From: Lt. R. Deitrich, Science Dept, Gamma Shift, USS Kumbhakarna.
To: Starfleet Science, CO: Commander M. Wiley.
Stardate: 11608.22
ETA Nindra Belt 2 days.
Pulsar timing array set up and awaiting deployment 24 hours after arrival.
Expect transmission failure in 8-10 hours due to pulsar radiation. Will keep transmissions active as long as possible, then by courier probe bi weekly until termination of tour in 180 days.

Safe arrival confirmed.
Pulsar timing array deployed.
Beginning to record telemetry.
Ensigns Dayo and Norisama on hand for preliminary analysis.

From: Commander F. Lorago. Chief Medical Officer, USS Kumbhakarna.
To: Starfleet Medical. CO: Doctor Raybourne.
Stardate: 11609.09
Medical files on entire crew attached for reference.
Commencing study with Gamma shift from 00.00.

From: Lt. R. Deitrich, Science Dept, Gamma Shift, USS Kumbhakarna.
To: Starfleet Science, CO: Commander M. Wiley.
Stardate: 11609.16
Pulsar telemetry enclosed. Note the rapid increase and decrease in frequency at close range.
Dayo suspects we are having an effect on the pulsar, despite our remove. Have tasked her with conducting a Class 3 probe study to verify hypothesis. I do not anticipate a positive result.

To: Starfleet Medical. CO: Doctor Raybourne.
Stardate: 11609.16
Gamma shift subjects remain physically healthy. Medical exams enclosed.
Nurse Bourke and Doctor Shan are making regular comparisons with Alpha and Beta shifts. No discernible alterations.

To: Starfleet Science, CO: Commander M. Wiley.
Stardate: 11609.23
Dayo's hypothesis proven false.
Is insisting on another week of experiments. Is refusing to listen to reason. Richard, I thought you sent me professionals.
Details of this week's telemetry results enclosed.

From: Ens G Dayo, Science Dept, Gamma Shift, USS Kumbhakarna.
To: Starfleet Science, CO: Commander M. Wiley.
Stardate: 11609.30
Please find enclosed a request for more man hours on pulsar proximity study. I have outlined in detail why I believe this is a vital part of our examination out here. With all due respect to Lt. Deitrich, I believe his vision is short-sighted.
I respectfully request he be ordered to Sickbay for further study.

From: Commander F. Lorago. Chief Medical Officer, USS Kumbhakarna.
To: Starfleet Medical. CO: Doctor F Raybourne.
Stardate: 116010.05
Frank, why the hell are you interfering with my patients? In future, please route any in-house requests for medical attention past me before committing me to an extra workload.
Dammit, man, this all hinges on me as it is, I don't need interference!

For the record, Deitrich has been examined. Determination: over taxed, and in need of leisure time. Have increased his dosage by 1 mg per day, and ordered to relax.
Details enclosed.

From: Ens. G. Dayo, Acting Head Science Dept, Gamma Shift, USS Kumbhakarna.
To: Starfleet Science, CO: Commander M. Wiley.
Stardate: 11610.18
Last week's transmission failed. Probe lost. Details for past 2 weeks telemetry enclosed.
Deitrich in custody after violent outburst. Ensign Norisama fatally wounded. Department now headed by me, solo.
Do our orders stand?

From: Commander F. Lorago. Chief Medical Officer, USS Kumbhakarna.
To: Starfleet Medical. CO: Doctor F Raybourne.
Stardate: 116010.25
Increase in medication produced undesirable effect in Lt Deitrich.
Dopamine levels high, serotonin rock bottom, Frank. All efforts to stabilise him were ineffective. Increasing medication useless. We tried to take him off it, and he suffered a major cardiac event. Unable to recover him.
He didn't make it.

Casualty Report:
Ens Norisama, deceased, major head trauma.
Lt Deitrich, cardiac arrest, transient ischemic attack due to cerebral embolism.

Understood.

TO: Commanding Officer, Sara Sumner, USS BREMEN
SUBJECT: Mission Orders

Captain Sumner,
The USS Kumbhakarna has not made its regular communication schedule for a total of 25 days, now.
It is on a mission of scientific import to study a pulsar in the Nindra System.

Communications in the vicinity of the system are disrupted by the unique radiation signatures emanating from the pulsar, but a schedule of comms send by courier probe have been expected twice weekly, and have failed consistently.

Your mission, which I believe you are uniquely suited for, is to travel to the Nindra system, and analyse the Kumbhakarna. Make contact any way you see fit, if, indeed, the ship and her crew are still present, but do not remain more than 24 hours at a time in the system itself. We believe that the pulsar's radiation may affect the health of your crew.

Comms to Starfleet HQ can only be assured through relay probe. Use subspace relay 31-s.

Stay safe, and report back as soon as possible.
The safety of both your crew, and of the Kumbhakarna crew is paramount.

Admiral Elsbeth Bantree
Fleet Command, Alpha Quadrant Operations
