For me, the trouble is as I said above, it sounded too much like a TNG episode. Voyager and Enterprise (if you count The Expanse episodes), have done similar stories as well.
There was a lot of story that was asked to be covered, and condensing it into one or two log entries is a bit much. Either some story gets lost, or I need to make multiple posts, and if that's the case I might as well write a novella. If I am writing a novella, it won't be as log entries.
I also like having a bit more freedom when it comes to being able to throw a little bit more individualism into the plot, which I did since I already scrapped this idea once before, and also chose to post it as is out of stubbornness. Deviation from the rules is the Starfleet way isn't it? xD
