself. He needs to feed now and leaves the room. Astra moves over to the cradle. "He's asleep", she tells Todd.

Todd looks at her and requests that she should care for his son as long as Kal'shath is unconsious. Astra nods. "We should leave him here with his mother. The connection between them might make her wake up soon."

"I hope that too", Todd sighs.

Todd turns to leave the infermary. Much as he may wish to remain near his queen, he has his duty to the hive.

"Astra," he says, "I understand that Kal'shath wished to make you a Keeper as she had on the old hive. I agree with her desicion." He looks back at the unconcious form of Kal'shath. "If I may ask this of you, but... stay with her. At least until certain elements have left."

He glares at Keller, who finishes downloading the information from the experiments to a wraith terminal.

"Don't worry," she muttered, "I'm going."

March 18th, 2009, 11:16 AM
Astra watches Keller unplugging her laptop from the terminal. Astra can sense the terror in the human. And she has a good reason to be afraid. Maybe I can increase her fear still a bit.

Astra moves over to Keller and hisses at her. The human turns around and stares with round eyes at Astra.
Astra narrows her amber eyes and says "If you ever dare to experiment on a member of my hive again I will personally kill you - several times."

Keller starts to stutter "Oh, no, no-no worries. Won't happen. Certainly!" She nods vigorously. "I'll - I mean I'm - I'm kind of finished here so if you please point me in the direction of the jumper- er dart bay..." Facing Astra's glare her words simply fade out of hearing range.

"You will be brought there. Just leave the infirmary now." Keller nods, her laptop cradled in her arms before her breast. As if that piece of electronics could save her. Keller leaves the room.

Astra sighs. Finally she's on her own, nearly. Her mind is a hopeless puzzle of thoughts mingled together. I'm a Keeper again, she thinks. I should be grateful and happy but somehow I can't be happy as long as Kal'shath is still in coma. But the little one is safe and that means much.

Note: Since Kal'shath is in coma and Astra in the infirmary no one has yet realised Inga isn't there. Maybe it would help if the Second-in-command declared Inga has left and wrote a message.

Dr. Helion ponders Astra's question for a while before answering "I'm afraid there isn't much we can do for Kal'shath at the moment. Her condition is not life-threatening as such, she needs an impulse to wake up. That could be literally anything. A word, a song, a gentle touch, the presence of a specific person."

Everyone who means something to her had already been here. Todd, her son, Inga, me. Our combined presence didn't wake her up. Astra looks down at the baby who has fallen asleep while drinking and is now snoozing in her arms. Maybe your father can help. He could try one more time. Astra sends a telepathic message to Todd who comes into the infirmary shortly after. He had already been on his way after he had dealt with his duties as commander.

He stands beside Kal'shath, an unreadable expression on his face. Without warning he raises his right hand and brings it down hard on Kal'shath's chest. He roars as he withdraws her life force, nearly killing her. Kal'shath gasps and opens her eyes in shock.

Todd removes his hand and smiles one of his inscrutable smiles. He turns to Astra and Dr. Helion who stare in open-mouthed disbelief. "Would you please leave us alone for a bit? I want to give Kal'shath back what is hers in private."

Kal'shath glowers at Todd but doesn't object.

Astra and Dr. Helion leave the room, the doctor muttering something about "unconventional methods".

Todd forces Kal'shath back down onto the bed as he gently this time places his feeding hand on her chest.

"You gave us quite a fright," he told her, "We feared that you would not pull through."

Kal'shath groans as her life is returned to her. "There are plesanter sight to wake up to. You feeding off me, is to one of them."

Todd chuckles at Kal'shath's scorn. "Believe me, there are worse." He notices Kal'shath's gaze has shifted to the crib. Gently, Todd picks up the tiny infant and gives him to his mother. Kal'shath's joy and pleasure for her son is infectious and over-welming.

"Wlecome back, my Queen." Todd says as he strokes his mate's hair.

-----------
On Atlantis, a meeting had been called as soon as Keller had returned.

"What's the big fuss about?" asked Sheppard as he entered the room.

"It's Todd's Queen, Kal'shath. The one we experimented on?" said Woolsey, "Dr Keller tells us that she has fallen into a coma and is in a potentiolly critical condition."

Ronon seemed unfazed by the news. "So? That's good, isn't it?"

"No," replied Keller, "it's not. From what I've been able to work out from the information I was able to access aboard the hive, her condition is linked directly back to what we did to her."

"Does Todd know?" asked Sheppard.

"If doesn't now, it'll only be a matter of time," answered Keller, "and it might not just be her. I wasn't able to do any checks on the baby, so I have no idea if it's affected too."

"So to round it up," said Rodney, "we are not going to be Todd's favourite people."

"We can try and eliviate the situation slightly," said Woolsey. He looked accross to Keller and Sheppard. "We need to call Todd's hive back, inform him of our suspisions and offer our help."

"Like that's ever going to work." muttered Ronon.

"We have to try," replied Woolsey, grimly.

"Commander!"

Todd turned to the technician. "What is it?"

"Incomming transmission."

"On-screen."

The screen altered to show the images of Woolsey, Keller and Sheppard. Todd snarled.

"What do you want now?"

"We wanted to talk to you," said Woolsey, "about your... current situation."

"We have reason to believe that the experimentations that were carried out on you Queen are teh reason behind her condition," added Keller. Todd realised that the humans still believed Kal'shath to be in a coma. Prehaps it would be wise to leave them in that belief.

"Then it is your fault that my mate is suffering," he growled. "Why should I return?"

"What about the kid, Todd?" said Sheppard.

"Your Dr Keller was kind enough to provide us with all your information from the experiments," said Todd coolly. He noticed Keller mutter "at knife point" and grinned. "So rest assured Sheppard, if my son is in any danger, we shall deal with it. You have caused enough damage."

On that last statement, Todd cut transmission.

Knowing Kal'shath and the child were safe Astra returned to her quarters to get some rest before she starts taking over her job as Keeper.

You're back.
Obviously, she is amused. And again you had no invitation to my mind.
My apologies, Mistress. Deimos answers with dry sarcasm.
Where are you? she asks. Meet me at my quarters, please.

He is already there, waiting in front of her door as she approaches her quarters. Checking first no one is near them she hugs him. "I missed you", he says simply, stroking her hair. Astra feels her tension leaving her. The mission could have failed, she could have been killed in Atlantis. Just now she is plain happy to be here again. Just sharing a moment's peace with Deimos is all she requires. Astra sighs "I hope trouble will keep away from us for the next time. I need to calm down."

Deimos frowns "Speaking of trouble: we need to watch out for the commander who attacked Kal'shath at the ceremony. He is a back-stabbing snake." he tells her in a serious tone. "Listen to me, he is dangerous. It had probably been his intention from the start to cause trouble at the ceremony."

Astra pulls away from him. "You know him. I felt your anger. Who is he?"

"His name is Phobos. We had an ally some time ago." He turns her back to her. "I'd rather not talk about that if you don't mind." She feels anger building up in him again and doesn't press the point. Instead she walks up to him, putting her hands on his shoulders and slightly kissing his cheek. "Don't worry about him now. We don't know what he is up to. He could be at the other end of the galaxy minding his own business by now."

Astra turns away and opens the door to her quarters, suddenly nervous. "It's better to get some rest now. I feel terribly tired. I'll... see you later then."

Deimos suppresses his disappointment. But he feels her unease and reluctance. Strange. I've never met a female as hesitant and vulnerable before. He nods "I will see you later. Rest well, Astra." He turns and leaves.

-----

On the bridge of his hiveship Commander Phobos watches his navigator who programs their new course into the terminal. They would follow Todd's ship and set an ambush.

That Kal'shath is not suitable to be primary. I will take care of her... permanent removal. An evil smile spreads across his tattoed face. Should the opprtunity arise I can also take care of Deimos once and for all.

Kal'shath sat in the infermary. She felt better, but Todd had refused to let her leave just yet. He seemed so concerned about her, it was touching. She looked back down at her infant son.

"I haven't even named you yet," she mused. "Things have been so manic."

She wondered when Inga would visit her. Kal'shath's mental abilities were still strained. She could barely sense her mate's mind. Dr Helion insisted that she continue to rest.

Maybe I should follow the doctor's advice, she thought.

"Of course", Kal'shath looks up. "I am pleased to see you. Come over here and have a look at my son. He has opened his eyes."

Astra walks almost carefully over and looks at the baby. His eyes are still unfocused but he seems to stare intendly at his mother. Astra is a bit timid. She isn't sure what to say so she settles for an obvious question.

"Have you found a name for him yet?" Astra asks.

The other Wraith nod in agreement and go back to their duties.*

I hope that you remain safe Inga, she thinks to herself, I don't want to have to lose you again, old friend.

On the bridge, Todd senses the aproch of another hive ship. For reasons unknown, Todd feels great unease about this hive...

Draco-Stellaris
March 19th, 2009, 01:10 PM
The unknown hiveship drops out of hyperspace, opening fire immediately. Todd orders to fire back and tries to hail the enemy ship.

---------

On the bridge of the other ship Phobos receives a status report from a technician "The enemy fires back, all shields are holding so far."

Phobos nods "The shields won't need to hold much longer. Any second now our reinforcements will arrive." He shows his teeth in a nasty grin.

"We are being hailed by them. Shall I put them on the screen, commander?"

Not turning around Phobos answers "That is not necessary. They will either soon be dead or our attack fails and we need to retreat. In both scenarios we don't need to talk to them."

At that moment four cruisers drop out of hyperspace on the opposite side of Todd's ship and open fire as well.

----------

"Four cruisers just dropped out of hyperspace on starboard and opened fire as well!" the second-in-command looks worried at Todd. "We won't be able to stand that fire long."

Todd hesitates before he orders "Dispatch darts to engage the cruisers in battle. That might pull their fire away from us."

----------

"The enemy has sent out darts to distract the cruisers. Should we dispatch darts too, commander?"

"No. If we are not able to destroy them within five minutes we will retreat. No need to waste darts. All depends now on our cruisers. If they can keep firing at the hive we will succeed."

Draygon
March 19th, 2009, 01:17 PM
Todd snarled as the hive took more damage. They would not be able to stand this for much longer. He saw Astra run onto the bridge, along wit hthe Chief Scientist.

"See if you can find a way to boost our hive's strength," he ordered, "Or we are all dead!"

Draco-Stellaris
March 19th, 2009, 01:41 PM
Astra runs to the next computer terminal to check on the ship's hull structure. "We are taking severe damage. If they don't stop firing we'll all be dead in a matter of minutes."

Todd growls. "They don't even talk to us. Who is that anyway?"

"It's Phobos." Deimos states calmy from the doorway. "It's his style. Sneaking up on us and setting a trap. There is nothing we can do but pray the cruisers stop firing. He will scarper when his attack doesn't succeed within the first ten minutes."

Astra throws in "Hull breach on seven different decks. I've sealed the compartments off but we are not able to get to the dart bay from here."

----------

The darts weave through space, winding their way between the cruisers, pulling the fire on themselves. An explosion bursts out of the bridge of one cruiser, cascading through the fuselage and breaking the ship apart.

----------

Phobos snarls. "Their dart pilots are too good! Retreat! Now." He spins around and hurries to the door. "I will now explain to her what happened. Get us to our next feeding ground.", he barks as he leaves.

----------

"The remaining cruisers open hyperspace windows and flee." Todd's second-in-command reports. "The hive has veered and opens a hyperspace window as well."

Everyone on the bridge hold their breath for a moment, then exhaling in relief.

Todd is the first to speak again. "Astra, Chief Scientist, see to the hull damage. I will go to the infirmary to make sure Kal'shath and my son are safe." He leaves.

[Night night!]

Kal'shath felt the battle in the infermary. She calms her son the best she can. Soon the quakes of battle cease.

"It is over," sighs Kal'shath, then she screams at the pain caused by an enemy mind forcing itself on her.

"Kal'shath!"

She feels Todd's soothing presance as the mind retreats. she is shaking uncontrolably. Gently, Todd manages to pry their child from her grip, before her nails can harm him.

"The enemy commander... phobos, he-" she started.

"I know," said Todd, "I sensed his 'message' before I entered." He helped her to stand to her feet, beofre returning Tral'shath to her. "The hive ahs been damaged and Dr Helion will need all the room he can get in the infermery. Let me escourt you back to your room."

"Thank you," replied Kal'shath. She took Todd's arm and he led her out of the infermary.

