Captain Jenkins leaned backward in his chair pressing his fingers together as he closed his eyes for a few moments before speaking to the computer.
“Computer, begin Captain's Log recording”
After a few moments the computer acknowledged the captain's command and then awaited for the log to be started.
“Captain's Log, stardate 86122. The year is 2409 and things could not be more dire than they currently are. The Federation has been providing aid to the Romulan Star Empire since the destruction of Romulus in 2387. During this time the alliance between the Federation and the Klingon Empire has broken down into an all our war, and to make matters worse Borg activity has been detected near the edge of the Alpha Quadrant.
However despite these problems, it does feel good to properly be sat at the big chair of my own starship which is only possible because of my father, Admiral J'gred. With that in mind, the Pureshasu will be undertaking it's Maiden Voyage. This will be to rendezvous with a IRW, commanded by Commander Isha Keirianh who will also be the ship's First Officer.
This brings me back to the crew. Most of my crew seem to have been adjusting to the Pureshasu without much problem, and I'm extremely thankful to Ria my sister for accepting my offer to be the ship's Chief of Security as well as it's Tactical Officer. I know that her security and tactical expertise will be invaluable in future endeavours. Computer end recording.”
Captain Jenkins then closed his eyes once more before pushing his log computer shut. Just then a communication came in through the room's audio speakers.
“Bridge to Captain Jenkins, we have received permission to depart from McKinley Station.”
“Understood Ensign, I will be joining you on the bridge shortly.”
With that, Captain Jenkins stood up from his chair as he exited his ready room boldly ready for whatever may come at him during the Maiden Voyage.
