After a tense and close battle with two Romulan warbirds, the Veracruz is awaiting a resupply ship as our engineering and tactical teams are repairing the battle damage and getting us back into condition to defend ourselves if the need should arise.
In addition, the resupply ship will be tranporting Captain Pendleton back to Pinastri for her next assignment. I hope her experiences aboard the Veracruz have taught her the difference between classroom practicals and actual service aboard one of the ships of the line.
In service, Flt Captain Kinney Randt-Rhode

Personal Log - Fred McCellan
Having just come out of a battle with two Romulan vessels, we were not in very good shape at the start of today's shift. Just after the battle, our shields were down to 14% but are now up to about 35%. A lot of work still needs to be done to get them to 100%. We also had one burned out forward phaser bank, and one of the aft banks was on the fritz. On the bridge there were various consoles that were fried as well as some fallen beams and structural damage. One of our torpedo tubes was hit when the Romulans targeted our weapons systems. Our forward sensor array was pretty much pulverized. Hence, our current task is to repair the Veracruz the best we can.
We still don't know for sure why the Romulans are so interested in Tupor Prime but they must have a pretty good reason, otherwise why would they get into a fight about it.
Starfleet sent the USS Exeter to come to our aid with a good supply of repair parts, materials, and a supply of torpedoes. The Exeter arrived shortly after the start of today's shift and after coordinating with us, began transferring all her "goodies" over to us.
All available personnel were engaged in helping with the repairs. Many of the needed repair parts were able to be replicated using the raw materials we had on hand or provided by the Exeter. Shuttle bay and cargo bay crew were kept busy receiving, distributing, and storing the various crates, materials, and parts as they arrived from the Exeter. Some of the smaller crates and items were beamed directly to the areas of the ship where they were needed. Even the bridge crew lent a hand in repairing the damaged consoles and fallen beams.
At the end of the shift the ship was in much better shape but there is still work to do. For instance, a new torpedo tube will be fabricated in a cargo bay but that will take some time.The pulverized forward sensor array was repaired and is fully functional except for the lack of a multiphasic discriminator. We didn't have spare parts for the discriminator and unfortunately some of the critical ones can't be replicated. Repair will have to wait until we return to Pinastri. In the meantime, the lateral arrays will be used to compensate for the loss of the forward discriminator.
Thanks to the Exeter, our torpedo supply is back up to our maximum level of 325. Our forward and aft phasers are improved but still not at 100%, however, our our aft phasers are now up to a respectable 80%.
