Captain's Log

Two weeks ago, we arrived in the Betazed system for general resupply. We're a busy ship, and aren't likely to have another major supply stop for a long time. The USS Tranquility has been under my command for nearly one full Year, since it launched.

It's now the beginning of January, 2394

We're currently at Betazed. Tranquility has been operating with a reduced compliment of personnel, but I am at last being provided a full crew by Starfleet. My guess - we're not the disaster they were expecting. Tranquility has had its successful test drive. Additionally, I'm allowing all members of the crew to take advantage of Shoreleave while we're here on Betazed.

Betazed is hosing the Convention for Practices in Science and Exploration. Tranquility is playing a part in the exhibition, so I'll include what details are relevant to us in this report. We've got our own booth, and during the convention the majority of the Tranquility Council should be paying a visit to us. The convention itself is a public forum and exhibition to allow ordinary citizens to become involved in Starfleet operation. It's meant to educate the public, naturally, but the real draw will be the votes taking place. Typically, Starfleet exposes a small selection of policy and procedure to public referendum. If concerns have been raised by the public regarding specific issues of Starfleet policy or operation, they are subject to reform after the results of a referendum.

There's a might bit of political charge to the event, as you can imagine. I cannot actively encourage or dissuade anyone on the crew from participating, because I'm a Starfleet Captain, but I hope some of them will be willing to get involved. Unfortunately, we may not be staying for the duration of the entire convention. It will last until the End of March, but we may not remain for the entire scope of the event.

Personally, organising Project Tranquility and the resupply of the ship has kept me very busy. I won't have a lot of time for sight-seeing, but I hope I'll get a little of Betazed before we leave. There's nothing more at the moment.

End Log, Tyro Adina.