Phobos is in a bad mood. Angrily he stomps through the corridors of his ship, snarling at a drone who didn't manage to get out of the way soon enough, thus delaying the commander. I should have sent five cruisers to be on the safe side. I will not underestimate them again. Having reached his destination he stops in front of a door and readjusts his composure. Finally feeling calm enough he enters the room.

His queen lounges on her throne lazily, studying her long nails with bored interest. He bows and opens his mouth to speak but she is faster. "Your surprise attack failed. I am a bit disappointed with you."

"I had not expected they had such skilled pilots. As you know my strategy seldom fails", he states a bit miffed. He doesn't like being criticised, not even by his queen.

"My dear Phobos, I do not mistrust your abilities", she smirks "but you know what's at stake so you would better find another way of removing Kal'shath soon. There can only be one primary and that will be me."

"I already have a plan in mind." Phobos smiles. "If we can't destroy them with mere weapons power we will be cunning and infiltrate them.

The queen gets up and stands before Phobos, running a long clawed finger along his cheekbone almost caressingly, she says with a hiss in her voice "Do whatever is necessary but don't disappoint me again. You may leave now."

Bowing again Phobos leaves and summons his second-in-command. Come to me quick. We need to discuss a new plan.

*The Chief Scientist reports that the damage to the hive has been repaired and that he and Astra are currently working on increasing the hull strength and integrity of the ship.*

Todd accepts the Cheif Scientist's report. He is relieved that he and Astra were able to repair the hive so swiftly. However, many of the storage chambers were destroyed in the fight, and so soon there will be nothing for them to feed upon.

"Set course for the nearest inhabited world," he commands. "I will inform the crew of the culling."

"Commander," says the second-in-command, "we lost many pilots in the attack. We may not have enough to perform a sucessful culling."

"That is why I, and any other member of the crew that is compitant enough, will be excecuting the culling," Todd informs the second-in-command. "Let me know when we arrive. In the meantime, there is still much that needs to be repaired."

Draco-Stellaris
March 20th, 2009, 12:22 PM
Astra is almost disappointed that she has to stay on the ship, she enjoys flying a dart. Todd is absolutely right though. There still is much to be repaired.

She senses the darts leaving the ship and depart for the planet. I hope they are successful.

She is working her way through the floor reconstruction settings. Should we try a blue coloured floor or maybe red for a change... ? Ah, doesn't really matter. Making the necessary adjustments for the floor to grow back she feels that the darts approach the ship. Something's wrong, she thinks.

Her worst fears are confirmed as she hears the second-in-command's voice over the speakers all over the ship "Pay attention. Our commander has been captured during the culling by unknown enemies. They have left the planet using the stargate. We will investigate the last gate adresses and figure out where the commander has been taken to. In the meantime I will take over the command for the ship."

Astra is appalled and sends a telepathic message to the Chief Scientist, explaining to him she has done all necessary settings and the ship would now regenerate as programmed on its own. She then hurries to Kal'shath's quarters to see after her friend.

Kal'shath sensed Todd leaving several hours ago. The other darts have returned from the culling, but she could not sense Todd among them. Suddenly, she hears the second-in-command's voice as it delivers the news throughout the ship. Kal'shath is in shock.

Todd, taken?! Who by? What did they want with him? Was it the Lantians, a rival Hive? Who?!

Tral'shath began to cry in his crib. She knew that he had picked up on her own fears for her son's father and she did what she could to calm him. But she was too agitated and unable to muster any calming influence.

Just then Astra entered, looking concered.

"It is all right," Kal'shath said, "I already know."

*The Chief Scientist informs the Queen that Todd's tracking beacon has ceased transmitting. He thinks the enemy must have taken it out of him and disabled it. We sent some darts through to his last known position but the enemy hive there jumped into hyperspace. The Chief Scientist believes that the hive in question belonged to Phobos. He requests that Deimos come to the bridge to brief the crew on what we are up against.*

"It is all right," Kal'shath said, "I already know."

"I'm so sorry for you", Astra says. "I'm sure he is alright wherever he is. He is a fighter, he won't give up. Whoever has captured him wanted him alive."

Kal'shath sighs. "I know. He is tough." Tral'shath has calmed down a bit and stopped crying.

"I wonder how many enemies we have in this galaxy." Astra doesn't expect an answer. "It's bad enough that we're up against the Lanteans. Or maybe not, at the moment who knows where the Lanteans stand. What really makes me cringe is that we have to constantly fight our own brothers and sisters. I wish this war would stop."

"Me too", Kal'shath agrees.

"I don't want to keep you from your duties as queen and mother. You have certainly even more to do now. Let me know if there is anything I can do for you or your son", Astra leaves.

----------

Deimos enters the bridge and hears the news from the Chief Scientist.
"I don't think it was Phobos. That doesn't sound like him. He usually doesn't bother with taking hostages." Deimos hesitates before he continues. "He is a coward and wouldn't attempt a new attack on us in such a short time. It was another hive."



Note: We won't be able to find Todd for some time now. He takes up too much attention when he's around. ;)

Kal'shath summons the high ranking members of the hive to meet her in the throne room. She leaves Tral'shath asleep in her chambers, but keeps a close mental eye on him.

"Our main concern at this moment," she informs them, "is the relocation of the commander and my mate." She looks at the Cheif Scientist. "Have we anymore information on who our new enemy is?"

Name: Amina
Rank: Trained as scientist, but would rather fly darts
Description: Dredlocked black hair in a ponytail. Female version of Bob's outfit, complete with heeled boots. She is stubborn, hard-headed, but has good intentions.
Relationships: Dutifully works for her hive and Queen. Tried a career change as a hunter, but gave it up after she was ashamed that she couldn't catch her prey (Ronon). The commander is slightly suspicious of her and her past, but doesn't say a thing b/c of her loyalty so far. Her affections towards a certain wraith is unsettling to some, but he accepts her anyway.

Deimos comes into the throne room and bows before his queen. "Forgive me for intruding like this, my queen but I have urgent news. We have picked up a faint signal which fits the description of the unknown hiveship." He looks at Kal'shath. "We may have found the commander."

Kal'shath: "Set course then. We will hunt them down."

The ship drops out of hyperspace.

The second-in-command's voice sounds over the speakers: "Everyone experienced in dart battle is ordered to the dart bay. We are approaching the enemy hive. Our aim is disabling the ship not destroying it. Remember our commander is likely to be on board that ship. Take out its hyperdrive and intercept any darts that could threaten us. Command during dart battle has sub-commander Amina. The Chief Scientist, Astra and Deimos are ordered to stay on the bridge."

The ship approaches the enemy hive and darts are swarming out of the bay door.

Good, she replies telepathically, remember we must locate the commander.

She summons Astra. She arrives swiftly.

"I will be following the others onto the enemy hive, as soon as it is secured," she tells Astra. Astra looks as though she is about to object. "No, I have made up my mind. I must aid in the rescue of my mate. But I want you to make sure that my son is safe while I am gone."

She looks at Astra, seeing if she will object again.

In the meantime Phobos's hiveship has followed in a safe distance and is in hiding shielded from sensor range by a belt of asteroids.
"Assemble my team and make a dart ready. I will depart in ten minutes." Phobos leaves the bridge and heads for the dart bay.

Ten minutes later a single dart leaves the ship and flies a circle to mingle with the other darts in the battle.

No one notices it entering the hive when the other darts return.

She makes sure that the hive know that the second-in-command is in charge during her brief absence. Kal'shath also quickly checks on her son and is relieved to sense Astra with him.

She boards the waiting cruiser and the ship takes her accross to the enemy ship. She sees Amina as soon as she disembarks, but can see no sign of Todd. Her mind fills with grief. He must have been transfered to another hive, in order to confuse the search for him. She turns back to Armina.

*Amina leads her Queen to the enemy queens room. The room is bright, by wraith standards, and highly decorated. The queen has short red hair and tattoos and rings in her ears and on her lip.

Kal'shath snarled at teh queen.

"Where is my mate?" she demanded.

"I take it you mean that commander we captured," the enemy queen drawled, "I'm afraid you're too late."

Kal'shath growled. Taking a knife from her belt she slashed the queen accross the face.

"I say again: where is he?" She cut the queen again. "How lonf until you are no longer able to heal your injures. Shall we find out?"

The enemy queen shrieked as Kal'shath stabbed and cut her repatedly.

"He's alive!"

"Good start. Where is he?"

"We sold him," the queen panted, "in exchange for human slaves."

"Where?"

"I will never tell you!" the queen hissed.

"Then you have out-lived your usefulness," Kal'shath sadi simply, before slambing her hand into the enemy queen's chest, taking what reimaning life energy she possesed. When the queen was dead, Kal'shath turned to Amina.

"Check the logs of this vessel. See if you can find out where they took the commander."

"This planet," she tells Amina, "was once controlled by a people called the Genii. It was destroyed many hundreds of years ago. Most likely they used the planet as a drop-off point."

Kal'shath conciders the options avaible to them. It is known that the Genii are allies with the Lantians. Going up against the Genii will most likly casue the lantians to come to their aid, but they must risk it.

"Remove what you can from this hive," she instructs Amina. "Once you are finished, set the self-destrct and return to the hive."

Kal'shath returns to the cruiser, which is already filling up with items from the enemy hive. The cruiser waits for a few more items to be brought on board before returning to the hive.

Phobos curses mentally. That idiot! I told him to wait but he wanted to be a hero. Now the whole hive knows we are here and they will put up guards everywhere.

Phobos turns to the rest of his team. He has still three wraith left to help him.

He hisses "The queen will be in her quarters by now. We will never be able to get in there now. We have to wait. She can't stay in there forever. We will hide, if necessary for days."

----------

Deimos starts to growl absently. He tries to locate Astra and is relieved to find her in the queen's quarters with Tral'shath. That is the most heavily guarded place on the ship right now. Stay exactly where you are, whatever happens.

He receives an indignant reaction back from her Who do you think you are? You can't give me orders. Only the queen gives me orders. She will decide if I'm to stay here.

Deimos sighs I just want you to stay out of danger. Secretly he hopes he will be the one who finds Phobos first. It was about time for a payback.

Walking by the armoury he helps himself to two additional daggers and hides them in the folds of his coat. Then he goes searching for Phobos.

Kal'shath enters her quarters to Astra's relief. Kal'shath briefs her on what had happened. Astra is torn between staying with Kal'shath to protect her, should the need arise, or if she should help searching the ship for the intruders. Kal'shath senses her unease and sets her free "My quarters are already guarded, you may make yourself useful by helping searching."

Until they are certain it is safe for her, it is the hive's best interest for Kal'shath to stay in her heavily-guarded room.

*The Chief Scientist reports that there is an area on the surface that is jamming our lifesign sensors. He orders the darts to search that area immediately.*

Draco-Stellaris
March 24th, 2009, 04:21 AM
Astra receives the coordinates from the Chief Scientist and leads her darts to that area. There is a low complex of buildings on the ground, looking unobstrusive and neglected. She gives order to dispatch the troops from the dart's storages to search on the ground and lands her own dart close to the buildings.

She gets out and enters the building cautiously with a dozen of drones. Apparently the building had been neglected for years. A layer of dust is covering the surfaces of crates, machines and coaches standing randomly around.

Suddenly she spins around. There was a clinking noise. Like someone trying to be quiet and not succeeding. Instinctively she ducks and rolls out of the way as a volley of bullets perforates the ground where she just stood.

The doors are closing and Astra and the drones are trapped in a building full of unknown enemies. She can hear firing on the outside of the building. P-90s and stunners. The Lanteans had come to aid their Genii allies.

----------

The assassin closes in on Kal'shath. She had sensed him and was ready to protect herself and the child. Good. That is all according to plan, he thinks.

Kal'shath hisses "Who is here? Come out at once! I know you are here."

He comes out of the shadows, holding a knife in each hand. "You'd better not call for help. You wouldn't want me to throw a knife at the crib, would you?"

Kal'shath steps protectively in front of the crib and snarls at the assassin - and is grabbed from behind unexpectedly. A knife is held against her throat and a voice next to her ear growls "Now we will take care of your resignation as primary on a permanent basis."

Kal'shath instantly recognises the voice as Phobos's. His assassin must have distracted the guards to allow him to get into her quarters.

At that moment the first assassin drops to the floor, a knife sticking in his back and behind him appears Deimos. Phobos is startled.

