OPERATIONAL DEBRIEFING FOLLOWS….
4LD deployed through the Hjorden-Arcturus Gate to explore. Cleared initial sector of intense infestation of cosmozoans and allowed arrival of the expeditionary convoy commanded by the female Hjorden, Petrach-Kal.
Explored nebulae in sectors to trailing and trailing-rimward. Took sensor readings and samples after clearing away more cosmozoans. Recorded a fleeting contact with a mobile high-density energy source assumed to be a starship of unknown origin. Profile does not match any known vessel.
…OPERATIONAL DEBRIEFING ENDS
CURRENT DIVISION INTELLIGENCE:
High levels of cosmozoans will require frequent deployment of beacons during patrols and/or culling of local populations to safe levels.
Unknown starship drive signature represents potential First Contact situation with alien intelligences.
Sectors adjacent to the base camp need to be scouted. Science teams will require additional sensor and sample data from any additional new types of nebulae. Security for science teams and diplomatic encounters will need to be tight, effective and carefully measured. Over or under reaction could be fatal this far from support and could create long-lasting issues for the USFP.
Systems maintenance and endurance are of primary importance. All care should be taken to minimize damage to any system.
Xenology and Astrogation from first principles should be revised.
Rapid execution of fleet orders should be practiced to ensure windows of tactical opportunity are not lost and that disengagement can be executed on a hair-trigger.
