Captain's Log:

Stardate: 180509

Alert Status: Green

We stopped them, this time. The question is, how many times have we done this?

Commander Brit reports our chronometers are off of UFS Standard by 11 days. Whether that means we have done this 11 times, or if it means the time loop was a greater distortion then we initially believed, remains uncertain.

Of greater concern, our battle damage included the loss of our deuterium storage tanks, which means we have only a short amount of fuel. Our options are limited. Locate a source of deuterium, or call for a tug to bring us back to Pinastri.

=============================================

Stardate: 180509

Log entry:

According to the ship's chronometer, 11 days, 4 hours, and some odd minutes had passed since our arrival at the Paxati homeworld. According to stellar cartography, it's been 2 days, 20 hours, plus a few minutes, leaving a difference of just over 8 days. We presumed the difference should only be a single day, perhaps 2. The Ambassador did not mention anything about a time dilation effect from our excursion backwards in time, but it it cannot be ruled out. it's also a possibility that we repeated time more than once, and we simply do not remember the other occasions. In either event, the chronometer has been reset to reflect actual time.

Besides the extensive list of damage, we were short on fuel. The odds of finding deuterium ore in a usable form, in the middle of nowhere, is very small. It's small enough that I am not going to list the odds, but take my word for it. Nevertheless, it seems something is going our way for once. We found a moon that has an accessible deuterium deposit. We sent out some probes to search the area, I lit them up on the scans, and an away team was dispatched to gather it.

Conclusion:

Not dying is greater than dying. Finding deuterium is greater than dying. Therefore, life = deuterium.

Log entry:

Commander Moonprince Rhode-Randt Recording. A discrepancy has been detected in the ship's chronometer. When compared against the nearest subspace communication booster, 11 days, 4 hours, and some odd minutes had passed since our arrival at the Paxati home-world but the ship's systems states substantially less then that. It is a possibility that the discrepancy was a result of the battle damage we sustained in our last fight but considering the memories some of the other things that have happened the possibility of the ship and crew being caught in some type of temporal loop is being explored by the science team.

While most of our battle damage has been repaired or will be repaired with in the next day or so, we have a larger problem to deal with. In the battle our primary deuterium tank was ruptured. We were able to seal the leak but not before most of our fuel was lost. Science was able to locate a source of deuterium with in our limited area for travel. The ship was able to make it to this moon where a team was sent down to mine the fuel we need. Scans show its not the high quality fuel we would hope for but it will be enough for our needs.

Repairs will take a while. I am keeping the speed of the ship steady unless otherwise ordered. I eventually settled the Veracruz into a standard orbit around a moon and went down to the surface to help the rest of the crew mine much needed deuterium. My skills with tools came in handy because I was able to mine quite a bit. using a drill.

Lieutenant Commander LeighAnn Mantis
