THESE ARE THE VOYAGES OF SHIPPY McSTARSHIP
Its continuing mission, to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly go where no one has gone before. We need to neutralize the homing signal. Each unit has total environmental control, gravity, temperature, atmosphere, light, in a protective field. Sensors show energy readings in your area. We had a forced chamber explosion in the resonator coil. Field strength has increased by 3,000 percent.
Sensors indicate human life forms 30 meters below the planet’s surface. Stellar flares are increasing in magnitude and frequency. Set course for Rhomboid Dronegar 006, warp seven. There’s no evidence of an advanced communication network. Total guidance system failure, with less than 24 hours’ reserve power. Shield effectiveness has been reduced 12 percent. We have covered the area in a spherical pattern which a ship without warp drive could cross in the given time.
Now what are the possibilities of warp drive? Cmdr Riker‘s nervous system has been invaded by an unknown microorganism. The organisms fuse to the nerve, intertwining at the molecular level. That’s why the transporter’s biofilters couldn’t extract it. The vertex waves show a K-complex corresponding to an REM state. The engineering section’s critical. Destruction is imminent. Their robes contain ultritium, highly explosive, virtually undetectable by your transporter.
