Subject: Security Audit for Facility 4028

After receiving complaints from many Captains who have recently visited Facility 4028, Starfleet Intelligence has ordered a security audit of the facility.

On the above date and approximate time I, Vice Admiral Ravin Mot, conducted a security audit of Facility 4028, a maximum security penal facility located in the Ayala System of the Regulos Sector Block. Upon arrival I was challenged by a hologram simply known as the "Warden." I properly identified myself and, after a quick security check, I was allowed entry into the facility by way of the transporter.

After I materialized inside the facility I found myself alone, with only a voice recording to guide me, directing all visitors to seek out the warden by following a blue line. Thus begins the first of many security breaches I discovered at what is supposed to be our highest level security facility in the Federation. Recommendation, a security escort would be advisable here. Not only for a visitor's protection, but to ensure that visitor isn't armed, which I was.

After exiting the facility's transporter room I found the blue line the voice was referring to. I've researched the facility's security and know that it is made up of holograms. What I found odd was that these holograms were wearing armor. Why? Aesthetics, I guess. They were also armed with phaser rifles, security breach number two. It's not advisable to allow staff to carry potentially lethal weapons inside a facility known to house violent criminals. Even a stun phaser at the highest setting can be lethal.

The blue line lead me to a door marked Processing Area A. A pad presented itself to me as I reached the door. Looking around, I expected to see one of the Holo Officers move to approach the pad, but they did not. So I manipulated the pad to open the door and lower the force field. Security breach number three. Visitors should not be allowed to open, close, or deactivate security doors or force fields, or activate a security bridge.

I walked into a small area where I found the "Warden." I identified myself and asked If I could inspect the cells on this level. After another quick check of my ID, the warden pointed me to the access panel to gain access to one of the secure wings. Again, manipulating the panel myself, I deactivated the force field, activated the bridge, and opened the door. Turning around I walked back to the door I originally entered through to find that it too was wide open providing a clear path form the secure wing into the main lobby of the facility. Security breach number four, before one entry way opens the other entry way should be secure.

I was allowed to enter the secure wing alone, walking by the first cell I noticed the security pad to the cell presented itself to me. I accessed the pad and found out I could freely open the cell door, however I was not granted access to the force field, which, with the lack of security found in this facility did surprise me. Alas, I should have not been allowed to roam the wing unescorted, much less been allowed to open cell doors.

I concluded my inspection there. Never in my 23 years in Starfleet have I come across such a poorly run facility. I presented the breeches to the "Warden," and reported my findings to Starfleet Intelligence.

Subject: RE: Security Audit for Facility 4028

Vice Admiral Ravin Mot, I am Vica Admiral Price, upon reviewng your letter and the written complaints of other captains who have made trips to Facility 4028, I felt the need to make an inspection of my own and this is the bone rattling discoveries i made:

In paragraph 3 you write "After I materialized inside the facility I found myself alone, with only a voice recording to guide me, directing all visitors to seek out the warden by following a blue line. Thus begins the first of many security breeches I discovered at what is supposed to be our highest level security facility in the Federation. Recommendation, a security escort would be advisable here. Not only for a visitor's protection, but to ensure that visitor isn't armed, which I was."

I fully agree with this assesment. For anyone to simply beam on to the station armed without any sort of search or warning from the ISIS computer is simply rediculous! Civilian starships and freighters have better Transporter-security-protocals! The fact that my aid and I were allowed to freely keep our weapons concealed is to great to overlook. ALL PERSONEL COMING AND LEAVING THE STATION SHOULD BE SEARCHED. As for the the ISIS voice directing you to the blue line, though i am not totally oppossed to this at lesser grade facilities 4028 should've had a guard greeting all arrivies and leading them to thier destinations.

In paragraph 4 you state: "After exiting the facility's transporter room I found the blue line the voice was referring to. I've researched the facility's security and know that it is made up of holograms. What I found odd was that these holograms were wearing armor. Why? Aesthetics, I guess. They were also armed with phaser rifles, security breech number two. It's not advisable to allow staff to carry potentially lethal weapons inside a facility known to house violent criminals. Even a stun phaser at the highest setting can be lethal.

