Answer to "Broken Bow" Script: B.T.A.

Postby Kt'Hyla » Wed Aug 22, 2001 11:27 pm

After reading the script for the first Enterprise episode, "Broken Bow", I had a few issues to address...


B.T.A

A Script by Kt'Hyla 01/08/22

FADE IN:

INT. RICK BERMAN'S OFFICE, RECEPTION AREA - DAY

A SECRETARY is in the process of answering incoming calls at her desk.

ELEVATOR DOOR (OPTICAL)

BLUE FLASHING LIGHT pours out between the space between the doors. We
hear an elevator bell ding, and the doors open, revealing two men in
STARFLEET UNIFORMS. They are Agents PRESTON and LOGAN, members of
STARFLEET BUREAU OF TEMPORAL AFFAIRS. They head for BERMAN'S inner office.

SECRETARY
(agitated) Gentlemen, you can't go in there!

LOGAN
T 'n A, ma'am. Official business.

PRESTON
(to LOGAN) I wish you wouldn't call it that.

LOGAN smiles. Both enter BERMAN'S office and close the door behind them.

INT. BERMAN'S INNER OFFICE - DAY

BERMAN
(looks up at the two intruders) I'm sorry, guys, casting's in Building G.
Nice costumes, though.

PRESTON
We're with Starfleet Bureau Of Temporal Affairs. This is Agent Logan, and
I'm Agent Preston-

BERMAN
(inturrupting) Like out of that Tribble episode, yeah, I know. Look, guys,
I'm very busy here, my receptionist can help you with anything you need.

LOGAN
... Right. Sir, we're here on business of the utmost importance.

BERMAN
(impatient) Make it quick.

PRESTON
Years ago our researchers found a corolation between our universe and another
parallel one, namley yours.

LOGAN
In your reality, our universe is depicted in a television show that you call
"Star Trek". Our research teams found that whatever was aired on this show
would dictate the course of our own history-

BERMAN
(inturrrupting) I'm calling security...

Berman picks up his phone. A puzzled look comes over his face as he realizes
there's no dial tone. He stands to head for the door.

BERMAN
(yells) Daphnie, call-

Berman is cut off as Logan pushes him back into his chair.

LOGAN
(meanacingly) Ooo... I've waited a long time for this...

PRESTON
Cut it out. We don't have time for this.

Logan reluctantly backs off.

PRESTON
(picking up where they left off) The Federation Council found this accptible, as
long as the timline were kept reasonably constant. When Roddenberry was in charge,
things were quite fine, good in fact. However, after his death, problems started.
Ships would unexpectedly be flung halfway across the Galaxy, major wars errupted...

LOGAN
(angry) I lost some damn good friends in those Dominon Wars of yours...

PRESTON
(cutting Logan off) ...But we took it all in stride. However, now, with this new
"Broken Bow" episode...

LOGAN
(screaming) YOU'VE DESTROYED OUR ENTIRE CIVILIZATION!!!

Berman is a little disturbed by this situation, thinking he's got a pair of
disgruntled Trekkies on his hands. He decides to play along.

BERMAN
I destroyed the Federation with a script I produced... Uh huh...

PRESTON
You see, the formation of the United Federation Of Planets hinged on the Earth-
Romulan war. Since Earth successfuly meets the Klingons BEFORE they meet the
Romulans, the Klingons decide they want in on the war...

LOGAN
...Since they hate the Romulans...

PRESTON
..And so the Romulan Empire is defeated by both the Humans and Klingons.

Logan leans forward on Bermans desk, putting his face closer to his. Berman
is quite visibly put off by this.

LOGAN
Then... then since the Federation doesn't exist, Earth , of which doesn't have a
powerful military or political presence yet, is absorbed into the Klingon Empire!
(ranting)
No Federation! No Starfleet! Klingons and Ferengi running the place! ABSOLUTE
ANARCHY!!!

PRESTON
(trying to calm Logan)
Woah, cool it! No need to blow a module!

LOGAN
(calms, breathing deeply) Sorry. You know how I get about this...

BERMAN
(confused) Okay... continuity check! If the Federation doesn't exist, how do you
two exist?
(smiles, confident he's got them)

LOGAN
BTA Headquarters has a subspace temporal shielding system in place. Remember when
Captain Sisco was sent to the Bell Riots and the Defiant remained in the alternate
timeline? We based the system on that "glitch".

BERMAN
(far from convinced) Uh huh.

PRESTON
Anyhow, since our continuum has been comprimised, we're authorized to whatever is
in our power to restore the timeline...

BERMAN
So why didn't you just go back to sometime before I finalized the script and do
something then? Wouldn't it make more sense?

LOGAN
Usually we would, but without the rest of the Federation and Starfleet, it took us
a great deal of research to just find out what happened in the first place...

PRESTON
And even then, we've used most of our remaining resourses trying to get personel
back to the proper temporal co-ordinates to affect anything. We've had 47 casualties
on this mission so far...

LOGAN
...And this is the closest we've gotten to you yet. It's our last chance, so we have
no choice but to pull a "Kirk".

BERMAN
a "Kirk"?

PRESTON
Like the captain.

BERMAN
(getting it) Oh... Look, guys, this is all and fun, but I have to ask you to leave,
now, BEFORE I call the cops...

PRESTON
(exasperated) Figures. Tewnty-first century attitudes... Luckily we were studying a
Borg Drone's temporal systems when the continuity shift took place...

LOGAN slaps his communicator.
Seven, would you please join us.

SEVEN-OF-NINE opens the door and enters, closing the door behind her. Before the door
is closed we catch a glimpse of the secretary slumped over her desk. Seven-of-Nine
strides over to where Berman is sitting behind his desk.

BERMAN
Jeri, what a suprise! I didn't know these two gentlemen were-GRRBBBLLLPLTH!!!

CLOSE-UP of Berman's neck as Seven-of-Nine's nanoprobe injectors are sliding out
of his neck

SEVEN-OF-NINE
You will comply.

Logan leans over to a gibbering Berman, who is in the proccess of being assimilated
into a Borg Drone.

LOGAN
(quietly to Berman) Okay... Here's what you're going to write next...

FADE TO BLACK
