The crew of the Coco-Muff took a detour and sent a landing crew to the surface of Bannerpole IX after a snowstorm took the ship by surprise.
Spock and Spock explored the terrain extensively, immediately discovering an intelligent life-form comprised entirely of snow. She took an immediate liking to our beloved first mates. They indulged her a photograph, which she promised to cherish until the day she melted.
Lt. Lily Pendragon was sadly overcome with distress when the harsh climate worsened. Fortunately, however, Spock and Spock were able to revive her with ease and she spent the rest of the mission in good health.
After coming across strange ruins, our studly crew mates determined that life one prevailed on Bannerpole IX, but some unforseen catastrophe (perhaps a severe blizzard?) destroyed much of the world. Nevertheless, we were able to report back to Starfleet with high spirits over the discoveries.
Live long and prosper, readers.
Captain Brigitte Lovell of the Starship Coco-Muff
