Commanding Officer's Log, Stardate: 140708

Location: SS Astraios

The forces at work here are like piranha. But slower. Here and there, they take a bite. Just when we think we can relax our guard, they will move in. Unseen. Malevolent. Dogging our steps and our daily thoughts. Yet this is what we signed up for. To protect the weak and innocent from those that would do them harm. To offer a counterbalance to the darkness that exists. And we organize, plan, train and prepare for those moments when we need to put it all on the line.

This report from Pléō is troubling to say the least. The sketchy description we could pull from their garbled distress call has some chilling similarities to the hijacking of the USS Prophetic. If indeed, the The Apeiros are involved, we need to warn all our allies and friends in neighbouring sectors.

We need to investigate further, and come up with a defense against these technological robberies. Otherwise one day soon we may be facing one of our own Starfleet ships, fully armed, ready to fire upon us.