Amina gets a telepathic message from Deimos to go up to the Queens quarters with a full security team. The team takes Phobos away from Kal'Shath and Deimos questions his motives. Phobos may know some important info.

Amina comforts the Queen and makes sure that he and the child are safe. She sends her team to search the Queen's quarters carefully once more after Deimos takes Phobos to the cells. Amina wonders what will become of Phobos. Will he rot in the cells after torture, or will he just be fed upon?

Astra is in hiding behind a wooden crate. All her drones have been killed, she knows she hasn't got a chance to escape but she is determined to fight to her last breath. The firing stops and a voice calls out to her "We know you're still there. Maybe we should try to talk about a few things."

"Talk?" Astra spits out the word. "Now you want to talk?"

"Yes, let's talk about why you and your friends are attacking an abandoned planet. What is your interest here?"

Astra knows that voice and it irritates her that she can't figure out where she has heard it before. "That is none of your business."

Stepping out of the shadows before her John Sheppard announces "Everything that happens to our allies, the Genii, is our business."

Astra gets up "Then it should be of interest to you that your allies are holding the commander of your other allies hostage."

Sheppard's eyes narrow "Todd? The Genii have taken Todd?"

At that moment a troop of Genii soldiers burst in "We have secured the area. No more Wraith but there is still a hiveship in orbit. In short they will send out a new wave of darts."

The familiar sound of approaching darts fills the air. "And here they are", Sheppard sighs. "Let's get lost. Do you still need to defend this planet or have you evacuated all? And do you by any chance hide a Wraith? Kind of big guy, shaggy hair, showy tattoo in the face? Does that ring a bell?"

The Genii leader's expression turns to ice. "What do you think? Do you really think we catch Wraith? What for? Keep them as pets? There definitely is no Wraith among the evacuees." Then he turns to look at Astra for the first time. "What about that thing? Why didn't you finish it off?"

Astra snarls at the man. Suddenly the shooting starts anew outside.

"The next wave has landed! We need to get out of here!" Sheppard yells. Bending forward to Astra he mutters "Run. Go back to your hive."

Astra hisses angrily "The last word is not spoken yet." Then she jumps up and climbs up on the crates, out of firing range. She doesn't get far, a stunner bolt hits her in the back and she looses consciousness.

When she wakes up again she is in a cell. It's dark and her eyes need some time to adjust. She is not alone in the cell, a figure is standing next to her. She gets up hastily and snarls, then she recognises the figure. "Apparantly now they have to rescue both of us", Todd says.

----------

Deimos is leading Phobos away to a cell, pretending to be calm.

"What a shame, Deimos. You could kill me now but you aren't allowed to", Phobos drawls. Deimos shows no reaction, he just stares coldly at Phobos. Phobos continues "You know, I'd never expected to see you again. I always thought you had joined your ancestors when I destroyed your hive." An evil grin spreads across Phobos's face.

"You don't need to provoke me. I will get my chance to kill you after the queen is finished with you", Deimos answers.

"Your queen is weak. My queen will become primary sooner or later." Phobos turns around to face Deimos. "Why don't you enter another queen in the competition?" Phobos grins nastily. "I gathered from your telepathic communications you have found yourself a female. Maybe I should take care of her as well so she won't have the chance to become queen herself some day."

With a furious roar Deimos strikes at Phobos who had anticipated that move and ducks, hitting Deimos knees. Deimos looses his balance, in the time he needs to steady himself Phobos has ran off. Cursing Deimos races after him, summoning all drones in the vicinity. To no use, Phobos has disappeared.

Dismayed Deimos heads for the queen's quarters to inform her of the escape and to receive his punishment.

March 24th, 2009, 08:21 AM
Kal'shath turns at Deimos's entrance. She can already guess what he has come about.

"You need not concern yourself with Phobos's escape," she tells him, "The second-in-command has apprihended him." She looks quizzically at Demios. "I'm surprised that you didn't, how should I put it, tkae care of him perminantly when you had the chance. It is what I would have done."

She can see the unease that still grips Deimos. There is nothing more that she can say for him, he must work it out on his own. But there is one thing that may ease his anger.

Kal'shath stands and turns to Amina, who has refused to leave her side since the near-sucessful attack.

"Amina, I want you to stay here and make sure no harm comes to my son." Kal'shath turns with a grim smile to Deimos. "I have informed the second-in-command to prospone the interigation until myself and my escourt have arrived. Care to join me?"

Kal'shath and Deimos arrive in the interigation cell. The second-in-command is already there, Phobos imprisoned between two drones. Kal'shath nods at him to continue. She wants to learn more about why this wraith whished for her death.

Something shifted behind her and it was only in the nick of time that she was able to duck and avoid being decapitated by the hidden assassin that was behind her. In the destraction, Phobos broke a hidden vial on the ground, causing thick white smoke to engulf the cell. Deimos attacked blindly, and was caught across the head by Phobos, invisable in the choking smoke.

"This is just the beguining," Kal'shath hears him hiss, "Soon, I will have your death."

Then there is silence.

When the smoke finally clears, Phobos is gone.

I need medical assistance in the interigation room at once, Kal'shath says telepathically.

"I hope the question in not too personal but what are you doing in my cell?" Todd asks.

Astra sinks to the floor, her back to the wall, and says miserably "Actually I came to rescue you. Didn't succeed though."

When Todd remains silent she continues "We tracked the hive which abducted you and after that we attacked the Genii planet but ran into the Lanteans who had come to the aid of the Genii. Apparantly the Lanteans didn't know the Genii hold you prisoner. I met John Sheppard and he seemed to be genuinely surprised."

Todd considers the news for a moment "That puts the Lanteans in a difficult situation. They are allied with the Genii and at the same time with us." He chuckles humourless "But we can hardly expect the Lanteans to come to our aid now."

"They'd let us rot here even if they knew where we were", Astra says, wrapping her arms around her knees. "What do the Genii want with us anyway? Are they going to experiment on us like the Lanteans?"

Todd shakes his head slowly "No, the Genii have found another use for us. I've gone through this once before and I'm not keen on repeating it. There is however a slim chance the Lanteans might help us if they could find out where we are, they could set our hive on the Genii without having to make an appearance themselves. So both their allies would be safe."

Astra looks up sceptically "Why should they do that?"

Todd answers "Because they have an incentive to maintain the alliance with us and I know at least one of the Lanteans who hates Genii prisons as much as me."

"I hope you are right", Astra sighs. She leans her head back to the wall. And I hope our hive is safe and all assassins have been caught by now. I wonder what Deimos is doing right now. Probably cursing me for being dumb enough to let myself get captured.

Draygon
March 24th, 2009, 12:09 PM
Kal'shath makes sure that Deimos and the second-in-command are seen to by the hive doctors, before returning to her quaters to check on Amina and Tral'shath. Thankfully, both are safe. She sends Amina to check with the Cheif Scientist if there has been any progress with locating Todd and, now she has discovered, Astra as well.

Kal'shath looks down at her son in his crib, peacfully asleep. She has an idea how to locate Todd, but it is risky and would leave her open to attack. But they are desperate.

She walks over to her bed and sits cross-legged upon it. Closing her eyes, she opens her mind....

---------
In the Genii cell. Todd feels the prickling at the back of his mind, indicating the psycic presances of another wraith mind. He stands still in the cell and opens his mind to Kal'sahth.

You have no idea how glad I am to find you, she tells him.

Todd chuckles to himself. I can guess, he answers.

Do you know your location? Is Astra with you?

She is with me and she is safe, he says, I was able to see the gate address of the planet the Genii took us to before-

A sharp burning pain from one of the Genii guards' prod-sticks breaks the tenuous mental transmission.

Amina is on the bridge and receives a transmission from the Lanteans. Sheppard has spotted Astra and believes that the Genii are capturing wraith again. He believes that Todd is there as well. They wish to have a temporary alliance with the hive in order to retrieve Todd and Astra. Amina gives this report to her Queen. Sheppard wishes for Kal'shath to respond as quickly as possible, since the Lanteans told the Genii not to do this anymore. Woolsey wishes to visit the hive and talk about this alliance with Kal'Shath.

Kal'shath blinks away the phantom pain that she experianced while mind-linked with Todd. At the back of ehr mind, she senses Amina contacting her. Summoning a wraith to guard her son while she is gone, Kal'shath walks to the bridge.

"What is it?" she asks Amina when she arrives. Amina nods to the screen and Kal'shath hisses with loathing.

"What do you want now, Lantians?" she demands, "Haven't you caused enough trouble?"

"We want to talk about a temporary alliance," replies Woolsey calmly in the face of Kal'shath's hostility.

"Do we not already have an alliance?" Kal'shath asks.

"This one would be... off the record."

"You mean you don't want anyone to know about it," replies Kal'shath. She conciders the proposition for a few moments. "All right, but we will discuss this on neutral ground, I'm not about to let him," she indicates McKay, who was hovering behind Sheppard, "onboard any of my hives."

With a nod to Amina, the gate address of a sutible redevous is transmitted.

"See you there," says Shepaprd jovially. Kalshath hisses as she cuts the transmisson.

"Amina," Kal'shath says, "can I speak with you for a moment?"

The Genii guard scolds his colleague for being so inconsiderate as to use his prod-stick on the Wraith. "What the hell were you thinking of?!" "Sorry, sir, but I thought we needed them hungry and a little zapping can't hurt to make them weak, can it?"
"If you make them hungry now they will feed on each other in lack of a human prisoner. Or maybe you'd like to volunteer...?" The guard's eyes widen in shock "No, sir! Definitely not!"

Both guards disappear behind a corner. Astra glances nervously at Todd "What did he mean: they need us hungry?"

Todd sighs heavily "We are meant to be used as torture instruments." He begins to pace up and down in the cell "I had contact with Kal'shath just a moment ago before the guards came. I nearly was able to tell her our location."

Astra is surprised "But we are too far away. I can't sense any other Wraith anywhere near. How is that possible for you to communicate over such a long distance?"

"It's very difficult and strenuous. And a special connection is needed. She is not only a queen - which makes her mind powerful - but she is also my mate."

Astra nods. "I see. What will happen now to us?"

Todd shrugs "As long as the Genii have no prisoner to interrogate we are relatively safe. Let us hope they won't find a reason to make us hungry." He stops pacing. "Don't worry. I'm sure Kal'shath will try again to contact me."

Kal'shath stands with Amina and the second-in-command at the redevous. It could well become a trap, which is why the second-in-command insisted on placing guards hidden around the clearing and tree-line.

Soon the figures of Sheppard's team and Woolsey making their way over to them. The haze above them indicates the presance of two of their cloaked vessals. Kal'shath and the others will have to be careful.

"Hiya Kenny," says Sheppard breezily to the second-in-command, "long time no see."

"I believed you were here to discuss a "secert" alliance," growled Kal'shath.

Woolsey cleared his throat before speaking.

"We have five locations that we believe to be possible holding sites," Woolsey says. He motions to McKay, who reluctantly hands over a tablet to the second-in-command, Kenny as Sheppard called him. Kal'shath couldn't help but find it amusing.

"That's the best we've got, lady," replied Sheppard. "The rest is up to you."

The Lanteans and the Hive agreed to work together to find the Commander and Astra. A few wraith, including Amina, were sent to Atlantis and sometimes went out to one of the planets with the Lanteans, to help with the search.

They eventually narrowed the search to one icy, world.

John: Now how are we going to find them in all of this ice?
Amina: Maybe we could modify our technology with
McKay: *interrupts* With the ancient mining machine we found. It will

Lorne: The Daedalus should be here soon, as well.

*The group walks off to hide behind a huge block of ice as to not be detected by any nearby Genii guards. They sit/partially stand up on the grooves and ridges jutting from the ice. Ronon is as far away from the group as possible, while Amina is between John and Teyla, who is trying her best not to get too close to the wraith woman as possible.*

Todd sits with his back to one of the walls in the cell.

"Commander?" asks Astra, "What are you doing-"

"I sense the presance of other wraith," he says, opening one yellow eye to look at her. "I was about to attempt to contact them."

Astra is puzzled. "Why can I not sense them?"

Todd sighs. "Because they are far away at best, and besides," he grunts as he sifts to get himself more comfortable, "there is a human saying about how hunger strengthans the mind. I personally have never found it that appealing."

Todd closes his eyes once again and attempts to contact the nearby wraith telepathically.

Mariellelita

"Sir, the Daedalus has just reached orbit." Lorne informs John.

"Good," John replies. "It seems our Genii friends have noticed, the security team seems to be beefing up."

