[SCENE: Onboard ISS Vengeance, inside Admiral Darth Venomous’ quarters. Lt. T-Bone McManx, ship’s communications officer, has just entered & handed His Rudeness a data padd.
Venomous takes the padd, reads it, and hangs his head in grieving. After a moment, he looks up.]
VENOMOUS: Thank you, T-bone, that’ll be all.
T-BONE McMANX: Aye, sir. [McManx exits.]
[Venoumous slumps in his chair as if badly discouraged. He remains that way for minutes, then straightens and reaches for the comm panel.]
VENOMOUS: Venomous to Korrioth.
[A brief pause, then the general's booming voice crashes through the speaker.]
VENOMOUS: Come to my quarters, please, General.
[One can almost hear the hesitation in Korrioth’s response. The last time the admiral requested Korrioth’s presence in his cabin, it wasn’t a pleasant thing.]
KORRIOTH: On my way.
[Two minutes later, Korrioth is standing at attention in front of the admiral.]
KORRIOTH: Reporting as ordered, m’lord.
[Venomous hands Korrioth the padd. Korrioth begins to read.]
StarTrek.com is saddened to report the passing of Arlene Martel, who died on August 12 following a heart attack. The veteran television and film actress had a career that spanned parts of seven decades, dating back to the golden age of television, but she was arguably best known for her role as T’Pring in the “Amok Time” episode of Star Trek: The Original Series.
[Korrioth finishes and looks back at the admiral. It is difficult to deal with the news of the death of his mother, even moreso in front of his superior officer. Venomous breaks the silence.]
VENOMOUS: Take whomever you need with you, my friend. Our next mission can wait.
KORRIOTH: Admiral, I…I would request the entire senior staff accompany me. Including yourself, sir.
[Venomous ponders this a moment, then looks back up at his half-Vulcan, half-Klingon exec, saying nothing. He then reaches for the comm panel.]
VENOMOUS: Venomous to bridge. Mr. K’hadibak’h.
K’HADIBAK’H (through the speaker): Bridge. K’hadibak’h.
VENOMOUS: Set course for Vulcan, K’ha. Maximun warp.
K’HADIBAK’H (through the speaker): Aye, sir.
VENOMOUS (looking back at Korrioth): It would be my honor, General.
[Cut to exterior view as ISS Vengeance shoots into warp.]
The Realm offers its condolences to Arlene Martel’s family.
