On SD 50202.18, the Manticore was enroute from Starbase 126 to wargames when an alien ship carrying Colonel Hesse of Fleet Intelligence intercepted us and demanded to come aboard. Shortly after his arrival on Manticore, a series of unexplained failures occurred onboard, including a sulfur leak in Sickbay, both warp cores becoming unstable and a hull breah in Engineering. The ship was pulled from the wargames and ordered to Renaissance Station for repair and debriefing with Consul General Melville, who is Colonel Hesse's boss.
