      Captain Steve Trevor / Diana Prince: A New Future? (Alternate Time-Line) (Closed RP With Diana Prince)
      Posted by Captain James T. Kirk on September 24, 2017 at 8:37pm in Hellifyno (IC Roleplaying) (Change)Send Message View Discussions

      They’ve traveled together from, Themyscira, (Paradise Island), to Mans World.

      With adventures, (including, cloak and daggers), and amusements along the way.

      By, what-ever mode of travel seemed available to them, at the time.

      Now, with NO real time frame set for their destination.

      The Future Is The Past.

      The Past Is The Future…

      Where were they now?

      Of course:

      Diana chose a particular location for this rendezvous…

      So Steve is just a tad out of the loop with things. Just. A. Tad. “Diana?”

      There were hints that Certain Gods were interfering with this particular…

      Locations problems, affairs and nasty hostilities. Which is why…

      Steve is waiting for Diana to answer him. For Now, “Diana?”

      Because The Future Spoke of a New Beginning…

      Change of Roles. Change of Tolls.

      What did it all mean?

      For Their Future?

      For Diana?

      For Steve?

      Together they’ve traveled, through adventures of their own. Ones including cloak and daggers, amusement and struggles of their own. The day Steve saved her from her home, her life changed. She did not see it as capture. People were in need of help and so her mind was set – she would leave Themyscira to set off to Man’s World with Captain Steve Trevor.

      Had Steve been left out of the loop? In a manner of speaking, yes he had. But not intentionally. Diana was just unsure how to word it without it sounding… strange. It was confusing even to her. Her name was uttered by him. Twice. She heard it both times, yet hadn’t answered. Not yet.

      There were rumors of a new beginning. For the future. A future with changed roles. It made no real sense, yet it peeked her curiousity. According to the tales from her Mother, the gods were dead. Killed by Ares. So them being involved was a cause for concern and curiousity. She would have to tell him about that.

      ”It should not be too far.” Diana finally spoke, casting a glance towards Steve. They would have to pass the forest ahead of them first. ”Through this forest should take us there.” There. Where even was there? She… didn’t truly know. Just a feeling. A gut feeling. A strong one, at that.

      Diana was keeping quiet.

      Which didn’t settle Steve down all that much.

      When she’s quiet….

      She Worries.

      When she worries…

      Steve is Restless….

      For Definitive Answers…

      However:

      Steve Trevor…

      Is Also His Own Man.

      “Take us where?”

      Still…Out of the Loop…

      .

      Steve has IMMENSE Concerns about being out in the open…

      In these woods…So Far Out In the Open…

      With Very Little Information to Go on…

      “Diana?”

      Steve would be right in his thoughts just then. When Diana kept quiet, she worried.

      Which made him feel restless.

      He knew.

      She knew.

      Diana knew that Steve wanted answers.

      To his questions that he surely had.

      But how would she be able to answer them?

      If what she knew was limited?

      ”I do not know.” That didn’t sound promising, now did it? ”But I will know once we get there.” The look Diana gave him said everything. The confusion, the uncertainty of what awaited them. Yet it was a promise of a future. Possibly a better one. But she could share some potential clues as to what might have happened.

      ”My Mother used to tell me about the gods.” Diana said, being wary of their surroundings. ”How Ares destroyed them.” Ares – The God of War.

      Ares…

      The God That’s Been, for lack of a better Word…

      REMOVED by Diana, for one of their first adventures…

      Unless another God was making his or her move?

      On Them? On Their Future? This Location?

      And How Many Others Were Affected?

      .

      “Diana?”

      Steve asked,

      “…Will you know more? Before? Or, After? We might run into them?”

      The God of War had indeed been defeated.

      As far as such things go.

      Something was definitely afoot.

      But what?

      By who?

      And why?

      The battle with Ares was on her mind.

      The question he asked would most likely result in the answer he didn’t want to hear. ”I have very little to go on, I’m afraid.” Atleast she was being honest. ”What I have is a… gut feeling. A strong one.” She had a tough time trying to explain it. Let alone making sense of it all.

      ”A promise of a future and gods possibly being involved. It is… strange. They are meant to be destroyed.” There were concerns in regards to it all. ”I have a feeling something is not quite right. Which means we will know more… after.” And since Steve was her voice of reason, he would most likely offer his imput now.

      Gut Feeling.

      Well? Steve had, a Gut Feeling:

      When he snatched that notebook from The Germans.

      Steve also had, another Gut Feeling:

      To get the Hell out of Dodge and Fly out of there!

      Which Landed him at the Shores of Paradise Island…

      Which Led to the God, allegedly, Ares being Destroyed….

      .

      “So You Have Suspicions?” Steve coaxed, “If only there was some ice cream out here?”

      Perhaps as a means to distract her? As he was distracted by her?

      A gut feeling.

      Much like him.

      Her Steve.

      Much like she had a strong gut feeling.

      When she told everyone she had to defeat – Ares.

      The God of War.

      Like she told Steve.

      On that boat.

      The boat that took them to Man’s Land.

      Naive, some would call her.

      Innocent and young in mind.

      They wouldn’t be wrong.

      Her goal was to defat Ares.

      ‘You’ll see.’, she had told Steve.

      Just as she had showed him the sword – God Killer.

      The mention of ice cream made her smile. The Prince loved ice cream and was blessed to have been introduced to this wonder of wonders! ”If it ony it grew on trees.” Diana smiled at him with the mention of it. Although she then nodded and her smile disappeared somewhat. ”Yes. I do believe that gods may be involved. Which goes against what I have been told.” She had an uneasy feeling about this. ”Innocents could be in danger, however.” Gods didn’t play nice nor fair.

      The Gods Were Involved….

      However…

      Not In The Way That:

      Diana Prince Imagined…

      Nor:

      Steve Imagined..

      ______________

      Captain Kirk asks, “Have we found, The Princess and Her Knight yet, Chekov?”

      Chekov replies, “No Sirr. Therrrr Siims Tuu Be aaa Sheiiild arround Diss Planitt. They must avvv chosen Diss Planit fur a Reiisson Sir”

      Kirk managed to wrap his head around Chekovs response, “Is there any possible way to dismantle said shield Chekov?”

      Chekov again replies, “…That wuuuuld expose our orbital posiiiiiiiiiition, Sir” However, Chekov says, “Weee cuuld usssee the Borg Cutting Beam?”

      Scotty walks onto the Bridge and directs his attention to Kirk, “You cannnae just Beam anyone down there Sir”

      Those upon the Bridge, were privy to what was on the view-screen:

      Which was a Terrifying Hoard of Warriors, Closing in Upon…The Pair.

      Night Was Closing In Upon, The Pair, As Well…Not The Best Odds…

      .

      Kirk makes an executive decision, “…Once the Shields have been dismantled. We’ll need an expeditionary team on the surface to bring them up here” Guess who that team was going to involve?

      Night was indeed closing in on the Princess and her Knight.

      Among other things.

      Things Diana didn’t know of.

      Yet she should expect there to be trouble.

      Along the way.

      ”Do you wish to set up camp?” Diana asked, only now realizing the dark. Not that it scared her but traveling was always trickier at night. They could spare the night, she imagined. ”The dark will slow us down. Unless you wish to proceed?” She would leave that up to her beloved soldier. Not always was she the one having the final say.

      Steve turns around upon the Horse…

      And it’s only there…

      That he hears….

      The first trace…

      Of a sound…

      That isn’t….There’s

      “We’re Being Followed”

      Steve Demands,

      “Where are we? You have to tell me now!”

      “So that WE can fight, what’s looming all around us!!”

      “Tell me what to do! So that we can win this!”

      Followed. Hunted. Watched.

      Without their knowledge and consent.

      Only when Steve mentioned he heard something,

      Did she hear it as well.

      The forest had been quiet up until now.

      Almost deathly so.

      Diana stopped and turned as well.

      The worry was evident, in both his voice and his features.

      Was she worried? Yes.

      But she tried to not let it show.

      ”I… cannot explain it fully.” Diana was trying, however. ”It is a place. I have not seen it. Ever.” But they were being followed. Which meant they were not the only ones with this knowledge. ”We must hold them off. If they find this… place…” Paused for a moment as she looked around. Trees. Many. Could be used for tactics?

      ”We could use the trees. To either avoid the enemy…” Didn’t really sound like something she would suggest. ”… or we fight them.” By now she had gotten off her horse. They had to do something. Guerilla tactics was her idea. Or to avoid.

      Diana alluded to, ‘Hiding in The Trees?’

      Which made Steve actually consider her thought with a grin, “Setup preliminary traps”, he actually points to the area that’s around them, “And put them onto a false trail” He’s thinking that her idea could actually WORK. Causing Steve to grab some necessary explosives. Not heavy duty, just enough to break down a door for a factory and half the block with it! “Then we’ll fight! We’ll be ready to fight!” Plans were set! They’ve got a chance now!

      ______________________________________________________________

      Meanwhile, Hikaru Sulu pointed out, “…The barrier was removed at a direct portion above The Pair and The Warriors Surrounding them Sir. Transport and weapons usage, can now be utilized”

      Kirk grinned with the news, “…With this barrier portion removed, can we separate the warriors from the pair?”

      Hikaru Sulu agrees, “…We can annihilate them from here, Sir”

      Kirk nodded, “Make it So”

      Hikaru Sulu, returned to the dash-board to grant access for the weapons to the coordinates upon the planet below.

      Scotty was already back in the Transport area, readying possible coordinates for a number of expeditionary teams / rescue teams.

      Indeed, it must have come as a surprise to Steve that Diana would even suggest something tactical over just rushing in. Yes – she could still be naive, reckless and a number of other things but spending time with Steve had taught her things as well. Not to mention Amazons knew how to use tactics in battle and knew them well.

      Diana smirked at him. Hiding was a strong word. But it was more so to possibly get the jump on their enemy. An enemy that either knew less than she did… or more. Right now she wasn’t entirely sure which one terrified her the most. ”I’ll set a trail and you set the traps.” Sounded like a plan, right? This could actually work.

      The trail would consist of horseshoe prints. While Diana was on the back of her horse, she made sure Steve’s horse followed, leaving tacks in the mud/forest dirt. Once a trail had been set, she got off the horse and took a route through the bushes as to not mess up the trail she had made.

      With the renewed activity upon the ground, Sulu was the first to point out, via the view-screen, “….The Princess is taking the horses towards the waters, Sir”

      Kirk agrees, “….Allow this to unfold. I want to see how this Knight of Hers, can handle himself?”

      “The Pair are up on the view-screen now, Sir”

      “And that’s Exactly Where We Want Them”, though more stoic features are readily apparent for Kirk.

      Closer to the waters, to try and lead their pursuers to nothing but the shore.

      If they were able to lose those following them, it would save them trouble.

      The way she saw it, and most likely Steve, it was a sound plan.

      Trouble would surely appear sooner or later.

      But if they could dodge this one?

      Little did they know they were being watched…

      On her way back to Steve, via the trees and their branches, she was on the lookout for the enemy. Who knew she was able to play it in a stealthy manner? By now, Steve should have set those traps. Which meant the enemy was more than likely closing in.

      Steve decided that the best way to end the quiet!

      Was to bring The War to their oppressors!

      Not only were the high-powered-explosives-effective?

      Due to the Screams! The Charring of Skin from Bones!

      No: Plane. No: Crew. No Problem for Steve!

      He grinned over to Diana and winked at her….

      The seemingly quiet forest wouldn’t remain quiet for much longer.

      A large boom was heard throughout!

      Fire was seen, as were birds scared by the sound.

      The trap had been set, judging by the screams.

      Diana saw the grin and wink from her Soldier Knight.

      Diana gave him that look.

      That one look that could mean,

      Just about anything.

      ”Did you get them all, do you think?” She was still on guard, incase more would show up. It was hard to say at this point. ”That was… it was impressive.” The trap. Thing. Rest assured the look she gave him had been one of approval.

      “Yeah” Steve Replies, and then he sees The Germans landing upon the shores? His face drops for a good long time: And then he raises his Shot-gun to hopefully pick them off in Groups! “DIANA!!”

      —————————————————————————

      “Beam them both up, Scotty!” Kirk orders Scotty, “Beam them to Separate Accommodations. Make sure that they’re both Secured and Comfortable, before I arrive to officially greet them” Another brief pause, “..Bring the necessary Sensitives, to the Magical’s, to those areas and make sure: That The Pair are aware of their….Situation”

      “Yes Sir. I’ll make it happen Sir!”

      Perhaps it was just a scouting party. One that wasn’t large enough to be considered a squad or even smaller army. Even as some of the trees were burning and animals were scared, Diana eventually smiled at him. ”Wonderful.” Some good news, atleast.

      Although they wouldn’t last. His face dropped and he shouted her name! More trouble!

      Diana got her sword and shield ready to fight off those close enough, while Steve took them on at range. Her sword and shield were not those she used in World War 1, since they had been lost at the time. But they looked similar.

      Kirk, Bones and Spock would be waiting for their Paired Arrivals. One can imagine that Force Crush, from a number of Gifted Individuals: would result in likewise guests who seek to Obey, their contributors. If The Princess sought to use her, God-wave: there would be even more harrowing trouble for Her Knight….In the meantime: Kirk is waiting, for the First Arrival….

      (Minus Khan in the cell. The pair would have a cell, just like the one that’s pictured. Force Disarm would be utilized, as well as: Force Crush, to their insides, as soon as they appeared inside of each of their cells).

      The fighting felt rather shortlived. Or perhaps it felt that way because it was? Diana and Steve had fought just a few of them, using whatever tricks they might have up their sleeves. Steve’s shotgun and creative ways of fighting… and Diana the God-Killer with her sword, shield and Amazonian martial arts.

      It was as if everything… disappeared. In a glowing light. Had the gods found them? Were they the ones who had sent those people? Surely they would have sent more powerful beings than mere men. A bright light surrounded the Princess and her Knight.

      First they were met with people they had never seen. Sadly, neither Steve nor Diana had much time to study the new faces, since they were met by pain – pain that seemed to come from nowhere. Force Crush, would be the name of that. Which was all new to them. Never had they heard of the Force or anything like that. Rest assured it was painful, even if Diana would have been more resistant to it, due to being immune to magic and the Force being similar. But no, she felt the pain too. What hurt the most was seeing Steve in pain.

      Even the Force Disarm worked wonders, which meant both Diana and Steve were without weapons at this point.

      ”Stop! Don’t.. hurt her…” Steve said between gritted teeth, caused by that pain that was felt from the inside. Seeing Diana in pain was as painful to him as it was for Diana seeing him in pain. ”What is it… you want?” Had to ask, even if the pain hadn’t stopped. If it ever would?

      They were in too much pain to notice how much this strange man in uniform looked just like Captain Steve Trevor. Spooky!

      Kirk was focusing upon the one who was the most silent.

      Diana. Miss Diana Prince. Either of them could whine?

      They could even complain about their treatment?

      They could? But someone else came to stand near Kirk.

      Khan. John Harrison, who states, “Sorry I’m late”

      Kirk simply nods, then directs his attention back to, “Diana”, with a big old grin, “…You look like You’re In a Pinch”, and stands directly in front of her cell, “…Are you going to be the type to promise and to obey, for your Soldier? Or do I have to get others involved, to focus on him alone?”

      Steve was usually the one talking, with Diana either stating her mind and being stubborn as always.

      But the focus from the look-alike seemed to be on Diana. His Diana.

      Sure, she could protect herself. And then some.

      But people seemed to forget how much HE had protected her as well.

      And why did he speak as if he knew of Diana?

      ”We could have… discussed this over… coffee…” Or something. ”Like adults?” Steve, no. Being witty wouldn’t help here. Here was hoping Diana would prove to be somewhat more… cooperative. Not that Steve was necessarily resisting. More due to there being nothing he could really do here. Still – Diana wasn’t one to heed warnings like these. Not even from him. So he gave her a look that pretty much said ‘Please try? Just for now?’

      He uttered her name. The look-alike. As if he knew her. Even going formal. But she did not know him. Aside from him looking like Steve. She had to look at them both, in between the pain that was coursing through her body. Diana looked up at him, even after one of his allies came into the room. ”I do not know you.” Statement of the day right there.

      Obey? He asked for obedience when nothing had been said or done. ”Why are we here? And who are you?”

      Since they were playing ball…

      Kirk and Crew, could let down the pain levels…

      Which would happen for, The Pair: causing them to drop back down onto the floor…

      The Force Crush, however: was Halted. Even despite their small, remaining protests…

      Kirk could live with, The Pair, starting to feel almost human again. ALMOST………………

      Kirk continues to focus upon, The Lovely Diana, with a grin.

      Trade-mark grin. While Khan the gang, starts to chuckle about, The Pair…

      Not Knowing Who He is…..Being so careful to be So very VAGUE…

      Kirk allows this to occur, then rather stoically says to Diana, “…You adore your little island, out there, in the middle of now-where? I’m sure” Already Promises, “…But this is where you have to think?” Kirk pauses, “Your Silly Little Island? Or your Man Crush over here?” He used crushed just for that humiliating purpose. Because it can happen again. And, Again….

      Thankfully, the pair was let down after what felt like an eternity of pain. Down onto the floors of the cells. The way he focused on her didn’t sit well with either herself or Steve. Whatever they had said, seemed to have lessened the pain and gained their attention. For better or worse.

      Why was he speaking of Themiscyra? No one would know of it. No one from the outside world. Unless told about it. For a moment she almost feared Steve might have accidentally told someone. Would he make such a mistake, though? By now, she was trying to get her footing and standing up. Diana was a proud being and laying down just wasn’t her style. Though glances were cast to make sure Steve was alright.

      ”That is not a choice I can make.” Diana stated as the Crush happened again! ”I left home! I left MY home.” Diana stated, hoping that would ease the suffering of herself and Steve. ”That decision is not upto me.”

      Kirk is still mulling over the possibilities with Diana Prince…

      Then over to the known, Human: Steve Trevor. Captain, no less…

      Thinking. Conspiring. “…I could have him sent over to Sick Bay, so that his injuries are properly tended to?” However: The Force Crush, has once again: Stopped. “…I would need your Honest Truth…That you’ll behave properly, while he’s in Our Care…..Do I have that, former princess?”

      Former princess. Was that the truth? Honestly, she didn’t know. She had not returned to Themiscyra after defeating Ares. Were they even aware of his defeat? Most likely. So whether or not she was still a princess upon those lands, she couldn’t honestly say. Neither here or there at the moment. Diana had left Paradise Island with Steve. She had agreed to help him fight the War to End All Wars.

      Steve had managed to find himself in a seated position now, with his back to the nearest wall. Right now he was catching his breath, trying to determine if any or all organs were still intact. Oh dear. The pain was unlike anything he had ever experienced. Even Diana had shown signs of pain. And that was saying something. ”Diana… I don’t need the… Sick Bay.” He said in between breaths. Perhaps he did, perhaps he didn’t. Steve sure didn’t trust these guys. Especially not someone that looked just like him!

      All she had to do was to behave properly while Steve was being tended to. For a moment she pondered that. Diana was… stubborn, at best. And naive. Her behaving was not the same as that of those of Man’s World. But she could behave. Maybe. When it came to Steve, she had little choice. If she didn’t, he would suffer. That wasn’t something she would allow happening.

      She looked at Steve for a moment, listening to his words. What was the alternative? Suffering more physical and emotional pain? That was a no go for her. Then she looked back to Kirk.

      ”And when he has been healed? Then what?” Diana asked. Could she abide by rules? Somewhat. ”We cannot stay here for too long.” In truth – they couldn’t stay here at all. They were losing precious time. ”If it means that no harm comes to him, then I will behave.” Or try to.

      Mulling.

      Whining.

      Deciding…

      Man! He’s Got a Tough Job Ahead of Him!

      “You’ve both bent my arm” No, they haven’t: Kirk. “…I’ll let Steve out of the Cell, so that he can be tended for. Right Here” Kirk admits, “…Everyone gets to see each other. How does that sound?”

      ”If we had bent your arm, you would know of it.” Diana, no. She probably didn’t get the meaning. Hence her statement just then. However – he came with an offer that she could adhere to. Since it would involve Steve getting treated. He needed it more than she did, due to having superhuman healing factor herself. Injuries would heal faster than that of a human.

      Steve couldn’t help but smile ever so slightly at her comment. More so since she could do just that. But it was down to Diana here, since the Look-Alike (Kirk) seemed to be focusing most if not all attention to her.

      ”That sounds like something I can agree to.” Diana nodded slowly once he had spoken.

      Kirk: gave the indication to allow Steve out of the cell and right onto a hospital bed, to take care of his injuries. In fact, Bones had a bed prepared with all of the proper medical equipment ready to go: just in case this happened! Kirk had struck again! Silver-Tongued….something!

      And even Further: Steve wasn’t even restrained on that hospital bed. Kirk, for all of his previous horrors: had kept to his Good Word. Thus. FAR….

      “Is that satisfactory, Miss Diana Prince? Are either of you hungry? Do you need assistance, with what was going on for that nasty planet down below? We can help. I can help” Besides freeing them….

      Steve was let out of his cell, as promised. There was even a hospital bed with medical equipment. So far this person had kept his word. But would that last? How long until he did something else? Changed his mind? While he had kept his word, she needed more than that to say she trusted him.

      Meanwhile, her Knight seemed grateful for the bed at this point. Better than the cell. No restraints either! Well, weren’t they just lucky. Food sounded nice, since it had been a while since they last ate. ”Food wouldn’t hurt.” Steve said. ”I hope?” Never knew with these people.

      ”For now, yes.” Satisfactory, that was. The food topic was something Steve had given the answer to. Although the question from Kirk was interesting. ”Why are you so quick to offer help?” She asked as she looked at him. ”What makes you think we even need help?”

      Old Bones, had some food trays brought in from the Cafeteria.

      However, Steve was getting a liquid diet, due to his injuries, “Sorry Steve”, Bones muttered, as if this has happened more times than he can count. “I’m McCoy. A Doctor. And: ONLY A DOCTOR. No a Scientist. Not a physicist—-” Bones continued on about the professions that he is NOT.

      Kirk was studying Steve’s reaction to the new information, while he glanced over to Diana. However, Kirk took the time to take her aside, “You’re wanted by very unsavory people” He says, with this great air of conspiracy, “…I had to bring you both in this way for a reason”

      Food trays were seen by both Diana and Steve. Sadly, Steve wouldn’t be able to enjoy the food in the ordinary manner. Liquid diet. Oh, bummer! Not that he imagined the food to be overly great here but still… liquid diet? Then a rambling doctor by the name of McCoy. He just looked at McCoy from where he was laying. ”Well that’s neat.” Steve was… unsure what else to say. Had this feeling he might get hurt for saying the wrong thing.

      Although he accepted the food, even so once it was given to him. Maybe it would be his last meal? Never knew. Still though – liquid die?! What even was that, anyway? The thoughts a man has after being injured. The Questions of Life.

      Diana watched Steve for a moment as he appeard… content, for lack of a better word. Even the smallest of smiles upon her lips. Before she was taken aside by that Look-Alike. Why did he look just like Steve? It was… odd. Very odd. Unsavory people. Had to take them in. Words that confused her, yet… this could have to do with the strange rumors. Possible. Since that was mostly what she had in regards to the current situation. Rumors. And a gut feeling.

      ”I don’t suppose you consider yourself one of these ‘unsavory people’ you speak of?” Ouch. Well… the welcome hadn’t been the best. Trust Diana to not let that go anytime soon. ”Who are you? Why do you want us? And why…” A brief pause as she studied him. ”Why do you look like Steve?”

      Kirk must have stepped, right on through Diana’s Cell Barrier, with ease. Even as the Cell Barrier returned to its Solid State. Kirk grinned, as if adding to the horror factor, “…Someone….even more unsavory than me….Is running this show”, he says, “…And on-board with me….Right on this Ship”, by now, Kirk is pacing around Diana and has long since sequestered their voices to this cell alone. No one can hear her! No One. “…The thing is here, Diana? I want to help you. Unlike My….Associate” Nods to confirm that FACT, “…Wants to execute the both of you. The Pair”, Kirk states, “So what’ll it be? Work with me? Or my Associate? Take your pick?” Till Kirk’s eyes were furiously locked with Dianas…

      Whoever or whatever he was, he couldn’t be human. Since he just passed through the cell barrier. Which was something she had never seen before. This of course meant she was in her cell – with him! He truly wanted something. But the question was – what? He wasn’t overly forthcoming. Diana was also unaware of the conversation between her and Kirk were for them only in that cell.

