Captain Carmelita Chambers recording:

The Artemis has been in the Vindarin system for several weeks now. I’ve enjoyed getting to know the Governor and First Lady and diplomatic relations are strong thus far with the people of the system and the crew of the Artemis.

The Governor reported pirate activity within their space. While patrolling a resource rich asteroid field the Artemis was attacked by a… unknown alien creature. Several attacks by the creature drained the shields but caused minimal damage. There were thankfully no injuries or casualties reported. We were unable to out maneuver or out run the creature, but vented some warp plasma and out a bad taste in the creatures mouth, allowing the ship to escape.

My Chief Engineer, Lieutenant Triton and his team have been working along side the Vindarins on their orbital refinery station, assisting with repairs and minor upgrades.

Several other members of my senior and junior staff are on away missions. The circumstances require they make no contact with the Artemis. I think any Captain worries when they send their crew on dangerous missions. It’s even harder when they are split into several locations and you know you can’t have the ship in more than one location at a time.

It’s just a game of wait and see for the rest of us. I would like to see a peaceful outcome in all of this, but like always we as Starfleet Officers we are always prepared for whatever challenges the universe puts before us.
