  1. Sskald: The Kradec left the area, but Krang refused to believe that the Romulans had left the system. He ordered Sklood to keep monitoring the system long after they left it behind. He was certain they had cloaked and were now in pursuit. But, until the Romulans decided to reveal themselves, there was little he could do but continue their mission. The next few weeks in the ‘awtbaq were uneventful with no further sighting of the Romulans, until an urgent message came in from Kresh on the Tyr Gash home world. Relations between the Tyr Gash and the KDF under Cholaq’s command had soured and the entire alliance was at risk. Valkara ordered the Kradec back to the Tyr Gash homeworld at slipstream.
  2. To’jet: I have a channel to Kresh, General.
  3. Valkara: Open it. (Communication chirp) What has happened?
  4. Kresh: Cholaq is a fool.
  5. Valkara: What happened?
  6. Kresh: I could not allow his disrespect stand a moment later. I grew tired of his belittlement, his hostility, and his antagonism. Honor required that I kill him and have done so by our laws as well as yours.
  7. Valkara: You killed Lt. General Cholaq? I do not understand? You two appeared to be getting along amicably.
  8. Kresh: When construction of the facilities were completed and their operations were turned over to Cholaq, we deactivated Clutch Mother as she intended us to do. Cholaq deemed us to be weak, lesser beings and acted against us. He challenged me for control of the Tyr Gash people and our planet. His actions were without honor. I defended myself and ended his pitiful existence.
  9. Krang: Cholaq was a formidable fighter. You must be a great warrior to have defeated him in honorable combat.
  10. Kresh: I saw little prowess from him. He underestimated me and my people.
  11. Valkara: What do you need?
  12. Kresh: Your people do not believe the Cholaq was slain honorably and it won’t be long before they decide to turn against us. If you want to save any aspect of this alliance, you must return here at once and diffuse this situation before further violence erupts. This is your only chance.
  13. Valkara: We will be there as soon as we can. To’jet, hail the fleet.
  14. To’jet: Ready.
  15. Valkara: This is General Valkara of the IKS Kradec. I know what has occurred. As senior officer within the ‘awtbaq, I am ordering you not to take any further action against our Tyr Gash hosts until we arrive. Any who fail to follow this order will curse the day their parents conceived them. Valkara out. Close the channel to the fleet. Kresh, can I expect the same from you and your people?
  16. Kresh: I will do what I can.
  17. Valkara: It is my hope that you will not judge all Klingons by the actions of a single warrior.
  18. Kresh: We await your arrival.
  19. Valkara: Thank you Kresh. Valkara out.
  20. Sskald: When the Kradec entered orbit, Valkara beamed down alone despite Krang’s request that he accompany her along with their best warriors, but she needed to do this alone. Kresh and an armed security team of Tyr Gash were waiting for her.
  21. Valkara: What is the meaning of this?
  22. Kresh: (speaking to his troops) Stand down and leave us. She has shown unprecedented bravery by returning alone. (speaking to the Valkara). My apologies, General Valkara. My advisors insisted an armed security detail just in case you beamed down with an army.
  23. Valkara: Krang urged me to do the same, but I insisted. With that said, he’s probably monitoring the situation with several teams of armed raiders standing by. Let’s hope that they will be unneeded.
  24. Kresh: Indeed.
  25. Sskald: Valkara and Kresh strolled around the site, speaking frankly with one another. Over that time, they ignored the looming topic at hand as both leaders attempted to learn more about each other. Respect blossomed. They talked for an hour before they finally got down to the future of their alliance. When it was all said and done, Kresh had decided to allow the Klingons to continue using the Tyr Gash facilities on one condition. It was something that Valkara would have to discuss with her superiors, but it was reasonable enough that she should be able to persuade them into agreeing.
  26. Command: What’s the condition?
  27. Valkara: Kresh and the Tyr Gash will only allow the Empire to continue operating the stronghold if I am made Commander of the fleet and liaison with the Tyr Gash.
  28. Command: I see. What about your current mission?
  29. Valkara: Commander Krang is a capable officer with years of experience. He can take command of the Kradec for the time being and continue our mission until relations with the Tyr Gash have been repaired.
  30. Command: I will confer with my superiors.
  31. Sskald: it wasn’t long before Command was back with their decision.
  32. Command: We accept the terms. Qapla’! Fleet General Valkara! Make sure you don’t make us regret this decision as we do with Cholaq.
  33. Valkara: I won’t let you down.
  34. Sskald: But Command had ended the transmission before she could get her reply out. She informed Krang first, Kresh second, and the rest of the fleet of her new rank and duties. A few days later, relations were on the mend by the time the Kradec departed the Tyr Gash homeworld under the command of General Krang.

  1. G’hargh: I do not believe it.
  2. Korrath: What’s not to believe?
  3. Hauk: For the last time, G’hargh, the Opera was entertainment. It does not attempt to be factual and should not be taken as such.
  4. Karn: I can vouch for the veracity of his story. He believes it to be true.
  5. G’hargh: That’s not what I’m talking about you fools. I do not believe Valkara would give up command of the Kradec so easily.
  6. Deyvid: What is not to understand? She is doing whatever it takes to ensure the success of her mission.
  7. Hauk: It did sound like she intended to reclaim her command once the situation with the Tyr Gash had stabilized.
  8. G’hargh: I still find it hard to believe. Perhaps I will have to make a cargo run to the ‘awtbaq sometime to verify all of these stories of yours Sskald.
  9. Sskald: And when you do, let me know and I will accompany you.
  10. Karn: Oh no. Not again. Sskald, why must you think about that now?
  11. Sskald: (Laughing) Just checking to see if you were still eavesdropping Karn.
  12. Karn: When will I learn to stay out of the minds of Gorn?
