"Computer, start log."
"Let's see... where was I. Last I updated my personal log was about Dr. Death. Not very much later that same day, Legate Jikall called for available crew. Since I was available, I responded."
"Maybe a bad idea. Kel du'Mag was also present, so we were with three. By the way, the Kel is one of the shortest Cardassians I've ever seen in my life. We flew towards uum... I don't exactly remember. It was an Orion base, I believe. I was not manning any console, so I couldn't monitor very well where we went to. Probably one orbiting Rigel or somewhere close to that. We were in an Aeon Flux, so the trip was fairly short."
"We announced our inbound and they gave us permission to land on their base. So, we all went to the docking bay, awaiting Orion representatives. Before we knew it, we were beamed somewhere at once. It was a brig."
A sigh can be heard.
"And a dirty one too. An Orion stepped in the security chamber and was kind of taunting us. Apparently we had to announce our landing, but uh.. they gave us permission. It's all quite trivial, really. There'd be no improvement in the situation if the other Cardassian hadn't shown up. Yeah, there was a Cardassian who's apparently working for the Orions. The Legate seemed to know him although I wouldn't know from where. Guess my stay on a remote place for so long rots my brain."
"The Legate was allowed out of the brig and went with that other Cardassian out of the security room. After a while they both returned, and the other Cardassian told the Orion to release us. I'm not sure what they talked about, but I guess it has to do with the trivial 'regulation' and the CSV Vetar."
"After our release, we left as soon as possible. We'd get the CSV Vetar back another time, I'm still sketchy on the details. Something about one week for investigations. We all returned safely on Varohdan Nor, where I'm currently in the crew quarters. Pfooey... I'm tired. Getting brigged... and tomorrow is another trip to somewhere far. I better go sleep now."
"Computer, end log."
