Journey to Beta Ceti score: 22 of 100 boarding_alien


The bulk of the boarding party is armed with shoulder phasers and flash grenades, and the first group steps onto the transporter. The transporter engages... and they are gone, quickly replaced by reinforcements. You return hurriedly to the bridge.

As reports filter back in, you hear explosions and phaser fire; the alien crew was apparently not as damaged as the ship. Nevertheless, they are no match for top-flight Federation personnel, and the alien's bridge is quickly secured.


You notice Spock staring intently at his workstation when three things happen almost simultaneously.

Spock: "Captain, I am detecting an unusual energy..."

Boarding party leader (over the comm link): "My God, you'll never believe this, but every bloody alien on the bridge has..."

The viewscreen's dimmer engages rapidly as the alien vessel blossoms into a tremendous fireball. Wreckage streams past the Enterprise as the crew reacts.

"Extend the shields around the Belvedere! Mr. Sulu, arm phasers and destroy any wreckage which threatens..."

The Belvedere, apparently struck by a small piece of wreckage in an already weakened bulkhead, gracefully explodes. A brief display of fireworks erupt as wreckage from the two ships collide.


Spock: "The energy source was apparently their self-destruct unit. I am detecting no life-forms in the wreckage. I am sorry, Captain."

You proceed to Beta Ceti Three with those rescued from the ill-fated Belvedere; your mission there is a success despite your delay, and Starfleet Command commends you on a job well-done. As you resume routine, however, one small question still nags the back of your mind: What was it that every bloody alien on the bridge had?
