Posted on Sat Nov 14th, 2020 @ 3:01am by Lieutenant Jesse Stone

Mission: Gods of War
Location: Captain's Quarters, USS Fauci
Timeline: Backlog

Jesse sat behind the desk in the captain's office. He tapped a button, "Ship's log, Lieutenant Stone in temporary command. It's been 4 days since the Roanoke, Ajax and Polk headed back to face the Jem Hadar cruisers. The communications officer has been monitoring the secure comm channel from the ships, so far, nothing, so I can only assume that the 3 ships have been....destroyed. There is also no evidence that the Jem Hadar ships are in pursuit either."

Stone paused the log and grabbed a coffee from the replicator. "One of the freighters developed an engine problem, which would have taken three days to fix. I ordered the crew to abandon the ship, and all the cargo was beamed over to one of the other frieghters. 3 fighters tractored the empty ship towards a nearby star, so that the ship would be dragged into the star and there would be no remains."

"The medical staff has informed me that many of the children are showing signs of depression because their parents aren't here. The counselor suggested that I, the acting commanding officer, speak to the children...something I'm not looking forward to."

"I've had the helmsman make random course corrections to throw off any chance of someone following our warp trail. I've also ordered that anytime there is a nebula of a large cloud, that the convoy travel inside it."

"We have almost reached the point where I'm going to order that the comm officer start sending out coded message on a secure channel to the Minerva."

He closed the log.
