From Christopher Jackson

Soman Drath, XO
U.S.S. Vanguard briefing room
following Knowledge is good... and Collecting Data.

Soman and the Captain traded glances.  As the crew quieted down, a cloud of 
uneasiness began to rise in the room.  Soman had to admit to a certain amount, 

Cynan: Sir, all I'm saying is we seem to be going into a situation, and I don't 
think we've been given all of the facts.  

Santos: This is what I know, Commander.  Tomonaga was a mystery from the moment 
her keel was laid.  Unlike Vanguard, she has a lot of re-engineered technology, 
based on assumptions rather than hard data.  Not all of it worked correctly.  
Commander, I hate mysteries as much as you do.  They interfere with  my morning 
breakfast.  That's why I intend to do a little investigating of my own before 
we arrive.  In the meantime, I'll need everyone to be alert and ready for 
whatever we come across.  Zena, please familiarize Mr. Vogel on Vanguard's 
"special abilities" and proceed with your modifications.

Soman: The bottom line, people is a highly advanced Starfleet vessel is sitting 
just outside the Ferengi's backyard and Starfleet wants it back.  They sent us 
because they know we can accomplish that task.

Santos: Anything else?

Scanning the room, the restlessness of the senior staff had subsided, somewhat. 
There still seemed to be a question or two hanging in the air.

Soman: Mr. Darkwater, I'll need you to remain on the Vanguard.  I have 
something, relating to this mission that will require you expertise.


Kirk: Spock, where the hell is that power you promised me?
Spock: One damn minute Admiral.
