- Captain's log, stardate 3642.0
- We have ventured beyond the charted boundaries of Federation territory, reducing our speed to sub-warp velocity in the Prometheus solar system, near the Great Transtellar Rift. Our orders are straightforward. This is an exploratory mission: we are to seek out new life, and make contact with new civilizations. The unknown Promethean worlds wheel into view on the screen before me: gleaming spheres, circling endlessly in the darkness. After all these years, planets still look like toys to me, each one small enough to take in the palm of my hand, like the models hung from the ceiling in my room at the Academy. At times like these, I find myself falling back on a single though, a schoolboy's lesson, drilled into me at the Academy with maddening regularity. A fundamental principle which I once hoped was no more than a killjoy guideline cooked up by some sour, Earthbound, Federation desk-jockey, but which I have come to respect as genuine wisdom. The Prime Directive: you can look all you like, but don't touch.

- While attempting to penetrate the deepening mystery of the Promethean culture, the landing party narrowly avoided being swept away by an intense and dangerous sandstorm.
