I was tasked to lead my first away team for the USS Maxwell. At first, it seemed it would be a daunting task but the crew and leadership of the USS Maxwell helped the experience be one of both pleasure and success. There are so many to thank for this positive experience but at the top are Admiral Gerhadsen, Lt Cmdr Drewski Northman, and LT Siobhan Crystal but there are oh so many more to thank also. Among my chief concerns for the team was for their safety but I also tried to quickly learn enough about each team member to then provide them the freedom to perform their tasks in the way they would do best.

This team's task was to explore the planet's immediate forest areas and we identified some interesting flora and fauna but among them was an unexpected coffee plant. The team collected eight of the coffee plants and some of the fruits for further analysis and growth aboard the Maxwell. The mission task was accomplished through the hard word of the team and every team member contributed to the success of the goal. I am honored to be able to learn and serve with this crew!

The operations with the first contact race continues to be exciting and interesting! Ra'Vassh seems quite in tune with many of the surroundings and it is interesting to work with them in the discoveries of the history of the planet. They are such an fascinating race although I'm unsure they fully understand all of the technology that appears to be in operation on this planet. May the waters continue to bless them.

The discovery of a spacecraft with an approximate age of 52,000 years was similarly most intriguing. With the administrator's permission, we were able to beam the entire ship to the shuttle bay where it was discovered the ship retained some power after that duration but only to power the basic functions but not the engines. Chief Engineer Jak was able to use a fusion generator to recharge the ship. I monitored the power flows while Jak monitored the generator and Mr. Northman monitored the ship's systems from inside the craft.

Upon completion of the charge to 100% capacity, the team of Drewski and Jak and my tag-along self were able to power up the engines and actually fly the ship out of the shuttle bay, one pass around the Maxwell and back inside. All systems aboard the ancient ship remained stable. A 52,000 year old space vehicle still with seals, hull, life-support and control systems all intact and functioning is nothing less than astonishing.

Of course, all this is made possible by the capable crew of the Maxwell. As an ensign, I am learning much from these fine friends... not just crew, but friends. I am truly honored to serve with this crew. Although I contribute what I am able, I always encouraged and learn more than I can contribute - as it should be.

I have been somewhat lax about updating my personal log. It is my intent to note personal exchanges, successes and learning opportunities I encounter while assigned to the Maxwell. I continue to be so very pleased to be working with this crew, my friends. It becomes quite easy to care about my fellow crew.

While at the science station on the bridge, I noted Science Crew Auranum not looking quite his normal self and inquired if he was okay. He agreed he didn't quite feel right. He was ordered to report to sick bay by the CO and he left the bridge. I did note he had not secured his station and I took care of that. But also, I observed an unusual hesitation as he was leaving the bridge as if he was perhaps confused. I requested and was granted permission to leave the bridge and escort Auranum to sick bay. Before securing the science station, I inquired his whereabouts from the computer and he was located in the opposite direction of sick bay but at least on the correct deck. I found him still at the computer's last location and offered to lead him to sick bay where he was then placed in the care of Dr. Vashir.

As the ship was mid-travel, we were provided some time to consider the science we rely upon each and every day. I decided to take advantage of this opportunity to explore a personal theory. Chief of Science, Commander Northman granted permission to try an experiment I have been considering for some time involving the efficiencies of the isolinear chips in the computer cores. A single core and single isolinear chip was selected from the computer's spare pool as to not potentially impair the operation of the computer on board. The results of this experiment are to be included in the science log, supplemental for the USS Maxwell.

I cannot say enough about this great crew. I wish to specifically thank Admiral Gerhadsen and Commander Northman for both their fine leadership and confidence in their crew to allow them some time to explore and grow. It has been written the best leadership always brings forth the best crew and, perhaps this is but one reason why the USS Maxwell excels.
