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.
