Star Trek: Pheonix-X
Flortarios III

(On the Pheonix-X, in the Ready Room)
*Ensign Dan(comm): Captian, receiving a communication from Starfleet command.
Daniel: Put it through to here.
*Admiral Cloud: Captian, have you ever heard of Flortarios III?
(Dun-dun-dun!)

(Meanwhile, in the MessHall... BOB and Night eat at the table)
BOB: See that Humaan over there?
Night: Yeah. Damon Smith.
BOB: He's a scientist here. The Xena picked him up from Flortarios III and dropped him off here to help study the anomalee.
Night: Oh that anomalee that appeared out of nowhere?
BOB: Yeah.
Night: I remember now. How do you know so much about the people on board? You'd think you check thier background.
BOB: Yeah well, as a Ferengi, you meet a lot of people. It's just what happens.
Night: Heh, heh... hmmm... he just glanced at us, do you think he can hear us?
*Daniel: Commander Gotens and ...BOB... report to my ready room please.

(In the Ready Room)
Daniel: Took you long enough.
BOB: Well, you never said immediately.
Daniel: ...Have you two ever heard of Flortarios III?
(Night and BOB look at each other in surprise. Dun-dun-dun!)

(Later on the Bridge... BOB, Night, Daniel enter from the ready room. The Pheonix-X is studying an anomalee)
Damon(at sensors): Well... this anomalee isn't as interesting as I thought.
Daniel: Maybe you shouldn't have come.
Damon: Yeah well... you know these anomilee's... they're anomilee-able.
BOB: That doesn't sound very scientific.
Ensign Dan: Captian, recieving a communication from Starfleet Command.
BOB: Well, it's about time. Now maybe we can know the plans to our next mission.
Daniel: On screen.
*Admiral Cloud: Captian Daniel.
Daniel: Well, waddaya want?
*Cloud: It seems you have a spy on board. He is helping the Alpha Quadrant Jem'Hadar gather information about our mission to intercept a trade.
(Everyone looks at eachother)
*Cloud: We have identified him, he is the Ferengi to your right.
Daniel: Security, escort BOB to the brig.
BOB: What!? This is perposterous! I'm not a spy!
(BOB is dragged into the tubolift)
BOB: I'm not a spy!!
(Door closes)
Daniel: Puh! Ferengi's.
Damon: Whoa...
*Cloud: Alpha Quadrant Jem'Hadar have stationed on Flortarios III. You are to go over to Flortarios III. It is a capital trade planet. The Jem'Hadar say they're over there to trade tulaberry wine, but from our sources they're accepting a pack of Starfleet weapons from a Ferengi troop. We have concluded that part of that troop to be the Ferengi on your ship.
Damon: They think the Jem'Hadar are accepting Federation weapons?
Ensign Dan: Looks that way.
Daniel: I guess we'd better stop them.
*Cloud: You know the procedure. There is also a chip with important info on it that the Jem'Hadar have. I want you to get it. Admiral out.
Daniel: Helm, set a course to Flortarios III, warp factor 6. Night, prepare a security-away team, and report to transporter room 3.

(The Pheonix-X arrives at the planet. Meanwhile, in Transporter Room 3...)
Daniel: I will beam down first. I'll signal when for you guys to beam down.
*Lieutenant Armond: Captian, someone is beaming out of transporter room 2. I can't over ride it.
Daniel: Hhmm... Energize.
(Captian beams out)

(On Flortarios III, in a room... A Jem'Hadar 3rd in command enters the room and sees the 1st and 2nd in command talking)
The 1st: Did our spy contact you?
The 2nd: Yes, he has meracuasly escaped and has reported that the Federation will intercept. Remember what he looks like?
1st: Yes, who could forget such an ugly face. Ah 3rd, you are here, I want you to lead the others and have them surround the area of our trade. We will capture the Federation team and the Ferengi's.
The 3rd: Yes Commander.

(On the Pheonix-X's Transportor Room...)
*Daniel: Daniel to Pheonix-X, Okay beam down the preset coordinates.
(The team beams down)

(It's after hours on Flortarios III. At a small base, BOB apraoches the door and talks into the screen)
BOB: I am the spy from the Pheonix-X. I'm here to lead the trade.
(Two Ferengi's look at each other)
*Ferengi: I didn't know the spy was a Ferengi.
*Other Ferengi: Neither did I. Let him in.
(Door opens, BOB walks in)

(On a nearby street, someone is sneaking around. The Jem'Hadar 3rd sees and quietly follows)
3rd: Hhmmm...that looks like some kind of human...

(On another street, a big hovering vehicle holding a big crate arrives and stops. 6 Ferengi's come out, and one is BOB)
BOB: Well?
A Ferengi: They'll be here.

