Location: 14 lightyears spinward of SS Astraois, on the far side of the Takaar Nebula -- Back in the Astraios Sector, we had a brief rendezvous with the USS Marco Polo before they left at top speed to meet the rest of the Task Force engaged in sweeping the sector for pirates. We moved to 50,000 kilometers from the wormhole and remained at stationkeeping while engineering repaired our aft shields. This gave science and tactical time to launch a probe and gather data on the vortex. We were surprised to find sensor logs showed tachyon eddies at either end of the wormhole. Further investigation revealed an unsubstantiated report in the cultural archives on Astraios Prime of a Borg sphere being seen near Treman. The data is several decades old and it was dismissed at the time as a hoax. As we continued our repairs and sensor sweep, we discovered an object in the wormhole. Red alert. It emerged near our position and was identified immediately as the metallic asteroid that had passed us when we were lost on the other side of the vortex. We sent friendship messages on all frequencies. With the help of the probe we had launched to extend scanning range... we realized this appeared to be a Borg sphere. "Tertiary Adjunct of Unimatrix 300" hailed us, he seem perturbed that we had used their corridor without permission, and curious about our home.
LT David7 Bravin: Without a moment to lose (due to the imminent arrival of the third USS Mak'ala) both USS Mak'alas fired torpedoes towards the designated co-ordinates at the mouth of the wormhole. Science reported that the diameter of the wormhole had enlarged sufficiently for both ships to enter, which they duly did - with one using its tractor beam to drag the other. Once inside the anomoly, speeds increased and explosions occurred, resulting in the disappearance of the second and third Mak'alas. Eventually the one and only USS Mak'ala exited the wormhole. Just as the the ship was getting its bearings, two vessels appeared on the sensors. Fearing a repeat attack by alien ships the Mak'ala went to red alert. However, much to the relief of all aboard, the ships turned out to be UFS ships which had been awaiting the Mak'ala's arrival to join the rest of the fleet.
Location- unknown.... It was decided the best course of action was to tractor the second Mak'ala, extending our shields to protect it, whilst together entering the wormhole. We transmitted these instructions through the alternate LTcmdr Barbosa and LT Bravin on the shuttle, and asked them to dock the shuttle so we could execute this maneuver.... we also informed them we would be beaming a communications drone to Mak'ala2 in order to assist us in transmissions. Permission was given for this. Helm carefully turned our ship and we approached tractor range without incidence, and engaged the beam. We began our calculations for detonation of torpedoes and phasers while setting course with impulse engines for the coordinates science set as being the most advantageous. Science read a third vessel in the wormhole... data showed it to be a third Mak'ala, and it was determined that the first two Mak'ala's must enter the wormhole together before the third one exits. We are running out of time. Our tractor beam began to fail. Searching for a cause, it seemed energy from a singularity was affecting the stability of our emitters. It seemed to be a mellatic asteroid, passing near our position, raising some concerns. We didn't appear to be under attack however we went to red alert and sent more power to the tractor beam, attempting to shield both ships from any adverse effects. We swooped into position and prepared to fire on the entrance of the wormhole. Suddenly there was an explosion on the torpedo deck. Security, medical and engineering were sent on the double, two crew were hurt but torpedo launchers unaffected. Both ships must now fire on the precise spot, coordinates have been sent to Mak'ala2 and all are standing by. We all hope this plan works.