Amina peeks around the ice and sees that the Genii have indeed sent in reinforcements. "Don't worry, human. The hive is in orbit as well. The Queen is sending in the darts and..."

"And what, wraith?" Ronon says, suspicious of the wraith stopping in mid-sentence.

"I am sensing a wraith nearby. It must be the commander, since I am sensing a male..." Amina continues.

John gets up and starts watching the Genii shooting at the incoming darts. "That's good, it means Todd is alive."

"John, the Lantean troops are here." Teyla tells Sheppard. The Lantean soldiers are heading towards the cave and begin to overpower the Genii as the darts fly around shooting at more Genii. One dart places a troop of wraith near the entrance and they begin to enter as more Lanteans come closer to join them.

"Let's go." John orders.

Amina doesn't like the fact that he thinks that he is in charge of her as well, but doesn't say anything as she, John, Teyla, Ronon, McKay, and Lorne run towards the entrance to meet their allies.

"Human. There are also drones by the "stargate". They will preven more Genii from coming through and joining their comrades. All we have to deal with are the ones in the underground base." Amina tells John.

Sheppard acknowledges her and the group walks into the cave. Lorne whips out the life signs detector as the human and wraith soldiers in front of them clear the way of any Genii threat. "Sir, there are two wraith life signs a couple of kilometers....this way."

"He is right." Amina says as she closes her eyes and breathes out slowly. "I can sense the wraith presence more clearly now."

"Commander, is that you." Amina asks.

A couple of seconds go by until she receives a reply.

"Amina! It is you. Come quickly. Astra and I are growing weak. We need to feed, soon!" Todd tells her. "How is the Queen? And my son?"

"Don't worry, they are fine. It took us a while, but we finally located you. She was strong during the whole ordeal."

"What are you doing? Hey! What's up?" Mckay interrupts.

Amina hisses at McKay again. "I was talking with the commander. He is indeed here. We must get to him quickly!"

With that, the team runs toward the cells where Todd is located. A Genii soldier tried to sneak up on them, but Amina stunned and fed on him quickly.

"Ugh, did you have to do that." McKay complained.

"Yes, I needed the strength." Amina replies smirking dangerously at Rodney before continuing the journey to the cells.

Mariellelita

The team reaches the cell and see Astra and Todd lying down. They seem weakened.

Amina shoots at the lock, and the doors open. Todd smirks as he gets up to greet Amina, but stops to gape at the Lanteans as John appears.

"Colonel Sheppard-ah. I didn't know you would be here to rescue me and a fellow wraith." Todd remarks.

John tries to fein disinterest. "It just didn't seem right for the Genii to lock you up again, especially since I went through all of that trouble to set ourselves free the last time."

"Yeah, yeah. We are glad to see you too. Can we go now before something happens, say, the Genii dial the gate and manage to get through the wraith barracade?" McKay yelled from down the hall. He and Ronon were looking out for enemies coming their way.

With Astra limping around Amina's shoulders and Todd on Sheppard's, the team walk towards the entrance of the cave. The wraith and Lantan soldiers followed them back up immediately.

The wraith by the gate and in other locations are swooped up by the darts as they are recalled to the hive. Similarly, the Lanteans return to the Daedalus. The only ones left on the planet are John, McKay, Ronon, Teyla, and Lorne by their puddlejumper and the three wraith.

"John Sheppard-ah. I would like to thank you again for your...assistance. Without you, I would never have another chance to see my mate and child again." Todd says.

John nods towards Todd with shocked eyes. He didn't know Todd was a father already!!! Teyla congratulates the wraith while Rodney walks on the puddlejumper after her, trying to burn the image from his mind. After the Lanteans leave, Amina and the others hear an explosian and human voices. It was the Genii!

"Well, Ladies. I take it that this is our cue to leave." Todd jokes as a dart comes by and beams them to safety.

Moments later, they are back on the hive. Todd rushes to the throne room to greet Kal'Shath while Amina takes Astra to the infirmary. Amina is glad that Astra is ok, since she sees her as a sort of older sister. Soon, the hive jumps into hyperspace and away from the cold, ice world.

Kal'shath senses Todd before she sees him. He enters the throne room at a run. Kal'shath has already risen to greet him, which is why she is able to catch him before he falls to the ground.

"Idiot," she hisses at him affectinatly, "didn't you think to feed first?"

Todd chuckled weakly. "Am I not allowed to wish to see my mate and child again after my return?"

"Feed first," orders Kal'shath, though she was just as egear to see her mate again.

Taking his arm, she leads him out of the throne room and towards the infirmary. She wants to make sure that Todd gets a decant meal, as well as visit Astra.

Astra leaves the infirmary. She has fed and feels already better. I hate to be in the infirmary. I can better recover in my own quarters. In my own bed. No longer sleeping on the floor of a stinking cell. That reminds me - I need to wash.

Astra meets Kal'shath and Todd on the corridor. Todd still looks weak. Astra tells Kal'shath that she's glad to be home again. Kal'shath smiles at Astra but is distracted by Todd who stumbles and nearly falls down. Kal'shath gives him a worried look. "We'll see to it you get a meal now. Excuse us, Astra. We will talk tomorrow, shall we?"

"As you wish. You have to take care of your mate now." Astra watches the two of them walk past her. To have someone who cares and helps, that's wonderful. A mate. Astra walks to her quarters and contacts Deimos on the way. Where are you? She senses his presence but he is reluctant to answer. He is in a strange mood. Don't you want to greet me? she asks disappointed.

Of course I want to greet you. I - it's just - I'm - I don't want to bother you with my problems now after all you've gone through.

What problems?, Astra frowns.

Phobos escaped. Two times. I failed completely... Maybe I should leave the hive.

I wish to see you. Now. Meet me at my quarters. Please. If you don't come to me I'll let you bring by drones. You won't leave this hive.

Now I know why I missed you. I'll be with you in half an hour, he answers still tense but with a smile.

Astra arrives at her quarters and showers and changes her clothes. Ah, to feel civilised again. She leans back on her bed and reads a couple of status reports to catch up with her duties as Keeper.

Amina senses that all is right in the hive and returns to her quarters. She has been so alone since her mate disappeared and died, so she has tried to fill the void in her life with work.

After showering, she walks towards the labs to help the main scientist with an experiment, but receives a message from the second-in-command.

"Yes, 'Kenny'." Amina teased.

Come quick, it seems as though our current course will intersect with another hive in a few hours. I don't know if they are allies or not. You should also start preparing the drones. Kenny stated.

*The Chief Scientist is elated that Todd and Astra are back safe and sound. He is hard at work on new security protocols to make sure that intruders into the hive will be detected quickly and dealt with.*

March 27th, 2009, 04:53 AM
Astra finds it hard to concentrate on her status reports. She is tense with anticipation as the door chime sounds. She opens the door for Deimos who looks depressed but manages to smile at her.

Astra takes a deep breath "Come in then and tell me: where did you get that ridiculous idea of wanting to leave the hive? You let Phobos escape, so what? That could have happened to anyone since he is so dangerous."

He comes in and the door closes again. Indecisive he stops at one step distance from Astra. "Yes, but I knew he is dangerous right from the beginning and I made the mistake to let him provoke me. He will come back, that's for sure. Not only because of Kal'shath but because of me as well. The hive would be better off without me. I could lure Phobos away from the hive."

"I won't allow that", Astra states calmy. She swallows. "But I wouldn't have thought it would be so easy for you to just turn your back on us. On me." She looks away. "Maybe you should go to your own quarters now before rumours spread that you are spending an unseemly amount of time with me alone."

A hurt look crosses his face. "Do you really think leaving you will be easy for me? You mean much to me." Suddenly he growls and shakes his head. "This has never happened before to me. In all my life I've never met someone like you. Someone I could love. I want you to be safe and if I can accomplish that by luring Phobos away from you I will do that." Astra looks at him with an unreadable expression on her face. He turns away "You are right, I should go now before something happens we might both regret."

He walks to the door but is stopped by Astra who has stepped in front of him. She wraps her arms around his neck and whispers in his ear "There is only one thing I regret. That thing is that I haven't done this much earlier." She kisses him slightly.

"Astra, don't", he says gently. "I will leave you, don't make it any harder for us than it already is." She gives him a sad look "How much harder can it get anyway?" she asks. He looks back at her puzzled "You really don't know, do you?" Realisation dawns in his mind while she turns away blushing. So that's why she was so timid. He puts a hand to her chin and carefully turns her face back to him.

Astra summons her courage and closes her eyes. "Stay here tonight and give me a memory I might regret. I'd rather have the prospect of possible regret than facing the lifelong question of what could have been."

She looks questioningly up to him. He just looks back at her for a long moment, thinking. After what felt like an eternity to Astra he simply nods and bends down to kiss her.

Kal'shath is more than a little disgruntaled about being forced to remain in her chambers with Tral'shath just because they are approching another hive ship.

"I should be there," she tells Todd, but he is having none of it.

"Judging from our last encounters with other hive ships, someone wants you dead," replied Todd forcefully. After he was able to feed and regain his strength, he also regained his old stubbornness.

"Am I Queen or not?" demanded Kal'shath.

"Yes you are, but you are also my mate and I refuse to risk putting your safety in jepordy any more than I have to!" retored Todd.

Kal'shath fumed for a few moments, before having an idea.

"Then let Amina or Astra act as my personal bodyguard." She held up her hand to stop Todd from interupting. "No, listen. Both are loyal and have proved their loyalty on many occasions. It couldn't hurt to ask them, now would it?"

Todd pinched the bridge of his nose. "Alright, I will ask them. But until I do, please, remain here."

Kal'shath reluctantly agreed and Todd left to ask the two female wraith about her proposition.

Draco-Stellaris
March 27th, 2009, 12:04 PM
Some time later Astra enters the queen's chambers. "I am here to act as your personal bodyguard. The second-in-command has ordered me to the bridge but I've done all necessary settings for the hull strength and am not needed there at the moment.

Kal'shath nods "Then I am glad to be no longer confined to this rooms. Tral'shath is fast asleep and there are drones outside to stand guard so I can leave him for a while."

Both leave the queen's quarters.

Draygon
March 27th, 2009, 12:31 PM
Kal'shath walks towards the bridge, with Astra in toe. She doesn't say it, but Kal'shath can sense the change in Astra. There was no point in bringing it up though. Astra was loyal and Kal'shath had compleate faith in her.

When the two of them arrived on the bridge, she could see Todd standing with his back to her and Kenny (there was no getting around the fact, the whole hive had found out by now and decided to adopt the name) by one of the contol systems. Kal'shath could sense Todd's disaproval and pent-up annoyance at her presance.

Get over it, she scowled telepathically, what exactly is going to go wrong by my being there to speak to this hive?

Would you like me to provide you with a list? he replied, I would feel much better if you remined in your chambers with our son.

Nothing is going to happen, Kal'shath assured him. She moved to take her place.

"If you don't mind me asking," Astra said, "what was all that about?"

"Nothing to worry about," replied Kal'shath with a small smile.

Draco-Stellaris
March 27th, 2009, 12:39 PM
Astra could almost feel the tension between Kal'shath and Todd in the air as they entered the bridge but both had shielded their minds and it would have been impolite to listen in to their conversation but obviously Todd didn't like Kal'shath to be so exposed to a potential attack. Better not interfere, she thinks.

Astra waits patiently beside Kal'shath for the unknown hiveship to announce their intentions.

"It is alright," says Kal'shath, "they are friends." Although she was captured by the Lantians at the time, the old commander had made sure to inform her as the new Queen about all their allies an dsecrets that not even a Keeper was meant to know.

Meant to.

"Is there something that you require?" asked Todd.

They waited for an answer.

Mariellelita
March 28th, 2009, 05:10 AM
Amina had never seen these wraith before and wondered who they were. Reading a fellow's wraith mind, she can't remember a "black hole outpost".

"My Queen, who are these people?" Amina asked Kal'Shath in a telepathic message.

Amina had confidence that the Queen and Commander would know how to diffuse the tension out of the situation and make this communication as peaceful as it could be. They still didn't have enough drones to fully battle another hive!

"Actually, there is." The old commander responded. "I wish to bring our hives together in an alliance. It seems that on old "friend" of mine is determined to intrude on our feeding grounds. In an alliance with a strong Queen, he and his vagrants will cease these cullings and respect our territorial boundaries."

Todd looked toward Kal'Shath. The old commander's request seemed odd, and he had an untrustworthy air about him.

