Captain’s Log, Stardate 60442.1: Captain Green-One-Left recording. When our probes registered a third supernova ignition, we knew that we were probably not dealing with any kind of naturally occurring cause – at least not one known to Federation science. And now, with three data points, it was clear that this “plague of stellar explosions” was progressing along a fairly straight line.
As the Clarke hovered in the shadow of our planetary shield, our sense of excitement began to turn to anxiety. I struggled to keep my dorsal emoting membrane from taking on a greenish color and vibrating as to panic the rest of the crew, but such a response can not be easily suppressed – and even less by one in Left phase!
Our dread turned to alarm as another stellar explosion ignited below the Clarke, leaving us no where to hide from the energetic wavefronts. It was time to run. Without recalling the probes, we engaged the slipstream drive and charted a course perpendicular to the path of stellar cataclysm. The ship’s drive easily out ran the wavefronts and soon our view was placid once again, as if the events never happened.
I’ve had Commander Tate put us on a course parallel to the apparent direction of travel of this disruptive phenomenon. Soon the wavefronts will catch us again, but we should be able to adjust to maintain a safe distance and observe to see if this awesome path of stellar chaos continues to propagate. I have called a meeting of the science chiefs in three standard hours for their evaluations and theories on what we’re seeing.