      Was she freaked out? Not really, since she didn’t scare easily. But she was confused and uncertain. And she feared for Steve’s safety more than her own. She could handle more, to put it mildly. He was grinning. For some reason. ”So you are not truly in charge.” Diana stated, even if it was meant more as a question. Made her wonder who this Associate of his was?

      As he paced around her, her gaze flicked to him on occasion. He was like a predator and she the prey. But she had been in that situation before – where the hunter became the hunted. ”While I do not trust you, nor your Associate…” Her gaze locked with his. ”You have atleast made your presence known.” Dying wasn’t on their agenda. Neither of them.

      He evaded the question for a reason. Probably a touchy subject. The pacing could be because he was nervous? Diana didn’t trust either him or this… Associate. But in order to get out of here and escape, they had to come up with something. And it just might have presented itself. Maybe. Just maybe.

      ”Then we will help you.” Not that she liked the prospect of that any. They didn’t have time for this. Whoever this Associate was, they sounded dangerous. Yet who knew – maybe this guy was the unsavory one and playing tricks on their minds?

      “Why you were on that planet? Who were you after?” Because Kirk gets daring, and says, “…And If this will give you consolation prize?” More of a long pause, “…Something…An Inner Feeling….Told me to get to this planet, too” Nods, “…And not just because of you and your soldier boy over there”

      Steve, is still being treated and likely tranquilized to get the medicine to work faster. Steve’s bed is rolled closer to Diana’s Cell; to keep her at ease, and a testament to Kirks Trust.

      Having Steve closer to her cell did indeed ease her. Atleast somewhat. So far, the man had kept his word. But things were still new and confusing. Maybe following the rumors was a bad idea? No… something was going on and it had to be dealt with. Accordingly.

      ”I do not know.” Diana stated, which probably sounded stranger. ”Following a rumor. Promise of a new future.” That was basically it. ”The gods may be involved.” Then he mentioned an inner feeling. Similar to hers? ”A strong gut feeling?” As for the comment about Steve, she narrowed her eyes at him. ”He’s a man, not a boy.”

      He went silent all of a sudden. Maybe she said something wrong? Or maybe it was the arrival of the Associate. Who just happened to be female. Once Kirk was silent, her gaze went to the new arrival.

      ”We’ve been searching all over for you.” Specifically – Diana and Steve. So she was glad to see that they had both been found. Even if Steve was in a state, which she spotted almost instantly.

      She knew that their relationship was… tense, at best. Different views and all that. She had her reasons for that, though. More so due to her sister. That didn’t help matters any. She noticed that Kirk was within the same cell as Diana was.

      ”If we’re going to get to know our new guests, which I assume we are, then you may as well let them walk freely.” She said, looking at those present. ”Instead of sharing cells with them.”

      Diana wasn’t sure what to make of this woman. Atleast she hadn’t used pain, threats and extortion upon arrival. ”Will you let us out?” Diana asked, glancing to Kirk for a moment.

      “I got a better idea” Kirk No! Not The Time!!

      “Release My Item” Not Happy! “…If not? I’ll free them! The Pair, and you’ll never see them again” Kirk remained in the cell with Diana, because maybe it was somewhat safer: all while giving Diana something of a side-glance, and then to the unknown associate, His Associate, before them….

      Even Steve was teleported back into the cell, with the hospital bed/apparatuses…

      His item? Right. That. He wanted it back. She knew he did. Something that was always brought up, really. He hadn’t chosen the best of times to try and get it back. Releasing them wouldn’t really be a huge deal to her. ”After all you went through to find them?” Danvers asked. ”I would argue against it but if you choose to release them?” A shrug. Indifferent.

      Diana wasn’t sure what to make of the situation, although she could tell there were problems between the man and woman. So she glanced at Kirk, then to Danvers. ”What item?” She was curious. ”I agreed to help him.” Diana being honest was… not always the best. ”But we were never introduced.” What was she getting at. ”You could all get along.”

      Possibly. Maybe. Diana did catch the stare, however. Right now she felt they were wasting time. These two people didn’t concern her. Why they had intervened was beyond her knowledge. And when Diana was confused, she oftentimes did reckless things. Bound to happen here again.

      The ship suddenly stopped, which made many people lose balance, along with the objects that were not literally stuck. Which of course meant that the Associate was now surrounded. By thirty. Diana wasn’t sure if this was a good idea at all. So what did she do? Well…

      If at all possible, she kicked the back of Kirk’s leg in an attempt to wrap one arm around his neck, holding him hostage. ”Tell the guards to leave. Now.” To Kirk. Why she was doing this, she didn’t know. ”We solve this without guns.”

      And if said move didn’t work, then she might just have started her own version of a prison riot.

      The Associate smiled with those words, although had her hands raised. ”I’d listen to the Princess.” Yep. Things could get out of hand here and fast. ”Do this and I might give you the item.”

      The Neck Hold wasn’t going to do squat against Him!

      Out! He’s literally out of her hold, as soon as Diana voices her words!

      Enraged, however: That she chose the Associates Side in all of this!

      Maybe it was a female thing? Maybe it was an Amazon thing?

      And one of Kirk’s only real chances to Quell This Associate Any Further…

      In truth she hadn’t chosen a side at all. Neither of them felt like trustworthy people. Diana had just been… reckless. As always. The neckhold seemed pointless and useless. He was gone as soon as she had spoken. Well then. Perhaps she made things worse? Well neither of these two understood what was at stake! Diana and Steve had been kept from important business.

      Seeing as the officers lowered their phasers/guns, The Associate nodded in thanks. ”That’s better. We can all be civilized.” Indeed, they could. As for the item, that was yet to be discussed.

      ”We do not have time to be here. Me and Steve are on important business and we’re being kept from it.” Diana was clearly not pleased. ”If you have issues, solve them.” She was a believer in compassion and love. ”We either help both or none at all.” The Princess starting to make demands.

      ”You were attempting the same moments ago. So do not try and act innocent.” Diana glared at Kirk. Sure, she had no idea what was truly going on here. And maybe she should have asked about that. Yet she was still trapped. In a cell. So was Steve. These two weren’t helping matters any. ”I do not trust YOU! I don’t trust HER!” Well then. ”Your item is alive?”

      “Alive” Kirk Was Compromised, a little over a few months ago, when: The Associate boarded His Ship. And each Guest that he’s retrieved on-board, has been used as a matter of fact, to change the current situation. Which, now is mute: considering that The Associate, knows of his plans. Once Kirk steps out of the cell, it’s over. “…Don’t go out there, Diana” He warns…

      ”Who or what is it? I need to know.” If there was any way of doing this smoothly, she had to know that atleast. Kirk looked concerned so there was definitely a past between him and the Associate. He even warned her to not go out there. ”Even if I wanted to, I can’t.” Due to it being locked.

      ”Are you going to be in that cell?” To Kirk. ”I’m willing to negotiate here. Which seems to be the case with Diana as well.”

      “She wants ME To Release you, Diana and Steve” Kirk replies, “…Next. You’ll both be killed” He’s witnessed it, one too many times. He leans ever closer towards Diana, “I tried to warn you”, as low as possible, “She’ll go for Steve First” Though Kirk is using his own powers to keep Steve safe, from the very men who were helping him, only moments ago. So that they can’t get into Steve’s Cell. “She’s been plotting a hostile-take-over-of-my-ship since she’s boarded it” To Diana, “…She’ll kill everyone-on-board”

      Diana narrowed her eyes as she listened to Kirk speak. Yet here she was – wanting to try and solve whatever dispute they might have. Something she learned during and after the War to End All Wars. Diana wasn’t so easily killed, so she wasn’t too worried about that. Steve was the main concern. ”Is it true? That you intend to kill us?” Gathering the words from Kirk now.

      ”If I wanted to kill you, I would have.” Atleast she wasn’t denying that. ”Did I intend to? Yeah, I did. But things just got more interesting.” Oh dear. ”He sees potential in both of you.” Interesting indeed. ”You could both prove useful.”

      “And who is this mysterious person?” Because it wasn’t Him. The Associate, never listens to Him. Then to Diana, “….She’ll Kill You. This is just fodder to get you to leave these confines. You’re Safe in Here” Remarkably, Kirk lowers his voice even more, “…I’m Keeping your friend safe”, as if that was a consolation, “….The Minute that I’m out there. He’s Dead. She’ll keep you around as a Kill Device. Nothing More”

      ”Could I still kill you? Yes, yes I could. Will I?” Left that hanging for a moment. Not denying or comfirming that. ”Isn’t it a bit… strange? He’s in the cell. With you. Yet Steve is the one who needs medical attention.” Oh noes. ”Injuries caused by him, no less.” This wasn’t good. ”I’ve been polite so far.”

      Diana couldn’t deny that yes, Kirk had been the one to injure Steve. And this woman hadn’t done anything so far. So she was torn. ”We cannot stay. Me and Steve need to go. This is a delay.” She glanced at Kirk, unsure what she could really do in this situation. Powerless.

      “SHE’S LYING!!!—” Then stumbles with his words, because he did HAVE Force Crush used upon the new guests! Kirk turns to Diana, “…I’VE WITNESSED HER KILL” He was trying to keep his emotions in check, “…It’s a sport for Her!” Steve is currently in his own cell: but that changes, (because Kirk teleports him into the cell with himself and Diana). Then Kirk stares back towards Diana, “…It was the only way to get you both on-board” Kirk details, while taking pot-shot-glances to the divider between them and DEATH, “…My crew….My…” Faint smile/frown, “….They work for her now. So that they can keep their heads” Sniffs, “…She’s going to kill us all….”

      Lies. She hated them. The truth was always better. Well… almost always. Kirk was definitely in a state. And now Steve was with them as well. Diana was utterly lost right now. Both were saying things about the other and she didn’t even know them. Lost. Confused. She wanted to help both. Naive Diana is naive.

      ”How about we all behave and I won’t kill anyone? How does that sound?” The Associate offered. ”Behavior for behavior.” Sounded rather fair, right? ”You two make yourselves useful and I won’t kill anyone here.” She then looked at Kirk. ”Including him.”

      ”I already agreed to both behave and help him.” Motioning for Kirk. ”I can do the same again.” Even if she didn’t like what she was hearing, they were just words against words. She didn’t know either of them and was unable to judge them accordingly. Everyone made mistakes, though. Right now she was caught between a rock and a hard place. So was Steve. ”We’ll behave.” She said once more. ”Just do not hurt anyone.” Including Kirk.

      The Associate pondered that. Sounded promising. She saw no issue with that. ”Now that’s something I can work with.” Then glanced to Kirk. ”Sometimes you just have to get in there and do what needs to be done.” In other words – rushing in. Much like she had done just now. ”Is this satisfactory to you too?” To Kirk. ”Or will things have to get out of hand? Again.”

      Kirk turned away from, Diana and Steve: who hopefully, was awake by now, from the medications that were distributed? Although, Kirk has heard the Associates promises before to other unlikely candidates, before Diana, before Steve. Dire. Kirk simply turns around to face what may be coming at them. Kirk Nods in return, but his freedom days are over.

      “I’ll come out” Kirk attests, “If you leave our guests alone. Do Not Harm Them”

      The Associate watched him as he turned way from Diana and Steve. ”Why are they even locked up?” She asked and didn’t see the need for it. ”Way to make them feel welcome. Putting them through pain… extortion and put them in a cell.” Shook her head. ”And I’m the bad one.” Oh dear.

      ”Our guests should be treated as guests.” The Associate said. ”You first, then the Princess and her Knight will be allowed to walk freely.” Tilting her head ever so slightly. ”Unless you’ve got something to hide from them?”

      Kirk stepped out of the cell, beyond the solids, and those solids, closed right back up again: once he was outside of the cell. He waited for a lot more effects to happen, once he stood where his hands could be seen. He knows this drill too damn well by now.

      The Associate watched Kirk closely as he stepped out of the cell. Perhaps more than she should have. There was no denying that she found him attractive, despite everything. It was what it was. Once Kirk was outside, she smirked. ”See? That went well.”

      ”Now… we’re going to let our guests out of their cell. And show them some good hospitality.” Whatever that meant.

      There was only disgust, around: The Associate…

      And the minute that the pair are free, he’s DEAD…

      Or close to it? Or …..worse? However…

      Kirk releases the pair from their cells…

      Once the pair were released, Diana rolled out the hospital bed from the cell. So far so good, right? Honestly they had to get out of here. And fast. ”Now we are all free.” Our out of the cells, more like. ”What happens now?” She looked at Kirk and the Associate.

      ”Now that would be up to the Captain.” She smiled and looked at Kirk. Well then. Someone was playing nice. ”Still in charge. For the most part. However, as a doctor, I would strongly recommend that Steve here is moved to Sick Bay.”

      Kirk couldn’t hide the concerns within his features….

      The Captain, however would try to make things right in the pairs favor, “…Scotty?”

      He says, “Send them back them back to their previous planet”

      It would be EARTH. Not the Earth where found in….

      Scotty confirms, “You got it Sir!”

      And they were beamed out of there….

      But where would that leave Kirk and The Associate?

      Once she found out?

      Not exactly what the Associate had planned. But since Kirk was the one who found the pair, they were also his responsibility. Now they had been let go. She watched as they were beamed down to Earth. A different Earth. So her gaze went to Kirk. ”Is this what you wanted? To let them go completely?” She allowed the question to linger, though he doubted this was what he truly wanted.

      ”We both know this wasn’t your original plan.” She watched him closely. ”You could have had them here, making them useful.”

      Meanwhile, Diana and Steve would now be anywhere but on the ship. But what would the area look like? And where were they? Neither would know. ”Steve?” Diana called out, incase he wasn’t as close to her as she had hoped. ”Steve?!”

      On closer inspection, it looked like a hospital. A modern one. Not the kind they were used to. So Diana was stunned, almost. ”Where are we?”

      In Truth: Diana Prince and Steve Trevor, could have helped him out a great deal.

      The Reality: Is that he had to free them to gain any sense of reputation. Bad Start.

      However, with The Pair now gone? And Safe, it left only Kirk and…Not So Good Odds.

      “It was the right thing to do” Kirk replies, ever wary of those that remained…

      ”The right thing. Maybe.” She repeated that, pondered it. ”But was it the best of moves? They could have helped you, they could have helped me.” A win-win for both, potentially. ”You want to follow them, yet you’re scared what’ll happen to the ship while you’re gone.” More of a wild guess than anything.

      ”If there was nothing else, I suppose it’s return to duty as usual?”

      Best of moves: Kirk is still unsure at this point.

      His Ship. His Crew. She’s got His Item…Not Here…

      Kirk cleared his throat, “…Where is your next destination?”

      Plotting. Scheming. Both of those.

      Although not currently.

      No set plan.

      Which was oftentimes more scary,

      Than actually having one.

      ”Observation. From a distance.” That seemed to be the plan for now. Whatever that entialed, was unknown. ”I want to see what they’re capable of and if they can be useful.” Surely there was something about the pair. ”They were on that planet for a reason.”

      “There are other targets. The Pair are to be left alone”

      He says, “They’ve had enough of our….hospitality”

      She observed him as he objected to her orders. Now whether or not she would abide by that, was another topic entirely. Still… she did allow him some control here. Maybe because she was keen on it being so. Or because it suited her playstyle. Either was a possibility.

      ”It’s ironic that’s coming from you. Who did all of that.” But she could play by those rules. Maybe. ”But we’ll do it that way, then. Captain.”

      Kirk is largely Silent with her words….

      Until he replies, “…Let me see the item”….

      He was unsure how to ask, due to previous times where Dr. Alexandra Danvers, paid for it with a drowning…And he couldn’t / he wouldn’t go through that again, “…I haven’t seen her in three days. I need verification. I need her brought onto the ship”

      The item was brought up once again. Yet he had behaved. Somewhat. And she wasn’t without a heart. She knew how to feel, how to show compassion. It was just… difficult. Due to things that had happened. Or maybe it was just to try and make the pain even worse for him.

      ”Three days is a long time.” She said and motioned for him to follow. ”Come on then, you know the way.” She was already starting to walk, allowing him to follow.

      It appears to be aaaaaa, trailer park this time around?

      It changed, from to time. A trailer park was what he would see at first. But no, his item wouldn’t be spotted just yet. Nope. She was leading him to a room with monitors and everything else one might imagine.

      Once there, the woman pushed a few buttons. Ones that made the screens come to life and his item would be on screen. The female looked at him. ”She can hear you but not see you.” Horrible. Just horrible.

      On the screen would be his Item – Dr. Alexandra Danvers. Alone. In a room. Terrified. But she wasn’t aware she could be heard or that Kirk was able to speak to her. But the sight of the state she was in might not be the most pleasant.

      The Associate was mostly silent but was smirking ever so slightly. Water. Something Kirk disliked and feared. He had ever reason to do so. Which of course made it even worse seeing his beloved being put through the same. It was possible even Danvers was starting to fear water herself. In the room she was in, there was already water on the floor. Enough to soak her very boots.

      Danvers’ eyes widened as she heard his voice. She didn’t know where from but it was there! ”Jim?!” Her hazel eyes desperatel looked for him, where his voice came from. ”Is that you?” She could hear him, yet it was evident she was confused and disoriented.

      The Associate ‘accidentally’ pressed a button for a few seconds, which sprinkled water on Dr. Alexandra Danvers. Enough so for the woman to cover her face with her arms. ”Please not again!” The woman was terrified. ”Jim please help me…” She just wanted to be with him again, be safe.

      Indeed powerless. For now, it had only been a sprinkle of water. But she could a lot more, a lot worse. The Associate just appeared devoid of emotion at that point. A face that contained no remorse for the terror she put Danvers and Kirk through. Silent. Observing. Two birds one rock. His voice of reason within view, yet far away. Danvers’ shining star within hearing distance, yet so far away.

      Danvers listened to Kirks voice and tried to focus onto where the voice came from. The video camera was the only means she saw. So she nodded twice. Rapidly. Poor woman was in shock and now having all sorts of emotions running amok after hearing his voice. ”I’m c-concentrating.” To say the room was cold would be understatement. And adding water to that – it was safe to assume she was shivering. ”Me t-too. Anything. Please… I ju-just want to b-be with him… have to…”

      ”Anything?” The Associate looked at Kirk for a moment with that offer. Even Danvers had offered it. ”What are you willing to do for her to be free again?”

      Normally, Danvers would have said he shouldn’t listen to the bad guys, nor adhere to their demands. But right now it seemed to be the only way out for her. For them to unite again. It had been so long since she last felt his touch, heard his voice against her ear. Time was a floating thing and she had no idea for how long she had been captured. Days… weeks… months… it was hard to say. She would do anything to be with him again. Her hazel eyes looked into the camera as she awaited an answer from the imposter.

      The Associate pondered this. A golden opportunity for her. There were a few things she could demand and some she even wanted. Diana and Steve were a no-go for now. However, Kirk had a lot of things. ”Your ship. And your crew.” Oh noes. ”Give them to me and you’ll be dropped down on the planet below.” Presumably the same Earth Diana and Steve went to moments ago. ”I’ll even allow you to pack your things.” How. Generous. ”She’ll be dropped off by the shore and you’ll be alive.” A large order indeed. ”I’ll make sure the crew remembers your heroic deed.”

      Kirk immediately stood away from the chair…

      “…I can work with that!!!” However, he points to her cell, “She must be released to me now! Not Later. Right Now….” Kirk: You’re in no position to bargain here! “Take the ship! The Crew! You Got It!!” His focus is on the unholy screens: and it’s not as if even some of the crew, might try to gather a temporary rebellion. Or wait, until Kirk gets back. IT can be done!

      It could definitely be done. A rebellion or mutiny was kind of what she expected.

      And what she had prepared for.

      Perhaps there was a more evil Kirk out there?

      Just waiting for the chance to show how it’s done?

      Much like the Associate did.

      A rebellion had indeed been accounted for.

      ”Now p-please? I’m s-so c-cold.” Among other things. Anything to get out of here. She had seen enough of this place for a lifetime. But it sounded like hope. Wasn’t that what her sister always said? Hope. And… Stronger Together. That was it. Kara… where was she? How was she? Did she even know?

      ”She can be released now. Planetside. I’m not impossible here.” The Associate said, though her tone suggested that could change and it could change quickly. ”Time is ticking. Down there on the planet or not at all.” Then pondered for a moment. ”Unless you want to leave her there… on the shore… alone… who knows what manner of beasts lurk down there…” Horrible. ”Pack your things or don’t. Then leave.”

      Shore and water. Something the couple would despite by now, most likely. Kirk woud dislike it even before now. Yet he would have to face water again, in order to rescue his beloved. A few buttons were pressed then. ”Free like a fish in the sea.” The Associate smiled at him. And not that kind, genuine smile either. ”She’s all yours.” Meaning – it was done.

      Now if Kirk decided to beam down, he was able to. With or without packing.

      Danvers hadn’t been dropped on the sea shore. Not precisely. More like further out than that. In the water. Even if her limbs were weak, she tried her best to swim to the sandy sea shore in sight. But it was a struggle to even do that. But she was free. In the ocean. Once Kirk arrived, he would be able to spot her, since there was no one else to be seen here.

      Kirk was beamed down right to the shore!

      Albeit! Danvers was out in the water?

      Kirk teleported out to her location, within that fierce ocean, and then teleported her right back to the shore-line. Near the Dunes. The Giant Dunes. Rock. Rock. It looked more mythical than anything else that he’d ever witnessed. Especially those rock formations out in the SEA….

      “Danvers! I got you!!!” Holding her closer to him, in order to keep her warm!

      Wonder where they could be? Oh wait…

      Even now, when she was free was she fighting for her life. Out in the water.

      Trying to swim.

      To land that was within sight, yet so far away.

      But she was taken ahold of.

      Like an angel preventing one to pass on.

      To the Afterlife.

      She was saved.

      She was alive.

      By that rock formation. That looked mythical. Almost as if it was from the moon. Rock formations like that were all around the beach. She heard him, felt him. It was him. Her Jim. She was still dressed in that black long-sleeved shirt, her black jeans and her boots. The ones she wore he day she was kidnapped. ”Jim?” Her tone was low and it was evident she had been through a lot. Her clothes were soaked and there had been mud on them too. She was shaking from the cold, so she embraced him fully. ”Is it you?.” Words couldn’t describe how empty everything had been without him.

      “I’m here Danvers. I got you”

      Hugging Danvers as close to him, as possible!

      All while carrying her towards the Giant Dunes, to rest his back against the Rock Wall!

      Once Kirk reaches that Rock Wall, he sees a shuttle-craft appear upon the shore? What?

      Yet he sees no ship within the skies? Judging from where he’s standing, the Federation shuttle-craft looks empty? Hopefully, it was just a scare tactic on The Associates part?

      …..

      “Oh Great” Kirk muttered to himself, as the mass of Amazons came rushing towards their immediate location! And that shuttle, the empty shuttle to contact the Federation was out of his reach for now! He could teleport them both to the shuttle? Maybe? If the shuttle works? If?

      His voice and his touch were welcomed and had been missed dearly while she had been captured. So she smiled with his words, as her hazel eyes looked at him. A hand reached to stroke his chin. ”I’ve missed you so much.” It had been… too long, since she last laid eyes upon him. Then she wrapped her arms around him once more, since he did the same. Deep, emotional embrace.

      The approaching Amazons were heard, even by her. Despite the fact her ears most likely contained a lot of water at this point. ”What’s that?” Her eyes were still adjusting to the bright sun that was in the sky, warming each and everyone upon the land. Warm, yet not scorching. Just that right temperature for one to feel able to go and stay outside. Maybe they could avoid detection by laying down by the rock formation? Unlikely but not impossible. A choice had to be made and soon.

      Kirk would be able to teleport to the craft. Perhaps even use it as a hiding spot, if he decided to do that. There was no telling whether or not it would function. Let alone if it was spaceworthy. Parts may or may not have been stripped from it. Or it could simply just be lacking fuel. The choice of landing was perhaps what was the oddest thing out of all. Aside from the scratches in the paint and the mud-stains here and there, it was hard to say if it would work at all. So they had three choices;

      Remain where they were and perhaps dodge notice, by laying low? Literally.

