I haven't drawn anything Star Trek in a while. Welp looks like I have finally drawn something Star Trek! I am actually really proud of this one! Yea Sklonder is NOT a huge fan of wearing Voyager uniforms. He prefers his classic uniform like what Captain Kirk wears. Well there's gotta be reasons to why the holographic medical Doctor wanted to change Sklonder's uniform. Probably to keep up to date even though Sklonder doesn't really approves of it. Looks like im gonna have to tell a story here eh!? WELL HERE YOOOUUU GO!
It has been a long journey in Space. Voyager was resting by a nearby star system. In the captains quarters, Janeway was laying down on the couch and was resting. It has been a long day after dealing with some Klingon problems. Janeway's rest didn't last long as Neelix called for her. "Captain Janeway! This is Neelix!"
Janeway wakes up. She was still half asleep though and she pressed her combadge. "Yes mr. Neelix?"
Janeway spoke in a tired tone. Neelix thought maybe he had disturbed her. "Oh did I disturb you captain?"
Neelix asked her. "No no...you didn't Neelix. What's up?"
Janeway asked him. Neelix wanted her in the mess hall. "Captain, may I speak to you down here please? I rather tell you something face to face."
Neelix asked her. Janeway stretched a bit and accepted. "Yes im on my way."
Janeway ended the communication and started to head down to the mess hall. She eventually arrived and walked to Neelix. "Ok Neelix. What is it that you want?"
Janeway asked him with a small smirk on her face. Neelix looked at Janeway and was happy to see her. "Oh good! Because I wanted to ask you something. Do you think we will find another Federation ship in this area? I mean...."
Neelix didn't know what else to say. Janeway wasn't sure. "Im not sure if we will find another Federation ship out here Neelix. We are pretty far away from Earth and I don't think we will......"
Before Janeway could finish, Chakotay interrupted and called her to the bridge. "Captain you need to be on the bridge immediately! There's something that you may like to see."
Chakotay tolled Janeway in a somewhat excited and scared tone. "On my way. We'll talk more about this later alright Neelix?"
Neelix agreed. So Janeway started to head for the bridge. She arrived and looked at the Viewscreen and was shocked to see what she saw. "Harry, is that a federation ship I see?"
She asked him curiously. Harry confirmed that it was a Federation ship. "Yes captain! I believe so!"
Harry tolled her. This raised excitements. "How did you get out here this far?"
She asked the ship. However the excitements soon started to turn into worries very quickly as they noticed quickly that the ship was in flames and was critically damaged. It was at a drift. "What the hell? The ship from what it looks like, had a massive attack and barely escaped. What the hell happened?"
Janeway was puzzled as to how the ship got damaged. She quickly noticed the ship's name right away as it turned back around. "NCC - 90715-T U.S.S Toklarnius. That's a name I never heard of before. The ship is not any Federation ship I have ever seen before. Tuvok scan for survivors."
Tuvok did just that. There is only one survivor and the life signs where fading. "Captain, I got one life sign and it's fading. They could be injured."
Janeway agreed and decided to go over there. "Tuvok, Chakotay, your with me."
All three of them then started heading to the teleporter room and they eventually went to the USS Toklarnius. When they arrived, there was debris and broken parts all over the place. The alarms where still going off. They used lights to search around the debris. As they where searching, most of the crew where dead. However as Janeway ventured further, eventually making it to the bridge, she saw something yellow. She walks over to it and starts taking the debris off and there was a Vulcan severely injured. He was unconscious. Janeway called for Tuvok and Chakotay and they came quickly, seeing the injured Vulcan. She uses a tricorder to scan him. "Theres a Vulcan under here. Hes critically injured and his life signs are fading! We need to take him to sickbay."
Janeway tolled them both and suddenly, the ship started creaking and started making strange sounds. The core was going to breach. Janeway used her combadge to tell Voyager to get them out of there. "Transporter room, this is the captain! We have an injured Vulcan and the warp core is going to breach! Beam us directly to sickbay and get us out of here!"
Soon the transporters activated and Voyager made a retreat and the Toklarnius blew up. Leaving nothing now but ship debris. They all made it back to sickbay safely. They have placed the Vulcan on the medical bed. The Doctor wanted to know what happened. "What happened!?"
