A vulcan appeared on the view screen.
,,Hello captain Picard. I am captain Urik. We are going to assist escort you to the...''
,,You are only gonna escort the Clevelend and the Whinshester. We have to help our friend... Erm... on Lanus-7. We will rendezvous with you at the Darius system.''
,,As you wish. Live long and prosper!''
,,Peace and long life mister Urik.''
The Vulcan's picture disappeared and turned into space.
,,Miste Crusher set course for Lanus-7.''
,,Aye, aye!'' The Enterprise jumped to high warp.
The Enterprise approached the orbit of Lanus-7. It was a dark world. Covered with ice and snow. It gets only twenty minutes of sunlight a day. Even the stars can't be seen because of the huge gas giant which Lanus-7 is orbiting. The only source of light was the starbase orbiting Lanus-7.
,,Hail the starbase!''
The captain addressed the admiral in the base:
,,Hello admiral! Can we go on the surface of the planet?''
,,Hi Captain! Let me just check... Hmmm... Yes you can. But you better watch your back. It's a living hell down there! I've been there once.''
,,I'll keep that in mind.''
,,Goodbye admiral! Away team Delta, with me.''
,,But sir!'' Riker stood up.
Riker sighed. Worf, the Captain, Geordi, Doctor Crusher and her assistant Allysa Ogawa met in the transporter room. Allysa and Doctor Crusher were carrying class 5 med cits, Worf carrying a phaser rifle and a phaser and Geordi carrying Data. They stepped on the pads.
,,Beam us down Mister O'Brien.''
,,Aye sir... Good luck!''
The away team beamed down. The city was large but crowded. It was protected from the freesing outside temperature by a huge forcefield.
,,I am transferring the position of the lab to your tricoders.'' the computer/Data said.
,,But be careful. This man has been working on this prototype for thirty years. He might be a little, how you humans say: ,,on edge''. And he is an Andorian.''
,,Thank you Data.''
Geordi looked at his tricoder. He pointed North.
Everyone had a hard time getting through the crowd. Some small Ferengi boy even tried to rob doctor Crusher.
,,Be careful Doctor.''
She picked the little boy up.
,,Where is your mother?''
,,Like it's any of your business hu-man!'' he managed to kick himself out of Doctor Crusher's hands and run of. She sighed.
,,Just ten yards away.'' Geordi pointed.
They entered a small alley.
,,Where is it?'' Worf asked.
,,It should here...'' he pointed at a brick wall.
,,Nothing... Wait! There's a door behind this. My implants are picking it up.''
,,Should we knock?'' Doctor Crusher offered.
Geordi knocked on the door.
,,Yes!'' a deep voice shouted. It sounded busy.
,,Can we come in?''
,,Are you Klingons?''
,,Worf, wait for us behind the corner.'' the captain whispered.
,,No, we're not.'' the door opened. Behind it was an old man in his sixties pointing a Romulans disruptor at the crew. When he saw that they were not Klingons he put the disruptor on a metal table.
,,What do you want?'' He asked angrily.
,,A new body for our android friend trapped in this computer.''
,,Well y' aren't gettin' one!''
,,Doctor Rauuk, it's me, Data!''
,,Data? I've been waiting for you a long time! How much has it been? Two, three years?''
,,Oh... Well i wasn't good at remembering years after all. Come with me! I finished the prototype a few months ago!''
They walked through Rauuk's house. It was dark, cold, but clean. They entered a small room. In it only a table with a perfectly human looking android body. Long, dark hair, pink skin, blue eyes.
,,Here it is data! Your father sent hundreds of probes holding the information i needed to create this prototype. It has pain sensors, an emotion chip and a system enabling your body to grow hair. Now i shall download you're program into this body!''
,,Thank you doctor. I am... happy for this.'' Data lowered his voice.
The doctor nodded and connected the computer with the prototype. A few seconds later. The prototype stood up.
,,I can move!'' he shouted. The doctor slapped Data.
,,Ouch! Why did you do that for?''
,,It's working!'' the doctor jumped ,,After thirty years of building it's finally working... Captain can I ask for one favor?''
,,Can I join your ship's crew? I have a degree in engineering!''
,,Well I suppose I can pull some string.''
,,Yay! Thank you!''
,,Beam us up O'Brien.'' the captain ordered.
End of part four.
