This title is a compilation of short stories that show how the characters from both Team Chipmunk: The Next Generation and Star Trek: Omega Force are re-adjusting to their separate lives while dealing with the results of their actions during the Team Chipmunk: The Next Generation vs. Star Trek: Omega Force storyline.
It will also set up storylines and introduce characters that will influence the two series going forward. Each chapter will follow a single character (unless the plot of that installment requires more than one character) from either series as the adjustment begins.
Some portions of this title contain references to actual historical events; however, certain names of involved individuals have been changed to protect the innocence (or guilt) of those depicted.
TEAM CHIPMUNK: THE NEXT GENERATION
MILEY STEWART/HANNAH MONTANA
"SWEET NIBBLETS!" Miley Stewart—also known as long-lost pop singer Hannah Montana—said when she saw the words on the display screen. Following the harrowing final battle with the very Decepticons who stole almost 20 years of her life and career when they put her in cryogenic stasis, she had finally been able to resume her research into the major historical events that had taken place in that span.
And so, she sat in her quarters on the United Galactic Federation ambassadorial transport U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-B and read. She had reached May 1st, 2011-the date when the biggest event to take place in that 20-year span occurred: the capture and death of Osama bin Laden, the most wanted terrorist in human history.
She reached for the Gokaiphone on her desk and opened it. "Miley to Carter," she said. "Go for Carter," the voice on the other end said.
"Carter, can you come down to my quarters, please?" Miley said. "I need to talk to you." "On my way, Miles," Carter Evans, Miley's fiancée, said.
As soon as Miley and Carter hung up with each other, Miley closed the Gokaiphone and set it back down on her table. Then, she began to cry. She was still crying about five minutes later when the door chime rang. "Come in," she said.
The doors slid open, revealing Carter. He saw that Miley was crying and rushed over to comfort her. "Miles, are you all right?" Carter said.
"Yeah, Carter," Miley said. Carter then looked over and saw what Miley had been looking at on her monitor. "You got to bin Laden, didn't you?" he said. "Yeah," Miley said. Clearing her throat, she turned back to the monitor.
"Computer, access my personal database, cross-reference the terms 'people who know I am Hannah Montana' and 'Osama bin Laden' and play any materials that fit those terms," Miley said. "One match found. Playing video on screen," the Enterprise-B's computer said.
An information graphic appeared on the screen. It read: "WWE Extreme Rules, American Airlines Arena, Miami, Florida-May 1st, 2011. This video was taken after Extreme Rules went off the air."
The graphic then dissolved into wrestler John Cena. He held a microphone in one hand and a championship belt in the other. "I walk out here every night with hustle, loyalty and respect on my sleeve," he began. "That is a credo I have adopted from the men and women who defend the freedom of this country."
Then, after a few moments of silence, he added, "The President has just announced that we have caught…and compromised to a permanent end…Osama bin Laden."
The gathered audience burst into cheers, while some even began an "U.S.A." chant-which slowly took over the entire arena. "This is something tonight. But I feel damn proud to be an American," Cena said before leaving the ring to the strains of "Stars and Stripes Forever." He slapped the hands of those at ringside then saluted the entire audience when he reached the arena's entrance set.
When the video ended, Miley looked over at the chronometer on the table next to the display screen. It read "May 1st, 2029." "Hard to believe that all happened eighteen years ago," Miley said. "Sure would have wanted to see that as it happened."
"But at least what the Decepticons did to me had one good side effect," Miley continued. "Oh? What is that?" Carter said. Miley turned to Carter and removed his glasses so that she could look right into his brown eyes. "It brought me and you together," she said.
"Then at least we can thank the Decepticons for something," Carter said before he and Miley kissed.
Later that day, Miley was walking down a corridor towards one of the Enterprise-B's transporter rooms. She was dressed in Hannah Montana's wig, make-up and clothing. Miley knew, however, that it would be for the last time.
She walked into the transporter room and smiled at the tech on duty. "Do you have the coordinates?" she asked the tech. "Down to the pikota (a unit of measurement, similar to a millimeter)," he said. As Miley/Hannah stepped onto the pad, the tech pressed a button on his panel. "Transporter Room 3 to Bridge. Miss Montana is ready for transport."
"Proceed on her command," the voice of the Enterprise-B's Acting Captain, Zeo Pelekai, said. "Aye, sir," the tech said. "Transporter 3, out."
"Good luck, Miss Stewart," the tech said. "Thank you, Hitoshi. Energize," Miley/Hannah said. The tech slid the three activation levers on his panel upward. Miley/Hannah dissolved in the blue and silver shower of the Enterprise-B's transporter.
