Captain's Log, supplemental
Lt. Cmdr Green Armadillo, commanding officer, USS PVD-2
I can't say I really got to know Lozza very well. Her file says that she was occasionally stubborn, but generally congenial and a member in good standing of the Founders of the Federation association. I wouldn't say that she was an uncommon quality officer, but she was a hard worker. I vaguely remember her face, and past missions she carried out without a hitch. She's not the first crewman I've lost, and undoubtedly won't be the last, but the sheer unexpected nature of the incident sticks with me.
Every day, I approve dozens of assignments, big or small, routine or rare. Sometimes I knowingly send men and women - usually well aware of the danger - off the ship and into harms way. And sometimes the person who does not come home is the quiet crewman running routine tests in the very heart of my own ship. Such, I suppose, is the burden of commanding a Federation starship.
