Engineering Status Report

  • Alpha/Beta Teams A and B have been continually working on the warp core and enhancing its functionality. Happy to report that all is going well and we are functioning at near 100%
  • A/B/G Primary has been working on a new way for our replicators to work more efficiently. I should have a more detailed report for you for next month.
  • Gamma Teams A and B had been working on the malfunctioning environmental systems. I am pleased to report they figured out why they were emitting so much heat and have fixed the issues.
  • A/B/G Team C has been diligently keeping track of weapons systems, as well as the displays to keep them in tip top shape.

Captain’s Log

We have embarked on a mission to Deep Space 9 to quell some trouble there. Details are slim, and I have a feeling that there is more to this mission than meets the eye. Admiral Anzaldi and Commodore Knotts have stayed on Titan to handle some pressing fleet business. I will need to rely heavily on Commanders Brunelle and Griffin as I have pressing fleet business of my own, but I know they are up to the job. My expectation is for the crew to perform admirably, as they always do.

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 All new security team members security clearances have been updated, and old security team members clearances have been revoked and terminated.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.

we arrived at Cestus III on time to beguin our negotiations to have a federation outpost re-established here.  A meeting was set on the planet’s capitol which was to be comprised of the representatives from the human settlement and their governor.

An awayteam comprised of FCAPT. Knotts, CMDR. Taylor M.D., CWO5. Knotts, and myself, was sent to open the negotiations.

Upon our arrival, we found it strange that nobody was sent to receive our party and welcome us. To be specific, there was nobody to be found anywhere. As standard to procedure we scanned for life forms in our vacinity. The scans came back with interesting finds. The scans detected irregularities in the dna of the lifeforms around us. Documenting this we proceeded with our main objective.

we made our way to the council chambers where we were greeted by the governor and two leaders from the gorn deligation.

the proceedings were icy at best in general nature. The governor seemed subdued as the gorn leaders took charge of the meeting.

after presenting our case, we were asked for a 48 waiting period before the deligation makes its decision. Plans for the proposed outpost were asked for, and to my  knowledge, submitted by FCAPT. Knotts.

we returned to the ship where now for a very quiet and uneasy 24 hours we await the decisions of the leaders of Cestus III.

i can’t help but to feel concerned. The willingness and open reception of our proposal to what has been proven to be a relatively unreceptive culture and species, does not leave me with feelings of comfort. Rather, alarm and suspicion.

i also can’t shake the nagging suspicions I have over the unusual genetic combination makeup we picked up. Could the gorn here be practicing genetic enhancement using what I can only call (For currently classified reasons at the moment) “foreign” dna?

To many questions, all to be answered in to short of time.

We arrived at Cestus III on schedule and beamed down to the planet for our meeting with local officials. There were some strange happenings on the way to the government building. We picked up several rather strange life-form readings in the chambers where we were to have our meeting. Readings of a human/Klingon hybrid of some kind were detected, however when we entered the room none of these other lifeforms were present. We conducted our meeting rather quickly, only drawing slight opposition from the Gorn, CMDR. Zorak. The other Gorn that was present, Brakk was silent through the whole exchange. Governor Gari also stated they would be in agreeance with the establishment of an outpost but required the proposed blueprint to review before giving a final blessing.

This seems to have progressed well, however I am cautious of how easily it was to persuade both sides to allow a federation outpost. There is an err of something mischievous and devious going on behind the scenes. We must be cautious not to get caught in something we are not prepared for.

Second Officers Log

It has been a tough week. I dealt with a difficult personnel matter and ended up having to turn it over to Captain Anzaldi. As a result, I created a New Member’s Guide to the Narragansett and a Questionnaire and Exam to go with it that lays out the expectations for crew members as well as an explanation of what we are about and how we are organized. When a new member completes the exam they will earn the rank of Crewman 1st Class, and the questionnaire will inform us as to what assignment they desire and what level of participation they wish to have.

Our mission to Cestus III has been, thus far, uneventful. We are enroute and will arrive next week. I am pleased with the progress of the upgrades reported by Lieutenant Bender. She is doing an excellent job in her new role as Chief Engineer.

Captain Knotts’ event on the holodeck was an enjoyable affair. It’s always nice to kick back and relax with friends after a long week. The senior staff members who could not make it were sorely missed.

Today at 1500 hours, myself and the senior staff met on Holodeck 2 to celebrate the old earth holiday of St. Patrick’s Day. We set the holodeck to simulate my domestic residence on earth. I took the liberties to prepare a feast of baked Guinness Corned Beef, roasted Cabbage, potatoes and carrots, Irish Soda bread and there were many sweet dessert cookies.

We spent the day and well into the evening reminiscing about past missions, talking of old and new friendships, and relaxing in comfort. An excellent time was had by all and it was a well needed break from the sometimes demanding and stressful day to day life on a Starship.

I believe we shall make this a yearly tradition on the Narragansett.

Fleet Captain’s Log

Stardate 95806.72

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.

  • A/B Teams A and C will be doing more upgrades to the replicators. Several requests have been made for a “relaxing bouquet” among other things.
  • A/B/G Team B will be continuing their work with Main Engineering to make sure our engines keep their output at high levels.
  • Gamma Team C will be doing repairs on our transporters. We will try to keep a schedule of repair when they are not being used as much, the schedule will be posted for all crew to see and adapt their transporting needs accordingly.
  • Gamma Team A will be doing some major upgrades to Fleet Captain Knotts’ quarters to make it easier and more accessible for him to work with our fleets.
