    Historians Note: The events in this story occur 5 years after the events potrayed in "Eternaty: The Next Mission"

    Five years...five years since the end of the legendary second mission of the USS Eternaty. After I led to ship through the Lorg wars which finally lead to their defeat, I was tired of rescuing the universe. I returned to Earth and taught the newbies at Starfleet Acedemy what a good officer needs. The Eternaty is now a museum and a symbol of heroic resitance. It was a time of peace. Now a new threat looms above the federation. A coup d'etat placed the Zonitopian homeworld under military rule. They already anneceted various unpopulated systems along the Federation border. Starfleet Command decided to put an emergency plan into action. It includes the revival and refitting of various old, abandoned star bases at the border. With me still being Captain I was ordered to take command of Deep Space Proxima Alpha by now. I can't say I'm glad with this. I still cope with a trauma from my war experiences, and I'm not keen on more troubles. I managed to get together some of the old crew, namely Commander D-Stroya, who will be my First Officer again, and Commander Kilham, my Science Officer.
    I was glad to meet them again, after this long time and chat about the old times. We laughed our asses off, remembering our hilarious adventures with pokemon or mutated pizza. We are currently on the USS Essess en route the DS Proxima Alpha. We will arrive there in one hour. Maybe it won't be so bad after all...

    Ensign Stryker ready for duty sir

    I hope this will earn me some promotion quick, after having to toil in that cramped up space shuttle for ages with that irritating logical Vulcan.(i hope he's not on the station)
    Oh well that was in the academy times, thank god they are now over.
    Man, the station looks empty, for now
    I wonder how starfleet got hold of this one.
    I need to talk to the head of security, i'v been hearing some weird noises at docking bay, sounded like screams, but it could'v been the jetlag, my neck is still hurting after three days of travel economy class.

    I hope the holodecks well be free soon, its been so long ...

    Having spent the last four years developing a time-warp drive I thought i'd never again have to face deepspace travel. Starfleet seem to have had different plans for me, though - possibly due to one or two hunred little - er accidents and once again I find myself part of the crew under Captain 8472. How could they do this to me? - I barely made it out alive last time. They seem to think that there is a serious threat to our peace out here - some excuse. They're just trying to get me out of the way before the loss of the USS Birmingham, with her 500 crew becomes public knowledge. I know the timedrive wasn't to blame, but nobody believes it. Too many failures in the past.
    To give us the USS Essess to travel out here on is the final insult, this ship was old 50 years ago when Captain Birk used it for deepspace exploration. Enough complaints, I must do my duty here and make the best of it Just hope they ARE lying about any threat lurking out here.

    Third Lieutenant Myrmidion reporting in, sah! :)

    I've been assigned to this...this....beauty of a space station as a shuttle pilot, after I sucessfully caused a twenty-seven shuttle pile-up in a spacedock. I guess they wanted me elsewhere. Well, nice to be with you.

    WAAAH!

    ....Same damn dream again and again. *picks up the log of new arrivals aboard the station*

    What the.... 8472, Tarantella, Cascade, AND Myrmidion?! D-Stroya on the way?! Looks like we might have a reunion in the air.... I shall investigate this further, its been a while since I've shared a round with all those great people aboard the Eternaty...

    This promises to be fun!

    Well. My reassignment to DSPA has been completed. God is smells like a Fookengi washroom here... Ill have to put some scented oils in the air ducts.

    Luckily I dont have to be on duty for another 3 days so I'm going to go down to Spl0rk's bar and get myself utterly drunk ;)

    I might even have a 'fun time' with that girl from engineering ;) :D

    Finally the USS Essess arived and docked at DS Proxima Alpha. I heard that the advance crew included some more old camorades. I'm looking forward to meet Tactical Officer Deepershade and Security Chief beerbaron. With some of the old farts around it will be easier for me.

    The airlock. Last barrier to my new home. *crank* It slowly opens. Sparks, smoke, rust and deformed bulkheads everywhere. This station is a big pile of crap. It must be the biggest piece of trash this side of the Typhon nebula. And this is supposed to be the key defense point for this sector bah...If I ever get a transmission back to Starfleet some Admirals will hear some ugly things. Maybe I should contact my old friend Admiral Cascade and see what he can do.
    What's this? Faces...humans...there are beerbaron, Deepershade and ensign Stryker. My crew has also been joined my Lt. Myrmidion, the new flyboy. He is infamous for his shuttle crashes. Maybe that's the cause we hav't got brandnew ships, but only some old beta-class shuttles. But maybe we can still do something about that.
    All my bones hurt. On the ship I senses every acceleration. Lieutenant Tarantella said he had fixed, but he obviously failed. I sent him to the geeks in engineering. The station is so b0rked that he can't do much wrong there.
    The Ops is out of order and needs extensive repairs. So I made a bar near the airlock our temporary command center. I made Ensign Stryker chief catering officer - in other words: bartender.
    "On romulan ale please"
    "yes sir at once"
    "bah. Not that replicated crap! Get me some real stuff or you will clean the deck on a waste freighter faster than you can count to three!"