      Teleport to the Federation shuttle in hopes of remaining unnoticed?

      Or manage to get said space shuttle working?

      The Amazons were approaching and Danvers wasn’t exactly in a very fit state.

      All the while, holding Danvers Bridal Style within his arms!

      “I’m getting us out of here”, whispering closer to her ear…

      ……

      Meanwhile, after he teleports them both into the ship!

      He’s got to get it running! Which appears to be a no-go.

      Some…important parts are missing!

      Even as he stares towards the screen viewing the approaching Amazons?

      He’s wondering if even this ship can hold up to, their Might? Their Weapons?

      Frantically, he’s hitting communication buttons, in hopes of sending….

      This had most likely beeing planned by The Associate beforehand.

      Who said she would make it easy?

      Such a request had never been uttered.

      But had sure been denied.

      No easy journey for the two.

      Danvers was carried by her Shining Star. Bridal style. Normally, she wasn’t in such a weakened state. But now, it was an emergency. Not that it was at all intended or anything. He was getting them out of here. The whisper was heard and processed. ”Like always.” She whispered in response. His words were enough reassurance to her.

      Now they were inside said ship. Right now she was against a wall, sitting down. Soon she would be able to function better. Hopefully real soon. Kirk was trying to get the ship working, although that seemed to be too much to hope for. The Amazons were approaching, judging by the screen. ”Jim!” She whispered to him. ”Get down!” Maybe they wouldn’t be seen if they just crouched down and used the various shadows within the ship.

      Outside, the Amazons were scattering, with some searching the rock formation. This group was led by Lieutenant Menalippe, one of Diana’s two aunts. ”Find them! I saw them mere moments ago!” She commanded.

      If only two or three of them get to Star-fleet, they’ll have a chance!!

      However, judging by the Amazons, they haven’t noticed the shuttle yet!

It had been so long since she last felt his touch, heard his voice against her ear. Time was a floating thing and she had no idea for how long she had been captured. Days… weeks… months… it was hard to say. She would do anything to be with him again. Her hazel eyes looked into the camera as she awaited an answer from the imposter.

      The Associate pondered this. A golden opportunity for her. There were a few things she could demand and some she even wanted. Diana and Steve were a no-go for now. However, Kirk had a lot of things. ”Your ship. And your crew.” Oh noes. ”Give them to me and you’ll be dropped down on the planet below.” Presumably the same Earth Diana and Steve went to moments ago. ”I’ll even allow you to pack your things.” How. Generous. ”She’ll be dropped off by the shore and you’ll be alive.” A large order indeed. ”I’ll make sure the crew remembers your heroic deed.”

      Kirk immediately stood away from the chair…

      “…I can work with that!!!” However, he points to her cell, “She must be released to me now! Not Later. Right Now….” Kirk: You’re in no position to bargain here! “Take the ship! The Crew! You Got It!!” His focus is on the unholy screens: and it’s not as if even some of the crew, might try to gather a temporary rebellion. Or wait, until Kirk gets back. IT can be done!

      It could definitely be done. A rebellion or mutiny was kind of what she expected.

      And what she had prepared for.

      Perhaps there was a more evil Kirk out there?

      Just waiting for the chance to show how it’s done?

      Much like the Associate did.

      A rebellion had indeed been accounted for.

      ”Now p-please? I’m s-so c-cold.” Among other things. Anything to get out of here. She had seen enough of this place for a lifetime. But it sounded like hope. Wasn’t that what her sister always said? Hope. And… Stronger Together. That was it. Kara… where was she? How was she? Did she even know?

      ”She can be released now. Planetside. I’m not impossible here.” The Associate said, though her tone suggested that could change and it could change quickly. ”Time is ticking. Down there on the planet or not at all.” Then pondered for a moment. ”Unless you want to leave her there… on the shore… alone… who knows what manner of beasts lurk down there…” Horrible. ”Pack your things or don’t. Then leave.”

      Shore! Water! Danvers will-,

      “…Down there! Now!! As soon as she’s released”

      No way to warn the crew!

      Nor other…possible hidden details!

      “I’ll go with her! Now! I don’t need to take anything from the ship!”

      Shore and water. Something the couple would despite by now, most likely. Kirk woud dislike it even before now. Yet he would have to face water again, in order to rescue his beloved. A few buttons were pressed then. ”Free like a fish in the sea.” The Associate smiled at him. And not that kind, genuine smile either. ”She’s all yours.” Meaning – it was done.

      Now if Kirk decided to beam down, he was able to. With or without packing.

      Danvers hadn’t been dropped on the sea shore. Not precisely. More like further out than that. In the water. Even if her limbs were weak, she tried her best to swim to the sandy sea shore in sight. But it was a struggle to even do that. But she was free. In the ocean. Once Kirk arrived, he would be able to spot her, since there was no one else to be seen here.

      Kirk was beamed down right to the shore!

      Albeit! Danvers was out in the water?

      Kirk teleported out to her location, within that fierce ocean, and then teleported her right back to the shore-line. Near the Dunes. The Giant Dunes. Rock. Rock. It looked more mythical than anything else that he’d ever witnessed. Especially those rock formations out in the SEA….

      “Danvers! I got you!!!” Holding her closer to him, in order to keep her warm!

      Wonder where they could be? Oh wait…

      Even now, when she was free was she fighting for her life. Out in the water.

      Trying to swim.

      To land that was within sight, yet so far away.

      But she was taken ahold of.

      Like an angel preventing one to pass on.

      To the Afterlife.

      She was saved.

      She was alive.

      By that rock formation. That looked mythical. Almost as if it was from the moon. Rock formations like that were all around the beach. She heard him, felt him. It was him. Her Jim. She was still dressed in that black long-sleeved shirt, her black jeans and her boots. The ones she wore he day she was kidnapped. ”Jim?” Her tone was low and it was evident she had been through a lot. Her clothes were soaked and there had been mud on them too. She was shaking from the cold, so she embraced him fully. ”Is it you?.” Words couldn’t describe how empty everything had been without him.

      “I’m here Danvers. I got you”

      Hugging Danvers as close to him, as possible!

      All while carrying her towards the Giant Dunes, to rest his back against the Rock Wall!

      Once Kirk reaches that Rock Wall, he sees a shuttle-craft appear upon the shore? What?

      Yet he sees no ship within the skies? Judging from where he’s standing, the Federation shuttle-craft looks empty? Hopefully, it was just a scare tactic on The Associates part?

      …..

      “Oh Great” Kirk muttered to himself, as the mass of Amazons came rushing towards their immediate location! And that shuttle, the empty shuttle to contact the Federation was out of his reach for now! He could teleport them both to the shuttle? Maybe? If the shuttle works? If?

      His voice and his touch were welcomed and had been missed dearly while she had been captured. So she smiled with his words, as her hazel eyes looked at him. A hand reached to stroke his chin. ”I’ve missed you so much.” It had been… too long, since she last laid eyes upon him. Then she wrapped her arms around him once more, since he did the same. Deep, emotional embrace.

      The approaching Amazons were heard, even by her. Despite the fact her ears most likely contained a lot of water at this point. ”What’s that?” Her eyes were still adjusting to the bright sun that was in the sky, warming each and everyone upon the land. Warm, yet not scorching. Just that right temperature for one to feel able to go and stay outside. Maybe they could avoid detection by laying down by the rock formation? Unlikely but not impossible. A choice had to be made and soon.

      Kirk would be able to teleport to the craft. Perhaps even use it as a hiding spot, if he decided to do that. There was no telling whether or not it would function. Let alone if it was spaceworthy. Parts may or may not have been stripped from it. Or it could simply just be lacking fuel. The choice of landing was perhaps what was the oddest thing out of all. Aside from the scratches in the paint and the mud-stains here and there, it was hard to say if it would work at all. So they had three choices;

      Remain where they were and perhaps dodge notice, by laying low? Literally.

      Teleport to the Federation shuttle in hopes of remaining unnoticed?

      Or manage to get said space shuttle working?

      The Amazons were approaching and Danvers wasn’t exactly in a very fit state.

      How much worse case scenario could this possibly get?

      All the while, holding Danvers Bridal Style within his arms!

      “I’m getting us out of here”, whispering closer to her ear…

      ……

      Meanwhile, after he teleports them both into the ship!

      He’s got to get it running! Which appears to be a no-go.

      Some…important parts are missing!

      Even as he stares towards the screen viewing the approaching Amazons?

      He’s wondering if even this ship can hold up to, their Might? Their Weapons?

      Frantically, he’s hitting communication buttons, in hopes of sending….

      Messages! Signals to Star-fleet, or (neighboring ships?) that he needs assistance!

      NOW!!

      This had most likely beeing planned by The Associate beforehand.

      Who said she would make it easy?

      Such a request had never been uttered.

      But had sure been denied.

      No easy journey for the two.

      Danvers was carried by her Shining Star. Bridal style. Normally, she wasn’t in such a weakened state. But now, it was an emergency. Not that it was at all intended or anything. He was getting them out of here. The whisper was heard and processed. ”Like always.” She whispered in response. His words were enough reassurance to her.

      Now they were inside said ship. Right now she was against a wall, sitting down. Soon she would be able to function better. Hopefully real soon. Kirk was trying to get the ship working, although that seemed to be too much to hope for. The Amazons were approaching, judging by the screen. ”Jim!” She whispered to him. ”Get down!” Maybe they wouldn’t be seen if they just crouched down and used the various shadows within the ship.

      Outside, the Amazons were scattering, with some searching the rock formation. This group was led by Lieutenant Menalippe, one of Diana’s two aunts. ”Find them! I saw them mere moments ago!” She commanded.

      Frantic!

      Kirk bent down to hit the various device pads on the dashboard!

      If only two or three of them get to Star-fleet, they’ll have a chance!!

      However, judging by the Amazons, they haven’t noticed the shuttle yet!

      ….

      But is anything, EVER, easy for…This Pair?

      Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!

      When the little shuttle explodes….

      ….The Pair are sent out of said ship and land…..

      Somewhere………..anywhere………upon the shore-line……

      Seeing him in this pain and discomfort hurt Danvers more than anyone know. Everything Kirk spoke of, was the truth. Even without the Lasso of Truth she would have been able and willing to confirm that he was infact being truthful. She frowned at the sight. ”Please don’t hurt him.” The last thing she wanted to see, while having been free, was this. ”He’s telling the truth. I can vouch for him.” Would her please even be heard?

      The Queen did take note of the please and felt sorry for the woman. Whatever she had been put through. ”Your Associate betrayed you?” She asked calmly, although was surprised to hear a different name. She didn’t expect that. So this wasn’t Steve but someone named James T. Kirk. With that information, she gestured for the LoT to be inactive for now. ”I see.” Still unsure what trickery this was. Magic? Possible. Or perhaps the gods were playing tricks on them? Hard to say.

      ”For what it’s worth, I am sorry to hear of your… struggles.” For lack of a better word. So much was still uncertain, however. ”This woman next to you. Who is she?” Either one was able and allowed to answer that.

      Kirk was thankful for Danvers words….

      Since the heat was temporarily turned off for the LoT!

      “The Associate is a Woman. A being, who I allowed on-board as a security detail for my ship” He says, “…She took on the features of the woman next to me. Dr. Alexandra Danvers” He says, “…The Associate has manipulated my crew who are in danger” Maintaining his eyes on Hipp, “…Much like your warriors” He says, “…And she won’t be content until we’re gone…This is just, just play-time for her. Torture-time….” He says, “….She won’t let us live….She wants to destroy the island and everyone on it” Then he turned to Danvers, “She’s Dr. Alexandra Danvers. Friend. Lover. Corn” Oh noes….

      She was there to help him. In any way possible. So if words were needed to get the point across to the Amazons and their Queen, you bet Danvers would supply just that. All the things he said were true. Even if she hadn’t been there to witness the chaos that had happened during her capture. It had been an ordinary day, really. Just on her way back to Kirk to spend some quality time. Knocked out and captured in an elevator.

      ”She captured me… held me hostage and…” Did terrible things. Her gaze went to Kirk. ”She’s used our crew… him… and possibly my sister, too.” She didn’t dare thing what lies she must have told Kara. ”No one is safe from her sick games.” That was something both she and Kirk were sure of. No way was anyone safe.

      Then Kirk said the sweetest of things. Lover… corn… which made her smile. She had missed that word. He said it just right. Her gaze met his, smile evident. ”Corn. Lovers.” Nodding in agreement. ”Lovers who love corn.”

      By now it was evident that both Alexandra and James had been dealing with a vile being that seemed to only care for chaos and pain. Most troubling. Hippolyta didn’t know these people but they had done well so far and hadn’t caused trouble. Not willingly, atleast. So they were in danger, as well as the Amazons. ”Your warning is both heeded and appreciated.” To both, as the Queen pondered this. ”How is she stopped? This… Associate?”

      Even though the cord wasn’t shining….

      Kirk was looking worse for wear…

      Causing him to lean up against Danvers…

      Even as she told her own horror story…

      “I’ll get her for that” Kirk murmurs,

      “I’m here to help you heal”, sound familiar?

      .

      Apparently confused: Kirk stared back up towards Hipp…

      Then shrugged his shoulders, “..If I knew, she would be gone by now”

      Danvers leant against him too, needing his closeness more than anything in the world. Just him. Close. Something she had missed and needed for so long. The words he uttered were ones she remembered well. Ones she had said to him on more than one occasion. ”And I’m here to help you heal too.” Revenge would be theirs one day. ”We’ll get her for it all.”

      This was troubling indeed. No known way of defeating their enemy. She would have to rally her Amazons and prepare as best she could. ”You two should rest while you can.” The Queen said. ”You will be safe here.” Until the Associate struck. Which could be whenever, really. ”There will be food, drinks and beds.” Nodding in the direction of Menalippe. ”You will escort them and no blaming them for what has happened to us.” Stern voice was stern.

      With a grunt of disapproval, Menalippe removed the LoT and helped Kirk and Danvers onto their feet. ”Your bindings will be removed upon arrival.” She muttered and started to lead them to where they would be resting for the time being.

      Kirk rose to standing, just like Danvers…

      But he tried to stay as close to her as possible…

      “Always” Kirk muttered to The Danvers…

      .

      Even as Exhausted as Kirk was after the Questioning…

      He still found, some strength to reply, “…WE can’t rest. WE need to prepare! We’re being watched!! Even now! Your Island! Your People are not safe here!! None of them are!!”

      Always. Another word that made her smile as she stayed close to him. It was if he was the sole reason she was even able to take these necessary steps. And in a way, he was. To a sanctuary of sorts. Albeit temporary. ”Always.” She repeated as she looked at him. He looked so torn, so tired.

      Menalippe groaned as she used a dagger to undo the bindings. They had been made out of rope. Strong rope, however. ”Yes, we shall flee to the sea and make friends with the fishes.” Menalippe didn’t seem to heed his words very well. ”No means off of the island aside from ships.” Sailbots, to be precise. ”Rest or do not. That is upto you.” Then she was turning to leave the two at their current place to stay.

      Danvers frowned at the mere thought of them not being heard, despite their warnings. Atleast the Queen seemed to have listened and was supposedly gathering some of the Amazons to come up with battle plans. Would it be enough? Would it even help? ”What should we do?” She asked Kirk. Right now she didn’t have any plans, which was unusual. The little house was right infront of them at this point.

      Kirk stared down to his wrists….

      While the necessaries were finally being removed…

      And once he got free movement in his hands….

      The General was starting to leave!

      .

      Kirk also spotted the cottage…

      It would do for now…

      But not while they’re being spot-lighted by The Associate…

      Obviously, they aren’t allowed within the Amazons Confines…

      .

      No getting off of the island…

      No swimming with the fishes…

      Followed by another long stare back to That Cottage…

      If there was one Federation Shuttle-Craft on the Island?

      There could be more, yes? Kirk almost smiled…

      “Where would you hide a shuttle?”

      Yet he was focused upon That Cottage…

      Their Temporary Cottage…

      “They put Steve into a Cave”

      Kirk leans in, “And we get a Cottage?”

      …….

      The bindings being off from the wrists was appreciated. It hadn’t been comfortable at all. So much so she had to run her hands along the wrists. She had probably been bound during her captivity by the Associate.

      The cottage infront of them looked cozy. Honestly all she wanted right now was a soft bed, Jim and maybe some food. But as long as that maniac was roaming freely, no place would be truly safe.

      Her gaze went to Kirk as he almost smiled. Which meant he was onto something. His question was a good one. ”Maybe they think we’re cooler than him?” She smiled. Cottage versus cave. With his question though, she looked around. ”Let’s see…” Shuttles and caves.

      The one they found had been on the shoreline. ”What if there’s a really big cave? One able to fit a shuttle.” It wasn’t entirely impossible. ”That’s where I would hide one.” Unless there were ones in the woods, too.

      In the melee of arriving onto the island…

      Treatment for her wrists was the last item on the agenda….

      But now that they had a Cottage?

      A Cottage? Maybe not?

      .

      They can’t leave the Island…

      Due to The Amazons…

      They can’t stay on the Island…

      Due to The Associate…

      .

      And: Going into That Cottage?

      Could mean another Death Trap?

      “I’m not sticking around here, are you?”

      He’s going back to The Amazons…

      Already footing it back there…

      To follow That General….

      She would survive. Whatever scars, physical or mental, would heal over time. Her limbs were functioning, even if she felt stiff at times. That was’t going to slow her down. She wouldn’t let it. They were caught between a rock and a hard place. How would they even get off this island? Aside from using sailboats. So with his question, she shook her head. ”No way.” She wasn’t going to remain here.

      And so Danvers followed him, in hopes of catching Lieutenant Menalippe before it was too late. And maybe trying to get their voices heard. Again.

      Somewhere along that walk…

      Kirk stopped….Wait?

      If The Associate provided The Amazons a Cottage?

      Wait?

      .

      The Associate wants them Here: for a reason…

      Causing Kirk to back up even more so….

      “We’re not on Thee Paradise Island”

      Kirk reminds Danvers…

      “This is fake. It’s an illusion.”

      He hopes to Hell that he’s wrong!

      As he stopped, Danvers gave him a ‘What’s wrong?’ type of look as she stopped as well. This meant he was thinking. Something was on his mind. Possibly for them both. A lot had happened in a very short period of time. Even before then. They had been through a lot as of late. ”Not THE Paradise Island?” Could have fooled her, honestly. Aside from the cottage. And the shuttle.

      An illusion. Fake. Just like their Bestest Friend. ”How do you know?” She wasn’t doubting him or his words. She was just curious how he knew. ”I have a feeling you’re right.” That was the proof he would need that she didn’t doubt him.

      “While I was on-board”

      Kirk is continuing to walk…

      To scope out the forbidden area….

      That they’ve been dropped into…

      “I noticed certain crew members”

      He says….

      “Some of them, were adamant about her arrival?”

      Scotty was one of them….

      “Others, couldn’t wait to see what she could do?”

      Khan was one of them…

      Kirk freed Khan from Admiral Marcus, a long ways back…

      Back on some Section 31 Remote Space Outpost…

      Along with His Seventy-Two crewmen….

      “You remember that room?”

      Danvers probably wants to forget…

      “This? I got an idea? That it’s another version of it”…

      Let Kirk Be Wrong!

      Danvers listened to him speak, sharing his thoughts. All while keeping close to him. Being separated was something she would allow happening again. Not if she could help it. Some crew members had been against the arrival, some had been interested in it. The Associate had come in and she had done so hard and swiftly. Those who opposed her? Well… they were often silenced. In one way or another.

      The room was one she wanted to forget but she remembered it. Probably always would. ”Yeah, I remember.” She had been kidnapped and taken there. ”It all happened on the ship. I went into the elevator and then…” She was captured. They had both been through so much. So much pain. He hadn’t had it any easier than she had. ”I’m sorry. For everything that’s happened.” Even if it was her fault, she still felt geniunely sorry for it all.

      ”Knowing what kind of psycho she is, this might just be another room.” But who knew – anything could happen. At any given time. It wasn’t as if they weren’t monitored. Something they were most likely unaware of.

      Kirk kept close to Danvers…

      While she explained some of her story…

      Then he just as gently took her hand into his own…

      As A Show Of Unity….

      “Don’t be sorry”

      Kirk reminds her…

      “Just Remember that you’ve survived”

      .

      And judging by where they’ve truly landed…

      Their true destination…

      Kirk is eyeing that land….

      Because he’s been here before…

      “Planet: Altamid”

      Another pause….

      “Krall”

      He says….

      “The Crew is Here! Krall destroyed My Ship!!!”

      But there were artifacts to be found…

      And His Broken Ship, among The Enemy…

      Along With The USS-Franklin…

      Something as simple as taking a hold of her hand.

      Brought warmth to her.

      Both her heart.

      And her body.

      Her hold on his hand tightened.

      ”And I’m glad I did.” Survived, that was. It wasn’t as if she was going down like that. It wasn’t her way. So she pushed through as best she could. Much like he had.

      By now it seemed Kirk knew where they had landed. Not Paradise Island – but Altamid. A place he had seen before, judging by his words. Not a pleasant memory. ”You’ve been here before.” She stated, trusting him to know he was speaking the truth. ”Maybe she’s making you re-live it again.”

      The Future IS Altamid….

      Behind Them IS The Amazons…

      .

      Nodding to Danvers…

      “She separated you from me, to gain compliance”

      He says.

      “But she didn’t always get it”

      Staring off over his shoulder, the way to the Amazons….

      Or the way of the future? Which one was correct?

      If they got back to the Amazons?

      They’ll get questioned again…

      Which meant more information for The Associate…

      Then Kirk focused back onto Altamid…

      “This is The Right Way”

      Her hazel eyes focused on him as he spoke, his words. ”They can never win with us.” There had been moments in the past where this had been proven. ”Not with us.” No matter how hard they tried, they never seemed to be able to fully conquer these two individuals. The Corn Pair.

      ”I knew you’d pull through. Somehow.” He always did. As did she. No matter the situation. Even if it had been extremely difficult this time around. Due to hope dwindling and little to no information given from the Associate. Mindgames.

      When he said it was the right way, she nodded. ”I trust you. And I’ll follow you no matter where it leads us.” There was determination in her voice. This could be another trap. But so could the Amazons. They didn’t have many options to choose from.

      “Same”

      Kirk replies.

      But he was wondering…

      If it was a visual switch going on as well?

      Meaning: Walking right into the Amazons…

      Or even worse? The Klingons? The Romulans?

      .

      And if those Federation Shuttle Craft signals got through?

      It would mean that Krall/Crew: already know of their imminent arrival.

      A Trap, within a Trap, within a Trap…

      Amazons coming for them on one side…

      Kralls Team on the other…Trapped….

      It was safe to assume just about anything at this point would and could be a trap. So they had to be cautious. All they had was their wits. No real weapons (unless Kirk had some on him). Danvers only had the clothes she wore when she was kidnapped. Although the strongest weapon was definitely present – eachother. Wits and eachother. Whatever might await them, would soon be revealed. Since threats seldom remained hidden for too long. Especially for two people – stranded in a place in the middle of nowhere.

      She had a bad feeling about this. Something she was sure applied to Kirk as well. The Associate was more than likely involved in this. In one way or another. Should the Associate remain undealt with, she might end up reign supreme. They couldn’t allow that to happen.

      It would be safe to assume…

      That The Associate knows about, His Other Weapons…

      And confiscated them as well…

      Phasers, for sure.

      Not Discord.

      Not His Light-Sabers.

      Some weapons, are inaccessible…

      Even For, The Associate…

      .

      Telepathy might work here?

      But then The Associate over-heard him before…

      Not Pleasant. It was a very bad, horrible day…

      .

      However, they were walking near a clearing…

      That had a ditch of sorts!

      That was true. Strife & Discord were both unable to be used or even held by anyone but the one they were meant for. Which was Danvers. However – one could borrow them, with the allowance from Danvers herself. Which had been given to Kirk. In this case it would mean they were both with Kirk. Her lightsaber was most likely carried by the Associate.

      Then, near that ditch, in that clearing…

      Held up in the air by… graviton things? Something like that. Right now she didn’t know what it was. But they had walked into a trap. However, they were let down. Thankfull. Even if the landing could have been better in terms of her.

      Landed on her back. As she looked up, she heard Kirk speak to the woman. One that wasn’t a human. There were quite a few aliens in National City, so she knew an alien when she saw one. Was she an ally?

