The beginning

Commander,

With the help of the subspace research department, I have identified the subspace layer in the previous message. The data file is attached.

Now that I have this data, I would like to perform experiments as soon as possible, ultimately culminating with a journey there to contact my brethren.

For this, I would likely need a shuttle or runabout with sufficient deflector capability to open a rift. Hopefully, this journey will accelerate my studies by learning all they have mastered regarding psychic potential.

I had to give this some thought, plus I’m generally swamped by requests and such so apologies.

I’m not against some experiments given proper safety requirements are met. The use of a small craft to travel though is beyond my ability to authorize. I’ve CC’d Captain Varley as authorizing the gear will come to her but authorizing a mission like that is also a bit beyond simple.

Your thoughts Captain?

Commander, Ensign.

Given that I am unfamiliar with the particulars of this project, I’m not in a very good position to offer thoughts. If you’d like a second opinion, feel free to fill me in or direct me to the details of what’s being proposed. If we’re opening shuttle-sized rifts into subspace we will need to ensure Operations and local traffic can be alerted appropriately.

It does sound interesting so far. I await your reply.

I will do my best to outline the project.

As you may or may not know, I have been working with Dr. Maldar on a theory regarding the potential interactions between psychic abilities and subspace. The subspace layer the Suspirian Ocampa live in, called ‘Exosia’, is reported to be a ‘realm of pure thought’. I believe expiraments and a journey may provide great insight into said project.

Also, these Ocampa were reported to be experts of both pyrokinesis and biomancy, two fields of psychic talent that are not exhibited by any known Federation species. I would like to explore said talents.

Lastly, I have a personal reason for wanting to make the trip. I think it would be inappropriate to discuss it here, but if you must know, I can speak about it in person.

Ensign, Commander, I’m prepared to authorize this expedition as requested. Suitable shuttlecraft can be requisitioned from Operations. It should go without saying that safety is the primary concern regarding any intrusion upon subspace, and so it must take precedence over even the purpose of the expedition itself.

I advise you limit your time there to a bare minimum of what you aim to achieve. If you succeed in this and return safely, I’ll be much more likely to authorize any succeeding trips than if an accident occurs due to oversight.

Good luck.
