Spin-off 3A

Forged in Something, Part I

The B'rel-class I.K.S. Bochnah archs around in space, blasting disrupter pulses onto the upper hull of a T'varo-class Remen warbird.  Both ships the only ones in space for lightyears.

Menchez: "Full power to the disruptors!!"
Kent: "Even life support? Well, okay."

The Bochnah is torn into by two photon torpedoes, with one of them breaking through a weak spot in their shields.
Phine: "Ha! Hit them again. This time do it more angrily."

The Remen warbird Legion blasts more torpedoes out into space. The torpedoes hit the Bochnah as the Bochnah passes around again. The Bochnah manages to revamp their shield strength, but their upper hull, damaged beyond repair, begins to spill pieces out into space.
Menchez: "Those weird-faced fools! I mean look at them. Am I right? Fire!"
The Bochnah hits the Legion with disrupters.
Kent: "We've taken out their shields!!"
Menchez: "Excellent!"
The Bridge suddenly shakes like crazy, and sparks go flying.
Kent: "They've taken out our shields!!"
Menchez: "This is why I do not like reports after breakfast."

The Legion blasts another two torpedoes out into space, but the Bochnah quickly shifts itself to the side dodging them. The Bochnah then climbs over, dragging a dense tractor beam across the Legion's right side hull, busting hull fragments and large pieces out into space.
Tain: "We've lost Decks 13 to 15!"
Phine: "Damn that combat-competent Menchez! He's better than I expected, which was nothing, since I refuse to jump to conclusions. You get what I'm saying."

As the Bochnah is departing from behind, the Legion quickly pumps a quantum torpedo onto the Bochnah's left wing. It explodes in chaos, sending the Bochnah spinning away. The Legion then jumps to Warp 4, out of there.

Kent: "They're gone."
Menchez, gets up in all the debris: "Hu'tegh! They are a formidable bunch; not my cup of raktajino light, but they get the job done. Let's stop for repairs. Those dirt-mongers haven't seen the last of us."
