Captain's log, Stardate 40823.4. With the repairs to the ship finished, Starfleet command has assigned the Resolution to survey a rogue comet. This particular comet was first observed by Vulcan astronomers over two thousand years ago. Previous observations of this comet had determined that It follows a strange orbit spanning multiple star systems, flung by their gravity wells from one to the other.
For the first time since it's discovery, it has returned to the position it was first observed at, now located within Federation space. Time is of the essence as the comet will not remain in Federation space too long. Soon, its strange orbit will take it into Tholian space, out of reach for another 2000 years. Starfleet doesn't want to miss this rare opportunity to learn more about this comet.
Captain LaSalle, Commander Lantara, Chief Engineer Kuranda, Dr. To'k, Lieutenant Ryanne, and Lieutenant Chandra are sitting together in the Ten Forward Lounge, listening with varying degrees of interest as Lt. Chandra is enthusiastically telling them about Fort'e Kahs'Khiori, the comet the Resolution has been tasked to survey.
