Disclaimer: do not own anything except the plot and my O.C. Star Trek is the rightful property of their creators, and Sherlock of sir Arthur Conan Doyle and the producers of BBC Sherlock.
As well the BBC Sherlock will be about 50 (from 2010 to 2063) years in the future for the time line to match the story.
‘Sherlock what is Mycroft going to do to you?’ I thought to myself as they put him to sleep in a giant freezer. I was going to lose him once again, and I really did not want that.
"John, he will be fine. I assure you. Once the scientists find the cure, he will be woken up and he will be cured. Besides, it was what he wanted," Mycroft said, as they froze Sherlock and I watched, helpless. " If you should choose to do so, we could arrange for you to be put through this as well."
I was so tempted, but I could not bring myself to say the words. "I have to go," was all I said as I left. I went back to our -my flat. I was alone once again. I was stuck in this place while he was being frozen in time and waited to be woken up again.
~~~A Year Later~~~
“John, meet me downstairs in ten minutes,” came the urgent tone of Mycroft, I did as was told, and then I began to wonder what it was for.
I made my way downstairs and saw the familiar black car. I got in as the door was pushed open.
"What's all this about, Mycroft?" I asked in a voice that said 'I dare you to lie to me, you twit.'
"First take this, and then I will explain everything," he said as he handed me the two pills, and I took them as I saw he too took them.
Then we were speeding down the streets on of London in a hurry.
“Where are we going Mycroft?” I asked as we were going through a familiar road a year ago.
“We are going to the lab.” He said as it was that simple to dismiss me.
“I had scientist take blood from Sherlock to see what had attacked him, and to create a vaccine for him. As the progress went one of the scientist created a much stronger virus. Fortunately Sherlock only has the first stage, and this new stage has a tendency to spread and from what I see it has started to spread very quickly and I worry for our safety, after four days of infection it attacks the lungs and the infected die, it all starts with a common cold, and progress to hyperthermia and then the lungs collapse the immune system is very sensible that a cut will make one bleed out.”
“Now we will go back to the lab, and the scientist will begin the stages of slow freezing, he pills I gave you were to put you into an induce coma, and as Sherlock always said you see but you don’t observe. You would have seen the pills were the same ones that they give to patients to induce a self coma.
The last thing I remember was lying down on a bed similar to that of Sherlock’s and I saw four other beds already filled. I was out, and blackness overtook my vision and I was unconscious.

“What are we doing in earth again?” I asked my first officer, as we where heading to a secret lab, that they had found after many years, ancient years, that still held people in cryostasis.
“We are here to witness the first successful cryogenic freezing, despite their limited technology, captain” Spock said as we were directed to take a seat. While they read the ancient looking papers and then the doctors looked surprised.
“Captain, it looks like you could be of some help with the ancient looking PADD, maybe you can help us in figuring out how this thing is used, it looks like the PADD's we use but looks more complex,” asked one of the officers inside, as they handed me the device.
“Very well, I see this is… I really have no idea. The things I like are the books. This is beyond me. I have no idea. What if we wake one up, or what if we wake them all up?” I asked hopeful that I wouldn't have to make that decision, whether they were dangerous or not.
“That would be unwise, Captain. Besides, from the yellow looking papers near this one, I believe he is infected with a virus, and we can’t risk the health of anyone here.” he said in his regular tone that was indifferent to all things.
“Very well, I can get someone to help me, and I think that would be Scotty. He can help. He can get the information from this. Can someone get Scotty down here?” I said as I gave back the devise.
“Right away sir,” said an officer in red, and then we were seated inside the room. We waited for a while, until Scotty came in with an eager look on his that said that he was ready to play with the new device.
“Scotty, are you done yet? I want to know why they were frozen,” I said, and it did not matter if it came out as a whine, since it seemed like hours had passed, and it was just me and Scotty.
“You are highly impatient today Captain.” Spock said. I was startled.
“Seriously, Spock, don't do that. You nearly gave me a heart attack,” I told him, the sneaky Vulcan. For a fraction I saw that there was something of an emotion in his face, but it was replaced with his usual cold stare.
“If you need I can get Dr, McCoy to check your heart, Captain.” he said.
“Spock. When we are not on duty, call me Jim.” I told him.
“Very well, Cap- Jim” he said, and then took a seat next me, and watched as Scotty, was finishing with the configuration of the ancient looking PADD.
“Cap’n!” Scotty nearly yelled, with a devilish smirk.
“What Scotty, and you know as well to call me, Jim, Scotty.” I told him, as he was already eager to tell me what the news was.
“I got it, I finally got in, and now I have transferred all the information into a PADD of our own. Also one of the lads was suffering from a virus, that had outbreak, and had been the year we had made contact with Vulcan, the very first extra terrestrial contact. He had contracted it months before and had been frozen before the others. Many people died, because they could not find a cure, and apparently this lad was the first to be in contact, though nothing was confirmed until they knew that it was a new virus, so no one was prepared, but it attacked human systems like a normal cold that looks like something incurable.”
“I think as a way to survive they had frozen each other in a way that they could survive the out break, because they made the virus stronger, but this lad still has the weaken virus.” Scotty had said while he was still reading the information, and remembering the Terra’s history of first contact.
“Well if you had not read that I think I would not have remembered my history, so everything started with this guy?” I said, as I was wondering why I really didn’t remember that class, but I did remember what I did that night, it was amazing.
“Jim I believe that, you would not have remembered as you where more into chasing…”
“Okay, okay I get it, I don't need anymore reminders with my past.” I said as I interrupted Spock.
We went to Bones, with the medical information as he was reading the yellowish papers, then he grabbed the PADD and went out and had come back with the medicine needed.
“I think we should unfreeze them now, see what they know and how they got here because they might have been someone powerful as they where frozen and had extreme contacts.” Said one of the officers.
“I think now that we know they are no immediate danger we might as well. I am also thinking that we should have Spock the only one here with, Bones and I. We don't want them frighten of us, and we don't want them to die and well it has been over three centuries that they wont recognizes the new Terra.” I said, and at that one red officer told us that the unfreezing stage was already underway, and if they needed any help that we should call, and then they left and we where left with the unfreezing bodies.
“All right Bones get the tricorder and scanner ready, and the vaccine for the virus, that was detected, as well as for everyone else.” I told bones, as we where waiting for them to unfreeze.
“Why ahead of you Jim, I also have the Neuro sequencer ready in case someone goes into shock, at the prospect of living for over a few centuries, and all we do is wait for now, this thing is slow,” he said as he took to wait for the one that looked to be almost done.
We where about to have a glimpse at history, with these humans that where frozen. If they survive the first few hours then they would be history in the flesh.
They were all unfrozen, and I saw Bone’s working to see if anything else was wrong, and he gave them all the vaccine, and now we waited for them to open their eyes from deep slumber.
As we waited another twenty minutes two of the six where already stirring. We were really tired of waiting, but that was the bad thing of the first freeze, they where the prototypes, as now its like using a heating device.