Jason Archer smiled as Miley/Hannah resolved from the Enterprise-Btransporter. "It is so good to see you again, Miley," he said. "When I heard that Star and the others rescued you from the Decepticons, Mel and I started crying and wouldn't stop for hours!"
Miley/Hannah hugged Jason. "It is so good to see you again too, Jason," she said. "So, how is Melinda?" "She is quite well," Jason said when the hug broke. "I heard you are getting married soon. To whom, may I ask?"
"To Carter Evans," Miley/Hannah said as the two began walking down a long corridor near the studio where music's biggest secret would finally be revealed.
"Ryan and Kelsi's kid?" Jason asked. "The same," Miley/Hannah said. "I mean, I had heard from Jonathan that you and Jake had to break up due to the age difference that arose in the years since you were taken by the Decepticons, but I didn't know you had already found someone," Jason said.
"Carter was right there when I was rescued," Miley/Hannah said as the two approached the dressing room where Miley/Hannah would be spending her final moments. "See you on the set," Jason said. "I can't wait," Miley/Hannah said.
But, as soon as she was left alone in the dressing room, Miley/Hannah took off her wig and looked at herself in the mirror. "Do I really want to do this?" she said to herself. "I have finally started liking the dual life again, but…"
There was a knock on her door. "Yes?" she said out loud. "Five minutes to show-time, Miss Montana," a voice on the other side of the door said. "Thanks," Miley/Hannah said. Miley/Hannah then turned back to the mirror and looked at the Hannah wig in her hand.
"But, I promised myself that when things were all right in my life, I would reveal myself to the world," Miley/Hannah thought. "Things were all right when I was planning to reveal myself before I was taken by the Decepticons. But, after I was rescued and I found out that Daddy had died while I was in stasis, I decided things were no longer so."
"But now that the hole Daddy had left has been filled by Carter, I have decided that things will be as all right as they will ever be," Miley/Hannah thought as she put her wig back on.
"We're ready for you, Miss Montana," the voice from earlier said. Miley/Hannah looked at herself in the mirror then smiled. "Let's do this," she said out loud.
Just off the set, Miley/Hannah watched on a monitor as Jason went through his monologue. Then, he said, "We've got an amazing show for you tonight," he said. "Hannah Montana is here, in her first television appearance since her recent rescue. In fact, she has informed me that she intends to do something that she was going to do before her kidnapping nearly 20 years ago."
After a pause in taping (where a commercial break would be in the broadcast later that night), Jason was at his desk. Miley/Hannah continued to watch on the off-stage monitor. "My first guest tonight made her shocking debut back in 2005 and quickly became one of the top musical acts in the world before her kidnapping by the evil Decepticons nearly 20 years ago. Recently, a group calling themselves 'Team Chipmunk: The Next Generation' rescued her and allowed her to resume her career. Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome Hannah Montana!"
Miley/Hannah walked on stage to a standing ovation from the studio audience. After shaking Jason's hand, she sat down in a chair next to Jason's desk. "It is an enormous honor that you have chosen this show to be your first appearance on television since the end of your harrowing ordeal, Miss Montana," Jason said.
"Well, you're welcome, Jason," Miley/Hannah said. "I have been a big fan of yours going all the way back to your Jason's Jam-Time and Price is Right days, so that is why I chose you."
"When you agreed to appear on the show tonight, you said you had to do something—something that you actually intended to do on this very program nearly 20 years ago," Jason said. "Care to elaborate?"
"Yes, Jason," Miley/Hannah said. She stood from her chair and made her way over to the bandstand, where a microphone had been set up. "When I made my debut back in '05, I was leading a double life. I became Hannah Montana in order to allow me to live my dream of being a rock star…"
Miley/Hannah took a deep breath then took the wig off. "…while still allowing me to live a quote-unquote 'normal' life," she said. "My name is Miley Stewart, daughter of the late Robbie Ray Stewart, and I am Hannah Montana."
"In fact, I have a new song I wrote for this occasion," Miley said. "But I need someone to sing it with."
Back aboard the Enterprise-B, Carter stood and listened to Miley's speech on his Gokaiphone. Then, when she said "But I need someone to sing it with," he gestured for Hitoshi to energize the transporter. The beam brought him onto the stage right next to Miley.
"Perfect timing," Miley said before she kissed Carter. "Miley, hun, you forgot this," Carter said before putting Miley's engagement ring on. "Thanks, Carter," Miley said. "Now, let's knock them dead."
That night, back aboard the Enterprise-B, Miley watched the broadcast of Jason's show and smiled as she felt a huge weight being lifted from her shoulders. She no longer had to worry about keeping the secret of her double life. She could just be herself.
