Lt. jg Flemming’s personal log, stardate 48175.3 supplemental

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.
