Executive Officer Genny7 Markus - Log, Stardate 121130:
While investigating a war bird on the planet ShoValla, Captain Toocool was kidnapped. In the battle that followed, we killed the Pirate Queen Zhiella Bruxxls and captured her ship, the "Maj", however the Argonaut was badly damaged. We have left her behind on ShoValla with the bulk of the Huitzilopochtli crew, for repair. Logs on the "Maj" indicate Captain Toocool was beamed off the Bird of Prey prior to the battle, we are now following the trail. The Huit's Second Officer, Commander Konora Meth, has been seconded to us for this Mission. The data we have on the pirates show they are from a variety of species, but their ships, weapons and equipment seems to be overwhelmingly Klingon, albeit out of date. We've managed to destroy the spacestation they were using for a base near the ShoVallan system, but not before confirming the Captain had been there and was being taken to the slave market on Treman with other prisoners. We made our course for Treman at best speed the old warbird could manage.
We will shortly enter the uncharted binary system that stands between us and Treman. I feel certain the signal we are picking up from this system is from Captain Toocool. I have an image in my mind of a beautiful, lush green planet with two suns in the sky by day and two moons hovering at night. Maybe I am sensing the Captain's thoughts! Our sensors and systems are affected by the gravimetric forces as we move forward, but I feel no danger. No need to worry!

Despite our warnings, Commander Markus insisted we head into the binary system. Although gravimetric forces were strong, we were able to enter atmosphere of a class L planet and land, although lack of shields caused several small hull breaches. The source of the signal was located in some structures on the planet surface. A small team was dispatched to investigate whilst repairs to the hull commenced.
We transported to the location. We found ourselves in what appeared to be an old Western town circa 1800s Earth. It was deserted, but the source of the signal was here. I couldn't pinpoint it with my tricorder, so we began to search the buildings.
Commander Markus was complaining of dizzyness, and said she could hear Captain Toocool's voice begging for rescue. We located some technology hidden in one of the buildings, it appeared to be a transporter device. We were unwilling to try it. Commander Markus continued to feel unwell.
At that point LTcmdr Barbosa mentioned the spider webs we had found. Something occured to me. I asked science, what is the significance of spider webs. They are used to catch flies. Catch prey.
I felt even more certain this was a trap, and a decision was made that we would return to the ship. However we were unable to contact the Maj. I suggested we move away from the village, and in moving down the road I bumped into some kind of unseen obstruction. I fell, but was unhurt. This situation is very strange.
