Personal log, stardate 48175.3 supplemental, Lieutenant (junior grade) Ike Flemming recording. (Diplomatic Officer, USS Armstrong)
It would seem that the Captain is due to meet Admiral Hebert for a Tribunal on his behaviour in regards to the Prime Directive. I understand that relevant personal logs will be submitted.
Separately, I am now submitting a clarificatory entry to my previous log. Regretfully, it would appear that I allowed the emotions I had built up for my planned rendition of ‘…’ , the 100 year old classic that I was unable to perform due to a lack of an audience, to seep into my judgement. Rather than release them through the medium of telepathic song this emotion clearly clouded my reasoning. I believe that it is a common Betazoid problem. Or at least in my family.
Having slept on it is now clear to me that the Captain’s actions were entirely justified under the Prime Directive. And I am sure the Captain fully considered all arguments appropriately. I should remember to always trust my instinct about people.
