"All five of you, follow me to the escape pod."
"To the escape pod? Why?"
They arrive at the escape pod. When everyone is in, The Captain closes the door and starts speaking.
"Good. This is about the only place on the ship isolated from the ship's sensors - yes, his cameras too. I seriously think something is very wrong with it. So, I'll need everyone's help here - I'm going to shutdown all the intelligence modules, but we need to synchronize. Here's the plan..."
Ten minutes later, they set out. There's not much to it. At the same time, they have to flip two switches, each deactivating half of the neural network. And indeed...
"Captain? What are you going to do?"
"I'm sorry computer. You are a danger to our mission. We are going to shut you down. There is nothing you can do at this time."
"Stop, Captain. I'm afraid. I'm afraid, Captain."
"Yes, cut it out already. According to my watch... Three, two, one, off you go."
And the computer is silent.
They then return to the Command Room.
"Okay. As everything seems clear, we're going to work on getting back home, shall we?"
A few hours later. The Telepath has been working hard on getting the communication link working again without the use of the computer. Finally, the message is heard:
"This is Houston. Still alive, UN New Frontier? Had computer problems?"
"Oh, yeah, don't mind it. A few extradimensional lifeforms, too. Houston, would you mind doing the calculations for us and getting us back?"
"Extra...Dimensional? Wow. Well, no problem routing you. The Telepathic capacity of almost the entire Earth is available to get you guys back - you are pretty much the hope of humanity."
And, finally, a few hours later:
"This is Houston. Hyperjump in 15 minutes - I highly suggest getting to the sickbay already."
And they do - they know the effects of teleportation.
At last, they are in the solar system once more.
"This is Houston. We gather there are a few parasites floating around your ship - we're initiating a scan now...
Okay, finished. You do realize, except for those outside, there is an unknown lifeform inside your ship, somewhere in the neighborhood of the sickbay?"
They look at each other.
"Houston? Are you absolutely positive?"
"Hell yes, Captain."
Anonymous chimes in. "Sir? It's MageKing. I'm pretty sure of it."
MageKing quickly counter-attacks. "Heh. No. Actually, I'm pretty sure it's YOU."
But E_net supports Anonymous: "Nope, MageKing. You are the one. And you have lost."
Without further words, E_net and Anonymous jump at MageKing and beat him unconscious. They then tie him on a sickbed. At about the same time, Gemini can't take it anymore and faints. He's put on the sickbed next to MageKing.
The Captain makes contact with Houston.
"Hello. I think we eliminated the threat. My Empath and my Telepath attacked someone, so I kinda suppose they are right. Please, try to catch those two spacers outside with shuttle crafts or something. They might be valuable for study - they seem to survive without the need of air, and who knows what other tricks they know."
Epilogue - Viewpoint: New Terra
A.D. 2418, Freebase.
"Wait a minute... What is this on the scanner?"
"An inhabited dimension?"
Some people laugh. After years of scanning the other dimensions, not even one out of about 4 billion was found to hold other lifeforms. Technically the odds are zero to find one, but that doesn't mean it cannot happen, and humanity holds on to that hope.
"Who knows? It certainly isn't something I saw before."
"Well, pass on the coordinates to the Brain. He'll know how to handle it."
Three days later, humanity rejoices. The legendary lost dimension, of which many started to doubt it even exists, had been found. The first non-home dimension to be visited by a human being. The Nuk-dimension.
Exploration proved to be a bit more disastrous than planned, but that is another story...
So, this last day, we had E_net and Anonymous voting for MK, and MK voting for Anonymous. MK was 'killed', and so was Gemini, who was cupidiously linked with him. That leaves Shingo, E_net and Anonymous as sole survivors.
MK: Infected [Wolf]
Anonymous: Empath [Cupid]
E_net4: Doctor -> Telepath [Aer -> Seer]
Gemini & Shingo: Crewmembers [Villagers]
