Chief Engineer’s Personal Log
I do not know where to even begin.
My original concerns over what we would find here were without substance. But I suspect that the consequences of the last day will linger for much longer.
The Zenians, their origin, the strange circumstances that left them stranded here, all things that need attention, need investigation, analysis, understanding, but I cannot focus. I keep seeing the ships exploding in space, keep seeing a phaser pointed at me, by someone that I trusted, someone I looked up to.
It’s almost as bad as after the events at the Academy.
Why? Why, and how, could someone willingly do such a thing? I know what anger can drive someone to do, all too well. Is it that? Is that all that separates us from savagery?
