Captain's log, stardate 110212:
We now wait for the arrival of the USS Menelaus for our first ever wargame event. Commander Nakajima has spent the past several days upgrading the systems of the USS Cheyenne for this exercise and we are all looking forward to the opportunity to see how things develop. While the Menelaus is a formidable foe with an experienced crew, I hold my own crew in highest regard and with the power of the Cheyenne at our disposal, either vessel could be victor.
They should arrive at our coordinates within the next several minutes.
With the arrival of the Menelaus, initial volleys of torpedoes and phaser fire were exchanged, though the Cheyenne was forced to perform evasive maneuvers as the Menelaus initiated MVAM. While taking a pounding, we focused on their Command Hull, obliterating their shields. Seeing the tactic we were taking and seeing their own premature demise, the Menalus reintegrated while we continued our assault.
Even with the abuse they had taken, both their shields and hull were still in better shape than our own. The Cheyenne's pulse cannons continued to work hard on taking down their shields, and within several minutes, they fell, followed immediately by our own.
Now taking direct hits to our hulls, the battle got ugly fast, with systems beginning to fail across both ships. As we circled about and unloaded another volley of quantum torpedoes, we finally managed to breech their hull and destroy them.
Commander Sweet immediately contacted us on comms and congratulated the crew before inviting us to the Menelaus. After debriefing and discussion about the event, we took several notes on how to improve upon the simulation and to make it even better next time. I look forward to our next wargame to see if what we have learned can be put to use.
