USS Za resumes exploration of the cosmos

HOCKTIN SYSTEM — After a frightening fight against computer malfunctions, the crew of the USS Za, NCC 65305, has managed to repair one of the most unique vessels in the fleet and get back to their mission.

When we last heard from the Za, technical difficulties had disabled the entire ship and put the crew in desperate peril. With no other ships in the vicinity to help with repairs, the crew raced against the clock to find a solution that would put them back on course and get systems back online.

Members of the senior staff, including Chief Engineer Cmdr. Alex Blair, returned to the Za to find her disabled after their recent away mission. With her chief engineer back onboard – and the members who had been trapped in the holodeck finally freed – repairs were jumpstarted.

Multiple members of of the crew had been injured by that holodeck malfunction, and were treated in sickbay, though a new medical officer and her pet – having both arrived with Cmdr. Blair aboard the shuttle, were not a welcome sight among some members of the staff.

“That new medical officer brought a filthy dog into sickbay,” complained Chief Medical Examiner Lieutenant Alosia Freymott. “The beast was probably flea-ridden and full of diseases that will require a complete sickbay disinfection.”

With the crew on the mend, the computer and engines restarted, an investigation began into the cause of the ship-wide issue. Preliminary reports suggested sabotage, but further analysis determined that specific flaws in the Za’s computer programming were not able to mitigate a series of cascading failures. Starfleet reports that these issues will be cleared up with a scheduled upgrade at a starbase.
