Story Notes:

Disclaimer: Don't own 'em, don't make money off 'em.

This story is set in Season 3, between "Harbinger" and "Hatchery." The given date for "Harbinger" is 12/27/2153, for "Doctor's Orders" is "unknown" and the next episode, "Hatchery" is given as 1/8/2154. Dates are listed on Memory Alpha's website. So "Reed's Raiders" happens sometime between those two dates.

Why during this period of time? I wanted the MACOs on the ship, and I needed Hayes and Hawkins alive. Also, although Hayes and Malcolm have had that big bust-up in "Harbinger", the two guys still aren't seeing eye to eye.

Also, you'll see a veritable who's who of characters, including some of Hayes's MACOs, Mike Rostov and David Kelby.

R/S implied (and maybe a bit of Hayes/Sato). TnT

How are our heroes getting out of this one? And what can Malcolm and Hayes do to retake Enterprise?

3. Chapter 3 by Lady Rainbow [Reviews - 0] (1952 words)

Hoshi gets to help defend the ship and Malcolm appoints himself chief of the "merry band of pirates".

And the Ch'Havran mention is from Diane Duane's books "My Enemy, My Ally" and "The Romulan Way".

Spoilers: A really slight one for ENT "Shockwave, Pt. II"

Remember those old radio programs, where you had to use your imagination as you heard the story unfold? That gave me an idea for this chapter.

5. Chapter 5 by Lady Rainbow [Reviews - 0] (1642 words)

The retaking of Enterprise has begun! You see some friendly teasing between the MACOS-something you didn't see on the series. Hayes has a plan to help Trip in Engineering...and he gets thrown for a loop by an unexpected "assault."

I always wondered why Malcolm took Hawkins's death on the Xindi Sphere as hard as he did (I know Malcolm considered Hawkins his "responsibility", as he confessed to Hayes in "Countdown", but still...) This chapter suggests one explanation why.

You find out where Archer's been all this time, and yeah, what the heck happened at the end of the last chapter? (grin)

This is the last chapter, where they retake the Bridge...and both Malcolm and Hayes each make a decision that will affect their relationships with Hoshi.
