As the crew listens to the Captain's speech, we move through various levels of engineering. It’s a visually impressive sight. We find the ship’s Chief Engineer, Mr. 'Zero', busy tinkering with the alien wreckage. 'Zero’s true form unknown, he resides in a high-tech containment suit. He works at an open panel.







Chase looks out across the bridge from his captain's chair and witnesses his crew nodding in agreement with his call to action. Some more than others, but all behind their captain's command. Even Holden seems to be in agreement, a slight smile on his face.

After a beat, Helmsman Lt. Blake states, "Sir, course laid in for Omega Field 131."

Chase was pleased how the crew was responded. After a few seconds, he finally responded to Lt Blake, "You may proceed".

On the captain's command, Lt. Blake engages the warp drive via the ship's command console in front of him.

The Enterprise makes the jump to warp speed...and into the final frontier...

In the heart of the ship, a cavernous, multi-tiered space filled with pulsing lights and the powerful hum of the enormous warp core. Starfleet personnel perform various tasks throughout Engineering. At the base of the mighty core, Holden and Mr. 'Zero' are studying the analysis of the Ordrin wreckage on a holographic console.



Holden drifts away for a moment; Zero still reading from the panel. "Something on your mind, Commander?" Mr. 'Zero' inquires.

Holden turns back to face Zero. "You served with Captain Chase on board the Feynman, so you know his history. He’s taking an enormous risk."

"Risk is, as you well know, part of the captain’s personality, as is his passion. It’s where those two qualities intersect that he is at his best."

"It’s always about equations for you isn’t it, Zero?" Holden adds wryly. Holden’s trying to be funny, but he’s hit Zero where he lives. Zero’s tone turns serious, but he keeps working.

"Commander, Enterprise is currently traveling at warp eight point six through subspace. This improbability of physics is made possible by one single, beautiful equation. One minute miscalculation and this ship and everyone on it turn into a ten light-year skid of subatomic particles across the galaxy."

Holden responses stoically, "Sounds painful."

Zero’s armored head turns ALL THE WAY AROUND to face Holden, his expressionless face revealing nothing. "It feels like a strong wind."

There’s an small beat before the sound and color of the engine changes. Zero swivels his head back towards the panel. "We’re dropping out of warp."

A loud klaxon blares as red lights flash throughout Engineering. Over the intercom, Lt. Jax calls out, "Red alert! Red alert! All crewmen to their stations. Repeat..."

Holden exits Engineering quickly, as others react around him.




In the captain’s ready room, Chase sits studying reports on his LCARS. Monitors take up the majority of wall space and display stellar maps, the multiple maps of Federation space with large red areas highlighted across them representing the Omega Fields throughout the quadrant. A model of Magellan’s ship Trinidad sits on display in a corner, along with various alien artifacts.



"Red alert. Battle stations." calls out over the ship-wide comms system. "Captain Chase to the bridge."

The Enterprise drops out of warp, a little short of Omega Filed 131. A small Ordrin ship, very similar to the vessel destroyed by the sentry probe, is under attack from a fearsome looking battleship, a roughly-hewn but intimidating opponent of unknown origin. The smaller ship is trying to evade, but it is clearly out-matched and will not last long. The Enterprise approaches the skirmish.



Holden emerges from the turbolift. On the bridge, Jax, Blake, and Sandoval are at their stations. Chase now sits at the ready in the captain’s chair.

Chase calls out, "Open emergency comm channels immediately."

He waits a beat for the comm system to catch up and hopes that the Universal Translator will work. "Attention Vessels! This is the Federation Starship Enterprise. Firing upon this this ship will be considered an act of war and you will be destroyed. We are on a mission of mercy to help the Ondrin people,"

Chase realized he better widen the audience of his message, "We are not here to attack anyone, but will not hesitate to defend ourselves. Would a representative from each ship respond on this channel immediately!"

The battleship opens up a volley of disruptor fire on the Ordrin ship. The smaller vessel dodges and weaves the disruptor beams for the time being.




The battleship fires a single disruptor beam, the Enterprise's shields glow on impact.
 


The Enterprise shakes slightly from the blast. The bridge crew are lightly jostled under the attack.

"Direct hit! Shields holding," Lt. Jax calls out.

"They can't be serious," Holden adds sarcastically.

Chase let out a short sigh. "Very disappointing." Chase was hoping that all parties involved would be able to work all of this out. That was probably unrealistic.

"Mr. Holden, target that ship's weapon systems. I'm going to assume the Universal Translator was malfunctioning and they didn't understand the phrase 'we will destroy you' Fire".

Suddenly, the alien battleship erupts with a hail of disruptor beams. Enterprise buckles with each hit, her shields dancing with light.


 
Enterprise’s banks toward the alien battleship, her phaser banks glow to life, issuing forth a broadside barrage of energy that pummels the alien battleship, giving us a glimpse of what this powerful new ship can do.



The enemy battleship tries to return fire, but within moments it is left powerless, sparking and adrift in space.



On the bridge, Jax announces, "I’m reading a core breach on the enemy vessel."

Chase leans forward in his seat. "Maybe they'll listen now. Open a channel."

"Alien Vessel. We asked you to stand down, and you fired upon us. Let's try this again. We read that you about to experience a core breach. Do you require assistance?"

Chase leaned back and waited.

"We've opened channels to both ships, sir. But no response from either ship," Lt. Blake calls out.

After a beat, Jax interjects,"We're being scanned by the unknown ship."

"Sir, I now have an open channel with one of the ships. Bringing it onscreen now."

On the main viewscreen, we see the interior of the unknown ship. Covered in smoke and fire, bizarre alarms sounding throughout the bridge of the unknown ship. Shadowy insectoid limbs move across consoles in the foreground, but the alien is clouded in smoke, unrecognizable. Explosions begin to rock the bridge. The alien squeals intensely as the viewscreen goes black.



A small explosion from the battleship’s flickering engines blossoms to a massive blast, destroying the ship within a moment.



Nearby, the Ordrin vessel banks away from the blast.

"Well that's just perfect. These Ondrins better be worth it. Can we at least talk to the Ondrin ship now?" Chase asked, his frustration growing. Maybe this was not such a great idea afterall, he thought.

"Still no response from the Ord..." Blake begins before stopping mid-sentence. On the view-screen, the forward cameras turn from the exploding ship to attempt to locate the Ordrin vessel.

"Sir, the Ordrin ship has jumped to warp," Lt. Jax quickly interjects, reading from the display in front of her.

Turning in her chair towards Chase, Jax adds,"It's gone into the Omega distortion!*"


[*It is unheard of a ship of that size being able to enter and travel in an Omega Field at warp speed. The only ships in the Federation fleet capable of low warp are the Dragonfly-class shuttles.]

Chase shouted, "Can we follow them?" Hoping his instincts were right and that the information they had received from the previous ship would be of use now.

"Yes, sir. Their ship’s unique magnetic signature should leave an imprint in subspace that we can follow. It won’t last long, though." Lt. Jax answers from the science station.

The main viewport screen depicts the area where the Ordrin ship entered Omega Field 131. The ship's entry point in the Omega field distortion has created a visible, rippling effect in subspace.

"Is that wise, captain? According to sensors they rabbited into the Omega field at Warp 3. That'll be pushing it for the Dragonfly classes shuttles," Holden adds, attempting to be the a voice of reason on the bridge.
