SUBJ Concerning the Actions of ENS Lara Aruyo
I understand that you were present on the mission to attempt contact with this mysterious Scryer information network, and acted as the ranking officer of the away team. According to Captain Se'Lai's report, Ensign Lara Aruyo of the U.S.S. Lexington participated in the mission, during which she fired a weapon at the pirate representative 'Winters' apparently without provocation. I have also received a complaint from the Intelligence officer in charge of preparing the operation alleging that Ensign Aruyo's actions were directly responsible for the failure of the mission's primary objective.
As a trusted senior officer of Starfleet who was on scene during the events described above, I was hoping you would be able to shed more light into Ensign Aruyo's actions. Even if you did not witness the weapon firing personally, your presence on the field makes you significantly more informed on the situation then I could ever be from going through logs and reports, and your thoughts would be very much appreciated.
Captain Leila Omar
Commanding Officer, U.S.S. Lexington
