Captain's Log, Stardate 120401

Location- unknown

Our ship, battered and bruised from a trip through the Takaar Nebula, attempting to escape from a hostile alien vessel, leaps into warp just as a spatial vortex appears and pulls the ship into unknown space. Now without warp drive, external sensors, or long range communications, dealing with hull breaches and other damage, concerned that the alien ship may be nearby... we decide to launch a shuttle and have it feed coordinates to our Helm in order to negotiate a course. We found an unknown binary system with an uninhabited planet, and managed to get there at one quarter impulse... but without our guidance system, our orbit began to degrade and we are in danger of entering planet atmosphere without shields...
