Chapter 1 Martyr 烈士
Hello central do you copy? Heading towards Quadrant Delta.
Yes Detective we hear you loud and clear
Pursuing leads to find the Scribe
Wish me luck
Oh detective you don’t need luck
Sure I do everyone needs luck.
J, where the heck are you going?
G, Just following up on some leads
It might be a trap J
I know. But I have to find him
Why are you in such a hurry? Get more information before you go. You still have plenty of time.
Time is something that I…
Never mind. G, Can you do me a favor. Can you find information regarding the last appearance of the Scribe. I want to know if my information and what you can find are in congruence.
Congruence my …Just tell me what exactly what you’re looking for and I’ll go do it.
OK I’ll send the details over the transmitter. See what you can find and contact me ASAP. My life depends on you.
Oh wait a second. Don’t say that your life depends on me. That is too heavy. You look out for yourself, you hear me.
I want to know how he does it. Is he a psychic, Does he use telepathy or does he use some sort of quantum effects, String effects or even what’s that called…
Yes some sort of effects at the Plank scale…You know there are words out now that some body is Working on these sub nuclear scale chemical entities That would have tremendous impact on our existence. I want to know if they’re connected. He’s already causing a lot of troubles in my neighborhood.
How is that J?
I’ll explain later. If I live to tell…
Hey J, got bad news for you.
I dug through the files and guess what I found?
Very funny. No. Nothing.
How do you have nothing when I have something?
I don’t know. There’s not one record of where the Scribe had been.
Well there’s got to be at least one or else someone erased it all.
An inside job?
That’s a real possibility but I don’t have evidence. Guess what else I found?
What’s with you and money? You’re a detective. You’re not supposed to have money. No I found a record of some unrest in the Delta quadrant where are you heading.
Unrest? What kind of unrest?
The ones that you don’t like? Apparently a few are Earth months ago there have been some riot. It’s not clear from the records why there was a riot or what happened afterward.
Which exoplanet was it on.
It mentioned a few exoplanets actually. But the main planet exoplanet was NCCb1921.
NCCPA 1921? I was there a few earth years ago. It was quite peaceful. And beautiful. One of the most well built exoplanets in the near earth united republic.
Well apparently something happened. The report doesn’t say anything in detail though.
Could you ask somebody to find out.?
You might have to wait a while. I got to take care of something first.
No worries. I’m still about two or three months away from getting there.
All right. I’ll get back to you as soon I take care of something.
Hey, can you drop a line to my wife?
You should do it yourself.
Well, she like to hear it from you.
What do you want me to say.
Just tell her I’ll be fine.
You’re asking me to lie?
I’m going to be fine. Really!
J, it might really be a trap after all.
I know but I’m going anyway. I’ll turn on the ping so you can always track me. It will be linked to my bio signature. Just in case you want to know if I’m still alive.
Ha ha very funny. Only you can joke about something so dangerous.ying
Nah whoever it is, I think I’m more useful alive rather than dead. Scribe…where the heck are you…
In a dark room a man doing some sort of ritual. Two other men sitting opposite him. One pours some sort of emerald liquid into the cup and hands it to the other. The man drinks from the cup and then relaxed to a lotus meditation position. The other man without a drink also relaxed into the same position.
The man dancing the ritual suddenly stops and shakes and tremble and then he spoke, “He is coming. The man flying in a vehicle named the BBH Martyr.”
“To the Rule room” he said. The men hurried in. In the center of the room was a statue of a beautiful women holding a eternal burning candle. In front of the statue is a console.
“Klaxar, reprogram the spatial rules for entry point b to the delta quadrant.”
“Why? Didn’t you want him to come?”
“Yes, but he comes prepared. More prepared then I had hoped. My plan might just back fire.”
“But changing the spatial rules will signal to him that…”
“Yes I know he will have more clues…fine then…let him come…”
The lady statue smiled.
“Your holiness, I know he is not a bad person but he is too nosy and is complicating our tasks,” the Scribe said to the statue.
The statue stood silent still with a smile on her.
“Glax, assist your brother and monitor the headings of the BBH Martyr and Detective J. Don’t let him out of your sight and record all his transmissions.”
“Yes, we will not let him out of our sight”
“My holiness, there are good deeds that needs to be done in the shadow. Concealed from the public. Will you cleanse us if we erred from our imperfections.”
The flame of the eternal candle swayed even though there was no wind in the room.
The statues was still smiling.
“Don’t be too harsh on yourself” Glax the younger brother said, “both Klax and I and The lady her holiness knows your kind compassionate heart. Those out there just don’t know the truth.”
The Scribe noded hesitantly.
“If I Gibra son of Ghalu do any evil shall I doom for infinity,” said the Scribe.
The statue still smiling.
“We leave the room then. And let her holiness rest”
