Log entries Edit

  • Captain's log, supplemental 
    Our survey of the Rigel system will have to wait-- until we can figure out what in blazes is plaguing the federation colony on Beta Trilochus.
  • Personal log, Lieutenant Joes Tyler. 
    The situation on Beta Trilochus just keeps getting weirder and weirder.
    Under other circumstances, I might have been attracted to the woman interviewed today. Very attracted.
    Her name was Dana Taylor-- a structural engineer. Smart. Pretty, too.
    But she had this look in her eye... As if she might crack at any moment.
    Seems these nightmares were really getting to her. Nightmares everyone is having down here... about another world-- or maybe this world, a long time ago.
    She said she asw other life-forms in these nightmares-- the ones that are supposedly haunting the colony.
    I asked her what she thought these alien spirits wanted. And she actually had an answer for me.
    She said they resented our presence on their planet-- they hated us, in fact, for disturbing the lifelessness in which they'd rested for so long.
    She said tehy were haunting us because they wanted the place to themselves again. And they wouldn't stop until we were gone--
    -- And it would get a lot worse the longer they stayed.
    Then all of a sudden , she started spouting gibberish-- like that fellow Hoffman in the detention cell. Shouting till she was hoarse--
    --A And really violent!
    That's when i called for help.
  • Captain's log, supplemental 
    We had another outbreak of violence today.

BackgroundEdit

The title is taken from Hamlet, act I scene V: "I am thy father's spirit, doom'd for a certain term to walk the night, and for the day confined to fast in fires till the foul crimes done in my days of nature are burnt and purged away. But that I am forbid to tell the secrets of my prison-house, I could a tale unfold whose lightest word would harrow up thy soul, freeze thy young blood, make thy two eyes, like stars, start from their spheres, thy knotted and combined locks to part and each particular hair to stand an end like quills upon the fretful porpentine. But the details of this eternal blazon must not be to ears of flesh and blood." This dialogue was also delivered by Anton Karidian in TOS episode: "The Conscience of the King".
