The USS Shogun continues her investigation to determine what really happened to the USS Nautilus.
Location: 219.42 LY Trailing Pinastri System, Sector 014D (Proposed Name: Nautilus Sector)
Alert Status: YELLOW
The investigation continues and it is frustrating. Each passing minute seems to yield more questions than answers. As we comb through PADDs, wreckage, the system 'black box' and the corpses of crew we have found, it seems less and less likely we're going to find a simple answer that we easily understand. I do still believe that Hirogen are involved, however I'm less sure that they're the 'same' Hirogen that brokered peace with USS Voyager in 2374. Is that even possible? Perhaps I'm completely off base with this whole thing and its an attempt to frame the Hirogen. To that end, I have started to make attempts to contact the Federations regular liaison to the Hirogen. This is not an easy task, as they are still largely nomadic. However, perhaps I can start to assemble some answers without starting a panic throughout the Federation. This is the reason that our work thus far is so heavily classified... what if we're wrong?
Due to the lack of information, I have ordered Sciences, Tactical and Operations to begin broader base scans of the area. Perhaps some piece, some bit, was left behind somewhere. I know we're grasping at straws, but this is a 'leave no stone unturned' type of situation. Perhaps finding something else can lead to the evidence we need...
Computer End Log
The USS Shogun continued her investigation into the destruction of the Nautilus, examining research and considering multiple theories of what happened. She also launched probes to 3 nearby planets and found unusual energy signals on one of them. So she entered orbit and Captain Ulrich Bechir sent two away teams down to investigate.
The teams found some type of powerful weapon and tracking system. The technology involved on the weapon and the language on the controls was Hirogen. Analysis of computer system log files revealed that it had previously tracked the USS Nautilus, and was currently tracking the USS Shogun. It was transmitting that tracking data to a remote location (most likely a ship). In addition, the weapon itself appeared to be targeting the Shogun. Engineering and Operations worked together to disable it before it could do any damage.
Security investigated the site and found traces of Hirogen DNA on the controls, giving the USS Shogun tangible evidence that the Hirogens were involved in the destruction of the Nautilus.
