The mistakes of the past

Personal Log: Melody Jones

It seems our quiet and routine mission to sector 715 has taken an unexpected turn. As we were dealing with a Planet Killer before, now another face from the past has appeared. A probe, identical to the one that nearly destroyed all life on Earth nearly 100 years ago trying to contact Humpback whales has appeared. This time, instead of whale song, this probe is broadcasting a set of coordinates on a Starfleet frequency. These coordinates could finally reveal where these probes came from, who sent them, and why. I've altered our course to investigate.

We might also discover the fate of the USS Darwin, a Constitution class vessel that was sent to investigate the original probe and was never heard from again. I've discussed our new mission with both Rejal and Godding, both of who share my concerns about possible First contact with a race whos only knowledge of humanity so far has come from a species that was wiped off the face of the Earth at one point by our own greed and short-sightedness. Not exactly the best place to start a new relationship. Godding is going to increase security throughout the ship. I thought it a prudent move.

My daughter is continuing her relationship with Hayley and I am glad she has found someone who makes her happy. Her father still isn't fully on board with the idea but I think, in time he will come around. Draxx has other things on his mind at the moment, like having another baby. I must admit when he told me I was surprised, to say the least. That was after I managed to pry the information out of him in the first place. Another baby! To be honest, I had suspected something like this. Sansa has grown up so fast... Literally! And Drax missed more time with her than I, he wants a child who he can watch grow up and spend time with to shape and mould. Sansa is my baby girl, always. No matter what happens I love her and will always love her but raising a baby.... having her grow up normally...

My biggest fear is I don't know if I can give him what he wants. After my encounter with the Borg, that's what caused Sansa to grow up at the rate she has done. Would that happen every time I tried to have a baby? I'd have to talk to the Doctors to see if there was a way to overcome that. I've got a counselling secession with Caroline booked tomorrow, hopefully, she will have some suggestions.

Rejal and I made a full inspection of the ship today, stem to stern. I must say the crew continues to work to the highest standards and their service and dedication is a testament to the late Captain Barstow. I'm sure he would be pleased that they are honouring his memory in true Starfleet fashion. I also decided it was time to promote Rejal to Lieutenant Commander. He has shown commitment and dedication to the role and I'm sure he will continue to do so.

It will be a couple of days before we arrive a the coordinates, I hope the race we find are the forgiving type.

Our doubts are traitors and make us lose the good we oft might win by fearing to attempt.
