Mission: S2E1 - Secrets
Location: Kaz's Quarters
Timeline: Mission Day 99; 18:00

Mystery Man's craft was en route to Unity under cloak - following close behind the Vindex. He had realised that if he was going to get the shuttle from Starfleet's grasp then he would need some help from its current carrier ship. Knowing the Vindex was one ship he had a vested interest in he decided to put a call into his agent aboard the Sovereign-class starship.

Ensuring he wouldn't be disturbed and his channel was secure Mystery Man put the call in to Kazyah Linn's quarters.




The message alert resonated through the quiet room, jolting Kaz awake from the shallow slumber he'd slipped into at his desk. He rubbed his eyes as he leaned forward, pressing a finger to the Accept button.

"What can I do for you?" he asked before knowing who the message was from.

Mystery Man was pleased with the prompt response to his communications request. Choosing to with audio only for added security he gave Kazyah his request. Initially he saw Kazyah as someone to keep an eye on his daughter - but now he would have another use.

"A pleasure Lieutenant. I need you to do me a favour" Mystery Man replied.

Kaz groaned internally as he heard the familiar voice. A man he certainly did not want to interact with. "Go on," he said, not trying to hide the annoyance in his voice.

Mystery Man smirked. "I want that alien craft in your launch bay and you're going to help me get it. I need you to sabotage the Vindex's tactical systems before it arrives at Starbase Unity so we can avoid any casualties"

"Let me get this straight," Kaz said, adjusting in his seat. "You want me to sabotage one of Starfleet's best ships to be utterly defenseless? And you expect me to get away with it?"

Mystery Man brought up schematics of the Vindex on his screen as Kaz spoke. The ship was certainly well armed and it would undoubtedly be able to disable his Bird of Prey with relative ease.

"You won't be caught I assure you. There'll be ample cover in the next 24 hours or so to sabotage the tactical systems without anyone noticing. If you leave the tactical systems active then I'll have no choice to take it out myself...and I don't want to damage that vessel or hurt anyone aboard it. You know there's people on that ship who matter a great deal to me" Mystery Man responded.

"I'm aware," Kaz stated. He sighed, leaning back in his chair. "Is that it? No hidden extra favor you need?"

"Actually I was wondering if you could tell me your ETA at Starbase Unity? I see you've picked up some speed since you left Nova Mercia a few hours ago. Claudia's engineers appear to be very resourceful and intent on making me late for the party" Mystery Man replied.

"We've raised our speed by 0.3," Kaz said. "We should be arriving at Unity in two days and twenty hours."

Mystery Man smiled. "Excellent - thank you Lieutenant. If this comes off then I'm more than happy to end our little arrangement...unless you want to continue it of course. After all I like to do my colleagues a favour or two every now and again. Tell me - how is Claudia?"

Kaz rolled his eyes, "I don't wish to engage in small-talk with you. The ship will be defenseless by the time we reach Unity." Without waiting for a response, Kaz leaned forward and tapped a command, disconnecting the communication link.