"And was I the first Queen that you sought out? Or are you just going from hive to hive begging for assistance?" Kal'Shath answered back.

The old commander chuckled. "Wouldn't it be better for us to meet face to face to discuss these matters?"

Draygon
March 30th, 2009, 09:32 AM
Todd immediatly linked with Kal'shath telepathically.

I do not like this, he told her, his motives are questionable to say the least.

But he was an old ally to my former hive, Kal'shath told Todd, I agree, it is... disconcerting that he contact me in this way, but we cannot deny his meeting.

Yes we could!

No not act like a child, scolded Kal'shath, I am not suggesting that I go alone. Feel free to attend if you worry so.

Todd growled audibally, but Kal'shath igonored his displeasure.

"I will meet with you," announced Kal'shath, "but on a planet of my choiceing."

She waited to see how her discission would be taken.

Dr. Daedalus
April 1st, 2009, 05:22 PM
*The other hive Commander agrees to Kal'shath's proposal. He says that he has nothing to hide and is loyal. He then bows and ends the transmisson.*

Mariellelita
April 2nd, 2009, 08:14 AM
Amina has a bad feeling about all of this and goes to her quarters to meditate. On the way, she meets a fellow scientist, Sami, and talks about the issue. Sami agrees that it seems suspicious, and before they finish the conversation, they receive a telepathic message from the Queen to all of her subjects.

Kalshath: As you all know, we will be meeting the ex-commander soon. The meeting will take place on a nearby planet, M-722. Although I hope the meeting will be peaceful, we can never be too careful. I need you all to prepare the hive and our supplies anyway.

Amina, Sami, and the other wraith prepare the hive and they soon arrive on M-722. Amina stays behind in the hive, but watches and wishes the Queen farewell as she boards her transport with the Commander, Astra, and others to the planet.

Draygon
April 2nd, 2009, 08:20 AM
On the planet's surface, Kal'shath has to growl at Todd in order to make him stop edging his hand towards his stunner.

"Will you calm down?" she demanded, exasperated by his behaviour. "Nothing is going to go wrong. You promised that you would behave."

Todd bows his head. "Forgive me, but I am merely concered for your safety."

Before Kal'shath can respond to this remark, Astra hisses by her side, drawing her knife.

"It's a trap!" she shouts, before they are all gunned down by stunner fire.

Dr. Daedalus
April 2nd, 2009, 09:32 AM
*The Chief Scientist is enraged as he views the sensors indicating stunner fire on the surface. "Can it be that there are so many disloyal Wraith in the galaxy?" He asks. He then orders all darts launched and tells some of the forces that are guarding the gate to procede to the meeting site to help our delagation.*

Mariellelita
April 2nd, 2009, 09:59 AM
Amina leaves Sami in the lab after hearing about the incident and rushes to the darts. She and the other dart pilots rush down to the planet to guard the gate and beam down some troops.

"Ma'am." Says one of the dart pilots trying to get Amina's attention. "I think I see them a few kilometers away from the gate. I'll rush to beam the up"

"You do that. And...." Amina stops her command mid sentence after seeing the ex-commander and some of his followers surround the Queen and the others. The followers seem weird, they look like food, but Amina can sense their telepathic presence. An enemy dart comes by and swoops up the enemy troops and the Queen, Todd, and Astra.

"Cull the ex-commander and track the enemy darts!" Amina commands. Moments later, she sees another enemy dart coming and start to beam up the ex-commander. Before it comes, though, Amina sees Michael come around and both he and the ex-commander are beamed away.

"The Abomination!" Amina whispers, astonished at his presence. "I thought he was dead or something!"

"Amina! You and the others hurry back to the hive! Another hive has just come out of hyperspace!" The chief scientist tells the young woman.

"Amina! You and the others hurry back to the hive! Another hive has just come out of hyperspace!" The chief scientist tells the young woman.

As Amina exits the atmosphere and flys into space, she sees the other hive hovering a great distance away from her hive. It isn't firing any weapons, but the darts that picked the the enemy is flying towards it.

"Chief Scientist, two other pilots and myself will try to blend in with the wave of enemy darts to infiltrate their hive. I can then send a signal if..." Amina begins.

"Too late, Amina. They have left. We will have to wait until they exit hyperspace to track them with their residual subspace radiation." Says the Chief Scientist. "I'm recalling the darts."

As Amina enters and lands her dart, she senses the distress of the hive. Wraith are rushing back and forth in a frenzy. The absence of a Queen is making everyone testy and...the baby! Amina rushed to take care of the child and comfort him. He may have been little, but the knew something was off and was stressing out with his fellow crew members.

Groggily, Kal'shath regains conciousness. She feels hands steady her as she attempts to stand.

"Astra?" she croaks.

"Yes," replies Astra, "I'm here. But I do not know where they have taken the commander."

Kal'shath growls. She had been willing to trust their old ally! Why had he betrayed them? Both the wraith females hear the sound of approching footsteps. Kal'shath's eyes widen in instant hatread as their captor approches.

"Abomination," she hisses. The wraith-hybrid raised an eyebrow.

"I would expect better respect from someone who's mate I hold captive elsewhere on my hive. One word from me, and he will be killed instantly. The same threat applies for him." He stared at her a few moments longer, a smile playing upon his lips.

"What is so amusing?" snapped Astra.

"I merely wondered wheather your Queen realised the reward that has been offered for her head," Michael mused. "It would certianly be of interest to me."

Kal'shath breathed heavily, trying ot keep her emotions in check. She was wanted dead. By who? Why? She didn't understand and feared what the Abomination had planned for her and the others.

Amina was in the Queen's quarters putting the kid in his crib an hour after the incident, when she was contacted telepathically by the second in command. After assigning a drone to babysit, she goes to the bridge to see what is happening.

Second: Amina, glad you are here. The hive of the Ex-Commander (EC) has finally dropped out of hyperspace.

Amina: Good, we can find a signal from the Commander's subcutaneous subspace transmitter now, no?

Chief Scientist: Yes, but it is fading quickly. We need to follow now.

Second: *commands the crew to jump into hyperspace and follow the signal*

Amina: *to the SIC* Sir, what do you think the Abomination could be up to?

Second: There is no telling. The last I heard, he was creating creatures, then turning food into hybrids, and now this. He must be stopped.

Amina: Their target must have been the Commander and/or the Queen specifically. Does anyone know of any enemies of the Queen?

Chief Scientist: No, but maybe it may have something to do with Queen Inga's absence...

*The Chief Scientist says that he thought that the Atlantians had finally rid the galaxy of the Abomination a few months ago. He speculates that the Abomination must have cloned himself to make sure that his plans would procede. At that point our hive drops out of hyperspace at the last known position of Todd and the enemy hive is no where to be seen. "They must have jumped back into hyperspace," Amina remarks with disappointment. The Chief Scientist then says that we need to inform the Atlantians of the Abomination's return. They will be more than happy to help us because the only thing they hate more than Wraith is the Abomination.*

At that point our hive drops out of hyperspace at the last known position of Todd and the enemy hive is no where to be seen. "They must have jumped back into hyperspace," Amina remarks with disappointment. The Chief Scientist then says that we need to inform the Atlantians of the Abomination's return. They will be more than happy to help us because the only thing they hate more than Wraith is the Abomination.*

Second: "As the temporary leader of the hive, I say we go to the Lanteans immediately. They created that thing, they should get rid of it."

The crew agrees and sets a course towards Atlantis. Amina is slightly pissed. They were having to rely on the Lanteans a lot lately, maybe it was a curse from the Ancestral Queen?

On the enemy hive, the Ex-commander sat on the throne. Michael walked into the room and was slightly disturbed.

"So, hybrid, when do you plan on fulfulling your end of the bargain. I brought you your Queen, and her mate as well." The EC asked.

On the enemy hive, the Ex-commander sat on the throne. Michael walked into the room and was slightly disturbed at his manner.

"So, hybrid, when do you plan on fulfulling your end of the bargain? I brought you your Queen, and her mate as well." The EC asked.

Pushing down his feelings of hate and contempt for the time being, Michael answered. "Right now, of course. This tablet holds the key to the location of Lantea."

The EC was ecstatic. He would finally know the location of the city of the ancients, and by capturing the city, he could gain recognition from the most powerful Queen in the galaxy and her alliance. He didn't want to have the Abomination give him the info, but he knew Kal'shath herself would never give it to him willingly, so it was easier this way.

Walking down from the throne and approaching the Abomination, the EC walked and grabbed the organic tablet and briefly glanced it over, but only to drop it and gasp as he felt a sharp pain in his back.

"How dare you...you.." gargles the EC as his lungs fill with blood and he falls down with a thud, dying.

"Such a fool, you should have known by now that I am not to be trusted. Why do you think the Queens wish for my destruction?" Michael says with a creepy grin.

After the EC dies, Michael goes down to the lab, mentally instructing his newly hybrid turned wraith crew to watch over the hive as he worked. Michael was proud to be able to not only have a serum to create humans into hybrids, but one that would turn full wraith into one as well.

Kal'shath and Astra sat in their shared cell in silence. Kal'shath had tried to contact Todd telepathically, but something had blocked her attempts. She was growing more and moer concerned for her mate...

Footsteps approched. Astra and Kal'shath watched as two hybrids dragged the dead body of the traitorus commander.

"It appears that he learnt the hard way what happens to those that aid the Abomination," said Kal'shath quietly.

Now she was even more convinced that they were unlikely to leave this place alive.

The hive was now en route to Atlantis.

"Sir, we are almost there. When do you want us to drop out of hyperspace?" A young tech asked the Second-in-Command. He knew that the humans tended to be very paranoid and easily frightened, and thought it was a good idea to stop the hive to give the Lanteans time to talk with them before they approached.

"Take us out...now." Said the Second. "And try to set up communications."

A couple of seconds went by, but then the face of Sheppard, Woolsey, and the others were on the screen.

"Ah, you again. I take it you aren't here 'cause you missed us so much." said Sheppard.

"No, human Sheppard. We have come, to-" the Second trailed off. He didn't like asking food for help, even though he needed to.

"We need your help in retreiving our people. They were taken away by the Abomination that you created." Amina said. "It is because of this fact that you must help us, since you released him out and he is now threatening the peace of the galaxy."

"He isn't the only one." McKay mumbled. The Chief Scientist glared at him.

Woolsey decided to step in to cover for Rodney's rude statement. "So, who was taken? Some scientist who was, doing some important research?"

"Our Commander and Queen. Also, another who used to serve as a keeper. I don't believe she was a target as well, she was just in the wrong place at the wrong time." The Second replied.

"What is up with Todd and getting kidnapped?" Sheppard sighed in disbelief. "Look, it is sad that Todd and the Queen is gone, but we aren't going to help just because he kidnapped some fellow wraith."

"He is not a fellow wraith. He is an Abomination and a rogue. He must be stopped, and you have no choice in the matter." Amina yelled.

"And why is that?" Woolsey said. He didn't want his people fighting around with Michael and the Wraith just for any old reason.

"Because." The Chief Scientist said ominously "My crew had gathered intel that his plans yet again involve the humans of this galaxy as well."

*On Atlantis a subspace communication has been put up on the main screen and the team gathers around it. "Hello George," Shepard remarks. The Chief Scientist quashes his anger at being called that and says, "Listen to me Shepard. The Abomination has returned and kidnapped my Queen, Todd, and Astra." "Who is this Abomination? McKay asks. "You know him as Michael." "That is impossible," Teyla says, "We killed him." "Apparently he cloned himself before coming to your city. Now are you going to help us find him, kill him, and rescue Todd and the others?" Teyla appears ready to go but Woolsey is skeptical. He says, "How do we know that you did not just make this story about Michael up?" "You don't but can you really afford to take the risk of ignoring us," says the Chief Scientist. Woolsey considers for a moment and then agrees to help us find our kidnapped people.*

Michael walked from his lab to the prison cells. As he walked closer, the two wraith females inside stood up straight and glared at him. The utterly refused to show weakness to him.

"What do you want?" The Queen asked in a suspicious manner. Her eyes darted from his face to the small box he carried. She closed her eyes and breathed out, but opened them again and hissed in fury.

"I see that the serum is working better than I hoped." Michael said. The females gave him questioning looks, which made him laugh quietly.

"You have been trying to communicate with your mate, but you are wasting your energy. He cannot hear you, as your mental abilities have been severely weakened to the point that it is confined to this room." Michael added.

