It was late and Zed was having a hard time trying to sleep. She had meditated for two hours and was unsuccessful. She relaxed her grip and sighed. She opened her eyes reluctantly and uncrossed her legs and stood up. Walking over to her desk, she sat down and activated the computer terminal.

"Captain's personal log stardate 4107.2, the Thunder Child was successful in bringing back the delegation after they completed their task. The ship immediately departed for the Delon Sector to investigate pirate activity. We are currently en route and should be there tomorrow. The ship is already on high alert and the crew is ready. Even so, I have ordered drills to be conducted at random intervals to improve reaction times. I feel that it is not a matter of if, but when we will make contact with Pirates."

Zed stood and walked over to the replicator, "Computer, I'll take a cup of Oolong tea, hot." In a moment a cup of brown liquid materialized in the replicator port. Steam rose up from the surface of the liquid as Zed picked up the cup with both hands and brought it up close to her lips. She blew across the top of the cup gently before returning to her seat.

She slowly took a small sip of the still quite hot fluid nearly bearing herself in the process. She walked back over to her desk, "End log." She grabbed a PADD off her desktop and took that along with the tea over to the couch. She sat down with one leg under her and set the tea down on the end table and began to go over the mission reports again. She didn't want to miss anything when it was time.
