Here's Ch 92-Part 2-K&K
"Knock off the crap, Katherine! We've scrapped those new 'SS' inspired uniforms so you can stay in whatever you're wearing underneath that tunic blazer. This is serious, Angel! Two or three of the prisoners at 'Seto Kaiba's' 3WA penal block have up and vanished into thin air! Dr. Q is ecstatic. He says this proves that he can fire up the 'Varrins' now. We've since confirmed that those prisoners are back on their homeworlds. Given the situation, we have jointly agreed to drop all charges against all criminals except for the Terrans like Warp and Slade. "Black Ghost' and Johnny Berringer stay too. If you get Khan, we'll add him to the batch and release his crews. Tell Emma, Arkton, Ellen and Legato that they and the 'Queen's' crew will all receive a full pardon and the thanks of the 'UG', 'GC', 3WA, 'Starfleet' and the 'ISSP'. In addition, Legato and Arkton have been accepted by the 3WA Academy. Your two TC Trainees (Kome and Marlene) are hereby promoted to 'ensign'. Yuri is promoted to the rank of Lt Commander/Acting Commodore. The chiefs (Don and Anton) have been promoted to Commodore. For the moment, you have been promoted to Commodore JG (Junior Grade) but there is a rumor that you will soon be a Sub-Unit Chief as well as a Vice Admiral, my dear. We are all quite proud of you and your cadre. Now as to your otherquestion-we cannot issue a full pardon to Captain Solo per your request. We cannot because not only has Captain Solo never violated any of our 'UG' or 3WA laws (he shot at you in error you'll recall), he was a hero of the 'Old Republic rebellion' at 'Alderaan' as well as the 'Clone Wars'. I know him quite well, Katie and unfortunately for you, he is already engaged to Princess Leia Organa, the 'UG' senatorial ambassador of both 'Alderaan' and 'Yokov'. OK, I hope your temper has improved somewhat, Katie, because we have to drop a bombshell on you! (Kei immediately began to fume inwardly! Imagine! Engaged to a senator no less and yet he 'conveniently' forgets to mention it! That rotten, no good, dirty, lowdown, lousy, good for nothing-- Kei finally came back to the matter at hand when Gooley yelled at her a few times!) Katie! Are you listening to me?" he roared.
"Hai sir, I heard you. You said something about we were probably gonna get stuck with the 'Mooney' kids! Dr Q! Are you still there?" she demanded hotly. "Hai, Kei. I am still here and I must apologize for the inconvenience, my dear." he said. "Inconvenience! You call getting stuck with five kids from the Terra of 300 years ago a Kami shimatta inconvenience! It's more like a bloody Fxxxing nightmare! Oro did you screw up this time?" yelled the redhead. "It's not my fault, Kei! Ka-Mi! Now I sound like you! Calm down. I do have a solution. After the Doctors return their passengers to their respective times and spaces, one or both of them will return to AD 2251 Furool City and ferry Miss Serena and her four tomos back to 20th Century Terra. However, you'll have to keep the kids on the 'Angel' in the meantime." explained the 3WA scientist.
"Why can't somebody else be saddled with 'em instead? Anyway, ain't we comin' home as soon as you fix that blasted 'Kronos Project' you're working on?" asked Kei. "First, we don't want to run the risk of moving them to an unstable planetary environment like 'Shimougou'. Remember, my dear, 'Shimougou's' atmosphere is richer and rarer than Terra's. Now as to where exactly your fleet will be going. Well---" Dr. Cueball trailed off and Gooley came to his rescue. "Khan must be transported to 'Alderaan' with all possible speed and we need the best personnel we have to watch over him. That's where you come in. In just 12 more hours, the 'Varrins' (the 'Kronos' generator) will be online. At that time, some, most or indeed, maybe even all of your passengers will start to disappear from your vessels and rematerialize at their own places and in their own times. By the way, Katie, have you guys apprehended Khan yet? Well?" asked Andre Francis Gooley.
