Captain's Log, Stardate 130928

USS Neil Armstrong, 16 hours from Treman at warp 8. Problems with our warp core have given me the idea that we would approach Treman as a vessel needing repair. It's important our course seem as though we have not come from Astraios, so I ordered that we skirt the Takaar Nebula as the anomaly will cover our tracks and make it difficult to see us on long range sensors. Our NFG's are functioning but there are reports of strange behaviours and at least one fight with serious injuries. Science has come up with the theory that the Spouwwqna live in the Nebula, which makes some sense, and has suggested we help them return to it. I am not sure about this plan. These creatures killed hundreds. I have ordered Science to work on a new idea... how to make them visible to us.

Teams are therefore in Science lab, Medical, and Engineering, each with their tasks to accomplish. Meanwhile, we have had to reduce speed as we are passing through the massive asteroid belt that sits on the edge of the Nebula. Communications are down... just as well as we don't need anyone from Treman coming across our signals.

Background- Encrypted orders were given to the USS Armstrong (Galaxy Class) to proceed to the Treman system, 4 LY away from SS Astraios, with the USS Ghana (Excelsior Class) and USS Colossus (Sovereign Class). There are grave concerns that the Spouwwqna have infiltrated the Treman military government and the planet population, many of whom are space pirates, traders, and others concerned with profit or power. Treman must be freed from Spouwwqnan influence or the result may be another war between Treman and Astraios.

Science feels three vessels moving around Treman in coordinated orbits, emitting the nanite frequency from their deflector dishes, aimed at the planet, will remove the Spouwwqna from the population. The problem will be obtaining permission to orbit the planet without revealing the real reason, and, if this plan is successful, then obtaining cooperation from the Treman government to place NFGs on the planet surface to protect them. They may be suspicious of the devices.

Purpose of mission- Free our closest neighbour from the Spouwwqna. Ensure hostilities between the two planets are not inflamed. Gain cooperation from the Treman government so that the planet may be protected. Offer medical assistance if required.

Potential Outcomes- if the Spouwwqna gains access to Treman ships and arsenal, the entire sector could be in danger. Any attack by Treman on Astraios will void the peace treaty between the two planets. If we are able to assist the Tremanites to free themselves from the Spouwwqna, it will be a positive move in creating better relation between the parties.
