FANFIC: From BeretWorld to NoWhere

“There is one location. We know it as Area 51 in America, Utah. They are preparing a massive slide. They are building Slide Generators and timers there.” Professor Justine Robson answered.
“So they are preparing new incursions. So many worlds will be at risk.” Archer said.

What you need to know:
What if you could go to different earths? Same planet, different dimension and universe. Rose Tyler has found the gateway.

The Eight Doctor is currently travelling with Fitz Kreiner. He is on a crusade to champion the cause of the innocent, the helpless and the powerless throughout the whole multiverse of multiple universes.

His fight against the Kromaggs leads him to a parallel world which is a Nexus of all Realities.

The Federation in Universe-001 has developed starships capable of sliding. Parships can Slide across parallel universes using ParTravel, based on Sliding technology. Captain Jefferson Archer of the Federation Parship U.S.S. Enterprise is himself from Earth-002 however which has disappeared from existence as a result of the Time War. The Federation exists at least 200 years in the future. The original WhoSliders’ timer was given to them by Archer. Professor Justine Robson is the Science Officer on the Enterprise.

The ape-like Kromaggs coevolved with Humans on a parallel earth. They have a military government, one called The Dynasty, and they have vowed to exterminate all human life on all parallel earths. They use pulse beams of radioactive green light which is dangerous to all life including you, as it is based on kryptonite. A number of the Kromaggs were so called deviants to their race – a genetic anomaly rumour says was created by the Black Guardian of legend. The Kromaggs have no females of their species, they all died out due to a weapon used to drive them off from Kromagg-Prime. They had set up breeding camps at first. After a lot of experiments, which included the creation of Humaggs – hybrid Human-Kromaggs – who were not sympathetic to the Kromagg cause, the camps were shut down by the Kromaggs.”


Aboard the ParShip Enterprise in the Present time (21st century)


Rose and her WhoSliders team had beamed up. Rose enjoyed these moments. Being aboard a large spacecraft from the future, in this case one which could travel from parallel universe to another too. It was so cool.
The ParShip could help Rose to find her Doctor. But there was a blind spot and they could not get there directly. But Rose would manage on her own. She decided to use Federation technology to send a message to her 10th Doctor. He should be able to receive it in the TARDIS, she hoped.
Meanwhile Captain Jefferson Archer explained the timeline situation to the 8th Doctor. It was part of a Time War, the Agent Tavlar had told him, and various timeline changes had taken place, so he relayed this information to the Doctor.
The Doctor seemed quite worried. “Gallifrey must be informed.” The planet Gallifrey in his timeline, had just recently been restored. He was unaware that Gallifrey had started this Time War.
“Leave it to me. I will let the High Council know. But we must try to fix some of these changes by going to a Nexus of Realities.” the Doctor reassured Captain Archer.
“Where is this Nexus, Doctor?”
“It’s on another parallel earth. Earth-812 or BeretWorld as I call it. Let’s plot a course, after Rose and her sliders leave, since that earth doesn’t have Stargates. I don’t wish that they get involved as it might destabilise the correct timeline even further.”


In Orbit on Earth-812 known as BeretWorld


The Doctor explained that the Kromaggs had made an alliance with the Goa’uld on Universe-777. The Goa’uld had taken over a large number of the Kromaggs as new Jaffa hosts. After being defeated by Stargate Command on Earth-777, the combined Kromagg-Goa’uld race would not attack Earth-777 due to the non-intervention treaty. A number of the Kromagg-Goa’uld stayed on Earth-777 as alien refugees. The remaining Kromaggs on their homeworld were left.

“What of the genetically enhanced Kromaggs?” Archer asked.
“I’m not sure. Myself. Why don’t you just scan this earth and see.” the Doctor replied.

A planet-wide scan quickly indicated what had happened. The super-soldier Kromaggs had taken over. They massacred the others and became even more murderous than before. Kromaggs were classically known for their illusion projection ability.

