Subject: Re: *URGENT* Tholian Activity Patterns
We have returned from our investigation into the intel acquired regarding the Tholian incursion points across the sector. I regret to inform you that we have navigated to multiple coordinates where the supposed locations are and they are indeed valid. The locations are essentially spatial rifts which are believed to allow passage to and from the Tholian system. It is currently unknown if the configuration of these rifts is significant but it is clear that they are arranged in a way which completely surrounds the Dewa system. Given Tholian activity across the sector and most recently on Mol'Rihan, I believe the sector may be at risk for another large scale assault, with particular focus on the Dewa system.
In order to confirm this data, the USS Bacchus maintained cloaked status for the duration of the mission. Of note, it had come to our attention that the data received had been acquired through an extraction of Tal'Shiar probes in the area and provided to us via our Romulan contacts on Mol'Rihan. It is not known how this data was extracted without detection or why Lieutenant Tahket was provided the information directly, but needless to say, it's acquisition is still under scrutiny at this time.
This concludes our review of the data. Please let me know if you have any question and advise when you wish to follow up. My team will be available should you require any assistance in dealing with the spatial rifts.

The newly redesigned U.S.S. Tribune ( NCC ? 97261 ? F ), is a Horizon Class Research Science Vessel and was upgraded with better arms to defend herself in the war-torn 25th century. The U.S.S. Tribune is now equipped with a single phaser beam array in both the fore and aft weapons slots, two torpedo tubes in the fore weapons slots, and a phaser turret to better defend itself, and the federation in these troubled days.
Not only equipped with the best defensive weaponry the Federation has to offer, the U.S.S. Tribune has Polymporphically Polarized Shields to protect it's hull and precious cargo. The latest Thermal Analytic Sensors on board the U.S.S. Tribune will better allow the vessel to detect those anomalies that put off heat signatures. The refit of a hospital ship, the compliments of the U.S.S. Tribune gave away medical capability for Astrophysics Labs, and expanded General Science Labs.
Vice Admiral Jennifer Hunter stunned 26th Fleet officers during an awards ceremony by announcing her resignation and subsequent surrender to Starfleet Security, after quoting unspecified but illegal operations she was a party to. Details were not immediately forthcoming from Starfleet as to the events that lead to this surprising decision, and Hunter herself is sequestered away pending transport to Starfleet Headquarters.
What is known is that before relenquishing her position, she conferred a field promotion to Captain Corris Sprint, the commander of Praetorian station, placing him in command in her stead. The decision is sure to attract the notice of the Federation's friends and foes alike. Starbase 381 holds the front lines against Klingon agression along the Neutral Zone and the contested Sea of Sorrows region. It is known that the Klingon High Council has followed the command of Jennifer Hunter and some of her more battle hardened officers for some time. Representatives from the Romulan Republic, including the leader of a Federation/Republic Joint Task Force were also on hand, and by all accounts were just as shocked at the sudden announcement.
