-Bajoran space, Stardate 41523.3 (the year 2373), Federation Space Station Deep
It was a plain and boring day on the old Cardassian space station for Captain
Benjamin Sisko and the rest of his senior officers. No activity by the Founders or by the
Klingons. It was getting late in the Control Room where Dax was busy monitoring the
"Benjamin," said Commander Jadzia Dax, Trill who has the memories of seven
life-times, "its getting late, would you like to have some dinner?"
"No thanks, old man, I promised Jake I would make him a fancy home cooked
meal. Maybe another night."
"Hey, you're the Captain, Captain."
As the shifts came to changing, Captain Sisko retreated to his and Jake's quarters.
As he walked in he saw the face of his son, who had almost out-grown his father. Jake
was a good young man, he was kind person, but one who had suffered losses. It had been
around four or five years since he lost his mother in the bloody battle with the Borg, Wolf
359. That battle saw the end of thirty-nine Federation ships and nearly ten-thousand lives.
"Hey Dad, busy day?" Jake said with the usual smile on his face.
"Nowhere near. A boring day at the office if nothing else. I'm going to go change
out of this uniform and then we'll start some home cooking."
"Great," Jake said in response.
Just as the Captain was walking toward his room, the all-too familiar voice of his
first officer, Major Kira Neryss came over the intercom.
"Captain, I think you'd better get up here, Sir. We have a little problem."
"Acknowledged," said the Captain.
"Jake..." before he could finish his son cut him off.
"Don't worry Dad, I understand, duty calls."
"You're a great kid, Jake. Well, I mean, great MAN."
Jake smiled, but Benjamin could see his son was disappointed.
"Tomorrow night, I promise," said the captain on his way out the door.
As Benjamin entered the Control Room he looked at the view screen. He was
shocked to see a huge glowing cloud rolling outside the station.
"What is that?" he said to his officers.
"It appears to be an energy cloud of some sort. There's a lot of interference, the
sensors are having a hard time penetrating it to get detailed readings," said Dax.
Commander Worf, the station's Strategic Operations Officer decided to speak
"Captain, I suggest we send out a Level 2A Sensor Probe. Its shielding and
neutronic subspace signal projector will be able to penetrate that much interference."
"He's right Benjamin," said Dax.
"Good, ready the probe and send it out."
The probe was fired from the station and sent into the core of the energy
"We are beginning to receive information from the probe. We're getting audio
and video, Benjamin," said Dax.
"On screen," ordered the Captain.
Then upon the screen appeared sereen and beautiful landscapes. They saw two
strange looking women. One was clad in leather and armor with weaponry riding a horse.
The other, dressed in a skirt wrap carrying a single staff. The audio began coming through.
"Xena, I don't understand why you won't let me pamper Argo a bit. She needs a
good grooming. Maybe a little soap to that hair and a little bit of brushing," said the
smaller woman with the staff.
"Gabrielle, this is my horse, I will do what I please," said the Warrior Woman to
her friend looking down from the steed.
Staring shocked and confused at what he was witnessing Captain Sisko mumbled
"People? People living in an energy cloud in space?"
"Benjamin, we're getting more readings from the probe. Amazing, the cloud is a
massive temporal disturbance," said Dax.
"Look," said the Major.
Just then, on the screen, they saw a small building of sorts, with columns
"Wait a minute," said the Captain, "I recognize that, it's Ancient Greek
architecture. But it looks brand new. If this is a temporal disturbance, we might be looking
right into Ancient Greece."
"Amazing," said Worf, in his low-tone.
Sisko, speaking to the computer, "Computer, give all information pertaining
to a Xena and Gabrielle from Ancient Greece.
"Xena and Gabrielle," said the computer, "according to scrolls discovered in the
twentieth century, Xena was a powerful and agile Warrior Princess. She was one of the
greatest warriors in the ancient mythology. She had several legendary exploits. Her
traveling companion, Gabrielle of Potedeia, was a hopeful bard who accompanied Xena on
all of her adventures.
"Fascinating," said Sisko.
"Oh no," said Dax, "Benjamin we have a problem."
"What is it?" the Captain questioned.
