SummaryEdit

When Captain Kirk is knocked unconscious on a mission to a pocket universe, Lieutenant Uhura must assume command of the mission and find a way to return the crew to their own universe.

Log entriesEdit

  • Communications officer's log, stardate 5989.6. 
    While charting the remote Huygen cluster, the Enterprise has encountered a curious spatial phenomenon.
    What initially appeared to be a wormhole is in fact the entrance to a pocket universe a fraction the size of our own.
    The regular bursts of quantum matter within it seem to contain repeated, structured phrases... an indecipherable language of pure energy...
    Captain Kirk has assembled a landing party to run the gauntlet between the quantum discharges. We are to investigate the anomaly and if so, to communicate with it.
  • Acting captain's log, Lieutenant Uhura reporting. 
    We are nearing the entrance to the pocket universe. In the absence of Captain Kirk, I will initiate First contact procedure should it become necessary.
    Until I hear otherwise, from Mr. Spock, the welfare of this mission and crew are my responsibility.
  • Acting captain's log, supplemental. 
    I'm returning to the primary cluster at the heart of the anomaly. If I'm right, it could be the key to sending a distress signal back to the Enterprise.
    I plan to use one of the quantum pulses as a carrier for the signal. However, this entails making contact with the being's consciousness.
    After the way it treated the shuttle, I rate my changes somewhere between slim and none, but I have to try...
    ... I don't think I've ever felt so alone.