(5 Jem'Hadar approach with weapons. Including the 1st and 2nd in command)
BOB: Do you have the chip with the random important information?
1st: Yes, right here. 2nd, check the crate.
(2nd checks crate)
2nd: They're in there.
Night: Hold it right there.
(7 Federation people approach)
Night: Ferengi, Jem'Hadar drop your weapons, or prepare unbelievable pain!
(A Ferengi aims at the Commander)
Ferengi: It is 11 against 7...Drop yours.
(BOB turns around and points weapon at the Ferengi)
BOB: 10 against 8...drop yours.
Ferengi: Traitor! Traitor!!
1st: Who are you? We were supposed to meet the spy from the Pheonix-X!
Ferengi: You aren't the spy?
Damon: No, I am.
(Out of the shadows the Human appraches with a weapon)
1st: Ugh, the ugly face!
Night: Oh my God. It was him all along!?
1st: This is enough!
Damon: No this is enough, we are going through this trade, BOB drop your weapon!
(The 3rd emerges from the shadows pointing a weapon at Damon.)
3rd: No, drop yours.
(Jem'Hadar 3rd transforms into Captian Daniel)
1st: A Changeling!
(A Jem'Hadar fires at Commander Night Gotens. Night ducks and fires back, stunning him. Everyone starts firing like crazy. Ferengi's except BOB run into the vehicle.)

(The vehicle starts moving out. Night turns and shoots the vehicle. The back end explodes)

(Daniel leaps and tackles Damon to the ground.)

(A bunch of torpedo rifles go flying through the air from the explosion, and BOB catches one. He opens fire at the Jem'Hadar)

(On the Pheonix-X)
Red: I'm detecting an explosion at the site.
Lt. Commander: Beam them out now!

(Federation officers with commbadges are beamed out. But BOB, Night, and Daniel are left. The Jem'Hadar capture them and hold them in a cell in an underground base)
Ferengi: At least we're alive.
Other Ferengi: That is not one of the rules of Aquisition!
BOB: I guess we did good? Not including this captured part though.
Daniel: Yeah. Damon thought he was free to make his transmission with the Jem'Hadar because he thought we thought you were the spy. You beamed down pretending to be the spy, and I was mistaken as the 3rd. Good thing we knew that Damon was the spy.
Night: The who was the what now?
Daniel: We have to find a way to get that chip in thier hand, there is some kind of important info on it...

(On the Phoenix-X)
Armond: Where the heck are they...?
Kugo: They're gone.
Armond: Keep scanning!
Kugo: Alright.
Armond: And are you free tonight?
Kugo: Huh? Yeah I guess...
Armond: Good! You and I are going out. That is an order.

(In the small holding cell on Flortarios III, Captian Daniel, Commander Night Gotens, Ferengi traveler BOB, Ferengi dealer Wenk, other Ferengi dealer Kahmeh all sit)
Kehmeh: You guys messed up our trade!
Wenk: Yeah!
Daniel: Be quiet. I should just attack you with an ear swab.
BOB: Wait. Everyone gather around, I have a plan. Captain, aren't you a god to the Jem'Hadar?
Daniel: Yes.
BOB: So why don't you do something Godlike?
Daniel: Oh yeah.
(The Captain explains to the Jem'Hadar that he is a God. The Jem'Hadar let him go but not the other prisoners. The Captain turns into Jackie Chan and beats the guards up. He later frees the others.)
Daniel: You guys, grab their weapons.
Night: Captain, I think I can reach the Pheonix-X from this console.
Daniel: Make it so.

(The other guards begin arriving. Daniel steals the chip from one of the knocked-out guards' hands)
Daniel: Commander, close those doors.
Night: I got it.
BOB: I don't think those doors will hold off very much longer.
Daniel: Take your positions and get ready to defend yourselves. How is it going Commander?
Night: I've almost broken through their computer. I just have to contact the Pheonix-X.
BOB: They are busting through the doors.
(Boom Boom! The Jem'Hadar break in. Phazers go firing everywhere.)
Night: I've got it.
Daniel: 5 to beam up now!

(Meanwhile, in the Pheonix-X's Brig)
Guard: Get in there!
(Damon is thrown in)
Damon: Owe! That hurt!
Guard: Be quiet!
Damon: I want my lawyer! I want matlock! You won't get away with this!
Guard: Yes we will.
Damon: Argh! If only I wasn't out-smarted by the Pheonix-X crew. Crud!
(The Guard looks at him weird)

(On the Phoenix-X Bridge)
Armond: Captian!
Daniel: Greetings. Are you flirting with Kugo again?
Armond: No sir.
Daniel: I think you were!
Night: That's not important.
BOB: Yeah, what's important is that I'm not a spy; and you've aquired the chip with the secret random information.
Daniel: Yes. Another addition to our collection. Good work BOB... I'm sorry the guards had to be so rough on you earlier.
BOB: Ah, it's alright.
Daniel: Well everyone. I say we just leave the mess on the planet for the Enterprise to fix. Heh, heh, heh.
(Everyone just looks at him)
Daniel: Helm, take us out of here. With attitude!
Red: Yes sir!
(The ship jumps to warp)
