Vela Kurv Academy School Log
After Captain Picard diverts the Enterprise-D to a secret captains meeting with an old friend, Starship Horatio Captain Walker Keel and some of Starfleet’s finest commanders, Picard finds the Horatio blown to bits just hours after the meeting. Picard has commander Data investigate transmissions to/from Starfleet and discovers a covert plan to conquer Starfleet Command. Picard decides to seek out the culprit of conspiracy and returns the Enterprise to Earth looking for answers.
Picard’s warning by the captains’ secret meeting bear out when Picard discovers that numerous key Starfleet personnel are being controlled by an extragalactic intelligence. Picard and Riker, second-in-command, are successful in stopping the intelligence and neutralizing its control but its origin and purpose remain a total mystery.
The intelligence that has taken over Inspector General Dexter Remmick only states that it seeks co-existence but to what end; the intelligence is the governing entity in control of each inhabited body at Starfleet command. This is one threat that remains a mystery. Not all missions of command will be resolved, that is why duty and virulence must always prevail, hopefully with a presiding balance of goodwill, and not blind endeavors like the results of a self destructed society in “The Arsenal of Freedom”, (see entry entitled: Vela Kurv Experiences “The Arsenal of Freedom” with the Star Trek TNG).
