Atlantis in Space
Scene in the transporter room
Wesley: Bye, Mom.
Dr. Crusher: I wish you would come with me. It would be a great experience for you.
Wesley: Mom, you know my job is on the Enterprise.
Dr. Crusher: Oh… You're so much like your father.
They hug, then Dr. Crusher gets on the transporter.
Wesley: Bye, Mom.
The transporter activates and Dr. Crusher disappears.
Scene on the Bridge
Wesley walks in.
Picard: Are we clear to leave, Mr. Crusher?
Wesley (with a smile on his face): Yes, Sir.
Picard: Very well. Set coarse for Trolin 4, warp 3.
Wesley: Aye, Sir. Corse and speed laid in.
Worf: Sir. Two ships are approaching in opposite directions. One is closer than the other.
Picard: Put the closer ship on screen.
A ship appears on the screen.
Worf: We've scanned the ship, their weapons are not a threat to us.
Picard: What's their destination?
Worf: They are coming right toward us.
Picard: Us? Well… all stop, let's see what they want. Open hailing frequencies.
Worf: Open, Sir.
Picard: This is Captain Jean-Luc Picard of the Fediration Starship, Enterprise.
They wait a few seconds.
Worf: No response, Sir.
Picard: Unidentified vessel, please respond.
A light goes across the bridge continuously.
Picard: What's going on?
Data: They are scanning us, Sir.
The light stops.
Worf: Sir, the ship is now hailing us.
Picard: On screen.
Triton: Captain, I'm Captain Triton of the ship Atlantis. I'm sorry about not responding to your hail, but you know how it is, meeting a strange ship in space that's a lot more powerful than myself, I have to be careful.
Picard: So it was you that was scanning us.
Triton: Afraid so, Captain.
Picard: Well… we are out here to meet new people and unless we are threatened, we do not fire on other ships.
Triton: Oh… I see. But that's not the only reason I was scanning your ship, Captain.
Riker: Then why was you scanning our ship.
Triton: Oh. Well, Commander, I'm searching for someone.
Riker: Who are you looking for? Maybe we can help you find them.
Triton: Why thank you, Commander. I would be very grateful for your help. I'm looking for a young boy… oh, what was his name. (Thinks for a second.) Oh, yeah, I remember. Crusher. Wesley Crusher.
Wesley looks up at the screen in surprise then at Picard.
Picard: What do you want with him?
Triton: I just wanted to meet him. His mom, Beverly, has told me so much about him.
Picard: How do you know Beverly?
Triton: I met her on one of the star bases of your Fediration.
Riker: We'll help you locate this Wesley Crusher boy.
Triton: Thank you, Commander.
The screen turns off.
Picard: Mr. Worf, contact Star base 562 and patch it through to my ready room.
Worf: Aye, Sir.
Picard walks into his ready room, sits down in his chair, and looks at the view screen. The Starfleet symbol appears on the screen, then a communication officer appears.
Communication officer: What can I do for you, Captain?
Picard: Has Dr. Beverly Crusher left yet?
Communication officer: Not yet, Sir.
Picard: Patch me through to her.
The communication officer nods her head and then Dr. Crusher appears on the screen.
Dr. Crusher: Captain, what can I do for you?
Picard: Dr., do you know a man named Triton?
Dr. Crusher: Triton… No. Why?
Picard: His ship is here and he said he knew you. He said you met him at a star base.
Dr. Crusher looks down and thinks for a second, then looks up.
Dr. Crusher: No, Captain, I've never met him before. Listen, I've got to leave, the shuttle is leaving in 5 minutes.
Picard: Very well, Dr. Thank you and good luck.
Dr. Crusher: Thanks.
The screen goes blank, then Picard goes back to the bridge.
Picard: Mr. Worf, hail the Atlantis.
The screen comes on and Captain Triton is on it.
Triton: Captain, did you find anything out?
Picard: Yes. We do not have any idea where this Wesley Crusher person is. I'm sorry we could not be anymore help.
Triton: Captain, you and me both know that you know Wesley. According to the scan I did, he's on the bridge right now.
Picard: You have no proof of that. Do you even know what he looks like?
