Executive Officer Genny7 Markus - Log, Stardate 120928:
Location: uncharted Class L planetoid, 6 ly trailing Astraios -- Our mission was to rendezvous with USS Huitzilopochtli, on route from the Pinastri system, and escort her to Astraios Sector. We estimated 3 to 4 weeks travel time to meeting her. Signals have been intermittent, but that was to be expected given the Astraios effect and the proximity of the Takaar Nebula. Unfortunately the Huit was drawn into our ongoing battle with the vicious pirates who have been operating in the Astraios Sector and beyond. She came to our aid when we were ambushed by 3 Klingon warships, took heavy damage and was destroyed on stardate 120908.1243; fortunately we were able to rescue the majority of the crew, but the bridge officers and Captain Libre are among the fallen.
On stardate 120916, Captain Poison Toocool of SS Astraios, was kidnapped by a viscious pirate syndicate operating in and around the Astraios Sector. Our team had been aboard the USS Argonaut, and had found a possible hiding place for the perpetrators of crime and slavery on a benign planetoid where the low-tech and peaceful ShoValla live. The pirates seem to have access to Federation technology and use false signals and holograms to entrap others. They have a fleet of outdated but deadly Klingon warships. It doesn't matter - we are going to rescue the Captain, come hell or highwater - or court martial.

The Captain has been kidnapped by the pirates, so now I have to take over command of the Argonaut. My first duty is to send the crew of the Huit and the ShoVallan survivors to the surface of the planet by shuttle craft. Once they were safely down I asked Mr. Bravin our Second Officer to assist me as First Officer. Engineering were installing the cloaking device we had taken from the downed Bird of Prey so we seemed ready to take off after the other pirate ship to get our Captain back where she belonged.
Shortly after lift off we hit our first problem, some how those pesky pirates had managed to change the code on the planet's shield, I was in no mood to wait around while the other ship got away from us so ordered Tactial to blow a small hole in the shield, just enough to let us through. Science detected a warp trail and we started to follow, but once again the pirates had been up to their tricks and had dropped mines behind them. One of these exploded and damaged our port nacelle which I ordered engineering to start repairing straight away. Things were happening very fast, and our next problem was a distress call from a shuttle which when scanned showed it was packed with ShoVallans. Some how we had to get them off of the shuttle, with our cloak now working we edged ourselves alongside the shuttle and in seconds lowered both the shields and the cloak and beamed the people to our ship. But we were not fast enough and the pirates started firing at us.
Both ships were badly damaged. but we managed to get in some very good shots and disabled their shields where upon I sent over to that ship a well armed team to capture their bridge and also the ship. In the short battle that followed for the bridge Zhieela Bruxxis was killed by LT Cmdr Barbosa and their first officer was killed as well. The pirates surrendered and we were able to scan the ship for the Captain..... But she was not there...
