If it was told to you by 3 strange aliens, than it must be true. I think you should do it !
Captain Duncan (BLACK UNIFORM) of the star-ship USS SCOTLAND promoting former first officer (LEFT) to captain and will take over his own command. promoting second officer Malcolm (MIDDLE) to first officer and promoting Lt. Cmdr. Macbeth (Right) to second officer.
In his new quarters Lt. Cmdr. Macbeth is visited by 3 strange aliens who tell him that he will become captain of the ship.
NEW CHAIN OF COMMAND
I guess we know who did it then.
He is dead
A couple of months later, Lt. Cmdr Macbeth talks to his wife, Lt. Miranda Macbeth and they hash out if they should do it and how to do it.
THE MORE YOU KNOW...
Bridge duty officer Lt. Jg. Banquo is alerted that an emergency airlock on deck 18, section 12 has been opened and a man was blown out into space, come to find out it was the captain.
ON SCREEN- OH MY, THE CAPTAIN HAS BEEN KILLED
SIR, sensors show that the hatch was opened from the inside manually, video footage not available. this was intentional, someone killed the captain
Chief Medical Officer has pronounced the captain dead, the security officer (red duty uniform) reports that the 1st officer has fled to another ship and Lt. Cmdr. Macbeth gets promoted to captain.
Alright then that unfortunately makes me captain. Banquo, you are now a Lt. Cmdr. and XO and Macduff, you are now a Lt. and 2nd officer, i have to report this to Starfleet
Logs show first officer escaping to the USS ENGLAND
After a good wile, Macduff was able to get the security tapes available and he (right) and Banquo (left) watch Macbeth kill the captain by ejecting him out the airlock and intend on doing something about it.
