Mission: The Futures Past. Season 1, Episode 4.

Henk waited with Beverly until the room was clear.
"You might know that just before I left the station to go to Earth, I got an offer from Starfleet to join the Achilles?", Henk said as he looked at his former CO.

"Yes. But remember that was twenty years ago for me", she smield at her old friend.

"I know, But.." Henk said as he struggled to find the words. "I met some peoeple here that I don't want to leave. I had a few eeeks to think about this, but now I might have a couple of days. I have no idea what to do."

"I can't help you Henk. In my time line you disappeared without a trace. I can't tell you if it is going to be a good move."
Her tone was soft and consoling, but she really had no answers for the young Lieutenant. "This is something you have to decide for on your own. All I can do is support you in what ever you decide and you can always call on me either now or then as a sounding board".

Henk just knobbed.
"Maybe we can help each other." henk said suddenly as he looked into Beverly's eyes. "What if we are brought back just a few minutes before we enter the Nebula. We could stop ourself from entering it and fight against the pirates. We could mke the events go as they should be. Stop all this from happening."

"To be honest there would be no need. Our ships were in the nebula within ten minuest of you dissapearing". She patted him on the shoulder. "So long as we can get you back to your time that should be enough."

Henk just knobbed.
"What if this doesn't work? What happends to you?", Henk asked. "Will you be court marshaled."

She let out a small humourless laugh and it frightened even herself what the outcome maybe on this. "Henk, regardless of what will happen after, I won't exist anymore. Be it through that Vesta Class Starship out there or through you making it back to your own time. Everything will revert and the person you see me as now will never have existed. Or like I say that Starship out there will destroy me".
The one thing she noticed now was in the years that had been spent between the disappearance to now she had become more cynical but remained as matter of fact about it as always.

"Then let's do this right." Henk said with a weak smile. "Let's repair the ship and do it."
