Commanding Officer Poison Toocool - Log, Stardate 120712: Chief Medical Officer, Genny7 Markus, has accepted the position of Executive Officer for Astraios, I know she'll do a wonderful job. We have been assigned a new medical officer... *crosses to her desk and looks up the LCARS* ... a Breydon Lane, Lieutenant. Was retired, coming back to duty. Looks like a solid officer. Apparently his shuttle, on route from Pinastri, ran into some trouble near Treman. Commander Markus is eager to do a test flight on one of our newer vessels. I've assigned her the Temujin, she'll take a small crew, rendezvous with the LT and bring him home to Astraios.

Reporting: Cmdr Genny7 Markus, Executive Officer, USS Temujin -- Stardate: 120715 -- Location: 3 ly coreward of Astraios Prime:
With a small crew of volunteers from those who were on two weeks leave after our five-month-long mission with the Borg sphere, we are taking the USS Temujin out of space dock for the first time for a small mission to Treman to pick up our new Medical Officer, Doctor Breydon Lane. He has had the misfortune of his shuttle breaking down near Treman whilst on his way to us.
The crew seem to be settling well to their new stations, although a couple have pressed the wrong controls at least once. We should arrive at Treman in 10 minutes at impulse power 5, and as we get nearer I ask COMS to send a message to Dr Lane advising him of our ETA and asking that he be standing by to be beamed to the ship. We will have to tractor his shuttle to the hanger bay, and then we can be on our way home.
As we approach Treman, OPS reports that there is a Ferengi ship off the port bow, but scans record that there are no life signs aboard so we continue on our way. Dr Lane responds to our hail saying that he is standing by and as we come in to orbit around Treman he is beamed to the bridge where everyone greets him. I ask him to take the medical position on the bridge. Engineering has a tractor beam on the shuttle and we bring it in to the hanger bay. In no time at all we are ready for the return trip to Astraios.
I ask Helm to lay in a course back to Astraios but to take the scenic route so that we have a chance to get to know our positions on this new bridge. Whilst pulling away from Treman, Tactical notices that the Ferengi ship has moved its position, once again we scan it but no lifesigns are showing, could it be on automatic controls, or masked as they have done to us before?
LTCmdr Barbosa alerts me to the fact that the Cargobay doors haven't closed properly, which is followed by a massive flux in the sensor reading there. I order Security to the Cargo bay and blue team is dispatched.
I put the ship on yellow alert and wait for a report from security as to the problem. Whilst waiting we put a tractor beam on to the Ferengi ship, and immediately it tried to pull away from us. I decided that it was better to push them as far away from us as possible rather than having to deal with both situations at the same time.
Suddenly there was an explosion in the cargo bay, which blocked the door to the security team, engineering reported that there was decompression in the cargo bay and a force field is put up around the bay. I order the blue security team, who are all wearing hazard suits, to blast the doors open, and it was at that moment that the Ferengi ship opened fire on us!
I suggested to tactical that a warning shot across their bow might help, but before this order could be carried out they prepared to fire on us again. Security suggested a Tri-cobalt torpedo exploded near them would disable their power and engines for 20 minutes so I ordered it done. With the Ferengi ship out of commission the report came in that the fire in the cargo bay was now under control. With that news I ordered that we set our course for home before anything else happened to us.
Apart from the loss of Dr Lane's lab equipment and several holes in the cargo bay,the crew have performed their duties in an excellent manner, I am very proud of them all.
However, I do wonder if the Captain will ever let me take a new ship out again after this incident.
