Vulcan Stev's Database

It's a BLOG Captain, but not as we know it.

United or Untied part 6

The story thus far: Stev, a Vulcan agent of the clandestine Federation organization known as October, has been given a mission to go to Romulus to determine whether a new informant is genuine or an effort by the Tal Shiar to sniff out the whereabouts of “The Hobgoblin”.  His contact to get him through Romulan security is one his former professors.  Stev and Phyllis are now en route to Romulus
Part 1 / Part 2 / Part 3 / Part 4 / Part 5

The pair of Federation agents had no further trouble on their trip to the Romulan capital.  The conversation continued during the remainder of their journey.

“So you still hold to your interpretations of the teachings of Surak?” Phyllis finally asked.

Stev smiled, “Yes, though I have been unsuccessful in convincing other Vulcans of the validity of my beliefs.”

“Then your vrekasht, is still in effect?”

“Yes, and since I am officially dead I doubt that it will ever be lifted.”

Phyllis looked her former student in the eye, “Stev, you of all people should know the future is not set.”  Her eyes twinkling again, “Nothing lasts forever.”

Stev’s features remained stoic.  He calmed his exterior while below the surface his emotions rolled, “I know all too well that nothing lasts forever, Phyllis.”

The older woman studied his face for a moment, “Vulcans are always difficult to read, you even more so.  Regardless of your beliefs, you are still Vulcan.”

Stev smiled briefly, “I know you are not prone to stating the obvious, professor.  So your point is?”

“You left someone behind didn’t you?”

“It would be illogical to deny the truth.  Yes, my wife believes I am dead. She is currently working for Starfleet.”

“Why would she think you are dead?”

“October staged a shuttle accident about four years ago and faked my death.”

“You chose this solitary existence over your wife,” Phyllis asked incredulously.

Stev exhaled slowly, “One of my last missions aboard the Intrepid originated within October.  It was a suicide mission to be blunt.  The fact that I survived and accomplished the mission caught the attention of Frankenstein.  T’Aiya and I discussed it and we determined that my taking this assignment was the most logical course of action.”

The console in front Stev indicated an incoming transmission.

“If you say so,” Phyllis said just before Stev activated the subspace radio.

Inbound craft, identify yourself,” the transmission ordered in Romulan.

This is the Plaplak Jag’r carrying Phyllis Jenkins, merchant number 89-919699 and her shipment bound for the Krocton sector,” Stev replied flawlessly without any accent.

Seconds passed by slowly before the Romulan replied, “Plaplak Jag’r you are cleared for planetfall at the port of Si’rcH, berth 902.”  An entry vector appeared on one of the bridge monitors.

Acknowledged,” Stev replied.  The Vulcan skillfully brought his small craft through the atmosphere.  His course never deviated from the prescribed route.  He grinned.  He could feel the atmospheric turbulence buffet the small craft.  He relished the feel.  It was times like this that he was thankful for his interpretation of the teachings of Surak.  Any other Vulcan would coldly calculate the variables.  Stev was one with his ship, the monitors his eyes and the atmospheric flaps his extremities.  He reveled in the feel and he took pride in the fact that he was damn good pilot.

Seeing the spaceport ahead Stev skillfully brought the ship into its assigned berth.  He killed the inertial dampners just before the ship came to a complete stop.  There was just the briefest sensation of forward movement before everything was still.
