“Skipper, bogie on our Two” would’ve been noted just as well, hopefully.
Aw, that console’s gonna blow up in my face. I just know it.
If there’s one thing a lifetime of watching Star Trek has taught me, it is that there is no such thing as a sensor glitch, echo, or ghost. Every ping, no matter how weak, fleeting, or otherwise questionable, is always a hostile ship. Although a lot of crew members (Starfleet and others) never seem to learn.
Definitely, those finely honed senses are to be attended and trusted.
It very vaguely reminds me of that scene in Master and Commander where the young officer thinks he sees something, doubts himself, and decides not to do anything but the younger officer beside him immidiatly has the ship beat to quarters.
I can easily see the comparable situation being the captain immidiatly calls for red alert, and checks the data banks to see the sighting herself. It turns out the computers are only writing corrupt data in both the local and main banks, so there is no evidence, but instead of dismissing the officer’s warning she takes his warning even more strongly, given the situation.
it’s spelled… “i m m e d i a t e l y”. *sigh*
If that were a formal document or if there were an edit command I might care.
