Stardate...Uhh... Kligel, what's the stardate? My terminal is still fried from the storm. Right. Yours is, too. Of course. Anyway. Stardate doesn't really matter. It's the second day, I think, since we were hit by an unmapped plasma storm. It took out the main computer and severely damaged one of the warp nacelles on our patrol runabout, the Missouri. I'm pretty sure we're in the Devore sector. Unless we got knocked really off course. Which is possible.

I have no way of contacting the Trust command at the moment, as our comms system was also damaged. We're working on bringing it back up. Hopefully navigation, as well. We'll see.

On the plus side? We seem to have found the USS Atlantis. Ensign Hawkins informs me that she was last seen in 2213, departing for a long haul patrol of the Beta Quadrant. No life on board. We're working on bringing her back online, at the moment, though, as she appears to be in better shape than our runabout.

Supplemental log, Stardate...Three. It's day three. We've brought the secondary warp core, left over from the original NX spaceframe, online in the Atlantis. It looks like she was lost when she encountered an unknown worm hole. Turns out it was highly radioactive, which explains why the crew all died. Not sure about why they disappeared, however. There are no logs after the event. One minute, crew and the Beta Quadrant, the next empty and the Delta Quadrant. Still, more useful than a 1930's Ford pickup.

We may be able to bring her warp drive up with the secondary core. We're looking at pre-recalibration warp 3, so not exactly fast. But there's the Delta Alliance research lab nearby. Ish. I think we can limp in.

This ship is weird, though. She's on the cusp of being what we think of as 23rd century designs, but everywhere there are signs that she's still an old warbird from our first years in the galactic sphere.

Kligel spliced a replicator from the runabout into the cafeteria, so we're at least eating well. It's spooky, though. And with only five of us, it can get lonely. Hawkins told us a story last night about her great grandfather, who apparently worked on one of these.

That's what we do at night, to keep entertained. I understand better now, I think, why the Subadmiral always harps on the importance of books. No holodeck, questionable power, deep space, and no communications. Our stories are all we have. I'll have to get some actual hardcopy books to travel with, for the future.

Log day six. It's quiet. Except for the times when the deck two EPS conduit overloads. Then there's a strange popping noise followed by ominous creaking. The math says we should have been at the lab by now. Clearly the math was wrong. Food stores are...good. I think we have three months worth of stock.

We're trying to get communications up, but this boat doesn't have subspace comms, so we're ghosts talking to the future at the moment. I'm sending these logs out. Lightspeed. Just in case. Attached is our current heading. I'm basing it off of the blue stare that's the brightest in the sky to naked eye observation. Not sure which one it is, since this thing doesn't have astrometrics for this part of space. I think the Vulcans had been out this way, but it WAS the 23rd century. They were still awfully tight lipped. Didn't even want integrated crews. That would be nice. Kligel can eat the replicated rations, but they can't make a supplement his species needs to avoid getting gassy. I love the man like a brother, but man, do his farts reek.
