"Red alert," called Tolly from the center chair. His mind reeled. What had they stumbled across? Why would a Klingon engine be hidden on a planet, and why were they willing to shoot at a Federation starship? And what was the away team flying into? "Shields up. Lt. Sanchez, track where the incoming fire came from. Tachyons and metaphasics as before. Tactical, target phasers on the energy signature below and open a channel."
Seconds later came the reply, "Phasers locked, channel open, but there's no response."
"Unknown vessel, this is acting Captain Saffir G'Tollikos of the Federation science vessel Gibson. We're here on a a mission of peaceful exploration. However, you should know that I have trained ship's phasers on whatever the energy source is below. If you continue hostilities, I will order this ship to fire on it until it is destroyed. Respond."
