MARCHLANDS — While assisting with repairs, the Constitution crew finds it puzzling that renowned figures like Commander Spock face challenges diagnosing their ship’s issues
Upon receiving a distress call from Captain James T. Kirk of the USS Enterprise NCC-1701, the USS Constitution NCC 9012-B, commanded by Commodore Jalana Rajel, promptly began sending over supplies and crew to facilitate repairs. Notably, several members of Kirk’s esteemed crew, including the legendary Commander Spock, found themselves at a loss when trying to pinpoint and address the anomalies within their ship’s systems.
Dr. Hforg Plooug, a Starfleet historian who chronicles the adventures of Kirk’s Enterprise, remarked, “When we actually study the history of this crew, we see that though they have several exemplary moments, they have even more mundane moments.” He went on to say, “Spock is, of course, brilliant in so many ways. But he was still just flesh and blood. Really, we only hear the exciting stories and not the ones about Kirk going to sickbay after getting his hand stuck in a jar of Tellarite candies.”
“That’s a true story, by the way. Look it up,” added Dr. Plooug.
Further elaborating on the crew’s performance, Dr. Plooug suggested that such behavior is still within the realm of expected outcomes, possibly indicating merely an ‘off day’ for the crew.
Sharing her observations, First Officer Lieutenant Commander Azura Ada stated, “The thing that I can’t get over is the overwhelming sense that something is off. I can’t place it or identify it. It’s just… off.”
While addressing the myriad challenges and peculiarities, members of the Constitution crew have theorized the root cause behind the Enterprise’s malfunction. They believe that the ship’s computer may have lost its ability to synchronize processes after encountering a corrupting force. Ensign T’Ama was the first to put forth this hypothesis, and dedicated teams are now actively probing its validity. However, the unexplained temporal appearance of Kirk’s Enterprise in the present day remains an enigma.