      “Jaylah…Long time no see” Kirk replies…

      Kirk spoke to the alien, who was in fact their friend.

      He even helped Danvers up to her feet!

      “We’re uh…This is all a repeat” To Scotty and Jaylah.

      Scotty replies, “…Kirk. The Crew is all dead. It’s not a Prison Planet”

      “DEAD!! She killed everyone!! But what about the ship?” Kirk asks…

      Since they were just outside of the USS-Franklin, there was still Hope.

      “It’s just me, Khan, Bones, Spock, Uhura and Chekov…The REST are dead” Scotty says

      The alien was named Jaylah, from what she heard. And the tone suggested that she was a friend/ally. Either was a welcome sight in these troubling and outright confusing times. The line between reality and non-reality was starting to get blurry. Danvers accepted the help from Kirk of course and was now stood on her feet again. ”Thank you.” A brief, albeit genuine smile was given to her Captain. Scotty she knew, of course.

      Kirk was certain it was a repeat. A past event that had taken place. A prison planet. Yet Scotty claimed that it wasn’t one. Which was confusing. He said the crew was… dead? All of them? Aside from a select few. Which meant a lot of lives had been lost. And for what? Some sick game? A quest for power?

      Her eyes went to Kirk, a frown visible. They had lost so many good and loyal people to this madness. How many more would be lost before this was all said and done? A thought she didn’t dare hold for much longer. ”For what it’s worth, I’m glad you two are still alive.” To Scotty and Jaylah, even if she didn’t know the alien female. ”She’ll pay for this. We promise.”

      Kirk was beside himself in pain…

      The Minute that he left that ship…

      Everyone was killed. Everyone….

      “If she got to The Crew. Then she’s gotten to Kralls Men”

      Kirk is visibly numb, “…And the Amazons are probably next”

      The pain was evident. And also felt by her. So many people dead. Just like that. The moment Kirk left the ship. Trust the Associate to not make it easy or even play fair. Always an angle. Ever since her arrival things like that had started. ”And who knows who else she’s gotten…” She frowned at that. Right now she was unopposed. They didn’t have anything against the Associate at this point. ”We have to warn the Amazons somehow.” It was the only way. But would they even listen?

      She could be anywhere, that’s the problem

      However…

      Khan chimed in and said, “It gets worse”

      While Good Ole Kirk asks, “She interrupted your sleep?”

      Khan shakes his head, No, “…She injected those she deemed valuable with my blood” Khans Super-Blood.

      Kirk, “You’ve got to be kidding me?”

      ….

      “It appears that we are surrounded, with no means of an escape Captain. However, Jaylah here could help us make this ship fully operational. And Scotty has already proven useful by making the ancient transporters work within a 72% ratio”

      …………..

      “And they didn’t avvv swarm ships Sir” Scotty replies, “Thay Git a Star Distroyur up there”

      ‘It gets worse’. Of course it did. As if things weren’t bad enough as it was. Experiments were conducted. With Khan’s blood. Which reminded her of what the Associate had told her. About Kara. Things started to make more sense now, the more she heard. ”Seems she took on more than just my looks.” Quite possible her medical expertise as well. Hell… maybe she was even better than Danvers in this regard. Hard to say. Kirk’s comment about no sleep to Khan almost made her laugh. But laughing in this situation would have been a bad move.

      Star Destroyer, yet they had a ship that could function once more. With some tinkering. That was something. ”I’ll help in any way I can in getting the ship operational. Or getting in contact with someone to help.”

      ”So now we’re dealing with a Star Destroyer as well.” She sighed. Great. Whatever else did this Associate have in store for them all?

      Kirk got another idea, “Then if you can’t get me aboard a swarm ship? Get me aboard the Star Destroyer” Hmm? But then he had some second thoughts, “….What if the Star Destroyer, is really the Enterprise?” Or was Kirk getting even more ideas?

      .

      Khan details, “Then those aboard what-ever ship maybe in the sky? Will—-”

      .

      Spock cuts him off, “—There will be a 99.9% ratio that those on-board will have been injected with The Super-Blood. So if anyone is beamed aboard—-”

      .

      Kirk cut Spock off, “—Aboard. Spock. We need IN that ship. Scotty, can you transport some Amazons into this rust-bucket?”

      .

      Scotty, “Yes!”

      .

      Kirk, “Get on it. We’ve got a Star Destroyer to investigate”

      Amazons were formidable fighters by nature. If any force could stand against Super-Powered individuals, it would be them. The Queen had said she would speak to her fellow Amazons about the incoming threat. So there was atleast some willingness to help out. Here was hoping they would still want to do just that. ”Let’s hope they’ll be able to shed some light on this.” She truly hoped so.

      Khan asks, “Or? The Destroyer could be the illusion?”

      .

      Kirk hadn’t thought of that, “Good point”, even while he’s pacing, thinking, “…But we also need that Fibonan ancient weapon—”

      The Destroyer could be the illusion. Just about anything could be. Any of the survivors could be. Gosh, she was getting paranoid. So she took a deep breath to try and soothe her nervous nerves. Calm, Danvers. Calm. Right. That was better. Her gaze went to Kirk as he managed to get a communications dashboard working. A video popped up on the screen. But it wasn’t a pleasant video…

      ”We recieved your distress signal the first time.” A familar voice said. Yep – The Associate. ”Are you all ready to be beamed up? That can be arranged.” No, it was not the ordinary kind of beaming. It would be like being beamed into a hornets nest. Or worse – the playground of a maniac.

      Danvers could feel her skin crawl. It was like hearing her own voice. And she hated it!

      Where was that ship located? He was going to get the upper hand here!!

      ”Hiding? Sure, we can call it that.” The Associate responded with a rather indifferent look upon her face. ”You’re the one that ran away with your tail between your legs.” If one could even consider that a valid point. He had been left with no real choice in the matter. ”Tell me; do the dead really speak? There should be plenty of dead around you.”

      Kirk was indeed clever and would get a lock onto that signal. It would appear that the Star Destroyer she was on, was in orbit just above this version of Earth. Which would mean she had probably witnessed everything down here. Not a good sign.

      ”I have some fun plans in store. Say… what weapons do we have onboard?” Then one of the current employees of hers mentioned a few of them. ”Proton torpedoes sounds fun. Give the Amazons a bit of a scare.” Oh noes. ”Lock onto that big tower of theirs.”

      ”Oh? You think I would kill them?” The Associate even laughed to herself. ”It wouldn’t kill all of them. Just a few. I have… other things in mind for these Amazons.” Terrible and twisted ones at that. ”Is it? I’m not so sure…” Who knew who it was between. She was just crazy.

      ”The Amazons are innocent. They’ve got nothing to do with whatever your motive is.” Danvers said to the enemy of theirs. Would she even listen?

      Then he gestured over to Danvers, ‘Send her to where Steve and Diana got transported’

      Kirk is making plans, “I want this ship and running? If that’s possible?”

      Why the Associate was smirking, was anyones guess. Maybe she had predicted this? Or maybe she had some other cruel, twisted plans in mind. There was no objection whatsoever. ”And here I thought you would be stranded for a long time to come. Almost had me scared.” Almost.

      As for Danvers she saw the mouthing and wasn’t sure this was a good idea. Separated was not a good idea. Then again going in together wasn’t either. She was terrified the Associate would find her again and it was all over her face. The fear.

      Kirk, “Oh? I thought that you were missing me? Speaking about killing all of those Amazons, and trying to impress me? You liked to do that when I was on-board” He states….

      ”We both know who you missed all while I was here. One that was given back to you.” The Associate said. ”You can’t have both, Kirk. That was not what we discussed.” Whatever that meant. ”Only a few of them would be killed. They still can be.” It wasn’t as if the thought hadn’t crossed her mind.

      Danvers had a bad feeling about this. Big time. But what could she say or do? Kirk had a plan. It would work. It had to work.

      Kirk was evidently stalling, while Scotty/Crew, were waiting for the Warp Cores to fully charge. It was an agonizing process, due to just as obvious reasons.

      Tha Associate had indeed been interested in that. Seeing if he was a match. Although injecting people with the Super Blood wasn’t the only thing she got up to. There were other things, too. ”Would you be willing to risk that? It could be very, very lethal.” There was that risk. Atleast to her knowledge.

      Kirk sat back into the Captain’s Chair of the Franklin after The Associates direct threat to Danvers. He was beginning to realize that The Associate might be directly linked to his brain.

      So he requested a meeting. In person. She could do that. Of course it was safe to assume that the Associate wasn’t going to play overly nice. Since when did she ever? ”That could be arranged.” The female stated simply. ”Is that how we’re going to play it?” The ball was in their yard now.

      Danvers was somewhat relieved now. Maybe if they met on neutral ground, she and the others would be safe. Ish. Safer atleast. The urge to make the Associate pay for her crimes was strong, however. Very strong.

      Never fair. Never alone. It meant going back into the fray again.

      Kirk mouthed to Scotty, ‘Beam the important Amazons on-board. Get this ship off of the island and back to Earth’ Kirk is still conniving, which means it’s back to square one again, ‘…Don’t let her out of your sight’ Meaning Danvers….

      .

      Kirk finally responded to The Associate, “…Where did you have in mind to meet?”

      Danvers really didn’t want to do this, although she knew there was probably little to no choice in the matter. But to leave him alone, in the grasp of that… thing? It upset and angered her. Who knew what tricks she had up her sleeve.

      ”That Throne Room looks rather cool. That’s where we’ll meet.” The Associate said. A place had been set. And a possible trap as well.

      Whatever may happen?

      Kirk got out of the chair…

      And held Danvers close to him…

      With Nothing To Spare…

      Nothing…

      Curiously, he mouthed near Danvers face,

      ‘Me. For. You. The One That I Love, Can’t Have You: Anymore’….

      Because that’s what this all meant, right?

      Since plans were set for the USS-Franklin, and even with those Amazons?

      The Associate was going to have some surprises of her own…

      Danvers held him close as she was embrace. The mouthing of words was noticed. ‘You’ll always have me. We’ll make the bitch pay.’ She mouthed and then kissed him. ‘I’ll be back.’ It was a promise. She would help him. ‘I love you.’ She mouthed before Kirk was gone.

      The ship now warped to Earth. In hopes of finding Diana and Steve, who would hopefully be able to help in this struggle. Danvers didn’t like this one bit. The Associate wouldn’t play nice at all. She never had, never would. Here was hoping Diana and Steve would even agree to this.

      The Associate was occupying the throne, no less. One leg crossed over the other. Once Kirk arrived, her attention went to him. ”I was hoping you would bring your loved one. That would have been fun. But oh well!” She said, indifferent. ”You also took all the important Amazons from me. Tsk, tsk!” Then she stood up.

      ”This won’t do. At all. But… thankfully, you didn’t bring them all.” Oh noes. ”Those who remain, will suffer the consequences of your actions. How? When? Whenever I decide to. Now then – shall we go back to the ship?” Which would not be a pleasant trip.

      Kirk waited for the Evil Being to Arrive….

      And When she did…

      The Associate….

      HAD Dared to take the actual Throne to sit upon…

      .

      Of course, there was always going to be consequences for both…

      Saving the Important Amazons, to their Artifacts, and His Crew….And DANVERS…

      .

      So? Kirk stood within the Throne Room, observing The Associate once more…

      Now, without The Item within her Reach…It was a War that he’s finally won….

      .

      Kirk stared back to the empty hallway that led to this Infamous Room….

      Then over to the Rocks, and he agreed with a nod, “…Whenever you’re ready?”

      Not Pleasant. AT. ALL. That got twisted into….This….

      Dared she had. This being seemed to have no real care for what she had just done. When he practically said he was ready, she smiled. But not one of those nice smiles. Just… weird, really. ”It’s been boring without people to kill…” Pondering, pondering. ”For your heroism, I’ll put on a show.” And not a good movie or anything like that. ”Beam up the remaining Amazons.” They would more than likely not meet a pleasant fate.

      ”I suspect your beloved will return. Infact – I expect her to. But I’ll be ready for it.” And since both she and him were ready, they would soon be beamed up to the Star Destroyer above. As for what kind of ordeals he would be put through? Well, none of them would be nice. That was for sure.

      The Associate….

      Unfortunately….

      Is Known to Kirk….

      So he knew what to expect as well…

      The Amazons….taken….

      Kirk Nods, “I broke it off with her”, meaning Danvers….

      “So you’ve got me all to yourself”, such a grin…

      No. Not Pleasant AT ALL…

      “Congratulations Associate”

      Oh. So. Mocking….

      The Amazons, those that remained,

      Were taken onboard.

      The Star Destroyer.

      In orbit.

      But for how long?

      Broke it off? There was no real expression on the face of the Associate. ”Then killing her will be so much easier.” She didn’t seem to overly care much about it. ”You, you will be the last.” Only then was she smirking. ”Spock… Scotty… Danvers… all will die before you. Unless… someone else kills them before then?” Never knew what manner of people were out there.

      ”Maybe I should clone you. A more… evil you.” Tapping her lips as she watched him. ”Take him to the cell.” The some Red Shirts came in and would escort him to said cell. Of course Kirk and crew had already been informed of the Super-Blood, so Kirk might have gotten the inkling even these people had been amped up.

      Strange…

      The Star Destroyer has….

      Federation Officers On-board?

      “I’d rather kill her myself”

      Kirk reminds The Associate…

      “Everyone always says that”

      In reference to Killing Him…

      “You’re just another one in a Long Line of hopefuls”

      Kirk STOP!

      “It doesn’t get more evil than this”

      Kirk walked with the Red Shirts towards the awaiting cell…

      The last time this happened? The Associate had trouble….

      It would only be a matter of time….

      That she’ll have him out of this cell….

      Of course, the last ship was the Enterprise….

      She’s making her first big mistake….

      So let her keep on making it, yes?

      “…Good Luck with the controls”…

      Kirk adds.

      “Don’t trip on them this time”

      The ship would have more than just Red Shirts.

      It was as if she was collecting,

      Species and people,

      From various places.

      Turning them into one force.

      ”You wouldn’t have the guts to.” Then a blank stare to him. ”Literally.”

      She listened to him ramble, though didn’t answer it all. Kirk liked the sound of his own voice, according to the Associate. She let the red Shirts put him in his cell while smiling at him. ”I’m in control. As I’ve always been.” She said before she left the room.

      Steve and Diana are currently enjoying a long-awaited-vacation…

      Especially after the turbulence of what happened on Paradise Island a few days ago…

      If being on a vacation, constitutes speaking with those of:

      The Justice League and The Avengers and The X-Men….

      Steve was already mentioning to Diana, “…How did we end up here?”

      Inside Tony Stark’s New Malibu Home?

      When did they have a vacation the last time?

      The answer would probably be;

      Never.

      So this was a first.

      A vacation that involved;

      The Justice League,

      The Avengers,

      And the X-Men.

      Vacation.

      Totally.

      Diana was dressed for the occasion, however. Much like Steve was. Inside the new Malibu Home of none other than Tony Stark. ”Should I really tell you?” Her tone somewhat low as she approached her Captain. ”It’s quite the tale.”

      “Indeed. You should”

      Steve replied, though as he looked towards the giant window….

      A Giant Ship was flying towards the Malibu Home…

      Steve raised his brows, and mentioned, “…We might have company”

      Diana could and would explain it, since he seemed interested in hearing the tale. ”Well, it’s a rather long story…” But she wouldn’t have time to continue as Steve interrupted her. A spaceship was closing in on the Malibu Home.

      ”I suspect the worst.” Diana muttered.

      True to form…

      The Franklin was going to crash the party!

      Their Party!

      Steve gets a hold of Diana!

      And brings her to something soft, when the ship crashes to the shore!

      The Shore-line….

      And Steve was held close to her, to brace him for the shockwaves and quake after the impact! They landed softly, thankfully. Not that Diana was made out of porcelain but still… a soft landing, even so. Something to be grateful for.

      The party had been crashed. But so had the spaceship that just crashed. On the shoreline. ”We should investigate.” Diana stated. Yep. No time to sit down for the pretty princess. ”Steve, let’s go.” Poor Steve, having to deal with an impulsive Diana.

      But someone had to. It was down to Tony Stark to try and soothe the worried guests. being a good host and all of that.

      Space Craft!

      Space Craft Steve’s ASS!

      He pulled Diana aside and said, “…It’s those Federation Shits”

      One after another, they stepped out.

      The Crew.

      What remained of it.

      A shadow of its former self.

      Yet holding on.

      To hope.

      To Jim Kirk.

      Their Captain.

      Her beloved.

      Hope.

      Hoping to see him.

      One day. Again.

      Danvers groaned in pain as she came to. She had hit her head and her entire body felt numb. Right now she had no idea if anyone had died in the crash, although judging by the ships current state, she found it unlikely that anyone had passed in the crash. Injuries was another thing, however. They had to be tended to.

      She was on the floor for a few minutes, before she stumbled onto her feet. Everyone else was moving out of the ship, while Danvers was going through every nook and cranny to see if anyone was stuck or in need of help getting out. She wouldn’t leave anyone behind. No one. Ever.

      Danvers would be the last one to leave the now crashed ship on the shoreline.

      Diana was stopped when Steve pulled her aside. The uniforms had been noted, even by her but the way he spoke was… no, it wasn’t something she could agree with. ”They are in need of aid. We cannot just leave them.” She stated and she didn’t seem willing to budge. ”Federation or not.” Of course she hadn’t seen Danvers yet…

      Steve Rogers was the first to make it out of the party to check on the Crew. This was all new to the Captain, since their uniforms were different. He even informed Tony to check the ship out via Jarvis, which was done almost immediately. Steve patted Trevors shoulder and told them that they are all survivors, and that we’ll figure out what’s happened here.

      From there, Steve Rogers met up with Danvers, and said, “What happened here?” Besides the ship falling apart on impact, and besides Rogers already going into the ship to investigate. One can presume that Tony/Jarvis was inspecting every inch of that ship….

      Tony Stark and Jarvis would indeed inspect the ship. It wasn’t everyday one got to investigate a spaceship, after all. Not even a common sight for the Avengers. Trust the one with mechanical know-how to just walk in there as if he owned the place. Then again he wasn’t met with much resistance. Not much to see, not much to hide in there. Danvers just blinked. The lives were more important.

      Ones that were now in the hands of her. And her own life was in the hands of Captain Steve Rogers, Diana Prince and Captain Steve Trevor.

      ”Something malfunctioned and we resorted to a crash landing.” What happened was unknown. But everyone seemed to be safe. For now. ”Everyone is alive, though. Thankfully.”

      Ironically, Khan was the first one to speak up, “…The Associate has our Captain”

      He asks, “Have you heard of that individual?”

      .

      Meanwhile, Scotty says, “…He sacrificed himself to Save The Amazons. The Queen. The Crew. Their Artifacts. And he directed us here. Which we are here. Now” Even Scotty appeared rather torn up.

      .

      Tony is unaware of whom this Captain is, “Who is this mysterious Captain?”

      .

      Trevor cuts in, “Captain Kirk. He captured both me and Diana, then Crushed our insides until he got Diana alone to speak with her in her cell. Something that I will never forget….The Man is A Criminal. He’s joined up with that Associate. He’s not to be trusted”

      .

      Tony heard all of that but kept on working with Khan, “…Can anyone else explain to me what happened?” However, Tony did find a locked video of The Associate speaking to The Crew within the electronic data storage area. “Jarvis. Isolate Female Voice. Signature Female Voice” Then Tony smiled, “..WE might need to get some Asgard Kicking Involved”

      .

      There were some groans from the other Avengers…

      She frowned when she heard that. Again.

      The Associate has their Captain.

      Captured…

      Alone…

      Separated…

      From those he cares about.

      ”He gave himself to the Associate in order to make sure we got to safety.” Scotty was right. As for Steve, she kind of expected that response. ”He was forced to do things he took no joy in doing. Whatever happened to you and Diana wasn’t really his doing.” She tried to get that point across to him.

      The voice and the appearance of Danvers didn’t go unnoticed by Diana. No, she knew who this woman was. Evident by the glare. Or rather – she thought she knew who it was. ”That is her. She is the Associate.” Diana pointed at Danvers. ”Kirk warned us about her. Her evil ways.”

      Tony was of course, listening.

      .

      Jarvis was categorizing the contained voice from the video lock. From there, Jarvis commented, “…The voice within this video, has irregularities, compared to this woman. Diana” Meaning Danvers.

      .

      Tony heard everything thus far, “…Just tell me everything from the beginning” Then glared to Trevor, “I heard your bit and it was unfortunate. We’ll take his actions into account once found. But we have to find Him and This Associate” Tony got on the horn to Starlord, “Yo. Did you guys notice any disruption near Altamid?” Tony got that information via the coordinates found in the dashboard, “Good. You did? A big ship, huh? This ship got fired upon? You saw it?” Tony’s still listening, “Send that information to me on a closed channel”

      .

      …………………………

      Meanwhile, Kirk heard some activity going outside of his cell, which was more towards the hallway corridors. This, caused him to look up within that direction. Something was going on……Why? They didn’t seem happy. Secondly: he’s got this Cell All to Himself. Even the other Cells have been cleared out, since he’s arrived here. Taunts. More Mind-Games…

      Diana wasn’t sure what to make of the situation. The woman looked and sounded just like the Associate. The only difference was the clothing. Danvers wore casual clothes, whereas The Associate wore that DEO tactical suit. Probably stolen from the poor Doctor. ”I would not rely so blindly on that technology.” Diana almost muttered. ”She is a cunning and evil woman.”

      Danvers could understand the predicament. Who knew how many people she had fooled and manipulated while wearing this face. ”My name is Dr. Alexandra Danvers. I was kidnapped… I don’t know how long ago it was.” That wasn’t truly the point. ”She took on my appearance and manipulated people while I was captured, held hostage.” The mere thought made her frown. ”Now she has Kirk. My lover and Captain.”

      ”If you don’t trust me, I know someone who can prove it.” She looked at everyone present. ”My sister. She respects you a great deal, Diana. If she saw you with us, she would probably see through the lies that… that the bitch has spread.”

      ————————————————————————————————————-

      On the ship, there would be sounds. At first it would be screams. Agony… pain… desperation. And then… nothing. Presumable from the Medical Bay. Some of the men under her command were most likely muttering. Either in fear or in awe. The Associate stormed out from the Medical Bay, obviously furious. Bloodied blue gloves were on her hands. ”I need better candidates! These are weak!” Then she pointed at one of them. ”Get the bodies out of here. NOW.” Then to someone else. ”And you clean the Medical Bay.”

      Aside from her voice echoing throughout the somewhat dark and quiet hallways, the ship was quiet in general. Deathly so. There were troops, people… yet no one seemed to dare speak. As if that alone could kill them. With someone as the Associate running the show, it wasn’t unlikely.

      It wasn’t until Magneto got onto the scene that he really started to grin about Kirk’s predicament. Though he’s largely keeping silent, while information is being traded back and forth…

      .

      Tony frowned at that news, “What clues can you remember? What could she do? What were her highlighted powers? We’ll need to know when we get that Captain out”

      .

      Rogers stalked in as well, “…What happened on Altamid?” He looked to the Star Destroyer, but it didn’t ring any bells for him….

      .

      Racoon Rocket, however, appeared to be growling at the screen. “I know that bitch! She stole my gun! She stole my gun!”

      ……………………………………………………..

      .

      Meanwhile, Kirk heard the ominous words outside of his cell. Now, coming here wasn’t meant to be a long-standing-idea. He needs to get out and soon! Yet this cell is monitored from every single direction. Pacing. Kirk started to pace in his cell to remain active.

      However, he was beginning to wonder if his team were having trouble with where he’d directed them to proceed? And if they were having trouble? He’s a Dead Man….

      So many new faces and even more questions. It wasn’t that long ago, when she was locked in and kept from the outside world. Danvers had been thrown right into it without no real chance to recover. Once the Associate was dealt with, she would be able. She and Kirk. It would happen. They could do this. All of them.

      ”Gee, I don’t know.” The Asscociate had never really shown any signs of power. Not as in powers one used for good or evil. Just the charismatic power. And the fact she was in control. ”She’s got a craving for control. As for powers I… I think she’s able to take on whatever form she chooses.” Those were troubling news. But they were also just theories on her part. ”She chose my appearance and it seems she inherited my skills as well. Atleast the medical ones.”

