Captain's Log:

Stardate: 190807

Alert Status: Green


I have no words, and perhaps that is for the best until I have taken the time to calm down. We have located Captain Brit, along with Commander Syntron and Lt Commander MacPhearson. All three are on a space station, and are either so drunk and/or high that Lt Commander MacPhearson can't even stay awake, and the other two are not that for behind.

I am having them transported back to the ship in the hopes that once they have recovered, they will recall where they left the El Tajin. Once that has been discussed, I will then move on to the other bridge crew members who went along with what has to be the most insane idea I have yet to hear.

Seriously, how do you miss-place a shuttlecraft?

Log entry:

Many of our questions have been answered, but some of them lead to more questions. But the important information is that the El Tajin is back in it's parking space aboard the USS Veracruz. It's not only in one piece, but it's in relatively good condition.

Here's what we know about what happened, after retracing our steps.

Commander Gron Syntron, Lt Stormy Macphereson and I took the El Tajin down to outpost on the planet. We were to meet up with a contact that had a warp coil for the El Tajin. We were early, so we decided to go into a nearby shrine while we waited. To blend in, we agreed to drink a beverage that they offered at the shrine.

This is where everything went wrong. The beverage had more than simply alcohol in it. After we drank it we went into a.... well... I'm not a doctor. But sufficed to say, we became highly intoxicated, and recall little of the events after that. There were also donuts. They had it too, but not as much. She touted the place as a sort of retreat to ease the worry of the future by erasing it... or not allowing the past to shape the future by... It's hard to describe. But I assumed that she was simply speaking in metaphors. It is now painfully apparent that she was not.

From what the matron lady... person... thing... of the shrine told us, we left to go to a club hangout a bit down the street. This was where we were going to meet the fellow that had our warp coil.

We proceeded to the bar, where there was a bouncer. It looked as though he was going to be cooperative, but after a few broken bottles and a kick to the shin, I suppose his attitude had changed. Mine would have too, to be honest. I wasn't paying as much attention to the conversation as I should have been. I was busy experiencing a hazy dejavu and trying to sort out if I was actually remembering anything or if my brain was simply making the conjecture based upon likely scenarios and suggestion... What I did get from it was that we had met with the guy, gotten our coil, then proceeded to make a series of harmlessly bad decisions. I played pool, Stormy pole danced, and gron appeared to be chatting up a lady in the corner. This is actually more important that it sounds. The lady turns out to be a nearby scrap dealer...
metal scrap...
various pieces and parts including shuttle pieces...

I was certain that this meant that the el tajin was now in multiple pieces, scattered across the quadrant. This is the same fate I had resigned myself to by this point.

It turns out that most of our inferences were incorrect. Commander Syntron was not flirting with the female scrap dealer. Also, her intent was not to turn the El Tajin into scrap. He made some sort of bet that she could not fix the thing up. In the Commander's defense, we were all under the influence of unknown, foreign substances.

She did it, though. The ship looked pretty good. I suppose I'll have to hear from engineering whether that's actually the case.

Also that cost us money. We had to pay her for those services... a lot. But at this point, it's better than paying for it with my life and career.

The El Tajin is now safely tucked back in the shuttlebay. If the Commander in Chief asked me to step foot in it ever again, I'd risk the court-martial of refusing.

Conclusion:
Answered questions - Why we were so drunk, where we went, and what happened to the El Tajin.

Unanswered questions - Just about everything else.

Lessons learned - ALWAYS use a tricorder on new consumables.

I'm at the Helm again and working hard! I'm wary, however, that someone's been tampering with it because it's sluggish. Captain Syntron is being more crabby and ornery than usual, so I also have to keep an eye on him and perhaps sleep with a knife under my pillow...
