ST:KAS101 | "The Longest Journey"

Updated: Mar 18, 2023

"Captain's Log, Stardate 95361. I knew Imperial Command wanted to send me into a trap. I should specify, not all of Imperial Command of course, but certain elements within it. I saw the trap coming miles away but they maneuvered so cleverly I could not get out of it. So I had to spring it. It is perhaps a twist of irony that the only people who died in the trap are humans.

That does not help us, however. The Kassandra is damaged. Our Chief Engineer is dead. The replacement assures me they will have systems back online within the next 5 hours. That's good. Since we are still looking for the root of this trap. We have a mission to fulfill after all. Even after informing Command of the obvious information leak in top circles, they insisted that I either come back with the mission fulfilled or return to an execution. Just as expected and just as planned no doubt. I'll have to think of who to promote to the vacant positions. Ironically right now the one I am most hurting for is the Chief Science Officer. With the signal we received just before the ambush being as yet undecoded, it would be good to have someone who could take charge of this. I don't like flying the Kassandra into the unknown. Not when we've already been waylaid in such a manner.

So, I have performance reviews to do. Mostly to see who is fit to take charge of a department for the time being at least. The joys of command.

In the meantime, I have made it clear that whoever actually finds any information about the signal will have a good chance of a promotion to begin with. A bit of 'friendly' competition never hurt anyone...right? I expect some results before we are ready to continue on our way. In either case, we are going to investigate the source of the signal once we are ready to leave, because the Empire does not allow for tardiness..."
