"Mr. Worf, return fire!" Picard was fast running out of options, the Klingon rebels had somehow managed to force the Enterprise onto its impulse engines, preventing warp travel in the area. It was an ambush, hey'd trapped the Enterprise and were now already waning the Federation flagship's shields.
"Weapon systems inoperable, Captain," Worf replied from behind the command chair, "our shields were not raised in time to stop the initial disruptor blasts, damage reports coming in now, sir."
"Captain," came LaForge's voice from the engineering bay, "we can't keep taking hits like this, shield power is failing and we're already risking a warp core breach."
"Options, I want to hear them," Picard asked of all bridge crew, "Commander Data?"
"Sir, perhaps if we attempted to open communica-"
He found himself cut off by the ship's first officer, notably absent from the Enterprise's bridge. It was a gruff voice, accompanied by a view of the marine's face upon the bridge's viewscreen, "Lord Commander Picard, it is time." Brother Flavius' suggestion brought merely a nod from picard before the battle brother closed communications.
In the transporter room, Ensign Wright engaged transporters, sending the Marine to the Klingon vessels.
Federation history records the engagement at Kr'ching'toch, where the Enterprise engaged and defeated five Rebel Klingon birds of prey without having to fire a single shot, as a miraculous boarding action by the, now largely decorated, Macrius Flavius. The only surviving records of this engagement are the recordings taken of from the Enterprise's external cameras, which show a series of Klingon vessels exploding without having been fired at.
