Captain's Log:

Stardate: 190731

Alert Status: Green


I have been called to Pinastri for an emergency JC meeting with the Frederation council. Since the Veracruz is needed here, I am taking a runabout to meet at Pinastri. With Captain Aryela still in sickbay, this leaves Captain Brit in acting command of the Veracruz. Everything should go smoothly until I return.


**supplimental entry, delayed recording**

While I was away, Captain Brit found a source for a warp coil to repair my personal shuttlecraft. He then took the El Tajin with Commander Syntron and Lt Commander MacPhearson to be sure the part was correct, and somehow, he lost the El Tajin! We are warping to his location to find out what happened, and to hopefully find the Tajin before I need 3 replacement crew members.

Location: Uhm... unsure... hic

Log entry:
I am currently reporting from the communications room on... is this a station? Planet? I think I'm on a station?

Stormy, please stop pointing that knife at people... Gron stop sleeping on my shoe!!

*report ended*

Log entry:
Firstly, I lost the pool, as I hadn't managed to destroy the ship within 18 hours. However, the good news is that no one won, as it wasn't destroyed at all.

While the Admiral Rhode-Randt was away for an urgent JC meeting and Captain Aryela was recovering from nearly drowning, I was placed in command. During that time, we received a message from the Chief Engineering Officer aboard the USS Exeter. Apparently a warp coil compatible with the El Tajin has been located. A buyer on an outpost of questionable friendliness had the unnecessarily old part.

We got our information from intelligence as to what to wear, and where to go.

I made the decision myself to lead an away team aboard the El Tajin. We couldn't risk losing this part. Gron assured me that he could keep the El Tajin safe. Also, after my previous excursion in a shuttle, I thought it best that I not pilot it. An added bonus would be his engineering skills, while not depriving the Veracruz of their much needed Chief Engineer.
The third person I chose for the team was Stormy. We would need security, and their race is fairly unknown, so it would not be obvious that we were Starfleet. I left Commander Jameson the conn, and Lt. Commander Cyrillian as acting first. They kept the ship together while the team was out.

Somewhere between landing on the planet and ending up on an unknown station... we lost the Admiral's personal shuttle. However we DID get the warp coil? Does that help?

We had no memory of where we were, how we got there, or where the shuttle has gone. I had the unfortunate duty of hailing the veracruz to inform them... and the admiral was back. I was hoping he had engine trouble or was attacked by a herd of space cattle or something, and was delayed. No such luck. I tried rock paper scissors to determine who had to call, but 1- I'm the senior officer. 2- I was put in charge, it's my responsibility. 3- teaching rock paper scissors to an inebriated Andorian and Vinorian, while being inebriated myself, was proving impossible.

I'm quite sure the Admiral was going to kill us. He certainly sounded like he was going to.


Conclusion:
The El Tajin is lost. It's my fault. It was my decision to take the shuttle, and it was lost under my command. I accept full responsibility for any damage or loss from henceforth that is discovered. Literally everyone else involved was only following orders.