"The cloud..its..coming toward us."
"What!?" said Sisko.
"Captain," said Worf, "its very possible that this energy cloud is also an energy-
absorbing cloud. The station gives off several forms of energy. It is probably hungry."
"He's probably right, Captain," said Kira.
The captain thought about what his next move would be. Then, he decided he
had no choice. He went over the intercom.
"Attention all senior officers. Report to the Defiant immediately. Only
"Why only senior officers, Benjamin?" said Dax.
"If that thing is as powerful as I think, we're in a lot of trouble. No need
to kill senior and junior officers."
Moments later, the senior staff: Lt. Commander Worf, Lt. Commander Dax, Major
Kira, Cheif O'Brien, Constable Odo, Dr. Bashir, and, of course, Captain Sisko, all
reported ready onboard the U.S.S Defiant.
"Detach locking clamps," ordered the Captain. "This is just what I love doing
when I should be eating dinner with my son."
"Captain, the energy cloud is dangerously close to the station," said Worf.
"Ready the energy bursts," said the Captain.
"Ready," said the Cheif.
"Send out the first bursts," ordered the Captain.
The cloud was attracted to the energy bursts. It left its previous prey in search of
this new target. The energy bursts were steady from the Defiant. But, soon the cloud
wanted more. It wanted what was in the Defiant.
"Captain, it appears to be working. The cloud is being drawn away from DS9,
but its coming straight for us," said Worf.
Suddenly, the cloud began moving faster toward the Defiant.
"Captain, its speeding up," said Worf.
"Turn us about, full impulse!" said the Captain.
"Moving full impulse," said Dax.
"Captain, its matching our speed!" said Worf.
"Warp one, GO!" cried the Captain.
"Engaging at warp one....now!" cried Dax as she activated the warp drive.
"Captain, the cloud is still matching our speed," said Worf, "Sir, I once heard
Commander Data, on the Enterprise, say that since energy is free from the limitations of
matter, it can travel anywhere at any velocity."
"You mean to tell me that that thing can go beyond warp ten?" asked the
"Aye, Sir," responded Worf.
"Captain," said the Chief, "maybe we could use the wormhole. If we lead it back to
the wormhole, maybe it will become so confused in all that energy that it might devour
After a moment of consideration..
"Its worth a shot," said the Captain. "Set a return course to the station,
Moments later, the Defiant returned to the station with the energy cloud
hot on its tail. As they headed for the wormhole, the cloud grew weary of
this game of cat-and-mouse. It blasted toward them and in a single momentary
surge engulfed the Defiant.
"WHAT'S HAPPENING!?" cried the Captain.
"IT HAS ABSORBED US, SIR!" responded Mr. Worf.
Those were the painful screams of the crew onboard the Defiant, as they were
ripped out of there own reality and hurdled through space and time into the distant past.
Near the station only the drifting empty carcass of the Defiant was left. Then in a bright
flash of powerful energy, the cloud annihilated the station and all ships nearby. Then, the
-Ancient Greek Woodlands, circa 2000 B.C.
"Xena, how much longer to Epiria?" said the young bard, Gabrielle. While
looking about at the beautiful scenery.
"Not too long, maybe four or five hours," responded Xena the great Warrior
Then, with a surge of monstrous energy and a blinding flash the senior staff
of the Defiant was deposited on the green grass. Xena drew her sword and leaped down
"Who are you!? What are you doing here!?" said Xena.
"Hey, you're Xena and you're Gabrielle, aren't you?" said Major Kira.
"Do we know you?" asked Gabrielle.
"No, but we know you," said the Captain. "My name is Captain Benjamin Sisko,
these are my senior officers: Major Kira Neryss, Lt. Commander Worf, Lt. Commander
Jadzia Dax, Dr. Julian Bashir, Cheif Miles O'Brien, and Constable Odo. We are, I suppose,
from around four and a half thousand years in the future."
"What?" said Xena stunned by what this strange man had just said.
"I am the commanding officer of a station far, far away from Earth." said
"Okay, okay," said Xena, "so basically you are from the distant future. And
just how did you manage to get yourselves stuck here?"
