Commanding Officer Poison Toocool - Log, Stardate 120608: Here we sit, on USS Mak'ala, days away from SS Astraios. Our ship is battered and bruised from the Takaar Nebula, two trips through what appears to be a transwarp conduit, and attacks by alien vessels. Meanwhile, our engineers are working to repair a Borg sphere... whilst security teams scour through it, looking for evidence of illegal activity. So far, nothing has been found but based on what '1 of 300' has told me, he has clearly been an accessory to the crimes committed by pirates in the Astraios Sector. He remains in sickbay, the doctor is adamant he needs rest, but I'm impatient to question him further. Long range comms from USS Marco Polo say they received our stand down message and have moved to intercept the fleet, all some hours away from us now. Science is reporting an increase in tachyon particle emissions from the wormhole...

Reporting: Commanding Officer USS Mak'ala (Cptn Poison Toocool): Three days here, repairing a Borg sphere against my better judgement, on behalf of '1 of 300', who has been in our sick bay the whole time. A vessel approaching at high speed turns out to be none other than Zhieela Brruxls, a pirate we met on Treman some weeks ago. Her goal? Get the sphere for herself. We engaged in a battle of words... and phasers... and we took some heavy fire. Science warned that another vessel was coming through the wormhole... I doubted it would be friendly. I ordered Tactical to destroy Zhieela's ship. As I paused, another round of phaser fire took out our weapons. I immediately ordered the Mak'ala to prepare to move away at warp, and told the engineering team aboard the sphere to coordinate with OPs so we could beam an away team over there. We successfully transported and the Mak'ala moved off. '1 of 300' seemed willing to help, we were able to target the sphere's weapons on the pirate vessel. I was on the verge of saying "FIRE" when Science informed me there were civilian prisoners aboard Zhieela's ship. She shot at us once, and took off through the wormhole, the other vessel - perhaps coming to meet her - joined her. I ordered the sphere to follow them. We have to save those people from the slavers.
