Log entries[edit | edit source]

  • Personal log, Commander Michael Burnham, Stardate 1029.46. 
    Any rational explanation for the seven signals that have appeared across the galaxy continues to escape me. And with it, perhaps, any chance of a relationship with my brother Spock. What did he see in them that I can't? My failure to understand feels like a failure to reach him at a time when he might me need me most."[src]
