Before the Battle

Captain’s Log, Stardate 2263.199
It’s been a while since I’ve made a log entry. First the extended leave, and now...
Summer is back aboard Defiant, and that has...opened up some opportunities which weren’t there the first time. I’m not sure whether I didn’t let myself consider it before or if things have just changed that much. It’s been nice having someone I can be so open with. I haven’t felt able to trust too many people for a while now. I mean, of course there’s Jerry. But this is a very different kind of trust. And it really couldn’t have come at a more welcome time.
I’ve also been a bit busier during my off hours. Can’t exactly complain about that either...
Computer, delete previous statement.
Anyway, Defiant is currently above Deriben II, trying to get our men off world as quickly as possible. With a Klingon fleet preparing to strike, we can’t leave so many wounded in harms way.
We’re currently laying a minefiled to try and slow the Klingon assault tomorrow. Summer’s idea. She’s a smart one, there’s no doubt of that. Certainly keeps me on my toes! In all seriousness though, I don’t know if it’s going to be enough. Doctor Kanizay is already on the surface, but there’s so many men down there. This base has been a fallback location for weeks. To have to abandon it means having to move every soldier who arrived during that time. I only hope we can buy them enough time up here.
