Chief Science Officers log Stardate 239504.19

The away team has been aboard the Type 9 shuttle SS Leonidas traveling at warp 5 for over two weeks heading for the unexplored region in the southernmost region of what the locals call the Prydon Cascade. Our orders are to explore System 569710. Long ranch sensors indicate that it is a system of 7 planets, number 4 seems to be class M. Spectrographic analysis of the two outermost planets indicates that they are large gas giants. The system seems surrounded by the remnants of a nebula. Space around the system has greater than normal Krylon gas and dilithium hydroxyls in what should be empty space. It is causing some minor errors with sensor telemetry but we are able to correct for the anomalous readings. These 7 planets are in the orbit of a G3-type yellow/orange star approximately 7 billion years old. The star has a solar mass of 1.1. and it is currently in a stable status, with no flares or other CME (Coronal Mass Ejection) events within the last month. Interestingly both the third and fourth planets fall within the habitable zone of this system. The Fourth planet which we are calling 569701-D is reading as a class M world on the outskirts of the habitable zone approximately 1.15 AU's from the star in a slightly elliptical orbit. Incredible I'm reading 11 moons of variable size and type. The third planet designated 569710-C is behind the star on our current trajectory. We will have to get in there to get a clean reading. We are nearly through the Ort cloud and are ready to drop out of warp, to begin our system survey. We have detected no ships or artificial satellites or signals of any kind. Lieutenant Matt Thompson Chief Science Officer USS Tomcat reporting.