Triton: Of coarse, Captain, Beverly keeps in touch with me. She even sends pictures of her and Wesley to me sometimes.
Picard: You're lying.
Triton: Why would I lye about this, Captain. I heard he was on the Enterprise, so when I heard you say your ship was the Enterprise, I just wanted to see him for myself.
Picard: I talked with Beverly a few minutes ago and she said she's never heard of you.
Triton just stared at the screen, silently, for a few seconds.
Triton: Captain, she obviously doesn't remember me because of her work and because we haven't spoken or written to each other for months.
Riker: If Dr. Crusher really does know you, then she should remember you even though she's been working hard.
Triton looks back behind him then back at the screen with a worried look on his face.
Picard: What is the real reason you are trying to find him, Captain?
Triton: Captain, I promise. I just want to see him. Send him over here with a security team if you wish, please.
He looks behind him and then back at the screen with an even more worried look on his face.
Picard: What are you so afraid of?
Triton: What are you talking about, Captain? I'm not afraid of anything.
Picard: Then why do you keep looking off screen?
Triton slams his hand on the arm of his command chair then stands up.
Triton (with anger and fear in his voice): Picard, I demand that you send him over immediately! *sigh* (with a calmer voice and a straighter face) I'm sorry. I just… I mean… I…
A stern, strong looking woman pushes Triton out of the way.
Ursula: I am Ursula, Captain, and I am in charge of this ship. Why do you not allow Wesley Crusher to come here?
Picard: Because he is my responsibility and I cannot allow him to go over to an unknown ship.
Ursula: He is one boy, and he is also capable of making his own decisions. What does he say?
Both Ursula and the bridge crew look at Wesley for his answer.
Wesley looks at Picard then at Ursula on the screen.
Wesley (with a frightened look on his face): I… don't want to go to your ship.
Ursula (with an outraged look on her face): You are only saying that because your Captain wants you to. (to Picard) You will tell him to come over or I'll have your whole ship destroyed!
Ursula cuts off the communications.
Picard looks at Riker, then at Wesley, then back at Riker again.
Picard: Mr. Worf, contact the shuttle Dr. Crusher's on and patch it through to my ready room. Number One.
Both Picard and Riker go into the Captain's ready room, and sits down in front of the screen.
Dr. Crusher: This is the Medical shuttle, Tour, what do you need Enterprise?
Picard: Beverly, are you busy at the moment?
Dr. Crusher: No, not at the moment. Why?
Picard looks at Riker then back at the screen.
Worf (over the intercom): Captain, Ursula is requesting to talk to you.
Picard: (to Beverly) Beverly, please monitor this conversation with us. (to Worf, over the intercom) Worf, put it through to my screen.
Worf (over the intercom): Aye, Sir.
Ursula's face came on half of the screen.
Ursula: Captain, may I beam aboard your ship to talk to you face to face?
Picard: You may.
Ursula's face went off the screen, then she appeared in the room.
Picard and Riker both stand up in response to her arrival, but then sits back down.
Picard: I didn't expect you to arrive so quickly.
Ursula: I'm sorry, Captain, but I must speak to you about the boy.
Picard: Well, it's not up to me really.
Ursula: Then who is it up to so that I may talk to them about it.
Picard looks at her and then turns the screen around so Ursula could see Dr. Crusher.
Picard: This is Dr. Crusher, and she's the one to talk to.
Riker comes out of the Captain's ready room followed by Picard and Ursula.
Picard: You have no other reason to be here, so leave my ship.
Ursula: You will not get away with this, Captain. You, your ship, and everyone on it will be destroyed.
Picard: We have scanned your ship, and we have learned that your weapons are no match for our ship.
Ursula looks at Picard with an angry face, then signals her ship to beam her back to the Atlantis.
Ursula: We shall she about that, Captain.
She disappears from the bridge.
Worf: Captain, the other ship is hailing us.
Picard: Put it on the screen.
A beautiful, blond haired woman comes on the screen.
Megan: Hello, I am Megan Ferrel. This ship is the Alexandria.
Picard: I am Captain Jean-Luc Picard of the U.S.S. Enterprise.
Megan: Wonderful. What is the name of the ship you are talking to?
