Commanding Officer's Log, Stardate: 140518

Location: Astraios Colony

The past few days have been a blur of official duties, council meetings, discussions with architects and landscapers, and attending diplomatic functions. Thankfully I did not need to leave Astraios Prime but I did travel by shuttle to two different events on the same day, rather exhausting and I will have to have a word with my yeoman about that.

But the most pressing, and depressing news, is about the USS Prophetic. I received word this morning that she was gone. She had disappeared while on a short test flight. Initial reports were vague as to what happened but as the investigation carried on it became clear the vessel had been stolen while still in the system. How this happened with all our security, tactical and operations personnel on duty and our technology primed to alert us to all movements in the sector... is still beyond our understanding.

From what we have been able to determine, the ship passed through a cloaked transwarp gate which then exploded, leaving us no trace of the ship or where she might have been taken. We are examining the debris. Questioning of crew and engineering teams on the ground have led us to this conclusion: the Captain, several bridge officers, and the Foulsbane children, are all missing and presumed to be still aboard the ship, wherever she may be.

I have issued an alert to the Colony, the Fleet, and the Astraionian Civilian Authority. We are now at DefStat 1.

Investigation into the technology used to infiltrate the Sector and steal a Starfleet vessel continues. The fleet has their orders. A message has been sent to Starfleet Command to advise our situation. At this point, nothing and no one is safe.
