(( Alien Ship )) :: Hannibal now knew the ancestry of the alien ship, but why was it here wa= s now the answer, and what was it doing to the Ergot people, and how could = they stop it:: Parker: It's Zalkonian... Jicheld: What?=C2=A0 How?=C2=A0How are they here?=C2=A0 We need to be extra= careful.=C2=A0 Don't get separated from each other. ::No truer words were spoken:: Parker: Very sure. Let's keep going. Both of you...keep your eyes peeled... Jicheld: Aye, sir. Walters: Aye, sir. Based on the current flow, I think the power source migh= t be that way. ::He pointed down one of the corridors:: ::They were going deeper into the Zalkonian ship, something they had to do.= Hannibal didn't like it, but they really had no choice...answers lay withi= n, not without:: Parker: Allright, let's go. Walters, behind me. Jicheld, take the rear... ::With Hannibal leading the way, they headed down a corridor, a brighter il= lumination coming from ahead of them. They moved another twenty meters and = entered another, larger chamber. Seemingly in the center, there was a large= column which ran from the deck to=C2=A0the overhead, very reminiscent=C2= =A0of a warp core. However, before they could move in closer to examine it,= a scream echoed down another corridor, and a sound Hannibal knew well...th= e sound of pitched combat:: Parker: LET'S GO! Walters: response :: Tearing down the corridor, Hannibal knew they were relatively unarmed...= but he did have his Bowie knife in his boot. Entering the room, they saw Ru= q fighting with what could only be described as one of the Shadow Eaters. T= he Ergot brave was bleeding, and he was losing...badly. Jicheld spoke:: Jicheld: Ruq!=C2=A0 Back off and we will help defend you! Ruq: My brothers!=C2=A0 Take arms! Parker: Hang on! Walters: response :: Before they could reach him, several Shadow Eaters had scooped him up an= d taken him deeper into the chamber, but several more were now engaging the= three Starfleet officers. One attacked Hannibal from the rear, the massive= Marine twisted around, throwing the apparition to the ground, then droppin= g on top of him, planting a forearm in its throat...it moved no more. Anoth= er tried to attack him, but Hannibal picked up the broken=C2=A0spear and th= rew it, impaling the Shadow Eater to a bulkhead. Walters and Jicheld were f= ighting their own demons, and once they had been stopped, the three of them= stood together in the semi darkness:: Parker: Either of you hurt? Walters/Jicheld: response :: Thankfully, no one was hurt, but they still had a problem...they were in= side a Zalkonian ship, and they had just seen Ruq taken away. Hannibal knew= which way they had taken him, and his first thought was to go after him. T= hese were not the normal Zalkonians after the change...those were peaceful,= and only wanted to live their lives in peace. These, however, were more li= ke their unchanged brethren. That made them much more dangerous. Walters sp= oke:: Walters: response Parker: We find out where they took Ruq and get some answers. ::There were certain things a Marine would never do, such as leave a man be= hind. Ruq was not a Marine, but he was a warrior, and they owed him that mu= ch. In Hannibals' mind, the Prime Directive was out the window...the Ergot = knew there was life outside of their world, and nothing could be done to ch= ange that. Now, they had to minimize the damage the=C2=A0Zalkonians had cau= sed. Hannibal deactivated his emitter, sheathed his knife, then spoke:: Parker: The pretense is over. The gloves come off... :: A chirp interrupted his=C2=A0next thought, and the next voice told him t= hat the other group was alive, at least for now:: T'Lea: =3D/\=3D T'Lea to the USS Thor, and Parker.=C2=A0 Do= you copy? =3D/\=3D Parker:=3D/\=3D This is Hannibal. I copy.=3D/\=3D Jorey: response :: Hearing Jorey's voice was a surprise. What the hell he was doing there w= as a story for another time, however...:: T'Lea: =3D/\=3D Doctor Hendon and I have recovered evidence of firs= t contact with the Egrot.=C2=A0 Egrot DNA has been genetically altered with= an outside alien species.=C2=A0 Doctor? =3D/\=3D Hendon: response Parker: =3D/\=3D We concur. We are inside=C2=A0the Zalkonian ship which cra= shed on the=C2=A0surface. We saw them take one of the Ergot braves to anoth= er=C2=A0chamber. These Zalkonians are not acting like the ones we liberated= ...they are acting like, well, Zalkonians...=3D/\=3D Jorey: response Jicheld/Walters: response Parker: =3D/\=3D We're going in, find out where they took Ruq, and get him = back, if we can, and put a stop to this madness.
