Captain’s log, supplemental.

 

Events have taken something of a turn in the last twenty-four hours.

 

Only a number of hours out from our destination, sensors ceased the detection of the Gorn distress beacon. Upon reaching the location, a complete sensor sweep indicated no debris, no trace of weapons fire or warp signature decay. Nothing. It was as if there was never a Gorn presence there at all. Scans of the Gorn border indicate a distinct lack of activity, which is unusual for such a territorial species.

 

Upon reporting our findings to Starfleet, we have been ordered to hold position and await the arrival of the USS Scarborough, a California-class vessel carrying crew replacements. A number of our crew, including Commander Wilmer, have been swiftly reassigned due to the developing ‘Blood Dilithium’ crisis in the Delta Quadrant. Starfleet won’t allow us to take part in operations relating to this crisis due to our role ‘flying the flag’ in the southern reaches, so for now we will remain on station and ready. Ready for anything. Whilst Commander Dahl had been due to take up a position elsewhere, I have asked him to remain in his role as executive officer until further notice, which he has thankfully agreed to. His presence and lifetimes of experience will continue to be invaluable to us moving forward in such a potentially hazardous area of space. Who else will join our intrepid band of explorers, we’re not yet sure, but whilst we wait we will continue to scan for signs of Gorn vessels and monitor local communications.

 

I have a feeling we haven’t seen the last of the Gorn, in any respects…
