Ship's Log, Stardate 131013

Background: Encrypted orders were given to the USS Armstrong (Galaxy Class) to proceed to the Treman system, with the USS Ghana (Excelsior Class) and USS Colossus (Sovereign Class). There were 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.

USS Neil Armstrong: We will shortly leave the 'protection' of the Taakar Nebula and asteroid belt, making our course towards Treman, in full view of the military patrols and outposts, using probes to help guide the vessel while our navigational array is down. We sent an open message to SS Astraios reporting the damage we had taken when 'bumping' into an asteroid... exaggerating our situation; we have filled sick bay and a triage area with crew to aid in the deception.

Our goal is simple - to obtain permission to orbit Treman for the purpose of repairing our vessel and sending crew to the surface for R&R while the work is done. We will then quietly move into position, while the Ghana and Colossus coordinate with us. When all three vessels are in place, the emission from our combined deflector dishes should free the planet from the Spouwwqna.

We have received an encrypted signal from the Colossus reporting that a fleet is gathering at the Treman space station. For what purpose we do not yet know but... we fear the objective will be Astraios. This makes our task all the more urgent.

It's opening night and I pray all the 'actors' know their lines.

Supplemental: We have taken a DNA sample from the female claiming to be LT T'Prain from the USS Shogun. We have been unable to send it to SS Astraios for transmission to Pinastri, for identification... our last communication from Astraios was garbled but apparently there is an issue with the Astraios communications array and repairs are in progress. T'Prain claims that in her Spouwwqna state she became aware of senior crew from the USS Armstrong being taken to Treman, the information they have is to assist the Spouwwqna and Tremanites to attack Astraios successfully.
