“Captains Log supplemental. Our journey back to Starbase 397 has been slow, once we had subspace communications back online it was a simple matter of hours till a tow vessel from the starbase was able to assist us. We have been docked at the starbase’s repair station for a week now with another month of heavy repairs and retrofitting to be done. Our Romulan captive has been reprimanded to Starfleet Command for debriefing. While the damage to my ship was severe the damage to the moral and to living spirit of my ship suffered the greatest. In all of the 450 crew I lost 86 valuable members of this ship. While having only been in command for six months of this ship I will be etching the names of each member of this crew that I have lost into my mind. I will be contacting their families personally to deliver this tragic news. It is not something I am looking forward to but must do myself. Starfleet though despite the loss of life, wants copies of all our sensor logs. In commands own words ‘As tragic as this event has been it has given us a most rare and unique event. This has shown an event with Tachyon particles that has never been witnessed before. Our science teams will be going over this date for some time to come.’ My optimism over this is not the same as theirs. End Log.”