"An energy cloud that was actually a rip in time absorbed us," said Dax, "that's
also how we knew about you two. We saw you in the rip."
"Okay...uh..do all people look so different in the future?" asked Gabrielle.
"There are many kinds of beings out there that we have met. Worf is a Klingon,
Kira is a Bajoran, Odo is a Changling, or was, I suppose, now he's human. Dax is a Trill.
The Doctor, Chief and I are human," said the Captain.
"Yeah, whatever," said Gabrielle.
"Captain, I hate to bring this up, but what are we going to do now?" asked
"I don't know, Constable," responded the Captain.
"I guess you could come with us to Epiria. There's some sort of Festival
there. Gabrielle really wanted to stop by," said Xena, "maybe you could
even come in handy."
"Of course, knowing Xena, there'll be trouble," said Gabrielle.
"Hey, I never start trouble, but I always finish it," responded Xena.
"Don't worry, ladies, I think we can take care of ourselves," said the
Two hours Later...
"This is strange, its too quiet," said Xena, "the road to Epiria is almost always
filled with bandits and thieves. I was kinda looking forward to doing a little cleaning up."
"Just out of curiosity," said Gabrielle, "what are those things on your
"Well," said the Doctor pulling out his tricorder, "this is called a
tricorder. It records information about something by just aiming it at the
"And this is a phaser. It's a dangerous weapon and has the ability to stun
something, or kill it," said the Major.
"Amazing," said Gabrielle.
"Okay, now that we've answered your questions, maybe we can get some answers
from you. Xena, what is that round metal object hanging from your belt?" asked the
"It's called a chakrum. It's also a dangerous weapon, but comes in very handy in
tight situations," said Xena.
"What does it do?" asked the Chief.
"You throw it. The side is as sharp as a razor," said Xena.
Three hours later...
"Well, we're almost there," said Xena.
Just then a small group of bandits leaped out of the bushes on the sides of
"Well, well, if it isn't Xena. Aren't you going to introduce me to your ugly
friends?" said the leader.
Xena drew her sword.
"Maxius, how have you been, lately? Do you have that little scar from that wound
I gave you that made you, oh, how can I word this nicely, less of a man?"
All of the men in the group cringed at the thought. Gabrielle chuckled.
"Now, you're gonna die, BITCH!" said Maxius,"ATTACK!!"
Maxius's men attacked with their swords and staffs. The senior staff of DS9 pulled
out their phasers. They fired, leaving all of Maxius's men unconcious.
"What...WHAT ARE YOU!?" Maxius said, scared to death that he had incurred
the wrath of gods.
"We're Starfleet Officers," replied the Captain.
He was getting ready to stun Maxius when Xena stopped him.
Xena drew her sword. Maxius attacked with an overhead swing. Xena blocked
with her blade. She swung to his face. Blocked. And swung low. Blocked. Xena
swung around quickly and hook kicked Maxius in the face and then struck him
with the handle of her sword. He was out.
"So much for Maxius," said Worf.
But not yet. While Xena had her back turned, Maxius picked up his sword and
came at her with an overhead swing. She sensed him coming and swung her sword
around and stabbed him without even turning around.
"Umm, so much for Maxius," said Gabrielle.
Later, they approached Espiria, and Sisko and the others were amazed at
seeing Ancient Greek architecture in perfect condition.
"Hey Gabrielle, what kind of festival is this anyway?" asked Kira.
"Its not tuned to one thing really, there's a lot of everything," responded
"I've heard some strange things about this place, though," said Xena, "stories
about mad sorcerers trying to arise ancient powers in these temples. I don't like it here."
"Those are probably all overexaggerated stories and rumors," said Gabrielle,
hoping she was right.
Suddenly, a bright flash came from one of the temples.
"SILLY STORIES? RUMORS?" said Xena.
They ran to the temple gates and they looked in.
"I don't believe it," said Bashir, "its the cloud!"
They saw an old man in a robe with a group of high priests around an altar. They
were chanting. A small energy cloud was forming above their heads.
"It started here. It started right here," said the Captain.
"My God," said the Chief.
"God? Don't you mean gods?" asked Gabriell
