Captain's Log:

Stardate: 200325

Alert Status: Red


The USS Veracruz has received a distress call from an unknown vessel. Have sent course, our long range sensors show a Hirogen ship chasing what appears to be a one or two person shuttle type vessel. Both ships are within Federation space, so we are going to attempt to resolve this issue without using force.

Given the history of the Hirogen, I am dubious at best as to our chance of success,

Intelligence Report
Lt. Salek, Chief of Intelligence, USS Veracruz
=============================================

During out last mission we rescued a hologram that asked for asylum. The Admiral ordered me to find case law on the subject.

Initial prescient. During their last year in the Delta quadrant Voyager had sporadic communications with the Alpha quadrant. The Doctor, an EMH hologram, had written a book that was published and in retrospect he wanted it remove from circulation.

A hearing was held. The courts ruled that, while they couldn't yet judge if The Doctor should be defined as a sentient life form, they were willing to extend the definition of an artist to include holograms such as The Doctor. This struck the first blow in attaining more rights for sentient holograms,

Historically the Hirogen used some of Voyager's holographic technology to create new hunting grounds and prey. The holograms they created the Hirogen considered sentient.

Some jurisdictions have ruled a computer program sophisticated enough is sufficient that a hologram could be considered self-aware or sentient. Nothing in the ruling defines "sophisticated enough".

The is no case law for amnesty regarding holograms. Providing amnesty, for any life form, is traditionally left up to individual governments. The Federation has a unified amnesty protocol which also does not have case law regarding holograms.

Voice Recording:

I set a course for the source of the distress signal and we quickly learned that the ship in distress was using an automated distress signal. The shuttle was also being pursued as prey by the Hirogen; it was one of those ridiculous hunting games that the Hirogen is obsessed with.

Fortunately, we reached the shuttle, which was called the Volga Shuttle, and managed to rescue it's holographic pilot after a brief skirmish with its Hirogen hunters. Once we were able, we beamed the holographic pilot to the Bridge and activated emergency holo-emitters so the pilot could be there.

We ended up escorting the Hirogen to the border after the skirmish was over.
