Day Trek

 CAPTAIN’S LOG: STAR DATE —-2015, 0703

Klingons nowhere in sight. At 01300 hours a small dog docked with the ship. Ohura pleased, Spock indifferent. Followed us all the way to the farmers’ market on Aldebron with no outward effect. The transporter was down for routine repairs, but I did not know where to send the dog, anyway. Passed cascading nebulae and swam in the shallow seas of Minam . . . dog followed. Innocuous passenger, but Star Command not particularly happy. On the way back from Alebron, chanced upon passing ship, SS Worried Sick. Contacted bridge. Gleeful response. Dog, by pod, to tractor beam. Done. Now, for bourbon. Out.