Michael lifted up the flap to the box he carried and pulled out a vial containing a blood red liquid. "I admit, my earlier attempts at dealing with my wraith problems were crude and inefficient, but this, will put an end to the wraith and the grip that they hold on the galaxy forever."

Kal'shath struggles to keep her breathing under control. Yet again she was going to be used for experimentation! Michael suddenly looked at her quizzically, as if he had sensed her thought, but that would be impossible! Surely the Abomination no longer possesed the wraith telepathic skills.

Schooling her features into one of quiet dignaty she stared back at the wraith-hybrid, wariy at what he planned for herself and Astra.

Mariellelita
April 5th, 2009, 04:54 AM
"Don't look so surprised. You should know of the dangers that the life of a Queen entails, Kal'shath" Michael mocked.

Astra walked up towards the front of the cell to the point that the webbed gate was the only thing preventing her from rushing up and choking the Abomination herself. "You said that a price had been placed on the Queen's head? What has that got to do with ending the Wraith?"

Michael put on an innocent face as he locked eyes with Astra.

"Surely, you haven't noticed the minor changes in your body."

"What nonsense are you speaking of?" Astra asked, only to turn around and hear a gasp from the Queen.

Kal'Shath was looking at her hand, her feeding hand. This wasn't the only thing Astra noticed. The extrasensory slits on the Queen's face were diminishing and her pupils became more rounded.

Kal'Shath looked up at Astra and gasped. "Programmer, you, you have changed as well!"

The two women rushed to the edge of the cell and poked an arm out from a space in order to try to reach Michael.

"Do as you wish, ladies, but you cannot harm me in your weakened state. This formula has managed to change minor aspects of your features, but when I perfect it..." Michael said. He grinned before turning around and walking off. Four hybrid guards walked in the area to make sure they couldn't escape.

Rushing towards his lab, Michael was glad that his serum had even managed to change the women a little. He noted from earlier research and data that one of his clones stole from Lantea that the Queens didn't respond to the treatment that Doctor Beckett had made. In an earlier version of Beckett's treatment, one female reversed back into the ancestral bug state instead of becoming more human.

All he had to do was fix the few kinks in his serum, and the two women would be human in no time.

"Abomination! Your plan will never succeed! I will escape!" Todd yelled from the cell that was in Michael's lab. "What do you hope to gain from this?!"

Michael ignored the Commander as he resumed his work. He didn't have anything personal against Kal'shath personally. He thought she was a beautiful Queen, but he needed the destruction of all of the Queens to continue with his plan.

Draygon
April 5th, 2009, 05:06 AM
Todd snarled at the Abomination. He hadn't been able to sense Kal'shath or Astra since he had awoken. The logical explination if he was dealing with wraith would be that they were dead, but with the Abomination, it was impossible to tell. Either way, he would avange them.

Why the creature kept him, he did not know. Probably to gloat about his triumph over the wraith to one of his hated enemy. That would be his greatest mistake. Todd continued to watch the Abomination continue his work, and planned his escape.

****

Kal'shath sat on the floor of her cell as Astra paced back and forth.

"Do not waste your energy," she told Astra, "we must stay strong."

"But my Queen," pleaded Astra, "what the Aboniation has done-"

Kal'shath's head snapped up, her eyes bright with an idea. Something that she remembered overhearing during her incaseration on Atlantis.

"The Abomination has not perfected the process," she mused out loud, "but the Lantians have already succeded where he has failed."

Astra looked at her puzzled. "I know that. The Lantians turned Queen Inga into a human when they captured you both. How does that help us now?"

Kal'shath motioned silently towards the guards outside their cell. Astra looked, brows furrowed, then she realised what Kal'shath was doing. Now they had to wait and see if Michael rose to the bait.

Amina stood at one of the consoles on the bridge. Now, that they had the Lanteans attention, they could now safely head towards the planet to orbit it. Dutifully, she awaited orders from the Chief Scientist and the Second in Command to see what would happen next.

Dr. Daedalus
April 6th, 2009, 06:13 PM
*The hive drops out of hyperspace over New Lantia. As they establish orbit a lone puddle jumper comes up from Atlantis and enters the dart bay. A few minutes later the Chief Scientist, Kenny, Amina, Raziel, and the Atlantis team sit in the hive's main conference room. Sheppard remarks that he has never seen Raziel before and asks what he does on the hive. The Chief Scientist tells him that Raziel is a Wraith king. Basically he is the chief of all the warriors. Sheppard nods in understanding, for once seeing something in common with a Wraith. Kenny begins by explaining exactly what happened and what we need to do to remedy the situation. Michael must still have spies on human worlds. What we need to do is capture one of these spies and get him to reveal Michael's location. Once Michael’s location is known we must move quickly. Since there is a good possibility that Michael's location is days away from the hive the Chief Scientist suggests using the Daedalus to intercept Michael's hive. Woolsey immediately objects to that, saying that would give us the opportunity to take it over again. The Chief Scientist says that only Kenny, himself, and Amina need to be on the Daedalus and we will be unarmed. When we near Michael's hive we will drop out of hyperspace and take a cloaked jumper the rest of the way. Once there we can sabotage the ship, rescue the captives, escape in the jumper, and then call in the Daedalus to finish Michael off. Ronon likes this idea because it will give him a chance to kill Michael himself. McKay says that this would also be a great opportunity to find out the extent of Michael's plans and if there are any more clones. Woolsey agrees. Atlantis will start sending teams to former Michael hideouts ASAP and detain any suspicious persons.*

Kal'shath and Astra continue to langish in their cell. From time to time, a hybrid would attmept to leave them food. Human food. Each time, the two wraith females had refused to accept the meals, knocking the bowl from the hybrid's hands or simple just ignoring it.

"Tell your master," Kal'shath growls at one, "that we will not submit to his games! We will starve before that time!"

The hybrid leaves. Probably to inform his master, Kal'shath thinks. She is not sure how much longer she and Astra will be able to resist the Abomination. Kal'shath knows that the others will not abondon them to this fate. She is confidate that they will find them.

One thing she is uncertain of though, is in what state they will be in when the hive does arrive to rescue them...

*Later on a abandoned human world a small (5) group of mercenaries are rushing towards the gate with the Atlantis team (Sheppard, McKay, Ronon, and Teyla) in hot pursuit. The leader of the mercenaries attempts to dial the gate but he is stunned by Ronon. The rest of the mercenaries turn around and try to fire back at the team but they are immediately taken out. The team then dials the gate to Atlantis and takes the lone survivor of the engagment through the gate.*

A few hours later

*The mercenary is in the Atlantis brig surrounded by Colonel Sheppard, Mr. Woolsey, and Ronon. They have been trying to make him talk but to no avail. Just then the door opens and the Chief Scientist plus Kenny walk into the room. Kenny asks Sheppard if they have learned anything and Sheppard nods no. The Chief Scientist turns to Kenny and asks if he may begin? Kenny nods yes and the Chief Scientist turns and starts feeding on the prisoner. The guards raise their weapons but Woolsey orders them to back down. A little while later the Chief Scientist has finished feeding on and restoring the mercenary. The mercenary cries out that he will tell them anything just don't let that Wraith feed on him again. The Chief Scientist smiles and nods at Sheppard who (looking disgusted) then asks the mercenary to tell them where Michael is....*

"I see you two haven't been eating." Michael says as he walks to the cell. "I'm sure you must be starving."

Kalshath and Astra give ask him what he wants now.

"Just to check up on your progress, and to administer the final shots. I would have liked to wait a while, but there has been a sudden change in plans." Michael says.

A hybrid stuns the Queen and Astra, while others take them to another of Michael's lab (one that Todd isn't in) and straps them to medical tables. Michael takes initial samples and then injects them with more of the serum.

"Sir, we are a day away from the intercept point. He is asking how are prisoners are doing." a hybrid tells Michael. "Also, we have been monitoring the sector for a while. It seems that the Lanteans are still on our trail."

Michael hisses as continues his lab work.

Phobos paces the bridge of his ship impatiently. He snarls at a technician "Still no news? Why does he refuse to answer?" He spits out the word "he" as if the person he's referring to wasn't worthy of the "he" and should rather be titled as "it".

"He has had enough time to perform his little experiments on the Queen. I never should have listened to him. It would have been quicker and safer to finish her off my way." He takes a deep breath. "At least if she comes to this ship in human form my Queen will be granted the pleasure of killing Kal'shath herself. My Queen will surely reward me for that."

A cruel smile spreads over his face. He turns to the technician again. "Inform me at once if the Abomination should make contact", then he leaves the bridge.

Astra feels dizzy and confused. She can hear vioces coming from far off. She opens an eye hesitantly. The light stings. She seems to be strapped to a table of some sort. She feels one of the straps binding her to the table is a bit loose and tentatively wiggles her hand. She might be able to free herself if only she was alone in the room.

Turning her head slightly she can see Kal'shath lying on a table beside her, still unconscious. She also sees the Abomination and one of his helpers, the helper leaves the room. This might be her chance to escape. The Abomination has turned his back to her, working on his foul test results. Astra slips her hand out of the strap and gets up slowly and quietly, freeing her other hand. She stands up and instantly feels weak. Why has he done this to us? She looks round for a weapon and finds the stunner which the helper has left lying on a work bench nearby. Stealthily she moves over and takes the stunner, using it on the Abomination. He collapses onto the ground.

Astra quickly frees Kal'shath who is regaining her consciousness. "We're free? Then we need to find my mate and call for help."

"What about him?", Astra asks, pointing to the Abomination.

Dr. Daedalus
April 10th, 2009, 03:55 PM
"What about him?", Astra asks, pointing to the Abomination.

*As they start to leave the lab they hear footsteps approaching. Astra and Kal'shath hide next to the door ready to pounce on anybody who comes in. The door opens.............to reveal the Chief Scientist, Dr. McKay, Deimos, and Teyla! Astra and Kal'shath breath a sigh of relief and ask the Chief Scientist how he got here. The Chief Scientist explains that the Atlantians sent a decoy jumper to fool the Abomination's troops into opening the dart bay doors. "Once we got inside via a cloaked jumper it was easy to locate you." He says. He tells them that Kenny, Amina, Ronon, and Colonel Sheppard are rescuing Todd as we speak. We are to meet them back at the jumper. When Astra informs him that the Abomination has been performing experiments on them he turns to the now awake Abomination and stabs him in the heart. Just then McKay announces that he has downloaded everything he can from the database. After that the rescued and the rescuers hurry back to the jumper. At the moment they arrive the second team appear with hybrids on their tail. Sheppard and Kenny are carrying Todd while Ronon and Amina are firing back at their pursuers. While the rest of the rescue team provide cover fire Amina and Ronon run into the jumper. Then Sheppard gets into the pilot seat and guns the engines. The jumper closes up and flies toward the dart bay doors. It unleashes a flurry of drones and breaks through. Sheppard then contacts the Daedalus and tells them its time to "kick behind." Just then a hyperspace window opens revealing the Daedalus coming in guns blazing. Just as Michael's hive opens fire another hyperspace window opens revealing another hive. Deimos then exclaims, "Its Phobos!" The hive then opens fire on the Daedalus.....*

Mariellelita
April 10th, 2009, 04:50 PM
*off topic* nooo, my character is dead! :(*on topic*

"What is he doing here?" Deimos asks.

"I was reading over some of Michael's files that human McKay managed to steal, and it seems that Michael was planning on backstabbing Phobos. Phobos wanted our Queen for some reason, and Michael was going to use her to lure him and his Queen out in order to kill him and convert their hive into hybrids." Amina said.

"So, Michael found a way to turn wraith into hybrids, and was using your Queen and other wraith as test subjects in order to perfect it?" McKay asks. "He is sicker that I thought."

"Well, your kind started it first." Amina replied.

Sheppard manages to fly the jumper into the docking bay of the Daedalus. All leave the jumper and head straight towards the bridge.

"We didn't come here to fight, just to destroy Michael and bring back the prisoners. Let's leave." Caldwell instructs his crew. He didn't believe in getting involved with hive politics.

Before the Daedalus leaves though, Kalshath's hive arrives.....

Draygon
April 12th, 2009, 03:00 AM
The arrival of the hive seemed to spook Phobos, as his ship opened a hyperspace window and fled the battle.

Kal'shath was still attempting to get her head around what is happening. But she cannot show her confusion in front of her people, and especially the Lantians. The comforting presance of Todd soothed her somewhat.

