Armageddon Game

This weekend I realized that there are only about 4 months left until the new Star Trek film comes out and I couldn’t be more excited. I really love these new Star Trek movies but it really makes me long for a new Star Trek series to hit the airways. I think it would be cool to see a new series set in the 25th century and leap forward where we can marvel in a new age of technology. This is just my hope and it probably won’t come true but there it is. Also I could not be more excited that J.J. Abrams will be directing the new Star Wars movie because he has done such a wonderful job with the new Star Trek movies.

Armageddon Game
Bashir and O’Brien are assisting two alien races to dispose of their biological weapons of mass destruction known as “Harvesters”. The T’Lani and Kellerun have been engaged in a war for hundreds of years and have only recently settled a peace agreement. The two men have worked with a team of scientists from both races to destroy the Harvesters and they succeed. When the last devices are about to be destroyed a team of soldiers enter and start shooting everyone in the room. In the process Bashir and O’Brien escape to the surface of the planet but some of the hazardous material has hit O’Brien’s arm. The T’Lani and Kellerun visit Deep Space Nine to declare the two men dead and they bring a surveillance video that shows they died from a security laser pulse that was set off accidentally. The crew of the station takes it all very well all things considering and Mrs. O’Brien elects to watch the video tape of her husband’s death. Meanwhile on the surface of the planet Bashir and O’Brien hunker down and start trying to fix a communicator they have found and O’Brien’s health continues to deteriorate. On the station Mrs. O’Brien notices her husband drinking coffee in the afternoon which she is convinced he would never do, therefore the tape must have been tampered with. Dax and Sisko go to pick up the runabout in orbit around T’Lani III and they take a little time to do some investigating. They learn that the tape was indeed tampered with and they pull up Bashir and O’Brien just as they were about to be shot by a group of T’Lani and Kellerun. It turns out that to ensure peace these two races want to destroy the Harvesters and everyone who has any knowledge of them to be killed too. The Starfleet crew escapes narrowly and returns to the station. O’Brien who is now healthy asks for a cup of coffee to which Keiko replies that he doesn’t drink coffee in the afternoon but he says he does. Bashir and O’Brien now seem to have a deeper respect for each other now.
