Which Came First the Avian or the Egg? Part 5 (Finale)
S02 Ep05: The Avian Flew the Cukoo's Nest (Incidental Posts)
Location: Xindaria Surface / Ancient City
Timeline: Mission 5 Day 22.1
The Away Team has returned to the present day surface of Xindaria with Dr Brevnit and the egg and the box of the de-evolved Gorn.
- Xindaria Surface, on the southern edge of the Ancient City -
"Well, how do we know if we have indeed arrived when we needed to arrive?" Dodd asked as the last of the away team stepped through the Torus' event horizon.
"From all the analysis, this should be the proper place in time you were pulled from." Brevnit replied. "If correct, all of your technology should reset automatically as they will realign to the time period."
The Torus' event horizon closed and there was no trace of any stow-away travellers. All the members of the team appeared to be unharmed from the experience other than they were all in need of proper hygiene and nutrition as well as through medical exams. The six Gorn appeared to be still simple lizards but it was a matter of time if they would rapidly evolve back to the form they were before the trip or not.
Dodd's tricorder suddenly powered on and started to signal an alert from the Tomcat. This was a good thing as it meant the ship already received readings of their presence on the surface.
"I for one am glad to be home and now we have to work to help Dr Brevnit and his colleagues get resettled in our time and help them get reintroduced to the Xindi," Dodd stated.
The rest of the team all rejoiced in their own ways. Some happy tears were shed while others cheered in joy. They all started to check out their gear that made the journey. Tricorders all started to power back on or refresh.
=/\= Dodd to Tomcat. =/\= Dodd signaled the ship.
On the bridge of her ship, Jasmine practically jumped out of her seat as the ships Communications came to life, she walked over to the Comms station which was currently vacant and pressed the button.
=/\= Captain Somers here, are we glad to hear your voice, what is the problem? =/\= she asked.
=/\= No real problem other than we are needing transport of some sort to the ship as the shuttle is now a lost relic. =/\= Dodd replied. =/\= We will need to arrange for a diplomatic entourage for the Xindi Avians that have journeyed here from the alternate time we were in. And we have an issue with six Gorn who need care until something can be worked out for them as well considering the condition they are currently in. =/\=
=/\= Acknowledge, sending down one of our troop transport shuttles and a runabout, Somers out =/\= she said and closed the link.
After a few moments, the Tomcat signaled that a shuttle was en-route to claim the Away Team and the lizard Gorn and Dr Brevnit and the egg. Soon they would all be on the Tomcat and relieved of duty for a short stint to recover and adjust to the present. However, as Starfleet officers, they were aware that anything could happen at any moment.
