Commander Leigh Jacobs' Personal Log.

We are currently enroute to Starbase 239 and I feel like I'm going to go crazy. The Valiant is the second command that I've lost. The USS Indefatigable wasn't my fault but Admiral Robertson had ensured that the damage was done, and now the Valiant--literally blown out from under me. However, I am grateful that most of the crew managed to survive the ordeal with the Gluak. To be honest, I would be happy if I never even herad of that species ever again but something tells me that won't be the case. Valywen is understandibly shaken over the ordeal. Being new to space travel and already endured a battle, and the destruction of a starship would shake up anyone.

However, she has requested that if possible, that she stay with the crew. Being around familiar faces would be best for her now, but I have no idea what awaits us for when we arrive at Starbase 239. We may be assigned another ship or the more likelihood, we will all be reassigned to other posts and I'll be lucky to even have a career after this. Well, if anything, my friendship with Evan Lougheed seems to be becoming something more personal and that seems to be a comforting thought to be honest. I never gave myself time for a relationship--always driven by my job and duty. Maybe it's time for that to change but only the future will tell.
