February 29, 2012 11:07AM
As it turned out, the Carina's closest point of escape was 9 minutes away. A narrow margin with only 10 minutes of helium available, but acceptable given no alternative. It took another hour to calibrate the helium system, and to modify the impulse engines to reduce their effect on the gas cloud. Eventually however, the ship was ready to make its attempt at breaching back into normal space. As Captain Walter summoned all hands to their action stations, he wondered what would happen if they failed. The ship could become stranded forever, and they would all eventually die, but likely not before going insane. Pushing the thought out of his mind, he keyed the comm and gave his orders to engineering to begin the gas venting procedure. It would take a moment for the gas to surround the ship's hull.

At the same time, he ordered Lieutenant Stevenson to activate the deflector dish. When all was set, the ship made its first forward progress in some time. It was slow at first, but eventually they brought their speed up as high as they could push it without rupturing the gas cloud. The count down had begun, and the distance to the hole in null space ticked down. Charlie could feel sweat trickle down his back. He was sure the crew felt the same. All except maybe Zar and Larson who he had ordered to keep looking into Xol's quarters. Escaping was important, but so too was the health of his crew, and that was the responsibility of the XO and CTO in any case. Besides, they weren't immediately needed.

The gas cloud began to dissipate as they got closer to the exit. Charlie could feel as much as hear the engine straining to keep traction as they pushed themselves to that little hole into real space. For a moment he thought they were going to fall short. Everyone held their breath. Suddenly, the Carina's engines were no longer straining. The ship was rocketing clear of the anomaly, now closed behind them. The stars were back, and the ship was under full power again. Astrometrics reported they were actually inside Federation space now, just beyond the LFS border. That set them up for a 12 hour run back to Earth at maximum warp. Charlie ordered the course, and then stood the crew down from their stations congratulating them all. With the immediate threat over, Charlie's adrenaline died away and he felt himself sagging into his seat. It all could have gone so wrong, and yet once again they beat the odds. He headed for his quarters.