    ..."-licated crap! Get me some real stuff or you will clean the deck on a waste freighter faster than you can count to three!"

    Ah, 8472 giving the local bartender a rousing order, perhaps I could see that he does indeed get the real stuff.

    "Holage there 8472!"
    "Beer! What's up with this bartender?! He gave me replicated alcohol!"
    "Good god man! I'm on it..."
    *works some l33t bar skillz*
    "There we are, one romulan ale, enjoy :) Have you seen more of the old crew?"

    *telepathic message* 8472: I have been secretly making a new ship to get me the hell off this POS station, and it has PLENTY of room for supplies + extra staff, whatsay once the rest of us old dudes get here, along with a few newbies, we haul ass off this deathrap, maybe go back to the paradise planet?

    *end telepathic message*

    We finally have arrived at Proxima Alpha. I wasn't expecting much, but to see this... well Starfleet must have been VERY unhappy with me to send me to this remote scrapyard.
    Even the rats are too intelligent to stay here and have managed to escape.
    Our poor captain took one look at it and headed straight for the bar. I think i'll join him, though the replicated stuff doesn't bother me. As long as it's wet it'll do.

    One thing that is troubling me is many of the original crew of the Eternaty are here as well. Most were well decorated for bravery during the recent Lorg wars and have done nothing that I know of to deserve a posting like this. Unless there really IS something out here they think only we can handle.

    "Captain....The double shifts have finally paid off, the autopumps fiited and working at 110% capacity and I can happily report that the smell in the air ducks seems to be abating.

    The flange installment will take 4 hours and I request that the crew will have to use the facilities on board the station during that time. My men have suffered enough during this flight .

    The transfer of supplies and parts to the stations hold has started in earnest and will continue till 0800 tomorrow...Tarantella out."

    Hmm...okay...so, it seems like most of the crew of the Starship Eternaty ended up on this junkyard station. Let's see, we've got nearly no weaponry, no shielding, and the only piece of armour I can see just fell off and drifed away. Literally, the only thing holding this place together is the duct-tape on level 4.

    Anyway, I guess that it's not all bad...well, actually, it is...very bad...they gave me some lovely old rust-buckets as shuttles, which I intend to ram into the nearest moon as soon as possible...oh well, I guess we'll see what happens.

    Drinks are nice, though :)

    new cargo arrived and being inspected...
    duct tape...... 100,000 industrial rolls
    surgery kits,consoles and equipment. wheres the docters then?
    12 anti matter launchers,
    6 fusion reactors,
    1 very large power station assembly, this is still outside it will have to be attached to the station's hull, plenty of holes for maintenence.
    2 experimental singularity generators, im not sure if these are weapons or power providers, well they got level 10 security.
    hmmm 30 new shuttle crafts and tugs.

    Checking in order . . . .
    • Duct Tape, good good . . .
    • Anti-matter luanchers, good (note to self, have some grunt turn the old waste into anti-matter for launching)
    • Fusion Reactors, These had better be the X-14 series because we can't do anything newer without some kind of jury-rigged adapter and those things are a pain.
    • Power Station, about time, I'm running out of Duracells down here
    • Sigularity Generator, Cool. These babies are fun little toys (note, don't let the marines get to them this time, and keep them away from the mess hall and the bar. Bad things happen to the beer and the chicken)
    • Shuttles, Oh goodie, Capt'n will be happy about these, hope you got some Ion/gomer drives because I'd love to over-haul one of these :D
    • A Vertram!? You've got to be kidding. Ok, I guess I'll be breaking out the crew expansion modules, drive mod-chip, shag-carpet, and some GOOD replicators. I'll be building a bar/pizza shop too.

    farmerx sitting in the corner of the bar...
    thinking to himself.. " hmm, i havent got any space women for a while.... this isnt cool, and what the hell is the point of this hole ? i've spied 10 maybe 15 conversations and all I;ve gathered is that the air ducts smell funny, and that they're going to tape a bunch of weapons together with duct tape... sheeesh...im lost,
    im scared, im a million miles away from a home that doesnt exist... im a million miles and one plane of reality away from my family and friends.... i have nothing to look forward to except death....." farmerx let's one tear slide slowly down the side of his face and returns to his stolen quarters for a rest.


    as he is walking by the loading bay, he see's an admiral Thrakkath going over a recievership list and decides to get in behind him for a closer look... " singularity generators !! ha !! "
    farmerx sleeps with the his evil plans brewing like the coffee of an evil genius in his mind
