Navigation Officer’s Log

This month the ship was sent to a starbase to assess damages done by a so called comet, but upon arrival it seemed that there was damage done by photon weapons. After doing our assessment and assisting with repairs we have been ordered to go to another starbase to yet again assess some comet damage. Due to personal issues I had taken a short leave of absence and have now returned to my duties. Now that I am back I am hoping to find certain parts for the delta fliers to hopefully give them an upgrade and make them a bit more useful in the future. If I can get the correct scanner arrays we might just be able to make them useful for scouting missions, but I still need to run this by the Captain first. If I can get him to approve this endeavor then we could definitely gain some benefits. For now though I need to just sit at my controls and continue my work on some of the flight protocols to see if I can improve any of them. I may need to be in touch with engineering on some of these aspects as I should hopefully not cause any power fluctuations. Should I cause a problem, as long as I have engineering assisting me, it should be fixed quickly. First on the list is some protocols that were sent from Starfleet Command that should, in theory, help to widen our scanning range without the need for a new system. Again though I will need to consult the Captain on these first.

Science Officer’s Log

The science department attended the region 15 summit with our commanding officers and a delegation of fellow crew members, travelling on a shuttle piloted by the very adept Mr. Nelson, and enjoyed the company of fellow officers and crew from several starships of the region. The replicators made very tasty bagel jalepeno sandwiches and the summit did much to improve inter-region relations and diplomacy. It was a sweeping success enjoyed by all.

The science department has been working on various experiments and studies this month including, but not limited to studying Earth animals of the 21st century and the cultural practice known as visiting a “”zoo”” and its’ purpose in maintaining species’ and preventing extinction. We have also been focusing a lot of our efforts in preparation for upcoming missions.

Chief Security Officer’s Log

We had a very slow month, nothing to exciting happened. We went over some simulations in case of a Red alert made sure everyone knew where to go and what they needed to do. We also did a weapons check, count and cleaned all weapons.
Made sure everyone knew how to properly discharge and fire all weapons. We will continue weapons training into the next month.

Chief Engineering Officer’s Log

All of the teams have been extremely busy over the past several weeks as the environmental controls have been severely malfunctioning, causing extreme cold temperatures throughout the ship, sprinkled intermittently with fairly warm temperatures. It has caused many illnesses among the crew, so we also had to use parts of engineering to help out sick bay.

I believe my crew has sorted it all out, however, and we will move on to upgrading various computer systems for the next month.

Chief Science Officer’s Log

Our Chief Science Officer spend the majority of the report period in medical after undergoing major surgery. Studies were done on 21st century surgical and pain relief methods. A lot of reading and preparing for upcoming missions was caught up on, as well as study on the effects of home confinement on the mental health of a recovering patient.

Chief Navigational Officer’s Log

Navigation has not had much work done in the time that the Narragansett was stationed at Earth Station Titan due to changes in command. However as there is now an acting Captain, I will be working with the Admiral on plotting a course for a new mission to be started within the next week. During the time at Earth Station Titan, I have worked with the new navigation systems to better understand it, and to see if there are ways to speed up plotting new courses that may be quicker and or safer to travel.

Chief Medical Officer’s Log

Quiet month in sickbay. NP Tribble has used the down time to coop up in her lab hatching goodness knows what new scheme. I’ve been catching up with the administrative work, which is my least favorite part of the job. Interestingly enough, when I try to delegate, NP Tribble manages to be extremely busy with a critical juncture of an experiment. One of these days I’ll have a severe word… but I’ve also been using the down time to have a vacation from my Nurse Practitioner…
I’ve been told to expect new personnel before we leave Titan. I look forward to meeting them.

Chief Medical Officer’s Log

I have returned from maternity leave a few days ago. Captain Taylor and I welcomed a new cadet into our family on the 17th of August. Alice Amanda Taylor was 7 lbs 12oz. And 19 inches – came into this world kicking and screaming and hasn’t stopped since.
I find Sickbay in surprisingly good shape and we’ll stocked. Nurse Tribble said she was “just doing my job”. After I get caught up with patient files and reports I will definitely investigate this claim… especially since, among the reports I found that our Nurse T had completed all courses and tests to become a nurse practitioner. All that’s left is a 120 hours of supervised practice. Well, I suppose I can grit my teeth and bear it. I could, after all, use the help.
Chief Medical Officer’s log, supplemental
I walked in on Nurse Tribble wrangling a large, malodorous beast from the nurse’s lounge back into the lab… After having some severe words and issuing serious threats, I got her to confess that it was one of her continued experiments on fungi that… “got a little out of control” and had “a little stroll around the ship”. “He’s really just a harmless, fuzzy, perhaps a little too ambulatory, and overgrown mold…” After some more discouraging words and extra duty assignments she promised she would take better care to keep her experiments contained. I’m the last person to dissuade scientific research, but this is a starship, Not the Island of Dr. Moreau!

Science Status Report

It was an active summer for the Sciences division. Extensive research on wet pressure heat vs. dry roasting heat for primitive anthropology research on 21st century human habit of preparation of carbon based life forms for protein sources. Our results suggest wet, high pressure with CH3CO-OH and crushed dried herbaceous plants and NaCl, followed by dry roasting over open flame with a wet, spicy blend of fruits and sugars is a sensorily pleasant way to prepare the ribs of a porcine life form.

Some emergency physics research involving shuttle craft and low speed impacts with solid immovable objects. Our department is still recovering the resources from that one.
Many of our experiments resulted in trips to sick bay. Will attempt to do more virtual experimentation in the holodeck vs. Practical experimentation in the future. Except with that anthropological research because it turns out that primitive carbon based porcine life forms are delicious.

Working with engineering on severe temperature and humidity fluctuations, which seem to have settled for the time being.

Security Status Report

The security on our ship has been exceptional since my last report. I’ve taken a lot of time to do lots of security checks and fix things that needed to be fixed. I have had security personal go through guard duty and weapons training. We have also checked weapons to make sure everything is safe and functioning properly. All new security team members security clearances have been updated, and old security team members clearances have been revoked and terminated.

Due to insubordination a crew member was launched out of a torpedo tube and will spend his life sentence marooned on an unknown planted.