"I suggest that you allow us to return to our hive," she told Sheppard, "unless you were planning to keep us your prisoners as well."

"Escourt the wraith to the hanger. We'll take 'em back by jumper," Sheppard oredered to a team of marnines. He seemed to be avoiding looking at Kal'shath and Astra.

"Is there a problem?" she asked him quietly. Sheppard's eyes darted from her to Todd standing close behind her.

"Look," he said finally, "not that we're saying it's our fault or anything, but from what happened after what we did to Michael, I'm not sure what sort of welcome reseption you're gonna get, lady."

Kal'shath inhaled deeply. That very problem had been preying at her mind since she and Astra had discovered their transformation.

"There is much about wraith that you do not know," she answered simply, before turning and following the marines out of the Daedalus control room.

Mariellelita
April 12th, 2009, 03:28 AM
As all of the wraith aboard the Daedalus leave the Earth ship and heads towards the hive in the jumper, all is quiet. Amina looks at her Queen in concern. She looks upset about something, but it is hard to tell with Kal'shath's telepathic abilities diminished.

On the hive, each wraith goes off to do his or her own thing. Todd stays behind to have a 'chat' with Sheppard about Michael and Phobos before he will allow him to leave. The commander wanted Sheppard to know that this was a serious manner that shouldn't be taken lightly.

Amina sees Kal'shath and Astra not too far off from Todd, so she talks with them.

"What is wrong?" Amina says. "We have you safe and sound, back on the hive."

"Don't play stupid, child. You can see plainly well what the Abomination has done to us. How can we stay and work like this? How can our Queen rule?" Astra says, clearly angry.

"McKay and I have gone over the medicines that the Abomination has given to you. Do not worry, it isn't permanent. He never was able to perfect the formula enough for that to happen. Unlike with him, you two will become wraith once again." Amina says to them both.

"All you have to do is rest a while to allow your bodies to break down the serum. But, in beds of course, you wouldn't want to contaminate the whole ship via the hibernation pods!" Amina continued.

Astra smiles while Kalshath's posture straightens up after hearing the good news.

"See human Sheppard, you were wrong." Kalshath says to the Colonel. He and Todd came over to see what was going on during Amina's explanation.

Draygon
April 12th, 2009, 03:51 AM
Todd looks at Kal'shath with relief in his eyes. It is clear to her that he believed her dead or worse.

"Todd seems to think that we may not have seen the last of Michael," said Sheppard to the three females. "But that's our problem. As for this Phobos guy? I'm not sure what we can do to help really. He's got a serious grudge against you," he told Kal'shath directly.

"That is a wraith matter," replied Kal'shath, "but if he attempts to allie himself with the Abomnation again, it is of concern to everyone in this galaxy."

"Tell me about it," moaned Sheppard. There was a warning growl from Todd. "Okay, okay!" said Sheppard, "We'll keep our a look-out for both of them."

"We expect to be given access to any information you discover," reminded Todd.

"Alright! Don't know how I'm going to write up this report..." muttered Sheppard as he made his way back to the jumper.

"I believe you should rest," Todd said to Astra and Kal'shath as Sheppard's jumper exited the hive. "Do not fear for our son," he said gently to Kal'shath as Amina helped Astra to her room. "I will make sure that he is safe while you recover."

Gratefully, Kal'shath took Todd's hand, letting him escort her to her own chambers.

*A few days later the Chief Scientist is back on the planet with the plant that could help our meals last longer. He is walking back to his dart to return to the cruiser in orbit but he stops when he hears the sound of someone approaching. He turns to see 7 Wraith guards aiming their weapons at him. He tries to draw his weapon but is quickly stunned. At that point a hive ship comes out of hyperspace and forces the cruiser to withdraw. Just before the cruiser enters hyperspace it is able to identify the hive as belonging to Phobos. The commander of the cruiser then sends an emergency call out to our hive. "The Chief Scientist has been kidnapped!"*

Todd was on the bridge of the Hive ship when the distress signal is recived. He growls at the cowerdice that this Phobos shows in attacking a lightly defended scientific team. He knew that Phobos was counting on Kal'shath's sense of loyalty to the remaining members of her old crew that would make her wish to go after him. But Kal'shath was still recovering from the after-effects of the Aboniation's genetic testing, though Astra had been able to return to light-duties.

He turned to the second-in-command. "I want you to gather the high ranking caste members for a council-of-war in the Throne room," he ordered. "I will inform the Queen."

NOTE: I think that's only fair. Almost everyone else has had a go :P

Phobos transmits a message to Todd's hive:

You will get him back healthy and in one piece if you deliver me ALL data and test results of his research on that plant. And I want the queen herself to come to this planet (he transmits the gate adress) to deliver the data.

Phobos transmits a message to Todd's hive:
"I have captured your Chief Scientist. He is well - at the moment. This condition could change very quickly however if you refuse my deal.
You will get him back healthy and in one piece if you deliver me ALL data and test results of his research on that plant. And I want the queen herself to come to this planet (he transmits the gate adress) to deliver the data.
I give you two hours time to answer this message. If I don't hear from you until then, your Chief Scientist will loose his right hand."

Astra receives the summon and arrives at the Throne room.

Todd had just arrived in the Throne room with Kal'shath when he recives Phobos's ransom demand from the second-in-command.

"What do information do we have on the Chief Scientist's research here?" Kal'shath asked.

"We cannot submit to his demands!" Todd countered.

"I had no intention to, but if we do nothing, then Phobos will cripple and ultimatly kill him. I will not let that happen."

Todd backs down at the determination in Kal'shath's voice. He won't risk a confrontation with a stressed wraith Queen.

"What options are available to us?" he asked the assembled wraith in the Throne room.

Amina walks into the throne room as well.

"We can't just let the Queen go to the planet. Our people are already running dangerously low of them, and we can't afford to lose her. If the Queen dies, we will be vulnerable."

"What do we do then?" Astra asks.

"Maybe we could make a fake Queen go to the planet to greet Phobos." Amina says.

April 16th, 2009, 11:52 AM
"Who would you have me send in my place?" Kal'shath asked. "Yourself? Astra? Phobos would be able to sense immidatly that any female sent in my place was not a Queen and would be killed instantly, and so would the Cheif Scientist."

Kal'shath looks gravely at the assembled wraith. "I will not judge the lives of this hive so lightly."

"Spoken like a true Queen," said Todd gavely, "but Amina is right. There are too few Queens left to risk your death." He turned to Deimos, who had been lurking at the edge of the group.

"You know the most about this Phobos," Todd said, "and are therefore our expert in his tactics. What is your interpriataion on the situation?"

April 16th, 2009, 12:11 PM
Deimos steps forward. "He will not hand over the Chief Scientist no matter what we do. He will seize any chance to kill Kal'shath and and lay his hands on the data. We cannot trust him and we can't let him have the original data, we'll have to modify it." He looks at everyone in turn, his gaze lingering on Astra for a spilt-second longer.
"I will go to hand over the data. He wants me dead too so maybe we can use that to our advantage. He will accept me as a substitute for Kal'shath.
Don't worry. Phobos won't kill me instantly. If he takes me to his hive you will be able to track it and send out a rescue party.
I had wanted to leave the hive for some time now to lay a false track for Phobos to distract him from our hive. I didn't leave though because of the recent events concerning the one called Michael. Now I can still help distracting Phobos."

Draygon
April 17th, 2009, 06:40 AM
Kal'shath met Deimos's gaze and held it.
"I do not like allowing someone else to take such risks on my behalf, but I feel I have little choice in this matter." There is a sadness in her eyes as she spoke. "Are you certain that he will not kill you immiatly and we will have time to stage a rescue?"

Deimos nodded, and Kal'shath noticed his eyes momentarily dart to look at Astra.

"Then we must send a message to Phobos," said Todd to Kal'shath, "and let him know that he will have his deal, before he harms the Cheif Scientist."

Kal'shath nodded to him. Todd bowed and left with the second-in-command. As the other wraith disperced, Kal'shath took Astra aside. There were no words, verbal or telepathic, but both females understood what was meant.

Kal'shath left the throne room to attend to her duties and her son, leaving Astra and Deimos alone in the room.

"I knew you were going to leave but I had hoped you would stay clear of Phobos. I could have lived with that - somehow. But I didn't expect you to put yourself in mortal danger willingly", Astra says.

"It's the only way, you know that. Would you rather have Kal'shath risk her life? Phobos would sure kill her on sight. He won't do that with me. There is no doubt he will take me hostage though. We have old issues to solve." He takes her hand. "Besides, I count on you all to save me in time." He smiles at her. "Don't worry, I've met Phobos before and I know how to survive."

Astra scowls at him and hisses "You'd better! If you let yourself be killed I'll revive you no matter how much life force is needed and then I'll kill you again for being so stupid."

Deimos growls but can't stop himself from starting to chuckle. "You know, some day you will make a formidable queen."

They embrace and leave for the dart bay.

Phobos receives the answer. "Not what I had hoped for but for now I will agree. Meet me at the appointed planet in five hours."

Deimos had taken a single dart down to the planet's surface, along with the fabricated research. The Hive remained just out of scanning distance, in orbit around one of the planet's moons.

"He's late," said Kal'shath, looking at one of the main screens. She had insisted on being on the bridge.

"Phobos should be here shortly," said Todd.

As if on cue, another hive dropped out of hyperspace and a cruiser decended towards the planet.

"We must wait for them to take Deimos," said Todd to the second-in-command, "and for the enemy hive to re-enter hyperspace before we can risk breaking orbit and following the sub-space tracking signal."

They waited, the tension in the air almost stiffling. Eventually, the cruiser returned to the hiveship and Phobos's hive opened a hyperspace window and left.

"Now," said Kal'shath grimly, "we follow."

*On the enemy hive the Chief Scientist is pacing in his cell. He will make Phobos pay for this. Just then the door opens and two of Phobos' soldiers drop an obviously hurt Deimos onto the floor. The Chief Scientist rushes to his side and asks him if he is all right. Deimos says no and rolls over onto his side in pain. He then informs the Chief Scientist of the plan to rescue both of them. The Chief Scientist chuckles and says that he has a plan that will help the hive in their efforts. But he wants to know if Deimos is up to it before they do anything. Deimos replies in the affirmative and the Chief Scientist then helps him up and takes him to the wall. The Chief Scientist explains that he was able to manually divert chemicals that the hull regenerator uses to tear down walls to this wall. Just then the wall is eaten away and the captured Wraith are able to pass undetected into the next hallway.*

Meanwhile, Amina is on the bridge and sends an order to get a hold on the signal from Phobo's ship as it leaves.

"Ma'am, we have the signal. We will be ready to follow them as soon as the Queen and the others return." a tech tells her.

Amina tells Kal'shath that they are ready to track Phobos when she returns.

"Ma'am, we have the signal. We will be ready to follow them as soon as the Queen and the others return." a tech tells her.

Amina tells Kal'shath that they are ready to track Phobos when she returns.
"Then let us follow them," said Kal'shath, "but be sure to keep out of their scanner range. We don't want to alert Phobos to our presence. He may well kill Deimos and the Cheif Scientist before we have a chance to rescuse them."

"We will do what needs to be done," assured Todd.

Kal'shath nodded and left the bridge. She headed back to her chambers to see to her son. To her surprise, when she opened the door, she saw Astra standing in the middle of her quaters.

"Did you wish to see me about something?" Kal'shath asked her.

Draco-Stellaris
April 19th, 2009, 05:20 AM
On the bridge of Phobos's hive an alarm begins to sound. Phobos asks irritated "What is going on?"

A technician reads the message on the computer terminal "The prisoners have escaped. We don't know yet how they have managed it but it seems they have destabilised the walls of their cell."

Phobos snarls "Alert every single Wraith on this ship! I want those two back in a cell instantly!"

Phobos rushes out of the room, trying to locate Deimos with his mind. Soon the ship swarms with drones patrolling the corridors, opening every door and looking into every niche.

Draygon
April 19th, 2009, 05:35 AM
Astra seems to be plucking up the courage to speak, probably about Deimos being allowed to go on this suicide mission, when Todd speakes clearly in Kal'shath's mind.

"Phobos's hive has dropped out of hyperspace. We should be upon them momentarily"

"I will meet with you on the bridge," Kal'shath replies. "Who is leading the strike team?"

Todd chuckled over their telepathic link. "I though you knew already. Astra volenteered to head the rescue mission. I will see you on the bridge then."