      ”On Altamid, we were captured and questioned by the Amazons.” Which was just after she had been rescued. ”At first we thought they were with the Associate. But we were wrong.” So very wrong. ”We met up with the crew… or what remained of it, rather. Kirk was forced to remain while we were sent away. To find help. He’s… with her now.” Alive or dead, they didn’t know.

      ————————————-

      Soon enough, the Associate entered the room where Kirk was at. Alone. In a cell. ”You must be bored.” The tone was rather flat. No real hint of emotion. ”I could offer you some entertainment.” Not that kind though. No, it would be something else. ”I would almost… insist upon it.” It seemed she had already made her mind up.

      ”Incase you’re worried, no, I haven’t found your crew. Yet.” But she was searching. Yep. She was.

      Rocket Raccoon had appeared and no one had noticed him! Which further infuriated the Raccoon! “Damn it! I know that woman!” He pointed to the screen, and leveled some barbaric weapon to not only the crew, but the Avengers and that of the Justice League! Raccoon needed to be heard! “….She stole my gun! Her actual name is: Tempest Flare” He says, “…She’s got a problem with identities! She tried to take mine!—”

      .

      Tony cuts off Rocket, “— Hold it. Wait? When did this happen? And when were you going to tell us?”

      .

      Rocket sighs, “I just got here! And half of this team ignored me! All of you did!”

      .

      Groot muttered, “I am Groot” I want a cheeseburger.

      .

      Rocket growled, “You already had five of them!”

      .

      Groot muttered again, “I am Groot” I want a cheeseburger.

      .

      Jarvis, however, was the one to answers Danvers, “Based upon my findings within the Federation Star-fleet Database. It appears if this Kirk tends to avail himself to his enemies at very inopportune times. Such as the term of being, unpredictable?” Jarvis replies, “…Based upon the studies for this ship that he was last taken to? There seems to have been some anomalies regarding said ships structure. Which means that it may no longer be active within space” Jarvis says, “….Despite Rocket’s Revelations. I am still running an analysis for Tempest Flare. That ship is no longer within that sector and has disappeared”

      .

      Tony is listening to the news, and it appears to be very grim for The Captain….

      .

      Rocket says, “We got to leave this place. She tried to take my gun. She’ll be coming here. And your Captain will be dead, if we don’t find her first”

      .

      ……………………………….

      Kirk was still standing within that cell, though his features were almost filled with surprise. He dared not speak to her. Yet he kept his features rather stoic, while he nodded his head….

      Danvers had only noticed Rocket now, to which she felt bad. She really wasn’t at her best. Not yet. But she would be. Had to keep it together. From what she had gathered, The Associate was one that tried to assume the role of others. Which was a scary thought. What if this wasn’t her first heist? No one would truly know it was her. Imagine the damage she could do to an individual by slandering their name, their reputation. And that wasn’t even the physical damage…

      ”Just how powerful is this Tempest Flare? What can it do?” That worried her. The fewer weapons the Assoicate had, the better. As for what Groot was saying, she honestly couldn’t tell. Not entirely.

      Jarvis’ statement wasn’t false. ”He tends to that. It’s true. Which is when he’s got a plan.” It actually resulted in a smile of hers. Faint, yet genuine. ”We try to be as unpredictable as we can be.” Which would probably be what helped them this time around as well. Hopefully. ”If we can find the ship, we know where to go.” They had a lot of people here.

      ————-

      ”Excellent! I had this one idea but now I got another.” That was the scary thing. As if she got… impulses from somewhere. One moment it was this, another moment it was something else. ”Similar to the original but something… different, still. Bring her in!” She called out.

      Soon enough, two Stormtroopers brought in an Amazon. Still wearing armor and a tiara of her own. Most of them did, in various designs. Some of them had been taken onboard. ”Kirk, meet… oh who cares what your name is.” She shrugged as the Amazon was let down on her knees. ”I do like the tiara, though. Do you mind…?” As if the Associate would ask permission. She gently took a hold of the tiara and placed it upon her own head. ”Fabulous! Now…”

      Pacing around the Amazon that was at the mercy of this maniac. ”We’re going to have an interrogation. However…” A brief pause. ”Any lies or unsatisfying answer will result in pain… for this Amazon here.” Those were the rules. She wasted no time, either. ”Where did you send Diana and Steve to?” She started off with the easier question. ”Our… guest here is dying to know.”

      Rocket had some ideas, “….She takes things! She’s a thief! She almost got one of the Infinity Stones but lunkhead, Peter! Almost gave it to her at a bar! A Freaking Bar!” Doesn’t say that Peter is Dense, “….Luckily. We got it back. But she twists the minds of those that intrigue her”

      .

      Jarvis cut in, “…Tempest Flare is a Prodigy. A torturer. She’s worked for The Empire. As well as The Federation” Interesting. “…From my findings. It appears as if she already knows this Captain Kirk from The Academy” Still reviewing the computer findings, “…They handled a Project Together regarding: Telekinetic Theories and The Galactic Spectrum” The computer reports, “…If this is true? Then she may keep him alive for some time” But is that the type of living that Kirk would want?

      .

      Rocket cut in, “….Highly Intelligent Brainiac. Control Freak. Where do we usually find them?”.

      .

      Tony responded, “…Penthouse Suites”

      .

      Rocket glares, “…I’m talking Space Docks! There’s only one off of Sector 17 in the Gamma Quadrant that could tolerate her attitude. ‘Whistle Bay’…”

      This is exactly what he was experiencing…

      Back on The Enterprise with The Associate…

      She’s got storm-troopers now? Death-Troopers?

      Even as he observed that Amazon remain firm and strong, despite her circumstances…

      Of course, his heart went out to the Amazon: how could it not?

      “………………..” Kirk refused to answer…..

      That sounded like Peter Quill, alright. He would probably be the one to fool the easiest. Didn’t require much in order to do so. Again, not calling him dense but… something. The Associate didn’t only take things but people as well, their lives. Either by killing or assuming their role. The only one that she hadn’t been able to either kill or control, was Kara. She had tried. Very much so. But she had failed in those attempts.

      ”Twists the minds until she gets what she wants.” Which was a question for another time – what she truly wanted. And if The Associate didn’t want anything, that made her even more dangerous. Danvers listened to Jarvis’ words. ”She knows how to get around.” To put it mildly. ”To her, we’re all expendable.” Including Kirk. ”Brainiac is an enemy of Supergirl. And everyone else.” But it was one of the enemies Supergirl had fought against.

      ”Whistle Bay is where she’ll be, then. Most likely.”

      ————————-

      The Amazon remained firm and wouldn’t speak of where their Queen had went. Or any other. How could she? This Amazon was just one of many. One that didn’t have the answers The Associate would need or want. So her silence was the best speaker, in this case.

      The Associate, however, didn’t hear what she wanted to. ”I have two rules on this ship…” Pacing, circling the Amazon. ”Speak when spoken to…” Behind the Amazon now. ”… and speak when asked a question.” Then she plunged a dagger into the back of the Amazon. But before the Amazon could scream, The Associate crouched down and covered her mouth. With those bloodied blue gloves. This wasn’t sanitary. At all.

      ”Amazon skin is… what, ten times harder than humans? This little knife isn’t strong enough for a Kryptonian but…” Twisting it around. Slowly. It was evident the Amazon was in immense pain. But no sounds, due to the hand over her mouth. ”Where. Is. Steve. And. Diana?” The question repeated. ”Do take your time. It’s not like she’ll bleed out or anything.”

      Rocket chimed in, “How could anyone not like Super Girl! I read one of her articles about gun control—”

      .

      Tony’s eyes widened, “You read an article about gun control?” He even stood up from his chair, “….You. And Gun Control. Do not even fit in the same sentence”

      .

      Rocket replies, “…Peter roped me into it! I lost a bet! But Kara seemed really intent on her story, so I sat back and listened and had a good time. It was an awful time. I’ll never do it again!”

      .

      Groot replies, “I am Groot” I want french fries

      .

      Rocket, “…You’ve had four of them since we got here! King Size Versions too!” Then he turned to everyone within the gathered area, “Alright. It’s time to get The Captain. Take your places. Know Your Faces. This Braniac is one wild deuce”

      …………

      And one can presume that the Avengers, to the Justice League, to even the X-men are all in on this to get The Captain Back….But would he be alive when that time came?

      ………..

      Tony, just before the Iron Man Suit appears upon his body, speaks to Danvers, “…If your Captain had traveled with you on that space ship? Then we wouldn’t have had to double-back to get his ass. And from what I know of Kirk? He could have used Doppleganger” Tony warns, “…He’s going to need some new strategies going forward” And then he was gone…

      .

      .

      .

      ……………………………………..

      Kirk’s palms were charging up during this full on Brutal Display!

      So with very little effort: Kirk used DarkShear, Spear of the Midnight Black…

      If it even worked? Kirk hurled that weapon directly for the storm troopers!

      Would they get knocked down? Would they be killed?

      Secondly! Kirk attempted to use Pitch Black Lightening against The Woman!

      That is? If any of those attacks, reached Beyond His cell?

      If then? What was next for The Captain?

      Kara had indeed written an article about gun control. Guns didn’t do any harm to her but to others, they did. Danvers had read it and it was a good read. Talented reporter, her sister was. ”It was a very good read.” She informed, incase anyone would want to read it sometime. ”I’ll try and get in contact with Kara. I want to… make sure she’s okay.” Probably depressed about what the Associate had done. Would their sisterhood ever be the same?

      As for Stark’s words? Well? Maybe there was some truth to them. Kirk could have used Doppelgänger. Infact, it would have been the safer route. The Associate wouldn’t know the difference, most likely.

      ‘Please answer… we need you, Supergirl.’ She thought to herself. A combined force with The Avengers, The Justice League and the X-Men. They had to win this.

      ——————–

      It would seem said Force power worked (DarkShear). However, since it worked it was safe to assume the Associate had planned for that. So, she used the Force and lifted the Amazon right infront of that spear intended for the Stormtroopers. The spear impaled the Amazon first and then the Stormtroopers.

      The lightning however, was absorbed by the cell itself. Infact, it just bounced back the lightning to Kirk himself. The more lightning he used, the more he hurt himself. ”Well isn’t this exciting!” The Associate grinned widely. ”You killed her! Killed her! And you’re hurting yourself! How does that feel, Captain?”

      Ships! Teams! Strategies!

      All were heading directly for Whistle Bay!

      But was it the right place?

      And Had Raccoon been compromised during said scuffle back in the bar?

      The Bar where the infinity stone had been tampered with by Tempest Flare?

      .

      .

      .

      ……………………………………………….

      It was truly a nightmare unfolding for The Captain!

      The Dark-shear worked, but it went right for, “No!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

      He screamed, watching as the Amazon died by The Force! His Force!

      Fury! Derision! It had taken a tremendous amount of energy to exert that Weapon!

      .

      .

      .

      And ….then?

      .

      The Lightening surrounded the cell!

      Yet its main focus was to the occupant within the cell!

      ‘Any….attacks….go….directly….to…..the…’

      Kirk was trying to catch what remains of his breath…..

      ‘To…the…occupant….in the….in the cell….’

      Although his face is temporarily scarred up…

      Likely all over his body…

      From the Pure Black Force Lightening….

      Truth be told….

      It’s a wonder that Kirk is still breathing…

      Though he appears rather shaken up by The Lightening….

      They were on the right track. Whistle Bay. That was where the ship was.

      The Star Destroyer.

      That was now run by,

      The Associate.

      And all of those,

      Who follow her lead.

      ———

      The Amazon, along with the two Stormtroopers were indeed dead. Caused by that one Force power that he used. To top it all – the lightning he had used, had been hurting him. The more he used, the more it hurt. Not at all pleasant. ”Precisely so. Don’t think I wasn’t prepared for it.” The Associate said. ”Much like your beloved, you fight back. It won’t do you any good at all.”

      And just as a reminder, she imprinted images inside his head. Of Danvers… in that room… the water… all of it.

      Kirk unfortunately, had only been, mouthing those words….

      Kirk received the image imprint about Danvers into his mind….

      Sometimes trying to RISE up, within the cell…

      Other times, Kirk was simply trying to get a verbal response going….

      Nothing Yet…

      Nothing Impinged….

      .

      “I’ll Kill You” Kirk muttered, in-between drastic gasps for breaths…

      The Associate observed him as he was panting and trying to get back into his senses. The imprint surely didn’t make it any better. To be reminded of what she had done.

      To Danvers.

      To him.

      To those around them.

      Memories and images of what happened.

      ”I’m sure you will. As will the others you united against me.” The Associate said. More imprinting coming. Because she was that cruel.

      ”After I made her sister doubt me as much as is possible, I sent her videos.” It just never stopped, did it? ”Poor little Alex. Alone… with no one to hear her…” The imprints would, unless he had defences against it, feel as if he was physically there. ”She kept asking for you. Jim… Kirk… Jim… sobbing… crying… pleading…”

      If so, the images would only be seen. As if they were on a live feed or something like that. Still not a pleasant thing to witness, considering it is the woman he loves. Once again, the Associate didn’t really hold any emotions across her features. Almost as if devoid of them.

      Instead she just stared at Kirk as he panted. The harm, in a way, was self inflicted. Unknowingly so. She hadn’t done this – he had. The twisted thoughts of a twisted mind. He raised a valid question right there. ”No reason at all. Other than the fact I can. I can do this. So I am doing this.” Yep. Spoken like a true maniac.

      ”The funny thing here is…” A brief pause. ”I could have been anyone you’ve ever met. And you wouldn’t even know it.” Who knew how many people she had tricked and twisted.

      Still catching his breath…

      Yet now he was more on his back….

      That would change, soon enough….

      .

      Unfortunately…

      Kirk was beginning to think….

      “You wanted me to know who you are”

      HEAD-ACHE

      “You wanted me to see you…..”

      .

      Still catching his breath….

      “You wanted me on this Ship with you”

      Breaths….

      “You wanted me here….Why?”

      “You wanted to share your control with me? Why?”

      On The Enterprise…..

      She had allowed him so much freedom….

      Even when he had disobeyed The Rules….

      “Why The Change now, Associate?”

      The Associate was stood just infront of that cell as Kirk was adjusting his body some more. She listened to his words, his questions. Even after her regime here, there was much that remained unknown about her. Some questions may never even be answered. But who knows?

      ”Being as powerful as I am can get… boring.” The Associate said as she paced, though kept her eyes on him. ”So by revealing what I’ve done, I created excitement. Things have turned out to be rather… interesting as of late.” Oh indeed. It had pleased The Associate so far.

      ”Don’t deny that one part of you enjoyed having that power.” She was trying to fish for that admittance. ”Part of you enjoying using your power against Diana and Steve.” She wasn’t stopping. ”To be in the cell with her. Imagine what you could have done?” Anything, really.

      ”Ask yourself this Kirk and think hard on it.” She looked a him directly now. ”Why do you think I’ve allowed you free reign as Captain?” It was something to consider. For someone craving control, Kirk had a lot of it.

      Guinea Pig….

      Kirk is nothing more than a Live Experiment for Her…

      Which disgusts Him….

      Not as if he couldn’t figure that one out by himself!

      .

      “Excitement for Yourself”

      Kirk responds…

      “You’re bored. So You find a new scrap to entertain you”

      He’s been paying attention…

      Kirk is sitting down by now….

      After he’s slithered his way to the available bench/cot/bed against the wall…

      However, those walls: could prove to be rather deadly themselves.

      Which is why she might have emptied out the other prisoners?

      Not Good. Not a good sign at all.

      Which further led to Kirk focusing upon the walls, to the ceiling, the floor and lastly the cell barrier….Then right onto, “…..How the Hell should I know? I’m just some dumb hick from Iowa” Truth was, that Kirk had some issues with that, when everything started to fall apart, “….You wanted a Partner in your Excitement” Kirk looked up to face the woman, “And I was your ticket? Is that what I’m supposed to say?”

      He wasn’t too far off.

      Yet not exactly there.

      Good guesses indeed.

      Some more accurate,

      Than others.

      ”Not entirely correct although not entirely false, either.” On that, she could agree. Whatever prisoners might have been here, were no longer here. For one reason or another. ”Are you really a dumb hick from Iowa? I doubt that’s what Danvers seens when she looks upon you.” The Associate said.

      ”Sharing it with someone would have been more fun. But no, that’s not exactly it.” She then pointed towards the side of her head. ”Your thoughs? I can read them. Like an open book.” Not creepy at all. ”Which means our failed interrogation didn’t have to happen. At all.” The she glanced at the corpse of the Amazon.

      ”It’s such a shame. A life wasted. I think she was young, too.”

      Speechless…

      The barriers would prevent her from prying.

      Into his mind.

      Although she knew enough, as it was.

      She had read them when possible.

      To stay ahead of the game.

      The game plan was indeed the big question. Did she even have a plan? Hard to say. She was unpredictable, at best. ”Your allies will attempt to destroy me.” She stated, which was true. Everyone knew that. ”They might even succeed.” She didn’t seem to fear her eventual demise. ”The question is – how will you know I’m truly gone?” That was also a deep and valid question. There could be more of her out there, right now.

      ”Control. That’s what you want, isn’t it?”

      He’s actually disappointed that it didn’t happen…

      Although she brought up some interesting ideas, herself…

      Blinks.

      One never knew with The Associate. She might let him out. If she felt the need for it. Or she might not. He mentioned excitement. She had plenty of that, when she got to do what she wanted to do. There was no lack of that now.

      Now that the pot had been stirred.

      ”I could let you out, let you roam freely and see what you get upto?” That was one option. But was she going to? ”It would almost feel like being a Captain again.” Although she surely had some ulterior motive behind such a suggestion. Quite possibly so.

      She smiled at his remarks. Atleast they were entertaining. Something new, interesting. ”Remind me to keep your head intact once I rid you of your body.” Yep. Psycho. ”A talking head. That would be something.”

      ”Should you roam freely, whatever happens is down to you. It could be one glorious battle between good and evil.” One possibility. ”Or it could just end up horribly wrong for those you care about.”

      ”I do hope you realize I don’t need you alive, right? I just keep you alive because I can.” Because that wasn’t unpleasant to hear. ”Does the Kirk wish to be free? Or would he rather sit in that cell? I have more Amazons that are just waiting… waiting…”

      Kirk just stared at The Associate….

      Staared at her, after the words were spoken….

      Doppleganger, sure sounded good about now….

      If he’d have remembered it at the time, that time…THAT TIME…

      Nods.

      Kirk slowly rose to standing away from that bench.

      Suddenly….

      The Cell isn’t….

      He needs out.

      Cages. Obstacles! OUT! Out. OUT!

      Though he’d rather not touch the barrier…

      Barriers….

      And the Pitch Black Lightening…

      Remnants of that dark energy….

      Are continuing to slow him down as well….

      Kirk places his hands away from his sides…..

      In an effort to show that he’s willing to cooperate….

      If it’ll save an Amazons Life…..

      “Out…..Freely”

      Free wasn’t Always FREE.

      Free usually came with stipulations….

      Impediments….

      The stare was noted.

      Freedom was within reach.

      Yet so far away.

      But atleast it was,

      The illusion of being,

      Free.

      Better than being locked up.

      Which he hates.

      Despises.

      Since he seemed willing to cooperate, The Associate shut down the force field that was containing him. He was able to step out now. Could do anything he wanted, really. ”The ball is your yard now.” The statement rang true. ”Will you strike me down? Help your friends?” She shrugged. ”All down to you.”

      Kirk left that cell as fast as his body would allow him….

      Then there was the stepping over the dead bodies….

      And the not sliding on the floor..

      With all of the blood on it….

      .

      Decisions.

      Next it was the sheer possibilities of deadly traps built for this room…

      All he needs is that door unlocked and they’ll be out of this cell block….

      .

      Nods. Ball is in his yard…

      “Open the door. Get us out of this cell block”

      Orders were Flowing….

      Yellow was Glowing…

      The floor was indeed red.

      Very red.

      Blood had been spilled.

      By both enemy and ally.

      Blood was something this Non-Doctor was used to.

      ”As you wish, Captain.” The Associate said, walking over bodies as she approached the door and unlocking it. Which meant he was able to do as he wished, now. He could walk right out there. The Associate awaited his next move.

      He should have gone with the others, in retrospect. Even she knew that. Danvers had been right in her statement of remaining united and together. Probably a lesson to be learned here. Assuming it wasn’t too late. It was unclear what The Associate was truly planning.

      She glanced at Kirk as he asked his question. ”I just am.” Because that answered everything. ”I could be First Officer, I could be the Doctor. Or nothing at all.” Titles didn’t see to matter all that much to her. ”Titles won’t save anyone.”

      ”Here and there. I know your crew will come, sooner or later.” And she had no idea what Danvers and the others have in store. ”What excites me is that I don’t know how it’ll turn out. Not even I can see the future.” Not in that sense, atleast.

      ——————

      Danvers had been plotting and planning, now that they had reached Whistle Bay. Indeed – she had tried to think of the best tactic to handle this situation. There was no word from Kara yet, so she couldn’t rely on her for this mission. She was, however, of the opinion that The Associate feared the Girl of Steel.

      There was one loophole to exploit. Either an intention or not error that The Associate had made throughout this entire journey.

      ”I have a plan. And it won’t involve ship versus ship.” Danvers spoke up as she looked at everyone present. ”If you worry about there be no fighting, don’t be scared. There’ll be plenty.” A smirk was seen upon her lips. ”The plan is simple, yet risky.” Wasn’t all of their plans risky?

      ”The Associate made one mistake – we look alike.” There were no visible means of telling them apart. ”I’ve seen enough videos to be able to mimic her.” For lack of a better word – The Associate was her shadow. ”I’m going in. With Steve and Diana.” Sounded risky, right? ”They’ll act as prisoners. From there, we’ll hack a terminal with some help from Stark.” She could do the basic stuff. ”We find a terminal, we get the layout of the ship and we’ll go from there.”

      ”I’m not giving up on him. I refuse to leave him there at the mercy of that bitch.” She looked at everyone present. ”I’m getting my guy back. Our Captain.”

      Kirk was able to go wherever he wanted, due to his title as Captain once more. The Associate didn’t seem to care where. If he went to the Command Room or the Bridge, then he was free to. As for what The Associate was going to do, was unknown. Probably going to attempt some more Super-Blood things.

      ———–

      Of course someone would be against it. Stark of all people. Diana just glared at him, indirectly calling her old. She was just 5.000 years old. Over that, even. Looked as young as some of the people here, though!

      ”A voice on a video seldom sounds the same as the real deal.” There was that tiny detail. ”No one asked any of you to be here.” Which was the truth. They had agreed to come of their own choosing. ”I’m going in and I’m taking Diana and Steve with me.” No damn buts in that statement. ”It started with us three and Kirk.” It sure would end that way as well.

      ”You want to stop me? Nows your chance. Because I’m not backing down.”

      Diana hadn’t known Danvers for long and had been the first to be suspicious of her. Due to the ploy from The Associate. But Danvers had shown traits that inspired. She wants to save the guy she loves. Something Diana could relate to. And she had tried to keep herself together, as well as the others. So Diana stepped forward and stood next to Danvers. ”I stand with her.” A nod to Danvers. ”If you intend to stop her, you have to go through me.”

      The Team Has Assembled….

      Assembled…

      Into a Riot….

      “I didn’t say that I wouldn’t help”

      Stark quipped.

      “I said that it was a foolish decision”

      Puff.

      “If you ask me, though?”

      Stark’s got his eyes on Danvers…

      “…Lover-boy staying behind? He’s got a thing for her. Your Look-alike”

      Puff.

      ………………………….

      .

      Rocket was not a Happy Raccoon, “…I’m In!”

      He stood with Danvers.

      .

      …………………………

      .

      The Steve Trevor watched Diana….

      Stand with Danvers….

      Big SIGH…

      Now even He knows that Diana…..

      Goes Into Wars…

      That She Can Handle…

      So?

      He stood with the Raccoon…..As well.

      Danvers didn’t believe that for a second. Although everyone was allowed to believe what they wanted. ”He loves me and I love him.” She stated. ”That hasn’t changed.” She knew this to be true. And she would never doubt that for a second. ”The Associate is going down.” They had to make sure that she was destroyed. Once and for all.

      ”This is what Kirk does.” To everyone present, since no one knew him as well as she did. ”He stays behind so that the rest of us are safe. It gives us a chance to strike back. Hard.” No matter what time-line, this seemed to be the case. Of course they didn’t know of alternate timelines and all that. Not to the full extent, atleast.

