The shuttle

A story where Data and La Forge go through a wormhole expecting to return to a different location a couple light years from the Enterprise. This worm hole apparently was made by Romulan tech and somehow it landed in the hands of some other alien species. They didn't land where they expected originally. The wormhole brought them to Earth. In Miami, Florida. 2016. In a reality where they are mere works of fiction. Only thing they have to figure out is getting back to their time!

22. Aboard the shuttle

..The shuttle..

In a blue faze the surroundings change from a desert to the inside of a space craft that has two pods stacked on top of one another. She finds herself on a seat buckled in, somehow, which makes Amanda puzzled. Amanda looks up to see Data and La Forge now in the driver's seat while Shatner is now in the passenger seat reading a datapad.

"How did I get buckled?" Amanda asks.

"You buckled yourself in," Shatner said, paying attention to the datapad.

"All right folks," La Forge said. "We are now going outside of Earth's atmosphere, put your force fields up."

"Well, technically, you were already set to be buckled in," Data said. "This shuttle is capable of automatically buckling up whoever sits down."

Shatner puts down the datapad along the table where it is revealed he too is wearing seatbelt.

"The other shuttles are on auto-pilot," La Forge said. "Here we go!"

Amanda can feel the shuttle shake and tremble as it tore through various levels of the atmosphere. God knows how it must have felt for the unsure passengers on the other shuttle! Amanda closed her eyes clenching onto the seat belt keeping her knees together from knocking against each other. She can see the stars in the distance probably a godzilion years away. What she learned in Science Class all went over her head. Her eyes are full of curiosity. For that one moment Amanda's belief in Science Fiction had been raised.

A gigantic machine floating in the air about the size of a rounded humongous item used in a fictional franchise called 'Stargate' has a water pool like opening in the middle. Shatner and Amanda have wide eyes at the huge abnormality. Usually that would be seen on the huge wide screen in cinemas! But here it is. The one thing that two Romulans worked on for three whole months or so. Was it 2 months? Some people don't care about time being exact.

"The gate will close shortly after your shuttle," La Forge said. "And it will break apart."

"Then crash land on Earth?" Shatner asks.

"Yes," La Forge and Data said at once.

Shatner blinks, taking in the information.

''Someone could come across it and attempt to rebuild it," Shatner said. "Maybe it should be destroyed properly after my return."

La Forge smiles.

"Mr Shatner," La Forge said. "No one is going to be able to put this baby back together."

Then the five Alternate Universe settles and Enterprise shuttle went through the gate.

The gate closes and becomes inactive losing power for the time being.
