    The Station...
    "...One thing that I must mention was the replicator in the recreation chamber. There was a hand written sign not to order anything hot to eat from the machine. I asked why, a crewman told me to try it and see. I ordered a hot cheese sandwich. The crewman took hold of my shirt and forced me backward a step. The sandwich materialized in flames. Burning cheese sputtered from the opening to land on the floor. The crewman ordered the machine to recycle the plate and it disappeared. The smell of burnt food lingered in the room for some time afterward."
        The observer barked several times. "I ordered a cold cheese sandwich and had to wait for it to defrost somewhat before eating it. The crewman said the thermal control in the machine was broken. I asked him why they hadn't fixed it. He said, 'It is fixed, it didn't work at all for a couple of weeks.'"
    ...and The Patrol
        The Colonel spoke slowly. "We work for the President of the Federation, and various representatives of that office."
        "What do you do for them?"
        "Whatever needs done."
        It was Commander Klastor's turn to stare deeply into his eyes. "You kill?"
        "Whatever is necessary." The Colonel answered.
        "Political assassination. Military insurrection? Sabotage?"
        "We've even sung Klingon Opera. It depends on the mission."
        "But that is against the most basic Federation principles. The Prime Directive..."
        The Colonel nodded. "Which is why we don't exist. I have no record with any Federation organization. My people have never been born, my ship was never built. As far as your logs go, we are not here, nor have you ever heard of us."
        "The Unknown Warrior." She smiled broadly, "One of my favorite legends from the Home World."
        "I will tell you the full legend sometime, all of it, including the lost chapters."
        "You know them?"
        The Colonel stood and nodded, "I am living them."
