The Captain's log on Deep Space 9 and the USS Defiant was the method used by the commanding officer to record the events the starship was involved in. (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine)

Entries Edit

Escape from the Jem'Hadar Edit

Stationed at Starbase 375 Edit

  • "Captain's Log, Stardate 51145.3. The Defiant has been operating out of Starbase 375, conducting forays into Dominion-controlled space. While the missions have taken a toll on my people, they remain determined to do whatever it takes to win this war, as do I."

Mission to Starbase 621 Edit

  • "Captain's Log, Stardate 51408.6. I've been aboard the Honshu for two days now and I still haven't spoken to him, although the doctors have assured me that he's made a full recovery. Maybe that's what I'm afraid of. Maybe I prefer to think of him as a crazy man, a broken man. He'd be less dangerous that way. As terrible as it sounds, there's a part of me that wishes he were dead. But that's a thought unworthy of a Starfleet officer. He lost an empire, he lost his daughter, and he nearly lost his mind. Whatever his crimes, isn't that enough punishment for one lifetime?" (DS9: "Waltz")

A little scientific mission Edit

  • "Captain's Log, Stardate 51474.2. The Defiant has been ordered to investigate a rare subspace compression phenomenon recently discovered in Federation space. This scientific assignment is a welcome change from months of combat duty against the Dominion. Three of my officers are taking a runabout into the anomaly's vortex. The runabout and its crew will be subjected to severe spatial distortion, so we have activated a tractor beam to minimize the effect."
  • "Captain's Log, supplemental. After completing repairs, we were able to return to the anomaly and successfully restore our runabout and its crew to their normal size. The surviving Jem'Hadar have been transferred to a Federation POW camp." (DS9: "One Little Ship")

Battle of the Prophets Edit

  • "Captain's Log, supplemental. The station's population has returned and repairs are underway. Major Kira has recovered from her experience, but my son is still in the infirmary." (DS9: "The Reckoning")

Convoy PQ-1 and Lisa Cusak Edit

  • "Captain's Log, Stardate 51948.3. With the safe arrival of convoy PQ-1 in the Vegan system, our escort duties are now complete and I've set course for home."
