# 16 Being Tested - Admiral's Log

Admiral's Log, Stardate 90506


Despite being tested by the Klingon Empire's 32nd Attack Fleet, our own Task Force Avalon has reopened the space lanes to New Romulus. After a challenging attack at the ruins of Starbase 104, our crews managed to send a clear message to the KDF - Stay on your side of the Neutral Zone.

Victory comes with a price. Nearly two hundred dead with almost double that wounded. It comes as small consolation that the KDF fared much, much worse but for everyone one of their ships destroyed, a boat load of warriors made their way to their ancestor's spiritual halls. In Starfleet, letters are written, memorials held, and we grieve in our own ways for the fallen, wondering when we will at last achieve peace.

The starship Enterprise paid Praetorian a visit the other day. Though the stopover was brief, Starfleet's flagship and indeed the embodiment of our ideals, seem to boost morale across the station and fleet. As soon as Intelligence verified the KDF was standing down, we resumed operations to support New Romulus. For each ship that leaves to assist D'Tan's people, I know there are many aboard who look out at our dockyards and see the stricken ships that fought at 104. We'll never forget them, as Tennyson wrote:

When can their glory fade ?
O the wild charge they made!
All the world wonder'd.
Honour the charge they made!
Honour the Light Brigade,
Noble six hundred!

We'll remember our 'Noble two hundred', and carry on as they would have wanted us to do.
