I'm technically breaking protocol by sending you this message, but... If you'd seen the number of ways this situation could possibly fragment, and you were in my position... well... ::pause:: Aresee, I'm giving you a warning: This situation is not what it seems. Don't take it at face value; don't trust anyone. I know for a fact that you were attacked on your way to Starbase 118. That's only the latest in a string of odd coincidences surrounding your ship and this mission. Don't let your guard down. Take this to the captain if you need to convince her to use extra caution, but just remember that I cannot tell you anything more. I can't cause the timeline to shift. ::pause:: I wish I could. When I see what's ahead for you...I wish I could. ::pause:: Do what you need to do, Aresee. Good luck. ::pause:: I love you.
