Captains Log Stardate 63555.1 - We have just entered a Star System that Long Range Sensor scans show was recently abandoned by The Borg.  It is not known why the Borg left the system, so we have come here to investigate. End Log.

Helm: We are approaching the system captain!

Captain: Drop us out of warp and engage impulse engines.  Begin Scanning!

Science: Scans show that the system has 11 planets captain, The 3rd, 4th and 5th planets are in the stars habitable zone. The 6th planet is Class-L, the 1st and 2nd planets are very close to the Star and contain high amounts of heavy metals and the 7th, 8th, 9th and 10th planets are all Gas Giants........Sir, I cannot get a reading on the 11th planet, something is interfering with our scans, some kind of directed interference from inside the system.

Captain:  Hmnnnn - 3 planets in the Habitable zone - thats very interesting. Helm - lay in a course to the 3rd planet, lets start there.

Helm: Aye Sir....Entering orbit in 15 seconds

Captains Log, Stardate 63557.8 - Intensive scans conducted on the three habitable planets of this system reveal extensive civilization of a pre-warp stage of development. Unfortunately, there is no population left and it is apparent that these peoples were assimilated by the Borg. There is, however, no conclusive evidence of just why the Borg left the system. I have ordered a wider search of the system to include all the planets and moons. End Log.

Helm: Sir, standard orbit achieved at the eleventh planet

Captain: Very good. Science? You can begin scanning the surface.

Science: Beginning scans. Planet appears...

Captain Sandecker placed the PADD down on his ready room table and glanced at his senior staff sitting around the table.

That was the end of it. The entire crew were killed when the system's star suffered a nutrino burst which sterilized the entire system. The Conestoga was found adrift orbiting the eleventh planet in the system.

Preliminary reports are that they died swiftly. Scans of the system's star reveal it to be a rare type that regularly emit a massive nutrino burst every thirty-five hundred Terran years. It was just bad timing that the ship was here when it burst. They had no reason to suspect the barrage that killed them, and now the system is safe for another thirty five centuries.

Science? You can begin scanning the planet now, and we'll pick up where the Conestoga left off. Dismissed.


The science officer arose and left the ready room and made her way to the science station on the bridge. Keying in several commands, the massive Galaxy class starship began emitting graduated pulses of data collection energy to the eleventh planet in the system. 

The unique energy of her passive deep-penetration scan passes through the outer layers of bedrock and encountered the web of conduits laying beneath the surface. As with the Conestoga's earlier attempt before her, the Galaxy's PDP scan triggered the planets defensive reaction, and the planet wide system of layered conduits emitted it's highly pulsed directional wave at the systems stellar mass.

Within seconds, the pulse triggered the suns nutrino core to erupt in a correlated blast wave that swept through the solar system at the speed of light, engulfing the Galaxy starship in a death dealing sweep that sterilized the ship.

Captains Log: Stardate 63612.4 - The USS Stanton, upon entering the system, has found the missing Galaxy Class ship USS Grypon. We are conducting several scans of the nearby planets in order to solve the mystery of the Gryphon's fate. End Log.

Captain: Science? You can begin your scans...........
