First things first, tech updates.
Second: imma writte some long text (i hope, i want it to be good)
As Axar had thinked many times before, the Entrox was indeed one of the most beutiful sights in the universe. Sleek, capable of travelling hundreds of trilions of light years in a blink of an eye, and most importantly, it has been his home. 'One of the few to be honest', he thought, as he remembered the state of his universe. It was dying. He was living at the universe Eleventh Hour, and he had a feeling he didn't wanted to the see the Twelve Hour. As his ship left a interspatial rift, a galaxy could be seen in the windown.
"Rinix, scan the continuum, how long this galaxy has before its consumed?"
Rinix, his first officer and only other crewmember at the command center of the Entrox, quickly open the sensor data,
"132 years before its consumed by the dark energy."
Axar stopped to think, 132 years was enough for build a few more ships, maybe finally getting the resouces his people so desperately needed, his decisions would affect his people survival, so he needed time to think. Rinix turn around, looking at Axar thinking face 'A classic', he thought, as he had seen Axar do the same face dozens of times before.
"Contact the rest of the Empire, we will suggest this galaxy to be settled, at least for the time being.", Axar suddenly said, confident.
"The sensors are picking up a signal."
Axar and Rinix consoles litted up as Rinix analyzed the data before him.
"What is it?", Axar asked. Rinix was analyzing the data as fast as he could.
"It's a ship.
"Timeframe?", Axar demanded.
"I do not know. The ship is unlike anything from the past or the future. Our scans indicate it might not be natural from our space/time continuum."
Axar face almost litted up like the console. He was in front of the unknown, as he did many times, but he was never tired of the feeling of looking at the unknown.

On the bridge of the Nivanda, Admiral Kriz hold on his chair, as he atempted to not vomit, 'I underestimated the effects for sure.', he thought, as the medical team left the turbolift, cleary being affected themselves.
"All decks report"
The reports start coming in. Julia, his first officer, anylized it, almost hitting a wall when moving in direction of the captain.
"Minor injuries, nauseas. Engine room report that the M.E.D will be offline the next 3 hours."
"Thank you. Ra, scan our surroundings, i wanna know where we are."
Ra was give a gentle eye glow, as its host took over his body, as he had more ability with science. Ra was definitely one of the most interesting crew members on board, as the host, Her'shar, was a great scientist, and the symbionte, Ra, was a tatical mastermind, almost the level of Thrawn himself.
"Sensors don't pick up life signals in this quadrant, the galaxy seems to be new, or old, as most of its stars are white dwarfs, some near the end of their life."
"Is the M.E.D working properly engine room?"
From the communicator on his chest, he could hear the voice of his sister, the Chief Engineer.
"I can't find any problems, there must be something here."
"Could we be at the wrong time period?"
"I dont know, this is why this thing is a prototype.", she replied.
Kriz was worried, that drive should had left them near their counterparts from this universe, not at the middle of nowhere, quite literally. But he didn't had much time to think about it, as Ra echoing voice could be heard, and sensors began bleeping all over the place.
"A ship has been detected", Julia said.
"Red Alert, shields up, where is the ship?.", he said loudely, being answered by the symbiont echoing voice:
"Right on top of us"

Axar rose up from his command chair, swinging his hand over the controls, the ship command center walls vanished, allowing Axar and Rinix to take a good view of the ship below them. Its bird like shape was familiar, and althrough the ship seemed made for war, it's weapons were so weak they could attack him for the eternity and not take any damage, not that they had eternity to play with.
"Rinix, from where is it?"
Rinix had the same question stuck on his head, but he was sure that ship was not suposed to be there.
"I do belive it is from outside our continuum, sensors have detected it suffered badly during its travel."
Axar gave a cold look at Rinix, he already knew that. Axar was dying to explore that ship, he was not the kind of person who act for instinct, but that ship almost begged to be explored.
"Rinix, contact them."
Rinix thouched on the several floating screens around him, then replied to Axar:
X X X X
Kriz starred at the figure in his viewscreen, it looked completely alien, red eyes. For a few seconds, he looked at him, it seemed familiar, very similar appereance to a Zankaran. As no one wanted to speak first, he decided to take the lead:
"I am Admiral Kriz of the Zankaran Infinite Empire, identifie yourselves please."
The alien figure surprise could be seen through the screen, he answerd, with a somewhat confused voice:
"Im Axar, of the Zankaran Empire."
X X X X
Axar looked at the human standing on his screen, he was definitely not Zankaran, but the same aplied to most of his crewmembers, some he could identifie, many he could not. Axar was about to speak, chosing his words carefully, as to not possibly break any tenporal laws.
"Admiral Kriz, your ship is... peculiar, we cannot determine from where, or when in the continuum you came from.", not that he knew about any temporal laws that might apply in this case. Kriz let out a small smile, realizing the nature of the man confusion.
"Well thats to be expected, since we are not from this universe."
Axar was cleary intrigued, he had past experiences with multiversal encounters, he was chosen several years earlier to scout the mirror universe, to see what state it was in. No diference, dying, just like their own.
"Well Admiral, this is indeed a unique situation."
"Indeed, if you want to come to our ship, we could talk for a while."
"It will be a pleasure."
End of Chapter 2(im not sure if i wanna write more, my finger hurt xD)
Remeber to check the 2002 fan fiction Star Trek: Final Frontier, ep 58 "Eleventh Hour" where yesterday i found out Zankaran was a name that had already been used, but i swear i had no idea about that