"Nai, there's been no word from Emma on 'Halcyon' as of yet, sir. The 'Queen' and her two shuttles, the 'Sol' and the 'Starcusher' are all in position to grab him just as soon as he jumps out of hyperspace. We'll keep you posted, sir." replied Kei. "Fine, katie. Incidentally, just where the Hell is your bridge crew? All I can see is Mugghi and Nammo there with you. Katie?" he asked. Gooley was the only person who dared to use that name for Kei! Lee Chan had tried it out on her as a joke six months ago and had gotten his hair singed by Yuri's lasersword wielded by Kei! "Onegai don't call me that again, sir. As to your question- they've all got this afternoon off. Conan and the girls are on the holodeck beach program and I imagine that Miroku has a 'sneak peek' attack planned too. They needed some R&R, sir and in light of these latest developments, I'm glad that I gave them my permission because it sure looks like we ain't gonna be having any 'fun in the sun' for a long while now! 'Alderaan' is at least another two weeks' voyage from here. But sirs, you want us to transport a dangerous character like Khan all the way across the better part of three galaxies with kids on board? Will it be safe for them? No offense to any of our guests, sirs, but none of them are really fighters now, are they?" observed the hotheaded tro-con.
"Nai, Kat-- er Kei which is why 'Starfleet' has dispatched the 'USS Coriander' to accompany your flotilla to 'Alderaan'. Oh, before I forget- please tell Mr Solo and Mr Black not to be concerned about their ships. Both the 'Bebop' and the 'Millenium Falcon' have been 'tractored' (towed) to our outpost at 'Seto Kaiba' where they can reclaim them at their convenience after the mission has been completed. Well, those are your orders, Vice Admiral. Any questions?" asked Gooley.
"We'll need supplies first and we need to break out of this 'time loop' thing before we can do any of that stuff, sir." replied Kei. "We'll alert the 'Kaguran' authorities to have your supplies ready for pickup. Just vidfax us a list of your needs and we'll relay it to 'Kagura'. Gomen Kei, but I have to ask- How big is your casualty count? Oro I mean is 'who's in sick bay at the moment'?" asked Garner.
"Nobody's in sick bay, Charlie! One 'walking wounded', though. Princess Aelita from the virtual world of 'Lyoko' broke her tibia (leg bone) when she transported aboard from AD 2004 Terra with her tomos. One of 'em- Odd- landed on her leg- hard- during the rematerialization. Jeremy and Ulrich dropped on top of Odd and their added weight snapped her leg. We already had their classmaate, Yumi, onboard. She'd been zapped onto the 'Starcrusher' while Berringer was still in possession of it. Aelita'll be OK in another day or so. Wounds heal quickly in the 'Antares' system for some strange reason. Sango recovered within a week when she broke her leg on 'Kagura'. Actually the big hanyou (Inu Yasha) broke it for her during our football game. On to other news now. Mr Solo has apparently recovered enough to command the 'Starcrusher' and we gave him Zoe as a navigator. Jett's downstairs playing 'Duel Monsters' with Charlie Gunn and he's teaching 'Shogi' (an ancient form of Terran Japanese chess) to anyone who wants to learn it. (Then Gooley's closing words to Kei finally sunk in!) Vice Admiral? Did Andre really say Vice Admiral? Me? I don't understand, Charlie." replied a flabbergasted 3WA commander.
"It's still 'Mister' Gooley and 'Mister' Garner, Kei! However, to answer your question- hai, your promotion just came through 'CC' here at HQ so it is now official. You have just become the very youngest Vice Admiral in the entire history of the 3WA and the 'UG'! Hell, you're probably even younger than the ones in 'GC', 'Starfleet' and the 'ISSP'! And another thing, Keiterran! I do not want to hear of your pushing the speed limit of Warp ten up to Warp twelve and beyond any more! Those speed parameters are in place for a reason, dammit! I know that you had Mugghi and Nammo remove the 'governors' from the warp drive so you could go rocketing all over the galaxy! That means we won't expect to see you at 'Alderaan' for at least three more weeks! Well, that's just about all that we have to tell you, Kei. Be sure you advise us when you have Khan under lock and key, won't you? The 'Coriander' will place a skeleton crew on the 'Botany Bay' and one of their shuttles will escort the 'Bay' and its crew (minus Khan of course!) to our base on 'Seto Kaiba'. The 'Coriander' will escort the 'Angel' and whatever ships are left to 'Alderaan' where Khan will be turned over to 'Starfleet Command' to stand trial. Now you can take off that shimatta blazer tunic thing. You must be suffocating in it." said Garner. "You, er, ARE wearing something underneath it, aren't you, Kei?" demanded Gooley anxiously. "Hai, sir. My sweats. (She lost no time in complying with the TSC's orders.) Anything else, sirs?" she asked.
