Captain's Log:

Stardate: 180314

Alert Status: Yellow

We have intercepted a distress call coming from an explored system, and Cmdr McCellan says the signal has a borg signature.

Although the borg are no long the threat they were in the past, caution is still advised. Several pockets of liberated former drones have set up colonies around the quadrant and hopefully that is what we have here.

At the same time, both tactical and engineering are preparing in case this turns out to be one of the few borg vessels still operating in the quadrant.

Stardate: 180314
Location: Kanides IV

Log entry:

We received a hail from a borg collective, of all things. Though Ensign Su was quick to point out that it is a cooperative, not collective. A colony of liberated borg reached out for help.

Initial scans of the surface indicated that they had started an agrarian collective. They were harvesting several crops, including the now infamous quadrotriticale.

Making good use with little waste, the colony repurposed old parts from Borg vessels to create housing and other buildings of need.

With slight hesitation, an away team, including myself, was deployed to the surface. I spent the majority of my time scanning their crops, as harvest is often a good indication of social progress, even among liberated Borg.

Not only have they relearned how to "eat" but it seems they have begun to experiment with flavor. Along with the logical choice of quadrotriticale, they have been growing various herbs. While herbs can have the practical purpose of medicinal use, they also have the added benefit of flavoring dishes. This shows that they're really beginning to make themselves their own, and distancing themselves from the collective consciousness.

This, coupled with the choosing of non-numeric names, shows that they are really experimenting and embracing individuality. This is often the biggest hurtle for former collective members.

From what I understand, apparently one of their number's nanites has begun to try and revert her to rejoin the collective. Some sort of signal was causing a trigger in the nanites. Commander Fred McCellan and I worked on creating a dampening field, to supress the signal that was causing danger. Although, when I say Cmdr McCellan and I, I mostly mean he did the bulk of the work, while I managed not to break it. I did monitor the progress of the field though.

McCellan's work was successful, and the dampening field is in place.. for now. We will have to work on a more permanent sollution.


Conclusion:

An outside force is attempting to sabotage the cooperative, calling back the drones via their nanites. We will need to find out where it's coming from, and stop it from transmitting, or at least put something in place to stop the signal from reaching the planetary surface. Even if one claimed to hate the Borg and refused to believe that they could exist as a liberated colony (which I believe they can and have) then at least it should be done to avoid the Borg regaining their drones.

Voice Recording:

I moved the Veracruz through a standard patrol route at Warp 3. When the ship picked up a Borg signal, however, I was ordered to change course because Commodore Randt insisted on seeing how the Borg signal was being used. It turned out that the signal was a digital SOS from the Colony on Kanides; they reported injuries and a hostile force.

I proceeded towards the colony at Warp 7 and upon arrival, we beamed down and explored the colony while seeing to the crisis