“Scan for sliding capability” Archer added.
“There is one location. We know it as Area 51 in America, Utah. They are preparing a massive slide. They are building Slide Generators and timers there.” Professor Justine Robson answered.
“So they are preparing new incursions. So many worlds will be at risk.” Archer said.
“What will you do?” the Doctor asked.
“We have to stop them”, Archer replied.
“Don’t you have some Directive which stops you from interfering in parallel worlds?”
“Not when these Kromaggs are preparing to enslave entire worlds. Not when our history does not report these enslavements at all. The Parallel Directive does not hold in that case. You have encountered these Kromaggs before, Doctor?”
“Yes indeed. In my Fifth Incarnation. It’s not a pretty sight. We must be prepared for their illusions – that is how they trick and win their battles. And we must avoid their green ray blasters.”
Justine said “The Kromagg inhabitants of this planet must live underground, I suspect they manufacture food and all their other needs down there. Our tests indicate the planet’s surface, lacks vegetation or animal life. It’s simply too barren to support life.”
“We must guard against their illusions. They can just place them in our minds.”, Archer said.
Justine replied, “Exactly. A perfect manipulation of our mind. They can create illusions out of a person’s own thoughts, memories, and experiences, even out of a person’s own desires. Illusions just as real and solid as this table top and just as impossible to ignore.”
Prochenko, who was an officer and pilot, asked “If we land and encounter them, we are liable to find their mental power is so great they could reach out and swat this ship as though it were a fly.”
Justine answered him “No that’s an exaggeration. They cannot do that. They don’t have telekinesis. Just illusion projection. We could just blast them away and destroy their main continent.”
“No need to be so brutal. Stop their projection ability in the region where we will be. You can do that by sending out this high frequency noise”, the Doctor exclaimed.
“Ok. We will do that, from the Parship itself”, Archer added.

The Doctor, Justine and Archer beamed down to the planet, near their main sliding installation.

Justine used her binocs to look around and inspect the area for guards. Some maggs kept guard but they could be defeated with the Federation-class weapons Justine and Archer carried. The Doctor refused to carry any weapon.

Successfully overcoming the Kromaggs outside, the trio entered the installation and made their way towards the central section, which was built as a staggering spiral staircase with many doors. This staircase was the same one known to pan-dimensional shamans, the Doctor noted. All the doors were sliding facilities to different parallel earths, which were kept open as required.Spiral-Staircase

The Doctor, Justine and Archer ran towards the staircase where they would place some explosive charges.

Unfortunately a huge energy “wave” came across them where they stood and reality changed. The trio fainted.

It was the Time War. Someone – Daleks or Time Lords – had performed some very serious changes to history and this was a huge timeshift. Things changed.

The Doctor was still himself – the Eight Doctor – and was the first to stand up.
He looked at his surroundings. The staircase was just a normal spiral staircase with no doors anywhere.
The others were shortly coming to. Justine was still Justine Robson, Professor and science officer.
But the other member of the trio was different. He was no longer the person he was. He was Commander Jefferson Arturo.
“Captain, are you ok?” the Doctor asked.
“We are ok, Doctor. Jefferson is a Commander, not a Captain. This is a dead end”, Justine exclaimed, “there is no sliding technology here.”
“It WAS here before but now it WAS NOT”, the Doctor said.
“I don’t understand, Doctor” Captain Arturo said.
“Not only that, YOU are not the person you were a moment ago!” the Doctor exclaimed. “You have changed.”
Justine protested that the Commander was the same person he was. He was the Commander of the Parship WhoSliders.
“Well he was Captain Jefferson Archer just a moment ago. Parship WhoSliders? Instead of..” the Doctor repeated, sheepishly. Then it dawned on him.

It was the Time War. The Timeline had been Timeshifted.  Even their weapons had been altered. They now carried laser-Stunners instead of the phase-guns. It looked like a reduction in their technological level.

The Doctor tried to explain this. Looking at the Kromagg database in this place, it was clear that the installation was an abandoned one. It was not guarded. In the new history, the deviant Kromaggs had taken over and eliminated the others, mostly. Rather than slide from BeretWorld, they went to a place called Knowhere – the head of a dead Celestial alien. The Celestials were huge aliens who lived in Universe-616. This one ended up becoming a reality nexus point and was present in all other realities at the same time.

These Kromaggs were planning to institute an attack on various parallel earths via Knowhere. This was ongoing.

One of those attacks had already been launched, to Earth-001.

The Doctor now hoped that his TARDIS was still on board the Parship Whosliders.

The Doctor and the TARDIS are the BBC’s.
The Parship concept, Parship WhoSliders, Captain Jefferson Archer, Commander Jefferson Arturo, Professor Justine Robson are mine
The Kromaggs and Professor Arturo are Universal’s
Knowhere and the Celestials are Marvel’s.
