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!

..January 9th,2016...

...Florida,Miami...10:49 AM..

"Why are you so sad?" Data asks, as Amanda's father is sitting on a chair to the porch.

"Everyday she goes in there, top secret base, and doesn't come back for days," Amanda's father said. "I believe one day...There won't be a shred of my daughter left behind."

"Maybe you should have told her this before she left," Data said.

"I don't need to tell her," Amanda's father said. "She knows it in her heart."

"Huh," Data said. "That is a phrase I like to relate to."

"But you're an android," Amanda's father said.

"Yes," Data said.

"Androids have their robotic guts to rely on," Amanda's father said, with a sigh. "Androids don't have hearts."

"Yes," Data said.

"Tell me," Amanda's father said, turning his head up towards Data. "Have you ever been a father?"

Data nods.

"Yes, I've been a father," Data said. "And I have her memories. Her name was Val."

"Pretty name," Amanda's father said, softly.

"Yes, it was," Data said. "It means beloved."

"If your daughter was still alive..." Amanda's father said. "What if."

"What if what?" Data asks.

"If your daughter was being lost bit by bit by a Federation program, what would you do?" Amanda's father asks.

Data pauses.

"Try...Try to help her of course," Data said.

Amanda's father sighs.

"You're one lucky guy not to feel," Amanda's father said.

"I have a emotion chip installed," Data said;.

"Oh god," Amanda's father said.

"What?" Data asks.

"You'll understand one day," Amanda's father said.

"I really like to know," Data said.

"If someone pissed you off by killing the one most closest to you; what would you do?" Amanda's father asks.

"Follow regulations," Data said.

"No, damn it," Amanda's father said, shaking his right hand. "You would get revenge the proper way or not the proper way."

"I am sorry, but in my time it is not recommended to go out on a vengeance mission," Data said.

"Whatever is happening in that base, god knows what, something is happening to my little girl," Amanda's father said. "It won't end when you two go home."

"Perhaps I'll understand what is happening when I see it for myself," Data said.

Amanda's father shook his head.

"No, for once; this is not part of your business on Earth,Data," Amanda's father said. "If anything, I will find out for myself."

"If I am correct sir, this is my business," Data said.

"Just promise you won't get in what my daughter is in," Amanda's father said.

"I am sorry, my processor is malfunctioning," Data said.

"I wasn't born yesterday, sonny," Amanda's father said. "You are hearing what you want to hear."

"I didn't hear the last part," Data said.

Amanda's father smiles at Data's attitude.

"I am not going to ask," Amanda's father said.

La Forge came out of the garage.

"I have the cloaking device prepared!" La Forge said.

"Good luck getting home," Amanda's father said.