      Danvers was glad to have Diana, Steve and Rocket with her atleast. It was a bld, yet simple plan. But she was sure it would work. However – there was one more thing to do in her part.

      It took but a few moments but once Danvers returned, she wore the same attire as The Associate. Her DEO tactical suit. It was most common for her to wear. And now The Associate had inherited that style. ”Grab whatever you might need.” To those following. ”We’re going in.”

      While The Team was Assembling….

      Kirk’s outlook was even worse…

      .

      Removed from The Bridge….

      Not Good….

      .

      Removed From The Command Station….

      Even Worse…

      .

      A new Face and one that Kirk sure isn’t familiar with…

      Removed from His Captains Chair….

      Removed from His Bridge….

      Removed from His Command Station…..

      There seemed to be more Death Troopers….

      Where-ever-the-hell-Kirk-would-turn….

      New Face….

      Not Hers….

      It would indeed be a new face. A man that he had never met before, was in infront of him now. It would seem The Associate had allies. Unless said term was used loosely. He didn’t give off any real expression as he looked at Kirk. Not yet atleast.

      ”Director Orson Krennic.” He introduced himself, stern and determined. ”And you, I know who you are.” He pointed lazily at Kirk. ”Former Captain once again turned Captain Kirk.” The Associate had filled him in.

      With him he had Death Troopers. If they had been injected or not, was anyones guess. Perhaps not everyone agreed with The Associate and her methods. It wasn’t impossible. Even charisma had its limits, after all.

      ———————–

      Meanwhile, the rescue team consisting of Danvers, Diana, Steve and Rocket had managed to get themselves an Imperial Shuttle. With some struggle, at first but the resistance had been put down. They now had the means of transport. All they needed was the clearance for landing. Someone would have to be a convincing voice for them. Possibly Diana. They had to get closer to the Star Destroyer, however. Soon. Very soon.

      Ironically…

      Kirk’s been put through much worse….

      Worse than even This…

      But he wasn’t smiling….

      No…..

      By now this temporary room….

      Temporary holding area….

      Is now mostly filled up with death troopers….

      Well?

      They were either going to end him now?

      Or later?

      Kirk thought to himself…

      No Ship.

      No Weapons….

      Save for those in that secret dimension…

      But Kirk has a bad idea that those are closed off to him…

      Closed Off……

      Closed Off………

      Kirk, felt rather closed in, by all of the Death Troopers….

      He even backed off….

      While they surrounded him…

      Surrounded him……

      Surrounded….

      “Great. You know who I am”

      Kirk responded…..

      “What’s your deal with The Associate?”

      He probably felt surrounded by all of the Death Troopers. They were a few, after all. Even if they weren’t amped up, they still posed a threat. As for his plans, they didn’t necessarily align with The Associate. They may be… civil around eachother. But that was it.

      ”A very floating deal.” He said simply. ”I supply a few Death Troopers. Without them being amplified by her Super-Blood experiments.” That was the whole story, really. ”As for you, your time on this ship has come to a close.” Motioned for the Death Troopers to try and apprehend Kirk. ”You’re being relocated.”

      Not a good thing, now that the crew knew where he was. ”You shouldn’t worry about your crew. They’ll fail in their rescue attempt.” He seemed so certain of it.

      ————————

      The clearance had been granted, which meant the rescue team had arrived. Steve and Diana were having their hands tied in the front for now, although it wasn’t wrapped too hard. It was easy to get out of. It was more to make it seem as if they were prisoners. Danvers walked infront of them, with Rocket at her side. They would ask about the Raccoon, no doubt.

      Two Stormtroopers raised their hands as Danvers and company approached. ”Halt! Who are these people and this… what the hell is that thing?”

      Danvers looked at the Stormtroopers. ”They’re—” Although she then changed her mind. And facial expression, too. ”You know the rules. Did I speak to you? Did I speak to him?”

      ”N-no… ma’am. I mean you did now but… ohshitdon’tkillme!”

      ”Get back to your previous stations NOW or I’ll make your lives a living hell.”

      She then smirked as she watched the two guards scurry off into the distance. ”Let’s find ourselves a terminal. Watch your backs.”

      Kirk had indeed played nice.

      And to a degree,

      It had been useful.

      For him.

      For his crew.

      But sometimes,

      Enough is enough.

      For him.

      For his crew.

      The Death Troopers that were closest to Kirk received the punches, which was maybe two of them. Even with their blackened armor, they stumbled backwards, due to Kirk and his enhanced nature. While it didn’t seem to fatally hurt them, he got some of them out of the way by doing so. The room still had about 8 of them. What they didn’t expect were the weapons that Kirk now had!

      ”Get him! Now! Everyone!” Krennic shouted as he of course tried to seek shelter by leaving rhe corridor/room that was now a full-on firefight. The 8 Death Troopers aimed their guns/rifles at Kirk, some even shooting. Although these had similar functions to that of a phaser. One stun, one kill function. Right now they were set on stun. But was he wanted dead or alive? Uncertain.

      As Kirk fired and eventually took down a few of them, more Death Troopers stormed into the room with their weapons drawn. Krennic had most likely gotten ALL of his available troops on the ship, to get Kirk.

      All this for ONE man.

      One Captain.

      Alone.

      Yet not alone.

      For he had allies.

      And a loved one.

      So close.

      Yet so far away.

      ——

      Danvers, Rocket and the two ‘prisoners’ (Diana & Steve), had managed to walk around the ship mostly without problems. No undetected but without issues so far. How long would it be until the facade/cover was blown? They had managed to find a control room, one that would surely contain a terminal.

      Danvers approached one of them and inserted a tiny chip into the terminal, before punching in a few commands. ”Stark, I’m in. It’s down to you now.” Via her communicator pin. Of course they wouldn’t have too much luck for much longer. They would soon find themselves surrounded.

      ”Hands in the air! Now!” One of the Stormtroopers commanded.

      Danvers turned around and looked at him. Playing The Associate wouldn’t work with these ones. She held her gun in her hand and dropped it to the ground as she raised her hand. All calm and collected. Waiting. Plotting. Planning.

      ”Kick it over here.” The Stormtrooper called over.

      Danvers crouched down, slowly as she did so. Eyes on the Stormtrooper in question. These were the troops of The Associate. Most likely amplified. 20 of them here. ”I have a better idea…”

      One down, 19 more to go! In the Control Room (or one of them). It offered cover, however. Dying wasn’t on the agenda today! ”Diana! Steve! Get to cover!” They had their weapons with them, so it should be no problem. ”Rocket you— just do your thing!”

      The firefight was on!

      ——–

      In her room. The room of The Associate, screens and lights were highlighting the various firefights going on. A smile was upon her face then. ”It’s showtime.” Amused. Excited.

      With the troopers that went down!

      Kirk was quick to send those guns….

      Those dropped guns….

      Into his hidden dimension!

      Why?

      It seems to be open!

      It seems to be working!

      Working!

      Working!

      Surrounded!

      Surrounded!

      More Troopers in every direction!

      Most of these Bucket-heads can’t shoot anyway!

      .

      ‘Crap!’ Kirk thought to himself!

      Kirk was right in that assessment.

      More so since he was there.

      To witness.

      Their crappy shooting.

      And their even,

      Crappier aim.

      Despite being,

      Death Troopers,

      Their aim was not,

      Something to brag about.

      But they were many and more were coming into that room, shooting their rifles, trying to hit that ONE man. Their high priority prisoner. One to be escorted off of this ship. A now chaotic ship, with enemies coming in. His allies were onboard and even more were coming.

      If Kirk managed to keep this up, he might eventually find a way out of this very room. But he would have to deal with the shooting Death Troopers that came in, one after another. There seemed to be no end to them!

      Where was Krennic? Where was The Associate?

      ——–

      Danvers, Rocket, Diana and Steve were fighting against ordinary yet not-so ordinary Stormtroopers. They had been injected with that Super-Blood. But that didn’t seem to stop either of these people. Steve offered cover with his now advanced shotgun, with Rocket placing his shots with his rocket launcher.

      Danvers ran from cover to cover, using her own advanced gun and Diana was the frontline fighter, using her shield and sword to protect the others from harm. Diana also worked as a distracting, due to being the strongest. It left the Stormtroopers exposed, allowing the team to shoot them in the backs. Quite literally so.

      ”Do we have that layout yet?” There had been no word from Stark yet. The upload should have been done by now! They were losing time here. ”Stark?!” Via her communicator pin. ”I needed that layout five minutes ago!” Behind cover, allowing her gun to cool down.

      ——————

      Docking Bay A3

      Stark didn’t seem to be at the line right now. There was a reason for that particular… err, accident. However – a certain Star-Lord was. ”Hey there, Co-Captain! You should have the layout in but a moment!” He had just landed the Milano in one of the Docking Bays.

      ”Quill? Where the hell are you?” Danvers to Quill.

      ”In one of the Docking Bays.” He replied via the comm. ”And things are a lot worse than we imagined.”

      ”Alone?” She groaned. Useless, annoying Star-Idiot. ”Who’s with you?” And thanks for the useless input, Star-Lord. ”I need to speak to someone else.”

      ”This is Natasha Romanoff. Or Black Widow, if you want.” Finally, someone capable. ”The layout is being sent to you in five, Danvers. It’s a large ship.”

      ”Thanks a bunch. What happened to Stark?” Danvers to Romanoff.

      ”I hit him. He’s knocked out.” Romanoff to Danvers.

      ”He can’t possibly be worse than Star-Lord. Right?”

      ”Quill is even more useless than Hawkeye.” Black Widow paused. ”Don’t tell him I said that.” As for the situation. ”Quill is being a whiner. It’s not that bad.”

      IF allowed?

      Kirk was going to go haywire with his powers?

      Would any of them work?

      Well, let’s put those ponies to the test, shall we?

      .

      Kirk gathered up the energy into his left palm!

      All of it into his palm!

      And let loose: Force Crush…

      To any and all within the Room…

      Including those that were coming into said room as well!

      .

      Secondly….

      Kirk utilized Deadly Sight…

      Which would Kill anything within his sight…

      .

      Third….

      Force Immunity, was enacted…..

      To Protect Himself, from other Force onslaughts…

      .

      Fourth….

      If any of those assaults were successful?

      Pending some that got through?

      From the other side….

      .

      Five….

      Kirk used….Move Object….

      Along with Teleportation, (to get himself out of the room)…

      Before the Wall (Move Object), from the other side…crushed every living being within this room………………..

      .

      But what would happen next?

      Was Kirk’s Victories short-lived?

      OR were things looking up?

      Up for the Captain?

      The Captain was a smart cookie indeed.

      These troops seemed to have little to no,

      Defence or protection against the Force.

      What they relied on was numbers.

      Attack in groups.

      They had underestimated the Captain.

      The Associate knew what he could do,

      What he couldn’t do.

      But had she shared that?

      With Krennic and his lackeys?

      The Force Crush that he used didn’t only crush bones but also the very armor that they wore. All of them at once, letting out a combined crushing sound of armor and bones alike. The Deadly Sight would kill any of them that he gazed upon. Ten… twenty… even thirty of them had been killed at this point. One of them, if allowed, might have been lucky enough to send off a stun shot to one of his legs. If said shot work, it would make said leg limp. Not to injure him but to slow him down. Atleast momentarily.

      The room had now become a tomb for the Death Troopers. Whoever was inside, had now been crushed due to Move Object. And Kirk was now out of said room. Blinking red lights and alarms were going off. It was impossible to miss that the Star Destroyer was under siege.

      Stormtroopers and Red Shirts were running from one corridor to another, weapons drawn. But they didn’t seem to even notice the Captain at this point. Their focus was elsewhere. But where? Who? Why?

      ‘Intruders in DB3!’ A monotone voice spoke out. ‘Intruders in DB3!’ DB3, would be Docking Bay 3. ‘Security break in Control Room S5!’ The voice repeated. ‘Security breach in Control Room S5!’

      Troops running towards various destinations about now. It was as if they had never been through a space battle before. Or a breach, for that matter.

      —————————–

      Team Danvers

      The team consisting of Danvers, Rocket, Diana and Steve had now cleared out the remaining Stormtroopers in this Control Room. Which was numbered S5. However more would be coming and soon. They all knew that. They had to separate somehow. It was bold and risky but else they would end up trapped.

      This team was in the middle section of the ship about. The team consisting of Black Widow and Star-Lord would be at the rear of the ship. Kirk, in this case, would also be in the middle. But on the other side of where Team Danvers was.

      ”Take Rocket with you, Alexandra.” Diana said, as they had a moment to lay out a strategy. ”Me and Steve will make sure there is a way to the Docking Bays.” Either of them really.

      Danvers looked at them all. These brave, loyal and amazing people. Coming together to save The Captain. The guy she loves. The Lone Captain. Who wasn’t as alone as he might think. ”Right.” She took a breath, knowing it had to be this way. ”I have a score to settle with The Associate as well.”

      ”Widow? I need you and Star-Lord to secure the Docking Bay. We need a way out of here.” She gave the order. ”I also need a full report on other Docking Bays.” Via the pin.

      ——————

      ”There are six in total. But they are connected. Three on each side of the Star Destroyer.” Via the pin she had, while gunfire was heard all over. Or rather – blaster rifles.

      ”How many other people do we have? I want those Docking Bays secured and blocked. No one gets in, no one gets out.” Danvers to Widow.

      ”Got the whole roster to choose from. Take your pick.”

      ”Assign them. Whoever you think is best suited. Do you have the layout?”

      ”Sent your way now, Danvers. We’ll keep this Bay open.” Before she returned to kicking some Stormtrooper can!

      There may have been?

      A little bit of a limp to Kirk’s walk, upon leaving the room: where Krennic and his lackeys, had tried to take Kirk off of the ship. Kirk is not impervious to pain. Nor is he a wizard with getting out of harms way. Why? Danger Finds Kirk, most all of the time. All of the time.

      However?

      The Red Lights. The Alarms. This wasn’t going on before he got removed from the Command Station. Annnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnd, Force Illusion was immediately used: to appear as another storm trooper. Where was Kirk going to go? If allowed that is? Towards where the siege was taking place. That Location. DB3. IS somewhere that Kirk now needs to be.

      If allowed?

      Kirk fell into line with the other standard troopers, matching their pace, matching their weapons and falling into line. Why? It’s time to leave this rust-bucket…

      Along the way?

      Kirk used Astral Projection, which projected images of his likeness throughout the insides of the embattled Star Destroyer. Why? Doppelganger, would have been too easy to pin-point the source. Granted: AP is practically the same in nature. Practically the same….

      No one saw Kirk,

      That storm trooper to the right!

      Hit his head on the low ceiling above….

      Nope…

      No one saw that!

      The correct term would be sieges happening all over. As of yet, in Control Room S5 and Docking Bay A3. The Stormtroopers noted the other Stormtrooper (Kirk) and then looked at him for a moment. ”Aren’t you a little short to be a Stormtrooper?” One of them said, although there was no time to really answer that. ”Nevermind, let’s get to DB-A3!” Docking Bay A3, where Star-Lord and Black Widow would be.

      ”… I’m hungry.” The one to the left said, while the one in front groaned.

      ”I’m surprised the armor still fits. You eat too much, pal.” Shook his head. This seemed to be a trio of Stormtroopers. With the one on the left, the one in front and Kirk to the right.

      ”The Associate is terrible at feeding us, remember?”

      ”So send a complaint? Geez, get off my shoulder for once, will you?” He then looked to Kirk. ”See what I have to deal with all day? I’m so going to quit after this. I swear.”

      ————————–

      Team Danvers

      They were now progressing, having left Diana and Steve in the Control Room S5. They had to find the holding cells where Kirk would be, most likely. But that wouldn’t be an easy ride for either Danvers or Rocket. Because they were shot at! From the sides!

      The walls were lowered, showing Stormtroopers on each side with blaster rifles shooting at Danvers! Much like a shooting range. It was a long corridor. The door behind her had closed shut! So the only way was forward! So she ran and ran, as fast as she could while trying to dodge the blaster fires!

      Rocket had no issues here, since he was so short. They probably didn’t even know he was there. Just as Danvers was closing in on safety, she was hit in the shoulder and fell to the ground, although she was safe. Blaster fire to the shoulder but safe.

      Holding Cells. They had to get to the— wait. The Amazons! They were still onboard! They had to save those too! As she was laying there, trying to catch her breath, those thoughts came to her. They had to save Kirk and the Amazons. Would they have to split up even further? Decisions.

      ———

      Team Widow

      By now, Black Widow had assigned other teams to the other Docking Bays. There was no resistance in space yet but that could change. More so since it was Nova Corps territory. And they were the law here. They had to plan this accordingly. Which was easier said than done.

      ”Danvers? Teams have been assigned and are on route.” Widow to Danvers.

      ”Good, good…” Trying to catch her breath. ”You holding up?”

      ”For now. There’s a lot of them.” To put it mildly.

      Star-Lord helped out as well while trying to keep Docking Bay A3 clear. The one Kirk and his Stormtrooper pals were going for. But they were many and never ceased to come in. In droves. Aim was shitty, as expected but if they got the upper hand, they would be outnumbered and cornered.

      Other teams had now been assigned, with Black Widow and Star-Lord in DB-A3.

      By Black Widow.

      – Mystique & Magneto to DB-A1

      – Cyborg & Psylocke to DB-A2

      – The Flash & Aquaman to DB-B1

      – Winter Soldier & Captain America to DB-B2

      – Hawkeye & Batman to DB-B3

      Kirk is aware that something is going on. Alarms. Red Lights. Flashing Lights. Could it be for him? Can he get to the Amazons? Will this Force Illusion even last? Time is Precious…

      Although Kirk was rather humbled to find that these Storm Troopers, were much like those of the Federation. They got issues, too! Almost as if they seemed like a normal human being? Normal. Human. Being. Or is someone onto him? His: Bestest Friend? That Friend…

      Annnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnd! It wasn’t long before Kirk used, Force Disarm: to HOPEFULLY, send their guns, directly into his Hidden Dimension. Hidden! And, hopefully: with their weapons gone? Kirk raised the blaster pistol to the soldiers face who spoke about the landing bay, “….Where are the Amazons?”

      For the other Pair of the trio: if allowed? Kirk used Force REND to their insides, then Force Flew them up against the wall! Backs to the wall! Left hand grip in place, to keep their insides locked in the, Force REND.

      Kirk, though: is fully alert. Save for that little bit of a limp, just a little bit, of a limp. “Where are they?” Singular in Determination: Kirk is going to free those Amazons himself!

      Just about anyone would be able to get to the Amazons, as long as they knew the way there. All Kirk would need, would be directions. And quite possible a keycard in order to gain access. Something not everyone here would have. Let alone the Stormtroopers.

      The two he had been accompanied with were surprised when their weapons were… gone! ”What the—” One uttered as they turned around and looked at Kirk. The other ones were quite easily taken care of thanks to Force Rend. Which left these Stormtroopers at his mercy. ”That way!” One of them pointed rapidly! ”Cell Block 174. All of the cells are filled! You’ll need a…” Looked to only other one standing.

      ”Keycard. You’ll need it.” Nod, nod. ”Only The Associate has it!” Not even Krennic had that kind of access onboard. Both of them were terrified of Kirk, having seen what he just did to their comrades. ”Unless you’re some pro hacker…”

      ”Don’t be daft! No one can bypass that!” The other one countered. Although he might very well be wrong.

      ————————-

      Team Danvers

      Danvers and Rocket continued their trek, although it was getting more difficult now with Stormtroopers around every corner. The resistance was heavy and it was getting even worse. The key was to avoid close combat, using range. The Super-Blood didn’t offer much in terms of ranged weaponry. Hence them keeping their distance.

      ”Hate to break it to ya…” Rocket said before shooting out a rocket, taking out a couple of Stormtroopers. ”But this seems like a waste of time if you ask me.”

      ”Good thing I didn’t ask you.” Danvers muttered, taking cover, before placing a shot. ”Go back if you’ve changed your mind.”

      Stubborn woman. Even more stubborn than him. ”He never gives me Christmas presents! Your guy! Why are we even bothering?”

      ”If you just keep your mouth shut, we’ll give you Christmas presents. Sound okay to you?” She could do without a whining little raccoon. ”We get Kirk, we get the Amazons and then we’re out of here.” Facing The Associate was sadly not going to be a priority this time around. Unless the opportunity presented itself. Still – saving Kirk and the Amazons was a priority. More important. Much more.

      ———

      Team Widow

      More and more came in. Both Star-Lord and Black Widow were firing off blaster bolts, gunning down the opposition. Even using their own weapons against them. Static was heard via her comm as she took cover once more.

      ”… Lo—-sssssttttt—- Cyb—— locke—- D—-A—–2—-” The static was from of the other teams.

      ”I didn’t get all of that. Repeat.” Widow spoke via the comm. It would seem as if their systems were being jammed. Or an attempt to. The message was sadly one of losses. Two on their side.

      Docking Bay A2 had been heavily fortified and Cyborg and Pyslocke had met heavy resistance there, which had ultimately ended in their own deaths. One Docking Bay would remain open and unblocked. A free passageway for anyone wanting in and out.

      ”Who else is left?” Widow asked via the comm but no reponse. It would seem that whoever was onboard the Star Destroyer, was their last hope. Unless you counted Stark and Jarvis being left behind to deal with the technology.

      A Stromtrooper group of three got the jump on Black Widow and fired their blaster rifles at her! However, Star-Lord swooped in and took the hits for her, while firing at them, downing the three. ”Quill!” She called out, checking his wounded. He would live, for now. But he wasn’t in much of a fighting condition.

      A Thermal Detonator would be used by Black Widow and tossed at a group of ten, sending them flying after the explosion.

      Key-card.

      IT was probably another bull-shit tactic, for some bull-shit stall time. Nods. But Kirk could play along with their game, in fact: He wants to play right into their hands. In fact: Kirk dropped those two soldiers to the ground, (released the Force REND on their insides): yet kept the blaster pistol locked onto the same soldiers face. “….Lead the way. We’re going into proper formation here” Which meant, two soldiers in the front. Kirk behind the soldier that he’s got with the blaster pistol and the other soldier beside him. Staying in formation, would be much better cover, than a lone storm trooper during what seems to be a siege of the Destroyer.

      There was also the idea that The Associate was observing ALL of this action from a safe harbor, somewhere, within this ship? Could be? Maybe? A little telepathy wouldn’t hurt, right? ‘Enjoying the Show?’ You guessed it: if the attempt even worked, to use telepathy upon The Associate. ‘Should I kick it up a notch? Did your lackeys bring you up enough popcorn?’ Kirk NO!

      Until. Until, they might reach the corridor of all corridors for Cell Block 174. Bad memories for sure. Kirk’s got his own issues with Destroyer Cells. Then Kirk spoke to his three hostages, “…You guys want to live, I’m sure?” Would the Blaster Pistol open the lock? No. “…You want more food? I can even get you that where I come from” Dark-shear? Maybe that would work? What if this cell block was impervious to Force Powers, Kirk? But not ethereal rounds.

      Kirk removed Discord, which would mold to his free hands grip, (since the right still has the blaster pistol within his grasp). “Stay back. Give Me Room”

      And what would happen to The Captain?

      Rush in too early….

      Time to hesitate….

      Did something go horribly wrong?

      Was someone else waiting for them, at this cell block?

      Traps are traps, are traps, right?

      Who knows?

      We’ll find out soon, right?

      Or was that, Force Illusion, starting to lose it’s Illusion?

      Maybe….

      Lead the way. That they could do, right? The Associate wouldn’t know, right? They hoped not! Although they would be fooling themselves. The Associate was indeed observing all of this.

      ”R-right! This way!” One of them said, recovering from the pain endured. They stuck to formation, not wanting to die at the hands of Kirk. Kirk would be on his way to the Cell Blocks in question, along with his escorts.

      The telepathy worked and it worked both ways too. ‘I am enjoying myself. Are you? Running around, playing the hero? There are so many of you on here now…’ Heroes, that was. ”You want the Amazons alive, yes? I can offer that.’ More deals from The Associate. ‘You leave this ship. With the Amazons and your friends get to live.’ She had offered a deal.