He asked Janeway and he scans the Vulcan. Janeway tries to explain. "There was another Federation ship. Only to realize that it was critically damaged. All the crew were dead except for the Vulcan. He was under some debris and saw that he was severely wounded. Then the core breached. I don't know how the ship got like that but what I do know is that it must of went through a huge battle in order to get like that."
Janeway explained what she could and the Doctor understood. There was a gash wound on Sklonder's head and some broken bones. This was going to take time for the Doctor to heal him. "Captain, this is going to take some time. I will let you know what goes on."
Janeway understood and both Janeway, Tuvok and Chakotay left the Doctor for him to do his work. A day past and the Doctor was done. He tolled Janeway, Tuvok and Chakotay to come back. They did and the Doctor woke the Vulcan up. The Vulcan slowly opens his eyes and starts to get up but the Doctor quickly tolled him to sit up slowly. "I advise you sit up slowly. I have healed some of your wounds but there where some I couldn't fix. Those will have to heal on there own."
The Doctor tolled the Vulcan. The Vulcan just looked at him with no response but did what he said. Janeway wanted to introduce herself. "I am captain Kathryn Janeway of the starship USS Voyager. We have saved you from the ship you where in."
The Vulcan looks at Janeway but then again, no response. Janeway looked at Tuvok like why isn't he speaking. Tuvok looked at Janeway then at Sklonder. He started to speak. "I am Tuvok. This is Chakotay and that there is the Doctor. May we know your name please?"
Tuvok tells the Vulcan and the Vulcan looked at him. He started to FINALLY speak. "Sklonder Gelfess Hendross. I am a Commander and I am Captain of the ship USS Toklarnius. May I ask where my ship is?"
Sklonder asked Janeway. Janeway didn't like to tell him the bad news but she had to. "Captain....I am VERY sorry but....your ship blew up from a warp core breach. There was no time to fix the problem. You would of died if we tried fixing the core."
Janeway explains. Sklonder understood. "I see. Voyager.....I have heard some things about this ship. However not very much since I did not have time to learn much about it in the Starfleet Academy. I know little about this ship. I only know more on the Enterprise."
Sklonder tolled Janeway in a serious tone. This kind of wondered why Sklonder was wearing those old classic uniforms. "Ah I see. Well then...looks like your going to be with us for a while."
Sklonder didn't approve to that idea as he wanted to be in his ship instead with his crew but knowing that everyone on that ship is dead, makes him feel like he had no other choice. He looked down and also noticed that he was no longer wearing his uniform and now he was wearing the Voyager uniforms. This made Sklonder rather uncomfortable and Tuvok noticed strait away. "I can see that you are rather uncomfortable with the uniform."
He tolled Sklonder. "The most logical answer would be that I am not a fond of this uniform."
Sklonder tolled Tuvok the truth on how he felt about the uniform. Janeway understood but she knew that Sklonder had no choice but to change into a new uniform as his old one was all torn to shreds. "I understand that you had to be in a different uniform but you had no choice. Not unless you wanted to stay in the torn up uniform. Plus you'll be staying with us for...."
Before Janeway could even finish, Sklonder interrupted her. "No I cannot. This is not my home Captain. The Toklarnius was the only ship I had that was close to being home. I cannot stay here."
Sklonder tolled Janeway. Janeway noticed that Sklonder was getting some emotions to him. Tuvok quickly noticed it right away before anyone else did. "It appears that you are showing some emotion."
Tuvok tolled Sklonder. "True. When I was a child, I had trouble controlling my emotions. But even now, I still have trouble controlling them as I have not yet fully managed to control them."
Tuvok thought for a moment and thought maybe he could help Sklonder control his emotions better. "Perhaps I can help you learn how to fully control your emotions?"
Tuvok asked Sklonder and Sklonder nodded. "Perhaps."
Janeway understood how upset Sklonder was to lose his entire crew and his ship and wanted to help him. "Don't worry Sklonder. I will do everything I can to help you and find you a new ship. I'll have Voyager search around to try and see if we can find anyone that would be kind enough to lend you a ship to get you home."
Janeway smiled at him and Sklonder smirked a little but quickly stopped smirking. "And I will do what I can to help you."
The Doctor tolled Sklonder and Sklonder nodded in agreement. Now Voyager has a new member and is on the search to try and find a new ship to take Sklonder home.
