Log entries

  • Captain's log, stardate 8174.5
    We have achieved orbit around the planet code-named Babel. No further sightings of Enigma have been reported.
    When Ambassador Fox has beamed to the planet's surface, we will stage an exhaustive search for this intruder.
  • Captain's log, supplemental
    Commodor Benedict's orders are explicit; The agent Enigma is to be shot on sight but if she dies...
