A Third Option?

And here's yet another letter patched through the subspace communique:

To the High Priest, Elders, Janeway and Sisko supporters,

Some of us can't believe what we are reading. All of these Starfleet Captains are sell-outs. There is no difference between Captain Janeway or Captain Sisko. There is no real difference between any of these Captains and the leaders of the Dominion. All of them broker neat little deals with the enemy and everyone who supports them is a sell-out too.


On the other hand, we have Commodore Matt Decker. A man who was willing to give His life defending innocent worlds. A man who was willing to plunge the entire crew of the Enterprise into the mouth of the Doomsday Machine just to prove a point and make a stand. But no, He was stopped by Captain Kirk and Mr. Spock (the ones who sold us all out to the Klingon Empire some twenty years later). He had to go it alone in the USS Constellation. Typical.


Now, we know what you are going to say. Commodore Decker can't win because no one has heard of Him and no one will support Him. We say bullshit. If we can't support someone of a stringent moral fiber, there is no point in supporting anyone at all.
So we hope the Intergalactic Board of Elders will think about this and reject all these noisy cries to support either Janeway or Sisko. Commodore Decker is the only officer our consciences will allow us to support.

You people make us sick.

Signed,

The Brigade to Stop the Corporate Captains of Starfleet.

Our reply:

Dear Brigade,

Here in the next few days you will see this large cube hovering over your houses in the sky. You will know them when they call out to you, "We are the Borg. Lower your shields and surrender your vessels."


There's no point in trying to run. There's no point in trying to hide. Resistance really is futile as you will soon discover.

Sorry about your luck. If you ever make it back to Sector 001, let us know how it went.

I also seek the wisdom of Solomon Grundy!

Reliance on the politics of fear, as usual. Can't we bring Pike back?

Fear is what drives our lives in here America. All Glory Be to Captain Picard.

The Legion of Doom, the Borg, the Dominion- they are all coming for us and hiding under the bed is not going to solve anything.

We must prepare ourselves for what awaits us by suspending all constitutional rights and handing our government over to Section 31 of the original Federation charter.

Yet I believe St. Matt Decker is a worthy ally. His insanity, properly channeled, would be a boon.

Matt Decker. Now THAT, Ladies and Gentleman, was a suicide bomber. Gotta love a man with a strap-on warp core.
