Captains log, star date 1027.08. We are exploring a weird planet. I have beamed down to see what is on it. We have seen everything except civilization. We are beaming back up to the ship to see what Spock has to say about it. Spock believes there is civilization so we beam back down. We are circling still in orbit.
We finally figured it out. Spock has been determinated. His brain has been taken out. And they have encountered some unfortunate things.
