Chapter 3 - Captain's Log - Njessa Ajzure - USS Tanjura
Isi, it is hard to know where even to begin, what was intended as a simple shakedown cruise has become an unplanned and unprepared for exploration deep in the Lohalian Sector. If that was not difficult enough, the . . . effect that transported us here has compromised our dilithium crystals limiting our energy production and preventing us from achieving warp for the moment.
If I was superstitious, I would say this entire venture has been cursed. But I am not and it is not. The situation will be a challenge but it will not be an insurmountable one. This will be an intense test of the Inquiry-class and my understaffed crew. I have confidence in my crew but it will be a period of intense strain for us all.
Until we have a communication link, I will help Operations check the sensors, brooding about the situation and not helping would be a dereliction of duty.
