“Helm. Set course for the Ghulion system. Warp six.” ordered Krolo as took his place in the command chair. “And drop us out just at the edge of the system.”

“Aye, Captain.” came the flight officers reply.

Alen looked over and noticed the look from his XO. He lifted a single finger to indicate for her to wait a moment and then he activated the comms with his controls.

“Attention all hands. This is the Captain speaking. We are currently in route to the planet of Coppelius. After the recent events of Frontier Day, there have been reports of multiple Borg vessels in various areas. We have been assigned to locate one of these vessels and observe it. I know what many of you are thinking, and I too hope it’s just that simple. But as Starfleet officers, we’ll be ready if it isn’t. Captain Krolo out.”

Alen could see the look of apprehension in the First Officer.

“The Borg?” questioned Tod. “Sir. We’re a California class. We’re no math for a Borg ship.”

“I understand, Number One. Luckily for us, it’s just a probe. As I said, Command just wants us to observe and report. And as I was so vehemently reminded, if we don’t bother them, they won’t bother us.”

With a break in the conversation, Ki turned to her command team.

“Course laid in, Captain.”

“Let’s go.” answered Alen with a hand wave toward the view screen.

  • Quick, easy, and straightforward! I love the small tension we get within the command team. The CO isn't happy about having being reminded of his duties by Starfleet. I am interested to see this play out in the larger story you're writing and see how the threat of a Borg probe impacts each of the characters. Looking forward to the next!

  • I can feel the anxiety! Great follow-up. Yes, a Cali-class against a Borg ship would be severely outmatched. I hope all goes well for them!

  • The Captain is very good at calming the crew, even thought a Probe is also quite dangerous to deal with. The post is to the point and they are going towards the location with a fair warning but also a good motivational reason stated by the Captain. Wonderful work!
