Timeline: Alternate reality timeline 9
- Bridge - USS Tomcat -
During this moment, the Tomcat got itself a new arrival, in the form of Brigadier General Jasmine Somers, Griffith’s due to training stood bolt upright when her first officer Major Paul Sharpe shouted “General on Deck!”
“At ease, Colonel Griffith’s might I speak to you in private?” Jasmine Somers asked.
“Yes General, we will go to my ready room,” Griffith’s said.
The moment both officers left the bridge, Alex arrived on the bridge, she looked over at her long time boyfriend “what is it?” she simply asked.
He looked at her “our old Commander has returned” he noticed the look “yes your cousin” Sharpe added.
“Oh!” it took a lot to silence Alex, but the news that her Cousin was here was a surprise as all had heard that the Sixth Fleet had lost all contact and had been assumed K.I.A.
After some time both came out of the Ready Room chatting and when Jasmine saw Alex she paused mid-stride and her face softened, but Alex gave her a stony look and left the bridge, Jasmine knew her cousin would come around in time, but for now matters at hand, she faces the bridge crew.
“Ship wide please,” Jasmine said.
“Ship-wide, aye General” First Lieutenant Diana Jones responded “Channel open Sir”
=/\= Officers and Captains of the fifth fleet this is Brigadier General Jasmine Somers the reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated *pause*, however, all joking aside, I have been tasked with taking command of the fifth fleet and with Colonel Griffith’s agreement I will command the fleet from the Tomcat. We have our work cut out for us, as both Klingon and Starfleet will be fighting alongside each other in greater numbers than before. When fully assembled and a solid plan of attack has been worked out we will move in for the final defence of Earth.=/\=
=/\= Latest news is that only our Xindi Allies still have any form of a strong defensive line, but this also means that they cannot come to our aide. I know some Starfleet and Klingon ships have made it to Xindi space and are assisting in its defence, we, on the other hand, have a steeper hill to climb, all our nearest allied worlds have fallen to the Dominion and with the recent fall of Kronos we are all now fighting for the last Alpha Quadrant bastion of freedom. In the coming battle, we will emerge victoriously or we will die in combat with honour, all I ask of those who survive and remain free you work on a way of freeing what is rightfully ours. Good Luck to us and Qua’pla, let's make assault plans, Somers out =/\= Jasmine looked at the bridge crew, “too much?” she asked.
“Too much is what is needed about now General, Council,” Sharpe said.
Jasmine smiled as she looked at the Klingon Chancellor he was puffed up with pride, no doubt about her comments on win or go down fighting, as she sat in the Captain’s chair she swivelled around to face him.
“Chancellor, our orders are to get you and youCouncil to safety, but the one place that would be safe has not long fallen, so you have a choice. We can get you to Earth as per our backup orders or I can offer you glory, I will not lie the chances of survival for you and your honour guard are slim to none but if you accept the day you arrive at your destination will be a good day to die. But the choice is up to you Chancellor, we have our orders, but we cannot make you obey those same orders, what say you?” Jasmine asked.
The Chancellor was about to speak when the Communications Officer made an announcement “Sirs, report just in the Federation Council and High Command has just been wiped out as they tried to leave in escape shuttles and earth has been blockaded and orbital bombardment has begun”
The bridge was silent, deathly silent all were in shock, Jasmine was the first to recover.
“Who is the ranking member of the Federation?” Somers asked.
Sharpe who was looking over the reports and without looking “the highest ranking Fleet Officer in all ships and in Sol is a Fleet Commodore” he paused and looked at Jasmine “You are the ranking Officer General, the Federation is yours to command” Sharpe announced.
“Open a channel to Starfleet Academy if it is still standing,” Jasmine said.
