Sorry for the large size... but that graphic rules! cooltext.com is all I'll say...
Keira was left alone in her cell for a few hours, as Zack pondered what to do with her. Dr Hobbs had visited to administer the suppressants she required, but apart from that, the cell was silent.
Elsewhere on the station PsiCops demanded to know when their prisoner would be released to them. Captain Elizabeth Lochley was drawing closer and closer to the idea of simply throwing them out an airlock and being done with it.
Zack hit upon an idea. "Send her off to Minbar."
"What?" Lochley replied, aghast. "Are you insane? The headquarters of the Alliance are there. It would cause a diplomatic incident if PsiCorp tried to extradite her!"
"Wait, wait, hear me out." Zack replied pacifying. "The Alliance member states have the right to submit candidates to be Rangers, right?" He paused. "And usually its the millitary who sends them, or simply people who have expressed an interest. They have to go apply through their ambassador, with a signed writ by a Captain or higher in their millitary."
"And... oh. I think I know where this is headed. Sheridan would never agree though!" Lochley countered.
"Oh, he might." Came a soft reply from the comm-screen.
"Mr President!" Lochley seethed, wondering how Zack had rigged the screen in her office. "No offence, sir, but you dont know what this girl is capable of!"
"Maybe not. But we have a duty to protect her. Besides, it'll piss Bester off if he found out." Sheridan's eyes twinkled with glee at the prospect.
"We haven't even consulted her though," Was Lochleys next arguement, but it was quickly shrugged off by Zack.
"I'll go put it to her. She's afraid that there's going to be a revolution with telepaths... if we can get her out of the way, she needn't worry if PsiCorp come out on top."
"Zathras... does not remember. But if Zathras remember, Zathras will tell you!"
Zathras: "You are finite, Zathras is finite, this... is wrong tool!"
