Captain's Log, Stardate 2263.358;
Defiant has finally arrived in Earth orbit. After the events of the last few weeks, the crew is badly in need of a break like this. We're all bruised and tired. A week or two at home will do us some good. And with the war over, we can finally turn our attention toward more peaceful pursuits.
I find our presence here relieving, but it doesn't entirely let me off the hook. Alina's trial is set to take place in a few days. With Defiant in Earth orbit, I don't have a great excuse to avoid the proceedings. That said...do I really want to get tangled up in all that? If my father is going to use it as an excuse to attack my record, maybe it's not something I want to be in the audience for.
I suppose I have a few days to think on it. In the meantime, I intend to get my feet on the ground briefly. Get myself grounded before we head back out there.