Kal'shath turned back to Astra as Todd disconnected the link.

"Go," she told Astra, "with my belssing. We will be approching Phobos's hive any moment now."

Astra left the Queen's chambers, clearly relieved by Kal'sahth's acceptance of her desision.

Draco-Stellaris
April 19th, 2009, 05:49 AM
Astra heads for the dart bay with a determined stride. She is still upset about Deimos going voluntarily on this mission and Kal'shath allowing it, but she can see it's no use. They didn't have an alternative.

Please prepare yourself for battle, Amina. You're the best dart pilot and I need you to guard my back, Astra sends a telepathic message to Amina.

A message from the Second reaches Astra Be careful, Phobos's ship seems to be in a state of high alert. Our sensors pick up much activity throughout the whole ship. Astra replies Maybe they won't be expecting an attack when they deal with problems of their own.

Then a thought strikes her Those problems are sure related to Deimos and the Chief Scientist. I hope they are causing trouble, she grins.

She reaches out with her mind. The link between her and Deimos had become much stronger reccently and she has no problems locating him.
She boards her cruiser and orders the darts to swarm out and cause a distraction.

Mariellelita
April 19th, 2009, 06:03 AM
Amina follows Astra in her dart and the whole team of pilots leaves the hive and goes towards Phobos's ship. Amina believes that something must be upsetting Phobos a lot since it took a while for the enemy darts to leave their hive.

"We are almost there Astra." Amina tells Astra telepathically. "How many darts do you want to follow us inside and how many drones should they drop off?"

Draco-Stellaris
April 19th, 2009, 06:39 AM
Astra tells Amina the required numbers and then prepares to enter Phobos's ship herself. The defenses are minimal. Apparently Phobos's drones are spread widely over the ship and Astra's rescue party can enter the hive without much of a fight.

She runs off in the direction where she has located Deimos, taking out several patrols of drones on the way.

When she turns a corner she finds herself face to face with Phobos.

Phobos snarls at her "You will never get away with this." He draws a dagger and attacks her. Astra sends out a telepathic distress call I need help! Quick!

Dr. Daedalus
April 19th, 2009, 05:47 PM
*Just then Deimos tackles Phobos and starts fighting hand to hand with him. The Chief Scientist quickly dispatches Phobos's two guard drones and is about to assist Deimos when Astra stops him. She says that Deimos needs to do this himself. Deimos and Phobos continue fighting until Deimos stabs him in the chest but before Deimos can finish him more drones appear and start firing. The Chief Scientist then lays down fire to cover our retreat to the dart bay...*

Draco-Stellaris
April 20th, 2009, 10:55 AM
"This way!", Astra shouts, leading the Chief Scientist and Deimos to her cruiser. They get on board and take off. They are followed by a couple of enemy darts.

Trying to avoid the darts they head for their own ship but the darts are much faster and threaten to overwhelm their cruiser.

Just then Amina's squadron appears and engages the enemy darts. The cruiser lands safely in Kal'shath's ship and Amina and her squadron retreat.

When all are back safe on the flight deck Todd orders to open fire and destroy Phobos's ship once and for all.

There is no chance for that though because Phobos's ship opens a hyperspace window and disappears.

Draygon
April 20th, 2009, 12:25 PM
Todd snarled and thumped the consol in front of him. Once again, Phobos had escaped the death he so richly deserved!

"That is a problem for another time," Kal'shath told him. "Now, we must see to our wounded and make repaires."

Todd nodded in agreement. Kal'shath spoke sense. The entire hive needed to be fully repaired, not just the on-the-go repaires they had been forced to make. He turned to his second-in-command.

"Take us to one of our rest sites. At least there, we should hopefully be safe from any further trouble."

Kal'shath left the bridge to see her returned crew, shaking her head. No matter where they went, Kal'shath was sure that trouble would follow them.

Draco-Stellaris
April 20th, 2009, 12:41 PM
"You are hurt", Astra says worriedly to Deimos. "Come with me, you need to feed."

Deimos gets up shakily and walks with Astra to the supply chamber. Astra keeps a close eye on him in case he should stumble.

"I think Phobos will leave us in peace for a while now. His ship is damaged worse than ours", Deimos tells her.

"I really hope that", Astra sighs. "We deserve a bit of peace right now." She eyes him carefully "You're not still thinking about leaving the hive, are you?"

"One day I will have to confront Phobos again and I'd rather not have to do that on this ship", he looks at her. "But for now I will stay."

Astra smiles. "Then let us enjoy this time of peace however short it may be."
She is convinced it won't take long for the next trouble to show up.

The Hive drops out of hyper-space around a lush and desolate planet, one of the Hive's many "rest sites". Todd leaves the second-in-command in charge of the bridge, as he leaves to inform Kal'shath. When he arrives at her quaters, she is just putting their son back in his crib.

"We have arrived at the rest site," he told her. "Since the repairs that are needed may well take some time, I wondered if the majority of the hive wished to remain on the planet's surface until they were compleated."

"We could all use some rest," Kal'shath answered, "and that includes you. No doubt the Cheif Scientist will wish to remain onboard the hive to see to the repairs, but I'm sure that Kenny will be able to cope while you take some needed rest." Kal'shath echoed Todd's smile at the use of the second-in-command's "human" name.

"I suppose you are not giving me much of an option?" sighed Todd. Kal'shath merely grinned her shark-toothed grin. "Then I will join you when we board the cruiser to leave for the planet."

He bowed and left the room. Kal'shath began to gather together what she would need for their well deserved rest.

April 23rd, 2009, 10:17 AM
On the planet, Amina ventures off by herself for a while after the Queen and the others get settled nearby. She was fairly new to the hive, and have never been to this planet, so she wants to explore it.

After a couple of minutes, she looks off into the horizon and sees a clear patch of forest with many small buildings inside. They look old, so they could be the remains of an Ancient civilization. Shrugging her shoulders, she goes back to the others to learn about the history of this planet.

"I'm looking forward to see this planet. I've never been in this solar system before", Deimos tells Astra as they walk towards the flight deck.

Astra answers him "Me neither. In the database there's nothing specific or sensational. It's just a quiet place for getting some rest, it seems." She smiles "Exactly what I need."

"I found a map of the main continent, in the northern region is an expansive forest with some large lakes. The temperature and weather is pleasant there. How about finding out if the database is right?" Deimos grins at Astra.

Astra's smile gets even wider "It has been years since I've taken a bath in a lake. It would be nice to go swimming there."

Putting an arm around her shoulder Deimos aks her "Did I ever tell you that I love to go swimming?"

They board a small cruiser and Astra starts the pre-flight check. "Sounds like we have a plan then", she smiles at him again.

Todd seemed to be struggling to relax, Kal'shath observed. She sat in the shade of a tree cradling the sleeping Tral'shath.

"There is no danger here," she reminded Todd. He turned to look at her, attempting to mask his agitation.

"Forgive me for being parinoid," he relpied, "but we have had more misfortune in these recent months than I have experianced in over a thousand years. I am starting to beleive that we are jinxed, as the humans say."

Kal'shath laughed at his suggestion. "Prehaps," she said, "but for now, everything seems well and I would rather bask in that than dwell on possibilities."

Todd chuckles and looks up as Amina approches.

April 27th, 2009, 01:14 PM
"All is well, I assume." Amina says while drinking the juice of a round fruit she found.

Todd and Kal'shath nod and smile at her. Turning towards the beach, Amina giggles at seeing the sight of drones walking on the sand. It seems as though they are having trouble walking through it.

Suddenly, a bright light glares in the sky, making Amina cover her eyes.

"What is that?" She says.

Suddenly, a bright light glares in the sky, making Amina cover her eyes.

"What is that?" She says.

*At that moment the voice of the Chief Scientist is heard from their communication devices. He says that the system's star is going supernova and that those on the planet have about seven minutes to make it back to the hive. He is sending down darts to get the crewmembers who were dropped off without ships.*

Mariellelita
April 28th, 2009, 06:07 AM
"Oh no!" Amina screams. It seems as if they are always standing in harm's way.

She jumps into her dart and flys around scooping up the Queen, Todd, the baby, and other wraith. Another dart pilot is assigned to pick up Astra and Deimos. The star is getting brighter and she is worried that they may not have time to return!

Draco-Stellaris
April 29th, 2009, 10:58 AM
Astra and Deimos have jumped into one of the numerous lakes and are swimming a race just for fun when they notice the bright light.

Startled they stop in mid-swim and watch the light growing even brighter. "What's that?" Astra asks. Deimos frowns "I have no idea but knowing our luck it can't be anything good".

They hear the high-pitched noise of a dart coming their way and receive a telepathic warning from the pilot, explaing in short about the supernova. Astra and Deimos have no time to make it back to the shore and are picked up by the beam still in the water.

As the white glow fades away again they are standing in the dart bay, soaking wet and surrounded by Kal'shath and the baby, Todd and Amina. All of them stare in disbelief at Astra and Deimos.

"I'm relieved to see you have all made it safe from the planet. If you excuse us now, please?" Astra says and takes Deimos's arm, dragging him away gently. "I think it would be better if we just find some clothes now."

Draygon
April 29th, 2009, 11:58 AM
Kal'shath chuckled to herself at the two wraith's lack of attire, but her attention immidatly shifted to Todd, who walked out of the dart bay, his mind closed and every line of his body showing his pent up anger.

"Take my son back to my chambers," she instructed Amina, gently giving her teh sleeping Tral'shath. "I must deal with my mate momentarily."

Once sure that she would be left in private to speak with Todd, she followed the irate commander.

Amina takes Tral'shath back to the Queen's chambers and sets him in his crib. She instructs a group of drones to stay and guard the entrance to Kal'shaths chamber to keep the kid safe. Then, she leaves to go to the labs and finish her work there.

*As the hive travels through hyperspace the Chief Scientist notices that something is wrong. He orders the hive to drop out so he can run a diagnostic on the hyperdrive. When he starts running the diagnostic he realizes that the stars are not where they are supposed to be. The diagnostic computer reports that the hyperdrive received a burst of energy just prior to entering hyperspace. That burst has sent us 3 million light years off course. We are now in the middle of what the humans call the "Milky Way" galaxy. The Chief Scientist hurriedly contacts Todd and Kal'shath to inform them of the situation.*

Draygon
April 30th, 2009, 01:11 PM
Kal'shath follows Todd as he made his way to his own lab, ignoring her verbal and telepathic calls. As he enters his lab, she can see that he is now shaking with self-contained fury. He leans heavily on one of the benches, his back to her.

"Todd?" says Kal'shath, gently placing a hand on his shoulder. Without warning, Todd spun round and struck Kal'sahth across the face. She matched his snarl as a knife dropped into her hand from its sheath on her forearm. He doesn't appear to recognise her.

Mate or not, commander of this hive or not, she was a wraith Queen and she would not stand for this level of didrespect. She slashed her knife at Todd, and there was a clash as it struck the steel of Todd's own knife.

The close brush with injury seemed to bring them both to their senses. Todd was the first to re-sheath his blade. He hung his head in shame at his actions towards his Queen. He reached out to stroke her cheek, to reafirm their bond but the Cheif Scientist's telepathic voice broke the moment. Todd glanced at Kal'shath, who still had murder in her eyes. He would have to tred carefully for the moment until he could rekindle her favour.

"We will be with you shortly," replied Todd, allowing Kal'shath to leave the room before him.

Amina looks out one of the windows and into space. Not being an astronavigator, she doesn't see anything wrong initially. But, she senses a feeling of shock and worry throughout the hive. Something has happened. She rushes to find a hive brother (fellow crew member) to ask him what was wrong. He didn't know either. Amina would have to ask someone else later, or wait until an announcement from the Queen or the high officers.

Draco-Stellaris
May 3rd, 2009, 09:16 AM
Astra senses a shift in the mood of the hive and stops in her tracks. She has just left her quarters after getting dressed properly again. Something unexpected has happened, she thinks. The whole hive seems to hold its breath. But that's not all, there is something else. A stab of aggression filters through the emotional chaos, some murderous feelings were unleashed somewhere. Astra recognises the thought patterns. Kal'shath and Todd. I need to see if they are both well.

Astra locates Kal'shath and hurries toward her presence. She enters the Chief Scientist's lab, there are gathered the Chief Scientist, Kal'shath and Todd, all wearing solemn expressions.

Kal'shath notices Astra and turns to face her. Astra glances nervously at the other Wraith and asks "My Queen, I sensed a danger, are you well?"
