We are about 2 days from the Cestus System. We are heading to the planet Cestus III to meet with local officials to establish a federation outpost on the planet. The last outpost to be on the planet was destroyed by the Gorn in 2267, the Gorn still claimed it as part of their territory.
The nature of a diplomatic mission should be relatively easy. However this mission and the current status of Gorn and Klingon in the region troubles me slightly. The Klingons have been rather restless and aggressive lately and Command is unsure of their intentions. The Gorn, even though they succeeded control of Cestus III, has a stake and possible say in what goes on the planet as there are currently 7.2 million Gorn on the planet.
We must be cautious and aware of every faction that will be watching us.
