Captain's Log: Stardate 10152.1
While on a routine mission to secure dilithium for the warp drive (diesel fuel,) I slipped, twisted my ankle, and later spent 5 hours at the Emergency Room at Starfleet Medical. Orders are I stay off the ankle for 48 hours and stay off the Enterprise for a couple of weeks. Although I will follow those orders for this week, I will do my best to return to active duty by the week after. In the meantime, the crew will continue on without me under the full command of our first officer, Captain Richard Schillay. Lt. Commander Dave Beaver will now be First Officer. I trust all will go well as the crew is the finest I've ever served with.
