The Colony [EVERBRIGHT COLONY SUMMARY]

Captain's log, stardate 70503.15...
This was... not the first mission I was hoping for. My people are haggard, they're hurt, they're sad, they're confused... I know they are, because I am.
June and the other colonists that survived are truly inspirations to us all. Their dedication to the dream of making that planet a new home, and their willingness to build atop their sorrow... it's amazing.
She's invited us to come back in a few cycles for their fall festival, and I'll do my damnedest to make it. I think seeing them alive and vibrant again would do a lot for the crew after what they've had to go through. I think it's important.
Hel thinks I need to see our shrink... I think she's right. I'll probably order everyone on the surface into her office to start analyzing this issue and working through it. It's difficult to say the least.
Lt. Vanek has been reassigned to the colony for now, so I'm down a Marine CO. It's a shame, he was a good man and I think we would have worked well together. Still, I'm glad the colony is in good hands.
I'm... tired. I need to get a day or two of down time once we get back to the station... But first... I think I'm going to go down and check out our hologram bar tender. I've heard he's a sight to see.
Gah... What a way to start this crew off... Hopefully it gets better from here.