      The Force powers would not have worked, nor a blaster. But ethereal rounds would, since they pass the physical realm. Which mean Kirk had free passage to the Holding Cells. The Stormtroopers were following his commands, not wanting to die. They wanted food and freedom. Which was something they hadn’t been given so far. Or much of it, anyway.

      Kirk would find no obstacles in his way. It was almost… too easy. The Amazons were in cells, some more worried than others about the commotion. Even in here one could tell the Star Destroyer was under siege.

      ————

      Team Widow

      ”You need to… establish communications…” Star-Lord said in between heavy breaths. Being hit by those blaster bolts sure hurt a lot.

      ”No way. I can’t leave you here. You’ll get swamped.” Widow protested, while shooting from cover to the incoming Stormtroopers.

      ”Without it, we won’t get anywhere and we’ll all die. Look, I can handle it.” He reassured.

      Hesitation. Uncertainty. Yet her expression remained neutral. As she stood up. ”After this, we’re all kicking your ass, Quill.” Widow took another shot or two. ”Cover me.” Before she rushed out and Star-Lord offered cover!

      ——–

      The Associate

      Moments after Black Widow had made her way to the Control Room where Diana and Steve would be, The Associate made her way into Docking Bay A-3. Where Quill was. To remain true to her act, she shot those Stormtroopers she found and rushed up to Quill. Two could play this game. If Danvers could pretend to be The Associate, she could do the same. ”Quill, we gotta get out of here.”

      ”What?! I just sent Black Widow in there mome—” He didn’t get to finish that before The Associate used Force Crush on him.

      ”Surpriiiiiise!” Before slamming him into the ground. Hard. He was surrounded AND in the same room as The Associate. With no means of communication.

      Kirk wasn’t going in the cell; cells were bad, they contained him, disturbed him. Yet he’s gained some associates of his own throughout the walk. And keeping them alive was his own best ticket out of here, anyway, for the long haul. However….

      Kirk raced into the cell area, to use Discord to release the cell block doors containing the Amazons. Meanwhile, the Associate was giving him a play by play from her point of view. Most of it, Kirk could imagine. There were confident Amazons and then there were these worried Amazons. Kirk took a chance and tossed some of the extra blaster pistols to the Confident Amazons, “…I’m here to help you out of here. Shoot me if you want? But we’ll all pay for it. You got it?”

      Till Kirk heard an actual reply from The Associate, offering more deals, more deals than old Lucifer Morningstar. ‘..So what else is going on Associate? Your ship appears to be in a flux of screwups?’

      If one can presume that the Amazons understood that the Kirk stormtrooper was on their side? Then he wouldn’t get shot, right? Though he kept Discord within his grasp, to fire on possible incoming soldiers towards this cell block. “Time to Move” To all involved. Kirk was maintaining formation with the prisoners in the middle and the trio on each sides. Cube Style Transport. One Trooper at each end, of the cube, if that makes sense?

      Where was Kirk going to take them?

      ‘So where’s all of the hornets racing to, Associate? Give me a clue?’ Perfect Formation. Declarations. Trust may get Lost for Kirk: In Translation…..Translation….

      Landing bays are like Constellations. Frustrations.

      Signs on the Doors of Frustrations…

      Discord would work like a charm on the control panels supplying the holding cells with power for the force fields standing in between the Amazons and their freedom. They were obviously confused as to why a Stormtrooper would help them, although asking questions unless asked was a bad move. Or speaking unless spoken to. They had gotten that spiel very early on.

      The blaster pistols were accepted and by now, the freed Amazons were equipped with said blaster pistols. A fighting chance, finally for the smaller group Kirk now had. As for the two Stormtroopers from before, they were following. This new recruit (Kirk) seemed to know his stuff. With Kirk stating the situation, the Amazons nodded. They were with him. No shooting him.

      The Stormstroopers and Amazons stuck to the formation Kirk had ordered.

      ———————

      The Associate

      As for Kirk, the first thing he would hear would be bones cracking. That sound echoing through his head. And then screams of pain. A male. A certain male. But he wouldn’t know who. And then… it stopped. Silence. Deathly silent. Maybe the victim was dead? Or perhaps she just stopped the sounds from burrowing into his ear drums.

      ‘Minor screwups. These people are just fodder. Meat shields.’ She seemed to hold no real regard for life. The opposite as to what a doctor should be like. ‘They are buzzing all over. Slowly dying. You are losing people, Kirk.’ That much was true. Atleast three were killed by now. ‘Some are going for the holding cells. But most are defending the Docking Bays.’

      —————

      Team Widow

      She had caught up with Diana and Steve who had done a wodnerful job in keeping Control Room S5 clear. A lot of bodies and weapons were about. ”We need to set up communications again. Else we’re going in blind.” She informed the princess and her knight.

      ”We will cover you.” Diana nodded in response. More troops would surely be arriving soon.

      ———————————

      Team Danvers

      Danvers and Rocket had struggled their way to some of the Holding Cells. But not the ones containing the Amazons. ”Damnit! We’re at the wrong place.” She uttered, frustrated. ”How many Holding Cells are there…” Looking at the digial map.

      ”Too many. I keep telling ya, we should get out while we have the chance.” Rocket said once more.

      ”If we can just get the communications back, we’re set.” She hoped Diana and Steve were on that, since that room was their post.

      And her thoughts were on Kirk. How she misses him and wishes he was here, right now. Her lovely guy. Soon. He would be with them. She would make sure of it.

      Since Kirk has his Observer, watching these events play out on screen? There was no use in hiding his thoughts. Well, maybe? She wants a Show! So let’s give her a show! Ten Amazons. Three storm troopers that have been turned into assets! Fourteen against thousands!

      Hallways.

      Corridors.

      Kirk was looking for the Landing Bays, all while pacing within formation: cube style formation. In the front, off to the right: and hearing The Associate, in the back of his mind. Fortunately, Kirk and this new crew, were getting closer to the Landing Bays. But he hasn’t finished off this Associate yet. That’s the problem! Finding Her. Why? Obvious. Kirk’s not leaving this ship, nor any other, until this situation has finally been resolved.

      Secondly.

      It was painful to over-hear, The Associate: exact revenge onto the unknown man. Who-ever the hell it might be? Sure must have a connection to him? But who could that be? ‘All of this to get me back, Associate? I’m touched’, Kirk telepathically replies to The Associate, ‘Where are you now? Who did you hurt? Because I just might be stopping by for a short visit?’ To end The Thing!

      This particular docking bay was full, which meant that they were running out of options. Kirk spoke to the other storm troopers, “…Where are the other bays? What are the short cuts?” Obviously, still in the corridors, “Where’s the smallest hangar?”

      And if more storm troopers tagged along?

      Kirk will mold those troopers into the cube formation as well.

      Kirk has this idea, that maybe?

      Maybe he wasn’t as alone as he thought he was?

      Maybe? Who knows? He’s been wrong before!

      This entire was a show to her. Observing… listening… as if she had expected this to happen. And to a degree, she had. Although the plan might not be as successful as they might have thought. Anything could happen at this point.

      There were no estimates as to how many troops were under her command on this particular ship. She might have more hiding in space. They didn’t know where or when The Associate started her twisted game. Could have been years down the line. Even hundreds of years.

      One of the Landing Bays would be within reach soon enough. DB-A3, the one where Star-Lord and Black Widow had been guarding. Aligned to it, on the opposite side, was DB-B1. These Docking Bays could be sealed off and separating them from eachother. However this hadn’t been done yet.

      The docking bays would contain Stormtroopers in plenty, along with Imperial Shuttles. Which was what the heroes had used to gain access to the Star Destroyer, aside from Star-Lords own starship – the Milano.

      They are just around us.” One of the Stormtroopers said. Although it was difficult to tell, due to all of the commotion. ”There are six total.” He also informed. ”Smallest is the one Krennic occupied. But that one is filled with Death Troopers!” By now, everyone fighting would have noticed that they hadn’t fought any Death Troopers. Aside from Kirk.

      The smaller Landing Bay was also the A2 one. The very one where Cyborg and Psylocke met

      their fate. Some Stormtroopers joined up with Kirk and the others as they walked the corridor. Not all of them were willing to follow The Associate, even though Kirk looked like one of them.

      ——————————-

      The Associate

      ‘I could choose anyone on this ship. Question is – do you even know who is onboard this ship at this point?’ He would probably have a clue, although who was here for certain would be hard to say. ‘In one of the Landing Bays.’ Not vague at all. But she was within the A3 one.

      ————————–

      Team Widow

      The terminal had been used once more, to try and establish communications between everyone onboard. Even this room was filled with Stormtroopers. Luckily their aim was rather off, so it was no real danger. Black Widow was using the terminal, while Steve Trevor offered cover from behind one of the obstacles in the room. Diana Prince was on the frontline.

      However, some of the Stormtroopers got up close and one managed to hit Diana. They were nowhere near as powerful as her or Supergirl but it was enough to send her into a wall. More and more gathered to do the same. Punching and kicking. The Super-Blood would come in handy for them now. Others remain loyal to their blaster rifles, trying to gun down Steve and Natasha.

      ”Did you have to pick the weapon with the slowest cooldown time?” Widow commented on Steve’s choice of a new hightech shotgun.

      ”Old habits and all that.” He grumbled as he crouched down, waiting for the cooldown to take its toll. ”What, you had to choose the tightest outfit in the closet?” Of course his worries were with Diana, even though he knew his Princess could handle it. He offered the back-up!

      ”… old habits.” Widow said with a faint smile and provided fire support of her own. To help Diana Prince with the amped Stormtroopers!

      ——————————–

      Team Danvers

      By now, communications would be up once more. Static via the communicator pin. ”I can hear you now. Who else is on this ship?” Danvers spoke via the pin.

      ”Widow here. We lost contact for a moment. I’m with Diana and Steve.”

      If they kept this up, they would surely be swarmed. ”Listen; me and Rocket are further into the ship.” She said. ”Go to the Landing Bays. We can’t keep this is up for much longer.” Which meant retreat would be their goal for now. Or try to. ”We’ll try and make it there as fast as we can. But if you see chance to escape, take it.” There was no shame in surviving.

      Get the Amazons out safe? Or keep them with him much longer? Keep them safe? OR get back to an awaiting Crew? Kirk has no idea where they could be. They’ve got to be in a Landing Bay, yes? Which one? Which one? Distractions. Kirk could use for some distractions.

      But those have to be timed perfectly with other defenses. His Crew.

      These storm troopers, don’t want to be here, either. But why were these storm troopers, gravitating to this group and staying with them? The Associate, most likely: is directing them, to and from other locations. And there was that problem. Problem. The Associate already knows where he’s located.

      Old Gut Feelings, and all of that.

      Old.

      Gut.

      Feelings.

      Shooting at the hangar bay, will gain them nothing: except, exposure to The Associate. “Where’s the flight maintenance equipment room?” Kirk asks the troopers. “And Weapons Storage?” Kirk knows exactly where the Command Station is located within this ship: and, it could be risky to go back? Especially, when he’s so damn close to Freedom! “If there are any other dissenters, direct them here?” Those who are against The Associate. “…Can we get Orson involved as well?” Why? “I Want that imperial shuttle” Kirk is indicating the imperial shuttle with all of those death troopers inside of it within the Landing Bay area. “Why is there an opening in the floor, for the hangar bay?”

      Or did Kirks hearing register something of a groan? From, Some-where? Maybe to that Communications Room? Could be a hunch? Could be just a room where they’re interrogating some poor sap, right? Wait? The Associate did say something about being in one the Landing Bays!

      ….

      Old Flickers.

      Old Worries.

      Old Memories.

      Old Turbulence.

      Now is NOT the Time for this Jim!!

      Kirk was indeed left with options. All of them involving risks. Then again – wasn’t that a red thread throughout their missions, no matter what timeline?

      Keep the Amazons with him?

      Save them?

      Go back to the crew?

      The choices were there for him to make. The Stormtroopers that had gravitated towards Kirk were few in comparison to the army that The Associate had. Either they followed her out of loyalty. Or perhaps even fear. It could be either, it could be both. Kirk and his group of Stormtroopers and Amazons would indeed be within one of the hangars.

      ”Up there.” One of the Stormtroopers pointed. There would be a bridge of sorts, going from one entrance to another. It was connected to all of the other Docking Bays as well. ”Anyone has access, even us troopers.” Something that made getting in and out of the Star Destroyer easy during battle.

      The bridge would allow anyone to overlook the majority of the landing bay. On it, there were Stormtroopers with sniper rifles. Should Kirk decide to get up there, he would have to deal with them. As long as he didn’t get into a physical fight, they should pose no problem. However it was down to him there.

      ”We can get the weapons!” The other Stormtrooper offered. ”They won’t think twice, if we do.” The weapons were here and there, really. They had portable armories, used for deployment planetside. ”Whatever we need to get out of this junkship!”

      The Imperial Shuttle would be guarded by Death Troopers. They had a choice here – fight or try and reason with Krennic himself. Could he get them out? Could The Associate get them out? She was the only one who had offered it to Kirk. Krennic had offered being locked up. Another choice to be made.

      ”That opening is a secret passage.” Not so secret anymore, though. ”It’s a tight fit but it’s connected throughout the entire ship. Goes all the way to the Bridge and Command Room, it does.” Under the floorboards.

      ——————————-

      The Associate

      She had indeed mention a landing bay. One that was more silent than the others. Why? Because whatever Stormtroopers were there, were gone. It was just her now and Quill on the floor. Not moving. Not to mention his pride and joy – his ship, Milano. All within reach. She could easily take it and be on her merry little way, to further plot and plan twisted games.

      But perhaps she was waiting for Kirk to consider? His potental ticket out of here. Had she ever truly broken a promise or a deal? Something to consider. For now she was standing there, calm and collected despite the chaos in the surrounding landing bays.

      The Associate. The body of Star-Lord on the floor. And a starship. Waiting. Calculating.

      —————————

      Team Widow

      Diana managed to get the upper hand, in no small part thanks to Steve and Widow offering fire support. Her sword and shield were used against the Stormtroopers, cutting through their armor, despite their Super-Blood. That was not to say their punches and kicks had done a number on her. Despite her durability, she had taken quite a few hits during that showdown.

      ”We need to make for the landing bays.” Widow told her two partners. Steve and Diana.

      ”What about Danvers?” Steve asked, catching his breath.

      ”It was her idea. We can’t keep this up.”

      Diana took down the last one for now, but the sound of more coming was there. ”What of Kirk? Has he been located? The Amazons?” She asked. Prisoners were a high priority. As was Kirk.

      ”That was down to Danvers and Rocket. They weren’t found. Maybe they made it out.” Widow wasn’t sure. There had been no report of such. ”We gotta move.”

      And so the trio started fighting their way towards the landing bays. The one where The Associate would be at. Kirk would be able to spot this trio, along with The Associate, should he decide to get into one of those flight maintenance rooms.

      ———————–

      Team Danvers

      If fighting their way towards the front of the ship had been difficult, fighting their way back to the landing bays was even more difficult. By now it seemed as if most of their focus was on Danvers and Rocket. Maybe they had realized that holding the landing bays would serve no real purpose. Yet this battle seemed to have no winner, no losers. Both sides had lost people, yet nothing had really been accomplished yet.

      ”If she survives this, it’ll just be a repeat all over again.” Gritting her teeth as she reloaded her current rifle. She, in this case, being The Associate.

      ”She could be anywhere! How do we even know she’s ON this ship?!” Rocket protested.

      ”We’ll fight our way back and regroup with the others.” They couldn’t chase a ghost. It was too risky. ”Better retreat and fight another day.” They just had to get back to the others.

      Would be returning right on back to that Command Station. Risky. Might not Make it back, right? Predictions. Traps. Might not make it back. Trapped.

      “Weapons. Men. Bring them here. Right Here. Now. If you see an odd ship in the Landing Bay. It’s mine. Don’t even question it. Put it all on me”

      Which will allow those storm troopers reputations to remain intact.

      Kirk’s gotta think of his new crew, right? Which means that if worse comes to worse: he’ll fake being a prisoner again. Which will, most likely: bring his soul in half. So long as (She’s) out of reach.

      One.

      “I’m going back to the Command Station” Big surprise. “..If my instincts are correct? More of the party will be showing up here soon?” He’s certain of it. Rebels. Dissenters of The Associate. Kirk needs to wait, though. Gather. Regroup. Plans for this ships annihilation, are already within his sight. “Inform Rennic that I’ll be in the Command Station. I’m ready to have all of the soldiers injected with The Super-blood and that The Associate is there with me…” She won’t be, and that’s the point.

      Two.

      This maybe that time, when the rest of the crew start to arrive back to this area. Their Area. The Rebel Gathering Area. Kirk and the presumable: thirteen rebels. A number that’s growing with each new dissenter? What number is it now? Twenty? Thirty? Who knows?

      Three.

      The Room. The room with the poor sap in it. The landing bay with The Associate. Kirk’s got plans. Maybe not what he’s actually thinking? Maybe he’s just spinning options in his head, to keep her guessing, yes? Telepathy, wasn’t always the best option. It could be used to divert.

      Everything at this point could be a potential trap. Everyone and everything. Yet it could also be an opening. Maybe The Associate was secretly forcing people to think? To think outside the box, so to speak. Or maybe she was just having the day of her life just about now. Anything was possible, nothing impossible. Despite the odds, they had a shot at this. The question was though – what was the end goal with this?

      Gather men and weapons. Nodding to show they understood. Surely there would be more Stormtroopers and Red Shirts not truly wanting to be here. The Super-Blood had been an illusionary choice. Be killed for saying no, die during the process for not being compatible or just do it and become… well, powered. Amped. How many had passed in these experiments was unknown. Perhaps that was for the better.

      ”Roger that! Odd ship is yours and we gather others to this… cause.” If that was the correct term for it. A rebellion of sorts. However, it was about surving. Escaping. Not fighting. Not yet. Atleast not in their minds. Gathering Stormtroopers and Red Shirts that had survived the experiments could prove useful. There were answers to be had from them, given the right time and place.

      They were surprised to hear he was even considering going back to Command Station. Although that room/area would give him the most power over the ship. He could put the entire Star Destroyer on lockdown from there. One would need keycard clearance for that but Kirk had already found a solution around that. With luck, he might just find a good hacker along the way as well.

      While they didn’t fully understand the plan that had been cooked up within Kirk’s mind, they didn’t question it. Despite their short time together, they had seen how he handled things. He was an inspiration to all Stormtroopers. ”We’ll do what we can! You heard him, let’s get to work!” To the Stormtroopers and Amazons.

      ——————————

      Team Widow

      Kirk had also been right in his assumption that more of the crew would arrive close to where they were at. It was confusing to see him conversing with Stormtroopers but seeing the Amazons brought some reassurance. More so to Diana. She recognized them. Fellow sisters.

      ”You are safe. And alive.” Diana exclaimed, seeing Kirk in person again. She felt guilty for all of this. For not trusting him sooner. But there would be time for apologies and making up later. Now wasn’t the time.

      ”If he’s even half as badass as Danvers claims, you shouldn’t be so surprised, princess.” Widow cut in as she took a look at the ones gathered. ”What’s the plan? Danvers and Rocket are still on this ship.” And the other heroes fighting in the other landing bays.

      Steve was still bitter about what happened initially. How Kirk had used Force Crush on him and Diana. The way he had looked at his woman as well. Even in the same cell as her. He looked at both Natasha and Diana for a moment. They shouldn’t trust him so easily. He could very well be with The Associate on this! Everything pointed towards it, according to him.

      Danvers, however, had proven to be trustworthy. Would he ever trust Kirk? Maybe. Maybe not. But that was neither here or there at the moment. He sighed. ”She did all of this for you and the Amazons.” He didn’t mention the urge for revenge as well. ”Especially you. We owe it to her to get her out of here.” Steve said and while he didn’t think Kirk should be let off the hook so easily, there it was. He was man enough to lay down the hatchet. Atleast for the time being.

      Gather. Regroup. Kirk was right, to have waited for the group to return to this particular area. Kirk hasn’t used any of his Force Powers, yet: because that would attract other storm troopers. Enemies. Variants, and possibly against the cause. “Where’s the loud speaker, in case I want to send a message across the ship?” It might not be what the storm trooper was surmising.

      One.

      Rennic to the Command Station, would likely draw The Associate to the Command Station, as well. If Kirk has to play bait again? Well, it’s not like he hasn’t done that before? “Diana. Good to see that your safe. That You’re all safe” Kirk gave introductions to the twenty or so odd rebels against the Associate, “Welcome these men as if they were your own soldiers”

      Kirk responds, within a half-grin to Black Widow to the bad-ass comments. However, it’s Steve’s that gets his attention. Which is why he lost his grin, “…Where is she?” Meaning Danvers. His weakness. The only item that he could account for, that could physically and mentally, break him. Simply by being lost from his sight. All of this for him?

      Two

      Change of Plans. The Associate isn’t that far off, just steps away, right? However, Kirk closed the distance to Trevor, as well as to Diana. “…I was trying to warn you both of what was to come” He says, “…If it makes you feel any better? You can throw the first punch” Which even meant Diana, if she wished to. “….But we got to get Danvers out of here. Now” Then an idea formed. Rocket Raccoon. Animals don’t like high pitched sounds. So a grin formed again.

      Three

      “I’m going back in. Everyone is to cover this landing bay area here” Although Kirk was looking over his shoulder, towards that room in question: where the groaning was going on. It would be expected for Kirk to go in there, against The Associate. So he’s going to give her something else, instead. Then another stare back to Diana, ‘Trouble. In There. Someone’s Hurt’ He couldn’t know exactly whom, only that there was a distinct connection to Him. “Gather. Rennic direct him to the Command Station” The Associate would surely follow the Director.

      Kirk leaned a tad closer to Steve, put his arm on the mans shoulder, and stared towards the landing bay. It wasn’t the imperial shuttle that got Kirk’s attention. No. It was the hole that the storm trooper had informed him about BEFORE. Then he mouthed, ‘…Blast that hole’ For the Hangar Bay. ‘Leave Nothing Behind. Of This Hangar. Tear It Apart. Piece by Piece’ On Either Side of Said Hole. Why? Said hole in the Hangar Bay leads directly to The Command Station. Which is where everyone important will be located. Including: Kirk. Kirk hasn’t really disclosed his plans as of yet, other than being in Harms Way. AGAIN. ‘I’m going to find her’ Meaning Danvers. He mouths, ‘And you’re getting everyone out of here’ Undisclosed catch to mean Danvers as well. Kirk still has a plan; because he’s got a certain grin. ‘Trust me?’

      By now, they were a group of just over twenty, closer to thirty with these Stormtroopers and Amazons. Now adding Diana, Steve and Natasha too. Numbers didn’t win wars – tactics did. Maybe that was something The Associate had missed? She sure had the numbers but nothing else, it would seem.

      ”Just about any Control Room has a loudspeaker. Any room, really.” One of the Stormtroopers said. Which meant a message could be sent out from anywhere onboard. It was a large ship, after all. Even without the chaos going on currently, it still took a while to walk from the hangars to the bridge, etc.

      Diana was happy to hear those words from Kirk. ”Likewise.” He wasn’t the bad man she had thought that he was. If only she had realized that sooner. His order/request didn’t go unnoticed by her. And so she nodded with those words. ”They are considered allies and part of our group.” She repeated to show she had understood. Desperate times and all that. The truth was that many, if not all of them, were victims in this. That being said not all of the Stormtroopers were as… understanding as these ones.

      Steve noticed the change of his features. He loves Danvers, that much was clear. What wouldn’t he have done if his own princess was in danger? ”Middle of the ship? That was it, right?” He wanted to make sure he got all of that right. ”She went in to rescue you and the Amazons. Anyone trapped on here.”

      ”In the middle of the ship. Her exact location is unknown.” Black Widow explained. ”While we don’t have heat signatures, we’ve got the layout of the ship.” That was loose information, at best. ”There’s also the communicator pins. Here…”

      She gave Kirk something that looked like a smaller cube, along with a communicator pin. ”All you need to do is flick it open. It’ll give you a holographic display of the ship.” With the communicator pin and the holographic map, he should be able to find Danvers. ”The pin is set on our frequency.” A secured channel going out to them all.

      Diana listened to his words. It was evident she had made a mistake, due to being reckless and naive. A move that may end up having a high price. She hoped there would be a way to… repair this. Somehow. ”I was being stubborn. I should have trusted you sooner.” Diana admitted. One day, she would make it up to him. Somehow. A punch wouldn’t make it better nor change anything.

