Stardates: 2010.35-37: I've been outside the Sirius Sector for a good part of the past 2 days, within striking distance of the Neutral Zone. I've heard other junior officers talking about significant action against the Klingons, but those people have no idea what I've seen. I've been assigned some specific orders by one of the admirals at Starbase One. The Klingon High Command seems to be split between those who want open war with the Federation, and those who would prefer to rebuild the Khitomer accords. I've been escorting diplomats, rescuing prisoners, and I've even gone up against one of their ambassadors in a high end Klingon Battleship.
I was involved in a major fleet action at Starbase 24, where 15 Federation ships took on several Klingon battlegroups. On the way home, we took a side trip to visit Wolf 359, and pay our respects at the site of the worst Borg attack in the Alpha Quadrant. As I type this entry, we're on our way to the Briar Patch, a particularly nasty part of space that's seen some worst skirmishes.
What's amazing to me is how fast some of the folks I graduated the academy with are being promoted. The Federation shipyards must be working 24/7 to keep up with demand, as It seems like everyone in my class is now commanding a ship. And with good reason too. There seems to be almost constant action on any number of fronts whether with the Klingons, Romulans, even the Borg. My first mission out of the academy wound up face to face to those soulless bastards. It led to me getting my own ship, but I don't think it was worth the cost.
