Mine-Sweeper…

Wales 053

*

I entered the ruin to a low hum…

The snug fit of my arms in the portal vectors was no accident.

Once inserted an irreversible chain reaction commenced.

The stone and wood around me shifted into old form:

sleek… modular…

The screen before my face showed a small orange planet, turning in space.

The hieroglyphs overhead read Mine-Sweeper…

Earth-to-Venus-Sixty-Nine.

Thinking the words was enough to initiate the familiar

‘Thwop-Thwop-Thwop…’

of passing solar systems.

Three light speeds later and the low hum again indicated arrival.

White-Glare flooded the craft.

“Welcome back, Agent Blonde. How goes it with Urantia?”

“Not good, Ma’am…”

…not as we know it.

…Moments later the bars of blue light shimmered into three tightly clad figures.

Kirk, glanced expectantly around the room and sighed.

Spock arched a well manicured eye-brow skyward.

“An empty writing room,” pronounced Sulu, somewhat redundantly.

Kirk’s hand held communication unit twittered into life.

“Better check the co-ordinates on that one Scottie, I asked for ‘enterprising room’, dammit!”

Meantime, Spock had slithered over to the window and was peering through the white-blue light.

“Captain, no, wait…”

“What is it Spock?” asked Kirk moving toward the window.

“Well, it’s life Jim, but…” smiled Sulu, who was already there.