      The idea was for them to hold this position. Which was possible now, due to the gathered people and their various skill sets. Diana was the one to see his mouthing words, so she watched his lips closely to make sure she got it right. Someone was indeed hurting. Right now it was difficult to tell who it was. But they would know eventually. ”We will make sure the Director goes there.” To the Command Room.

      Steve was also paying attention to what Kirk was mouthing. He had to get his woman out of here. And they had to make sure there was a way out of this mess. Somehow. A nod was given to him then. Blasting that hole. That he could do. ”You got it.” He said, looking at the group Kirk had gathered so far.

      And it was now time for Kirk, to leave the safety of the group, to leave the safety of good numbers, and to take care of a few odd details. Danvers. Rocket. Find Them. Rennic. The Associate. To The Command Station. Get That Man out of Harms Way, in the Landing Bay.

      Kirk Nodded His Head.

      .

      .

      .

      And He’s Gone from their general vicinity. Where? To the Command Station. The Bridge. Which has been Kirk’s Usual Prison, since he’s met with The Associate. This is her Higher Ground. This is Her Controlled Turf. Everything Begins and Ends Here.

      .

      However? The next pieces on the board, depend on the pieces within The Bridge.

      So? Kirk intends to utilize certain Force Powers to hopefully, protect himself.

      Not? Not that they’ve ever truly worked against The Associate.

      Not? Not that they’ll be Removed From Him, AGAIN…

      Those Force Powers, are?

      Force Immunity…

      Force Disarm – To send those with weapons, out of their grasp and against the wall.

      Force REND – To crush those weapons into ashes.

      Force Slow/Exhaustion – To slow aka deaden their movements against Him.

      .

      “The Associate and Rennic are coming here for a private meeting” Kirk advises, “…You may witness this event at your own risk? But I advise you all to leave this room while you still can breathe”

      .

      .

      If those actions worked? If they worked? Kirk would be free to move onto the next agenda. What was that? Flipping the switch for the loud speaker, which would only be the sound of high pitched static for a period of ten seconds. Enough? Maybe enough to clue in a Raccoon, that something was wrong? OR: maybe by the fact, that the high pitched static was more along the signs of an, SOS and Landing Bay. Maybe, they’d get the hint? Maybe? Hopefully….

      .

      .

      If allowed? Kirk used one of the men at the controls, asked them rather nicely, if they decided to stay behind, “…Inform the occupants within this ship that they have a New Leader of this Vessel” Maybe, that soldier would speak verbatim all of Kirk’s Words, “If there are those who have objections to this matter? They are to report to the Command Station within One Minute of the message”

      .

      .

      What?

      If any of those actions?

      Would actually occur?

      Or has The Associate accounted for these as well?

      .

      .

      Kirk has a Small.

      A very…Very Small Window to Achieve His Results…

      No Longer In the storm trooper attire…

      Diana, Steve and Natasha would be able to carry out their duties here in the landing bay, along with the gathering of opposing Stormtroopers and Red Shirts that weren’t as loyal to The Associate as the others. Even the Amazons were here to help them out. There was also the matter of one ally being at the mercy of The Associate. A situation that was delicate at best. Roles and tasks had been assigned. And so they got to working.

      ————

      Team Kirk

      The way to the Command Stations/Bridge was one that was met with opposition and resistance. The bulk of the so called army was mostly located in the middle of the ship by now. It would seem as if a silent order had gone out – to find Dr. Alexandra Danvers. Their intentions with Rocket Raccoon remained a mystery. It was as if they didn’t know of the raccoon.

      Despite being greater in number, the Stormtroopers that stood in Kirk’s way had no chance against the Force powers he had at his disposal. They may be an army but they didn’t seem to have any training in terms of unification or tactics. Not truly.

      The ones that remain within said room were now at the mercy of Kirk. They were left with the choice of remaining or staying. Some took the high road and left the room, whereas others remained. Kirk was the one with the powers, after all. ”Private meeting. Roger that.” One of the Stormtroopers said, now without weapons.

      Kirk’s message would now be spoken throughout the entire ship, thanks to one of the people at the controls. One that would reach each and every individual onboard the Star Destroyer.

      Would they take the bait or just some of them? Any at all? It would remain to be seen.

      ————————–

      Team Danvers

      The static was not only heard by Rocket Racoon but also via the speakers all over. But Rocket was the one hearing the most of it. ”Agh! That sound! Get it out of my head! I’ll take annoying elevator music over this ANY DAY!”

      ”It’s not static. It’s a message.” An SOS one. It was a clue, a hint. ”Someone got to the Command Room.” Someone was helping them. And soon enough, there would be more of a message.

      One Minute. 60 Seconds. And, technically? This ship Will Be His. No Sign. No Sign of The Associate. Nor, of Rennic. Pacing. And Dependent on Others for certain aspects of His Plan to Work. It Has To Work. The Less readable tactics that he displays in Here. Will bring in The More Desirable Ones from out there. Honestly, Kirk’s moves will begin, when they get here.

      Team Natasha, Diana and Steve

      The message had reached the landing bay. The person that was within that room needed their aid. By now, Black Widow had probably figured out who said person was. One that was left behind. But that left one question – who was in there with him?

      ”We should help the hostage.” Diana suggested to the other two. The Stormtroopers and Amazons could provide cover fire for them.

      ”Proceed with cation.” Widow looked at Steve and Diana. And with that, they proceeded to where the groaning came from.

      ————

      The Associate, Diana, Steve, Natasha and Peter Quill

      Once the trio entered, they would be met by none othet than The Associate herself. And Star-Lord. On the floor. He wasn’t moving and he was bloodied and bruised. There was no way of telling if he was dead or alive.

      Black Widow and Steve aimed their respective weapons at The Associate. It was three versus one. But was that enough?

      ”Fire that shot, Black Widow. For it’ll be your last.” The Associate glared at her, then to Steve. ”The same goes for you, Legendary Soldier.”

      Diana hadn’t drawn her weapons just yet, looking at Natasha and Steve, before her gaze went to The Associate. ”Is the man still alive?”

      The Associate smirked. ”Oh, I don’t know… are you alive, Quill?” Putting her boot upon his throat, resulting in nothing bu gurgling sounds. ”Halleluja, there’s life in him still!”

      ”We can end her now.” Natasha unclenched and clenched her fist as she watched the scene unfold.

      ”I find your entire presence ironic, Black Widow.” Oh noes. ”What does a former spy and assasin know of LOYALTY?”

      ”Nothing wrong with being a spy.” Steve said, his shotgun aimed at The Associate.

      ”… says the other spy.” The Associate countered.

      By now, she removed the boot from Star-Lord’s throat. He would need medical aid for a long time to come, most likely. ”You heard the message, Diana. I’m requested elsewhere.” She let that sink in. ”You refuse to let me attend that and this guy dies.”

      Diana had a feeling they could end her, here and now. But that was what they all thought, right? The decision was hanging in the air.

      ”Before you let these two have their go at me, maybe I should let you know the error in your entire mission? Please, I insist.” Pointing at each and every one of them. ”Danvers and Kirk got you all together, yet you’re not enough. You’ll never be enough. Not even you, Diana.” Smiling oh-so widely. ”The one you needed the most, is not here.” She was very confident in that statement. ”Now, I have a meeting to attend to.”

      With speed that was unlike anything they had seen, she sent one kick to Black Widow’s abdoment, then the second after one to Steve, sending them flying into one wall each. Diana was grabbed and tossed into the wall behind The Associate. The move had happened so fast they had no chance of reacting. Not even Diana.

      The Associate stepped outside and motioned for those still loyal to her. ”Cease your fire. But make sure this trouble trio remains where they are.” Before she was on her way to the Command Room.

      It was also safe to say Director Krennic was left without options and was on his way to there as well.

      —————————–

      Team Danvers

      Danvers was on her way to the Command Room with Rocket. Troops had started to dwindle down. Either by escaping or by just fleeing. She was most curious to see who had made their way to the Command Room/Bridge.

      Inside of The Command Room: Kirk witnessed all of that carnage going on within that Landing Bay room. Diana: down. Trevor: down. Widow: down. Star-Lord: Near-death.

      For whatever time that Kirk might have left? Kirk maneuvered the weapons, inside of the Landing BAYS, to aim for The Walkways and The Ceiling. Kirk was using, simple, basic tactics. Because this ship is all new to him.

      “Thank you for your assistance” To the soldiers who decided to stay behind. “However, you’re needed elsewhere” Force Persuasion would be utilized to get the men out of harms way. Even if, they aren’t specifically on his side. Where were they sent to? We’ll find out, won’t we?

      .

      Kirks next step was the Navigation Area for the Massive Ship. And he took a rather long, substantial breath, while locking the controls to begin to SWERVE the ship, off to the right. So that it’ll be a SLOW DISCOVERY, just after the meeting commences.

      .

      The View-screen, however, was also attended to. Switched: OFF. Flying: Blind. Whatever weapons lined the tops of the walls, including surveillance, had long since been handled with FORCE REND, since his arrival into the Command Station. Which meant that The Associate, from an electronic point of view: has likely, not witnessed his maneuvers in here regarding Navigation, regarding Weapons.

      .

      Weapons weren’t always visible. Especially when Flying Blind. Especially if one, such as Kirk: were to tamper with the general heat censors for the Engine Room. Especially if on, such as Kirk: were to send to an order down to destabilize the hyper-drive system. It could bring the mass of engineering to a complete halt? It could cause the workers and the storm troopers and the death troopers to rush for the Engine Room, to keep their own lives in-tact. Diversion…

      Hysteria…Over-ride, was used by Kirk, within that Command Station, to preserve the order for the hyper-drive system and the Engines that Power this Heap of Crap into Space…

      .

      Already, the Mighty Ship was beginning to tilt to the Right: which meant that at a certain point? The Gravity Stabilizers would be put a test. Surely, it was going to be a very bad idea: for a certain someone in the Command Station, to FRY said Gravity Stabilizers for the entire ship. Surely, it would be noticed, within five minutes? Ten minutes? OF the Big Meeting…

      Welcome to Kirk’s Show…

      Widow, Diana and Steve were indeed down for the moment and Star-Lord was near death. He would need medical aid quickly. Even then, it was no guarantee that he would survive. And should he survive, he wouldn’t be able to fight for a while until his injuries had healed. The trio got to their feet after a moment, however. Widow and Steve took the worst hits. Diana was more durable, yet had been sent flying.

      ”The charges?” Widow asked, looking at Steve.

      ”I got that covered.” He looked at both women. ”While you two were talking, I got the others to work. Incase something happened.” Meaning the other allies they had here, had gathered the weapons needed for such.

      ”It will create a distraction. Once it explodes, we can fight back.” Diana looked at them.

      Which was a good idea. The Stromtroopers had gathered in numbers now and were all lobbing thermal detonators down that hole! It would be one helluva blast!

      —————————

      Team Kirk

      Force Persuade worked like a charm on those who had remained within the Command Room. ”Yes, sir! We’re needed elsewhere!” They all said in unison and was on their way out of the Command Room. They didn’t seem to have any set goal in mind. Along one of the corridors, they even passed Danvers and Rocket, yet Force Persuasion was still in play and so they paid them no mind.

      His experience in flyign spaceships would give him an extra advantage in this scenario. While it wasn’t the same as The Enterprise, the theory could still be applied to even a Star Destroyer. At first, it was hardly noticeable as he swerved the ship to the right. But the more it was swerved, the more noticeable it got.

      The Associate was kept in the dark, technically speaking. So she had no idea what Kirk was actually doing right now. Was she giving up? Or was she merely allowing this to happen? Again, a question that remained unanswered.

      By now the gravity stabilizers were definitely put to the test. And right on time as well, as the requested individuals would now be in the Command Room. Krennic and The Associate. Kirk’s plan was, as of yet, successful. He had lured them both in, although judging by the looks they gave eachother, they were not pleased with eachother.

      ”Here we are.” The Associate shrugged as she looked at Kirk.

      ”I could have been off this ship if it weren’t for you!” Krennic growled at The Associate.

      ”Is that so? What took you so long?” She glanced at Krennic. ”We’re out of toilet paper again, aren’t we.”

      ”I will not stand for this insolence!” Oh boy…

      —————————————-

      Team Danvers

      Last but not least, Danvers and Rocket walked through that door. First sight to catch her eye was The Associate. Oh how she wanted to end that THING! But she needed answers, first.

      Then there was another man in white that she hadn’t seen before. The Director was a new face, although she didn’t say or ask anything in regards to who he was.

      Then, finally. She saw him. Her guy. Her eyes widened. ”Jim!” She exclaimed. There he was – her guy. Words couldn’t explain how happy she was to see him again. Rushed up and gave him the tightest hug ever!

      Appearances are everything, especially within a show-down. Weapons aren’t always visible. Tactics are shrouded within the impossible. Ideas are the lights within the skies, that determine just who the winners and the losers are, AFTER The War. Fire-Works. Celebrations…

      .

      Kirk, also, it should be noted. Prior to, The Pairs, Arrival…

      1. FRIED the controls for the Navigation Panel. Rendering Them Useless.

      2. FRIED the controls for the View-screen Panel. Rendering that item useless as well. Flying Blind. The Big Oaf of A ship, is now, Flying Blind, and tilting to the Right, ever so delicately: out of control…

      .

      Once, The Pair Arrived: Kirk turned to face them within stoic features. “…Rennic? You want untainted Death Troopers? I can provide them safety from this Associate here” Kirk indicates the Associate within a tilt of his head…..

      .

      “…Associate?” Kirk grins at the woman, “…You wanted a show? Something?” He says, “That you’ll never forget: Am I right or wrong?” Preparing, to get out of here! Almost! Thirty more seconds, is all that Kirk will need to escape………….Side. Side. To that Right Side. Slow….

      And…

      Then….

      And…..

      Then….

      The unexpected occurs with Danvers and Rocket appearing within the doorway to the Command Station! He didn’t expect this! They shouldn’t be here! Stark confusion riddles across his face! She should have gone back to the landing bay, much like Rocket! The Hug, however: was his only true solace, after their separation. Clear Your Head, Kirk! You can turn this around! Turn it!

      Around…..

      Controls fried for the view-screen and navigation controls. The ship was indeed flying blind. But Kirk knew what he was doing. At this point in time – he was in control. His crew was gathering and they were gaining a hold in the hangar bays as well. Victory seemed to be closing in, for the good guys.

      Krennic looked at Kirk as he offered that. ”All she ever touches is tainted. She’s a sick and twisted woman.” He grunted.

      ”Because you are a saint yourself, Director.”

      ”Anything as long as I don’t have to deal with that woman.” Getting himself and his Death Troopers was a high priority for him.

      The Associate smirked with Kirks words. ”I’ve witnessed it all.” Glancing to Krennic and then Danvers who had appeared. ”A show, I’ve been given. But this isn’t over.” What did she even mean by that. ”Not yet.”

      Danvers held onto that hug for as long as she could, taking in the look of his face. He was here. Finally. As was she. Happiness filled her body. Until SHE spoke. Which made her turn around and glare at the woman. ”It’s gone on for too long.”

      ”You’re in deep shit, lady.” Rocket nudged The Associates leg. Which resulted in a questioning look given by The Associate.

      ——————————-

      Diana, Steve and Natasha

      The destruction of the landing bays were underway. By the trio, Stormtroopers, Red Shirts and Amazons. Quit the mix of various people here. But there was still the matter of Star-Lord. He was losing time and fast. Diana and Steve were in the fight, as was Natasha. But she also kept an eye on Star-Lord.

      ”Ll— leave…. me…” He coughed, blood coming out of his mouth. ”Wi—-ll… slow… down…”

      ”We’re not leaving you behind, Quill.” Widow reassured, although they would have to move him out of here. And it would have to be done fast. It wasn’t down to her, however. So she contacted Kirk via his pin.

      ”Cap? Black Widow here.” Formal introduction of sorts. ”Star-Lord is in a really bad shape. Unless he’s moved off the ship, he won’t make it.” Blunt, too. ”I can get some of the troopers onto a shuttle, back to the USS Franklin.” It could be done. Would it save his life? Possibly. Maybe. ”It’s your call, Cap.”

      ———————————–

      The Associate just smiled. And it just grew as it was heard all over. ”All of these deaths could have been prevented, you know.” Shook her head slowly. ”Tsk, tsk.”

      “No. Not Yet” Kirk calmly explained, while holding his right arm to the middle curve of her back, just enough to remind Danvers, how delicate that this situation is that they’re both involved within. “…However, you’re time for running the show, has come to its final conclusion”

      Tilt…

      Right…

      Tilt….

      Right…

      Tilt…

      “Rennic. Take your available soldiers and leave. Now” Available: meaning that those that won’t be killed when the engine room starts to FRY this ship to hell and back.

      .

      Kirk ignored The Associates words, if only to hear from Widow that, Star-Lord. Thee Star-Lord was in trouble? Of Dying? That’s the guy who was in that Landing Bay Room! Via the pin, Kirk responded, “…Get as many as you can fit on-board. Go for repeat pickups, if at all possible” Kirk continues his reply, “…There will be extras and unexpected arrivals” Meaning Rennic. Meaning those Death Troopers: it was going to be one of helluva of a mixed bag for the USS-Franklin. Yet Kirk doesn’t want that ship, too overloaded, either….

      .

      True to form, The Associate was glorifying in the deaths of his men. And? Unlike the other times, Kirk is actually beginning to believe that he’s got the upper-hand-here. “You’ll need a parting gift for your show” Kirk advised The Associate, and finally used: Doppelganger.

      Resulting in two events. Kirk disappeared, right along with Danvers and Rocket back to the Landing Bay. The odd ship, Milano, may not have been too hard to distinguish, correct? If they were successful? Kirk, Danvers and Rocket got back on-board that ship….but it’s far from over.

      Just BEFORE, Kirk disappeared with the the new pair? Kirk’s Doppelganger, which is Kirk, and can draw from Kirks power, utilized: Kinetite. Not ONLY within the entire room, which was basically creating another solid object around the room. But Kinetite, again, around the woman. The Associate. Which, hopefully, if allowed? Would trap The Associate into the Kinetites Trap. TRAP. Hopefully!? She was not Forced Crushed, nor Force Blasted, during her possible interments. If only, for the Doppelganger, to advise. “…He wanted you in Perfect Health, before The Other Grand Show Begins”

      Kirk, Danvers, Rocket, Director Krennic and The Associate

      Feeling his hand upon her back was reassurance and sent a number of positive feelings coursing through her body. Even a smile was given then. The time of The Associate was closing in. Yet there would be tasks to solve even after the possible defeat of this enemy. Many things had been left unsaid and unsolved. Not that she would trust this woman any but still… much would remain a myster, even after the defeat of The Associate. Should that happen today.

      Krennic nodded with those words. ”It will be done.” And with that, he would assemble his Death Troopers as instructed.

      ”You’re all making a mistake.” The Associate warned. Whatever that warning might be. Maybe indirectly hinting at Krennic being the bad guy and she… another bad guy? Either way, it was up to Kirk to run the show now.

      ————————————-

      Diana, Steve and Natasha

      ”You got it, Cap.” Widow responded. Multiple/repeat pick-ups would ensue from now on. There were enough Imperial Shuttles for them to use for this task. ”Guys, we’re moving out. Expect a lot of guests, too!” She called out to Steve and Diana.

      People were now boarding the available Imperial Shuttles, yet the Milano was left for Kirk, Danvers and Rocket to use. Star-Lord was brought onto one of the Imperial Shuttles, along with Black Widow. Diana and Steve were also on that one. Various Red Shirts, Amazons and Stormtroopers also boarded whatever spacecraft was available.

      Pick-ups on repeat would ensue once Star-Lord and the other survivors had been dropped off on the USS Franklin. Bones would have a field day with this.

      The Milano, was standing there – all ready for take-off. All she needed was a start-up and it would be ready to fly. It would be safe to assume that Danvers, Kirk and Rocket were inside the ship. Even Rocket was able to fly the Milano, so it shouldn’t be too difficult.

      ———————————-

      The Associate

      She was caught in the Kinetite power and looked at the Doppelgänger. He mentioned perfect health. ”Who said I’m even alive? I might already be dead?” The Associate stated. They knew so little about her. What she was.

      New Allies Forged.

      Tentative Allies Created.

      With Kirk, Rocket and The Danvers on the Milano.

      Kirk was allowing Rocket to fly this thing. Of course, Kirk isn’t very familiar with this ships weapons, either? So, with a slither over near to Rocket, (in the pilots seat), Kirk asks, “…Can this ship, take that Destroyer out of existence?” But then Kirk remembered his Discord weapon and got an idea, thus his grin widened, “…What if we add ethereal bullets to the equation?” Since, the weapon can adjust to Kirk, then all he’d need is a suitable mounting location for the weapon. Since, it’s directed by The User, yes? Portal exterior Weapon, gotta try, right?

      .

      Then Kirk grinned over the Raccoons shoulder over to Danvers. They’d made it! But almost! They’re all not in the clear yet! Yet…

      .

      The Doppelganger, however, never replied to The Associate. He would be the standing guard, to watch over Kirks Prey, until….the ship would explode. But when would that be? When was the Landing Bay Hole charges lit? That ship, is dying soon……….

      .

      Rocket got the ship running, by pressing buttons and flipping switches. ”You bet! It packs a damn punch if need be. Might take a few tries is all. I keep telling Quill to get bigger and badder ones but noooooo!” Oh dear. He really did have a short fuse, it would seem. ”Add whatever you want. As long as we blow it to pieces.” Ethereal bullets might just do the trick. ”Just focus on getting it out of the sky and I’ll fly this bird!”

      They had made it. Almost. New alliances had been made. Some floating, others more solid. People had stuck together, joining together in this fight. So she smiled at Kirk, even giving him a wink.

      ————————————–

      Pick-ups happened, back and forth. Soon enough, those charges would start go off. One by one in the landing bay holes. That alone would cause some structural damage to the Star Destroyer.

      ———————————-

      ”You do realize I gain the abilities of the one I pose, as?” In this time-line, Danvers might have learned Doppelgänger. ”How do you even know I’m the original? There could be ten of me for all you know.” Either she was telling the truth. Or just spinning more lies.

      Decisions. Decisions.

      Plans. Plans.

      Kirk transformed his Discord Weapon, into this…

      Which would mount itself onto the Milano,

      to make for a perfect firing range directly to the Destroyer!

      Kirk’s made some Resolutions.

      Instantly, that new weapon was firing those Ethereal Bullets!

      Directly to the embattled Star Destroyer!

      Would it make a difference?

      ………………………………………..

      Kirk gave Danvers, something of a grin in return.

      Words cannot express: however, how much she’s saved him today…

      And maybe, we can say that this battle is nearly over?

      …………………………………………………………………………………..

      But what of the one with The Associate and the Doppelganger?

      To which the Doppelganger responded….

      “Then if we have to remove every star destroyer in the sky to get at you? We’ll do So”

      “We’ll do whatever it takes to wipe your kind from existence”

      …..

      And then perhaps, the screens might have gone blank for: The Pair?

      One Doppelganger Gone, right?

      Worth it though…..

      Another War Won, but for how long?

      That was the Question…

      The newly transformed Discord would prove most effective against anything standing in its way. Even with shields up, nothing would be able to stop the ethereal bullets. There was a reason both Strife and Discord were extremely powerful weapons.

      The Star Destroyer was taking heavy and critical damage now. It wouldn’t be long now until it would be out of orbit, turned into space dust. It would seem as if their victory was at hand.

      ——————————————–

      Seeing him grin resulted in a smile of her own. They were winning. Finally. The hold of The Associate would be over and they could return to doing what they were doing before all of this. He had saved her, she would never try and downplay that. Yte – maybe she saved him too? Right now she didn’t know in what way or how.

      She was just happy.

      To be by his side.

      Once more.

      ————————————–

      The Associate seemed to have gone into a calmer state, despite her imminent demise being at hand. Her kind? Every Star Destroyer in the sky? She couldn’t help but smile. The Associate even turned in a direction that made her look directly at Kirk and Danvers. A feat that may have appeared small, yet would be impossible to carry out. Yet there she was – as if staring directly at them.

      ”I assure you, Captain…Doctor…” That smile upon her face. ”There’s no one quite… like… me…” Before the screens went black and the Star Destroyer being blown into pieces.
