SPACE DATE 2236.014
This is me at work.
The Remarkable is en route to pick up Admiral Grissom as he returns from a diplomatic summit. We’ll be hosting the Admiral for the next few days and preparations are underway to ready the ship for his arrival.
ADDENDUM: Due to a ... uh ... an encounter with a space-based life form we're diverting course to the nearest starpost for some minor, very minor, repairs. Just a few dents and some ... cleaning. Admiral Grissom will now link up with the GSV Bakersfield and continue on from there.
ADDENDUM 2: The nerve! The entire janitorial staff of the starpost, who may I add are employees of the Galactic Union, have gone on strike. They refuse to the finish cleaning of the exterior of the Remarkable, citing that the working conditions are "cruel and unusual." As I draft up my official complaint to High Command, I've asked Commander Powell to take charge of the cleaning efforts in the meantime. And by take charge I mean, since we only have one functioning Space Suit, he'll be doing all the work.
