General Distress Call

This is Captain Murphy of the USS Guadalcanal.
The USS Guadalcanal has suffered a general systems failure after being drawn into an unidentified phenomenon in the Donatu system. We have been thrown what we believe to be more than a thousand light-years, and our library computer has been seriously compromised. We have no way of plotting a course home or even determining our general location. We only know that our most powerful visual scans cannot find any easily identifiable stars. The only clue we have to cling to is a word that seems to have imprinted itself on our computer course. That word is AEGIS. Any ships receiving this, please consult the Federation databanks at frequency . Communicate any information to my personal subspace channel, via code abukoff (at)

Ballad of House Abukoff:
Yet if my line should die,
it dies with its teeth in the enemy's throat,
it dies with its name on the enemy's tongue.
For just as mere life is not victory,
mere death is not defeat;
And in the next world I shall kill the foe a thousand times,
(from John Ford's "The Final Reflection")
