SUBJ Assistance for a science experiment
Over the last year, the al-Haytham has been studying SN2417 J2587-7518, a supernova in the Doza Sector, ever since the completion of the survey on the Stardate 94102.8. The supernova was calculated to last 528.2 days, however, our probe shows us signs of the supernova degrading early, 327.12 days after the supernova. This is a very large discrepancy between our calculations and reality, and so, given your patrol route, I was wondering if you could divert course for a few days to study this change. The al-Haytham is currently undergoing some small but crucial repairs, which is why we are unable to study it at present.
A further request is if you would permit me to join you for this mission. I have been the team lead for the project, and I would very much like to oversee this next part of the project.

PS: Captain Se'Lai; Eunha, Rana, and I wish you and your family a peaceful and happy New Year. May God shower you with blessings and allow you nothing but joy in the next year.
