"There's a transmission coming through for you Doctor Kingston." A voice came over the comm system.

"I'll take it on here," he replied as he activated the viewscreen in his officer which came to life with a surly looking Klingon. "Klagg. What can I do for you?"

"That's Commander Klagg to you human! You should speak to me with more respect!"

Kingston sighed, he did not like this Klingon but he was a necessary evil that had to be tolerated. "Yes, you're right. Commander. Our usual shipment is due in 2 days.."

The Klingon cut him off "I know you've been in contact with Starfleet! Do not insult my intelligence by denying it!"

"I would not dream of it. Yes, I contacted Starfleet for a routine status report." He lied, hoping he was covering well. "Look, Commander. How about we double your payment for this shipment, to offset any inconvenience on your part."

The Klingon's temper seemed to subside as he thought. "Perhaps that would suffice.... For now."

The viewscreen went blank.

Kingston let out a sigh of relief. Klagg was easy enough to please and for the time being, keeping him sweet was more important than anything. The shipment he was providing was invaluable for their research. For his research.

The comm signal activated again. "Doctor Kingston, just to let you know I'll be leaving in a couple of hours. Is there anything you need bringing back?"

"No thank you Doctor Fowler." He replied before cutting off the channel abruptly. He could not put his finger on it but she was acting suspiciously the last couple of months. Always very cagey about her work, viewing Brian and the rest of his kind as a mere science experiment rather than a living being.

Doctor Kingston allowed himself a small smile. Brain had been, so far, his greatest success which if he was successful, would be a game-changer for the rest of his species.

A Small white furry creature stirred in a basket next to his table and he looked down. "What do you say Brian? Not long now until all your brothers and sisters will be able to live in peace."

The small creature responded with one word.
