Vela Kurv Academy School Log
Captain Janeway must determine who the real alien threat is when two entities are found to exist aboard the Star ship Voyager. Commander Chakotay and Chief of Security Tuvok return from an away mission and Chakotay has suffered depletion of all his neural energy. Thought to be brain-dead, Chakotay aids the crew in defending against a trioloic-based being called the Komar. The Komar live inside the nebula Chakotay and Tuvok were investigating so the ship returns to it seeking the weapon and/or attacker of Chakotay so that the ship’s Emergency Medical Hologram can devise a cure.
Thanks to Chakotay the crew escapes and the Emergency Medical Hologram is successful in reintegrating Chakotay’s disembodied intellect with his body. Janeway is able to deduct with technological deduction that Chakotay’s non-corporeal form is the defending entity trying to prevent Voyager from reentering the nebula. Her reasoning allows the crew to concentrate their defense with Chakotay’s guide on a course that leads the ship to freedom.
Protecting and preserving the integrity of the crew and their health and well being is a primary objective of a commander. The oath to serve works to aid crew and/or staff just as much as it does to defend one’s country; the oath to defend against such attack, I take to heart.
