Fasten Your Seatbelts
"Sir, Deflector Shields 34% and dropping" Sulu reported as the bridge rocked with another hit from the Klingons.
"Evasive Maneuvers, Mister Sulu! Get us out of here!" Captain Kirk yelled.
"Sir, the controls won't respond!"
"Mister Scott! What's going on down there?"
"That blast damaged some of our main computers, sir. We are working on fixing it right now, but it will take at least three hours." Scotty replied.
"We don't have that kind of time. Chekhov, fire the Photon Torpedoes. Deflector Shields up" Kirk said.
"Ze weapons vill not respond, sir. Neither vill ze Deflector Shields!" Chekhov replied.
"Uhura, open hailing frequencies. Try to contact the Klingons."
"Yes, sir." Uhura pressed a few buttons on her communications console, and the Klingon Commander appeared on the viewscreen.
"Captain Kirk. Ready to surrender yet?" The Klingon said.
"Why are you attacking the Enterprise, Commander? We have not entered the Neutral Zone, nor did we shoot first" Kirk replied.
"Yes, but you have something we want. The medicine you are transporting to Rigel 3. Surrender it and we will leave you alone. If you do not surrender, we will take it by force."
"Why do you want the medicine?"
"Because, Kirk, there is an infection on my ship. That medicine will cure it. Surrender it now, or prepare to be destroyed!"
"Well, we aren't surrendering the medicine. The people on Rigel 3 need it badly, and you won't be able to take it from us. I suggest you leave us alone, or WE will destroy YOU. Uhura, end communication" Kirk said.
"What do we do now, sir?" Sulu asked as soon as the Klingon Commander disappeared from the viewscreen.
"I'm not sure, but everyone, fasten your seatbelts. This is going to be rough." the Captain replied.
"Captain, that is an illogical request, as the Enterprise does not have seatbelts" Spock said. Suddenly, the bridge rocked with tremendous force and everyone was thrown out of their seats.
"Well, Mister Spock, I think they would be very useful."