Doing reasearch into the Hologram guards "Aesthetics" i found their cosmetic subroutines were programed to these perameters to deffer inmates from assaulting the guards. Though you cannot physically harm a hologram inmates can do harm to themselves which is not favorable at all. As for the holograms carrying weapons, I am indifferent seeing as the weapons themselves were holographic a humanoid wouldn't be able to use as the owner hologram could simply de-materialize and re-materialize at will. Atleast i would hope so.

Paragraph 5/6: The blue line lead me to a door marked Processing Area A. A pad presented itself to me as I reached the door. Looking around, I expected to see one of the Holo Officers move to approach the pad, but they did not. So I manipulated the pad to open the door and lower the force field. Security breech number three. Visitors should not be allowed to open, close, or deactivate security doors or force fields, or activate a security bridge.

I walked into a small area where I found the "Warden." I identified myself and asked If I could inspect the cells on this level. After another quick check of my ID, the warden pointed me to the access panel to gain access to one of the secure wings. Again, manipulating the panel myself, I deactivated the force field, activated the bridge, and opened the door. Turning around I walked back to the door I originally entered through to find that it too was wide open providing a clear path form the secure wing into the main lobby of the facility. Security breech number four, before one entry way opens the other entry way should be secure.

"Visitors should not be allowed to open, close, or deactivate..." Very true the amount of freedom I had to interact with ISIS's system's was apolling on top of not having any escort. I remember back when i was a lowly Comander I lead a mission, with Admiral Zelle, to the Vendor System to destroy weapons the Romulans were working on. Upon arrival i found Zelle to be Undine and the whole misson a plot to assist "IT" in infiltration the Romulan Empire. If something like that happened again and any of those crimials were free'd Starfleet and the Federation would be at fault.

I believe that the Warden Hologram was made "too human." when dealing with him i felt he felt as if he could fully trust me not to do any wrongs because of my rank. As i said above with my experience with the Undine agent possing as Zelle i do not make that mistake anymore.

Paragraph 7: I was allowed to enter the secure wing alone, walking by the first cell I noticed the security pad to the cell presented itself to me. I accessed the pad and found out I could freely open the cell door, however I was not granted access to the force field, which, with the lack of security found in this facility did surprise me. Alas, I should have not been allowed to roam the wing unescorted, much less been allowed to open cell doors.

I must say that I was not surprised by the force fields being unmanipulatedable by myself, just thankful and relieved.
After my inspection the Senior Officer, a human male, invited the Warden and i to eat with them. The warden being a hologram understandably refused while my aid and i accepted the offer. I tried to, informally, question him about his role and the daily operations that go on here but he was more interested in my young aid then me. Needless to say i snuck out of the dinning and began to made my way back to the Warden's office.

The Warden then told me that Captain Gaila off the USS TICONDEROGA had been destroyed passing near the Vorn system and that clearence came through for me to see the Female Changling and take her and her Vorta servant back to Deep Space Nine. I'm sure you know of whats been going on there as does the whoel quadrant. After i approached the Female Changling and explained the situation there was a system failure in the main ISIS core, all Holograms and cell force fields ceased function. I was on route to the transporter room with the Female Changeling, her vorta servant, and my aid when we were attacked by the lead Jem'hadar, Karu'kan."

Luckily if you you call it luck, or failure of security, as stated in Paragraph 1, my aid and I were still armed with are hand phasers and with help from, the Vorta's Jem'hadar we were able to fight off them off and as our Borg friends say, "bring order to chaos."

Now an attack on a Starfleet/Federation facility is sadly not uncommon these days, however the lack of security at facility 4028 and the fact that the Jem'hadar were able to cross four Federation sectors undetected. Uncloaked. Has me thinking that there is a serious lack of security throughout all of the federations and possibly a traitor in our ranks. My suspicions of Admiral Quinn being an undine agent aren't secret however I cannot believe that he alone is the culprit. That he is getting help from others. T'nae told me that Zelle often traveled to earth for "meetings" and "conferences," which suggest the two were close, and we saw what happened there. My friend, Rear Admiral Si'atl, once suggested [Contents redacted by order of Sction 31].

[Contents redacted by order of Section 31].

Rally whoever you believe you can trust, though do keep our "inner circle" small. If someone like Quinn were to get wind of this it could spell disaster for a already corrupt Federation. I look forward to day day we can meet.

Sincerely,

Vice Admiral Price
