Captain's Log, Stardate 2263.208,
The Defiant is finally underway on its return trip to Starbase Arcadia. As the summer months of this year pass, the war doesn't seem much closer to conclusion, but daily hostilities are slowing down. Ultimately, the supply chains couldn't keep up with the demand on either side, and the pace of the conflict has had to slow. The larger fleet groups have retreated to their corners. Construction on forward bases has begun.
This comes as a mixed blessing. While the development indicates that this may well be a long drawn out conflict, it does allow time for us to leave the front. I've already been in touch with Starfleet Command. A new mission for us is being lined up the moment Defiant is in proper shape again.
This time, we're being sent into Tholian Space, to try and broker a deal which might cut off that portion of the border. I won't pretend to love this mission. The Tholians aren't the friendliest group around, but it will at least be a nice break from the continuous battles. It will also give us some time to investigate some of the more concerning things going on behind the scenes.
