::|| Kirk wiped the blood from his chin that poured from the small wound in his lip. The fight was shorter than he anticipated, and incredibly disappointing. The man's reputation was clearly a deception forged to intimidate his victims, and while Kirk had second guessed himself on even considering the criminal as a crew member, he now knew that this was not the place to be looking for one.

Spock's disappearance had lit the fire anew, bringing back every part of his youth that he thought he had lost since his return to life and the Federation. Teilani had lit the fire of his soul, and her loss had crushed it beyond repair. But the fire of his mind, and the passion that her loss had vanquished, had been charged full.

This wasn't about exploration, orders, duty.

This was Spock.

The young guard nodded to him as he walked by, still awestruck by the appearance of a legend many thought dead. He still hadn't gotten used to the looks. He used to joke, to laugh it off. 'Rumors have been greatly exaggerated...' He simply didn't have the patience or the time anymore.

His need for a ship and crew brought him back to the present, as it did when his mind wandered since he was given the full, 'unofficial' story of what had occurred at Romulus. Perhaps he was too harsh to judge the man he had just beaten...after all, his training and experience exceeded that of most people living. Not many humans could stand against a Klingon warrior, yet alone best them in combat. Or many of them, over years.

A Klingon. Now that was an idea. He smirked and dismissed it as quickly as it came.

Where would he go to find what he needed? He hadn't yet even tried the channels of Starfleet. He knew they would be in his way far too much. He needed talent and skill, but a rougher edge.

He also needed to know more about wormholes, black holes, red matter. Spock was his damn science officer, after all. The irony.

Wormhole.

He knew.

One place to have a drink in the galaxy, where he knew he could begin his search. There were uniforms around, of course, but he knew he'd never avoid them completely. ||::


"Deep. Space. Nine."

Prologue: Part II

::|| Kirk smiled and sighed silently as he often did when it had been some time since sitting in the Captain's chair. The ship's outfittings and upgrades were done quickly, but the techs aboard Deep Space Nine were incredibly proficient. He knew the survivors in that sector were experienced beyond their years. He was then reminded of what he saw in the mirror...

It was a strange but powerful beast, the USS Belle Reve. Appearing to be a normal freighter, it was a deadly starship with a crew complement to match its style. Those he had found were a unique assembly, that was certain. He made clear that while they may be expendable, he'd give his life for theirs in this mission if it called for it, and expected the same. Many were of nefarious and questionable character...but he needed that rough edge, and was willing to risk the consequences.

He felt almost now like a pirate, like the old stories. But then, reflecting again, he supposed that he himself was an 'old story' to many of them. How many were here simply because it was he who asked? As long as he was suited to find Spock, none of that truly mattered.

Kirk desperately wanted a cloaking device, but doubted that he'd be able to acquire one. Out of all the things he had gotten his hands on, that he deemed insane and nigh impossible, he'd been able to accomplish with relative ease. He'd awarded promotions to some of them through those missions, forming his bridge crew out of the best.

How foolish it had been to visit that prison all those months ago. It was a thought. He wasn't always right. To everyone else, he had won...another strange victory for Captain Kirk.

The Neutral Zone was close. Within days they'd arrive, and from there into Romulan space. Kirk had found that he had more sympathy for their plight than expected. It was a pity that Spock had disappeared as he had, because the near future was going to be nothing more than an attempt to organize chaos.

Knowing that he had some time before their arrival, he picked up the pad that had been laying on the arm of his chair and went back to the data he'd been pouring over for weeks. It was overwhelming, but his science officer had an incredible way of translating and summarizing higher concepts that were beyond his frame of reference.

He wondered yet if the kid had figured out what his plan was...

This crew would certainly have no qualms about it. But Starfleet would have a fit... ||::