Picard: It's called the Atlantis.
Megan (with a big smile): Oh, wonderful. I must talk with them.
Megan cuts the communication off and Picard turns and looks at Riker with eyes wide and eyebrows raised.
Picard: That was different.
Worf: Sir, the Atlantis is powering up wepons.
Picard (annoyed): Raise shields. Go to red alert.
Worf pushed a few buttons on his consul.
Worf: Sir, we are being hailed by the Alexandria.
Picard (to no one in particular): What do they want now? (to Worf) On screen.
Megan comes on the screen smiling.
Megan: Captain, you have no sensible reason to have your shields up.
Picard: I know, but we are required to raise shields when a ship targets our ship.
Megan: But you can prevent you destruction.
Riker: Ms. Ferrel, we don't feel threatened by the Atlantis. Their weapons are not a threat to us.
Worf: Sir, I rescanned the Atlantis, their weapons are not the same.
Worf: Their weapons are more powerful than ours.
Picard: And their shields?
Riker: How can they have weapons and shields that are not a threat to us one minute and a threat to us the next.
Megan: They are more powerful than you thank.
Picard: Apparently so. Mr. Worf, shields at Maximum.
Worf: Aye, Sir.
Riker: Ms. Ferrel, do you know why the Atlantis is attacking?
Megan: Of course I do.
Picard: Why is it not sensible to have our shields raised when they have their weapons pointed at us?
Megan: I told you, Captain, because you can prevent it.
Picard (with a little anger in his voice): How!
Megan: By giving the boy to Ursula.
Picard: What boy?
Megan: I don't know his name, but you know who I'm talking about. Oh, and , Captain, they can get him if they want, their transporter is much more sophisticated than your's.
Riker: What do you mean?
Megan: I will let them explain it to you, they may even show you. Good-bye, Captain.
The screen goes back to show the Atlantis.
Worf: Sir, the Atlantis is now hailing us.
Picard: On screen.
Ursula: Captain, I will give you one more chance to hand over the boy before I destroy your ship.
Wesley looks back at Picard and Riker and sees that their face was calmer than his, then turns back to the screen. (while Picard talked)
Picard: I said it before and I will say it again… NO!
Triton: Captain, you are foolish to keep him, and I promise no harm will come to him.
Riker: How can we trust you?
Triton: (to Ursula) Ursula, darling, please, let me handle this.
Ursula looks at him, then to the screen, then back at Triton.
Ursula: (to Triton) Alright, but you better get him.
Triton: (to Ursula) I will, darling, don't worry about it.
Ursula takes one more look at the screen, then walks off screen. Triton shakes his head, then looks at the screen.
Triton: (to Picard) Captain, I'm sorry about that. She thinks she can get whatever she wants.
Picard: I see. Well… I don't care who I'm talking to, my answer is still no.
Triton: Captain, please, try to be reasonable. It will only be for a few hours and my offer still stands.
Riker: What offer was that?
Triton: That you may send a security team with him. Captain, I beg of you.
Picard: You still haven't told us why you want him to go to your ship.
Riker: If you tell us, we might let him go to your ship.
Triton (surprised): You will?
Picard: He said might. Tell us the reason.
Triton just stares at the screen with a surprised look on his face.
Picard: Captain Triton?
Triton (still shocked): Uhh… I'm sorry. I didn't think it would be that easy.
Picard: So, you will tell us why you want him?
Triton: Of course, Captain. We need to talk to him.
Picard (a little annoyed): Yes, but why or what do you want to talk to him about.
Triton starts to open his mouth, but closes it and looks off screen.
Ursula (angry and off screen): Your time is up, Triton!
Triton stands up and runs off screen.
Triton (off screen): NO!
Ursula (off screen): You can't stop me!
Triton (off screen): But I may have found a way to get him without doing that!
There was silence for a few seconds.
Ursula (off screen): You're too late. (to another officer) Raise shields to maximum and proceed.
Picard looks at Riker then sees a bright, shimmering light coming in the direction of the helm.
Picard (very angry): Triton!
Triton: Please, Captain, let me handle this.
Triton cuts off communications, and the screen shows the Atlantis.
Riker: (to Picard) Well… What now?
