*Captain's Log, supplemental. It has been 30 years since I saw my archeology professor. His presence has taken me back to a time when I had considered a different career.
*Captain's Log, supplemental. We now are en route to a diplomatic conference on Atalia VII. I must admit I've lost my enthusiasm for those proceedings.
