Star Trek Defender

The bloodiest war in their History's is over, now Starfleet and The United Federation of Planets are looking to rebuild and to move towards a more peaceful future.

One man seeks to challenge the hierarchy of the Federation.

One finds himself unexpectedly rising to the top of Starfleet.

Leading to the launch of a brand new Starship with a brand new crew, intended to be a force to show its enemies that Starfleet and the Federation will defend its principles and its members.

The brand new Starship Defender may just lead the way to a new era.


Author's note

A work longer in the making than you could imagine. Ongoing on here since 2014, the idea and the desire to write it have been with me for a few years longer than that.

25. The Doctor is Out

The office of the deputy chief of Starfleet Medical hadn't been to badly damaged in the Breen attack on Earth.


Some minor fire damage and a lot of shattered windows caused by the blasts from torpedoes that struck the nearby main Starfleet headquarters.


Doctor Verok's office suffered some fallen shelves and the picture frames hanging on the wall had fallen down due to the force from the blasts created by the torpedoes.


Still like the rest of Starfleet HQ and medical her office had been closed while the buildings were inspected and then repair work had begun.


Verok hadn't been in work that day, she hadn't even been on Earth that day nor many of the days before the attack.


She had been coming back from Starbase 72 where her eldest daughter lived and worked before that she had been to Starbase 8 to meet up with the USS Amadeus the ship her son served on.


After that she went to Deep Space Nine, that had been the hardest trip, collecting her husbands belongings.


She had trouble looking the officers in the eyes, Sisko had of course been understanding as had Doctor Bashir, as was Counselor Ezri Dax as she possessed the Dax Symbiont who she knew very well when it had been in a previous host.


Though seeing and being on the receiving end of advice from the young woman who possessed it now did nothing to ease her sense of loss.


That this young woman had been so closely involved with what happened to her husband also made it hard for her to maintain objective.


Ezri had not been at fault for any of it, still she found it hard to accept that this slip of a girl, thinking of an old Earth saying, had done what she couldn't, and diagnosed what had been wrong with Chu'lak.


Since arriving back on Earth, she had avoided coming in to see first hand the damage and coming back to her home or rather her room the place where she kept where she did little more than sleep and change clothes.


Verok quickly realised that this no longer felt like home, not that it ever had. Not that she had ever truly felt that way about any place she had lived.


The home she shared with Chu as she often called him where they raised their children had come the closest to giving her a feeling of belonging of being more than just a place to carry out the necessary tasks of eating, sleeping and occasionally relaxing.


She had the feeling her office would be the same, as would her classroom the Academy of Medicine and the hospitals on Earth where she held licenses to practice medicine.


Whether it had been a sense her sanctum had been violated by the attack or that what happened with her husband had changed her feelings, ruining whatever emotional connections she held for these places, Verok knew a change could be advantageous.


A change of scene as Humans put it, might be good for her.


Certainly her main reason for taking the position at Starfleet medical seemed to have ground to a halt and needed something or some place new to reignite it.


Whatever the reason, Verok made up her mind on the journey back to put in a transfer request.


It would not be easy to face Doctor Pulaski about it, but being her friend she would understand.


She might not agree with her, but Katherine wouldn't object.


Whether her other associates would be as willing to accept it would be a different matter.
