Captain's log, stardate 110821.1253. After being forced to abandon our search for the Bonefish, we have begun to move back through the Dactes sector to resume our primary mission at our last destination here. We are currently passing through an open area of space that seems to be without any hostile forces or obstructions in our path. Hopefully, we will continue without incident for a while. That'll give Medical more time to help my wife out of her unexplained coma. Hope is starting to fade fast.

With the search for the USS Bonefish (NPC Ship) called off, starship Talisman comes about and resumes it's original exploration mission within the Dactes Sector. While performing a survey of a nearby protostar, Talisman's sensors detected a Melnovan freighter on course through the area. Second Officer Commander Lans Starsider, in command of the duty watch at the time, ordered the helm to avoid the sensor range of the freighter in order to not raise their suspicions. However, the freighter was engulfed in a solar flare when it came close to the protostar. Commander Starsider quickly ordered a rescue attempt to be launched.
Once the ship was out of danger from the protostar, Talisman's Medical staff tended to the freighter's crew. Scans of the cargo hold showed the ship was carrying weapons that were a fusion of Melnovan and Federation technologies. Further detailed scans of the Melnovan freighter were then ordered to search for more Federation technology on board.
