Captain's starlog, supplemental
We've contacted the Vulcan ship, Tal'Kir. They've agreed to meet us in three days to take the craft back to Earth. Hopefully, we won't have another visit from the Suliban before we reach the rendezvous point.
Captain's starlog, supplemental
A Vulcan transport is en route to tow the Tal'Kir. Fortunately, there were no casualties. Our long-range scanners show no sign of Tholians or Sulibans in our vicinity.
