Captains Log, Stardate 85647.5
Alright, let's take it from the start. About a week ago, Admiral Thompson sent me a text-only sub-space message, saying he needed to speak with me face to face. I returned to Earth, after shore leave on Vulcan and met with him. It turns out, he wanted me to do a particularly dangerous mission. Considering the fact that I am Vulcan, I may have been the logical choice. But taking into account that I, unlike any other Vulcans, experience emotions, maybe rather illogical. He told me that I was going to lead a task force. Not just any taskforce. I am going to lead a team that is gonna infiltrate a Borg Unimatrix. Possibly even where the queen herself is located. Now, that's not gonna be any problem. The problem is that I only am going to have my two ships available, and a handful of M.A.C.O's.
Luckily, my Tactical Escort, and my Dreadnought class Cruiser are equipped with cloaking devices.
Here's how we're gonna do it:
The U.S.S. Night Hawk (Escort), and the U.S.S. Avon (Dreadnought) are gonna divert the Spheres and Cubes, and whatever Borg vessel might be in the vicinity. Meanwhile, we are gonna launch two shuttles from the Avon. One with my First officer & Chief Engineer, Twelve who was a former Borg, leading the away team desginated "Away team Beta" consisting of My Chief Engineer, The ships Doctor, Azroi, Bren my Helmsman. However, since he is a Breen he's gonna be pretty handy. And Kamman'Agar, my security officer. Another useful person, as he is Jem'Hadar. The other with me and 5 M.A.C.Os, desginated "Away team Alpha". Now, I expect heavy resistance as soon as we leave the shuttle bay. That's why my Engineers are in the process of upgrading the armors & shield systems on the two shuttles. I am confident at least one of the shuttles will make it. Hopefully both.
When we land, we will blow up the shuttles so they can't assimilate the technology, and to keep them occupied with something else.
Once inside the Unimatrix, both ships will cloak and warp out. Inside, we will have to reach the central plexus and upload a fractal virus that will disrupt the Queens control over the Borg in the Alpha Quadrant. All within 4 hours.
Now, I'm sure the mission will be a sucess with minimal cassualties, I'm more worried about the crew. Ever since I told them of the mission, they've been a little... On edge.
Honestly... I don't have a very good feeling about this either. I'm sure my plan is gonna work. But with my luck, I'll probably end up assimilated...
All jokes aside, I just have this weird feeling that something is gonna go wrong.
But as long as we get that fractal virus in place, nothing else matters. Let's just hope we all get out alive...
Computer, end log.
