Not Where I Belong

Mission: Not Where I Belong
Location: USS Chuck Norris

OFF:

Time for a mission! :)

ON:

{USS Chuck Norris, Engineering}

Lieutenant Aurther Winters finished tightening the last bolt himself as his men watched. It was his way. Three weeks of engineering upgrades were finally complete... though he only supervised a week and a half as Major Mor'Tag had a hard time turning over the engineering department to him. Winters tapped his comm badge.

{USS Chuck Norris, Bridge}

"Captain, engineering is ready to depart," said Mor'Tag from the ops station. He had already put engineering behind him and was all-in with his new job as ops... as any good Marine, especially one that was half-Klingon, would.

"Very well," continued Captain Sprague, "take us out."

*FLASH OF LIGHT*

"Aye, Sir," said Warrant Officer Sprague from the helm.

"Impulse power, engage!" said Captain Dex Hellion as he stood from his command chair. Leaving Space Dock still gave him chills, just like it did when he was an Ensign. But it was different now--now that he had reached the pinnacle of his career, command of a starship.

"Left, left!" yelled Razer from the ops station.

Sprague quickly corrected his mistake and activated the correct thruster, putting the ship back on tack.

Mor'Tag rolled his eyes from tactical, just before sending Ensign Youngblood back down to the security office.

"That was close, Sprague... too close!" yelled Commander Koth as rushed over to behind the helm. "See to it that it doesn't happen again!" He towered over a perspiring Sprague. A few seconds later, the ship was out of Space Dock, and safe.

"Plot a course for the Varek system," said Captain Hellion as he handed a PADD to a yeoman. He tapped his comm badge. "All officers to the bridge for mission briefing."

A few minutes later Dr. Madroi, Science Officer Jamerson, Counselor Mirari, and Diplomatic Officer M.I.U. filed in.

Riley and Zanud took their places in front of the viewer. "Long range sensor scans have have detected an unknown anomaly at Varek 3," said Zanud as the planet appeared on the screen.

"What type of anomaly?" asked Jamerson.

"Unknown," replied Riley. "It' unlike anything Star Fleet has ever seen before. That's why we're being sent to investigate."

"That's it?" asked a confused Madroi.

"Not quite," began Zanud. An image of the planet's largest city appeared behind him. "Varek 3 is about 10 years from developing warp drive. We need to figure this out without interfering with their natural development."

"I hate the prime directive," hissed Mor'Tag under his breath.

"Sorry I'm late Captain Spra--" Winters began as he shuffled out of the turbo lift with a confused look on his face.

"Yes, please join us, Mr. Winters," said Captain Hellion as he looked to a non-existent watch on his wrist.

OFF:

So that's our mission... to investigate an unknown anomaly on a planet about to develop warp drive.

And somehow we've all switched places and don't realize that we're not where we belong:

Sprague <=> Hellion
Youngblood <=> Koth
Razer <=> Mor'Tag
Riley <=> Zanud
Madroi <=> Jamerson
M.I.U. <=> Mirari

All of us, that is, except for Winters, who still is Chief Engineer and seems to be the only person who still remembers where everyone is supposed to be.

Have fun with it... stretch your characters!

Captain Dick Sprague
Commanding Officer
USS Chuck Norris NCC-4005
