Single Report for the USS Spectre Log Entry # 172

The ship has now entered the Antarchus system and is four hours distant from the last known coordinates of the Borg transmission. Our mission specialist, Doctor Samantha Gunnell has detected field variations in the Subspace Rivers base signature, indicating that Borg interference of the core matrix is now taking place. If the Borg achieve active assimilation of the rivers control mechanisms, then the outlook for the Federation is at best, bleak.... Catastrophic at worst. Only time will tell what the outcome will be - and time tells no lies.
